Lines At Today's Practice

Is Zadina still hurt in some capacity? Him and Suter being the extras is quite a statement. Hope he gets it going, bkz it sounds like it's not for lack of effort.




After Zadina was "hobbled" in practice the other day, they may have decided the extra night off would be for the best, then he and Pius can come out firing on Sat. Sucks for those guys not to be in the opening night lineup, tho.


Lalonde putting a $3.75mln Steve Yzerman UFA signing on the bench, interesting.


The Suter benching is...interesting.  Perhaps to get him a little more motivated.   When the coach said everyone had a clean slate,  he wasn't joking.

Soderblom working the PP makes it look like he'll be a lock these next couple weeks to see what he's got.  

The Maata/Hronek pairing will be fun if nothing else.  That could be a dumpster fire on ice or just a lot of fun to watch.


I doubt Suter needs motivation, I am sure he does his best on every shift. I do think he is our 5th best center, but still not playing him and not sending Veleno down (because they could) is refreshing 


I think Rasmussen showing the new coach that he's the 3rd line center, not Suter, and Veleno going out and hitting everyone he was close to in the pre-season which is what you want out of a plus 4th line center, put Suter on the bench.
