Didn't forget him. Just not sure where he fits. He isn't a scorer. His best position is checking C, which is also Glendenings best position for 1/3 the price. In this day and age of salary caps you can't have 3.5 million cap hits as checkers-which helm will be on his next contract summer 2016. he is a GREAT trade piece. franzen cant' be counted on for anything. I doubt he makes it out of october healthy.
Adding richards is fine, not great. he is just holding that psoition for 1 year untill larkin is ready. Nothing more. I would bet good money that this move is a result of Bashill and Holland chatting about if he is ready and Blashill thinks he needs time. Just a gut feeling.
You've been talking about trading Helm for years. There's a reason he's still a Wing and that's cause bottom 6 guys like Helm help teams win Stanley Cups.
I thought the rangers fans where ok but seeing the board wow they are whinny ******* I mean I get being upset for your tea but don't open your mouth until you look at the two historys their team has won the cup once in 1994 and we have won it in 1997-98 2002-08 don't get cocky thinking we aren't that good 23 years and counting in the playoffs and always a threat they wish they could have that team they do nothing but choke
The whiny Rangers fans are clearly feeding off their assclown coach.
Franzen makes just under $4 mil per year. He may have had some lame games this year, but he was also apparently quite ill for 3 weeks of that goal-less streak so who knows what was going on behind the scenes. I will give him credit though, when he was slumping, he was at least showing a bit of fire. He may have been the guy that got "pissed off" before their 4 goal 3rd period outburst a couple weeks ago. Franzen's biggest issue, like many is consistency. Even Z went 10 or so games without a goal this year and then got what? 4 in 5?
At least the past 3 upsetting seasons are over and the worst thing we have to complain about this year is Franzen's inconsistency and the fact that Kindl is still a Red Wing. I'm gonna say it.....I like this team!
