We’ve likely seen the last of Rasmus Sandin for the regular season.

Sheldon Keefe confirmed that the 21-year-old defenceman will be replaced by Ben Hutton for Saturday’s game against the Montreal Canadiens, calling it a salary cap-related decision, and it’s believed those same cap maneuvers are expected to keep Sandin sidelined for the games in Ottawa and Winnipeg next week as well.

That would exclude Sandin’s salary from the Leafs daily cap accounting and provide them with enough space to activate Riley Nash off long-term injured reserve. Nash has been recovering a knee sprain since coming over in a trade with Columbus on April 9.

Game Notes

MTL
•Allen (11-11-4, 2.62 GAA, .909 Sv%) will likely start for the Canadiens
•Danault left Thursday's game with an injury in the first period. He was to be evaluated today but so far no update on his status for Saturday's game

TOR
•Campbell (16-2-2, 2.11 GAA, .924 Sv%) will likely start for the Leafs
•Brooks will come back in for Noesen, while Hutton will take Sandin's spot on the blue line. Keefe wanted everyone to know that Sandin coming out was primarily due to cap reasons
•This will be the final regular season game against the Habs. The Leafs have a 6-2-1 record against them so far and while it's a little less certain than it was a week or two ago it's still likely they'll face Montreal in the 1st round of the playoffs

Injuries

•Phillip Danault - Upper Body - Questionable Saturday
•Shea Weber - Upper Body - Day to day
•Paul Byron - Lower Body - Injured Reserve
•Carey Price - Concussion - Injured Reserve
•Brendan Gallagher - Thumb - Injured Reserve
•Jonathan Drouin - Personal - Out indefinitely
      
•Nick Foligno - Upper Body - Day to day
•Zach Bogosian - Upper Body - Injured Reserve
•Zach Hyman - Knee - Injured Reserve
•Frederik Andersen - Lower Body - Injured Reserve   
•Riley Nash - Knee - Injured Reserve
•Scott Sabourin - Hand - Injured Reserve

The Sabres are salivating at the thought of picking him in 2023.

Nearly half of the NHL’s general managers – the gatekeepers of the league who collectively influence the policy that governs Parros’ department – were canvassed for this story and not one expressed concern or doubt about Parros’ competence.

This made me think... isn't it kind of weird that the league has the GMs basically run the league like this? I mean most of them are barely competent at their actual jobs of running NHL teams... what gives them the qualifications to decide how an entire league should be operated?

I don’t know how anyone can think this Habs team can beat this leafs team 4 times in 7 games. I know ‘anything can happen’ but come on.

In their sorta defence, they are missing arguably their 3 most valuable players in Price, Gallagher, and Weber (3 of 4 if you want to put Petry over Weber, which is maybe fair). All of them should be back for playoffs.

2 goals on the first 5 shots against Andersen in his return to game action.

His afternoon ended with 12 saves on 14 shots in 30:52 (it was always the plan to only play him for half the game). I don't think him letting in 10 goals or 2 goals or 0 goals would have mattered much to the Leafs. Hopefully he feels good after the game and maybe he can shine a little brighter in the next one.

This keeps getting funnier.

Ok reading the article and seeing a GM slip in a complaint about the Rangers' statement being cancel culture has officially topped the funny scale.

Is that a confirmed story?

I mean I'm not sure you're ever going to get Bettman or Parros on the record as confirming that but Rick Carpiniello is a pretty trustworthy reporter who wouldn't put that in print unless he was confident in his sources.

It was terribly unfair of Bettman to question George Parros' professionalism and dedication to his role and the Department of Player Safety and therefore has fined himself $250,000.

The NHL needs to figure out what is acceptable or not in their league. As you point out, things don't align.

IMO, the action toward a player that is completely defenseless is more egregious.

This one's interesting because if Buchnevich reacted a split second later it would have been Mantha crosschecking it him pretty hard (more in the chest area though to his credit) completely away from the play and probably him facing the suspension.

Hard to imagine that Rogers and Bell couldn't find a couple $100k or so under their couch cushions to keep this guy in the fold.
