Franzen has played 4 full games so far this season and already has 4 goals. Virtually a goal per game. How many goals do you realistically think Franzen will score this season?

I voted 35-40. I feel like he has the opportunity to score 45+, but I need to see him completely healthy for an extended period of time. He's already missed 2 of 6 games, if you extend that out over 82 games that's 28 +/-2 games he'd miss. Granted, it's a very small sample size to work with, but after the injury last year and the unfortunate/illegal hit this year, I feel like it's a legitimate concern.

For me, the question is not how many goals he will score, its how many games he will stay healthy for.

Beat me by 2 minutes with 1/4 the words and 900% more clarity. :thumbup:

Before I even saw the poll options, I was thinking between 35 - 40...... so obviously that's what i voted.....As already stated, he has the ability and potential to score 45 - 50+, but it all depends on his health.

40-45 if he doesn't miss a bunch of games

mid-high 40s wouldn't shock me either but i doubt it will happen

again though he needs to stay healthy even for 40-45

If he plays the full season, between 35 and 40. The BFF line is just amazingly dominant out there.

I'll go with 30-35, under the assumption he will be injured some time this season.

As mentioned, he's definitely capable of 40+. My only gripe with Franzen is that he's soft as far as injuries go. I voted 25-30 as I'm sure he'll be sitting more games out due to injury.

I'm thinking 40ish. His play this season is really starting to make me feel better about the Hossa/Franzen decision.

Filppula gotta have a career year one would think...

that is true, but i think we will see filpula have a better year because of franzen. the good thing about the mule is that he creates his own chances, not to detract from bert or fil.

Check out the stats on that line, it's ridiculous.

Filppula has 5 points +4 in 6 games

Bertuzzi has 8 points +5 in 6 games

Franzen 4 goals and 5points in 4 full games

That line is on fire

I lol'd, that is great.

I voted 40-45, I really think that if he stays healthy (meaning not missing more than 2 games at a time) he will be our leading goal scorer. The chemistry on that line is amazing right now, and if it continues I see the three of them combining for 80 goals and at least 150 points.

With, or without the extra point?

I voted 30-35.

With, so you gotta figure that comes out to about 11 1/2 touchdowns total!

Ok fess up, who voted 60+?

Hehehe, I almost did. I voted 30-35 so I can be pleasantly kind-of-surprised-but-not-too-much when he gets more.

If he stays heathy, the sky is the limit. The dude is a monster when he gets his mojo going (Thinking of 08 SCF)

He is playing with solid players, both who are complimenting him very well. I say 44 goals, 78 points :banana:

I say 35-40. Can't vote from mobile device??? I'm figuring he'll play 70-ish games and have a few streaks where he doesn't net one for 5 games or so. I also feel that he's the best candidate to buy us all Curly Fries.
