@ Don Cherry @LupesTroop Great idea.
Most importantly, over a shut down man, we need someone who can take on a bunch on TOI. The rest of our D will look so much better if that can happen.

@Knights2Leafs @LupesTroop But wouldn't it be nice if we could package Gardiner and Liles so our Salary cap lowers? Could give us options down the line that Gardiner can't give us through his play.
Basically what I am trying to say, is unlike years past, we need to make a move while our players have value. A few years ago Kulemin was a 30 goal scorer, along with MacArthur...
We have positions that need to be filled. Young talent can be moved to fill those roles.
@Bobsyouruncle @MaxwellHowe Maybe we should trade him sooner than later. His value must be high right now. He has an unreal save percentage.
Pulling the trigger may be the best option
@Cloud09 @LupesTroop Denis Wideman would be a nice fit.
@Pent_House @LupesTroop Those are just things we could trade, not all together. I should have made that clear.
I think we should move Gardiner, Kulemin, prospect, pick for a #1 Dman. Depending on Giordanos situation in Calgary, he would be a good fit.
We need a guy that can play 25+ minutes, so we can lower Dions TOI. If Dion plays 22-27 mins a night he is one of the best in the league, over that, he begins to fumble. Getting a guy who can play top minutes will make Dion a better player, and make our D better.
In my opinion, a Dman that is probably unattainable, but would be an excellent fit is Keith Yandle.
Also, I see the leafs resigning Reimer in the offseason. Going with the tandem next year as well. After that, moving one of the two for either a centreman or defenseman, whatever the team needs at the time.
It has become clear to me that Jake Gardiner is not going to be an integral role on this team. We need to move him before his value decreases even more.
How great has Morgan looked? Very much looking forward to his development over the coming years.
Just think about all of the amazing prospects we have/
Connor Brown leads the OHL in scoring.
Matt Finn is a ppg defensemen,
Frederik Gauthier is developing into an amazing two way centre. He WILL be either a 1 or 2 centre on the leafs in 2-3 years, making an impact right when he starts... He is also a motherfucking giant and is still growing.
@MaxwellHowe @Burtonboy that's basically what i meant haha. Ya, if he plays over 40 games he becomes UFA one year earlier. 23?
@MaxwellHowe @BPsotka burns a year of entry level contract.
