Poll: Should the Reign bring back Jon Francisco?

The rundown on center Jon Francisco:

2010-11 stats (career): 4 goals, 5 points, 2 penalty minutes, -1 rating in 12 games.

Quote: “If I can’t be an effective player, I don’t want to be there.”

Pros: Francisco, who has been with the Reign from Day 1, was still an effective all-around player before suffering a season-ending knee injury in November. The captain in 2008-09 and ’09-10, Francisco defines the best qualities of a leader, infecting others with his positive attitude and dedication.

Cons: There’s no guarantee Francisco wants to come back, and there’s no telling what kind of player he’ll be at age 30 coming off a major injury. 2011-12 would basically be a bonus season for a player who expected to be retired by now.
