Last year Franson was clearly upset at being scratched but I guess Ron Wilson never even told him why he was getting scratched when Komisarek and Schenn were total pylons.
Schenn blocked shots, and hit people. But he was atrocious defensively, and terrible with the puck. But he was a 5th overall draft choice...
Komisarek...is supposedly a leader, but yeah, not that good overall. But he does have a big contract...
In other words, Franson didn't have the big contract or the high draft position that's pretty much why he sat. But he can do things neither Schenn and Komisarek can do.
The Kadri thing...I'm not sure what/why/or how Ron Wilson could explain it. Except, maybe Kadri isn't a complete 200 ft player. Dunno.
