Who Should the Wings Sit?

Posted 10:24 AM ET | Comments 1
Congratulations to the Red Wings beating the Flames 4-1 last night. However, the Flames did not come to play last night and we should be expecting a lot more from them come Sunday and when they are at home. Anyways, with it looking like Bertuzzi is going to be in the lineup Sunday (well hopefully), who is going to sit for the Red Wings? Most look to rookies Jiri Hudler and Valterri Filpulla, however both played good last night, with Filpulla scoring the first goal and Hudler picking up an assist on the second goal. Also, both "Flip" and "Huds" were fairly physical last night. I don't want to see either one of them sit. Ideally, it would be Robert Lang who would sit, seeing as how he just has not be beneficial to the team by any stretch of the imagination. However, Babs won't put Zetterberg at center yet. This leaves me thinking that excluding Lang, it should be one of these three that should sit: Samuelsson, Cleary, and Maltby. Samuelsson won't because he's been playing point on the powerplay (though not doing that great of a job at it). It's also doubtful that 20-goal scorer Cleary will sit and ditto for playoff veteran Maltby. If it was my decision I'd probably sit Samuelsson first. Then probably Cleary. Who would you guys sit?

i would sit datshuk and zetterberg and holmstrom. I don't think detroit needs them to win this series and hopefully keep them rested for the next one
