[3-Way Trade] Maple Leafs acquire Nick Folingo, Stefan Noesen; Blue Jackets acquire 2021 1st-round pick (TOR), 2022 4th-round pick (TOR); Sharks acquire 2021 4th-round pick (TOR)

Damn, Foligno is basically Captain Blue Jackets. He's the closest equivalenty they've had in their franchise to a Trevor Linden or Wendel Clark or Ryan Smyth. I wouldn't be surprised if he re-signs with CBJ after that.

Well some owners are willing to spend a little jingle to buy 4th round picks.

it is a pretty iffy lottery ticket though, a 3rd has a pretty decent chance of becoming an NHLer... once you get to a late 4th, that is just a long shot.

On the other hand, those kind of picks might be exactly what is used as currency to pick up players who can’t be protected in expansion.

Leafs address their AHL quality blueline by bringing in another forward.  He's a good player, but he won't be able to save the Leafs from getting destroyed in the first round yet again.

Thanks to JB we ain't got the cap space to even buy a 7th round pick... for the next 3 years or more!

Another smart 3 way move to dump cap so he's basically free for Toronto but costs them a 1st and 4th - way too much for Foligno. Yes, he plays big minutes in Columbus but his offence has dried right up. 

 

Toronto overpays but they need a guy like him to anchor their depth/bottom 6 forwards.

pretty useful veteran for that price, that's a nice deal for Doobie. 

 

But thats also a lot to pay for a 4th round pick. The Sharts must have lowballed Yzerman on this one.
