to be fair,

Franzen while having a lifetime contract is not a young man. He's 32 now, will be 33 in December. Not a centerpiece for a team looking to build something.

Filppula, while solid, is not going to put the numbers up in Columbis that he did in Detroit. He may not have played directly with Dats and Zetts, but by extension, he benefitted from 3r dpairing defensive assignments and took advantage of that. I like him as a player, but I can't see Howson looking at both guys and thinking that this is the direction he wants to go in as he tries to build something in Ohio.

Rebuilding teams to not trade for 28 and 32 year old players
