Leafs trade muzzin

LA KINGS trade grundstrom

LeafsGM

I'm already hating leafs traded grundstrom this could have been a huge blunder. Leafs are really short on left wing as well thoughts


1.) 27 Mar 2019 09:56:26
I don't get this. Left wing Right wing, players don't care, they are all over the ice anyway. It doesn't matter where you line up anymore. All I hear is Tor. are weak on LW, why, because Marner, Nylander, and Kappy play (line up) on the Right side. There is too much discussion around Left side Right side, if you have talent you will play wherever the coach puts you and trust me, wingers don't care.


2.) 28 Mar 2019 11:22:32
David you are so wrong bud. Muzzin has fit in perfectly for the Leafs. They just actually need another D stud at RD now

Muzzin for the leafs 27GP 5G 11A, pretty solid! Yes Grundstrom has 4G in 9 games, but that is too small of a sample size to think about. I did like Grundstrom as well, but the Leafs valued Sandin and Liljegren more.

Forgot leafs gm

Tie zaitsev to railroad tracks trade him as well.

Leafs Gm

If you have to keep Marleau it’s ok leafs are short on left wingers leave Bracco in minors next year. These moves up top save tons of cap space we need true number one right hand shot defencemen. name him leafs gm because we have the pieces to make the trade

Nylander brown for excellent number one right handed defencemen young and with term.


3.) 17 Mar 2019 16:06:20
Yes Nylander is overpaid but he’s also been one of our best players in the last two months him and Matthews are gaining momentum and if we get them back to where they were that’s a great one two punch our issue lies with the 3rd line kadri has actually suffered this year we really don’t have anyone to play with him I think it would be him we move he’s got a great contract and could be a number two center on most other teams the fact that our fourth line is playing better then our 3rd line shows how much disconnect there is between brown Marleau and kadri kadri can bring us a top 2 d or a high pick or good draft pick.


4.) 18 Mar 2019 01:09:09
What’s the matter with Hainsey? He’s leading the league in +/ -. Lol.

For Nylander + Brown + extras, I would like to see Leafs target a player such as Heiskenan or Chabot. Hanifin having a stellar breakout year in Calgary would be a nice
Ice score. McAvioy of course. Or am I overreaching here? I know a couple of these guys are not natural right hand shot. But when you are that good, it doesn’t really matter.

There’s so many outstanding young defensemen coming into their own right now. It’s exciting to see these kids breakout and really perform at such a high level at such a young age. I think this is the best crop of defensemen to enter the league in about 20 years. Maybe longer.

I agree with you David. Leafs have the pieces to make it happen if they want. I know Liljegren is going to be a star. But there’s no rule preventing us from having more than one right?

I know you are big in Makar David, is there anyone else you would like to see Leafs target?

Leafs GM

LEAFS MAY HAVE ANOTHER ONE IN PIPELINE. Mac Hollowell I don’t know how good a skater he is. Skating is what did in Andrew neilson but if Mac can skate maybe you add him to a core that is coming in Sandin and Liljegren. Let’s look at Nylander more closely let’s put him down as squat the first 20 games. So he basically has 22 points in last 44 games do we trade KADRI instead. Brown is gonzo end of this season for sure he doesn’t do enough for leafs where he is slotted. One other guy on this list has to go

Nylander marleau Kadri to me marleau must go after July 1 along with Zaitsev. Then leafs have fixed cap for a while they sign Kapanen Johnson Marner Ennis. The players gone are Gardiner Zaitsev Hainsey Marleau and brown.

Guys coming in Rosen Liljegren moore Korshkov Bracco. Then leafs have cap money to solve the parts that are not working in offseason. I’m really concerned BOSTON do away with TORONTO easier than they did last time.

Cheers leafsGM.


6.) 18 Mar 2019 17:00:36
Is Hollowell still leading OHL in scoring David? I think his size turns a lot of people off Hollowell, but he’s the same size as Spurgeon, who has done rather well for himself. He could be a real steal. Him and Sandin obviously have good history together. He looks like he’s got real potential. A top 6 of Reilly/ Liljegren Sandin/ Hollowell Dermott/ Rosen doesn’t sound too bad does it?

The only problem I see is that we are a couple years away from fielding that defense, and we have to hope all these guys work out as expected. I’m the meantime, we burn years of contention using plugs and gap fillers and Zaitsev. That doesn’t sound as appealing.

Which is why I think what you say here makes sense. Leafs have the pieces to make something happen now. Cap is tight next year and we still have Muzzin, but after next year we will have the mo eh we can afford a real 1RHD too.

I’d like to see them pull the trigger on a trade sooner. But I don’t think that happens. Which is better for us on this forum because it gives us more to talk about.


7.) 18 Mar 2019 17:22:39
Nylander last 24 games like almost 20 points

Who goes leafsgm nylander Kadri or Marleau one of those three plus brown and zaitsev need to go.


8.) 18 Mar 2019 18:29:31
I would say moving forward kadri is our best option to trade we can get a good return and shed cap I think we are stuck with Marleau brown is gone Zaitzev will be hard to move but he could be moved as good as ennis has been hard to believe they will keep him I’d have to say one of Johnsson or kapanen might be the odd ones out me personally I think it’s Johnsson he’s been great and he plays our weaker side but he’s 24 and Kappanen is 22 if the leafs could get kapanen to hit the net I think he could score 30 goals in a season just because his speed puts him in a position to do so idk I just don’t see them dealing Nylander yes right now his contract looks rough but down the road it will be fine leafs only need 1 rhd to play with Reilly and there are plenty of them out their that make under 5 mil a season.

Leafs still big mess

Leafs trade Nylander

Avalanche Makar

LeafsGM
I'm assuming Makar is ready to play next October in nhl. KORCHKOV is coming next season really crowded on right wing he has size. NYLANDER has no heart and desire to dig deep leafs are still big mess blue line and size up front


1.) 12 Mar 2019 12:21:34
Avalanche need scoring second line center.


2.) 12 Mar 2019 15:59:09
I don’t know David. At one point, I thought trading Nylander for Makar was a smart move too. Now I’m starting to have second thoughts on that. I’m allowed to change my mind. Makar still has another year of school, so won’t be in nhl next year. 2020/ 2021 season is earliest we will be seeing him. So making this trade now would weaken us, as we wouldn’t have anyone incoming to contribute for next season. And on top of it, Makar hasn’t played a single nhl game yet. He looks good playing Collegiate, but that’s a far lower level of hockey than nhl. Heck, ncaa isn’t even as high a compete level as AHL. Makar is doing well, sure, but I would like to see him play a few games at nhl level before trading a proven commodity like Nylander for him.

Colorado has high expectations for Makar, and for good reason. Looking at Makar’s comparables, the players he was drafted with same year, or just before or after him, guys like Heiskenan, Chabot, McAvoy, for example, all these guys were ranked similar to Makar, and all have performed magnificently. So its not a huge leap of imagination to think Makar is going to do the same.

I think Leafs are better off taking a wait and see approach. If Makar breaks a leg next year playing ncaa, or worse, and never returns to form, Dubas would have made a huge mistake. Best to be safe than sorry. Like I said, I’m hyped on Makar just as much as anyone. But a conservative approach is probably the better choice right now.


3.) 12 Mar 2019 16:10:28
Not only with the avs not trade Makar because they like him but they also can’t afford nylanders cap hit when you got rantenen to sign and zadorov.

Leafs trade marleau zaitsev after July 1 TIMASHOV BROOKS

LA KINGS TOFFOLI

leafs gm I don't know if kings will do this but they need young prospects. Marleau may sell some tickets and they only pay him 1 million

Leafs trade nylander

Carolina trades hamilton

Leafs let gardener hainsey walk

Leafs gm that fixes cap for a few more seasons and leafs are better thoughts


1.) 08 Mar 2019 00:44:31
Well starting with the kings trade Marleau wouldn’t agree to go there unless he retires and agrees to let Toronto trade his contract also July 1 Zaitzev gets a ntc which I’m sure he won’t want to go to a bottom feeder so brooks and tymashov is what your giving up the kings say no now for the second trade the leafs tried Nylander for Hamilton and they said no so I’m guess the answer is still no.


2.) 08 Mar 2019 03:06:39
Hey Mackin! How’s it going buddy? Freaking cold is getting to my brain. Lol. I don’t think L. A. would take on Marleau after having struck out with kovalchuk already. I know it’s only for a year and his total payable is $1M, but his cap hit is still $6.25. Add Zaitsev in, and that’s over $10M. Less toffoli at $4.6M and LA aid still taking on over $6M in salary. I can’t see a rebuilding team doing that. Toffoli is a good player. He’s worth more than the oldest player in the league who is a pending UFA, a cap dump, and a couple B-prospects. I really think for LA to make this trade you would have to cough up at least one of Liljegren or Sandin. It’s just not enticing enough otherwise. It doesn’t make LA any better for next year, and handicaps them making any moves because of cap space.

Toffoli is a real gem. One of the few players in LA that is actually worth his pay. He’d make a great Leaf, but the cost of acquiring him may be higher than Dubas is willing to pay.

As always, stay safe my friend. Very cold out there tonight. The weatherman says this is the end of winter this year. Let’s hope he’s right.


3.) 08 Mar 2019 23:16:30
Leafs Gm

Your actually correct on this one although I still say Marleau moves to Southern California in off season. Both ducks and kings are rebuilding and when you add a 6.5 million dollar Marleau it’s the grand illusion for the fans that they are trying to win. But Marleau only costs 1 million

This Zaitsev guy has to go he is messing up the leafs depth chart in terms of production

Let’s say nylander for Hamilton
Let’s say Liljegren makes team

Reilly Hamilton
Muzzin liljegren
Rosen dermott

Zaitsev can’t be a bottom pairing guy at 4.5 million and he isn’t good enough to be a number 4 thoughts.


4.) 09 Mar 2019 05:01:24
Nylander can get us better than Hamilton. He can easily bring a real and true 1RHD with term left on his contract, and who has no question marks surrounding him. Subban maybe? Or Theodore? Klingberg? Gostisbehere? There are lots of better defensemen than Hamilton we can get for sure.

If we get blown out first round of playoffs again and defense is the reason why, I fully expect a big off season trade. Muzzin is good, but not a true 1RHD.


5.) 09 Mar 2019 16:12:13
Leafsgm

Boston look good no question but should leafs get this togeather look out.

Nylander has to start really playing throw in Tavares a better Johnson and Kapanen plus Matthews and Marner are a year older. MUSSIN added to back end leafs win series.

Leafs trade brown bracco

Canes trade Ferland

Leafsgm

I hate to do this one but if you want Ferland this is minimum price thoughts


1.) 24 Feb 2019 04:32:30
I agree with everything u r saying here. i feel what u r feeling also.


2.) 24 Feb 2019 06:10:18
Hey Mackin. How’s it going? I love your post. I don’t necessarily agree with it, but that’s ok. Personally, I don’t think the Leafs should mortgage the future for a gritty player up front. If this group of forwards isn’t deep enough to get the job done, that’s on them.

We have a talented group of players here. Offence is not an issue, and overpaying jacked-up rental rates for more offense is not the plan here. Yes, like most fans, I’d like to see more piss and vinegar from these guys, but that has to come from within.

Losing both Bracco and Brown really hurts our depth. I expect Bracco will be our super cheap replacement for Brown, and may even be able to climb the depth chart further if we trade someone else (Kapanen) for a 1RHD. Otherwise, don’t fix what ain’t broken. Any “grit” can come from addition of a top line defender that isn’t afraid to lay out a check or two here and there.

Hope you have a good one there David. Stay safe my friend, and enjoy the ride Leafs are going to be treating us to for the year. I expect a real rollercoaster of ups and downs the remainder of the year. Lol.


3.) 24 Feb 2019 18:45:12
Not bad, but like leafsGM I think this hurts our depth. Bracco is also a stud and I don't think Dubas is willing to trade him for a rental.


4.) 24 Feb 2019 20:16:54
Dubas doesn't want to trade for an upcoming ufa

However, bracco was taken out of game a couple games ago making me think he will be part because of a deal. losing brown hurts but his 2.1 salary next year can be replaced by cheaper guy like moore and being 4th liner brown is on leafs when noone is hurt is pretty expensive.

Ferland adds element lwafs don't have. carolina would love to have a speedy bracco plus extra year at reasonable price of brown.

Without giving up picks by Dubas makes me think this deal could happen

Solid proposal, well done.
