Because he would get the a when others were out.
and we're mentioning Franzen like he even had an inkling of playing? Why mention him at all? Its not like he has played or will ever play (at least this season) again. He is not just "out" he is done. I am not even sure he even travels with the team anymore, hell he may be "recovering" over in Sweden.
Which is why he was mentioned.
He may be recovering in a sauna 12 hours a day,and eating nothing but pineapple.
But hell, why even bring that up at all?
