[Trade] Canucks trade Michael Carcone to Maple Leafs for Josh Leivo

Recommended Posts

The Burrows for Dahlen trade could be a candidate as well. Can't put it as a clear win until Dahlen makes the NHL but if he becomes a serviceable top 6 winger and finds magic with Petey then it would be up there for sure.

Thanks again Dubas

He was always the odd man out but I always thought he could still be a upgrade to any line-up.

His numbers vs his TOI in Toronto always showed he was possibly more than they were seeing from him.

 

Solid pick up, the kind of bottom 6 guy teams need for deep runs

Im surprised by his great hands. I thought he would play more direct power forward type but hes had some great dangles and his puck skill is quite good.

They were just too overloaded at the forward position. Sure glad we got him. 

Nickname? Leaves? Lever?

Leivo has a lot more skill than I thought. Also has more speed than I was led to believe when we first acquired him. Solid pickup.

Brian Burke's comments between periods of last night's game were priceless......to paraphrase......Leivo was drafted during Burkes time in Toronto, they really wanted him, thought all along he would be a top 6 guy. He is glad to see Leivo get out of the void in Toronto.

I found that insight from Burke to be very encouraging. You could tell that they thought he had a ton of potential when they drafted him, but he got caught in that log jam of wingers in Toronto. Skill, size and speed. Not a bad a pickup.

Toronto probably should've kept a guy with potential nickname of The Maple Leivs.

 

I bet Josh was glad to Leivo Toronto though.

"Leivo carries an excellent 53.86 Corsi For percentage through his first 24 games with the Canucks, per Natural Stat Trick, along with a Goals For percentage of 67.86. Those are much better numbers than what he had posted in 27 games with Toronto (50.0 Corsi For and 58.33 Goals For percentage)."

Looks like he was used as a shutdown guy in Toronto, with deployment similar to that of Beagle here. 34% ozone starts, 30% ozone starts last season. Looks like they put a lid on his offensive potential by playing him as a shut down guy. Makes sense why in 27 games with Toronto he has fewer points than he has goals with us in 24 games. In his time with us he has 64% ozone starts. Complete night and day change in his deployment. Not to mention playing in our top 6 pretty regularly with guys like Petey, Boeser, and Horvat.

5 of his even strength points are with EP and Brock, but he's also chipped in another 5 on 5 different lines: https://frozenpool.dobbersports.com/players/josh-leivo

 

So thats a good sign as well.

He does seem to gain instant chemistry with everyone he plays with. Kinda reminds me of Santorelli when he was with us that one season. Except Santorelli had much more dzone starts.

Sounds like we should thank the Leafs for developing the defensive awareness of Leivo.  Now we have another young player, who can score, and be responsible defensively too.

Careful, praising Toronto is grounds for being a Toronto fan if your history with Maple Leafs' chatter is consistent.
