Getting younger and tougher

Team: 2022-23 Vancouver Canucks
Team Explanation
RE: Trade with Washington gets both teams fair value.

RE: Trade with Leafs - Canucks get a true 3rd line Centre (with only 1 year remaining), and an underperforming RH D-man.
Leafs get an equally underperforming RH D-man but for $750k less, and get much needed cap space to sign Jack Campbell. Engvall takes Kerfoot's spot.

LW/RW tough guy Deslauriers signed to keep other teams honest with our smaller forwards, and RH stay-at-home, tough D-man Chariot signed to maximize Rathbone's potential.

Future Cap flexability to Sign Horvat long term and Kuzmenko if he turns into a legit solid NHL player.

Poolman is by far the least valuable asset in that leafs trade. He's awful and an awful player with retention is still awful.
The leafs dont touch that

I don’t think the caps could say no to that trade. Not having to give up a first for a guy like Miller would be great. It would suck to lose McMichael, but Kuznetsov-Miller-Lapierre down the middle would do just fine.

If it means the difference between acquiring a 1st/Lapierre VS. McMichael/2nd, I think they should go for the first option.

Leafs can get an earlysecond for kerfoot, and a late third to Walt fourth for holl. So no. Leafs decline

I disagree. You're judging Poolman after one subpar year in Vancouver where he played half the season, and the other half hurting. He is FAR MORE (and I mean FAAAARRRRR) defensively responsible than Holl. The Leafs could play him with Sandin.

I agree that Kerfoot could be more than I'm offering, maybe upgrading the offer to a 3rd rounder, then maybe a 2nd if Kerfoot signs an extension.

They way you've structured this deal says otherwise.

You're trading away a contract with term, for two expiring contracts and you're willing to retain half salary for three years on Poolman.

If he's FARRRRRRRR more defensively responsible than Holl, maybe you should keep him.

It's all about Kerfoot, and possibly retain him longer term. These trades also would give us the flexability to jettison Jason Dickinson (hopefully not having to add too much), and sign a couple of UFAs which make us tougher. We got pushed around last year too much.

Poolman has been awful forever, now hes older more awful and expensive. Putting him as the 7th d if he made league min would be a bad idea.
He's nothing the leafs want

I'm quite sure there are many members of the TML who have pools....it would be beneficial to have a Poolman! AHAHAHAHA!!!!
