Wings and Hawks for the first time this season. Chicago has torched the standings in the first week while Detroit... well Detroit has kind of stumbled. But hey! We're coming off a win against the Wild!

Detroit's going to need to play pretty well. Neutralizing the top lines will be a challenge for the defensive corps, but no problem now that Jonathan Ericsson is back in the lineup. Be honest, are you actually reading these? I feel like I could call Jonathan Ericsson the lynchpin of the defense and nobody will call me out for it.

It's a live thread. Anything goes unless it doesn't.

Let's go Red Wings!
