3.5 million is nothing for us so it also gives us an advantage.

You don't have to convince me that we made a great trade. I'd do it again in a heartbeat.

I'm just saying let's not get carried away. Franson is somewhere between our 5th-7th defenceman and might remain that way.

I don't think Poile made a good trade but he's not an idiot. He didn't give us the second coming of Pronger for free.

Hate to say it but i think gunnar will get sat quite a bit, maybe even franson but that might be a stretch. IMO komi will not see the bench that often, even if it is what should happen

I think what people forget is that the major thing holding the kid back is skating and for what it's worth, skating isn't something that you're born with.

Franson is still young there's still every chance in the world for this kid to go and join up with Boyle or someone to work on his skating in the offseason. He seems to have good defensive sense along with great offensive skills just lacks will to hit/skate hard.

I envision Franson as a right handed Coburn.

I've had a huge man crush on Cody for a long time, I love his potential.
Can't wait to see him play this year!

Is it wrong of me to think of him like a Tyler Myers lite?
Him and Schenn can be the two new towers of defense like Schenn and Myers were in the WHL. Makes me very happy.

Must hold back....expectations....

Think he will try to do some more salary dump + good prospect/player or will he try to aquire an over-priced good player like lecavalier? ... I'm thinking something has to be done... Oh I'm so excited now
Lecavalier? Nooooo way! Nuh uh! No sir! Pass on that!
First off, he's still making 7.7 mil per season for the next 8 seasons. Secondly, he's not worth that much money. Thirdly, he has a no movement clause. Tampa is stuck with that nasty contract for a very long time.
