I think Leivo, Kapanen, and Moore are all here for when JVR and or Bozak get traded.  They're also good insurance against injuries.  Or they could be used as trade pieces.  Leivo is showing that he's a pretty good player.  Give him and Kapanen some more time and they could do a decent job filling in for JVR and Bozak.

For whatever reason he doesn't get much love around here but JVR's scoring is going to be hard to replace.  What he does well, he's pretty elite at.

I've never really seen a post here, including the one you just quoted, that advocated trading JVR because JVR isn't good.
I wish to hell I'd never said "Winning isn't everything it's the only thing". What I believe is, if you go out on a football field, or any endeavour in life, and you leave every fibre of what you have on the field, then you've won.

Leivo looked great to me in the game last night against Vancouver.

I think the Leafs will end up retaining JVR with a $2m bump in his salary.

Will that fit under the cap with new salaries to the 3 young ones?

Next year, no problem as Matthews/Marner are still on their ELC next year.  Its the year after that it gets dicey:

- Matthews & Marner deals kick in.  If they cap out/LTIR next year, they also carry over Rookie Bonuses into '19-'20.  -
And our only defensemen signed that far out are Rielly and Zaitsev.  (ie Gardiner would need a new deal). 

Luckily, Dermott and Liljegren will probably be in the NHL by then and will still be on their ELC.

Apparently Josh Leivo has asked to be traded if the Leafs aren't going to start playing him in the NHL.
