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.

Sedin/Sedin/Burrows or Franzen
Higgins/Kesler/Franzen or Burrows
Booth/Schroeder or Bozak/Hansen
Manny/Lapierre/Kassian
Ebbett/Weise

We'd need a 6th defensemen but it would open up some cap room.
Detroit says no. Nothing they get back makes up for the loss of Franzen, while the upgrade in net simply is not worth it. The only way they both Franzen is if a top defenseman; prospect or otherwise, is involved somehow.
