Look, if you want to ignore the facts, go ahead.

He scored 62 goals in the 91 games over 13 months before he was signed.

The Wings gave him 12 year deal.

They chose him over 40 goal scorer Marian Hossa.

So pretend the Wings didn't expect 40 goals from Franzen if you want.

I don't care what you want to believe. The proof is in the numbers and the Red Wings action.
