If the Maple Leafs are still interested in acquiring Roberto Luongo, then Vancouver columnist Ben Kuzma suggests that the Canucks should target Tyler Bozak and Cody Franson.
Frasnson would fill the need for an extra defenseman as insurance for Alex Edler (back) and Jason Garrison (groin) who are returning from injuries. Bozak would give Vancouver a playable center while Ryan Kesler fully recovers from offseason shoulder and wrist surgeries. Whether that is enough for Vancouver GM Mike Gillis to move Luongo and his enormous contract remains to be seen. The Maple Leafs would certainly not balk at sending Bozak and Franson to the west coast. Stay tuned.
