I am not sure why Babcock does not play McBackup more often, he is a capable goalie, who in his 18 starts had a better save percentage then Andersen. Give him another 7 starts then Andersen will not have any issue with been tired in late Mar/Apr.

If we trade Gardiner what would be the Kawhi Leonard equivalent defenseman we could trade him for?

For one thing Gardiner is far from the best player in TO history like Derozan was. So this question doesn't make sense. After games 7 we should get what we can because he is not going to be worth the 6 + mil he is going to ask for at the end of this season.

Which it is -- except in an artificial world where particular one-game samples, in this case elimination games, are the keys to the whole reason you compete in the first place.  In that artificial world, those particular one-games do have an importance that no amount of  statistical counterargument can completely nullify.

Only if there's a reason to think that it's an inherent issue rather than a one-game sample which can swing wildly. But that notion is completely undercut by what we actually saw. Gardiner has played in elimination games before and played well in elimination games before. The idea that he can't, that playing badly in that game is indicative of some sort of deficiency to be concerned with going forward, simply has no legitimate case.

And absent that case to be made, this is "We should be open to trading him because he played badly in that one game" regardless of when that game was.

Has he in fact played well in elimination games before?  Can't recall G6 against Washington.  In any event, since we haven't won the Cup he by definition hasn't played spectacularly well enough in elimination games to offset the recency bias of his spectacularly bad game against Boston.

I'm not defending people who say he should be traded solely because of that one game.  I am defending the idea that people are not being irrational when they use that game as part of a larger argument to trade him, which is what PPP wants to squelch.  Whether such arguments are persuasive overall, or not, is a whole other debate that's separate from the what I'm talking about here.

Game 7 wasn’t the only elimination game in the series.

Good point.  The "last game of series"?

I have never been a big fan of him, anyways. They got rid Cody Fransen after he was found to be the fall guy the last time we lost to BOS. I would not be disappointed either way.

It is so unprofessional for those hired to speak about the team to have not done even the most basic research that fans online have done. 

Although.... if the Nylander negotiation drags out as he wants $7m and the Leafs want less than $6.5m, wouldn't it be smart for a team to try to sign him for, say, $8mx5? Compensation isn't terrible, and, if the Leafs match, you've made it harder for them to re-sign Matthews and Marner without cutting into the depth.

Well if William were worth more then Kadri maybe he should. Unfortunately Will did not prove that he is worth that kind of money. After last season he should not be signed for any more then 5 mil a year IMO

The $5M makes more sense. TSN has it as a 3-year $5M contract ($1.67 AAV)
What? I thought it was $5M per season??

According to Capfriendly it is 5,000,000 per season
