Honestly the biggest help to the D problem would be to trade Gardiner. My proposal;

Gardiner (50% retained and Leivo)
To LA Kings for
2018 1st

Kings poised to make a run again, add to their roster without subtracting.

Dermott played last night and looked like he was already the second best D next to Rielly, so he could take Gardiners spot.


I think Polak is too slow now, but he’s what we got for now.
My idea is that dropping Gards makes the Leafs better.
Dobson, Woo or Merkley could be available late in the first to land another good RHD prospect to add to the pipeline.


1.) 07 Jan 2018 20:06:01
Dermott also blew several coverage's, but I admit he did look good, aggressive, and skated fairly well.

A late first is not enough for a vet D with offense. Add Austin Strand.

Big 20 year old RHD, doing well in Seattle. Had a great playoff last year.

Rumour out there?

Gards, Kapanen, 1st and possible another 1st

To Canes for



1.) 06 Dec 2017 16:39:31
With the way that Faulk has been playing this year, this is a MASSIVE overpayment. Way too much coming from the Leafs.

2.) 06 Dec 2017 21:53:25
I think it was a gimmick source. no way Canes would be looking for Gards in return with Hanafin, Slavin and Fleury up the left side, jus makes no sense.

3.) 06 Dec 2017 23:08:18
Way too much for Faulk. His numbers have been way down this year.

4.) 07 Dec 2017 15:05:59
And who has floated this alleged rumour?



04 Dec 2017 10:45:24
Leafs trade
Leivo, Carrick and 2018 3rd
To Coyotes for

Toronto has the ability to trade some younger assets for a more reliable defender. Also this is the type of trade I see the leafs making. I don’t think they’re going to trade a roster player as they’re strictly buyers, buyers normally won’t trade a roster player to upgrade another position. So much like last year with Boyle, a minor upgrade to a position needing help.

Demers could play in any spot really, could play with Rielly, Gards or Borgy. Zaitsev and Hainsey would be a great shut down pair.


1.) 07 Dec 2017 00:38:28
Finally, a trade that makes some sense! This is the kind of trade the Leafs need to make. The roster is looking good for a cup run. No trading JVR and Komarov, they are the kind of players you trade FOR if you are a contender. Demers would be a great addition and 4 years at 3.4M. Bonus! Gets Polak out of the line up. My suggestion:
Carrick, Soshnikov, Rychel (keep the draft pick and keep Mark happy)



27 Nov 2017 13:50:26
Bozak (50%)
To St. Louis for
Schmaltz, Musil and 2018 3rd rd pick

Schmaltz is probably ready for NHL, but the Blues are stacked on the right side. They need a third line centre.

May have to add a cap dump to even the cap up.


1.) 28 Nov 2017 15:51:51
Musil would be good for center depth, and he is big. Certainly Schmaltz is a good prospect.

But the Blues are right at the cap and would have to move to gain cap space just to make this deal as close as it is. They already have 5M LTIR on 3 players.

So what you would have to change:

TOR: Bozak (50%), Johnsson (50%), 2nd.

STL: Schmaltz, Musil, 3rd, Barbashev.



26 Nov 2017 15:24:12
Bozak, Leivo and Carrick
To Pittsburgh for
Maatta and 2018 2nd rd pick

Normally don’t read in to rumours but, Pittsburgh is struggling and the need a 3rd line C. So they will be making a push to acquire one.
Basically the trade is Bozak for Maatta but that’s not enough so Leivo is added and the Pens would need a roster D coming back.



This is good to me and solves the line shuffling that we continue to see, it’s good to have depth but I’m am plain sick of seeing Babs roll out a different line up every night.


1.) 26 Nov 2017 15:38:00
Maata is no good and Leivo has been solid when in the line up, no thanks!

2.) 26 Nov 2017 16:38:32
They need a top pairing guy and you propose that they trade that much for a guy who ends up on the bottom pair? Are you high or something?

3.) 26 Nov 2017 17:30:51
No from Pittsburgh. Maatta is more valuable to them than anyone coming back.

4.) 27 Nov 2017 04:11:57
It’s not so much as a bottom pairing, the Leafs don’t need a top pairing D. The top 4 is fine, they need stability throughout, having 3 pairings that can step up on any given night isn’t a bad thing.
Leivo is so overrated by Leafs fans, it’s ridiculous.
Sure he’s a fine player but he’s a bottom 6 player who can score, but his cap is probably 15 goals. You all think you’re going to get a huge deal by adding Leivo, you’re not.
Wouldn’t it be nice to have another D for the PK, because currently it’s all Hainsey and Zaitsev and if they take a penalty Babs is scrambling, Maatta would help with that.

Torontobuds- Maatta is solid and a smart positional player, jus a reliable D who can play 23 minutes a night if needed.

DBF- You jus don’t know man. Hainsey has brought the best out of Rielly and they are doing well together. Borgs has some offensive ability so Maatta would help him be able to jump up, Carrick isn’t that type of D that can free up a more talented D. Hainsey and Rielly are going to be burnt out playing the top lines every night, they need more capable and reliable D, period. Using Bozak and Leivo to achieve that would be great.

5.) 27 Nov 2017 09:11:40
Leivo to Pit for 2018 conditional 1st if pit makes it to their conference final if not then 2018 2nd and 2019 2nd. Biased leaf.

Kessel and Phaneuf will both be traded in the offseason, and if Toronto slides down and gets lucky enough to get McDavid or Eichel, I would say they don't trade Kessel. After the lottery I think a lot may happen.




10 Feb 2015 17:18:10
The only way leafs are getting rid of Clarkson is by retaining half his salary, and he is going to have to ask to be moved, so we are looking at a 5th Rd pick with half his salary. Great signing Nonis.
He may not even be a lost cause, but playing on this team with the coaches he has played under while here just does not benefit slhim at all.




09 Feb 2015 23:18:54
Leafs players and prices IMO:
Santorelli- 2nd Rd pick
Winnik- 3rd Rd pick
Franson- 2nd Rd pick and a decent prospect
Lupul- 3rd Rd pick and a decent prospect
Reimer- 3rd Rd pick
Bernier- 1st Rd pick and blue chip prospect
Kessel- Top 9F/top 5D roster player, Bluechip prospect, 1st Rd pick
Phaneuf- Mid-Late 1st Rd pick and a Bluechip prospect
Robidas- 4th and 5th Rd pick
Bozak- 1st Rd pick and good prospect
Gards- 2nd Rd pick
Kadri- Late 1st Rd/Early 2nd Rd pick
Holzer- 6th Rd pick

This is what I think the Leafs should be asking for. These are the players I see with a possibilty of being traded, deadline or offseason.
Core group- JVR, Holland, Komarov, Reilly. JVR is top line worthy, Holland has upside and plays a good brand, Komarov has heart, and Reilly is Reilly unreal. If the Leafs want to rebuild they have to go big or go home, especially with this deep draft, it could shorten the process by a couple years!


1.) I feel like Winnik can get a 2nd and Holzer more than a 6th, pretty good value other than that though.

2.) Thanks, I agree with Winnik; jus has to be the right team!



04 Feb 2015 01:44:13
Next 4 weeks will be interesting.
My prediction:
Franson traded to St. Louis for 2015 3rd Rd pick and Ty Rattie
Franson and 2016 3rd Rd pick to Detroit for Larkin and 2015 5th Rd pick
Santorelli to NYR for 2015 2nd Rd pick
Winnik to whoever for 3rd Rd pick
This will be it til offseason I think, don't want to lose these valuable pieces for nothing. Be nice to see some youth and picks coming back.




19 Jan 2015 05:14:40
Does anyone remember what Buffalo got for Vanek? 2015 1st and 2nd Rd picks and Moulson. Toronto needs to make a trade similar to this one. Lupul to Florida for 2015 1st and Fleishman?


1.) That was an exceptionally bad trade by the Isles. Dale Tallon would never make a comparable one.

I don’t think the Canucks would wanna trade a third of their d core.

Why would the Leafs all of a sudden split up Hainsey and Rielly after they’ve been pretty good together all season? And the top four is on the wrong sides.

I’ve been saying we need to move Gardiner for three years, he’s the biggest thing hurting the Leafs D. Almost anyone in the system could come in and be a safer player.

On another note, Connor Timmins for the Avs looks like an absolute gem. Would love to have that guy in the pipeline.

Wasn’t Liljegren the Leafs 2017 first rounder?

They're rebuilding. And they will be trading plenty come offseason

You really think Florida would give up that much though, the price you said. 2 prospects and good ones, a roster player, 2016 1st and 2015 2nd. That's a lot but if they could manage to obtain that package, good on them!

I'd be more upset if one of their assets gets hurt and cannot be traded

Neither Nonis or Shanny has picked up a phone since they got to Toronto. We have the worse front office in the NHL and we will be basement dwellers for the next 5 years at least. Every team in the division is trending up. Boston will stay strong, Habs are young and rising, Detroit will never be a weak team, Tampa is getting better every year, Buffalo and Florida are both young and improving.
