I have to believe Franzen will sit Tuesday..Miller and Mike both in the lineup? Time will tell but it wouldn't shock me.

I get that coaches can sometimes be stubborn in general, in any sport. You also got to wonder if Modano annoucing early that Modano was probably done after this season has anything with him to do not cracking the lineup over a few other reserves as well where he has more offensive potential. I'm not dogging Modano for coming out saying what he said, I don't think it was a pity party or cry for attention or being overly dramatic or whatever, just basically that he was probably going to hang them up after this season, nothing more or less.

If Franzen's ankle is as bad as it was as game 4 went on (and assuming Miller gets the nod over Hudler again), would stubborness or Modano's "talk" prevent him from getting in again.....

Nah, Babcock couldn't care less if or where a role player is going to play next year... He wants to win every night, and will put out the lineup that he feels will get that win on that day.

I want to believe that, but did you see the pain Mule was in all game? I can't help but wonder. At 100%, sure, Franzen is better than Modano. On one leg, though?

The other issue is that if Franzen can't go does Babcock think Modano is the better option than Hudler. Maybe, maybe not

If he doesn't, then it's official imo. Mike Babcock hates Mike Modano. :ph34r:

I heard Mike Babcock hates American players. Sorry Modano, looks like you don't get to suit up.

yet, Drew Miller gets in....and Howard is still starting...as is Abdelkader and Rafalski...but I heard the same thing, maybe it was just Chelios he hated...

PLEASE let Mikey play, Babs. The last time I said this I felt kind of bad because we weren't sure how injured Mule was, but now I just say it out of mercy. Give the guy a break! I know he doesn't really want one, but it's pretty obvious now that he needs one.

According to Babs it won't be Hudler:

The Wings may play Game 6 without forward Johan Franzen, who reinjured his ankle during Sunday’s game and didn’t play at all in the third period. The Wings expect to have a better handle on Franzen’s health Tuesday morning. Mike Modano is on standby if Franzen can’t play.
“I'm not going to worry about that much,” Babcock said. “We'll see what happens. If he's not ready to go, we'll put Modano in.”

Modano will play if Mule can't.

Hope he plays, he'll be motivated and he's a Shark killer. Mule will be better served for if we can get to Game 7 or beyond.

Hudler's efforts have contributed 0 points to this series, he's setup no goals for a grand total of 0 assists. Modano is a better skater, has more experience, and his shot and ability to the play the point could help wake up the Wings incredibly sad powerplay efforts.

When I think of "lost race" and "lazy," I'm looking right at Hudler, not Modano.

I agree. Huds adds nothing against the Sharks - he gets tossed around like a ragdoll. The cliche 'defensive liability' applies in his case. Modano has done little true, but I would put him back in over Huds. Jiri Hudler is this year's Jason Williams.
New season, New start! May the force be with the Wings this time!
