Ok, here it goes.... The ever on going debate Hossa or Franzen, Franzen or Hossa, which one should we have kept? This series, for me, will end it. Every last one of you no doubt know my opinion of Franzen and the choice I wish Holland would have made...BUT this will end it.
I am putting it out there right now, to all of you, IF either Franzen outscores Hossa this series win or lose OR Wings eliminate the Hawks I will (are you ready?) NEVER bring up the Hossa > Franzen EVER again! I might slip years from now, so if I do you can blast me and remind me of this statement. Doesn't mean I still won't talk about trading Franzen for a player we may need more, BUT again, the Hossa is better than Franzen debate will be OVER when it comes to me! (I can see a lot of you clapping right now! )
If Franzen outscores Hossa (win or lose the series) -OR- if the Wings eliminate the Hawks (even if Hossa outscores Franzen) I will be done with the debate forever.....
If Hossa outscores Franzen and the Hawks eliminate the Wings, nothing will change, it will just be status quo....
(if you want my honest opinion, I obviously hope that I never mention the debate again with a Wings win!)
The ONLY thing that helps and is very therapeutic, is while you are watching the game and when you get that urge to kick your TV in because of Edzo and the NBC Clowns, just log on to LETSGOWINGS.COM, take out your frustrations in the GDT with us, your friends, and get everything off your chest! We are here for you! This is why LETSGOWINGS.COM is the greatest place in cyberspace! (well there is that one porn channel) Ahem...Cough...Cough... Ya, just come here and complain about the NBC crew along with your best Red Wings friends!
only thing that sucks is round 2 starts on Tuesday I believe, quick turn around there
and the Hawks have been resting since Friday I think
oh well, they just gotta suck it up and play
Hey, how many times have the Wings in the past been resting for a week waiting for an opponent then come out flat for the first couple games? Everything points in our favor here when it comes to x-factor's...sure they will be the favs, but we all know all too much, how quickly a giant falls down when overconfident.
Good news is, ya we went 0-4 this year against them, BUT two games were SO loses and one was OT. We play well against Chicago and with our momentum, we will not go down without a fight...I am not going to pick a winner of the series because who knows what will happen now, all I will say is I am going with the Wings until the lose that 4th game....IF they ever lose it!
I hate to say it, but I think I'll throw up if the Wings go into full-on lead protect mode. Too defensively tight, and they're playing not to lose...which I think Anaheim is hoping will happen. Puck possession, puck possession, keep it in their zone, have to keep the Ducks frustrated, on the defense and prone to discipline breakdowns to the very bloody end.
He looked like that because it was the Islanders...plus no one can touch him with drawing a penalty. That is the ONLY thing he has in common with Gretzky and Lemieux....when he gets some Selke talk, then he can be considered anywhere NEAR Yzerman or Fedorov when it comes to complete forwards...
