Franson does make some plays that leaving saying WoW both ways.....
I think this "mob" still jumps all over KK much more than they do Franson. And really, at least most of us have a rational reason behind either, even if the KK hate is from that god-awful pairing with Hammer last year; wanta' get a chuckle, go over to the DeadThings board and watch them stick pins in their Howard doll.

Franson has shooting skills without question. Franson has passing skills but his judgement leaves you questioning. His D leaves you spelling his name Co*y. And, as someone wrote so thoroughly the other day - his puck handling is poor and even a mediocre forecheck effort is likely to panic him into a poor pass - and he's supposed to be the puck-moving Dman on that tandem!

Franson is a serviceable 3rd pair guy with plus-value PP skills. He's got some upside, but call me silly, but I think a DEFENSEman should play some D.
(and I gotta' help Token hold up his half the mob)
