Scratching Homer for the games in Nashville, for me, has to be the way forward. He’s a major liability 5-5. Connor would be a much better fit.

Helm and Cleary on the same line?

Might as well swap out miller for eaves to complete the wounded trifecta.

According to Mike Babcock, Conner, Mursak and Sheahan are healthy scratches up front. No decision on Nyquist/Emmerton.

I agree. I don’t see the upside of having Mr. Invisible in over Gus.

Depends. Much as I love Nyquist, he’s pretty useless as a 4th liner. Emmerton, even with his screwups is the better option if that player is going to be stuck on the bottom line for all of 6 minutes of ice time. But in that case my argument would be Conner should be in there instead.

I’d actually put Emmerton below Nyquist and Connor. There’s a LOT less chance getting a goal out of Emmerton than those other two cats. Even at 6 min. a game.
Man, I’ve turned into an big Emmerton disliker (hater is too strong a term for someone who is a huge Meh…).

Why not swap Nyquist and Cleary.  If Helm is good to go, let him and Nyquist skate circles out there.

The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
