Liles Buyout

Yes the Leafs can actually buyout Liles after Fraser's hearing for a period of 48 hours. It isn't a compliance buyout, just a standard one. Though the cap hit isn't too pretty, I believe the 3rd year of the cap hit is upwards of 2.3 million. If the Leafs were to exercise this option it would leave around 3 million extra in their pockets for this season, and more than enough to sign Franson. As for Franson though, he didn't file for arbitration, and that leaves the Leafs completely in the drivers seat. He will end up accepting what they want to pay him, and take a bridge deal.
