No, the Leafss don't acquire Bennett for Engvall and a 3rd. That is not even close.
I don't think the Preds would do that one either.

Panthers are trying to open up cap space to bring Anthony Duclair off IR.
They are not particularly interested in taking back salary.
So it may take more than a 3rd round pick to peek their interest.
I think Bennett would be a good fit if something can be worked out as he can play LR and C.

The Nashville deal I would do in a heartbeat if the Preds are interested.

Bennett would be a good addition I think but the return for him is laughable. Engvall is a sad hockey player to beging with and throw in the fact hes a pending UFA double whammy and a 3rd ( which will be either the 72 or 94 pick) as they have two there . Bennett 26 signed for 2 more years at 4.425M per. UM YEAh hes gonna be commanding a lot more than that from the leafs. Alot more.
But I do like the player.

The Nashville deal I love the Tanner acqusition but would steer clear of Ekholm. hes 32 Big D man at 6'4 but plays a timid game. 6.25M per until 2026 when he will be 36. Kind of steep now and then for a type of defender they already have to may of.
Now that being said I am in favor of ridding Rielly and hos contract. I didnt mind Rielly at his old contract . His short comings were reflected in his salart. Now that hes got his $$ is got worse. Leafs cant have an offensive d man making 7.5M per with 0 goals.

Why is it assumed that the Panthers will make Bennett available so they can activate DuClair? Personally, I would rather have Bennett. If they do move Bennett, I would think it is for a cheap high end NHL ready prospect or something like Holmberg and a 1st. Dubas missed his chance to get Bennett relatively cheap when Calgary made him available.

Leafs could have had Bennett instead of Foligno but Dubas blew it.
A 1st and a 4th to CBJ’s for Foligno instead of a 2nd and a prospect to Calgary for Bennett.
The choice should have been obvious!
