There's been a lot of talk - and I mean a lot of talk - about the possibility of Cody Franson being traded. Arguably the Leafs' best defender this season, Franson becomes an unrestricted free agent this offseason, and the Leafs only have so much cap space available. As in, not nearly enough cap space available for what Franson would and should command on the open market.

It's been 19 days since the last Leafs win. It's been 28 days since the last Leafs win against a real team (one that's playoff-bound). It's been 43 days since the last Leafs regulation win against a real team. To put it simply, it's been a tough couple of weeks here in Leaf land.
Carlyle was fired about halfway through the downward spiral, and while the process has been better, the results haven't followed. Tonight's game against an awful Devils team should be a chance to reverse that. Whether that's actually in the Leafs best interest is a different story for a different day.

It's now late January, and the Toronto Maple Leafs are skydiving down the standings. Last year, the reaction among the masses was a plea to reach for the parachute cord and pull; the results of the luck-driven prior season gave many hope that the tides could be reversed. This year? Written off. It's done. Wipe the hands of the dust and start getting ready for what's ahead. As such, speculation has begun as to what management has to do leading up to the trade deadline.
My answer? Not enter it as the same group they are now. Specifically, I'm looking towards the big guy.
