Let's not go there again. Is Hutch out of the picture?

The issue with Hutch is that he’s not very good. Wouldn’t be shocked if he signed to be the 3rd stringer.

His price tag must be decent. The pot might be empty by the time they sign Mitch, Kap, Johnsson and replace Z?

Dreger: Toronto Maple Leafs bracing for activity. Telling teams they will listen on Kapanen and Kadri. Would need a D back in a Kapanen trade and a centre back for Kadri. Strong sense Connor Brown could go as well.

So Dreger just saying everything that has been obvious since the season ended. Great journalism.

Lebrun: I’m told Carolina and Toronto recently had a chat about a deal involving Kapanen and Brown going to the ‘Canes in a package involving Pesce. But I don’t think Carolina wants to move Pesce at this point. That could change of course ...

Lots of talk that the Leafs are going to get hit with a few offer sheets...…...Talk about cap hell.

I would sooner have Mitch than Nylander so if possible move him.

However if Mitch has to go four first rounders will make up for it.

Then use those firsts to either sign someone else's RFA or trade for a cheaper Marner replacement.

Hard decisions have to be made.  The Raptors canned the coach of the year and traded the face of their franchise.

Sometimes you need to be bold and make the unpopular move for the betterment of the entire organization

Leafs offer to Marner should be $10.5M. If he signs an offer sheet at $10.5M match it and move on. If it's more take the four 1sts, sign a UFA and trade for a RHD.

If Marner walked with an offer sheet I’d try to get M Tkachuk on an offer sheet to play with Matthews and Nylander. Take the 4 picks to replace the picks needed for our own sheet.

Yup.  If Marner does leave he will be replaced with another high end talent.

If someone gives you 4 first rounders for Mitch, just take em and flip them for defence.

I would think I would hate this idea but I'm actually pretty open to this.

After all the pre-draft talk, there was only one trade made during the first round. The Flyers traded down three spots with the Coyotes.

Likely due in part to the final cap number still not having been announced, but also the same GM strategy of playing not to lose rather than going for the big victory.

Hard to see any serious offer sheets being given if this is the mood of NHL GM's.

Marleau to Carolina, with 2020 1st and 7th. Leafs get a 2020 6th round pick.

No salary retained.

 

EDIT: The 1st is a conditional pick.

The cost of ditching cap hits is steep.

What was owed on his deal? Six million bucks would be a lot of scratch for a late first round pick.
