TOR: JVR, sign&trade (6x6)& a 2nd in 2018
CAR: Justin Faulk


TOR: Tyler Bozak (retained salary), Leivo
CGY: Sam Bennett




By bringing in Faulk, you're bringing in a gritty top 4 d man who will log big minutes with Rielly. Not to mention he'll get you 20 goals a season. Even though he's having a rough year in Carolina.

By bringing in Bennett, you're getting a great 2 way centremen who's good in the faceoff circle and will play the dirty areas. No need to worry about Bozak defeneding anymore. Bennett looks like he's lost his offensive talent but Marleau and Marner could easily bring that back.

Your top 3 lines are all even shut down lines with plenty of offensive upside.


1.) 15 Nov 2017 13:49:08
Although I like the players coming in, not sure enough is being given up, especially for Faulk.

Also, I would hardly call Bennett "great" he's been pretty awful this year. No way he supplants Kadri as the #2 Centre either.

2.) 15 Nov 2017 13:56:22
I could definitely live with the 1st trade, although I highly doubt that it would be enough for Carolina.

The 2nd trade is just horrendous for Calgary.

3.) 15 Nov 2017 15:33:43
I like the 1st trade, but Carolina will want more, even if they can get an agreement to extend.

As for the 2nd trade:

Bennett would make an excellent 3rd line center, but he's not going to be traded to Toronto.

Burkie has recently spieled off about the Toronto Media. Then when there is a hint of trading Bennett (to guess where), he goes on the defensive, that Bennett is going nowhere, just like Hamilton last year. And remember that with the exception of the Pylon trade (a loss for both sides), Toronto won most trades prior.

While Burkie is in Calgary, a trade with Toronto will not happen. There is a lot of ill will on his part.

But that's fine, there's 29 other teams to trade with.

He destroyed the Leafs and now he's helping ruin the Flames by continuing his cranky tirades; to put it nicely. He's toxic to team development. Fortunately for the Flames he's not making the decisions.

But I guess you could say "Finally! He's actually working for the Leafs".

Challenging teams will pay for Leo, JVR, and Bozak at the deadline; it's just that our price might have to be lowered or a package deal made to offset the cost.

TOR: Tyler Bozak, 2nd round pick in 2018

CBJ: David Savard

Projected Lines:



I know a lot of people would say to put Marleau at centre and not to separate Nylander and Matthews but Marleau is getting older and why would you want to overplay him and risk injury. Marner will have just as much success with Matthews. The cap situations would be the same but Savard still has 4 years left at a reasonable 4.25M AAV. The draft pick is because Bozak is on his final year of contract.


1.) 13 Nov 2017 13:03:37
I think if we trade for a dman, it's to get Hainsey off the right side.

Reilly savard
Gards zaitzev
Hainsey Carrick


Other than that I like it.

2.) 13 Nov 2017 17:57:34
I wouldn't mind seeing hainsey working with gardiner though the way he has with reilly. Also i'd rather try marner on centre and keep nylander with matthews.

3.) 13 Nov 2017 17:58:39
I disagree, we got him specifically to play on the right side. He's used to playing on that side and does it well. He can bring Gardiner stability to the back end when he goes on his rushes.



11 Nov 2017 12:31:34
So apparently the rangers and blue jackets are interested in Bozak.

TOR: Bozak, Kapanen

NYR: Lias Andersson.


1.) 11 Nov 2017 16:39:55
Stop reading Eklund, the guy is a complete fraud.

2.) 12 Nov 2017 07:20:16
Eklund or not, it's still a trade thought. That is why we're here right?

3.) 12 Nov 2017 07:21:25
Bozak alone would get Andersson.

4.) 12 Nov 2017 14:16:17

Do you seriously believe Bozak is worth that much in a trade with NY? If the Leafs could acquire a top 10 player in the draft by flipping Bozak, I think they would have done it by now.

5.) 12 Nov 2017 21:06:09
Bozak alone will not get you Lias but adding Kapanen just might be too much. Maybe Andreas Johnson instead.

The Rangers certainly could use Bozak.

The question would be whether the Leafs want to wait a year or two for this kid to show up on the Marlies, and then another year after that.

That was Nylanders path, but Willie is better than Lias.

I think that IF Rangers are willing to move Andersson he's not worth as much as you think.

ARI: Hjalmarsson, Dvorak

TOR: Leivo, Bozak

Looking at what Arizona gave up for Stepan, I can sorta see them maybe wanting Bozak.

Hjalmarsson brings great depth and experience to our back end. I'd personally pair him with Borgman on the third pair, even out the pairings. Dvorak would be a great replacement for Bozak and would be reunited with Marner, as they've had great success together.


1.) 08 Nov 2017 01:54:44
Attractive deal, but ARI wants more. Maybe one more prospect (maybe Dermott) . Hjal. is injured currently.

With the lack of improvement in the Yotes, other deals may be possible for a young center.



05 Oct 2017 20:48:53
Here's a trade proposal for next year depending on whether or not this player has another bad year.

CGY: Sam Bennett
TOR: Leivo, Soshnikov, 2018 2nd round pick

If Bennett has the same year this year, 35 point season, I can't see Calgary expecting too much for him.

Bennett is a great two way centre who just hasn't put it all together in the NHL yet. He's got grit and his compete level is out of this world. I feel like Babcock could really get him going along with all the depth on the team right now.

Here's his draft preview to show you why I think he's a perfect fit for us. (You'll see why)

These would be my projected lines for next year:



1.) 05 Oct 2017 21:07:00
I meant 25 point season, sorry!

2.) 06 Oct 2017 10:43:54
I submitted my post early by accident, here's the Bennett preview

Lines again:


(Not sure If liljegren's defensive play will be ready for the NHL next season but I'm hoping so)

3.) 06 Oct 2017 14:14:43
I don't know about everyone else but I feel that leivo will be a excellent replacement for jvr in the near future.

His size and skill would be great in a top6 role and I feel frustrated that he hasn't been given a permanent spot on this roster.

4.) 06 Oct 2017 22:29:18
I think Leivo is an NHL player, maybe top 6 but I don’t know. I hope he will get in with Brown on that fourth line the odd night and swap out Martin when possible.
Brown looks way too good to be on a line with Martin and Fehr, with Leivo in there that line would actually be pretty capable of putting up some offensive numbers.

Obviously Martin serves an important purpose but there’s not reason Leivo can’t replace him on chosen nights. He deserves to be playing on a nightly basis and there’s not many other teams that would have him as a 13th forward. Toronto is jus stacked with forwards.

5.) 07 Oct 2017 07:13:22
Completely agree with you, when you are playing a soft team like pittsburgh put leivo in to run power against power and maybe put polak in on D so if anything happens someone is there to settle the piece.

BUF: Ristolainen
TOR: Brown, Neilsen, 1st and 2nd in 2018

Ristolainen brings a big gritty presence to our back line which we lack and would be a perfect partner for rielly.

Brown is a great player who I adore but can be replacement by Kapanen. Neilsen is also a great prospect but Dermott is miles ahead of him right now.

I don't understand why you keep going on about his contract. Nylander is an elite player, he's in a slump right now but every player goes through that. You're saying ehlers is better then Nylander at this stage but was he at this point last year. Ehlers was in a slump at the start of the year and he still got 6x7.

I think you'd be an even worse GM than Nonis.
