Interesting, Johnsson accepted his 787K qualifying offer.

Makes sense though, he's going to get a much better offer after a full season in NHL compared to what the Leafs were offering him right now. I'd be shock if he didn't put up a 20g/40p season this year.

not to mention they'll probably keep Horton off LTIR this season and that'll keep them from having 2M+ in carryover bonus overage on the cap again.


Too bad Leafs couldn't trade him to Arizona.

^ i can't remember, are you a bpj impersonator or the real deal?


He hasn't mentioned how much he hates Bozak and is happy he's gone so I'm kinda doubtful.


Yeah, it's me. I purposely mentioned Zidane's dad to subtly "prove" it was me. Sup dude?

Super glad Bozo is gone. Don't get me wrong. But I don't feel the need to s*** on a guy that's not on the team anymore. I wish him the best now that he's not a Leaf.

its fine this year they have a lot of cap space that they wont be using and they'll dump him back on LTIR the following season.

I often forget about that trade. Dave Nonis didn't do much as GM but getting out of that Clarkson contract was absolute genius.


It was Clarkson's agent that orchestrated it all. Nonis just had to sign on the dotted line AFTER going and asking the MLSE board for more money to un-do his $37,500,000 mistake of course. He doesn't get credit for creating a mess and having someone smarter bail him out.

Totally agree here. But man... I have to think Dubes offered him something along the lines of a 4yr/2mil per contract. Good on AJ if he declined, but that's a tough one. If he injures himself, he'll regret it. All for what... How much more does a 20/40 season get him? a 5yr x 3mil? It's not worth the risk in my opinion. He hasn't cashed in on an ELC the way Willy has.

Not sure if y'all are subscribed to The Athletic, but if not I highly recommend it. There's a couple writers who are worth the sub on their own.

Anyway, Ian Tulloch today had a fantastic article about the Leafs blueline an what they should do in no major changes are made. Something I and others have advocated was to create a Gardiner - Rielly pairing. They have previously been a strong duo, and this would give Dermott a chance to play more on the 2nd pairing at LD. I haven't been a big fan of Zaitsev, but I do think he has more to give. That pairing could potentially work.

Lots to play with. Their blueline isn't good yet, but it's good enough.

Who knows where we'll be in a few years with Sandin and Liljegren.

The Leafs coverage on The Athletic is great, far and away the best leafs coverage around.

they also have a 40% off deal on right now. not sure how often they do that (I think it's fairly often) but it's pretty much always worth it.
