    There's no mystery that Marner will get paid and within the expected range.

    Where the focus should be is Kapanen, Dermott, Johnsson, Sparks as well as the fact we only really have 4D under contract next year - 5, if we count Holl (but do we?)
    I think there's a good chance Kapanen gets an offer sheet.
    It wouldn't surprise me if someone offered Dermott a 6x5m deal (Vancouver, are you reading this?!).

    Marner will sign quickly... that's going to put the gears to this GM group to lock in these 3 before July 1 as well.
    and that's really where the focus of the summer should be.
    Like our goalie depth in Sept. we could lose a couple of these kids.
    I would be surprised if no offer sheet is given.
    Yesterday's weirdness is tomorrow's reason why. - H.S.T.

    Teams don't win cups based off their top 4 players, they get to the playoffs based off the top 4 players. There's always the need of depth in 2 factors (Forward, Defense, Goalie) to make it deep. Toronto doesn't even have 1 of that depth locked up to be fine with only having 1 locked in going into next yr.

    Like said above, Dermott, Kap, AJ, Sparks all need extensions and that's the championship make or breakers.

    So Tavares leaving NY for Toronto has worked out great for both teams. 2nd and 3rd in the Eastern Conference. Crazy.

    Umm... Id say Trotz going to the Isles was a good thing and if Tavares had stayed put, would have a better shot at a cup this year than he does now.

    The leafs better hope their power play catches absolute fire in the playoffs or they have little shot with that defense

    No doubt Trotz is huge and the players have to buy in to a guy who won the last Cup.

    Babcock switching up the D in the 2nd period. Dermott with Gardiner, Rielly+Hainsey, Muzzin+Rielly, and Zaits+Muzzin were all present in the 2nd. I think this was just Babcock realizing he had the game in hand, and it was a good time for him to play around with the D.

    Powerplay was finally moving around and not just looking for the one play. Looked great zipping it around. But Avs PK is terrible so...

    Cue the on fire PP. Much more movement is giving the PK on the other team fits. Adding Muzzin's shot to the second unit is helping too, along with Nylander & Kap's confidence brimming. I can see Babcock reverting to last years PP split where it is 60/40 or even 50/50 as far as PP1 and PP2 icetime goes. Hopefully this carries through to playoffs - the adjustments in how they are moving seem to be working for now.

    3 of their centers are on PP1, he definitely should be leaning on the PP2 just to give the centers a rest before their next shift.

    The ref yelling at Andersen to move it on the 1st goal bugs the hell out of me. I hate when refs yell at goalies to move it.

    No update on Johnsson's injury from the Leafs but Terry Koshan from the Toronto Sun reported that he travelled with the team to Phoenix and was walking about without crutches or a noticeable limp. Hopefully he only misses a couple of games at most.
