    Too much extreme thinking here. It's like he's either a star or a plug. It's possible for him to be nothing more than a 6/7D and still be a really nice addition to the team.

    Every player coming from the KHL is Panarin or Plotnikov.

    No extreme thinking on my part. I'm hopeful he could be a 20-30 point guy at that price on Toronto. Considering the one cap league I'm in goes 900 deep, that'll play nicely.

    This is true but it doesn't work for fantasy leagues that way. Either he's worth acquiring or he is not. My thoughts are that this is a great signing for the Maple Leafs but he's not a guy worth picking up in most fantasy leagues.

    If he's good he makes the team out of camp. If he's not, he's got a completely buriable contract where he can stay on the Marlies, or he'll jump back to the KHL. Lehtonen also said in the 2018-19 season, he played on the right side. To note, the possible schedule issues with COVID, there could be condensed schedule so more options is great.

    So ya, no negative here. Nice no risk signing.

    Those thinking he's immediately fantasy relevant in regular-sized leagues deserve to lose. At best he's on the watch list.

    Looks like Lehtonen thankfully won't have to wait for December to play. The Leafs will loan him back to Jokerit to play, presumably, until the NHL is ready to start the 2020/21 season.

    The @MapleLeafs have agreed to loan defenseman Mikko Lehtonen to #Jokerit. Lehtonen was the #KHL’s top defenseman last season and will join the team next week.

    Doesn't likely change much other than that he might be fresh (or worn out?) already, to come into the start of the season for the Leafs.

    I thought players with KHL contracts cannot leave the KHL until the end of the KHL season. Am I wrong or will that not apply for Lehtonen next season?

    Doesn't apply to loan deals. Kravtsov played part of the season in the KHL and returned to the AHL for example.

    That makes sense. Thank you for the clarification.

    Bump. Now that the free agency dust has settled, where do we see Lehtonen slotting in with the additions of Brodie and Bogosian? For the record, CapFriendly has this for the Leafs D depth chart:

    Rielly-Brodie
    Muzzin-Holl
    Dermott-Bogosian

    A couple things. I don't see how some people still view Holl an a regular NHL D-man. To me, he is an AHL call-up when injury strikes. I also don't see Bogosian playing regularly for the full season, I assume he'll be slotted in an out. I'd personally like to see Lehtonen placed in Holl's spot but I guess that will come down to camp etc. Something I do like is the added depth should give Sandin another full year of AHL development (if there is an AHL season).

    Lehtonen's KHL stats with Jokerit this season as of October 24: 14GP-8G-8A-16P
    PAT QUINN MEMORIAL CUP
    Clouds of Blood
    12 Team Head-to-Head
    G-A-PPP-SOG-FW-HIT-BLK / W-GAA-SV%-SV
    24 Man Roster
    Keep: 6 Forwards, 4 Defencemen, 1 Goaltender & 1 Prospect
    Keepers:
    C - McDavid, Matthews, Aho
    LW - Panarin
    RW - Pastrnak
    D - Hedman, Hamilton, Doughty, Burns
    G - Markström
    P - Cayden Primeau

    This looks about right to me. Bogo will inevitably spend some time on the IR giving Hope his part time chances.
