Franzen taken to hospital after a cross check to the head.
Hope he is well.

He'll most likely be back in the tournament soon. Here's another article from MLive.

sounded like a crazy game. crosscheck to the face? getting speared?

Franzen was clearly making some new Russian friends.

Here's a clip of the spear.



Some huge dives by the Russians that got Franzen riled.



I pray the NHL never turns into this much of a joke in terms of diving. It's creeping that way already.

Nice to see Franzen's Corpse playing with some emotion, as if it's alive again...

The Mule played with real passion yesterday and he also shelved a nice one. Hoping for a speedy recovery!

Maybe he'll get his work ethic knocked back into him.

I think it's funny how when people dive around franzen, he goes into pummel mode. He did that a few times this year too.

In the video of Franzen getting hit in the face they flash to the Russian bench and you see Datsyuk yell something. I wonder if he was mad that his Russian teammates just cross checked his NHL teammate in the face, or that he was upset that that drew a penalty. :rolleyes:

Franzen's work ethic was never questioned while playing for Sweden. That is always the knock on European players, they play harder when it comes to International Play than in the NHL. It's always been said that the Europeans value International Championships higher than the Stanley Cup. When young Europeans are playing hockey, they dream of winning an Olympic gold, when young North American's are playing they dream of hoisting the Stanley Cup...that just the way it has always been. So of course Franzen is going to play harder and with more heart for Sweden...it's just how it goes...

He must have gotten bored...
Think for yourself. Question authority. Throughout human history as our species has faced the frightening, terrorizing fact that we do not know who we are or where we are going in this ocean of chance, it has been the authorities, the political, the religious, the educational authorities who attempted to comfort us by giving us order, rules, regulations, informing, forming in our minds their view of reality. To think for yourself you must question authority and learn how to put yourself in a state of vulnerable, open mindedness, chaotic, confused vulnerability to inform yourself.

Typical Franzen. Notice the cross check he performs before the love tap (spear). I don't feel sorry for him as he brings it on himself. Players don't respect guys who start sh.. and won't back it up or feign injury. Then one wonders why he gets his nose crumbled like a cheap cookie? Good for Kalinin. Franzen is a joke.

Is that PP designed for Mule to just stand there? Also before he got his face smashed, dude didn't look like he was skating hard. All the other Swedes were skating and moving their legs... then you see Mule steadily make his way towards the crease.

Cross check to the face then a spear to the nuts. And some people are condoning those actions? SMH.

Love tap?

There are spears that are really just a poke at a guy, but in the video you can clearly see a pretty hefty windup and jab. That's no love tap.

The crosscheck was more of just a scramble in the crease. The guy wasn't even looking at Franzen when he got him in the nose, so it's a stretch to imply it was somehow retaliation for Franzen not answering the bell or diving. And feigning injury was the rule in this game, not the exception.
