Toronto's options with Franson

UPDATE: With news today that Toronto has agreed to a one-year, $1.275 million deal with defenseman Mark Fraser, a trade involving Cody Franson may be even more likely. The club now has less than $5 million in cap space left to sign Franson and fellow restricted free agent Nazem Kadri before the 2013-14 season begins. In a perfect world, the Leafs could keep both players. But, if they have to choose one, Kadri is clearly the top priority.
