@number9: Do you have Franzen's cell phone number and play poker with the guy when he is not on the ice? I feel like you're his PR on this forum. The guy is having an awful year. I mean I have his jersey too and I loved him but can't you admit that his 6 goals in 2 games and 0 in the next 20 every year can get a bit tiresome and that he floats a lot? We are all huge fans here but you simply can't tell me he isn't a problem and that other fans aren't allowed to point this out if they want to on a Red Wings' fan forum right?

Don't you have a anti-Franzen thread you can bring this up in for the 1000th time? Last nights lost had as much to do with Tatar and almost every wing without a Z in his name than it did with Franzen. So yeah I'm gonna be his PR guy if you're gonna single him out over the loss.

We have an open spot at the poker table Thursday nights btw.

Yes. We lose a lot of games because he is useless without the puck and pretty useless even with it this year. I know you love him and his cap hit to death and everything but at some point you have to admit he stinks right now and as nice as 08 and 09 were he shouldn't be here throwing an anchor down on every line he is on especially with the energy we have from the young guys. 

Agreed. If he hadn't played last night we definitely would have won.

Holland simply has lost it's fire and passion. Guy used to be the by far best GM in the damn league. People may or may not like it but the post Z and Pasha era will be a tough one because centers - especially such elite ones - are hard to come by. If Larkin can turn into a solid second line center I would be very happy but I for sure don't expect him to be anything close to these two.
Holland has his work cut out for him and if the Wings are losing Babcock too his job won't get any easier. Also it would have been a wise move to build a more balanced team not just skill over anything and then having hardtime against hard nosed teams that play a shutdown game.

Hopefully you'll get one of ur pleasant surprises

He's been off.
when he is on, he wins games almost single handedly.

Just because some people choose not to look solely at the bad things doesn't mean were defending him as a great player.

Rationality will never win. Franzen blowwwwwssss
