#2434821 Franzen: "I am not a goal scorer"

Posted by F.Michael on 03 September 2013 - 03:47 PM

Weird. This is a pure mental/attitude issue, and I have to wonder what his deal is and how how Babs has tried to approach it. He really could do so much more.

Holland needs to find a hypnotist who can convince Franzen that he's Wendel Clark.

No more Dodge  - Ram truck commercials.

#2434677 How much do the Wings need another defenseman?

Posted by F.Michael on 02 September 2013 - 08:36 AM

I was impressed with the poise, skill set, and maturity of Danny DeKeyser...I honestly feel this young man can be a top pairing Dman within the next few seasons.

#2434344 Winter classic tickets

Blazer - Many folks here in the States, and Canada will use StubHub...




It's very reputable, efficient, and I've used it myself a handful of times.


Best of luck!

Fake laces, and the 'stars' = lame.


Add real laces, and remove the 'stars' = pretty good.

Well.....Our very own Red Wings are doing it to those of us who wish to attend the Winter Classic...


Please correct me if I'm wrong, but those who purchased tickets for the WC were more or less 'forced' into purchasing tickets for the Alumni game at Tiger Stadium?

#2431678 Tootoo back to Nashville?

Posted by F.Michael on 27 July 2013 - 08:30 PM

From what I've gathered it sounds as though there's not much "factual news" taking place so some writers conjure something up to help pass the time...I guess that's ok...


Personally - I'd rather keep Tootoo a Red Wing, and buy out, or send down to the AHL guys like Sammy/Bert/Emdog...


As for the "rumor" of Detroit having interest in Franson (another ex-Pred) - sure the Maple Leafs are struggling to keep their roster under budget, but I'm guessing a deal will get done since he's been a solid 2nd pairing Dman with both clubs (Preds/Leafs)...Not sure what Holland would send back to Toronto, and besides - would we have a log jam on D if Franson became a Wing?

Pavel wants to travel in a modern aircraft that has a 99.99999% chance of not crashing.

What's the deal with soooo many games aginst our old Western Conference rivals, and why not until Dec. 21st a game against the Maple Leafs?

#2428656 Parros signs with Montreal

Posted by F.Michael on 07 July 2013 - 08:28 PM

It just occurred to me that Briere could hide in Parros' stache if trouble started.

#2427879 Wings sign Stephen Weiss, 5-years, $24.5m

Posted by F.Michael on 06 July 2013 - 12:23 AM

I like Weiss better than Filppula so I suppose I'm jelly with this.

I think the general consensus is that many here are happy with the signing since it became frustrating watching Filppula waste scoring opportunities by having the "pass 1st" mentality.

#2427870 Brunner Contract Talks

Posted by F.Michael on 06 July 2013 - 12:08 AM

Surprised he didn't sign elsewhere so far...maybe he should accept Ken's offer after all.

Well...He's only been in the NHL for one 48 game season...He's outta his mind if he think's he can command anything more than $3 million.


I do agree with you though that he should've accepted a 2 year deal with Detroit; maybe there's still a chance he, and Holland can come to an agreement.

#2426429 Wings in on Alfredsson

Posted by F.Michael on 05 July 2013 - 10:18 AM


It damned well better be less than $6 million.

I was hoping it would be no more than $4 million.

#2426421 Wings in on Alfredsson

Posted by F.Michael on 05 July 2013 - 10:16 AM

Just realised this as well...Alfie wears #11...Does that mean Cleary is the odd man out :lol:

#2426050 Trade/Buyout thread

Posted by F.Michael on 04 July 2013 - 05:43 PM

Good trade for both Boston and Dallas.


Wish Kenny would do something like this hate to say it

Well.....Our "good" players are worth keeping.....Nobody wants our garbage.


Seguin hasn't lived up to expectations in Beantown, and to me that move made by ex-Leaf GM Burke to land Kessel is looking better, and better for the Leafs.

No, no, no, no to Danny Alfredsson.


Just no.
