Kapanen, Stotts, 2020 3rd
To Leafs:
Pulock, 2020 5th

To Ott:
Zaitsev, Brown, Timashov, 2019 4th
To Leafs:

Marner-7 years 10.5 mill
Johnsson-2 years 3 mill

Sign a depth def. for 1 mill

Johnsson-Matthews-Nylander 21.634
Moore-Tavares-Marner 22.225
Hyman-Kadri-Bracco 7.6
Marleau-Petan-Mikheyev 7.95
*Gauthier 675k

Rielly-Dermott 5.9
Muzzin-Pulock 6
Rosen-Demelo 1.65
*Holl, FA 1.675

Anderson 5
Sparks 750k

Too much for Marner, that number should be below $10M. $10.5M would make him the highest paid winger in the NHL. Yes he has not scored 30 goals once. keep that in mind.

Kapanen, pick/prospect
To Leafs:

I heard the Islanders are trying to bring back Nelson and Lee, but I haven't heard anybody say they want to bring back Eberle. Therefore the Islanders will probably need someone to replace Eberle, and Kapanen could be that guy. One young gun for another. The leafs probably have to add since Pulock is a RHD who puts up a good amount of points, so we put in a pick or prospect.

Johnsson-1 year for 3 mill
Marner-7 years for 10.5 per

Johnsson-Tavares-Marner 24.5
Nylander-Matthews-Bracco 19.438866
Moore-Kadri-Hyman 7.525
Marleau-Petan-Mikheyev 7.925
*Gauthier 675K

The reason I put Bracco with Matthews and Nylander is because leafs management has said Braccos won't succeed outside a top 6 role. Then put him there! If you want your players to succeed help them! Nylander is playing LW at the worlds and doing a really good job. Maybe the leafs test him on the left side so they can put Bracco on his strong side. Also Hyman should start on the third line because of his injury so he has the best chance of recovering. Also this will test his scoring ability without Tavares and Marner. Babcock can always shuffle the lines if this doesn't work out.

Rielly-Pulock 7
Muzzin-Dermott 4.863333
Rosen-Demelo 1.65
*Borgman 700k

Dermott will obviously be hurt so Demelo will have to take his place to start the season, but he has played top 4 before so it shouldn't be a challenge for him. The leafs may need to sign a 7th d like Tim Heed or Cody Franson to start the season, but the leafs can afford that according to my terrible math.

Anderson 5
Sparks 750k

Forwards-$60.063866 mill
Defence-$14.213333 mill
Goalies+Kessel-$6.95 mill


Definitely enough room to sign a depth defenceman.

I forgot to put this trade:

To Ottawa:
Zaitsev, Brown, Timashov, Holmberg or late pick
To Leafs:

Uh, sorry.

Pulock is a good player. And I can see him being traded. Islanders have two a-prospects for RHD in their system. Both Dobson and Wilde are projected to be top 4. Which means Pulock is likely a prime trade candidate. I don’t know how far along in development Dobson and Wilde are, but from what I’ve read, they are nhl ready. If Lou wants to trade Pulock for Kapanen, I think Leafs should do it. Both Pulock and Kapanen are 2nd tier players in their respective positions. I’m pretty sure we’ve seen the best that either of these guys have to offer. The value seems fair, and this trade would help address needs for both teams lineups.

To Ottawa:
Zaitsev, Timashov, Woll, 2019 4th
To Leafs:

To Leafs:

RFA signings:
Johnsson-2 years 3 mill per
Kapanen-1 year 2.5 mill
Marner-7 years 10.5 mill per

Sign a 7th d or call up Borgamn

Johnsson-Tavares-Marner 24.5
Hyman-Matthews-Nylander 20.846366
Moore-Kadri-Kapanen 7.775
Mikheyev-Gauthier-Bracco 2.4425

*Borgman or 7th d 700k

Anderson 5


Total: $82.952199 mill

Never trade a goalie within your division ever heard of a guy named rask?

2.) 09 May 2019 12:26:36
Ok then switch Will and Engvall, not a big deal.

Ottawa is one of the few teams that can afford Zaitsev as a cap dump. He would help them reach their goal of ending dead last and drafting 1st overall. Or they could simply buy him out. I don’t know if the guys you are sending back is worth the $22.5M in salary Zaitsev would still be getting paid. You would probably have to boost that 4th to a 2nd.

Gustafsson May have been a one hit wonder. He’s a little old to be having a breakout season. There is zero doubt in my mind Chicago would make this trade. A 27 year old pending UFA who probably won’t be re-signed in exchange for a handful of very good young prospects and a 2nd would be a very smart move for them.

So I saw Editor-in-leaf had a new article about why the leafs should trade for Colin Miller. In the article they suggested this trade:

Brown, Engvall, 3rd
To Leafs:

What do you think?

My opinion, I think it's a bit of an underpayment considering Miller almost hit 30 points as a RHD for the second straight year. He also has great advanced stats and makes under 4 mill. However if the leafs could get him for what is being offered here I'm all for it.


1.) 05 May 2019 22:25:57
Full agreement here MostLeaf. I didn’t read the article, but from what I understand, the Mark Stone signing has Vegas in a bit of a cap squeeze even worse than ours, and as a result, they may be looking to unload salary.

Miller might be the odd one out. Vegas has a number of very good high quality defensemen, and a couple excellent prospects too. They can afford to trade a player like Miller without it seriously impacting their depth. Guys like Schmidt, Holden, and Hague make the decision a little easier on McPhee I’m sure.



02 May 2019 18:43:00
Just a quick little idea:

To NJ:
Brown, 2019 3rd
To leafs:


1.) 03 May 2019 00:05:44
Hell ya. Coleman is a bit of a late bloomer, but he’s doing pretty damn good on a semi-bad team. A versatile forward that can play all three positions signed for three more years at decent price, and a heavy hitter that can put the puck in the net, Coleman’s stats are going the right way. got to think he’s a good score for the Leafs if we could get him for the right price. Bonus: his ability to play center means we could trade Kadri after.

I doubt NJ does this, Brown doesn’t make them better in any way and the pick isn’t much incentive, but it’s a nice thought.

1. Marleau will not waive his NMC to go to a re-builder.

2. Fair, but next year the leafs are hanging on to Dermott and Nylander. How about Kapanen for Pulock?

3. Leafs can't afford all of Jenner, Anderson, and Nutivaara. We are keeping Kadri anyway unless we are totally screwed by the cap.

I doubt Ottawa trades Brannstrom after they gave up Stone for him.

As for the second trade don't think Vatanen is the guy the leafs should be targeting. There are much better and cheaper options out there. Zacha however could use a fresh start.

Leafs can't afford Karlsson, I'm sorry.

I like the Chicago trade. Strome breaking out proves that some young players need to be traded to find their game. However if your bringing over Strome you need to play him on a line with Marner. I know the leafs promised Tavares he would play with Marner so you could stick him on the LW.

Second two trades I think are overpayments from Toronto's standpoint. I still think they find a way to trade Zaitsev though.

Leafs aren't trading Matthews unless McDavid is coming back.

I think Arizona would want more then what your offering.

Hagelin 3 for 3 is a terrible signing. There are much cheaper options out there for speedy guys who can move the puck. Someone will give him that money, but it's not going to be the leafs.

The Boyle signing is interesting, but again I think the leafs will go for a cheaper option.

Chris Tanev is not a top 4 defenceman anymore, he is even worse then Zaitsev. The only reason the leafs probably make that trade is to get rid of Zaitsev's long term contract. I would target a cheaper option like Dylan Demelo who put up more points last year while playing on the worst team in the league.

Kapanen for Pulock is a better move then Kapanen for Pesce. However this is only because the leafs cannot afford Pesce's 4.25 million dollar contract at the moment.

The leafs likely aren't trading Kadri unless they are totally screwed with the cap situation (they can't trade Zaitsev)
