I like what I've seen of Franzen so far.
The big difference? He's engaged physically and isn't coasting in the defensive end, unlike most games in the past few years. If he keeps this up, I won't be able to say he IS a lazy floater who doesn't try hard defensively; just that he WAS one. Of course we're only three games in, so there are 45 games for him to go back to his old habits.
