Somewhere in East Berlin Gary Bettman is sipping champagne, gloating over Franzen's 10 year contract and plotting his next attack on the Red Wings
Q: Of all the individual trophies you have not won, which one would you most like to win?
Datsyuk: I have so many of them that I haven't won. I think I would most like to win a trophy to the best goaltending duo.

When the hell did this happen exactly? I just re-watched last nights game, and Franzen is skating all the way to the end. Even after the game when all the players went over to congratulate ozzie, Mule was one of them, skating like normal. Doesnt an ACL tear basically mean you can't walk at all? Did it happen at a morning practice or what? I want answers!

It might be a very small tear but it's still a tear and they take loooong time to heal

It's a blow, but not the end of the world. There is still enough talent for three scoring lines.

Filppula-Datsyuk-Holmstrom
Leino-Zetterberg-Cleary
Bertuzzi-Williams -Abdelkader
Draper-Helm-Maltby/Eaves/May

Get well Mule!

No biggie if he can really be back to form in 4 months. This team is a playoff team with or without Franzen. I don't think we're a Cup contender without him, so I'm really hoping this ACL deal works itself out by March-ish.

I'd be fine with Shanny - in fact I'd love to see Shanahan on the 3rd line until Fran comes back.
"It was pretty interesting," said Detroit coach Mike Babcock. "We had May in exhibition for a couple of games and no one gets hacked or whacked. When we don't have him, we get run. We don't have a team that twists off helmets at stoppages. You get tired of seeing it all the time. It's just nice when you get someone to look after that stuff."

Horrible news.

The biggest knock on Franzen is his health, since there always seems to be something wrong with him. The guy is made of glass. It'll be tough winning the division even with him healthy, but now this makes matters worse.

Only 3 games into the season, and we're picking up right where we left off in the playoffs with injuries.

In all seriousness I'm rather bummed out since the Mule is one of the few forwards that'll make his way to the net on a consistent basis...Wonder if he'll get the patellar graft, or go for the "donor" tissue graft...Either way it'll be longer than 4 months if he needs the surgery; probably be ready (if we're lucky) by the 1st round of the playoffs.

If he were CANADIAN POWER FORWARD this would never happened. A TRUE NORTH AMERICAN ENFORCER would prevent this from happening too.

Those lines are terrible and make me want to kill myself.

Thank God your last name isn't Babcock.

This man might help us if Holland convinces him to un-retire.


I don't see why not. He'd probably pay Holland to play for a cup contender for once. Especially a cup contender filled with other SWEEEEDDEEESSSS.

Thats not good.


Torn ACL....it will take longer than 4 months for him to get back to 100%. He may not ever be the same.

Def takes more than 4 months if surgery is required; unless there's additional damage to the knee joint (meniscus tear) there hopefully won't be any serious issues, and the knee can be "almost" as good as it was prior to the injury.

I don't know much about the human body, but it sounds to me like it must've been the smallest of tears, and the staff thought it should be taken cared off asap before it tears worse. He probably felt the aggravation from it and played through it the rest of the game like any other player would.

What a disaster... Sports could not be more stupid and frustrating if they tried.
