Fischer only played a little in the AHL too. 25 games over two years. And also a Q product.

 

But I'm fairly sure the last player to jump from junior with no AHL time at all was Yzerman.

Buying out players only happens when there significantly overpaid. Franzen, regardless of ur own qualms with him, is worth 4 million, and would get more than that per year on the open market. Tootoo, whether u like him or not, doesn't play, and is therefore worthy of a buyout.

Sure Franzen has that ridiculously long contract, but I'm willing to bet he's still enough decent at 38. If I'm wrong when that rolls around ill change toon, but till then I believe

In addition to Yzerman, there was also Lane Lambert that same season (83-84).

Watched the Griffs game online last night.  They're announcers said Kenny had told them if the Griffs are still paying when Val D'ors is done Mantha will be sent to the GR

 

Athanasiou and Backman are going to be good ones.  I've also been impressed by RH Dman Nick Jensen

Then send him packing. Not looking at stats Franzen is not worth much. I would rather an asset in his place then a liability. He's Ovi except 1/10th the player, when he isn't scoring he doesn't do anything else.

I don't think he's a liability at all, just not much of an asset when he's not scoring. He's also on 1/10 of Ovis contract

Mantha with 2 goals and an assist tonight as Val D'or takes a 2 game to 1 lead in the QMJHL finals.

He's getting a "realgud" look at Mantha.

I've been trying to put my finger on who it is he reminds me of. I think if Thomas Vanek and Max Pacioretty had a baby, that baby is who I'm thinking of.

Mantha is the only reason I haven't cancelled my cable yet, in case Val D'or wins it and they head to the Memorial Cup.

Franzen actually has 41.5% of Ovie's cap hit.

Figured somebody would actually run the numbers. The post I was responded to called Franzen 1/10 of the player Ovi is... Naturally I played ball

Ovi scores what 45-50 goals a year? Franzen 25.

Ovi also hits and fights(not as much any more as his teammates usually do it for him). And Franzen ummm doesn't.

So right there much better.

They both have there moments of floating but watching nearly as many caps games as wing games in terms of excitement ovi is ten times more exciting and is a legitimate threat every time whereas Franzen just isn't.
