Before you all jump on me this isn't a bad deal. Halak is a good goalie, be #1 goalie in NHL if not for Price. A #1 goalie, 24 years old with Halak's upside making 750,000 a season is worth something.

Halak...think Vokoun - 10 years ago
LOL... most ridiculous post i have read all day. (and ive read posts of people saying Jiri Hudler is a great skater!)

Im sorry but rights to Franzen contingent on a deal is worth nearly a first on its own. IMO. Worst case its worth a 2nd. (dont like that deal put ur bid in on july 1st... Oh wait you cant because someone else would pay it)

Yet you suggest the Rights to franzen + a 1st for a Goaltender worth at max a 20-30 first rounder. (i think that is generous). Halak is a good goalie but hes proved very little and imo isnt worth more than Brzy, Huet etc on stats alone. Is age/RFA status is what puts him into the low first rounder range.

Rights to Franzen + a 2nd would be a reach. I cant see you getting more than a 3rd. Most likely the offer would be like this though. Rights to Franzen+Howard for Halak+4th.
