lol - I watch 82 Leafs games a year... Marchenko is already more physical than Franson... I have no idea who started the notion that Franson is a physical player. Big does not mean physical.
Anyone is physical to wings fans
No really though, it's probably because of his hit total.. which was 177 this past season & he led all d men the year before with 282.
The closest wings d man last year was actually ericsson, with 114.
I'm not trying to advocate that hits are the only thing to playing a physical game but they do give you some kind of indication as to how physical a player is.
