To Toronto
Ryan Graves(RFA rights) 5X5
Nikita Zadorov(RFA rights) 4X4
Tyson Jost(RFA rights) 2X1.5

To Colorado
Morgan Rielly
Alex Kerfoot

Colorado wants to compete next year. Byram isn't quite ready. Might want 1 year in ahl. If makar and girard happen to regress offensively(happens to young guys) rielly has proven he can be a point producer.
Colorado was hesitant to deal kerfoot but got kadri out of it. Why not get him back and play 3rd line C now that colin wilson is gone. Perfect replacement. Definetly added tunnes of speed in this deal.

Rielly makar
Girard johnson
Anderson Cole Timmons

For toronto they get 2 defensive dmen. Also jost looks like he needs a change..maybe toronto is the place he can find his stride.

Both graves and zadorov are unwilling to sign 2 year deals. They are 25 so 2 years takes them into free agency. Giving them more years costs a bit more due to you're paying for free agent years. Colorado won't do this for them. They want a 2 year commitment because makar is due next summer. Rielly fits what they want and stay favorites still with this deal.

Muzzin Zadorov
Graves Dermott
Lehtenon/Sandin Holl/Liljegren

If andersen is thrown into this deal i'm sure one of colirados goalies not named hutchison and a pick would come back torontos way..for now ill stick to the smaller deal

To Toronto
Forward Yakov Trenin (RFA rights)
RHD Frederic Allard

To Nashville
LHD Travis Dermott (RFA rights)

Small trade. With ellis,santini and fabbro manning the right side for nashville and only josi and ekholm on the left side this is a good opportunity to swing a deal. Dermott and santini would make a solid bottom pairing for Nashville.

Allard is a good defensively responsible dman who gets his shares of points. He hasn't got to prove if he is nhl worthy yet but with a +47 rating over past 2 seadons in minors he might be a guy to get and see if he can make leafs. If not he's a great ahl player.hes 22

Trenin is a descent 3rd/4th line winger. Might be good enough to gill johnssons role if he gets dealt.hes 23

Leafs have too many LHD..why not give a RHD a chance he wouldn't get in Nashville.it helps nashville is a dman factory



1.) 15 Sep 2020 01:10:31
22 is still young for a defenseman. It sounds like he must be close to nhl ready now. Nashville has a pretty high standard for their defensemen, so they must really see something in him.

It seems like a good idea, but it also seems like a real gamble. If Allard doesn’t work out, all we get is a depth forward we don’t really need.

I think they would be better trying Dermott on the right side first, and then if that didn’t work out, a deal like this wouldn’t be out of question, though they might be better off taking a pick instead of Trenin so we aren’t taking on an extra contract.

Dermott to LA for Roy

LA has no LHD. Just a bunch of maybes with less than 18 games experience between all of them(Anderson,Bjornfot,clague and phillips)

LA has 4 RHD(doughty,resently signed walker,macdermid and roy)

So with no experienced LHD and 4 RHD this deal makes perfect sense. Its not the only thing LA will do this offseadon but definetly a start to their offseason(rumoured to be in on hall and krug with 14 million cap space available and 1 heck of a prospect pool)

Rielly Roy
Muzzin Holl

Its a start


1.) 13 Sep 2020 16:25:03
I have suggested Dermott for Roy before so I’m 100% on board. Roy isn’t a guy who throws his body around that much, but he is solid in his own end and he would definitely be the best d partner Reilly has had so far. He is also on a dirt cheap deal at league minimum and is an RFA when it expires. Honestly, if the leafs made this trade and then they could get an upgrade over Holl to play with Muzzin, that’s how they would fix their defence.

2.) 13 Sep 2020 20:54:32
So trade for Roy and sign DeMelo. i think that would greatly improve the D. DeMelo would be perfect partner for Reilly. Roy with Muzzin and bump Holl down to 3rd pair.

3.) 13 Sep 2020 22:14:36
Muzzin seems good with Holl. If need be I have no problem with the pairing. Holl probably is a bottom pairing guy on most teams so I get the sentiment though.

To tor



To Tor
lebanc rfa rights
True rfa rights
SJ 2020 2nd

Word out of LA is management wants this rebuild quick. 6 offensive prospects ready to make nhl jump plus soon to be byfield is more than enough to go with the vets. They want a LHD to play with doughty bad. They just signed walker so roy is expandable. Vilardi is often hurt but huge when he plays. Grunstrom i just miss..lol..rielly instantly improves team to contention and might even save quicks career..even with kovalchuk and phaneufs 10 million in buyout they have 14 plus million. They are rumoured in hall so adding him and rielly plus the youth makes them contenders once again..krug will be too rich if they want hall..rielly 5 million is the range they want for LD and rielly is best at that price, when he needs to resign the buyouts will be gone so he can get big deal.

San jose is very disappointed. Not only did they send picks to ottawa but they sucked so ottawa gains huge. Getting rielly at 5 million for 2 years makes this D so deadly. Jones instantly improves and san jose contends. True and lebancs new deals will combine around 4-5 milliion so they need to go to fit rielly in..merkely is rhd prospect and the 2nd is just an added bonus but if to rich change to 3rd or 4th..whatever..again krug is too rich for this team as well..rielly at 5 is a steal.

Muzzin roy
Dermott holl
Sandin lehtonen/lili

4 million gained in cap to get d help if want


Muzzin dermott
Lehtonen holl
Sandin lili

But now with lebanc and true kerfoot and johnsson get used to find a D or they trade for prospects and use money for krug or a ufa D...



1.) 13 Sep 2020 10:20:19
Yes we need help on d so let’s trade our current best one
Thumbs up 👍.

Tor trades

Minn trades
Pitts 2021 1st

Nylander becomes minnys best offensive weapon. Holl is a minny boy. Greenway is bff to bracco and linemates of matthews for 2 years. Dumba is a stud at best but injury put his upside in question. The 1st covers the question of dumbas health

Greenway signs bridge much like conner brown @ 3X 2.1
Mikhayev 2 X 1.9
Dermott 2 X 2.35
Bracco 1X1 (show me deal)

Leafs can use that pitts 1st 2021 towards murray if want or just hold onto it

Hyman tavares marner
Greenway matthews bracco(i wrote it 1st)
Johnsson kerfoot mikhayev
barbie + any 4

Muzzin dumba
Rielly dermott
Sandin lehtonen/lili

Andy soups

81.65..oh so close

Now imagine that ottawa deal happens as well..mikhayev white brown..then cap is over by 2.25 but gabby takes care of that plus some..lol..

Minny deal thoughts?
Minny ottawa combo deal thoughts?

Lets just hope ottawa deal goes first or this will be out of whack...


1.) 12 Sep 2020 23:10:18
Minny just grabbed bjugstad from pittsburgh and pittsburgh retained half.

Its been well documentef that holl gardiner and bjugstad are all best friends from minny so 2/ 3 after this deal

Next minny gets gardiner for pick and prospect. if carolina retains half as well it will be much like bjugstad deal in which is future considerstion pick.

Thats all 3. its all comin together. lol.

2.) 13 Sep 2020 01:25:50
Honestly I don’t want to hate on this post because I do like it but I have to. Bracco hasn’t even proved to be a fourth liner and you expect him to play second line. He won’t he’s out of time and now a bust. Unfortunate but true. And Dumba would be playing with Riley not muzzin. So we now need someone to still play with Riley or muzzin.

Edmondson got a 5th in same situation. montreal wasnt getting him for the 8th year to bring aav doen per year either

Petro is getting dealt so team can get his extra year to lower the cap hit per year

St. louis knows this so expect a haul for that extra year because its huge negotions wise.

Chabot costs ottawa 8X8 and makar if wins norris next season will get marner money . lol

I wish leafs just tanked 1 extra season. makar or heiskenen would of been theirs. lol

That 16-17 season was a fluke for both colorado and dallas beeing so bad as it was leafs being so good.

Every great team seems to have a bad season here and there enabling them to get a top 5 pick in between each couple of cup runs. lol.

Reimer would be coming back not mrazek. if mrazek comes back replace pesce with lesser D

If Allen a ufa next summer who is backup/ frige starter goalie gets a 3rd then andersen gets a 2nd maybe even a 1st if going to a playoff team.

Johnsson a 3rd

Pesce would get a 1st,2 prospects and younger not as established top 6 rosterD.
Mrazek would get a 2nd and prospect

Andersen cancels Pesce 1st
Johnsson cancels 1 mrazeks prospect

2 prospects and younger d still owing

Dermott, abramov and Woll plus andersen and johnsson
Mrazek and pesce

Best to just deal with reimer and his 3.4 cap hit for 1 year then
Andersen and dermott and johnsson
Pesce and reimer.
