Detroit’s Practice Update

St. James tweets,

Henrik Zetterberg & Daniel Alfredsson not practicing with #RedWings, but Ken Holland said he hasn't been told of injuries, so guessing rest

Pavel Datsyuk, Darren Helm & Johan Franzen all practicing for third straight day. Would think at least one plays Saturday.

Updates will continue as needed.

added 5:25pm, via Khan tweets,

Datsyuk is centering line with Tatar and Bertuzzi. Franzen centering Abdelkader and Samulelsson. Helm is not taking part in line rushes.

The other lines: Miller-Andersson-Nyquist, Cleary-Glendening-Eaves.

added 5:57pm, Beat writers update..

Babcock says Helm, Datsyuk and Franzen will not play tomorrow, Howard will start and Sheahan in for Samuelsson.

Also Zetterberg and Alfredsson had a maintenance day, both will play Saturday.

Sheahan in for Samuelsson.

You know you have no redeeming value as a hockey player when Babs sits you as a healthy scratch for a minor league call up.

Too bad Sammy is so illiterate at reading the tea leaves of office politics, otherwise he might do the Wings, himself and us fans a favor and retire.

A win by the Rangers or TO tonight and the Wings will still have the #2 wild card.  If both of those teams win, the Wings are out.

Dear Gord, I’m actually watching the race for the wild card spots.  Damn…

Yep, I am watching the playoff races too but continue to root for the East to beat the West team.

That has to stop now.

It’s stressing me out and it’s just the second week of the new year.

Holy hell, I forgot about the ‘Canes.  They play tonight, too.  They win as well and the Wings are out of a playoff spot.

Who would benefit from him retiring?  He’s on a 35+ contract, so if he retired the Wings would be on the hook for his salary.  Him retiring would be as helpful as if he were to be waived, which is not helpful at all.

TO loses.
CAR loses.
NYR wins.

So the Wings have the #2 wild card spot.

Yep, having a dead body in your living room means you have a friend.
