TOR: Dotchin

TBL: Carrick

Minor trade but Dotchin is a big bodied right handed dman who could replace polak. He is young and has the mean streak polak has. Not sure if Tampa really needs Carrick but something like him or a draft pick to snag Dotchin. Dotchin has been struggling to get into the lineup but it is what it is with the D Tampa has.

There is still some room to improve with Dotchin but I believe he would fit perfectly on the third pairing and I think Babcock would love him. He would definitely stick up for the young guns

I am sure the Goat would be running around like a lamb on the Marlies.

Dotchin is a vile, low hitter and should have already been banned from hockey.

He is clearly not the type of player Babs wants. Have you ever listened to anything Babs says about the type of player he wants on the team?


2.) 18 Feb 2018 13:47:36
So why does he like polak so much? Polak can be a borderline dirty player yet Babs still praises him.


3.) 18 Feb 2018 14:59:42
There's a difference between overaggressive and dirty. Polak is out to rough someone up, while Dotchin is trying to literally break bones.

TOR: C. Miller, Hague

VGK: JVR, Carrick

Vegas says no. They won’t want an aging UFA, and Hague has a lot more potential than Carrick.


2.) 10 Feb 2018 17:02:18
JVR's only 3 years older than Miller.

And while I might tend to agree on Hague; he has no NHL experience while Carrick does. Hague has yet to play against men. It's expected that a guy 6'6" can dominate at junior levels. He may not develop into an NHL'r even all things point to that being the case.

Vegas is going to the playoffs. Why wouldn't they want to take a stab at the cup. They've beaten all the teams in the West and the East save a few.

It's not like they are giving up 1st rounders.


3.) 10 Feb 2018 17:30:32
I have a hard time seeing Vegas give up any young players for a rental. And I think the Leafs would be looking for a higher return for JVR than Miller. Leafs are going to playoffs too, and may want to keep JVR. Unless the return deal involves at least a first and a 2nd line RHD.

Carrick has no real future with the Leafs. I would trade him for Hague if Vegas would do that.


4.) 11 Feb 2018 01:21:21
JVR and the Toronto Maple Leafs will be a duo for the next few, - 6 years.

JVR has only one desire to play and retire in T. O.

Future is bright in T. O., just be aware of scary "D" drone.

Go Toronto Maple Leafs.

Stay the course and away from trolls that matter not.

gcolpitts:

That means an extension will be required before the deadline.

This is a rebuilding team that will have money issues after next year. They won't be able to afford giving him a 8-9 M contract he can demand in free agency. If he extends for 6-7M for longer term then great. But otherwise he will be Carolina or San Jose bound.

The Leafs can't afford to get nothing for him. If Lou thinks keeping him for one playoff run is worth getting nothing for him; then the Leafs need to get a new GM.


6.) 12 Feb 2018 00:44:30
After all that Lou has done righting the ship, you're suggesting the Leafs need a new GM if JVR walks?

JVRs so overhyped, he's basically a role player, a niche player. He's not worth 6M anyways. He plays no defense, is a slow skater and turns the puck over more often than he makes decent passes. He's a complimentary piece, and he's nice to toss pucks near on the PP or sustained offensive pressure times. But he's scored like 3 goals where he was more than 5 feet from the net, and does nothing else.

While he's certainly nice to have so that Marner can bounce pucks off him and into twine, long term he'll be a cap killer for whoever overpays him this offseason.


7.) 13 Feb 2018 00:55:35
Yep. It's horrible management to let a player walk for nothing when you can trade him for players/ picks/ prospects; just for one playoff round in which the Leafs won't get past Boston.

Lou's trades have not been all that good. Essentially squat for Kessel, Pylon, and others. He brought in useless players like Fehr, Laich, Boyle, Greening, Michalek, Cowen, in those trades; signed Moore, keeps Marincin, and Rychel.

That's a lot of utter garbage for a premier winger, a top notch RH pylon and a couple of 2nds.

His best deal to date was getting rid of Clarkson for another player who can't play.

Now he can't move his UFA's; a generally easy task if you ask for reasonable return.

Stellar GM.


8.) 13 Feb 2018 02:13:21
I agree with MarsBars assessment of JVR. Eberle and RNH make $6M per, and JVR is nowhere as complete a player as either of those two. Heading into the playoffs with JVR on the team is such a liability defensively, that it makes more sense to trade him and get some return value than it does to either let him walk in the off season or overpay him to pop a few goals in the net. Brown makes $2M per, scores 20 goals, and is a better all-round player. Is it worth the extra $4M+ a year for the 10 more goals JVR scores than Brown? In my opinion, the answer is no. Especially when you consider that JVR is responsible for allowing at least 10 more goals a year into our net than Brown is.

As far as JVR is concerned, our best bet this year is to find him a new home on a team that is desperate to add scoring before heading into the finals. If we can get a RHD and a 1st, then we are good. Keeping him as our own rental player makes no sense to me. And paying him $6M+ a year is almost as silly.

TOR: Edmundson, Stastny

STL: JVR, Bozak, Polak

Love Edmundsons game. Solid defender. Not sure of stastnys value but could be decent. Every player involved has 1 year left on their contract. JVR could give STL extra scoring help while Edmundson provides TOR with prime defending.

Hyman - Matthews - Nylander
Marleau - Kadri - Brown
Leivo - Stastny - Marner
Komarov - Moore - Kapanen

Rielly - Edmundson
Gardiner - Hainsey
Dermott - Zaitsev

Stastny's 32 and 7M. He's going to want more.

Edmundson is almost 24 and is making 1M. That price shows you how the Blues (who know him best) have evaluated him. And he's LHD which completely misses the boat where the Leafs are concerned.

Bad Deal.

it has been said ristolainen will be an over payment but I think it would be worth it. Toronto extends JVR and he could replace Kane


TOR: Ristolainen

BUF: JVR, Bracco, Gardiner, 1st

krh27

1.) 11 Dec 2017 00:28:44
Way too much for him.


2.) 12 Dec 2017 00:38:08
Rasmus's defense is suspect just like Gardiners. He is a consistent minus player every single year, no matter where he played.

No thanks, he won't change.


3.) 12 Dec 2017 18:34:47
If him being a minus player is all you are concerned about then why don't you look at who he is playing with, how many minutes he plays, and the lines he plays against. Jack eichle is -11 on the year and was -13 last year. He would compliment Reilly really well and he's a solid 2way young defender. You can not compare gardiners defence to risto. You throw risto in a Toronto line up and he will be better all around considering the players he would have around him.


4.) 14 Dec 2017 15:08:05
It's a stupid trade and I was being polite by giving you just one aspect of why not to make this trade.

Your argument of who he plays with is irrelevant. Solid two way defenders with offensive talent do not have consistently negative +/ -'s.

Yes, I can compare a Dman who makes the same bad plays as Gardiner.

There are better defencemen you can get for the package you offered.

You must be a Sabres fan.

TOR: Ristolainen

BUF: Gardiner, Bracco, Dermot, 1st 2018

1.) 03 Dec 2017 21:35:20
Too much from the Leafs I wouldn't do it.


2.) 04 Dec 2017 08:42:10
Buffalo's not trading their star 23 yr. old RHD.

Not even for an overpayment like that.


3.) 04 Dec 2017 08:57:33
2019 1st plus Brocks would do.


4.) 06 Dec 2017 07:32:48
Too much for Risto.

am I the only one who think the leafs messed up by letting tj brennan go?

krh27

1.) Nah, I don't think they made a mistake. Brennan is utter garbage playing for Chicagos farm team

I would too but it will take a lot more. Toronto will need to over pay for risto. I'd love him in Toronto though.
