Kyle Dubas, general manager of Toronto Maple Leafs, is delighted with the performance of Alex Galchenyuk, who plays for the company’s school club in the American League.
During its mid-season press meeting on Tuesday, GM made a brief comment on the acquisition of the former Montreal Canadians player. Dubas, who calls it an ideal because the hockey player is not responsible for multiple days of detention, believes that the leaves can call him back if Galchenuk continues his good habits.
“According to the information I received from Greg [Moore] And Marlis staff, he’s great. We want him to continue to build his faith. […] Eventually he will have a chance. We want him to start all over again so he can build something. We hope to get him in good shape and work with our development instructors, and then play games with Marlis. ”
In six clashes with Branch, the American skater scored two goals and six assists. Appointed by the Ottawa Senators on Oct. 28, he made eight appearances for the team before trading with the Carolina Hurricanes on Feb. 13. Two days later, he moved to Queen City.
One is ready to sacrifice hope
In addition, Dubas said he would not hesitate to trade in one of his company’s top opportunities to improve his team’s chances of winning the Stanley Cup in 2021.
Without hesitation, when a journalist asked him a question, the CEO responded with a heartfelt “yes.”
Some of Maple Leafs’ quality opportunities include forward Nick Robertson and Rodion Amirov, as well as defenseman Rasmus Sandin.
In addition, Dubas expressed a desire to improve his team of players beforehand through a transaction.
«[Avant la saison], We had to get rid of some forwards who were too good for us to make a profit on defense. So we are of the opinion that we should look more towards attack, ”said the 35-year-old.
Dubas suggests looking at a rental player due to his club’s high salary limit. He wants to do business sooner rather than later, making a 14-day detention mandatory for a player from an American team.
The 31 teams of the National League have until April 12 to make deals.
