The argument for dressing him "just because" he's Ron Francis and the Leafs somehow owe it to him isn't good enough.

Agreed you earn your ice and spot in the line up with your recent play, not what you did for Hartford, Pittsburgh and Carolina ages ago. And then to mention him in the same breath as those Leafs who also played horrible like that's a good argument doesn't cut it either, he was just as bad and yet had no upside to him.
