The problem is that Holland has neglected size in this line up. We have capable top 6 youngsters but we need a big winger or two. Losing Franzen we are shrimps up front. I don't see too many high end power forwards on the market either
This would be true if Franzen actually used his size. Franzen plays like hes 5 foot 6.
You do realize we probably wouldn't have made the playoffs if it weren't for his ridiculous surge in the latter part of the season, right?
You do realize if he hadn't completely disappeared for the last month and a half of the season when the team needed him most they wouldn't have been an 8 seed. Nyquist hot streak was what really got the Wings in the playoffs. Its not just that Franzen wasnt producing points. He wasnt doing ANYTHING on the ice that could be considered productive.
