On a junior level Franson is half the d-man than Russell, in the future in the NHL and AHL Franson will be better. Russell is a very small version of Bourque or Coffee, great for junior but too small to make a big splash in the NHL.
Russell has two gold medals, Franson one as a 7th defenseman, do you think of them in the same league on a junior level?
I'm sold on Franson, Klein and Zanon will be better IMO.
