    Glad you asked.

    I'd definitely keep them both over Brown & Hyman (see what I did there?).

    But Johnsson probably has top 5 scoring motivation:

    "Happy fills my whole body"

    You can't teach that.

    Kappy.

    Ridiculous speed, plays with some grit, PK and also has moments where he is super clutch.

    If I had to pick One it would be AJ, but I think Kappy is the better player

    More valuable position to us right now, if Willy plays good than Kappy won't see anything other than 3rd line. AJ should already be a top 6 LW on the leafs.

    P/60 - even strength
    Marner 3.48
    JT 3.42
    Matthews 3.34
    AJ 2.65
    Kappy 2.28
    Hyman 2.15

    He is producing really solid, just not seeing the ice time needed to produce higher.

    Would miss Kappy's speed and PKin.

    If you are going to use a deragotary nickname for Nylander ( which you shouldn't if you want to appear like a knowledgeable hockey fan), at least use a good one like Melander or Greedlander. Benchlander doesn't sound like Nylander nor is it an accurate description of his occupation or playing time.

    I'd likely say Kapanen otherwise, but I would probably opt to retain Johnsson due to the LW/RW situation. Think Kapanen would have the stronger trade value of the two though.

    Trade Brown - keep both.

    Simple solution.

    Goal scoring: Small sample size to further your biased opinion.
    PK: Out of the three players only Kapanen plays the PK so what's the point of including this category?
    Or, you could add shootout/penalty shot based on % taken (see it works both ways).
    3 on 3: Nylander wins no contest.
    Skating: Kapanen is faster, but Nylander has the better edges and smoother skating style and is the better skater.

    That’s why I picked him too surprised to see such a landslide win for Kap

    Probably higher potential for Kap but that also means a better return since we probably won’t have him for his prime anyways

    Thats your opinion. Objectively Nylander is much more talented than Kappy or Johnsson - its not that close. You'll see

    AJ here is a no brainer for Leafs. We just traded Grundstrom and can't afford to lose another excellent LW because we want to stack the RW. Kapanen is redundant.

    It's not about having tools, it's about how and what your brain can process and that aspect is heavily disregarded by you.

    If we rate them on that reagrd it will be Nylander > Johnsson > Kapanen.

    Kap is faster and he creates havoc with his speed. And he is good on PP. But his offence is very limited. AnJo is more creative.

    And Zailsev
    Maybe Kadri as well

    Slid Nylander or Marleau in the 3 center position.

    I have never really considered this angle for some reason, but as a poster above mentioned, Hyman should probably go before either guy as well, assuming we are talking about cap issues rather than "hockey trades."
