You're forgetting that Franson would actually bring us back assets. You're also forgetting that Liles down the road could actually bring us back assets.

If Phaneuf reinks we've got him Gardiner/Rielly developing who will all make Franson expendable because Franson is only a valuable player if he's getting 1st PP time.

That cap space doesn't sound like much but it most definitely is. Consider that if one of the Tucker/Armstrong buyouts weren't on our books we wouldn't even be having this conversation.

In 2 off-seasons we'd be banging our heads against the wall saying I hate that Liles has a 2.375 counting against are cap.
