Marner Liljegren Hildeby Robertson to preds

Saros lauzon novak 1st 2024 to leafs


1.) 21 May 2024 18:53:47
Sounds good.

2.) 23 May 2024 01:16:04
I am concerned about the potential for decline in Saros’s case.
He is only 5’11”, 180lbs in a league where most goaltenders are 6’5”+ and well over 200lbs.
Saros is a reflex goaltender who has played a huge number of games since Pekka Ronnie retired.
Jeremy Lauzon is an excellent 3rd pairing defenseman but Leafs biggest need is for a RHD to partner with Morgan Reilly.
Lyubushkin is not the answer.
Novak would make a good 3rd line center but it would be nice to see a player of higher end skills coming back for a top 5 right winger in the league.

The pieces all fit but do they move the needle?



20 May 2024 00:36:04
Seider to Leafs
Marner to Wings

Who says no?


1.) 20 May 2024 01:21:38
Wings say no. Emphatically.

2.) 20 May 2024 01:27:52
Wings pass.

3.) 20 May 2024 02:13:01
If only Yzerman would say yes!
But, of course, that will never happen.



19 May 2024 20:43:40
Rielly robertson Steeves to kraken
Wright 1st 2024 to leafs

Marner Liljegren to flyers
Konecny Frost to Leafs


1.) 19 May 2024 23:21:07
Second trade is great,

I really don't think moving Mo makes this team better though. He's never been in a position to succeed. He isn't Makar, Hughes, Josi, etc. He needs help, not shipped out.

2.) 20 May 2024 02:15:37
Seattle already has Vince Dunn.
I don’t think they want/ need Reilly.



18 May 2024 20:54:39

Got some cash to buy

Debrusk Matthews Necas
Knies Wright Nylander
Duclair Tavares Cowan
McMann Joshua Reaves

McCabe Larsson Pesce Carrier edmundson
Benoit Timmins

Brossoit Woll


1.) 19 May 2024 01:13:44
I like the Carolina deal.
If Carolina doesn’t intend to resign Brett Pesce (UFA) I would like to see his rights added to this deal so that the Leafs have the first shot at signing him.

That’s a strong lineup outside of Reaves whom I would like to see gone.
Unfortunately Dakota Joshua is an RFA and after his showing this year, particularly in the playoffs I would imagine Vancouver will do everything in their power to resign him.

I’m not a huge fan of resigning Edmundson though it would depend on the price.
If Edmundson wants in the vicinity of the $3.5M he was paid this year, then it is far too much to pay a bottom pairing defenseman.

Brossoit would be a terrific replacement for Samsonov and Duclair for Robertson.

2.) 19 May 2024 03:47:39
Dakoda is one hit wonder. but because the leafs traded him like 6 yrs ago. and did OK in the playoffs. we have to have him. and while we're at it. so we trade the best player a decent RD for a player that wants to be#1 and a 1st and second in 25.l.

3.) 19 May 2024 16:01:30
In what universe is Liljegren considered decent?
He can’t handle a forecheck, coughs up the puck at the most crucial times and puts himself constantly in positions of getting knocked on his rear end…if he was left handed he’d be in the echl….

Marner is a cream puff . he needs to go.

4.) 20 May 2024 01:31:06
Marner cream puff or not is a top ten player and top RW. night night.

5.) 20 May 2024 12:02:32
Yes and it’s all about the regular season
Because that’s what is winning you Lord Stanley right Calvo? ?.

6.) 20 May 2024 18:41:00
Hmm better tell cap friendly that Dakota Joshua is a RFA not a UFA

Once again water Buffalo spouts off without doing the homework….

Domi Matthews Marner
McMann Tavares Nylander
Knies Holmberg Cowan
Dewar Kampf Reaves

Rielly lyubushkin
McCabe Montour
Edmundson Liljegren





16 Mar 2024 08:37:11
D next year
Option 1
Rielly Josh brown
Zadorov Demelo
McCabe Liljegren

Option 2
Rielly Lyubushkin
McCabe Montour
Edmundson Liljegren

Option 3
Rielly Tanev
Dillon Josh Brown
McCabe Liljegren

Option 4
None of the above
MPH is not even close


1.) 16 Mar 2024 13:44:32
Brown can't play top pair. I think option 2 with either Tanev or Montour in that spot seems the most likely assuming Boosh and Edmundson want to come back and at less than what they were making.

2.) 16 Mar 2024 17:20:22
Option 5:
Leafs trade Nylander and Lily to NYR for K’andre Miller, Trochek and Goodrow

Off-season sign Roy around 5.5M and Desharnais at 1.5M

Rielly Roy
Miller McCabe
Benoit Desharnais.

3.) 16 Mar 2024 19:41:32
Clarky still crying about Nylander?
You do know it's not going to change a thing whether you keep crying everyday for the rest of the year or throughout his 8 year term.
Might as well just accept it.
I used to cry about Marner's outlandishly overpaid contract, but realized it wasn't changing anything, so I've moved on myself.
It's time to let it go brother!

4.) 17 Mar 2024 22:35:26
@Clarky why would NY agree to that trade? It's a fleecing.

5.) 18 Mar 2024 01:10:17
Yes Tags I’m making trades on what I’d think would make the team better. Didn’t say anything about Nylander just put him in a trade. Is it gonna happen? No obviously, just like 99% of the trades on here but everyone is putting their opinion on what changes this team needs to be a contender. And this is me dealing with it, looking for ways out of Tre’s mistakes (again) on a Leafs website is how I handle it. ?.

6.) 18 Mar 2024 10:34:58
Fair enough Clarky ?.



08 Mar 2024 23:12:43
Tavares Matthews Marner
Bertuzzi Domi Nylander
Knies Dewar Jarnkrok
McMann Kampf Reaves

Rielly Lyubushkin
Edmundston Liljegren
Brodie McCabe

Samsonov Woll


1.) 09 Mar 2024 00:39:18
Nice MPH but here is my formula for the lines:

Knies Matthews McMann
Bertuzzi JT Nylander
Jarnkrok Domi Marner
Dewar Kampf Reaves

Rielly Boosh
Benoit McCabe
Edmundson Lily
Brodie - file Brodie in to give other guys nights off.

2.) 09 Mar 2024 00:55:47
Not a fan of stacking that top line with JT as well.



23 Dec 2023 20:02:28
Ok so I'm not allowed to trade for Saros as per the genius JrA players and hockey scouts on this site.so I'll move on..

For good?

Have a merry Christmas!!!!


1.) 23 Dec 2023 22:28:22
Lol MPH. We'll see ya soon.

2.) 23 Dec 2023 22:30:05
Haha. Imagine letting these comments affect you this much. Can’t handle the negative feedback eh. Put your tail between your legs and walk out. ?.

3.) 24 Dec 2023 03:18:23
Geez, considering how many props I throw out on this site, if I left everytime someone disagreed with them, I would be around 500X by now is my guess. At least 300X just for the ones you disagreed with Mph. lol

Merry Christmas to you too. See ya in the New Year.



22 Dec 2023 01:00:39
Every time Buffalo comes over the blue line I think 50 50 chance a goal. That's how low I think of Samsievenov. He is moving way too much and therefore is out of position. Not square to the puck at all.

Waive him. Recall hildeby


1.) 22 Dec 2023 11:31:05
I wouldn't call up Hildebeast. Let him have at least a full year on the Marlies before doing that.

Sammy looks shaken. Not sure what can be done at this point to replace him unless, as you say, Hildebeast is called up though.

2.) 22 Dec 2023 12:46:59
It’s either bring up Hildebeast or pick up a goalie. Not fair to the team when you put this guy in net like that. Makes great saves and then lets in a pooper. That should be his last game as a Leaf. I get everyone is saying protect Hildeby but my question is from what? Getting a couple starts in the NHL as a back up while Woll is hurt. Give him a start or two while Woll is out, what are we protecting him from? Opportunity? If he has a bad outing, give him a chance to rebound but rarely the kid will get shell shocked with pucks because the team will play much better in front of him. They always protect their young goalies. A small sample size of tue NHL can’t do anything but help the kid. See how hard you have to work to make it to this level.

3.) 22 Dec 2023 15:21:02
At this point, send Sammy down and bring up Hildeby as a backup. As much as the team wants to support Samsonov, they know he is costing them games. The team stunk last night, but I don't think they would have stunk as bad if Samsonov wasn't so brutal. If someone claims him, so be it. Does anyone of us think Sammy is getting re-signed? I can't imagine anyone does, so if he goes now, he goes now and take the cap space. Even sending him down saves a little cap space with Hildeby called up. Woll played some NHL games as well before he was ready. In general, it is actually easier for the goalies when in the NHL than AHL because the play is way more predictable defensively.
Samsonov is a distraction. If he goes down, gets his game together, you call him back up later and send Hildeby back down. I think it would actually do Samsonov good to be away from the NHL pressure.

I said this a few time before and even at the time when Tree chose to take Sammy to arbitration, but Tree deserves credit for taking Sammy to arbitration and not bowing to pressure from the fan base to get Sammy signed to term. I didn't like the Klingberg signing or the term on Reaves, but his other moves have been solid.

Let's face it, Dubas would have signed Samsonov to $4M+ and with term. He was going to with Campbell as well, but got outbid.

4.) 22 Dec 2023 16:43:36
My only issue with calling the beast up is leafs have a tendency to not protect young goalies and have really poor showings.

I think sparks posted a shut out in his first game but got lit up for 6 or 7 by the oilers his next game. Kaskisuo they played awful for. Even woll they had a rough first game for him, he was just up to the pressure.

5.) 22 Dec 2023 19:12:33
Randy. I get that. My feeling is that playing Hildeby about 4 or 5 games until Woll gets back isn't likely to hurt his development. If he plays well, that's a massive bonus and if he is needed for the playoffs because of injury, he has some experience. Keeping Samsonov in the net, doesn't seem to benefit anyone. imo.

I think we could get more then:
A 3rd line Center
A bottom pair dman
A backup goalie
A 2nd round pick

I like the targets just not close enough to the ?.

Marchand will draw him into a punch after the whistle and will. Go down like a rock.

And bites his lip on purpose also to show there is blood

Nylander is a cream puff
Nylander Hildeby
Saros Lauzon.
