Goligoski also fetched Niskanen as well. I don't think Franson alone would have gotten that return, but that's just my opinion. I wouldn't say Goligoski is way ahead of Franson in terms of development, but he
have a more substantial track record.
Additionally, do you expect to add goal-scoring via trade or free-agency? I see Ward and Sullivan are coming off the books; I'm assuming you'd like Ward to return for depth purposes and most of Sullivan's money will be re-allocated to Weber. No idea what the budget will look like for Poile, but I'm guessing he'll have some $$$ to play with. I may be an outsider, but I'm keenly interested to see how this shakes out.
Side note: if I was Yzerman, I'd dangle one of Connolly or Panik as part of a package to get Blum.
