As for Cleary being on the first line, obviously not ideal, but lets not act. Like Brunner has played well lately. Babcock is making a line that can shut down the opposing teams first line, since they don't have a defensive third line that can.

As for Franzen, I really hope the Wings use their buyout clause on him this offseason. Get that lifetime deal off the books and get that injury prone, heartless player off this team. I don't know what it is, but Franzen does not compete hard, he coasts through 90% of his shifts. He is lucky enough to play with one of the best playmakers in the history of the game, but seems like he could care less. At least Danny Cleary plays hard, he is just horrible.
Franzen is third on this team for plus/minus. He's been our top goal scorer. Maybe he doesn't play the game you want him to play but he seems to be getting things done out there. Maybe your perception of him is skewed and you're suffering from confirmation bias?
