yeah, that's bad for Toronto.
Leafs decline and block Adams number. I also think Adam is incapable in attempting to fleece the Leafs.
Right because Kapanen, a 30-40 point 3rd line winger is more valuable than a top 4 two way defenseman with good defensive ability which is exactly the kind of dman the Leafs need...
I know you are a Leafs fan and you like to overvalue your players, it's just what you guys do and all you know but this is fair value...
He's a top 6 winger who could have gotten 50 points this year and most likely will next year as well as a top 4 young dman...
Montour is not the defensemen the Leafs need. Maybe for a Johnsson, but if we are trading Kappy, I would rather use him for a Manson.
why? TOR is getting the better player.
Kapanen has quickly become this website's most overrated player... overtaking Athanasiou and Kase from pre-trade deadline.
meh it should still be top 3 protected
And Manson is a HUGE upgrade over Montour?
Johnnson instead of Kapanen and it is a deal
this is hilarious coming from you
I wouldn't make the trade then.
As long as Jokiharju, Pesce and Dylan Strome exist, Kapanen wont crack the top 3 over rated players on this site.
The issue with Montour is buffalo fans cannot decide what he is. Some say he is top 2, some say hes a bottom pairing, and a good amount think trading for him was a mistake. All i can say is hes an option for us to consider
That's because Buffalo has Risto, Joki, Miller, and him. Those are all top 4 defenders.
Montour is 'ok'. He's an alright number 4 guy who is relatively useful in a few situations. He cant carry a pairing, he cant run either special team but he's fine with a decent partner.
Hes basically a worse version of Justin Holl at this point with significantly better PR.
Would you trade Johansson for Cody Ceci?
leafs fans are delusional in regards to kapanen. i wouldn't drop a 2nd for him. his value is taken to an extreme when in reality he's a generic third liner with some fringe 2nd line capability.
pesce rightfully gets a boost because his contract is so appealing... and he's a top 3 defenseman on any team in the league. jokiharju is mostly just in the boat of "whoa we fleeced chicago", and strome... maybe, but he's also a center in a desirable position and age
If Kapanen did not play the way he did in the second half of the season, arguably when Clifford joined the Leafs, we wouldn't be praising him this hard. In the beginning of the season, many Leaf fans were contemplating on whether we should trade Kappy after his horrible start (the stick toss incident against the Habs). However, to me, I feel like we are starting to get Kadri vibes with him.
= 34 even-strength points this year (68 games)
= 38 even-strength points this year (69 games)
Even if we ignore the fact that Reinhart got roughly FIVE
extra minutes in ice-time per game.
thing separating their point totals is that Reinhart gets power-play time and Kapanen doesn't.
Kapanen does kill penalties like a beast though (he also got all his points on Kerfoots line this year - not Eichels line).
The "Kapanen is a 30-40 point 3rd liner"
comments are kind of ridiculous.
He projects to 60-70 points per 82 games on a #1 PP unit (and he would be on Buffalo's).
His stats were even better last year too.
On an unrelated note ... most of the above signings are unrealistic ... Skinner got $9,000,000 x 8 years.
How can Buffalo get 4 (arguably better) forwards with better production to all sign for $5,500,000 or less?
Come on now.
