I think Michalek is the best gain for the Leafs out of that. Solid player. Plus not being on the hook for Phaneuf's salary.

I know Im in the minority but I don’t like it. Some trash players and a pick for a top 2 dman which cripples an already weak team. Plus the salary in is basically the same as the salary out. I get that they think they have a chance at Stamkos but what star player in their right mind would sign a contract with this Leafs team? 1 good dman, 2-3 decent forwards, over a dozen pending UFAs. If I were Stammer I would stick with a Cup contender and not sign with a team that might make the playoffs in 10 years.

I think the thing lost in all this is Cowen. I believe he is going to be a good solid defenseman for years to come. Is he a #2 dman like Captain Crunch? Not in your dreams, but he is going to be a solid man you can depend on. Phaneuf has looked like a pylon for most of his years in Toronto and that horrible contract he had was horrible. Now Ottawa is going to have to give Karlsson a raise cause you can't have Phaneuf making more then that. As for Stammer, I don't think Toronto was ever going to get him and if they do or if they had a chance, it goes out the window with the coach. If you look at Babcock teams of the past, no one player was a stand out player or bonafide #1 player. He has always had great all around players on his team and a number of them that could be considered equal to each other.

On the flip side, do you think this is Ottawa's way of trying to keep Karlsson happy or, do you think this might be them gearing up to lose him?

I honestly hope Ottawa keeps Karlsson he is a good d-man that can score some points.
