More on Leipsic:

One year remaining on his contract, not two like I originally posted.

He will still be RFA.

A prolific scorer in junior.

A high scorer in AHL.

Struggled to get points in NHL.

Clocks in at 5'10.

Lost to Vegas in expansion draft.

Former Portland Winterhawk.

Plays with an edge to his game, a rat type player.

He is a yapper ala Burrows.

Plays with a chippy, chirping, irritating edge and draws a lot of penalties.

Once got a misconduct for stopping by the opposing goalies net, pick up the water bottle and took a drink, causing on ice chaos.

Requires waivers to be sent to Utica.

Kills penalties.

Speedy.

Canucks have been interested in him since he was a Leaf.

Liking that Leipsic is a speedy, two-way checker and plays like a good shit disturber, sounds like a Dorsett in the making but with more scoring potential.

Slap him with Sutter and Virtanen.
A long time ago, a baseball player remarked: "If I owned a ballclub, I'd hire a $5,000 coach and a $15,000 scout."

There goes Kane.

Off to the Sharks for a return to be announced.

E. Kane to SJS.

To Buffalo a conditional 2019 1st, a conditional 2020 4th and prospect forward Dan O'Reagan. Not bad for a soon to be UFA.

I'd say more like a Burrows type rather than Dorsett. Dorsett has balls and will fight pretty well anyone and stick up for teammates. Leipsic is more like a Burrows shit disturber.

For two reasons. One obvious we don't want SJS to win anything. Second, if they disappear you gotta think some of those conditional picks will be based on how SJS does going forward, maybe even if the re-sign Kane. Lessens the return to Buffalo.

Here are the details:
Pierre LeBrun‏@PierreVLeBrun

Here's the condition of the first-round 2019 pick in the Evander Kane deal: if the Sharks re-sign Kane, it's a first; but if Kane walks into free agency, it's a second-round pick in 2019

Why not take a 4th or 5th ? You are already doing CBJ a favour by taking Jokinnen. Makes little sense. Both these little guys acquired today have to clear waivers next year.

Garbage out and garbage in I guess
