So it's a trade off of having a impact player for the next 4-5 years or waiting to see if Toffoli becomes an impact player of Moulson's caliber in 3 or 4 years.
I don't know how much weight that holds. If we're going to assume he loves LA enough to re-sign, we'd also have to assume he'd sign in LA anyway. That said, trading for him would give LA the head start and it would eliminate the possibility that Matt plays for four teams (NYI, BUF, rental team, free agent team) within a calendar year.
