And for people bringing up Kadri's SH%, keep in mind his ATOI is 16 minutes a night, with limited special teams time. Normalize that, and this "aberration" is more than mitigated.

Leafs can do better if they ever dangle Kadri, and that won't happen anytime soon.
Bogosian is a 6'3" 220 pound, physical, all situations shut down defender who gets the brutal match ups night in and night out and still puts up between .43 to .46 PPG average over the past two seasons which is 34 to 38 points over 82 games (Brent Seabrook levels). In my opinion he is our # 1 defensman and he is 22 which is the same age as Kadri.

The trade doesn't seem to work for either team.
