Isles President and General Manager, Lou Lamoriello, addressed the media after the announcement of the Devon Toews trade.

  • 06:37 •

Lou Lamoriello had to have a difficult conversation with Devon Toews on Monday afternoon, speaking with the defenseman before dealing him to Colorado for a pair of second-round picks in 2021 and 2022.

Lamoriello said it wasn't a move he wanted to have to make, or that it was any indictment against Toews as a player, but was a necessary deal to help alleviate the team's cap crunch and acquire assets. Toews was a restricted free agent, along with Mathew Barzal and Ryan Pulock, and had filed for arbitration. The salary cap will stay at $81.5M for next season.
