#2521563 Emmerton-ov: Cory heading to KHL

Any chance Emmerton can take Joakim Andersson along with him?

Why would they need two first line centres?

Yep Nyquist is 25 after all, he is clearly not going to get any better...

#2521124 Next Seasons Needs/Team Future

Posted by Euro_Twins on 19 May 2014 - 09:12 AM

XM I disagree. 3 years from now when the young guys you mention are developed-which they will be, Datsyuk will be gone, Z and Kronwall will be in the late 30's-who knows how much they will still be able to produce, Franzen will be gone I HOPE! Ericsson mid 30's etc.... The point is, the young guys are not coming fast enough to replace what we will be losing, which in fact has been the problem the last 4 or 5 years.
Even if all of the young guys that have already made it to detroit pan out-which history says they will not, none of them are guys any sees a future 80 point guy. Most look like good solid 2nd and 3rd line players. Guys that will score between 15-25 goals with 40-50 points per year. Yes every team needs guys like that. But it is your point per game guys that win cups. Or if a team is able to shut down those point per game guys.

I can see nyquist putting up 70 points/year by then

#2521001 Hindsight Drafting (2005-2012)

Posted by DickieDunn on 17 May 2014 - 05:37 PM

Not that anyone has done this yet, but I kind of laugh when people bring up how other teams are built through the draft, then you look at their top players and they're almost all drafted in the top 10.  Then you look at Detroit.  Their top few scorers other than Alfredsson were drafted 121, 210, 97, 60, and 171 overall, their top 3 D 29, 291, and undrafted, and their starting goalie was taken 64th.  That's one player of their top 9 players taken in the first round.  The Pens, on the other hand, have gotten almost nobody outside of the top 5 in the last dozen years.

Well I've hated Franzen since the beginning. I saw what he was all along.


A clown?  :ninja:

Today's game just added fuel to the fire.....

#2514861 Classy move by Tootoo.

Posted by PredsFanTheBayouState on 24 April 2014 - 06:06 PM

I love that man.  To overcome demons whilst living with personal pain is a hard thing.  I wish he'd be up with us now, but at least he's playing.

just the other day,i watched the story of him and his brother terrance and could not hold back the tears.he is not only playing for himself but for his brother too.

Franzen has 11 playoff points the last 3 years. Scored 1 goal the last 3 months of the year until our eventual elimination. Those 5 goals in 7 games is a streak he should have gone on 4-5 times in a year not once.

Gus has 23 goals in 28 games. Now that's a real streak that got us into the playoffs, not Franzen's 5 goals in February

#2514327 Least Favorite Wings Players

Franzen -- nothing worse than watching a player who could do more lazily skate around and say scoring goals isn't his priority.

He doesn't even deserve the playoff performer fallback excuse anymore either. Hasn't done s*** in the playoffs for four years now. So sick of watching this bum have fun for a handful of games and then disappear the rest of a season.
