Here is the reality of leafs at deadline, you can all bow to me Monday

1)Leivo for a 2nd round pick

That’s it that’s all friends

Leafs give this a shot the way they are

100% —- lock it down.

Leivo hasn't proven enough in this league to be worth a 2nd round pick. His value sits at a 4th-5th round pick at best. Who in their right mind would pay a 2nd round pick for a guy who's played 25 games total and couldn't even secure a steady role on a young, rebuilding team?

(P. S saying Chiarelli would pay it doesn't count, as the question only refers to people in their right mind)

That would be very foolish and shortsighted

Lei of should stay under control and under 1 million. Leafs are not talking at all about Johnson.

Kapanan is playing with Moore and komarov not exactly helping him put up points.

This is third line I want to see

Johnson Aaltonen kappanen

That line is less than 3 million and was marries top line

Komarov Moore and brown on 4th line

Top two lines stay same

Jvr bozak traded.

We need to ask when are leafs in best position to win the Cup

I say 2019-20

Hyman Matthews kapanan
Marleau kadri mariner
Johnson nylander Bracco
Leivo gauthier. Grundstrom

Reilly Carlson
Dermott zaitsev
Borgman liljegren


And there will be free agent additions to that team

So it's not really about now.

It is about now . it’s always about now

You don’t make moves that will
Sacrifice tomorrow, but if moving a couple of plugs to get better now, they need to do it

There are obvious pieces you don’t move now, and I won’t mention them as it has been beaten to death . You also don’t move first round picks (unless it’s for an unbelievable D man )

Trading Lievo will not ruffle anything moving forward .

These kids have earned a chance to compete TOGEThER in the postseason and gain some experience . Will best whoever they play in round one .

Leivo is worth maybe a fourth rounder. I think if Leafs can get anything for either him or Martin, they should dump them both. Frees up a couple contracts. Leafs may have to retain some of Martins salary though.

I read some of these proposed trades and I laugh. What are some of u smoking. Leafs are not going to make any significant trades. They are going to stay the course and see what happens.

Doesn’t matter what way Carrick shoots . he’s soft like butter . if he shoots, we’re hoping for a tip anyways . what do I care if he is on his good side?

I would take a good strong d man on his “wrong side”. not looking for offense from this line

D it up boys . send this shrimp down and bring back cyborg . better for Boston series

Martin is in the line up for all 7 games, especially if uncle Leo is out for the season.

I know the shannaplan is not about this year, but it’s always about “this year” . you never know .

Without Martin, leafs would not have the physicality to do what they are about to do to Boston over the 7 game first round series

MVP’s of that series are Martin and Polock

. also have no chance to win with number 8 in the lineup . He is the size of my 13 year old daughter .

If it was Tampa we were playing, different story .

Boston series will require physicality

Tell me I’m wrong, would love to hear this.

Who is Ecklund? Everyone keeps referencing him, and I can’t find out who this is anywhere .

Thank you

(My assumption is that it is David Mackin in women’s clothing. am I close? )

He really is bad . just watch him on ANY defensive play . Literally 8/ 10 times he looks bad . Don’t look at the stretch pass or a play when he joins he rush! We get it, he has some offensive upside . I get it!

If he was there to play that role and had a strong stay at home d partner, maybe there could be a case made for him.

Here are some comparable players to Gardiner (not in style of play, but overall value. there are a million different ways to value these guys) :

D. Schlemko
J. Dotchman
M. Kempny
C. Ruhwedel

There are a couple of guys in my sons team who are comparable . there is this one kid, Leoni, he’s 17 and plays guys into the boards, plays the pass on a 2-on-1 . basic stuff that you learn in your first year as a D man

Maybe Gards will figure it out before he retires . not sure how he made the NHL as a D man . not sure why some of you talk about him like a top 6 D . maybe a number 7 on a really bad defensive team

I heard his dad still comes in the dressing room and toes his skates .
