See, you can tell it's a legit article because they use words like "now" in all caps....

Rats!  I am now distracted at work for the rest of the day.

I would love OEL.  Replace Gardiner and we are good to go.

My guess is replies to this thread are going to focus a lot on how neat it would be to add OEL and not so much at the supposed Mitch Marner price tag.

You're not getting him on the cheap.

Marner for OEL??  I'm not sure I'm liking the sound of this.

I watch the Coyotes a lot live and while I like OEL I wouldn't be willing to pay ransom for him.  He is good offensively, ok at best defensively,  but his give a poop meter runs rather cold IMO.  He hasn't been tgat great for the Coyotes in a couple of seasons.  Could he regain ground?  I think so but there is risk involved if the price is high.

See, if I'm spending Marner, I better get someone younger, like Hanifin.  I wouldn't want someone who could leave as UFA in a short period of time.

Don't do this trade. Keep Marner.

I’m struggling to come up with one but who was the last “great defenseman” who spent years in a bad wnvironment and then went on to be a superstar when with a better organization?

OEL makes the Leafs defense better but at the same time the cost is gong to be steep and I don’t think his skill set is necessarily the key piece that is lacking on the blue line.  Great offensive defenseman who can carry and pass the puck are valuable but I think we need someone who can step in and be a mobile defender more.

This seems like the perfect time to suggest Antropov, Colaiacovo and a 1st. Get it done.
