    According to a source, the #MapleLeafs and RFA defenseman Cody Franson have agreed on a one-year contract. #NHL

    Never heard of him breaking anything personally, but he has worked with some extremely reputable media organizations (CP, Globe, CBC, etc).

    Here is a profile of said source:

    MOD EDIT

    Calling this official now. Sportsnet has it, and Kypreos will be on the FAN590 at 720 to discuss.

    That is why I didn't hit it with the old confirmed prefix. It's always awkward when it isn't one of the old standards reporting it first.

    Again, he's definitely credentialed media. But we've seen many situations the same where the "source" turned out to be false.

    I don't believe it based on the cap situation, and I will wait to see if another media outlet reports it. I do hope its true though.

    If it is true, It's smart to get it now so he can get a pre season game in.

    Crazier things have happened. It's posted as a rumour.
     
  8. What time of the day was it announced that the lockout had ended?

    Seems like an odd time to break news about a signing. Don't know how reputable he is with inside info but hopefully the news is true. If Franson is coming with a one year, hopefully it's at a price that doesn't require the team having to go work with less than a 21 man roster.

    I will say, with the way Nonis preaches about patience, I'll be surprised if he ends up with the 1 yr deal...unless there's other things that were discussed that we won't be privy to.

    Or perhaps the threat of an offer sheet.

    I don't care if it was the NHL Lockout Podium that announces it, just let it be true

    I'd like Franson at 1 year, still RFA at the end for us to hopefully lock him up long term with an increased salary cap.

    And then we can sign him log term instead of losing him to UFA in 2 years. 1 year deal was always better in my eyes.

    It's not like Nonis has a limit to the number on contracts he can sign in 1 summer, make him work overtime to sign 1 more contract I don't care

    Andrew Walker from Sportsnet is reporting it as well. Cant copy on my phone. He says 2m

    Yay

    EDIT

    OK, on the CPU now. That said, im going to wait for a bit more from someone with credentials before this gets confirmed with link status.

    He also says he'll be a UFA, Which is incorrect.


    But it seems to be done.
