Quick Hits: 9/20

Filppula's Forecast- I've long said that Valtteri Filppula is "a little bit Datsyuk, a little bit Zetterberg - but not as good as either".  Filppula's numbers should drastically improve this year...but are they going to be as good as Babcock has said they could be?  Come on over and tell us what you think.

A Look at the D Pairing Swap from DSN- Rob from Red Wings Win, Eh? takes an in depth look at Mike Babcock's decision to split up the pairings of Nicklas Lidstrom and Brian Rafalski as well as Niklas Kronwall and Brad Stuart.  Will Kronwall/Lidstrom and Rafalski/Stuart work?

Draper Out Again- Chuck from Red Wings front reports that the groin tweak that Kris Draper suffered on Saturday is likely going to keep him off the ice for the rest of camp and probably the beginning of the pre-season games.  The 39 year old center is going to take his recovery nice and easy.

2010-2011 Player Profiles: Darren Helm- Kris from Snipe Snipe, Dangle Dangle takes a look at #43, Darren Helm.  His points from last year's regular season, his highlights and his lowlights.  You didn't actually think she was going to post this and NOT get a mention from me on Quick Hits...did you?
