    Add DeAngelo a right hand shot D with potential. People have questioned his attitude & work ethic-(nobody questions his skill set)-maybe the Leafs coaching staff can take him on as a project.

    Johnsson- good skill has proved himself in the AHL - now needs ice time to prove his worth. NYR can give him the ice time he needs to show what he can do.

    2nd rd pick another asset for the rebuilding Rangers...

    If you had consistently watched ADA last season and this year so far, I think your opinion would differ. Johnsson doesn't help the Rangers. A late 2nd is meh. ADA has already shown he's the most creative dmen on our team. And he hasn't had "issues" with his work ethic or attitude.

    His value to the Rangers is greater than the proposal.

    -Rangers fan.

    Is DeAngelo still a headcase who doesn't know how to play D?

    Not as a Ranger. His D is what you'd expect from a young, inexperienced offensive dmen. His creativity and passing is ridiculous though. He creates plays out of nothing. Tape to Tape 100+ foot passes. He's pretty tenacious too. Will throw his body and gets physically engaged.

    The only thing this kid really needs is ice time to finish developing. He's still just a 22 year old kid.

    Now you’re just being a homer. He has had issues with his attitude

    Is being the most creative d-man on the Rangers really an accomplishment?

    Yes, when you consider Skjei has talent offensively, and Shattenkirk is an offensive Dmen. Don’t forget Pionk who put up 14p in 31gp his rookie season last year.

    I think Toronto will take a pass on acquiring the attitude problems. No need to trade out a useful player like Johnsson for someone who according to all reports has the hallmarks of a future locker-room cancer.

    Yeah no way Rangers do this with the way Deangelo has looked this season. I know everyone that hasn't followed the Rangers has soured on him but he's been a stud

    His defense has really come along. I wouldn't call it near good but he isn't a liability now. It's inconsistent, but promising that he's making an effort to round out his game

    No thank you. No interest in DeAngelo at all, especially not at that price.

    Toronto's 2nd rounder will likely be very late and I don't think Rangers need Johnsson. Close though.

    Isn't DeAngelo the last type of defenseman the leafs need right now....

    I love Andreas Johnsson, but with the Leafs' wing depth, I'd consider it. ADA may be bonkers, but sometimes you go for the home run, talent-wise. To me though, it depends on how much of "attitude problems" is "mouths off to coaches" and how much is "lazy." I won't name names because I don't wanna start a fight, but there are plenty of a-holes in the NHL. The last guy who had a long career who I genuinely thought didn't give a **** was Alex Kovalev (tho, I understand the argument that we were too hard on Euros and Russians back then and maybe he was misunderstood).

    Sounds like exactly the kind of kid the Leafs should move their AHL playoff MVP + for.. Another bottom pairing level D who can't play defense but can put up points but won't because the top offensive minutes already go to the other two 50 point D on the roster.

    We had many guys like that already, most recently Carrick. Babs won't play him. He'll sit in the press box. No deal to be made here but I knew that before I even clicked the thread when I seen the OP.

    Not here, he hasn't and I'm always one to trash my own teams players when applicable.

    The leafs need more of a solid two way defender, not another puck moving type, I don't see them making a deal like this especially when they just moved Carrick to Dallas.

    Why is he a minus 150'ish throughout his career? (OHL + AHL + NHL).

    He's been a minus player on like 7 different teams?

    (I'm actually just asking because I don't know)

    And why did he switch from Anthony to Tony as an adult?

    Did he join the NJ mob?

    Wait... Are you using plus minus to judge someone...and going all the way back to juniors to do it?

    Yikes.
