Where would he fit exactly? I'm not saying he isn't good enough, but our wing positions are already full. AK isn't much of an upgrade (perhaps not an upgrade at all) on any of the top 6 wings of the Leafs. No point in trading for him.

doubt he gets moved.

leafs are already missing 3 important forwards to injury, if something similar happens with the defense they're going to need franson.

no, he really wouldn't. leafs aren't interested in kostitsyn and habs fans need to stop trying to pawn him off in every trade thread that pops up around here. if he's so fantastic you should be happy to keep him on your team.

There is no reason to trade him for a 3rd or a 4th. This is not a fire sale.

Even with a higher cap hit Gomez is > than Komi.
As bad as Gomez has been he been twice as good as the human pylon Komi.
So a Gomez for Komi is a not a chance from the Habs.

Bozak isn't a throw in, and he's definitely not a player you throw away for nothing. That's ridiculous. I have no idea why he's getting lumped in with Komi in your post.

There's absolutely no way that Bozak decreases the value of the trade.

Gomez is terrible, and wouldn't have a roster spot with Connolly getting into the lineup soon. I don't really care about the value here, they're both terrible right now, but the Leafs can always send Komi to the AHL if necessary. There's no need to get rid of him.

Something around Russell for Franson? From what I gathered, Franson WOULD have a spot on the Leaf's roster if he fit. His playstyle and play quality so far have not fit. Russell would likely fit better, although he may be deemed a redundant version of Liles.

I don't think they need another D, and to be honest I don't think there's any substance to this rumour. I'm sure they'd be looking at Brassard if Columbus called though. Columbus wouldn't be interested in dealing him, but that's who they'd probably want.

That's if the right offer comes along because, as Dreger mentioned, it's still quite early in the season. The tenor of the conversation suggests teams are calling Toronto, inquiring about guys like Gunnarsson and Franson, not that Toronto is actively shopping either player (most notably Gunnarsson, whom they apparently have "no interest" in moving at this time).

If you're a GM, it's your job to listen to offers that come across the table from your colleagues throughout the league. With the depth we have on defense, and kids like Keith Aulie and Jesse Blacker fine-tuning their games for the big club, the Leafs can probably afford to part with some talent or potential on the back-end. What Brian Burke would be looking for in return (perhaps a draft pick if he doesn't see Franson in this team's long-term plans, perhaps a package with a more significant piece) is anybody's guess, really.
QFT.

For those proposing Franson trades, you've gotta ask yourself, what reason do the Leafs have to trade him? Sure, he's the #7 defenceman, but all they need is an injury to a top 6 guy (especially problematic if it's Gunnarsson, Liles or Gardiner) and he's all of a sudden missed.

To acquire a 2nd-3rd round pick? I really don't see the incentive. Better to hang onto him throughout the year, knowing that he will most likely get his chance.

Most of the proposals I've seen here are offering some 2nd-3rd line forward(s), but realistically, where are the Leafs going to play these guys? They're presently missing Connolly, Bozak, and Armstrong; while the only logical guy that could / should be removed from the lineup is Phillipe Dupuis. Franson-for-3rd Line forward may be "fair value", but it doesn't mean that the 3rd line forward is enough of an upgrade on a guy like Frattin to justify making the deal. Centres make even less sense, as the Leafs already have 5 (when healthy), 4 of which are (at least questionable) top 2 guys.

Unless the Leafs can add a winger with size that could reasonably be viewed as an upgrade to Lupul on Kessel's wing, there isn't an obvious move for this team to make.

Id rather give Franson time in Toronto than dump him for a 3rd rounder. The guy played 4 games, and people are calling him ****.. but when kessel plays 8 solid games, people say its only 8 games.. dam haters! If Burke can't get a high 2nd rounder for Franson, he should just keep him..

Oilers 2nd for Franson id do that!

The Ducks 2nd should do it no? I know Burke hates Lowe but loves anything Ducks related.

I really like this trade but would Boston need Lombardi? He would be awfully overpaid as a 4th line center.

I agree that Brassard would be the piece that Toronto wants, but I don't think a deal for him could be swung while Franson is a piece. It'd have to be for an established defenseman that would have an immediate impact on the Jacket's blueline.

So you're right.

Most of these proposals are pretty laughable, certainly a few exceptions. This guy won't be traded for a pick. He's the number 6/7 D, so what? He's making 800k and is an RFA when his deal expires. Currently a bottom pairing D man who is young and has top 4 upside. Furthermore Liles is a UFA after this year and not likely to be re-signed if Gardiner keeps up his play. I have no doubt Franson is available, but if a deal doesn't help this team improve why the hell would the Leafs make it. 3rd/4th round picks? Get out.

TL;DR Leafs aren't selling this kid off, but they're open to trading him if they can address a need.

Doubt that there's really all that much interest for Toronto to move Franson. They just got him, he's still relatively young, he's not that good anyway, and I doubt that the proposals are all that great.

Toronto won't gain anything substantial unless he's a throw-in in a package for an impact player.

This is great. Toronto fans were so pumped about getting him, even though us Preds fans told them he wasn't Jesus. Too bad for Cody though. I've met him and his mother and sister and they were all very friendly.

some toronto fans are still pumped to have him. keep on thinking a trade rumour is "great" and somehow justifies trading him. considering what toronto paid for him and lombardi, somehow i doubt nashville fans should be laughing here. as much as i hate the whole "who won?" nonsense when it comes to trades, this one is working out just fine for toronto.
