Bracco is a future hall of famer.

Bracco is replaced by Barabanov.

Engvall replaces Sheahan

Gaulthier replaces Korshkov, if the two rookies net difference is required to be replaced.

Dermott has to be traded for Lehtonen

Only one rookie.

Bracco is not, but maybe he can play 3rd or 4th line minutes for cheap.

So I don't hate the idea of bracco feeding robertson the puck. Give him a year, see if he can do it and dump him. Hell just say screw it run 3 lines 90 % of the game

Where is Lethnon the khls best defensemen. He is on 🔥 right now and as soon as the season starts he will be playing.

Be real. no one is helping the Leafs undo the cap issues created by GM Doogie Howser.

The problem is, we would need to have 4 rookies on the team every year, as the good KHL players and ELC players we have start to demand more money. As soon as a guy wants more than league minimum, we can’t keep him. The churn in roster would be huge. We would have almost an entirely different bottom six to work with every year. Not unlike what we have now actually. But even worse.

The only concern for the Kuemper for Andersen trade is Kuempers injury history. Otherwise, he is a perfect replacement. This deal makes so much sense for both teams that it won’t happen.

I don' think cash strapped team like ARZ is going to want to retain any salary on a quality asset when they have so many more players they would rather dump. Freddie is valuable to them with his $1M in real money. Still not sure Keumper is the guy ARZ moves this year.

If Piet wants 9.25 or that is what it takes, I would pass on him. 8.5 is the max for me, if and only if we can move salaries like Kerfoot and Johnsson and/ or a good return on Nylander where we get young ELC/ prospects/ picks type assets back.
