#2623659 Franzen back on ice

Posted by Euro_Twins on 21 August 2015 - 04:31 AM

...but no, he will play, take a roster spot from a more deserving player, we will lose said player to waivers then Franzen will go back on LTIR shortly after Dats returns and we lose another player to waivers. But that's ok, when 2008 Franzen gets back this year, we won't miss ANY player that may be lost for free, not even that 14th forward Pulkkinen...
But ya, Franzen is healthy and will be on the opening day roster....yippee.
just remember my words when I said that he will cause us to lose players for the next 5 years just so he can "try" to play hockey....but he is so totally worth it and we won't miss ANY player lost...right?

If someone picks up andersson off waivers I won't pose any sleep

This has nothing to do with Franzen as a player, but I just can't root for the guy trying to return to the NHL when you read things like this:

Earlier in the summer, Franzen allowed that he’s uncertain as to the number of concussions he’s suffered during his NHL career, only able to note that it’s been “more” than three or four.

“This time was scary,” Franzen admitted the last time he spoke about it publicly. “This time was a little bit scarier. You go for two months not being able to pick up your kids or play with your kids for more than two minutes. It makes you think a little bit.

“I was in a really dark place - maybe not the first month because you think it’s going to get better - but then when it doesn’t get better, you start wondering.”

Didn't Jarret Stoll just get busted for cocaine in LA?

Actually he was arrested in Las Vegas :lol: but I agree with your overall argument

#2623201 Red Wings Sign D Robbie Russo

Posted by T.Low on 16 August 2015 - 03:13 PM

Article from Chicago area regarding Russo

"Unlike Hawks prospect Ryan Hartman, a West Dundee, Ill. native, and Hawks backup goaltender Scott Darling, a Lemont, Ill. native, Russo did not grow up a Hawks fan despite the proximity to the team. Russo was a Red Wings fan growing up, according to Second City Hockey staff writer Ryan Hood, who attended high school with him for two years."

#2622898 Franzen's Gift to Nyquist

Posted by 55fan on 11 August 2015 - 05:17 PM

Ok, boys.  Keep the shifts short, and don't get caught with too many men.  If anyone goes to the box, he needs to be ready to shoot as soon as he gets out.  Defend your end at all times.  Scoring is important, but you can't score unless you make a play first.  No clutching and grabbing, just shoot all over their end. 


Hurry up and get here, October.

#2622877 Franzen's Gift to Nyquist

Posted by kipwinger on 11 August 2015 - 03:07 PM

People all over the internet keep saying "I want these sheets!".  They're nuts.  Who the hell wants Mike Babcock's disapproving glare watching over everything they do in bed?  You can almost see him thinking "Luke Glendening works harder than that" whenever you're making love to your partner. 


Screw that. 

#2622416 Who is better Nyquist or Tatar?

Posted by amato on 06 August 2015 - 12:20 PM

It's situational.. Nyquist is better if you have a cold and Tatar is better if you are eating a nice fish dinner.

....I'll see myself out.. :P

#2622306 Who is better Nyquist or Tatar?

Posted by number9 on 05 August 2015 - 11:05 AM

Realgud points everyone. I've been swayed and forced to change my vote again!


The major difference between Nyquist and Tatar is that Nyquist is a goose, and Tatar is a Mexican water bug.


Now the thing about geese is that some can lay golden eggs, like Gus did during the 13-14 season. However, to lay golden eggs, geese have to be loose. Hence the phrase "loosey goosey". Because geese are not always loose, a goose like Nyquist will be streakier from time to time.


Being a Mexican water bug, Tatar is obviously more lively and quick with the puck. But the main advantage of being a Mexican water bug is that it is a made-up insect that only exists inside the mind of Mickey Redmond. So basically the sky is the limit on Tatar's potential and what he will develop into. Don't ask me why Mickey's made-up bug is Mexican.


I know it's boring nerdy science stuff i got from a spread sheet, but the facts are there. Each has their strengths and weaknesses.

I deleted my vote for Tatar then voted for Tatar so I could feel the satisfaction of making the right choice again.

I agree completely. Screw the Rangers. 


As far as Stepan goes, it's really not too much of a gamble though.  Even if he never improves, you're still getting a 50 point, top six center, who plays great defense, for the prime of his career.  And you'd only be paying him about a million more than his actual value if he never improved at all.  A 50 pt. guy, at Stepan's age, is generally worth 5.5 on today's market, so it's a mild overpayment if does doesn't improve, and a quality contract if he does.  It's not like they're paying for potential here, he's already a very good player, they're just overpaying slightly under the assumption that he'll take the next step. 


I'm always happy to slightly overpay for a good player, rather than slightly overpay for an unproven guy.  The risk seems less.
