Franson had 76 of his 124 hits at home, which means he only had 48 hits away.

Sure, he was more physical this year than he was in previous seasons, but he still isn't a mean player at all. I would be interested in him, for the right price. He's more of the same (offensive defenceman), but he did improve his overall game quite a bit this season.

Even if what you say is true, multiply 48 hits by two and you come up with 96 hits.

Only Canadiens player with more is Emelin with 110.

This kind of identifies a need of the Canadiens if a soft DMan from Toronto with inflated hit stats....even when they are "corrected".....still exceeds what we have here.
