Not official yet but Darren Dreger has stated that Kings forward Toffoli has been dealt to the Canucks, all players/picks going both ways to be announced within the hour.
Great add for the Canucks who are one of the leagues top surprises this year.
IDK, yes the Devils got a first and a recent first round pick in Foote but Coleman will likely end up at or near 30 goals for the year, plays a heavy game, and makes 1.8 million for this year and next. With a hard cap, it is a certainty that one or more of Gourde, Palat or Killorn will be gone, Coleman steps into a middle six role as a solid defensive forward who will be around awhile.
