Don't worry about two phones ..
In some financial gymnastics, Kyle Dubas will navigate to the Maple Leafs roster in the coming weeks. need to do it. A phone that sits within reach of the general manager's desk may be more appropriate.
When Dubas recently changed his Twitter profile picture to one of him with a phone in both ears (during the 2019 National Hockey League draft in Vancouver) (Photographed in), GM seemed to playfully admit the work he had in front of him.
After the NHL gathered in Montreal this week for the 2022 draft, face-to-face for the first time in three years, whether or not Dubai lays the foundation for future deals. Next up is the 2022-23 course.
Those chosen by Toronto on Thursday or Friday will not be immediately affected, as Reefs holds the 25th pick in the draft and two more selections in later rounds. ..
Dubas and his staff are not only 21 goals and general energy supplied by Ilya Mikheyev last season, but also what I need to find a way to replace it. The speedy winger will bring it from next season onwards. It's clear that Reefs can't afford what could be a Mikeev price tag in the $ 5 million range per season (which may seem ridiculous). Getting something in exchange for Mikeev's rights will be a bonus even for the second half of the draft pick.
The biggest off-season goal at the Blue Line is to re-sign the restricted free agent Rasmus Sandin. Rasmus Sandin has a higher payday than what Timothy Liljegren received in his last two-year contract (average annual value of $ 1.4 million).
When Sandin resolves (given the surge in negotiations), Reefs has seven NHL defenses, so Dubas adds. It is unlikely to be considered. Depth piece or more than one.
In any case, keep us away from the group that thinks the best course of action is to trade Sandin, the pick for the first round of Reefs in 2018. Sandin's best days at the NHL are in front of him. Trading that type of possibility makes little sense, especially when remembering that it's not the entire Young Reefs Defense Corps.
Beyond Mikeev's replacement and Sandin's problems, forward groups (it's also important for Dubas to re-sign RFA's Pierre Engbal and Ondraikase) and defenses are more or less set up. looks like. You'll need cheap depth pieces in advance, but anything beyond these types of players won't fit your tight Reefs budget.
The Hart Memorial Trophy award-winning Auston Matthews, Mitch Marner, captains John Tavares, William Nylander, and Morgan Rielie need to be properly complemented, of course, by the long team. A goalkeeper who can help you make the playoffs.
If you have enough cash in your Reefs checking account, you can be assured that the goalkeeper Reefs will earn will be your bank money. increase. It's hard to understand how Dubas works, as we're spending about $ 6.4 million, including Engvall, Kase, and Sandin.
It is imperative to run Petrum Rasuk and his $ 3.8 million AAV.
Darcy Kaempfer, Ville Fusso and Marc-Andre Fleury are all enough for Reefs to finally skate after the second round. There is a possibility. But as of today, goalkeepers who can make a big difference are not affordable for Reefs. That includes Jack Campbell, who loved his time in Toronto.
Does Dubas run Justin Holl? That $ 2 million is out of the book. What about Alex Kerrfoot and his $ 3.5 million cap hit? Will Dubas be forced to move without Mrazek's taker?
Trade William Nilander at his value. It's not a chance.
Yes, yes, Dubas tries to turn Reefs into a legitimate Stanley Cup candidate and gets another shot instead of the old team. Sometimes I keep using the phone again after the defeat of the first round, I stayed shrugged again.
If that happens again in the spring of 2023, I don't know how Dubas will let another run to improve the team that summer. Hmm.
Leafs Nation will be reluctant to witness disappointment about 10 months from now, just as Lucy pulled football more than enough from Charlie Brown.
Dubas has no choice but to make the right call in the coming days or weeks.
