St. Louis Trades B.J. Crombeen to Tampa Bay

In exchange for a 4th round pick in 2013 and 2014 and a 5th, according to TFP's David Pagnotta. Just what the doctor ordered for Tampa. Adds some grit and character to an otherwise soft team. Good pickup by Stevie.

Nice to see some teams making deals to fill their needs...Holland? You awake? Franzine is expendable, especially when it comes to Ryan/Nash or Yandle...

You post this in every thread, yet you never explain how Holland is going to get someone to take Franzen's contract: 2012-13 $5,250,000 $5,250,000 $0 — $3,954,545 2013-14 $5,000,000 $5,000,000 $0 — $3,954,545 2014-15 $5,000,000 $5,000,000 $0 — $3,954,545 2015-16 $5,000,000 $5,000,000 $0 — $3,954,545 2016-17 $3,500,000 $3,500,000 $0 — $3,954,545 2017-18 $2,000,000 $2,000,000 $0 — $3,954,545 2018-19 $1,000,000 $1,000,000 $0 — $3,954,545 2019-20 $1,000,000 $1,000,000 $0 —

$3,954,545

You may be the engineer on the Franzen hate train, but you need to come up with a trade good enough to have someone take on this contract. Just because you want him gone doesn't mean it's feasible or even necessary.

*EDIT* I am completely derailing the thread. PM me if you'd like to discuss trading Franzen, or maybe start a thread about it.

As to the topic at hand: I think Stevie has done a fantastic job for the Lightening thus far. I questioned his Roloson signing, but it worked out better than I thought it might. All in all, I think this is a really good move for him.

The OP is alittle misleading to me(sounds like they got BJ Crombeen for 2 4th rounds and 1 5th round), so here is alittle breakdown of the trade. The 5th round pick belongs to TB now

To TB:

BJ Crombeen

5th round pick 2013

To STL:

4th round 2013

4th round 2014

Thanks. Sorry about that.

Sounds like the Blues were a little jammed with wingers. Also, it appears Ryan Reaves will get full time 4th line duty now.

What makes you think Holland hasn't tried to package Franzen for Ryan/Nash or Yandle? Franzen for Nash should be a pretty good staring point for Columbus considering that Franzen produces better points/game than Nash over the last two years and does it with less PP and ice time.

Oh, and Franzen makes almost half of what Nash does.

Wait, now I am confused. Why are we looking to trade Franzen again? I know that is all I have been hearing all summer - but according to this post Franzen is the better deal...

I like this trade, Stevie adds size and toughness for a low cost.

Would have loved this guy wearing the winged wheel though no way, St.Lo uis trades him to us.
