Trade Kipper Lf someone else on the pannel that doesn't talk out of there Aziz

Pieterangelo isn't an option, if they were to trade top picks and prospects if would be for parayko, young controllable asset with massive upside size and potential. argubley would be the best d for the leafs righy away. Whereas, Pieterangelo on the decline bigger cap hit and will likely want more money that the leafs can afford after next year. can someone say Seabrook 2.0 in a couple years,Also just had hand surgery. Its sad that a guy with rocks for brains mentions one name, and every hack writes articles saying why that guys is a fit, even though he's not. keys core age, young controllable asset for young controllable asset.

I love it when Kypreos talks about how he was the enforcer for NYR. It was his job to protect the stars. Lmao. Cause Mark Messier needed Nick Kypreos to protect him. Hahaha.

Kypreos is good at getting rumors started. And before Pietrangelo got injured, it seemed like a decent idea. And maybe not so far fetched still. Let’s just see what happens once Pietrangelo returns. If we can get him cheap and his play returns to form, Leafs would be wise to keep an eye on him.

So I have seen a lot of people saying we should move kap for a dman or to improve the left side. I think its nuts. i think the play up front is to have:

Then get solid forechekers like hyman to play up that left side and run it like 3 first lines.

You should move gardiner over Kap every day of the week.

You definitely have the right idea. Keeping our forward group intact and trading from LHD to address RHD seems most logical to me. What with Rosen and Sandin playing so well in AHL, it seems more and more unlikely that Gardiner will be returning. As pending UFA though, the return will be small and Dubes might just opt to hold on to him for a cup run this year.

What do you think we could get for Gardiner in return deal if we traded him Howlingstone? Would you prefer a puck/ prospect or future, or a short term but more proven player so we don’t diminish our odds at deep playoff run this year?

well for starters I think the leafs have Gardiner, Johnsson, Brown, and Zaitsev as trade chips for this year. those are solid players that you could use to round out your lineup quite nicely.

secondly i don't think you use those trade pieces to go all in this season. I think you use them to develop a long term line up.

Thirdly, don't believe you want to make too many moves and mess with the chemistry of your team. This group has been through a lot together and you just can't cast guys aside.

AS for who I would target, i really like dallas as a trade partner. They are solid defensively but are struggling to put pucks in the net. I think Devin shore, Esa lindell, and maybe even Honka would be solid to pick up. They are just out of a playoff spot so taking a ufa that can help offense from the back end would be nice for them. Also Spezza will be coming off the books next year and they will have the cap space to sign gardiner.

You could also make an argument for NY islanders, but who do you take back. They have pulock, but everyone else is either just a little out of the price range or not worth having in the NHL. The other teams I think it makes sense to trade with are Anahiem, Arizona, Carolina, Edmonton, and maybe New Jersey.

I don't think there is a lot that will be done by Anahiem so I think its a waste to discuss. Similarly Edmonton has no real rome to make changes with how close they are to the cap. I would trade for Puljujarvi, but who do you give up for him. the only perosn would be Johnsson and that this selling pretty low.

New Jersey is interesting, because they are in last place in their conference but could stil turn the season around with the right moves. I think the targets her would be Zacha and Severson. The prolem is their cost would be high and would have to include a centre. So you would start off with lindholm and move on from there. I think it would end up looking like Johnsson, Lindholm, Gardiner +. If you did this though you could move hainsy to his natural side and put him with Z which would really help Zaitsev I think.

Neither Puljujärvi or Zacha are living up to expectations. Johnsson is the only decent young piece we have that may be enough to entice either team. His performance has really picked up lately. We may be selling low, but so would NJ and EDM. I like Zacha because I see him as possible replacement for Kadri in a few years if he works out.

You did an outstanding job here identifying the best trade chips we have and potential trade partners and target players. You made it clear that you prefer long term growth over short term success a trade any cost. Very smart thinking. It would be nice to win a cup this year, but we want to win it again too after. I won’t be alive for the next parade if we go another 40+ years between championships.

Let's all keep in mind... Quality over Quantity. We can't give up Gauthier and a 3rd round pick and get Puljujarvi who was 4th overall a few years ago just because he hasn't become anything yet. Sure, quantity of decent pieces can get you something, but not Lindgren Gauthier Engvall and Zaitsev with picks for someone like Simmonds for example that does not work. Also, it's highly doubtful Dubas trades Zaitsev this season of we are going for the cup so the player coming back better be good in his eyes. I think he will be gone at the draft tho.

Hey guys I posted a couple days ago and you guys liked it so I'll post again. Some of you thought the trades were a bit unrealistic which is reasonable. Here are my proposals.

2019 2nd
2020 4th

2019 7th

3 way trade
Leafs. Flyers and Carolina
Leafs get
Flyers 2019 4th

Flyers get
Canes 2019 1st

Canes get
Leafs 2022 1st
Flyers 2019 2nd

Leafs lines
Kapanen Matthews Nylander
Hyman Tavares Marner
Simmonds Kadri Ritchie
Ennis Lindholm Brown

Riley Slavin
Gardiner Montour
Dermott Ozighanov

Both Ritchie and montour have cheap contracts and probably won't cost a lot to resign them. I believe that for the contracts they replace (Marleau and gardiner) the Aniheim players are way cheaper. We get better defence and some toughness and skill and now have the best third line or even top 9 in the NHL. Top 4 looks a lot better with slavin.

Second post I really think that Leafs should consist Kassian deal for either Hyman or Brown
He kills penalties and has sandpaper

Agree0 Disagree0

Sorry need better grammar needs to read Kaddish for either Brown or Hyman
Brown preferably.

Detroit has a big dman in their system by the name name of Dylan McIlrath ...he is 6 foot 5 and played as Reilly's RHD in JR..he is in detroits system so would only take somewhere around 5th round pick to get him ...Reilly loved playing with him in jr

Low risk maybe good reward
