Jurco and Nesty have100X more energy than Franzen and actually have the other team turning around to watch them scrambling all over the ice. Franzen one dimensional and ALL teams know his inconsistencies... I am not denying the fact that before his well expected injury, he was playing good. I did praise him by saying one game "Who is this Franzen guy and what did he do with my Francine..." but that doesn't mean that he is going to bring anything more to the table that he doesn't normally bring. I guess I should have used the term IMO, he is replaceable. I happen to think that the chemistry that Jurco brings to this team with Tatar and Sheahan, is better than throwing Franzen in there to float around and put up 5 points in 4 games every couple of months...then get injured again. The team is cruising along no worse now than what it was with him in the lineup, and its not like he is going to return and put up 40 goals this season, he is not a difference maker. That is the tell-tale right there.
Yep your absolutely right. Let's just write him off before giving him any more chances. Let's continue to put out "energy" guys that have 2 points between them, while Franzen has 4GP and 5 points. We clearly don't need any help scoring goals or anything.
