Leafs- nylander
Vegas- Theodore

Leafs get a top 4 two way d man that's young and on a good contract. Vegas gets a young goal scorer that they can afford and need with the loss of Neal this off season.

It’s a good suggestion, but I don’t think Theodore is the guys for us. It’s unsaid, but I assume Gardiner gets dumped after the acquisition of Theodore?

Vegas would have to add. Theodore is a decent player, but Vegas gave him that huge contract after only a single good year of play. It’s risky. I mean, Theodore doesn’t hit much, doesn’t block a whole lot of shots, not the most gifted offensively.

Vegas would have to add. Nic Hague throw in maybe would do it?

I agree LeafsGM,

But I would rather go for Tuch as an add-on and maybe round out with Johnnson heading to Vegas with Willy for that package. Trade Giveaway to Arz. for Chychrun.

Trade for a RHD please, no more of this LHD bull.

Leafs- Nylander
Preds- Fabbro and 2019 1st.

Preds are stacked on d and are looking for scoring which nylander can provide. Fabbro has no imidiate impact this year which if nylander doesn't sign than neither does he (for the leafs anyways), but if fabbro can reach his potential he'd be a solid two way defender that the leafs could use, he's cheap and they get the first to compensate for the fact that nylander is currently nhl ready. I don't think thenleafs cup window has opened I think it starts next year, so if Liljegren and fabbro can make the team next year the leafs d will be significantly improved hense their window opens


1.) 11 Oct 2018 20:42:42
With Fabbro's questionable knee, i'd rather snag Thomas or Kyrou. I like the idea of trading with STL though, they have tons of forward prospects and are in win-now mode. Seems like a good fit.

2.) 11 Oct 2018 20:44:03
Sorry i didn't quite read your post lol. I was thinking fabbro from StL. Fabbri is a solid prospect, but i'd want a little more.

3.) 12 Oct 2018 00:17:42
Preds would have to add. If they threw in a useful piece like Jarnkrok or someone along those lines, I think Leafs would have to seriously consider this offer. It would save us money, provide us with a roster player, a prospect, and a 1st.

4.) 12 Oct 2018 03:21:31
I like it, but add in Hartman and a clause if Fabbro does not sign the Leafs get an extra pick.

He is currently in college and not signed.

If leafs cannot sign nylander before start of season

Colorado- Conor Timmins and Col 2019 1st

Trade gets leafs a top tier affordable right handed defence prospect who can both push offence and is good defensively. Dubas May have fimiliarity with him as he's played for the greyhounds. Also get a mid-late first. Colorado gets a very good arguably elite winger to give them a scary top 6 to compete in the tough central division.


1.) 02 Oct 2018 17:59:33
I like this trade a lot. Timmins is another highly ranked defensive prospect, which the Leafs need plenty of if they're going to commit almost 40M to four forwards. That first gives Dubas another opportunity to flex his drafting muscles, and Timmins gives him the freedom to not have to focus on defense high in the draft. Colorado is a mystery - they could repeat as a playoff team or fall off a cliff. Being a top-line-dependant team makes them almost one Mackinnon or Landeskog injury away from being a lottery team.

2.) 02 Oct 2018 23:39:35
If that first rounder was the one from Ottawa that would be really nice.

3.) 03 Oct 2018 07:05:20
Connor Timmins has been having serious concussion problems and as much as I like his skill set and right handedness I would be Leary about getting damaged goods.

Leafs and Florida shake things up.

Leafs- marner, dermott, kapinen and 2018 1st

Florida- Ekblad

Toronto gives up a potentially elite winger who in my opinion isn't being used properly in Toronto, another potential top 6 winger, a potential top 4 d man and a mid- late first. Florida is a dumpster fire who need scoring and as good as Ekblad is, he isn't panning out to be the franchise type d man he was supposed to be but clearly for the leafs he instantly improves their back end. Florida clearly isn't winning any time soon and they get back some real good assets for the future. Toronto gives up a lot but they get the d man they need and to they'll have to give to get.


1.) 17 Jan 2018 18:17:21
If he isn't the franchise type D-man he was supposed to be, then why are you trading some of our highest ceiling/ elite level talent and prospects/ picks for him? I get Chiarelli might have set some sort of bar when he traded Hall for Larsson, but I don't think Leafs management is that rushed to make the same type of dumb mistake. Plus with his cap hit $7.5M, I would rather we go after a FA (Doughty or Karlsson) but only after we figure out our own cap situation with the young kids.

2.) 18 Jan 2018 00:52:32
a 5th OA, an improving D prospect, another 1st rounder and a 1st.

All for a Dman that is taking his team nowhere and is having a "meh" season, and he costs 7.5M for the next 7.5 years.

Not a chance.



17 Aug 2017 17:37:05
Tor- JVR and Bracco or conditional 3rd.
Nash- fabbro.

Tor gets the d man, young with lots of potential, fits in with the rebuild and won't be playing in nashvilles top 4 for the foreseeable future ( not because of lack of skill Nashville has arguably best top 4 d core in league). Nashville gets top 6 power forward to replace James Neil, on a good contract and can help them win next season. Pick is conditional on JVR resigning. If he doesn't resign they get bracco if he does they get the 3rd.


1.) 17 Aug 2017 19:48:27
Wouldn't even do Bracco for Fabbro at this point.
