That's why Mike Green was smart. He didn't get the term he wanted so instead he chose a team which would be a good fit for his style of game. Plus he gets to make the same yearly salary he was making in Washington. Now Franson is going to have to accept a much lesser deal because he over estimated his value and misread the market.
Now the Wings can sign Franson for 4 mill,and trade Ericsson for a 4th rounder and kindl for a 7th.
