    Hoping we get to see Dermott get a chance beside Rielly very soon. Could turn into our own home-grown (and cheaper) version of Brodie.

    He may get some shifts with Rielly after a PK, if they don't put Rielly and Barrie out together to go for major offense. However, if they are really pumping out Rielly and Muzzin as the top 2 LD, he may be splitting the rotation with Barrie, Ceci and Holl as RD partners.

    Pretty sure I’ve read he was the best defenceman in the KHL recently. ‘I’d assume he will be at least our bottom pair d-man.

    Mo, Muzzin, Sandin - Dermott, Holl, Lehtonen

    That’d be my guess as to what they’d try in some combination. If they went that route then I’m positive they would try and sign a Spezza like 7th cause Marincin is horrid and Lil should be playing big minutes.

    Jared McCann would be a great third line C to target.

    He's basically the same player as Kerfoot but more physical. I wouldn't give up anything significant for a slight upgrade.

    He's also more effective as a winger than a center... Plus he sucks at draws.

    We certainly won't see this experiment in the playoffs.

    You're more optimistic than I am that Ceci is going to be able to handle top pairing.

    Agreed. Not likely to happen with a healthy blueline and an equal balance between LHD and RHD. Going into next season though...

    The beauty thing is that Muzzin-Holl will take top pairing matchups. So Ceci just has to be top 4 quality, which he is more often than people give him credit for.

    This is not an overreaction based on the game, as this was obvious, but Marner is the guy who needs to go to balance the roster.

    Trade both Marner and Nylander. Free up a ton of cap space and get two solid D men and a good two way forward

    I don't know if Dubas can get this done, but if the rumour is true that Pieterangelo wants to come home, we absolutely must do so and trade Mitch or Willy for cap. We need a 25 mpg dominant dman that can qb the game more than anything.

    If you google "pietrangelo leafs" you will find a few articles and interviews tying him to the Leafs. Bob Mckenzie has also mentioned that he might find himself on the Leafs next year.

    Don’t want to bring my hopes up but the only way Pietra to Leafs this off season is Leafs trading Marner away as I don’t think Pietra will come under 8mil.

    What's the most we should be offering Pietrangelo? 8.75? Times have changed so we shouldn't be offering 10 million.

    best situation possible If we lost to Columbus would be winning the first overall and signing Pietrangelo to 8.75.

    Trade Marner, Nylander and Johnsson for lots of prospects and draft picks and a lower salary good two way forward.
    The expansion draft messes us up if we decided to get another decent dman on a longer than 1 year contract.

    Lafreniere Matthews Hyman
    Robertson Tavares Mik
    Barabanov Kerfoot Kapanen
    Clifford Spezza Engvall

    Rielly Pietrangelo
    Muzzin (1 year contract Dman)
    Dermott Holl
    Lehtonen

    Probably not the best time to make snap judgements given the circumstances but that just might be me.

    Here is a great offseason for the Leafs.

    Win the lottery and select Lafreniere

    Trade Marner to Ottawa for Brady Tkachuk and the 5th overall. Then draft Jamie Drysdale

    Take the 10.9 million in cap savings and sign Pietrangelo for 5 years at 7.5 million a year. The leftover of the cap savings from Marner minus Pietrangelo signing is about 3.4 million which should be able to get Soupy signed and Spezza.

    Sign Dermott 2 million for 3 years and you probably still have some money left over.

    So yeah you lose Marner but gain Tkachuk who brings a different element to the team and still is a good offensive player. You also gain Pietrangelo plus create a bit cap room to sign players you need.

    Even if they didn't win the draft lottery I would still do the rest.

    Ottawa laughs and laughs--a guy you don't want, a huge cap hit gone and you get cheap star players. Nice to dream.
