A broken jaw caused him to miss 19 games two seasons ago. It's difficult to play the hard nosed style he does that made him successful while ou are recovering from a broken jaw, full face helmet or not. I'd call that a season with a significant (enough)injury.
That was the '07-08 season. 3 years ago. Two years ago he played 74 games. I don't recall the actual injury, but it was early in the year. He was pretty much healthy for the majority of the season.
And Franzen on the same line as Holmer seems to make Holmer almost redudant.
Franzen and Homer are nothing alike. Bert is much closer to Homer than Mule is.
