By "shoddy" do you mean "substantially less impressive than wingers on the current Leafs roster who make more than twice as much"? Because that's the thing that stands out to me when I look at the numbers, not that he's the Kasperi Kapanen that got away.

Like I said, they look shoddy in the sense that prior to last night he was scoring at a 29-point pace in Vancouver while playing alongside 2 elite, PPG players. Connor Brown, who I'm not exactly quick to defend, is scoring at a 29-point pace this season and his most frequent linemate has been Par Lindholm.

If last night's performance from Leivo is more of a sign of things to come and he steps up his scoring, then maybe I'll change my tune here.

Exactly. Leivo is playing on a terrible team and is being afforded opportunities he wouldn't get here. Babcock aside, I don't see where Leivo slot into this line up and makes the team better...or even equal.

The easy answer is Marleau, who could be slotted in behind Johnsson, Hyman, and Trevor Moore.

I think the argument would be that his underlying stats show he's a good middle-six talent when it comes to generating scoring chances and keeping the puck in the fun zone. That was the case when he was here and not being "afforded opportunities" to produce that'd come on a terrible team. He wouldn't displace any of the wingers in the top 9 (Johnsson, Hyman, Marleau / Marner, Nylander, Kapanen), but, in the event of an injury, he can be more useful up there than Brown or Lindholm.

Thought Muzzin started great, tailed off but I really like his game now, very steady.  The trade for now makes a lot of sense. I do wish Durzi and Grundstrom all the best.

Remember Soshnikov? Such a great start to his Leafs career, really looked like he was an integral part to our 4th line back then. Too bad he couldn't do moore. A lot of us really expected him to trev his engine up and potentially become a top-6 player.
