Toronto - Anaheim

Kadri, Lilejgren and a 2019 1st Rd pick in exchange for Lindholm and Ritchie

Toronto - Carolina

Depends on whether Hamilton is traded

Gardiner for Mrazek and a 2019 2nd Rd pick


1.) 16 Jan 2019 13:53:20
The Anaheim trade is huge. Any way we could swap kadri and lilejgren for nylander and borgman. I think kadri with Ritchie would be a huge 3rd shut down line.

Marleau Matthew's kapanen
Hyman Tavares marner
Ritchie kadri brown
Johnson lindholm Ennis

Reilly lindholm
Dermot hainsey
Rosen Ozhiganov

Lindholm is steady and reliable. Has a good contract. I’d like to see him in blue and white for sure. Ducks, as always, have an arsenal of high quality young defenders. They may be willing to let him go. I suppose if you are trading Liljegren then we would have to switch Lindholm to his off side. Or alternatively, we could keep Liljegren and offer up one of our left hand defense prospect players, which we have a bit of a treasure chest full ourselves.

Hurricanes - Maple Leafs

Maple Leafs trade N. Kadri, A. Johnsson and a 2019 1st Rd pick to the Hurricanes for D. Hamilton and M. Ferlund.

Maple Leafs need grit on both D and at Forward and this trade addresses a team need. Kadri has been inconsistent at times but is a former 30 goal scorjer for the past two years. Johnsson has speed to burn with upside and a 2019 1st Rd pick seals the deal for Toronto


1.) 12 Jan 2019 17:16:32
I think if a deal between these 2 teams happen this is badically what would happen. Carolina gets a solid 2 way center who becomes their 2nd line center. A position kadri would excell way better at. Johnsson is the speedy winger the canes would be looking for.

Kadri is considered a steal of a contract and fits the kind of term and salary the canes are looking for being a low budget team. Johnsson would ge looking for 2-3 milliin on a 3-5 year term which is what canes can afford.

Hamilton and ferlund are what leafs need.

You hit the nail on this one. great deal for both sides.

2.) 12 Jan 2019 18:30:41
I think you have enough on the table here to catch Carolina’s attention. We weaken our center and LW depth and that would really hurt. It really would. But adding Hamilton to 1RHD is a huge plus.

I’m fence sitter on this one. I just love Kadri. And Johnsson too. Ferland has had a couple concussions this year. I don’t know if he would make a good throw-in. Maybe just a trade based around Hamilton for Kadri + pick/ prospect might work? What do you think Nylandeagic? If we could just do Kadri + for Hamilton, keeping Ferland and Johnsson our of the deal, would you be willing to do that?

3.) 13 Jan 2019 01:37:40
Your assessment of what Leafs need is correct.

As some have stated correctly Kadri's contract is a steal in terms of money and years which should be the reason why a #1 should not be involved. Plus the Leafs would be getting Ferland with concussion issues. So if they could massage the trade to include #2 or another lower prospect then yes I would make the trade.

Dougie Hamilton and Michael Ferlund to the Maple Leafs in exchange for Nazem Kadri, Timothy Lilejgren, Jeremy Bracco, a 2019 1st Rd pick and a 2020 2nd Rd pick


1.) 07 Jan 2019 16:35:15
At first glance, it looks like an overpayment. But then you realize that Leafs are only losing Kadri off the current roster, but gain a 1RHD and a solid depth winger in return. We don’t bring in a center, but we can use any of Marleau, Nylander, or even Lindholm as 3C. Kadri hasn’t been having the best year so far anyway. Trading him would suck knowing how much it depletes our depth at center. We would still probably want a better replacement. I mean, let’s face it, if Matthews gets hurt again, is Marleau really an adequate replacement?

Hamilton is a very good player. He likely won’t be cheap. Carolina isn’t desperate to unload him I’m sure. They have lots of time to hear offers. This is an aggressive offer and one Carolina would have to consider seriously. If Hamilton isn’t the guy, this same offer would likely get you another player of similar caliber (Montour etc) .

2.) 07 Jan 2019 18:07:08
My only problem with this trade-do we really want Hamilton? A 25 year old RHD that is traded that often spells trouble.
This package could net a very good young RHD though. Might be able to save a pick as well. To replace Kadri as a 3C, the Leafs could look at Schenn or Sutter. They could be had relatively cheap.

3.) 07 Jan 2019 18:10:29
Montour and Ritchie from the Ducks for Nazem Kadri, Timothy Lillegren, Jeremy Bracco, a 2019 1st Rd pick and a 2020 2nd Rd pick?
Then see if you could swing a deal with the Blues for Schenn or the Canucks for Sutter to fill the 3C position.

4.) 07 Jan 2019 20:52:34
Pretty big difference between Sutter and Schenn. Lol. Of the two, obviously Schenn is the preferred choice if available. Canucks would love to dump Sutter’s contract, I’m sure. A bit of an albotross, they may find it hard to trade him without providing some incentive to the receiving team. Just my opinion, but I think Sutter is probably best we avoid.

5.) 07 Jan 2019 21:39:19
Schenn is absolutely the best choice, but would cost more. I think Sutter would be okay under Babcock. You may be right though. Leafs just need a PK type center for 3C.

6.) 07 Jan 2019 23:37:06
The big attraction for Kadri is his contract obviously. I still think he has the potential to win a Selke trophy one day. Just an absolute solid all round player, he’s really transformed his career since Babcock took over. Long gone are the cheap shots and dives.

Kadri now is a mature 2-way forward that can be used in all situations and is capable of scoring 30 goals. Having a 'down' year this season, he’s still on pace to score almost 20 goals and 50 points. All at a very attractive $4.5M for the next four year. What team wouldn’t love a player like Kadri? It would be tough to lose a player like him. It really would.

Islanders - Maple Leafs

Islanders trade Scott Mayfield, Ryan Pulock, Brock Nelson and Thomas Greiss to the Maple Leafs for William Nylander, Nikita Zaitsev and Garrett Sparks

Maple Leafs and Wild

Maple Leafs trade Brock Nelson and a 2019 1st Rd pick to the Wild for Nino Niedereitter


1.) 01 Jan 2019 21:46:25
Neidereitter is looking good this year. Damn good player. Big, physical, has lots of term left on a reasonable contract. He is RW, though I’m sure we could use him on his off side, same as Hyman. I’ve always liked Neidereitter, and if for whatever reason Minnesota ever decides they would make this trade, then Leafs should take advantage of it. I really like Nelson a lot too, but his status as pending UFA coupled with the fact we are not going to be able to afford to re-sign him makes this trade so appealing.

2.) 01 Jan 2019 22:50:53
NM instead of Niedereitter, can I have Jeff Zucker.

Maple Leafs - Devils

Ron Hainsey for Ben Lovejoy


1.) 20 Dec 2018 01:35:25
I like the target

However, I don't think the devils want an older player at this point in there progression as a team.

It's possible they deal lovejoy but for a younger more controllable player or a draft pick.

2.) 20 Dec 2018 02:30:39
I’d rather just stick with Hainsey. Hainsey plays more minutes, has better stats, already has chemistry with Rielly, veteran (he’s even older than Lovejoy), and has cup pedigree.

Not knocking Lovejoy or nothing, but why rock the boat for what, in this case, is such a small piece. If we could find a way to get Lovejoy without losing anyone off the current roster, that might be a better option.

3.) 20 Dec 2018 06:16:59
Lovejoy's a UFA after this season anyways, I could see the Leafs pursuing him as a free agent if the price is right.

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?
