stop calling him Mule, stop calling him Pav, stop calling him Z....jeez, these names are used so we don't have to type the entire name out. If you enjoy writing Nestrasil everytime you talk about him, go for it. I for one, do not care if people call him Nesty.
What franzen "normally does" is worlds better than what nestrasil has done this season, regardless of all this energy. Until we have someone who can put up number similar to franzen there's no reason we should not have him in the lineup when healthy. I don't think Anderson is a problem but if you give me he or franzen I take mule everytime. Does the reply usual work ok on iPhones? I'm new here as you can see
Jurco and Nesty have100X more energy than Franzen and actually have the other team turning around to watch them scrambling all over the ice. Franzen one dimensional and ALL teams know his inconsistencies... I am not denying the fact that before his well expected injury, he was playing good. I did praise him by saying one game "Who is this Franzen guy and what did he do with my Francine..." but that doesn't mean that he is going to bring anything more to the table that he doesn't normally bring. I guess I should have used the term IMO, he is replaceable. I happen to think that the chemistry that Jurco brings to this team with Tatar and Sheahan, is better than throwing Franzen in there to float around and put up 5 points in 4 games every couple of months...then get injured again. The team is cruising along no worse now than what it was with him in the lineup, and its not like he is going to return and put up 40 goals this season, he is not a difference maker. That is the tell-tale right there.
HahahHa Nestrasil better than Franzen? Keepem comin lefty u jokester u
Leftwinger: so you would rather Anderson or nestrasil in the lineup than franzen? I don't thin franzen is the one who should be taking the heat for taking spots from another player with Anderson and nestrasil in the lineup
I wasn't happy lol ... I don't think people should hope for weiss to fail but be prepared incase he does . He hit 60 pt plateau twice playing on on a Florida team where he got top line minutes and ppl time and nothing was ever expected of him
Prior to coming here he had 4 pts in 17 games with Florida and last year he had 4 in 26 here (injury or not) Now Babcock isn't even suiting him up , you don't think if weiss was doing so good in pre season and practice Babcock wouldn't put him in the top 2 lines ?especially with datsyuk out?
I hope weiss wakes up and gets us a 60 pt season cause we really need it , I'm just not expecting it
Tatar was a healthy scratch for numerous games at the beginning of last season and look how he turned out.
Don't judge Weiss until he has played healthy for the Wings. He may succeed; he may fail. But it's too early to tell and speculating about Babcock's preseason mind games with any player is futile.
