So, basically, nothing.

And the message for Arizona that Lou pinned on the back of Hollands sweater reads...

'Someday, and that day may never come, I will call upon you to do a service for me. But until that day, accept this player as a gift on my daughter's wedding day'.

Best of luck in Arizona Peter! It's too bad because he definitely played better with the Leafs than the Ducks. It was more a case of not being one of Babcock's "guys" it seems. Hopefully he gets the playing time to prove himself with the Yotes and the Leafs in turn get the draft pick compensation. That would be a win-win for both sides. Now they just have to free Corrado from the dog house!

Well, in defense of Holland's value, the Leafs are the proud recipients of another contract slot.  :P

Edit: I wonder what's going through Franky Corrado's head right now. Holland asked out, and the Leafs sent him to a team where it sounds like he will get every opportunity to lose a job. I would be losing my mind a little bit.

Opened a little cap space too. I don't think he got much of a shot, but I don't think we'll miss him.

Hard to say how Corrado feels about it without knowing what's been communicated.

That's less a trade than letting him out of the car in the woods and then driving off.

Hey Nik, I would live in AZ 100 times over Ontarrible any day of the year.  300 days of sunshine, virtually no snow. Worst fear are rattelsnakes and Pool dust.   Shane Doan has been saying it for years. Best place on the planet to live.  Heres to the Holland Marsh in AZ.

I am really struggling to figure out why you think I asked about this or why I would possibly care.

If he doesn't catch on in Phoenix, it's probably KHL time.

Because, you let Holland out in the woods, near an Arizonian glade.

Well, yeah, I said the woods. Not a 100 degree concrete slab in the desert populated by heavily armed racists.
