I don't get this whole "Franzen is lazy" talk. Is it because his style of game looks lazy? Did Babcock call him out? Sure he has his ups and downs (his are a little more extreme), but the guy isn't "lazy" just because he could be more than what he is. He was supposed to be a 3rd liner but he's become a 30 goal scorer. Not to mention the guy is getting paid less than $4 million per.
In the Preds series, for example, Franzen wasn't productive enough offensively, but the guy was busting his ass and laying some big hits.
You guys want to trade Franzen? What improvement would we get from that? An even smaller forward core...
The Mule isn't some amazing player but he would be a perfect 2nd line forward with Zetterberg. Too bad KH refuses to give Datsyuk some 1st line talent on both wings.
