I personally feel like the Leafs are best continuing to wait out Franson.
It will give them a chance to get Rielly his 9 games (minimum), Liles will have a chance to win back his top PP spot (he was on a 50 point pace prior to that concussion when he was on the top unit with Phaneuf so I wouldn't bet against him getting his job back from Franson) and others like Holzer/Brennan will get a chance to show their stuff instead of being exposed to waivers.
Every team around the league is still optimistic their prospects can make the jump. Reality will set in for a lot of teams that their players aren't ready or might never be 5-10 games into the season and calls to Nonis about Franson will increase. For the most part injuries have also not set in. Every year Dmen are the number desired assets once the season gets going.
