I know I've never liked Franzen, but now its bordering on hate. He seems non existent. And god do I hope we make some kinda move for some scoring.

really hope Holland at least tries to get some more scoring, or at least some sandpaper before the deadline... everyone still looks lost w/o Pavs and we can't afford to slide with the Blues right behind us

I'm afraid this is the start of the dreaded slump. When you see breaks going for the other team, you just know what's going to happen.

Its a long season. They were bound to have a letdown eventually. Better now than the playoffs.


Definitely. Sucks without Datsyuk we have some guys playing on lines they shouldn't ever be on (Cleary)

Might as well trade Lidstrom, Datsyuk, Franzen and Zetterberg :P

Seriously, Canucks fan said don't be surprised to see our big guys gone by Monday, especially Lidstrom

Don't they always struggle this time of year? It seems like they always put up just enough effort to not be embarrassed on the scoreboard.

True, it is slump-time of the year. And after such a long winning streak at home a letdown was bound to happen.. kinda like a deflated balloon, it takes some time to get the energy back after the streak ends.

Still would like to see more from Franzen, Zetterberg, Filppula, Hudler etc.

yes it does seem that way, I'm thinking more about the playoffs though, we have too many players that are the 'jack of all trades, master of none' types, would like to get a solid scorer(I know not too likely esp. in a seller's market) but at least a grinder like Moen who has experience in the playoffs who will provide grit and maybe teach Abdelkader a thing or two, also don't like the idea of Emmerton being our 4th line center come mid-April

Please don't include Franzen in that group. I don't think a single person would be sad to see Franzen traded away.

Just cause you look like the gimp don't mean you play like the gimp!

How do you win 23 games in a row at home and still not be running away with the points? If this team had played like this all season, they wouldn't be in the playoffs. Looks like reality is setting in and the road Wings have shown up. Guarantee there will be more excitement tomorrow on the Joe ice...

It's becoming quite glaring that without Pav this team needs some help up front. We are pretty pedestrian without him. It's like a really s***ty domino effect without him out there. Franzen and Bert are lost and Z clearly has not chemistry with them. Cleary has to play on the 2nd line where its obvious he should be on the 3rd with Helm and Miller so Abby can go down and center what would be a pretty good 4th line with Homer and whatever other guy out of Mursak, Emmerton or whoever wants to join them.

They need to do something to light a fire under him. Maybe put him up on the trading block. None of these guys have a sense that their job is in danger.

Pathetic period. With that said, it should only be 1-0 because I do not know how the hell there was not a penalty called on the Avs before their 2nd goal... Quincy was CLEARLY tripped!

Regardless the Wings level of play was pathetic and unacceptable. For the love of God Babcock CHANGE THE FREAKIN LINES!! Franzen is useless and ever since Hank has been stuck with him he has went back to playing bad. Franzen can play on the 4th line for all I care right now. I want Fil and Hank together with Bert on the top line.

Hopefully the Wings can get going in the 2nd and hopefully the refs start doing their jobs.

Just switch Flip and Z to start and see where that goes.

What would be real nice is for Babcock to really lay into these guys.

I'm not worried and I know I keep posting all frustrated but I've really got nowhere else to let it all out :P

Ah well, they looked awful last year before the playoffs then completely turned it on in that game against the Blackhawks right before. We've learned this is a team that can flip a switch, they just don't do it often

Okay, I haven't watched the last two games and we lost both.

I'm watching tonight.

We'll win for sure.

Hey Z, hey Mule, hey Huds and Cleary and even you, Lids, there's this guy Pavel who is out and I'm expecting YOU to pick up his slack. Get'r done boys!


From your eyeballs to their hands and feets. It's an old Jewish saying.

"He even ate with women who at that time were accorded the same status as the family donkey. Are we willing to break bread with, say, child sex slaves, transgender teens and undocumented workers? Because when Jesus comes back to Earth, that's where he'll be hanging."
You can easily judge the character of a man by how he treats those who can do nothing for him.

Wings best bottom six was:

Holmstrom - Abby - Miller
