This has been beat around for years, but that is a great way to sum it up.

Fact remains you know the DRW will not buy out Franzen, that isn't how the organization works. We are stuck with him (for a time).

It's been 7 years since Franzen and team Sweden won olympic gold. A lot has changed since then. Yes he was contracted to be a stud and has nearly been that. Not extremely elite like we hoped but a solid contributor nonetheless. It's tough because every Wings fan has to grapple with the enigma that is Franzen. Some days you hate him but mostly love him especially when we win.

It's obvious Johan won't lead us to a championship, but he could be a great support to a team that is well balanced with him.

One problem is he is such a kind guy! Watch him in practice he's like a big overgrown boy. He loves playing around dangling, goofing off. He couldn't hurt a fly, he's too classy. If he was hired to be a "stud" that was the wrong characterization from the get-go.
