How about a simple deal
To Calgary: Conner brown/ levio and a third
To Toronto: andersson

Simple deal moving a strength for a weakness for both teams. That gives Toronto the chance to move kap up the lineup and gives a dman with potential to slot into the lineup.

Leafs don’t need more depth defence, we already have the best depth defence in the league, Anderson will just be replaced by Liljgren so no point in doing that.

Seems like an overpayment for the prospect Andersson. It weakens is for next year because we lose Brown and Leivo of the current roster and don’t bring anyone in.

Brown is an NHL now player, who immediately contributes. Along with Leivo and a third seems like a bit much for the second round pick Andersson, who is still a few years away from making Leafs, if ever, and would be limited to 3RHD behind Liljegren and Zaitsev.

@bettsy if the '/ ' implies Brown OR Leivo, then we're cookin now. I think Nylander's holdout has been a real positive for Leivo as he's looked fairly capable in a top 9 role and could be increasing his trade value. Should the holdout continue, Leivo has two more full games next to Kadri. A few points in those games could go a long way towards making him an attractive trade piece. Leivo, Pickard and a 3rd could be enough to bring in Anderson if Leivo keeps showing up and starts putting ticks on the scoresheet.

I’ll throw out a balls to the wall idea
To Edmonton: nylander, brown and sparks and a second
To Toronto: puliyarvi (completely binged that), nurse.


1.) 25 Sep 2018 22:19:10
I like Nylander for Nurse. So Brown, Sparks, and 2nd for Puljujärvi works for me. I like the size of both these guys. And Puljujärvi has a lot of potential that I don’t think is being used properly in Edmonton. Puljujärvi would look good beside either Matthews or Tavares.

2.) 25 Sep 2018 22:20:38
Leafs would need to add a capable dman to replace Nurse. possibly Gardiner.

3.) 25 Sep 2018 22:24:01
I like Nurse, not so sure about Pulley.

4.) 25 Sep 2018 23:26:33
We don’t need Nurse, he is LH and we need a RHD so leafs say no.

5.) 26 Sep 2018 02:13:01

Saying we don’t need Nurse because he’s LHD is like saying we don’t need McDavid because he is a center.


I think it’s too early to call Puljujärvi a bust. I find it hard to believe that Edmonton manages to keep drafting bust after bust after bust. It seems a rather awkward fact that Hall has his breakout year after being traded. It is very possible Puljujärvi isn’t being used properly and has the potential to be the steal of this trade.

Haven’t posted in a while so I guess I could use a knock down from everyone so how about this

To Colorado: nylander, levio
To Toronto: zadorov, Timmons and a first

Can you imagine the position Colorado will be in next year with Ottawa’s first? They would have a stacked (and controlled) offence with some good dmen even if they did this trade.


1.) 17 Sep 2018 17:56:32
I think Avs say no.

Avs gave up O’Reilly for Zadorov, who has easily lived up to expectations since being traded. A massive 6’5” and 230 lbs, he led the league last year with a whopping 278 hits. He’s currently Avs best LHD, and you are not giving them a replacement. It would cost at least Nylander to obtain Zadorov alone. There is no way Sakic will throw in Timmins and a 1st.

As much as I like Zadorov, Leafs don’t really need him. Unless or until we move Gardiner, there is no room for him in the current lineup. We need RHD version of Zadorov.

2.) 17 Sep 2018 20:17:58
That would be a great haul for Willy, all three of those pieces would be great adds.



02 Jul 2018 19:22:32
Just a thought that crossed my mind and while t doesn’t fill a positional bed it could help the team.
To Toronto: Wilson plus a second rounder
To Washington: nylander

While I would love to have nylander in a deal for a guy like parynko or someone like that we also need some toughness that can play 82 games

What do you guys think?


1.) 02 Jul 2018 20:44:26
What no way
Nylander is like 5 times better then Wilson, you basically saying Nylander for a second and a fourth liner, no way.

2.) 02 Jul 2018 21:31:39
Oh bettsy.

3.) 02 Jul 2018 22:34:18
Did you fall down and bump your head Bettsy? Normally you put up good stuff, but this is way outside the target. Not only did you miss the bullseye, you missed the entire board.

4.) 03 Jul 2018 01:20:12
I like Wilson but he and Nylander are not even in the same catagory of hockey players.
A move like that would cost Dubas his job before he even got started!



22 Jun 2018 07:55:54
Just a night shift thought. Toronto moved #25 and levio to Montreal for their top two second rounders. Toronto selects mcissac and samuelsson with the two second rounders?

I’m all for getting Anderson but I’d be looking at Murray coming back, not penarin. With nylander Columbus will be free to move penarin to another team for whatever they choose.

Edmonton would need to add multiple 1st. That’s to cover the fact lucic is nowhere near as good and young plus his contract is a ridiculous anchor. The moral of this story is no, absolute no.

I love this trade. I really would love to have zadorov in this deal but I would be happy with that.

I agree completely. I would much rather have a guy like gudbranson or petrovic. Someone with a little more toughness in front of the net.

Hopefully lol. I can’t see Columbus taking this deal.
