Leafs: Rychel
Arizona: K. Wood


1.) 28 Aug 2017 20:19:05
Would be nice, but doubt Arizona does this?

Leafs: JVR, Bozak, Rychel, Carrick, 2nd

Flames: Hamilton, Bennet, 6th


1.) 09 Aug 2017 06:59:40
Enough with the Hamilton trades, this trade helps no team. Calgary don't need two LWers when they already have johnny and Matty who are way better than JVR and rychel. Hamilton is not being traded because they have one of the best d core now. Leafs and flames would never make this unrealistic trade, stick to nhl 17.

Hey Goatson Matthews, the mere mention of NHL 17 in your post response tells me that you play NHL 17 yourself quite often and that is why your trade proposals absolutely suck. Any player is tradeable for the right price. Remember Calgary was kicking tires on the availability of Kadri as a shutdown forward to use against McDavid this past NHL season?

3.) 09 Aug 2017 17:26:08

At least my proposal are more realistic and I can spell "more", and you're the most sensitive person on this site. All your trades are garbage and you defend your trades when everyone disagrees with it, you even had to reply to your own post one time. I don't know why you're so triggered ma'am. And NHL 17 was just a reference, and that's a reference used time and time when a bad post is posted ( yours)

4.) 09 Aug 2017 17:28:01

Check out my previous post, and the reply's are way better than that you get in your trades ma'am.

5.) 09 Aug 2017 18:34:40
If I may mediate within this discussion.

There's really no need for us to argue over this trade proposal. We can all agree that Hamilton would be a great addition to the Leafs d core.

Even greater would have been if the Leafs decided not to rush and trade that first round pick which turned into Hamilton.

Now that the Flames paid a significant amount to get him, and also re-signed Stone, traded for Harmonic, I don't see them parting with this core for the 2017-2018 season. Their team is being built by their management for the playoffs. Trading Hamilton would be counter productive to their plan.

I also heard NHL 17 is a really great game!

Nylander has the worse proposals on this site.

7.) 10 Aug 2017 01:43:57
goaston matthews is no diffrent.

Captain Clutch

Every time I post a trade, and someone criticizes it, I don't flip out on them, and you shouldn't be the one talking.

9.) 10 Aug 2017 04:57:35

I'm pretty sure my trades don't involve Phil Kessel coming back to Toronto.

10.) 10 Aug 2017 22:31:26
Goatson has some good posts.

11.) 11 Aug 2017 00:20:16

This is a great forum that gives users opportunities for sharing their thoughts and opinions, and from very passionate fans that have their hearts in the right places.

Lets hear each other out, regardless of how believable a trade is. Even better when trade proposals are supported with rationales that give some clarity.

12.) 11 Aug 2017 03:00:05
lol just trying to have some fun

every other trade proposal i made on this site is better than anything you came up with.

13.) 11 Aug 2017 05:15:46

What your calle Jarncrock deals and Barrie and landeskog deals? That you said " were the best trades ever seen on this site"

14.) 11 Aug 2017 05:16:25

Literally every one of your post has been criticized as being ridiculous.

15.) 13 Aug 2017 05:55:50
I would disagree Captain about any of my trade proposals. I recall you commenting on one of mine stating it was the most ridiculous thing you ever heard. What was that trade proposal I made? Can't recall, something about the Leafs trading up or something to draft Liljegren who was an absolute must for them. Gee I wonder who the Leafs ended up drafting? Hmmm. Maybe I wasn't that far off with my suggestions. Just saying, it's all fun on here but you really need to stop being an online douche to everybody.

Leafs: JVR, Carrick, Valiev
Jets: Trouba


1.) 21 Jul 2017 15:55:02
Give it a rest with the Trouba proposals.

2.) 22 Jul 2017 17:40:14
Trouba does make a lot of sense for the Leafs. Just not sure the Leafs can put the right package together for WNG.

3.) 24 Jul 2017 12:53:49
Hainsey can play the RHD2, and Carrick is good enough at RHD3 while we are waiting for Liljegren and the tree trunk.

No need to be held for ransom for a slightly better than average RHD.

Medial point production, huge ego, an American that wants to play in America, and average defence. Leafs don't need Trouba at the Jets price. They think he's Pronger and he's not even close.

Petrovic (FLA) is a much better option and he'll be much cheaper. A couple of Dmen like Petrovic (Maybe Pysyk as well) on the 3rd pair and the Leafs could move out Martin and get 4 lines of scoring. Leivo, Moore/ Hyman, Kap.

Florida needs LHD and money (self mandated cap reduction) so:

FLA: Demers, Petrovic (7.2M) - 3.1M in savings

TOR: Gardiner, Carrick (4.1)

Demers is locked in for 4 years at 4.5. Petrovic will require a new contract in a year; arguably 3M. Gardiner will require a big raise in two years, so down the road it's not too imbalanced money wise.

Carrick is a good cheap RHD going back, and Gardiner and the savings is the bait for the Panthers.

Options after the deal.

-Getting Petrovic means you can move Martin.
-Demers can be moved at premium RHD2 price in a year or two.
-Gardiner will be missed at LHD2, but we have Hainsey until Dermott or Neilsen is ready to bump him down to LHD3.

Note: I'd like to get Pysyk instead of Demers, but the Panthers seem really attached to him, the money would then not work, and I doubt they'd be willing to move him.

Leafs: Horton, Valiev, 3rd 2018
Vegas: 4th 2018


1.) 10 Jul 2017 05:29:48
What is the rationale for this deal? Horton's contract actually helps the Leafs to go over the cap without penalty.

2.) 12 Jul 2017 01:56:32
He takes a roster slot.



29 Jun 2017 06:12:00
Sign Girardi 2 years 2 mil per

Sign Franson 2 years 2.5 mil per

Sign Thornton or Marleau 2 year 5 mil per

Sign Lindback 2 years 2 mil per

Trade Horton, Valiev, and Johnson to Arizona (or another team trying to hit the cap floor) for 7th round pick






1.) 29 Jun 2017 06:59:58
Leafs don't need none of those players, and did carrick magically disappeared?

2.) 30 Jun 2017 04:08:05
Toronto only has 8 million an change in cap space and they haven't signed brown or hymen yet.

I do not always agree with David but I certainly do here, this trade helps us this year but screws us up the behind for the future. We have Liljegren coming in like 2 years just be patient.

I totally agree with Nylandermagic, Bracco is not going anywhere and Bozak has more value than Bonino did, plus he has amazing chemistry with Kessel so that gives him more value to the pens. Trade for what they need helps both.

If we trade Bracco to any team we will regret it in a few years, he is not going anywhere management love him and would rather keep him in a few years and trade Brown if it came to too many RW. Bracco is our up amd coming Gaudreau.

Brown could realistically play LW too and have success on that line, Hyman the same. Not a big fan of Leivo, I do not see him becoming more than a 3rd liner, Soshnikov is better. To start his career, playing with Kadri would be a pretty good move for Bracco. We have no use for Methot although he is good, Dumba on the other hand I am a fan of.

It is not about value, both of those dmen will be exposed so trading for Gardiner would only make him exposed too.
