Nolan is gone. No longer a Leaf. He will not count against the cap. At all.

Here's his profil from TSN.ca

http://tsn.ca/nhl/teams/player_bio.a...06&hubName=STL

Puck moving defenseman. I'm glad we picked one up because Kaberle's the only reliable D-man we have for outlet passes however at $1.25 million, I think JFJ might have coughed up too much for him.

The PA will always say Nolan is on the team until the matter is resolved thru legal means.

This doen't mean anything in regards to Klee or Cola, you need more than 6 defensemen.

I was under the impression St. Louis had Khavanov under contract?
So did we trade for him, or was he an UFA?

I don't mind Khavanov, I'm not too fond of the contract however. I'm not sure he's worth more then 1M. If I recall correctly he made around 1.25M with St. Louis pre-lockout.

He's decent enough offensively from what I've seen, and generally positionally reliable in the defensive zone defensively. About as soft as can be though, and he doesn't always play hard.
Probably a #5 guy.

Such is my brief observations, but I'm obviously not a St. Louis fan so I haven't seen him play much more then a dozen times on TV over the last few years.

Yep, not too thrilled with his price tag. He made about the same last year...could have at least offered him his 03 salary rolled back.

I think 02/03 was the year pronger missed the entire season or at least most of it with his wrist situation.He may have come back just in time for the playoffs.

Theres no way the Leafs are going to get rid of Klee if they sign this guy. Actually he would probably be Klee's partner with Klee playing in a similar role like he did with Gonchar. Khavanov is an offensive defencemen with defensive issues.

I think, more than anything, I'm irritated with the fact that he's soft. He's a second pairing guy, though, from all that I've heard. I'd have preferred Salvadore, but oh well.

Just a theory I found laying in my underwear, but...what do McCabe, Khavanov, Colaiacovo and Pilar all have in common?

Yes, they are D men who can put up some points.

Maybe Kaberle's agent has expressed a lack of desire to sign a long term contract?

Kaberle is a very tradeable commodity. Expendable?

Perhaps in a trade for Witt, but with Witt's age an contract situation, I'd be extremely dissapointed if that happened.

I know nothing about this guy other than what I read on the nhlpa site, but i find it funny how a guy who was 2nd on his team in hits is soft. That tells me he has no problem throwing his body around.

Seems like a bad time to trade Kaberle after an off-season by his standards., he's still young and with room to improve further and despite his poor reputation for being soft is seldom caught out of position defensively.
Besides, I'd much rather deal McCabe. Older, and incomprehensibly inconsistent. McCabe is as like to get 20pts as he is 50.
After finishing 4th in Norris voting in the last NHL season he might have decent value as well.

McCabe adds physicality though, something the Leaf D is lacking... I'm not altogether sure we should deal any of our D-Man unless we get a very enticing offer.

or Sportsnet"

I would keep Kaberle over McCabe too. But, who knows what the agents are saying about their RFA clients? Also, if Khavanov is soft, and you trade McCabe then Quinn has got a girl's choir back there.

I actually like the signing... if its true. He's big... maybe not physical but still a big body who can move, he's no pilon or breezeby... he's got good offensive tools and could be paired up with klee who should carry the defensive aspect more than he did last year.

Should work out!!!

I like Khavanov but that seems like a lot of money and doesn't really address a need.

I guess to judge this signing we'll have to see what else Ferguson is planning, but on it's own I'm not too crazy about this move.
