Carolina Pesce

Toronto Johnson Timashov

LeafsGM lilgegren wouldn't suit Carolina they need forwards

Muzzin Reilly
Gardener Pesce
Dermott Zaitsev

This is why zaitsev needs to go off-season you can't pay a 6 th defencenen 4.5 million

So this year you have much improvement on defence and you only have lost Johnson

1.) 31 Jan 2019 22:48:42
I left out hainsey this gardener and Zaire’s by thing is a mess because they are liabilities. So try to move zairsev at deadline if you can get Pesce.

2.) 31 Jan 2019 23:20:53
Well David, to be honest, I’d rather keep Liljegren and trade Johnsson for Pesce anyway. I think a trade centered around either Johnsson or Kapanen for Pesce is a great idea. Certainly most analysts I’ve read seem to think so.

Carolina definitely needs forwards. Especially with the almost certain departure of Ferland. As all Leafs fans know, Johnsson is really an incredible player. An elite skater with soft hands, he’s a true talent any team would love to get hold of.

It’s a bit more of a gamble retaining Liljegren as he is unproven, while Johnsson obviously has the ability to contribute at the NHL level, and even be a top six player. But we don’t have the depth in terms of prospects for Liljegren’s position as we do for Johnsson’s.

Not sure how I feel about losing both Johnsson and Timashov though. That depletes our LW depth quite a bit. With next season being Marleau’s last year as a Leaf, we would now be faced with replacing both Johnsson and Marleau. Maybe instead of Timashov, I wonder if Carolina would accept a pick to go along with Johnsson? What do you think the value of Timashov in terms of a pick is David?

Hope you are staying warm in this frigid weather. supposed to stay cool for at least another day Keep safe my friend.

3.) 31 Jan 2019 23:27:47
Never know what Hurricanes r thinking considering their owner but Kapenen is their target so probably no. Timashov has no trade value.

4.) 01 Feb 2019 01:02:05
It sounds like the only way the leafs can make a trade is if they are able to still have 3 mil in cap space due to performance bonuses that’s why a player like ferland makes sense he’s on a cheap contract leafs need to look at moving brown Zaitzev or gardiner.

5.) 01 Feb 2019 16:22:50
Zaitsev has got to go, and Dubas knows that. The leafs cannot afford his 4.5 million next year.



19 Jan 2019 15:00:17
Off season after July 1

Leafs trade zaitsev and nylander

Columbus zack werenski

Maybe he could play right side

Leaf Gm

You probably have a better fit 4 leafs in your hip pocket that could handle the cap space of nylander and zaitsev. Leafs could take back 1.5 million on Zaitsev to wash down the trade

1.) 19 Jan 2019 16:37:57
I think you have it right already though David. Colorado is probably the best team in the league regarding cap space, and they have plenty of RHD to spare. Another team that might work is Montreal. Plenty of cap space, and a surplus of high quality RHD themselves, including prospects Brook and Juulsen.

Makar obviously would be my first choice. But young Brook looks very impressive. Not an early pick like Makar, he might be available for a little cheaper than Makar but still end up doing just as good.

I always love your posts David. Always good ideas. Hope you are having a great weekend. You watching the games at all?

2.) 19 Jan 2019 19:02:18
I ALWAYS WATCH THE GAMES. Columbus are losing their big two so they will have to make splash to appeal to a fickle fam base. Columbus love saving cash so to get nylander 5 years at 5.5 million after July 1 would thrill them. Then leafs shave off 1.5 million on Zaitsev. Haven’t looked closely what apples leafs could steal off COLUMBUS tree but I’m sure there are a few juicy ones.

3.) 19 Jan 2019 22:55:21
Zaitsev + Nylander + Brown +2 Nd for Savard + Anderson + Werenski.

4.) 20 Jan 2019 05:17:21

Columbus has Carlsson and Milano. They aren’t working out so well for them and are in the minors again. Columbus has to be thinking about trading them by now.

They have a real good goalie in Korpisalo, currently backing up Bobrovsky. If goalie Bob re-signs, we might be able to make a play for Korpisalo as our replacement for Andersen in a couple years. At minimal, he’s better than Sparks.

Another hot prospect is Abramov. He isn’t NHL tested yet, but really lit up junior and is performing well in AHL.

A couple other longer shots are Robertson, Bittner, Peeke, Stenlund. They may be worth taking a chance on for a low pick or fringe prospect.

With the exception of Abramov, I kinda think most of Columbus prospects are middling. All the good ones are on the team already. And they are doing well. The duds are in the minors waiting for another chance. It may never happen in Columbus. So opportunity may be there for Leafs to cherry pick a couple decent prospect players and hopefully have them turn it around in a better managed Leafs development program.

Leafs trade Greg mckegg

Florida trade Hyman

Just think Hyman is looked up two more years after this one. That was a steal to say the leased. How long are the leafs going to put up with nylander

Leafs trade nylander

Avalanche Makar

After July 1

1.) 18 Jan 2019 06:25:06
I still like this proposal best of all David. It just makes so much sense for both teams. Maybe not this year, as Makar won’t be contributing to the team right away, and I doubt Dubas will make any trade that doesn’t immediately improve our chances at winning it all this year.

Makar is such a good young player. Very highly rated. He might just be the highest rated defense prospect not in the NHL right now. He still has another year in NCAA, so wouldn’t be on the team until at least 2020. Maybe we should hang on to Nylander for another year, as he still contributes to Leafs chances at winning the cup. Make a try for Makar next year off season. This way Leafs still have Nylander for two cup runs. Gives Nylander another year to turn it around too. If he scores 20+ goals and hits 70 points, Av’s might just make this trade. They are desperate for secondary scoring. Maybe they go out first round again this year and look for changes after? I don’t know.

2.) 18 Jan 2019 13:27:07
Again I don’t think moving Hyman right now is the best option I’d like to see what he does this season and go from there and for the second trade I don’t mind it but Makar is a risk just due to he hasn’t even turned pro yet but saying that it might be a risk worth taking I’d say I have mixed feelings about it.



13 Jan 2019 19:31:32
Leafs made major deal summer. It's either kadri or nylander who goes.nylander must start showing star potential to stay.

Marleau will be dealt to either the ducks or kings. Gardener and Hainsey will walk.

Rosen and Moore both make leafs next season. Look for the next signing to be Johnson.

1.) 13 Jan 2019 19:50:50
If Nylander doesn’t start producing, it will be difficult to unload him. Even at $5.5M real monies payable, it’s still $6.9M cap hit, and right now he currently isn’t worth so much.

Now Kadri is a different story all together. He said not producing at the same level as the last two years, but he is still worth the $4.5M he makes. I can easily see Leafs taking a downgrade at 3C and trading Kadri for help in the back end. There’s no “promise not to trade him” crap like with Nylander. Dubas owes no loyalty to Kadri. And he is a damn good player that doesn’t appear to be used to his full potential buried on the third line, when it is clearly obvious he is much better as offensive minded 2C. Of course, we don’t have a spot for him higher in the lineups unless injury. So maybe a trade while we can still get a good haul for him might be a viable option.

2.) 13 Jan 2019 20:10:33
They need to rid themselves of Zaitsev as well and bring in 2 RHD from any 2 trades.

3.) 13 Jan 2019 20:13:57
Would prefer to #43 go over Willy. Have not been a big fan of his. Do not think you need 3 deep centers if #43 can get you blueliner.

Willy with Matthews is still going to be good going forward. Look at PITT with Crosby and Malikn and whoever in middle. COL in the day had Sakic and Forsberg and whoever.

#43's contract more valuable on trade market then Willy.

4.) 13 jan 2019 22:20:24

look at drouin trade some team will always feel the gates open once they get him. they will get tremendous value for nylander

also the team core is just getting better so they can move a big piece fix defence and be even better


whenever leafs feel they have surplus on right side they will move zaitsev. teams will want him believing he can do better for them.

5.) 13 Jan 2019 22:43:39
I agree with Hugo here I think it’s time to move kadri yes his contract is great but I think our defence is more of an issue right now

Kadri 1st Bracco for Hamilton.

6.) 14 Jan 2019 01:22:17
I think nylander better start producing soon, or things are going to get ugly again. He’s just making Dubas look so bad again right now.

Nylander can go the same way Drouin and O’Reilly were shown the door. He’s bringing in a lot of negative attention and frustration to the team again. Him and that damn contract have been nothing but a distraction all year. He has the potential to single handedly bring down the Leafs and destroy their chances for winning the cup. I am not over exaggerating. I honestly think Leafs should put him on third line beside Kadri permanently for the remainder of the season and they can sink or swim together.



12 Jan 2019 14:25:15
Leafs Nylander

Avalanche Makar

Just wondering what leads could offer to get Makar in a deal

1.) 12 Jan 2019 15:12:22
Anything more than Nylander, and Leafs say no. Even Nylander is a lot to be paying for an unproven prospect player in collegiate, not even AHL or KHL.

Makar has all the makings of a real stud defenseman. Looking at the very impressive performance of other rookie defensemen as highly rated as Makar, it seems like a pretty safe bet this kid is going to be the real deal. I hate the thought of trading a player of Nylander’s caliber for a prospect, but we are talking about one of the highest rates prospext RHD in the world.

2.) 12 Jan 2019 15:14:21
Depends on what colorado values nylander as. i say its a great deal. value is pretty close. although leafs may want to add a player who helps this teams defence for this years cup run for nylander. I say screw it and get Makar. great topic for discussion.

3.) 12 Jan 2019 16:36:24
This doesn’t get done til after July 1 the team that receives nylander would be getting him @ 5.5 million for 5 years

Leafs would then have

Reilly makar
Dermott liljegren
Sandin Rosen

As very cheap players going forward.

They could add off season. To Zaitsev Olgahanov another good defencemen on short term deal.

4.) 12 Jan 2019 17:15:28
Add Ottawa’s first and it’s a go for me.

Leafs Gm over 5 million offer sheet Kapanan 4 first round picks in offer sheet. How high would leafs go to match. But I don’t think team will give up four first rounders 4 him.

Florida made great move with Pittsburgh cleared dollars 4 next season. Any Ducks you want off the scrape heap buddy and is Sparks worst backup in league. That third goal on his knees over his shoulder that’s what is whispered around the league. AHL sharpshooters are not in same League as NHL snippers.

Zaitsev has to go even leafs take back 1.5 million

Leafs have loads of cap space if the trade or let walk these players


That’s nearly 25 million out the door that are not contributing much.
