If Franzen was healthy the whole season would he have scored 50 goals? I calculated how many goals he would be on pace for if he had been healthy all season. At this point he would be on pace for 44 goals and thats with him just comming off missing 3/4 of the season <_<

Even if he was not injured wings still had tons of other injuries and in november/december/january etc when they had ritola, newbury, janik etc up it wasnt very pretty...would not have been easy to play

With all those injuries im sure Franzen would have tons of ice time and be on the 1st PP the entire time. But who knows, it slowed down our other guys.

I don't think he would have reached 50, but I firmly believe he'd be in the top ten goal-scorers in the league. At least 40 on the season.

I think 40 goals from Franzen would be reasonable with a healthy season.

I think Franzen is a 35 goal scorer 40 at most. His more of the clutch type goal scorer, saying that I'm glad his locked up for the rest of his carreer.

Missing 11 games - on pace for 39.
Then there's the 25 goals in 39 playoff games - which is just unbelievable.
Certainly happy he is back in the lineup, he is having a huge impact on every game and it's nice to see someone other than Bertuzzi out there throwing some mass around.

If Frazen played 82 games I can see him hitting 40 to 45 goals.

I don't think he would have scored 50, not that he's not capable but because when we are healthy we roll 4 lines more than any other team. I think thats why we never see a 50 goal scorer and i'll take the depth over one superstar any day.

Agreed. And Mick says this seemingly every broadcast.

Quite often it seems like Franzen can score at will. He is hands down our best goal scorer right now. 50 goals is nowhere near impossible for him, but 40 is more realistic.

No, because other people were injured.

It'd be hard for him to score 50 playing with GR players all over the lineup.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Probably not considering during an 82 game season everyone has slumps.

I can see 35-40 goals out of him in a healthy season.

Agreed. There is no way Mule would have scored 50. Does he have the ability, Yes. But with our philosophy of rolling 4 lines it makes us more dangerous so that we dont have to rely on one player scoring 50. Depth will take us further in the playoffs than 1 superstar. Besides if that 1 superstar cools off, then you're screwed. At least this way you've got 9+ other guys who have potential to score.

He seems to be a bit streaky. Last regular season there were times when he didn't seem to be too interested. If he could keep his playoff mode on during the whole season then he probably could hit 50.

I don't mean to be a dick or anything, I'm just asking; Does anyone ever play like that?
