In Topic: The Franzen Hate.

LOL, "most of his time missed last year wasn't because of an injury"... You're kidding right?... So I guess that concussion he had was just an excuse for his "mental illness" right? This "mental/emotional issue" that you speak of is completely rumor based and pure speculation by some half ass beat writer. Have you ever heard this out of Johan's mouth or even out of the coaches or general managers mouth? If so, I would love to see a link. I don't believe that Franzen has any more s*** going on in the way of "hurt feeling" or social anxiety or the sort, more than any of the other billions in the world. Everyone has their s*** and Franzen is no different, but to say that he would quit his job because of this is absurd.

 

Actually Rich's statement was true. Franzen missed far too many games when not injured. I also don't want to downplay how serious mental issues can be, but as a hockey players who's getting paid millions to play, you have to push through whatever you're going through and play.

Not my best, but didn't have time to do it better.

You don't seem to appreciate facts when they contravene your arguments. Unfortunately for your cause, full information on Filppula's 2012 injury is available on numerous websites, and the forum thread to which you refer is available for all to see that you are placing words directly into my virtual mouth. Quite frankly, you're wasting your time.

 

That said, I've still not figured out why your defenses of Filppula are so vehement and emotional that they come replete with personal attacks against those who criticize him.

 

He hasn't been anymore personal than you have. You've said things that are hypocritical and have double standards when it comes to Fil when compared to other players. If you dish it out, be prepared to take it back and stop with the drama.

First off, that was a 9 week difference from injury to season start. Secondly, filppula played when he felt better, not because he felt he had to, so he obviously felt like he was close to %100 and as others have stated, his skating was fine. He wanted a big contract and he got it. But you cannot deny he was play was atrocious

 

His play was no where near atrocious. Even when he's not getting points he was still consistently one of the best defensive forwards on the ice.  His point total was bad, no one will deny that, but calling his play atrocious is ridiculous. 

 

That said, he would not have performed well here this season. He's playing with higher talent players, playing on the power play, and getting more minutes than he did here. He had s***ty linemates here, was getting shoved down to the 3rd line, and always being juggled on different lines with different players. No one is going to play well under those situations. Just look at the team this year, we have the same exact problem with his replacement. I honestly think Weiss would have a hell of a lot better season on another team. Our 2nd and 3rd lines have just been bad this year.

So many whiners in here.  No this isnt the worst team in the last 25 years, no this team doesnt "suck".  They might "suck" in shootouts but who cares?  4th in the East and havnt lost in regulation in a while.

 

They need everyone healthy at once and we'll see whats up.

 

Also, no Grand Rapids would not beat the Red Wings. 

 

They are sucking. Bottom line, they're playing terrible right now. You can argue all you want, but all that does is convince me that you haven't actually been watching the games.  We were all healthy outside of Helm, and just Helm doesn't solve the problems that we have. We have too many old players, we have too many floaters.  Players need to be held accountable or I don't see any of it changing. We need to bring up the young talent. Get Nyquist up here, bench players like Cleary, Sammy, and Franzen when they float or don't contribute.  Their play is nothing short of pathetic.
