Most leaf fans, who are the harshest critics, give Franson an A for the playoffs:

Franson has turned into one of the league's better offensive d-men and his dzone play is decent. It was painfully premature for Poile to throw him in... both because Lombardi was healthy shortly after that, and because Franson is good. If you don't think he would've helped us this year, you are in utter denial. I'd take him over Blum and Ellis now and in the future.

It is what it is-- the only reason this is a conversation is because some people are still trying to sell Franson as chopped liver, which is not at all accurate.
