    Where do you think these two will land?

    I think Brodie lands in Toronto seeing as Dubas had a deal done for him once already so I think he tries again.

    Vatanen I could see in Boston if Krug walks

    Where do you think they land

    Hopefully Flames keep Brodie, but I'm thinking we don't

    I hope we keep him too. The deal for Brodin has me a bit worried about what Brodie gets though. They are very comparable players. Hopefully Brodie being 3 years older keeps the number and term down.

    Toronto is not a destination for Brodie or Vatanen.

    The Leafs should be looking for bigger veteran defenseman such as Byfuglien, Borowiecki or Gudas.

    I’d take a look at Brodie as Boston fan.
    2-3 year deal

    They already had agreed to a deal for Brodie once so they probably try again.

    Gudas would be a nice bottom pair addition

    Would love NJ to bring in Brodie, they are desperate for help on the left side and have the cap space to pay him whatever he wants. We need veterans who can sponge up minutes, especially after trading Greene. Would help ease in Ty Smith and help shelter Butcher/make him expendable.

    It was also rumored that Shero was kicking tires on Brodie last summer before the Subban trade went through. Interesting to think about how differently things could have gone.

    The question is if he wants to chase a Cup, because NJ can't offer him that right now.

    That is interesting I wonder where Subban would have ended up.

    The Leafs have multiple holes at RD. Gudas or Boro would be good bottom pair adds but they would still need an all situations RD for the top pair. Hopefully a premier shutdown type like Tanev.

    Last season the RD were
    Ceci
    Holl
    Barrie

    They could stand to replace all three, though they can't afford to replace Holl.

    Boston needs an LD to ease Chara's minutes and replace Krug. No fit for Vatanen. Brodie is the right handedness but maybe not the right style. A steadier simpler partner for McAvoy might work better.

    xxxx - McAvoy
    Grezylcyk - Carlo
    Chara - Clifton

    I think we could use a top pair dman like Brodie a lot more than Mark Borowiecki.

    Just so everyone knows, Brodie plays RD.

    He is far far better on his offside.

    I figure he will either stay with the Flames or sign with Detroit(close to home, was his team growing up) or Toronto.

    Vat could go just about anywhere.

    There's rumours of Brodie heading to a sunbelt team, retiring outright, and re-signing with the Flames.

    He's definitely not headed to Toronto though. I could see Ottawa

    No there aren't that wouldn't even make sense. You aren't leaving Calgary, going south, immediately retiring and then going to Calgary again I'm not even sure that's allowed

    Gudas is not what they need, he is a fringe #6

    No I meant that post as three separate rumours, not one rumour with three steps to it

    They need to upgrade the bottom pair too.

    I see, still not sure why he'd go Ottawa over Toronto right now though.

    Brodie and Brodin are the same.
    They almost have the same name.
    Both LD.
    Have we seen them both at the same time, same place? Never!
    Conclusion : they both are the same guy in two different disguises.
