Two stray thoughts re: Karlsson

1. I'm really interested to see what happens with Mark Stone now. He's played his entire career with maybe the single best set-up guy in the world. Now, in his walk year, he's playing in what looks like a much worse situation. If he goes out and has, like, 19 goals and 45 points then it's going to be interesting to see how much the Karlsson trade will cost him as a UFA.

2. The Karlsson trade should probably be exhibit A in a cautionary tale for anyone who thinks the Leafs can trade their way into a much better defense. Karlsson was a superstar that some teams very clearly wanted desperately and yet by most accounts what held up his trade was that teams weren't even willing to throw in their best defensive prospects for him, to say nothing of their best young defensemen.

He probably won't get any regular season games, which is dumb, but on the other hand having to open the season going head-to-head against Matthews/Tavares/Kadri seems like a fair punishment.



Big deal. Costs him nothing. The NHL dropped the ball again. Could have sent a good message but didn't.

Which implies that Matthews, as he mentioned earlier this week, will be on the Marner-Tavares PP unit.

This would work for me.
Tavares
Matthews - Marleau - Marner
Rielly

Kadri
Kapanen - Johnsson - Nylander
Gardiner

Did they definitively figure out who it was, herman?

Someone approached Yost on twitter claiming he was that the person in question and that he was merely an invested fan now confused by the hoopla. He hasn't tweeted under that account since then.

Scotty Bowman on PTS talks Leafs:

Interesting point, Matt Moulson and Kyle Okposo got nice contracts after Tavares setting them up for 30-35 goal seasons. His wingers have gotta be salivating.

Speaking of schadenfreude
https://www.silversevensens.com/2018/9/20/17881396/interview-with-pierre-dorion-ottawa-senators-general-manager-analytics

Really?

No schadenfreude for me (had to google the meaning), it's so awful I can't enjoy it.

Dubas, should get this meatball on the phone asap and pillage him of all assets.

Durzi is back in the main camp with Dermott out dealing with his shoulder.  But... plug Dermott in in Durzi's place... and then plug those two pairings into my veins.  (With Gardiner-Zaitsev the other)

Honestly, I'd be a little apprehensive about throwing Dermott into those tough minutes right now. Not entirely sure he's up for them yet. Assuming Gardiner-Rielly will never happen, I'd actually go back to trying Rielly-Zaitsev again. I think that'd be an improvement over putting Hainsey there (which is saying something, as I might be the president of the Zaitsev anti-fan club).

I'd prefer to see Dermott move up to the 2nd pair at this point as well. My top two choices for top pair, in order, would be

1. Gardiner - Rielly
2. Rielly - Zaitsev

At the end of the day, I want Hainsey on the 3rd pair.  Sure, sub him in in high-leverage moments for one of the other guys, but regular 5v5 shifts he shouldn't be seeing so many minutes.

You mean Dermott-Zaitsev?
