Leafs: Bozak, Soshnikov, Valiev
Jackets: Murray

The Columbus BJ's need a center, Leafs need a good D, so Lamz and Karkz need to make this happen because the BJ's are not going to move Jones or Werenski, Savard is risky with 4 years left of 4.25 mil, and then broke ass Johnson who would not even be a top line D in the AHL anymore. So Murray comes in, replaces Gardiner, then we move J Gardz that defensive pilon to the Jets for an Erik Johnson from Colorado or Trouba because he sure is available. That would make:

Rielly-Trouba
Murray-Zaitsev
Hainsey-Borgman

Ya. Nice.

I would like to see these lines in the future:

Hyman-Matthews-Bracco
Grundstrom-Nylander-Marner
Kapanen-Kadri-Brown
Martin-Aaltonen-Soshnikov/Korshkov

Rielly-Rasanen
Borgman-Liljegren
Nielsen-Zaitsev

Andersen
Woll

Top line Matthews and Bracco are both American, can form some good chemistry. Bracco will be an elite playmaker that can just set up Matthews every game. This brings balance as we can put Nylander and Marner together with a grinder, which can do damage just thinking about it. 3rd line I would do Kap-Kad-Korsh but I doubt Babs wants a KKK line, so Brown is good there.

Defense Rielly gets a monster shut down partner, Rasanen probably will not become elite (if he did that woyld be great) but he is a shut down guy, which can allow Rielly to keep doing what he is doing. Gardiner needs to go. Dermott seems like the most top 4 material LHD we have, but Borgman is another future shut down defenseman which can allow Liljegren to become like Karlsson.

Rasanen is 2 years away. He has to work on his defensive game and his skating. But when he's ready, watch out. Gardiner will go just before then.

So for next year Zaitsev plays with Gardiner.

Liljegren is learning D. When that happens, everything will be in place. Expect him next year and this year after the trade deadline as a callup for a look at him. He could play with Reilly and that would open space on the ice for Reilly, but I like your pairing better. Borgman should be a well experienced 2 way Dman by then.

So next year, we leave Rielly with Gainsey, who have played well together. Nielsen will be ready next year but will have to wait for Gardiner to be moved.

My forward lines would be a little different:

Hyman, Matthews, Nylander
Grundstrom, Kadri, Marner
Korshkov, Kapanen, Brown
Marchment, Gauthier, Sosh

-Nylander gets center the year after, when Bracco gets some experience.

-Marner needs a quality center that can tip shots (Kadri) and Grundstrom always shoots first. Just perfect. Marner is freed up from having to back check for an entire line as Kadri and Grundy are both good two way players.

-Kap can play center, 2 sniper wingers with speed and quickness

-Marchment is coming (camp surprise, good size), Gauthier and his improved skating finally make it, Sosh is good all around

Martin will be a floater, inserted into the lineup when brawn is required on the 2nd and 3rd lines. The 4th line is tough enough.

The other standby's are Johnson and Dermott.

All players on the 2-4th lines can back check and have excellent offensive skills.

Babs just rolls those 3 lines (4 pairs- rests Marner) for penalty kills and rests the 1st line. I predict a lot of short handed goals.

Leafs: Bozak, Leivo
Ducks: Manson

I like this, the only issue is the Ducks would need to send something over the cap.


2.) 08 Nov 2017 20:43:30
What about trading bieksa for polak then so we eat contract and they send us a high round pick. Idk how valued he is with the ducks though. Just to balance out cap hits.


3.) 09 Nov 2017 03:30:08
Good ideas.

Article about players that need a change of scenery, Galchenyuk and Bennet highlight the list as good young players drafted 3rd and 4th overall who can still become something somewhere else. Marner needs a good centermen to play with.

Leafs: Leivo, 3rd
Flames: Bennet

Or

Leafs: Leivo, Timashov
Dipshits: Galchenyuk

Then trade Leo for 2nd
Bozak for a 2nd and prospect

Hyman-Matthews-Nylander
Kapanen-Bennet/Galchenyuk-Marner
Marleau-Kadri-Brown
Martin-Moore-Soshnikov

For defence, Gardiner needs to go. He shows low work ethic, pretty smooth skating, good offensive dman but horrible defensivley. Also, many people on here seem to think Trouba is not getting traded? I think he will be, and who better to trade him to than Toronto?

Leafs: Gardiner, Carrick
Jets: Trouba

Doing this leaves a whole on the LHD, so;

Leafs: Jvr
Ducks: Fowler

Rielly-Trouba
Fowler-Zaitsev
Borgman-Polak

I do not even like Fowler but if the shoe fits.

Back up your response.

Again, Jets won't downgrade from Trouba to Gardiner for a meh prospect.

Arizona depth chart:

Domi-Stepan-Keller
Perlini-Dvorak-Duclair
Crouse-Strome-Reider
Cousins-Fischer-Merkley

OEL-Chychrun
Hjalmarsson-Demers
Joseph-Goligoski
Wood

Stepan and Dvorak are core players for this poop Arizona team, so to have a former 3rd overall pick play on the 3rd line or even the second line in the future is not ideal. Strome did not even make the team this year, so why not make a littoe offer for him.

Leafs: Leivo, Bracco, Carrick
Coyotes: Strome

Then Leafs future lineup could look like this:

Hyman-Matthews-Nylander
Kapanen-Strome-Marner
Grundstrom-Kadri-Brown
Martin-Aaltonen/Brooks-Soshnikov
Korshkov

Then to make leaf fans cream their pants, make a trade to whoever wins the lottery this year so we can draft Rasmus Da(yummm)hlin 1st overall.

Leafs: Gardiner, Nielsen, Kapanen, 1st 2018 and 1st 2019
Team: 1st overall pick.

With this, we can simply take Kapanen out of the second line and promote players. And now for defense:

Dahlin-Zaitsev
Rielly-Liljegren
Dermott-Rasanen
Borgman

I am going to go ahead and make these plans on NHL 18, so you guys can send your h8 in the comments section.

You have quite the imagination.


2.) 01 Nov 2017 06:56:39
Leivo, Bracco, and Carrick from Leafs for. Strome? No. Go back to arena football:)


3.) 02 Nov 2017 04:40:45
What is wrong with it? We do not have room for any of them and Bracco has good value, I like him and would keep him but we cannot put him anywhere we are too deep at wing, so to be able to get a center like Strome that can make a great 1-2 punch with Marner on the second line behind Matthews and Nylander, that would be good.
