Hey if I made an error at all in the comparison, I believe it's that I overrate Paul Stastny - he's not going to be as good as Ron Francis. Francis I think averaged over a PPG in his entire career, and I don't know if Paul's gonna get there. His success is going to depend on his linemates, and I think that's obvious now into his career. But anyways, I do think Stastny needs to be our second line center for us to win. I just don't see him carrying this team on his back. Are you trying to argue the merits of Stastny or of Ron Francis? I stated in my post up there that I think Ron Francis is one hell of a player already.
