Interesting watching the Leafs recent moves. Expect Freddy to bounce back nicely in Carolina, career #'s would indicate such. Mrazek career #'s suggest more of the same, mid range but not elite level goaltending. After watching tbe Leafs struggle with letting a proven backup go in Curtis McElhinney, they now do the same with their starting position for a savings of 700 K. Lou would have had Nylander @ 6 million & Marner & Matthews @ 8 or 9 million. Pivotal mistakes made by Dubas have handicapped the team, they will miss the playoffs & draft in the top 5 next year & begin the rebuild. Shannahan, Dubas & Keefe will be fired. Leafs spent decades gambling on their goaltending position, big mistake then as it is now.

2022 / 2023 under new Leaf management, Tavares & Nylander wave tbeir no trade clauses.

Matthews to Philadelphia for four 1st rd draft choice in 2022, 2023, 2024 & 2025.

Marner to Columbus for three first rd choices in 2022,2023 & 2024

Tavares to the Rangers for two first rd draft choices in 2022 & 2023

Nylander to Chicago for two 1st rd draft choices in 2022 & 2023

Muzzin & Brodie to Calgary for a 1st & 2nd rd pick in 2022.

Leafs would have 6 picks in the 1st rd of the 2022 NHL draft & 2 picks in the 2nd rd, and able to parlay picks to get 2 of the top 5 draft choices or say 3 of the top 10 picks in the draft.

Leafs would have 5 picks in the 1st rd of the 2023 draft, again able to parlay picks to attempt to get 2 of top 5 selections.

Leafs would have 3 first rd picks in 2024 & 2 more first rd picks in 2025. So a total of 16 first rd picks in 4 drafts.

Fill in the roster in 2022 / 2023 & 2023 / 2024 with UFA's. By 2025 / 2026 team would be a Cup contender.

Dermott 1.5



Kerfoot 3.5

Kunin 2.3

Tbay still needs to shed cap and they would have Foote and Dermott to fight it out for a spot cheaper than Cernak. Of if both make the team, two players for the price of one.

Nash needs speed at centre and Kerfoot gives them that. SDA adds a younger prospect for an older one they have not used yet.

Tor picks up a more physical RD in Cernak. Kunin helps them on the wing and Novak is a centre prospect who could be moved to left wing. Gives Leafs more options while not adding to the cap. This also makes the option of moving Rielly for other help easier to do.

Leafs trade Kerfoot they will have 7 million cap apace. Kerfoot cap space is better for leafs than his space. also Kerfoot ne t team only pays 750k. Leafs will get great value for Kerfoot contract.

Agree0 Disagree0

Tamp probably says no because they are already under the cap and Nashville won’t trade Kunin straight up for that likely they protected him during the expansion draft so the my probably see him as their future 2C.

Agree0 Disagree0

Two final moves to sure up roster.

1. Sign Michael Stone to 1 year 1 mil deal, he's a good defender/penalty killer who's had a couple tough seasons with Calgary the last 2 years which leads me to believe 1. He'll take a cheap contract and 2. He would okay with being a 7th defender, not to mention he already has chemistry with Brodie and would most likely be his d partner on the penalty kill when he's in the roster.

2. Trade Engvall, Liljegren (2.1m combined) and maybe a B level prospect to Columbus for max Domi at 50% retained (2.65m). Considering the facts that Columbus exposed him in the expansion draft and he only has 1 year left on his deal I believe Columbus would make this deal. Not only is he the son of a leafs legend but also an offensively gifted/ gritty player that has chemistry with Marner from their London days that also fits the bill of a player who would like to redeem himself which Dubas clearly values.

Extra- Brooks, Gabriel

(*If Bunting fails to provide top 6 production he switches places with Robertson)


Campbell (1A)
Mrazek (1B)


Sandin- Bunting/Robertson


Brodie-Stone or Dermott-Brodie

Lastly sign Rielly 7-8 years at 7-8m before we lose him for nothing next offseason

I don't feel like doing the math but if this roster isn't cap compliant as is it would be with an addition of LTIR space and or placing Brooks and or Gabriel on waivers

Whenever someone wants Max Domi they immediately lose me.

Domi left MTL because he's a brutal centre but doesn't actually understand that.

He's also a goof. He's really not the guy you want/ need.

Max Domi is certainly not the answer.

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Jul 2021 13:05:17
Yea, no desire for Max.

Would you guys do any of these?
Tor: Matthews, marner
Col: McKinnon, rantanen

Tor: matthews
Buf: eichel 50 % retained dahlin power

Tor: matthews
Edm: Hyman 50% retained, draisaitl, Bouchard, 2022 1st

Tor: matthews, Reilly
Nyr: the russsian goalie, laf, kaako, miller, Schneider,

Tor: matthews, marner
Ott: both browns stutzle. Tkachuk, chabot, 2022 1st

I would do that Ott deal. It's really not hard to see how things go shortly after. You trade Rielly, JT becomes your 1C and your team now has more cap space, a better D core and more balanced roster. I also think Ott declines though.

Agree0 Disagree1

30 Jul 2021 12:04:14
So let me get this straight, Matthews just leads the league in goal scoring and finishes 2nd in Hart voting and you want to trade him? Give your head a shake.

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Jul 2021 13:06:41
Matthews is pretty much untouchable in my mind, so anything that is offered would have to be a ridiculous overpay for me to really consider it.

Agree1 Disagree0

30 Jul 2021 15:26:31
He becomes extra ordinary in the playoffs though, no those words weren’t meant to be together. McKinnon is a playoff beast. To me, matthews walks in 3 years, we only have 2 years until his ntc kicks in. We bitch and moan about Hyman bozak and jvr walking on free agency, matthews is going to do the same thing, ergo get a massive haul for him.

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Jul 2021 15:39:48
@Randy. Matthews gets the chances in the playoffs and ups his compete even more each year. 24 pts in 32 playoff games as at 23 years old is up there for production. Do we need more goals from him? Yes. Move Marner and keeping Matthews shouldn't be a problem. Tavares comes off the books the next season. Get a return for Rielly now that includes a top 4 prospect+ now so that we get something for a guy we aren't keeping as well. The cap doesn't have to be an issue, but it does mean fixing some of Dubas mistakes now.

Agree0 Disagree0

So could the Leafs pull off a big trade with Seattle to to create more cap space and improve their defense and give Seattle more forwards.

Proposed trade,

Toronto trades Kerfoot, Engvall, Dermont and Joey Anderson ($7.25 million cap created)

Seattle for Jared McCann and Vince Dunn or Jeremy Larzon ( cap in $5.25 in)

This trade gives us an extra 2 million of cap space, 3rd line center and a big 3rd line defender

Leafs could then look a signing Nick Richtie and Galchenyuk

Bunting Matthews Marner
Galchenyuk Tavares Nylander
Mikheyev McCann Gabriel
Ritchie Spezza Simmons

Rielly Brodie
Muzzin Holl
Sandin Dunn / Larzon

Francis drafted with the purpose of keeping cap space open. I don't think he's giving us cap space for them.

If he valued Kerfoot over Mcann or Dermott over both he would have picked one of the two.

Attempting to fix our black hole on lw.

Boston needs better bottom 6 players and Leafs need some cost effective le.


Leafs : debrusk
Boston :engval, mikheyev, maybe a 4th in 2023

Then the Leafs sign one of galchenyuk, Tatar, or Marcus Johannson .

Lw depth is then


It's not great but this is the best you can do when your gm mismanages your cap and trades away all your depth.

I wouldn't trade Mikheyev. He's going to be an important PK guy without Hyman.

I like going after Debrusk as well though. He's not my dream addition but at this point it's like I tell my kids; you get what you get and you don't get upset.

Agree1 Disagree0

30 Jul 2021 10:42:44
Good points LL. I was thinking with the addition of kampfe who’s supposed to be a pk specialist perhaps it’s makes mikey movable.

Let’s just hope we do something about the lw depth because it’s embarrassing to look at currently lol.
