I think the way out of Zaitsev, if the Leaf's want it, is to pair him with one of our decent wingers that we might not be able to afford Cap wise. Trade both hopefully for a D that we can use. To follow the media, something like Zaitsev and Kapanen for Pesce. No idea if either team would do this deal??

Yea that might be the way they end up going. I think Carolina was asking for Kapanen + for Pesce alone though so I'm not sure what it would take.

The plus is Zaitsev!!! Wait that might be a minus?? I woukd be talking to Kapanen's agent right now and if he wants bigger money selling high might be my move.

Well Zaitsev is a minus and his contract is a minus. Don't two minuses make a plus? I think we just cracked this thing!

I think we'll see a cheaper lower $ bridge for Kapanen with the hope for something more lucrative once we have more Cap versatility in a few years.

If you trade for Pesce you will sleep with the fishes. 8)

If Freddie goes down for an extended period, the team is screwed so it won't matter who you bring in as a backup.

This is true for a good number of teams in the league. Perhaps not to the extent of Toronto but there's not too many Richter/Vanbiesbrouck combos out there.

I personally like Sparks better than Hutchinson.

Highlander

Sparks is better than Hutch. Hutch is not so much.  Hopefully Woll or Scott pan out in a year or two.

Gardiner not on the ice at practice... obviously gonezo! I don't actually believe that but why isn't he at practice? Is he hurt?

I mean he had back spasms just what 10 days ago or so?  Those can act up at any time.

Is the trade deadline over??

Tampa G prospect Connor Ingram is on the outs with the Front Office. We should definitely try to buy low here.

Knowing Tampa, it's probably his weight.
