Now, and in the future.
Leaf fans, until you can convince me that Franson is a Top 4 defenceman (which Matt Puempel + 3rd) is worth, than the Sens don't even sniff at this deal.
If those undervaluing Franson could look beyond the many unwarranted healthy scratched games, they would see that he's easily a 2nd pairing defender. The beginning of last season was particularly rough, but after a quick adjustment period to Wilson's ****** run-for-your-lives style hockey, Franson became solid defensively while putting up very respectable numbers for the 2nd PP unit + 3rd pairing minutes.
I can only laugh at the pure Leaf hate when Franson's called a 7th defender. Hint: he's not. Victim of circumstance with Komisarek, Liles, and Schenn being given games to which they did not deserve over Franson.
I would much rather the Leafs hold on to Franson and watch what type of player he becomes over gambling with Pamplemousse and a 3rd.
