Not counting Brisebois, Bouillon and Dandenault contracts that are expiring, we'd have some moving room to re-sign others, maybe give Tanger a new contract and get our RFA's to sign cheap.

I know I am getting way ahead of myself, but bottom line is I'd like to see Habs sign Franzen to a 4.5M-5.5M deal, for 4-5 years. He could be a serviceable 1st line center and move down to 2nd line duty by the time we draft a real 1st line center?

What say?
How does Frazen fill our need for a center?
