Yeah honestly just wanted to see a source for it, hadn't come across one personally and logically considering the Bruin's record I wouldn't think they would have been. Should have been included with the original post to back up the subject of the rumor thread so there's some information to go off of. But the fact still remains and I stand by it, dumping Franzen for a late 1st draft pick is among the last things we need to be focusing on, bringing in one or two more defensemen is.
Regardless thanks for posting up the link DRW93 and giving us some sort of basis to go by to validate the thread. Franzen is back tonight, let's see how the next few games go for our leading scorer from last season.
You're very welcome. I agree, should've had a link in the OP. I also agree that trading Franzen shouldn't be on Kenny's mind. Finding a top-tier, two-way defenseman and a reliable scorer is what should be occupying his time. Shopping Franzen or Filpulla or whatever other nonsense the media had dreamed up would be going straight into seller mode. This is NOT the time to become a seller. There is real talent on this team and they have proven they can win against the best even with a depleted lineup. We own wins against St. Louis, Nashville and Vancouver and have also taken Chicago to OT. This team needs a full, healthy roster and some more firepower both up front and on the back end. Giving up now would be foolish.
