Bob Mckenzie is sure that Drouin will get traded, and Leafs would definitely need a top line LW in which Hyman and JVR isn't. On the other hand, Lightning needs a young top 4 D because they rely on Hedman too much and improve depth as well.

Leafs: Drouin + Gudelevkis

Lightning: Gardiner (retain $1.5 million salary) + Sparks + 4th Round 2018

Why would the leafs do this? It's setting us back. Our defence is what needs improvement. We have plenty of wingers, mainly on the right side but I'm sure they can convert.

2.) 02 May 2017 05:52:37
I wouldn't mind drouin but he's going to ask for 6m+
- he's good but I'd rather keep JVR at that price.

3.) 02 May 2017 16:54:27
The Leafs need defence and you think they should trade a defenceman who played well in the playoffs?

4.) 02 May 2017 20:25:47
Leafs don't need drouin when they can give a young player that spot. Trading gardener would weaken our defence even more which was already bad.

5.) 04 May 2017 15:05:26
You think Drouin's a top LW?

Career best 53 pts on a really good team.

Miserable failure prior to that.

Self interest is his driving force.

No thank you.

JVR(LW), Gardiner(LD), Liepsic(LW), Bibeau(G)

Trouba(RD), Connor(LW), Comrie(G), and 2nd Round(2017)

Key points on how it benefits for each side

- Leafs are weak on (RD) depth position and Trouba makes up for it in the long term. At the same time, Jets get a very offensive who's reaching to prime(LD) in Gardiner since Jets have a strong depth in (RD) position and Trouba wants to be in top pairing long term which leafs are currently in need and a perfect fit.
Win-Win situation

- For the current age group of rebuild, I don't see JVR sticking around with the leafs and with him leaving that team creates a huge gap on (LW) position and needs a young top (LW) which is Connor for the long term. For Jets, they get a big offensive veteran who compliments the young guns in their organization plus his salary cap is attractive.

- Leafs get a young promising goalie in their depth system and can be a potential future starter goalie in which leafs are in desperate need. For jets, they get a instant starter in Bibeau for AHL long term or a long term backup goalie in Jets since they are riding with Hellebuyck as their main and goalie of the future, he's also a big guy like Hellebuyck.

- Leafs don't need Leipsic because Leafs have too many small skilled forwards and chances of having him to crack the into the Leafs roster is very unlikely. Jets benefits from him because he's a young skilled prospect who's got good potential.

- Leafs get a 2nd rounder in 2017 as it's meant to even/sweeten up the overall trade because giving up Gardiner and JVR are huge pieces. That 2nd rounder should not bother the Jets because the draft isn't like the last two years of drafts, plus the Leafs should be wise to draft a Talented goalie, (RD) guy, or a big center with that pick.

Overall speaking, I think its a perfect trade. Let's see what y'all think.

Although I like the trade, I don't think the Jets would like Gardiner per se or else I think this trade would have happened or at least a smaller one with Trouba and Gardiner.

The Leafs probably need to trade prospects to acquire a decent younger LHD to swap to WNG for Trouba

To PHA: F - B. Leipsic + D - T. Dermott

To TOR: D - S. Morin


To WNG: D - S. Morin + F. J. Bracco + 2018 3rd (SJ)

To TOR: D - J. Trouba.

2.) 10 Mar 2017 16:33:01
Jets are trading Myers not Trouba and they would want a good goalie. They already have Wheeler Laine Ehlers etc
And don't need JVR. Leipsic doesn't fit their size. Gardiner is not good at all on d.

3.) 10 Mar 2017 23:12:31
I find it hilarious that someone with the screen name 'cheeseburger phil' is evaluating a players ability to play defence.

4.) 10 Mar 2017 23:37:58
The Jets do not fit the requirements for the Leafs to trade with. Anaheim does. Last I checked, the Jets suck and won't make the playoffs. Too bad Laine had to be wasted there.

JVR would work well on any team, and after the Perrault (28pts) the next best is Lowry (21pts) . Matthias (12 pts) is all but done and slow. All of which; JVR (49 pts) is much better and more talented. Elhers is their only good player on LW at 54 pts and he's a flyweight; meaning in the playoffs he'll be up against it. JVR would do great on the 2nd line with Scheifele and Laine.

Their weakness down the left side on defence and LW is what is keeping them out of the playoffs. Enstrom and Stuart are done.

That is actually too good a deal for the Jets to refuse. The Leafs however are getting shorted. Trouba's not that good, Connor is a light weight and has proved zero in the NHL like Leipsic, Comrie can't handle the AHL, and the only good part is the 2nd.

So the Leafs would refuse.

Here are the good trade scenarios for getting young defencemen

Leafs Flyers Trade:

Leafs Receive: Sanheim, Myers, and 2018 3rd Round
Flyers Receive: JVR, Lindberg, Polak and 2018 5th Round

Leafs Hurricanes Trade

Leafs Receive: Bean and Fleury
Hurricanes Receive: Gardiner, Gauthier, and 2018 5th Round

Leafs Ducks Trade

Leafs Receive: Montour and Jones
Ducks Receive: Dermott and Kapanen

Leafs Habs Trade

Leafs Receive: Plekanec, Fucale, Juulsen and 2017 2nd Round
Habs Receive: Bozak, Sparks, and Nielsen
(Take on a bad contract with a mediocre centre to get granted 2nd Round for those who don't really understand the Plekanec
part of the trade)

No chance in hell leafs are giving up their best d prospect to our rivals that will bite the leafs in the @ss.

2.) 14 Feb 2017 03:54:10
Having guys like Sanheim, Myers, Montour, Bean and Fleury in the pool (fantasy speaking) it'll be fine. What do you suggest on the Habs trade part? Sergachev? Like moving that guy will happen lol. Please go ahead and gimme a better scenario "Goatson Matthews"

3.) 14 Feb 2017 03:55:28
Oh also I read that part you often say "Erikkson Ek is equivalent to Marner" I think you need to re-evaluate the value buddy.

4.) 14 Feb 2017 06:07:27
Gardiner and Gauthier can't bring you Bean and Fleury.

5.) 14 Feb 2017 06:08:27
These are all so tilted in the leafs favour.

6.) 14 Feb 2017 06:20:49
Guys, we are going to regret if we trade Kapanen I am very high on this guy I can see a JVR trade for Montour + / Kapanen 33 points in 33 games this year People want Montour but I think we can get him With out giving up Kapanen and ducks wants a proven top 6 left F like JVR.

7.) 14 Feb 2017 14:03:06

I meant that wild values erikson Ek like Marner to us. Doesn't mean he actually is but wild may. And I just said your Habs trade doesn't make sence to trade our best d prospect to our rivals? Please tell me why you can't take criticism?

8.) 14 Feb 2017 14:11:51
If you think they will give up sergachev In the first year they drafted him than you are joking.



25 Jan 2017 15:20:46
Similar trade to "mph91" but I made it even better, realistic (value wise) and more exciting. (I could be wrong on his/ her username spelling)

Trade #1
Flyers acquire: JVR, Corrado, Polak and Sens 2nd 2017, and 6th 2018

Leafs acquire: Sanheim, Myers and 1st 2017 to leafs

Trade #2
Wild acquires: Komorov and Timashov

Leafs acquire: Eriksson Ek and 7th 2017 round

Trade #3
Canucks acquire: Nylander, Sparks and 5th 2017 round

Leafs acquire: Juolevi, Demko and 7th 2017 round

1st and 2nd Round Draft Potentials
(depending on the standings by the end of season) :

1st round: Liljegren, Foote (favourite), Valimaki, or Hague

2nd round: Petruzzelli (he's a f*cking beast), Oettinger or Skinner

Those who say sign Shattenkirk. shut the f*ck up because he doesn't fit in the Leafs rebuild plans (age wise) and salary cap will kill us especially trying to sign Matthews (me) and my buddy Marner and other key core players in the long term.

Thoughts? I should be the next GM of the Leafs. oh wait, I'm Auston Matthews. Never mind that guys.

Dear Austin

I'm trying to figure out who your petruzzelli is can I have first name and where he plays please

2.) 25 Jan 2017 16:26:09
If it's goalie Keith he is 6 th ranked goalie in draft in one mock draft I visited selection 90 overall. Hold off your trades let's sit on this team til end season see where they end up.

3.) 25 Jan 2017 16:26:27
None of these trades will happen, and your second trade is way too lop sided.

4.) 25 Jan 2017 17:35:35
These trades make absolute no sense for all teams

5.) 25 Jan 2017 17:37:28
Who is pretruzelli? Never heard of him

6.) 25 Jan 2017 18:32:33
His name is Keith Petruzzelli, he is 17 years old, 6'6, and plays for Muskegon Lumberjacks (USHL). Apparently I heard scouts say he has the resemblance of Matt Murray based on playing style and potential but Petruzzelli is even bigger than Murray. As of now he's ranked #1 for North American Goalies.

Draft Rankings


This year's draft has some serious top end goalies.

7.) 25 Jan 2017 18:18:06
The first trade is good, but take out the 2nd going back from Toronto

8.) 25 Jan 2017 18:31:10
Even Benning wouldn't be stupid enough to make that trade

9.) 25 Jan 2017 18:34:27
Keith Petruzzelli, goalie in the USHL for Muskegon Lumberjacks. He's 12-7 with a 0.911 save percentage. He's also 17 sizing in at 6 foot 5, 180 pounds.

10.) 25 Jan 2017 19:52:28
I like your first trade

11.) 25 Jan 2017 21:04:47
The Vancouver trade would not happen the Leafs should not even think about trading Nylander he is going to be great, unless he is involved in a trade for a Dougie Hamilton



11 Jan 2017 23:14:34
Fair Trade in my opinion.

Winnipeg: JVR (LW) Dermott (D) Bibeau (G), late 2nd Round (2017)

Toronto: Trouba (D) Connor (LW) Comrie (G) 4th Round (2017), and 5th Round (2018)

Leafs have three 2nd Round picks and it doesn't hurt to give up one of them but late 2nd round is preferred. Based on how leafs are having their improved season, for their 1st Round they should select Callan Foote (D) at the 10th-20th pick. 2nd Round should mainly focus on a young talented goalie, so either Oettinger (G) or Skinner (G) should be selected.

Defence Depth: Goalie Depth:
Rielly Andersen
Trouba Comrie
Zaitsev Skinner or Oettinger
Gardiner Woll
Foote Kaskisuo

Leafs will be set in the next 2 years as contenders.

If you look rosters of NHL teams there are a boatload of defenceman that will be coming available. Vegas can only take 9 but there are many more teams will move to avoid the risk of losing them. Then Vegas will be stacked and they can't really compete for a while so they will trade to build up their farm system. Here are some names.

Ducks fowler Chicago van riemsdyk
Arizona stone. Columbus Johnson
Boston mcquaid detroit Ericsson
Buffalo jake McCabe oilers fayne
Calgary Jokipakka Florida Pysyk
Carolina Dahlback Loa Angeles Forbort
Minnesota Brodin Montreal Emelin
Nashville Ekholm New Jersey Merrill
NYIslanders hickey NY Rangers Klein
Ottawa Ceci Philadelphia Gudas
Pittsburgh Justin Schultz San Jose Braun
St Louis Parayko Tampa Bay Sustr
Toronto Corrado Vancouver Sbisa
Washington Orlov Winnipeg Trouba

Some you can say are not very good dmen but there are some studs on that list

I genuinely like the mould of this trade. Few issues: what about the Trouba doesn't want to play in Canada narrative? I also think the Jets are very high on Connor. Not much I can argue in the way of value, seems fair to me

Un-freakin-believable. why do we need another winger if we are deep. Why give up a young star with better potential for an aging star? If I had to give up marner to the jets, it'll be for Trouba, otherwise it's a dumb trade.

David, so that turns out to have three 1st rounders for this coming year's draft. I would use two 1st rounders to trade up for drafting Rasmus Dahlin. That's if leafs make it deep in playoffs, if leafs didn't make the playoffs and cannot draft him, I'd give 1st round plus 2nd round and 6th round to draft Dahlin.

NylanderMagic, you don't deserve that username! If I were to offer that price the way you did, I'd expect Hanifin, Pesce, Aho and a 2nd rounder for 2018. Heck, I'll throw in Gardiner in the package only if Carolina throws in Julien Gauthier in their package too. But the point of my post is that your original offer was so pathetic lol. Also what's 9+10?
