WCSF Game 1 Lineup

From Khan(!) here are tonight’s lineups for both teams:

Detroit:

Franzen-Datsyuk-Holmstrom
Filppula-Zetterberg-Bertuzzi
Draper-Helm-Eaves
Miller-Abdelkader-Cleary

Lidstrom-Rafalski
Kronwall-Stuart
Ericsson-Lilja

Howard
Osgood

San Jose:

Mitchell-Thornton-Marleau
Clowe-Pavelski-Setoguchi
Heatley-Couture-Malhotra
McGinn-Nichol-Helminen

Murray-Boyle
Vlasic-Blake
Demers-Huskins

Nabokov
Greiss

Thoughts…

  • Mitchell?  Um…ok.
  • The 2nd line is actually their most dangerous by far.  Ryan Clowe is San Jose’s Johan Franzen…should be a good match-up
  • Heatley on the 3rd line?  Is it possible to demand a trade during the play-offs?  When Stevie-Y had him playing the checking role in the Olympics, I bet he requested a move, but refused to go to Switzerland.
  • Helminen is a buddy of mine.  Die, Dwight!  Nothing personal…it’s just business.
