Of course, but it's still better than nothing. And also better than bringing it in the regular season, but not in the playoffs. It's not like Wings are struggling to get into the post season 'cause Mule is slumping.
He's still leading the team in goals, but it's frustrating as he has the potential the score so much more. Right now I think he's good for his salary and I hope the cap rises enough so that he won't be overpayed in his late 30's.
im not a huge franzen fan to be honest, and yeah, im definitely in the minority on this. i like his big performances, but they are rare, though he was good in the playoffs the last 3 years, but i'd also like it if he played well in the 82 regular season games. the problem is that he is basically 1 dimensional.
everyones gonna have bad games, but he seems to have 60 bad games and 22 good ones
a player like helm may not produce 50 points per season, but he also does things other than score.
so even though franzen may be getting 5 shots and they are not going in, at least he's making his attempt. but when he doesnt hit, backcheck, forecheck, etc, it just feels like he's not contributing.
edit: i also hate getting involved in these "he does this but not this" type threads.
i should have kept my mouth shut
