I get what you're saying Nik and I don't disagree. The better of the two will bring you more in return. My personal opinion is that's Johnsson. I'm sure that's not the opinion of everyone.

Personally I think they're pretty similar.

I would disagree. I think Johnsson has more finesse and offensive ability. Kapanen has more speed and more defensive ability. Their value to the team is probably pretty similar for different reasons.

Is the assumption that Shattenkirk will be expensive?
Any chance he takes less to play for a contender?
1 year @ 1M on the 3rd pairing would be worth it.  Buryable if needed...

I said pretty similar, not identical. We're not talking about Tie Domi vs. Sergei Berezin.

I mean, if you mean pretty similar in that they're both young'ish and can skate...sure.

Well, and that minor niggling detail where they had virtually the exact same year last year.

I think they're pretty close in value (I might put Kapanen slightly above Johnsson), but they're not very close in playing style at all.

Without delving too far into the Leafs off-season, so far.. I believe that if Shattenkirk is willing to explore signing with a contender and signing for, anywhere near 1.4 million or less, Dubas needs to do whatever he can to sign the guy.
I could live with waiving guys like Harpur and Holl, if it meant having a player like that, even for a year. I don't think Harpur and Holl are in our future anyway. I get that it's nice to have depth, but;

Reilly-Shattenkirk
Muzzin-Barrie
Dermitt-Ceci

Looks like a promising group to me.
