Sure it does. Probably 1M less we can offer Franson. If Franson isn't there, Rielly replaces him most likely.
Well we needed an extra body anyways with Clarkson suspended. Really signing Franson became impossible until that suspension lifts and we can send someone down to lower the amount we're sitting below the cap. Not like Raymond is likely to get much more than it'd cost to keep a prospect up.
Anyways a solid signing. He's looked good and more than ever we need an extra body with that skillset.
