Discussion in 'Toronto Maple Leafs' started by Cor, May 4, 2020.
This comes a bit out of no where. Didn’t hear the Leafs connected at all.
Rielly, Muzzin, Dermott, Sandin, Lehtonen would be 5 LHD... makes me wonder if Dermott could be trade bait.
Would they be crazy enough to use Reilly as trade bait?
I would bet against it, but crazier things have happened
Left handed and below 6'5
You are a joke Dubas
Pretty sure you’ve gotta be at least 8’ tall and ambidextrous to appease this fan base
The problem with being ambidextrous is that you aren’t solely a right handed shot you see
The mainboards clearly did not want us to get him and we got him.
It should be interesting to see them all do a 180 on their opinion of him.
Crazier things have happened, but unless they really think Liljegren can't handle the NHL and want to play both Rielly and Dermott on their off-side then something will have to give. I can't imagine Lehtonen would sign to play in the AHL.
He looks like a stud. Wanted the Habs to sign him. Nice get for you guys.
Seems like a Marlies move
I really like this contract. He was best D-man in Europe in this season. I have seen his develop during last 5 seasons and I think he is 100% NHL ready. Good deal!
This guy was the best defenseman outside of the NHL last season. Why in the world would it be a Marlies move?
This is a signing I like. Lehtonen has nothing to prove here in Europe and I think he'll be in the NHL right away. At this point Marincin is the odd man out and that leaves Rosen and Liljegren to fight for being the 8th d-man.
I'm just happy to see something hockey related.
Hopefully they can squeeze some hockey in here somehow still this summer.
Who do you see him playing over?
Have you watched him? I personally haven't seen anything of him.
Should anything outside of a bottom pairing defender be expected?
Kudos for not being one to change your opinion on a player solely because of where they signed
Rumours said he was favoured to go to Devils, Habs ... zero mention of the leafs
nice pick up Dubby
All I heard was LA, NJ etc. in the rumors. What a stud signing by Dubie!
I can't back this up in any way, but I feel like the way Dubas treated Mikheyev after his wrist injury made other KHL players consider the Leafs more.
"Kyle went above and beyond his duty," Dan Milstein, the player’s agent, told Sportsnet in an interview.
That included not only spending the better part of three days keeping him company in hospital, but also going out to personally buy him clothes and other personal effects, according to Milstein.
