O'Byrne has been on the ice for more goals against than anyone on the team this year. Varlamov and Giguere are probably the happiest to see him gone.

That being said, behind a decent system, he probably will be better. He needs to play with a puck mover. He has no puck skills at all.

Komi is injured, isn't he?

Not a bad deal for either team. Good trade. Avs get something for a UFA and Leafs get a decent bottom-pairing defenseman and PK'er.

Not bad.

The Leafs got better.

Komi just bought a better cushion.

Hate this move. Very underwhelming and I expected better from Nonis.

I'm hoping a conditional 7th. Condition is he doesn't play, we keep our 7th.
Its a 4th.

Is he? I don't really know much about him other than what they showed haha.

As long as Carlyle keeps his minutes sheltered, should be a decent move. Glad Nonis kept it simple today.

Franson says hi.

Whatever trade to me, don't really care.

He really can't look much sillier than Holzer.

Leafs don't really need to add much. They're fine just doing nothing today.

We're not Cup contenders.

We got a fourth for him? O'Byrne had epitomized "pylon" this year. Whether it's just a lack of effort or a failure to mesh with Sacco's [lack of a] system, he's been bad.

Komisarek is a million times tougher than O'Byrne. No comparison.

Our PK doesn't need help. This is a depth move in case of injuries. Fraser-Franson won't be replaced as our 3rd pairing.

Good ****ing riddance! Anyone who thinks he's been even decent this year should read out GDT's. He's been beyond terrible after he was pretty good in 11/12.

a 4th is nothing to lose over for a decent #6, guys. Calm down!!!

At least, this probably means no Kostka in the kine-up.

Hooray!!1

Sweet pick up. Just depth.

He'll rotate in and out with Kostka.
