Franzen >> Hudler.

How is a reliable 30 goal/50pt scorer that's sound defensively locked into a $4m cap hit long term such a bad thing? Franzen can clearly take over playoff games.
He will shortly be turning 33 years old, and is signed for EIGHT more seasons at an 4M dollar cap hit.

I understand that Franzen brings a great playoff resume and has more intangibles, but his age and contract length make him an unattractive option to trade for. It's really that simple.
