    You do realize you're the one who wrote that he was a better defender.

    You may be right, you may be wrong, but if you're right, the Leafs would be better with him on the roster.

    Holl has a cheaper caphit

    I'm not a leafs fan and idk if Marinicin is better than holl or not, but from an outsider's perspective, this def seems like a cap move. I'm sure holl being a right shot factored into this decision as well

    He has a good enough skill set to be an NHLer but I get the sense the NHL is a little to quick for him. I love his puck pursuit but outside of that at the NHL level hasn't checked off any boxes. He struggles the make the plays he needs to in the important areas of the ice.

    Relied too much on his size and strength advantage in junior. Unfortunately he hasn't improved the other areas of his game since then.

    What's the reason for the Sens moving him to the wing permanently? He used to be pretty good on the draw IIRC.

    He has played a bit in the middle, even this year but for me it comes back to the game being too fast. Too often he has space and should be able to make a simple play but he is unable to.

    I think Ellie would be a great player for the Senators to take a look at also they should get Wideman back for a solid third line at a good price.

    Elie is a fast checking winger who does very little else. Fringe NHL player . Pretty inept on offense especially . Even during his time in the AHL with Texas he never really managed to show much . If you have coaches who love players who do nothing but check like Hitchcock sure use him but if your coach 4th liner do something else besides checking he's not worth it.

    Still not sure "great" is the right word i'd just for Elie. He can be ok.

    I haven't seen any tweets about this but according to Capfriendly Montreal's Karl Alzner (D) and Philly's Corban Knight (C) are on waivers.

    Odd on Snuggerud. Wonder if it’s unconditional waivers...

    Probably retiring. He has had a few concussions already and might not want to risk his well-being any more than he has to.

    I hope he clears. What do people think? Does Agostino get claimed?

    Probably not.

    He’s an odd case. He seems like he’s decent enough to stick around as a bottom 6’er for a team but he’s only 26 and has already been in 5 organizations.

    I hope you're right! Habs could use the depth.

    Their AHL team needs a veteran scorer. Agostino was first hired to do that before being called up in October.
