Kerfoot was 56% on face-offs last season. Back to back 40-point seasons. Was just over 50% in possession last season. The drop from Kadri to him probably isn't that massive.

Maybe. But I worry we may be judging Kadri too much on a down year.

If anything, does this mean Willy replaces Kadri on the top PP unit?

Sort of mixed feelings here. I like Kadri, brain lapses aside, and am a little worried about this team's depth down the middle. I also don't love having to extend both Muzzin and potentially Barrie next year.

But...you've got to crack eggs to make omelettes I guess. Rielly-Barrie-Muzzin is a solid top three and once Dermott is back I think the team will be pretty well set.

I think you have said it perfectly.

We had a glaring need on the blueline particularly after the Zaitsev trade and the only way to address it was to give up a forward of sufficient value to ensure a decent defenceman in return.

I like this deal a lot more than the Zaitsev trade.

Kadri’s a big loss but he’ll get a bigger role in Colorado.

Retaining on Barrie’s cap hit was beautiful. Kerfoot for Rosén is amazing.

This is very interesting.

Probably. But he also likely wasn't going to get back into the 60-point range here.

So, Kerfoot is a centre?  Happy for a good d-man, thought Kadri was the piece to get one...I said it before, but there was no way they were bringing Kadri back given what he did.

Kerfoot would be a really good defensive 3C. Evolving Wild has been pushing for Selke consideration for him.

Barrie is right handed Rielly, so maybe he plays with Muzzin in an ideal situation. We probably go to the mat to extend him if it works out.

While Dermott is down:
Muzzin - Barrie
Rielly - Ceci
Marincin - Holl

It might be Johnsson on the top unit.. Save Willy for Spezza, Barrie, Muzz, whoever

So I guess this makes Rielly now the longest serving Maple Leaf? I always feel like there should be a name for that. The way Parliament does with "Father of the House".

I think he bounced between wing and centre. I'd imagine the Leafs have him pegged as a C to start.

via @Shutdownline. Kerfoot's no Kadri, but the drop there is definitely well worth getting Barrie for. Here's hoping they can get him signed to an extension past this season soon.

Our defence is now better than last season. So those people crying hours ago can calm down.
