I see no reason to trade him away. At least not for a mid round pick.
Franson's got a ton of potential and would likely excel with a structured team like the Red Wings.
Problem is, we're already woefully thin on the blueline to begin with. Unless the Red Wings wanted to part with a forward, and we were going to move a guy like MacArthur for an equivalent level defenceman, then I don't see a deal to be made here.
We don't have much depth in our NHL defense at the moment, so I don't see us moving Franson. If a couple of the AHL guys can show they are NHL caliber, then I think we might take offers for him. Won't happen for a mid pick though. Has be a 2nd at least.
This is way more realistic than Bogosian. I think could be an excellent fit. 1st round pick from Detroit? No chance. Maybe a mid round pick and Jan Mursak, or just a second rounder. Detroit won't be pulling another Quincey deal so soon.
Another one of the players that I don't see the Leafs in any rush to get rid of. It would probably take a decent 2nd round pick or he might be a useful chip in a trade package. He's sort of an intriguing player, so I think we kick his tires some more.
Consistency, it is the same problem he had down in Milwaukee when making his way through the Preds system. He has lots of raw tools, but I just don't see him putting them together and he isn't worth a first or second round pick at this point. Realistically he isn't that much different than Kindl and people laugh if Wings fans even hinted at a first or second round pick. He does somewhat fit a need especially his right handed shot for Detroit but the asking price of Leafs fans in this thread isn't something the Wings would consider paying in my opinion.
