To Detroit:
2020 2nd, Brown, Holl
To Leafs:
Glendening, Jensen

Detroit will probably trade one of Vanek or Nyquist, so that way they will clear cap space and this trade will work.

Zaitsev, 2019 4th, 2019 7th, maybe a prospect as a thank you for taking Zaitsev (Gagner or Engvall)
To Leafs:

The Rangers are likely going to trade Hayes and Zuccarello so I think they will be able to afford Zaitsev's contract. We just get some depth in return.

*Ozhiganov, Mcquaid


1.) 19 Feb 2019 21:28:39
Both are decent deals.

2.) 19 Feb 2019 22:44:00
Both deals are pretty good.

Just in case anyone hasn't been paying attention mcquaid is a hot topic on toronto sports shows. also the rangers love their russians and georgiev is a top priority to keeping him happy as he is their future. Zaitsev and georgiev are both from a small town of Moskva. not moscow but moskva. zaitsev and georgiev lived by one another growing up and while zaitsev 4 years older was still a huge influence on georgiev playing goal. neighborhood friends playing pond hockey goes a long way regardless of age. this rumor may come true straight up zaitsev for mcquaid. just puttin that out there.

3.) 20 Feb 2019 00:44:52
If it does come true the that is a huge win for Dubas and the leafs.

4.) 20 Feb 2019 08:53:03
I'm sure others beat me to punch but Gagner traded over weekend. Was never property of Leafs. On loan to Marlies.

5.) 20 Feb 2019 04:25:04
Couple low level depth trade on offer here. Both are pretty solid looking deals. CapFriendly is undergoing maintenance, so I couldn’t check salaries. But knowing it’s MostLeaf posting, I’m sure everything is in order there. Glendening is center, which would be the reason to pursue him. Although Gauthier isn’t doing that bad this year, so Glendening might end up wing for us to replace Brown. Either way, he’s a solid get who knows Babcock’s system and would fit well.

Nyquist is probably as good as gone is my guess. Vanek didn’t bring much at last year’s deadline, and he insisted on NMC to re-sign this year. I don’t think he’s going to accept a trade, and Detroit wouldn’t get anything for him anyway.

To Ottawa:
Ozhiganov, Zaitsev, Brown, 2020 2nd, Bracco
To Leafs:
Dzingle, Demelo

To Detroit:
Lindholm, 2019 3rd, Timashov
To Leafs:
Glendening (Det retains 50%)

I know that seems like a lot to give up for Glendenning, but because Detroit retains salary we have to send Timashov



1.) 18 Feb 2019 20:07:33
Lines next year:

2.) 18 Feb 2019 21:19:36
Dzingel will cost a lot.

3.) 18 Feb 2019 21:42:49
I don’t know if you can get Dzingel without a 1st being in the package. He’s actually having a pretty damn good season.

There are a lot of outstanding unsigned UFA’s this year. Not all of them are going to re-sign with their current team. Ottawa has three alone, Dzingel being the “worst”.

Glendening is a good player. He’s been linked to the Leafs for a while now. Detroit is pretty tight against the cap. They might not want to retain any salary.

Looking good MostLeaf. I hate the thought of losing Timashov though. He’s having a good year. From what I’ve been reading he’s probably going to make the nhl. That’s fantastic. Leafs have a lot of depth at wing and Timashov is right up there with the best of them.

4.) 18 Feb 2019 23:16:33
Bracco is like a 1st, that is why I included him in the trade.

5.) 19 Feb 2019 00:29:13
Think Bracco is worth a 1st? He’s doing pretty good this year, but we still haven’t seen him play in the nhl yet. I don’t know. A 1st round pick, no matter how late, has a better chance at being a point per game player in the nhl than Bracco does. He just doesn’t project that high.

6.) 19 Feb 2019 01:21:53
My thinking was like this:
Bracco, Ozhiganov=Dzingle
Zaitsev, Brown, 2nd=Demelo.

7.) 19 Feb 2019 02:15:35
I’d offer Bracco and Liljegren for Dzingel then move Johnsson for a top 4 defencemen.

8.) 19 Feb 2019 08:51:23
Don't think Lindholm moves the needle for any opposing teams.

Glendenning would be a good get for 4th line.

Don't see OTT and TOR hooking up on deal.



18 Feb 2019 19:10:45
To Tampa:
Ozhiganov, 2020 2nd, Brown, Timashov
To Leafs:

Now I know trades between two contending teams in the same division are rare, but they do still happen (Rask for Raycroft remember that?).

What pisses me off is that the leafs had this guy, and they just gave up on him. Now he is a top 4D on the current top team in the league.

However, Tampa also has a surplus of other NHL proven D, and they would probably be ok with trading Stralman and getting something back for him while they still can.

Just an Idea


1.) 18 Feb 2019 21:46:29
I don’t know. Old man Stralman doesn’t come to mind right away when I think of a rental. Its not so much dealing with Tampa I don’t like. It’s the thought of bringing in a guy like that when we already have Hainsey on board. I know he’s doing well in Tampa, but how would he fit on our team? He would have to be third line. Not exactly the spot I would think we get a rental for.



17 Feb 2019 03:23:34
Timashov, Lindholm, 2020 2nd
To Leafs:

To a team:
Brown, Zaitsev
To Leafs:



1.) 17 Feb 2019 06:18:30
Good deal on islander deal. if u deal other deal to edmonton it might work if salary comes back.

2.) 17 Feb 2019 19:28:47
MostLeaf. This is great! I was hoping you would post something. Hadn’t seen you on site for a few days. How’s it hanging buddy?

As far as I know, Filpulla hates Babcocks guts. So I don’t think he would accept a trade to Leafs. He has NMC, so can determine his own future. And besides, NYI are doing outstanding this year. Top of the class, they have a ton of cap space left. I expect they will be buyers this year, not sellers. While it would be nice to bring in a proven winner like Filpulla that knows Babcocks system and all, I just don’t think it’s going going to happen.

Is Brown enough to entice a team to take on Zaitsev’s contract? I honestly have no clue. If you were going to take a cap dump like Zaitsev, what would you ask for?

3.) 17 Feb 2019 20:31:03
I actually had no idea that Fippula had a NMC, but I'm guessing your right, he probably won't waive it to come here.

For Zaitsev, I would probably want a 2nd round pick or prospect or another roster player, but I'm not a GM so I have no idea what they would take. I think it depends on the teams cap situation, If someone were to trade Zaitsev to the leafs for example, I would expect a 1st rounder coming as well. But let's say it's Arizona, then I would say a 2nd rounder and a low level prospect.

4.) 17 Feb 2019 21:32:41
I see what you’re getting at. A bottom feeding team like Arizona would never trade a 1st. It might just be first overall.

5.) 17 Feb 2019 23:10:28
The pain in the ass thing about Zaitsev is that his contract is so long. It’s not just a cap dump. It’s a CAP DUMP! You know what I’m saying. That’s why I think Leafs are going to be stuck with him for another year or two. The cost of dumping him right now is too high.



11 Feb 2019 18:18:39
To Oilers:
To leafs:

I saw Chiasson is moving up the trade bait board, maybe the leafs add some scoring while dumping a bit of cap?


1.) 12 Feb 2019 00:45:22
Chiasson is having a good year, but as a pending UFA I’d be reluctant to trade Brown for him. Chiasson isn’t much of an upgrade over Brown if at all, and we don’t need to save cap this year. We can always move Brown in the off season if needed. And for that matter, we could just wait and make an offer for Chiasson this summer too. This way it doesn’t cost us a roster player for a depth rental.

We can't afford Petrovic this year or next year, so the first trade is a no.

I would take Hainsey over Mcquaid.

Philly would want more.

I feel like Dubas is going to keep the 2020 1st until he knows for sure that the leafs won't need it. Due to the cap crunch, he may have to trade some players that would make the leafs worse, so the 1st may be something he holds onto in case things don't go according to plan.

If we are trading for a top 6D I would rather take Jensen from Detroit. Mcquaid is good and all but I feel he would just be depth. Unless we are getting rid of Zaitsev, I feel Jensen is the better choice.
Jensen for some reason always plays really well against the leafs, so maybe he would play even better in a leafs uniform. He puts up more points anyway.

The second trade seems fair but remember Carolina wants more offence so I don't think they give us Pesce for two D and a penalty killer.

This is interesting, but I don't leafs do the first think the leafs do the first trade for a couple of reasons. First, I heard Detroit wanted to re-sign Nyquist and Howard, so even if this trade does happen they may just go back to Detroit next year. Second, The leafs will need a true top 4D back if they want to trade Gardiner. We don't have the depth right now to replace him, and Jensen is a good top 6D but I don't think he would be good in our top 4.

I don't think the Rangers will give you Zuccarello for that package. They will want at least a 1st and a prospect for him. Zaitsev for Mcquaid is definitely something that Dubas should look at though.

I like the Jensen trade but I feel you would only have to send one of Lindgren or Gordeev and not both.

For now I would take Bracco over Ritchie, but things may change next year.
