Give Lehtonen a few weeks because yes he is better then both Sandin and dermott and should be playing in the top 6. So

2022 2nd

Johnson (50% retained)
2021 4th

Get Johnson back and then the lines look like this.
Hyman Matthews Marner
Johnson Tavares Nylander
Roberson Kerfoot Mikheyev
Thornton Spezza Simmonds

Riley Brodie
Muzzin Holl
Lehtonen Bogosian

If u need to improve defence depth u have options. Picks, prospects also Veesy can be traded and Petan we can easily acquire a 7th d for cheap to ply with Sandin

Agree0 Disagree2

I have seen zero evidence that he is better than both Dermott and Sandin lol. That is such a knee jerk reaction of a comment.

I agree he has looked good. He also hasn't PLAYED A GAME.

Also why trade hutch? We have to carry 3 goalies anyways and we can expose him to Seattle. Dermott also probably has equal value to Johnsson with more potential, so giving up a starting goalie and the higher pick seems bizarre to have them retain 1.75.

Anderson is underrated and most just saw Johnson as a cap dump. Leafs could have just taken a 3rd or 4th, but they wanted Anderson as he is a player who can likely give you similar production as Johnson would have on a 3rd line. Just my opinion, but we don't need Johnson back.

If johnsson got leafs Anderson then Anderson gets leafs johnsson which means

dermott hutch and a 2nd for 3 years of 50% retain@1.75 and a 4th., seems a tad steep.

Misread it as Andersen.

12 Jan 2021 14:26:58
Anderson is so young and is a leader at every level
he goes to. Solid team guy. Very mature and well liked.

12 Jan 2021 15:17:04
I agree on Anderson Craigger. You know the background of these guys better, but I think the leafs see him as a Hyman lite on 3rd line duty eventually. Good skater, good motor, leads by example and has some skill. I think he can kill penalties as well. No?

Took on the PK role at 2017 jrs for USA and they won gold. Did same in 2018 as captain and got bronze.

Great team player all around even has 2 university frozen 4 titles to his name. You want character you got it with him.

Thanks. I liked the trade from day 1. To me, it is like getting a similar player to Johnson, but for much less and a bit younger with a slightly different skill set. We bought some time and cap space without really losing anything talent wise. Better than a pick in my opinion.

I disagree RLF. Sorry man. But we can’t possibly agree on everything.

It absolutely was a cap dump.

Jersey didn’t give Toronto a pick because they suck. They want to hoard their picks for themselves. So they gave Toronto a guy they basically have given up on.

I could easily be wrong and Anderson turns into the next Zach Hyman.

But I’m not holding my breath on that one.

@HL. No we can't. Kind of weird if we did. lol

Dump of cap space yes. But I do believe we will see Anderson in a Leaf uniform at some point. Leafs immediately extended him for 3 years at .750M. Looks like an intended 4th liner at the worst.
Anderson already has 52 NHL games in. Put up 34 in 44 games in the AHL before being called up last year where he had 6 in 18 games playing 3rd/ 4th line duty while spending 64% of his starts in the D-zone. Is even pretty good on the dot when needed.

You may be right, but I think he sees icetime next season likely.

I like Joey Anderson as well. He has a serious shot at being at least a bottom 6 guy. Would like to see more of him.
