It's not everyday a player at JT's caliber comes along and wants to play on your team enough to leave upwards of $14M on the table. Let him go and shop defense? lol Tavaras with Marner & Matthews with Nylander...Ohhh yeah!

Matthews Tavares Kadri down the middle isn't a bad problem to have. The Leafs think they can fill the defensive void internally with players they are developing in the AHL. Also there was not a big UFA defensive defenseman on the table July 1st. 

 

A Babcock quote from 2015 on the day he was hired:  "Once we make it safe, they’re coming home. Mark my words, they’ll be coming.” - Speaking about Ontario born players.
