Commodore’s finally healthy, but he’s run into a problem. Jakob Kindl’s played himself into the lineup. He’s taken advantage of his chances, and even considering the last two games, he’s been great. Not only that, but Ericsson, a.k.a. E-52, Big Rig, or S#!tbox, as The Production Line so lovingly calls him, has played well too. Essentially, there’s no room for Commie22 at the moment. Still, unlike last year, Commie’s kept a positive view on it all:
“I just want to have good practices and when the opportunity arises be ready to go,'' Commodore said. "Hopefully we keep playing well, and if it takes a while for that opportunity, then so be it. That's fine. I just need to focus on myself and be ready when the time comes around.''
I’m sure we’ll need him (crosses fingers) sooner rather than later, so that’s a great attitude to have. Anyways, per Khan(!), here’s the lineup tonight:
Emmerton-Brunnstrom (healthy scratches)
Commodore (healthy scratch)
Essentially, the standard, with Eaves and Abby changed around. I’d like to see some mix-up of the first two lines, to get Z and Clears going. Maybe throw Homer up there, or even add Brunnstrom into the mix. Still, this is probably our best front 12, against a very good Sharks team, we will have to see what we can do.And well, I will leave you with Commie22’s tweet of the day. Today he included includes a picture of a young Mr. Commodore at the University of North Dakota. He wants you to “check out those sick stats.”
I think we should check out that emo face of yours Mike. Lighten up man.

I wouldn't mind them going back to the original lines to start the season:
Hudler-Pav-Clears and Fil-Z-Mule.
However, with that being said, having Z-Pav-Clears go up against Marleau-Thornton-Havlat is a good match up. And I can only assume we'd have Bert-Helm-Eaves against Clowe-Couture-Pavelski leaving the Hudler-Fil-Mule line to avoid a match up and hopefully chip in some offence.
Poor guy can't catch a break, just hope he's serious about being ready... I want to hear about some Chelios style tv in the sauna type training, alright maybe not that intense... But what I do hope on reading tomorrow is a kick 'em while their down post tomorrow. GO WINGS!
