lol what a waste of time... As if $6,000,000 at 7 years is an overpayment - but $5,500,000 for 7 years is a deal.

 

Do you guys actually watch the game? It's Cody Franson... literally irrelevant when he went to a good team playing important games.  


if he signs in Detroit at that money until he's 34, I'm done.

lol I live in Toronto, family/girlfriend/friends are all fans... No choice.

 

But I also agree with your point about Petry, as Franson may not be better overall - but its been said that Petry also took a discount to stay in Montreal and not cash out July 1st.

lol - I watch 82 Leafs games a year... Marchenko is already more physical than Franson... I have no idea who started the notion that Franson is a physical player. Big does not mean physical.

I agree - I would rather see what Oulette, Marchenko and Jensen can do with the same ice time... 20-30 Points is probably attainable and costs $5,000,000 less...


Rick Zombo:

 

I wouldn't - Franson is also better than Petry, and Boychuk is 31.

Not sure why you think Franson isn't going to make around $6,000,000... He's 27, Right Handed, and has great size - even though he isn't worth it to me, unfortunately the market favours those characteristics.

 

This is also only the 2nd summer that limits contract length - meaning the cap hits are going to be higher because you cant circumvent salary anymore...

 

Already this year:

 

PETRY - 6 YEARS/$33 MILLION

BOYCHUK - 7 YEARS/$42 MILLION

LEDDY - 7 YEARS/$38.5 MILLION


e_prime:

 

If Kronwall is making $4,750,000 - Do you think Holland can or will even attempt to justify signing Franson for $6,000,000? He already gave Ericsson the bad long term D-Man contract...
