#2676616 Wings acquire SJ prospect Dylan Sadowy

Posted by F.Michael on 26 May 2016 - 07:17 PM

 

UPDATE: The #RedWings have acquired prospect Dylan Sadowy from San Jose for a third-round draft pick in 2017.

 

 


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!

The idea of our beloved Detroit Red Wings adding some players who play with an edge makes my head woozy with delight.


Right. Cause we've NEVER had that type of player on the wings

Years ago we did, but in the last several years - not so much.

Wow. I can't believe Ericsson has never learned this fact. How the heck does he have a spot on this team when he lacks this basic knowledge of physics? Buy him out already.

Hey man, I'm just offering my opinion. No reason to be child like, come back when you wanna act like an adult...

Today I learned LGW knows more about concussions and Franzen's personal health issues than he himself does.


My best friend had to quit hockey his sophomore year of high school hockey because of so many concussions. I've had a couple also so I know a decent amount about them.

Please retire Mule. For your family and your own health retire.

It's just not worth it big man time to hang up the skates and hope he can have a normal life.

Not sure how many posters we have old enough to have attended a game there.  If only GordieSid&Ted didn't get banned.

I really feel bad for him, I was actually excited to see how he does this season, I was optimistic. He seemed really energized to play in the few games he was in. He shouldn't play again until he goes a few months without symptoms instead of just a couple weeks.

The prognosis looks terrible.

 

First it was big hits and he would be out weeks.

 

Then it was big hits and he would be out month or two

 

Then it was minor hit and he was out for half a year.

 

Now he plays two games - no major impact and he's out on IR. (short term it seems like)

 

Am I the only one noticing this trend?? 


Supposedly earlier last month he mentioned that the doctors said his situation won't get worse than it is (physically)

Did you pay attention when Franzen said retirement was something he wasn't considering?

 

So because his symptoms are back and he's being placed on IR as a precaution, he's absolutely donzo? Please, he will sit until his symptoms are gone again, and then he will play. I remember when Crosby was going through this same thing.

 

People are acting like he got rocked with concussion #1000 or something lol that's not the case

 

I didn't say he was for sure done but it doesn't look good. Franzen has been very stubborn throughout this whole concussion ordeal. The thing with these head injuries is its totally on the person who's having  them to call the shots, theres no way of a doctor telling if he can or can't play because theres only "symptoms"

 

If he just sat out (8 months?) and comes back for 2 games and doesn't even get hit and hes facing symptoms again, what's going to happen when he actually gets hit in the fastest game in the world?

 

Pronger's and Savard's symptoms never went away and it doesn't seem like Mule's will either. These things just tend to get worse...

jfranzen - He ain't dead, wear that jersey with pride! Johan gave his all to this team when he could, he was probably 3rd runner up to the Smythe Trophy in 08 and tried his best thus far this season.  He may make it back, but he will stay away until he knows its right.  He probably rushed it a bit this time, considering that doctors had said he wasn't 100% good, but could give it a go.  Next time I bet he waits for docs to give him the 100% A OK to go, if that comes, then cool, it helps the team, if that day never comes, then fine, that also helps the team and saves him from worsening his head issues...

Franzen also said in an interview that if he gets his symptons back, he feels that could be a career for him.  Precautionary is good though.  Like I said, he actually looked like he belonged out there, he definitely did not hurt the team, he wasn't floating and had some good scoring chances.  BUT if his symptoms come back from just over exertion, can you imagine what will happen if he gets rocked one night? He is a smart person, he will stay away until he feels the same as he did at the end of summer, for his sake, lets hope it doesn't take another 6 months, or he could very well, be done.

 

 

on a side note, I am sure glad I didn't start or name this thread! :lol: I'd be getting destroyed right now! (rightly so, I might add! I would deserve it!)

Well at least the NHL set the precedence already with Pronger.  If needed, Franzen could go on LTIR, still get his money from his contract PLUS take a job within the organization and get paid, right? Good for one, good for all?

I would rather Franzen stay off then end up with something worse shape then he is now. The smartest thing anyone could do is not let him get back on the ice period. After all the issues he has

had functioning daily and having to sit out from his kids. Just a bad move if anyone lets him continue on as a player in the NHL. I hope he can fill an office job or be a key person to the organization of the Detroit Red Wings and contribute that way. It's sad he won't be around anymore but man we had some amazing years with him and got to see the Mule be a key player.

Why is this it for him? He didn't sustain another concussion. I assume he'll be lacing them up as soon as his concussion symptoms are gone again. That could be sooner, rather than later. He's on regular IR.

 

Have you been paying attention to concussions for the past 10 years? 

 

He missed 1/3 of last season from symptoms (from a tap to the chin) and complained of symptoms all off season

 

Came back for 2 games (with seemingly minimal contact) and hes out again. It does NOT look good for mule.

Yeah, that's too bad. He did look pretty good out there - especially for a player who hadn't played in about 6 months. From the reports in camp/preseason when he said he was still having problems with his head after extreme exertion, it seemed like he might have that after the exertion of a full game. I didn't see him get hit and I think this is likely those symptoms that have never gone away and come back with physical activity.
