I've held off on promoting this in the past, but I think it's now viable to discuss replacing Franzen. Why is viable now...because he is not in our top 3 offensive group anymore. Yes, he has 19 points thus far and an assist machine. However, at a cap hit of $4M...I think his offensive numbers actually make him trade-able at this cap hit.
1. I'd replace him with someone younger who can produce for us for the next five years.
2. He's 34, and a big boy, father time and father injury are not in his favor.
3. The assists are great, but we need goal scorers.
