#2521558 Emmerton-ov: Cory heading to KHL

Any chance Emmerton can take Joakim Andersson along with him?


#2521193 Blues re-sign Elliott, announce Miller won't be back

Posted by GoWings1905 on 19 May 2014 - 06:38 PM

Miller isn't going to sign for a 50/50 timeshare. Besides, that is a ton of money tied up in goalies. The Red Wings have far bigger issues to address. 




#2520309 ECSF : (5) New York Rangers vs. (2) Pittsburgh Penguins

Posted by GoWings1905 on 13 May 2014 - 09:03 PM

The Pens are a joke. How do you win only one cup and collapse so frequently in the playoffs with that core of players? I hate to give Chicago credit for anything, but at least they continue to build incredible depth to support the high draft picks acquired from tanking.

I definitely want the Rangers to win it all now.

Who would you rather have? Mule or Rick Nash and his two goals in his last 28 playoff games?

#2518732 Wings will buy out Tootoo, not Franzen.

Every player makes mistakes. Obviously some more noticeable than others. Datsyuk turned the puck over a few times in the series as well. Do we hate him now to? Face it. Hating on Mule is the hip thing to do right now. Cleary and Sammy haven't been playing, so there had to be someone else to blame for all the teams problems. Franzen worked hard in that series. But because he didn't score, he will be seen as lazy. There has been times in his career he has no doubt not worked hard. These playoffs were NOT one of them. 


Pav scored three goals in five games too. If Franzen was doing other things in the series, then OK, maybe I can overlook a very inopportune turnover. What other conclusion could people draw from Franzen if he isn't scoring? He doesn't kill penalties, isn't physical and doesn't set his teammates up for scoring chances either. Despite his whining to the media, Franzen's one job on this team is to put the puck in the net. One goal in 23 games -- there's an effort problem involved in that for a player that logs as many minutes as Franzen, yet contributes nothing else while being on the ice.

I've given Franzen the benefit of the doubt before, but he has been a bum in the playoffs for four years now. Playoff Franzen isn't suddenly going to reappear with age and an already questionable work ethic. Franzen gets all of this backlash because he earned it; not due to Cleary and Sammy no longer being around.

The Rangers play back-to-back in Games 6 and 7 against the Flyers. Then they have to turn around after one day off and play three in four nights to open the series with the Penguins. Funny how that always seems to work out when Pittsburgh is involved.

Not one of the kids had a pt in the playoffs either, but they are cool and new unlike Franzen


If they perform like that for four years running in the playoffs, I will be all over them too. Franzen is a veteran; the kids were playing in their first series against the best team in hockey. Major difference between the two.

41 pts in 54 gp for $4 mill is fine by me. Expecting Franzen to be our teams goal scoring X factor in most games is unrealistic IMO. He's a $4 million dollar player, not a $6 or a $7 million dollar player like Datsyuk and Zetterberg.

"But he could be so much better!"

No he can't. He's good for 50-60 pts a season and that's it. Expecting more bc of his brief 08-09 playoff streak is unfair.

One goal in 23 games, none in the playoffs. How can he possibly not do better than that? None of us expect him to be the Euro Twins. Franzen should be able to perform more consistently than he has, though. What else is he doing on the ice if he isn't scoring goals besides passing the puck up the middle to the wrong team?

His stupidity helped cost us this game.  


One penalty doesn't overshadow everything else Smith did well. He played a really strong series otherwise at both ends.

Smith has played a really good series. Too bad Alfie couldn't get the puck to whoever was wide open in front of the net.

Everyf****** time we score a penalty is called, one sided officiating.


Agreed, but that one is hard to overlook. Unless you are the Penguins in the SCF.

Does Marchand ever just play hockey?

I wouldn't care if Franzen, Alfie and Legwand all never played another game for the Red Wings. Just don't see what any of them provide going forward.

Buyout Franzen rightf****** now. Don't even let him fly home with the team since he didn't bother to show up and play.
