Frankenfritter!!!


#2568403 Do we need a trade to get our offence going ?

Posted by Euro_Twins on 04 February 2015 - 09:20 PM

I don't think Kenny's going to do anything.


Probably not. But it's fun to pretend.

First pair dmen go for 7+ million now. So I don't understand how 5.5 is too much for a second pair guy? Now I would much prefer Mike green, but I'll take franson if that's what has to happen

Is franson a first pairing nhl defensemen?? I think the fact that you mentioned above he's a 2nd pairing dman and would do the same here that you agree with me that no he is not


Should 2nd pairing defensemen be getting 5-6yr deals for 5.5 per ? For me it's an obvious no which means no thanks to franson longterm


Umm... kronwall was a 2nd pairing dman when he got his current front loaded long term deal with a much smaller cap. So 5.5 per for a 2nd pair guy now seams pretty par for the course. Or is it that were the wings so everyone should be paid way less to play here?


#2568070 2015 Draft

Report: Red Wings, Kings, Predators among teams interested in Cody Franson

#2568061 Jimmy Howard.......All-Star!

Posted by Euro_Twins on 03 February 2015 - 06:45 PM

"@AnsarKhanMLive: Howard left midway through practice. Appears to still be at least a week away from returning."

I really like how mraz has been good enough for Jimmy to take his time getting healthy rather than hurrying back.


"Good enough" maybe in two games. The rest of them the wings had to put score mrazek's mistakes. Sure we've won quite a bit but I for one can't wait for our number one to get back.

He should have traded Franzen for Legwand. Franzen is useless and Legwand was a rental, and not a great one, so that would have worked out well and opened up some cap room. But I have a s***ty feeling that if Franzen went to another team he'd instantly turn into a 40-50 goal scorer. lol


Franzen legwand and goose was a giant part of our making the playoffs last year

He's also a backup that only needs to be around 20-30 games a year, if that with a workhorse like Howard. And like Colo is a much smaller cap percentage than green would be.

You can't compare a guy like that to Green.


I didn't. You specifically said monster didn't have a terrible injury rep when he signed with us, which was false. The first time he signed here he was already well known for his untimely "groin injuries"

I'll call it now. We will make the conference finals. After that it's anyone's guess. I have lost all faith in Holland being able to trade or sign free agents. But he has done a wonderful job drafting and developing

I was even going to include "Don't be blinded by stats" into my post. There isn't a GM in the league that would choose Green over Yandle. Green has played for the high scoring Capitals his whole career compared to the defensive minded Coyotes. getting stats like that playing with guys like Ovechkin and Semin in their prime to umm Doan...Whitney for 1 year? Iron man defensemen compared to injury prone defensemen is huge factor for me too

.
we do not need to overpay for another lefty. We have boatloads. We need a guy like green.

Oh wait what about goals you ask? Green scored 31, while yandle's highest is 12. They are both the same height almost the same weight, but green shoots right and yandle shoots left.

To me it sounds like green would be the better fit. But hey apparently yandle has more talent.

Don't get me wrong I would love to get yandle, but

A: he would cost way too much
B: green fills a big need (and is clearly better, but has had more injuries)
C: GREEN IS BETTER

Yandle has missed like 6 games his whole career compared to umm Green... There's a reason Yandle is way more desired than Green, he is much more talented, plain and simple


How exactly is he much more talented?

Yandle:
Games played: 544
Career points: 302
highest point total: -59 points
highest assists: 48
career +/-: -25
Pim: 368
Current points: 32 in 49 games

Green:
games played: 544
Career points: 344
Highest point total: 76
Highest assists: 57
Career +/-: +50
Pim: 398
current points: 29 in 41 games

Well I guess those 30 less career pim make yandle way more talented....


#2567679 What should we do with the Monster?

Posted by Euro_Twins on 01 February 2015 - 01:43 PM

@petewallner: Jonas Gustavsson said he will play w Griffins Wednesday in Toronto and then, likely, catch plane to join #Wings in Colorado. #Gogrg


I hope he doesn't pull his groin trying to catch that plane.


#2567677 Marchenko recalled from GR... Ouellet sent down

Posted by Euro_Twins on 01 February 2015 - 01:30 PM

@petewallner: Xavier Ouellet thought he would remain with #Wings, deals w 'challenge' of return to Griffins. #gogrg. http://t.co/PuuxklWKlZ


He can suck it up like Tatar and goose had to. He will be back, but for the time being he was able to be sent down without being waived. It was the most logical move.


#2567660 Larkin or Mantha?

Posted by Euro_Twins on 01 February 2015 - 11:11 AM

They might not be there to see Larkin...
