Dubas definitely going to come out to say Anderson was on their draft watch list and just unfortunately didn?t get picked up at their slot (Leafs picked JD Greenway just the pick before).

So for future reference, when Dubas says that Pridham has multiple ways to dance, that means that they are dumping salary anyway they can.

I guess the NHL wouldn't allow an Johnsson for nothing trade?

I hope Johnsson finds a good fit on Hischier?s wing and pots 30.

Wouldn't that make this a really bad trade then?

I would say this trade is what it is regardless of how Johnsson does. It wasn't a value for value trade. It was a cap space dump.

Rachel was an analyst in New Jersey's R&D department for a couple years so she's someone with some inside knowledge on Anderson.

I don't think we'll ever really look back on this trade and think the Leafs won it, but it's starting to look like Anderson definitely wasn't just some random throw-in to balance out the contracts. He could be a useful bottom-6 option as soon as this season.

Another note, he's younger than Johnsson was before he made the Leafs full time.

I think he?s a spare for now, like Boyd. Might be one of those AHL get?em before they break out checking forwards (Coleman - scoring)

Definitely going to be groomed for the role Kapanen vacated, but with more brains.

I had a feeling Dubas was hunting for these types of pieces before they ripen (and get free agent expensive).

If your teams gets what it needs, does it really matter how much better they perform when given more opportunity they could not receive here?

Similar to Leivo and Brown, Johnsson?s got a really good shot at carving out a top line spot with a team that plays a stylistic fit for him (at least offensively).

He's probably trying to sign him to a 8-year, $1mil AAV contract as we speak.

Johnsson had to go for either a pick prospect.
We dumped needed cap space and found a player who may have some decent potential.
Necessary but let?s face it even if it?s wash its good, better than a 2nd or third

Too bad johnsson was hurt this year, I guess they should be happy with a cap dump on it's own.
