  • Hope Smoke: Darren Dreger: “If Eric Staal is available, is that type of player the guy who entices Nonis to trade Kadri and Gardiner and whatever else for him?”
  • Hope Smoke: Dreger added that it’s possible that Islanders John Tavares could reach a point where he doesn’t want to be in New York any longer. No intel on the matter, just a feeling by Dreger. Dreger: “Rick Nash didn’t want to be the guy to come home to Toronto. Tavares is the type of guy who could handle Toronto
  • Hope Smoke: Darren Dreger: “I think one way or another Kadri or Gardiner get addressed this summer”
  • Hope Smoke: Darren Dreger: “I don’t think the Leafs pay Bolland over $5 million in the summer.”
  • Hope Smoke: Nick Kypreos: “Colorado is prepared to pay Stastny $5 million this summer. If he wants more, he’s going to go somewhere else” ….  Adrian Dater responded “the Toronto Maple Leafs”
  • Hope Smoke: Bob McKenzie: “I don’t know how the Leafs win a lottery like the Ducks did when they acquired Pronger. Those guys aren’t moved & don’t hit UFA” … “The Leafs are off to a good start in fixing their blueline with Gardiner & Rielly”
