For all those who enjoy the management of a hockey team, I'm genuinely surprised their is a bigger community for Eastside Hockey Manager. Especially since its gone on Steam. Obviously it's more complicated than NHL15 but is about 100x more in depth and enjoyable/gratifying. Not to mention it's just $14.99.
Franzen is a waist of a money and a roster spot. If he is in the lineup on opening day, we will be less some good prospects...and we would have wasted our time with our draft picks. To lose any one of these players to keep Franzen here for the next five years will be a waste. What are you going to do when Frk, AA, Mantha, and Larkin are due up, do you still keep Franzen? Franzen needs to go now or lose the likes of AA and Frk for sure. You need to get off this Franzen love, he is done, over, not worth keeping, especially when it comes to losing valuable prospects. He was the wrong choice and he continues to show that he is horrible. Sure, he had the concussion last January, but how do you expain the previous 5 years of floating around and s***ting on the ice? You cannot explain it any other way than he is done, over, washed up. Time to cut ties with him now, either LTIR or trade him. No way is losing ANYONE to cap issues worth keeping Franzen for. If Holland does this, then this franchise is doomed... f*** Franzen
Anyhow, if the WIngs plan on moving forward and not losing young players for nothing or being forced to trade them, there has to be casualties at the NHL level. Q, E, K and Franzen, and maybe Smith are ALL great candidates to move in order to secure the kids arrival the next few seasons...
Soooo you DON'T have a source or anything for this "Franzen was included in Phaneuf trade" non-sense...
If Franzen is healthy he deserves to be on the opening roster. He's been consistent over the years for what his cost is and at most will cost us the risk to waive a Callahan/Ferraro/Andersson.
So for all you guys who are so concerned for Franzen's health...If doctors declare him healthy enough to return and claim he's at no more risk of serious injury than many players in the league...You'll fully support him as a player?
Or are you all just hiding behind a shroud of caring?
