This is a tired argument... Hossa would not make our team that much better than Franzen. Plus he isn't nearly as good in the playoffs
Hossa always tries. That counts for a lot in my book, especially given our current squad.
If Franzen were off to Hossa's start this season, people here would be calling him The Second Coming. For Hossa, this is basically business as usual.
Work hard, commit yourself, good things happen.
Float around, pretend you're tough s*** when you're not, decide you're only going to really try every so often (specifically - when there's no pressure and everything's comfy), complain that THERE'S NOT ENUFF JOYYYY!, and...you're Johan Franzen.
And then there's that contract.
"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
