Edmonton is in position to offersheet either of them. Toronto will likely sign Mark Fraser as the more unheralded guy at around 1.75-2.25M.
Gardiner will come in at 4M when his deal is up next year too. Phaneuf - is likely to stay in Toronto.
Liles is better than N. Schultz and Potter. I'd be willing to take him on as a bottom pairing guy to work the PP with J. Schultz. He's just not been the right fit in Toronto.
My ideal would be Gunnarsson though. Underrated and could be paired with Klefbom for a decade.
An OS against Toronto for one of these guys makes little sense. The Leafs will match any reasonable offer so for it to be succesful you need to way over pay. Franson and Gunnaarsson are not the guys to break the bank for.
