Gosh. It's not like those questions were cherry picked. You've convinced me for definite.

It's almost like having your goaltending put up a Sv% of ~.950 reduces goals against significantly, even when the team is giving up 32+ shots on a regular basis.

You guys are funny. You're stubbornness to hold onto a majorly flawed ideal actually makes me smile.  :)

What majorly flawed ideal would that be?

Didn't realize that it was Connor Brown's contract year...

I put him in at 1.2 mil but I don't know how realistic that is. Hyman is coming up too.

If he keeps playing with Matthews and puts up 30-40 points, he may get a bridge around $2m.

Yeah, maybe. I haven't dug into any comparisons.

Here's the discussion on JvR I was hoping Mirtle's article would get into. Kicks in around the middle.

If you're concerned about where our replacement LW might come from if JvR goes, I would offer up the suggestion of Nylander as our sheltered scoring LW until such time that he takes over centering the sheltered scoring line. We've got young RWs in the pipeline (and Hyman is a righty too).

Decent listen, thanks for posting. If they could get Dumba, I'd be pretty happy.

Bibeau looked strong there.

That's the one I like.

FTR I'm dead set against thinking we need another top 5 pick to better the team in any way, shape, or form now through the draft to better the team and make it a Stanley Cup contender.

This team is trending up not down and doing so is better for the team.

Especially with Vegas entering the draft.

We aren't getting Lil'.

Foote perhaps.

You seriously think a top 5 pick wouldn't help the team?

Not given the current development curve, especially when it comes to rounding out our D because they take longer to develop.

We don't need anymore help up front.

Alrighty then, FTR.

I'm not convinced selling JVR now is a slam dunk better choice than waiting til next year, unless the Leafs really are willing to keep bottoming out and maybe retains now to make it a more attractive option.

Considering how team-friendly his contract is and how likely he is to be looking for a raise when it's over, I'm really to struggling to see how trading JVR at any point other than ASAP could possibly be the one where he's at his highest value.

So long as we generally agree that the Leafs have long odds to make the playoffs this year or the next then the term of JVR's deal plus sliding a spot or two in the draft(potentially in both years) seem to be a pretty clear win-win.

Likewise, there's the real possibility that next year's team is closer to the playoffs than this one's probably stands to be and so trading JVR becomes a question of whether the team is "giving up" or not.

So the equation on trading JVR seems pretty straight forward. It's trading him when his remaining term makes him most valuable + his absence could create the greatest draft benefit vs. turning him into a rental and potentially creating a PR problem by dealing him.

I thought I spoke to the 'unless they really maximize the situation' in the second half of that sentence, but, oh well.

Not much by way of trade ideas, but Mirtle lays down the logic behind spinning off JvR at his peak value for assets to ensure cap room for our actual core.

Was working on another Leafs brass 'speed up the process' pov and wondered if some of the beneficial by product might be added value to minus one year ufa contracts at the following deadline, Komarov, JVR, Bozak

FORWARDS

L. Komarov ($ 2,950,000) --- A. Matthews ($ 925,000) --- W. Nylander ($ 894,166)
J. Van Riemsdyk ($ 4,250,000) --- N. Kadri ($ 4,500,000) --- C. Brown ($ 1,200,000)
N. Soshnikov ($ 736,666) --- T. Bozak ($ 4,200,000) --- M. Marner ($ 894,166)
K. Kapanen ($ 863,333) --- F. Gauthier ($ 863,333) --- Z. Hyman ($ 900,000)

DEFENCE

K. Alzner ($ 6,000,000) --- K. Shat ($ 7,000,000)
M. Rielly ($ 5,000,000) --- N. Zaitsev ($ 4,500,000)
J. Gardiner ($ 4,050,000) --- T. Lily ($ 925,000)

GOAL

F. Andersen ($ 5,000,000) --- K. Kaskisuo ($ 925,000)

Extras

M. Martin ($ 2,500,000) --- R. Valiev ($ 778,333) --- T. Dermott ($ 894,166)

That's a LTIR team, but, between Horton and Lupul it could be interesting. I'm not convinced selling JVR now is a slam dunk better choice than waiting til next year, unless the Leafs really are willing to keep bottoming out and maybe retains now to make it a more attractive option.

Oddly, I can remember not standing up for the anthem at movie theatres when I was a kid and getting yelled at.
