Maple Leafs fire Mike Babcock, hire Coach Q (Joel Quenneville).

Maple Leafs fire GM Kyle Dubas and hire Mark Hunter as GM.

Maple Leafs fire President Brendan Shanahan and hire Wendel Clark

Maple Leafs - Rangers

Toronto Maple Leafs trade Nikita Zaitsev to the New York Rangers in exchange for Adam McQuaid


1.) 19 Feb 2019 01:17:32
I'll take it, Mcquaid has an expiring contract and only makes just over 1 mill. This would be a great way to add some depth and drop cap space.

2.) 19 Feb 2019 02:08:23
I don’t think they will want to take Zaitzev and his cap hit they are trying to resign some of there ufas.

3.) 19 Feb 2019 15:47:13
Hayes is getting traded, and so is Zuccarelo, if they wanted to re-sign they would've done it by now.

4.) 20 Feb 2019 08:56:50
NYR have 21.95 AAV in their top 4 blueliners for minimum next two years. They are not taking Zaitsev's contract for next 5 years after this.

Maple Leafs - Rangers

Maple Leafs trade Kasperi Kapenen, Jake Gardiner and prospect Timothy Lilejgren to the Rangers for Brady Skjei and Jimmy Vessey


1.) 17 Feb 2019 18:55:31
Leafs pass. Kappy for skjei is interesting tho.

2.) 17 Feb 2019 19:09:24
Well, I’m not going to lie to you NylanderMagic. I’m not sold on this one.

Skjei is a real heavy hitter, no doubt about that. And he can play over 20 minutes a night. He’s got a pretty good contract too, signed for another 5 years after this. But he’s slow. His point production continues to fall after a very good first season. And his possession metrics are horrible. Corsica has him ranked 76th LHD, which probably puts him 125+ overall. Well below Gardiner. And probably well below what Liljegren will become once he is in the league full time.

And Vesey. While I wish he had signed with the Leafs instead of Rangers as he would have been good to get for free, but he might not be worth trading for. Again, his possession metrics are terrible. And he’s a depth guy, currently playing 2nd line for NYR, he would be bottom six on Leafs for sure. Corsica has him ranked 87th for his position at LW. With only two years left until UFA status, Leafs would almost definitely have buyers remorse losing Kapanen for him.

I honestly think Leafs are giving up the two better players here, and throwing in an A-prospect. Our best RHD prospect we’ve had in over a decade. Maybe longer. Plus we are losing all that time value with Vesey having two years vs Kapanens possible 8 years. It’s too big a difference imo.

It’s a good idea though, bringing in someone to strengthen the LW. And a heavy hitter like Skjei is a player that is virtually unanimous we can use. I just don’t think these are the right guys for us though. There’s always good and bad to every proposed trade, but in this case, I think the bad outweighs the good. Too risky.

3.) 17 Feb 2019 20:45:33
LeafsGM summed it up perfectly. I don't even know if I would trade Gardiner straight up for Skjei at this point, and you also want to throw in Kapanen and Liljgren.

I would rather get DeAngelo, if the leafs can get him for Gardiner straight up then they should jump all over it.

4.) 17 Feb 2019 22:29:03
I think dubas would love DeAngelo in a leafs uniform. he knows him quite well.

Sproul (cant crack nhl for some reason)

These 5 were in order of appearance the go two guys in the Sau while he ran the show. Sandin and hollowell were his final 2 D drafted before he left. i do believe he likes to go with what he knows so DeAngelo is definetly a possibility.

5.) 17 Feb 2019 23:18:26
I think we did pretty good in getting Muzzin.

6.) 18 Feb 2019 18:27:31
Skeji is cornerstone e of their blueline going forward.

Staal is on wrong side of 30. Shattenkirk is 30 and one of the most overrated blueliners in league and certainly overpaid.

Vesey has been just ok.

Leafs pass.

Hurricanes - Maple Leafs

Maple Leafs trade Nazem Kadri, Jake Gardiner, prospect Timothy Lilejgren and a 2nd Rd pick in 2019 to the Hurricanes for Dougie Hamilton and Michael Ferlund


1.) 17 Feb 2019 20:50:11
I would honestly say by this point Nazem Kadri+2nd is enough for Hamilton. However I dought that happens because the leafs don't have a lot of center depth after their top 3, at least no one other then maybe Nylander who can take Kadri's spot right away.

Gardiner for Ferland is fair, maybe even an overpayment by the leafs. I don't think there is a need for Liljgren in this deal.

In conclusion, an overpayment by the leafs for a struggling defenceman and a LW.

2.) 17 Feb 2019 22:31:50
Kadri and gardiner i agree may be enough to swing this deal. however, I've said it many times i feel a team like carolina will be going to want more term coming back. kadri has that so he is good but gardiner is upcoming ufa. i unfortunatly think carolina asks for dermott. i hate it but that's just my thought.

Maple Leafs - Rangers

Maple Leafs trade N. Kadri, N. Zaitsev, prospects T. Lilejgren, A. Brooks and M. Hallowell in exchange for M. Zibanejad, S. Day and a 1st Rd pick in 2019


1.) 05 Feb 2019 04:06:06
We don’t need picks and prospects anymore, what we need is a solid defensive defenceman to play with Gardiner so we can unload Zaitsev’s contract, and possibly another LW, everything else is fine as it is.

Marner is not getting traded. Nylander is more likely to be traded.

Are you nuts? Marner is untouchable. Kadri, Gardiner, Zaitsev, Marleau and Hainsey would be the first to go in a trade. Now if it is Kadri and another piece to Calgary for Sam Bennett and a D-Man, then I am all for it.

No dice. The 2019 1st Rd pick was just traded to LA in the Muzzin deal.

Trade "The Snake" Jake Gardiner and get what you can. This guy has the hockey IQ of a sieve.

Does anybody know what the Shanaplan is? What is going on with Matthews? Does he want out of Toronto? He has been playing like crap? Could he be offer sheeted by Arizona for 1 yr max contract of $16 million and the Leafs can turn around and offer sheet Laine?
