Zaitsev, 2019 1st, 2020 2nd, Johnnson

For

Parayko

This is not an overpayment in any way. This is almost identical to the Hamonic deal except parayko is better so the offer is larger. Stl has no 1st rounder this year.

The only way the leafs can afford to bring in parayko is if Zaitsevs salary goes the other way. We are probably losing Gardiner unless he takes a major hometown discount. Hainsey should be resigned for a year or two to man the middle pairing with Dermott until Sandin is ready for prime time. Borgman can walk into the lineup next year and either we upgrade on Ozighanov or Liljegren takes the next step and makes the team.

Leafs defense could look significantly different next year

If this is how the Leafs get Parayko then hopefully Dubas comes to this site sees this deal and offers it St. Louis.

Definitely not an overpayment.

It’s not looking like Nylander is going anywhere any time soon. That front loaded contract virtually guarantees he’s going to be a Leaf for a number of years. So we don’t really have a big enough carrot to bring in an true 1RHD. Looks like we need to be thinking smaller deals now.

Leafs gm

I would argue his contract makes him more trade able after this year. If he performs.

Tor:
Horton's contract, Marincin, 2019 3rd rounder

Mtl:
Alzner 50% retained (2.3 mil AAV)

Boosts our defensive depth. He will do well under Babcock and this is like getting him at a very low cost.
If Hainsey goes down we don't have very many defense-first minded options and Marincin is not an NHL player.

Also dumps horton a year and a half early.

How long is Alzners contract for? Montreal pays 2.3 per year plus 5 for Horton which includes next year and gain crappy dman just so they can get a 3rd round pick.

Do you see any flaws in this deal?

Alzner at 2.3 would be ok at best but having him around as insurance also could be ok.

Overall it's an iffy deal for both sides.


2.) 30 Nov 2018 04:22:50
Montreal took a 4th round pick and joel armia to absorb steve masons final year of his contract (4M- buyout cost was about 2.75 mil) .

Horton is owed 3.6 mil in salary next season. Alzners contract is for another 3 seasons after this one.

Might make sense for MTL. they'll save 8M (2.3x3.5Years) and be absorbing 6.25M (4.5x0.5 year 3.6x1year for hortons salary and 0.8x0.5 year for marincin) . So they actually save 1.75M and get a 3rd rounder. Depends how badly they want to move Alzner at this point.


3.) 30 Nov 2018 04:37:49
We don’t want Alzner even at $2.3. Lol. That would still make him third highest paid defenseman on the team next year. And he would be bottom pairing for sure. He’s got four years left on his deal @ $3.6M per, so 50 % retained is actually only $1.8M, so we just saved half a million, but if we don’t take him at all, we save even more.

I don’t think Leafs would be interested in Alzner even if Montreal retained 100%. He’s just not very good.

Extended Jake Gardiner @ 6x6

For

Travis Sanheim, Phillipe Myers

One of the two from Philly would be close. No chance they give up both of them for Gardiner.


2.) 11 Oct 2018 16:33:39
Flyers also have Morin or Hagg they may be willing to part with. Put one of them in to go along with Sanheim and they might go for it. We can take Lehtera as a cap dump too as well in order to make the trade more attractive to Flyers to get us the pair you suggest.


3.) 12 Oct 2018 07:02:03
I didn't include Lehtera because Philly has no cap issues this season, they actually have one of the lower payrolls in the NHL.

Leafs accepted a 4th round pick in 2016 for taking on Eric Fehr and his 1.5 years left of a 2M cap hit (approx $3 million)

Proposal:
TOR: Horton UFA 2020 ($8.1 million salary)
2019 4th round pick (lower of ours or STL)

For

ARZ: Bolland UFA 2019 ($5.5 million salary)

A difference of $2.6 million. Arizona has accepted multiple trades in the past taking on salaries for draft picks. If Chayka loves his picks like Dubas does he would probably jump on this. It defers $1 million in salary payable this year and Horton's contract is insured anyways.

This essentially just speeds up the process and gets Horton off the books a year early. Eliminates the LTIR cap issues we will face when Matthews and Marners new contracts come into play next season.

Where do u get 8.1 million. 5.3 is hortons salary. that's a 200 thousand difference.

Just ask Matthews or Marner to hold out next season until start of year. Then they can sign a bigger deal after Horton LTIR kicks in. that's cheating the system.


2.) 19 Sep 2018 02:32:32
I think we have to do a third round pick just because Bolland expires after this year.


3.) 19 Sep 2018 02:33:38
Horton is on a LTIR, MEANS NOTHING DEAL.


4.) 19 Sep 2018 08:54:32
Horton's not on LTIR until the season starts, and if a team is over the cap when the season starts they incurr a cap penalty the next year and lose cap space. Moving horton's last year off the books actually does make sense, and a 4th round pick seems like appropriate payment for Arizona taking on that burden. I'm 100% in favour of this trade.

Leafs have an abundance of cap space and This came across my mind as a way to gain an asset without giving up anything of value.

Troy Brouwer is overpaid and has fallen out of favour in Calgary... he was a buyout candidate this offseason.

Wonder if CGY would consider a swap for Nathan Horton. They will need the cap space next season to resign Thachuk and this avoids a buyout.

If Brouwer can play an effective bottom 6 role for us he may regain some of his value and become a tradeable asset in the following season or we will be able to buy him out after a season as he is not on injured reserve like Horton.

This is a risky move but if Babcock can get the player Brouwer was a couple seasons ago we would get a vet with loads of experience and a valuable playoff warrior.

1.) 29 Jul 2018 16:53:24
I don’t think this trade happens. For one thing, Hortons contract counts against the cap hit until season starts, so really doesn’t benefit Flames in re-signing Tkachuk unless he signs his extension after start of season or Flames find a way to lower salary before then.

The other reason is from Leafs side of things. Horton counts toward LTIR once season starts. This gives us flexibility to pursue someone come deadline time that we can use as a ringer for the playoffs. With Brouwer we don’t have that option.

Torontobuds- you are allowed to exceed the cap by 10% (8 million atm) until the roster submission deadline. I'm not exactly sure how the LTIR works at the start of the season but that's why they pay those GM's well. Highly likely we see Horton's contract moved. The price should be similar to what Montreal did with the Jets for Steve Mason and Joel Armia last year. Essentially gave up a 4th rounder for a player worth a second round pick. We can probably call it a third rounder as Horton at 3.6 mil makes less than Mason would have.

Teams that will have the cap space: ARZ, CAR, NJD, even MTL if they can't land a big free agent.

Ive actually suggested this before on this site. I really do believe that the leafs need to move this guy at some point before next season and it is very possible. Now the leafs can actually exceed the cap before the start of the season and then place him on LTIR to get the full cap savings.
