For me, no thank you.
I'd consider Ghost or Haag.
And I really like Kapanen, too. And I like that Kapanen would probably push Farabee back to his natural left side.
Myers is different enough from our other dmen that I don't do that.
And we don't actually need offense that badly. Sure, we're 15th in the league, so there's definitely room for improvement, but it's not an emergency.
Not a horrible thought, but for me, not Myers.
Problem is finding right-handed shooting defenseman with potential is hard to find and if you do find them you don't trade them away, so it would be a no for me when it comes to trading Myers for Kapanen (and I like Kapanen). You build your team from the goalie out and the Flyers seem to have a good one in Hart then you had Provorov, Sanhiem and Myers on D for starters and some decent forwards and go from there. The problem for the Leafs is Dubas is building from the forwards back, he's going to
Honestly, they may be better off shopping Nylander to "get what they need" and move Kapanen up into that spot.
Colour me unimpressed with Hagg. There are times, as you say, he does something. And then there are the rest of the times.
I just don't see the Leafs moving a Kapanen to get a Hagg.

Phil Myers is: 6'5', 215 lbs, a right hand shot defensman, he has some snarl to his game, he skates like a smaller man, he sees the ice very well and has an overpowering shot from the point. Guys like that don't grow on trees.
So while I love Kaspari Kapanen's X-box speed and overall skill set, he's not enough to pry Myers from my team if I'm the GM.
Rux mentioned Sanheim, again no way, Travis is starting to assert himself in the NHL t
If/when Toronto trades Nylander, the price is going to be a lot higher than Myers. I mean we need to be realistic here.
Toronto needs a #1D. Whether that comes in the form of an established veteran player with credentials or an up and coming prospect, the Leafs need major help defensively... and we have the pieces available to make it happen. If you consider that the Leafs could dangle Marner or Matthews in a trade, the sky is the limit in terms of what Toronto could get ba
