As a fourth line winger in this draft (especially given SEVERAL picks made before him and taking on surprisingly bigger roles than his will be), Franzen is excellent for his clutch play when it matters most, his physical play, his ability to help a less physical linemate get ice to skate, his net presence.
Hell, I just took Buzz Boll. Check out his playoff stats. All I'm saying is that Franzen's clutch play over that 3-year span has to be taken into context with his frustrating seasons ever since.
