Giving a prospect ice time that he has not earned does not aid in a player's development, nor does pushing him into a 1st-line Toronto role that Connolly was pegged for.

How many times do I have to say it? Franson was not our 7th defenseman.

Over paid and a mistake as he has a NMC so we could not bury him like we did with Finger.....we could not trade him as no one would take on that contract.
It was a bad result. If Komisarek had played like he did before coming to Toronto, it would have been a good signing. Either way, he was signed for market value.

NMC or not, he would not be buried. Even now, he is NHL caliber. Nothing like Finger. He is just not 4.5 million caliber.

It's not spin. It is facts. Quotes and league average for a player like him support this.

Liles is not soft, and was an important part of this team for the first half of the year. One of the most important. He also brings valuable leadership and experience to a young squad. Liles is better than any alternative we have right now.

THE YEAR BEFORE. And then his development stalled, and he wasn't even playing well in the AHL.

And no facts or supporting evidence given.
