Get him off the top 6 and roll with the best 3 on your top line... they should dominate. Rest of the lines just have to play solid defense.
If Frazen isn't a top sixer then Big Bert shouldn't be anywhere near the top six. Franzen contributes enough goals to make him a threat. Imo, he could still hit 40 if he tries every night. Does he take nights off? Oh, sure. But don't act like he's useless as a top sixer. He's always on pace for 30 goals if not just under - 28ish. The hate he gets is sometimes absurd.
