Is a problem really addressed if it leaves no room to address other problems / creates more?

I know depth is more important, but what would help the Leafs more getting Pietrangelo or getting DeMelo and Tanev?

Shea Weber.... Even Bobby Orr was traded.

Bobby Orr wasn't traded. He signed as a free agent with Chicago.

Tanev is usually injured by the first week of pre-season

No team will ever have all of its problems addressed. Adding a perennial Norris Trophy candidate who has Captained his team to a Stanley Cup and fills a black hole sized void on the right side addresses a massive gap.

Isn’t a person with a history of injuries less likely to get them in the future🤔

Things always seem to even out in the end

Living in BC, I watch a lot of Canucks games and can assure you he plays like a warrior. When you block 6-8 shots per game, you take some bruises. Exactly what we need for the playoffs
( not like that midget Demelo) 😡😆

How much do you think DeMelo gets on his new contract?

what about other options - in particular younger d-men?

Pietrangelo window of 3-4 years might be too big of a risk, considering Leafs want to have a chance 6-8 years with their current core of Marner-Matthews-Rielly (and Tavares + others to a lesser extent).

I think a person with a history of injuries is more likely to break down again than someone who has been consistently healthy their entire career.

But usually teams can start to address those problems as the cap grows. This situation potentially adds more losses over the coming years. Maybe given the prospect of a flat cap for a while, we might need to fill it with someone for $4M or so less.

Why do you think I was so excited to correct you about Bobby Orr? This is my safe space where I (very rarely) say something that is accepted as correct.

There are always cheap pieces to be had that can fill gaps. DeMelo, for example, who everyone* seems to like was only making 900k this year.

Who is to say that Marner, Matthews, or Rielly will all be here in 6-8 years?!

You can count me in Mr. Sir's corner on Demelo.
I don't see how Matt Hunwick v2.0 will help Leafs next season.

those guys would need to be acquired via trade... Parayko, Pesce, Ekblad would all be great additions as well..
