I can't believe I actually held off until today to open this thread up...

The eldest players for each team will be out tonight as Chris Chelios and Gary Roberts each sit. Chelios calls himself a healthy scratch after missing Game Six of the Dallas series with a knee injury, while Roberts is recovering from pneumonia.

Johan Franzen ruled himself out for Game One, though he has begun practicing with the Red Wings after missing the final five games of the Western Conference Finals.

The Red Wings will go with the same lineup as they used to finish off the Stars, meaning much-malaigned defenseman Andreas Lilja is in the lineup.

As usual, no predictions from me. I feel good but cautious.

I'm surprised that Cheli is out for game one, considering how much he has been talking to the media.

I can't wait to see how Nick is going to handle Crosby and Malkin. That matchup alone will be one of the biggest highlights of the series.

Looking forward to dropping the puck!

Fluery fell on the way on the ice before the game. Good sign.

Wings looked good on the first half of their one real power play. Maybe that'll carry over a bit.

One blown call and 4 penalties to 2 I think the NHL already has Sid's name etched in the cup. Wings have to play Pens & refs. They have had their chances would love to see them bury the first one (again).

I'm worried that if the Wings don't score on this power play, it'll come back to bite them in the ass.
