Kassian is worth more to the oilers than that.

That Anderson trade is brutal.

More than Dermott and a third for sanheim.

So Leaf Life, you are telling me you like all the deals.

What would you receive for Anderson in today's market.

To LA:
Kerfoot, Engvall, Liljgren
To Leafs:
Kempe, Walker OR Roy

I like it, but I doubt LA does it. It would be sweet if they did. Walker and Roy are both better than Liljegren, while Kempe is pretty close to Kerfoot's level and Engvall doesn't close the gap (imo only of course) .

Apparently Kempe is a real speedster, so he would make a good third line with Johnsson and Kapanen.

Ya the leafs may need to add a pick or decent prospect but it’s still something they should consider. It takes care of both of their needs as it gets them a proper 3C and at least a decent upgrade to RHD.

How much do you sign buff for?

Agree0 Disagree1

05 Jun 2020 21:48:59
If you think a 35+ 300 pound player that hasn't played in over a year and won't be playing again until at least October is the perfect guy for us, then signing him makes a lot of sense, depending on what you pay him. I'm not going to tell you otherwise. Lol.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Jun 2020 22:25:02
Sign Byf for one year 2 million.

Byfuglien has never been fast he has played slow and steady, he still has all of his best features (heavy shot, hockey IQ, big hitter) even if he is half of what he was then that’s still a great fit for us. Watch how he makes a comeback.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Jun 2020 23:18:34
If Buff was to come back the 4 teams he would most-likely sign with would be Minny, Chicago, Florida and Wpg. He has history with the cities, head coach and one is home which are reasons to sign there. If he wants to just win he would sign with Boston, St. Louis, Pitt, or TB.

Agree0 Disagree1

05 Jun 2020 23:47:10
IslandJet means NOT wpg.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Jun 2020 02:48:28
There's only four teams that are cup contenders this year? I thought there were 24 teams in the playoffs?

IslandJet, the fact you keep saying Buff would re-sign in Winnipeg, after he literally just screwed the team over and broke his contract, shows just how delusional you really are.

MeMarcusJoe. If you are reading this, what do you think? Is IJ right or has he gone off the deep end? Maybe if you tell him it will help him get past the denial.

Leafs sign Brodie 5x$5.5M

Leafs trade Kapanen
Anaheim trade Lundestrom

I'm making the call right now that Leafs absolutely sign Brodie this offseason. He was the original target of the Kadri trade before Kadri shot it down. And since Dubas' doesn't do rental deals, the intention was to sign him to an extension. This can still be done, but Leafs have to dump cap space. In order to do that, they need to trade someone, and that someone is going to be Kapanen. I choose Anaheim because they are frequent trading partners and Lundestrom is a pretty good prospect at center that they might be willing to let go since they are still pretty strong up the middle and still have superstar in the making Zegras ahead of him too. It might not be Anaheim, but Kapanen goes for picks/ prospects somewhere

You heard it hear first folks. Maybe not from me first. But on this site first. Well maybe not that even. Does t matter. Because I'm staking claim.

These two things I am extremely confident will happen:

1. Brodie signs
2. Kapanen gets traded (for futures)

I would bet if I could. But tell you what instead of a bet, if I am wrong on either of these two things, I will tell RedWing that Parayko really is a better defenseman than Reilly. And I'll even make it sound like I believe it. Lol.

05 Jun 2020 18:25:50
Leafs don’t need another LHD we have way too many as it is. He can play the right side but really isn’t the kind of dman we even need.
I hope we can move out Johnsson and Kapanen this summer to free up cap and roster spots for players that deserve it.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Jun 2020 19:32:25
I wouldn't move Kapanen happily. He really showed some heart before the break and he's good enough to play top 6 if need be. I would move Kerfoot and Johnson before kappy.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Jun 2020 20:10:20
@leafslife

Ur my new favourite person I couldn’t agree more with you.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Jun 2020 22:59:49
I hope Kappy's "heart" is a real thing and does come back in the playoffs and next year. worried that he only stepped up his game due to all the rumors that were going around about all the trades Dubas could do because of all the LTIR space we had. so here's hopin' it was not smoke and mirrors on his part and that his game has actually grown.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Jun 2020 23:47:52
I agree loxley. I just wouldn't want to see him moved yet.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Jun 2020 00:19:12
I agree as well it seems when kappy popped up on the rumour mill as a potential trade bait he had a lot more jump in his game he’s a grinder yet he scores (he hits a lot has a little fire under his ass) I think we need to keep him at all costs although I am aware of how much value he could have to another team I think he has a great role in Toronto I would love to see him play up with Tavares and marner.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Jun 2020 02:38:49
I thought they tried him LW beside Tavares and Marner at the beginning of the season while Hyman was hurt did they not? And he blew it.

Kapanen is a good player, but he is not a great player. He's limited to the right side and seems to work best in a somewhat sheltered role. Of the three JKK, I like Kapanen the best too and hope we keep him. But I assume everyone in the league likes Kapanen best too. We all know Carolina and Edmonton do. It's because he is a good player that the demand will be there is the reason I expect him to get traded. The return will be much better.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Jun 2020 02:52:46
@BigWilly

I know Brodie is LHD, but he plays RHD, same as Hainsey did. I don't think Leafs are too concerned about whether or not he is a natural righty, only if he can play RHD. Look at it this way, we have needed a top line RHD for years. But last year we brought in Muzzin, a lefty. And we signed Lehtonen, a other lefty. I think Leafs are more interested in someone who can just play the right side over actual handedness and it seems to show that in their most recent trades. Even the talk of moving Dermott to the right shows that Leafs value skill more than handedness.

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Jun 2020 23:25:23
Dermott + Korshkov for Sanheim

Kerfoot

Jarnkrok

Anderson + Johnsson

for

Demko + Ferland

$55.5 MM
Reilly Sanheim
Muzzin Holl
Sandin Lehtonen
$17.5 MM
Demko

Kessel 1.2 MM
$77.4 MM

Believable0 Unbelievable0

05 Jun 2020 02:51:06
Ferland is done. We could use him as LTIR. But as a player, if we acquire him, I hope he never plays another game. Last thing Leafs need is another Lupol on the team. As for Demko, I guess it depends on what Markstrom does. We could throw them Andersen in the package too somehow if they wanted to expand it some more

I feel like Jarnkrok is a fairly significant downgrade from Kerfoot. Nashville should be adding a pick of some sort, or even better, retain salary if they can.

Dermott and Sanheim I value roughly equal. Though Philly probably values Sanheim more. They have a lot of quality RHD and may be looking to move one. I don't know if this would get it done, but the idea is pretty straightforward. And if it wasn't for the fact the Philly has a lot of good LHD to go along with all their good RHD, I could see the reasoning and be all for it.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Jun 2020 04:09:07
I don't think that's enough for sanheim even though I like the target.

Rather keep Kerfoot and see how he does next year.

I like demko. But is he a starter?

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Jun 2020 09:16:35
I wouldn’t want to trade Freddie for a developing goalie I like Ferland not enough for this deal.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Jun 2020 13:47:18
Ferland had three concussions last year. THREE. And the year before when he was in Carolina he had two. That's five concussions in two years. FIVE. In TWO years.

If he insists he wants to play again, Leafs should avoid him. Unless we can Robidas Island him, it is not a good idea taking him on.

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Jun 2020 22:47:45
Tor: Johnson/ kappy, Liljegren

Nyi: pulock

Just a thought pulock is a solid rhd and young at age 25 islanders get a good rhd prospect to replace old man mquaid and kappy or Johnson helps boost their offense.

Believable1 Unbelievable0

05 Jun 2020 03:01:56
I wouldn't include Liljegren. NYI have Dobson and Wilde already anyway. He would actually have a better chance with us. I think Islanders are weak LHD though. They have Toews, but he's really the best they have. Leddy hasn't been all that impressive lately. Maybe instead of Liljegren they could take Dermott and throw us a pick to balance or something like that.

I like the idea though. It's a straightforward no nonsense makes a helluva lot of sense trade. And I would love to see Dubas do something like this.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Jun 2020 04:11:22
I don't think pulock will be affordable. Dubas has himself a serious mess right now. So much of what saved him this year was LTIR. that's all disappearing now. I don't see any big name signings or trades even ones like this unless a large contract moves out.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Jun 2020 09:17:35
Would take a lot to pry him away from Lou but not bad target.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Jun 2020 17:05:42
I know he needs an extension and I’m aware dubas is a pussy when it comes to negotiations could we sign pulock imo under 5m per year.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Jun 2020 19:34:21
Dubas biggest issue is how much he gave out already. Anyone looking at those deals will be thinking "I'm almost as good as Marner why can't I get 9m? "

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Jun 2020 21:42:39
NHL salaries in average right now tend toward about $1M per 10 points. So using that standard, and using Marners best season at just over 90 points, then Marner is at least $2.5M-$3M overpay. Using a comparison to peers though, it would seem that he could be even more overpaid, as some of his comparable players signed for less than $8M.

How Dubas thinks he can explain to someone that they deserve only $5M for scoring 25-30 goals and 60-70 points (I'm thinking Hyman here) while Marner earns over twice that is beyond me. And how does he expect to sign any free agents knowing, and he absolutely has to know, that anyone sitting down across the table from him is going to throw those MMT deals in his face.

Just because a player is elite doesn't mean we should overpay for him. And just because a player is not elite doesn't mean we should earn league minimum. Dubas' doesn't think a middle class exists in hockey. It's either you're a star or you're a bust. How much resentment is on the team right now as everyone else is getting paid cheap while the Fantastic Four are receiving all the rewards? I have a feeling that the skew in salaries is going to create some bad blood in the dressing room.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Jun 2020 00:49:52
The bad blood is already there I'm sure. Reilly is the rightful captain and was passed over now will be asked to take a discount. No way he stays.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Jun 2020 02:55:17
I think you might be right about that. Unfortunately.

Maybe the reason Dubas didn't name Reilly captain is because he didn't think he could re-sign him?

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Jun 2020 14:45:25
Tor: Johnsson Dermott Kerfoot

I'd rather keep what we have.

04 Jun 2020 17:09:43
Swap Dermott w lili should get it done big win for us.

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Jun 2020 17:55:04
Let's see:

Leafs gain cap space: ✓
Leafs trade from strength to address weakness: ✓

Leafs keep the core intact: ✓

Leafs gain a stay at home defenseman that hits a lot (increase grit) : ✓

Leafs bring in a true 1RHD: X

Leafs get younger, faster, and more skilled: X

Leafs gain picks for future use: X

Leafs are a better team after: X

So, some good, some bad. Personally I feel the bad outweighs the good, but that's debateable and depends on how much you like the incoming players I guess.

Manson is not a 1RHD and would be the worst partner for Reilly possibly ever. He only has two years after this season though, so if he doesn't work out, we can expose him for Seattle and maybe slip them a pick for doing us that favor.

Heinen is a pretty big downgrade from Kerfoot, which is the most questionable part of the trade for me. He's a good player I'm sure, but going by what I've read, we might be better off keeping Kerfoot and trading Kapanen. But then again, I guess that depends on whether you like apples or oranges type question. And whether Anaheim would want a winger or a center. I'm thinking a winger more because they have good centres still and the last two years in a row they drafted a highly rated center first round. Zegras is the one they say is the next superstar on the team, but that Lundestrom is a highly rated prospect player as well. Anaheim needs wingers. Rackell and Silfverberg are their best wingers and they are middle six players on a contending team.

Agree0 Disagree1

04 Jun 2020 19:23:52
Heinen is a Hyman type player out works his opponents doesn’t put up big numbers be is a great shutdown guy And I think would be a great pk guy alongside Hyman I would say his only knock would be he’s not a true center but neither is Engvall and he got a shot at it as for manson he’s big throws the body and is a stay at home guy might not be a true 1rhd but looking at the market that guy does not exist for the leafs so he’s probably one of the better options by putting manson with Reilly the hope is that Reilly can go back to being a more offensive player which had him net 70 pts and was in the Norris conversation as for the players going back Dermott is a decent player he isn’t flashy and still has time to grow as a player but leafs have the depth on the left side with guys like Sandin who is projecting to be better anyways Kerfoot is a younger guy can play wing or center as he did this year and Johnsson is a solid player too just was signed for too much and the leafs have cheaper options The bonus to this trade is we save cap and neither player has a lot of term so if it doesn’t work they become easy pieces to move.

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Jun 2020 22:39:05
I understand everyone wants more "Hyman" type players but he's one of a kind in a lot of ways. A lot of grinders can't net 30 goals and play top line minutes with superstars. Hyman needs to be resigned because bringing in Heinan isn't a solution to losing him.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Jun 2020 03:06:15
Hyman should be considered one of the core. He's like the Patrick Sharp of the team. Hard working grinder with a nose for the net.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Jun 2020 09:12:05
Who said heinen was his replacement for a year now we have all been posting on here how the leafs need to be a more gritty team that’s what he brings same with manson The leafs have all the offence they need but we need a few good defensive players now.

Agree0 Disagree0

Frost is highly rated in the Flyers system and has progressed a lot since his draft year. There is no way he and a competent top 4 defenseman go for a 3rd liner and a 3rd pairing dman. I like dermott and johnsson a lot, but i think the value isn't quite equal. we might have to add a little here. good target in sandheim!

Agree0 Disagree1

04 Jun 2020 18:55:34
Let say you add a Korshkov or a Brooks with the Dermott, Johnsson and Brooks

for
Sanheim and Frost.

Interesting nobody complained about Kerfoot for Jarnkrok.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Jun 2020 03:15:32
Adam Brooks had 120 and 130 points in his last two years of Junior. And Brooks numbers at the AHL level are just as good.

Frost has a lot of talent, but I'm not holding my breath in him to be a star just yet. He will likely be a good middle six player in the 40-50 point range, but I don't think he will be much better than Kapanen, who was also a 1st round draft pick. Of course this trade was for Johnsson, but he was hurt last year, so I substituted the closest thing we had on the team that made sense. Personally, I'd rather keep Kapanen (Johnsson) right now then trade him for Frost. You draft a player in Frost's spot and would be ecstatic he turns into a player like Kapanen. Because the average player drafted late first round, like Frost was, is a lot worse than Kapanen.
