<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Trickster</b></div><div>You overpaid Holl.

We are weaker on LW then RW, move Kapanen instead of Johnsson.

TVR is 3rd pair, paying him to be healthy scratch? Pass.

Eakin will likely get more money elsewhere, no reason to pay that much to 4th line C... so many cheap options out there


Rather invest that money in paying Andersen or Riley going forward.</div></div>

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Jamiepo</b></div><div>As far as defensive th goes I would say we are stronger on the left. Left handed anyway. Certainly more skill on the right with Willy and Mitch. Butt our depth on the left is Johnsson mikheyev Moore engvall Korshkov and Robertson as sure fire nhlers. Then Petan and Timashov. Due to the fact that Hyman is great on the left and with the skill on the right he will most likely stay a left winger... that leaves us with Willy mitch kappy and spezza on the right. I would say our easiest to move pieces would be a left hand winger.</div></div>

Definitely agree with <a href="/users/jamiepo" target="_blank">@jamiepo</a>. Would also add that kapanen’s skill set is more difficult to replace than johnsson’s. I also think he has more upside if he can ever figure out how to finish.

Also, the lack of d depth has been a huge issue for the leafs. Sandin and liljgren are probably going to be solid for them next year but who knows - that’s a big question mark. I’d rather overpay a proven veteran defenseman to sit in the press box for the whole season than have to watch Martin marincin play 20 minutes a night if there’s an injury, liljegren cant hack it, holl struggles, etc.
