<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Trevorchef</b></div><div>Well... for starters, let me say this. It isn't so much that I don't like the additions that you've made here. The contrary is actually true. I like the players that you have added.

I just don't see it as enough change to make a difference.

There is a larger problem that keeps getting pushed under the rug in most of these posts. The Leafs are spending 40 million dollars on four forwards. As much as I like the players, I believe that is a poor dispersal of financial resources.

I think that all of their salaries are for the most part reasonable dollar values. (Perhaps Marner is slightly overpaid but, that is another story for a day long since past IMO).

I think it would be in the team's best interest to trade one of those salaries to properly allocate finances better. (I know that is not a popular opinion and so be it).

Tavares has a no move. Matthews isn't going anywhere and after Dubas' comments about Marner, neither is he. Who does that leave?

I really, really like Nylander. So much so that, were it up to me, I'd rather trade Marner and use his 11 million dollars of cap space to shore up in other areas. We all know that isn't happening. So there does that leave us. Basically right here with what you have produced, or something similar, which to me, just isn't good enough. (Again, that is my opinion and I know it isn't a shared one for the most part).

I could go a lot deeper but, I'm not going to. Lets just say, that there isn't anything that terrible about what you have produced here, and agree to disagree as you have already said. YOu've gotta give something of quality to get something of quality and for the most part, what you have here just doesn't move the needle enough for me to believe that things will be any different.

Fair enough?

I wish you good fortune in the wars to come.</div></div>

fair enough, I can see where you're coming from. Pre-covid it looked like the cap was on a steady incline making the big 4s contracts look not so bad in years 3-5/6.

I'd love to see them do it with the big 4 but if they can't Marner should be the first to go. hopefully the return is close to fair and nothing like the AGM's on here where the leafs retain 1.5 mill and get a second liner and a 1st rounder in 2022.

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Trevorchef</b></div><div>To me, this looks largely like the team that lost to CBJ in the play in round this year.

I like the idea of adding DeMelo but, I think that dollar value is low.

There simply isn't enough change here to make me believe that it is change for the better.

NO thanks.</div></div>

agree to disagree. Larsson plays hard competition in Buffalo with meh linemates and treds water, Fast is a hard forechecking player who can move up the lineup and compliment talent and is great on the pk. this replaces Kappy (bad defensively and allegedly bad off the ice, didn't mesh in the top 6) and Mango (I liked in the top 6, but 3.4 is hard to swallow in Toronto's situation, injury prone) with cheaper options who are better defensively and harder to play against.

I was real low on Barrie, he killed offence by taking too many low % shots, couldn't beat F1 on the breakout and was bad in his own end. Demelo is a great compliment to Reilly and rounds out the top 4. Also no more Ceci but Lehtonen is a wild card, could be better, but most likely a negligible difference

I think some growth will come internally (young stars, growth of Dermott and Sandin, Robertson lighting it up against other teams 4th lines) and better luck (better year from Freddy, shoot more the 2% 5v5 in round 1, less injuries, full year of Campbell and Keefe)

but the new additions will improve us defensively and as far as the 3rd line, there is more versatility and hard forecheckers. this makes us harder to target specific parts of our game in the playoffs and we still keep the top 6 that can matchup with any top 6 in the league.

I'd argue all 3 new additions make us harder to shutdown, and there is more room with goaltending, luck and internal growth to improve than decline. I'd like to know what you'd do differently

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>newballcoach</b></div><div>I made a similar ACGM yesterday, but I added Matt Roy from LA as well. <a href="https://www.capfriendly.com/armchair-gm/team/1962509">https://www.capfriendly.com/armchair-gm/team/1962509</a>
I think another d-man helps with the depth. If not Roy, I'd look at a Justin Braun who should be cheap as UFA depth. Create competiton and depth on defence. I also like this type of bottom-6 because it's really 3 lines.

3offensive- Robertson, Kerfoot, Spezza/Fast
3defensive-Engvall, Larsson, Fast
4th- Whoever's not on the 3rd obviously.

It lets Keefe use the lineup blender like he enjoys. I'd also love to look at adding somebody like Jordan Greenway (maybe even instead of Fast) because he could play higher up in the lineup but also does a good job of suppressing shots and playing physical should the need arise. I think he's a more athletic and defensive-minded JVR.

It's a lot of improvement by bringing up the floor rather than raising the ceiling. The only other move I might make is to try and add a veteran with some playoff experience (if they could be had for cheap) who could help take some leadership burden off of Tavares.</div></div>

I like Roy but i'd rather keep the 1st tbh. I'm also still pretty high on Holl as a decent 2nd pairing guy.

I wonder how much Greenway would cost, he would be such a great fit and is not only is he big but he's actually good.

I agree, with the high floor thing, Stars are important but not to the extent of a sport like basketball, so I'm willing to hear out that more undervalued depth contracts could benefit the team more than swinging on a guy like Petro. Also in a hard cap providing more value than your contract is needed to be a good team. Defense is not what gets you paid and can be undervalued. Hence cheaper guys like Larson, Fast and Demelo can replace Mango, Kappy and Barrie at a cheaper price without losing any overall value.
