Smith is the only one of those players that is higher valued than Franzen right now.

Filppula will be once he signs a new contract but with 1 year left on his deal he probably has the least value of all of them. Teams are afraid he'll bolt back to the Wings after one season. The Ducks might be an exception where he is concerned though as Selanne absolutely loves him but even they have to value 8 years of Franzen over 1 of Flip.

Helm is arguably more valuable to the Wings but despite his stellar defensive play and elite level speed he seriously lacks offence.

Maybe with better linemates this season he'll develop that side of his game but even the best energy guys aren't more valuable than 30 goal scorers.

Good points. The only one i dont agree with is Franzens contract length being a good thing. Hes breaking down more and more as the years go by. It seems more like a prison sentence with each passing season.

Also, I don't see to many people complaining about the drop in goal production by Zetterberg and Datsyuk. Franzen's stayed consistant, while Z and Dats have gone down point wise.

Covering both ends of the ice night in and night out can take a lot out of you, something Franzen knows nothing about.

This is so not happening.

"If I were to wish for anything, I should not wish for wealth and power, but for the passionate sense of the potential, for the eye which, ever young and ardent, sees the possible. Pleasure disappoints, possibility never. And what wine is so sparkling, what so fragrant, what so intoxicating, as possibility!" - Kierkegaard
