I was just thinking this actuallyLou was smart to swoop in early on Palmieri. I feel like thats the guy the Leafs actually needed, and hoped Foligno could be.
He had a terrible regular season, but has been a legit top line winger and its no surprise that he is having a huge playoffs. Zajac would have been huge for us also after the Tavares injury.
IMO that was the trade that we missed out on moreso than Hall.
no cap room for him I don't think. unless he is our Hyman replacement.no fucking doubt.
so, like, what is the train of thought going forward with Foligno?
do you think the organization wants to keep him if the price is right? I can’t imagine that Kyle would have made that trade without having some sort of plan going forward to have him in the team for at least next season.
I just wanted to point out that Hall being ok does not automatically mean that Foligno was a smashing success and a great acquisition. Bash Hall all you want but please do not pump Big Dick Nick. That is all.
