    27 yr old Lee had 36 goals last season and 40 goals this season. He salary will be $5m in 2018-2019, although his caphit will be $3.7m.
    He is a ufa in July 2019.

    Unless the isles circle back to CDH and both sides bend on an extension, isles may have to trade one of their more productive scorers like Lee to add a top 4 LHD.
    Who is available that Lee could land?

    Arizona and OEL? Similar age and gives Keller an elite winger and one of the best net-front presence in the league.

    Jake Gardiner? Similar age and both UFAs after next year.

    Given Marner's PP ability to get the puck infront of the net(to JVR and Kadri) it would be interesting seeing those 2(Lee and Marner) together

    Personally, I'd want someone better than Gardiner or more with him in a trade, I think Lee is >> Gards. Maybe Gards + 1st for Lee + 3rd? Seems more fair to me.

    Wait, why the hell am I trying to help out the Isles, lol

    Isles were reported to have interest in JVR last offseason when Toronto was bidding for Hamonic, but the deal fell apart when JVR wouldn't agree to an extension with the Islanders. Especially with money clearing up this offseason, I could see Snow flipping Lee for defense help and then signing JVR to fill his spot as a top-6 net presence power forward.

    I have little interest in Gardiner. Imo Leafs fans overrate him. I have had this discussion with Toronto fans and we are not changing each others minds.

    Not sure why a player who refused to sign a nyi extension, would later sign on as a ufa.

    All you have to do is use their own GDT against them - not a lot of Gardiner fans in that thread full of Leafers...

    The point of moving Lee would be to address the team's biggest need, while keeping both 1st rounders.

    Yeah I just figured the bruins wouldn’t have any need for lee without shipping out a LW. And heinen and carlo for lee isn’t worth it for them without the addition of a 1st

    From Canucks, probably Edler would make the most sense.

    If so, no thanks.

    Islanders would prefer a LHD who can match up against opposing team’s top line.

    de Haan was that guy for the Islanders and Hickey (who was servicable) is going to walk. Leddy is not someone who you match up against opposing team’s top lines.

    Obviously if there is a RHD who can match up against opposing team’s top lines that becomes available, I’m sure the Islanders would be interested and would just hope that they can pair him with Adam Pelech and form a formidable pairing.

    Not that I'm saying Gardiner is a great player or anything but the Leafs' GDT is not really the best place to get reasonable reactions lol
