Detroit Red Wings: Johan Franzen is the x-factor

The Detroit Red Wings kicked off the 2014-15 season with a comeback 2-1 victory over the Boston Bruins. A goal from Justin Abdelkator’s rear end and a power play tap-in from Gustav Nyquist was enough to cover up the ill-advised turnover that gave the Bruins their only goal. The first star of the game was Johan Franzen. I’d say undeserved, but I’ll give credit where credit is...

For three years, he was a guy you could count on to come up and produce big points when the games really mattered. Since that 2010 playoffs, he has 10 points in 31 games. This is just simply not good enough for a guy who is expected to produce points. This got me thinking...
