I think it’s more a mutual thing. He wasn’t signed by the current management and hasn’t really developed into his contract.

Reportedly there is a press conference on right now somewhere where Dubas is addressing the media. Something big might happen

Didn’t he make some comments about the media. Wasn’t Muzzin mentioned? Something about media scrutiny etc. Anyone?

The Leafs have Rosen and Borgman waiting in the AHL ready to take a spot. This will be their chance if they ever had one. Toronto will also likely grab some cheap free agent dman.

They tried trading him last season and found no takers. It’s gonna take retention or a sweetener. Let’s be realistic.

If Rosen is going to be their 3rd best D in the beginning of the season they're going to be in biiiiig trouble.

Is filling Gardners, Zaitsev, Hainsey's roster spot for a couple of AHL D and a cheap FA really the best solution?

Flyers can send you Gudas with retention for a pick. Or Hagg. 😉

Might be, or might not. He could have a good showing. Just turned 25 and was one of the best defenders in the AHL (was 2nd in the AHL version of the Norris if I recall correctly). Borgman ain't bad either and could bring a nice level of physicality to the leafs.

Its not likely to be pretty but I mean its going to give the leafs some time to evaluate what they got.

Muzzin - Rielly
Rosen - Liljegren
Sandin - Borgman

When will Toronto realize they will NEVER win without addressing their D .. definition of insanity; doing the same thing over and over expecting a different result

Question.. what do the Leafs and the Easter Bunny have in common? .. both never make it to May
