On top of that, all 3 of those guys are LHD and Franson is a RHD and yet you "don't see a spot for him"?

Your suggestion that we move him for a prospect (leaving Phaneuf and Gunnar as our only two veteran D) would also mean missing the playoffs next year. You can't replace his 28 points from the blue line with NOTHING.

Unbelievable.


Major overreaction to an incorrect assumption on the Leafs cap situation on your part.
The concern is the complete lack of defensive awareness within the top 4. You can't have a top 4 where the teams only defensive strength is chasing down breakaways. And it isn't a "Major overreaction to an incorrect assumption". Jonas Siegel was on TSN Radio this morning and asserted that trading Cody Franson has been batted around by Leafs head office.
