To Tor: D - M. Weegar + F - O. Tippett

To Fla: D - M. Reilly

I think I saw this on here before but forget the responses. I think Dubas should be all over something like this as we will most likely lose Reilly next year anyways.


1.) 10 Aug 2021 15:39:58
In the past when Weegar was RFA and not signed it made sense for both teams. Why would Fla do this now? Weegar has been very good and makes a lot less than Rielly and is signed 1 season longer. Tippett is still on his ELC and had a really good rookie season and playoffs. This is huge in the Leafs favour now. Dubas had his chance and missed it already.

2.) 10 Aug 2021 21:58:16
There is value here for both teams for sure. Florida has a stud RD but not a high quality partner. Weegar is good yes, but not as good as Rielly. Weegar only projects as a 2nd pairing Dman, so the Leafs lose the better player

Rielly will need a new deal as well, whereas Weegar is signed to a good deal for 1 more year.

Tippet was a high pick, but has not materialized and is a middle 6 winger, very replaceable.

3.) 10 Aug 2021 23:47:33
@ T-buds. I would like to know what stats you are using that has Rielly as a first pair and Weegar as a 2nd pair dman. If Florida would do this, we would be stupid not to.

4.) 11 Aug 2021 12:32:09
I agree with you RLF, Dubas missed his chance on Weegar.

Now would be the time to go all in for Carter Hart from Philly

Leafs Trade Andersen, Nylander, 1st 2021
Flyers Trade Hart, Myers



1.) 29 Mar 2021 17:58:53
Not enough philly is t going to make any rash decision on the season because there is so many variables to this season I can see them trying to move older players but they have a lot of older guys on big contracts.

2.) 29 Mar 2021 18:20:02
I would be willing to send more personally, Hart is in a slump but is a stellar goalie when he’s on his game. Maybe take out Myers and ask for Ghost.

3.) 29 Mar 2021 19:36:36
Yea hart is having a tough go so why would philly move him he’s what 21-22 most goalies don’t hit their prime till age 25.

4.) 29 Mar 2021 20:22:03
I’m saying his value is at an all time low. Not sure if they would move him but it’s worth a shot.

5.) 29 Mar 2021 21:01:31
From the Leafs. NO. Hart is in a funk, but so is the entire team. Hart, in my opinion, isn't much of an upgrade from Anderson. Nylander and a 2021 1st are a bit much for Myers or Ghost.
Go Leafs!

6.) 29 Mar 2021 21:19:28
Hart has at least won a playoff series thought, might be a little biased here being from Alberta (so is Hart) but I think he is a massive upgrade on Andersen.

7.) 29 Mar 2021 22:28:45
Hart is a good goalie. He may end up she'll shocked though. They seem to have put him in a bad position.

Early 20s goalie who is playing on a garbage defensive team. Poor kid.

8.) 30 Mar 2021 02:52:00
There are backups that are better than Andersen.

Hart is an excellent goalie that Philadelphia has invested their entire future on. He is their Price. Their Rask. Their, well, you get the point.

I can’t think of any reason why Philly would trade Hart for Nylander+.

Is it fair value? Probably more than fair.

Does it make sense? Not really.

Is it cap compatible? No.

9.) 30 Mar 2021 17:09:47
If I'm giving up nylander, I'm going for gibson.



14 Mar 2021 09:17:40
I’m aware these past few games aren’t all on Freddy, but he can’t compete with Hellebuyck, Markstrom, or Price for the playoffs.

Leafs trade Andersen, Liljegren, 1st
Ducks trade Gibson

Is this an overpay or an underpay?


1.) 14 Mar 2021 11:03:28
Ducks won’t take Andersen.

2.) 14 Mar 2021 11:39:54
Last year until UFA and he can walk, a 1st and Liljegren would get them listening for sure.

3.) 14 Mar 2021 13:39:59
Andersen defeats the purpose of trading Gibson. If they are trading Gibson for futures, they are in full rebuild. Andersen becomes a cap dump they take on, but he could help them win games which they would not want. I think you have to add fairly significantly if you want them to take Andersen.

4.) 14 Mar 2021 16:42:18
Hense why you deal him to a contending team without a goalie with proven record of any kind (Chicago, Washington, Minnesota) to be security in case any of those teams rookie go through a slump which is very likely.

Then go get Gibson

Funny how my idea looked stupid to most but now you see why it’s got to go this way

Non contending teams won’t want him and only these 3 contending teams could use them if they don’t feel comfortable with their youngsters just yet.

Andersen for 4th rd (probably best you’ll get for any contending team backup plan if youngster slumps)

Then deal what it will take without hurting core to get Gibson.

5.) 14 Mar 2021 18:42:32
@Craigger. i never thought your idea was stupid. it was just imcomplete that first time. lol. i agree about getting Gibson or some other top goalie. but have to place Freddy somewhere. i just dunno that Ducks want to get rid of him. i was thinking the other day. when leafs have been in the playoffs from all the good teams i have seen they always had a great goalie i did not have to worry about. Cujo. Belfour. Potvin. Fuhr and even Wregget. it's been a long time since this team focused on the crease and i wonder why that is?

6.) 14 Mar 2021 19:10:56
In all fairness Craigger, I posted a trade of Andersen to Chicago where we only take back a 3rd and a prospect noting they have tons of LTIR space to do this and may want Andersen for a playoff run to support what Kane has done this year. I also said we then use the $5M in new cap space to go after Gibson for instance. This was a couple of days before your idea. You had even commented on mine that they need to add Subban in the return.

Your trade idea had us getting no new cap space at all, players we don't need and taking on LTIR. It also didn't mention now going after Gibson or whomever which is why it took scrutiny from me and others.

7.) 14 Mar 2021 21:06:03
I’ll admit, my idea did look stupid. Any deal involving goalie swaps and multiple teams will look stupid.

Maybe pull the whole lehner thing. Trade him to a secondary team with cap space so that team can take part of his cap for a pick and send him to another team

It all looks stupid but in the end no matter how it’s done it gets the job done something Andersen hasn’t and can’t get done while being a leaf.

8.) 15 Mar 2021 12:46:59
It's not that it looks stupid, it is just really unlikely and hard to pull off. Considering the idea had already been posted on here and explained why and how it could be done, including the part about Chicago's LTIR room and that they may want a goalie, to say most on here don't have the foresight to see what you were really doing was an odd statement considering you got the idea off of here yourself. lol.

I don’t think ANA would want Dermott of Engvall, they are rebuilding and looking for picks or prospects. Also to add I think Manson is way better than a 3rd pair D man. Likely would cost us a 2nd and a B prospect without the retain. Throw in a 1st and they think about it.

This also might be controversial but I think Buffalo says no. They most likely won’t give up their entire future for Marner as most think he is overpaid. Dahlin is a future 1-2D Cozens is projected to be 2C and Quinn is a top 6 F. Although they are getting rid of skinner, I still think they pass.

I would be fine with shipping Marner but not for that package. Tarasenko scares me as he is a sniper not a playmaker. Who will feed Matthews the puck?

Saw it on Instagram yes, not sure if it is true or not. If Pelech is around 5M AAV I would be really interested.
