    Great depth option, he played a good solid game yesterday and delivered this nice hit on Anderson

    Merrill has been un-good for Montreal. Actually horrendous so far.

    Hutton is a lot better at hockey than some posters are at English.

    I would gladly give two fifth-round picks to see a Leafs' defenceman plaster Anderson into the boards four games before the playoffs. I think the Leafs already have fair value for that pick -- even if he never played another game.

    Finished a few hits, including that nice one on Anderson, made simple plays, looks like solid bottom pairing depth to me. Would have no worries if he needed to play due to injuries.

    You missed a good game Saturday.
    Worry free hockey while Hutton was on and played physical. had a presence about him.

    And you obviously have not watched Merrill at all for Montreal have you. TIRE FIRE.

    YUP, a real shame Dubas didn't get him.

    I totally agree that late rounds are a crapshoot.

    Sometimes teams get lucky and find a gem.

    Leafs drafted Tomas Kaberle in the 8th round.

    I don’t know what people are complaining about. He’s decent and definitely a lot better than Marincin

    I feel like a decent portion of this board have liked Hutton since his Canucks days.

    He's looked solid in the games he's played.

    Would not mind at all if he's our 7th d-man next season.

    Yup, he's a nice fill in.

    I think that Sandin's been playing so well, that Hutton stepping in just shows how far ahead Sandin is. That doesn't takeaway from Hutton being a solid, reliable depth defender.

    That’s basically when Hutton is at his best.... you don’t want him filling in your top 4... or really him playing on a nightly basis.... but he’s a very good 7th dmen. It was a smart move to add him at the deadline as he’s been in the league for a while and if your young dmen struggle he is a capable back up plan

    I might be over simplifying but us Leaf fans do fall in love with their own players. I have been fretting about losing Dermott in the expansion draft.
    And up steps Hutton and his $900K salary and if Saturday is any indication Hutton can fill in on the bottom pair easily.

    Hutton showed a lot of promise right away when he stepped into the league here in Van. Has all the tools to be an every day D-Man, and realistically would be an everyday D-Man on 90% of NHL rosters. Think he wore out his welcome a bit here, although I won't speak for Canucks fans on that. I know my buddies who are Canucks fans liked him but also were frustrated with him because he couldn't take the next step in his game. There was a ton of hype when he first stepped in to the Canucks lineup, and I think the expectations got a bit too high too early. As for his game in TO. I think he is a perfect depth D-Man. Plug and play option, that can play 15+ mins at any given point. It was a sneaky good pickup by KD.

    I thought he was very good as well , but 1 game and “Hutton can fill in our bottom pair easily “
    Personally I think that’s a bit , ohhhh shall we say quick to determine ????
    We develop a nice DMan in our system for a number of years and a career 6 -7th d man can fill his role after one good game ??
    Sorry I can’t go their , not even close
    Go Leafs Go

    Might not be a popular opinion but until Bogo is back and healthy I would prefer the following D pairings

    Rielly Brodie
    Muzzin Holl
    Hutton Dermott

    Hutton can PK (reducing burden on other D-men) AND plays mean near the boards (required for the playoffs). Absolutely loved how he crushed Anderson near the boards

    Why does everyone assume Hutton is coming out for Sandin in the playoffs? If Bogo is ready obviously he's in over both but Hutton playing last game would indicate to me he's in over Sandin.

    Keefe said Sandin wouldn't play again due to salary cap issues going forward, the only possible reason for that is they need to clear space to activate Nash for the last 2 games (or Andersen although I don't see that or even think its possible), but you don't have to do anything until you actually activate Nash so there was no reason why Sandin couldn't have played last game. If they plan on activating Nash and intend on Sandin playing game 1 of the playoffs wouldn't you have played Sandin against the Habs so he could get one last game in before you don't have the cap space. In that scenario Hutton has to play the last 2 games anyway so it's not just a matter of getting Hutton into a game.

    I think they had a cap problem with Sandin, and wanted to see a bit more of Hutton before the puck drops for the playoffs.

    I don't remember the Leafs being this deep on defence since Pat Burns was coach-- and maybe before then.

    They weren't very deep when Burns was coach.

    They were 6 strong. But Berehowsky stunk.

    Yes, there used to be. Actually there used to be 9 rounds.

    NHL changed to 7 rounds in 2005

    If he does nothing else this year besides put Andersen on his ass, it was a trade well worth it. They mentioned Andersen hits on the last game he has something like 130 hits for the seasonal and 40ish are against the Leafs, This MFer likes to hit Leafs like I like to drink beer.

    The guy has played less than a full season against us and I already despise him as a player.

    I like what I've seen of him thus far. Smart, versatile player with a bit of grit.
