    ceiling being Hjalmarsson/Larsson, he's not going to give you offense. He's going to make standing anywhere Andersen an extremely unpleasant experience for anyone not in a Leafs sweater.

    perhaps I'm under-selling his overall game and have been led to think he's more of a defensive specialist here's a good breakdown of what to expect. His agent has basically told all other NHL teams he's committed to the Leafs for next season:

    Last few months leafs are in bottom half in scoring, thats where the issue is not Roman Polak...

    > Even if it weren't, Rielly (and Gardiner too, albeit to a lesser extent) draws the toughest quality of competition on the team so comparing his +- to Polak (who draws much easier QoC) is meant to prove what, exactly? Even with tougher QoC, Rielly's numbers are far better than Polak's.
    > Scoring almost always starts from the D. They are the ones who usually make the first breakout pass out of their own zone. The Leafs generate their least amount of shot attempts when Marincin, Zaitsev and Polak are playing. Polak is not the only cause of their dry offence, true, but he's undeniably a contributing factor.

    edit: Oh, did I mention that Polak has 32 minutes (in 27 games!) in penalties to Rielly's 10 (in 46 games) ? That certainly doesn't help the team's scoring problems either, needing to kill penalties because Roman can't keep up.

They're not going to move any significant assets unless someone like Tanev, who has 2 years left on his deal is coming back.
    I've never understood the Ozhiganov hype but I'm guessing it's just because of Toronto. I've never been impressed by him and he's already 25 years old, so I'm not expecting him to get any better. Maybe he surprises and can become a decent bottom-pair D-man at the NHL level but I definitely wouldn't expect anything more than that.

    Leafs would have to trade for them as their rights are held by Minn & Vegas. Korshkov is sitting there, drafted by Tor. See what happens with him next year. He's wasn't getting much playing time in Russia with Lokomotiv until this year

    I don't think we can rely on these Overseas signings to be viable stop gaps anymore... Need a real big name to fill out the top 4

    I mean when they become FA. Both sound as if they don't want to be a part of those teams

    Gusev, total agreement, especially after Shipachev... Kaprizov I think just took the money vs ELC he would have signed. I can see him coming over.
