Leafs + Chi/Fla? (defenseman to chicago?)a

It is widely believed that chicago is looking for a defenseman and a veteran center. Well earlier this morning Brian Burke tweeted the following:

@LeafsBB20
Brian Burke
Looking forward to the AHL Outdoor Classic between the Marlies and Bulldogs today at Ivor Wynne Stadium!

@LeafsBB20
Brian Burke
Stuck in Chicago. Flight delay. Bad storm. Will not make the AHL Classic now. Go Marlies!

These tweets lead me to believe he was in chicago last night for the Hawks v Panthers game to possibly scout a player or two being discussed in a possible deal. Leafs have plenty of depth at defense and most likely have a piece that chicago covets.

Any idea what Toronto could be looking at and is there anything in blue and white that chicago fans would be interested in.

Pretty much everything the Hawks won't trade.

Could just be stuck in Chicago because he was connecting there. It is a major US hub.

Is that a layover stop from Anaheim?

I thought Chicago needed centermen and defencemen? Could Lombardi and Franson/Aulie fetch a first round pick? It'll be a bottom five/ten pick.

He is obviously looking to reacquire Stalberg and Hayes.

Lombardi is having horrid year and has another year at 3.5M cap hit while Aulie/Franson are #6 dmen who really offer nothing of majori mprovement to Hawks

So no way you get 1st rounder for that package

Maybe Frolik + Lepisto

Leafs are 1 point back of FLA. Both looking to make the playoffs for the first time in years. I doubt either one of them wants to "help" the other team at this point as they're both battling for 8th

Burke would be scouting a player. TML does have what the Hawks want to add for another cup.

Franson is not a #6 defenseman, sorry to burst your bubble.

Franson has actually been playing like a top 4 while Aulie is playing like he wants to be send down in the AHL. Not long ago Burke said that only Dion is untouchable in the blue line but Franson is alomst becoming one as well.

maybe they wouldnt get a first from the hawks because it doesnt suit there needs but the package is still worth a late first. I for one wouldnt do it from leafs pov, moving aulie or franson for a late first is a sideways move at best , You have to wait develop this player and hope he turns out. Yes Lombardi hasnt got great numbers but hes still a servicable player for a playoff running team he has great speed and isnt affraid to go after the puck. He'd be a fine 3rd line player for a team with that being said he prolly brings a 4th at best back

Franson probably has been the leafs best defenseman of late. Most likely untouchable.

Personally hoping its something around Bolland + Schenn, however i highly doubt that. I wouldnt be suprised if Chi town is interested in Holzer

So it's evident you haven't watched much, if at all.

Franson, a 6 D?

I'd like Gunnar or Franson from the Leafs...no forwards really interest the Hawks I think.

Connolly for Bickell

Leafs will NOT move Franson, he is an untouchable unless he is in a package for a #1 top line talent

The Leafs can take Bickell or give us Gunnarsoon or Franson in a deal. I do not want any of the realistic forward options from Toronto except maybe Kulemin? He was better last season, so maybe his value fell. He's good in his own end.

Franson a #6? , He`s not available so don`t even ask. Aulie is a AHL fodder at the moment but could help a team tank if anyone is interested

Wasn't long ago Franson looked like #### and Leaf fans weren't that enthused with him

Guess his game has come along lately but he was a #6 in Nashville and wasn't all that good so I doubt he will be of much an upgrade to Hawks in there playoff hopes

See no fit unless Toronto takes Frolik in a deal but even then Frolik isn't having as bad a year as Lombardi nor is he as costly

Nope, we'll just pay the buyout for Olesz. Frolik, even though pretty terrible on offense, is cheaper and a better option than Lombardi for the Blackhawks.
