I am super tired right now so I am sorry if this seems terrible.
Toronto does this because they have a good shot at a deep playoff run this year if they fill holes.
Khabi has always been a playoff performer and would provide a ton of experience with little risk as he is a UFA this summer.
Smid will bring a ton of reliability and grit to their blueline. Belanger is a cap toss in but he is responsible defensively and wins most of his faceoffs.
Edmonton does this because we have more stay at home D than we do puck moving D. Whitney will likely be traded leaving a hole their that Potter won't be able to fill.
Grabovski gives us a talented 2-way center and with Belanger being traded we save on an amnesty buyout.
Feel free to flame it, but I do believe a deal around Smid for Gardiner makes sense for both teams.
Awful for both teams. Smid is a UFA so how would a deal around him and Gardiner make sense for Toronto? And no thanks on Grabo. Good player but to high of a cap hit for us to take when we need to sign Gagner and RNH in the coming years plus we still have Horcoff and his 5.5m cap hit.
