    hehe I mentioned same thing right at the beginning of this thread. 2 points each. they’re nice goals and Dubas probably wanted Suomela as an undrafted free agent.

    I dont think it looks bad at all.
    Leafs tried them and things didnt really work out. they got the chance to make a top team in the NHL when things didnt go well. Dubas found a place for them to have another chance.
    I think that pipeline should stay strong. Dubas always doing whats right for the players going back to Josh Leivo.

    Dubas gives those guys opportunities and then moves them to the best possible location regardless of whether they get the best return or not.

    Fairly sure we are very popular destination because we can offer immediate ice time for them and they can cash in soon after.

    I actually don't see a problem here. They saw the Leafs did right by them by trading them to another team in if things don't work out as hoped. It would be worse if they kept them in the minors, instead the Leafs made sure they could stay in the NHL

    Well you missed a huge list of fails. Yet they keep showing up that trains over when the cash for scouting gets capped.

    There's also Seattle coming into the league with 2 farm clubs.With the need for around 70 hockey players etc. There will that many more opportunities in the near future.

    I like that the Leafs are willing to take a chance on some of these lesser known European players, and, if things do not work out they move them on to give them a better chance elsewhere. That has to play within agent circles as a good avenue to get to North America, even if it doesn't work out with the Leafs in the end.

    I didn't mind him, he showed some flashes but was knocked off the puck way too easily for an NHLer. Hope he finds a landing spot, my guess is back to the K.

    My only nitpick here is I would have preferred any draft pick over the warm body, given what went out in other trades.

    Maybe someone to re-sign to be on the Marlies for when the young Finnish guys start coming to NA?

    From Dobber Prospects
    Suomela has the skills to step in to San Jose’s top six and produce, but it may take time for his skills to transition. Think Joonas Donskoi but slightly better

    NHL certainty 6.8

    My thoughts exactly. A little surprised he didn’t get a pick instead for Barabanov to try and soften the blow a little bit.

    Barabanov is a pending UFA who can't crack the NHL, nobody is giving up a pick for that.

    If top Europeans come to Toronto expecting to be given a spot instead of earning it, then I don’t want them on the Leafs anyways.....

    My guess is he wanted to get the Marlies some Support because they haven't been very good.

    Justin Holl is 29. he brokeout for us at 28.
    Never know when a guy will break out. sometimes change of scenery is all a player needs. hopefully he does better than whats expected of him for us

    To be fair, the only reason he broke out so late is because babcock wouldn't play him.
