  • Franson & Santorelli to Preds

    The Toronto Maple Leafs have traded Cody Franson and Mike Santorelli to the Nashville Predators Hockey Team for Nashville’s first-round selection in the 2015 Draft, and forwards Brendan Leipsic and Olli Jokinen.

    Interesting. I thought Franson could probably have gotten a first round pick on his own - 6'5, good shot, 32 points.

    I guess the Leafs are banking it on being able to move Jokinen for a decent return? I'm not sure how much they'd get. He has played really poorly on a good Nashville team this year. And Dreger says "Let's just say, Jokinen was less than thrilled to hear he's been traded to the Leafs" :lol:

      The interesting thing about this for me is, in the past four years, Poile has traded away three first round picks, for Mike Fisher, Paul Gaustad, and Cody Franson. Says something about the value Poile places on late first round picks, relative to the value that most other teams have given them in recent years.
