Future Free Agents: Cody Franson

After two disappointing seasons in Buffalo, Cody Franson is headed back to the free agent market. He didn’t really gel with the Sabres, as you can see based on his worse-than-usual production, but Franson is still the same big, skilled defenceman who can shoot bombs from the point, making him an attractive option for many teams in need…
