In Topic: The Franzen Hate.

Franzen was 6th in goals this year at forward for our team. So there is 5 guys right there. Ok Alfie is not tech. a RW atm. So 4 plus mantha, plus whoever we draft in a couple weeks, plus guys like Helm, Abby, Sheahan, and Jurco. I wonder how many goals Pulkinnen scores playing 18 mins per night with Datsyuk?

So you're saying Datsyuk was our 4th best forward, and Zetterberg 5th? Or are they also behind Mantha, etc.?


Honestly, I'm starting to think you just have a retarded nephew and you're trying to make him feel like a genius...

Nyquist, Tatar, Jurco is close. Plus Weiss possibly, Mantha is coming. The Wings have cap space too. It's not just about Franzen this season, but the likely steeper decline to follow in years to come. Lose the buyout after this summer and then you are just stuck with Franzen.

You're reaching and also changing the scope of the argument. Nyquist is not as good as Franzen. Tatar is way behind. Jurco is no where near close. Mantha has yet to play a pro game. Weiss, who knows.


Maybe all those guys will be better within a few years, maybe we'll sign a better UFA or make a trade. But right now, we have two forwards who are better than Franzen.


Might as well say Datsyuk doesn't belong in the NHL because in 5 years we'll likely have 14 forwards better than him.

The Red Wings do, or are very close to that point forward wise.

Sure, considering the complete set of positive integers, 2 is certainly very close to 6.

To debate the value of Franzen is fine, but to come on here and deny that Franzen has anxiety issues that yes he has, Holland has, his teammates, and every writer that covers the RW's all talk about makes you look a little naive or very new to the RW's team. These issues have been going on for years and have been talked about by EVERYONE for years. This is not something new.

Really? Everyone's been talking about it for years?


I'd wager that 95% of the people here hadn't even heard mention of it until this year, and even most of those that read the 2009 article the speculation is based on had probably forgotten about it.


The whole thing started because Franzen gave a cryptic answer when asked about his injury, and some dips*** writer dug up a 4+ year old translated interview of Franzen talking about the social anxiety he dealt with early in his career in Sweden. Your assertion that his issues are affecting his game or causing him to miss time is 100% speculation.

I like what I've seen from St.Louis and I wouldn't mind him for a couple seasons. Rangers need to keep him after what they gave up for him

Should be easy enough for them. He's signed through next season.
