Nucks: J. T Miller



1.) 07 Jul 2023 21:16:33
Vancouver doesn’t have cap space.

2.) 08 Jul 2023 00:31:22
Not a sound idea!

JT Miller is already 30 years old and tied into an 8 year contract that is not going to age well.
In addition, Miller has shown himself to have some character issues in Canucks dressing room.

Leafs: Nylander, Robertson, brodie

Preds: Josi, trenin.


1.) 04 Jul 2023 04:06:29
I wish.



03 Jul 2023 12:52:17
Leafs: Nylander

Caps: Wilson, Oshie (retained 50%)


1.) 04 Jul 2023 01:40:41
Wilson is an aging (closing in on 30) power forward whose body is starting to break down.
Injuries are becoming a prevalent aspect of his career path.



27 Jun 2023 13:23:37
Leafs: Nylander

CBJ: 3rd overall

Draft michkov

Sign barbeshev, ROR, Orlov, schenn acari

3 years time michkov will be a stud, JT’s cap is off the books.


1.) 27 Jun 2023 14:17:41
I think this is the best trade for both teams.

2.) 27 Jun 2023 14:37:15
I doubt the Leafs get any top 10 pick for Willy unless there is an extension involved. No team is going to give up a top 10 pick for 1 year of a player.

3.) 27 Jun 2023 14:50:00
Interesting . Big win if Michkov works out.

4.) 27 Jun 2023 15:51:47
I think if Columbus gives up the 3rd, it would be for a #1C, not a top end winger like Nylander.
I could see the #3 going to Calgary for Lindholm, who gets reunited with Gaudreau.

5.) 27 Jun 2023 18:50:53
This is the same team that signed Johnny hockey to that contract roflmao.

6.) 28 Jun 2023 02:26:22
Columbus is not looking for another winger.
What they are looking for is their future 1st line center.
In this draft, after Bedard are Fantilli, Carlsson and Will Smith all of whom have the potential to fill the need in Columbus.



26 Jun 2023 15:37:55
STL: Paryako, Schenn (both 25% retained)

TOR: Nylander.


1.) 28 Jun 2023 02:35:26
Partake is 30 and has had two, very poor years in a row.
I am up for trading Nylander to upgrade the defense.
I just don’t see Parayako as an upgrade.
Brett Pesce would be a far better target for the Leafs.

Leafs need to make a few strong trades

Toews/ o’reilly, Course, Jeannot, Paryako would be my targets.


1.) 18 Feb 2023 05:47:52
Dubas was listening apparently.



05 Nov 2020 02:02:53
I’ve been on this site for a while, more than most. I don’t post often but this is one of the better proposals i’ve seen. I hate loosing marner. Arguably our best player, but its makes us stronger now and in the long run.




23 Jan 2018 03:08:01
The leafs need to stick to the plan and continue the rebuild. I've watched every game this year and they are still not ready for a deep playoff run.

Stock the pool,
JVR - To anyone that will pay 1st and a 2nd.
Bozak - To the pens 1st rnd pick (if Reeves can demand a 1st rounder so can bozie)
Gardiner - trade him in the Off season, easily get a first rounder and maybe more
Komarov - 2nd rounder

This will put us at the bottom of the league but it will help in the long run.
I don’t see these guys helping us get to the Cup finals. If we can get 3 future first rounders and 2 2nd rounders we will be laughing in 3/ 4 years.




04 May 2017 11:55:07
NYI: Pulock, 1st (15th) 2017,
Could add in a 2nd round 2018

(Del Cole has not been developing like the islanders want and they wasted a high pick on him. I feel they would ask too much for him. He was taken 5th overall and he's not even ranked in the top 30th of his draft year)

Leafs: JVR, Dermott or Tobias Lindberg

Draft targets for the 15th
- Cal Foot (ranked 18th)
- Nic Hague (ranked 14th could be picked in top 10 because of his size)
- Cale Makar
- Eeli Tolvanen (was ranked 8th but slipping because of his size, TSN said he could slip to 18th)
- Timothy Lijigren (ranked 12th right now) he could slip like chychrun

I like this draft year, there is a lot of hidden talent. We could come out like bandits if we could get NYI's pick. Plus we would still have our 17th round pick. This would bolster our defence for the future. Our only weak area would be Leftwing. Islanders could actually consider this to help JT sign long term.

I just want next season to start already!


1.) 05 May 2017 13:58:30
JVR gets at minimum, Pulock, the 1st and another prospect.

Anything less than that is just undervaluing JVR. Pulock is not that good, the 1st is a 15th (long after the quality players are gone) and even if you add the 2nd which would make this deal similar to Hanzal's (a 3rd/ 4th line center) JVR is much better than Hanzal.

It's still not enough. JVR is a 1st line LW on any team.

2.) 05 May 2017 17:47:54
You are right. JVR is worth more, It's hard to gauge how clubs value their prospect's. I can see JVR playing with the islanders.

(BARZEL could be untouchable in NYI eyes but could we pry him away? )

Islanders: Barzel, Anthony Beauvillier (LW), 1st 2017

Leafs: JVR, Jeremy Bracco.

We are loaded on the RW.
Needs: LW prospects, centre prospects, and 1# RHD. We will defiantly have to draft if we want a top D.



26 Dec 2016 05:09:53
Reading a lot of Cam Fowler proposal's.
we need a RHD and hes. LHD.
Plus his contract is up 2017-2018. same time as JVR's.
$6-7m+ season to resign

He’s being called up to get comfortable with the practices, game day routines, ect. Sheldon explains it all during post practice interview today.

It's hard to let him walk for nothing, but it's also hard to sign him @6M/ AVV.
If you look at the most productive lines in the NHL last season,


JVR BOZAK MARNER ranked 1st In goals for and 1st for goals against.

I'd say trade him for a 1st round pick and a 2nd Round pick.
