We aren't a lock for the playoffs. Downgrading from MacArthur and Bozak to Colborne and Ashton is a good way to drop out of the playoffs.

Seriously?

What exactly do you think Bozak and Mac add to a team that is looking for playoff run?
Size?
Experience?
Grit?
Offense?

What is it that a contending team gets from these rentals that they would be willing part with a high draft choice?

F#@* Bozak and his stone hands!

If we can get a 1st for him it would be a dream come true!!!!!

NOT ONLY for the 1st!!! Kadri is a HUGE upgrade over him in the 1 spot and Grabo thrives in the 2 spot. McClement will be a great shutdown guy in the 3 spot!!!

WIN WIN

Can you imagine? He might as well put on his scout pants and go catch up with BB.

Actually, moving Boz out of the way and giving more icetime to Kadri is a good thing.

Got it, the same kind of self serving GM decision making we saw in years past.
Agreed.

The thing is we are a better team without him anyways...

Picks or a top prospect would just be a cherry on top

I'm fine with keeping Bozak but honestly people think the Leafs making or not making the playoffs is determined by Mac?

I'd move Mac and Gunnar at the least considering the market

Everyone knows it you that's talking out of the hat. You must have an orgasm for every draft/prospect pick we acquire.

You just posted this but on the other hand deem them far to valuable for us to move because we are trying to squeak in? WOW!

We did do it once or twice!

It got us Lupul, Gardiner, Biggs, Liles, and Colborne when we sold Kaberle/Beauchemin, two guys not in the longterm plans.

But hey, selling never gets you anything! We should just hold onto everybody on our current team, because they're clearly great and all going to be part of our longterm core! ....

It's a very good draft, and selling prices are higher than they typically are. Of all the years to sell, this would be a good one. Anyways, I don't expect that Nonis will sell, too much pressure from fans/ownership to make the playoffs.

So, Kadri plays with Kessel? They've hardly ever played together and if that duo fails, who plays with Kessel? Colborne? McClement?

I would be fine with signing Mac. He is a good utility guy and chips in, in all 3 zones.

As for Bozak... Move him NOW sell high NOW!!!

The guy stinks and is holding back Grabo and most of all Kadri.

TBH he isn't any better than McClement.

Teams let UFAs walk every year. It happens, not the end of the world.

Playoffs > draft picks.

You can't see the value in having Kadri and Kessel on separate lines? You want to put them together so Chara can be on the ice for our 2 best offensive players?

Depth wins games, one line teams(Tampa Bay) go nowhere.
