Wow, I'm amazed that he had zero value as a trade or throw-in. Like when we were talking to the Oilers, I assume we said "hey, we can throw in Ryan Jones with the 2nd..." or when the Thrashers were signing Chelios we couldn't call and say "hey, if you want young suck to go along with your old suck, we have Ryan Jones and he's yours for a 15th round pick".
In all seriousness, I think he can fill a role on some team but we filled all available options with other, better options. He didn't do the little stuff well enough to beat out anyone. Perhaps Mike Santorelli should take note.
I still don't understand the timing. Why not waive him if and when you make a trade? Couldn't Franson stay on IR? Couldn't we pay him out this year if we don't make a trade?
