Van would get a guy to play top line wing and a fourth line center/winger plus a talented Vancouver prospect.
Det would get a gritty right handed Dman to play in the top 4 plus a big prospect who can help down the road.
Of course it would be dependent on Bieksa waiving his NTC. Not sure if value would be close or if it's way off.
Might work....Bieksa would be an upgrade on the D. Losing Franzen would be hurtfull for our goalscoring production, but he could perhaps be replaceable...it would be interesting what other DRW fans think. I dont think its way off because in my mind we would really use another established top 4 D.
This is from DRW point of view.
Does the canucks need this type of player?:
Franzen is a trigger man, he have a good accurate shot. He isnt super fast obviously though. He can sometimes suprise with a pretty good acceleration, he can go from really slow to pretty quick to shake of defensemen, or at least he does it when he is at his best. He is obviously a lot better when he have access to a good playmaker.
Franzen has been fighting injuries sometimes in the past. Not sure how he will hold up going forward in that department.
