In Topic: Franzen having trouble processing information

10 January 2014 - 04:42 PM

A lot of folks have been giving Franzen a hard time over his concussion and I would like to provide my own experience in the hope people can understand that a seemingly innocent 'love tap' can cause a TBI (traumatic brain injury). 


With all the strides being made on TV about concussions, with so many men who have now committed suicide because they could no longer live in such pain, it hurts me that the Wings community is so callous and shallow in their responses to such a very serious injury.


Thank you for saying what needed to be said.

I'm sorry to hear about your ailments. I hope you get better. Sincerely.

Osgood isn't Swedish.

But Johan Franzen is, and I thought the discussion was about how to pronounce his name, not Osgoods. Maybe I misunderstood.

Osgood pronounces Franzen's last name the way Franzen pronounces his last name.  (Also note that Franzen pronounces his first name with a hard J): http://youtu.be/GnE7obede_A?t=1m5s


That's him accomodating the non-swedish speakers. That's definitely not how his name is actually pronounced.

annoyed hearing "kronvall"  instead of "kronwall"

You'd better hope you never have to hear Swedish people talking about him then.
