Did not know that you could trade assets for a UFA. But I guess with Gauthier everything is possible
Yeah I knew McCabe was UFA, I was just exaggerating the seeming incompetence of his trade/signing ability.
There has not been a single contract move, trade or signing Gauthier has done this year that isn't absolutely insane.
Gomez, still in the NHL...
Spacek for Kaberle??
I mean, the discussions in Montreal have all been about lacking defensemen. IMO they just got even worse (defensively) to add an old tire (former) PP QB defenseman. Kaberle was useless at the end with the Leafs, which everyone sloughed off as him being fed up with the media and constant trade rumours. He was useless in Boston, sloughed off as him just being depth on a super amazing team full of super amazing superstars, he was useless in Carolina and yet somehow, Gauthier went after him anyways...
If Burke was dealing Spacek for Kaberle, he'd have gotten their top prospect along with it.
Ovie has broken out of his slump and Hunter will have his team taking the body at every opportunity. The left side of our defence is small and non physical and can be exploited. The key is too keep the puck in the Leaf zone and they will cough up the puck on a regular basis. Long night unless our Goaltender stands on his head.
