Why would Toronto give more for Colin Miller than you guys Vagas? He has a year less on his contract and he hasnt had a good season. The only way I see this working is if Buffalo retains.

TOR are desperate for a good RD. Giving Miller someone he doesn't need to defend with his life in the paint, like Andersen, would be a huge move. Toronto also has little leverage to lower the asking price

We made the playoffs after that trade, you handed out one of the worst contracts in the league. We did not lose that trade boi. I'm trying to make you good for the first time in a decade.

They could just sign TVR no picks lost. Or Tanev.

CAR aren't letting TVR go, there's already discussions too extend him, no leverage still. Wanna go to someone like Vatanen? Does't fill their need. Dillon? LHD. DeMelo? He's about to be extended in Winnipeg. Toronto have little leverage. This years class of D men are all either LHD or offensive RD

Yea Collin Miller isn't good. He has been scratched 1/4 of the season. Dude is trash. Leafs are not desperate for a rh d. We want one. If we want one we wouldn't want a bottem pairing man. We would want a top 4 d man

And you think you're gonna get him from Columbus? Good luck with that. Plus, he doesn't fill your need for a solid DFD.

AHHAHAHAHAHAHAhA YOU SO DUMB.
There are Columbus fans that are giving us offers that make sense for us and them. They need centres so they wanna give us Savard for Kerfoot. Savard is a top 4 d man that is good defensively and can hit
If your mad that leaf fans don't want miller then why did you trade for him. Columbus already has Murray. Jones, ZW, Nutivaara. Savard is a ufa and they wouldn't mind trading him.
Savard is 20x better than a healthy scratch ****
