They need to sign Weber to a long-term contract and can't afford Suter, Weber, and Franson - that would be my guess.

Nashvilles current cap is at 35million. Franson still had a year left before rfa and made less than lebda. Id consider him better than lebda atm and has a brighter future as well. Lombardi made more but hes still better than both the players they got. Its like a Nhl 11 trade, bunch of crap for something better.

How old are you? Who's your son(s) that play on that team?

Nashville - Toronto trade was pure salary dump by Nashville. Traded Lombardi who still has PCS who is owed 7 mill over two years so they can afford Weber and Suter.

just read an article about torres' departure from vancouver. he's very grateful for the opportunity that he was given here and would have loved to stay but it was a decision made in the best interest of his family as a whole. i wish him luck! gonna miss those huge hits from him

lol you are twisting the story to one side... he promised the cup next year, and had a verbal agreement of 8mill a year, IF they were able to gain peices, such as selanne to the team to win the cup, but the gm didnt sign anyone, and he wanted a 10mill/yr contract, they said no so he left, took a huge paycut of 1mill to play with his friend selanne in colorado
