The problem with this theory (IMO) has always been that there are so few true power forwards.
Sure there are a lot of BIG forwards, Mule, Thornton, etc...
But how many true power forwards like Lucic are in the league?
But yeah if the Wings could find a way to get a Lucic type power forward or two it would help immensely!
Also if they could find a sniper or two that wouldn't be so bad, you know a guy who is (again) what we all thought Franzen would be.
Hossa nets that shot in the third, why on earth Franzen went far side when he had the whole upper half of near side wide open, and then goes on to tell Crawford that he was lucky to make the save.
I am so tired of hearing the phrase:
"The wings really need more from Franzen" or "The wings really need Franzen to get it going".
He is starting to become a very replaceable piece living off of the legends of 3 or 4 playoffs ago.

"When I was looking for a captain, I wanted a guy with the Red Wings crest tattooed on his chest," said former Detroit coach Jacques Demers, who named Yzerman captain in 1986. "Steve Yzerman was that guy."
“Told him if he wasn't ultra-competitive he couldn't come here. If he didn't bring it every day he couldn't come here, because he was going to hate it if he didn't, dislike the coach and dislike playing here.
