#2515806 The Franzen Hate.

Posted by The Greek on 25 April 2014 - 01:55 PM

Seems like the majority of the people here enjoy conclusion jumping.
 
I don't like Franzen either. He should be bought out after this season. I'd've said that about Weiss, but I'd sooner have Weiss over Franzen. Johan is a waste of salary and space. I'm just wondering what's with the inconsistencies in opinions I see.
 
"He sucks during the season! He's only good during the playoffs!"
"He sucks during the playoffs! He's only good during the season!"
 
I agree that all that really matters is the Cup, but a lot of people don't realize how stupid they sound. So yes, I agree that Franzen should be off the team, but he's a good reason why the team got to the playoffs in the first place.

What?


#2509529 Poll: Who was the Wings regular season MVP

Posted by Dabura on 14 April 2014 - 11:00 AM

I was really tempted to go with Nyquist (duh) or Zetterberg (duh). But, ultimately, it has to be Kronwall. I don't see how it could be anyone else. He plays the most minutes. He gets the toughest assignments. He's used in all situations. He's first or second on the team in points while being far and away our best, most valuable defenseman and the reason our blue line isn't among the worst in the league. He became The Leader in Z's absence. He only missed a few games. He's adjusted and elevated his game. Through all the ups and downs and injuries and changes, he's been the one great constant.




#2509133 Sproul and Ouellet recalled from Grand Rapids

These two are in for kronner and dekeyser. Bert also in for mule today

 

Because out of everyone, Franzen is the guy that needs the most rest. On a serious note though, maybe Franzen getting a mental health day, helps him relax.

#2383219 Ovechkin Hit?

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 11 April 2013 - 07:20 PM

Lids I don't believe he did. But z and yzerman both did/do. As well as guys like Crosby ovie etc etc.



I get sick of people diving but if the league allows them do to do it why would they stop? Especially when it does sometimes draw penalties.

Strongly disagree.

Yzerman especially.  Diving just was rare back in the day.  But even late in his career I don't remember Stevie diving.  Certainly nowhere near enough to be likened to Crosby and Ovie.  

 

I'm guessing maybe Z has a few times to try and draw a penalty.  But still, we're talking about repeat offenders here.  He still doesn't belong in the same group as captains like Crosby, Ovechkin, Brown, and Sedin.




#2210486 Fabian Brunnstrom

Posted by LeftWinger on 29 September 2011 - 05:51 AM

Brunnstrom: AHL player trying to make any NHL roster.
Hudler: proven NHL player working hard on having a better year because he is disappointed with last season.

You can have Brunnstrom. I'm sure you'll enjoy him. Especially twice on Sunday.

Brunnstrom: Pretty much solidified a spot on the Wings (unfortunate for Mursak.)

Hudler: Now even more expendable and if he doesn't play to his "potential" will be traded or not be re-signed. He WILL be a healthy scratch more times than twice on Sunday, guarantee.

Way to go Fabian!

Good luck Hudler, you're gonna need it!


#2207533 Everyone has rejoined the team for skating...except one player...

Posted by uk_redwing on 14 September 2011 - 09:26 AM

You would think that.

I can't wait for the season to start so the criticism of Hudler can be caused by his play rather than him not showing up for skates.


:rolleyes:

Damn. I posted something hockey related in the hockey section. My bad.

Go troll somewhere else. No bites here.


#2195662 Wings sign D Ian White to 2-year, $5.75m contract

Posted by Cali-Wing-Nut on 03 July 2011 - 01:05 AM

Funny you say this because every single Sharks fan said one of the best things about him is how he plays his hardest every game and stepped up big time in the playoffs. I guess you'd know better though. Guess you forgot he scored on us also.


White was harped on a constant basis in my area of the country... Oh thats right NORTHERN CALIFORNIA.

Hes far from stellar. Like any player he has his moments. Ericcson had his and depending on which article you read hes the best thing since sliced bread. I know better. Our team is literally grabbing up the table scraps after everyone feasted on the good Dmen.

Holland is picking up anyone he can to fill out the roster. Granted a few will be traded off during or after training camp but the fact we havent locked down anyone of signifigance is plain worrying.

The diamond in the rough thing isnt gonna get us a cup this year or next year for that matter. Hell there arent even plans of playing Jurco for at least 2-3 years at the very earliest. That is mind boggling. Maybe thats why we are so streaky in our year to year play, its Hollands decision to actually put some fresh players in. This over ripe thing has me banging my head against ever door, wall and post I can see.

Im praying we have a decent chance next year, cause on paper we are lookin g like half Red Wings half The Replacements.

We havent bolstered our D at all, in fact with our losses we are worse off than last year.

This is going to be so boring because the Yotes have no fans to come in and show us their pictures.

#1926050 this is gonna be fun

Posted by Wings4Life19 on 27 March 2010 - 04:26 AM

Over the past decade at this point in the season the wings would have the division locked up and just fighting for one of the 3 top seeds in the west.

As fans we would be looking at the standings and wondering who the wings would match up best against, who you wouldn't want the wings to play in the first round and so on. But this year its different, they are going to be somewhere between seeds 5-8 and wont have home ice in a series for the first time in a long time. In years past they would be resting guys and getting ready for a long playoff haul, while the lower seeds would be just fighting to make the playoffs.

Detroit had to worry if the team they would face in the first round would be much more prepared for the playoffs because they had been in playoff mode for about a month, while the wings hadn't played a meaningful game in that span. And a couple of times they couldn't match the oppositions energy(2003 VS ANA, 2006 VS EDM)

As Red Wing fans how could you not be excited about the playoffs this year. In 3 weeks when the second season starts the wings "should" be playoff ready, and the teams they will most likely face will have the same if not more challenges than the Wings have had. And for the Wings being a lower seed they wont have the expectations they have had in previous years.

Chicago: Most of their big name players(Kane, Toews, Keith, Seabrook) haven't had the pressure of being the team to beat. If Chi and Det meet in the first round it will be interesting to see if Chicago worries more about beating their big brother or about winning a cup. MY prediction: Det in 7

San Jose: This team has more expectations that anyone in the west. If SJ meets Det in the first round and the wings win you better expect the sharks to clean house over the summer. This is a match-up where the pressure is all on the sharks and Detroit can just play their game and hope the sharks crack under the pressure. My prediction: Det in 6

Vancouver: Of all the teams Detroit could play in the first round I feel Van will be the most interesting. They don't have the offence that Chi or SJ has, but they do have an advantage in goal, and for some reason canadian teams give the wings fits. My prediction: Van in 6

Phoenix: The desert dogs have goaltending and no pressure to win. But what they don't have is playoff experience. Detroit has a history of running into a hot goalie and getting eliminated, Ilya Bryzgalov fits the mold perfectly of being another one of those goalies. And after not winning a playoff series for 2 decades they have nothing to lose. But other than goaltending the wings out match them in everything else. MY prediction: Det in 5
