Minnesota can't score goals while Toronto can't keep them out... So instead of fantasizing over an overpaid Nash that wouldn't help us keep out goals anyways, why not trade for solid young goalie? We are even overpaying IMO since Harding is a U.F.A
Minnesota has Backstrom and Hackett - and even Gustavsson would probably flourish there... There goaltending is as solid as anyone. My guess would be they would gladly give up Harding to gain a top offensive prospect like Kadri.
This is a bad deal for Minnesota - Gus and Harding are both 27 year old UFA keepers, but Harding is the better, more proven of the 2 and with the slide Minnesota's on that 1st will be a top 10 pick in one of the better 1st rounds in recent history. So Minny gives up the better goalie and a top 10 pick - no way, bad deal for the wild
Are there any Leaf fans that actually want to keep Kadri?
I want to keep Kadri. A lot of fans do too.
I'm not saying he will be a superstar, but he has very good skill and is feisty. I like his attitude, and his confidence. So far his biggest knock is that he gets pushed off the puck very, very easily.
Kadri is a keeper, but you'll see him in a lot of proposals because leaf fans like to preach patience but refuse to practise it.
