If he rushes just to play in the Olympics, he is only setting himself up for a setback.
Agreed, it's gonna take quite a while before we see the Franzen of old, I dont care who you are, minus Superman, sustaining a catastrophic injury like a complete tear of your ACL, is not like spraining your pinky. It's a long, slow process.
He should concentrate more on slowly building back the strength in his knee, instead of rushing back so he can play in the olympics and risk doing career threatning damage too it. Heck it's not like there won't be another in 4 more years, yea he''ll be 4 years older(33 or 34?) but if he can maintain the level of play he has showed the past 2 seasons, he should have no problem making the team in 2014.
