Horvate signs 8 yr at 8,5 per with Isles Would have been way to rich for leafs.




29 Jan 2023 04:40:17
Reporting a deal is done already between Canucks and Leafs. Dubas has been in Vancouver watching the past two games seated with Ray Shero of the Canucks. NOW if you believe these reports the bigger question is who are the players on the move

Big trade or small trade.

Small trade. Schenn coming to T. O. pick going back. 2nd or 3rd maybe. Or maybe a b prospect or maybe 1 of each

BIG TRADE: Schenn and Horvat to T. O
Rielly, Kerfoot, 1st (2024) to VCR.
Both Rielly and Kerfoot VCR boys they need some local boys win back some fan base.


1.) 29 Jan 2023 15:49:56
If there’s a deal there I would think it’s a depth move probably schenn hopefully not myers.

2.) 29 Jan 2023 18:51:16
Rielly is not going anywhere, he has a full NMC and took a pay cut to stay in Toronto.

3.) 30 Jan 2023 00:02:01
I don't thin Rielly has his NMC kick until much further in to his Contract check Capfriendly. I think I say I think I read it kicked in 2028. As far as the pay cut not the leafs problem. If doesnt have a NMC to bad on him signer beware.

4.) 30 Jan 2023 12:44:36
1strndexit. Rielly has a full NMC until the 28-29 season which it then turns to a 10 team no trade list. He is not likely going anywhere unless he wants to.



25 Jan 2023 04:25:08
This formula simply doesnt work all these 10+ M players. Nylander will be next. that's 4 Matthews will want Max $$$ so 15M ( and they say they wanna win a championship) yeah right
Trade Matthews. He has a NTC . Hes only one piece of the puzzle A HUGE piece of the puzzle but a piece all the same. Arizona would be stupid to not step up and take him for whatever the leafs would ask for. This is not only a hockey trade but a organization being saved by a single player a hometown boy.

The leafs could take advantage of this scenario quite nicely I think

All this of course assuming they falter once again the play offs.

TO BUDS ::: 2023 2ND, 2024 1ST, 2024 2ND (FROM HABS)

9,800,000 HEADED BACK TO TORONTO ( McBain is an RFA and will get a raise for sure) but as it stands T. O is saving gaining just over 3,240,000 in cap space and getting some good return and good high picks.


1.) 25 Jan 2023 10:41:45

2.) 25 Jan 2023 11:27:00
Stop believing kyprios there is no proof that matthews is asking 15 mil further more if they did make this deal the leafs are taking their first this year and probably next plus one or two of their top prospects.

3.) 25 Jan 2023 14:08:12
I'd love to get Meier and worry about signing or trading his rights in the summer we need an impact player on the Tavares line. Not sure if they consider Woll, holmberg, Topi, Voit and our 1st with some retention from them to make the money work.

4.) 25 Jan 2023 18:11:08
Unless the 12st pick was protected theyd never give up the Bedard sweepstakes.

5.) 25 Jan 2023 18:12:18
MPH as Ludicrous as you say it is and yes its never gonna happen It would make the leafs a far better team. One player a team does not make.

6.) 25 Jan 2023 20:05:56
you dont need Kipper for proof of what Matthews is asking for just look at the history he went for it all in his last contract he will do it again. He wants all the $$$ he can get that's all that matters to him. Not bashing him Hes earned the right to choose what he wants to with his life. he has chosen to make as much $$ as he can and forfeit the opprtunity the chance to win the cup by leaving some of that extra money on the table for the team to sign other players.

Mackinnon did this got a cup and is NOW getting paid. It can be done has been done. there is your example. Leafs need to decide do they want a player like Matthews who wants will get you lots of points and sell you lots of merch or someone else without the flash but wont take all your money and be a better fit to help u win a cup. just my opinion but an opinion shared by moret han afew.

7.) 26 Jan 2023 01:48:58
I don’t necessarily object to trading Matthews but not in that deal.
Particularly if Leafs do not make it to the Conference Finals this year.
Trading Matthews would be a 2023 summer deal not a trade deadline deal.

To Leafs : Crouse, Chychrun, Logan Cooley, McBain (since you like him), 2024 1st round pick, 2025 2nd round pick, return of Leafs 2023 3rd round pick (or 2025 2nd round pick, Coyotes choice) from the Lyubushkin rental.

To Coyotes: Matthews, Sandin, Robertson.

8.) 26 Jan 2023 11:16:27
So trade a sure fire HOF player. for what again?

9.) 26 Jan 2023 17:55:30
It wasn't Kipper I was taking the rumour from. he hasn't been accurate since he ko'd all those years ago. below is the article I took the middle number of around 15M as the number as you will read it can go up by 3-4 million or down by 2-3 million based on a lot of factors. Any way you slice it no one player is worth that money when you're trying to win a cup sorry just not.

Auston Matthews article

10.) 26 Jan 2023 18:56:12
waterbuffalo--- Sorry Id rather have a cup banner in the rafters over the scotiabank arena in Toronto then HOF banner of mathhews over the Scotiabannk arena. Just saying.

Is there a nre rule future HOF players can't get traded? missed that one.

11.) 26 Jan 2023 18:59:30

MY apologies. I responded to a comment you didnt send .

but I wanted to respond to the comment you did send. The return for MAtthews would simply kill the future of th Yotes. Its bad enough they have to play in a University arena but with that trade ypu'd also leave them pretty much a uuniversity type roster.



23 Jan 2023 18:31:05
Isles are an intersting team to watch as buyers or sellers. tied for 3rd in the WC race with 51 points but having played two more games than the 2nd place WC team
2-5-3 in ast 10 seem to be headed in the wrong direction. Hot goalie cooling off

I don't think they will be buyers 1.2 in cap space. not much.

to the Leafs. Mayfield (RD) M. Martin (LW) (4th liner basher) bye bye Simmonds

2.9 M in salary to the leafs (Mayfield UFA at end of season ) Martin 1 year left at 1,5M

To Isles. ITS a tough one they have 9 ufa's isles wont want to deal with any of that It would have to be a decent pick and a young talent from the Marlies Maybe a Robertson and a 3rd in 2025 or a Der-Arguchintsev, Semyon and a 2025 and a 3rd . Then they would still have to ensure they cleared enough cap space for other trades because this trade would only address a couple of the more than a couple holes.

To the Isles.




22 Jan 2023 02:02:04
Okay Here we go

Leafs not going anywhere with the core 4... No one is going anywhere
perhaps Matthews back to the desert

Arz gets Matthews and 2025 1st
Tor gets Chychrun Crouse 2025 1st 2024 2nd.

then Fire Dubas


1.) 22 Jan 2023 07:02:26
Of the core 4, Mathews and Nylander have been the best. JT looks washed at times and Marner although playing decently, seems too one dimensional to me. He still has issues in tight checking games where as Wee Willy, is waiting for his payday in 2 years and making it known he wants 10+.

2.) 22 Jan 2023 14:16:12
Agree with leafs life
Of the 4 I would only keep Matthews
Franchise player generational talent plays Center
A keeper

Tavares is half baked can’t skate worth a damn anymore
Nylander is easily top 10 in the league if he would only give an effort every shift
Marner is a hell of a player but the dipsy doodle and drop passes kill the Leafs in tight games.

Imagine the haul we could get moving either nylander or marner!?

3.) 22 Jan 2023 18:17:16
Which again (hate to sound like a broken record) brings me back to trying to acquire Meier who is a more complete player and flipping one of Nylander or Marner to Isles for a package of Dobson. Isles could yes either of those 2 on a line with Barzel and we get a top D man that has offensive skill.

4.) 22 Jan 2023 19:08:44
What you all forgetting is Marner starting next year has a NTC and Tavares already has one and Matthews has on also that kicks in next season. I belive the only one willing to move on that is Matthews to move to Arizona. He'd been seen as the saviour and he'd be going home. IF Arizona were able to get Bedard also Not a bad 1-2 punch. Just saying. Hes an absolute amazing player but if Gretzky can get traded nayone can and with the leafs paying over 50% of the cap to 5 players and losing in the first round year after year this formula is not working.

5.) 23 Jan 2023 16:20:24
@Loxley I think you have me beat with the Meier. lol.

Anyone else watching the leafs geting schooled against Boston tonight? Leafs exposed in all 3 areas of the ice tonight. Forwards are not deep. Hot goalie they can not beat. not even with 30 Million on the forward line in 3 players that were in the line up. Defence were pylons oonce again . Goalie played well in the first but when hes not carrying this team they are done. Not a good sogn headed to the playoffs.


1.) 02 Feb 2023 02:19:20
Just a lack of will to compete physically. Leafs don't like heavy, tough games. Not like the Bruins dominated other than physically.

2.) 02 Feb 2023 02:31:42
As RLF said, it always looks like this against any physical team. Ottawa, Boston, Nashville, etc.

Guys like Marner need open ice to make plays. Physical teams take that away and half the team becomes lost.

3.) 02 Feb 2023 02:47:55
RLF --- Really
GF Boston Tor. 2 Domination
Goaltending Boston.

All night Boston had the edge over the leafs, When the leafs broke in the zone you just had the feeling they werent gonna score.

When Boston got into the leafs zone you gasped. How is that not domination.

Boston is for real Leafs are still pretenders. that's the hard reality.

4.) 02 Feb 2023 07:20:39
Yes, I am serious. We're the Bruins faster? No. Did the Bruins outskill or even badly outshoot the Leafs? No.
What I saw was one team physically dominate the other in all facets of the game.
They won the puck battles. They stopped cycles in their tracks. They boxed out. They pressured with hits. That is all physical play and the desire to do it. They made the Leafs want to get rid of the puck.

The Leafs got out-goaltenfed. That doesn't mean the Bruins dominated them.



29 Jan 2023 04:32:45
Murray has an ankle injury Testing done today could be more serious than first thought. " Might be out long term shocker I know YES more LTIR $$$$ to free up as Woll coming up no doubt will only have a small amount of cap space to take on, great day.




26 Jan 2023 05:47:42
With Murray proving himself once again to be unreliable and unless Dubas can work some magic like he did with Mrazek. AND lets face it for all of us the dislike Dubas that was a hell of a move to unload Mrazek but then again he was the one who went out got him the first place right. Anyhow. No takers on Murray why not buy him out . The buy out is still split with Ottawa the leafs buy out is upcoming season 1,312,500, 2023-24 $562K, 2024-25 and 2025-26 season the last season both a bit steep at 1,875,000 per. The last two the cap is supposed to go up quite a bit . Just a thiught. He can not be in A leafs uniform Can thy send him to the minors and bury his contracr?


1.) 26 Jan 2023 14:32:38
It is an interesting idea. According to capfriendly, if they buy him out June 15th this year it is cap hits of $687,500 for 23-24 and $2M for 24-25. It should be manageable, but only if Woll or Kallgren can be solid, cheap backup and they have a #1 under a decent contract.

2.) 28 Jan 2023 03:38:36
I think after his ego getting hurt in warm ups tonight you have no choice but to buy this cloown out if the new GM can not move himat seasons end.



26 Jan 2023 01:42:45
Anyone else hate the point structure and the shoot out for anything other than entertainment value?

I feel like if you los you lose 0 points. whether you lose in regulation or overtime NO SHOOTOUT.

3 points to winner. win in regulation or OT 3 Points. No winner at the end of a ten minute 3 on 3 overtime tie 1 point

Hate this point for getting your team to the overtime and keeping that point even if you lose in overtime to many teams try to secure that point and get to the shootout.

different tune if they know that no shootout to fall back on and hang on for dear life for 10 minutes not 10 and face the idea of 0 points .


1.) 26 Jan 2023 17:49:23
I can't stand three point games. Personally, I never even had an issue with ties.

2.) 26 Jan 2023 21:44:35
leafslife--- issue with ties is that a much weaker opponent play for the tie. If they know there is little to no chance of a single point they will have to change their mindset.



25 Jan 2023 20:44:38
OFF most topics here but the discussions here revovle around trades to make the leafs stronger. Stronger for the playoffs. Playoffs that have a messed up fprmat that have some very good teams play eachother very early on in the playoffs. The whole format is Pathetic. It needs to be changed. AND not just because the leafs cant win a round. lol Any ideas on hpw to better the format for the playoffs and rubbish better the regular season divsions and format to decide who plays in these new formatted playoffs ? any thoughts.


1.) 26 Jan 2023 14:38:26
Back to per conference of 1 vs 8, 2 vs 7 etc like it used to be. The whole division stuff just complicated things. I would actually like to see a 2 out of 3 play in for teams 8 and 9 of each conference. At the same time 2 plays 7, 3 play 6 and 4 plays 5. Once the winner of the play in finishes, the series starts with them against the number 1 team. Makes it a bit tougher if you squeak in and the number one team gets about a week rest before they have to start the playoffs.

2.) 26 Jan 2023 14:57:23
kind of what I came up with. actually rewardin top seeds

2x8=16 teams per conference 2 conference =32 teams 81 games max

7x4=28 division
8x3=24 same conference other division
16x2 = 32 other conference (-2 games to get back down to 82 OR increase season to 84 games to be completely equal

82 game season

Top 4 each division make playoffs
BEST OF 5 2nd round Best o7
1— 1st round bye 1 vs lowest rank team left
2— 1st round bye 1 vs 2nd lowest rank team left
3— round 1 vs 6
4—- round 1 vs 5
5—- round 1 vs 4
6—-- round 1 vs 3
7 — out
8 — out

3rd round best of 7
Two remaining teams from 2nd round

Semi Finals best of 7

FINALS best of 7.

3.) 26 Jan 2023 14:59:45
youe idea gives value to the confrence more so and less so to division

mine is the opposite simply because in my formula you play more games in your division.

Big B--- I'd take Chychurn over any d man in the leauge right now that contract the point production the defensive ability. Could be a little more physical sure but OMG compared to the two you mention No comparison. Of the two you mention I like Schenn over Gudas as a deeper d core as 6-7 man to add that pysical presence but not over Chychurn.

They are gonna trade Nylander. He has priced himself out of the toronto market. that's what happens when you invest over 50 % of your cap in 5 players. Well 4 as Nylanderis currently one of those 5 I speak of. Lets see who they've lost . Kadri, Hyman come to mind.

MURRAY is and has been a disaster. Its not like its a secret among the league. Ottawa were so desperatly trying to get rid of him they swallowed a rubbish ton of his contract just so he wouldnt play for them. EVERYONE in the league saw it but Dumbass Dubas. He has this arrogance about him that OH I will show the league and pull a fast one over on all of them. Only problem is he never does.

He never addresses the glaring problems which is the same problem areas that wins you cups goaltending and defence, NOPE he thinks like hes still in the OHL and can win with 4-5 great offensive minded players and outscore the opposition. How is that working out so far for ya. Time to cut the wonder boy loose let him go screw up another franchise.
