With an abbreviated 2012-13 season, the time may be now for the Detroit Red Wings to have a bit of a "youth movement."
With players such as Damien Brunner, Gustav Nyquist and Brendan Smith ready to take on larger roles, there are sure to be some changes to the nightly lineups that fans in Hockeytown are accustomed to.
Mike Babcock has never been shy about shuffling his lines around, so none of my proposed lines would likely stick.
I realize that my lines have a few veterans taking a back seat to some newcomers, but I can't help but feel like these moves would benefit the Red Wings in the long run. Without further delay, I present to you my opening-night lines for Detroit.
