“Can the Maple Leafs Address Their Weaknesses Before the NHL Trade Deadline?”
Only if they’re prepared to relinquish someone significant AND with a significant cap hit to free up the necessary space. That’s one reason why names like Bracco and Lilegren won’t do it on their own.
Toronto offering Johnsson and Bracco for Adam Larsson but sources say Holland would rather see Kapanen as the forward in that deal. Veteran right shot Swedish defenseman to mentor Sandin and Liljgegren. Any truth to it? Who knows. But it sounds like a good fit for both sides.
Too much for Larsson. No thanks.
Mitch Marner or John Tavares contracts for starters !!
Leafs lack of defense !!
Leafs drafts !!
General manager !!
Cap space is not a problem. They can dump ceci with a pick easy enough to free up 4.5 M
