Meech back at JLA

Defenseman Derek Meech is on the ice this morning for the Red Wings' skate, meaning that his conditioning stint in Grand Rapids is over. Class move by the organization to make sure that Meech would be back with the Red Wings right when the team leaves on the fathers trip so that he could share in that experience with his dad.
No Dallas Drake (swollen knee), as expected, so tonight's lines should be ...
Filppula-Datsyuk-Holmstrom
Franzen-Zetterberg-Samuelsson
Cleary-Drpaer-Maltby
Hudler-Kopecky-Downey
Lidstrom-Rafalski
Kronwall-Lilja
Lebda-Chelios
Hasek (starts)
Osgood
Ellis (healthy scratch)
Meech (healthy scratch)

If I was the coach I would put the lines as follows.....

Cleary-Datsyuk-Holmstrom
Filppula-Zetterberg-Samuelsson
Hudler-Franzen-Maltby/Draper
Maltby/Draper-Kopecky-Downey
Lidstrom-Rafalski
Kronwall-Lilja
Quincey/Lebda-Chelios/Lebda

Hasek (starts)
Osgood (backup)

Ellis (healthy scratch)
Meech - trade for a draft pick. To small to be a NHL D-man.
