1(I'm looking specifically at a team that could use a 2nd pairing D man):

Those are the teams that can use a top 4 D man, IMO. However, I'd instantly want my GM fired if he wasn't asking about Franson, as a GM should ALWAYS be trying to improve his team.

Ducks if they move a small amount of salary.
Flames, easily.
Avs, easily.
Panthers, easily.
Wild, no.
Islanders, easily.
Rangers, no.
Flyers, no.

However, I see the Flames with mild to little interest. The Avalanche and Ducks could be interested, depending on the faith each team has in their prospects. The Avs have Barrie ready, and the Ducks have Sbisa. Panthers and Islanders are both wild cards, they have players like Weaver and Street in their top 4 (to my regard), both would be replaced by Franson.

3) Ducks have good forward prospects. Avalanche have some nice ones.

In my hypothetical deal, if I were Nonis and the Avs were looking, I'd want Hishon+, I wouldn't expect the + to be big.
