The even better news of this story is that Franzen is returning Sunday, making this move necessary.  Hope he can play with the fire he did before the injury.

I'm in shock Holland had the balls to actually do it.

Finally, a good roster move decision!


Cleary next and we'll be getting somewhere.

#2475048 Leaders need to be leaders

Zett has 3 points in his last two games, and in an offensively slumping season he is still scoring slightly above a point per game. He is human, mistakes are going to happen, Z isn't the problem here. 


We can pick apart however many reasons we can to find an alternate reason as to why this team is in the shape it is in, but it continues to go back to the main reason. Injuries and commitment to aging roster players that no longer serve a valuable function.


Blaming individual players at this point isn't fair because we are playing at half strength. It's a constant game of shuffle and adapt as players continue to come and go. It's been the story of this season and last. Some guys need to retire, some kids need to play more, and most guys need to stay healthy for more regular periods of time before things begin to improve. It is going to be a lot of up and down until then. 

#2473835 Perspective?

Posted by Son of a Wing on 18 January 2014 - 01:58 PM


See now we are on the same page :)


Once a team is starting to fall behind, it's time to rebuild because the stupid CBA doesn't allow teams to use their own money. I'm not saying blow it all up but I'm obviously very concerned if they aren't going to start the rebuild next year, this team might be looking at a Calgary Flames like situations :(


Personally I just don't see a point in barely making the playoffs and going out in the first or second round and not getting a better draft pick (thanks god we've lucked out with Mantha).


So basically you don't see the point in making the playoffs unless your favorite to win?? 

#2473727 Carter Hutton's Save of the Year

Nice save, but if the Flyers' player gets off a real shot there then that goes in the back of the net.

#2471588 Brian Rafalski signs with ECHL team

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 09 January 2014 - 10:21 PM

If he hadn't retired and still played here everyone would be complaining that he's 40 years old and hasn't retired yet. 


I hope for the best for Raf, he did depart too early but even a consideration of having him return now, no thanks.

Took long enough

#2463320 would you do this trade ...

Posted by dat's sick on 10 December 2013 - 11:43 PM

No sane GM would take a chance on Weiss right now. 




So yes, the Isles would probably accept that trade.

Could have used some of this after the plays against Nyquist and Abby.

#2457610 Datsyuk concussion: To Return Tuesday

Posted by Kira on 24 November 2013 - 11:52 AM

WTF is wrong with this team??? Their top player and arguably the best in the world gets elbowed in the head and not one sorry ass player does anything about it. I don't care if there is a suspension or not what i want to see is the team stand up for themselves and one another at the point when the incident happens, there is something fundamentally wrong with this team and their principles. Illitch should just relocate them to Sweden and let them play over there and Holland will be the happiest man alive. Im sorry to derail the thread but it infuriates me to watch this team and their complete lack of heart and toughness.      

 Just remember, the one person who would have stood up for him got demoted to GR because they absolutely had to have Cleary here.  And now look at what it has cost us.  Just get well quick, sweetie...that's all we can ask.

#2452842 Varlamov Arrested

One is a result/bi-product of the other.

Yeah, but you can say that about anything. I'm still shocked that Don Cherry has any credibility left with anyone.

#2451647 The Metropolitan Division Is Terrible

Posted by 55fan on 07 November 2013 - 03:46 PM

You guys are no fun.

We are too.  We're just not drunk yet.


The suckage of the Metro will help Detroit.  If the Metro sucks, the Atlantic will get to send five teams to the playoffs, thus increasing our chance of being one of those teams.
