I hate myself for even considering this, because I know Franzen will be clutch again in the playoffs...but I kind of wonder what a Franzen/Hudler or Franzen/Filppula trade would get us.

I have not seen the game, but I am sure Howi did a marvelous job again. One goal on 5 shots in first period, goal on 5 shots in second. Such a performance should definitely help the team to gain some confidence, especially come playoff time... Kiprusoff was just a little bit better, but everybody got used to this. We need to trade all forwards and keep Howi. He is the only bright spot... Not to mention that you cannot expect a shutout from a goaltender every game! He should feel great about himself. I hope we will never get a goalie better than what we have... I wish we would get a stud defenseman who would block all shots, and a couple of forwards who would never attack but stay in defense to make sure Howi will not need to save the team from a breakaway… Cheers!

True, but I always believed Hossa was the right choice long-term for the Red Wings. The bitterness of the 2009 playoffs doesn't change he's a far better player than Franzen.



Franzen had three more goals last year than Hossa and two less points. Hossa has a tendency to be invisible, too.

Franzen played 11 more games too. Franzen doesn't have invisible stretches? He's practically useless when he isn't scoring in major bunches.

we don't even want Franzen so I doubt some other team will.


YOU don't want Franzen.

Hossa scored his 6th goal tonight. That looks like a poorer decision more every day.


Whiiiine.

As always, you add so much to any discussion.

And yes, I'm the one person here that is frustrated with Franzen.

If only Franzen had Patrick Kane feeding him no-look passes to open nets. Then he could have a whopping two more goals too.

That's fine. It doesn't change Franzen not having a shot on goal tonight or a goal in six games.

And? Him and the rest of Detroit's offense are having trouble scoring goals.

The funny thing is he hasn't scored a goal in six but has been leading the team in scoring pretty much all season regardless. What does that say about our top players?

Can we trade Crymson and a bag of pucks to get mindfly back? He at least talked hockey most of the time, even it was all negative.

I don't want mindfly back here. He's someone else's headache now. Let him stay that way.

yeah. I was still ticked about the loss and had had a few drinks. :P


getting mindfly back is a horrible idea. he's definitely not making friends over at hfboards...

You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

In Internet slang, a troll is someone who posts inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community, such as an online discussion forum, chat room, or blog, with the primary intent of provoking readers into an emotional response or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion.[4]

Seems spot on to me. But now we should probably get back on topic...

Franzen has looked terrible out there as of late but so has just about everyone except maybe Helm and Lidstrom. So at this point I am not even most frustrated with Mule. That would probably go to Bert and Hank. For obvious reasons. I agree, a players only meeting could be in order. Show some pride.

Or better yet, have a player only meeting, and make Franzen sit outside the door.
