Leafs trade Marleau
Washington trades Burakovsky

We know Burakovsky was on the block most of the season. He should be cheap to re-sign after a poor showing last year.

I figure the only way Marleau waives is if it is to another contender. Washington is as good.

Leafs trade Timashov, 3rd
Vegas trades Miller, Gusev

I think this is identical to a proposal someone posted earlier, except I threw Gusev in. He’s very small, which makes me wonder if he can handle the nhl, but his 82 points in 65 games in the KHL lead me to believe he could produce in the nhl. He would have to be signed to entry level deal, so would be very cheap.

Great Competition the choice of the Strome family or the Hansen Brothers.
I prefer the Sutters.

You do realize that the Strome family have been utter disappointments thus far.

I like the Chicago trade. Strome breaking out proves that some young players need to be traded to find their game. However if your bringing over Strome you need to play him on a line with Marner. I know the leafs promised Tavares he would play with Marner so you could stick him on the LW.

Second two trades I think are overpayments from Toronto's standpoint. I still think they find a way to trade Zaitsev though.

Both Dylan’s and Ryan were able to turn it around and put up very respectable numbers on their new teams last year. Let’s face it, their old teams were all pretty crap, and playing with better line mates with better coaching staff really helped these guys break out. But yeah, it’s a bit of a gamble.

I actually thought I was overpaying in all three trades here MostLeaf. Lol. By t as for the Philly trade, Ratcliffe is a very highly rated prospect player that Hextall (who I think is a very good GM that got screwed over) paid up for. Looking at his numbers last year, I can understand why. And you got to love his size to boot. A young player that large with speed and skill, he could be the steal here if Philly were to make this deal.

I doubt Ottawa trades Brannstrom after they gave up Stone for him.

As for the second trade don't think Vatanen is the guy the leafs should be targeting. There are much better and cheaper options out there. Zacha however could use a fresh start.

Leafs can't afford Karlsson, I'm sorry.


2.) 21 May 2019 17:42:43
I think if we trade off Kadri, Nylander, Zaitsev, we can afford Karlsson, though to be honest, I’m not so sure how much I would want him. He’s starting to look injury prone, and never really did return to form after that first major injury to his foot. Not looking so hot in the playoffs here either.

Brannstrom was the best offer Ottawa received for Stone is why they accepted it. Ottawa lost a lot of offense this year: Stone, Duchene, Hoffman, Dzingle, and even Karlsson. They might be wanting to replace some of that scoring with a proven player like Nylander, rather than wait for Brannstrom to develop, if he ever does even make it to nhl.

Vatanen, like Karlsson, injury didn’t help his play any last year. He’s only got one year left on his contract, so is only a plug for now until we get Liljegren going.

Zacha is the main target here. I really think he would work out much better playing Leafs offensive system. Once Jersey drafts Hughes, and they already have Hirschier, I can see them making Zacha available.

I’ve always liked Schenn, and I was suggesting on here last off season we sign him. I love his physical aggressive style of play. He is a hitting machine.

You say “misstep by Dubas at the deadline”. Exactly what do you mean? I guess because he failed to obtain a RHD and got Muzzin instead?

From what I’ve been reading, Vancouver was pretty happy with Schenn’s performance too. It’s very possible he re-signs there. But I don’t know. Anything is possible I suppose. Lol.

Good post. I love this proposal. Well thought out. You even posted the order of trades the way they should be. Lol. Still, I’m curious about the whole Dubas misstep comment?

The problem with this trade Randy, is that if Vegas trades Miller, it will be to clear cap space. I don’t think they would be willing to take Zaitsev on in return. I would love if this trade could happen. Wouldn’t that be wonderful? Lol. It’s just not in the cards though. Vegas won’t make this trade. Miller is better than Zaitsev, and they were unhappy with Miller last year. Imagine how unhappy they would be with Zaitsev? Lol.

An entire team of LHD is different. I don’t see why it can’t be done though. I think the team looks better overall, though I question just how effective Marleau and Thornton willl be together. Someone on here once told me they hate each other. Whether that is true or not, I don’t know. What were you going to offer Thornton anyway? 1 year @ $2M is about all I would give him. If SJ doesn't make him an offer and he wants to play here, that’s the best we can give him. Take it or leave it.

I’ve read a lot of analysts saying that Leafs can’t afford both Johnsson and Kapanen long term. Right now, Kapanen is the obvious choice because he’s on the strong side and we have replacements for him, whereas our LW is already the weaker side and we are losing Marleau. Kapanen also seems to be perceived as the better player as well, probably because he was drafted higher.

It’s always a risk taking on players who have just come off a down year and injured, which applies to Kadri this year just as much as to Turris. It’s probably a good idea to let him build up some value first before trading him. At the same time, we get to see if Turris is able to get back to his normal as well. There’s also no harm in having Nashville retain if they really want to make this trade. If they retain $750k, Kadri and Turris would cost the same.

Mantha is a great player. He has numbers similar to Nugent-Hopkins. I wouldn’t mind having him on the team at all. One of either Nylander or Kapanen should do it, though Nylander is considered the more valuable. If you’re going to add to your LW, Mantha would be a good way to go.

I still think it’s two risky to be trading off two RW, one of whom many consider elite right now and relying on Bracco and Moore. I’d rather promote Brown and re-sign Ennis. I guess we have to agree to disagree on that one. I didn’t read the second post until after I had already sent mine in. Yours wasn’t posted when I wrote mine. That’s why I didn’t see your comment on RW.
