    Even though it's one year. Holy **** Nonis, May Ray and Franson for 3 million, good job.

    Franson screwed again. If he stays healthy he gets more points than Clarkson this year.

    If I were him I would be counting the minutes until Toronto is in the rear-view mirror

    Nice, but Franson is so out of here at the end of the year. We've treated him like ****.

    Negotiations are a part of the job. I don't think he was sweating much.

    Hope he has a great year, I don't care about next year. Who knows maybe Nonis offers him an extension more than he is worth around Christmas time.

    Great news for this season. Can't see him sticking around next year, though.

    But I didn't think Nonis could sign Kadri, Raymond, and Franson. So who knows? I can see Franson signing for around $4.0 - I'd be more than OKAY with that.

    If he leaves, he leaves. Players come and go. Rielly will have one more year as well as all the other defensemen. He's a replaceable asset.

    Yeah, he signed for a low dollar figure rather than leave for Europe or force a trade a la Kessel because he feels shafted. He sure has a funny way of showing it.

    So that's everyone! :)
    everyone's signed. (Franson plays the last 2 games of pre-season). Time to march towards the cup!
     
  12. And lose him to free agency? In your dreams.
     
  13. Why are people saying he's gone next year? He's a RFA. The Leafs will have the option of walking away from the award, but that might be the best option anyway depending on the progress of Rielly, Percy, MacWilliam, Granberg. Lots of promise in the pipeline. No real need to worry.

    The fact this guy is making 33% less than Gunnarsson is a minor miracle.

    Even if he does want to leave, we have options, we could sign someone else, play grannberg or Reilly or even macwilliam.

    As much as I like him, players can be replaced, look at Macarthur for instance.

    In about 2-3 years time, Rielly and Percy will make him an afterthought.

    He's an RFA next year. 4 years of service and is still 26 at the June 30th cutoff.

    So where are all the talk and threads about how Nonis is a genius for signing Cody Franson? Isn't it only fair since there was a huge thread about his incompetence ?

    Don't forget to add Paul Ranger to that list. Franson, Raymond, Ranger = $4 mil. :yo:


    He'll still be an RFA at the end of this season, has arbitration rights. He's Leafs property unless we trade him. He'll be back.

    So there's like a third of a million in cap space left:

    CAPGEEK.COM USER GENERATED ROSTER
    My Custom Lineup
    FORWARDS
    James Van Riemsdyk ($4.250m) / Tyler Bozak ($4.200m) / Phil Kessel ($5.400m)
    Joffrey Lupul ($5.250m) / Nazem Kadri ($2.900m) / Nikolai Kulemin ($2.800m)
    Mason Raymond ($1.000m) / Dave Bolland ($3.375m) / Jay McClement ($1.500m)
    Frazer McLaren ($0.700m) / Joe Colborne ($0.600m) / Colton Orr ($0.925m)
    David Clarkson ($5.250m)
    DEFENSEMEN
    Dion Phaneuf ($6.500m) / Carl Gunnarsson ($3.150m)
    Jake Gardiner ($1.117m) / Cody Franson ($2.000m)
    John-Michael Liles ($3.875m) / Paul Ranger ($1.000m)
    Mark Fraser ($1.275m) /
    GOALTENDERS
    Jonathan Bernier ($2.900m)
    James Reimer ($1.800m)
    OTHER
    Buyout: Darcy Tucker ($1.000m)
    Buyout: Colby Armstrong ($1.000m)
    RETAINED SALARY TRANSACTIONS (0.778% of upper limit)
    Matt Frattin ($0.437m—0.5%) Ben Scrivens ($0.062m—0.1%)
    ------
    CAPGEEK.COM TOTALS (follow @capgeek on Twitter)
    (these totals are compiled with the bonus cushion)
    SALARY CAP: $64,300,000; CAP PAYROLL: $64,266,667; BONUSES: $300,000
    CAP SPACE (22-man roster): $333,333

    No 13th forward for 10 games would be a little weird though.

    Gotta give Nonis credit for knowing his job here. You can like or dislike what he did this offseason and for a while there I was nervous that he'd recklessly put himself in a jam he couldn't easily get out of, but with it all said and done he knew who he had to pay and who he had leverage to squeeze and he executed his plan as well as he could. I still disagree with parts of the plan, but that's very different from a month or two ago when I thought he might've screwed up his own plan.
