Franson was one of major reasons Leafs were even in the series. He was on the ice for the GWG, but Phaneuf was on the ice for most of the epic Boston comeback.
Leaf fans give him an A. If you want to downgrade his performance and say he was a huge reason they lost, you are in the extreme minority.
Do what you need to do to tell yourself the Franson trade was good.
