Franson, Reimer on the outs

The Toronto Maple Leafs continue to explore the trade market and appear to be set on moving defenseman Cody Franson and goaltender James Reimer.

Franson, a restricted free agent, was almost traded to the Montreal Canadiens for veteran defenseman Josh Gorges.

Gorges, however, would not waive his no-trade clause and accept a deal to Toronto. Instead, he agreed to be dealt to the Buffalo Sabres for a 2016 second-round draft pick.

The Leafs have been shopping Reimer for several months, and kicked up their efforts after the netminder formally asked to be traded, but so far the team has come up empty.

Franson and Reimer could both be moved for draft picks, unless the Leafs can get their hands on a two-way center for their third line.

It's believed the Leafs have some interest in unrestricted free agent forward Steve Ott, who split last season between the Buffalo Sabres and St. Louis Blues.

Ott, 31, is also believed to be courted by the New York Rangers and Detroit Red Wings, among others.
