Tor: kase, Robertson, holl

Van: miller,


1.) 19 May 2022 07:44:35
What possibly incentive does Van have to move a 100pt scoring power forward, for our leftovers? .

2.) 19 May 2022 17:09:57
Their not making the playoffs. Number 2 he only a rental at this point which should be a first a prospect and decent roster player.

3.) 19 May 2022 18:32:36
So you think he's worth a first, prospect and roster player, but other them a 7thD, 4th liner and a prospect?



15 Mar 2022 16:52:55
Tor: dermott

Van: motte

Simple trade.


1.) 15 Mar 2022 18:55:55
Seems fair. Doesn't look like the Leafs have plans for Dermott to use him regularly.

2.) 15 Mar 2022 22:50:45
I guess, not sure what this does but the value is probably fair.



28 Feb 2022 16:35:34
Go big or go home

Tor: sandin, abruzsee, 1st round pick

Ari: chycryn

Arizona gets a young top 4 lhd to replace chycryn who’s 2 years younger on last yr of elc plus a first and b prospext maybe adding dermott gets it done

Tor: liligren, topi 2nd round pick

Van: miller

Reilly- Brodie
Chycryn- lyb/ holl
Dermott-lyb/ holl

I may be over cap which can be fixed by trading a depth fwd or two and potentially upgrading dermott and holl.


1.) 28 Feb 2022 17:37:13
First trade i don’t see the leafs doing the second trade I would do but I think topi is to valued dubas to move.



16 Feb 2022 19:05:38
Tor: Robertson, dermott, kerfoot

Phi: konecny

Trade Ritchie and a pick for camp dump

Tor: holl, engvall, 5th round pick

Nyi: mayfield.


1.) 16 Feb 2022 22:45:36
Personally I’m lukewarm on all of these.

We haven’t really given Robertson a chance so for me it would need to be someone else that isn't an A prospect.

Ritchie can get the Leafs something back. No need to add a pick. Arizona, for example, has but 3 NHL forwards signed for next year. Heck bring back Travis Boyd @ $750k or Christian Fischer @$1m.

The third trade is one that I would do despite my ever-lasting hope that Engvall gets to be more consistent.



10 Feb 2022 14:40:32
Tor: amirov, holl, Ritchie, 4th round pick, engvall

Njd: bastian, severson

Only posting this because some people think severson sucks after playing us for 2 games.


1.) 10 Feb 2022 16:10:06
Too much. Take out Amirov. Severson is a cap dump.

2.) 10 Feb 2022 16:46:50
@Leafslife just curious why you are saying this is too much. I certainly don't see Seversson as a cap dump. if anything Ritchie is the bigger cap dump.

3.) 10 Feb 2022 17:57:54
@Loxley because we watched him for two games and he made some mistakes.

Who needs a guy that isn't perfect every second of everyday. Right Tanner? Lol.

4.) 10 Feb 2022 18:42:54
@Leafslife. oh ok. gotcha. sarcams. LOL. ya he gad 2 bad games cause he's playing 1st pairing minutes on a bad D, probly making those mental mistakes cause he is playing 2 much. i still want him for his puck moving. and if someone like Manson's style more i'd try to get Graves. cheaper cap hit and signed 1 more year.

5.) 10 Feb 2022 18:44:34
Fitzgerald says that he watched two games played by Ritchie, then two of Holl and two of Engvall and now wants 5 1sts added to make the deal work.

6.) 10 Feb 2022 22:45:54
@RLF lmao sounds right.

7.) 10 Feb 2022 23:37:16
@LL. Well Fitzgerald has seen the other 43 or so games of Severson this year. If he saw Holl's two worst, Ritchie's two worst and Engvall's two worst, shouldn't he ask for 5 1sts. lol.

Hot take: kase out for Wayne/ Clifford.


1.) 13 May 2022 12:54:40
I am more worried about one of Holl's indecisions or Nylander's lack of effort costing us the game, over Kase's limited 4th line minutes.
I think Keefe comes back with the same lineup.

2.) 13 May 2022 20:02:40
This series hasn't been a Maroon/ Clifford slugfest since game one. I don't think it makes a difference.

3.) 14 May 2022 02:43:42
So my thoughts are holl out for lily, even though holl hasn't looked all that bad.

4.) 14 May 2022 16:19:32
I think Holl was inserted originally because of all the penalties being called and Holl is a solid penalty killer. Then Keefe would use mostly 5D for 5 on 5 play. Last game, they stop calling penalties, so if game 7 is back to lots of penalties called, Holl would be the better choice imo. Of course, no one knows how the refs will decide to call things.



29 Jul 2021 02:03:59
After day one here’s some targets I would like to acquire

Nick Ritchie - guy hits hard is big and plays hard from the city

Mark jankowski- similar and big as well plays c

Via trade I would target crouse, Dvorak, rakell
With kerfoot engvall or mickeyav going the other way.


1.) 29 Jul 2021 03:19:20
I don't think enough is left to take on any of them unless Kerfoot is moved.

I also don't believe any team wants one year of Mikheyev or Engvall.



09 May 2021 19:42:15
Anyone else think the leafs let Freddie walk and run a Campbell Rittich tandem?

2 yrs around 1.5-2 mil.


1.) 09 May 2021 20:00:07
There’s got to be a better option than Rittich.

I think a tandem is the way to go. And it seems to be the way most teams are progressing.

I don’t care who they get to play with Campbell. I just hope it’s not Andersen or Hutchinson. And at this point, you can add Rittich to the list of disappointing goalies that just can’t get the job done when playing for our team.

Belfour was the last great goalie this team had.

That was so long ago that the fact he was a drunken wife beater had no effect on the love Leafs Nation had for this man.

He could stop a puck. And that was all that mattered.

Now the goalies we employ today have impeccable reputations.

Too bad they couldn’t stop a beach ball.

This is the worst goaltending I’ve seen since Toskala, Gustafson, and the rerun of Cujo were tending net.

2.) 09 May 2021 21:30:41
Mike Smith fits the Dubas formula of building a team

Take a player past his prime but whom was once a top end player for his position and whom has yet to win a cup.

Sell this player on Stanley cup potential then get him on the cheap.

If player is from Ontario it becomes a easier sell. not much to work with in this years ufa goalie group so smith it will be.

3.) 09 May 2021 21:49:52
Mid season goaltending trades can be interesting, some goalies struggle with identity issues and a change of scenery can sometimes destroy a goalies confidence.

Will rittich he better next year? I can't say, but he wasn't this bad in Calgary, he often stole games for them. I believe in this tandem still but I would only offer him one year.

4.) 09 May 2021 22:26:21
Hey man, Dougie had his issues as well but he's still the greatest leaf ever in my opinion.

We don't talk about Eddie's drinking lol.

5.) 10 May 2021 14:21:24
There are a lot of options out their I don’t think any of the three ufa goalies we have will be back unless they can’t find a guy but I’ve been preaching on bringing a guy like reimer back he was a favourite here for a number of years and would slot in perfectly with Campbell.



15 Mar 2021 17:58:58
Looks kinda bad that we pulled the goalie with 6 min left and played better than before. Maybe we don’t need a goalie lol.


1.) 16 Mar 2021 02:10:50
Same thing happened in the playoffs.

Good job Keefe for being so aggressive on the goalie pull.

2.) 16 Mar 2021 03:39:27
I've never seen a goalie put back in during play. And I grew up playing net so I watched for weird goalie stuff.

3.) 16 Mar 2021 11:45:58
Desperate times call for desperate measures.

4.) 16 Mar 2021 18:02:16
I have never seen a 6 30 goalie pull or mid play sending him back in either lol.

Keefe knew he needed to do something and what's the worst that can happen? I gave him a tonne of respect for that.

5.) 16 Mar 2021 23:33:07
The phili series years ago was something like that.



23 Feb 2021 05:20:53
Anyone else not so impressed with Reilly?


1.) 23 Feb 2021 07:00:40
He and Brodie both look kind of meh. Brodie is 100% better than Barrie and Ceci but that isn't saying much.

That pairing just has nothing when forced to play against top lines instead of Holl Muzzin.

2.) 23 Feb 2021 11:59:12
I think Reilly this year is too worried about scoring goals and jumping in the rush which leads to a lot of odd man rushes.

3.) 23 Feb 2021 14:19:03
I'm fine with Rielly. He has quietly put up 16 pts. Leafs are trying to play a different style of game, so I don't think we will see Rielly look as dynamic. Needs to still clean up his game a bit, but I am not worried about him.

4.) 23 Feb 2021 16:43:21
@RLF I think it's been how he's looked in his own zone coupled with him not scoring a tonne.

I haven't thought he looked horrible either, it's been more of an expectations issue.

5.) 23 Feb 2021 19:53:09
@LL. Yea, he has to clean up his play in his own zone a bit. I think it is a side affect of the style they are trying to play. Less run and gun. More structured. It can look boring at times and when I guy does make a mistake, it seems to really pop out because the mistakes are fewer than in a run and gun system.

6.) 24 Feb 2021 06:31:18
@RLF I can agree there. He is expected to play a bit more defensively than he is used too under Keefe. The one thing I question though is; why did he have his best season under Babs then? Hainsey couldn't possibly have been better than Brodie.

7.) 24 Feb 2021 12:55:02
@LL. I think sometimes we forget that the first couple of years under Babs, he made Rielly play D first. People were screaming to "free Morgan". Babs would just say that he wants him to learn the defensive side first.
Once Babs was comfortable with Rielly defensively, he took the reigns off and Morgan had a great season. I think part of that is other teams were not as prepared for Morgan that year as they are now, and on the Leafs, Morgan was so far and above most of our D, he stood out a lot more.
Plus, the rest of the team was more immature and not all bought into the system like they are now, so they were cheating on the offensive side of the puck and Morgan flies up with them already cheating and looks more dynamic because the others were thinking offence all of the time which had Morgan having to do more all over the ice. He doesn't have to do as much now, so he doesn't like as dynamic. We were more exciting then, but didn't win as much. To me, they are just buying in more as a team to what it takes to win even it that hurts personal numbers.

He is on pace this year for a pro-rated 67pt season. His best is the 72pt season. Pts are there, they are just a lot quieter.

I oddly agree with Randy however I’m not sure dubas is sold on Campbell as he hadent really played too much.

They are most likely going to make minor changes to 4th line I bet spezza comes back at league min Robertson can def take a spot next year and who knows about knies.
