Be more happy if it was for a player whose name rhymes with Mickey.

#Leafs have traded Josh Leivo to the Vancouver Canucks for forward Michael Carcone.

In other news, Travis Dermott has been recalled from the Toronto Marlies.

No idea who that is. Leafs probably had to clear a little salary off because of Nylander's deal. They must've just dumped him for nothing.

Mens league is 65% dildos that just want to fight each other. I can't stand it. Unless someone really does something stupid I'm not fighting anyone ever.
- eichiefs9

Dont get me wrong its a no fight league and its not common but most guys in that game played a high level and it gets going sometimes and you know how that goes. I only hit people if they are slashing me ect non stop and the refs dont call it.

Edit ill bet you love 65% of mens league

Should be interesting to see what happens with Toronto and their cap situation. Now that they have Snake and Will signed for 18 mill a year. They have Matthews, Marner, and Kap as UFA this summer. Kadri is another 4mill, Reilly and Zait are 9.5 mill. Anderson 5 mill. I really really really want someone to offer sheet a few of their guys.

Random observation...BPort's best looking line lately has been Dal Colle-Koivula-Ho-Sang. I'm pretty sure Koivula's always been a winger, so it's interesting he's getting time at center and also looking pretty damn good there. Given the lack of center depth in the system, it could be a smart move converting him if he keeps developing the way he's been this season.

I have a strong feeling Koivula doesn't have the footspeed/skating to be a center in the NHL, but it doesn't hurt to give him some reps there. He's adapted well to NA after a down year last year that followed his RoY season in Finland. Huge winger that can maybe be a middle-6 guy that can score would be very much welcomed.

I didn't know anything about him until seeing him this season. He's been a good player so far...at least at the AHL level. Smart with good hands, and usually where he should be on the ice. It seems like he's kind of a calming presence on that line to balance out the more frantic Ho-Sang.

Anyway, yeah, he doesn't really have blazing speed, which probably hurts his chances of being a center in the NHL, but at the lower level, for a guy still adjusting to NA and now a whole new position, he doesn't look overwhelmed or unsure of himself at all.

Just please give him a better look than MDC got. No more sitting guys in the pressbox first and putting them on the 4th line for 5 minutes.

He's gonna probably have at least another season in the AHL before they even think about calling him up. Especially with the coaching staff/mgmt in place here now.
