#2623850 Franzen back on ice

Posted by number9 on 25 August 2015 - 09:43 AM

Fair enough. Sometimes it seems like you wax it a little when you talk about Franzen and Howard, just to annoy Leftwinger and a few others. :lol:

I won't say I don't get over the top a little sometimes, I do. But I'd argue they're baiting when they say Howard is garbage and Franzens a woman. Franzen and Howard, while not perfect like Zberg and Dats, are both fantastic hockey players.

#2622208 Which prospect will have the best nhl career

Posted by amato on 04 August 2015 - 05:37 AM

Too early to say anything about Svechnikov, though I do feel good about his future. Mantha has all the tools to be a top sniper - but the golden boys of the NHL are your 1Cs, 1Ds, and 1Gs. I believe Larkin will be a 1C, or, at the very least, a damn good 2C. This is a franchise player. This is Zetterberg's successor.
In Larkin, we basically drafted a top-five talent at 15th overall. He's the kind of kid a team tanks an entire season for.

So #tankit2013/14 was a success? :P

#2621427 Wings lose scout to leafs

Hey I'm glad Babcock and his minions are gone


I'm so glad that I'm willing to call that number for the Delhi call girls.   :lol:

Next is Helene St. James to move on and start writing about Babcock and the Leafs.

#2621380 Pulkkinen re-signs.... 1 year deal

Posted by FlashyG on 23 July 2015 - 10:44 PM

There is nothing wrong with that, but some people are acting like he's some kind of goal scoring God who will score 40+ a year and anyone who disagrees is a hater.


Negativity and Pulkamania, 2 things that don't go together brother.




NHL...Whatcha gonna do when the Pulkster runs wild on you?

#2621292 Pulkkinen re-signs.... 1 year deal

I feel like nyquististhefuture, LeftWinger and MrazekFanBoy are all the same person

#2621211 Remaing RFAs to be signed - Jurco, Pulkkinen, Aubry

Stats don't tell the whole story. Tatar and Nyquist can drive the play. Pulkkinen doesn't.

I don't care if he can drive the play.  We've got enough playmakers.  We need finishers. 

I'm hoping to see if Pulkkinen translate his AHL goal-scoring talents into the NHL level.


EDIT: Same reason I want Franzen on the ice, if he's healthy and effective.

#2620634 Johnny Oduya signs with Stars 2 yrs $3.75 AAV

Posted by kipwinger on 15 July 2015 - 12:42 PM

Oduya isn't better than Ericsson OR Quincey.  He's very comparable to both though.  Signing him and shipping one of those guys out is just shuffling deck chairs.

Posted by marcaractac on 15 July 2015 - 12:42 PM

Nill does it again

2 yrs at 3.75 per

Could of been a good deal for the wings , and a short term as well.







As someone who gets upset every time Holland trades a prospect, why exactly do you think this would have been a good deal for the Wings? You realize it would mean trading away kids, right?

We have no cap space.

Or a roster spot. ...but you know.  We could have.

Every time Jim Nill does anything I think wow, he's one of the smartest GMs in the NHL, and then I go "oh, right the Jason Spezza contract".




...and that Hemsky contract.  ...and that Lehtonen contract.

Not taking a dig at holland ... Just praising Nill , he's done a great job since he went to dallas


He's made moves sure, but they haven't paid off yet.

For anyone interested, I started a blog to follow the construction progress of the new arena, via my drone.

Seems to me at this point that Franzen will be ready to start on the roster this fall. So all you "I hate Franzen, but feel bad for his booboos" sell outs better be ready for my pro-Franzen sh**-storm.


You turned on him and now this is what you get
