Wow, now these are some minor deals. The montreal one i like. Trading a small forward who could play center if needed for a large forward who could play center if needed could work. Both players have not lived up to anything special so why not?

The detroit deal might take another piece. I mean this svechnikov is not real good but he is good enough to make an nhl lineup. Korchkov is not ready for nhl just yet and thsts why toronto may need to add.

Overall pretty small potatoes but probably the only thing leafs do at moment

Mikko kokkanen is a solid LHD prospect to slide beside hollowell.


2.) 19 Aug 2019 12:25:37
Korshkov and Svechnikov both derailed by injuries. I don’t know if either are nhl ready. Both are borderline. I just like Svechnikov’s size.


3.) 19 Aug 2019 14:37:11
korchkov is actually bigger at 6'4

svechnikovs salary has performance bonuses that could make his 836,000 salary turn into 1,050,000

other than that it might be worth the very tiny risk this deal is.


4.) 19 Aug 2019 15:30:07
@craigger

I’ve updated my lineups to put Kokkanen in. He’s a good b-prospect player, you’re right. Would be perfect fit for that empty space beside Hollowell.


5.) 19 Aug 2019 15:45:10
I always see you put the lines in and its never a huge deal just fun to see.

Guess kral (c level) could be Rasanens partner. lol.


6.) 19 Aug 2019 18:03:33
Korshkov is taller by one inch, but Svechnikov weighs over 30 lbs more. Let’s just say they are both huge. Lol.


7.) 19 Aug 2019 18:38:44
Minor deals but very well thought out to add some kind of size to the line up.

Good prop.

Leafs trade Nylander, Liljegren
Edmonton trades Nurse, Yamamoto, Bouchard

I have such a hard time believing in Yamamoto. He’s like Rudy for the NHL. Too small. He might surprise. The rules have changed and so has the game. Much friendlier towards smaller players.

LeafsGM

1.) 19 Aug 2019 10:01:21
I got nothing negative to say on this deal. Nurse is a solid D while bouchard could turn out to be a stud and yam will be another small forward to add to long list of those in leafs system

Nylander might really have a breakout year and liljegren is a stud but also could be a dud.

This could be edmontons way of trying to regain what was lost in hall deal.

This could work but has a chance of leaf fans hating dubas if nylander plays with mcdavid and gets hall type numbers.


2.) 19 Aug 2019 15:53:35
I don’t think Edmonton would give up that much I would say take out Bouchard and it makes is more realistic but this deal doesn’t get done until the marner situation gets done.


3.) 19 Aug 2019 16:41:14
EDM. Has been waiting for a big RHD with puck moving and offensive ability. WHy on earth would they trade him and then their best LHD for an unproven prospect and an overpaid smallish forward.

Nylander and liljgren do not get you bouchard alone.


4.) 19 Aug 2019 18:40:02
It's a good prop but I think you need to add Bracco and a pick to get all that. Just a minor tweaks as that's a lot coming back.

Leafs trade Kapanen, Dermott
Dallas trades Lindell.

LeafsGM

1.) 16 Aug 2019 12:37:38
I like this deal. lindell is a defence first kind of guy. Dealing kapanen can only happen if marner is signed in my opinion

I like this target very much. well done.


2.) 16 Aug 2019 15:28:13
Lindell’s proved he’s a top 4 defenseman able to keep up with the best of them. He’s a good, cheap, long term addition. A solid 2LHD who can play 1LHD if Rielly gets hurt or whatever.

Dermott is a top 4 player himself. I just like Lindell’s size better. Since Dallas is somewhat desperate for wingers, I’m thinking they would be willing to downgrade from Lindell to Dermott in order to get Kapanen, who is 3RW on Leafs, but would be 2RW, with extra time playing on special situations because of his speed, in Dallas.


3.) 16 Aug 2019 15:59:56
If Dermott and kappy both have to go this is a good return. Kappy not such a big loss as Bracco can fit in somewhere and hopeful Excel.

@Craigger I think your right as well. Need Marner if you lose a RW in a trade for a defenceman.


4.) 16 Aug 2019 17:55:27
Is Lindell the guy that drives a lot?


5.) 16 Aug 2019 19:00:42
Another somewhat positive aspect of this proposal is that with Dermott being traded, Leafs still have an extra spot for a defenseman to be protected. Rielly and Lindell would make the first two. Then Leafs can sign the third and expose Harpur. It was under the assumption Marner comes back, yes. All my proposals only the players mentioned move teams in any way, including to AHL. Unless otherwise explicitly stated, said player remains exactly where he was prior to the trade.

And finally, because Kapanen is traded, with no forward coming in to replace him, that leaves us with the seven players we protect (Matthews, Nylande, Johnsson, Kapanen, Hyman, Tavares, Marner) . Petan is the player exposed. I believe he will meet the minimal requirements.

So this proposal serves multiple purposes outside just shoring up LHD for the next decade. R.

Leafs trade Marner
Buffalo trades Skinner, Ristolainen

I like skinner’s new contract. Too bad Marner just doesn’t do the same. I think Marner is a better all round player, while Skinner is obviously the better goal scorer. He’s a legitimate replacement for Marner, and we can probably squeeze Ristolainen into the deal somehow too.

I know Leafs need a play maker. Nylander is one. If Kapanen can ever learn to pass, that’s two. Skinner, Tavares, Matthews all legitimate 40 goal scorers.

Johnsson/ Matthews/ Kapanen
Skinner/ Tavares/ Nylander
Hyman/ Kerfoot/ Bracco
Mikheyev/ Spezza/ Petan.

1.) 16 Aug 2019 10:24:15
Do you really believe the leafs trade Marner to Buffalo. that's all I will say about that.
You want an alternative trade for discussion:
Johnsson to Edm. for Larrson, Leafs can add a pick or prospect.


2.) 16 Aug 2019 14:50:37
I think skinner is buffalos guy for life. They may do this deal if marner signs skinner money but we all know that ain't happening

Overall its a good idea but i truely feel buffalo passes

As for the alternative trade discussion its going to take a solid prospect and 1st round pick added to johnsson to get larsson.

Both deals are respectable and good starting discussion points.


3.) 16 Aug 2019 16:48:06
I agree. Skinner can stay with Buffalo, and also highly doubt the Leafs would trade Marner to Buffalo.


4.) 16 Aug 2019 19:11:58
Boston traded Kessel to Toronto. Lightning traded Drouin to Montreal for Sergachev, that’s just two examples of big name high quality players getting traded between divisional rivals, one of which included the Leafs themselves. It’s not as common, but it’s not u heard of as well. I don’t think this fake trade would happen though anyway, and it’s not just because of the whole divisional rival thing.

Johnsson for Larsson is a no in my books. Leafs can’t afford to lose any more bodies at that position. With Hyman out, we are thin enough and relying on Johnsson (- 2nd year player), and Mikheyev, Moore, Petan, who are all basically first year.

You have got to be F&%$ing joking here. I mean come on. I respected some of your comments here and we have had some fun back and forth but this is not worth discussion. A 1C, 1st overall, that 30 teams would love to have for those 2, and not even a top D.


2.) 15 Aug 2019 12:57:45
No need to get bent out of shape just because you don’t agree with the post. You should know by now that my proposals are meant to stimulate discussion. Kotkaniemi is a third overall pick and projects to be a 1C. And Suzuki is one of the highest rated prospects outside the nhl. He projects very highly as well. If this was the team we were going in to start the year with, you would be hyped about Kotkaniemi and Suzuki both. This team still challenges for a cup.

Also, the $11M+ we save from trading Matthews could be used to sign someone else. Gardiner, for example. So you could say the trade is incomplete. It’s the start of something. What would you do with $11M+ right now if you were Dubas?


3.) 15 Aug 2019 13:02:49
Instead of getting your nose out of joint over a fake trade, why not make a suggestion to improve it? Who would you ask for to go with these two players if you don’t think the return is high enough? Brook? Juulsen? Petty? Weber? Lots of good players in Montreal.


4.) 15 Aug 2019 13:49:43
If Montreal approves i'd ask for Brooks personally.


5.) 15 Aug 2019 14:05:31
Hey, all I am saying is any trade proposals starting with Matthews, Marner, or Reilly are non starters. I realize its a forum for discussions on trades but I side on the plausable, not fantasy.
I apologize if I offend people but when proposals for any of the young stars are posted I do get a little disgruntled.


6.) 15 Aug 2019 14:14:09
I like Brook a lot too Craigger. Juulsen with that nasty eye injury, or whatever it was, I would be more hesitant of, even though he is more proven and was/ is more highly rated. I don’t like the idea of taking on injured players, or those players with a history of injury. Especially if it’s major and recent. You might be able to get someone like that cheap because of the injury, but that’s what happens to damaged goods. They go on sale.

That’s Brook. Boy he looks good. I’m rather anxious to see how he plays against adults now. His stats we’re padded as an overage in the WHL last year. So this year coming his first against true adult professional contenders will be his make it or break it year.


7.) 15 Aug 2019 18:02:49
I actually think this is a pretty solid trade if MTL adds in a pick. MTL fans are bent out of shape over not have that franchise 1C they desperately want so they may do it. Neither players coming back is a top guy like Mathews but both could become great players. Add in a 1st for the risk factor and I say take it.

Good prop.


8.) 16 Aug 2019 01:25:02
Not sure why you wouldn't trade Marner, Mathews or Reilly and become disgruntled about it. If Boston called tomorrow and offered McAvoy, Carlo, Pasternak and 3 1sts for any one of the three you would say turn it down immediately? Of course not, none of us would. Blockbuster deals like these have happened before and I guarantee will happen again in the future with different teams involved. Not long again some idiot traded Taylor Hall for a bag of pucks after all lol. Therefore nothing is complete fantasy as your suggesting.

Reilly for Captain!


9.) 16 Aug 2019 11:32:49
heres how i view it. with matthews its hard to sign marner. without matthews marner signs easy and toronto adds 2 great players in return

which do you like more
matthews - marner

or
marner + Kot + Suz - matthews

take one and let me know.

Korshkov is taller by one inch, but Svechnikov weighs over 30 lbs more. Let’s just say they are both huge. Lol.

I agree with Craigger here. Very accurate assessment. Montour is a fine defenseman who was playing top line in Anaheim whenever Manson was hurt. I’m very jealous Buffalo got him. And for a price I think we could have matched.

Given Anaheim and Toronto’s many friendly deals in recent past few years, I can’t help but think Anaheim approached Toronto first for a Montour trade and Toronto said no.

You would expose Kerfoot? I was thinking Kapanen. We got Bracco to fill in Kapanen’s spot. There’s nobody can fill Kerfoot at 3C.
