We did this last year and it was a success. Probably do 8 or so this year. One a week, every week, until the regular season. We'll try and mix up the players.

Last Year's Edition
1: Jiri Hudler
2: Ian White
3: Valtteri Filppula
4: Jimmy Howard
5: Johan Franzen

Week 1 will be Gustav Nyquist. He should be starting the season out with the Red Wings.

18 regular season games last season; 1G 6A, 7P
4 playoff games; 0P

Could be getting time with Pavel Datsyuk this season as they seemed to have chemistry.


I'm thinking Mikael Samuelsson, Niklas Kronwall, Kyle Quincey, Dan Cleary, Henrik Zetterberg, Patrick Eaves and Jordin Tootoo for the other 7 weeks.
