Guys just digging around RWC looking at their old ratings and I saw this article about Franzen from the 05-06 season.
"Franzen is extremely strong and mobile, and his No. 1 priority is in the defensive zone. The 6-foot-2, 207-pound center plays a conservative game and ó although not a bruiser ó isnít shy about getting involved physically. When he does get involved in the offensive attack, heís a capable playmaker and scorer. Mature and very close to stepping into the NHL, Franzen has the physical tools and smarts to become a solid role player in the future."
Having been fairly young back I don't remember hearing much about Franzen's offensive potential. Was this a case of people getting the wrong read on him, or did the wings always know about his untapped potential?
