I'm consistently baffled by people (looking at you, Captain Robert) who think Franzen is an incredible player who is taking nights off. He's got scoring touch and a good drive to the net.

The idea that he's good enough to coast some games but "turn it on" to score 30 goals is wild. Particularly when he's been fighting injury most seasons. So he's so talented, he can tank games, but decide when to play great, score a bunch of goals, all while being injured or threat of injury looms.

There are players that can do that. I've listed them before. There's no way I'd ever put Franzen in that group of elite talent that can half-ass their way to being a top 30 goal scorer year in, year out.
