I think the Wings are very easy to play against physically. The big guys aren't known for their hitting. Franzen is big and skilled, but doesn't really battle for pucks. Team speed is supposed to be our real strength, but that didn't really work for us when playing against a team like Boston.
We're certainly not as physical as Boston. Good thing we don't play them 82 times every season. Also, I don't think Franzen is as big a pattycake as everyone makes him out to be. He battled along the walls all the time. Babcock wouldn't play him as much as he does if Franzen didn't.
