I’d imagine there are very degrees of excitement around this ranging from: “Why are you bothering me with this?” to “Who is that guy?” Well, that doesn’t change the fact that this is something that happened with the Leafs and we’re going to cram it into your eye holes.
MIN and TOR have a trade for the rights to unsigned junior Fedor Gordeev, who goes back into the draft if not signed before June 1. 7th round pick if he signs in MIN. Which is fully expected to happen.

Cool. A 7th round pick isn’t bad. Especially when the Leafs had no intention of signing Gordeev…
Can confirm that #Leafsforever will not be signing Fedor Gordeev & Ryan McGregor to ELC’s before the June 1st deadline, meaning they’ll enter the 2019 NHL draft. Furthermore, Dakota Joshua (Ohio State, NCAA), will not sign with the Leafs. He will become a UFA on Aug 15. @TLNdc

So yeah, that’s what went down. The Leafs could have either had Gordeev go for nothing or they could get a 7th for him. They got a 7th for him. That’s a win.
