    Well....Kadri is 28 years old. It's an obvious choice if you were truly forced to choose between the two. Nylander is already a 60 point player and hasn't even finished developing.

    The second statement is correct and just a fact. For what he offers, Kadri's contract is a steal and makes him appealing to all teams... including us.


    We're not in a position to have to choose between the two so shouldn't be a worry... however if Kadri can get you the top 4 D and you get to keep Nylander, I am confident no GM in the league chooses to expose of Nylander instead.

    We're a long, long, long way from needing to choose between Kadri and Nylander.

    This media is goddamn insufferable, made far worse by the fact that some folks will eat up every single word as if it's gospel.

    Pierre Dorion and Marc Bergevin are NHL executives.
    Think about that.

    What's the confusion?
    I wouldn't want to see Kadri moved but at his cap hit he would be appealing to other teams.

    Theres a handful of other guys the Leafs would trade to clear salary before Kadri. These guys are morons.

    Yeah, I'm sure he'd be super appealing to teams that are in or are going to be in cap trouble, kinda like the Leafs.

    Kadri is a great team player.

    He really wants to stay in Toronto.

    He's a Leaf to the end and would take a lower AAV to prove it.

    Not going anywhere.

    If we are trading because of cap issues, we wouldn't trade our best caphit/production player

    Plus unlike Nylander he has a ntc

    I guess they would have to balance that against the potential return.
    "Wouldn't" is too definite, more like 'it's doubtful'.

    TSN has been coming out with some pretty stupid **** lately. That Who's Trading Nylander game bit was particularly cringe worthy.

    From the Leaf perspective, is Kadri the player you trade if the motivation is cap space? From the other team's perspective, can they take on that contract without sending salary back? Think the Leafs would look elsewhere on the roster first.

    We don't really have a ready replacement for him either. Nylander would figure to be even more expensive for the role, don't see Marleau making sense there full-time, and Lindholm might not have that ceiling, in addition to this being too early to contemplate that anyway.

    Trade the guy who took a team friendly deal grew up in the area and bleeds blue and white. Keep the guy who demands to be overpaid who is influenced by a hired gun primarily (solely?) motivated by money. Sure.

    I don't think it's a choice between Nylander and Kadri but with Gardiner also looking for a new contract cap issue could possibly play into the scenario.

    I think Marleau may be asked to release the Leafs from the NMC and as his contract was front loaded he is only getting 1.5 mill, which could make other teams take notice Patrick Marleau

    I'm not sure he would be re-signed here or just retire but at 39 he is still a viable player but cap and time may be a deciding factor, his calming effect and veteran presence for Matthews and other players, can't be over stated?

    Basically confirms Kadri isnt being traded.
    Dreger isnt reliable, so when he says something, better not to believe it.

    Strange how random twitter thinks we have an abundance of quality D to shed.
    Did they forget we also have 2 top 4 D UFA next year?

    You're trying to save money. Zaitsev is easily replaceable at his salary and value. Kadri is not.

    For fun lets play the next few games without Gardiner/Hainsey and Zaitsev.
    I don't think he's easily replaceable when you have nothing to replace.
    I don't want to move Kadri either but depending on how much you commit to Nylander, then the other 2, will you be letting Gardiner walk?
    At some point, people will have to go. Maybe more than 1.
    If you can't afford Kadri and Zaitsev at 4 million each, you're paying too much in other places.

    If I remember correctly, the Kadri household cheered for the Bleu, blanc et rouge when Nazem was growing up. I think his Dad would be thrilled if his son was traded to the Habs!

    So, sure, he bleeds blue and white for now, but, I'm sure there's still a hint of red in there too. ;)
