    Great pickup imo

    • Komas Taberle

      ConnorCrisp Great pick up, put him and Granberg in the 5- 6 spots and trade Liles.

      • Great Dane

        Komas Taberle ConnorCrisp  That sounds like a plan add blacker and the bottom pairings are done

  • 4evrblue

    Looks like a guy thats worth taking a shot on. Only 24 and nearly a PPG in the AHL. Good size to boot. I like it.

      Soft D is never good

    • newkb

      Way to go Nonis….mediocre team over the cap! Great job!

  • Ze_theLeafsFan

    I don’t think he solves any of our problems in the D zone. it’s a good pickup nonetheless. I guess this means bye bye to Fraser, ROB and Thor

    • ConnorCrisp

      Ze_theLeafsFan or at least pressbox competition for fraser

  • Ze_theLeafsFan

    Eakins is taking all the Marlies veteran players. Best of luck Hammy

        • WendelGilmour

          ingy56 daniel marois Ze_theLeafsFan The Marlies will be a team loaded with kid, and few vets. Lots of ice time for the youngsters.

  • flappypaddle

    Its not possibl to hate this move. Wish he shot right but ohwell another solid puck mover.

  • moimoi

    Good depth signing. Improvement on Kostka in my mind.

  • daniel marois

    • TOHockeyNut
