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?).

Chara
Seidenberg
Boychuck
Ference

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.
