Saunders back mid-April.  Wow.  That's much better than all-star break as the Jays first projected.  Baseball.

@hometeem Aren't you only allowed to retain salary on three contracts?  We should be careful how that is managed.

@peterbleafs @docmma They won't be high 1st round picks.  Kessel should be traded for a future potential #1 center like a Strome from NYI.  We should not roll the dice with this asset.

@peterbleafs I don't know why we need 2015 1st, 2016 1st, Terravainen now from Chicago when we could get that much or more in the summer.  There's no reason to trade Kessel now unless the return is better than this because these picks are risky and Terravainen may not pan out.

Good morning everyone.  Just woke up after this awesome dream that we traded Clarkson and freed up his entire cap hit.  Okay, off to the reality of work now.

Yes but in reality it's to sign a big contract. I wonder if they're looking at a ROR type trade and sign.

I love the Clarkson trade but cap space doesn't make sense if we're in full rebuild mode with no draft picks coming back. I'm thinking a big free agent this summer. Who's available?

Clarkson's last two or three games he turned it up a notch. He played harder, was a pest and even dropped the gloves. You think they were already talking about a trade and needed to showcase himself? Also didn't we see a similar effort from Phaneuf before he got hurt? Another trade coming?

When I posed the question:  Would you trade Reilly for MacKinnon knowing you're getting the best defensemen in the 2015 NHL entry draft?

I'm going to post this again from yesterday so that I get a bigger sample size......I'll post the results later.

Here's a question for you:

Would you trade Reilly for MacKinnon knowing you're getting the best defensemen in the 2015 NHL entry draft?  This is assuming the best available player when it's our pick is a defensemen like Hannifin.

With regards to the discussion below about getting as many draft picks as possible - the logic in that is that Dubas and Hunter skew our chances of getting a future NHLer in our favour for each round.  So, the average team has a 25% chance of getting an NHLer in the second round but we have a 33% chance, as an example.  Now is the time to have draft picks.

@Burtonboy @Omac13 So, they locked him up before sending him here with Richards for Phaneuf?

@Yaknowwhat @North Kariya It depends on your perspective though.  By letting a guy go because he becomes a UFA in a few weeks is a decent proposition.  Chances increase with the more picks you have in whatever round you're picking.  Also, you may be willing to shed salary for the slim chance that a pick turns out in your favour but you're also willing to take that chance because you'll have the cap room to insert a legitimate NHL guy that fits your needs.  I think every decision has a reason.
