Burns a year of his ELC. Already played in 6.
It's funny, I know conventional wisdom says you should avoid burning off a year of an ELC in these situations. But imagine if the Leafs gave Nylander and Marner 10 games in the first year of their ELCs before sending them back to the OHL/AHL instead of having both of them see their first year slide. Imagine they both negotiated their 2nd contracts a year earlier in their careers. Hindsight is 20/20 and I don't recall anybody suggesting the Leafs do this, but there's a pretty darn good chance our cap situation would look a heck of a lot different than it does today if that happened.

I know you all really like the guy but man, I am really not excited about reshuffling a lineup that really seems to be clicking for Johnsson.

Fun stat posted by HNIC on their social media channels today:
Phil Kessel played in the most games in the 2010s decade; 787. He didn't miss a single game.
(He also had the second most shots in the decade quite a long way behind Ovechkin)

If Dermott's deal is 3 yrs or less (ie Bridge deal) he likely won't get much more than Holl. The question is, do you dangle a 5/6 yr deal in front of him at 2.75-3 M per?
I don't think there'd be any harm in making that offer but man, you'd really have to wonder about Dermott's confidence if he accepted something like that.

Still half a year to go though so we'll see.Quote from: Guilt Trip on January 02, 2020, 11:09:31 PMQuote from: Nik Bethune on January 02, 2020, 11:02:18 PMThat bodes well for the Leafs.
Dermott's going to effectively have no leverage and will almost certainly be looking for a bridge deal. I don't know about less than Holl but he's definitely not going to be getting a lot more.
He'll be going into negotiations without a 70 game or 20 point season(probably). Could he get 2.5 or something? I suppose. But what's the possible justification for anything higher?

I'm still trading Johnsson before Kappy. Kappy is 1 1/2+ years younger, is a cheaper hit and I think a better overall player.
Johnsson can play in the top-6, Kappy can't/won't. A minuscule age difference and cap hit don't make up for that to me.
I have never seen such a skilled, physically gifted player nerf the creativity from top lines so quickly and effortlessly as Kapanen with Tavares/Marner and Matthews/Nylander.
Latest 31 ThoughtsQuote13. Not that they want to, but when things were going poorly for the Maple Leafs, another GM said Toronto learned it could trade Kasperi Kapanen very easily. "But they don't want to," he added.
Do it before others catch on.

I appreciate that the issues of racism within the game are going to get a lot of the attention and rightfully so but I think we haven't really come to terms with the fact that with the whole Aliu-Downie thing the whole hockey establishment basically sided with Downie(and that includes the media and fans) and we all sort of went along with that.

LTIR is not retroactive. If they move Moore to LTIR today, he'd still have to miss the entire minimum LTIR period beginning today.

3. Unfortunately LTIR is not retroactive. So if they wait 2 weeks, find out JT needs a bit more time, he's gotta sit 10 games or 24 days from the day they put him on LTIR. Only IR is retroactive.
Believe it is: CBA 50.10.d.vi
A Club may elect to replace a Player who is unfit to play under this Bona-
Fide Long-Term Injury Exception at any point during the period that he is
unfit to play, and any days and games already missed by the Player as a
result of his being unfit to play (i.e., the injury/illness causing him to miss
more than twenty-four (24) calendar days and ten (10) NHL Regular
Season games) prior to the election of the Bona-Fide Long-Term
Injury/Illness Exception shall retroactively count toward the missed
twenty-four (24) calendar days and ten (10) NHL Regular Season games
for the Player.

We'd have Spezza, Engvall, for centre depth if Goat was gone. They could even go to Brooks from the Marlies. I like his game.
If you're looking for one, the one downside to this is it probably means Gauthier won't be seeing waivers this season. I doubt they want to run the risk of losing two depth centres.

So if Marner returns tomorrow Shore, Petan, Engvall, and Marincin would all need to get sent down to the Marlies and the Leafs would have a 20-man roster with Moore on the IR.
If the Leafs wanted to keep an additional player for a little bit they could move Moore to LTIR. He would only need to be expected to miss about another week or so to be eligible for that.

It's sad that you'd have to choose either but I'd take young Luke Schenn over Hainsey.
