unreal potential is an exaggeration, but I could easily see him turning out as a solid top 4 guy, he is already a borderline top 4 guy right now. He thinks the game really well, if he can improve his offensive game he will turn out as a great defenseman for us.

Value is there, but I wouldn't trade Tanev for Franson. Call me a homer, but I think it's best if both teams keep their guys.
