I'm guessing this isn't directed to me as I am not one to put down Franzen, but here are my thoughts. From my understanding, doctors will give Franzen the okay if he is fully recovered from his concussion. It is also my understanding that with every concussion you get, you are more likely to get another one if you receive another blow to the head or even body. Based on the number of concussions he has had, and based on the fact that it appears every year he is missing more and more time, and from what I read his symptoms are getting worse and worse (this could be wrong) I hope he never plays again for his own health.
If it was told to me that Franzen would never have another concussion again with 100% certainty, I would gladly have him back in our lineup. Him at 100% is exactly the kind of player we need.
As time has gone on, I've realized that I really would like him back on the team. He has frustrating tendencies, sure, but he's still good for some goals, and when he heats up, he's a dominant scorer. Given the state of things now, it'd be nice to have that guy back in the lineup, and it really makes you wonder how the Tampa series would've gone if he was healthy.
But it's still hard for me to wrap my head around it being a good idea for him to play again. It just seems too risky given how bad this concussion has been. I have a feeling that at this point he will play again, and as said, part of me will be glad, especially if that's what he wants. But that won't lessen the weight of the fact that it's a scary proposition.
