Wings Hit The Ice For Practice

Updates to this post as needed.

added 12:25pm, More from Khan...

Could Franzen be ready? He's skating in place of Cleary on a line with Helm and Alfredsson.

Fourth line still has Glendening with Miller and Eaves. Andersson and Cleary are alternating in.

added 12:35pm, Khan again say Datsyuk not participating in all the drills plus this...

Looks like players just alternating on top 2 lines: Nyquist, Abdelkader, Sheahan, Tatar, Jurco, Bertuzzi, Samuelsson and Datsyuk.

added 12:52pm, Khan one more time,

Franzen said he's felt good for three days in a row. Hopes to play tomorrow but will be a game time decision.

We wait for Datsyuk, via Khan,

Datsyuk said he’s not ready for tomorrow. Hoping to return sometime next week but nothing is definite.

Babcock said Franzen and Andersson might be ready for tomorrow. They’ll decide pregame who plays and who’s out.

Babcock also said Gustavsson in net, Howard not ready and Zetterberg just took the day off, will play tomorrow.

Franzen being back is very very good.  He always comes back with a vengeance.

I really like Glendening, he’s got some real sandpaper to his game.  I hope he sticks around after everyone gets healthy.  He reminds me of Andrew Shaw from Chicago, doushey, but not dirty like carcillo or lapierre.

Yay for Mule coming back!  I just hope we’re keeping the kids. The sammy news just posted looks promising for those ends.

Zetterberg played a helluva game…but like said above…all these “maintenance days” are scaring the hell out of me…
