Why? How is he any better now or have more upside than Studnicka- whom they had to put on waivers? I know the 5th isnt much...but this is just another body they didnt need. Studnicka and Aman have both looked good in preseason, I dont see how the addition of Lafferty is going to help the Nucks at all. Its one thing if they have a bunch of injuries....but outside of Mikheyev unknown status... theyre fine. They already sent down Dries...how is Lafferty any better? Canucks management of assets continues to be horrible.
Feel like Toronto can easily replace him with a league minimum guy. They got value back as well. W for Toronto
He was good in the dot and physical. The Leafs will not replace him with the same quality. In the end it isn't a big deal as he played in the bottom of the lineup, but it was a loss simply as the gm f***Ed up the cap.
