This is a terrible trade by the Leafs. Sandin has so much upside. I cannot understand why Keefe seemed to so strongly dislike him.
And for those curious:
McCabe this year 122 hits
Sandin 113 hits
He obviously isn't McCabe's physicality (or close), but he isn't a soft player. He is a smooth skating defenseman who dominated third pairing minutes, with good offensive upside. Its not even Washington's first, its Boston's first, which is going to be at best like 28th or something.
