#2377408 Mr Holland.....

Posted by darkmanx on 31 March 2013 - 04:47 PM

Ok enough Hossa vs. Franzen talk...

 

How quickly people forget Hossa was one of the ones blamed for not winning the 2009 Stanley Cup. Hossa only had 15 points in 23 playoff games, and we were very disappointed in his lack of scoring in the finals. Franzen had 23 pts in 23 playoff games, and 18 pts in 16 playoff games in 2008. Personally 99.99999% of us would have been pissed if Holland signed Hossa over Franzen after 2009.

 

Since the 2008-09 season Hossa has 208 pts in 231 regular season games (90%), Franzen 150 pts in 208 games (72%). Hossa has a cap hit of $5,275,000, Franzen $3,954,545. Franzen get's paid 75% of what Hossa does.

 

I wouldn't even say hindsight is 20/20, because for dollar value, it's even.

 

Lets not forget to mention, Hossa is the best defensive elite winger in the league. Franzen is.... yeah, Franzen.

We desperately need a goal-scoring winger.

Z and Pav just have nothing to work with. Filppula and Franzen really need to step it up.

 

Gaborik!

Seriously take Franzen off Datsyuk's wing, and move him down to the third line and give Brunner a chance with Datsyuk.

I don't know whats more hilarious. Mickey's laugh of Datsyuk embarassing Couture.

#2375417 Dreger: Wings 'very interested' in Bouwmeester *merged*

Posted by darkmanx on 28 March 2013 - 07:12 PM

Wait what?  The very same sources that suggest Bouwmeester is being shopped are the ones saying Yandle is on the market.  Dreger has reported it repeatedly.  It's not like they're dying to keep him and I'm just wishing here.  The guy is actively being shopped.  And again, Yandle's defense is not that bad.  It's on par with Rafalski's, not a shutdown guy, but responsible and positionally sound. 

 

I would like to see this 'source' that said Yandle is being shopped right now. This is the first i've heard of this.

Why would Phoenix just give up Yandle ? Because we are the Detroit Red Wings and we demand him ? We would have to pay alot more to get him, defensively he's not that great.

 

Calgary is looking to move J-Bo so he would be had for much less, I would rather pay less to get a good defensemen than overpay big time to get Yandle just because we are exploring J-Bo.

That 2 on 1 is a perfect example as to why Brunner should not be on the point.  We need to have two men back on the point at all times.

#2372076 Frk

Posted by darkmanx on 22 March 2013 - 08:43 PM

Yes he does, and he's currently tearing it up.  His 2013 season has already surpassed anything that Jurco did in the Q, AND he's doing it on a worse team, AND Jurco's stat line was super impressive.  I cannot wait until these two are wingers in the NHL.  How weird will it be to go from having elite centers and horrible wingers to having elite wingers and average centers...oh wait, we've got Jarnkrok coming along.  So pumped. 

 

Frk is on by no means a bad team. He plays with 2 players that are going to go top 3 in this years draft. If Halifax is a bad team, I'm not sure what you think a good team is.

#2371756 3/20 GDT : Wild 4 at Red Wings 2

Posted by darkmanx on 21 March 2013 - 06:16 AM

Wild aren't that good. The difference was, Wild players aren't scared to go to the net, our players are. So many pucks come out in front of the net and our guys are standing on the circles.
