You must not have been watching franzen playing this year...

 

Of course I have, Mule is one of my favorite players to watch even when his performance has been sub par. Because when he brings it, he brings it. I'm just saying that he has his negative moments as much as anyone else, and he can't point his finger at anyone else without pointing at himself as well.

He is

Oh this young man has had a very trying rookie season, with the litigation, the notoriety, his subsequent deportation to Canada and that country's refusal to accept him, well, I guess that's more than most 21-year-olds can handle... Ogie Ogilthorpe!

Franzen calling out the team? Even when he is one of the guys who show up for a week or so then disappear for a month....trade him in June...He has been doing well so his value is high.

I don't need to read the quote. Lets fuc$&@g go . No need to understate things here you walk out of that room you see the crowd and lights. Push it more than you have so far

 

F****** right. Push it harder than you ever have before.

 

I have no problem with us losing and missing the playoffs if every man on the team is giving his all at all times. Then it's just a matter of us simply not being talented enough and every other team being healthy and pushing, and that's not this current lineup's fault.

 

But I really do feel like if there's maximum effort along with real heart and trust and all that good stuff, we've got a good chance. Anything less than that, though? Start booking tee times.

if one thing has been made clear with these injuries, it's that tatar/nyquist are not players in the mold of datsyuk/zetterberg - they aren't the guys that are going to carry your team.  they're secondary players.

Are you trolling, or being sarcastic? It's so weird to me how literally every post you make is negative. They're rookies, and killing it.

Maybe I'm missing something, but to me it doesn't sound like a call out. It sounds like a regular interview, in the same style we've been hearing for months.

To me what Kronwall said was much more of a call out, but it's not like either guy used any strong language or tore into anyone.

I don't know maybe it's just me, but I don't see anything inflammatory in anything either guy said.

Ya you can tell on the power play their confidence is gone. Losing everyone and not expecting them back is probably daunting on them and they understand they have little chance

This team makes us all laugh...stop bitching about it if you aren't willing to make it better by getting better players in here.  Oh wait, you want to trade Kindl for Stamkos, I get it.

I don't see it either. All he did was go into more detail knstead of the typical "we lost we need to be better." I see no reason to read anything into this at all. They all look disengaged and unmotivated and scared. He's simply stating what we could all see. Only difference is he plays so woah huge deal.

Kindl and a 3rd just to be fair.

 

In all seriousness, to say that the team's confidence is damaged would be an understatement. We play 30 minutes of good hockey then it's "meh". We need to string together a decent winning streak now more than ever, especially if we hope to get back in the playoff race. They don't have to be pretty wins, one goal games would suit me fine.

The big deal is that he went into more detail.  That's the state of modern sports. Everybody is as generic as possible, so when someone actually admits to something that we all can see, it's a "big deal."

 

Though no one is saying it's a "big deal" really.  Not like he insulted anyone.  It's just a refreshing sign to have someone give us something other than the most generic, bland statement possible.

The statement might be stronger then usual, but I don't see it as being all that much enlightening.

Hasn't Babs been saying the same thing, for what seems like months now?

This is just how Franzen is. He thought there wasn't enough joy, and he said so. Now he feels there isn't enough trust and buy-in, and so he's saying so. He's not above criticism, but I really don't feel like he's one of our bigger issues. He's been great for us. But he and a clearly hurting Alfredsson are our only big guns, and they can only do so much. The team as a whole has to rise to the challenge. The team has to become a real team.

Franzen's right,but there were times when the team desperately needed him to step up but he didn't "have fun" to do so.

Lets set some things straight.

1. Franzen has not played great all year. He has played like crap fro most of the year. In October he played 12 games and scored 2 goals, both in the same game. In November he played in 10 games-missed 4 while hurt and scored 4 goals. In december he played in 8 games, missed 6 while hurt and scored 3 goals. In january he played 1 game, missed 12 and scored 0 goals. In February he played in 2 games, missed 4 others and scored 3 goals-all in the same game. March he has played in 7 games, missed none and has 3 goals. But again nothing the last 4.

2. Leaders lead, not push. If you want to lead Johan, put the puck in the net! That is how leaders do it.

3. Leaders also don't disappear. I understand that no one scores in every game. But goals scorers do it more than once a month. Your even worse, because when you don't score you stop skating, checking, playing D etc.....

If anyone on the team is in a position to say this, it's Franzen.  He has been our best player over the injury streak.
