UFA Day Open Thread


Here we go.

David Clarkson.. Stephen Weiss.. talk of 6 million dollars a year.. Tyler Bozak and his ludicrous contract demands.. Someone hold me.

Realistically, the Leafs will not be able to upgrade at center on the recently-bought-out Mikhail Grabovski via the free agent market. Dave Nonis, hopefully, has something better than Weiss or Bozak up his sleeve via trade. That will take time, and that’s fine. I’m worried but I can wait.

I would like to see Nonis make a clever add to the defence. Rob Scuderi is an interesting possibility on the backend (one that has been discussed for weeks now). He’s a right-handed vet who logged 21 minutes a game for LA last season (23 in the playoffs). If you believe 30-minutes-ago Dreger he’s coming to the Leafs. If you believe 15-minutes-ago Dreger he’s going back to Pittsburgh.

If Clarkson can be had at a reasonable price, I’ve already talked about how he would fill a need up front. Two Mimico boys, Bolland and Clarkson, united on the Leafs, with ‘Grababvski’ sent packing – It’d be a Don Cherry wetdream.

James Mirtle says we can expect to see a few RFAs re-signed today.
