I saw Campbell's presser with the media.  He's going to go for top dollar and I don't blame him. Considering his age and earnings so far. But might mean the Leafs can't afford him.

And good for him if he does, but I hope it's somewhere else. Noodles mentioned 5x5 which O'Neill said no one is giving him 5x5. It won't be the Leafs. I think they should go after Husso if he's available.
One thing for certain, both Jack and Mrazek together won't be on the team next season. One or both are gone.

They're finally going to do the thing

--- Quote ---With the salary-cap crunch, do you need more from your Marlies and guys coming up on ELCs next year?

Dubas: Yes, I do, and I expect that we will. It is not only the players that are the obvious ones that are higher picks, but if you look at the bottom of our forward lineup in particular… There are guys who may not have as high a profile but can play specific roles and provide specific elements, whether it is speed, physicality, power, or presence. A Bobby McMann, Curtis Douglas, Joey Anderson — players in that mold — in addition to the Robertsons and the like. That is where the focus will be for sure.

I met with those players yesterday. What their opportunity is going to be in training camp was made abundantly clear in terms of what they are competing for. We do need those players to begin converting from being good prospects and Marlies to being good players for the Leafs, yes.

[...]

At the end of the year with the Marlies, Pontus Holmberg came over. He was a sixth-round pick in 2018. He played exceptionally well for them. We feel he will challenge for the roster next year. He has played on the Olympic team and won a championship in Sweden.

Look who got name dropped super specifically amidst a listing of recent picks and Marlies role players.
