And if it's Damien Cox reporting on what the "word" is, well, you can take that to the bank. The money bank.

Darren Dreger on TSN radio: “I think that the Leafs look at Franson the way he is now on Nsh: a 4-5 D on a good team.” “the Leafs aren’t a good team, so why spend $ and term on a player that won’t be a long-term fit for you anyway”

That kind of expresses my sentiments and it's why I still don't mind this deal.

I do have a question about retaining cap hit on trades.  Is it an absolute or can it be a timed retention.  Say the Leafs trade Phaneuf but they have already used up their 3 retentions this year.  Can they retain contract through say Years 2-5 of the contract and then have it stopped for Year 6-7?  Or does it have to be an all-or-none kind of thing.

Good point. And a 4-5 D man is one of the final pieces teams look for near the end of a rebuild, and only if the team doesn't have a prospect that can fill that role in their system already.

It's absolute. It's the same percentage of the cap hit and salary for the entire remainder of the contract.

This article is rather terrible but it's easier than typing everything out.

Not the starts they would have envisioned I imagine.  Santorelli has 1 assist in 13 games.

Maybe the two of them are just looking too forward to re-signing in Toronto in the off season.   ???

Santorelli would not be problem. Franson is going to want too much money

Maybe, being back in Nashville makes Franson want to stay there.  Either that, or, maybe his money demands from the Leafs becomes more reasonable.
