When Franson is on, he is a god damn beast physically, offensively, and even defensively (see 2013 Playoffs).

When Franson is off, he is the absolute worst, looks like an AHL defenseman. Unfortunately that was the case for most of last season.

Good luck Leaf fans
Wonder what's being offered and what they might resign him at
Rumors that the Leafs are trying to trade their 8 OA, Kadri, Gardiner etc but they want to keep Franson?

Seriously, can we just fire Nonis before he buries this franchise for the next decade?

His idiotic no look drop pass that resulted in a easy slot goal in game 7 gives me nightmares still, how someone can make that big of gaffle... Like cmon. He made it up by scoring but still.

It's hilarious watching how quick Leaf Nation sours on players, when played in the right situation, Franson is a useful player. As long as he isn't asking for a lot of money, I'd be okay resigning him, and playing him in a bottom pairing / pp specialist role, obviously we'd need to acquire another top four D to take over his minutes, but Franson was a good player for us in 2012-2013, and had 2 timely goals for us in game seven. Plus him being a physical RHD, I cannot see why Leafs brass would trade this guy for a late pick, like some leaf fans are demanding.

You want to fire Nonis based on what rumors are speculating?

You do realize he hasn't actually made any of these rumored deals yet, right?

Leafs strung Franson along with cheap one year deals twice and now they can't. It's either a long term deal and he's gone, so of course they're looking to trade him. They never wanted to pay him.

Good, keep Franson around. He'll bounce back for sure.

Would rather see the Leafs try to acquire Mark Fayne's rights, sign him before the draft, and deal Franson for picks. Use that money to someone a bit more talented in my humble opinion, at least based on what we saw last year.
Id be down with Fayne, but I'm worried he is going to get overpaid in FA, once again because of his handedness if nothing else.

Exactly, right on point sir! Fire him before he makes those deals

I hope not us. We introduced the hockey world to Marc-Andre Bergeron, we certainly don't need a clone of him now.

I would gladly give a 4th round pick for him, assuming he resigned at a reasonable rate. Put him as the 7th D who gets PP time

I remember when they were just rumors that the Leafs were going to make a strong push for Clarkson

Seven years of dead cap space later...

I think we are going to trade him eventually. No need for him to be resigned really. I think the most we'd get is like a 2nd, closer to a third or 4th though (with maybe a prospect thrown in or something). His value would be in a package I think.

Where is the change everyone is demanding?

Basically the entire roster, from the looks of it is coming back. They look to be retaining Dion, they look to be retaining Franson.

Frustrating cheering for a team led by Dave Nonis.

i cant see nonis being interested in moving franson for a 4th round pick. the kid has some defensive issues but from time to time surprises. under the right coaching i think he would be fine. he has 40 point upside. i think it would take at a minimum a 2nd round pick or a player in a similar situation but in a different position.

He can be a good roleplayer on defense if you shelter is ES minutes and play him on the PP. Can rack up some good numbers and help you out.

Instead Carlyle decided to have him play 16:08 estoi/g and 1:38 shtoi/g which is just hilariously stupid. If we had a coach who knew how to use him it wouldn't be so bad, but given that we don't, I'd trade him for a couple of used pucks, RHD or not.

Wouldn't surprise me if he wanted 4 per tbh.

Pretty sure that's what he wanted last time (could be wrong)
