Report: Tyson Barrie Done In Toronto.

Published April 16, 2020 at 9:27

Putting together the Toronto Maple Leafs 2020-21 roster is going to be a bit of a puzzle for general manager Kyle Dubas. While the majority of the roster is set with the Leafs' top 6 and goalie situation locked up, Dubas will have to plug in the bottom 6 along while putting together a formula for a revamped blueline. We learned recently that the Leafs will likely move forward Kasperi Kapanen to try and land a defenseman, now we know that one blueliner from the current roster is pretty much 100% gone. After Jonas Siegal and James Mirtle of the Athletic spoke on Kapanen, the duo also believe that defenseman Tyson Barrie's time in Toronto is done. Here's what the duo had to say about Barrie:"The Leafs be challenged to make room for his next contract, but it's also hard to make a case why they should even consider it. Barrie doesn't bring what's needed on the right side, and that's a much sturdier defensive presence who can hang tough with dangerous players in a playoff series. We're looking at a (very) likely one-and-done here."
Do you think there's any scenario where the Leafs try and keep Barrie around?
