Andy Greene

To NJersey
Bracco,3rd rounder

Cap works until reilly and or muzzin come back. By then i'm sure leafs can figure it all out. While they are gone greene is a fair replacement. Not as good odviously but better than running out dermott marincin and a rookie...

Greene plays both sides regularly so once everyone is healthy he definetly makes the D better for the playoffs when there is no cap..


Could even try to get domingues while they are at it..but that's for another trade

Is Greene better than that rookie though? I really think Sandin deserves his chance right now. There’s lots of time until Feb 25.

2.) 15 Jan 2020 07:02:24
I like it. I really like the idea of having a guy that plays both sides. No matter who goes down he can fill in.

Looks like Sandin will stay. That means burning a year of ELC so might as well use him though so I'm not sure if anything more than a depth guy is needed.

3.) 15 Jan 2020 10:27:24
That rookie did pretty good last night Craiggger. Lol.

I hope we don’t even need a defenseman. Liljegren has been called up too. Seeing how good Sandin did makes me think we should give Liljegren a chance too.

4.) 15 Jan 2020 16:32:24
Yes Liljegren should be given a few games
Sit Marincin or Ceci.

5.) 15 Jan 2020 22:41:22
Still can’t understand why they signed Marincin. The only reason he is being used is because he was just re-signed. It’s not because he’s any better than any of the other plugs we got in the Marlies right now. He can’t possibly be so much better than Liljegren would mean swapping them out would make or break the team. Let them have their chance. I hope they take it and run with it.

6.) 16 Jan 2020 02:05:11
I think it’s probably expansion draft related plus a bottom of the line up plug!

To Tor

4th rd pick

Forbort is conditioning coming back from injury and is a upcoming UFA. He is big and with muzzin out becomes a great partner for Holl(both minnesota boys) if he works out is a great pickup who could be signed long termed

Bracco is prize and duszak is a project and young. Ceci at half is what forbort is paid so money in money out. No biggy to kings if ceci is worse as they get 4th for the thankyou from the leafs



1.) 01 Jan 2020 12:18:44
Forbort was playing top line beside Doughty. I don’t know if Kings plan to keep him there long, but until he got hurt he was LA’s best defenseman. He’s big, hits, logs big minutes, plays all situations, he would be a great addition. He’s underrated. We should be able to re-sign him cheap because offense is limited. All round he is a very good player though. I would be happy if Leafs were able to swing a deal like this somehow. It is definitely the right idea. LA might want better pick/ prospects, but I’m sure if they would downgrade from Forbort to Ceci for us, we can find the right package of futures to send back. Very smart thinking Craigger.

2.) 01 Jan 2020 19:17:58
Definitely a good trade. I like it alot. Well thought out Craigger.

Just for fun

To tor
2020 1st

To nyrangers



1.) 21 Dec 2019 14:11:02
Whoa. Similar to what I posted for a Marner, except you added zibanajad and a 1st. So you think Matthews is worth significantly more than Marner? (He is imo too) . Is he worth Zibanajad and a 1st more than Marner? Very debateable.

If Rangers were to say yes to this then Leafs has better dump on it.

2.) 21 Dec 2019 15:59:07
I think Mathews probably is worth worth that much more. Goal scorers are harder to come by and Mathews is a centre.



18 Dec 2019 00:26:20
To calgary

To toronto
1st rounder 2020

Since adding ceci costs leafs a pick i'd have to think adding hamonic is same kind of deal..barrie costs less and is better..pretty simple right


1.) 18 Dec 2019 14:12:08
I see what you’re doing Craigger. And I like it. As always I got a smile reading your proposal today.

2.) 18 Dec 2019 17:51:05
Lol. Well played sir.

3.) 19 Dec 2019 23:57:54
The only issue is it would put the leafs over the cap a smudge, so money retention of throwing in a cheapie to balance the trade, cal probably will ask for gautier or more and not touch spezza.

91 million total. youd need roughly 18 million in ltir to get under cap properly

The good news is its duable. the bad news is this offseason LTIR players will become harder to come up with as a bunch are coming off teams books.

Solid proposal. however with seguin being a party boy will he be in tip top shape when its go time. i'm scared to see how some come back after this layoff. matthews and nylander scare me also. itll be 80s training camp all over again. off season workouts will be laxed due to C-19 so camp becomes weight loss program instead of go time from the get go. guess we will all see though.

Sandin is what 3 years younger than chabot and at his age has more nhl and ahl experience than chabot did at same age. They both won outstanding D at world jrs the year after their draft. So give sandin another year and as he may not be better than chabot he won't be much behind him and much cheaper. Adding that first and liljegren is a steep price as sandin in ottawa may get close to chabots points as someone needs to get the points from the backend on a bad team. chabot is leafs second maybe even third best D option and doesn't come cheap.

Their is zero chance Islandjet can even comprehend. He only sees leafs big contracts as negative values but forgets the other end of it. chabot is freakin expensive. He will be top ten per year contract for Dmen once his new contract starts. so if marner due to his contract isn't worth conner than how is chabot worth sandin a first and liljegren once you take contract into account. such nonsense from a no sense guy.

The comment made by Islandjet is yet another example of a useless comment made about a good proposal. trolling makes him the joke of this site.

If you really needed money today and someone offered you $1000 or gave you the option to put it in a stock that in 5 years could potentially give you $10,000 what would you do?

Thats this deal and there really is no right or wrong answer . just depends if you want the talent now or potenial more talent later

Good thinker as always.

Sakic is a huge Marner fan (forsberg type passer and becoming defender without the scoring touch) . With the avs big 3 why not bring in a big 4? Along with kadri the avs can finally role out 2 great lines.

Yes Makar appears destined for a Norris but dmen are hard to judge. Goalies make less saves following year and dmen look at fault. Jersey saw this happen quickly.

Yes marners contract is huge but colorado has the space and money. Marner is less a risk as an offensive player than makar is as a defensive player.

Its a iffy deal on both sides but so much positives for both teams it could happen

Signing Hall is a hot topic around here. Hey even if deal doesn't happen leafs sign hall then make tunnes of deals to get under cap

Dubas want quality more than quantity so if giving up 3 3 million dollar middle 6 guys to get a 9 million top line guy you bet dubas will do it

Solud suggestions.
