But really - "here, play top minutes with a revolving door of barely NHL calibre D" then "why don't you excel!?"  Gunnarsson goes to STL, he's getting 2nd pairing minutes.  Franson goes to Nashville, he's getting 3rd pairing minutes.

Once again, as has been an issue with the top line, really good players are being put into situations with other players who aren't at that level and criticized when the results aren't great.

Since you won't drop it I'll just point out that Steve Dangle is doing a better job at this than you:

That's making a completely different point, but I saw that bro's tweet anyway.

Wow, a 5th for Holzer and to the next 2 months of Brewer's contract? That's actually fantastic.

Yep, they kind of bought themselves going up from a 7th to a 5th by eating Brewer's remaining salary

EDIT: with all the D Anaheim added today, Holzer may have just been a throw in and the money bought the pick.

Nonis wins the trade deadline.

Who's keeping track, the Leafs have seemed to pick up quite a few draft picks the last little while.

They've added 5 draft picks since the Franson trade. NAS 1st, PIT 4th, ANA 5th, STL 6th in 2015 and PIT 2nd in 2016.

It's a start, but we're going to need to add a lot more in the next couple of years (hopefully starting at 5 he draft).

Still only two picks in the top 60, which is disappointing.

Maybe a couple more can be acquired before draft day after the playoffs are over.

Gotta think we get at least one more pick in that territory during the offseason from the other guys.
