#2516827 ECQF - Game 5 - Red Wings at Bruins - 3:00 PM EST

Franzen signed first, I don't think he was picked over Hossa.  I dont think they wanted to gamble to see if Hossa would re-sign and end up losing both.  Truth be told though, Hawks had a worse cap situation than the Wings at the time and still managed to sign Hossa.  Holland worries too much about depth, depth guys can be easily picked up.  Legit stars are much harder to come by.

 

If I remember right Holland wanted Franzen first and then wanted to wait for the offseason to offer Hossa a contract. That in my book is choosing one over the other.

Anybody can blame Franzen can also blame the refs for not calling the dive... Again!

 

If Franzen would actually skate he wouldnt have to grab someones shoulder. Grabbing a players shoulder like that in plain view is a penalty 100% of the time regardless of if there was a dive.

The problem is that Holland has neglected size in this line up. We have capable top 6 youngsters but we need a big winger or two. Losing Franzen we are shrimps up front. I don't see too many high end power forwards on the market either

 

This would be true if Franzen actually used his size. Franzen plays like hes 5 foot 6. 

 

You do realize we probably wouldn't have made the playoffs if it weren't for his ridiculous surge in the latter part of the season, right?

 

You do realize if he hadn't completely disappeared for the last month and a half of the season when the team needed him most they wouldn't have been an 8 seed. Nyquist hot streak was what really got the Wings in the playoffs. Its not just that Franzen wasnt producing points. He wasnt doing ANYTHING on the ice that could be considered productive.

Big changes this off-season. No idea what they'll be, but they're necessary.

 

This has been said the past two or three years. Nothing has changed. Come late August the big signing will be Dan Cleary and Quincey will have gotten a new 4 yr/ 4 mill per contract.

Apparently it takes Ericsson 3 months to return from a broken finger. At least Franzen plays the game still while taking an early vacation

 

Its not like E just had a simple break. His finger basically disintegrated give the guy a break geez. If he could play he would be. Franzen would be more effective in the press box. No passion, no leadership, no scoring. He is a waste.

Quincey playing his stellar D and Marchand bailed him out.

1 Goal in his last 21 games...  Man that's pathetic.  Way to go Franzen.

 

Add the fact that he brings nothing else to the table other than scoring and hes a waste.

Franzen needs to start playing or be bought out. He is not worth the cap hit for the 25 games a season he shows up for. The rest he brings nothing to the team. He can't live off the playoffs anymore as he now has just as many bad ones as he has good. Sent from my Nexus 10 using Tapatalk

They are not that good,nor we're that bad as some claims.Rask was the difference with the timely saves tonight,unlike Jimmy, unfortunately


I dunno that Rask was much of a difference. Wings got shots but only 2 or 3 good chances all game. Boston was getting chances all game. Rask had any easy afternoon.

Boston has played this game like a must win which it basically was. Wings played it like they were content with a split going home. Plain and simple. Sent from my Nexus 10 using Tapatalk

This game is on Howard. Regroup and rock them in Detroit.

First goal 100%. Trying to put the whole game on him is just idiocy. Very few wings showed up today. Even Dats hasn't been good.

Would be nice if Franzen would decide to show up sometime soon. Wings have been in playoff mode since the start of March and hes been irrelevant the whole time. Playoffs are supposed to be his time but he hasn't shown up for them since 2010. Sent from my Nexus 10 using Tapatalk

Games like this make me realize how set this franchise is for the next decade or more.

 

They are set at forward. If the young defenders turn out as good as the young forwards then the streak could reach 30.
