Fenton has made assurances to Spurgeon, but I'm looking at their roster and I don't know what he thinks he can do to climb out of the mushy middle.

Spurgeon at 30 in 2019 for Kapanen at 23? I don't really like the sound of that....

Yea, Spurgeon will be 30 and is a UFA after this season. That's a pretty big overpayment, imo. Is Larsson a better target? He has an extra year left and Edmonton already (for some reason) covets Brown. Maybe a Kapanen, Brown, + swap for Larsson and Paajarvi?

I'm sure this is just Avery being Avery (a previous instagram post yesterday showed him forcing someone to apologize to a wall that they just peed on) but how amazing would it be if the Leafs started giving all these leaks to just completely random people to drop for the next year instead of schmoes like Dreger.

Lol. Like maybe me. 

I'm sure it was a joke, commenting on the fact that Canadian fans are talking about off-season moves while the playoffs continue.

Use cap space + assets from Marleau/Zaitsev/Kapanen/Brown to bring in a legitimate top-3 RHD and slide Puli in as 3RW.

Yeah, 2016 was a pretty good year to have won the lottery.  Pretty swift drop off in talent.  Very few winners beyond Matthews, Sergachev, McAvoy for their draft ranking it seems.  Even Laine's future looks a little suspect for a #2 overall pick (relative to some #2 overall picks).

edit:  I guess there is Tkachuk and Clayton Keller too.  Though Keller had just 47 points in 82 games last year ...  Nylander, Marner, Matthews was a pretty great run.

That's probably a little quick on the draw. We're talking about 20-21 year olds. Leaving aside guys you're forgetting like Tkachuk and Dubois looking pretty good right now it's way too early to judge a pretty defense heavy firstround.
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.

Fair enough... (I just edited as you were posting ...)

Yup, especially when it looks like a lot of teams are taking a patient approach with guys they drafted. Juolevi, for instance, was only brought over to play in the AHL last season. More and more teams are buying into a patient approach with their better prospects.

Been seeing rumours of Kovalchuk coming to Toronto for Marleau. On the surface it makes little sense since they're both paid 6.25 a year, but what if the Kings retain 3 million. With the Leafs paying a chunk of Marleau's salary on July 1st, the money would even out, not totally, and the cap hit would be 9 next year 3 the year after for the Kings and 3 for the Leafs in both years. Kovalchuk could be decent playing with a guy like Marner.
