As most of you know, Leafs are not really set in net, and Burke himself has said he would like to add some insurance in net. I think from our team, Gunnarson/Franson would be the #4 defenceman available. Gunnar is a decent puckmover, but he's more suited in a defensive role. Franson is a very good offensive D. But, I don't think you'd want someone with as limited experience as him.
I think most Sharks fans would be good with a Gunnar/Niemi swap; not sure if Leafs fans would be up for that. We don't need the #4 to be offensive, just need him to move the puck effectively and be a good skater.
