In Topic: Franzen to 7-day IR

Yesterday, 03:26 PM

I think after last years debacle, the Wings are being cautious here, and rightfully so, especially with Franzen off to such a good start. 

 

Also, it delays the inevitable roster crunch decision for a little while longer - gives Nestrasil a few more games to hopefully impress. IMO they need to waive Cleary and send him down to GR rather than the easy way out (which would be to send Jurco back to GR)

 

Agreed about Franzen.  It still would have made WAY more sense to give Cleary a contract after training camp, if he proved he deserves a roster spot.  Unfortunately now he'd still eat up cap space while taking ice time away from some kid in GR if he were sent down.  We know we have guys in GR who could be called up and look decent in the NHL so I'm alright with the Wings being extra careful with injuries to avoid the same situation as the last 3-4 years.  At least it shows they know it's an issue.


In Topic: Mrazek Called Up

Hopefully it's just a precaution with Howard and not the start of an injury that will keep him out for any signifcant amount of time.  Although, if he does miss a few games I'd like to see Mrazek get a couple of starts.

Didn't really look like a hook to me. Kronwall just lost the puck in his skates and fell down. Unfortunate, but it happens. Great game otherwise. Moving on.

In Topic: 2014 Prospects Tournament and Training Camp (Sept. 12-23)

I know that Mantha will get a good look when training camp starts but this performance shows what a great offensive skillset he has.  If he can put up numbers even half that good against NHL competition then he'll definitely get a call up at some point in the season.


In Topic: Predictions for the DRW 2014-15 Season!

28 July 2014 - 04:47 PM

I think because the Wings have had such bad luck with injuries the past few years is a reason to believe that that luck has got to change... and because we have had such short seasons the past few years is a reason to believe that the players that need it the most (Zetterberg, Datsyuk, Franzen, Kronwall, Weiss, Helm, Howard) will be getting the rest they need. The fact that Zetterberg has said that he feels like he's years younger and that his back hasn't felt this good in years, is reason to believe that he may have a relatively healthy year. I also think a long summer off will help the other guys listed as well. I think for anyone that states that half the team will be injured after just two months of hockey is a bit ridiculous. Just my opinion...


As I've stated over and over again, I don't have any problem with negative predictions, I have a problem with people predicting the whole team will be injured... or wait for it... My prediction, Cleary sucks... a lot of thought put in to that one...

 

I mean, unless you couldn't tell, I was being a bit sarcastic with my response because I didn't think it would be taken so seriously so I apologize if that was unclear.  Like someone else said, though, perhaps the thread title should be changed because it seems like everyone is predicting what they would "like" to see instead of what they think may logically happen.
