@Anthony Petrielli There were rumors today that it was Phaneuf going the other way in the Richards deal . Friedman mentioned it and some LA writer as well. Friedman said LA wanted Phaneuf but the Leafs said no and the LA source said the Kings didn't want to take Phaneuf

@WB_222 @LeafsForLife @MaxwellHowe @rustynail There are deals the Leafs can do if they want to free up cap and  if they really want Franson . Lupul and Bozak for example and if need be you could retain a mil in salary to make them easier to move. The Leafs are not as hamstrung as people think

Zac Rinaldo suspended eight games by @NHLPlayerSafety for Kris Letang hit. He's a repeat offender.

@DCDC @Burtonboy Need to get some sort of idea . This whole thing could blow up for a lot of teams if the PA decides they don't want to use the 5% escalator clause .

@mcloki @Burtonboy @Mcost61 That's an huge over payment for Franson . 

8 hours, 8 minutes ago on Monday Mashup: Perennial All Star

@Mcost61 @Burtonboy A lot depends on the cost of Kadri and Bernier . Plus they may try to move Lupul and Bozak at some point too. I ran numbers on cap geek based on 72 mil cap a while back and its close . If I remember I had Franny at 5.3 but low balled Kadri and Bernier a bit . Bottom line is if Franny wants 6 mil to stay then I say trade him .

Its also possible the Leafs may be trying to get a fix on what it would cost for Kadri and the like to judge if they have enough to re-sign Franson as well

Fighting with helmets and shields on may reduce concussions although I doubt there is substantive proof of that yet. There is no doubt in my mind fighting with them on is causing lots of injuries

@AlbertaMapleLeaf @Burtonboy I believe Dion has close to 1200 games in total since he came into the League. Given the style of game he plays Its pretty amazing he's had so few. However it wouldn't surprise me if injuries become a big issue for Phaneuf very soon. Those yrs are taking their toll.

@mcloki @Burtonboy Rebuild is a long arduous process that will take many years .

@peterbleafs @Burtonboy @mcloki To me that's still a retool not a full rebuild and I think that's the direction you will see them take . They aren't gonna blow the whole thing up.

12 hours, 33 minutes ago on Monday Mashup: Perennial All Star

Reply

@mcloki @Burtonboy Lupul and Bozak most likely are going to be moved but that's still likely a retool . If you are going to completely rebuild you had better be prepared for 6-8 yrs of really  bad . If that's the direction then you have to look at moving anyone over 22-23 yrs old . Kadri or instance would be 30 - 32 before the team would compete
