#2270494 Cleary, Bertuzzi, Hudler and Franzen

Posted by CrimsonFlame on 15 March 2012 - 01:01 AM

Raw stats don't mean anything. Just looking at Franzen's numbers makes you think "oh yeah ok he seems to do good he deserves a huge contracnt"

But if you actually watch the games you can clearly see he is pretty much a no show. He doesn't do ANYTHING most of the time. Just skates around minding his own business. And all of those goals he scores, are usually done at pointless times. IE Last night when we were already down 2 (or 3 I can't remember) goals to the Kings. Or better yet when we're up 2 or 3 goals.

Playoff preformer or not, I want you to play your heart out EVERY TIME you step out onto the ice. Not just in the post season. Because once you start trending in a direction you typically keep following it. And right now Franzen is NOT trending in a positive direction in any facet of the game.

I think this thread title should be changed to (Blank) at Anaheim Ducks since clearly the Red Wings didn't show

Anyone still think MacDonald is an NHL goalie? If you go one-on-one against him there is a 90% chance you will score. That is an AHL goalie right there.


If people are scoring against JMac one on one then the problem is with out DEFENSE. Not with our goalie. It should never be one on one with our goalie EVER.

I think it's safe to assume that we are SCREWED if Lids retries and Stuart bounces to the west coast next year.

#2268313 What do you think needs to be done to fix the PP/PK

There's one thing I absolutely hate about our power play. More often than not we spend a minimum of thirty seconds cycling the puck. Just passing back and forth and back and forth and back and forth and back and forth waiting for the perfect opportunity to shoot. Maybe I just prefer a different style of hockey but if it were up to me I would throw the puck on the net as often as possible. At least when you shoot at the net it generates a chance to score. Not always a good chance, but a chance none the less. I at least prefer to have the chance rather than spending all two minutes just passing the puck around getting a total of two shots in what should be two minutes of free offense.

Oh that and then there are just those power plays where it seems like WE are the ones down a man. But that's a whole different animal.

watching the babcock interview from this morning, and he mentioned nick will play with either white or kronwall, and Q will play with big E. so where is stuart? Has there been any talk of him being scratched tonight?


I would assume that Stuart is playing with either White or Kronwall, which ever is not playing with Lids.

It can't be potentially the game of the year if the most exciting player in the world is not on the ice.


But Crosby doesn't even play for those teams! :hehe:

My roomate is a massive Canucks fanboy so Ive got a case of beer and bragging rights riding on this game ... Pavel out is a HUGE blow, but f**k it, get it done boys! Really got a gut feeling this will be a playoff series this spring. This game could be the deciding factor in home ice advantage.


Even if you lose, just remind him how good that beer must taste coming out of a Stanley Cup since Vancouver doesn't have one. There's no possible way to come back from that.

Well we better pray to God we get the first seed. Because if we don't have home advantage every series we're screwed.
