LOL! I had forgotten about that. In fact, the conventional wisdom from the Poile crowd was that "Blum had already surpassed Franson."

I haven't really watched Franson this season, seems to be coming into his own and has a couple of bright spots tonight. It's clear that Blum is not better than Franson.

I chuckled earlier when they said........"Franson.......acquired along with Matthew Lombardi in exchange for Brett Lebda and Robert Slaney."
That's the most absurd trade ever.

Had to search around but found a few gems:
