But he's never ever lazy.

Franzen? He gets lazy.
Actually on the team if I had to use a player to debunk the Franzen argument I would have trotted out Filppula. Now he just had his "Franzen Breakout" and of course he isn't as big. But we never get upset when he doesn't go to the middle, shoot the puck enough or whatever. He plays a little better defense on the wing but I really don't see a huge difference in effort level between the two.

Maybe his hate parade is waiting with his next contract, I am actually pretty sure that is what it is given the history of this fanbase.
