St. Louis Paroyko

Toronto brown first 2019 Timashov Lindgren

I don't think it's enough but those are the chips Toronto can move easily.

The two pieces I don't want to move are Kapanan and Johnson. These two players can be offered 3 yr deals in offseason. Johnson is more tricky as he is eligible for arbitaction .

Be very interesting to see when leafs are firing on all cylinders how good they can be.

Keeping this team together isn't going to be easy

Leafs trade brown and 1st 2019

Black hawks Henri jokiharju

Leafs must trade Marleau to kings after July 1 he will accept it near his home.

Hope you can get Kapanen 3 years 4.5 million

Johnson 3 years 3.5 million

And hope Rosen and liljehren are good defenders next season


1.) 14 Dec 2018 03:56:24
That first trade is highway robbery David. Jokiharju is doing absolutely fantastic. He’s got to be considered a Calder candidate. On pace for 30 points, with a 55% cf, and 0 +/ - on a porous Chicago team, he’s been a real bright spot for a team that is rapidly becoming irrelevant. The cost to pry him out of Chicago may be out of our reach. You got to think he’s going to be the backbone of the rebuild.

We are stuck with Marleau. All the bleached blondes with fake boobs in California won’t get him to waive to play for LA. He’s been there and done that.

Rosen really standing tall this year in AHL. Between him and Dermott, the decision to just let Gardiner walk after season’s end must be getting easier by the day for Dubas.

Looking at the roster, Zaitsev and Marleau are the two contracts that really stand out. I don’t think Marleau will be going anywhere, but what are your thought so on Zaitsev David? Is it possible we dump him on somebody? And what kind of return do you think we could anticipate? I know you are an astute observer. I value your opinion quite highly actually. Wish you would contribute a little more often again though. You sorta seem to be an irregular on the forum these days.

I agree my Chicago trade is a reach. but using brown and a first round pick to bring back a young defencemen with term is what I’m looking for. Moving Zaitsev I’m all for it and I suppose if you could move David clarkson you can move anyone.

Back to Marleau his home is in SanJOSE. Sending him back to SAN JOSE isn’t a option as even though his salary will only be a million plus his cap hit with be 6.5. Don’t rule out LA a perfect fit they need to sell some false hope to their fan base and a cheap Marleau helps them. Marleau might want to relocate his family back to California so it might work out let’s hope.

Whatever happens leafs must hold onto Kapanan and Johnsson few more seasons espially Kapanan who maybe better than nylander we will see. LEAFSGM you’re the one one than can find that ideal defencemen to leafs for BROWN and a first 2019. Your much better at this than I am cheers my friend happy holidays.


3.) 14 Dec 2018 13:24:28
You keep forgetting Hyman as part of the trade offer.

Hyman + Brown + 1st for Manson and Ritchie. That fills two issues Grit and defense and increasing salaries by $1 MM.

Zaitsev + Lilygren for Mayfield.


4.) 14 Dec 2018 16:01:12
Lol. I’m not better at anything David. None of these trades will ever become reality. I just happen to float a few more proposals than you is all.

LA is in a world of hurt. I think they are tight against the cap as well, so Leafs would need to take salary back if we send them Marleau (assuming he waives) .

If Kapanen remains beside Matthews, it wouldn’t surprise me to see him put up numbers similar to Nylander’s. We should be able to sign him much cheaper as well. Would love to keep both him and Johnsson on the team. Their speed alone makes them highly effective.

You have a happy holiday too David. Don’t drink too much egg nog. Lol.

Leafs trade 1st round pick 2019

Flyers trade wayne Simmons

Leafs trade brown

Oilers benning

Leafs need to get tougher Boston Washington and Tampa seem much tougher than leafs are


1.) 12 Dec 2018 21:58:43
I remember you saying this last year too David, and everyone laughed at you. Then Boston spanked us in the playoffs and everyone started singing a different tune.

What do you think about Lucic if we could get Edmonton to retain some salary? How much would you be willing to chance on paying Lucic now?


2.) 12 Dec 2018 22:24:30
I would be fine with these, although trading the 1st is tough, we get what we need.


3.) 12 Dec 2018 22:47:06
Rather have Reaves at a fixed rate for three years.


4.) 12 Dec 2018 23:47:53
I’m ok with both trades, although I kind of see Benning as like a short term solution until Liljgren is ready, and I guess we could keep him at a low contract so it would help with the cap issue. I don’t mind that one

The Simmonds one I’m ok with as well, but I don’t know if Philly does it unless they really want to make a move before Dec 19th. I just think they would ask for more.

Leafs brown

Oilers benning

Defence is where leafs are going to save money next season looks like this

Reilly zaitsev
Dermott liljegren
Rosen ozhiganov

They need another solid cheap guy in benning


1.) 11 Dec 2018 10:55:17
Easy and simple. not a bad minor deal. Babs may fight for this trade to not go down.

I like it anyhow. not that that means anything. lol.


2.) 11 Dec 2018 16:26:01
Something like this makes sense. We need a plug RHD. If Hainsey isn’t coming back, then a guy like Benning is good choice. Low level move trading from position of strength to address a position of weakness. Hate to see Brown go, but he’s overpaid for his position and really, he deserves a better shot somewhere else.

Good proposal Mackin. It’s the most realistic one i’ve seen in a while anyway.


3.) 11 Dec 2018 19:07:18
Gardiner for Montour or Gudas or Pulock as well.

don't do a JVR and Bozak again this year.


4.) 11 Dec 2018 20:34:41
A trade like the one David proposed seems very possible. The Leafs probably need to move put brown if 34, 16 and kappy and johnsson are goinh to stay. The Leafs have enough lower tier defensemen to ice a solid 3rd pair, they just need another top 4 guy who fits. Benning looks like a good target, though i could just as easily see the Leafs go for a low-cost veteran free agent to act as a stopgap until liljegren is ready.

Leafs brown

Oilers benning


Marchment and grundstrom are close to being ready March net 6-4 200lbs plus a bit nasty. Leafs can add defencemen without subtracting much at all.


1.) 26 Nov 2018 01:54:05
Love it. Brown's got to go if the Leafs want to resign any of Kapanen/ Johnsson/ Lindholm/ Ozhiganov. After brining in Benning what would your lineup look like on D?


2.) 26 Nov 2018 02:03:46
Yeah, a real deal. a solid defensive forward for a solid D. both teams get what they need. simple. thankyou.


3.) 26 Nov 2018 03:15:21
Do we really need Benning though David? He’s a good depth defenseman, but we have lots of those guys. I guess one more won’t hurt. Really like Brown. Hate to see him go. If you think this is good trade, then sure, why not? I’m not against it. Depth forward for depth defensman.

You can’t trade liljegren his 3 year entry level is going to be very handy. Leafs are setting it up that they save massive mo eyes on defence next season

Reilly Zaitsev
Dermott liljegren
Rosen Ozhiganov

Trade chips 4 young defenceman 1st 2019 Conner brown.

I agree with leafsgm on this one. Lei o looks to stay in lineup even after Nylander and Matthews return. He works well on second power play unit.

Leafsgm

When the big two return and it may take 2 weeks b4 nylander suits up due to fitness. Who is going out of lineup GAUTHIER i think is out for sure. Which puts LINDHOLM at 4th center. So who else comes out BROWN ENNIS OR LEIVO.

Nylander back this week he maybe flying over the Atlantic now. if Johnson is rising from the dead this team even looks more scary. Who sits out
Let’s look lines

Kapanan Matthews nylander
Hyman Tavares marner
Marleau kadri Johnson
Levo gauthier Lindholm
Ennis

I think we need to move brown. He has the most value of all the 4th line options.

All signs are nylander stays. What happens off season anyone guess but he will sigh a contract and play Toronto soon.
