"Thunder only happens when it's raining
Players only love you when they're playing"


Ah, Fleetwood Mac, sometimes you just get me. Lots of rumours swirling around the internet surrounding the Winged Wheel. Talk of Tootoo going back to the Music City...and really, why not? I'd trade him for a bag of pucks just to get a few more dollars back. Let's be honest, he isn't suiting up with the Wings this year. He has fallen so far down the depth charts he'll be traded or waived by training camp. It's a shame, but that's what happens when your farm team wins the Calder Cup

What about that Fransen guy?

Some buzz about the Wings and this other fellow from Nashville. Who else saw this guy as a potential top 4 d-man in the league. Not me. I'd love to get him from the Leafs. I'd even give up a few good pieces to get him. Let's say Corey Emmerton, Landon Ferrero and a fourth round pick. Pricy? Yea it is. But think about walking into camp like this:
Kronwall/Ericsson
DeKeyser/Fransen
Smith/Kindl

extra: Lashoff, Quincey

Sexy depth on that blueline. And with all the young guns coming up, I don't see much room for Emmerton or Ferrero on this team longterm. Plus the Leafs need to make room for that Morgan Reily kid right?

What ever happened to Brunner?

I for one was pretty sad that the Wings didn't sign him up longterm. I mean he could score, he was durable, and there was plenty of upside to his game. But then we grabbed Alfie and Weiss and there became virtually no room for him in our top 9. I was pretty sure someone would scoop him up during the free agent frenzy but still nothing. I wonder if he got a hush hush wink wink from Kenny Holland saying something like: "Spend a year in the KHL, collect some cash and we'll sign you longterm after Alfie's deal runs out next year." Why else is he still unsigned? The guy can play! Oh well...maybe management figured he was another Ville Leino and decided to steer clear.

In Holland we Trust.

I would love to have Franson in the Winged Wheel but to say that Emmerton, Ferraro and a 4th could possibly land this guy is asinine, let alone that it could be a little to pricey... Why would the Leafs want two career 4th line centers and a 4th round pick for arguably their best defenseman?...To get Franson, we would have to offer up something like, Kindl, Oulette or Sheahan and a 3rd...

Personally I think Ferrero could be a third line player. Emmerton is a young fourth line guy that may grow to be more...who knows. Franson is a good player, but remember he has had one good season and it was half a season...Before that he never topped 30 points in 80 games. He was traded along with Lombardi to the Leafs for Brett Lebda and Robert Slaney.... Do I want him. Yes. Will I overpay greatly for him, absolutely not.In what world would you give Kindl, Oulette and a 3rd for a guy that might be a flash in the pan?
