Deep into the NHL off-season, it's time to take an analytical look at individual Red Wings and assess expectations for the coming season. Today's focal point: forward Johan Franzen. Franzen got mad in training camp when reporters asked about his need to improve after a slow finish to the previous season. He had seven points in the first five games -- then went quiet for six, a snapshot of the inconsistency that marked another season. He had one point, a goal, in five playoff games, and that was because the puck went in off his skate.
A fired-up Johan Franzen could be elite scorer for Red Wings
