I started, so might as well continue.

As hf1 noted, England's loss to Bangladesh was crucial, and led to them being eliminated from being eligible for quarterfinal play.

Quarter finals are set:

1.  Sri Lanka vs. South Africa
2.  India vs. Bangladesh
3.  New Zealand vs West Indies
4.  Australia vs Pakistan

Games are being played in New Zealand and australia, and there is a shot they both meet in the finals....

Semifinals have been set (1 game has already been played):

1.  New Zealand vs. South Africa  - New Zealand has already won this match and is headed to the finals to face the winner of:

2.  India vs. Australia - Match begins Wednesday night at 11:30.
Im from New Zealand.  Watched the game last night.  That is what sports is all about.  The opposite emotion of the game 7 loss.  Cant wait for the final.

So Friedman says that Franson turned down a multi-year offer with a cap-hit of around $4.6mil. Wonder the Leafs plans would be to clear out cap space if he even would take a deal like that.

The only way he's taking a deal for that amount if it's got a crazy term length. In which case, the Leafs should step up the trade talk frequency.
No body on this current roster is worth over 5 million at this stage but he is going to get paid regardless.

If they're not willing to sign him to the contract he's looking for now, why would they be willing to in the summer? Franson's demands aren't going to drop when he hits the open market. If anything, they're going to grow.
Unless the Leafs can unload some contracts from now until sometime in the offseason when they could resign him?  I dont really care if he is back or not but we need some return for him regardless.  I also wasnt sure if you were allowed to trade then resign back to your old team.

As others have pointed out, you can re-sign a player in the off season. You may be thinking of buy-outs where you can't re-sign the player after buying them out.
Just wasn't sure about the resigning after trades but thanks for clearing it up. 
I happy to build a D around Reilly after this season and I would like to see Gardiner over before Phanuef.

If Franson wants to stay in Toronto but they can't meet the price before the trade deadline, is it still possible to trade him to a contender for a return then resign him in the off season because he wants to be a Leaf?  Sorry if thats a dumb question.  Can you not trade then re-sign?

Thanks

You are all a bunch of babies haha. Growing up in Scotland the regular puck drop time was midnight.
I watch the games in New Zealand.  Todays game is on 3pm Wednesday (we are already in your tomorrow) but the usual 7pm games are on around midday here.

What about PP lines?  I would really like to see Clarkson on the 2nd unit in front of the net scoring dirty goals which is which a lot of his goals came when he scored 30 plus.

I've wondered a bit lately how the team is going to handle Bozak's specialty team minutes. It doesn't really look like we're going to be replacing McClement externally, so Bozak will probably be looking at a pretty big bump in PK minutes. And considering that Bozak was already one of the highest played forwards in the league last season, I'm not sure he can take those extra minutes without dropping some elsewhere. Since Bozak struggled to produce on the powerplay last season (6th among forwards in points, 8 PP points in 58 games) I'd consider dropping him off the powerplay entirely. Kadri was very good on the powerplay last season despite getting 2nd unit minutes, and Kontiola should definitely be getting minutes on the PP as well. I think I'd run something like this:

JVR-Kadri-Kessel
Gardiner-Phaneuf

Lupul-Kontiola-Clarkson/Frattin
Rielly-Franson

I like Kadri on the 1st unit as well except his face offs are not as good as Bozak.

Last season they were 3% different in FO%, a difference of ~35 FO wins over 1000 draws.  Not really significant.

Maybe just a down year for Bozak, but that's the most recent season #'s.
Sweet just leave Bozak on the PK and move Kadri up to the 1st PP.  Holland is a pretty good passer so he could C the 2nd PP over the new signings.

Thats it double shift Bolland.

I hope Reimer definitely gets the start tonight and stands on his head.  He deserves another chance to compete for net.

I would actually finally like to see some pay back on Gionta after at he did to Reimer.  Someone should just grab him and give him a beat down....I feel the same way about Marchand too.
