Johan Franzen to IR, Wings recall AHL Goals Leader Teemu Pulkkinen

Johan Franzen can’t go very long without getting hurt and he kept the streak alive last night after hitting the IR with what the Wings are calling an “upper-body issue.” An issue? Like he has emotional baggage from his childhood issue? It’s an injury, call it what it is. Does calling it an “issue” make it seem less severe? Even if it did, why bother? Franzen’s 22 points...

Wings place Franzen on IR, recall Pulkkinen

Johan Franzen will miss at least the next week. The Red Wings placed Franzen on injured reserve Thursday, one day after he missed the 3-2 win in Calgary with an upper-body injury.

Detroit Red Wings: Time for Teemu Pulkkinen

In the past the Detroit Red Wings were known for keeping their prospects in the AHL longer than most NHL teams so there was no doubt when they reached the next level they were ready. That foundation disappeared last season when the Red Wings were forced to bring up the likes of Riley Sheahan, Luke Glendening, and Tomas Jurco because of their injury plagued season. Luckily for the...

Teemu Pulkkinen Is Overrated

Teemu Pulkkinen is overrated. I’m going to tell you why. Prospects only have value because they are expected to develop and become NHL caliber players. A prospect has value for two reasons, they have a high ceiling or a high floor.
