#2566098 Franzen on IR

Posted by dirtydangles on 26 January 2015 - 09:12 PM

You never ask for a player to be injured - but I can't say I will miss Franzen while he is out. He has not been contributing of late and isn't really putting in the effort to make up for his dip in production. 




#2565672 Mantha Still Hopes to Play in Detroit This Season

Posted by dirtydangles on 23 January 2015 - 10:53 AM

1. Mantha needs to earn it first - guys like Nyquist, Tatar, Pulks worked very hard and produced before being called up - shouldn't be any different for this guy unless Holland magically decides he gets special treatment

 

2. There are so many guys ahead of Mantha if there is an injury - right now we have Franzen and Jurco on the sideline and Pulks is clearly ahead of Mantha on the call-up so its not likely that we see him up over those 3 unless we have a string of injuries somehow.

 

3. The wings will want him to spend time developing properly rather than player lower minutes in Detroit and bouncing around between teams.

I honestly think Sheahan has the 2nd softest hands on the team. The combo of his strength and passing ability makes him so special.




#2563345 Could the Wings be better off trading Pav & Hank for draft picks?

Posted by dirtydangles on 15 January 2015 - 02:35 PM

We need those guys to teach excellence to our young guys so we don't turn out as the oilers.

The announcers on the Oilers feed just said Detroit has the best defence in the league.

#2560789 Bertuzzi hoping for Professional Tryout

Posted by dirtydangles on 06 January 2015 - 12:22 AM

oh god please stay far away kenny. we don't need more forwards. especially the old and washed up type.




#2560169 Are the Wings a Contender?

Posted by dirtydangles on 01 January 2015 - 07:46 PM

I think we should be giving O'Reilly a long look. Considering we need to draft a surefire C prospect this coming draft we might as well try to use that pick in a package for O'Reilly. 

 

We have some Dmen knocking on the door already in GR and I would be happy to wait one year for a few to pan out. 

 

The real question is if Colorado is willing to trade with us after all these years.

I know I'm beating a dead horse, but does a shot from the point by the Wings ever get on net?  Or even deep?

I swear Sammy is out there in spirit hunting those shin pads.

Well that will probably do it...still will be watching in the new Nyquist jersey.

THIS GUY - the announcer on hockey night in canada just called datsyuk and bozak as two of the game's top stars - one of these is not like the other...


I love Gus but the guy needs to put on like 10lbs of muscle this offseason. He looks like the equivalent of Toad in mario kart out there getting pushed around like nothing.

can't believe how much the leafs are getting away with. kadri has gotten away with a good 1 or 2 holds. 


did helm get robbed or did he just not get it up?


Our 3rd line is now a complete non factor.

 

Pulk would look pretty good on it right about now. Just saying.

anyone would look better than the current franzen.

The hockey night in canada guy is just going off about how detroit always gets away with stick in the hands more than any other team and that our first penalty was justice. 




#2556369 Rank our griffins d prospects

Posted by dirtydangles on 13 December 2014 - 01:40 AM

I am so torn on this. Obviously Ouellet is the most NHL ready right now and I think that Sproul has all the tools to be an absolute stud in this league if he puts things together (which I'm not sure that he is) - I originally hoped that Sproul could be a Weber-Lite.

 

But I have to say that Jensen is probably the guy for me. When I watch the Griffins live he always stands out for me at ice level. He is lightning fast and moves the puck very well. He seems like a Duncan Keith-Lite type player in my eyes when I watch him. I just think he could be a very reliable player in our system and his game will translate well to the NHL. 

 

Backman is the kind of player that you won't know what will happen until he play in the NHL. He will either light it up or he will shy away from the physicality of the game. He is fairly tall but isn't very bulky/heavy. I have no idea how well he will transition - wild card.

 

Marchenko is probably the guy I am lowest on. He just doesn't really dominate in any one facet of the game (he is okay at pretty much everything). I see a RH Ericsson in him sort of. He hasn't been quite the same for me since the ankle injury. That being said - I still like him a lot!
