If we aren't going to get rid of marleaus contract this offseason we are going to need to trade willie. Obviously if we trade willie we want a defenseman back. Ideally I like pesce Parayko Ristolainen tanev Myers but I'm unsure if st.louis Vancouver or Winnipeg would be willing to part with them. I think nylander for Ristolainen straight up would be a great trade for both teams.

Patty-Matt's-kappy = 6.25+12.75+3=22mil
Hym-tav-marn = 2.25+11+8.75=22mil
Lindholm-kadri-brown 1.5+4.5+2=8 mil
Leivo-Gauthier-Ennis 1+750k+750k=2.5mil

Rielly-Ristolainen = 5+5.5=10.5mil
Gardiner-zaitsev 5+4.5=9.5mil
Dermott-Ozhiganov 1+1=2mil
Freddy=5 mil
Sparks=1 mil
6 mil
Kessel 1mil

Overall 54.5+22mil+6mil+1mil
=83.5mil which is cutting it close but we could let gardiner walk and sign a cheaper bottom pairing LHD for 2-3 mil and let Dermott become the second behind rielly.
The year after marleau comes off the books + cap continues to go up allows us to sign bridge players hyman Dermott and kapanen which we would have about 10-15mil to get all signed and we would have Lilly and Sandin close to NHL ready.

Dubas.....make it happen

You are missing three players totaling another $2 MM, you will have to take it out of MM and AM AND kAPANENE and the third liine. Where is Johnsson.

2.) 17 Oct 2018 17:27:41
They can keep Marleau - they have some very smart and well paid people whose job it is to figure out contracts and the cap. I trust them far more than a nobody like you.

3.) 17 Oct 2018 17:27:45
It is unlikely that Buffalo will trade Ristolainen, especially not to a division rival
The only defenceman they have behind him is Dahlin, so no chance.

4.) 17 Oct 2018 17:50:23
@Boopy and @heatdreamer

Gardiner is the player that would have to be removed. Insert Liljegren, Sandin (or Holl), Johnsson, and a plug

Depending on how many points he gets, Giveaway is likely to get an offer exceeding the $5M proposed here anyway.

5.) 17 Oct 2018 18:33:42

can we sign giveaway this for going forward and trade him this year and when could we do so. Than what is a signed Gardiner worth.

6.) 17 Oct 2018 18:34:08
It would be hard to watch gardiner walk for nothing considering how our defense is currently. As much as people may hate gardiner him and zaitsev eat up 22-24 minutes a night usually while he produces a lot of assists. As much as we can say we have Lilly and Sandin coming up neither of them are guaranteed to be NHL players let alone solid top 4 guys. Ideally Lilly is ready for next year and slots in on the second pairing with Dermott behind zaitsev and the bottom pair is something like Rosen and Ozhiganov but even still our defense is lacking one more solid top 4 guy to sure it up.

7.) 17 Oct 2018 18:59:52
Gardiner will be wanting long term and NTC. A sign and trade for a player his age is unlikely. We won’t get the return we want.

We don’t have to let Gardiner walk. We can trade him before deadline for futures. I would prefer dumping Giveaways for anything at this point. However given Leafs recent past history, I think that’s unlikely. Dubas won’t risk jeopardizing our playoff hopes. If he’s feels it doesn’t immediately increase our odds at winning the cup, he won’t make a move.

Realistic trade for Parayko that no leafs fan will want to give up

Tor- nylander 2nd carrick

St.louis- Parayko

Trades that could happen not involving Willie (but St. Louis said they want offense and Willie is the only piece we could offer them that could make a big enough impact on their team offensively)

Tor- liljegren 1st carrick

St. Louis- Parayko


Tor- Sandin kapanen 1st carrick

St. Louis- Parayko

Parayko is a young big right handed defenseman and St. Louis is not going to trade him for equal value they are going to want more than what he is probably worth to consider parting with him. Imo it's not worth it to go after him as I am high on our 2 defensive prospects and think we are in no rush to give away the farm to "go all in" as the team is already very good and will only get better with time. For those worried the team will get significantly worse once the pay day comes in yes they may lose depth players but everyone in their top 6 will be signed once the big 3 are signed rielly zaitsev are signed long term Dermott will be an rfa for multiple years Andersen is signed long term. The team is in no rush to go all in.


1.) 04 Aug 2018 16:49:19
The 3rd one is the only one I accept.

2.) 04 Aug 2018 21:40:21
I doubt St. Louis is looking to move Parayko. However, if they were going to move him, the only trade I could see them considering is the first one. I can't see anything in the other 2 that would entice them to move Parayko.

Leafs: Tyler Myers

Jets: Zibanejad 25% retained

Rangers: 1st tor 2019 Jeremy Bracco 3rd tor 2019

Rangers get a B+ prospect and a pick jets trade from an area of strength and a player who will probably walk at the end of the year due to impending cap crunch with Laine wheeler and conners coming up and acquire Zibanejad at a cheaper tag to strength their weaker center core after Stastny and leafs acquire the top pairing RHD they need giving up a fair bit but what's to be expected. A trade I could see realistically happening that benefits all teams.


1.) 22 Jul 2018 01:22:29
With Winnipeg's cap crunch there could be a chance they want to get marc stall who's still signed for a couple years to replace Myers. But overall it looks like a sound trade.

2.) 22 Jul 2018 01:26:55
I think you'll need to wait until the Trouba situation is solved. If it ends up only being a one year deal for Trouba, then they likely hold onto Myers and extend him at the end of the year.

3.) 22 Jul 2018 04:03:07
absolutely not.

Jets make out like bandits. Rangers and Leafs get screwed.

If you’re going to put up a lopsided proposal, at least make it one in favor of Leafs.

4.) 22 Jul 2018 14:21:02
Leafs GM how so? Leafs only give up a 1st 3rd and a prospect who is years away for the solid big top pairing d man they need. The pick is likely a high 20s pick and the 3rd in the 80s as well as bracco who could be good or not. Rangers get more futures for a guy who has struggles staying healthy and has put up a best 51 points. Winnipeg gets a solid 3rd/ 2nd linecenter in Zibanejad at a good price I like the deal from everyone’s perspective. Seems like you don’t like any deal if they A aren't yours or B aren't biased towards the leafs.

5.) 22 Jul 2018 14:53:45
You could potentially even throw the 3rd then leave give to new York, and instead give it to Winnipeg,

6.) 22 Jul 2018 15:17:39
Jets get a guy that scored 27 goals last year and is signed for five more years at a reasonable cap hit in exchange for UFA Myers. That is a huge tilted towards Jets. All Rangers get in return is, in your own words “1st, 3rd, and a prospect who is years away. the pick is likely high 20s and the 3rd is in the 80s as well as Bracco who could be good or not”. So tell me, why would Rangers make this trade? How is this not unfair to Rangers?

And again, why would Leafs make this trade for one year rental in Myers?

This trade heavily favours the jets and fleeces Rangers especially, and isn’t favourable to Leafs either.

Sorry Poopy. No need to be defensive. I don’t always disagree with everyone’s proposals. Just the ones like this that are they bviously unacceptable to everyone but a Jets fan.

Leafs aren't going to trade gardiner or let him walk. He has amazing advanced stats had a great year last year and is a solid defenseman. Dubas is a numbers guy and he won't trade away a guy as good advanced stats wise as gardiner. Gardiner does so many little things right it's just his colossal mistakes that make him look bad every so often. That being said the leafs need a top 4 RD.

To leafs: Montour

To Anaheim: Kapanen Leivo 2nd 2019

Montour is going to be very good I would goes as far as to offer a first over the 2nd to make it work or nylander in a deal. He lit up the AHL for 3 years then had an amazing first year. He is exactly what the leafs need. The reason Anaheim would give him up is he needs a contract and they don't have a ton of money to play with as kase needs a deal and players next year need money including Gibson. With their stellar defense already giving this up for 2 young wingers (a weak spot) and a pick to replenish. This allows Anaheim to go for one last shot with perry and getzlaf for the next 5 years.

Rielly-Montour Pp- 1 gardiner 2rielly
Gardiner-zaitsev Pk- 1 zaitsev rielly
Dermott-carrick. 2 Dermott Montour

Tor:1st 2018 Carrick Bracco

LA: Alec Martinez

Tor:Martin McElhinney


Tor:Nathan Horton 3rd 2019

Arizona:7th 2019

Marleau gets traded next offseason to free up the space needed for marner and Mathews.

Move willy to center and sign him 7milx8
Johnsson 2milx5

Sign John Carlson 8.5milx8




Mathews signs 11x8
Marner signs 8.5x8
Kap signs 3x5
Dermott signs 3x5

Top line- 16.25mil
Second line-15mil (with Johnsson as replacement for marleau the year after)
Third line-11 mil
4th line-4 mil

1st pairing-13.5mil
2nd pairing-8mil
3rd pairing-7.5mil

Goalie-6 mil

Overall-81.25mil in 2 years which is around where the cap will be and I high balled the big 3 a bit in money.

What happened to Hainsey?

If L. A. would take that trade, Toronto should consider it. We don’t lose anything off the current roster and being in a solid RHD in the process.

Not sure if NYI would want McBackup (or Martin) . McEllhinney is pretty old. We do have Picard or even Sparks we could offer them and maybe get a better pick instead of 6th. I know they are doing us a favour taking Martin back, but would like to see some kind of return if possible.

It wouldn’t surprise me if we see Marleau trades back to SAN Jose final year of his contract, so he can retire a Shark (as he should) . I guess it depends on how well he performs for us next year. If he does as good as he did last season, we could probably get a decent return for him.

These are nice safe depth trades and signings that would I prove the current roster. I like the defense you have suggested, though I still wonder what happened to Hainsey?

2.) 12 Jun 2018 12:24:28
Oops sorry hainsey is the 7th d man in 2018-19 then gone sorry.

3.) 12 Jun 2018 12:37:23
Don’t understand the Horton trade. Why give up an asset to get rid of a guy who does not impact the cap?

4.) 13 Jun 2018 00:21:06
Why would you make Hainsey our 7th defenseman? Seems like a real waste. If your not going to play him, you should trade him for assets.

5.) 13 Jun 2018 03:48:59
$5 million a year for Kapanen and Johnsson doesn't make any sense. They are both middle 6 players coming off their ELCs.
Johnsson: 3 years at $3 million a year.
Kapanen: 3 years at 3.5 million a year.
If either one wants more, trade them.

a top 9 forward a solid nhl defensman and a late first wouldn't be able to get pesce out of carolina? I would jump all over that if i was a team under .500 looking for a shakeup.

leafs win this too hard take out dermott put in gardiner and a second and they would most likely consider that.




this team looks scary

but these monsters rarely every happen so more realistic nylander 2nd for larsson and pul.

Why are you so focused on replacing kadri? He signed for 3 more years and will probably re sign I just don’t understand it.
