Leafs looking to add a C
« on: January 24, 2017, 06:06:31 PM »
"3. Sounds like Toronto is looking for a depth centre. With Ben Smith still out, they could use some extra insurance beyond Frederik Gauthier."

Kind of surprised - didn't figure more C was anything approaching a priority.. unless of course Bozak is generating a lot of interest on the trade front.

IF that's true, my guess would be a move similar to the one we saw the Sens make today. AHL flotsam for a 4th liner.

If this team does make it to the playoffs they'll need a 4C better than either Smith or Gauthier. And acquiring one almost certainly won't cost them anything of significance that would hurt the future. So it makes sense. It wouldn't have anything to do with Bozak or the top-9.

Depth centre is a pretty typical add for a team that's in the playoff hunt. No real surprise.

If we trade for Peter Holland, that triggers the conditional sixth round pick for 2018.  8)

And if get him for the 6th round pick I'm pretty sure the Universe collapses in on itself.

McGuire is hearing "Duchene."

Also, he seems to be living in his car.

He's hearing Duchene because he's saying Duchene. Avs are known to be looking for D, and the Leafs don't have D to spare.

I know. So did the show's hosts, Sounded like Pierre forgot he had a radio spot to do and just made something wacky up. He was hearing Duchene, I was seeing Gil from the Simpsons.
