not gonna discuss Manson trades, too hard to speculate, and too many angry fans, so I'll stay out of that discussion. in terms of having him on this team though, I approve. I really don't think trading barrie for someone to sit in the press box is the answer ( I don't think barrie should be traded at all for that matter). so if you keep barrie and add Manson, there's no need to throw kapanen and dmytro away for Larsson, who I personally wouldn't trade kapanen for. At that point, if you're keeping kapanen, there's not really much need for Bennett, as the leafs have reams of forwards, but at the same time he does add grit and is a good secondary scoring option. But if an injury at defence happens (probably will given this season), you'll certainly wish you kept Dermott in the fold. <div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>mytduxfan</b></div><div>KK isn’t a developing player anymore and likely won’t get better. He certainly won’t continue improving for the next 3-6 years. He’s just entering his prime years and his goal totals have dropped this year too.
No interest in Dermot as we have Lindholm and Fowler at LD.
Agree that this move would be best for TOR. Manson is gonna be too expensive (I’m talking Liljegren + 1st +, not KK + Dermot) and won’t solve your problems.
He won’t be traded without an overpay. That’s going to be Liljegren (Manson replacement) + 1st (security in case Liljegren doesn’t pan out) +. He’s highly valued by the organisation and a leader in the locker room. I can’t remember the exact quote from TSN, but something about “you don’t love your wife more than ANA loves Manson”.
That’s going to be price or something around that. It’s overpay, but that’s why it is highly-likely Manson won’t be traded because. He’s going to be too expensive for what he brings. Fine by me. I’d prefer him to stay in ANA.
Sarcasm? Manson price is high because he’s loved by the organisation and he’s a leader. No need to move him for less either. Having said that, the price isn’t Matthews. Liljegren + 1st +, which, for me, doesn’t sniff a fair Matthews bid.
Severson? Fill your boots if you think he’s better than Manson.</div></div>
quite obviously for Matthews sarcasm yes. And think about it this way: liljegren is a recent first rounder, so lets say his value is a first round pick. I'm not paying two first rounders, plus something else, for him. You can argue that he's worth it, and you're entitled to that opinion, but I just wouldn't give that much up for him.
