Franzen is one of the last people we want the youngsters taking an example from.  You want guys that go out giving 100% every shift of every game to be your leaders.  Not someone who says the regular season bores him or that hes not supposed to be a scorer as an excuse for his poor and streaky play. Look at his game before the contract and after and you will see he put himself into easy mode. He now will average 1-3 pts a night for 5-10 games and then disappear for the next 25-30. You'll win more with guys that consistently score a point game to game as opposed to someone who stocks up a couple points a for a couple games and then gets nothing the next quarter of the season. Especially when that player is in your top 6 and sees PP time. Ive said it before and I will continue to say it that if hes not scoring Franzen bring absolutely nothing to the team. When hes in his 20+ game slumps your better off having a 4th line grinder out there than him. Just because a guy is a veteran doesnt make him a good leader.


Now considering his health. When he states he went months without being able to hold his children for a couple minutes because of his head injury the fact that hes even trying to play again is messed up. As a fan of the team I dont want him back and as a human being not wanting to see another human with disabling brain damage I dont want to see him back.


Disappear for 30 games??? When was this? Sure he wasn't just injured? lol


Franzen brings nothing when he's not scoring? What exactly does Tatar bring when he's not scoring?


Franzen was on pace to be 3rd among Detroit forwards in blocked shots last season. 2nd only to Glendening and Miller. He was also on pace to be 6th among our forwards in hits.

I have a black car. :)

Also when I played high school hockey. A kid on my team had white skates. Let's just say we made fun of him a lot lol.



We had a guy we faced all the time that had white skates.. he got a lot of "what, were they all out of hockey skates?" :P


You two and your teammates have obviously never witnessed the awesome epicness that is a Seals game.



#2623116 Red Wings sign D Mike Green (3-years, $18-million)

Posted by number9 on 13 August 2015 - 08:39 PM

Well you see I did say, I predict....not that it will happen.  Don't wanna open up another one of those son's, brother's, uncle, daddy, sister's dog catcher debates!
But since we're in the subject......just kidding!

What does Helms sons brothers uncle dads sisters dog catcher have to do with predicting Mike Green wins a Norris and retires here?

#2623048 Things you would like to see for 2015-16 Season

If Jeff Blashill really means it when he says " I dont tend to look at what players cant do. Now, we certainly want to get better in areas that they need to get better at.  I always judge players on did they make more positive plays than negative plays ..." then Brendan Smith is by no means a lock for that sixth defense spot.  Ya know, given that the only thing he seems to really excel at is "not being Jakub Kindl". 
Edit:  Also, a little tidbit from Khan: 
"Coach Jeff Blashill has indicated he might play Helm on the wing on the third line, centered by Luke Glendening".  :eh:

Why wouldn't he want Luke's RHed shot on the RW? This guy is worse than Babcock

#2622784 Las Vegas rumored to get an expansion team

Posted by number9 on 10 August 2015 - 04:15 PM

I've been to the Grand Canyon. It wasn't grand at all, just a big hole in the ground. False advertising. No wonder the yotes never worked.

Not wanting to play for Detroit isn't, by itself, a reason for me to dislike a player.  Obviously I'd like all the players I really like to play for my favorite team, but that's not realistic.  I didn't like Kesler when he was a Canuck because that entire team was pretty despicable with their whiney, divey, cheap brand of play.  But that really was the culture they promoted up there.  Since that time though, I've had the opportunity to watch a lot of Kesler and the guy is a committed, two way, workhorse.  Very few guys bust their ass on the ice like he does.  He was the Ducks best player in the playoffs this year, playing very solidly against Toews, and generally being the on ice leader that neither Getzlaf or Perry ever will be.  He was also a beast in the 2010 Olympics for team USA. 
By all accounts he's a complete dickhead, and almost every other player hates his guts.  But I've never minded guys like that.  They usually rise to the occasion.  Bob Kaser of the Griffins has compared AA to Kesler on a number of occasions based on his skillset and mentality.  I truly hope he's accurate. 

You just like him cause he's from Michigan. Guy is a D-bag who hates on his hometown team. Can't stand guys like that.

#2622306 Who is better Nyquist or Tatar?

Posted by number9 on 05 August 2015 - 11:05 AM

Realgud points everyone. I've been swayed and forced to change my vote again!


The major difference between Nyquist and Tatar is that Nyquist is a goose, and Tatar is a Mexican water bug.


Now the thing about geese is that some can lay golden eggs, like Gus did during the 13-14 season. However, to lay golden eggs, geese have to be loose. Hence the phrase "loosey goosey". Because geese are not always loose, a goose like Nyquist will be streakier from time to time.


Being a Mexican water bug, Tatar is obviously more lively and quick with the puck. But the main advantage of being a Mexican water bug is that it is a made-up insect that only exists inside the mind of Mickey Redmond. So basically the sky is the limit on Tatar's potential and what he will develop into. Don't ask me why Mickey's made-up bug is Mexican.


I know it's boring nerdy science stuff i got from a spread sheet, but the facts are there. Each has their strengths and weaknesses. 

#2622242 Which prospect will have the best nhl career

Posted by number9 on 04 August 2015 - 12:21 PM


True.  And I would encourage those who don't have an opinion on the matter to refrain from opining.  Which is a heck of a lot more honest than endlessly repeating how great Mantha is, until he isn't, and then going on a on about how great Larkin will be.  If, heaven forbid, he's not that great in the AHL you can bet your ass this same poll will come up a year from now and Svechnikov will be the most common pick.  But that doesn't really say much does it?


Instructions unclear. Louis-Marc Aubry.

I can't believe I'm the only one who voted for Mantha so far

#2622173 Who is the better player Zetterberg or Toews. Prime vs. Present

Posted by number9 on 03 August 2015 - 04:26 PM

Take a look at Toews beard and then take a look at Zetters beard. Does that answer the question?

Case closed
