If you're saying Franson=Weber, make a poll on the forum. You'll get good results.

I dont care about Weber. Healthy scratches on lottery teams suck. Weber is one, Franson is one. At least we didnt have to take a cap dump to acquire our crap. (cap dump... get it ?)

lol this now. Seguin already has a cup ring and Dougie will play his first NHL playoff game before Kessel plays his first as a Leaf (actually he'll probably never play one at all). Just letting you know.

I know it is risky and asking a lot. That said he is 22 and going to get every opportunity to sink or swim this year with or without JML on our roster.

94.2% of our goals are generated by anyone getting the puck to Phil, lupul or Grabo anywhere on the ice. PMD are totally overrated. Gunnar and Dion move the puck well enough for that.

Only mistake he made, and we got a top 5 goal-scorer. Gomez for McD, All of your signings(Cammy ring a bell?), saying DD is an actual 1st line C, etc. (and we don't lie about Bozak)

Yea because Burkie's signings were great (LACK ring a bell ?).

The A went to Habs, and they are all done in 1 or 2 years.. yet you have people like Gionta, Gomez, Kaberle, Bourque and your '#1 d-man' is injured more than he plays.

I've been a big supporter of Franson to Minny for a while now. I'd like to see it happen. Not sure what we'd have to give up though.

But wait. As long as they are french-speaking, they're allowed on the team. Even if they are good but not able to speak French, Habs: YOU BE FRENCH SPEAKING, Player/Coach: no, Habs: GET OUT!!

Throw an offer out. I'd obviously want Franson+ for Clutterbuck, but it's been nixed by some fans.

We gave Lebda for Lombardi ... and Franson.
Armstrong did not work out.
Connolly is mah .. pretty useful but overpaid. No one really cares.
Komi is by far the worst, but was most likely a fair price coming off the year he had.

You gave McD for Gomez. ..

Ya ... Our blunders cost a few bucks .. Your's cost you McD.
Here in Toronto we still have cap space and are not a struggling team like your habs, So a bad contract here and there just does not matter much.

Leafs are not a struggling team.

Actually Franson at his low salary would be a good acquisition for Fletcher. Leafs should probably wait until camp is wrapping up to make sure they'll still have sufficient NHL capable d-men heading into the season.

We have a good base, but only have 2 holes that are open, albeit it being the hardest to fill in 1G, and 1C. Yet you don't have a base imo.

Don't see how there is someone being rejected.. Although you have to much built-up rage that you must use it on Leafs and Habs fans as well.

So you are admitting that you are trolling? That's nice, whatever. Let it go, grow up, and let people actually discuss hockey. Seeing you and other people bicker is an annoyance to people that actually have things to contribute.

You need to watch a little more hockey and be a little less biased. Franson is a good player. Don't bash him because he was caught behind a mess in Toronto.

I don't think Franson, just by himself, is available right now. After dealing Schenn, we have spots open for two of Franson/Komi/Holzer. Holzer hasn't done **** in the NHL yet, and unless he can show he belongs, we will need to keep Franson.

I think the only way he's dealt is if one of the following happens:

1) Contract negotiations go sour
2) He is part of a bigger package for a top 6 F

If it's true that Franson is unhappy as a Leaf, then maybe he should move on.

As to what the Leafs could get for him in a trade, the return probably wouldn't be in any way significant.

I think many will be surprised at the value Franson has. All the tools are there and when he was played he played well. If it wasn't for a horrible signing of Komisarek they would be playing him. I think he finds his was to another team via trade and has a very good career. Very capable defender.

Yes, bc a list of 20 unlikely trades by ONE user, posting over and over again is representative with the fan base.
