I listed Franson as a 5th or 6th Dman with physicality only to be told he isn't physical despite the hits. Now either he's a 7th Dman or he's s... which is it EzPz, and he was thrown in on the deal for Lombardi's contract so the Leafs would absorb his $4 mil deal.

If in fact he's S... then why are people discussing it here?

There is no way he's worth a 1st round pick, possibly a 2nd, a late 2nd and a so/so prospect, is more than enough when the Leafs are going to lose him for nothing. The matter of contract and length is debatable and the Habs can wait for the next draft.

Keep the 2nd add it to any gained this season, hopefully a few from trades involving upcoming UFA's and move up in the first round of the 2014 draft. Hayden Fleury looks to be the next big name Dman out of the WHL he's LD and can be a top pairing Dman in the NHL.

To do this the Habs will need to trade for a couple of late 1st's or early 2nd's and draft Fleury. Fleury will give the Habs the youngest and quite possibly the best defence in the NHL other than Nashville, the stingiest defence.

That seems like the best possible solution, certainly better than debating over Cody Franson the 6th Dman if he was in Habland until Emelin comes back.
