Franzen's knack for playoff scoring must continue - unleash him on every powerplay chance. Still bummed about the Cleary injury. Bring Draper out of retirement? Or for that matter, isn't Chelios still in great shape?

If were relying on Franzen to break out I think our hopes of winning this series is pretty much down to nothing. I have absolutely zero faith in Franzen and what he brings to this team. What we really need is Jimmy Howard to steal us a game like Rinne just did. Howards save % is sub. 900

Well the Mule has to unleash himself a little bit.

If Mule had half of Helm's heart and 1 of his balls he'd become a true Power Forward!

He only plays with effort when he gets bashed in the face with a stick.

I miss Helmer. As for Mule he'd better burry a few that,s all I'm saying.

LOL.... Maybe benching the Mule in favour of the RAM truck from the commercials would spark his play?

He really didnt have much effort in that game either. Well other then trying to get revenge and getting a stupid penalty. The only thing he did good after getting the stick in the face is have his ass in the right spot while he was looking the other way to deflect something in. His floating actually paid off for once.

Wow, I am loving this "love" for the Mule...I would have hated to see what would have happened if I started a thread like this. I maintain that if Mule decides to play this way the next two games, he is trade fodder at the draft. At this point I don't even think he could get us Morrow...have to throw in Emmerton...

You know, I would almost be okay with that trade if Mule keeps playing like he is.

So, we're dogpiling on the goalie sammy Hudler the defense the refs league bias against us coaching now? Ok.

This is what i find frustrating about him. There are guys on the team that can put in twice the effort as he does, and only have as much talent at they have been blessed with.
Guys like Helm, Eaves, or Connor that put in so much effort, but will always be supporting bottom line guys. Its a shame.

the Franzen from the playoffs in 07-10 (59 points in 51 games including 31 goals) is needed if Detroit is going to win this series.........he can't just go around the ice attempting to injure the opponents, but needs to focus on scoring goals. He has the talent.

Mule has always succeeded on hard work. Once he remembers that, he'll be fine.

Money on the board:  Current total: $6

$1 for a goal by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster.  An additional $5 for a series-clinching goal scored by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster. $5 if the other team fails to score against a current Wing goalie after whom I have named a hamster.

Hamsters I have had:  (current Wings highlighted)

Henrik Pavel Tomas Nicklas Dominik

Niklas Matthew Daniel Robert

Johan Andreas Valtteri Jonathan

Andrew Patrick Ian Todd

Jordin Damien Gustav James
