I’m completely prepared that he’s not going to play tonight.  So out of all those lines, I will be watching Glendening the most.  He’s really got to step up against Los Tibbys.

That second line is what I thought the fourth line might be like before the season started.

A tweet from Khan…

Datsyuk, Helm and Franzen all said they’re making progress and are day-to-day, possible for Saturday. Each skated a while after practice.

DeKeyser in for Marchenko

What does it take to get Quincey out of this lineup?  The guy is terrible, hes a minus infinity, he might have damaged Smith’s career beyond repair, and there are several young and able bodied dmen waiting in the wings, one of who is on the trip with you and was a +2 in your last game.
