lol, nicknames weren't my point, the point was Weiss on the wing and how it would look in the lineup, but just because I made up some nicknames (which I have been using from time to time anyway) that seems to be the only thing folks focused on. Which is fine. No more nick names from me.
And the Johan Franzen argument is not even worth brining up. Gustav Nyquist is far better than he is and deserves to be in the top 6 over him. Tomas Tatar and Riley Sheahan both are playing better than him as well. And BTW will be far better in the league than Johan Franzen can hope to be. Pavel Datsyuk and Henrik Zetterberg of course ARE your top line. I am tired of giving Johan Franzen a pass because of what he did over 6 years ago and has yet to do it again. He is washed up, broke down and still only shows up for 2 months total of the entire season. He has become toxic waste since he signed his serious contract and doesn't deserve to be in the Red Wings sweater. That is my opinion and nothing is going to change it. I have given him plenty of opportunities to change my mind, yet he still floats around and is invisible most of the season, and when we need "playoff Johan Franzen" to make an appearance he doesn't. He just isn't as good as most of you are trying to convince yourself that he is. And while we are on that, neither is James Howard. Every time he needs to make that big save in the big game, he lets us ALL down, and he makes me say ugh. You guys can hang on to these two as long as you want, I am not fooled by them and am also allowed to form my own opinion on them. If I want to not like them, I can, that's a wonderful thing. Problem is, some folks get mad and start attacking another user just because they have an opinion they don't agree with. IMO, the Wings will never win a Cup with James Howard starting. He has shown nothing to prove me wrong, he just isn't that good. Sure glad this thread turned into something other than Weiss, all because someone didn't like that I nick-named three people the in a bad way...
Johan Franzen = Washed up
James Howard = Average Goalie
Darren Helm = Barbie Doll
This team can get players that far outperform these guys...and probably spend less money on them, with the exception of the goalie position, but James Howard isn't even worth what he is getting paid.
