I watched him his entire OHL career here in Saginaw (until he was traded half way through the season last year, which is typical in the OHL), and Wings fans should be excited. I'd argue he's a little tougher version of Abdelkader with a better scoring touch. He was always the first one to jump in & defend his teammates. Was a good captain here. Great pick-up!
That means we will probably never see him in a wings lineup
I love Ovie because he's really good, and he doesn't care about playing hockey the Canadian way. Which drives people NUTS. Take the hatred that most people felt for Subban (prior to his big money donation) and multiply that by 100 and you'll only just approach the amount of shade cast on Alex Ovechkin from the Canadian faithful. Love it.
I agree. He is definitely not the typical Canadian star. He has a lot of attitude.
Don't see how he was doing anything but giving his opinion. Calling someone like a 5 year old is the only thing off in this discussion. It's unfortunate that Franzen discussions always go this way. We even did better with the rape discussion, haha.
Anyway, we don't know what this means besides the fact that he's only on IR not LTIR. We'll see if it's just a precautionary short term thing on the path of him coming back or maybe he was concussed again or whatever.
