Singling out Franzen is as stupid as it gets right now. The whole team, with the notable exception of our goalies, sucks right now. Sure, Franzen should bring more to the table but Nyquist, Zetterberg, Tatar, Smith etc. (you name them) should do too.
And we all know Mule floats some time of the year. Every player does from time to time except the super stars. Nothing unusual here, especially if you take his caphit into account.
4-4 here second intermission. I did have a dram of Macallan 18 comped to me by the restaurant owner (I''ve been a regular for 5 years). What's the quick recap?
First period was so-so, nice goal from Z and a somewhat unlucky goal against us. Islanders coming strong in the second but Mrazek with a few great saves. Howard out with an injury (precautionary). And before I forget : Happy birthday Scott.
With inflation running high as hell there won't be much profit from other sources like Ad-Revenue tickets or merchandise either. Who buys tickets to a hockeygame when you are struggling paying for basic things like rent and food ?
Am I the only one who thinks that a.) the sample size is much to small to have reliable stats and b.) that shootouts are more or less coin flips and therefore the whole discussion about how Howard or the team sucks in shootouts is pretty much pointless ?
