It may not make sense for Detroit (which I can completely understand you saying..), but value wise it is by no means lopsided in Calgarys favor.

I also completely disagree with you that Franzen is as valuable as Bouwmeester, but we don't need to get into that..
My main point of contention is that it makes no sense for Detroit to reaquire Hudler so I consider his trade value to Detroit as close to zero.

The franzen contract isn't too bad as the last 3 years are 2m, 1, 1 caphits so a buyout if he can't play at 37 is what is likely to happen.
