I would rather keep the 3 quality young players and the 1st round pick.

22 Jul 2018 15:08:06
Yeah. Very bad for leafs.

22 Jul 2018 15:28:25
Canucks are the big winners here.

What happened to Hainsey and Ozhiganov anyway?

22 Jul 2018 18:40:22
Carrick, Nielson, Gauthier

That's all I'd offer and Canucks hang up phone on me

In closing, both sides view Tanev differently

Canucks thinks he is worth our young skilled forwards and picks
Leafs think he is worth a package of young b level prospects.

The only trade I would do for panarin.

Toronto: Panarin

Montreal: Gardiner

Columbus: Pacioretty, 2019 2nd (TOR), Marchment

Then trade Marleau to San Jose in the 2019 draft retain if needed.

Agree1 Disagree1

22 Jul 2018 15:34:43
A three way trade of pending UFA’s is an interesting thought.

Pacioretty sorta kinda replaces Panarin. Lol.

Gardiner for Panarin is about all I would want to offer Columbus. Maybe a throw in if they cried for more. They were the ones that put themselves in this situation. We shouldn’t be willing to bail them out.

21 Jul 2018 22:08:12
Hearing Leafs have interest in bringing in Panarin for one year.

To Toronto: Panarin
To Colombus: Johnsson, Bracco and a 1st

For one year of Panarin leafs won't give up Kapanen, marner or nylander. Johnsson would have to be the starting point.

Agree1 Disagree2

22 Jul 2018 04:07:02
I don’t even think Leafs should be coughing up Johnsson for a one year rental on Panarin.

I hate the thought of trading a long term asset for a short term rental. Would rather give them Gardiner instead.

Leafs might make this trade though. It would make us heavy favorites to win the cup.

22 Jul 2018 05:16:07
Panarin will be very expensive and I for one would not want to see the Leafs give up too much of their youth and draft picks for a 1 year rental.
Skinner would be almost as good a fit and much cheaper to acquire.

22 Jul 2018 12:29:03
Would Panarin be cheaper to get than someone like Parayko? If that was the case maybe the Leafs would flip him for a top pairing Rhd.

22 Jul 2018 18:43:37
I think if Panarin fetches you Parayko than Columbus would go get Parayko with Panarin

It's a great idea though.

21 Jul 2018 21:56:41
To Toronto: Panarin

To Columbus: Kapanen, Korshkov and 2019 1st round pick





Agree2 Disagree2

22 Jul 2018 04:04:18
Absolutely not.

Way too much for a one year rental in Panarin.

Leafs pass.

21 Jul 2018 20:07:15
Leafs: Tyler Myers

Jets: Zibanejad 25% retained

Rangers: 1st tor 2019 Jeremy Bracco 3rd tor 2019

Rangers get a B+ prospect and a pick jets trade from an area of strength and a player who will probably walk at the end of the year due to impending cap crunch with Laine wheeler and conners coming up and acquire Zibanejad at a cheaper tag to strength their weaker center core after Stastny and leafs acquire the top pairing RHD they need giving up a fair bit but what's to be expected. A trade I could see realistically happening that benefits all teams.

Agree1 Disagree1

22 Jul 2018 01:22:29
With Winnipeg's cap crunch there could be a chance they want to get marc stall who's still signed for a couple years to replace Myers. But overall it looks like a sound trade.

22 Jul 2018 01:26:55
I think you'll need to wait until the Trouba situation is solved. If it ends up only being a one year deal for Trouba, then they likely hold onto Myers and extend him at the end of the year.

22 Jul 2018 04:03:07
absolutely not.

Jets make out like bandits. Rangers and Leafs get screwed.

If you’re going to put up a lopsided proposal, at least make it one in favor of Leafs.

22 Jul 2018 14:21:02
Leafs GM how so? Leafs only give up a 1st 3rd and a prospect who is years away for the solid big top pairing d man they need. The pick is likely a high 20s pick and the 3rd in the 80s as well as bracco who could be good or not. Rangers get more futures for a guy who has struggles staying healthy and has put up a best 51 points. Winnipeg gets a solid 3rd/ 2nd linecenter in Zibanejad at a good price I like the deal from everyone’s perspective. Seems like you don’t like any deal if they A aren't yours or B aren't biased towards the leafs.

22 Jul 2018 14:53:45
You could potentially even throw the 3rd then leave give to new York, and instead give it to Winnipeg,

22 Jul 2018 15:17:39
Jets get a guy that scored 27 goals last year and is signed for five more years at a reasonable cap hit in exchange for UFA Myers. That is a huge tilted towards Jets. All Rangers get in return is, in your own words “1st, 3rd, and a prospect who is years away. the pick is likely high 20s and the 3rd is in the 80s as well as Bracco who could be good or not”. So tell me, why would Rangers make this trade? How is this not unfair to Rangers?

And again, why would Leafs make this trade for one year rental in Myers?

This trade heavily favours the jets and fleeces Rangers especially, and isn’t favourable to Leafs either.

Sorry Poopy. No need to be defensive. I don’t always disagree with everyone’s proposals. Just the ones like this that are they bviously unacceptable to everyone but a Jets fan.

21 Jul 2018 17:18:46
Toronto trades Kapanen, 3rd
Detroit trades Rasmussen

Toronto trades Gardiner
Dallas trades Tufte, 1st
*Gardiner signs to extension first

Just trying to get a feel for what these guys are worth. Both are solid but unproven prospects with a lot of size and skill. Won’t be making NHL for at least another year, but are expected to be making contribution soon.


If you don’t think these trades are acceptable, give me your opinion what you think would be fair.

Agree1 Disagree2

21 Jul 2018 18:27:08
I say we trade for a right d first then go from there.

21 Jul 2018 18:41:46

There’s nothing wrong with trading for a 1RHD, and I’ve suggested a lot of proposals for someone to fill that position. that's not what this proposal is about though. Recycling the same proposals or variations thereof is narrow minded and loses appeal quickly. Leafs need to keep their options open and explore all possibilities. I realize I’ve suggested trades for nothing these players before, but I’m still looking for consensus on what would be generally acceptable for prospects like these guys, so I can work them, or similar players, into a larger movement later, with the whole and bigger picture in mind.

21 Jul 2018 22:01:31
I don’t like the idea of trading gardiner while pursuing the cup, unless you can get a better defensemen. I would take the first trade because bracco could take his spot eventually.

21 Jul 2018 22:38:45
The Detroit deal is bias of what you want. speed for size with both having lots of potential. Maybe change 3rd for an actual lower level prospect . say Andrew Nielson and this deal could happen and work for both teams.

Dallas deal I like the prospect but tradin Gardiner for no D coming back might hurt
I suggest
Spezza, Johns and Tufte for Gardiner and Gauthier

Dallas gets rid of Spezza deal and Leafs only have it for 1 year. Johns is RHD the leafs are looking for and Gardiner is LHD Dallas wants. Tufte for Gauthier is the reward Leafs gets for taking Spezza contract

Love the PP
Nylander Tavares Matthews
Dermott Marner

Marleau Kadri Brown
Reilly Spezza.

22 Jul 2018 04:13:26
Trading Gardiner without having someone come in would definitely weaken our defence next season, and Leafs have already proven they will hold onto UFA’s for playoffs rather than weakening the team. I expect Gardiner will finish his term as a Leaf.


I was aiming for size here, yes. I’m biased toward size over speed, even though I think it’s pretty obvious Leafs brass are the opposite, preferring speedy skilled players. I like your suggested improvement to the Dallas trade. Spezza would be a good 4C for one year, and we can still afford him.

Thanks for the comments and definitely gives me something to thinking about.

Go Leafs.

21 Jul 2018 02:46:53
Leafs: Rielly
Oilers : Draisaitl.

Agree0 Disagree6

21 Jul 2018 06:28:39
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.

21 Jul 2018 09:22:23
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.

21 Jul 2018 15:44:18
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?

21 Jul 2018 16:43:08
This makes zero sense for Toronto, pass.

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.

20 Jul 2018 20:39:28
Winnipeg: Trouba
Toronto: Matthews

Agree0 Disagree7

20 Jul 2018 21:10:22
A crappy defenseman for the generational player of all generational players? Are you mad?

21 Jul 2018 00:41:12
Clearly a Winnipeg fan trolling.

21 Jul 2018 01:14:02
This is a joke. You can’t be serious.

21 Jul 2018 03:08:40
Trouba is getting more expensive with every proposal.

21 Jul 2018 03:14:48
I can't imagine this is serious!
Just trying to stir the pot?

21 Jul 2018 04:26:02
Pretty sure that's a joke post.

21 Jul 2018 07:04:36
Don't feed the trolls.

That's how you get ants.

21 Jul 2018 16:15:09
Gauthier for Trouba

Because the original proposal has to have the appropriate counter proposal.

21 Jul 2018 19:49:06
- just to clear everything up, this was a post on the main page as a satirical post against a winnipeg fan who thought Trouba was worth everything and anything.

20 Jul 2018 19:57:34
Canucks trade: tanev, grandlund, 3rd round pick 2019

Maple leafs trade: Liljegren, Horton, 1st round pick 2019

What do you guys think?

Agree1 Disagree5

20 Jul 2018 20:44:22
Hard no. You're going to trade a future top pairing RHD for a broken horse?

21 Jul 2018 03:16:20
I'm not a fan of players that are nearing their 30's and have a tendency to suffer serious injuries and miss a lot of games every season.

21 Jul 2018 19:55:41
I don’t hate this trade gets Horton off the books and we get the defenseman we need but I think taking out the picks makes it more fair as even though liljegren is still young tanev hasn’t shown he can stay healthy.

22 Jul 2018 05:24:22
That is a terrible trade for the Leafs.
Leafs don't need Gandlund and Tanev is always hurt.
Leafs would be giving up two 1st round picks.
Liljegren (a 1st round) and 2019, 1st round.
That's back to the future, to the days of Nonis, Burke and John Fergusen Jr.
You must have relatives who work for the Canucks.

20 Jul 2018 17:52:37
WPG: Trouba
TOR: Nylander

Agree1 Disagree9

20 Jul 2018 19:09:26

20 Jul 2018 19:10:37
Lol, what a joke.

20 Jul 2018 19:31:32
y'all need to understand. Nylander will not be traded unless it's too good to pass up and JT ok's it.

20 Jul 2018 19:32:21
I don’t know how many times I have to tell people on this sight
Nylander Is Not Getting Traded
-Kyle Dubas.

20 Jul 2018 20:36:41
As I said on the main page. Only if the Jets scouts are convinced Nylander can play C. As a winger, no interest.

21 Jul 2018 03:19:48
'As much as I like Trouba (I was hoping Leafs would pick him over Reilly in their draft year) I don't think I would want the Leafs to make this trade.
Leafs have 2 elite center's and each of those elite center's needs an elite winger to play with.
Leafs are blessed with 2 in Nylander and Marner.
I think it would be a mistake to break up those tandems.

21 Jul 2018 06:16:20
Plus. Jets are tight against the cap and Ny will want or get all of troubas' asking price which will probably be even cheaper.
Since Peg is in tight, I would say for Trouba .1st 2018, Kapanen, Liljegren.
So those two contracts are low prices with high potential allowing the Jets to keep the rest of their main core to workhorse through while Lil maybe steps in a 6th spot to ease in. (after he learns their system)
