His defensive game needed work, but he has the offensive upside that's for sure, by your logic Kovalchuk is no franchise player either since his defensive game needs a big improvment.

The other thing you have to pay attention to is I said he has the potential to be a franchise player, but at the moment he's not, that's like the same logic that Nashville fans are using for the 1st line potential that Hartnell is supposed to have.

Spezza has shown that he has more offensive upside then Hartnell and frankly he has proved it more on the score sheet.
