Franzen

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.

He only scored 34 last year with a pretty deadly lineup offensivly...

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.

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.

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.

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.

35-40 seems to be a reasonable expectation for a healthy Franzen although he can be a threat to enter the 40-50 range in the coming years if he and the team stay healthy. This chemistry with Datsyuk is quite exciting and with that new found chemistry we have a great setup man and a solid goal scorer so yeah, 50 goals could happen for Franzen but a lot has to go right.
