My only complaint so far is that Tatar should get more ice time. Other than that, I like the decisions Babs had made. I think sitting Weiss has been the right move too.

Gonna be a recurring theme this year. Detroit just doesnt have enough proven NHL scoring right now.

Smith barely contributes to the offense at all, he doesn't score goals and he's not on the PP. How exactly is he an offensive defenseman??

C'mon Kip, you can't actually believe that the reason Helm didn't capitalize on all those opportunities was because he was playing wing instead of center?... I would think if anything, he was able to generate so many of those chances because he was on the wing. His speed is his biggest asset and that is most on display on the boards where he is able to cheat a little on the breakouts rather than playing the middle of the ice... Just my opinion.

Anyone else think the tying goal might have been offside? Looked pretty close live and then I really thought it might be on replay.

Do it already. Nobody is going to claim nesty.

#2542896 Franzen to 7-day IR

Posted by wings4thecup06 on 21 October 2014 - 05:31 PM

Sorry but that's absolute bull. You can't compare Miller to Jurco because both have completely different roles on this team. miller is clearly a 4th line guy who is relied on on the PK, whereas Jurco is a scoring forward who is counted on to use his body and speed to create offensive chances


If we actually send Miller down, what does that achieve? Who's going to play on the 4th line? Cleary? Sorry, but that 4th line thus far has been tremendous through 5 games, and if Glendening had the hands of Ovechkin he'd be leading the league in scoring with the number of chances he's had. 


You can't fix one problem by creating another. 


As for Franzen, I know a lot of you hate him, but screw it. He's been on fire thus far. He's 34. We know exactly what he is. And oh yea. Hockey's a contact sport. I'm sure they're far more injuries that ever get reported to the press. Doesn't make it more or less frustrating when they happen, but they just do. Luckily he's not out long term and it's only 7 day IR. So can please, just for once, when we get an injury this season, can all the haters hold off with the 'i told you so's', and actually enjoy this team for what it's worth, which right now is looking quite promising.

I'm OK with that. I just don't think Miller is better than Jurco. I'd rather have Jurco on the 4th line than Miller.

We would lose more games with Jurco on the 4th line over Miller.

I wish franzen was an iron man, but he's 34.
Part of what will make us successful this season is going to be making sure our players stay healthy long term.
And I'd they have some concerns about him right now, its a perfect time to give him some time, that way down the road when we need him he's not at 60% and hurting more than he's helping.

Not to mention if we stay healthy were going to have to wave someone to be roster compliant, this is a good time to see with dats coming if Jurco going to find his scoring touch, or if he needs to be the first call up.
I don't want to lose nestrasil for nothing.

Filppula wanted out and I think TB will regret that deal. He's never had 2 back to back healthy productive seasons.


What's the over/under on "healthy, productive, season"?  Because I'll take your bet.

The quotes from this article make it seem like Weiss and Babcock know quite well that getting Weiss up to game speed and comfortable with our system is going to take time, and they're both willing to take it step by step.
It's also encouraging to hear that they thing he's making progress and going in the right direction.

another quick word on Glenny. His emergence along with Sheahan's would allow us to offer Helm in a deal for something we need. While Helm still has value. This team doesn't need all three, especially when Dats comes back to take up another center spot. Nothing personal against Helm...

Maybe if Helm was the kind of piece that would land us a top pairing d-man I would consider it. But I think he is more valuable to us than he is in a trade. We always seem to be a much better team when he's playing than when he isn't. 


I guess if Buffalo for example would give us Myers ONLY if they get Helm I wouldn't say no, but we know everyone wants guys like Nyquist/Mantha/Jurco.
