Thank god...by a hair.

Yeah, we don't buy anything these guys say at any point of the season...especially right now with the deadline right around the corner.

"We're looking at any deal that will improve our club...we're happy and confident with our group, so we'd have to be blown away by any offer...we're happy to pick in the first round, but we have to assess every opportunity on its merits...we're very fortunate to have 3 excellent NHL goaltenders, and that's a testament to our quality depth...smoke smoke smoke.

The wheels falling off for the Canucks right now just brings a tear to my eye.

Quote from: cabber24 on March 01, 2024, 09:12:48 AMThe salary retention part throws me off. What does Trev think he can get in this market?

I thought the retention originally meant that Treliving had another move planned, but it could also just have been done to prevent having to risk anyone on waivers soon. As things stand once the trade deadline passes and roster limts go away the Leafs could eventually get up to a 25-man roster that still has all of Jones, Gregor, Lagesson, and Timmins on it with about $150k in cap space to spare.

Interesting...so you pay the 6th to make the max retention move to give yourself flexibility moving forward.

Quote from: Deebo on February 29, 2024, 07:49:44 PMI wonder if that might be the season over for Gio, or the rest of regular season at least, didn't look good.

Heck, might not just be season ending. Really hope it's not though of course. 

Of course, but I just lost my father and I'm 40 playing for peanuts, and I just got a head injury?  I'm tempted to call it a career.

Grushnikov doesn't seem to be a top prospect.

A 2nd and maybe a third plus a prayer, so this seems to be affordable currency for a good UFA RHD?

Quote from: Frank E on February 28, 2024, 03:55:37 PMInteresting that the Leafs have only 2 defensemen signed into next season...Rielly and McCabe @ $2m for the last year of his deal.

Benoit and Liljegren are RFA...arb rights, but still RFA.  Lagesson, Gio, and Brodie are UFA.

McMann is a UFA at the end of this season!
Timmins is signed for next year. They also have some Marlies D signed too.

Fair enough on Timmins...I was just looking at current roster guys.

I don't know about y'all, but he doesn't figure into anything meaningful moving forward unless he takes a leap forward.

Detroit is only a couple of points back of the Leafs with the Leafs with one game in hand...but DET has ROW of 31 vs. TOR 29.  DET moving ahead of TOR pushes the Leafs into a wilcard spot.

Even after a 7 game winning streak.

Parity.

He's got one more season after this one at his $5m AAV...and he's owed $6m real money next season.

Phew.
