The Toronto Maple Leafs look to have a tough decision on their hands regarding contract talks with defenceman Cody Franson.

TSN Hockey Insider Darren Dreger tweeted on Friday that trade speculation surrounding the restricted free agent will heat up, as the Maple Leafs would like to keep him but the asking price on his salary might be too much.

Dreger also suggested that the return for Franson in any possible trade might be a prospect and a draft pick.

Franson, 25, led all Toronto blueliners in scoring with four goals and 29 points last season.

The Maple Leafs acquired Franson two seasons ago in a trade with the Nashville Predators.
