The OVERALL POINT that you ignore because it's inconvenient to your poorly thought out argument is that Franzen was signed to be a STUD.

Not to be a lazy floater who scores 27 goals a season.

If Franzen had scored at a 32 goal rate in the 91 games prior to his contract, Hossa would be a Red Wing and Franzen might have signed a 3-year, 9M contract (if Holland could figure out how to trade Cleary)
Was he? Even when those contracts were being handed out like candy, the stud playerswere getting cap hits closer to $6m and better. Hossa's offered deal was over $5m, right?

If Franzen was really being looked at as a "stud," his cap hit would have been higher. Likely closer to Hossa's rumored offer.

If you want to argue that we should have went with Hossa regardless, go for it. I think there's a better argument from that angle, anyway.
