The Leafs have to make changes just out of salary cap necessity.
Kadri is a funny case though. You could say his contract is very team friendly - $4.5 mil - so don't trade him.
But then if his contract is that team friendly, it should bring a better return for him in a trade.
Also, with all the money Leafs will be spending on their young group, can they really afford to pay that much for a 3rd line center? Probably not. When he was 2nd line, sure, but now they gotta cut corners all over the place.
Why did they have to sign Marleau to that ridiculous deal where, as a 40 year-old, he'll make $6 mil next year.
As for the current NHL playoffs, I got nuthin'. I'm trying to think of some reason to want anything - not coming up with it.
I have had a morning habit of checking the NHL.com website for scores, and I was fixing to do that this morning when it occurred to me, there is nothing I could see there that would make me feel any kind of way.
Always felt there should be a bigger advantage for the top teams. Maybe let the division winners get a bye into 2nd round. I mean you compete eighty games for what? A possibility of an extra home game?
seems like there's some interesting ways these series can go in 2nd round. I'm looking forward to it
What to make of this Carolina? They made the Caps look very bad n tired.
stupid Colorado? are they gonna get manhandled by the big stiffs from San Jose. looks line the line is smaller than I'd expect, so somebody giving Colorado plenty of credit.
Dallas St Louis looks like a battle of tanks.
I just hope I can crack the code and make fortune in next 5days before leaving Vegas
I tend to cheer for my Team Canada guys but as always, there are some of those most everywhere. On that basis, I should probably cheer for Boston. I don't know that anyone has a more valuable combo to us than Marchand/Bergeron.
I ain't cheering for Boston though.
I guess I want Carolina to fail because I see them as a prime trade partner for the Leafs - we wanna pry some defense out of them - so better to not let anyone's value get too high.
