In the quoted sentence and a half above is everything anyone ever needed to know about Cody Franson. He's utterly brilliant at what he does (the power play, and defending against lower-tier forwards) and too easily exploited if you try to put him to work doing anything else - and yet he is utterly, unshakably convinced he can do more if he just gets his 8927th chance at it, and this will drive your coaches mad at times and it'll drive your GM mad at contract renegotiation time.

He's been that way since pretty much forever. He's a Marc-Andre Bergeron who's more or less competent at defense and thereby thinks he's a two-way star.
