So I’ve heard things about Murray being a potential target for the Maple Leafs. As a guy who really wants Gibson, Kuemper or Fleury, if we can’t get one of the three then I would take a look at Matt Murray. I feel like if he came here to Toronto where he’s from and somehow he finds a way to shine a play the way he did in Pittsburgh then I’d say that’s a steel. He hasn’t been great the past two-three season and that’s because of injury and teams that’s he’s one. The year before he joined the Senators, the Penguins were a decently good team with huge upside and had so much potential with two starting goalies with him and Jarry at the time. Then when he signs in Ottawa, not only did injury screw him over again but it was also the team that was in front of him as well. If he can get a fresh start with a team that’s on the verge of winning a cup I think he could be one of the pieces that this team is missing. So this is what a trade would look like in my opinion if Toronto and Ottawa were too do a trade. I’d do something like this.

Toronto acquires;
2023 3rd round pick

Ottawa acquires:
2023 6th round pick.

From what I read it isn’t a trade scenario dubas is interested in they want to see if Ottawa buys out Murray and then they will sign him as a ufa.

2.) 13 Jun 2022 00:01:28
Murray has a $6+ a year cap hit.
For far less we can keep Campbell.
Unless Ottawa buys him out he is not in Leafs plans.

It has been years since Murray was a NHL caliber, starting goalie.
Even in Ottawa he lost the starting job to Forsberg who Leafs could have had on waivers and the backup position to Gufstafson.
Why would he be a fit on a contender?
Unless he signs for $1 million I do not feel
Leafs should use a SPC on him!

3.) 13 Jun 2022 00:20:20
Why would you possibly want Murray? He just isn't worth that contract.

Toronto trades: Nick Robertson, Petr Mrazek, Alex Kerfoot and a first round pick

Anaheim trades: John Gibson, Max Comtois, Kevin Shattenkirk and a second.

Now I know y’all won’t agree with this trade or question why I added some guys in this deal so let me explain. John Gibson is apparently rumoured and linked to the Leafs and could be a guy that they acquire if. Campbell doesn’t sign according to Elliotte Friedman. Gibson in my opinion is still a top goalie in the league when healthy and when he’s on a good team. Obviously Anaheim hasn’t been the greatest for over three seasons but he still has a great GAA and Save %. He’s been on the Leafs radar for years and if Campbell doesn’t come back then Toronto shouldn’t pass up on the opportunity to get a goalie in John Gibson. With Comtois this could be a guy that could possibly replace a guy like Kase or Blackwell If they don’t resign with the Leafs. Comtois is a former 16 goal scorer that could come on a team with skill and make an impact maybe on the third or fourth line and could even bounce up to the first or second line if need. He’s 6’2 210-220 and he can hit. Max hasn’t got the opportunity to show what he’s made of in the league and I feel like Toronto could give him that opportunity. Finally with Shattenkirk, he’s another guy that has probably been rumoured to the Leafs for a while. Right handed shot player that we need on this team because maybe if Lyubushkin doesn’t sign which I hope he does, Shattenkirk can replace him and make our defence hard to play against. For a player that’s in his mid 30s he’s still averaging good numbers. So these are guys that I think Toronto should get. Sound off in the comments if you like this trade or no. But in the comments definitely add different players in the deal but keep Gibson in the deal.


1.) 24 May 2022 18:26:08
At this point Robertson is a B prospect. So you're expecting, a high second, a top 10 goalie, comtois and shatty (because that's how he plays defence) and a high second for: a B prospect, a cap dump, a rental and a late first?

You don't see an issue here?

2.) 24 May 2022 20:07:24
Toronto should trade Muzzin (no trade does not kick in until July 1st 2023)

Toronto trades Muzzin and Abreeze
Anaheim for Maxine Comtois and Max Jones.

3.) 24 May 2022 21:07:51
Actually, Muzzin has a full no trade until July 1st 2023. Then it becomes a partial no trade (10 team list starts July 2023).

4.) 24 May 2022 21:09:16
@Adam. Sorry, can't imagine Anaheim taking this deal.

5.) 25 May 2022 03:38:19
Love to have the two Max’s from Anaheim.
They both are young and would add physicality to a somewhat soft lineup.



17 Feb 2022 12:58:22
There is another defencemen I have been watching for a while and have been a target for us for a couple of years now. His name is Dylan DeMelo of the Winnipeg Jets. He’s 6’0 191 pounds and he a very physical defencemen that could fit in our lineup. Yea he may not be good offensively and doesn’t average many points per game or even points in a season and it’s hard because before this season he had scored in over two- three season. I know this isn’t my first choice but if I did this trade I would centre this trade around a guy like Andrew Copp. I’ve always been a fan of Copp and think he can fit the second or third line with the leafs. He’s got size on him which could really help the leafs out in the playoffs. Copp always has good production every year so he could be a player that could be apart of the future. So here’s how I would look at it and how I’d make a trade.

Jets receive: Ritchie, Holl or either Dermott, a 2023 third or fourth

Leafs receive: Copp, DeMelo and a third or fourth

I think this could be a trade that could workout for both sides and it could happen.


1.) 17 Feb 2022 14:39:27
I have also been a fan of Demelo since his days in Ottawa and was upset the Leafs did not trade for him. also a fan of Copp and actually came up with these 2 players as a possible deal just last night. however i dunno that we could re-sign Copp next year and i also think Jets would never take that deal from Leafs for DeMelo alone. he is signed to decent contract and for like 3 more years. we definately have to add to this deal.

2.) 17 Feb 2022 14:53:24
DeMelo has been discussed recently. Copp is one I have mentioned myself in the past. Like the targets, but man, you and I see values very differently. Copp plays top 6 minutes in Winnipeg. DeMelo has been getting more icetime since the coaching change, but is a really good 5 if not a complimentary 4.
So for what Winnipeg is offering, Toronto is offering an overpaid forward they have in the AHL (otherwise known as a cap dump), a struggling D-man or a D-man that cannot find a regular spot in the lineup and the Leafs will also get a draft pick this year in exchange for one next year.

You said this trade could help both teams, how does it help Winnipeg?

3.) 17 Feb 2022 17:51:08
When you buy a new car do you start the offer at 7$?

No chance either team accepts this.

4.) 19 Feb 2022 02:23:07
I’ve been advocating for DeMelo for years.
Leafs could have had him for nothing when San Jose put him on waivers.
Leafs could have acquired him when Ottawa made him available and Winnipeg picked him up for a 3rd round pick.
DeMelo would be a great addition and a big improvement over Holl on the 2nd pairing and PK.



03 Feb 2022 16:15:06
Leafs acquire: Chiarot, Lehkonen, Allen

Habs acquire: Ritchie. Holl, Mrazek.

The reason I add Mrazek is because if the leafs get Jake Allen, they will have less cap to pay for a backup goaltender and I think it could fit and I believe it could workout both ways.


1.) 03 Feb 2022 17:04:19
I don't quite understand why MTL would want to do this? We're sending them a 5-6 defender on most teams, a press box forward and a backup goalie that's done nothing of note so far.

2.) 03 Feb 2022 17:59:15
It is always great when guys that call others trade ideas as brutal or the worst he has ever seen, is the same guy that comes out with these beauties one after another. lol.

3.) 03 Feb 2022 21:50:14
He's just throwing them out there to see if they make sense in his next article lol.



01 Feb 2022 15:17:19
According to Elliotte Friedman the Leafs are still interested in Manson and Chiarot. I don’t care what any Leafs fans say the cheaper option is Chiarot. Manson would cost way too much and Anaheim is in a playoff spot so the Ducks wouldn’t want to get rid of him because they would need him for that playoff run. With Chiarot, he’s the best option. He won’t cost that much and these analysts can say that the Habs want a prospect, first round pick and a NHL roster player but I don’t think that’s what they’ll get. Dubas won’t want to waste a first round pick on a rental again so if you give a second or third then that might work but not a first round pick. Everyone can say the don’t like Chiarot but when we acquire him and he does what he is suppose to in the playoffs everyone will regret there words.


1.) 01 Feb 2022 19:20:19
Ask yourself something, why won't Chariot cost much? .

2.) 05 Feb 2022 21:30:33
Ben Chariot is garbage. Why do you think that the Montreal Canadiens as a whole are garbage? Any chance the Montreal Canadiens create the French Connection Line in trades for Claude Giroux, Jonathan Marchessault, and Johnny Gaudreau?

In my eyes I’m real lying liking the signing of Nicolas Aube-Kubel. I know the preseason and the regular season hasn’t started yet but I think he’s on of the more underrated signings that really no one has talked about. If he makes the team and plays in a shutdown role on a line with Zach Aston-Reese and Adam Gaudette, then I think it’s a great signing. I think that fourth line what I just said I see as the opening night fourth line and I do believe that those three will be the best fourth line in the league. Aube-Kubel is a solid depth forward that is very good defensively and when you need him to be that grinder type of player, he can do that. Adam Gaudette is a guy I wanted when Chicago and Ottawa put him on waivers last season. He’s very fast, skilled and can be a guy that’s hard to play against. Lastly Zach Aston-Reese. This is a guy I wanted from the start of free agency. I do see him signing a deal with us after his PTO if he makes the team. Very physical, can win puck battles in the corner and just a very great forward to have so I’m looking forward to these three guys in the lineup.




19 Sep 2022 16:18:04
I’ve been wondering who the Maple Leafs will trade for Holl. For me I literally can’t decide on a player I’d want to get. Maybe Anton Stralman. I have no clue. Like when you think of Justin Holl and you think of trading him I’m not sure you’ll be able to trade him for someone that is also a right handed shot defencemen. It’s probably very hard to trade Holl because of his value and how he isn’t that great. But for some teams his value could be great because team are in desperate need of a player like Holl. Do they trade him for nothing or do they trade him for a player in return or trade him and sign a defencemen to a PTO contract. This is a very confusing situation because one minute it’s Kerfoot next minute it’s Holl so it’s very weird and confusing.




18 Sep 2022 15:39:14
So in my opinion this is what I think needs to happen. The Maple Leafs need to be right at cap before the season. Someone has to get traded and I think it’ll be Justin Holl. This is what I’m thinking. You trade Holl and whatever how much cap space you have left go on the market and sign a defencemen like PK Subban. I know the more likely option is they will sign Sandin but here is why I would trade him or not sign him. I understand he was hurt this upcoming NHL season and didn’t play a lot of games, but in my eyes I feel like this season, Liljegren has surpassed him and has taken his spot. Everything that Liljegren did this year was absolutely great and fantastic. He was consistent and when he made a mistake he would fix them right away on the next shift and do something great. I don’t think I can really say the same about Sandin. I’m not saying I don’t want Sandin on the Leafs. I would love for him to stay and be back but if he can’t get signed then I would trade him to a team that need defensive help. Now when I said I wanted Subban, he’s a guy I would replace for Holl in the lineup right away. Subban is better then Holl and can throw the body around like him. Basically he’s a better version and same version of Holl but just better. I’d bring Subban in on a PTO and if he does better then Holl trade him and sign Subban. Simple.


1.) 18 Sep 2022 21:52:14
Everyone says "bring in Subban for cheap" does anyone know if he's willing though?

I'm not even sure if he wants to play anymore. Strikes me as the kind of guy that has other things going on in his life, not just hockey.

2.) 19 Sep 2022 11:44:46
I am really not sure of PK would be any improvement over Holl at this point on the ice. I have said the same thing as LL for years about PK having too many other interests and not enough focus on hockey. He is not that good defensively and has always been a little careless with the puck. He is not the guy I would be after as I would prefer a more physical defensive RD.
I also agree with LL in the sense that how does anyone know he will sign cheap? I mean this guy has a massive ego, will he really put that aside and play for cheap? I am not sure he will unless he is desperate to play somewhere in particular and I have not heard PK proclaim he really wants to play for the Leafs.

3.) 20 Sep 2022 12:28:02
Trading Holl would be a mistake IMO.

At $2m he is neither the problem nor the solution. His numbers are fine when not with Muzzin. He’s more than an adequate 3rd pairing.

The better solution in my view is to trade Muzzin while he still has value. He’s simply not worth $5.6m anymore. Yes I know he had a decent playoff but I’m not confident that can be sustained for a full season and a playoff.

This will allow the Leafs to resign Sandin, if they feel he is a long term player with upside. I’m okay with that and I’m okay with sending him somewhere for a decent return.

Send Sandin and Kerfoot to NYI for Scott Mayfield and I’d be more than happy. Cap problems resolved and a big physical RD for Rielly.

4.) 20 Sep 2022 20:29:54
And just like that, Subban retires at 33. I think we all could have predicted that.

5.) 21 Sep 2022 12:13:50
And I expect to hear soon he has signed on with a network as an analyst or something along those lines.



03 Mar 2022 04:54:37
The possibility of bringing in Marc Andre-Fleury just hypes me up and hope that happens. I know it won’t happen and he make way too much and Toronto can get Chicago to retain cap. It would help Jack out a lot because with the slump that he is on right now and getting a guy like Fleury to come in here and backup Campbell and be a player that has playoff experience could help this team out along way. Now according to Dennis Bernstein of the fourth period and is a good buddy of Dave Pagnotta, he said Toronto had interest in Connor Garland. Obviously he’s a guy that Dubas would want to get and would fit on that second line with JT and Nylander. Garland is fast and it could boost that second line and he’s a really good passer so he’s good at feeding the puck to players to step for a goal. Now Hampus Lindholm would be another great option to have. Big two way defender who can be physical and can have offence in his game as well so he could work on that second or maybe even first line. And lastly Max Domi. Domi is a guy who I’ve been wanting on the Leafs for years. He’s just like his dad but has more offence and if he can bring the same skills and passion his dad had and the same style his dad had then I honestly believe Toronto can go far and he can help impact this team on the long run.


1.) 03 Mar 2022 15:26:51
Agree with domi, I’m one of the few on here willing to take a flyer in him.

I like garland a lot.

Lindholm I don’t mind but I don’t think I’ll like the price for him.

Fleury is a hard no for me. To much money, to old, to much risk.

I would much rather see them go after korpisalo or Georgiev. Fleury has mike smith written all over his face, real close to regressing into a negative impact player.

2.) 03 Mar 2022 20:44:56
I wanted Garland for a long time but Flower is a no go. He makes way to much, he isn't playing well, he's at an age where we don't know if he will recover, so many red flags.

Domi is 27 and hasn't done anything is his career beyond one outlier season. Don't want him.

Post a trade on how you want all of this done now.

I want Makar, but I'm not sure how.



27 Feb 2022 14:42:08
I’m the type of guy that is still on the Chiarot chain and bringing him to Toronto. When I look at the market of all defencemen available that are left handed, there really isn’t anyone that is similar to Jake Muzzin and the only one that comes to mind is Ben Chiarot. Big body, very physical and gritty, blocks a lot of shots and yea he may take a lot of penalties but that comes with the role and the style of play that you play every night. I think he’d be that replacement for Jake Muzzin until he comes back. If you can’t trade for him then sign him. This is a guy that Dubas wanted to sign but couldn’t get a deal done and that was the same off-season as the Tyson Barrie- Nazem Kadri trade. So if we can’t acquire him at the deadline then sign him in the off-season. But this is a guy that when I watched the playoffs last year he was the most known guy on the ice and his name was mentioned so much and he was making it challenging to play against and the top guys on the leafs had struggles playing against him. Honestly for the time being I would do this trade and I’d convince Montreal to add anything besides a first round pick for him because we know he ain’t getting a first round pick in a trade but we’ll see but if I’m Dubas I’m making this deal happen.


1.) 27 Feb 2022 17:29:05
So you want Chariot and Domi. That's the solution to this team? Lol.

I think this wouldn’t happen because of how much cap space is going to be taken up but those are really good options but like I said it would love to have them but it’s going to cost a lot of money coming the other way and players that Dubas won’t want to give up.
