Franson walked around....
1 month ago on Game Day: Maple Leafs at Florida Panthers (7:30 p.m., SNet)
Are the cameras rentals? Each camera has a very different brightness/contrast level, and the camera in the Leafs end seems to be zoomed in more?
Definitely a guy, probably stoned, came up with that idea...I know I have had similar'
McLearn, Smitheson, and Orr....because it's training camp?
Kessel just used his hip to force a much larger D'man off the puck...wow!
If they go long enough without a shot on Thomas, he might just up and leave...then it's goal time!
Because of the empty seats, have the cameramen moved closer...cameras seem to be on zoom?
@The Truth Hurts@Cosmos1973@LeafFan15@TheCanucksnaphookRight...as a PP specialist...which he is very good at, and he is an overall decent OFF D'man...not a top tier, but a solid 3rd pairing guy. If we had another top 2/4 D'man, we probably would not be on Franson as much...but he is forced to play up...Reilly will be above him next season I would think, and if Nonis can get another top 4...but then it all depends on the type of $ Franson wants...I am not betting on him being back.

@LeafFan15@Cosmos1973@The Truth Hurts@TheCanucksnaphook...but remember, Reilly is a rookie...Jake is really a 2nd year player...Franson had played 4 seasons, almost 300 games...he needs to not be making these mistakes as much. Phaneuf does not...neither did Liles, and even Gunnarson doesn't (although he has not been great recently - he has been solid for a few years). Maybe Franson is what he is...we all hoped for more, but that is due a lot to his 'physical' paper stats...and PP prowess....
@LeafFan15@The Truth Hurts@TheCanucksnaphook@Cosmos1973If everytime he makes a mistake, it ends up in the back of the net...that is more than bad luck, that is just plain bad. Franson is what he is...a 3rd pairing D'man, and PP specialist...hurt or not. Remember, Luke Schenn looked good in his first year...some players can look good for a season, and then regress to their mean. On paper, he looks the part, just not playing it this year...hope it improves.
@The Truth Hurts@Cosmos1973Unless his reach is the width of the entire ice, stil not buying it. I will look for his Chara-like skills tonight...maybe he's been saving them for this game against Florida?
@The Truth Hurts@Cosmos1973Unless Gleason is not just a defensemen, but also a world renowned geneticist, and can splice Franson with Usain Bolt, nothing Gleason is going to do will improve Franson's 'low motility'...or is that mobility?
Ha, reading Gordie Stellick's article on Sportsnet (http://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/nhl/how-the-leafs-have-traded-their-way-to-success/) about the Leafs, and I read this bit of pure humour in the Comments section....

is true. franson is a big part of the back end and he's having a solid
season. I hope the Leafs can pay him what he deserves Reply · 1 · Like · 16 hours ago
Wow, is Matt even watching the same games I am?!?
That Bernier save is why he's staying in net for the remainder of the season!
