Give Parenteau and Spaling 1st line and 1st PP minutes for the whole season until approximately March 1st  ;)

So, I wonder if Chris Stewart would do one of those 1 yr. deals?

Wow, that's one of the worst teams I've seen in a long time.  Well done!!   :D  Is this an Auston Matthews capable roster?  Perhaps.

I tell you, it's a pretty good sign of how checked out I was at the end of the season that I saw some of these prospective line-ups and thought "Who the hell is Bailey?"

I don't know that much about Harrington, but he's 22 years old with 2 professional seasons under his belt. If the Leafs liked him enough to get him in the Kessel deal I would imagine it's getting pretty close to him playing in the NHL. Not sure how that would work though with Phaneuf, Gardiner, Rielly, Marincin, and Hunwick all being lefties as well. Assuming no one gets traded I would probably move Phaneuf and Rielly over to the right side and do something like this:

Gardiner-Phaneuf
Marincin-Rielly
Harrington-Polak
Hunwick-Robidas

If Phaneuf goes then Polak bumps up to the Gardiner pairing and Robidas plays with Harrington.

Although I haven't seen it mentioned, Polak has got to be near the top of the "those likely to be traded before March 1" list, no?

Oh, absolutely.  He's not a part of the future and he's the right kind of depth defenseman that teams look for heading into the postseason...can play on the PK and while not a dominant defensive player is certainly someone who plays a physical game that can help wear out offensive minded teams.

Definitely, but I'd imagine that he'll be a Leaf until then.
