Good choice for you.

At this point you are flaming and trying to instigate

#2627454 9/26 Exhibition GDT : Boston Bruins at Red Wings, 7:00 EST

Are you kidding? Jurco was one of the better players in that game against Chicago. He was a huge reason for 2 of the 3 goals that Tatar scored. On the first one he drove the middle, allowing Tatar and Sheahan to cross, and continued to the net, doing exactly what he needs to do for that line. On Tatar's third goal, he dug the puck out of the corner, and gave it to Richards which started the breakout for the eventual empty netter. He also drew two penalties by providing speed and keeping his feet moving. What exactly did Franzen do in his first game to get his opportunity on that line?... I'm not saying he was bad, but Jurco was really good with them, why change it?

Because it is pre season and Blash is new to head coaching some of these guys and he wants to see for himself who has chemistry with who?

Let me reinforce the word preseason and it is considered practice

Franzen was a beast in front of the net back in the day and took a serious beating. He was the last true power forward we had even though he didn't fight which imo doesn't make somebody a power forward

Homer took a beating in front of the next and along the boards more than Franzen

Just wanted to point this out.... Don't know if Franzen can be labeled a power forward

#2623191 Abdelkader entering contract year, possible $4M extension?

Posted by Rivalred on 16 August 2015 - 12:41 PM

So because he is from Michigan he automatically gets to cash in? I love Abby, he plays hard and is versatile, but I don't think he is worth 4 million unless he can string together. Few solid seasons.

Hate to see another bad contract....

I just don't get the mentally on paying someone on their future potential instead of their previous track record.
