<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Onslaught77</b></div><div>Every player that's left Buffalo has done better and while you guys hate Justin Holl and want him gone I think him getting taken in the expansion draft would be devastating to the Leafs so even if he doesn't play a single game it's worth it because you can expose him and protect Holl. On top of that while you guys think a first round pick with zero scouting is worth the world I don't particularly. As for Dermott, I know you guys love him. I know but I don't get why. He's nowhere near the stud everyone makes him out to be. Might sound harsh but I tell it like it is. Ullmark has played well on a team where nobody does. As much as I appreciate what Freddy has been for us, He's hurt and he's not good when he hasn't been playing and no matter the situation it doesn't make sense to resign him.
As it stands at the end of this season Holl is gone if we don't get someone to expose and Freddy isn't coming back. Dermott isn't good and a player that's at least as good and possibly better is worth the shot if it also gives the team someone to expose.</div></div>
Of course they have it's been publicly stated by players who have left (O'Reilly said he lost his love of the game, and Lehner turned to drugs and alcohol Just to name a couple). When did I say I hate and want Holl gone? I didn't, I want him to stay. Why would he get taken in the expansion draft? The leafs can and most likely will protect Holl in the ED. Not sure why you don't think they can't or won't protect Holl. The leafs will go 8-1 Matthews, Marner, Tavares, Nylander, Rielly, Muzzin, Brodi, Holl & Campbell. Why would they go 7-1? Again, never said a late 1st in this year's draft was worth the world. Maybe you should not make assumptions, just a thought. Who made Dermott out too be a stud? He's a serviceable NHL player I think your expectations of him are too high. No you don't you make assumptions and think that you're correct (which is fine, but it doesn't mean you always are... nobody is perfect and if you think you're always right you will never learn anything). I agree Ullmark is good and it will cost a lot too get him, as it should. I also never said we should re-sign Freddie... I think it would be a mistake too. Dermott can and will be exposed if he doesn't get traded which he likely won't for that reason. Again, I think your expectations of him are too high, he's a serviceable NHLer. Not a chance Miller is better than Dermott.
