Between the Lines: Week Nine

Chris Wassel




The hottest line in the league heading into Week Nine.


This week saw Chicago come back to Earth offensively.  The other numbers started to come in and then the weekend numbers were even crazier. Now it is time to go "Between the Lines".


Lead Us Forwards


Andrew LaddBryan LittleBlake Wheeler (Winnipeg) – It seems like every few weeks, these guys crank one out and they had eleven points while on the ice together in Week 8. They usually combine for all their points as they are rarely separated. Bryan Little arguably had the best week of the three with four points but it was the chances he generated that sealed it. Winnipeg needs this line to produce as the Evander Kane line is still a little bit inconsistent.


Justin AbdelkaderJohan FranzenGustav NyquistHenrik Zetterberg (Detroit) – Oh those four man power play units are so fun when they are clicking. Wait, they played New Jersey last week? That explains their appearance on here. They had nine points combined when on the man advantage but Justin Abdelkader is day-to-day with another injury so maybe Tomas Tatar steps in this week? It might be a good idea to pick him up.
