Don't you find it weird that Kadri ends up in Calgary after refusing a trade their for Brodie?  Could have saved us a season of hell with Barrie.


Honestly I don't care. It's absolutely his right to exercise a clause that was negotiated in his contract.
No one's saying it isn't his right, it's just a bit odd. I wonder if it was more just not wanting to leave rather than not wanting to go specifically to Calgary.

Wonder where Colorado goes from here. J.T. Compher isn't a very inspiring 2C for a Cup contender.

Kadri's openly talked about that decision and said it was just that: he thought nixing that trade would keep him in Toronto and that's all that it was about.

T.J. Brodie also apparently put the Leafs on his no-trade list in his last season with the Flames and then signed with Toronto in the offseason.

Kadri said he refused the trade not because he didn't want to go to Calgary but because he wanted to remain a Leaf.

Would it really be weird either way assuming Calgary offered him a better contract/situation now? Like, if you asked me "would you like to move to Calgary and earn what you're currently earning" right now I'd probably say no and stay in Toronto but if you offered me significantly more money to move there's at least a chance it would change my mind.
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.

Not sure if it's another thread but I saw that monohan and a 1st round pick are going to Montreal.

He wanted to stay in Toronto.  Him declining to waive was a move to try and convince Dubas that he wanted to stay.  Kyle probably could have pressed harder and forced the issue on a trade to Calgary if he really wanted that deal.

Details are still to be confirmed on that. Habs might be working on a cap clearing move of their own, the Monahan deal is more complex, or both. I suspect both.

Am I seeing Cap Friendly right? Montreal has 250k in space and just added 6.3 million? So they would be 6 million over the cap?

Suzuki to Arizona?

Monahan will start the season on LTIR. More likely Hoffman or Anderson on their way out.

I love that the narrative when a team signs a long term deal with someone 30+ is 'who cares, you're not playing for 4 years from now, it's win now'.

But signing tavares at 27 is stupid and the leafs are stuck with a boat anchor apparently.

Just glomming this here because it's part of the impetus for the transaction (Kadri)

Translation: Calgary will be ceding only the worst 1st rd pick it can muster.

I'll admit I know nothing about Monahan. What's his deal? I see he's only 27, his numbers have steadily dropped. Is this an injury thing? Is he just not that good anymore? What's the story?
