To Leafs:
Skinner, Faulk
To Carolina
Rights to Bozak and JVR, 1st rounder this year and next year, Pickard, Grundstrom, Carrick or Holl

To Calgary:
Gardiner, Brown
To leafs:
Backlund, assets

Sign Derek Ryan or Riley Nash and Maroon
Johnsson/ Matthews/ Marner
Skinner/ Kadri/ Nylander
Marleau/ Backlund/ Kapanen
Maroon/ Ryan or Nash/ Hyman

Rielly/ Faulk
Dermott/ Zaitsev
Hainsey/ Holl or Carrick (whoever wasn't traded)

Anderson
Sparks

Move Mclheiny to minors for some goalie depth.

Calgary desperately needs another LD and Gardiner can be that LD
They also have lots of centers who are young and goong to improve so they can afford to trade Backlund ( especially when they hopefully know they aren't going to win a cup in the next few years).

Giordano is getting old is my point so Calgary will need a younger defence and they can find that in Gardiner, and then they can trade Giordano for something good that they need (such as a goalie for instance) because TJ Brodie can take his spot and Gardiner can play top 4D.

Sergachev and JT Miller for Kapanen, a 1st (25th) and Leafs expiring contracts is not something a GM as smart as Yserman is ever going to consider.
Sergachev is a gem and would be a top pairing defenseman in a couple of years on the Lightning if they didn't already have Norris nominee Hedman as top pairing LHD.
I'm a Leaf fan but let's get serious.


2.) 18 Jun 2018 01:15:00
Good luck trying to pry Sergachev out of Tampa’s hands.

Carolina laughs at that offer. It’s well known they are trying to trade their own defensemen for forwards.

I’m not sure why you don’t think we need our first round picks. All teams need to be holding those picks in the salary cap era so they can replenish depth. All those teams like LA and Chicago, for example, who traded their picks for a chance to “win now” have sacrificed their futures and are paying for it now. Those teams are no longer competitive and might not be again for many years.


3.) 18 Jun 2018 01:47:27
JT Miller is a Centre who was playing right wing so Kapanen is a good replacement for him, plus Holl or Carrick
Then both of the first round picks, Pickard, and rights to Bozak go to getting Sergachev because he was drafted 9th overall in 2016 and has already made the NHL and is likely going to be a top 2D next year.


4.) 18 Jun 2018 01:48:15
sorry throw in Grundstrom in the Tampa trade not Carrick or Holl my bad.


5.) 18 Jun 2018 01:55:27
Then you need to replace JVR so trading for Skinner is a good option since Carolina already has Aho and are going to draft the best forward in the draft, who happens to be a left winger.

To Leafs:
Simmonds
To Philly:
1st 2018, rights to Bozak, Brooks, 7th 2020

To Leafs:
Hamilton, Tkachuk
To Calgary:
Simmonds, 1st 2019, 7th 2020 (via Edmonton), Pickard, rights to Bozak and JVR, more from the farm (assets)-any suggestions for this?

This is what I did last time but this time we don't trade Mclheiny and we get more from Calgary, while not giving up Nylander or Kapanen

Lines:
Hyman/Matthews/Marner
Tkachuk/Kadri/Nylander
Marleau/?-again suggestions?/Kapanen
Johnson/Lindholm/Brown

Rielly/Hamilton
Gardiner/Zaitsev
Dermott/Hainsey

Anderson
Sparks
(move Mclheiny to minors for depth)

Who do you think the third line center should be?-Leave in comments
(I say we sign Thornton or trade Gardiner for a third line center and a 2nd rounder, bump Dermott up to top 4 LD, move Hainsey over to top 6 LD, and bring up Liljgren, Holl or put in Carrick on top 6 RD)

1.) 15 Jun 2018 20:55:38
Did we duplicate bozak cause we traded his rights twice.


2.) 15 Jun 2018 21:25:15
oh whoops my bad I just meant rights to JVR
Thats why I added any suggestions for more assets, sorry.


3.) 16 Jun 2018 01:28:56
You can get a lot more for Gardiner than a third line center and a 2nd.


4.) 16 Jun 2018 05:54:52
You already have two third line centres playing the wing. Either Marleau or Nylander can play center. I usually slot Marleau in for 3C because he hasn’t more experience than Nylander. Either works in between Johnsson and Kapanen. That’s a fast line with a lot of skill. Much better idea than trying to bring in Thornton or Filppula. And cheaper too.


5.) 16 Jun 2018 06:01:10
So, your lineups would like like this

Hyman/ Matthews/ Nylander
Tkachuk/ Kadri/ Marner
Johnsson/ Marleau/ Kapanen
(Lievo) / Lindholm/ Brown
* (Martin)

Reilly/ Hamilton
(Gardiner) / Zaitsev
Dermott/ Hainsey
* (Carrick) ), Holl, Liljegren

*Lievo, Carrick, Martin and Gardiner all on the most likely to be traded list
*Liljegren, and probably Holl, will be seeing ice time 3RHD next year
*Marleau and Nylander can switch positions once. Ylamder is ready.


6.) 16 Jun 2018 06:07:58
I guess that is true but remember the leafs have a lot of cap space so I say we sign Thornton to 1 year (2 at a soulute max) and keep Marleau on the wing for more chemistry in that line
Then we can also keep Grundström in the Minors for another year until he fully develops.


7.) 16 Jun 2018 21:08:11
Nash from the Bruins between Marleau -Kapanen.


8.) 17 Jun 2018 02:47:03
Ahahahaha. what a bollocks trade. never give up any first rnder's
You definitely sound like a Flames fan. absolutely f-up and silly.


9.) 17 Jun 2018 02:50:53
I would trade for Simmonds. but you are offering waaaayy to much. trade Nylander for Simmonds straight up. better 200 ft. physical player with equal stats.

To leafs:
Wayne Simmons
To Flyers:
Rights to Bozak, Jeremy Bracco, 2018 1st round pick, Mclheiny

To Leafs:
Dougie Hamilton
To Calgary:
Pikard, Simmons, 2019 3rd round pick

Flyers will need a center to replace Filppula
Simmons is getting old and will start to decline soon and has 1 year left on his contract so Flyers may want to get rid of him
Leafs could trade Simmons for a better RHD such as Dougie Hamilton with Pikard
If you think of a team that may want Simmons and Pikard for a top RHD put it in the comments Below, this was just and example to get a RHD
Maybe Doughty from LA or Something else? IDK put it in the comments
The lines would look like this
(sign Maroon and a 3rd line center such as Filppula or Thornton)

Hyman/Matthews/Nylander
Johnson/Kadri/Marner
Marleau/Thornton or Filppula/Kapanen
Maroon/Linholm/Brown

Rielly/Hamilton
Gardiner/Zaitsev
Dermott/Hainsey
*Carrick/Holl-possibly trade one of these two for assets or picks

Anderson
Sparks

A Mathews trade won’t be so absurd when the first chance he gets he’s going to Arizona he doesn’t wanna play in Toronto sign Tavares trade Mathews for elkman Larson Strome and a 1st.


2.) 15 Jun 2018 01:44:20
Is anybody going to reply to this or what?


3.) 15 Jun 2018 04:14:19
Again is anybody going to reply to this?


4.) 15 Jun 2018 05:48:00
I just read that exact same Flyers trade online. Lol. You took it a step farther and flipped Simmonds (spelled with a d by the way) for Hamilton.

So basically, we are trading Bracco, McBackup, Picard, 1st, 3rd for Hamilton.

Would Leafs make that trade? Yes. I don’t like the idea of losing two goalies. But chances of us needing to use our third string goalie are slim. We don’t lose anything off the roster, and we manage to pull in a top pair RHD.

Does Philly make the trade? I don’t think so. As a bubble team, they will need Simmonds more than a first. I expect they will be buyers, not sellers, looking to get past first round of playoffs this year if they get in. They can try and sign Bozak outright when he hits the market or find someone else.

Would Calgary make the trade? Possibly. Definitely not unless Simmonds was signed first. But even supposing he was signed first, Calgary is still going to be tight against the cap with Simmonds salary added in, and they don’t get back into the top round of the draft. I would think Calgary would want a younger, cheaper forward and a higher pick instead of Simmonds and a 3rd.

There’s a lot of pieces to this trade, which makes it hard to break it down and analyze. There’s a lot of good things going for it. As a Leafs next, I would actually rather have Simmonds remain on the team, and give up the younger player (Kapanen) and higher pick that Calgary will be asking for.

Good job mostleaf33.


5.) 15 Jun 2018 12:26:24
That’s fair putting Kapanen instead of Simmonds is fair, Simmonds did basically play 3rd line this year anyway.


6.) 15 Jun 2018 12:30:05
We also do have Kasio and Scott on the farm and I honestly think the leafs should draft a goalie this year in the second or 3rd round to give them some more depth.


7.) 15 Jun 2018 12:35:29
But you are right I should’ve kept at least one of our goalies but I honestly think Sparks is ready and maybe is only willing to play in the nhl and not in the AHL again. I guess you could try and trade (or sign) for another AHL goalie but it will cost you some young talent from the farm
The last thing you could do is swap Mclheiny and Sparks (Sparks in NHL, Mclheiny in AHL) while putting Moore or Marchement or Brooks (or someone like that) in the trade instead of Mclheiny, just to have some better goalie depth.

as much as I want this to happen, Carolina doesn't need another defencemen
They could use the pick but why give up the second over all one for 2 late first rounders and Nylander, who will be worse then Svechnikov.

1st of all, leafs do not have that kind of cap space especially when Marner and Matthews will need extentions
2nd of all, Stastny for 6 years? you realize he will be 33 starting next season right?
Carlson may not even be on the FA market
the only thing that makes sence here is resigning JVR for that price, (maybe a bit lower because he really wants to come back to Toronto, and sign him for 3 years instead of 6 if u can)

Sign Statsny or Thorton and a better D then Ozhiganov and maybe I consider it but Lindholm is not a 3rd line center.
