I doubt he makes it all the way to our slot anyway, even if we did have the space.

Ah, I had no idea we were at 50 contracts. That's a bummer.

Grundstrom's status was re-assessed back in December and ruled not exempt as he was loaned to a professional mens team in Sweden, not a junior team.

Not sure where you heard this but I don't think that's right. Grundstrom's 20 years old, so his contract isn't a slide candidate. It'll count against the books regardless of where he plays. So he would have counted against the 50 contract list from the get-go.

Also if Grundstrom's contract was a slide risk then he would have been exempt from the list as long as he was loaned out to Europe. Doesn't matter if it's on a professional or junior team. Nylander was exempt from the list when he played in Modo for half the season in his first year.

You are correct. My wording implied that the league re-assessed, when in actuality it was CapFriendly re-assessing their classification of Grundstrom.

Anyway, I was going based on this: https://www.pensionplanpuppets.com/2017/12/12/16767474/toronto-maple-leafs-at-50-spc-limit-per-report parroting the reported reason there, but didn't look up the real reason until after I posted that.

Franson cleared. So... we could technically trade for him.

I think most of us would even though it'd be a bit of a lateral move.

Colour me surprised to learn that Carlyle was willing to let go of his 2D.
