I'm not a fan of Franson at all, and don't want him on the B's, but there are absolutely spots on the B's for a dman. I don't think Hamilton is ready to be a full time defenseman on a playoff team. Krug has been disappointing in Providence, and is a question, with his size, to ever make the NHL, and Adam McQuaid had surgery on his shoulder (he may be ready by now, but who knows?).
Still need 2 more every day NHL quality defensemen and 1-2 back ups. Assume McQuaid is ready to go, and that Aaron Johnson can be the 7th, I still see need for a bottom pairing defenseman. I know everyone assumes that will be Hamilton, but from what I've seen of him in limited viewing (summer tourney, pre-WJC exhibitions) he doesn't seem ready for that kind of role. Next year? Sure. This year? Not sure.
