^basically this

Franzen may be inconsistent, but he is the Wings top goal scorer. If we have someone that can replace him, then sure, I'll be happy with that deal, but our top six currently consists of Dats, Z, Flip, Sammy, and possibly Bertuzzi. Of those 5 players, only Z and Flip scored over 20 goals last season. Nyquist and Brunner aren't proven enough yet for us to be confident enough to move ahead without Franzen.

I think the only scenario right now for us to move Franzen would be if he was part of a package for a #1D.
