Tor: jarnkrok
Njd: bastian

One for one saw that New Jersey might be looking to try and trade for keefe favourite player bastian fits more of what the new leafs are looking for big power forward and there's cap savings for the leafs

Tor: marner
Vgk: Theodore Thompson

Toronto uses cap space to add a centre and or a pesce deal

My potential blockbuster I just thought of

Tor: marner hildeby abruzzese
Vgk: Theodore karlsson Thompson

Yes it seem one sided 100% but what is the knights MO they don't care if they lose the trade if they get their guy they also don't care if feelings get hurt this trade saves Vegas a bit of money but it's allows them to bring back a guy or two.

Now for the leafs end of it we just did what Winnipeg did last year turned 1 guy into multiple Theodore gives them a good two way puck mover it gives them centre depth and it gives them a tandem in net

Not a bad proposal.
If Shea Theodore was a RHD instead of a LHD this deal might work but…
Leafs greatest need on defense is a RHD not a LHD who can play on the right when necessary.
Karlsson is a good player but at 31 years of age I would much prefer Leafs target younger players.
Also with all of their cap shenanigans how could Vegas fit Marner’s $10.9 onto their payroll.


2.) 23 May 2024 09:43:49
@WB Theodore becomes the 1lhd and Reilly becomes the second pair karlsson is a bit older but still effective had 30 goals last year is a two way centre i think he has to be part of the deal to make the money work which if you add 5.9 and 5.2 it adds to 11.1 that’s how Vegas makes it work.

Tor: marner (with extension) pick 23
Ana: vatrano 3rd pick

Vatrano put up 37 goals last years on an expiring deal 16 pts in 34 games in the playoffs only making just over 3.5 then leafs trade up 20 spots and take your pick on impactful prospects

1.) 21 May 2024 18:45:26
In a heartbeat.


2.) 22 May 2024 22:03:30
I doubt marner is gonna waive at all, but definitely not to play in Anaheim.


3.) 23 May 2024 01:35:00
If, if, if Marner was to waive his NTC the 3rd overall pick would be enticing.

What must be remembered is that pick will be 2 years away from making the Leafs roster and Leafs window to compete for a Cup will be getting narrower and narrower.

I think the Leafs need a goaltender and a RHD who can step into the lineup this fall and impact the team.

Gibson is no longer an elite goaltender but certainly far superior to Samsonov.
With Woll’s injury history Leafs can not depend on him to be their #1.
Olen Zellweger a RHD is ready for prime time

To Leafs: John Gibson, Olen Zellweger, 2024 - 1st round pick (#3)

To Ducks: Marner, Liljegren, Hildeby.

Tor: marner reilly
Utah: lamoureux 6th overall pick and tor 2nd in 2025

So here's my thinking the leafs free up roughly 18 mil in cap space and get assets for the future Utah has already stated that they plan on using their cap space this offseason adding two big name guys without subtracting anything from their lineup would be attractive are the leafs winning this trade no but cap space is like gold in todays nhl and with the amount of quality players in free agency I think the leafs could rebuild their blueline along with the overall structure of the team

Goat2.0

1.) 15 May 2024 13:39:47
I like. I'd also like to see bjugstad come back aswell.


2.) 16 May 2024 01:39:38
I don’t think Utah can afford to absorb the full $18 million dollar cap hit of Marner and Reilly.
But I like the deal.
Lamoureux is a RHD, 6’7”, 200lbs with offensive upside.
With the 6th overall pick Leafs select Tij Iginla.
I’m a big fan of Bujgstad and advocated for Dubas to trade for him the past 2 trade deadlines.
He would be a good and cheap 3rd line center for the Leafs.

An interesting name that maybe the leafs could consider for an assistant coach might be dale hunter the guy has been in London for awhile now and they seem to always have a great team

Goat2.0

1.) 13 May 2024 18:53:46
I'm really not a fan of junior coaches a lot of the time.

Some teams always have a strong roster, and it's hard to say what it is they're doing right as opposed to just the great roster they have at their disposal.


2.) 13 May 2024 21:33:01
I know he coached briefly in the NHL in the past, but I am hoping for an experienced coach who has had more success than making the 2nd round once. We went rookie GM and rookie coach and it was a mistake. I didn't like it then and I don't want a repeat of the same mistake. Gallant is still my choice unless Sullivan becomes available.


3.) 13 May 2024 22:31:31
True was just a thought I think to me I’m more curious as to who the assistants are than I am the head coach.


4.) 13 May 2024 22:34:19
I seen gallant was not interviewing for the job as far as the media has reported it’s a two horse race unless they don’t like either of the guys they interviewed then who knows.


5.) 13 May 2024 23:11:54
I think the Hunters have a pretty good thing going in London.
I believe Dale coached the Caps for a year or two, before Barry Trotz came in and won a cup. Dale went back to junior because and I quote " teenagers are easier to coach than millionaires "

Also Mark was pretty pissed ( and rightfully so) when he lost out on the Leafs GM job to some guy, I think his name was Kyle something.


6.) 13 May 2024 23:35:01
Goat. That's too bad. Gallant typically has about a 2 year shelf life, but he gets quick results and that is what this team needs. No more coaching a nd GM experiments. Don't have time for that as Matthews etc are in their prime.

So what's everyone's thought after the pre conference today. don't really understand how shanahan still has a job. To me it was a lot of the same stuff and the media is kinda spinning what was said they said they are looking at everything which could mean no change is coming the only clarity we got was that woll will be the starter next year

Goat2.0

1.) 11 May 2024 01:32:31
Nothing will change. That's what I got from it.


2.) 11 May 2024 10:14:55
That’s what I got too all they said was it was unacceptable that they lost again and they will look at everything idk what dirt shanny has on mlse but to see real change he needs to go.


3.) 11 May 2024 18:04:28
@Goat I really don't think Mitch will waive his NMC. It's all well and good to say "press box him if he won't waive", but no coach or GM will want to lose Marner all year. He's still going to put up points as well, which means he will get a good contract. This is the retool 2 years. Let the money fall off and see what Tre can do.


 

 

05 May 2024 10:32:44
Well in the bright side we should see some big changes I thought Sammy cost them the series game winner not his fault but the tying goal is just not and nhl goal and then on the game winner marners and Reilly watching the puck and their man blows past them and that's it folks. The fact that Toronto got that far in the series was crazy especially not having a power play goals and for some reason i will never understand why they wouldn't move off it is beyond me fire the entire coaching staff fire shanny send marner packing send Reilly packing Bertuzzi can go and even domi both were supposed to be these big playoff performers and yes they mixed it up but on the score sheet they were just as bad as the core

Goat2.0

1.) 05 May 2024 18:44:55
Domi and Bertuzzi were good. I don't blame middle 6 forwards when Mathews, Willy, Mitch and JT all make over 11m. You give forwards that much because they score. It's on them.


2.) 05 May 2024 22:07:49
Also the winner was 100 % Sammy's fault. He had so much time to play that puck. He was just scared and didn't do anything to play that right. Others are at fault to for poor coverage, but that puck should have been gone as soon as Sammy saw pasta flying passed marner.

So who do we want as the leafs new head coach? I heard rod the bods contract is up after this year.. I also wonder about marlies coach John gruden don't know much about him other then he was an assistant coach with Boston. I truly believe this team needs a coach with strong systems over a hard nose guy like burbe

Goat2.0

1.) 30 Apr 2024 04:19:29
Jon Gruden is my pick for who gets hired.

If Brindamour is available, give him whatever he wants. I don't think he is, but a man can dream.

Wanted Gallant in the off season, still be happy to have him.


2.) 30 Apr 2024 08:59:49
Money talks and that’s one great thing about being corporate owned they can toss stupid money at rod that most can’t… I’m not really into having knuckle draggers like gallant he too has demons coaches a good team successfully for two years then gets himself fired.


3.) 30 Apr 2024 12:17:58
Man if Rod is available. I’d trade Marner for him straight up. Don’t see them not resigning him though unless he wants out. Other than that, someone that can teach defence in their own end and hold everyone accountable, even Nylander.


4.) 30 Apr 2024 15:23:56
@clarky like I said I think Toronto realistically can offer him more but ultimately depends on what he wants to do.


5.) 30 Apr 2024 18:35:21
@Clarky and Goat

I'd love to have Rod as well, but he seems really set on staying with the Canes. How much does he care about money? He's made a bunch as a coach, and was a pre-cap player. I'm not sure if he needs 70m the same as a guy like Keefe.


 

 

29 Apr 2024 17:53:40
Tor: marner
Vgk: karlsson, Hague and a 2nd

If there's a top player to be had Vegas will be in on them they just picked up another centre in hertl they have Roy and eichel too leafs get karlsson who isn't end all be all but he's a good two way player and a centre then the leafs also grab 6'6 dman Hague still only 25 and most likely the leafs have to retain a bit so Vegas throws in a 2nd to me if marner is gonna waive it's gonna be for a good team I think the leafs add some decent pieces and start into a new direction with this team

Goat2.0

1.) 29 Apr 2024 19:03:35
I’d honestly entertain any trade with Marner involved but I like it.

@rfl I guess you got to look at where their scoring comes from I think LA is a good target I just don’t see them moving kempe tbh and I could be wrong idk.

I might be the only one to say this but if domi is brought back he has to play centre that’s where he was his most effective yes he’s not great defensively but he is good in the faceoff plus I think it’s more beneficial to either push Tavares to the wing or the third line.

Only problem with this trade is I’d think they would want marner for setting up kempe.

I can see Brady requesting a trade sooner then later if Ottawa can’t make the playoffs.

Sounds like the assistants will be savard and van Ryan both who worked with berube.

I think when it comes to marner seems like there’s too much push behind him being moved from all angles that even he wouldn’t want to stay I mean even his security team (didn’t know he had one) are going at fans I think it’s best for both parties to find a resolution Tavares is different because he has a young family.
