We have no goalies now, cool

But now, they might be able afford an upgrade.
Kuemper, Husso, Gibson?

Zee

In all honesty 13 spots in this part of the draft means very little, all these guys are hit or miss, no salary retained is a huge win

The very likely one is Campbell.

If Lambert is still available at 38th then I am ok with this trade, but lets be real here, its hard to be excited when your 1st round pick is once again sacrificed to cover up another mistake.

They have to. If they dont come out with a legit starter this has to be the end of the Dubas era. 

Ritchie and Mrazek having to be traded away off last season is still an issue for me.  Dubas has mismanaged draft pick assets and it's part of why we have no prospects to fill in gaps in the roster

I basically agree with downtrading to get out from Mrazek but yeah, bottom line is it cost Dubas a 1st to get rid of a bad mistake.  So yeah gunnar36.

If you're familiar with draft pick valuation, 25 to 38 is basically no difference (a little bit more so in this particular draft). If the Leafs get the exact player they wanted to pick anyway, they sacrificed nothing.

Yeah, I'll be a little surprised if they don't circle back on Campbell now that the cap situation is more cleared up.

But, respectfully, that's not really a fair assessment.  This is not like the Marleau deal where the first is out the door.  As others mentioned, a close second is coming back.  It's fair to feel disappointed, but it's not fair to describe this as costing a first.

If they do, yes.  But how will we know?  It's not like they're going to admit that whoever they take at 38 is not who they wanted.

It's not a sacrifice like it was with Marleau. They moved down to 38 from 25. Not a big deal in this draft to lose 3.8M. Unfortunate Mrazek couldn't get it done. Great move.
