3rd round pick 2013
James Van Riemsdyk
JVR's contract is quite substanial (4.25 mil$ over the next 6 years) so a trade in terms of salary, the trade off it fairly even. We take Lombardi to even out salary and get a centreman to help out our roster while Kesler is out. Franson is an RFA and can be exchanged for Raymond who is also an RFA and Raymond with still fill Toronto's loss of a winger (JVR). Ballard can help round out Toronto's defensive depth since Schenn is gone. Since Toronto is still taking on about an extra $2 mil, the draft pick is added to compensate for that since they don't really have any other players to shed.
