Franzen Ready, Datsyuk Is Not

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

“I haven’t had any issues, so hopefully I’ll wake up tomorrow and it’s the same way,” Franzen said. “I hope to play.”

Franzen skated on a line with Darren Helm and Daniel Alfredsson during practice.

The fact he’s missed 16 games because of the concussion baffles Franzen, who didn’t think this would be a long-term problem.

“I thought it would be a five-day kind of thing,” Franzen said. “It wasn’t much of a hit, and usually it takes that long before you get rid of the headaches and everything’s working properly.

“But it just hung in there, and it wouldn’t go away. I’ll cross my fingers and hopefully it’ll stay away.”

more including Datsyuk hoping to play next week...

About The Malik Report

The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
