Of course, that has yet to happen and probably won't materialize for at least a season or two or three. It's not as if he's set the world ablaze for a perennial contender, we need to keep raising the bar.

In the case he is dealt, I think he would command a pretty decent return considering he's got a great contract and a lot of teams would love a good #3C. Just saying.
All of those centers project to be top six forwards with the exception of Nelson who could pan out to be a third line scorer at either center or wing.

Frans is a third liner and a damn good one. Unless someone steps in and straight up out performs him, he will be staying.
