09:29 AM ET 07.27 | The Toronto Maple Leafs are feeling the heat of the salary cap with a little more than $6 million of free space to sign restricted free agents Nazem Kadri, Mark Fraser (who filed arbitration) and Cody Franson. It doesn't look like there's going to be enough money to spare to re-sign all three of them so that means somebody has to be the odd man out. Darren Dreger notes it looks like it will be Franson.

This is the team that sports Miss Pinch and Staypuff and Franson's the odd man out?

Don't they have Celine, Mr. Toughness himself to take care of things?

I wonder, how many of those guys are still around? Any jumpers from the CN tower at around that time?

Because the Leafs have so much 'D'. The kid had 25 assists last short season.

He doesn't fit in. He's too good for the Leafs.

Compared to Mark Fraser, 8 assists in same amount of games, but I would keep Kadri, I like his style and think he'll only get better.

Franson isn't going anywhere. Dumb article. Top four - Phaneuf, Gunnarson, Fraser and Franson.

The lamp should have been in the shape of the Stanley Cup. They can dream can't they?

Uh, top two - Franson far and away #1 ====>, Fraser, Fanook, then Funnarson, Fardner, Filles a distant fourth. Losing either of Franson or Fraser puts an awful lot of pressure on Paul Ranger to perform right out of the gate and keep it up through the hole grind. The Jets would gladly take Franson(@ 3-3.8 M) or Fraser(@2-2.8M) giving either of them 3-5 years.

Franson their #1? You are not an astute appraiser of NHL talent my friend.

July 28, 2013  10:42 PM ET

We'll see. Udders have ett thur twards afore. Don't really know what other people are watchin'. I just see the way they actually perform, and call 'em the way I see 'em. The guy's a horse, and he was with the Preds too. Funny how they missed the p-offs and the TO-ONies made them, when he switched teams.

That, and it ain't that tuff t'be the Larfs #1 - I say they struggle if they lose Franson, and they finish close to last if Reimer plays less than 55 games on top of losing him..
