<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>GiggywithGibby</b></div><div>I think the accusation about Peeke not being able to break the lineup isn't accurate, the reality is they had 4 NHL defensemen on the right to start the year, then Jiricek pushed his way onto the roster. He's not top 4 by any belief, but he's an adequate bottom 4 shot blocker and hit thrower. Boqvist should really switch to wing at this point, the offense is there, always has been, but the guy never developed defensive awareness, but that makes him a somewhat natural Klingberg slot in.
All the guys you mentioned were LD, are you content to push McCabe to his off wing and hope for the best with Brodie McCabe Timmins as a right side if it means bringing in a true top 4 for the left?</div></div>
Tanev, Larsson, Walker are all Right Shot RD.
And we also have Lily on the right.
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>jaok3</b></div><div>You can't give all the cap increase to Willie, that just keeps the leafs in the same issue they are in right now. Willie is a 10M guy, there is no doubt he is a real good player. Negatives- He takes off shifts, floats, doesn't PK, d-zone laziness, won't go in the dirty areas. Positives- Great skater, lethal shot, can control the play, opportunist is his greatest strength.</div></div>
I agree with you. I wouldn't go higher than 10.5m on Willy. I was just saying that I would not be surprised if a team out there would pay 12-13m a year for him. Free agency can get super nuts sometimes, especially in an up cap year. Leafs should definitely not touch that.
