The Toronto Maple Leafs are looking to trade Cody Franson. Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun was reporting the Leafs offered Franson to the Montreal Canadiens for Josh Gorges.
Cody Franson was TOR player going to MTL for Gorges. Would have think he's still in play with TOR acquisition of Polak and Robidas.

Where will Cody Franson end up now? He is a restricted free agent (RFA) and where he ends up could depends on his salary demands.
Cody Franson won't sign qualifying offer, which was for $2-million. He'll get a raise into at least $2.5-million range, if they keep him.

The Detroit Red Wings had interest in Franson at the NHL Trade Deadline.
