Its really simple

given that he knows what they want , can we afford them going forward.

do we lose them for nothing or trade them and get something back with the
chance if we trade them we miss the playoffs.

Pretty thin line to walk if you ask me.
very intelligent post, and perfect example of how being an NHL GM is allot like being between a rock and a hard place. Nonis has an obligation to continue improving the Leaf long term, no matter what, keeping the focus on the future only. Any short term success is a added bonus, but cannot be the primary objective.
