Both are big, strong, hard to move guys, but Peplinski had no quit, and Franzen apparently has had lots of quit lately. Peplinksi can fight, take faceoffs and play other positions if needed. Franzen can’t. As much as Peplinski is the more attractive producer, he is, in particular, a much more attractive 4th liner.
Peplinski's estimated linemates (by players with whom he most frequently shared a point on an even strength goal).

1980-81 Willi Plett Eric Vail
1981-82 Jamie Hislop Lanny McDonald
1982-83 Lanny McDonald Kevin LaVallee
1983-84 Kent Nilsson Steve Tambellini
1984-85 Kent Nilsson Steve Tambellini
1985-86 Joel Otto Joe Mullen
1986-87 Joel Otto Joe Mullen

Although his totals were usually relatively low, meaning that these were his most common linemates but not his linemates all or even most of the time, necessarily.
