One of my favourite photo's from last season:

I hope Franson plays for us this year. He's a solid, young player who, if he improved his defensive game a bit, could be top four.

If they play him alongside Grabo and Macarthur/Kulemin I think he might be able to breakout. Like a line of JVR-Grabo-Kulemin or something for example can provide alot of secondary scoring, 2 way play and can play a bit physical too.

TBH I'd rather see him with Connolly and Kulemin or Kadri and Kulemin. I think that'll work best.

I hope so too. I personally think he already is a top-4. He's smart, strong, physical, good shot, etc.

Didn't give him a fair opportunity really, hopefully he gets it now.

So many players I want but I won't be able to get them all

Like I'm trying to think who I would take late first/2nd/3rd round but since it's my first draft I don't know if they will be around haha. Maybe I should do some mock ones...

Something like:

Lupul-Bozak-Kessel
Kulemin-Grabo-Macarthur
JVR-Connolly/Kadri-Frattin
Komarov-McClement-Brown

Iunno.

Too many line combos. Our 2nd and 3rd lines will include any of the following:
Grabo
JVR
Kulemin
MacArthur
Frattin
Kadri
Bozak
Connolly

Nobody is really set in stone to be playing together too among those players.

Nah, Burke said they wanted to go with something more of a top 9 bottom 3.

Lupul - Bozak - Kessel
JVR - Connolly - Kulemin
MacArthur - Grabovski - Frattin
Komarov - McClement - Brown

Interchange Grabo and Connolly

His defensive game was suspect at times.

But I agree, I remember a few times last year when he absolutely manhandled other players. He's deceptively strong for a guy who looks lanky.

His outlet pass was also kind of meh. It's hit or miss, kind of. I recall several times that he just made boneheaded outlet passes. Probably had something to do with the amount of pressure he was under ('If I **** up I'll be in the press box for two weeks!').

He was totally jerked around, it was ridiculous. He was very noticeable when he played, and yeah, his shot is an absolute beauty.

I'm REALLY starting to like our top 9 wingers:

Lupul, Kessel, Kulemin, Macarthur, JVR, Frattin. Looks to be pretty strong.

Yeah your assessment is probably more accurate (I think his defense was fine - but you're not alone in thinking it was suspect) I mean when he goes into a corner with a guy, it's a thing of beauty. Just completely man-handles him.

It can't come soon enough.

If he does I could see Kadri being tried as a third line secondary scoring Centre so something like:

Kulemin/JVR-Kadri-Frattin or something.
