Is the underrating of two-way play more like most people not knowing how to rate defensive play? i.e. it doesn't show up on the box stats, therefore, \_(ツ)_/.

Maybe, but at least when it comes to award voters it seems like there's some overlap between people who don't factor defense into the Hart and people who think the Norris shouldn't just reward talented offensive defensemen.

This will help him get a full summer of off-season training in.

In Ward's skate, apparently.

Our buddy Burkie out of the playoffs with no 1st or 2nd round pick... again. At least they didn't finish 2nd last and they do have next year's first.

We'll take a D-man for a combination of pick/negotiating rights to JVR/prospect.

Even then...outside of Dougie Hamilton I'm not sure there's much on their blue line I'd want. Giordano is good but turns 35 this year and signed for four more years at almost 7 million per, Hamonic is ok but super limited, Mark Stone made roughly 600,000 dollars per point this year. Brodie?

If Hamilton's name pops up in trade rumours again the Leafs should be all over that.

Fun question/sad rumination time: If you were given the choice of adding Hamilton or Seguin this off-season who would you choose?

Mostly because if I were to pick up a centre for the Leafs, it'd be one that can defend as well (i.e. Johnny).

Sure. I wouldn't say no to Seguin exactly but...yeah.

Seguin has just 1 year left on his contract before he'll need a new cap hit of probably around $10mil while Hamilton has 3 years left at his current affordable rate. That'd be the big deciding factor for me.

And on that note, Karlsson and Doughty dominate the 2019 free agency talks right now but Seguin's contract expires at that same time and his next one could be a monster.

True and that thought was what prompted the question in the first place. That said, there are a lot of people who are pro-Tavares coming here and that contract is likely to be similar.

And you're right re: Seguin and free agency but that's a situation where I'd be gobsmacked if Dallas let it get remotely that far.
