Now that the season is over, it's time to start looking at the first move the Leafs should make this offseason:  Finding a new GM. 

 

With all due respect to Dubas, his biggest claim to fame is drafting Matthews at #1 with the lottery pick, and everyone was saying he should draft Matthews #1.

 

Has there been a noteworthy trade or acquisition that Dubas has made to improve the Leafs since then?

Comment: The conditional third rounder in 2021 becomes a 2nd round pick if either Clifford re-signs with the Leafs OR Campbell wins a certain amount of games. Kings are guaranteed at least the 3rd Rd pick if neither of those conditions are met.

I'm going to say Jack Campbell and Jack Muzzin might be the only good trade acquisitions.  Am I missing anyone?

 

Look at the list of "nothing" trades above.  Those are the kinds of deals that squander Stanley Cups when a team's "Cup window" is open to win now.

I'm thinking that Dubas didn't have enough experience or hockey knowledge to know what it takes to build a contender. Talent is fun, signing young stars to big $$, but comes playoff time, it gets tougher. Size and grit is less sexy to and doesn't lead to being super popular, but in the end, it's about team success and less about star power. Ask the Oilers. A team like the Blues won without a true Superstar, although O'Reilly and Binnington did elevate the team.  We'll see what Campbell offers them as goaltending, beginning the season as the starter in net. Anyway, I think that all that I've just said has been repeated many times, so it's nothing new. How will that defense do? we'll see.
