#2543408 Franzen to 7-day IR

Posted by Mckinley25 on Yesterday, 02:08 PM

I don't understand your point. What's wrong with trade/waive/sit 4th liners when they provide nothing offensively?

Not saying I agree with it. But when the offense is one of the worst in the league shouldn't we be adding a goal scorer or two?


Yes but not by replacing a 4th liner.

Looking forward to Franzen coming back.  It'll help our offense.

 

Don't really understand a lot of the thoughts in this thread...

 

PK/GA is near top of the league and PP/GF is near bottom = trade/waive/sit the 4th line penalty killers!

 

Yeah ok....

I think Abby gets the first goal- Dats will use him as a human deflection.

Subban takes a selfish penalty or two and Datsyuk leads the PP to cash in. The Zetterbeard stays in beast mode. Wings win 4-2.

Lol most accurate post in here.


Right?! Girls are inferior! Crosby's a whiner so let's call him Cindy! Guys club!

Seriously though, it sucks but we actually have some depth right now.

Well-deserved.  The greatest ever*.

 

*This statement is my opinion.  You may have your own, to which you are entitled, but this thread is about Dom.  Perhaps there will be a goalie thread someday in which we can discuss other goalies.  This would be lovely as there have been other good ones around Dom's level.

I like this line up, but I'd prefer our youngsters over Miller and Andersson. Nesty and Jurco are faster and have more goal scoring ability.

But miller and Andy are huge reasons that our pk is perfect.

And the fourth line has been amazing.
I'd much rather see Jurco here, but in all honesty, more time in gr could do wonders for him.
I think they'll have to waive cleary, because something tells me someone would claim nestrasil.
At least, I hope they'd waive cleary.
Nestrasils not great, but he's muchhh better than danny, and he's only going to get better.
I'd hate to lose him for nothing.
He's made some mistakes, but he's big, strong, decently fast, heavy on the puck, and he's really good along the boards.

What about Abby?

 

When Dats comes back, I bet you will see Jurco move back down to Grand Rapids.

The only thing thats awesome about not having a spot for Weiss is that it means we are 1 more spot removed from having a spot for Cleary. In short, we are healthy.

Zetterberg-Datsyuk-Mantha
Nyquist-Weiss-Franzen
Tatar-Sheahan-Jurco
Helm-Glendening-Nestrasil
Miller/Andersson

Kronwall-Smith
DeKeyser-Quincey
Ericsson-Kindl
Lashoff

Howard
Gustavsson


That's probably the optimal line-up when everyone is healthy. The Cleary signing is so stupid. Why not just give him 2.5 million to be cheerleader? He's an albatross right now.

 

What about Abby?

Even just 5 games in, it's getting tough for me to see where Weiss is going to slip into the line-up, barring any injuries. 1st and 4th lines are performing very well, The Kid line just looks snakebitten, but they're getting chances. 3rd line could use a boost, at times. Nestrasil shows flashes on one play, then shows some growing pains the next, IMO. I wonder about Helm's health... he seems a step off to me right now. Really, once Datsyuk gets back, I have no idea where and when Weiss gets to jump in.

Having Joker as the 4th line RW has allowed him to slot into C on the 2nd PK unit, which as a whole, has been fantastic. I had very low expectations for Andersson, but I have to admit, he looks much faster and is doing some solid work on the 4th line and PK.

Couldn't watch the game but for sure happy watching these and hearing that the kids are doing fine. Watching Tatar, Nyquist and Sheahan and their speed is really nice. If we could just surround them with a gritty, tough as nails fourth line the Wings would become a very hard team to play against.
 
also lol @ Lupul for throwing Leafs fans under the bus who the hell he thinks he is ? Leafs fans are paying by far the highest ticket prices in the NHL and their reward is millionaires not working hard and then throwing fans under the bus ? wow maybe he should worry about his game and not giving interviews like a wannabe GM.

I know you're looking specifically for an Aaron Downey type, but truth be told our fourth line was probably already the toughest line for the Leafs to play against last night. I can recall one shift specifically against the Leafs top line where Glendening, Miller, and Andersson had the Leafs chasing in their own zone for a good 30-40 seconds, and generated a couple solid scoring chances as well.

Scoring in OT counts as a win in regulation correct?

 

It is a ROW win, yes
