Apple Juice Posted May 26, 2015 Share Posted May 26, 2015 Pair with Tanev from day 1 please. Franson and Tanev are both right handed, fyi so that's not gonna happen. I haven't seen him play a lot so hard to give much on the eye test but his advanced stats are excellent. Everyone says how bad he is defensively but his stats tell a different story. Right shot, offensive D-man, 6'5" but doesn't really use his size. TO was a hard place for him because almost every D man they have is an offensive D man so he didn't really get an appropriate partner. Every D man he was paired with though had worse corsi without him. The only defenceman who can be considered an offensive D man is Morgan Rielly. Gardiner, Phaneuf, Robidas, Polak are more defensively minded or in Gardiner's case, a two way defenceman. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
