Frans is my favorite Islander too
I wanted to get his jersey last season but ended up not pulling the trigger because I wasn't sure he'd re-sign or not (I learned my lesson with getting a Bergenheim jersey).
Frans is one of my Fav players in the entire NHL. I love what he brings each and every shift out there. However i do see him as a nice solid 3rd line Center. I think at best he is a POOR mans Second line center. His roll fits well as a 3rd line guy IMO. 2nd line might be a bit much. However there is nothing wrong with a splash of him being a second line as a fill in type of roll. I dont think he should be on a second line for any extended time frame.
