    MTS has probably the best atmosphere in the league. Winnipeg are another team desperate for a win. I hope the same Wings team that played yesterday shows up.

    If Almqvist score a goal or 2 what do you think the wings will do send him back to the griffins or keep him in the nhl and trade someone ??

    I don't know what to think. We actually scored a few goals this trip so far. It's a little confusing. Is Franzen supposed to come back? I think if we keep this lineup we'll put up a hell of a fight. It's a little sad that I feel less comfortable with Franzen in the lineup than out.

    I think Mule is supposed to be back, but who knows. It personally wouldn't bother me to keep this lineup together until Thursday, when we get back home.

    Disagree.

    I'd rather have Franzen at 10% playing on the 2nd line, than Cleary playing at 100% playing on line 2.

    I guess?

    He's been pretty impactless so far. About as impactless as Cleary.

    In Cleary's defense, he tries. Franzen doesn't try 90% of the time.

    Don't disagree there. But Franzen can score goals, Cleary can't.

    Normally. Franzen has 6 goals over his last 26 games. That's this season and playoffs last year. Cleary has 5 goals over 29 games in that time. In fairness, though, Franzen was going wild to end the season last year.

    But since the playoffs last year, it's a two horse race. I'm just hoping Franzen is starting slow, because his 2 goals this season came in 1 game.

    That's some pretty serious cherry-picking.

    Cleary has really done nothing this year. He has a phantom assist, an empty net assist, which accounts for 2/3 of his points.

    He has the worst shooting % of any forward that's scored a goal. We see him get set up with quality chances every game, and he never converts.

    Franzen needs to be a lot better though, no doubt, I do agree there. But a lazy skilled forward, is still a skilled forward. And let's be honest, Cleary has been bad too.

    But Franzen hasn't been doing much.

    Lidstrom wasn't huge nor was he the fastest skater. I'm not comparing Almqvist to Lidstrom. I'm just saying that smart players are able to use their hockey IQ to overcome their shortcomings. And Almqvist is definitely a smart player. Offensively, at least.

    If Almqvist was 6'1 and 190 lbs like Lidstrom it wouldn't be an issue. He's far from that though.

    Jets are terrible right now. No reason to lose this game.

    Like I said before, a Western sweep would be amazing with 7 of the next 8 games being at the Joe.

    Why are people acting like it's a Franzen/Cleary swap; it's not. Cleary isn't getting scratched, I hope Franzen doesn't play but he likely will.
