Teams really seem to like doing favours for Tampa

I mean having the Yzerman connection doesn't hurt. I'm sure he'll gladly take a 4th round pick to see the team he mostly built win another Cup while he's still rebuilding Detroit.

And Columbus getting a 1st and a 3rd is pretty good for Savard. I really like him but that's only a little bit off what the Leafs paid to get Muzzin and he had another year left on his deal and I think Muzzin is better. Much like the Coleman and Goodrow trades last year I'd say Tampa might have paid a bit much for my liking but they obviously didn't mind after how last year finished and that might end up being the case again here.

Sergachev-Ruuta/Foote

Compared to last years Cup winning team Tampa has upgraded their defence with Savard replacing Shattenkirk and didn't lose a single forward from that group but will now add a healthy Stamkos (and a rusty Kucherov though). Also Vasilevskiy looks like he has the Vezina locked up at this point so he's playing better than he was last year.

I still see the Leafs as contenders and all, but man Tampa's roster just dwarfs every other team.
Columbus will take them down from the inside this time.
