That is my thought, both those guys are locked up long term, too team friendly deals. Yes losing Marner hurts like hell, but Teuvo is a very talented 25 year old winger, for about half the contract, and the Leafs are cap crunched, so looking for options makes sense. Teuvo has outstanding possession metrics, scores, and has 5 years at 5.4, which is very good, for a very good player. Pesce is a quality d, and helps where the Leafs have a big need... unless you love Ceci more than reasonably. I would still do it, as a leafs fan, with big sweetener added.
