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.

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.

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.

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'm sure everyone heard the rumours by now that Engvall, Kerfoot, Johnson and Freddy are on the block. Looks like gutting the depth took a new meaning.

LeafsLife

1.) 26 Aug 2020 19:44:55
I think we all seen it coming

If Andersen is on the block, they should have tried to get a goalie from Pittsburgh.


2.) 26 Aug 2020 19:49:31
Dubas said the pick is up for grabs too.

Desperate GM's do desperate things.


3.) 26 Aug 2020 19:55:42
I think Dubas wants to try Campbell. I like Campbell as well but I'm not sure about a starter. We will see how it goes. One things for sure though, he can't start 60 games like Freddy facing 35 shots a night.


4.) 26 Aug 2020 20:21:49
Lol hokeyloser
If dubas does nothing you criticize him
If he makes trades you criticize him

Hokeyloser for gm.


5.) 26 Aug 2020 22:32:30
We will see how it turns out MPH. Maybe he signs Petro and makes a deep run. Maybe Lehtonen is the next Gordie Howe. Who knows?

More than anything I want Dubas vision to be the correct one. If another rebuild is in the near future it will be another 5 years before we even have hope again.


6.) 26 Aug 2020 22:58:28
I criticize Dubas because he keeps making the wrong moves MyPussysHairy.

Sorry that the GM you LOVE and the goalie you ADORE are NOT the saviours you wanted. Heaven forbid anyone actually question or criticize the GENIUS Dubas and the AMAZING Andersen. I'm sorry that your HEROES are being exposed for what they really are. If I'm HockeyLoser, what do you call a GM and a goalie that FAILED to make the PLAYOFFS, despite having the three highest paid players EVER on the team?


7.) 26 Aug 2020 23:19:13
Surprised the moderator let's that one slide lol.


8.) 27 Aug 2020 06:56:09
I think we’re all totally incapable of determining what qualifies as a good move considering we’re all armchair gm’s with no history in the league lol.

Tor Hollowell

Jets Laine

Well the way I see it they should be happy with this. Who wants a winger that can't play in his own zone, is overpaid, one trick pony, lazy and doesn't know how to win.

If anything they should probably throw in a few of their bums that can't seem to make the playoffs or are injury prone. Probably throw in Scheifle. Overpaid for a 30/ 70 guy for sure. They don't deserve 6-7 million per year right?

Thoughts?

Jets would have to retain salary for any team to even consider taking on any of their losers.

Ehlers is another one. In 25 playoff games he as 2 goals and 9 points. Just like Nylander, Ehlers disappears in the playoffs and is about as solid as a marshmallow.

Jets forwards just can't get the job done. When the crunch hits, they fold like a bad poker player.


2.) 13 Aug 2020 00:07:28
Try to deflect all the comments about the soft overpaid but generational Leaf posts but all it shows is you lack of faith in your own team.


3.) 13 Aug 2020 02:14:47
Your not wrong. I do have a lack of faith in this team as it's currently constructed just not for the reasons you always point out lol.


 

 

10 Aug 2020 05:47:22
Tor Marner, Kapanen, Johnson and Nylander

Ott Both picks, Tkachuk

Alright I'm on board now. Let's just tear it down. you overpaid dumpster fires summoned less than 10 goals in 5 games. Paid the way you are this cannot be allowed.

#FireDubas.

LeafsLife

1.) 10 Aug 2020 08:51:45
I’m good with this. I have been a big supporter of Anderson though he needs to go as well. The Tkachuk r exactly the type of players that play on championship teams.


2.) 10 Aug 2020 12:00:04
Calgary had no trouble eliminating a soft Jets team built very similar to our soft Leafs team, except with a better goalie.


3.) 10 Aug 2020 13:29:23
I mean the jets were devastated with injuries. But everybody wants To blow this team up like I did a couple months ago, everyone is blaming Andersen like I have been since the second playoff exit. Everything's coming up Randy.


4.) 10 Aug 2020 16:07:06
The Leafs don't have to blow up this team but the do have to trade 2 of their 4 over paid forwards. Unfortunately the return won't be a good as the Leafs hope due to these players cap hit in a flat cap era that may be 2/ 4 more years longer.


5.) 10 Aug 2020 19:32:47
Look as much as I HATE to say this but, I think we need to tear this down. When 4 guys eat up a pay roll that ain't budging for 3 or so years then yeah we got a problem. We need to rebuild around D and Goaltending. I don't know if Georgiev is the answer even if we get him. Defencemen that we need have to be gritty like sandpaper not QBs for the Powerplay. If we're lucky enough to get the 1st overall pick then try to move Nylander Marner or Tavares to lessen the payroll and get the D, Goaltenders and whatever else we need.

Out
Marner
Reilly
Kerfoot
Kapanen
Johanson
Fredrik Anderson
Tavares
Matthews

What ever they can fetch us to fill the holes then I say do it.

What about Barrie made you think that's a guy you need for 8 more years? That's the worst signing I have ever seen. Bring me Phaneuf back before Barrie.

Agree there craiggers. Funny the stigma around 1sts sometimes though isn't it? Last first to pick and 1st second to pick are essentially the same.

I still doubt it. If Makar gets something like 8x11 he will be younger with more term anyway. Even if he gets a bridge deal he expires an RFA Marner doesn't.
