    Maple Leafs acquire Campbell and Clifford from Kings for Moore, picks - Sportsnet.ca

    Sort of surprised by the Campbell move. I would imagine Cal Peterson and Seattle expansion team looming had to do with the reasoning behind moving him.

    Always loved Clifford, and forever grateful for his effort in getting two cups. He's a UFA this summer, along some others, so I get it. Need to keep getting younger and open spots for young guys going forward.

    I am okay with it. I like them both but its time to move on. Both picks coming to the Kings are conditional. So, if Cliffy resigns with the Leafs the pick turns into a second round. Also, if Soupy wins 6 games this season the pick for him becomes a second round.
    Seems very similar to what Lombardi did. Basically hoarded picks and built the team up from the draft and then had prospects/picks to trade.

    Feels weird. Leafs Lineup has a few Kings now. Might be even more before the trade deadline. Hope they have success overall.

    Johnsson - Matthews – Marner
    Kerfoot - Tavares - Hyman
    Clifford - Spezza – Kapanen
    Engvall - Gauthier - Timashov

    Muzzin – Holl
    Dermott - Barrie
    Sandin - Liljegren

    Campbell starts
