Franson will get a bump next year as a RFA, and if his agent is reasonable he will be paid less than Luke will be, making him a good cap hit. Don Meehan's negotiations with the Leafs were well documentated this summer. It can be argued if he is indeed worth 3.6m for 5 years. Not a contract that will cripple a deal but maybe too rich for the Leafs moving fwd with Dion and Komi(unless he is moved) and Liles in limbo for next year.

Gunnar, Franson and Aulie should not command as much as Liles, Komi or Schenn and considering Gunnar and Franson have played as well as they have this year with a cap hit of only 2.1M. They are safer from being moved than the latter players mentioned.
Wouldn't better players on cheaper contracts be worth much much more? Flawed logic my friend
