and we're mentioning Franzen like he even had an inkling of playing? Why mention him at all? Its not like he has played or will ever play (at least this season) again. He is not just "out" he is done. I am not even sure he even travels with the team anymore, hell he may be "recovering" over in Sweden.
Because he would get the a when others were out.
Which is why he was mentioned.
He may be recovering in a sauna 12 hours a day,and eating nothing but pineapple.
But hell, why even bring that up at all?
REALLY? How has this turned into a bashing Howard thing?! That guy has played his a** off for us this game and he gives up a bad goal on a 5 on 3 and all of a sudden this is all his fault? Grow the eff up. You're blind if you think he's the reason we're tied. God. The Howard hate around here has just gotten to be ridiculous. How about our PP eh?
Ohh boy....do I tell him or does someone else want to?
You have to beat the best to win it all. Doesn't matter who we play. I'd love it if we took on Tampa in the first round, Montreal in the second, Rangers in the CF, and the Blues, Hawks, or Preds in the SCF. If this team's gonna win, let's win in style against the best teams. I don't want a consolation second round exit just because we got stuck with an easy first round matchup.
