LeBrun: Rielly will probably either be extended or traded


Seth Jones, Dougie Hamilton, Morgan Rielly, OEL, Mattias Ekholm, Tyson Barrie, the list goes on. It’s the off- season of the D. Some will stay, some will go, either way it will headline the summer. In my latest, a look at where things stand with these D:— Pierre LeBrun (@PierreVLeBrun) June 23, 2021

LeBrun says that the Leafs will look to extend Rielly's contract in August after the expansion draft/entry draft/free agency but if they can't come to an agreement he thinks Rielly will probably get traded.

I was about to say, well, Pierre, what other options are available?
Ah yes, letting him walk in free agency.

Off-season of the D sounds ominously dirty

Sign one of the free agents and trade Rielly. We can't keep walking assets to free agency.

Always liked Morgan but has some brain farts at times and personally don't think I would pay him much more than he's making now but our boy Kyle will probably overpay. Leafs need someone with a shot who can quarterback the PP. Trade him, recoup some picks or prospects which Kyle keeps sending off and sign a FA of course dependant on the price.
