Season over.  Nice penalty kill the whole series.    

 

Let's bring Drew Miller back for 6 more years.  




#2515796 The Franzen Hate.

Posted by The Greek on 25 April 2014 - 01:33 PM

You don't deserve to be flamed for having an opinion. However, acting as if franzen is above reproach does nothing to help your argument. He definitely had a good streak, but has been invisible since.

This will be the wings' last opportunity to buy him out. It is a decision that does deserve to be weighed objectively. He definitely provides good value for the numbers he produces. However, you cannot deny that a lot of his numbers are inflated by scoring in bunches and/or during garbage time. I'm not saying that's how he gets all of his points, but it definitely affects his statistics. Also, the guy's playoff production (his justification for being here for some) have dropped off the cliff. He had 59 points in 51 playoff games 08-10. Since then, he has 11 points in 31 playoff games, and has been a minus player in every playoff since 2010. I don't know what baseball has to do with anything, but those are not good numbers for hockey.

Franzen has shown a very sharp decline. When you couple these facts with the length of his contract, you have to at least considers buyout.

The Bruins are playing at 60% at most and beating us soooo easily.

How does Abby miss that...

 

How does a team make the playoffs with a scrub like that playing on the top line for more than half the season?

I wish I could say it's Boston outplaying us but it's us being cute and just not playing properly. This team needs a power forward to trade for franzen. He's big and fkin useless

 

We need a Wayne Simmonds like no one's business. IMHO

Legwand can generate offense and he's playing withf****** Glendening and Miller, what a joke.

 

Yeah, he must have parked in Holland's spot.

These players don't play hard for Mike Babcock anymore.  Not consistently.  There's no excuse not to compete.  




#2512650 ECQF Game 2 GDT : Red Wings 1 at Bruins 4 - Series tied 1-1

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 20 April 2014 - 04:35 PM

Say it with me everyone... SEVEN-GAME-SERIES.

 

We made the playoffs with two games to spare, the Bruins clinched weeks prior. We are going back home with the series tied 1-1.

 

If this team has proven anything this season it's that they can step up in big moments and win games they shouldn't win. There was some clutch play out of this same team not weeks ago when it came down to making it this far or not. 

 

We might win, we might lose, but we made it this far, and we are facing a tied series now. There's zero reason to jump ship at this point if you have stuck it out all year and seasons prior.

Yes it was. It was totally reactionary, over the top, and it made you look fickle. Like "OMFG we’re losing game 2 after winning game 1 so now our GM sucks and I wish we had a team like Boston!!!!!!"

 

Meanwhile everyone else in the league has, at one time or another wished they had a team like Detroit. Including Boston fans after game 1. 

 

No it wasn't reactionary.  

 

I've been saying that about Holland for the last several years.  He's made too many bad moves in recent seasons.  Or didn't make enough moves at all.

You're forgetting Cleary will be back in the playoffs.

 

This is the time of year he lives for.  He doesn't care about the rest of the season.  He rises to the occasion in the clutch, when most of us would fail under similar pressure.  

 

Don't even joke about it.

 

Don't.

Everyone hates on mule until playoffs


To be fair, he hasn't delivered in the playoffs for about four years now either. That was always his fallback for disappearing for long stretches during the regular season. Sad thing is, up until about three weeks ago, Franzen was very engaged throughout this season when healthy. Now, he's back to being a non-factor.


#2502495 3/27 GDT - Canadiens 5 vs. Red Wings 4

And that's the problem right there. That is unacceptable! Best 12 forwards should play. Jurco should be in the lineup and anything less than that is unacceptable. I'm tired of holland screwing up this team and leaving deserving players in the minors due to roster restrictions. Figure it out holland

 

This.

 

We could easily have at least 5 points more if Nyquist hadn't been buried in the minors because Kenny the Genius matched (!!) an offer by Holmgren (another genius..) for Cleary..

It's now being accepted at fact that Babcock specifically was pushing for Cleary, and that's still a stretch.  Other than him saying he likes Cleary I haven't seen anything that puts it on Babcock. 

 

But Sammy?  That's a new one to me.  Did I miss somewhere that said Babcock was pushing for Samuelsson on the team? 

 

Isn't he the one who likes that right handed powerplay crap.  

 

Are you telling me Holland makes terrible acquisitions and Babcock does nothing about it?  Is he telling Kenny to do one thing and the exact opposite happens?  I have a hard time seeing that going on.  I think it's a mutual decision making process.  Babcock is not a blameless party here when it comes to personnel decisions.

 

Did Babcock have nothing to do with the Quincey trade?  Or Cleary starting over Nyquist when the year began?
