This tweet made me chuckle a little:

The DFO Rundown discussed Evander Kane's chances of winding up on another NHL team:@JasonGregor:  "At $3.5 million, I would think a lot of teams 'might' be interested."@frank_seravalli: "No." pic.twitter.com/cTYetfNnI5— Daily Faceoff (@DailyFaceoff) November 30, 2021

"the Leafs have had interest in both Holl and Travis Dermott, but Holl is older and earns more – in a role that’s not commensurate with his pay."

I feel like this is a weird way to frame the problem with Holl right now. It's definitely fair to say his performance hasn't quite met expectations so far this season but his "role" on the team still right now is that of a top-4, 20 minute defenceman who gets tough usage/deployment and plays on the top PK pairing.

If his "role" isn't commensurate with his pay then what does that mean for Dermott who makes $0.5mil less but plays sheltered bottom pairing minutes and isn't allowed on any specialty teams unless absolutely necessary?

I move Holl before Dermott as well.

Mirtle, in that same Twitter thread, indicated that Holl is the more attractive piece on the market.
