Ok Unless Seattle said they want Dermott or Kerfoot and plan to take them already. Why trade for McCann and potentially lose assets

Certainly points to there being a deal of some kind with Seattle.

Could be McCann or Kerfoot.

It certainly better be.  Hallander isn’t anything amazing but our prospect depth sucks and giving up assets while also losing things seems kind of counter productive to the lack of depth in the organization

If Seattle takes McCann, it's like the Leafs lost Hallander and a 7th in the draft. Better and losing Kerfoot for nothing I suppose.

Because you get a replacement for Kerfoot if they go that way. If Seattle takes McCann the Leafs essentially get to keep their roster and only lose Hallander and a 7th. It's a pretty smart move by Dubas.

If Seattle takes McCann, then the leafs lost Hallander and 7th to expansion rather than Kerfoot, Holl or Dermott.

Whoever they keep in the expansion draft if Seattle take McCann is effectively part of the return for the assets.

Decent roster there.

Not listed here - Alex Ovechkin. There’s no way he signs with Seattle, but it would be hilarious if they took him.

My money says they take McCann...the Leafs priced Dermott out with his new too much money contract.

Maybe the money doesn’t play out I think I had just been interested in keeping both Kerfoot and McCann.  I’m nonplussed about losing Holl/Dermott at this point.

Although I guess it is better to look at it as Seattle picking Hallander and a 7th if they take McCann and that would be a good loss from the Leafs perspective

I think I'd rather the Leafs had kept Hallander and the pick and lost Kerfoot or Dermott.

But my hunch is this means they know Seattle wanted Kerfoot and will take him.

Exactly...That would be a good loss being able to keep Dermott, Kerfoot. I kind of think they want Kerfoot though but we'll see.

They had to have known Seattle wouldn't take McCann. Couldn't they have worried about this deal afterward? What are the chances Seattle takes McCann from Pitt and Kerfoot? I dunno... Let's see how it shakes out.
