Maybe move all of our UFA's.  Barrie, Spezza, Clifford, Muzzin.  Get picks and young assets and try to parlay some of those this summer (along with other pieces) into rebuilding the D, a new bottom 6, and a new goalie.

I know I said not to move Barrie cause you weren't going to get real value for him, but I really just don't care right now.  Blow up what you realistically can right now (UFA's), and make sure the ones left behind know that you've written them off for this season and see how they respond.  The ones that fold up shop you move in the off-season as well.

Sounds like Muzzin is close to re-signing, but I agree. Trade all the rest.

Signing Muzzin long term is maybe akin to more Blue & White disease . Forever scarred by Mike Komisarek. No half steppin’. 

If you sell , recoup all the lost assets from trades past .. & more. Otherwise, you live in the crippling middle . Good luck with that.

48/50 contracts now. That’s not a bad thing.

Shame, thought he had potential, however we do have alot of undersized wingers.

I guess I'm fine if they don't do anything. I've read a couple of deep dives on the Leafs defence in the sober light of that Hurricanes game, and it's so much a goaltending issue it's not even funny.

As far as the lazy culture percolating through this team, I think it can be changed. I don't know what it's going to take exactly, but I think the suboptimal move would be to not continue with this team the way it's built.

When they're on, they're on. Just work on bottling that. I'm still super disappointed, but I don't think it's time to abandon this just yet.

The forward group of both Pittsburgh and Tampa are smaller than ours.

Fine them for being lazy? They proved they could do it v Pittsburgh. I'm not expecting 100% effort every game, as that would be unfeasible. However 72 games out of 82 I want the effort.

I’m concerned the management philosophy is in need of a rethink. 
 

Goaltending is the number 1 concern.

Having 2 more defenceman who can actually defend the cycle and rush against top 6 players is number two.

Adding some sandpaper that doesn’t take away from the speed and skill. Its why the loss of Kadri for two bit parts was so stupid.

What's the point of having Kadri if he gets suspended every year?

Stop it with this. It's literally not a thing that can happen.

It should be. Might make them think about their actions.

I was happier with Bozak at 2nd and not have Tavares.

I hope they'll be able to expose him in the expansion draft if he falls off a cliff... Guess we'll find out the details soon.

I see the need and rationale but I'm not a fan of this deal. Whatever, though.

I get there was risk involved with having a player who plays that much on the edge. However, given neither of us has any certainty on an alternate reality that will never come to be, all I can say is I believed he wouldn’t have done it again. Or we should have found a player who had similar qualities at the centre position.

Huge fail to not move Barrie imo.

These guys are obsessed with letting players walk away for shit all.

Yup, the cupboard is feeling close to bare because of the walking UFAs.

Heavily front-loaded in signing bonuses, so won’t be too difficult to move at the end, if necessary.
