Just sign Bogosian and carry on.  Then sign Tryamkin and move on.  No need to go all in for Barrie unless the price is lower.

 

Does this make the Leafs sellers?  That would be such great news.

Bogo is going to Tampa.

 

Im all for bringing Tryamkin back but that might be a little trickier.

I really don’t get these rumours. Toronto is a playoff team and while Barrie isn’t the greatest at defence he still plays around 20 minutes for them a night and is a 40 to 50 point dman. To get that away from a playoff team is gonna take an overpayment and Barrie as a whole and an upcoming ufa just isn’t worth it for a team like Vancouver.

Rumour is sign and trade with Vancouver so he wouldn't be a UFA.

Toronto loses him in free agency no matter what.

Would Barrie have any interest in signing with Vancouver? Yes, hometown boy and a young talented team about to enter a cup window.

Would he play better with us? I think so, but it's a risk.

 

Overall, Toronto may end up taking what they can get, otherwise they lose him for nothing.

Considering they gave up Kadri for him, it doesn't look good for their GM.

Okay this does change things my apologies. Didn’t know the sign and trade was the actual rumour. However they’re gonna want a 20 minute replacement and he’s gonna come by the name of Chris Tanev. I don’t know if Stecher + will cut it for them.

You had me till you said Toronto is a playoff team. Lol.

I really like barrie personally but the asking price is huge I say Benning should wait them out till the final minutes and if it doesn't happen then oh well.

At this point I’m thinking they’re just looking for a shakeup even if the player returned is not as good.

When you are a playoff team with expectations losing players to free agency is the breaks. You can’t rebuild and compete at the same time.

Saw this on Twitter for what its worth but can't upload on here right now for some reason

 

Since Babcock was fired Barrie has 5 goals and 23 assists in 39 games. Thats .71PTS per game. Over 82 games thats a pace for 58 PTS.

They aren't getting that type of return for us. 

That’s why the offer from us would likely be Juolevi, Stecher and a conditional pick for Barrie (the condition being whether he re-signs)

I haven't heard that rumour from the insiders more from the fans. Unless I missed something?

Honestly, I'd be good with this being a 1 for 1 trade. My issue is the fact that should we trade Stetcher, it leaves us vulnerable on the right side. We all know how Tanev gets hurt. Right now Myers has helped share that load along with Stetcher, but if we slot Barrie in there and he can't handle the hard minutes, it will lead to Tanev and Myers getting those minutes and THAT will lead to injuries. I'm good for upgrading Stetcher by adding a prospect or pick, but I definitely don't wanna be boosting one thing by lessening the other. Our defense isn't THAT deep. We just got these guys to a place where they aren't getting over played!!!

they can't close out tough games. I saw one rumour on the tweety that involved Sutter + Stecher for Barrie.

Rather try to sell them on Sutter being a defensive forward and Stecher.

 

Retain salary if you have to. Get a young asset pick/prospect out of them.

Rumor has it that Benning is talking to Barrie's agent.

Could be a sign and trade in the works.

Rick Dhaliwal just tweeted that there hasn't been any extension talks with Barrie's camp.

 

That should end that rumour

Toronto definitely needs help now, they don't need picks/prospects, so I'd say there's no chance we see another Madden scenario.

If anything some lower tier prospects/picks to round out the deal.

A Sutter + Stecher trade makes the most sense to me.

I'd much rather it not be a sign and trade tbh. No idea how our cap situation works if the plan is to sign both Bear-not-cheese and Sticky Toffee.
