ESPN 's Custance listed Franzen as the a candidate if compliance buyouts are allowed to range a couple of seasons, like what the NBA did.

It is paywalled, so cannot give you the whole list of guys but some interesting names on that list... Not sure if this is legit because of the paywall, but just the Franzen quote was as follows from the article.

GM Ken Holland has patiently saved cap space and may be able to capitalize on teams shedding salary this summer. If there's a window for a buyout beyond next season, Franzen becomes a candidate but his cap hit is still low enough at $4 million to tolerate his inconsistent play for now.
Of note Custance lives in the Detroit area and is pretty plugged in with the organization. So that is an interesting name to be tossed out. He didn't put it as highly likely even then, but that if the right circumstances were to arise and the right players hit the market Johan could be in trouble.
