Or is this a mysterious political situtation that seems to happen on many teams that no one understands?
(Well said IDC)
What Fransoo lacks in size and speed, she has made up for it with good positional play and outstanding puck smarts. That's what has kept her on the team. The boy's she bumped did not have those skills. She was the best Barons AA pee wee defence(person) last year. I would put her in the # 5 defender spot on this team.
But.... in a league with man-sized boys, full of testosterone and aggression, can she survive? I hope so! But only time will tell!
