Red Wings LW Franzen sprains knee, out 3-4 weeks


DETROIT (AP)—Red Wings forward Johan Franzen will be out for three to four weeks because of a sprained left knee, the team said Sunday.

The Detroit left winger damaged the medial collateral ligament during the second period of Saturday night’s 6-5 shootout win over the Chicago Blackhawks.

Franzen was injured during a collision with Blackhawks defenseman Brent Sopel in the neutral zone.

The Red Wings recalled left wing Ville Leino from Grand Rapids of the AHL.

The only reason we’re not getting killed in this game so far is that the Blues suck.

Total of 5 SOG in the 1st, Fans should be fined for wasting electricity to watch this.

Jeez, Ozzie’s goaltending is worse than Homer’s english.

Babs should have spotted the Blues 3 goals and started Conklin.

Again, Ozzie looks like a 15 year old giving up her 5-hole at a Jonas Brothers concert.

All right! we have a good old-fashioned goalie suck-off on our hands!

We’ve switched these teams’ NHL-caliber goalies with blind hobos, let’s see if they notice.

They look lik they are all playing with malaria.

Looks like Wings will keep Hossa next season :rolleyes:

The Red Wings expect to have Johan Franzen and Marian Hossa back in the fold next season, signed to new contracts, reports the Detroit Free Press.

Hossa told TFP over the weekend [see video] that he's enjoyed his time with the Wings and appears confident a deal will be reached.

According to the Free Press, negotiations with Franzen are moving in the right direction.

"I think we're in the ballpark, but we don't have a deal done," Wings GM Ken Holland told the paper. "They know I want to talk to [agent] Ritch Winter regarding Marian Hossa.

"I think we have a chance to keep both players, but that does mean other players have to move."

Forward Mikael Samuelsson can become an unrestricted free agent July 1, and if the Wings keep both Franzen and Hossa, he will move on.

Winger Jiri Hudler can become a restricted free agent July 1, and the Free Press suggests he might not return next year, either, although Holland has acknowledged in the past that he'd like to keep him. If the Wings lose him via an RFA offer sheet, they would receive draft pick compensation.

Meanwhile, the paper also reports the Wings are exploring their options leading up to the March 4 deadline.

"I don't see us being active, but we've got some names of some players that are cheaper, who make less than $1 million, who can give us depth up front and on the back end," Holland said. "It would have to be a trade, depending on the length of the contract. But we've got depth in the organization, and we're trying to keep being a legitimate contender, and that means hanging on to players and draft picks. It's important to have an influx of homegrown talent."

From the Editor: It doesn't surprise me to see both Hossa and Franzen back next year, but I'd be a little surprised if they let Hudler go. What wouldn't shock me, either, is if Holland pulls another ace up his sleeve via the trade front, allowing him to keep all three. It sounds like one of Hossa/Franzen could get a new deal done as early as the trade deadline.
