Why? look at his numbers, they dont lie.

The only reason Dion catches so much flak is because of the uniform he wears.

To be honest I am reluctant to trade any of the D without this shortened season to determine how the team plays in Carlyle's system. Even Komi. Decisions made may be regrettable.

One of the main reasons I'm happy the lock out ended is to see how Detroit does without Lidstrom leading their back end. Going to be interesting for sure.

In this situation we would benefit - the team would trade said player to us, along with compensation for the amnesty (ie, picks, prospects, or players) and we would subsequently buy the player out, should be chose to.
I'm not worrying. NHL will find the way to strip us off all those picks and players and prospect, suspending people indefinitely and cancelling picks for bogus reasons so we cannot buy any good player for money.

Some people are just crazy. Phaneuf gets hated because of the C..

People here think because he's captain, he has to get the Leafs into the playoffs, even if the team sucks at key positions.

Come on the Leafs can't draft a guy in the 2nd rd that can play. Franson has an upside and it's up the coaching staff to get it out of him.

If Detroit wants to be silly and suggest we would give up Franson for a 3rd or 4th round pick?! I suggest Franson is available for Jimmy Howard.... that's where I would start and see if they were willing to add more pieces to the trade....because I would be willing...

We don't have a very deep defense this year and most of our up and coming guys are not quite ready for the NHL. A third is probably "fair" return at this point... but I'm of the opinion that Franson is much better than he has shown. Last year was just a numbers game and he lost... I think he establishes himself as a regular and has a good year. A third will look like highway robbery in a few years.

My line of thought is if Detroit wants a player, don't trade him

Drafted in the 3rd round, now at the age of 25 with seven years of development and 2 nhl seasons. Detroit figures, yeah we'll maybe give you a 3rd or 4th

Can't argue with that, if they asked we must have stumbled onto something. Then again Nashville did the drafting.
