At least sort of fill the gap.

Trading away Franzen would instead create a bit of a gap in DRWs offense. I wouldnt throw away Franzen for peanuts, I would like some real difference maker for DRW and that is another top pairing defensmen. DRW has one as it now (at best...) and that should be Kronwall I guess but he isnt really a guy you can build great defense around, he just not THAT good. Would we at get atleast someone around Kronwalls level (but different perhaps more defensive minded) that might do.

I rather get one difference making D-man for Franzen + average players, than a ******** of average or not needed players for just Franzen.
No teams with difference making defencemen are looking to trade them. Best bet might be to buy low on Markov and hope he can stay healthy.
