How do leafs make a top defence for the next number of years

Leafs trade nylander johnson

Avalanche Makar

That would give them core

Reilly zaitsev
Dermott makar
Rosen liljegren

That would be potential all star defence in the future with total cost certainty

Leafs will not be able to sign expensive defensive help and they will not be drafting high for another 10 plus seasons

1.) 11 Oct 2018 01:55:37
Like usual, I fully agree with you David.

Trading Nylander is our quickest and easiest way to lock up a defenseman. I also agree that a younger highly rated prospect is better than someone a little older who is going to cost more. Makar is as good of a sure bet as they come. Even more highly rated than Liljegren, who we all agree is going to be a real stud. Avs are loaded at RHD and with Timmins in the pipeline as well (who is even more highly rated depending on which site and analyst you read), Avs can afford to send someone our way. It would have to be either Makar or Timmins. Along with Liljegren, Leafs would be set for the next decade.

Nylander holding out was the best thing that could have happened for Leafs. We just have to trade Nylander soon before he erodes in value and we won’t be able to get a top tier prospect player any more.

2.) 12 Oct 2018 04:32:59
Nylanders value won't erode. Go into March he will settle on 6.5m and we see how the defense is around deadline day. Then spend to get a rental defenseman. Not many top options available tho. See where we go in the playoffs, surely past the first round. Then trade nylander for a good stud secured right shot dman to replace hainsley.

Leafs sign rick Nash

Leafs trade nylander Johnson

Columbus werenski

If nylander isn't enough you add Johnson I predict Columbus gets off to a very slow start

1.) 09 Oct 2018 20:08:24
That would be 1 year deal Nash 650k salary 4.4 million signing bonus that will get his attention and maybe win cup with leafs

Marleau Matthews kapanan
Hymen Tavares marner
Nash kadri brown
Leivo lindholm ennis

Trade chips nylander johnson to fix defence.

2.) 09 Oct 2018 22:56:42
Think Nash would still be willing to play David? He must have had offers and didn’t accept. He would need a pretty lengthy conditioning stint too maybe. I don’t know if he’s been practicing or working out or anything. I know he’s a professional athlete and most these guys are driven to stat in shape even after their career is over (Brett Hull being a major exception lol) . But exactly what does Nash have in him at this point is my concern.

He doesn’t need the money. And we could use that cash for another ringer that is already playing. If Nash wants to be part of the team, we should offer him league minimum only. No multi-million signing bonus. If he tanks, Dubas looks real bad his first year on the job. I like Nash. Very consistent throughout his career. But I don’t think $5M for an older, hurting Rick Nash is part of the Shanaplan.

3.) 10 Oct 2018 02:23:50

On Nash we will know soon Kaplan must feel he has died and went to heaven give him 70 pats this season. Nylander has screwed himself.

4.) 10 Oct 2018 04:48:30
Nylander holding out is the best thing that could have happened for Kapanen, who is performing extremely well. Screw Nylander. We definitely don’t need him. He made himself look like a damn fool now.

Matthews and Tavares look like they are going to get 50 goals each this year. Would be absolutely wonderful if one of those guys win the Richard Trophy this year. Maybe a little more hardware to go along with it.

Leafs trade nylander

Avalanche Makar

Maybe by second half of season LILJEGREN AND MAKAR are ready to join leafs.

The math no longer works for nylander . Kapanan has speed skill and now he is fixture on that first line. If he dominates every game nylander is needed less.

Nylander would then be with kadri and your not paying nylander over 7 million if that's the number to play on third line.

The chips are starting to fall in leaf land and I don't see how Nylander comes back. Kapanan will need contract next year but on one season with Matthews he won't command more than 4.5 and that's If he is totally dominant.

KAPANAN puts up 70 pts he gets 3 years at 4.5 million

1.) 09 Oct 2018 02:02:50
Kapanen could be two years at $3.5 MM. Than extend him out.

2.) 09 Oct 2018 02:37:30
I would think Liljegren and Makar both will be playing NHL full time by the end of this season if they continue to progress at their current rate. Would be a very nice trade if we could do it. I also like Timmons as he’s just as highly rated, and on some lists rated higher, than Makar.

Leafs trade nylander

Buffalo Ristolainen

Leafs have two holes on right side

Haisey slipping
Russian marrincin holl are not good enough

Nylander just lost his job to kapanen

Does kapanan put up 61 pts with Matthews absolutely

1.) 08 Oct 2018 05:20:16
Ristolainen would look good on Leafs. An already impressive 40 point player would likely hit 50+ on Leafs high octane offense team. Nylander gets sent to the bottom feeding Buffalo Sabers, and Dubas just made almost the exact same trade Sakic did with O’Reilly for Zadorov.

Very good David. I like it. Kapanen is fast and very talented and could probably slot in beside Matthews and assuming he learns to pass, all of a sudden he’s our next 60 point winger.

2.) 08 Oct 2018 10:44:34

This is working out well nylander sitting. We getting long look at other players


KAPANAN high energy player more than nylander is now lined up with Matthews perfect fit

Tavares and Matthews are lethal those two set

kadri line not offensive at all but brown is doing great packcheaking. I’m not seeing enough from LEIVO

JOHNSON reilly slow out of the gate buried on 4th line

LINDHOLM and ENNIS are what they are 4 th line players


don’t know how he will hold up only playing back to back games


3.) 08 Oct 2018 16:07:42
Defence just a plain mess. Ristolainen definetly would help. great trade proposal.

4.) 08 Oct 2018 16:14:47
Nylander just lost his job to Kap? Do you even pay attention to the Leafs? Babcock has criticized him so how, exactly, has he taken Nylander's job?

5.) 08 Oct 2018 17:13:35

Babcock quote if kapanan brings it every night he can play with top players

Last night kapanan brought it on let’s see how he does in Dallas.

6.) 08 Oct 2018 18:09:41
Reat first game from kapanen on Matthew's wings. Nylander is probably out looking for a new team patch for his luggage because ig kappy keeps it up willie won't be needed.

Looking at teams that struggle early

Edmonton trade NURSE


nothing has changed in EDMONTON except mcdavid will be a bit better

Pressure will mount fast

1.) 07 Oct 2018 03:58:23
I like it David.

Similar to the O’Reilly for Zadorov trade. I’m all for it. We then dump Gardiner for a return before he walks.

Everyone saying we need a big strong heavy hitter RHD, but it can just as easily work in reverse.

2.) 07 Oct 2018 06:32:39
Oilers add a 3rd or 4th Rd pick.

The better the tier of D the Leafs trade Nylander for the less the pick is. Nurse is not elite but solid. thus the 3rd or 4th Rd is added.

3.) 07 Oct 2018 16:20:33
Oilers don’t have enough cap space to do this.

Watching oilers jets game camera goes to charelli oilers losing 4 1 he looks terrified already. This guy will be ripe for the picking. Under pressure you never make good trades.

PANARIN and leafs can’t resign him that makes sense. The team to watch is Edmonton the only player scoring Mcdavid . The oilers could be 1 and 8 in a week. Oilers can’t afford nylander unless they ditch NURSE plus another contract. Desperation will hit them in a week.

God was on Vegas side last year nothing went wrong so expect a big fall. Borderline for playoffs but ahead of Edmonton.

Leafs gm

Nylander will be dealt leafs can’t afford what he wants. Plus now we have Kapanan. I still get big headache when I think we didn’t draft DEBRINCAT. But I guess we have enough assets up front and it’s looking that ENNIS is odd man out. Let’s hope Johnson starts to rev it up

Oilers trade NURSE

Leafs trade nylander

Oilers are in trouble already just barely beating RANGERS watch their next 6 games.
