Tor: Johnson/ kappy, Liljegren

Nyi: pulock

Just a thought pulock is a solid rhd and young at age 25 islanders get a good rhd prospect to replace old man mquaid and kappy or Johnson helps boost their offense.


1.) 05 Jun 2020 03:01:56
I wouldn't include Liljegren. NYI have Dobson and Wilde already anyway. He would actually have a better chance with us. I think Islanders are weak LHD though. They have Toews, but he's really the best they have. Leddy hasn't been all that impressive lately. Maybe instead of Liljegren they could take Dermott and throw us a pick to balance or something like that.

I like the idea though. It's a straightforward no nonsense makes a helluva lot of sense trade. And I would love to see Dubas do something like this.

2.) 05 Jun 2020 04:11:22
I don't think pulock will be affordable. Dubas has himself a serious mess right now. So much of what saved him this year was LTIR. that's all disappearing now. I don't see any big name signings or trades even ones like this unless a large contract moves out.

3.) 05 Jun 2020 09:17:35
Would take a lot to pry him away from Lou but not bad target.

4.) 05 Jun 2020 17:05:42
I know he needs an extension and I’m aware dubas is a pussy when it comes to negotiations could we sign pulock imo under 5m per year.

5.) 05 Jun 2020 19:34:21
Dubas biggest issue is how much he gave out already. Anyone looking at those deals will be thinking "I'm almost as good as Marner why can't I get 9m? "

6.) 05 Jun 2020 21:42:39
NHL salaries in average right now tend toward about $1M per 10 points. So using that standard, and using Marners best season at just over 90 points, then Marner is at least $2.5M-$3M overpay. Using a comparison to peers though, it would seem that he could be even more overpaid, as some of his comparable players signed for less than $8M.

How Dubas thinks he can explain to someone that they deserve only $5M for scoring 25-30 goals and 60-70 points (I'm thinking Hyman here) while Marner earns over twice that is beyond me. And how does he expect to sign any free agents knowing, and he absolutely has to know, that anyone sitting down across the table from him is going to throw those MMT deals in his face.

Just because a player is elite doesn't mean we should overpay for him. And just because a player is not elite doesn't mean we should earn league minimum. Dubas' doesn't think a middle class exists in hockey. It's either you're a star or you're a bust. How much resentment is on the team right now as everyone else is getting paid cheap while the Fantastic Four are receiving all the rewards? I have a feeling that the skew in salaries is going to create some bad blood in the dressing room.

7.) 06 Jun 2020 00:49:52
The bad blood is already there I'm sure. Reilly is the rightful captain and was passed over now will be asked to take a discount. No way he stays.

8.) 06 Jun 2020 02:55:17
I think you might be right about that. Unfortunately.

Maybe the reason Dubas didn't name Reilly captain is because he didn't think he could re-sign him?

Due to buffalo’s surplus of rhd and needing for scoring how about this

Buffalo: miller

Toronto: Johnson

I think buffalo is desperate and this could make their team better but I’m not to sure about Colin Miller just a thought tho.


1.) 03 Jun 2020 23:31:10
That's actually not a bad suggestion, though some may argue that Johnsson is worth more than Miller. Considering what buffalo paid for Miller, getting a roster player back in return, especially a decent one like Johnsson, could be an overpay.

On the other hand, Johnsson was hurt a lot last year and didn't play all the greatest even when he was on ice. So his value is lowest it will get.

I think Johnsson still has potential to be a 20g/ 40pt player again, whereas we know Miller ain't getting any better. Advantage goes to Buffalo.

2.) 03 Jun 2020 23:46:57
Nah he’s 27 had one good year in Vegas his first year like a lot of them on that team
So no thanks.

3.) 04 Jun 2020 02:32:27
Steroids will do that to a fella. I bet the whole damn team was on them. Two of them got caught. Not the golden year, but the following. I find it very hard to believe that all those never wases and has beens were able to put together a miracle year like that unless there was something going on behind the scenes. I'm not talking a conspiracy theory where it was rigged by the league (although that really isn't that much of a conspiracy), but something more simple. Like the whole damn team being juiced up on 'roids.

Remember when Bryan Brerard got caught by the IOC for having steroid in his system and wasn't allowed to play in the Olympics, but the NHL didn't test him, so he was still allowed to play NHL. That's more like the nefarious type situation I imagine over their golden inauguration.

4.) 04 Jun 2020 04:14:57
It’s a fair prop though I am not a fan of Miller, rather get a good defensive dman.

Sign Galchenyuk for 3rd line centre

3rd round pick*



1.) 27 May 2020 06:07:24
No chance in hell Klingberg is sent over here for that package.

Is duclair better than Johnson? No idea but it has to be close. Duclair is a 2 time 20 goal scorer who has had injury problems. I would make the trade if he was still on ELC but he isn't. Based on what Pageau went for Duclair would probably go for more but I wouldn't pay it.

2.) 27 May 2020 06:14:07
I wish.

3.) 27 May 2020 12:38:21
Might have a better chance with Kapanen, Dermont, engvall for klingberg.

4.) 27 May 2020 18:27:20
I would prefer to send a team Kerfoot than Kappy. Realistically though most other teams would feel the same and want Kapanen. He is a solid middle-top 6 guy that kills penalties and has shown some grit. Would hate to lose him but Klingberg would immediately boost the D corps to an elite level.

5.) 27 May 2020 23:24:28
I would rather not have Galchenyuk for 3C. Lol. I would rather run Engvall there. He'll, I'd rather run Liljegren there.

6.) 28 May 2020 04:52:14
I don't mind signing galchenyuk and giving him a one or 2 year minimum deal to prove himself if he's willing. I wouldn't be trying to put him anywhere other than bottom of the depth chart at first though.



26 May 2020 23:22:06
Dal- Klingberg

Tor- Liljegren, Kapanen/ Kerfoot, Dermott And 2nd round pick.

Sign galechenuk for 3 line centre

Move Johnson plus for Duclair

Move Kerfoot/ Kapanen to top 6 whichever isn’t traded.




11 Apr 2020 21:45:05
Risto was rumoured to be moved and I think dubas is going to grade for him he’s a big body on the right side who is also very skilled. I think his value isn’t as high as it used to be

Risto + Thompson


Johnson+ 4th round pick+ Dermott.


1.) 12 Apr 2020 01:28:18
Rather have Dermott and Johnsson, if I am trading for a dman I want a top 4 defensive dman not another dman who is a liability in there own end.

2.) 12 Apr 2020 08:35:44
Barrie 2.0

If you thought Barrie was a defensive liability, you will be even more frustrated with Ristolainen. He's a good player, sure. But there's a reason why Buffalo wants to trade him. Normally I don't like to point to +/ - because so many people consider it a "flawed" stat. But when you have such a brutal +/ - that is consistently deep in the red, it gives a pretty good indication that something ain't right.

Ristolainen is a good player, but I'm not sold on him. I think he would come to Toronto and perform exactly like Barrie did.

I agree as well it seems when kappy popped up on the rumour mill as a potential trade bait he had a lot more jump in his game he’s a grinder yet he scores (he hits a lot has a little fire under his ass) I think we need to keep him at all costs although I am aware of how much value he could have to another team I think he has a great role in Toronto I would love to see him play up with Tavares and marner.
