Franzen and Kindl. Is there really a debate about this?

I rarely actively dislike any of our guys. It takes a lot to make me really not like someone. But of guys we have now that are actually playing, the guy who irritates me the most, who I think I'd love to see shipped out at this point, it's not surprisingly Mr. Franzen. I'd give him a lot more benefit of the doubt if he didn't say so many stupid things to top off his lazy, colossally inconsistent play. He could be so much better than he is, but he just doesn't seem to be able to consistently put forth the work ethic. That he is largely the reason Holland passed on Hossa does him no favors either...

Mikael Samuelsson, Jason Williams, and now Johan Franzen. 

 

Franzen has 8 points and 1 goal in the last 21 games. This is including the crunch-time regular season stretch where we needed our team firing on all cylinders to make it into the playoffs and then the playoffs themselves. This man is a fraud. I'm sorry, but that doesn't cut it for the 3rd highest paid (albeit healthy) forward on the team who happens to also be signed for the next 6 years.

 

I'm glad that I, like many others here, will have the opportunity to stay frustrated at our least favorite Red Wing (barring some miracle that he's bought out or traded) for more than the next half a decade. Cheers.

Franzen. Hate him, have since day one. My buddies ragged on me in 2008 when I kept saying he wasn't that good, now they agree with me. Man I wish we signed Hossa instead. At this point I just want Franzen gone, don't care just get rid of him.

I don't blame any of the players as much as I blame Holland and Babcock.

 

Responsibility should start at the top and it's the main reason why our defense sucks, or we don't have enough grit, scoring wingers, etc.  Those two have been carrying a mediocre squad around for a few years now.  


According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

The thing I'll say about Mule, is he may still not be right after the concussion, that may be tough for some folks to swallow, but he may still be recovering.

People should think about why Babcock, when asked about Franzen's performance, brought up Datsyuk's injury.

I don't generally "dislike" any Red Wings players, just get frustrated with some at different points.

 

At this juncture, I have to say my biggest frustration comes from Kindl.

 

His re-signing last summer was a panic move gambling on the hope that he continued to play like he did for a chunk of a shortened season. Last summer was the last time he was eligible for RFA status, and he should've been given a one year deal to show that he could keep playing like last season. That way, they could've discussed a long term lockup if he stayed in the top 4, or let him walk as a UFA if he back tracked (like he's done this season).

 

Now, he's back at being a #6/7 guy, while Quincey has seemed to finally carve out a spot as a #4/5 guy. If the tides were turned and Kindl was a UFA this summer, they could retain Quincey and add a good RH PP QB, or also let Quincey walk and get a solid defensive Dman as well. Instead the Red Wings really have one opening to improve on the blueline and will still have Kindl and Smith as question marks and the #4 spot potentially remaining a revolving door.

 

Kindl's contract probably also makes him hard to move, or get a decent return for. What would you give up for Dman under contract for 3 more years with a $2.4 cap hit that lost his job to Brian Lashoff when everyone was healthy?

Your right about that, he does have a history of head problems. Look at 2008. I just don't think the Wings should invest any more time in him. Trade him, buy him out, whatever just wash your hands of him.

He's had a concussion since 2010?  I mean, I WANT to defend Franzen and I have on numerous occasions.  But at some point, enough excuses. Sure, everyone goes through hot and cold stretches.  But not to the extreme that he does.  There have been far too many stretches like this for it to be blamed on injuries.  If he is hurt, sit him out.  He's of no benefit to the team whatsoever.

Glendening.  I'm sure he's a great kid, but he produces zero offense.  I don't understand the love affair Babs has with him, for a team that is offense starved the last few years, why bring on a guy that produces nothing?  He's in the top 5 of least producing Wing forwards we've EVER had, I think top 3 actually.  So what if he brings his lunch pail to work every day... he just doesn't produce anything while at work.  Most companies fire you for that.

 

Hes on this team because every line has a role. Glendenning fits the shutdown center role EXTREMELY well

 

Dats is now able to play against other team's 2,3,4 line because glendenning is somehow capable of shutting down other teams top centers. 

 

Not every player needs to provide offence, especially a 4th liner

 

 

As per the thread:

 

I despise Quincey Kindl Bertuzzi and right now Franzen

Pavel datsyuk is the best player in the world because he snatches the puck from unsuspecting players and  follows it up by the simultaneous undressing of the defence pairing.  The end result is a calm skate back to his bench  where he can bask in the praise of his multiple girlfriends from the motherland.

mule - lazy, super talented but just too dang lazy.

kindl - easily our worst defender. craps his pants every time he touches the puck. soft. gets scored on a lot. oullett, march, and sproul could step in right now and be better than him.

miller - easily replaceable. terrible at offense, its just time for him to go.

holland - gets boned on trades, doesnt do a whole lot right these days.

This.

His job is to be a shut-down center. But since the complaint is that he doesn't score... well he's currently tied for the team lead in goals in these playoffs :)

The "speedy" Matthieu Danenault. Never liked him and after hearing him bash playoff beards as being something lame from the 80's, I liked him even less.

 

Bernie Federko and Tony McKegney. Wasn't their fault the Wings traded Oates for them, but still ...

I dislike Franzen, Samuelsson, Kindl, Lashoff, and Andersson. Its not even a matter of my least favorite. I don't like them.

I will forever and always detest Brett Hull, but I'm pretty sure I already made a thread about that. Can't stand the f*****. Hate that he was ever a Red Wing. Don't care that he helped us win a cup. *flips off Brett Hull*

Currently? Meh. Last Wing I couldn't stand was Hudler.
