#2517650 The Franzen Hate.

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.

Oh good, Eddie gets to call a possible Wings elimination game.

Better have a second pair of pants ready for him.

Babs' obsession with Glendening has gone too far. He lost practically every faceoff tonight and yet was always out there for draws in the defensive zone. Why wouldn't you try Legwand, since there are two centers on that line anyways? Glendening lost the draw cleanly on the Bruins power play goal too, which is where the momentum in the game changed entirely.

The 4th line and Kindl/Lashoff pairing were huge liabilities in this game and they have nowhere to hide against the Bruins.

How do so many scoring chances end up on Quincey's stick? It's really noticeable now bad the d-men are at getting pucks through to the net.

The Wings better find a push here real soon. They aren't challenging Rask at all. Weak wrist shots from the perimeter aren't going to get it done.

Somebody please hurt Marchand for real since he likes faking it anyways.
