I'm not going to go over specfics of how we could have afforded him because I am not going to track down those roster moves again. However, I (and someone else, Snark I think?) went over the numbers in specific detail that season and it was close. With a few small maneuvers it ended up being something like 750k difference? Yes Beauchemin did struggle there in Toronto. However, he struggled the entire time he was there. I think it was more based on Wilson's system rather than health, but obviously that's pure speculation on my part. I'm taking into fact that he played well pretty quickly upon returning here.

Becoming more offensive is fine, but you don't create a giant hole in your top 4 to do so. That's asinine. Sutton's issue was definitely not just system. Did he fall off? Or did he just simply revert back to what he had been his entire career with the exception of that playoff run, a bottom pairing defenseman? IMO you judge a guy based on what he's done most of his career, not one playoff run.

I don't know how you place him 8th. He'll be back up soon. Regardless though, he's still a terrific prospect, that could of in the very least fetched us a bigger piece.

Most Leaf fans here are clueless. I don't judge any Leaf player based on their comments, because there's too many clueless ones.
