Johan Fransson

Johan Fransson had a great season in the SEL. Has anyone heard anything about him possibly coming over to the NHL? I believe the Kings own his property. Any and all info is appreciated. Thanks

No one has his NHL rights anymore. There are some rumors though that the Kings, along with the Canucks, are interested in signing him.

Why would any NHL team want Fransson?
Yes, he is a good skater, but thats all he is. He is horrible defensively and has no hockey sense at all.

It's now confirmed he will play for the Kings this upcoming season, a big set back for Luleň who loses their best offensive d-man.

I'm not sure he's up for the NHL though, he makes a ton of stupid mistakes...but atleast he has a fun style of play, often carrying the puck by himself from behind the goalie to the offensive end.

How do you figure?
JJ, Doughty, Greene, Scuderi and Hickey is all ahead of Fransson as I see it and they are still looking for a PMD.

Well, things have now gone downhill for him. He has been sent to AHL.

Hopefully he can now come to his senses and return to SEL (Luleň of course )

If he does (which he won't) LHF will be a serious contender, what we need is a #1 PMD!

KHL & AHL is crap, stinky towns , stinky living, in KHL you get alot of money, but i┤d rather stay in SEL or Fin league than getting more money. AHL sucks, so long bustravel & the hockey aint much fun. AHL is for uppers only, not to stay there long term.

SEL is IMO next best to NHL, although they might consider smaller rink And/or some rule changes. And of course salary cap. In SEL it┤s 5 big clubs and then there are the rest kind of.
