The tricky part is the 1st, if the Leafs bomb this season then it could be a decent deal for Calgary, otherwise I don't think Giordano (who certainly isn't on the block and who Calgary has no incentive to trade) for Franson + has the makings of a legitimate deal. And if the Leafs need to clear Liles contract for Kadri that should be done in a separate deal, rather than getting lumped in with this one.
Giving up a first could be worth it to the Leafs if it means having extra cap space next season to resign Kessel/Phaneuf/Reimer. Calgary would be doing Toronto a huge favor by taking Fransons(future) and Liles' contracts off their hands.
