@CanuckUKinToronto I don't think Pit got worse and if they did it isn't by much. They certainly change the shape of the team but that might help them. They also will have a new coach which I think will help them.

@Cameron19 @loomx Fine give them Frason and we will take Larsson.

@Cameron19 First thing to do is check with local groups on what type of permits you might need and other permissions you might need to alter waterfront property. I have a cottage on the water near Grand Bend Ontario on Lake Huron and you can't do anything.

@B_Leaf I think Nilsson will playing meaningful minutes in the NHL and although he isn't big he plays physical.

@Burtonboy @B_Leaf @Archie Vanlanda I just don't see where he will fit this year. I wouldn't want to put him on his off side.

@Burtonboy @B_Leaf @Archie Vanlanda Was that because he saw easier competition or because he got away from Frason?

@B_Leaf @Archie Vanlanda I think people seriously underrate Rielly's defensive game. I actually want him to get some PK time this year to see what happens.

@B_Leaf @Archie Vanlanda Make me wish we had two of them to play together. Either of them paired up with Rielly would be killer.

Who would you rather have Rielly, Trouba, or Jones?

@Bruffins @BrandonCheema They were serious about his skating being very solid. He seems like a smart player. Also I got a boner from that one open ice hit he made. It's a lost art.

@MaxwellHowe You might need to start adjusting your cap value. For 18 g and 40 points 3 million is decent.

@Dewy Keon Hogturd Ok 17 minutes isnt a lot before I looked I thought he was around 20.  17 minutes is a decent amount for as you say a bottom pairing guy.

@Dewy Keon Hogturd All of the sudden having solid bottom pairing dmen isn't a good things. I didn't say he was amazing or anything. Just a good solid d man who is dependable. You are right Morgan plays a few more seconds a night.

@Dewy Keon Hogturd Averaged 17 mins this year is a plus player has good size. For the price he can be had at he is a solid D man.

Considering a slow day at the offrice and as the title of the Mashup is Silly Season I offer to you my fantasy line up. It technically fits under the cap but I cheated a little bit with some RFA who are great players and did not get raises (sucks to be them). This team would hit a lot!

Just looked at the potential first round for next year. I did not realize Buffalo had potentially 3 first rounders. If the NYI have bad season Buffalo could have one hell of a draft year.

@rickpearce76 @Archie Vanlanda Agreed Stastny would be an upgrade at centre I just don't think it will happen. I considered Boyle on D but went with Nikitin instead.

@NotInsane @Archie Vanlanda Give us a hard hitting veteran presence in our bottom six, with players who can actually take meaningful minutes and contribute occasionally on the score board. Helps with Centre depth. Gives some young guys a change to prove what they are or not.


Yes trading for JVR solved a major need but you are not going to steal a #1 centre or top pairing D in a trade like that.

@NotInsane @Archie Vanlanda This line up actually solves a few problems the Leafs had. It does not address any major problems but those can't really be address in one off season anyways.

Reply

@rickpearce76 @Archie Vanlanda Its easy to say those things are problems everyone can see that. That is why I said this is (other than Grabo) a more realistic look at something management can do. There is not going to be a quick fix to getting a top pairing d man. 


Montyoa would be a fine back up but that position can be filled by a bunch of options really.
