holds most the value in this deal for us, u have to give us one good piece and he is it.
is also good, not a huge loss from your perspective, u get to keep your 1st and we get a 2nd to hopefully add a decent prospect to the pool.
is a Pending UFA so there isn't quite as much value (And i'm not there was a ton to begin with honestly) With our cap situation next year we could very well just use him as a rental and let him walk at the end of the year, who knows maybe he will come back to you if you want him.
is really no loss from your perspective since he doesn't want to play there and doesn't have a contract and he is just a throw-in from our perspective so the deal is a little bit better, and we need depth on D, I have been saying that he is too talented to be a 7th D-man, and we should look for something else in the trade but since he isn't much of a loss on your side since he doesn't really want to be there anyways, he wouldn't be a bad throw in from our perspective.
The only major piece you give up is Kadri, your roster remains intact and your cupboard though losing a nice piece is still pretty full. Then when you think about what Roberto will bring, he will be better their than here, he is better when he faces a ton of shots and is consistently active, he can handle the market just fine, he will bring confidence to your group and alot of other things, honestly I think it is a good deal from your side.
Nothing personal, SS, but this seems like spot cleaning for our roster, rather then filling holes. I mean this with the utmost respect to the Leafs faithful, but if this was the kind of offer we'd be dealing with, I'd rather hold on to Luongo. Kadri is about the only piece that I think would get used when everyones back, and even then that's if he makes the roster, and Franson and Bozak are likely to walk. The second is inoffensive, but I honestly don't think it holds any extra value, and I'd rather see it combined with Franson and Bozak for another piece. Dare I ask for Gunnarsson?
