If we hadn't traded for Kassian, Biggs may have been worth consideration but right now we have Kassian and Gaunce to fill the "physical" role. Kadri is also NHL ready, whereas Biggs is not. We need the former to benefit a cup run. Mostly, Kadri fills a need while Biggs couldn't dislodge Higgins or Hansen any time soon. If we're trading Schneider. I want to address just about everything.
Ah I see. Makes sense.

Heck, I'm willing to throw in Connolly for Raymond if you think it would help your roster to have a center .

Kind've OT, but the Leafs experimented with Franson on the left side last year and it turned out rather poorly. Just looking at your proposed roster there...not sure if you meant that to be the sides they play on or not.

Oh, and Kipper's source says NHL agreed to 63m. Guess that discussion was kinda pointless lol. I think it will end up at around 63.5 or 64m, and then we can drop the puck.
63M eh? Would give Vancouver a little more wiggle room for sure.
