#2517347 The Franzen Hate.

How much of what is happening to him is due to his "mental situation"?  

 

The Wings were guarded about that earlier this season, but something seems to be going on.  Not sure what.

I think this might really be the Sharks' year.

Blasphemy! It's only a matter of time before the meltdown is cued up.

My worry with Weiss is that he's not going to pan out. Then we'd have to find ourselves a 2C, who, given our annual injury woes, would probably have to be capable of holding down the 1C spot for around 20 games, maybe even in the playoffs. Plus, we do need to get bigger, especially down the middle. Weiss is tiny, Legwand is fairly big.

 

But, yes - the blue line is the big thing. God Almighty, the defense.

If legwand wants to stay after being made a 4th liner by babs, and for a reasonable price, i'd definitely keep him. Cant assume Weiss is suddenly going to play at his peak. The guy is still injured and virtually hasn't played in 2 years

I have no problem with Alfie back at a reasonable price. He's taking way too muck flack for what has been a pretty solid year. I don't think we would've made the playoffs without him because he was one of our main leaders down the stretch who wasn't injured. The Cap is going up and I think it's highly likely that we're not going to use all the space up, so if Alfie is willing to stay for a reasonable amount, again, I have no problem with it. We have way, way, way bigger problems than Alfie.

I've thought about it lately, and I think I want Mantha on the team straight out of camp. Let's just go all in with the youth, get them as much time with Z and D and maybe Alfie as possible.

 

I agree about Mantha. Alfie left his career to come to Detroit and win a cup, I think we need for give him another run. However I want to see some major changes in the offseason.

 

And I think Smith played his ass off this series.

Well. I look forward to a long summer of discussion about what the wings should do followed by Holland re-signing old timers.

How ironic. We end with too many men on the ice when all series we haven't had enough men on the ice.

As stupid as that two minute span was, the refs did not cost the Wings this series. A goal or two sure, but they still don't score enough. Sent from my ADR6350 using Tapatalk 2

If we score on this powerplay, we win the series.

It really does suck when you look back on Alfie's career and think that this is how it is going to end. Especially since there was some hope at the beginning of the season of getting it done and winning a cup finally. He definitely looks like a player who should retire though.

 

This is how he should feel about signing with the Wings to get his Cup.

Boston has a Vezina nominee (probably winner) goalie. A Hart, Selke nominee (probably winner) two way forward in Bergeron. A stacked team.

We have an injured goalie, captain, young team and a Franzen.

We were not going to win this series.

The wings are just happy to be here. Winning doesn't seem to be a priority.

 

I would take down the Hockeytown logo from center ice until the team becomes a contender again.

 

Right now, their goal seems to be just continuing the playoff streak.  The streak wasn't just about making the playoffs, it was about being a contender every year.  Mediocrity and Hockeytown shouldn't go together.

We need that mutant rhino from the Advil commercial. That's what we need.

It could explode into pucks and Rask would stop all of them (because the pucks would all be coming from the perimeter and be routine ass saves).
