At the end of the day, it's all ####. You get better by getting better players. Franson is a better player than what the Oilers have.
Your reasons are anything but specific. I see nothing to back up your claims short of "cuz I said so.". The only guy I see Franson as an upgrade over are Peckham and Potter, so basically our 7 and 8 guys. J Schultz and Sutton (likely our bottom pairing) would be basically on par with a player like Franson, except one is a 22yr old rook who needs playing time and the other is a stay at home seasoned vet with toughness who is the perfect compliment to a young, offence first rookie Dman. So in theory, Franson is likely good enough to be a 5/6 guy on our team, but not really an upgrade over the two aforementioned, nor would it make sense to play him ahead of those guys.
