TOR: William Nylander and Kasperi Kapanen

EDM: Evan Bouchard and Jesse Puljujarvi.


1.) 25 Aug 2020 06:34:25
Ed not trading bouchards.

2.) 25 Aug 2020 09:53:46
Bouchard will be traded before nylander is.

3.) 25 Aug 2020 09:53:57
Really Russian I’ve seen a few rumours that Edmonton is looking to trade Bouchard and a 2nd for Andersen.

4.) 25 Aug 2020 13:38:50
Just like blues were going to trade parayko for nylander. or thomad for patches.

5.) 25 Aug 2020 16:44:56
Bouchard is a good prospect. Much like the Leafs, Edmonton needs to start winning yesterday. Holland is going to need to start moving futures to find a way to make the team better before they lose McDavid to free agency. I know of at least one team that will abandon their entire future plans just to make a splash signing the biggest UFA to ever hit the market.

TOR: William Nylander and Travis Dermott

ANA: Rickard Rakell and Josh Manson.


1.) 22 Aug 2020 22:13:13
For the 1 millionth time. Manson sucks. He is worth a 3rd round pick at most. However to put this in your perspective.

Nylander >> Rackell
Dermott >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Manson.

2.) 22 Aug 2020 22:36:30
Does Manson actually suck though or you just think so? Does he suck to you because he doesn't put up attractive offensive numbers? Why does he "suck"?

3.) 23 Aug 2020 00:25:21
Corsi and fenwick both just over 45%

+/ - at -10

And as you mentioned his offensive numbers don’t make up for his lack of defence at all.

Really the only thing he can do is hit. You don’t pay 4 million dollars for that though.

There are much better younger, cheaper, and more controllable players the leafs can target. Also there is no excuse for being a bad player on a bad team because there are guys like Matt Roy and Brandon Montour who are much better and playing on bad teams as well.

2 words

Advanced stats.

5.) 23 Aug 2020 01:18:51
He fails the eye test
He fails the analytics test
And he fails the classic stats test.

6.) 23 Aug 2020 02:20:10
He sucks according to anybody with any knowledge of hockey lol. It isn't just him. He's rapidly declined over the past few years and will continue too. Even if Dubas got one season out of Manson it would be short lived. He can't skate, he's got no offensive presence, etc. He's just brutal in a lot of ways these days.

In what world do you even think q top line winger is worth an aging defenceman?

Marner won't be getting traded but with all this talk going around.

TOR: Mitchel Marner
NYR: 2019 2nd overall (Kappo Kakko), Brady Skjei.


1.) 20 Jun 2019 11:53:17
Your 1st statement was accurate. The media have created careers for themselves off the backs of Trade rumours and Toronto is the hub that pays them the most. I will always say the media in Toronto has to stop. Any word on Point in Tampa (who) or Tkachuk in Calgary (again, who) but a 3rd liner on the Leafs - Johnsson is getting more coverage.
The frenzy is so bad now that the media claims the entire league is waiting to see what Marner gets paid before their RFA's sign, unbelievable.

2.) 20 Jun 2019 12:05:57
Yup! It's all about Marner getting offer sheets. Yet, the Leafs are kn better cap position than the Lightning lol. Not to mention Point had a much better year than Marner, but he should sign for $9M and Marner $11 haha. The media is insane.

3.) 20 Jun 2019 16:52:05
The reason they say Point signs for less is because of the income taxes in Florida are so low. He will still net the same as Marner after tax.

I feel that’s an unfair advantage to teams located in the lower tax bracket areas. It allows teams to sign players for lower than what they are worth. I don’t know how the league can address that issue, but something should be done. That’s why Tampa is able to get guys like Stamkos for $8.5M or Gourde or Johnston for $5M. It lowers the pay scale and allows them to sign players cheaper, so they can get more quality players than a team in a high tax bracket area. It’s a loophole that teams can take advantage of. The league needs to index the salary cap to income taxes somehow. So a team in a 60% tax area gets $90M cap, while a team in 40% tax area gets an $80M salary cap. That would even things out and make it more fair.

4.) 20 Jun 2019 16:57:44
We don’t get paid, but we are all on this site doing the exact same thing you guys are complaining about. Talking about trade rumours is fun. And it gives you a lot more insight to the game off the ice. I know I’ve learned a lot of things since I’ve joined this site, instead of just reading articles and editorials. It makes you think more instead of just accepting someone else’s word.



11 Jun 2019 22:07:13
TOR: Nazem Kadri, Nikita Zaitsev

DAL: Radek Faksa, Julius Honka, 2019 first.


1.) 11 Jun 2019 22:36:27
I could almost see Dallas doing this. They can use Kadri. Honka is looking more and more like a bust. But at least he’s not Zaitsev. He might end up making the nhl in some sort of depth capacity one day. Faksa is an adequate replacement for Kadri and plays better defense. Might be asking for too much including the 1st, especially if we are dumping Zaitsev on them, but then again, who knows. We don’t have a 1st this year anymore, so would be nice to get back into that top round again.

If Dallas does this, I think it’s an easy yes for the Leafs.

2.) 11 Jun 2019 23:20:47
Boy these pro-Leaf posters are trying to peddle Kadri and Zaitzev to every team in the NHL with no success due to over valuing their worth. Soon they will try to unload these two overrated players to teams in the KHL.

3.) 12 Jun 2019 01:14:23
At least they got enough balls to put up a proposal and expose themselves to criticism from sideshow commentators that are too unimaginative to come up with something themselves. It’s a Leaf forum. What did you expect?

4.) 12 Jun 2019 01:26:44
The irony in your comment IslandJet is outstanding bye.

5.) 12 Jun 2019 03:37:20
You're complaining about pro-Leaf posters on a website called Leafs rumours. Sorta comes with the territory you've chosen to visit.

TOR: Zaitsev, Kadri
CBJ: Wennberg (1M retained), Josh Anderson

I'm going based on the fact that Wennberg was a healthy scratch throughout the playoffs and would be a cap dump for them. I personally like his game and it would be a cheap 3C at 3.9M AAV. He's also played really well with Willy on his wing for Sweden this tournament. They get Kadri who plays their style with term left on his contract and a very good AAV.

TOR: Johnsson, Marleau, 2020 2nd, Timashov, Borgman
ANA: Manson

Anaheim will be looking to rebuild, they'll be able to sign Johnsson to term and keep him for the future.
(Marleau would be bought out and San Jose would sign him to a 1 year, $1M contract)

TOR: Kapanen
CAR: Pesce

This trade just makes too much sense for me. Carolina needs scoring and the leafs need a cheap RHD.

Projected Lines:

Hyman (2.25)-Tavares (11)-Marner (10)
Mikheyev (.9)-Matthews (11.6)-Anderson (2)
Nylander (7)-Wennberg (3.9)-Bracco (.9)
Marchment (.8)-Gauthier (.7)-Moore (.8)
Petan (.75)

Rielly (5)-Manson (4.1)
Muzzin (4)-Pesce (4)
Rosen (.75)-Dermott (.9)
Holl (.7)

Anderson (5)
Sparks (.75)
Kessel (1.2)

Total Cap: (78.9)


1.) 26 May 2019 16:13:42
Marleau has a 35+ contract. So if he’s bought out, the full amount still counts against the cap. I can’t see Ducks being willing to do that. They don’t have a lot of cap space themselves. They can’t afford to take on over $6M in salary for a player who isn’t even going to be playing.

2.) 26 May 2019 16:33:03
Wennberg had an off year last year and moving to a new team is probably just what he needs. However that said, I would rather keep Kadri since he is a proven NHL center on a great contract. Also there are already a lot of bad contracts in Columbus (Dubinsky, Foligno to name a couple), so I don't think they will want Zaitsev.

Take out Johnsson in the Manson deal and flip Manson after for a cheaper option, then you have got yourself a deal. Also Marleau isn't going to waive his NMC to go to a rebuilder so I doubt this goes through anyway.

We cannot afford Pesce at the moment, but Kapanen for Pulock I would love to see.

3.) 26 May 2019 18:31:57
If Anaheim is looking to rebuild, it wouldn't take much to shed off salary to acquire future assets. I also mentioned that Marleau would be signing with San Jose after being bought out, he'd waive his NMC for it. You also say we cannot afford Pesce but I just showed our salary cap and we'd be way below it.

4.) 26 May 2019 19:06:19
Saying Wennberg had a down year last season is a little gentle. Lol. He did terrible, and was a healthy scratch in the playoffs. He had a bad year the session prior as well. It’s starting to become a trend.

Wennberg has all the signs of a player that needs a change of scenery. And since Zaitsev kinda falls into that category too, hey, it could be a good trade. We all want to get rid of Zaitsev. At this point I’d rather have the Leafs take a chance on Wennberg than keep Zaitsev. Losing Kadri hurts obviously, but that’s ok. Anderson is a damn good player and should be able to replace Kadri’s point production fairly evenly. And you got to love his size.

Roy is probably one of the guys I'm most keen on getting but it would be to play on the second pair. I don't think just getting him is enough to make a big change that we need. Roy and holl on the second and third pair is a really good start though.

What's the point of trading Kerfoot for a pick though? We're trying to contend. you can say that they'll use that as a piece to get a d man but I don't think the leafs would gamble like that. I think they'd be getting a player in return if they were to trade that third line.
