Because he's a damn good hockey player, that deserves to be an everyday player on this team... or he's going to be a start elsewhere, rather than here.

Helm and Tatar play with drive and passion, Franzen does not(wish Babs could find a way to motivate him)

every time I see Mrazek and his #34 jersey it reminds me of Norm Maracle

 

anyone remember him? every time he'd play someone would inevitably say 'will we see a.... maracle on ice tonight?' heh? heh? maracle? get it?

 

and oh yeah we're up 2-0 now, Go Helm! Go Tatar!

Any and every time I fantasize about blockbuster Red Wings trades, Abdelkader never really factors in. Not because I don't think any team would want him, but because I wouldn't want to give him up. It's a combination of him being good and the fact that we really don't have another guy like him. He's not one of a kind and sensational; there are other guys like him in the league. Some teams have more than one Abdelkader. But we only have one. So I feel he's very valuable to this team. He's the only guy who consistently mucks it up, gets his nose really dirty, crashes and bangs. And he's been generating chances for us lately, because he does what he does well.

THIS IS OUR ABDELKADER! THERE ARE MANY LIKE HIM BUT THIS ONE IS OURS!

aw darn, Franzen not on the bench to start the 3rd

 

I hope it's b/c Babs sent his ass home

the more I watch this team the more I would be willing to sell my soul for a top-tier puck moving d-man or two

 

though I would settle for Holland selling his soul for one




#2449525 Franzen believes hes playing well.

Posted by datterberg1340 on 01 November 2013 - 06:20 PM

Franzen is a shell of his former self, and will not ever be the same again

 

we will see flashes from time to time, but I think it's far too late to expect him to start producing offense at a consistent level

 

if he doesn't get the hint from Z's recent comment, or Babs putting him at center to FORCE him to be more engaged on the ice, then he never will(spoiler- he won't)

 

it reminds me of when the Oilers GM was complaining about Dustin Penner's lackadaisical play after he got his ridiculous contract, and he said something along the lines of, "Penner saw getting this contract as an end point, and he should've seen it as a starting point"

 

that's how I feel Franzen looks at his contract and how much effort he thinks he needs to put in, it's like he's thinking, "Hey I worked hard to get this awesome lifetime contract, now it's time to sit back and watch the money pile up"

 

ok maybe that's a bit much, but y'all get my point; he doesn't feel he has much to play for, he's won a Cup, he's got his money, to him the rest is gravy

 

and the difference between Z's contract and Franzen's contract is Z has passion for the game and loves to go out there and compete and be the best player on the ice, Franzen does not have that passion, except maybe in little tiny bursts

Why be surprised?  This was a .500 team last season.  

 

Not like we signed Crobsy and Chara in the offseason.  

yeah but we DID sign a guy who now wears Malkin's jersey #

 

that's pretty much the same thing as signing Malkin himself, right? Right?

does anyone think that Holland realizes he's made a large error in re-signing all these has beens to ridiculous deals ala Cleary, Bert, Sammy?

 

it saps the team of any youthful exuberance, speed, SCORING, etc.

 

I just wonder if he thinks he's done a good job the last few years

 

of course Alfie scores as I'm typing this lol

From what I'm reading, sounds like we've come out and sh*t the bed after previously sh*tting the bed last game

 

nice to see they're responding to their last poop fest by having another one

 

especially against a banged up, road-weary team missing their all-star goalie

How are they looking? Didn't realize the stupid NHL network was showing the game, so I can't watch it on Gamecenter.

yeah me neither, I freakin' hate that even if you get Gamecenter you still can't watch all the games unless you also have 2 other services(NBCSN and NHL Network)- it's a bunch of crap; plus, it sucks for all of us w/o NHL Network since they've decided to show 14 Wings games this year, that's about 1/6 of the season we can't see....

 

ok rant over, GO WINGS!!

Tatar looks great. Skates hard and drives to the net.

so it's probably about time that Babs sends him back down, then

 

you know, for more seasoning
