Leafs: Rielly
Oilers : Draisaitl.

I don’t see either team making that trade.

Draisaitl at $8.5 carries a heavy price tag. And we don’t have anyone to take Reilly’s place just now. We could try running Gard’s and Dermott and figure out a plug for 3LHD, but I’m not convinced it would work. And after losing Gard’s next year (and probably Hainsey too), we have no one in the system.

Oilers would probobaly love Reilly on the team. Don’t think they would want to trade Draisaitl for him though.

Agreed LeafsGM. Adding Draisaitl would necessitate moving one if the core 4, and the defense would be even worse off than before.

Pass on this trade.

I guess if you want to trade Reilly to Edmonton which makes no sense at least let's make it make sense

Reilly and Brown
Rfa Nurse and Puljujarvi

That's about all that makes sense. Oilers add more offence on back end and more defence on front end while Toronto does opposite. so in conclusion what's the point?

This makes zero sense for Toronto, pass.

5.) 21 Jul 2018 19:41:08
Exactly Torontobuds. that was my point. neither team wins or loses so why bother.

My proposal was simply an exercise in what a trade involving Reilly to Edmonton would look like.

Sakic would have a good laugh before he hangs up. A soft, one trick pony, overpaid winger and a bottom pairing defenseman for a 1D. I know you have trouble thinking unbiased LeafsGM, but this is a new level of silliness.

LeafsGM is definitely one of the most biased posters on this site and we all agree he has zero credibility.

Couturier more than makes up for being a slightly below point per game player by being a center, that is a far more valuable position and being far, far better defensively than Marner. Unfortunately, as Leaf fans have discovered, if you're an all offense and no defense team, you're barely a playoff team.

You also have to take into account that Marner plays in the Leafs system, where none of the leaf forwards are tasked with helping out defensively. If Marner played for any other team his point totals would go down, as any other NHL team requires their forwards to help out defensively and not just hang in the neutral zone waiting for a stretch pass. Plus about 3 mil in overpay on Marner's contract.

That's the thing Leafs1994, the Jets and Leafs just aren't good trading partners. There isn't really anything the Leafs have that the Jets need. Lowry and Copp form a high end shutdown line that consistently win most of their matchups, so trading one for a marginal improvement offensively and worse defensively player doesn't make us better as we'd be losing our shutdown line.

Either for a defensively responsible, but better offensively 3C or a top 4D.

Not that either would be one for one necessarily. We'd probably need to add depending on who we're talking about.
