They take on cap, so they get an extra player. Trading Lu for a player with a similar contract makes a ton of sense.

Bozak, Blacker

Toronto gets a goalie with some experience without giving up a ton of youth. We get someone to compete for the 3rd line centre spot and some much needed RHD depth on the farm.

Be gentle.
Detroit would want an established dman coming back if they traded Franzen. The difference between Howard and Luongo is smaller than Franzen and Ballard. A 3-way with Gunnarsson going to Detroit might make them more inclined. I once put an idea up like this:

To Vancouver: Franzen, Det 1st

To Toronto: Howard

To Detroit: Macarthur, Gunnarsson, Luongo
