#2390149 Franzen's a Bargain

Posted by The Greek on 26 April 2013 - 11:09 AM

It's not all stats. When franzen is playing like this, of course he's a bargain. It's just frustrating when he's not producing. We know he can do better. And when he's playing like s***, it just looks like he doesn't care. If franzen makes up for it by doing this every year, he will be forgiven time and time again. But, when he is floating early on in the season, he should expect to get some grief in the court of public opinion.

I'm absolutely ecstatic that he's turning it around. I just think it's a little disingenuous to pretend like he doesn't play like garbage for several games at a time.

Edit: I'm just thinking of all the grief clearly gets because he has no talent. The thing about clearing is that he busts his ass. I think it reflects worse on franzen because he is capable of doing better. He just doesn't try.

For real, there's no comeback to that. Doan bothers the hell out of me, but I have to give him props for doing research. That's how trash talk is done.

Is it just me or did howard mess up big time tonight? There is no consistancy with Howard and if we don't make it to the playoffs, he is the biggest reason, in my opinion. He does good like every other game. That does our team little good.


We are 16-0-2, when we have three or more goals. The guy can't score. I'm sorry, but you're flat out wrong if you blame jimmy for this abomination of a season.

don't get me wrong, he misplayed it for sure
 
I'm just saying he's being asked to do too much
 
and no one ever sticks up for him when the other team runs him


That I won't disagree with. The people freaking out are overreacting. Jimmy has been consistently solid since he struggled early. I won't bury him over a bad goal.

Why you gotta go and point out my blatant inconsistencies?

@RedWingsFeed: Flyers announce that Kent Huskins is out with a concussion: He suffered it... http://t.co/M9RRQOE9SY via @NHLonNBCSports #NHL #RedWings


The little dweeb should be suspended until huskins can play again.

Please God, no.


#2374471 Larry Murphy Fired by FSD

It's still okay to discuss his 100% substantiated hot dog addiction, right?


Indeed. Murph has been quite open about his battle with dollar-dog addiction.

Can we keep the talk about Murphy's alleged alcoholism to a minimum? I know it doesn't really violate any forum rules, and it's just an honest discussion, but we have no indication whatsoever that he has a drinking problem.  For all we know he's a teetotaler.  I'd hate to see LGW become known as the forum that dragged Larry Murphy's name through the mud for no reason whatsoever.
 
I feel like the speculation started out innocently enough, but it's picked up some steam and it's suddenly become no longer speculation.


For real. You would think Murph has had a couple of Mel Gibson moments from the way people around here talk about him. The way I see it is there is nothing that suggests anything other than the fact that murph is just awkward on camera.


#2374390 Wings Make Offer to Danny D!

Posted by The Greek on 26 March 2013 - 01:04 PM


How many of you are gonna cry if he doesn't sign with us?


I'll be bummed, but I'll get over it. Our D prospects are looking pretty good. Most of the pundits have him pegged as a second pairing guy. We have plenty of those already.


#2374359 Wings Make Offer to Danny D!

This is guy is a lifelong Detroit Red Wings fan, born in Michigan and people think he would demand #5? Thats beyond crazy.
 
I really hope the Wings can get this guy, why should he sign with a team that has yet to make playoffs and develop their "big names" the right way?


The #5 thing came out of nowhere, it's complete nonsense. One poster said something along the lines of " I hope he doesn't demand #5 derp derp derp", then people started commenting on it. The whole thing is stupid.

This should provide for a major change in the tone and mood around here. Queue up the "we're one key piece away from winning a cup" threads.

goals like those are what wins you games in the playoffs. bring on the garbage goals i say


Oh hell yes, I'll definitely take them. Hopefully he can start potting them on his own while trying to beat a goalie.
