Thanks !
It's not like he was never tried there in Montreal. He played on the PP the way Gorges plays on the PP (when healthy) now... 2nd unit some games, or fill-in when needed.

But look at Nashville's defense:
51 FRANCIS BOUILLON
4 CODY FRANSON
8 KEVIN KLEIN
55 SHANE O'BRIEN
52 ALEXANDER SULZER
20 RYAN SUTER
6 SHEA WEBER

Outside of Weber and Suter, you're looking at mainly d-first type guys. And Franky has always had solid offensive instincts.
