Giving up a 2nd in next year's draft and the last pick in the 1st round isn't much. They need to re-sign him first as he's an RFA, but he'll definitely be an upgrade over Bernier. Leafs are actually on the up and up and I'm impressed that's all it took to get him.

With Matthews joining the Leafs later this week and Andersen between the pipes, there's definitely cause for excitement among Leafs Nation. Something we could use

i wouldn't exactly call Anderson "stability"...he's a pretty pedestrian goalie imo, plus he played behind a pretty a good Ducks team that shut it down in the 2nd half.
Reimer has almost identical stats with similar games and played most of last year behind a shitty Toronto team


Looks like Florida is making a run for Keith Yandle

If we get Dubois with the 5th pick, and Demko rising the ranks over the next couple years, there is still some excitement.

I was thinking the other day, with the addition of Gudbranson, our back-end could end up being huge.

Edler - 6'3" 215
Tanev - 6'2'" 190
Gudbranson - 6'5" 215
Hutton - 6'2'" 185
Sbisa - 6'2" 200
Tryamkin - 6'7" 230
Pedan - 6'5" 210

Hamhuis? - 6'1" 210

I guess I'm glad we didn't spring for MAF instead. As BobMack said: "No one would have batted and eye if they drafted an 18yr old goalie with the 30th pick."

So are you saying we'd have a huge D in our back-end?

I thought you would get more for Andersen? haha Benning fucked the ducks over with the Lack trade!

At least Gillis got us Horvat in the 9th overall pick.

I wonder where our offence is going to come from on the back end? Edler? Hutton? Next player would be Sbisa? lol

Trust in Lou. He got the goalie he wanted.


If it doesn't work out, Andersen will wake up next to a horse's head while we get another lotto pick.

$5.5 AAV for Andersen?!?! Are they mad??? Inb4 Andersen mails it in for 5 seasons and disappears into obscurity after cashing in, somehow, on pretty limited and moderate success playing on a President's Trophy calibre team.

Stamkos is not worth 12 mil. Look at Tampa, they made it to the eastern final without him. He's a great player, but is no Toews or Crosby.

As a Sabres fan, fuck no, I wouldn't offer him more than 9 mil per cap hit, if even that, maybe 8. Just keep building around Eichel, Reinhart, Risto & O'Reilly. Stamkos hasn't been as dynamic post leg injury and has been very one dimensional, a lot of Lighting fans even want the team to let him walk as an UFA.

At least our GM Murray said he has no idea where that report came from as the Sabres haven't even begun internal discussions about contract dollars for UFA targets, could be Stamkos' agent throwing shit out there to drive up hype. Only thing that worries me is Pegula has too much money and loves spending it as evident from building Penn State an arena, building a full state of the art practice facility, training center next to the the Sabres' arena and full arena upgrades with his own money. Not to even mention purchasing the Bills & the contracts handed out to Leino, Ehrhoff & O'Reilly, at least O'Reilly is worth his contract.

Rangers beat writer saying Blackhawks are kicking tires at Malkin trade, Rangers fans are saying this guy is usually pretty reliable. Chicago Chronicle paper saying they hearing this too and Kyperos also was saying earlier this playoffs he thinks this might be Malkins last year with Pens.




No idea how Chicago would make this work under the cap.

If this is true, wow! I really admire how Stan Bowman has absolutely no hesitation when it comes to going after players. Most GM's in his position would probably do very little and remain hamstrung by the team's cap issues and look for cheaper options without moving too many pieces.

If Malkin is traded to the Blackhawks, perhaps the Pens want to add more experience, and depth on their blueline. Maybe a top pairing defenceman is traded to Pittsburgh in order to create the cap room to acquire Gino?


When Trevor Daley was injured during the Stanley Cup Finals, the Pens' defensive depth was weakened somewhat.

It's actually depressing looking at the Player Profiles page.
