Hindsight being 20/20, I'd rather have Franson than Streit considering age and contract, but you could not necessarily expect Franson to be on the market at this point.

That said, it's pretty much too late for us to have real interest in Franson at this point.

I mean we could do it if we're willing to let Gus sit in the pressbox for a year and then jump in next year assuming Timonen retires.

Well I don't know if they sign Kadri for $4-4.5M they still have some money & could fit Gus in at $1M/1year.

Taking Franson out leaves them with this:

Ranger hasn't played in the NHL for years now & Holzer hasn't been any spectatular. Holzer's also under $900K so he could be sent up/down. I could see them maybe being interested in Gus if them & us can make the numbers work.

Edit: I totally forgot about Morgan Rielly. He has a shot at making the team this year. I don't see them being interested in Gus at all now.
