    Anyone else think we try him on the left side to play with Weber? At least for a few games to see how he does.

    I always wanted to see this. Apparently it was done once during preseason and Petry didn't like it. I'd actually prefer Weber on the left so he could uncork his one-timer all night, not just on the pp.

    And he was 23rd last year. Offensively, he's a #1D

    I want to see them on the top pair whichever way it works

    If you split them up opponents will attack our left D all night long

    Michelle tried it in preseason just a little. He plays his off side just fine. He liked being paired with Weber, in fact he loved it.

    If Weber is paired with Reilly, I'm afraid he will beat up Reilly before anyone else.. LOL

    It comes down to what strategy you prefer vs you vs Bergevin.

    My strategy? I'm not desperate to trade Petry but I would be engaging in trade value for him. Why? Cause we have a team that is in transition to youth and we have a position of strength... RD. Would I trade him for cheap? Hell no!

    Where there is a popular approach and then there is a ranking that reviews actual production. Sportsnet's article was not saying Petry was the 13th best defenseman undisputedly. They reviewed 3 years of production and that's where he fell. Fast forward to this season and Petry is 7th in NHL scoring at the moment.

    Most people would not have Petry as a top pairing defenseman but he has produced in this role. What does this tell you? Do you ignore it? The point here is Petry is better than most are willing to admit.

    I'm not against the idea of moving Petry assuming we can get a similar kind of return to what we had for Pacioretty.

    If all we can get is a low 1st round pick? Might as well keep him.

    It's not realistic to consider moving him anyway considering the sort of predicament Bergevin finds himself in. He needs to make the playoffs to salvage his job, and trading Petry wouldn't help in that regard.

    Theres no way he would get less than a 1st+good prospect at this point. I dont think we trade him because bergevin thinks that we can make the playoffs and defense is already a big issue.

    I talked about this before. I think it would be smart to move Petry to the Left side. It open up various options for us he can handle it.

    AAAA / Weber
    Petry / Juulsen
    Quellet / Schlemko

    Alzner, Mete or Reilly

    - AAAA: Can be Mete or Reilly
    - Benn should be traded for a 4th or 5th pick. If we don't get bites, send Alzner down to the AHL. Pretty simple if you ask me. We owe Alzner nothing cause he has done nothing for us so far.

    Trying Petry on the left side makes logical sense to me.... if he is up for the new role. Pretty sure he would be OK with it.

    - Petry ($1.5M retained)
    for
    - Sandin
    - 2019 1st
    - 2020 2nd
    - Horton's uninsured contract

    Pretty sure this is a workable deal for the Leafs. Petry for 4 more years at $4M would be a steal. I hate helping them out but if we can get a futures return like this, I'm game.

    Not sure what problem having Petry on the left side solves. Is it just so that Juulsen can play on the top 4? Personally, I think he's fine learning the ropes on the 3rd pair for now.

    Reilly and Mete should be the top 2 LDs. After that we have a revolving doors of outcasts that can jump in on the third pair. Ouellet and Schlemko are fine. I'd try to move Benn and Alzner sooner than later. They bring nothing to this team.

    It solves a problem cause we then would have a better top 4D vs what we have now.

    Mete / Weber
    Quellet / Petry
    Reilly / Juulsen

    Benn, Alzner

    How much better is it? Not sure but we should try moving Petry on the Left side. I think our top 4D would be better and have more size/mobility. We suck defensevily at the moment. Moving Juulsen to the 3rd pairing after Weber comes back does what for us?

    Mete or Reilly / Weber
    Petry / Juulsen

    Don't care what combo we use on the 3rd pairing from game to game.

    We could probably get a similar return without the retention and taking on Horton’s contract

    Hard to say. If we can, I'm all for it. But the offer I showed you is very workable and it sparks interest from the Leafs. I've studied the Leafs cap situation very closely starting next year and there is a reason why I retained. Habs don't need that cap space so we should use it somehow.

    This deal works for both teams in more ways than one.

    Why Ouellet on the 2nd pair and Reilly on the 3rd? Just roll

    Mete/Reilly - Weber
    Reilly/Mete - Petry
    Schlemko/Ouellet - Juulsen

    Problem solved
