I think Franson not making a definate spot with the Leafs out of camp pretty well shows that the return we got for him (the ability to dump Lombardi) was pretty much the best we were going to get for him.
But I'm sure I'll skim through and read bickering back and forth for another 4 or 5 pages about how we were going to get something of value to us for him and Poile just threw him away without trying. I'm happier with unloading Lombardi's contract and using Franson as the throw in than I would have been had we shipped Franson off for a 4th round pick (hypothetical).
We don't know the offers/phone calls/propositions made.
