#2497229 Franzen calls out team

Posted by Euro_Twins on 19 March 2014 - 09:29 AM

Lets set some things straight.
1. Franzen has not played great all year. He has played like crap fro most of the year. In October he played 12 games and scored 2 goals, both in the same game. In November he played in 10 games-missed 4 while hurt and scored 4 goals. In december he played in 8 games, missed 6 while hurt and scored 3 goals. In january he played 1 game, missed 12 and scored 0 goals. In February he played in 2 games, missed 4 others and scored 3 goals-all in the same game. March he has played in 7 games, missed none and has 3 goals. But again nothing the last 4.
2. Leaders lead, not push. If you want to lead Johan, put the puck in the net! That is how leaders do it.
3. Leaders also don't disappear. I understand that no one scores in every game. But goals scorers do it more than once a month. Your even worse, because when you don't score you stop skating, checking, playing D etc.....


Pro rated over a full year, on pace for 30 goals and 68 points... God why is he so awful. That's definitely not worth his 4 million cap hit.


#2497132 Injury Updates

Posted by Euro_Twins on 18 March 2014 - 09:42 PM

So what the hell is still keeping Datsyuk and Weiss out?


Datsyuk, has a bad knee, he was shut down for 3 weeks following Olympics. Weiss had inflammation where he had his hernia surgery, Zetterberg had back surgery, helm didn't want to miss the star wars marathon, samuelsson is enjoying a warm beach somewhere, jurco was maliciously attacked on ice and suffered broken ribs, Cleary finally gave up, Gustavsson wanted someone to rub down his thighs, I don't even remember the rest of the injuries anymore lol.

if one thing has been made clear with these injuries, it's that tatar/nyquist are not players in the mold of datsyuk/zetterberg - they aren't the guys that are going to carry your team.  they're secondary players.


Ya god forbid those rookies don't carry the team to the cup, better trade them. Not like goose has 17 goals in 40 something games...

It's like the pot calling the kettle black...


You must not have been watching franzen playing this year...


#2494737 Howard = Average

Posted by Euro_Twins on 12 March 2014 - 05:16 AM

As someone who observes and examines alot of goalies and plays goalie, Howard's puck handling is very below average his glove hand is above average, blocker side is well well below average, rebound control at times it's awesome at times it's terrible, his poke check is non existent at this point it really may be below a minor league goalie, again his angles are great at times but also incredibly out of place at times, and finally I feel like his biggest weakness is the second shot he does not move fluidly side to side
I do not mean to put monsters abilities or stats over his but simply put he brings more wins looking at the games monsters rebounds are pushed or kicked pretty far away or covered which allows his unorthadox slide to get in position


Putting wins aside monsters stats are pretty much identical to howies he has not been better, and holy is not a below average minor league goalie...

I'm surprised Petr hasn't because he use to when he was in juniors all the time.

 

probably doesn't want babs to bench him in favour of cleary  :lol:

This. I think the thing people don't get, is alot of us don't hate Howard. In fact, alot of us like him quite a bit. But calling a spade a spade, he's been s*** this season. He has 13 goddamn wins in March. Him getting going is the most important factor in whether we get in or not.

 

I don't think people hate him, they just hate on him quite a bit, Gustavsson has not played any better by any means, people need to realize that, ya howie could play betterfor sure, but people act like Gustavsson is Lundquist, Gus has been as bad or worse then Howie. the wings just scoree more when he is in net, he also plays against lesser competition compared to howie


His win stats say otherwise.

 

lol his ctual stats don't, the only reason he has won more, as has been pointed out, is because we score more when gus is in net, all other stats are basically the same

guy let in one goal....and it was ericsson's fault..

 

right, but if howie was in net, it would be what was howarddoing, terrible call, put gus in. I like Mrazek, and it wasn't his fault, but for some reason people around here hate on howie worse then franzen

It seems your bunghole is only in a good mood when pp pucks are being stuffed in it

Listening to nbc announcers is like arguing with a two year old, you know they don't know what they are talking about, and you know it shouldn't bother you, but for some reason you so desperately want to convince them of the truth.

So, what's the difference between a good hard hit and interference?


Detroit and Chicago lol

Hard to do when you get injured every time you make a start. Plus, he gave up four last game anyways. This defense is horrendous. Lashoff and Smith were just spectating on the goal.


Don't bother. Howard can give up two goals and be terrible, monster gives up 4 and should be our starter.
