Karlsson grab puck last game in Ottawa he is done there and he knows it . Other two r staying where they are.

Karlsson will want to be highest paid defencemen in league. I don't think he fits Toronto it would be tough leafs pay Karlsson more that Matthews. This summer I have Matthews slotted at 10.5 million.

If Leafs wait til next offseason maybe it's 12.5 million as next year if healthy Matthews pots more than 50 goals.
Marner would easily go from 7 million as I see him slotted to 9 million if he gets 90 points next year.

So what do you pay Karlsson on extension after next season Randy? Can you sign Karlsson 10 million next year and are u willing to sign him 8 years?

You have to remember though Toronto has some of the best asveetising money to be had, that's a selling feature such a huge hockey market there's other ways to make money for high end pros in toronto, you tend to have a very negative view on any proposals that are not your own.

Id sign karlson 10 mil 8 years top heavy but no ntc so a team can get him 4 or 5 million actual salary in 5 or 6 years if we have to move him if we wi 3 cups in the next 6 years having sone bad years at the end of his contract doesn't seem that bad does it.

Karlsson: 9G, 62pts, -25, 58Hts, 120Blk, 55Tk, 106Gv
Gardiner: 5G, 52pts, +9, 51Hts, 103Blk, 39Tks, 105Gc

Gardiner is having a very good year. Over the last two years, Gardiner has gotten better and better, while Karlsson has gotten worse.

Gardiner is the poor man’s Karlsson. He’s going to be at least $5M less. Who would you rather have, Gardiner @ $6.5M or Karlsson @ $10.5M? .

@LeafsGM

Excellent comparison, and I believe you were making a similar one to OEL when denouncing any trades for him. The Leafs need a big two-way defenseman, not more of the same.

Though Randy wasn't singling out Karlsson in his initial proposition, he tossed around a few names. I'd rather snag the rights to Doughty if nothing big happens this off-season.


6.) 09 Apr 2018 01:42:35
Doughty: 10G, 60pts, +23, 127Hts, 128Blk, 17Tks, 79Gv

Doughty is a better player than both Gardiner and Karlsson. Unlike Karlsson, Doughty’s stats held up well this year. In fact, his numbers this year were just as good as, if not better than, his stats from his Norris winning year. Doughty wants to win. He has cup pedigree, perrenial Norris Trophy candidate, he logs almost 30:00 minutes a night ice time, is used in all situations, This is a guy that is worth $12M a year 8 years, and may be the only defenseman in the league right now to command that kind of money.

I think Leafs will take a wait and prove it approach this year before they decide who to extend an offer too, and that includes their own Jake Gardiner, who like I said, has given himself the chance to receive a big payday next year. Whether it’s from the Leafs or not yet remains to be seen.

Your right again Karlsson will cost leafs tons of assets and at 10 million your telling Reilly this guy is twice as good as you are. Leafs have been fighting their defenceman tooth and nail on salary.

Karlsson turns 28 in may I don't think this is fit for Leafs. Toronto can swing to the fences on John Carlson and hope it works out. If it doesn't look a lower tier someone to fill that role. Justin fault, mike stone Calgary or Tanev


Randy

Doughty is pretty happy living in LA LA Land don't think he will want to leave that environment. Leafs just need to be patient no big ticket items back there please. We will know something when Babcock has his end of season press conversation when leafs get ellinanated let's just see how playoffs go and we cross our fingers.


8.) 09 Apr 2018 02:21:49
All these guys knocking Gardiner cause of his giveaways, but in this category his numbers are comparable to Karlsson, Burns, Carlson, Subban, just to name a few.

All the best offensive defensemen have high turnover rates because a lot of times, especially late in a game we are losing, they will be looking to make that breakout pass to a rushing forward hoping for an odd man rush. They get caught trying to make that stretch pass and turnover happens.

Jvr komorov and a 2nd
Hoffman 50 % retained

Add a prospect if needed maybe rychel or someone who is not going to crack the leafs lineup

You get a lesser jvr for 2 more years but at just over 2.5 million.

Ottawa can then flip the ufas for more picks and prospects.

Dump bozak for a pick to a contender say pens.

Look at going for the cup later. Get some of the kids in the lineup to see what you have lines become

Hyman matthews nylander
Hoffman marleau marner
Leivo kadri kapanen
Martin goat brown

D and goalies stay the same

Could rearrange that forward group if you don't want marleau at centre to
Hyman matthews marner
Hoffman nylander brown
Marleau kadri kapanen
Martin goat leivo

All 3 ufas up front are quite expendable with the right piece coming back

Randy

1.) 15 Jan 2018 23:33:19
this doesn't address the leafs main need and uses their most valuable (possibly expendable) asset. Waste of a deal.


 

 

27 Dec 2017 08:24:26
My last post didn't get any love or hate sp let's see if we can shake that up a bit.
Carrick and a 2nd
For girgenson and a 4th

Then with having bozaks replacement send bozak tor 4th buf 4th to pens for cole and a 2nd

Am I blackballed guys? I haven't gotten any comments two straight posts.


2.) 30 Dec 2017 22:28:33
I just think they can’t complain about your comments b.

Kind of expecting a bit of heat here for this one. But what about jvr carrick valiev to calgary for dube fox valimaki and 2 third round picks?

Calgary is going to want to add some skill up front to get scoring from more then just gaudreau. You switch tchachuk to the right drop frolik to the the 3rd.

Toronto opens up room in the lineup for some young guys to come up. And stocks with a 1st 2nd and 3rd round prospect. Toronto may have to take salary if so send us stajan to bary on robidas island or lupul lane or whatever. The picks are to make it a quality for quantity trade incase the prospects flop.

Im going to get a lot of flack for this, but here it goes

Marner
Jvr
San jose 2nd 2018

Doughty
2018 1st
2019 1st

I don't know if this is enough from the leafs to get this return but its the only way i'd part with marner. Or something equivelant. A top tier defenseman 2 firsts and give them jvr amd a 2nd

Randy

1.) 28 Aug 2017 04:51:09
Bad deal for LA.


2.) 28 Aug 2017 05:06:58
Randy,

As great as it would be to land Doughty, he's an UFA after next season so if he really wants to sign in Toronto, and if the Leafs want to sign Doughty, then he will become a Leaf.

Presently, there is no way a team like LA is giving up 2 first round picks plus their franchise defenceman for this return. Sauce is right. Not a good deal for LA.


3.) 28 Aug 2017 18:37:07
Leafs core group

Matthews
Marner
Nylander
Bracco
Korshkov

Reilly
Zaitsev
Liljegren
Nielsen
Dermott

Anderson

Not saving you trade the other players we have but that's the future core.


4.) 28 Aug 2017 20:16:42
Randy -
JVR alone is Doughty. Marner is Brilliant; in fact, he's sexy on ice and letting him go for picks; although 1st rds would result in the city of Toronto being burned.


5.) 28 Aug 2017 23:26:22
jvr is better than the norris trophy winner drew doughty.


6.) 29 Aug 2017 03:52:45
Gcolpitts,
If I read correctly JVR does not equal Doughty. Doughty is game changer on the ice and a franchise defenceman. JVR is a complimentary player. Toronto couldn't land Harmonic, a 2nd pairing defenceman, using JVR and a 1st.

Davidmackin, your list is pretty spot on. The reason why the Leafs are unable to land a top 4 defender through trade is because teams covet players from your list and not so much the JVR's and Bozak's of this league.


7.) 29 Aug 2017 04:55:36
Pitts

Wow! Biased much? James Norris winner, Stanley cup champion, all star, Olympic gold medalist . JVR is not even close to his level.


8.) 29 Aug 2017 14:18:46
Definitely Bracco and Korshkov are tradeable assets! Kapanen is more part of that core than those 2.


9.) 29 Aug 2017 14:34:32
Strong biased opinion there haha. JvR isn't even close in terms of value to Doughty.


10.) 30 Aug 2017 00:31:48
Well atleast someones value is even further off then mine jvr matches doughty lol more like marner is 2 firsts and most of an elitr defender. Also marner may request to much and be a hassle to sign just seems the type. Also marner had a good year but small elite players don't always stay that way. Doughty is more then likely going to get resigned before any team has a chance I don't see him going to free agency. My value may be off but toronto would still be skilled up front and get the return you would need to trade a marner esque player but trade while the values high no?
