#2352843 Franzen spear on Perron

Posted by Wingsfan72 on 07 February 2013 - 11:53 PM

This was given a 5-game suspension and totaled $125,000 in fines back in the playoffs of 2007 (prior to suspension crackdowns).  Both plays were malicious attacks against the opponent using the hockey stick as a weapon, although McLennan gave more of a slash than a spear.  Personally, I think these two cases are fairy similar, but everyone else is free to make their own judgment.  Nonetheless, if the league thinks the above penalty is worth 5 games, in the playoffs no less, than I don't think its reaching to see Franzen get one game, or maybe even a fine.  Granted, there have been a few notable spears in recent memory which didn't result in suspensions, so if he gets nothing I wouldn't be surprised at all.  I'm not about to try to predict the outcome of this situation.

I still stand by my belief that this type of behavior is a joke and should be punished.  If Franzen wants retribution for a hit he doesn't agree with, then he needs to do it like a man and use his fists, face to face with his opponent.  Otherwise get on with the game because frankly its embarrassing and a waste of time.

I honesty don't know how you can compare the McLennan slash to this.  I agree it's stupid and shouldn't be done, but that was a premeditated attack on Franzen.  McLennan was on the ice for like forty-five seconds and he was hacking from the get-go.  Franzen overreacted and speared Perron after he was checked from behind.  In no way can you compare. 


Franzen should have turned around and clocked him though...

#2326102 Red Wings player ratings for NHL 13

Posted by Wingsfan72 on 20 August 2012 - 10:37 AM

My favorite was NHL 2000.

That game was fun, but I could never get over those backhanded goals scored from the blueline, where the puck was essentially chipped over the goalie's shoulder. Pissed me off each time. :lol:

NHL Hitz Pro for PS2 was my game back in the day. Lids on the cover, Hasek was my teams leading goal scorer seeing how he apparently had mad hands! That game was ridiculous Ahahaha!

I love watching LIds play it, he's like "WTF"?


Also why is Jimmy an 84? I swear he was an 89 in 12....

#2321891 Who is your favorite player from a team besides the Wings?

Posted by Wingsfan72 on 25 July 2012 - 01:31 PM

Ovi, Rick Nash, Versteeg, Pavelski...It goes on, but I'd say those are my top 4. I like Steve Ott a lot too.

#2134630 will the wings re-sign modano?

Posted by Wingsfan72 on 22 March 2011 - 03:54 PM

It really bothers me the way some of you talk about Modano.

I thought this forum had enough class to show a little respect to a future hall-of-famer....I mean the guy had an amazing career and was/is an inspiration to US born hockey players of this generation.

The guy got mistreated in Dallas (IMO), and he came to his hometown to give hockey another try. He got injured right when he was starting to flow with his linemates and fit into the wings way of doing things, plus he's had a bunch of good chances, just bad luck...so its understandable that he is pretty much back to step one.

What did you expect a 20+ goal season? I think having him for the price he's at is a steal.

on another note: I really wish Babcock would stop playing Moe with Homer...besides the Pens game last night they really havent clicked IMO.
