Not to mention a reasonable chance Goc gets re-signed as the 3rd line center at a cheap price.

Preds need 2 things: Colin Wilson to develop into a Top 6 winger AND a Top 6 winger. If Wilson can develop into a true top line guy, then the other slot is a 2nd/3rd liner who can produce more than the other 8-10 other third line wingers already in the stables.

For Franson to attract something really interesting, I think he has to be packaged with some other parts like Halischuk, a prospect/pick, maybe the rights to Ward/CalO'.

Having said that, I would re-sign SOB, trade Franson and promote Josi. Ryan Ellis is coming soon enough to fill the slot of PP specialist hidden on our 3rd pairing.
