For comparison sake, you brought Justin Schultz into this...

Who scored twice as much as Franson (8G, 4 on the PP) at 9.4%
Which would have put him on pace for 14 goals and 32 A's.
Franson played avg 19 mins a game and Schultz played 21. Schultz was also a rookie, and he's 3 years younger.

So not sure how Franson would be our #1/2D when we already have that guy on our team playing the exact same role... Schultz played top 4 mins for the Oilers this year but he shouldn't have had to, he would have been better suited to play bottom pairing minutes and QB the top PP unit. He still did pretty well all things considered, he played over 80 games this season between the AHL/NHL and he's never had to play more than ~50/yr.

But I didn't bring Schultz up - you did.
