    Called it on the main board that Canucks traded for him. Classic Benning! Loses a player on waivers then has to go out and trade for a similar player. I was expecting him to trade a pick though. Guy doesn’t realize you can make waiver claims too

    Well done Van. Leivo is a good kid and a better player than Babs used him as
    He'll get you some goals and some good board work.

    Absolutely nothing, didn't know him, never heard about him and I'm a season ticket holder. He was a walk on tryout AHL player.

    Leivo better prove it was Babcock keeping him down and not his own inability to translate his game to the pros... Carcone was showing some skill in the A, sucks for Utica as they lose a winger and don't even get Leipsic because he was claimed

    Sounds like a guy buried on another team's depth chart. Colour me a cynic, but our management team has a terrible track record with these. I suppose something about a broken clock, yadayadayada, might apply.

    I'm a Leafs fan that hates your team and your fans.

    You'll like Leivo a lot, if given the opportunity he'll surprise a lot of people.

    Leivo wasn't bad last year, guy got buried on an insanely talented team

    At least he'll be better than Michael Carcone who will never play an NHL game in his life

    Another good, possibly great trade by Benning. At 6 foot 2 he should be a much better option than Leipsic and all it costed was a guy who will probably never be an NHL regular.

    This is a win for us. Very glad we didn't trade a pick. This guy instantly becomes one of our better healthy wingers (this says more about us, than him) and should help Horvat's line.

    Leivo should have been given a better opportunity in Toronto. He has a wicked shot and is a monster along the boards. You won this deal hands down.

    Best-case scenario is they've had enough of Schaller and he is waived as the corresponding move.

    Not so sure about this one. Carcone was just starting to explode in Utica and has big league speed. Leivo is what he is....a guy you could have replaced in free agency for nothing had you done a better job scouting than we did on Tim Schaller who has been absolute junk.

    If we were in win now mode then i like it and i do like Leivo as a bottom 6

    Leivo is pretty solid Canucks fans. Leafs never gave him a fair shake for some reason.

    He's honestly a good player who our coach showed notable bias against. Leivo is very strong on the boards and honestly has some decent puck skills. He's gonna fit in very well in Vancouver.

    He looked good in prospect tournaments. Horrible last year in the AHL. Looks like he figured it out this year as he is one of the Comets best offensive forwards in November. Small skill player but plays with speed and intensity. Probably not going to be an NHL player but eventually he might look ok riding shotgun next to one of your dynamic duos while their regular linemate is injured.

    Lol all these leaf fans sound like Bruin fans talking about Schaller

    Leivo stinks and won’t move the needle at all, the only plus here is we didn’t move a pick for more age gap junk

    The negative is Utica is even worse off

    If we can throw him next to Horvat and have him statpad before dumping him at the deadline I'll be happy.

    Will be fascinating to see how this turns out.

    It might be a Granlund-Shinkaruk 'win' where 'the guy played games for us' albeit as a fringe player.

    Might also be an epic blunder as Carcone was easily the best forward in Utica right now. I don't like at all that we've traded him without seeing how his speed plays against NHL opposition.

    Would have made a hell of a lot more sense to claim Zykov and keep Carcone.
