Given the option what does everything think. Schmidt for a third or Brodie?

Personally I would have traded someone and taken both. A Muzzin-Brodie pairing and Reilly- Schmidt looks like a helluva top 6 to me. Given the chance though, I probably trade for schmidt over signing Brodie. Hitting machine that plays well in his own end? Sign me up.

It’s hard to judge since the Schmidt deal was so last second I feel like the leafs never had a shot.

2.) 21 Oct 2020 04:48:27
Agreed Leafs1994 more of just a hypothetical though based on what he went for.

3.) 21 Oct 2020 06:44:22
I would say we can’t get Schmidt but why not Hamonic at this point why wouldn’t he take a cheap one year deal I’m honestly trying to figure out why he hasn’t been picked up yet.

4.) 21 Oct 2020 09:17:04
We don’t know if the opportunity had ever presented itself. I would assume it must have, as Vegas probably would have preferred not to trade Schmidt to another West coast team is my guess. So they must have at least approached Dubas.

If we took on Schmidt for a pick though, we would have had to dump a significant amount of salary. Which basically would have meant Nylander. Is Schmidt plus a bunch of futures worth it to replace Nylander? I would think so, but hard to say after we already traded Johnsson and Kapanen. The forward depth would have been a lot worse.

Schmidt is ranked 18th for his position. That easily puts him in the top 50 for defensemen. He’s higher rated than Brodie. Significantly higher.

I’m not saying I’d rather have him over Brodie. But having them both on the team sure would have been nice.

Hammonic opted out of the playoff bubble due to his young daughter contracting a lung C.V. a couple years a ago. He didn’t want to risk anything and maybe is waiting to determine how the season will be played before he puts pen to paper.

6.) 21 Oct 2020 13:11:33
Yea, the big thing with Schmidt was cap hit. Main reason they only got a 3rd for him. Some teams had already made moves by the time they got Piet signed and didn't have the space to take him on without moving another piece or pieces. I think Vegas didn't want to get caught in a position of trying to hold on for something better and then getting stuck with adding a pick or prospect to a deal just to get someone to take some cap off their hands.

Anyone else hear Clifford was offered 1.5x3 years? If that's true I'm not sure why. That seems like an overpayment to me.


1.) 09 Oct 2020 15:31:22
Lol with a flat cap no way he gets that somewhere else.



24 Sep 2020 05:18:01
Rumour keeps popping up that Dubas may move Reilly to get Petro. I can only say, I pray this is not true.


1.) 24 Sep 2020 09:44:08
I think it would be the end of him the whole reason the leafs would want petro is to play with Reilly.

2.) 24 Sep 2020 13:06:05
I think it's fakenews, no way Dubas moves out Rielly. That does not improve the team.

3.) 24 Sep 2020 13:51:50
He might if he signed Petro. Muzzin and Petro become top pairing and with Petro it's a guarantee Reilly is gone in 2 years.

4.) 24 Sep 2020 14:00:03
Brutal move if he does.

5.) 24 Sep 2020 14:04:14
If he did that, he should be fired instantly.

6.) 24 Sep 2020 15:25:39
Leafs life I thought that too but depending on what he signs for maybe able to keep both I think the leafs can trade Nylander any day of the week to make room.

7.) 24 Sep 2020 17:46:32
Trade Nylander and add Reilly the cap hell gets even worse. If Reilly stays it has to be Marner. Reilly will be asking 8+ easily. I don't see how you trade Nylander and add Reilly's new deal.

8.) 24 Sep 2020 19:19:08
Gut the depth even more could do it.

A true studs’n’duds system would haves core of 3 forwards, 2 defensemen, and a goalie. All the rest are league minimum replacement level players.



04 Sep 2020 04:23:49
Freddy for Bean.

The exact deal I see in the works. both sides probably arguing value but Ina. Few months if it isn't done I'm sure it will come out it was close. Carolina is stacked at D and want Freddy.


1.) 04 Sep 2020 11:14:45
If it came down to one piece I’d still want our first back bean is a good player but we have a lot of his style of defence in the system already and it would allows us to maybe package pits 1st for something else.

2.) 04 Sep 2020 19:01:10
Don't think you get a first. I agree it's the better move but I'm assuming Carolina values w first higher as they are so stacked at D.



31 Aug 2020 01:39:32
Tor Marner

Ott Chabot

Thrown this one around a few times. Opinions are extremely split on value. I'm going to pose this again in the flat cap world. After Marner's bonus is paid the trade is one for one. I don't think they accept Nylander it would probably have to be Marner.

The cap hit means nothing to Ottawa as real dollars will be a struggle more than anything. Marner gets his bonus paid, Ottawa continues the rebuild with an exciting young forward. They reach cap floor very easily in this situation without paying huge real dollars.


1.) 31 Aug 2020 02:22:43
I honestly want to move both of them, nylander goes out for a casual skate to often, marner is just way over paid. So in conclusion I'd do this deal.

2.) 31 Aug 2020 03:01:54
Retain 2 million and throw in the first.

3.) 31 Aug 2020 03:08:46
He’s a great player but he’s a lefty.

4.) 31 Aug 2020 07:48:31
@Lwafsguy that he is but after this move it's all but done. You move on from Reilly and possibly Dermott. Saves 3m on the cap as well.

Retaining 2/ yr+ a first is a joke lol. Only hotwing thinks that's fair value.

5.) 31 Aug 2020 07:49:28
@Randy I agree. Marner showed his true colours in that series as well. He was also skating like a practice session. That's not what your paid close to 11 to do.

I like getzlaf. Even at his age he still has a lot to offer a team in different ways.

I would suggest making this part of a bigger deal as the salary is so high.

How do you know he doesn't want out? You don't. You aren't in his private conversations. One more piss poor year and he may ask.

If you think edm gets a better return than that your insane. They don't. As good as Mcdavid is that's about the upper echelon of trades. Top 10 defenceman, 90 point winger, Saros, Gabbro and THREE firsts. You think someone would offer 15 1sts? Maybe 20? Maybe package up their entire roster+AHL team?

It's the most fair trade for Mcdavid they will ever get. Probably closer to an overpay than an underpay.

So how many points does a Tavares, Mcdavid, Mathews line get? Lol. 200 for Mcdavid+80 goals for Mathews?

This is an epic 3 way deal. As good as Mcdavid is I have to believe both NSH and EDM are tempted.

I hate losing Reilly but man does this work out well. My favorite part is the retention going 2 different ways. It's the best way to convince someone.

Very true Craiggers. I can't blame him at all this year though. If your ineligible for Europe and only the NHL and AHL are open they miss an entire year of development.

Hard to say from where I sit RLF. He's definitely up there with the cheapest owners but he could stand to make some serious money if they can turn all these high end prospects into a couple of cup runs.

I'm not as much a fan of Holl as I am Dermott but, I agree on the point of who knows? Maybe Dermott is better at 2RHD than any of us imagined? But maybe he is much, much worse. I don't like the idea of trading or removing Holl until we see what Lehtonen and Dermott can do. As much as I like Bogosian he isn't a top 4 player.
