I like where Zadina is slotted. Better than previous games playing with Glendening. Nice adjustment by Blashill there.

But this bottom 6 is trash. Tampa’s depth is going to eat them alive.

Why? Just because they have two fourth lines and one of them has a cap hit of nearly $10M?

One of the comments by one of the announcers was priceless.

“Someone should have grabbed Probert, You’ll probably get punched out, but that’s the price you pay to win a hockey game”

These just serve to remind us of what we’ve lost. Many of the players we forget played with the team, or how young so many were.

Stefan gets run, the whole team is after the guy. Probie is a beast trying to get at him.

Yzerman fighting, and again Probert is on his way looking to protect the CPT. Probert could fight and play. It’s funny to see the space Probert gets on the ice. It’s a shame for all his demons and whatnot; he’s my all-time fav Red Wing.

Thanks for the reminder.

I was hoping G Smith down in GR might develope into the next scrappy player but he seems to be fizzleing.
