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!

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?




18 Jun 2018 15:02:47
I’ll try something different.
To Florida: kapanen
To Toronto: petrovic

To Calgary: levio, brooks
To Toronto: stone

I’m just trying to be a bit more simple.


1.) 18 Jun 2018 15:21:38
Kap is going nowhere!

2.) 18 Jun 2018 15:27:01
Kaps is going nowhere.

3.) 18 Jun 2018 15:45:17
I think I would rather keep Kapanen over Petrovic. We have a lot of good young depth defensemen who can step up if we need them. Petrovic isn’t much of an improvement over anyone who we already have, if at all. Kapanen, however, is an extremely talented and fast skating forward that’s excels on pk and can be used in all situation such if the game. There is no doubt in my mind that Kapanen will be a top six forward in a year or two.

4.) 19 Jun 2018 00:56:34
I like Petrovic but Leafs don't need another depth defenseman, especially not at the cost of Kapanen.

5.) 19 Jun 2018 16:09:10
Hugh Allan, you are probably right. I was trying to focus on defensive dmen (who can drop the mitts as well) to supplement the offence we have from our d. Trying to think of ways to shore up our back end. We don’t need a karlson (I’d take him in a heart beat though like everyone else), we need defensive help. Like a Manson or petrovic etc.



13 Jun 2018 17:32:35
Ok I’m going to try and big one for you guys to chew on while I’m at work.

To Toronto:
Moulson (1 year remaining)

To buffalo:
1st 2018
2nd 2018
Rights to JVR.


1.) 13 Jun 2018 18:34:19
How about second 2019 and 7th 2020 instead of 2nd 2018.

2.) 13 Jun 2018 18:44:48
Girgensons would be an ok komarov replacement
Ristoleinen we need for a top pairing right D
Nylander would play with his brother and be a great young forward to have
Moulson helps to balance for fair trade
Dermott moves up to top 4D all though he may not be ready
We lose our future star defenceman in Liljgren
we also lose 2 young right wingers
JVR may not sign with Buffalo and u also may have to include Bozak

In the end:
I would accept this trade because Nylander and Ristolienen are good young players we could use, but we would need to get rid of moulson for cap reasons.
Also I don't know if Buffalo would accept this, unless Rasmus Dahlin is guarenteed to be a superstar.

3.) 13 Jun 2018 21:15:44
Absolutely not.

Moulson is garbage and at $5M is most expensive AHL’er around. Girgensons is useful, but 4th line player at best. Young Nylander has a lot of potential, but doesn’t appear to be anywhere near the level of his older brother. Which leaves only Ristolainen as the only good NHL ready player we would be bringing in.

In exchange, you are offering three roster players, all of whom are very good players, a future stud (and last year’s 1st round pick) in Liljegren, and coughing up an extra 1st and 2nd from this year’s draft.

4.) 13 Jun 2018 22:16:22
What happened with Kapanen? It appears this is a lopsided victory post for the Sabres?
Go Leafs!

5.) 14 Jun 2018 00:08:58
We could also just put Moulson on Waivers if we don’t want him.

6.) 14 Jun 2018 03:00:36

This is just terrible.

Why have so many people already forgot the Shanaplan?

It’s as if you want us to lose.

Gardiner = Ristolainen
Brown > Girgensons
Kapanen > Nylander
Than we give them Lil, 1st, 2nd and whatever value JVR still holds in exchange for Moulsons atrocious contract.



11 Jun 2018 16:26:14
Maybe I’m off with value here but instead of all the massive deals, why not just a simple
Manson and a 2nd to Toronto for kapanen and Toronto’s first. Toronto drops down and picks up Manson. Anaheim gets a bit of scoring.


1.) 11 Jun 2018 16:56:33
You are way off value here. No way Anaheim makes that trade.

2.) 11 Jun 2018 17:29:02
Not enough for Manson.

3.) 11 Jun 2018 17:44:20
Anyway, it’s also fun to speculate massive blockbuster trades too. Lol. That’s what we are here for. If everyone proposed the same old boring depth trades, it would lose its appeal pretty fast.

4.) 12 Jun 2018 03:50:10
Does losing Manson outweigh the benefits of acquiring Kapanen from the Ducks perspective? I think not!
Too many of the trade suggestions are made while only taking the Leafs needs/ desires into account and not the teams the trades are being made with.

@craigers12: I can see strome playing in the AHL too. That family has proved to be moving but a bunch of kids who don’t reach their projected potential.

Agreed fully. Leafs do not need another offensive dman. They need defensive!

I wish. I’d take petrovic over pysyk but that’s just me. I really don’t know gardiners worth. It’s too tough to judge. I’d love to see them get rid of him but I know that’s a lot of offence taken away from the back end.

Jeepers. where do I start
Trade 1. Is a maybe
Trade 2. Could happen
Trade 3. Is a great trade but I imagine Toronto will have to add. Defense may be worth more than a winger/ C
Trade 4. Is a complete joke. Reilly is the only dman that could get us a guy like nurse which wouldn’t make sense. It would be at least gardiner and liligren plus a pick. Zietzev isn’t worth much. Better off playing him minutes to hopefully get back to normal.
I still have a soft spot for schenn but he wouldn’t be much of an upgrade over polak.
I, like every other leaf fan would love to see JT sign with the leafs but I can’t see it happening. Hopefully but probably not
Rick Nash would be nice but isn’t worth more than 2.5-3 million anymore. Someone will end up giving him more. Leafs should avoid and find a third/ forth liner with more speed and grit.

I’d rather keep nylander and fix our d than trade for a guy who could be good. Way better with the devil you know.
