Forward wise... Brunner playing well, Tatar, Tootoo. I wish to Christ that Datsyuk could get some help. Watching Cleary and then Abby both flub the same pass from Datsyuk and not even get a shot on net...
Waves of sadness washing over me.
I remember Abdelkader got a bouncing pass in his feet in the slot. Is that what you're talking about? I doubt Datsyuk could get a shot off in that scenario.
Franzen at 3.9 vs Hossa at a shade over 5 mil may be one of the worst decisions Kenny has ever made.
Could have easily just let Vancouver offer the offersheet on Flip or moved some salary around. But people on these boards were right. Why sign someone who "doesn't show up in the playoffs" when we have a superstar like Franzen .
-It really could have been trade return of Flip (which would probably be close to an all-time high)
In all seriousness though, I think it's just clear Franzen isnt happy with Babcock or the system we're playing. He's a passionate guy and only plays when he's content with the system or pissed off. Here's to hoping Kane jaws at him again.
Babcock "Let's Get After It"
As if. You've got one scoring line.
No way the Wings win this game if the Hawks keep playing like this. Unless Jimmy has an unreal game
Reminds me of when Herb Brooks was talking about Jimmy Craig. When he's on he's an unbelievable goaltender, I mean really he has an elite level when he's on. Problem is Howard has games where he's flat and Jimmy gives up a lot of soft goals

Dude, Franzen scored like a billion goals in the playoffs ten years ago though!
I just cant stand a guy like franzen with all the tools and no work ethic and then see guys like emmerton, tatar and tootoo work their ass off to make something happen. Personally i dont want that guy on my team
