Sulzer and Laakso are NHL-ready, possibly better than Franson at the moment. Hell, Blum might be NHL ready with the additional 20 pounds he's put on. Franson, however. still needs to work on skating and transition and playing more physical for a guy his size. And I would much rather have him getting 1st pairing minutes in Milwaukee than being the 6th/7th like VK would be in Nashville.

I highly doubt we get rid of Koistinen. He'll make less than $1M this year so there's no reason not to hang on to him because he can actually play way beyond that salary.
