I can't quite figure out your obsession with Franson lol


You must really like him as a player because you are campaigning hard for him to sign here.


It's kind of funny given his infatuation with Franzen. Lol


I was going to say... I think he has a Franzen fixation, not a Franson fixation.


TBH I don't think Lefty is any more fixated on Franson than anyone else... he WAS one of the key UFAs going into the offseason.

Honestly, I'm surprised it took this long for the NHLPA to file the grievance.

OFFICIAL: #NYR have agreed to terms with free agent forward Jarret Stoll.

With his off-ice legal issues, Stoll comes cheap at under $1-million for one year. Could end up being good redemption story.

Seems like a lot of household names still available.


Are teams emphasizing building "from within" more now? Or will we see a ton of camp invites and signings in the next month or so?

Exactly, I think teams are really taking a close look at who they've got in their system before they go out and spend a couple million on a player that may not add that much difference to their roster than what they've already got for a helluva lot cheaper.


Ehrhoff's deal last year was $4 million, not $1 million.  Thru 'ye olde rumour mill', he's still linked to the Jackets, but they've got under $4 million worth of cap space to work with.  Franson is rumored to end up in Boston, but they're all caught up in the numbers game as well.

Complain about direction thread has taken... further comments continue to push thread further away from topic thread.









On top of the big names that are still out there like Ehrhoff and Franson, it's amazing how many players are still out there. 

Guys that normally would get snapped up are languishing on the sidelines for seemingly much longer than normal.

Or is it just me?
