Okay so like the Leafs have been awful recently and need a wake up call. I would leave the offence we have the way it is;


Defence can be fixed very easily, getting rid of Gardiner and aquiring another d. I think the Leafs can attempt Karlsson right now.

Leafs: Kapanen, Leivo, Gardiner, Carrick, 2017 1st

Senators: Karlsson

That would give the Leafs lines of;

Rielly-Karlsson (Bruh)

Dear Lou Lamz, if you are on this site full of grown men posting terrible opinions, please notice that we all h8 Gardiner and need him gone. Trade him to another team for literally anyone please. Even other teams are looking at him and feel bad for us.

Thank you sm

projecting 2018 line up

hyman- matthews-nylander
Jvr - brooks - marner
martin - Gauthier -kapanen

rielly - zaitsev
dermott- hainsey
borgman- liligren

Notable changes : bozak, komarov, gardiner, polak.

should haul in a good crop of prospects with that pool. Or a half decent RHD. Mike green is a FA option though he might be a bit old.

Brooks can take the 3c spot, or move nylander there and shift brooks to the wing.

Agree1 Disagree2

Brooks is a center and should stay there.

JVR re-signed?

Not so sure that Liljegren will be ready, slight possibility though.

Green will be expensive, so only a 1 year deal.

Lineups are pretty good.

Hey leafs fans you might not know this but if the leafs where to have every UFA walk and cap is to go up as they say, the leafs would have 33 mil in cap. That being said hey are some trade idea's.

Bozak and Carrick to one of three teams for a1st


Gardiner, Sosh Rychel and 2nd

Yotes OEL

cap is not affected
re-sign JVR 6mill-6years
If the leafs were to sign JT then Marner or Nylander become expendable.

Having looked at Florida and Tampa Bay roster caps, maybe it's time for the League to balance out the cap amounts for different taxation jurisdictions.

After all, this whole cap thing is to make it easier for poor teams to be competitive. But why should Tampa Bay be able to under pay their players simply because of a tax loophole(or lack of tax).

And why shouldn't Canadian teams get an allowance for the difference between the two currencies, after all the players are all paid in $US.

If not, why in the hell should richer teams be forced under cap regulations. If you need to make things equal for poorer teams, make everything equal for all teams.

This doesn't affect the Leafs or Habs, that much, but it could be a killer for teams like Winnipeg, Calgary, and Vancouver, and most probably Ottawa.

If the NHL doesn't want to be proactive in this reguard; maybe the Canadian Government(s) should give the Canadian teams tax breaks for players to balance the tax breaks given in some states in the US and the difference in the dollar. And increase the taxation on imported entertainment(not part of the free trade deal) to offset that ( a much larger overall amount ).

Carolina is an up and down team with some pretty strong RHD. Obviously the jackpot would be Faulk. But unless new ownership is looking to make a splash I doubt he’s available. But just for shits and giggles what kind of package would the leafs have to offer for Faulk?

What about their young guys in TVR and Pesce? Both young RHD who don’t have a huge body of work but got to be an upgrade to whom the leafs are playing now? Could the leafs put a package together with Brown, Shos, Carrick and a pick. Canes are at the top of their allowed contracts so we’ll have to take some Random’s on the way back.

Agree0 Disagree3

It would be tough for The leafs to pull off a trade with the canes as they’re both at the top end of allowed contracts. But the canes have some RHD and need some offence.

Faulk would be ideal but would cost a few pieces and even under new ownership Faulk probably not on the table.

Their young guys in TvR and peexsa.

In my opinion, the Leafs have two choices, go all in this year and sacrifice some prospects or be patient with the young players.
I hope they are patient with the young players, trade anyone who will not contribute over the next 3-5 years.
Get rid of Bozak, Komarov, and Polak. I might keep JVR if he re-signs at a reasonable price, otherwise, get rid of him. Kadri deserves better than Komarov. Connor Brown deserves better than 4th line.
This team, as it stands, concerns me in the playoffs. I am a huge Leaf fan but as the team is now, I don't believe they can win a playoff round.
It pains me to say it, but I don't think they could beat the Bruins, Habs or the Senators in a 7 game series, even though those teams are not as skilled as the Leafs.

Good point davido, agreed. I think too many here (including myself) have been pushing trades that are short term fixes and losing sight of the long term goal. I can't see this roster gtting past the Bruins, let alone Tampa in the playoffs. Good core, too many holes. Assets that will not help in the next couple of years should be moved to address those holes. The window is just opening. To that end:

Leafs: JVR, Bozak, Soshnikov, 2018 2nd
Canes: Faulk, N. Roy

Leafs: Komarov
Kings: 2018 2nd

Leafs: Gardiner, 2018 2nd (LA)
NYR: Chytil, 2018 1st

Leafs: Polak (also Marincin, Moore, Fehr)
Whoever: 2018 Mid round picks

Get some of the kids up for NHL experience and see what they have.

Hyman - Mathews - Nylander
Lievo - Kadri - Brown
Marleau - Aaltonen - Marner
Martin - Goat - Kapanen
Rielly - Faulk
Dermott - Zaitsev
Borgman - Hainsey

Not all that much worst then the current line up and some additional futures to fill the holes: N. Roy (C), Chytil (C) and an extra 2018 1st.

Agree2 Disagree0

I like the way you said it, good core, too many holes.
I don't believe one or two trades will provide any sort of short term fix.
They need to let the young guys play, make mistakes and learn from them.
I like your lineup and if Lou can make that happen, the Leafs would have a great core with minimal holes, other than inexperience. Once Hainsey contract is up, hopefully Lillegren will be ready to step up.

Reasons Canes make a deal like this. 1) Good, solid team only lacking scoring. 2)Bubble team, fighting for the last wildcard spot. 3)Haven't made the palyoffs since 2008. 4)New owner might want to make a statement. 5) Faulk has a cap hit of only 4.8M but his actual salary is 5.5M this year and 6.0M the next 2 years. Leafs have deep pockets. 6)McKeown is ready and waiting in the minors. Trading for needs from a depth position.
Leafs get a young, top pairing partner for Reilly. Also get a big, skilled centre for the pipeline. Could challenge for the 3C next year. Potential line up next year:

Hyman - Mathews - Nylander
Grundstrom - Kadri - Brown
Marleau - Roy - Marner
Martin - Aaltonen - Kapanen
Rielly - Faulk
Dermott - Zaitsev
Borgman - Liljegren
Extras; Rychel, Lievo, Hainsey
Hainsey makes an ideal 7D. Can play left or right, up and down the line up. Experienced, steadying influence on whoever he plays with. Now that looks like solid team with few holes.

I think you can get more than that for Komarov, like a late 1st. His checking, hitting, and supplementary scoring, would work out really well on a contender like the Preds or Ducks, or OMG! The West leading! Really are Golden! Knights.


TOR: Komarov, T. Moore, later 7th

VEG: 1st, Coglan

This is not actually a lot more, but gets the boost to the late first and a 19 yr old undrafted RHD project; for Komvarov, T. Moore (another project), and a 7th as a little grease.

The 1st can then be used in a deal as barter for a RHD.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Jan 2018 11:24:38
Maybe we only need McKowan as a 3rd pair RHD?

Agree0 Disagree0

Tor- Gardiner, 2018 1st round pick, Bracco

Win- Trouba


Liljegren will soon take Carrick's spot and he falls to the 7th guy

Usually the asking price for a good player is a roster player, a 1st, and a decent prospect. Leafs could add if needed. Then the leafs can trade their two 2nd round picks for a 1st in the draft.

Trouba isn't available.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Jan 2018 15:26:01
Of course Trouba's available. He still wants out of the Peg. Who doesn't?

They are weak on the LHS. Enstrom is about done. Kulikov is over payed even at 3.8M. Morrisey has shown more than either of those two, but he's still inexperienced.

So yes they can use Gardiner, and trade Trouba to put an end to that problem.

The above is actually and overpayment for Trouba.

Look on the bright side "Pegger". The Jets will make the playoffs and the Oilers won't. It's to the Cup! All the way! The jinx is over!

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Jan 2018 15:32:03

Okay they can keep Trouba and re-sign him for 12M / yr. Judging by the way you keep posting. He must be worth that, maybe more.

And maybe guarantee 30 minutes/ night.

Your pathetic.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Jan 2018 15:51:48
Toronto doesn't have any asset or group of assets that they would be willing to trade that would land Trouba.

11 Jan 2018 15:54:17

Nice rant. Maybe you should take your ball and go home.

He wants out of peg but i think he wants out of canada in general.

14 Jan 2018 12:58:12

Try posting, you have no posts. All babble; no posts.

Give us 5 quality posts and then you can go back being an antagonist.

Otherwise look out your Manitoba window.
