First, let's get this out of the way... I don't want to trade Cody Franson. He's a handsome man and good hockey player and I'd love to have him stick around Toronto for the forseeable future. That being said, even more than not wanting to trade him do I not want him to walk for nothing at the end of the season. 

So what can you get for him? At first, I dreamed of a first round pick, or maybe a second and a good prospect. Or maybe like, a really great prospect? That'd be super.

But I also have to consider that Franson is just a rental (for now), and that the market could be saturated with top four defencemen (Keith Yandle, Zbynek Michalek, Tyler Myers, etc.), and that these factors could hurt Franson's trade value.

There are a lot of questions being asked in the photo above. David Clarkson is asking the referee "Why are you giving me a penalty? Why can't I sit on this guy?, while Matt Read is asking anyone who will listen "Why is this guy sitting on me? Why are the Leafs so, so bad?"
