I have absolutely no issues IF the Leafs fail to advance yet again out of the 1st Round. With 2022 record setting regular season Leafs (54 wins and points), Matthews getting 60 goals (Hart nominee), Marner (97 points), Nylander (career high in goals + assists), Tavares (76 points), Liljegren taking a big step in his development, the additions of Kampf + Bunting (Calder nominee), losing to the two time Stanley Cup Champions in 7 games in the 1st round that SHOULD have been a Conference Final.

All of the core players showed up:
Auston Matthews - 8 points
William Nylander - 7 points
Mitchell Marner - 7 points
John Tavares - 6 points
Morgan Rielly - 5 points

Jack Campbell played extremely well and kept them in games when they fell down early.

I do not foresee any major changes to the team outside of a Nylander trade who since December has been stapled to the 3rd line. A series win or loss, I fully expected Nylander to be traded this summer even if I don’t agree with it.

I really hope tonight is the night for this core but if not, this was the first playoffs where I can say I am super proud with the effort given by the CORE PLAYERS. I will always bleed blue and white.

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Devil</b></div><div>What does everyone think of this?

New Jersey trades: NJD 2022 1st (2 OA), NJD 2022 3rd (69 OA) (nice)
Columbus trades: CBJ 1st via Chicago (6 OA), CBJ 1st (12 OA)

<img class="for_img" src="https://cdn.theathletic.com/app/uploads/2020/05/06155402/Screen-Shot-2020-05-05-at-4.55.33-PM.png?_gl=1*p4scb0*_ga*VXZyY2JVU2hZREhnelk1UktZNTc4ME90cVlpSHF5ZzA0NFJ5QWxIb0V1LUc3NnRwS3VmRnpKVDlpVVFCNjgwLQ.." alt="Screen-Shot-2020-05-05-at-4.55.33-PM.png?_gl=1*p4scb0*_ga*VXZyY2JVU2hZREhnelk1UktZNTc4ME90cVlpSHF5ZzA0NFJ5QWxIb0V1LUc3NnRwS3VmRnpKVDlpVVFCNjgwLQ..">

According to the chart above, this would be the value of the picks
Pick 2: 12.3
Pick 69: 0.9
Pick 6: 7.6
Pick 12: 5.5

12.3 + 0.9 = 13.2
7.6 + 5.5 = 13.1

Basically identical values and logically this makes sense

Columbus moves up to take Logan Cooley who will be their 1C of the future (Kent Johnson at 2C or 1LW)
NJ moves downs and still ends up with Kemell or Jiricek at 6 (they pick Jiricek for the sake of this scenario).

But wait its not done
Then NJ uses the 12th pick + Pavel Zacha to acquire Kevin Fiala from Minnesota. Fiala resigns long term with the Devils

Devils future top 6 and top 4
Holtz-Hughes-Mercer
Fiala-Hischier-Bratt
Hughes-Hamilton
Smith-Jiricek</div></div>


I love these charts, I think actual teams use them as well. In football the bills have there own chart that they make and they use that, along with there prospect board to discuss draft trades. Pretty cool actually.

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>yikes</b></div><div>Imo picking first is always a double edged blade. You get the first pick but the criticism/ expectations that follows is immense.

Like you’re going Wright regardless - but imo I’d much rather 2-7 in most drafts unless it’s Bedard or McDavid. But that’s obvious. 2-7 is always my preference because you’ll have BPA, positional needs, and fall candidates. Like Eklund is a good example even if he surmounts to a 2nd liner (I believe in his elite talent🥰) there was no reason to not pick him. Or someone like Quinn; who coulda went as high as top 5 but he falls.

You either succeed from not over thinking it at 1st, or you fail because you didn’t think twice. Then you have Makars and Miro and so on.</div></div>

I think one of the bad things about the NHL draft and the fact that your drafting 17-18 year olds is that you don't know what they are going to be physically. Like Wright is 6' right and has always been bigger and more dominant than the kids his age, kind of like Lafreniere. So its scary because they won't ever be that person again, unless your talking Owen Power who is 6'6'. But take a guy like Matthews, or McDavid, Bedard, or even Dahlin. Bedard is smaller but still dominant because of his other skills, Mcdavid was the same way although maybe bigger he was dominant because he has elite speed. Matthews and Dahlin where very good as underagers playing against men, so your not running the risk of a player being dominant because of there physical size. NHL players are never good just because they are way bigger.

But thats all older news, I think the best example today is Raymond vs Lafreniere. Raymond was very good but not dominant in the SHL, Lafreniere was one of the best QMJHL players ever. Raymond is the better NHLer now.
