Big, big day yesterday, with four trades going down. Let's recap:
San Jose Sharks get:
2017 6th round pick
Arizona Coyotes get:
2016 4th round pick
2017 3rd round pick
Leafs Impact: None
Nashville Predators get:
2016 3rd round pick
Buffalo Sabres get:
Rights to pending UFA Jimmy Vesey
Leafs Impact: The Maple Leafs were looking into signing the younger Vesey brother. They'vbe drafted Nolan Vesey and their father works as a scout for the Leafs. What we have here is a potential for another Babcock situation, and dear lord I want to make Mike Harrington drive to Toronto to cry again. Vesey has already come out and stated he's going to test free agency, but this gives the Sabres more wooing time.
New York Rangers get:
2016 6th round pick
2017 4th round pick (if Yandle signs)
Florida Panthers get:
Rights to pending UFA Keith Yandle
Leafs Impact: A division rival may get stronger on the blueline, and no one wants that.
Anaheim Ducks get:
2016 1st round pick
2017 2nd round pick
Toronto Maple Leafs get:
Frederik Anderson, who was a pending UFA but signed a 5 year deal with the Leafs right after the trade.
Toronto Maple Leafs: Situation Update After Andersen - Editor in Leaf
Leafs Impact: KINDA HUGE
We have stability in goal, and our goalie to protect in the upcoming expansion draft. New goalie! Woo!
Enjoy your day folks, don't panic, and if you feel like panicking, just suck on your towel, the other end is anti-depressants.
