So Leafs basically stood pat, while the team with a stack of defensemen (despite the injuries) added more.
Also, this is the same Carolina team that embarrassed us just the other night with solid defensive play and desire. And they're only getting stronger on D...
Their D core is ridiculous: Slavin, Pesce, Edmundson, van Riemsdyk, Gardiner, Skjei, Hamilton, Vatanen, Fleury.
On further thought about the Leafs, I'm kind of glad they didn't make big moves. These players shouldn't be let off the hook that easy.
I didn't mind the Coleman deal, he is a better player, but this is a bit much considering what they already have done.
I know this is also about replacing whoever it is they need to trade in the offseason, but chucking away two firsts in this draft is a lot for 3rd line players.
Also, Tampa is currently has just over $76M spent for next season, with Cirelli and Cernak as well as some depth pieces to sign. Obviously they plan to move out some salary, but who?
Palat should get a decent return except he is the guy they would most like to keep out of their seconadary players, and has a full NTC which will hurt his value. Johnson, Gourde and Kilorn wouldn't necessarily be easy to move if you could negotiate with all 31 teams, but with full NTCs I can't see how they move them without adding sweetners. I am not saying they have negative value per se, but when you can only deal with a few teams they are willing to accept a trade to, I can't see that GM knowing Tampa is in a tough spot just doign them a favour.
