<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Claesson4Norris</b></div><div>That's been a big if the last few years....
But when he is playing, he's looked great though. He's skating well, backchecking really hard, and his vision and passing abilities are really translating well to the NHL. At least once a game he makes a pass that makes me jump off the couch. Only three assists, but he could easily have added a few goals as well. He's flubbed a couple of wide open nets.
I've always been in on Brown's skills, but I wasn't sure it was ever going to translate. This as been a really promising start. If he can find a role for himself as a top line center, even if it's more of a "Kyle Turris 1b" situation, that would be huge for the organization.</div></div>
Honestly, I didn't realize how good his visions and hands were until this year. I now see why Ottawa Front office have high hopes for him. He's got the tools to be a great, even maybe an Elite Center in the league (Especially with his size). It's just hard to develop when you're sitting on IR.
The Ideal situation would be to have Brown and the "2020 1st round pick" has your 1a+b, Norris or white has your 3rd line center and pageau has your pk1 / shut down guy / 4th line center.
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>MG1986</b></div><div>It is my understanding that it is a NTC, not a NMC, meaning that waiver process/mechanic would still work for someone 35+ in it's normal fashion. So if the Leafs waived Spezza, I believe that any team could put a claim in for him and he would have to accept that assignment. If that player refused to assignment, his contract would be terminated, and the team that waived would suffer the entire hit of that AAV for the seasons remaining on the deal. So, in the case of Patrick Marleau. Say he was waived, but he either did want to accept the assignment to the Marlies, or did not want to go a team that put in a waiver claim, his contract could get terminated, but the Leafs would be hit with his entire AAV for the years remaining on his deal, so something like $6.25 million against the cap.
That is at least how I understand the process to work with 35+ players.</div></div>
Thanks for the insight
