Except Franson is not that good ,, We saw enough of him with Preds
He was worst dman on ice most nights for Preds
I think part of that issue is that he was burried by depth in a very strong defensive group. Franson played better this year than he ever did with Nashville, just as Hamhuis flourished once he got more responsibility. Franson isn't top pairing, but as a tweener between your 2nd and 3rd pairings, he's a good young piece.
Still...don't think the Hawks do the trade if they think Beach still has any potential.
