Don't know how to post link on mobile sorry guys, but so much for him being included in a potential Luongo deal

He probably needs the money. I believe he is a RFA...if he comes back to the NHL and signs and offer sheet with another team after this SEL contract is up, then I guess the Leafs get a right to match or get some compensation?

Vancouver should sign Franson. I am not sure why they don't. He would be a great depth defenceman who can easily replace Alberts. That is if we get rid of Alberts, which we should....to make room for Franson.........................................The Leafs suck. That is all.

What are you talking about? Him signing to play in Europe during the lockout doesn't change our ability to trade for him if we wanted too.

He's still the property of the Leafs as an RFA, he just doesn't have a current deal in place.

He signed for a full year, which if I'm correct means even if the lockout ends he won't be able to return to the NHL until the end of the year as he will be under contract. That being said we could acquire him and use him next year I guess.

Plays a completely different style than alberts. He's known as a gentle giant, doesn't use his huge frame much

Personally I'd only want him here to help the power play, for a big guy he's pretty soft physically. But you can never have to many booming shots from the point.

Edler-Franson
Garrison-Bieksa

Have them switch sides for one timers

That would give our second unit a hard shot from the point to compliment Kassian as a big net presence or maybe Booth depending on How Kass does this year

His deal will be just like any other deals signed by NHL players playing overseas, it'll have an out to go back to the NHL once the season starts. The only difference for him from another player with an existing NHL contract, is he'd have to negotiate a new deal before he played again. He may wait over there until it happens as a result, but nothing to say he's prohibited from coming back to the NHL.

It's not as if he's a fringe UFA like Brule signing overseas, who didn't get any offers and fully intended playing the full year there before trying at the NHL again next year. He's an RFA expecting to have a deal done to play in the NHL this season, whenever it starts.

What if Jamie Benn goes and plays overseas during the lockout? Will he not expect to come back if the season starts up? He's an RFA just like Franson, but he'd clearly come back to the Stars rather than play a full season in Europe.

Alberts isn't exactly striking fear into the hearts of any opposing teams with his frame. But I get your point.

I love Hamhuis but I think he's better suited playing prime PK time and shutting down other teams big guns. I've never really liked him on the PP especially with all the options the Canucks would have with Franson

But since Franson won't be here I'd expect him to be on the second power play pairing this year

According to tsn he has no out clause and will be in the SEL until the end of there season even if the lockout is resolved

Why did he sign a full year? Does Cody Franson know something about the lockout that we don't? Hmm.. interesting

That's where the link comes in handy.

Here's one with more info:

@koshtorontosun #Leafs Cody Franson's agent, Gerry Johansson, tells me the defenceman can come back to NHL from Sweden if he signs and if lockout ends


EDIT: here's the TSN article too, likely updated after the agent clarification:

Cody Franson is on his way to the Swedish Elite League to play for Brynas.

How long the unsigned Toronto Maple Leafs defenceman stays there remains to be seen.

In announcing the signing Monday, the Swedish Elite League team made it sound like Franson would be around for the entire season, but his agent later clarified that he had the option to return to North America if the lockout ended and a contract could be reached with the Leafs.

The 25-year-old defenceman is a restricted free agent who went unsigned by Toronto throughout the summer.

He made US$800,000 while appearing in 57 games with the Leafs last season, scoring five goals and 21 points.

It's strange that he was a really good defenceman in Nashville but could hardly crack the lineup of the Maple Leafs.

He played protected minutes in nashville as usually the 4th or 5th guy and got pp time. Toronto doesn't have nearly the quality of defenders or goalies that nashville did

You can edit it yourself. Go to 'Edit' then click on 'Use Full Editor' and it'll give you the option to change everything. You've have to do it from a PC though I think.

Either way, it's still a year's contract with Brynas, just that he has the out whenever the NHL starts up again.

Hamhuis is better at handling the puck AND dealing with guys pressuring him at the point. Retaining possession comes long before a booming shot in setting up a power play.

And with possession retained Hammer is also a better passer and plays lanes and opportunities better.

A better player is a better player!

PP = Edler / Garrison and Hammer / Bieksa. You could also call up K Not as a 2knd PP specialist.

I love Hamhuis but I think he's better suited playing prime PK time and shutting down other teams big guns. I've never really liked him on the PP especially with all the options the Canucks would have with Franson

Not saying he isn't a better player. I just don't think he needs to play top shutdown time, top PK time and any extra PP time kinda like how Burrows doesn't play the PP. it's just a lot of minutes that might not be entirely necessary if we had a good power play quarter back as a depth d man like Franson or maybe K con . Plus I'm not sold on no right handed shooter on the point on the 1st unit. Never meant to come across as hating on Hammer huge fan of the guy
