<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Eli</b></div><div>Good take. I figured Jensen was the centerpiece of the Washington deal. Best penalty killer on Detroit and Washington teams, and an okay #4D with a right shot. 2RD are more scarce than 2Rs right now, and if the cap stays flat again next year, having Jensen locked up cheap for a little bit might allow the Leafs to ice the same top-four on defense for two years in a row, for the first time in I don't know how long. That along with adding Jensen and Pietrangelo could really reduce the workload their goalies face, making an athletic star goalie like Andersen into a luxury.
Do you think LA considers Kerfoot, Engvall, and a 2nd? If the Leafs, realistically, can get a late 2nd from Ottawa, they could flip that and a couple of established players to get a starting goalie who's still cheap this year?
eta: Oshie's from a Washington, but it's not Washington DC, and it might want to pick him next summer: <a href="https://www.quanthockey.com/nhl/us-state/nhl-players-born-in-washington-career-stats.html" rel="nofollow noreferrer noopener" target="_blank">https://www.quanthockey.com/nhl/us-state/nhl-players-born-in-washington-career-stats.html</a></div></div>
Kings don’t want any of that, even your first probably won’t work. He’s been groomed for this role for like 4 years, there is no one else nhl ready.
