    They are working on a contract with Amirov right now. Thats great.
    I noticed the cap remaining would allow Andersen to come off of LTIR approximately in 2 weeks time if I understand the cap correctly. Which I entirely might not?
    Solid job and when the team becomes a legitimate contender as they have, losing draft pick are not concerning. They become the cost of doing business. Covered all the depth basis. Foligno be acquired is a huge trade for my personal perspective. I believe he brings confidence,good spirit and competitiveness to a very high degree. Nash is a pick up i like for the improvement he adds on the defensive side of the puck too. Both Nick & Nask kill penalties also. I look forward to the intensity they might exhibit on that.

    All the acquisitions fit nicely to a already solid defensively structured team they have become before these adds. I like it lots.

    Top 9 winger (two if you want to count the Galy trade from earlier), backup goalie, a 4C, and a D man and the 2nd most valuable asset the Leafs gave up was a 3rd round pick. Probably the best Leafs tdl we've seen in a while

    I don't think there was a single other piece I'm envious about going to another team. Savard maybe would have been nice, but not at that price.

    D...and F...and G. ;) I definitely like the looks of it on paper. Hopefully it all comes together to produce an A on the ice.

    'A' for filling the needs of the team.

    I would say "B" he did everything he could do to help the team win. Got the depth C, got the battle winger, depth D and platoon goalie. It will be upgraded to an "A" if they do win, since results matter.

    B+

    Love that he addressed every area of need, thought Foligno was a good target, although the price to acquire was steep. Glad he stayed away from Hall or guys of that ilk. Like Hutton, wanted Oleksiak, like Rittich, wouldve preferred one of Columbus' goalies. Nash was perfect.

    Basically he did what I wanted, but not how I wanted him to do it.

    Based on what I have seen of Robertson, he is not yet ready for playoff hockey. Let him finish the year with the Marlies, have another summer to train, and we'll see in the fall if he is able to make the squad for next season.

    Silly take considering every team has to overpay at the deadline to get what they want. There’s a reason all the top contenders were in on foligno

    Those saying he overpaid for Foligno are probably the same people whining about lack of toughness. Other teams were also willing to pay a 1st and Foligno was able to choose where he wanted to go.

    Every move that Dubas made was with purpose, while keeping all top end prospects, staying under the cap, and not touching core of roster.

    We needed a top 6 winger with grit. We got Foligno who not only provides grit but leadership.

    We needed a 3rd/4th line center that is great defensively/PK. We got Nash.

    We needed a depth dman. We got Hutton.

    We needed goaltender insurance. We got Rittich.

    What else could we have expected him to do. Its an A+ all around.

    How can anyone complain - filled all the needs/wants without giving up a roster player (other than Barabanov) and any prospects, all while being capped out (along with so many other teams). This is a solid, gritty, tough to play against team, built for a playoff run.

    I think whether he got the exact player you wanted or not, we all have to agree he addressed the needs.

    Overpaid for Foligno but that is the price of being a contender.

    Only have 6 of our next 14 picks, but in 2020 if you include Hallander, he essentially drafted 13 players.

    Still have all of our top prospects.

    You can nitpick here or there, especially if you don't like him. At this point, it's on the players going forward.

    I have him an A- as he definitely shored up weak points on the team while losing basically nothing (our farm isn’t empty and that European pipeline makes up for whatever we lack in draft picks) fact is for the first time in a LONG time we are a truly desirable place to play...he could have done marginally better as could anyone as nobody is perfect but he did as well as I could have hoped for based on our cap structure and the availability in the trade market...glad he didn’t pursue Taylor hall as the guy seems to be a diva and cancer in a room (here’s hoping he adds that cancer to Boston) he is learning quickly and I think he is going to be a phenomenal GM through his career as he isn’t opposed to changing his thought process on the fly

    A.

    He traded for one of my preferred forwards and addressed forward, defense and goalie depth. Not much more you can ask for.

    B+...but could move to an A if the Foligno vs. Hall decision turns out our way.

    B+/A-

    Hit on basically every need though costs can vary depending on how you view Foligno

    I wish we got Zadarov/Oleksiak vs Hutton but still happy he saw the need for a depth d-men and addressed it.

    I wanted Hall but it's pretty clear he didn't want to come and forced his way to Boston.

    We got tougher, better defensively, and added depth. Liked the deadline like o liked the Offseaso

    Can't rate him until Foligno plays at least 1 game IMO. I like the steps but we won't honestly know if they were enough until we get into the playoffs. They don't need to win the Cup for the TDL to have been a success as that falls on the existing core players, not the adds. After watching Campbell's recent play the Rittich deal looks extremely good as they aren't an injury away from rolling with Hutch in the playoffs. Its a deep team.
