#2515789 The Franzen Hate.

Posted by joesuffP on 25 April 2014 - 01:17 PM

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

#2268819 What do you guys have to say about Filpulla now?

Posted by Nevermind on 10 March 2012 - 04:14 AM

See, you started well talking about Flip, but then veered OT talking about Franzen and lost everyone.....yes, you are correct he is our 3rd/4th forward in terms of skill/points. In terms of effort he is more like 12th/13th. If he put in half as much effort as Dats/Flip/Helm etc he would be an all-star.

Exactly. Most of us complain about Franzen because we know he's talented enough to produce much more. If he really wanted to, he could be an elite player in the regular season as well. Instead he tends to float for long stretches and looks bored. Even tonight, he didn't do much until the end of the third period when things got interesting.

Based on past history though, I'm sure he'll win us over in the playoffs.

Sorry I made a spelling error. I wasn't informed that I was participating in an online spelling b. I guess if I was you and had no comeback I would probably have to make a pathetic attack. I'm sure you triumph my bachelors degree and probably make 7 figures too hey? Let's keep this about discussing hockey alright? I have to be professional all day at work, I don't need that s*** here. <----- God, I am really going to contradict myself in this thread...... Oh well, I'm the f***ing man

Trump? And if you're going to brag about your education, it might be worthwhile to put the apostrophe in "bachelor's degree". And the cents don't count as part of the seven figures. Besides, who actually says stuff like that?

It's sad that this country's in a state where its self-proclaimed professionals have so little humility and intelligence left. Then again, you do seem to share a lot of the same qualities as most investment bankers.

Watched this poolside from my Florida vacation rental. Great 1st and 3rd periods for the Wings.

Great to beat the Chokes.

Thanks to the freeredwings.tv stream for the great stream....donation coming as soon as I get home.

#2259009 Sharks May overcome your streak. Otherwise it would be a great game.

Posted by 55fan on 19 February 2012 - 03:24 PM

We won. Of course it's possible that the Sharks could end our streak. We do play them again next season.

#2202784 No more Versus

Hockey coverage doesn't need more women, it needs more intelligent reporters. I could care less what they have between their legs, provided they have something between their ears.

So you do care?


#2197489 Ranking NHL Broadcasters

Posted by Detroit # 1 Fan on 09 July 2011 - 02:47 AM

That is, quite frankly, the worstf****** list I've ever seen. As an aspiring broadcaster, that makes me embarrassed that someone is allowed to comment and rate broadcasters when he has no clue about the subject at hand.

He rates the St Louis Blues and the Phoenix Coyotes broadcasts as 4 stars, those are the worst broadcast teams in the NHL. Bernie Federko and Tyson Nash are the worst color guys in the league, I'd take 3 Pierre McGuires over them anyday of the week.

Then we got TERRY CRISP AND WHATS HIS f***IN NAME AS A 5 STAR BROADCAST TEAM. These guys are a disgrace to the game, there boring rants, awful voices and all around no knowledge of hockey whatsoever. (Actually, Crisp is an intelligent hockey mind, but an awful broadcaster) Makes me sick.

Daniels is one of the best broadcasters in the league, Murph and Mickey are funny and insightful. Homers? Sure, a bit, but every announcer for a team is a homer. Kinda theref****** job you morons, and they are one of the better home broadcasts in the league. f*** this list, the writer knows nothing about broadcast journalism, or for that matter, hockey.

DMac has been on the airwaves a few times over the years and he does a good job. It's always nice getting an inside perspective from former pro athletes as opposed to only getting the fratboy opinion columnist perspective that is constantly rammed down our throats.

#1915703 When Does Osgood Start?

Posted by edicius on 14 March 2010 - 12:58 PM

As much as I like Osgood, I have to think that Babcock goes with Howard as the #1 the rest of the way, including - if we make them - the playoffs. If Jimmy falters at that point, we have a Stanley Cup winning goaltender to fall back on. I don't foresee Ozzie getting any more than perhaps two more starts this season. He'll have to wait until next season to get his 400 wins.

Quenneville would be stupid to play Huet over Niemi in the playoffs, seeing as Huet doesn't have playoff success in the first place - how much worse could Niemi be, even as an unknown postseason quantity? But this is Joel Quenneville we're talking about, so anything could happen with them.

Yeah, well we choose to. Get over it.

I couldn't care less what you choose. Get over yourself.
