I'll say!  That's a blockbuster!  Barrie is a top-4 RHD though, so that helps that.

I love Kadri, but Tyson Barrie is very, very good. He's perfect for this team. Only concern is that he's an UFA after this season and would need a big extension. Initial reaction is that this is a good trade for the Leafs.

Jesus, Dreger.... wow.

Very sad to see Kadri go. My favourite player on the Leafs. Pretty nice that the Avs are retaining 50% of Barrie's cap hit. Despite Kadri being on a sweetheart of a deal, I think the Leafs come out on top here. We've got our top line RHD now.

Can't say I'm impressed with that.

Wow. This a big one. Kerfoot basically replaces what Kadri provided last season, and the Leafs get Barrie at $2.75M for the season! Great move Dubas!

I had a feeling for the last few days that Kadri was going to be traded. He's really the only valuable asset the Leafs had that would realistically bring back a defenseman of Barrie's calibre.

Rielly, Barrie, and Muzzin is a hell of a top 3.

I didn't realize Kerfoot was a centre, that's a huge bonus. He's a RFA, Evolving-Wild pegs him at about $3mil.

Once he took that suspension against Boston his days were numbered.

Sort of mixed feelings here. I like Kadri, brain lapses aside, and am a little worried about this team's depth down the middle. I also don't love having to extend both Muzzin and potentially Barrie next year.

But...you've got to crack eggs to make omelettes I guess. Rielly-Barrie-Muzzin is a solid top three and once Dermott is back I think the team will be pretty well set.

Kerfoot was 56% on face-offs last season. Back to back 40-point seasons. Was just over 50% in possession last season. The drop from Kadri to him probably isn't that massive.
