Stars acquire Connor Carrick

Postby Troy McClure » Mon Oct 01, 2018 2:30 pm

The Leafs were going to put their extra body d-man on waivers, but Nill stepped in and offered a conditional 7th rounder to get him. Connor Carrick is now a Dallas Star. If he plays over 50 games, the pick ratchets up to a 6th rounder.

This move allows Nill to get back to carrying 8 d on the NHL roster.

Bad trade. That 7th round pick’s potential is unmeasurable.

Also... who looked at the Leafs last year and thought stealing their #6 and #7 d-men would be a way to improve your own defense? Other than Nill, I mean.

Why did we sign Polak again?

Carrick is insurance? Johns has an injury. Small puck mover with a few more NHL games under his belt. Young, 24. 1.3 million cap hit. That’s a bit. Interesting.

LOL Carrick is what Leaf fans kept trying to give Vancouver for Tanev in all those HF trade proposal threads.

Nill is gonna Nill, but I do think that Carrick is a better option than Polak and Bayreuther.

I'm sure he is. Which is why the Polak signing was terrible.

Polak was this off-season’s Hanzal.

And this off-season’s Radulov was umm ... umm ... Heiskanen?

With Carrick and Polak’s contracts it really looks like we’ll be once again officially rolling with 8 D when Johns gets back. *Dang all Get out*, Nill.

Heiskanen will have busted and been sent down to the AHL by the time Johns is healthy, so I don’t think there will be an issue.

That doesn't bother me very much with sitting two spares regularly. It was a terrible idea with Nemeth and Oleksiak because they needed playing time to see if there were good, meh, should be traded, to pump up their trade value, whatever. Polak is what he is, and Carrick is too, to a large degree. So rolling with 8 defensemen in this situation may not be as bad. It also means they don't have spare forwards sitting around, so it may force them to play the younger guys.
