Ouch. Wow. That's big.
The 80 goal loss of offense from last season, and now Franzen goes down for most of the season.
Sucks for them.

To be honest, the Wings deserve this for circumventing the cap with his stupidly structured contract.

That's what you get for cheating the system. :lol:

Agreed! Yesterday was one of the worst sports days for Mo that I can remember.

Yes, but we have the Rams Sunday to make these bad memories go away.

They will create such horrors we won't be able to remember Thursday.

While I wouldn't wish horrible pain and suffering to anyone, this is a Red Wing we're talking about, so I'm somewhat conflicted.

I think that the overall hit to their success this year is going to be more painful than what Franzen is going through. A low seed or missed playoffs altogether isn't out of the question. The Wings not in the playoffs would be like Christmas in April.

Maybe I'm the only one who feels this way, but this injury makes me sad.

I wanted a completely healthy Detroit team to suck and get a low playoff seed. Now they've got an excuse.

I don't know. The Blues went without Kariya and EJ last season and they did alright. I guess it would have been different had they tanked; it would have been an excellent excuse.

Point is, if they are a true contender they should be able to play through some injuries.

Having had 2 torn ACLs myself, I feel for the guy.

But the Red Wings can go straight to hell. :twisted: :detsucks:

Now if Holmstrom can get a puck in the face and break his jaw I will be happy.
