Although Johan Franzen isn't looking to play in Europe at this time, he hasn't closed that door.
"If they will cancel the season, I would start to look at things," Franzen said. He's been put off so far by the high taxes and the insurance payments he would have to make to protect his NHL contract. Franzen hasn't specified where he would play, but he did say that it probably wouldn't be the KHL or Switzerland. He was a member of Linkoping HC of the Swedish Elite League before originally joining the Detroit Red Wings.
