Visors should be mandatory for all players entering the league. They're already use to them. There is not a single valid argument of why they shouldn't be mandatory. Players use to be against helmets, but sometimes you need to protect played from themselves.
Yeah honestly just wanted to see a source for it, hadn't come across one personally and logically considering the Bruin's record I wouldn't think they would have been. Should have been included with the original post to back up the subject of the rumor thread so there's some information to go off of. But the fact still remains and I stand by it, dumping Franzen for a late 1st draft pick is among the last things we need to be focusing on, bringing in one or two more defensemen is.
Regardless thanks for posting up the link DRW93 and giving us some sort of basis to go by to validate the thread. Franzen is back tonight, let's see how the next few games go for our leading scorer from last season.
You're very welcome. I agree, should've had a link in the OP. I also agree that trading Franzen shouldn't be on Kenny's mind. Finding a top-tier, two-way defenseman and a reliable scorer is what should be occupying his time. Shopping Franzen or Filpulla or whatever other nonsense the media had dreamed up would be going straight into seller mode. This is NOT the time to become a seller. There is real talent on this team and they have proven they can win against the best even with a depleted lineup. We own wins against St. Louis, Nashville and Vancouver and have also taken Chicago to OT. This team needs a full, healthy roster and some more firepower both up front and on the back end. Giving up now would be foolish.
God I really miss when ESPN had the NHL broadcasting rights.
I HATE Mike "DRIVE" Emrick and Ed Olczyk with a passion. I want Gary Thorne and Bill Clemente back. :cry:
This is the only thing I've ever seen you post that I disagree with. I like "...a DRIVE...". Like the enthusiasm, especially after having to listen to Major Homers Greg Husum and John Shorty Shorthouse all the time.
I wish I could hit "ignore" on my Yamaha sound system for Olczk, though.
Nice! Brian has definitely earned this with his consistent solid defensive play. And I guess putting the puck in the net a few times doesn't hurt either. Now it's time to sign Brunner to a 5-6 year extension!!

No. I want that too.
You may be the only two then....
Wings belong in the East. Even throwing tradition of the O6 out the window, they are in the Eastern Time Zone and need to be in the East. Plus it will force Holland's hand to adapt this team to a larger type player style of team. Today the best teams are in the East and the Wings need to be with the best teams... I am all for it! Even if it means being in that division that would whoop us around for a bit, but like I said, it'll force Holland to change his team to compete in an Eastern Conference type of game...
We're desperate for a D man like this you gotta give up some good peices to get good peices... Everyone's bitching about having the same team for the last 4 years and this shakes things up... Yandle is a stud and can almost get as much points as a defenseman as flippula gets on the 2nd line
Yeah but is he worth displacing our top 6 and destabilizing our bottom 6?
I'd like to acquire Yandle as much as anyone else but 2 top 6 forwards and a 1st round pick is robbery any way you look at it.
Swap Emmerton or Kindl for Nyquist and I would pull the trigger
As much as I think this guy is an attention seeking, follower hunting joke, I find myself with twitter open...
I've been reading some of his stuff and I feel like yea, he's right sometimes and often before anyone else. But I think he just puts out so many tweets and hopes to be right/ hopes people don't notice when he's wrong. Then again, they are all rumors and it is fun to speculate.. I don't think id trust him 100% of the time but I'll still read his posts at least out of curiosity/boredom haha
