I thought Franson was okay in Nashville, but he really hasn't looked good in Toronto. Maybe he was being sheltered in Nashville. Maybe I only saw him play a few times and he played well in those games.
...I was a Franson fan...wanted us to make an offer last year for him to put on our 3rd pairing/2nd PP...then I watched him completely bag last year...thank the Hockey Gods Josh blocked that one last shot for us...

ACTUALLY IT WAS for 2 PLAYERS AND A PICK..but glad Josh spurred the Leafs.....we can use his 2nd on someone else in a trade etc...we got Gilbert and a 2nd for Josh....saved cap which might come on handy for another new player etc.
Make no mistake, the LEAFS have been one of the worst teams in the league since Franson came on board, I personally think Franson is way better than Gorges, I never liked Gorges, too much RAH, RAH, RAH and over rated like crazy!!! He was basically a through in, in the Rivet deal.
