Cody Franson to Tampa

Franson would be a good fit in Tampa I think, and the Bolts are loaded with young inexpensive forwards that would help Toronto stay under the cap. Who would Toronto want from Tampa for Franson? I was thinking maybe Alex Killorn, if they can get Franson signed that is.

I'm not too keen on giving up Killorn for him, would rather a A or B prospect on our end. No idea what Toronto actually needs though, so...

Something around Panik or Palat? Johnson+?

Tampa doesn't seem to have sufficient budget and cap room to fit in Franson.

Oh wait, capgeek still counts Ohlund...deceiving.

Actually we need Franson.

Nonis has to do whatever it takes to move Liles salary. Sign Franson, Raymond and move on.

Franson would certainly be a nice addition to Tampa but I see them giving Barberio who'd now have to go through waivers every chance to earn that 3rd pairing RD that can play lots of PP before giving up valuable assets for Franson.

If Barberio fails to show he can handle it, Tampa will likely be one of the first teams in the league searching the trade market for a Dman.

At this point Franson being moved looks inevitable. Liles needs to be moved becuase paying nearly 4M for a 6/7. He's still useful just really redundant in Toronto's system (Gardiner, Gunnarsson, Rielly, Ranger all do his job better) getting a skill forward would be nice.

What's Franson looking for contract wise? If we can get him for what we're paying Ohlund or Brewer then I would go after him with something around Panik being the main piece. If he wants more than what we pay Hedman then no. Think him and Hedman could be a very good pair.

2 years X 2.75-3M/year should do it.

On a longer term deal, that price would go up. Hard to say, but my guess is he would probably be willing to sign a 4 years X 3.5M type of deal.

Sounds like the Leafs are trying to get him to sign a 2 year X 2.25M/year ish deal.

I'd be willing to give him 4 x 3.5 which is just under what Ohlund makes which we can put on LTIR and doesn't affect our cap. Just hope he wouldn't be a one season wonder and lives up to the contract.

Would Panik be something to work around?

I would think so, although you might have to add a pick to level it out.

That usually means it's somewhat fair

Actually, this seems like a good basis of a deal if one needed to go down. Franson would be perfect in Tampa, and Tampa has a ton of great young forward prospects and simply not enough room for them all in the lineup, which is the opposite problem Toronto has.

So you'd move our only pro-ready center prospect, but not one of our dozen or so pro-ready wing prospects?

a B prospect for an NHL top 4 D thats young emerging 6'5" physical and good...

You realize a B prospect may never ever play in the NHL????

I love how prospects out rate players..

How about Stamkos for Biggs and a 2nd?

I think the Leafs current cap situation is what is currently inspiring this move. The value is definitely lobsided, but Toronto's need to shed salary is probably the motivating factor here, and the fact he's not currently under contract if I recall.

Wow, responding to a slight misevaluation of trade value with a bust+2nd for Stamkos proposal, how original.

Nonis has plenty of time on his hands (where is Franson going to go?) to shop Franson around. So just keep in mind that if an expendable "B" prospect is the best offer from Tampa, there's likely a couple other teams (not in the same division of the Leafs) who could potentially offer up more for a very promising RHD.

And to be frank... wingers are the last thing Toronto needs.

Agreed... I don't know why that's such an automatic reply for some people.

Couldn't even make it past the first page before a leafs fan offers garbage and a 2nd for a team's best player.

I really like Panik. I don't know if I am willing to let him go for Franson. We need Paniks size and skill on the lighting because we lack that size element. He's got some good value to the Lightning. Killorn has even more so. I'm not sure if TB and TO are good trade partners for Franson. Although I would like him on the team.
