I like it. It strengthens out top 6 and also our bottom 6. Kampf will be our 4th line centre now. Leafs have depth up the middle for sure.

Holy crap!!!!  75% retained.  It's assets but that's huge.

Acciari helps the scoring depth in the bottom six (Kerfoot moving down also does that).

They also only take on 3.5M in cap hit with this trade so in theory after factoring in LTIR they still have room to add (but also don't really have assets to trade)

ROR is obviously the big one here but Acciari is a pretty interesting piece as well. We've certainly got C depth up the wazoo at this point. Wonder where everyone ends up playing.

You have to go for it. You can't sit back forever. I really like this deal honestly. Wish Abramov well but I didn't see him amounting to much.

Pretty impressive Dubas was able to pull this off without losing anything off the roster.  Keeping Kerfoot and Holmberg - two names who have been involved in rumours - is great.  Bottom six instantly strengthened big time.

But wait!  There's more!

I get that 90's nostalgia is in these days but I was sort of hoping we'd skip the "Draft, Schmaft" part of it.
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.

Isn't O'Reilly hurt right now?

At the same time, if you don't go for it now then when? Hopefully when we rebuild again our picks are like #5 and not #25.

This will make it 4 of the last 5 drafts where they haven't had a 1st round pick. They've been "going for it" every year.

Does anyone think this could mean JT goes to the wing, at least some of the time?

I like it: it's pretty light in terms of asset ceiling, and raises the roster's floor significantly.
