Let’s go to Calgary and get Chris Tanev at $4.5x2 years for Holl and Kerfoot.

Leafs save $1m and Calgary, with only 20 players signed plus Monahan, gets closer to 23.

Exchange RFAs Sandin for Ruzicka who is a big boy, has scoring ability and can play C or wing.

Waiving Simmonds and Clifford make the cap work.

I actually really like this, we probably have to add a pick, but having a d core of
reilly tanev
Muzzin brodie
Gio lily

This might be one of the best D cores in the league.

I don't think you get a top 4 D with two years remaining for two pending UFA's. If Calgary would, then Leafs should. Ruzicka and Sandin probably have similar value as Ruzicka has improved each season and seems to have/ be figured it out.

Kerfoot, Holl and Sandin for Tanev and Ruzicka seems light on the Leafs end.

Tanev is made of glass. As much as as I like him, that's a really scary one for me. Risk vs reward say I probably do it if it's a good deal.

I don't think CGY accepts this though. Tanev is worth more than two bottom of the lineup rentals.

LL, I think Tanev has missed only one game in last 3 years so he’s not glass anymore.

RLF, who do you suggest we add? Anderson or someone else not named Knies?

Like the idea.
Holl fills a need for Calgary at RHD where they have little to no depth.
Kerfoot fills a need in their top nine forward group.
Sandin gives Flames back some youth for the future.
Instead of Tanev (excellent player but brittle) and Ruzicka I would prefer Leafs target Mackenzie Weager even if we have to throw in a 3rd round sweetener to get it done.
Leafs could have had Weager 3 years ago for a combination of any two of Andreas Johansson, Dermot and Kapanen but Dubas said no.
Now Johnson, Dermot and Kapanen are gone and Leafs are still looking for a defenseman.

@Rsears Tanev just had surgery in may and will probably miss the start of the season. He's still glass, looks like he just played through a bit of it.

Rsears. What I see Calgary needing is and RW that can score. They need a top 6 RW imo. They have 4-5 currently who play/ can play RD. They have enough Kerfoot types. If they want to still be competitive, and I would think the huge money they gave Huberdeau says they do, they need a top 6 RW more than anything.
