With that said Franson gets the nod over Sulzer in our lineup for a reason and he will develop into a good Offensive Dman who will probably start picking up his defensive side as he gets older. Id take Franson over Sulzer 12 out of 10 times, not knocking on Sulzer but imo he is just a plug for our defense until some of our D prospects are ready to step up to the big club.
Sulzer may be holding a spot for blum et al, but anyone that can argue Franson can play any kinda D is just not paying attn. Another ex: Tonight - 2 turnovers and then poor defense letting those guys crash. His D is terrible -just like the posters above were pointing out - when Trotz can protect him playing against most teams 3 and 4 lines he's serviceable, but otherwise, he's a less-mobile zidsucky.
