    Pretty crucial to have this guy. In the past, teams could try and shut down Datsyuk or Z and take their chances. Now they have to worry about a third guy.

    Ah, the good old days. Gotta be Avalanche announcers on this one:

    He's been huge for the Wings. But he's not alone, the entire second scoring line of Samuellson-Filppula-Franzen has done major damage. Now opponents have 2 lines to worry about.

    With 11 goals, Franzen is outscoring SEVERAL Piston players in the post-season (goals vs field goals)!

    You sure did. And those Cannuckians are always bragging about their hockey knowledge. You sure showed them!

    Great job Bill...

    The hockey goal is way bigger than the basket. That is not fair to Jarvis.

    Jarvis looks like he's wearing Skates on defense.
