Would Gus be impactful on Leafs with Barrie and Rielly as #1 and #2 PP options? Also IDK about Crow, but he seems to be struggling a lot this year. Just my two things about this. It would be a fair deal.

Do the leafs even have the cap space for this? They have Zach Hyman coming back from injury at 2.5 mil. They would have to more than just Kapanen.

I don't like it. Gus without PP points isn't really worth while and I'd sooner keep Hutch as backup than lose Kapanen. I think you can do much better with movie Kapanen than a PP Specialist that isn't needed and an aging goalie who really doesn't look good.

Yeah, it might not be a great fit. Great thoughts! Having Gus would reinforce the up and down style of play. Gus is definitely an offensive defenseman. To me...this is the PIT model and TOR would be telling the league..Fine...go ahead and score 5 on us every night. We're going to score 7 and also hope between Anderson and Crow that you don't actually score 5, but again...if you do...we'll survive.

That is actually a fantastic trade. TOR gets Cro for a fair price and can resign him to a reasonable number in the offseason. Gus will be a solid addition to the D (in the right role.) CHI gets a guy who could easily fit in with Toews and Kane and add some speed. Also not tied up to retaining Cro's salary for too long because the deal expires at the end of this season. I love it.
