    - 2 yrs at this level (23 & 24 yr old seasons) kind of suggest that this is what he is. Late career offensive breakouts happen, but they're pretty rare
    - Does seem to have something of a nose for the net though, and looks to have good speed and good edges (the couple videos I've seen show him carrying his speed into his glide very well
    - Looks to have at least an okay engine. Most of his highlights that I saw came from him making some sort of hustle play to create the opportunity.
    The amount of energy necessary to refute bullshit is an order of magnitude larger than is required to produce it.

    We haven't had much luck with bringing in guys from overseas like this.

    Let me dream will ya? Also, Brown's contract probably has to disappear regardless of Connorov Brownev above.

    Yeah, Brown is a goner.

    The Leafs weren't going to be able to afford $2.1M for a player in his position on the depth chart in any case, but his miserable season & playoffs this year should seal the deal even more.

    I'd be surprised if we weren't in on Larsson. They've crippled his value.

    He put up 26 points, which is solid production for a 4th liner, problem is that Babcock thinks of him as a 2nd or 3rd liner, that's a coaching issue and not a Conner Brown one. Having said that, I don't think he brings much (if anything to the team), and really I can't justify his 2.1 million cap hit, so yes I could see him being dealt to a team that needs to reach the cap floor (hello arizona).

    Seems like a fair deal to me. You could even make it a conditional first in 2020 if the Coyotes make it to the playoffs, if not it stays a 2nd.

    You mean Andersen? I like Nurse, and I think he'd be a valauble top 4D here, but thats a bad move to include Andersen in any deal. The leafs just don't have a starting goalie in their system, do you really want to run with Sparks as the starter for 60 games? Sure Andersen has his warts, but at the end of the day he's a top 5-10 goalie in the NHL, most teams would kill to have him on their team.

    I didn't see the Kucherov hit, and I fail to see with what that hit has to do with Kadri's antics in Game 2, to me its just a defense mechanism at its finest. The nazem hit was nothing short of dangerous, reckless, and could have seriously injured the guy had he struck him 3-4 inches lower along the neckline, there is zero place for that kind of behaviour in the NHL, period! Of course Kadri doesn't have any friends in the NHL head office and why should he? The dude has faced NHL discipline 9 times (including this one), he doesn't get the benefit of the doubt here, and if I'm being honest here, 5 games was far too lenient, it should have been 30 (10 for the hit, 10 for intent, 10 for repeat offender status), and those games should carry over into the 2019/20202 season.

    The Blues are something else. They were dead last in the league in January
