brett lebda is the worst dman in the league, slaney is a pretty solid ahler, but franson looks promising and lombardi is a nice peice too

LOL. I'm sorry. You guys are going to love Lebda, and that other guy.

I Will Son 07-03-2011 11:17 AM

We can't afford the dead money, You guys can. LTIR and he doesnt affect the cap.

after signing weber you wont be...

Pi 07-03-2011 11:22 AM

Good deal for both if you ask me. I am not sure about Nashville. Do they have an internal cap? If yes, great deal for both.

We just dump Lombardi into LTIR, you guys buyout Lebda (only 1.45M) and we get a good D for taking on the contract.

I think a Shea Weber long term contract is imminent for you guys, today or tomorrow.

JVR21 07-03-2011 11:22 AM

You poor souls.

Preds Partisan 07-03-2011 11:24 AM

Per Cooper: Poile says "We still have to fill in a couple of holes, and Im committed to doing that. But I really feel good to what weve done this point, to change our club and give us more options. Our payroll is going to be more than it was last year."

If this was a move to clear up space for Weber then we made a mistake. How the hell we gonna add offense now that we cant trade Franson for Offense!?!?!?! ****, at least Lombardi is gone but **** this doesnt seem smart

Mules 07-03-2011 11:26 AM

Guys, why don't you trade Franson to Avs? :rant:

We need defensemen who can play defense :(

RaiderDoug 07-03-2011 11:26 AM

This is only good if we use the cash to add another forward. Of which, there really are none left as UFAs.

Signing Shea Weber doesn't make this team any better. Just keeps us as good - which is a team that might make it to the 2nd round. I'm not saying this isn't important, just that staying the same does this team no good. It's like that perennial 8-8 team in the NFL - eh, whatever.

Holding on to Lombardi, if he became healthy (even if it's a longshot), would have made us much better.

Stephen 07-03-2011 11:27 AM

Makes no sense from a Nashville point of view unless you basically sold Franson to the Leafs for $7 million of the Lombardi contract back. But maybe with that money Nashville dips into the UFA pool to replace Lombardi and adds a Kaberle or something to upgrade on Franson's offense short term? No idea though, Poile isn't dumb and wouldn't just throw away assets.

I'll agree with you on the first part, but you're far off on Lombardi. He was a contract albatross for a guy who can't even work out yet.

Everlong 07-03-2011 11:29 AM

Must have some big raises on the way if Poile was forced to do this. Yikes. Franson was one of our prime trading chips, I thought we could get more than that...

alexmanu 07-03-2011 11:29 AM

I'm so ****ing angry right now. LEBDA!! WTF, FFS, SERIOUSLY!

roseyc 07-03-2011 11:32 AM

Easily bought out. I doubt Poile plays him. It's only 1.45M. He's not even an AHL defenseman.

I Will Son 07-03-2011 11:33 AM

And knowing that Burke is probably dancing naked right now pisses me off 100000 times more
