@leafmealone  Also what I meant in my initial post was that, since Franson would be a rental he may not get the biggest return. Dion and Gardiner will get bigger returns (I am just assuming of course) That being the case re-sign Franson (he can still be traded) and see what he can really do, and at the same time it frees up around $20M in cap space over the course of the next 5 years

@leafmealone @FrankFerrant @Mind Bomb True. But these are different cases. Big right handed sturdy defencemen are hard to find, and he is just hitting his stride now. Clarkson on the other hand... don't even get me started.

It's not even about what other teams may pay him it's just the unfortunate cost high-end players demand nowadays. Look at Marc Staal that guy stinks and he got 5.4? In a perfect world I give Franson 4.8 but that's just not what the NHL is anymore.

If you ask me almost every player in the league is overpaid by about 2 mill.

@mr_hanie that's a pretty strong assumption bud. the best thing to do is wait till the deadline and draft day. stay the course for now.

@Top Jimmy You know what though I can see Burke's thought process. Toronto was just supposed to be their usual mediocre selves once Kessel was acquired

@ProfessorRance I'd rather we have tanked for Stamkos or Tavares when we had the chance. That should have been the game-plan once JFJ was fired.

Is Franson really going to get 6 mill in FA? Call me crazy but I'd rather have Franson @ 6 for 5 instead of Phaneuf @ 7 for 6 more. Trade Dion and Gardiner re-sign the Fran man. But then again if a team offers something worthwhile he can go (goes for anyone not named Leo Komarov).

I think Franson and Lupul are the two guys on this team with their heads on straight when it comes to adversity and the comical media around here.

@MaxwellHowe @FrankFerrant lol you're right I was just excited to finally see that line put together on paper it has potential but we'll see. I don't want the team winning more than like 1 game per week anyways.

Kessel didn't even score in the All-Star Game. What a bum. And he was playing with Giroux and Kane. Please tell me why people think he is so good and would be better on another team like he couldn't even score in the All-Star game, who would trade for him?!

That was sarcasm.

At this point I am convinced that we keep Phil but trade Dion Franson and Gardiner. Yes. Half of our D. Also trade Reimer, Bozak and maybe Lupul if the price is right.

@MLHS_Brown  Well Phaneuf for O'Rielly kind of makes sense given that O'Rielly is gonna want $6M + so the salaries are similar.

Acquire picks and re-construct the "core" that's what I want to see. Truly no player should be untouchable. There's guys I would like to see stick around... but anything to make this team better because we all know it ain't happening overnight. 5 year plan begins again!

@Cameron19 @FrankFerrant O'Reilly holds all the power, which scares me. He can demand 7 mill for 5 years potentially... and he might just be a 50 point 2 way centre for the rest of his career.

@Cameron19 Do you think O'Reilly is gonna be wanting another raise? He definitely isn't worth the  6 mill he's getting now in my opinion.

Also do you think we could trade Clarkson if we throw in a pick or prospect?

@dlb, just dlb

2004: No first round pick (traded to Calgary from NYR from us for Brian Leetch)(Kris Chucko)
2005: Andrew Cogliano (we took Rask...)
2006: Chris Stewart (Tlusty)
2007: No first round pick it was traded to SJ for Toskala + Mark Bell (who is an Ontario boy).
2008: Josh Bailey or Cody Hodgson (Schenn)
2009: Kadri is from London ONT 
2010: No pick. Traded to Boston for Kessel (Seguin - Ontario)
2011: No pick. Traded to Boston (Hamilton - Ontario) but the pick we got from ANA Matt Puempel (Biggs) and then we took Percy who is also an Ontario boy
2012: Slater Koekkoek or Cody Ceci (We took Rielly but he's from the West)
2013: Jason Dickinson (We took Gauthier)
2014: Nick Ritchie (Nylander)


Hockey is a diverse game players play wherever there is ice, which is a lot of places in the world. The Leafs are a stupid prideful organization and they screwed themselves. They could have really tanked when they fired JFJ traded the "Muskoka" 5 and gone for Stamkos or Tavares and start fresh if the right owners had been in place. 

Who cares where a player is born and what style they play. You take the best players always, not based on geography and an assumed style of play.

Gardiner - Robidas
