What upsets me is some of the posts on here that basically criticize Franzen's inability to deal with anxiety.
Whatever is wrong with him I hope he's better soon and as far as mental health issues with athletes, I hope some people grow up and respect that a mental health problem isn't something to mock.
The really baffling thing is that anybody is confused by the decision to sit your number two , oft-injured, goaltender in favour of giving your number one, solid, net minder a game to to get back before the Sharks.
The Wings lost that game for a whole list of reasons and Babs and Jimmy are way down at the very bottom of it.
When Tatar and Nyquist ARE on the roster and getting a good amount of ice time they better be the second and third coming of Datsyuk because these boards are touting them as though their absence is the only thing standing between us and an undefeated season.
I trust our coach and that's the last I have to say about it right now.
This team is beyond pathetic. The only line that is even worth turning the television on to watch is the 1st one. The second line...pathetic, 3rd line ...really pathetic....4th line...what a waste of space all 3 of them are. This roster is shackled with s*** that s*** being Franzen, Cleary who still falls down every 2 seconds, samuelson and Alfie has been awful.
You're a ray of sunshine, aren't you?
I'm not happy that we lost but I'm pretty sure the sky isn't falling.
