Unless you want to increase the pick, that's where it'd be at. Otherwise, yes Franson has a monster shot from the point and will be amazing on your team. Girardi>Franson though.
Interesting, how's Smithson's skating? The Rangers are looking for speed.

I would be interested in a straight swap. Perron is a great player. Righty shot too. Value wise, I don't see why the Rangers would add, despite Staal's injuries. Perron has concussion history, too.

Depends on what the decent prospect would be.
