Nick Ritchie had 6 hits last game, but he is not a top 6 forward. I would like to see him on the third line where there isn't that much pressure

Hey Mr.Dinkiee

Did ya hear about Colorado’s cap situation?
The whole league was probably laughing at them, right?
Pretty embarrassing if you ask me.

Hmmm. A solid 2 way center in Kerfoot who can play anywhere in the lineup and manages to produce. Seems to make anyone around him play better. Has never taken a night off. Yes. Let’s trade him for an overhyped one dimensional player.
3 games in dude. Without Matthews and Mikheyev. Ritchie will come around.

I'm hoping Ritchie does, but right now, he's vanilla

He never said he wants out, and we still don't have to take assets we don't want

????? The usual non sensical trades. Strome right now is not better offensively than Kerfoot, and certainly isn't a better player. Trading an NHL Dman for a AHL forward doesn't help the Leafs offence either. And to think Krat is suddenly a 2nd line winger.

You do get a few more years of control though. Its a good trade for the Leafs but Chicago wouldn't do it.

I wouldn’t trade Dermott, he is playing well. If Holl continues to struggle, I hope Dermott will be able to replace him on the second pair.

So the leafs need a top 6 winger "badly" so you trade kerfoot for a slow guy who cant drive a line or scoreon his own or defend and then add another guy who has shown zero ability to be even an nhl regular let alone a top 6 guy and couldn't make the rangers?

We don’t have any space for Dermott. Switch him with a 3rd and New York accepts

Trading a defenseman to the Rangers is kind of like taking sand to the beach.

Sure they do they can say its not going to happen! Just like the Leafs did when Mikheyev asked for a trade.

Dermott is not an improvement on our backend at all. Completely worthless and unnecessary to acquire him. We own Kravtsov’s rights still for the next 5-6 years. No need for an awful move like this.

But even if Kerfoot is overrated.....he's better than any one else on the team that could take and his place, and better than other players on teams that the Leafs would /could trade for.
On most teams, there are 8 players playing above their cap, 8 players playing at their cap, 8 players playing below their cap. Sure you want to replace the players not playing to their value, but geez replacing them with worse players is no solution.
