To Van: C Tyler Bozak, D Cody Franson(RFA), F Carter Ashton or D Matt Finn and a conditional 2013 1st round draft pick( if the leafs make the playoffs its a 1st, if they miss its a 2nd)
Luongo give the leafs quality goaltending for several years he will probably get them to the playoffs for all years that he plays for them. Sauve can replace Franson on the depth chart, obviously Franson is much better. and they get a conditional pick if they miss the playoffs or not. it works out cap wise leaving the leafs with roughly 3mill in cap space.
Bozak can be our 3rd line center we need and can fill in for Kesler while he is out injured, Franson is a big gritty defense man we can use on our back end and can fill into our top 4 in case of injuries. he can also be used on the PP also. Ashton is a good big power forward prospect and Finn is a reliable puck moving d-man that can develop into a top 4 guy. we also get a conditional pick if Luongo does well and the leafs make the playoffs we get a 1st rounder if not a 2nd.
We can Keep Kassian, Lack and Tanev in the AHL for the rest of this year to continue developing and give them more confidence(im expecting a shortened season so it wouldn't be a good idea to bring them up and have them play on the 4th line, 6th-7th d-man and backup goal tending when they have been doing well with the wolves). after next year when we have Raymond, Malholtra, Bozak, Alberts and a few others being FA they can take their spots.
Sign D Cody Franson 2 years 3.5mill @ 1.75mill per year.
Sign G Brent Johnson 1 year $700 000.
