i was kinda hoping that ericsson standing up for him and fighting ott would spark him a little.


franzen obviously has a binge-scoring problem. he needs an intervention, him.

This uninspired play at home needs to stop. I thought they vowed to play better in front of the home fans.

Franzen 11 games without a goal.

And with Franzen, if he's not scoring, he's virtually useless.

So what does it mean when people say, "Hard work will always beat skill when skill doesn't work hard."?

I'm partial to the Fischer/Hartnell fight, myself.

Shorter, but sweeter.

What about Downy/Lappy fight after the Lidstrom hit?

...and to think, after his 5 goal game, some folks were comparing him to Fedorov...

Franzen is just not used to playing a full season.

Apparently, he can't play for a long stretch of time at a good level. He's used to a hot streak, a long injury, followed by another hot streak.

He's coasting way too often out there. Maybe he's afraid of another concussion so he stays away from the scoring areas.

Yeah, you said that already.

just in case you missed it, Franzen is no Fedorov. Actually he blows, but he sure is worth the contract he signed! He scores in bunches and is FAR from consistent. Anything else that needs to be repeated?

This team needs a shake up, and I certainly hope Holland actually does something this monday and shows the fans that he cares about them.

I think the team is bored. Which is bad, because I want them to have some type of momentum heading into the playoffs. Some games we look like a cup contending team, other games, 1st or 2nd round exit. Would the real red wings please show up soon?
Playoff Time. Let's Go Red Wings!!!!

Pile on those 30 min skates, wear the guys out. I dont care if they lose a few games because they are worn out, they need to get work ethic back. What Babs did was obviously a short term fix. Trade somebody, shock the team. Shake it up. The Wings lazyness has reached a whole new level this season, they are either on or they aren't.

Hopefully late March will get them going. Pens, Caps, Canucks, Hawks...all at home.

Didn't Fedorov only score about 26 goals that season?

I only watched the first period and the last 3 minutes of the third but from what I saw they were just out worked. Z's line in the first had one good shift other than that they were in their own zone.

I'm pretty he's been showing us that for 15 years, deadline deals or not.

This is why you don't hand out 11 year contracts. Especially after you drafted that player when he was 24, had never consistantly scored at any level pre-nhl, and had only shown play worth his cap hit for a little over a season. I cringed when his contract was signed and I still don't like it. If Franzen is prone to be lazy, then its even worse. This guy KNOWS he has a job for the next 10 years, pretty much whether or not he lives up to the contract.

0 goals in his last 11, 5 goals in his last 12 :yowza:

Oh god, here we go again. On Monday I'm quite Holland will do exactly what you're doing and panic and make a bunch of stupid trades to satisfy your need to panic about a team that is 2nd in the west, fighting through injuries and hasn't missed the playoffs in 2 decades. <_<

LGW after 1 loss is irrational, after a few in a row it becomes quite comical, 22 playoff appearances in a row and 4 cups in that time and still going strong. Relaxxxxx !!

Still disappoint. Dallas took 3 of 4 meetings this season.
