Franson was one the major factors why it went to game 7. Leaf fans give him an A. Only person bashing him is you.
Again, you redefine words. "Exceptional" does not mean "prone to defensive lapses in games where scoring". Pointing that out, then becomes "bashing" in your parlance. Really, publish a dictionary so we can all know your redefined words. Once again, you put someone else's views up, not your own.

Trigg ... I've called Franson a 3rd pairing d-man and PP specialist. I didn't say putting up points on the PP was a negative. The best Preds PP in years was the year after trading Franson away, an overlooked detail in the Franson is so great discussion. He is a role player, that's it. 2013 was also the only season where he was significantly better than Blum and Ellis in the offensive zone.
