#2450024 11/1 GDT : Red Wings 4 at Flames 3

Whatever you need, but it is time for people to realize that Abdelkader is much more important to this team than many want to acknowledge. You keep fooling yourself thinking he is easily replaced.

 

Any and every time I fantasize about blockbuster Red Wings trades, Abdelkader never really factors in. Not because I don't think any team would want him, but because I wouldn't want to give him up. It's a combination of him being good and the fact that we really don't have another guy like him. He's not one of a kind and sensational; there are other guys like him in the league. Some teams have more than one Abdelkader. But we only have one. So I feel he's very valuable to this team. He's the only guy who consistently mucks it up, gets his nose really dirty, crashes and bangs. And he's been generating chances for us lately, because he does what he does well.

I can't believe how far they've fallen from last season.  Its unbelievable.

 

Holmgren looked like he was crying during his presser.

 

Folks here in Eastern PA are. not. happy.


He manhandled him

 

He really did.

 

Holtby wanted no part of it, but Emery didn't care. Personally, I don't like that, going with a guy who doesn't want to go. Especially when it's a guy who knows how to fight (Emery) and one who doesn't (Holtby). So you win the fight. Congrats, you pounded a guy who doesn't know how to fight and didn't want to fight. Feel better about yourself now? meh

Ozzie likes to beat points to death.

Lashoff has been invisible. In a good way.

It's funny how that happens when you do things "correctly" and "try hard". 

 

What are these things you speak of?

 

Also: we scored three goals!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Coming next, a special on why Franzen is worth every penny of his contract

 

But first, a word from our sponsors:

 

"We like our team."

 

Thanks, Ken!


"You're pale. Pale people look like they'd taste better than tan people. You know, like their meat. Like how the white chicken meat tastes better than the dark chicken meat. "

True story.

 

Kinky.

Bert's pass. Absolutely sick.

 

He may be old, but he's still insanely skilled. Unlike Sammy and Cleary.


Samuelsson

the more I watch this team the more I would be willing to sell my soul for a top-tier puck moving d-man or two

 

though I would settle for Holland selling his soul for one

 

This.

I like Ozzie as a person and (former) player. But as a color guy? Not so much.

@HeleneStJames: Calgary coach Bob Hartley praises #RedWings organization, says product Jiri Hudler is Flames' 'best forward' http://t.co/cHPxcf2f8U

 

I played with someone who played under Hartley for a bit. I remember him saying, "He talks really weird. 'Get your balls out of your mouth, eh.'" Obviously, the way he said it doesn't come through here, but I assure you it was hilarious. Still makes me laugh when I think about it. :lol:




#2449451 Franzen believes hes playing well.

Posted by Dabura on 01 November 2013 - 11:46 AM

I believe Franzen was scratched last game because of his play.  It was kept quiet in the media, claimed as an injury.  But this was a move by Babcock and company to get the Mule going.  Now Zetterberg said he is expecting a better Mule.

 

I like this idea, but I think if we're going to go the it-wasn't-an-injury route, "personal matters" might be a slightly more plausible explanation. Why? Because, as far we know, he didn't travel with the team to Vancouver and wasn't at the game. Isn't it sort of expected that healthy scratches will be there at the game, hanging around the team? Unless they just really wanted to keep this hush-hush and therefore didn't want a healthy-looking Franzen roaming around Rogers Arena, or something like that.

This has been bothering me for a long time, is it just me?  Everytime I come on here I look at his face amongst all the other Wings' greats.  I'm okay with Datsyuk and Zetterberg being there, they are the current faces of the frachise and are worthy....but Franzen, to me, just looks so out of place.

 

Should be Fedorov or Kronwall or Hasek or Ozzie or Howard. Or Hudler.
