The whole "Franzen is a scorer" narrative itself is flawed. I blame Mickey Redmond for this. He always yapped about how Franzen is a "50 goal scorer" and screwed with the perception of the fans.
Expectations of fans is what causes all this Franzen hate. Franzen has always just been an above average goal scorer. High 20/ Low 30 goals a season type.
I don't mind having that if he's healthy. We need all the scoring we can get.
Agreed, but I also think those expectations are so high because he has had an ability like nobody else to simply take over a game.
