from Dave Goricki of the Detroit News,
Franzen doesn’t like the “goal-scorer” tag.
"I am not a goal scorer,” he said. “I am a hockey player. I never look for goals. I look to play good and then people score or I do."
Franzen is looking forward to the new competition in the Eastern Conference.
"It will be a lot of new faces and you've got to learn how those teams play, and it's going to be different, probably take a while before you get to know everyone," said Franzen. "You have to be extremely focused and you've got to come prepared because we've played so many years (in the Western Conference) and you pretty much know every guy on those teams."
Franzen plans to make himself scarce once the HBO 24/7 cameras come out prior to the Winter Classic: "I'll try to hide somewhere. I really don't like being in front of the camera."
