No way do I buy out Franzen. I may be disappointed that we kept him over Franzen, and I may get sick of his two-month no-shows, but he's still an important part of this team.
Bert's cap hit might be reasonable but his penchant for taking bad penalties (bad on his part, or bad on the refs' part because he has a bullseye on his back, either way) is a detriment to the team and they have a lot of good young players ready to contribute.

Keepable? Maybe. But they have alternatives now and should have more confidence in them after the way they've been performing in GR. Besides, this team is going to have to go young at some point and it's better if they don't wait until they have to do it all at once.
