The question is "what would it cost".
I would not be willing to move much because realistically he is done after this year. A third and fifth next year and a conditional low pick the year after if he does indeed stay on seems reasonable to me. They could also put in a prospect like a Shields who may have some offensive potential but is certainly not top flight.

Francis would not bring a bid return to the 'canes. The team has said they would trade him anywhere he wants to go. I can't see him bringing more than a draft pick back. He would be a huge asset to any team trying to go deep in the playoffs.
