#2542848 Franzen to 7-day IR

Posted by Praying Mantha on 21 October 2014 - 01:34 PM

Okay, you know a thread has gone astray when you don't even know what the actual topic is without looking at the title again.  Let's get back to that, shall we?

Franzen needs to toughen up. Too many injuries for a guy of his stature. "Franzen is in great shape" all preseason. For what? A croquet match? He gets a bruise and he's out of the lineup. Its disturbing.

:lol: Hockeytown, I see what you did there!
Praying Mantha, the whole point of "our" GDT is to enjoy the creative genius of the few guys that put all the effort into it.  We appreciate the link to "all the data we need" but its just not the same.  It's also not a race to see who can get the GDT thread up first.  Again, it's well worth the wait to enjoy the creative efforts of the "regular's." No offense, but do you see what I am saying?
That being said, I hope Dats is 100% and doesn't reinjure his shoulder! Lets go Wings!

Totally! No one had signed up, so I made a point in the Datsyuk thread to just delete my post if someone comes up with something wicked. I am in total awe and respect of Flashy G, Hockeytown, and others' Game Day Threads. I just put something up cuz it looked as if no one else was going to. No disrespect to you or anyone else. Just a noon here who likes to talk a little wings hockey!

another quick word on Glenny. His emergence along with Sheahan's would allow us to offer Helm in a deal for something we need. While Helm still has value. This team doesn't need all three, especially when Dats comes back to take up another center spot. Nothing personal against Helm...


Yeah right  :glare:

Another soliddddddddddd game by Glendenning.
Anyone else willing to admit babs was right about that little spark plug?

And please.
No jokes or puns because I used the word plug.
Because dude is legit one of the best fourth line centers around.

I kept saying it two years ago but we should have traded Helm before people figured out he was just a smaller more injury prone Kris Draper.

Keeping the streak alive and hopefully watching Mantha debut is enough for me. Tank job? No thanks!

don't know how much longer people will be sold by E. I've been calling him a farce for a while now. I still maintain this team wouldn't miss a beat if he were gone. Q, K and E...three guys who wouldn't be missed.

As much crap as KFQ takes, he has actually been pretty solid lately. Big Rig however has been hot garbage.

Why split Dekeyser and Smith? If anyone should be demoted it is Ericsson.

#2540247 10/11/14 GDT: Game 2 | Ducks 3 @ Red Wings 2

I got all caught up in the non-call, but in the replay Ericsson's blunder is the worst. He just stands there, and at the VERY end makes a slight effort to start skating... then kind of stops again. He easily could have gotten in there and prevented a decent shot if he just took a couple steps forward. He wasn't even in position to protect a pass really. Not sure what he was doing out there.

For the most part, I think it was the right play. He was covering the right side of the net in case Getzlaf passed to Kesler. If the pass goes through, Ericsson is in good position to block the shot, especially if you add in a push-off from the crease to cut down the angle. Kesler wasn't that far off the post so it wouldn't take more than one good stride/push to get up into Kesler's grill. This is also why Ericsson was on the right side of the net, and not situated between Getzlaf and Kesler like a typical two-on-one would be.
At the same time, Ericsson needs to respect Getzlaf, which is also why he played the two-on-one so close to Jimmy. Getzlaf had half the crease/net to work with before he's in Ericsson's reach. If Ericsson commits any more to Kesler, Getzlaf has even more space, which is a no-no.
The one thing I would have liked to see is Ericsson close Getzlaf into his side of the ice by diving out on top of the crease as Getzlaf approached. At that point, cutting the top of the crease off would have effectively prevented any pass attempts cuz Getzlaf is already in so tight, but it would also cut down Getzlaf's space even more. He'd still get a point-blank shot off, but that space over Jimmy's shoulder would have been a smaller target.
