Here's Gino Reda with some good insight. This is not about this year. This is about contending for the next decade.

And if things do not work out, Lebrun, over at The Athletic opines:

"Would Carolina be willing to move 23-year-old Brett Pesce, for example? He’s in the first season of a six-year, $24.15-million deal, a cap-friendly contract charging $4.025 million a year for a good, young defenceman who would automatically step into Toronto’s top four. That would surely appeal to the Leafs. Mind you, it’s also the same reason budget-conscious Carolina loves the player. But for a talent like Nylander, would Carolina bite?"

My preference would still be to keep Nylander (and I really believe they will), but this is one of the few (maybe only) suggestions that I think makes sense for both sides. Pesce is a very underrated defenceman, especially for the analytically-inclined. He also appears to have been bumped down the line-up a bit with the Hamilton trade.

I think Nylander's the more valuable player, so I'd be pushing hard to get something else included in the deal as well, but it's a good starting point if a trade was the only option.

Agreed. Willy is "more" than just a pure sniper. He's in that special class of being able to make something out of nothing 5-on-5. He's a dynamic winger.

I know! That helli-celly was awesome. And he ended sheathing it ;D

Indeed. But the thing about getting the max the cap allows (around $16.5-mill) means the less cheese to go around and fill out a roster you actually enjoy playing with/for. All the superstars know this. It's why Sid is at $8.7 x forever and Connor kept his number where he did. I'd be very surprised if Auston and Mitch maxed out for this simple reason.

I can tell you one dude who doesn't mind if old Willy takes his time amongst the fam-jam in Stockholm. Kasperi Kapanen. Every game he plays on Auston's right keeps adding those hundreds of thousands to that second deal ;)

It looks like Andersen is hurt.  Knee injury.  I hope it's not serious.  They say knee injuries are the worst possible scenario for a butterfly style goalie.  Hopefully Sparks can fill in nicely for a bit.

Go out there and make a career Sparky.

Just listening to PTS right now with Bobcat and Shannon and it's like offer sheet, Matthews, Arizona, offer-sheet, offer-sheet, why don't they, offer-sheet...

So you offer-sheet the max $16.25 (20 percent of cap) and all you do is piss off another team, they match and prices across the league go up further. Neither them nor their guests have said this yet. I guess it makes for good radio. There's no way a team doesn't match with a superstar they drafted.
