Oh you mean that purge where he wiped out our entire LHD in one go to be replaced with the mighty Karl Alzner! that poor guy never had a chance here trying to replace Marky Emelin and Beulieu in one go! what a stupid off season that was and to give Radulov the run around too. killed our D and our most dangerous forward at the time too on pride! MB should have been gone right there!

Agreed. He should have been fired.  I think there were a couple other Russians let go that season as well.

I wonder how much offence was stifled in LA the way he played in Vancover and now here he seems to be an easy 30 goal man with plenty more upside. this was a good signing for us!

Kinda flew under the radar. He's been a great signing for us. Coulda had the winner tonight on that breakaway.

I mean he had a 30 goal, and  (almost) 60 point season in LA - and he mostly averaged 20g per year playing a little different role there. I know he played with Carter a lot and Lucic for a bit... I think luck played a bit of a role but I agree, he seems to have found a different gear since being traded to the Canucks.  I know they regret not re-signing him but the team is having some major cash flow problems so i guess it probably wasnt a real possibility.

Fun read indeed, thanks for sharing! Some interesting bits about how he sees Suzuki and Caufield.

He's such a straight shooter. I love the candor of things like:

"and here’s the funny thing about what happened next. When I was with the Canucks, I had been watching a lot of games during my time in the bubble in Edmonton  because there wasn’t a whole to do  and one of the guys who kept catching my eye? Nick Suzuki. I’m serious. I didn’t get to see a whole lot of him while I was playing on the West Coast. But watching him against the Pens … I was just like, Man, I want to play on this guy’s line one day."

Yeah, that part I found really interesting as well. Also the part about Caufield being special and having the 'it' factor. I mean Toffoli has had some pretty good teammates in LA over the years, statements like that coming from a guy with a lot of experience playing on a winning team are quite the endorsement I'd say.

One of the best deals in the NHL, IMO. Dude scored us 28 in the regular season and continues to chug along with 12 points in 13 post-season games.

100% if MB can pull off one like this for a puck moving D man we will be in much better shape! Tofu has been great for us especially since Tuna has been really soft this year Tofu took over his offensive side and he is much better on the defense side too.

And on a good friendly contract during his prime years.  Total win.

Its funny, about 3 or 4 years ago there were tons of rumours we were trying to nab him from LA. Makes you wonder if MB was actually trying to & it took this long to finally snag him.

He was definitely one of the better wingers available but top 4 PMD are very very rarely available as UFAs.  Dougie Hamllton deserves a very long look, despite him being RHD.
