In Topic: Franzen back on ice

Another concussion, likely to be inevitable, will be bad news for Franzen. Also the fact that I'm not sure how much better off the team will be if he comes back makes it a tough situation.

My position is let's see what happens.

In Topic: Line combos for 97, 98 Cups?

I remember McCarty having some hidden talent that would pop up out of no where in games. I also remember reading he had crazy raw talent and could have been much better had he worked on his game and not been so distracted.

I am pretty sure the people who remember McCarty's play would take him over Abby. I would.

I like it.

Wasn't he acquired with our pick anyway?

In Topic: The Bowman Effect

I'd never knock the hockey genius of Scottie Bowman. However, once you've developed a reputation as a winner, you end up choosing who you work for rather than developing teams from scratch. I think it's unlikely that Bowman was the factor that brought 3 cups to Chicago. Rather, it's more likely he had the hockey mind to see the potential of the team years in advance.

 

I think successful coaches, GMs, and other personnel in professional sports have a tendency to snowball on their own success. Their padded resume allows them to work with future winners more often.


In Topic: Wings open to trading Mantha and/or their 1st Round Pick

I can start rumors too. Mine will probably be more true: Holland will do nothing all summer. You heard it here first, folks.
