I'm usually not as frustrated with bad plays, or mistakes, because at least they are playing /trying. That's just me i guess. Franzen just standing around, not moving his feet, swinging his stick one-handed at pucks makes me nuts though, at least look like you are trying.

 

I hear ya. Franzen looked terrible last night as well. 

 

If Tatar somehow wins out on the first line lottery, I would be pretty happy.

So it's looking like...

 

Zetterberg  Datsyuk  Bertuzzi

Franzen  Weiss  Abdelkader

Cleary  Andersson  Alfredsson

Miller  Glendening  Tootoo

 

...right?

Andersson.

Or did you mean "You mean Cory"? meh. Words are annoying.


Well maybe if the two of you communicated with grunts and hand signals like real men we wouldn't be having this problem.

:lol:

why cant babs ever just give a guy a legit chance for a few games put tatar on the 2nd or 3rd line or even with Z or dats and see what the kid can do. i bet you put him on a line with Z and franzen he would out performs weiss cleary bert sams abs alfie probably even franzen or he may even help him

I think at this point we may never see the Helm that we all miss and need.

We all no no way Tatar beats out Bert on the first line... Sigh... This is really startif to piss me off... Drop emmerton to add tootoo for speed... Move Bert to first line to slow then down...

I'm praying that that Abby can get Weiss going forecheck wise and that cleary (sigh) and Andy can get Alfie the puck and keep him fresh for PP

To you sir, a riddle:

 

Well Cory is Cory, but Andy can never catch a break.

I know right... if only Andy could catch a break...

I think I'm in the minority, but I thought Alfredson has looked much worse than Franzen.  I wouldn't be shocked if Alfredson has the most giveaway's on our team, and a lot of those giveaways are stupid pass attempts.  He needs to tighten up his game and put some more thought into what he does with the puck.  Franzen hasn't been playing hard down low, but at least he hasn't been the defensive liability that Alfredson has been.

Despite the stats, I've liked how Weiss has played.  I'd like to see him get some ice time with either Datsyuk or Zetterberg.

At least we'll finally have something of an energy line in Miller-Glendening-Tootoo, too bad the rest of the roster is a bit of a cluster f***. I do like Bert on the top line though, and Franzen should probably be moved down to the 3rd line but hey I bet they'll be a ton of line juggling going on this season.

Every other year I've heard complaints about the amount of line juggling, and babs finally seemed to get that.
Unfortunately he had the worst.possible third and fourth lines.
I'm expecting a huge amount of line juggling from now on, from what I've read, babs was pissed about last game.
And rightfully so.
