Ashton has success in the AHL because he's bigger than most opponents.  That isn't true in the NHL.  I think it'll be hard for Ashton to be an every day NHL'er.

Slow change isn't a bad thing.  It should make it easier to identify what is wrong with the team/franchise if the Leafs face-plant next season. And it gives Shanahan time to find the best people rather than the best available right now.

People here criticize Nonis for throwing in a conditional 7th round pick for Frattin.  Imagine trading Neil and Niskanen for.... Goligoski +

But no way Avs want Lupul at 5.25m.  ROR won't get much more than that.

Word is Leafs might walk away from Franson after arbitration making him UFA.

Definitely not.  But there are only so many contracts available each year so mgt might like to limit the number of invitees accordingly.

I don't know if this answers your question but a team is only allowed to have 50 players under contract:

This moves seems to agree with Nonis' declared plan (circa 2013).  Sign a bunch of cheaper guys and let them fight it out for ice-time.

The Leafs 2009 roster continues to cast a looonnngggg shadow.  Starting from zero really sucked.

With Kontiola and Komarov as possible centers, do the Leafs bother signing Legwand?

He shoots left though so he'd be on his off-wing.  Carlyle won't like that ;)

I can't imagine Detroit would make the trade.

Tatar is a LW who shoots left I believe.

I like the trade because Frattin can play on the second line with Kadri and Lupul.  D'Amigo would not have been able to do that.
