#2580634 Will Wings Revisit Signing Phaneuf?

Posted by number9 on 10 March 2015 - 09:23 PM

Holland has Green, Franson, and Ehrhoff to look forward to in free agency among others. I'd rather pay a little more for Franson, maybe Green, than spend assets and money on Phaneuf.

 

I think it's pretty apparent Toronto is going to have to eat salary and Weiss's contract f Phaneuf is going to come to Detroit, which probably isn't happening.

Hey, I don't want to sound like I'm ragging on the guy, I think there are plenty people carrying that torch.  What I would say, which is what was expected when he signed his contract, is that it would be way too much money towards the end of the deal.  The guy will struggle to get back and stay on the ice and even if he is able to overcome the injuries and play 82 games a year, he's not going to start producing more, he's going to continue to decline, it's pretty close to fact without being so....it's simply what happens to professional athletes as they age.  Very few guys stick around into their late 30s and beyond and continue to be effective, so it's not like I'm suggesting he'd be an outlier by not coming back and producing a lot of offense.
 
There are examples of guys that seem to defy the odds and continue to produce at older ages (Selanne and Jagr for example), but even with them, their production later in their career was still a far cry from their prime.


His contract was for a great cap hit when he signed it, and for more than a few years after, at his production. The contract was designed to benefit us in the beginning, not the end. I'm sure Holland and co fully expect/ed him to drop off some in his later years like all players do

Alright you guys can no longer claim that you're not trying to make a joke anymore

 

I'm sick and tired of us tankers being treated like a joke. I legitimately want a tank

I'm going on record that these are the kind of jokes that are funny, not the "tank it - we like our team" jokes. Take note LGW jokesters!!

 

TANK IT

My TANK thread will suddenly not be as funny once we're the first team to get eliminated in round 1.......AGAIN

 

Oh did we hurt your feelings? :baby:




#2580262 Franzen on IR

Posted by number9 on 09 March 2015 - 06:29 PM

Last report I saw said he's had 10 concussions in his career. That's a ton. He probably should retire, but it's his call. It also said he might be skating but he's a long way from playing and still has frequent head aches.

 

Link?

 

Based on what? Your expert medical opinion and intimate knowledge of Franzen's injury(s)? The same knowledge/opinion that proclaimed that "he very well could finish his career on IR"?

 

Glad to him at practice after that career ending injury :lol:
