He would be a guy that lets EJ roam and use his offense.
Why bring that in when we have Hejda, and Siemens in the pipe? If you say hes not a #2 then what makes him much better that using Wilson next to EJ as well?
At least with Franson if we are getting a 2nd pairing guy, he can provide offense with EJ, Franson, and Barrie down the right side. Franson is also huge and a fairly good skater for his size. Pair him with someone like Hejda, Wilson, or Siemens and it would add high end depth.
