In Topic: Who signs 1st?

18 March 2009 - 01:22 PM

we should sign hossa and franzen....hossa first, lose hudler(it hurts me to say it), sammy and a d. we need to keep hossa and the mule, they are our main fire power, asides from z and dats. we can replace the others with our gr crew...hem,leino and ericsson . ps keep flip...he will pay off!

I think so.

Hell, the Wings think Cleary is worth 2.8 million per. I don't see how they could justify Franzen being worth the same. It'd be great if they locked him up to a similar contract though.

I think that Cleary is HIGHLY overpaid and 2.8 would be spent waaay better else where. I love Franzen and if he repeats his playoff performance thumbup.gif However when its all said and done I would rather sign hossa at 6 point whatever then franzen at 4 if he wont take less.

I think he would get 4.0 on the open market if he has another good playoff run.

I agree with that for sure, if he puts a playoff run together like he did last year or even close I say give em the money. Im just not holding my breath...though I am crossing my fingers.

No, were on the same page. I say "big bad Canadians" because If I am a homer for anything then I am a homer for Canadian players... I'm a Canadian, it's in my blood. I wouldn't want to necessarily fill our roster either, a good mix of NA and Euro is what I would like... to get the best of all worlds. But I agree that if our current group of players would add more physicality the over-all result right now would be much better and much more exciting. Franzen is huge, finish a damn body check... pretty sad when Helm who is way smaller is also way more physical and throws way better hits the Franzen. Or Kopecky, beef up man, put some size and strength on that frame and learn to use it.

clap.gif Nicely said my fellow canadian friend! Franzen for the love of god could be a force like Bertuzzi ( you know the Bertuzzi I mean, the one before the incident) or Eric Lindros was in his prime. Franzen has the size and the hands to be an all around "force".

Since you're a Pens fan, I'm going to try to make this simple enough for you to understand.

Ozzie dominated the playoffs last year and he dominated your team. The last thing anyone expected was for him to be this bad this season. Last year it looked like he reinvented himself and there was no reason for this team to pursue another starting goalie, which is why the Wings signed Conklin instead for backup duties.

Get over the fact that Hossa didn't want to play in s***tsburgh. It was basically a one-night stand, just like his stay in Detroit will likely be. I hope I don't act the same way as Pens fans do when he's gone.
