No point in getting worked up over potentially losing Franson either. He's been a #5 d-man who specializes on the PP, totally replaceable. He could be useful to a team who needs help in that regard but the fortunately for the Leafs they have Phaneuf, Gardiner, Liles, and Rielly (should he make the cut) who can fill the void he leaves behind. The Leafs are in an envious position here.
Gardiner, Franson, and Grabo were all within 10 ft of Bergeron when he scored the OT goal that ended the Leafs season.

Ellotte Friedman of CBC said something interesting to the point of he would be not surprised if any of those players are not back with the Leafs in the near future.

1 player is gone, 2 more to go?
