Doesn't mean they aren't trading anybody else in the bottom 6  ;)

I don't really follow cap stuff. If the leafs moved johnsson, could they conceivably keep shopping? Or does this need to happen andyway to afford brodie and simmons and the rfa's?

Key word significant piece. Meaning the big 4.

I honestly think he's talking about Marner/Nylander. I think there's a quote out there by Keefe saying the team wanted to rejig its bottom 6. Let's see!

In typical Dubas fashion, we overpay on another contract to put further strain on cap.  Don't get me wrong, Brodie is a good defencemen, but not a 5 million guy in todays current cap crunch market.  Shattenkirk, who possesses what I perceive to be a more sought after skillset by most teams, signed for 3.9 x 3 to go to a crap team.

Can you describe that skill set and what makes it more sought after than what Brodie's?

I'm not sure there's a team in the league that would take Shattenkirk over Brodie right now.

Shattenkirk is basically Barrie. Why would we do that again?

A little more dangerous offensively, can QB a powerplay.
