Francis has been my favorite player for years. He is easily the most underrated player in NHL history, if not one of the most underrated players in the history of team sport. Anyone wanna join me at his Hall of Fame induction in five years? I'm out to prove I've got nothing to prove Promote this thread!

He was one of those guys always great to watch. A real leader without being an attention-seeker. It was both a shock and a pleasure to see him in a Leaf uniform in 2004.

Although I was expecting him to retire, I was kind of hoping he'd come back to Pittsburgh to be our checking center.

It was rumoured before the lockout that Pittsburgh made him an offer. Would have been awesome to see him with the Pens in his final season.
The Memorial Cup Tourny was great, fantastic goaltending from the 67's....the fall of the defending champs, Sidney Crosby's one line team, and the London Knights. Probably the best junior team of all time, but jeez, could Corey Perry dive anymore????
