#2469858 1/1 Winter Classic 2014 GDT: Maple Leafs 3, Red Wings 2 (F/SO)

No, it's because he is the chosen whipping boy and people will find a reason to bash him no matter what.

No, it's cause Dats gave him a beauty pass from the corner and he couldn't bury it, Nyquist gave him a nice pass from behind the net and he whiffed on it cause he was leaning on his stick to avoid falling as usual and then the stretch pass from DeKeyser where he couldn't bury it cause Bernier knew he'd go 5 hole cause he can't raise the puck.  It's not very hard to find examples of his suck.  He shouldn't have been signed in the first place to have as a whipping boy.

I haven't seen anything from Shehan that's been impressive but I honestly haven't seen him much. Hope he can give a good impression. 


Detroit Griffins next game, huh?

Does anyone else think Don Cherry is significantly retarded?

Should have been an easy two points.  Mule was the best player out there.  That in and of itself says a lot, and it is not good.

Why be tasteless?


Dan Cleary is the only completely blameless person in this pathetic display.  


I do not disagree, but every point Cleary is able to scrap together is justification for his resigning.  I fully realize thinking like this is simply spiteful, but his ass clogging the roster is inexcusable with how many talented, young guys are trapped in Grand Rapids.  

It is one thing to protect veterans like Chelios and Lidstrom, who work day in and day out, giving 100%, and making smart plays.  It is a totally different situation with an average player who continued to show declining skill, careless play, and lazy skating.

That's why you blame Cleary. It spiteful and disgusting, but he is the face of a broader management problem which does not recognize the "old" and "veteran" are completely different things.

I like to think of jesus in a tuxedo t-shirt, cuz it says im formal, but I'm here to party.


Nah, Jesus is wearing #13 and wearing the winged wheel. Tonight he's going to walk on water 

#2449435 Franzen believes hes playing well.

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 01 November 2013 - 11:01 AM

If Franzen really thinks he's only had two good chances then he truly isn't a goal scorer because he doesn't understand what a good chance actually is.
Which would be all fine and good except his contract is terrible and it was given to him in great part because of his goal scoring.  And yes, I know the cap hit is low but that's like buying a $100,000 car and saying the payments are low because you financed it for 11 years.  They didn't give him $43 million because he's a solid two way forward who can chip in a few goals.  They gave it to the guy who put up 59 points and had 23 points in the postseason.
Kenny Holland at the time of the contract:

"His production over the past year and a half, both regular season and playoffs, has been remarkable and we feel, at 29 years old, that he is just now entering the prime of his career," said general manager Ken Holland.




The reality is Franzen's best years were apparently all ready behind him.

Samuelsson in for Franzen?

Why why why why why why why why why does Babs have such a raging hard-on for Cleary and Samuelsson?

Crosby would still be in the minors had he been drafted by the Wings.

No, he would be on the third line, assigned to a defensive-forward role. Meanwhile, cleary would be on the top line with pav and z.

Babs made a good point: 26 is about the age when players tend to really come into their own. Or did he say 34? Can't remember.

Crosby would still be in the minors had he been drafted by the Wings.

This would be more acceptable if Franzen was decent at other areas of hockey. That isn't the case at all.

He should be looking to score goals. That's what the Red Wings are paying him to do for the next 35 years of that contract.

Wow.  Bum.  And now the primary Compliance Buyout candidate next summer unless he proves he actually cares enough about his job to actually do it.

Posted by HelmFan on 01 September 2013 - 11:09 AM

WTF!! if you're not a goal scorer, then what are you?


he's not a skater, he's not a checker, he's not a grinder, he's not a set-up man, he's not a net front man.


Now he's telling us that he's not going to score goals. He's a big lazy ***** who got his payday. that's it. 


What a waste.  I can't imagine he will be in the top 6 much longer.  It won't be long before Nyquist or Tatar takes his spot.


and you know what? Franzen won't care. He'll be happy that he gets less ice time.


lazy,lazy,lazy.  So much potential. such a frustrating waste.
