<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Sign_em_up000000</b></div><div>My wishlist for a partner for Rielly is Seth Jones, but that ain't happening. I've been on record since he was drafted and since I've been on here stating that would be the best pairing in the league. Parayko and Pesce would be great adds too, but Parayko will need a new contract when Rielly does and I don't think we'll be able to afford to keep both. Pesce will cost us Nylander but I can't see Carolina moving him while Hamilton only has one year left but if they extend him I could see them and that offer was on the table I think they'd have a hard time turning it down.

I'm in the same boat as you when it comes to Dumba. Most only see him as an OFD but I think he's a two-way D who has mastered the offensive side of the game more than the defensive side. That being said, I don't think Keefe is the coach to get the most out of him in terms of defence. I wouldn't pair him with Mo because I don't think they would work well together but him n Muzz would be great. The problem is his cap hit and the fact that Muzzin can make alot of players look better than they are.

I wouldn't offer Goat for Risto or Miller because I don't want them any closer to the team than they already are. But that's just personal preference. I would trade for Montour tho if the price was right.

100% agreed about Pietrangelo but my main concern is that we need to sign Rielly in 2 years who's younger and if we're bringing in Pietrangelo to be Rielly's d partner then whats the point if he's gone in 2 years?

I don't think Shatty is what we need and will cost too much but Bogo could be good in a sheltered role.

DeMelo is a solid defensive defenceman and would be a great fit beside Rielly but if we could get someone else to play with Mo and put DeMelo with Muzzin I think it would be one of the best shut down d pairings in the league.

You're right the best fit is anyone's guess (except for Rielly and Jones lol) but I think DeMelo should be Dubas's top priority this offseason.</div></div>

Okay so some people think DeMelo is a 3rd pair guy and alot of people think Gudas as high as a 2nd pair D. That leaves Harmonic as the other affordable D and I definitely think he's 2nd pair at best.

So the takeaway from this ACGM and the other one is, you definitely add a 1st pair D in Pietrangelo, no questions there.

My tough question to you and anyone else is, are you trying to win playoff rounds now? Or are you worried about future pending UFAs?

Maybe the choice is better to let Rielly walk to UFA status and possibly have had some playoff success by then? Hopefully the players have grown and matured as well.

100% we need to add grit but we also need it to come from within and I don't see that happening anytime soon.

I also agree on your goaltending take. It doesn't make sense to extend a goalie on the wrong side of 30 who has had back and groin injuries in the past plus such a heavy workload. To me it's a recipe for disaster. That being said, I would look to trade Andersen this offseason and sign a FA. Not sure if it's true but I heard a rumour I believe it was Lebrun but don't quote me who said CGY offered Dubas their 1st+Bennett+ Ritich and Dubas said no because he wasn't sold on a Ritich/Campbell tandem?!?... I would have taken that deal all day long.

I know trading Rielly won't make us better but he has 2 yearz left at a very affordable contract making him extremely valuable to other teams and we likely can't afford his next contract so I would rather be proactive and at least explore what we could get for him rather than letting him walk for nothing as we've already done that too many times. I know Sandin needs to take another step forward but maybe we get a cheaper LHD come back as part of the package or sign someone through FA on the short term or just let Muzzin/Dermott/Sandin take the reigns and see how they do seems how we won't be competing for a cup anytime soon anyways.

Rittich: I think he has mostly proven that he's a decent NHL backup but not a great starting goalie in this league. He was NOT able roll off 7-8 wins during the season behind what I would consider is a better defense core than Toronto's. He would be horrendous IMO behind the Leafs D core.
So really... not a good option IMO.

As far as trading Rielly goes, look I'm not against trading him but the Leafs window to win is between now and the end of Matthews' contract. I just don't see how this team and organization moves forward having success by trading Rielly. Dermott and Sandin are not at the level where the Leafs need them to be. Not saying they won't get there but it's not happening overnight.

There's just no sexy move to be made that's instantly going to make this D core improved big time (unless Dubas changes his mind on Marner/Nylander and signs Pietrangelo). The simple move is to sign a combination of DeMelo, Gudas, Braun, or other under-the-radar D man to upgrade the right side.

As soon as you trade Rielly, you will be looking for a D who can eat up ice time like he does.

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Sign_em_up000000</b></div><div>First off what up?! Haven't talked to you n <a href="/users/Trickster" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">@Trickster</a> in a while how ya guys been?

Second off I'm glade you didn't go for Pietrangelo as he would just screw up our cap even more going forward. That being said, with no cap space how do we sign Hyman and if they pan out Barabonov and Lehtonen in a year? I'm fine with letting Hyman walk but it seems our FO isn't, and furthermore we have Rielly, Campbell, Sandin and Lilly the year after. If we don't move Engvall out this offseason his money and in this ACGM Blais', Mikheyev and Shenan's money coming off the books to help bridge Sandin n Liljegren plus Campbell or maybe one of Scott or Woll will be ready but Rielly is the big signing we'll need to take care of or he walks for nothing unless we move Nylander to keep him. What do you guys think? I'm ok with trading Reilly this offseason instead of looking for a partner for him and letting Muzin, Sandin and Dermott take the left side. I realize it's not a popular opinion but we could get a king's ransom for him now but his value will only go down with less control and being a year older and closer to FA. What say you?</div></div>

Yo! Good to hear from you. Hope things are okay with you.

I think Pietrangelo on the Leafs is unrealistic unless Dubas is willing to move Marner or Nylander and it seems apparent that he's not interested in that. That's why I'm kind of not going there.

The thing I have noticed in these playoffs is the gritty, tough plays by Tampa forwards from every line. That's the thing Leafs front office should be looking at very closely this off-season.

I'm lost for words on what to do with goaltending because I feel keeping Andersen past this current deal would be a mistake but I also don't see any obvious solutions either.


Not sure Leafs get better by trading Rielly and I also feel Sandin needs upper body strength before the Leafs can count on him as an NHL regular.
