Replace his production? are you looking at a career total or the 2018-19 season? Because they had almost identical 2018-19 seasons...
11 goals, 24 assists, 35 points, +9, 47 PIM, 217 Sh, 3 GWG
13 goals, 28 assists, 41 points, +2, 22 PIM, 168 Sh, 2 GWG
If it's career stats, Petro has more career points by 140. +/- is a garbage stat that is catered based on what team/system you play for.
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>mondo</b></div><div>leafs will have about 15 million in cap available, and about half of that will be going to dermott and probably an extension for muzzin. unless pietrangelo <em>really</em> wants to go to toronto i don't think they'll offer him.</div></div>
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>hanson493</b></div><div>without resigning anyone. toronto has 17,673,134 dollars in cape space for next year. you brought up doughty, lets give petro the same deal? that leaves the leafs with: 6,673,134 in cap space. to sign 4 defenseman. add in a 4th center. and a backup goalie. just to ice the full roster. with faulk getting 6.5 x 7 you can already say bye to both muzzin and barrie.</div></div>
Just throwing out the hypothetical scenario. Toronto has been careless with contracts lately so it's not out of their wheelhouse to do something like that. This also doesn't factor in the possibility of the cap going up (even so, it won't be significant but still). Anything is possible.
As it stands, the Blues pairings on defense are pretty stacked. I like this trade for both teams, Faulk wanted out of Carolina and they got a nice prospect in return. The Blues already have Kostin and Kyrou coming up very soon to add to their already young lower line core of Blais, Barbashev, Thomas, Sanford etc.
