Dude. He wasn't even supposed to sniff the NHL last season. Sulzer and Laakso were "the guys," and even Blum was supposedly better poised to step up. He supplanted a guy with a one-way contract, was one of the lone bright spots on a dismal power play, and put together a respectable point total in only 60 games. Is he rock solid defensively? No. But WHO CARES? They are called OFFENSIVE DEFENSEMEN for a reason. It's something that we as fans sometimes fail to grasp with guys like Zidlicky, Grebs, and now Franson--partly because our own coach sometimes doesn't grasp it. As long as someone is covering his butt, it works out. He gets paid(and a menial amount, by the way...not sure where your gripe with 800K is...) to put up points--something he did, and will continue to do. Have some perspective.
