Hurricanes - Maple Leafs

Dougie Hamilton, Michael Ferlund and prospect Julien Gauthier to the Maple Leafs for William Nylander and Jake Gardiner


1.) 12 Nov 2018 04:15:49
Would love that trade.

2.) 12 Nov 2018 04:50:22
I don’t think Carolina will move ferland unless you add something more of value cause gardiner has non the have Faulk who is basically the same player.

3.) 12 Nov 2018 05:04:30
Take Ferland out and it's a good deal. Maybe add something a bit less.

4.) 12 Nov 2018 05:25:59
If Leafs could have gotten Hamilton and Ferland + for Nylander and Gardiner they would have just dealt with Calgary directly themselves, and the Hanifin for Hamilton trade wouldn’t have taken place. I like the size of all these guys. If your objective was to increase size, then congratulations are in order, you’ve done an admirable job.

Gauthier is a solid prospect. Read lots of good things on him. Big kid. Would be a real nice pick up for Leafs if we could get him.

Hamilton for Nylander is very interesting
Ferland for Gardiner is less interesting

Adding Gauthier to this deal might make up difference in value

If I were Dubas I'd do it

LeafsGM made good point about Calgary but at time Nylander was getting signed in Dubas mind for 5-6 million. he didn't so now it's time to talk to multiple teams and pry a RHD away for him.

Good proposal.

6.) 12 Nov 2018 12:07:14
Hamilton was traded in June, the Leafs were not at an impasse with Nylander then so no, they would not have traded with Calgary.

Vancouver - Toronto

Maple Leafs trade William Nylander Jake Gardiner and Ron Hainsey to the Canucks for Jake Virtanen, prospects Jonathan Dahlén and Jett Woo along with Erik Gudbranson and Chris Tanev


1.) 09 Nov 2018 14:27:04
Vancouver balls. You decimate their entire RHD, includong their best prospect in Woo.

I don’t think Leafs are too keen on this deal either. Neither Dahlen or Woo are what I would call A-prospects. Gudbranson and Virtanen are busts. And Tanev is injury prone. Without a real high quality prospect player or pick coming in to go along with the two players, it may not be enough for Leafs to pull the trigger.

2.) 09 Nov 2018 21:02:36
I really liked a deal I earlier saw today.

This one proposed was similar but too many dmen involved.

LeafGM is very wise to suggest about deprecating vancouvers RHDmen. Lose Hainsey and one of Vancouvers RHD to start.

Then add a better prospect than Woo and Dahlen as Nylander is an almost stud.

Virtanen is a good throwin but he is close to a bust that you may need to add a depth Center as that seems to be a need with Matthews out.

So in closing your deal is a good start and with a couple of tweaks it could be a perfect deal

Nylander, Gardiner for RHD,3C, virtanen and a top tier prospect.

That's my 2 cents anyways.

Got to thinking about this some more. This whole Carolina Hurricanes all in on William Nylander. I say the Leafs pass on Tuevo Teravainen. Here is my refined trade proposal;

Maple Leafs trade William Nylander, Jake Gardiner, Andreas Johnson, Carl Grundstrom, Frederik Gauthier, Sean Durzi, Josh Leivo and Ron Hainsey to the Carolina Hurricanes for Brett Pesce, Michael Ferlund, Haydn Fleury and Julien Gauthier


1.) 05 Nov 2018 07:03:53

Your in wrong vein in this trade. If you look at LEAFGM trade above he nails it. Leafs want to set themselves up the next 10 years guys top tier going through entry level. The leafs want to do the same thing Tampa did to Montreal in the DROUIN trade steal a big fish right before their eyes. I’m ok taking back a prime forward like Zadina and grabbing a solid defence prospect in a two for one deal. Nylander going back the other way.

2.) 05 Nov 2018 11:24:48
The problem is Ferland is a free agent next year, if you add Teraiven and pay that price you have a #1 line of he, Matthews and Kapanen for 6 to 8 years.

Teraiven replaces Marleau who will be traded next year.

Also, from your trade I would keep Gaulthier to continue to play 4th line center.

I cannot see Hainsey being accepted in any trade. Replace these two players with a #1 pick in 2019 and with Borgmann .

Leafs receives a #1 LW, a #1 RHD, and a #3 RW for the above players.

I wonder if Lindholm + Neilson would be traded straight up Braun.

Toronto - Carolina

Maple Leafs trade William Nylander, Jake Gardiner, Josh Leivo, Garrett Sparks and a 1st Rd pick in 2019 to the Carolina Hurricanes for Brett Pesce, Michael Ferlund, Petr Mrazek and Teuvo Teravainen


1.) 05 Nov 2018 03:39:49
I think Carolina passes. Teravainen is the better forward and Pesce is the better defenseman.

At this point, I hope Leafs trade Nylander for someone who is signed long term. Teravainen needs re-signing this summer. Would hate to have Dubas needing to sign Matthews, Marner, and Teravainen all at once. Could be a real headache if Teravainen is asking for as much as Nylander wants.

2.) 05 Nov 2018 03:57:21
Take out Sparks and Mrazek and if I am the Leafs I make this trade and than trade for Braun by trading Johnsson + Marincin + 3rd in 2020 for Braun

Leafs Defense than would cost:$22.5 MM

Reilly Pesce
Dermott Zaitsev
Hainsey Braun'

William Nylander, Josh Leivo and Frederik Gauthier to the Columbus Blue Jackets for Zack Werenski and Josh Anderson


1.) 01 Nov 2018 04:03:58
Not close. They wouldn't trade Werenski straight up for Nylander. He is one of the best defencman in the league already.

2.) 01 Nov 2018 04:12:06
I don't think you are offering enough here. That Werenski kid is looking dynamite. There is no way Columbus trades him for Nylander. Especially if they aren’t bringing in anyone to replace him. I mean, Columbus hasn’t had much luck on the draft floor with defensemen: Carlsson, Murray, Moore, Peeke, Collins. None of them are any good. Comumbus was really counting on those guys. They had to trade Johansson for Jones (a trade i would say Columbus won btw) . They really need Werenski
, and he is doing absolutely fantastic. A franchise player defenseman who has fit in stunningly beside Jones to make one of the best top pairs in the league.

Leivo + Gauthier doesn’t get you Anderson either. Anderson has been a real bright spot for Columbus. He’s picked up where he left off last year, he’s on pace for a career year of his own. He should have more goals and points than Leivo and Gauthier combined.

3.) 01 Nov 2018 13:52:13
Ya I don't think Columbus will trade a future star, Werenski looks like he will be one of the best defenceman in the league, and he already almost is, so with only Ryan Murray behind him I don't think Columbus would be willing to part ways.

Neither Laine or Matthews are worth $11 million a season. Heck, not even McDavid is worth $12.5 million a season. Oilers GM Chiarelli is an idiot and the NHL should have voided McDavid's contract. They need to renegotiate the CBA and scale back these ridiculous salaries. The max contract per season should be $10 million per season instead of $15.6 million per season.

Horrible trade proposal. Strome is a bum who is the poor man's Jason Allison. He can't skate. Only way he scores is if he stands at the front of the net to put in rebounds. As for Chychryn he is always injured and once you're damaged goods, well you're damaged goods. Arizona can keep those jabronis.

No way in hell Matthews is worth US$12 million to US$12.5 million a season on a long-term deal of 8 years. Marner is easily worth US$9.5 million on an 8 yr deal which I think is fair. Matthews is around US$10 million a season like his buddy Eichel on an 8 yr deal which is more than fair. McDavid's contract of US$12.5 million a season was assinine on his GM's (Chiarelli) part and is not even worth US$11 million/ season.

Frederik Gauthier and Josh Leivo should be demoted to the AHL or traded for low end draft picks because they both suck the bag!
