Leafs Roster analysis - Defense - Cody Franson

I will be going through our roster and injured players and we will determine the players role... i.e Kessel (Elite winger) vs (1A winger) vs (1B winger) vs (2A winger)

This is not determining their role for the team, but what they're capable of on a playoff team. I'll only be putting what in my mind are "realistic" options.

Term definitions:

Elite: Top 5 in their position
1A: 1st line/1st pairing/#1 Goalie
1B: Able to fill in 1st line/1st pairing/Average Starter
2A: 2nd line/2nd pairing/Back-up
2B: Able to fill in 2nd line/2nd pairing/Too good for AHL Starter but not proven
3A: 3rd line/3rd pairing
3B Able to fill in 3rd line/3rd pairing
4A 4th line
4B: Able to fill in 4th line
Scratch: 13th player/7th dman
AHL player: Self explanatory

I'll be starting from the net out.

Goaltending

James Reimer 1B
Ben Scrivens 2A

Defense

Cody Franson
Mark Fraser
Jake Gardiner
Carl Gunnarsson
Korbinian Holzer
Mike Komisarek
Michael Kostka
John-Michael Liles
Dion Phaneuf

Forwards

Tyler Bozak
Mike Brown
Matt Frattin
Mikhail Grabovski
Nazem Kadri
Phil Kessel
Leo Komarov
Nikolai Kulemin
Joffrey Lupul
Clarke MacArthur
Jay Mcclement
Frazer McLaren
Colton Orr
David Steckel
James Van Riemsdyk

Keep me aware of errors please.

Gards is not a roster player yet. Reimer/Scrivens are a great tandem that is right up there league wide in save percentage,and goals against average. 1A,1B, OR whatever means nothing as long as they get the job done.

Might as well remove brown too.

I just have him up there because, well he's Gardiner. I'd still like to have him up there to see where he is perceived by the fanbase.

ok then. Franson has to be seen as a 2a imo. He has played awsome.

Just for clarification, is this potential or current skill/ability?

I voted 2a but if it's the latter I vote 3a.

It is currently, but it's hard not to think about potential when thinking about guys like him, Gardiner, Kadri etc.

I voted 2B.

I'm a huge fan of Franson and I hope we re-sign him for a few years.

2B for me. I like how he can put out offensively, but also he's learning to use his size a lot more under Carlyle.

Again with this 1a or 1b stuff, he's either a top pairing, mid pairing or bottom pairing guy. To me, right now he works best as a bottom pairing guy, he has yet to be put in a top 4 role, I don't know but I dont think he has the footspeed or defensive prowness to handle top 4 minutes.

This. Voted 3A.

I think these threads are a great idea btw, OP

"This is not determining their role for the team, but what they're capable of on a playoff team" should be BIG and bold

I'm not spamming, it's a poll with different players each time.

2A. He has been solid offensively and defensively (aside from last game)

Will only get better. (I don't think he will be a top paring damn, just a solid all around top 4 dman, and has demonstrated that already)

Oh crap, I thought 3b meant #3 defenseman on team.

I think he is a top 4D though

He's a 3A based on current performance, but has been trending upwards all year, so I think I have him as a 2B

Franson is the 6th highest scoring Dman in hockey at the moment.
