#2518714 Wings will buy out Tootoo, not Franzen.

Posted by BuckeyeWingsfan80 on 01 May 2014 - 03:48 PM

 

Franzen isn't getting bought out regardless. When are people going to realize that buying out Tootoo has nothing to do with Mule?

 

Also, Franzen is not this teams problem! He isn't out there costing the Wings games.

 

Like hell....Franzen's lazy as all hell pass in Game 5 directly cost them that game.

Everyone needs to be honest with themselves. Holland is going to re-sign Sammy, Cleary, Alfie, Bert, and Quincey. Next year Dekeyser will be playing in the minors for no reason and Tatar, Nyquist, Sheahan, and Jurco will be traded. They will be replaced with Ray Whitney, Jaromir Jagr, Teemu Selanne, and Hal Gill. 

 

You forgot Brooks Orpik

I agree. Look at the squad that Jarmo put together over the course of a couple seasons. They function as a team,and have a real chance of bouncing s***sburgh and Cindy from the first round.

 

And their minor leagues are stacked with young speedy wingers and puck moving d-men that will make an impact sooner rather than later.

Fire Holland

 

cut Franzen/Lashoff/Kindl/Weiss/Sammy/Cleary.  don't resign Bert or Alfie.  Dangle Howard as trade bait.

 

Blow it up.  Bring in a new GM (Jarmo in Columbus would be epic for this franchise and I think they could get him too) and rebuild.

that might might the nail in Franzen's coffin.

 

Holland will re-up him for 10 years after this performance and call it a cap necessity.

Remember when the Wings were feared because of their ability to move the puck?  Yeah...seems like forever ago

:lol:

 

as if the Wings are playing well enough to win this game.  Yes the refereeing sucks, but the refereeing isn't why this series is 3-1.  Get a grip people. the Wings just aren't that good.

next year should be a lot better... with Weiss, Alfie gone, Z+D healthy, Sammy+other pointless cap eating vets gone, etc. 

 

I am 100% certain we said something similar after the Chicago series last year.

 

Until the guy who made this team leaves, we're going to continue to get a parade of over-ripe youngsters and stupid old and fragile vets who don't contribute.




#2512678 ECQF Game 2 GDT : Red Wings 1 at Bruins 4 - Series tied 1-1

Posted by BuckeyeWingsfan80 on 20 April 2014 - 04:44 PM

 

So has Holland by not improving this defense over the years.  We've got one defenseman hurt, so that results in a scrub like Lashoff having to be inserted into the lineup. What does that say about our depth?  

 

Slow down.  I'm not going to defend anything Holland has done.  But other than Datsyuk, Boston has dominated every single legit NHL player on this roster as well as the AHL-level defense.

 

This team has been barely squeaking into the playoffs the past few years for a reason.  they aren't that good.  Boston is on a completely new level compared to Anaheim last year.

It's looked like a power play for the last couple minutes....Rask is saving Boston.

Wifey works for Nationwide and scored some playoff tickets for Game 3 in Columbus next Monday.  I'll be close enough to be heard :lol:

I'm not usually a big Scott Hartnell fan, but the playoff series two years ago where he basically baited Cindy into losing his mind (and with it, Cindy's team) was one of the greatest stretches of epic awesomeness I've seen since the Wings won their last Cup.

1 more point and we're in for sure?  

 

Yes - Detroit and Columbus hold all the tie breakers with Washington and NJD.
