Toronto trades
Jarnkroc and Llyigren
Arizona for Josh Brown and 3rd in 2024





23 Sep 2023 14:37:06
Nylander playing 3rd line center is a very stupid idea.

Just solve the problem and make this trade,

Toronto trades Nylander, Robertson
Philadelphia for Scott Laughton and Travis Konecny

Bertuzzi Matthews Konecny
Domi Tavares Marner
Knies Laughton Jarnkroc
Gregor Kampf Reaves

Trade Timmons
Nashville for Lauzon

Rielly Lauzon
Brodie Klingberg
McCabe Llyigren


1.) 23 Sep 2023 14:52:58
In what world does Connor Timmins get you Lauzon?

2.) 24 Sep 2023 01:11:11
Have to admit I kind of like the deal with the Flyers.
A bit of an overpayment in some peoples view perhaps but works for the Leafs.
But does it work for the Flyers who are just starting their rebuild?

I would prefer to have Knies with Tavares and Marner rather than Domi.
As well Lafferty on the 4th line with Kampf and Gregor.

Reaves is an 8 - 9 minute per night energy player not a starter in the rotation.
He would be best replacing Wayne Simmons roll.

All things considered I would probably make this trade as well,



15 Sep 2023 00:43:28
How about this trade,

Toronto trades Nylander and Timmons
Philadelphia for Scott Laughton and Rasmus Ristolanen

Toronto trades Lafferty and Llyigren
Arizona for Josh Brown and 2nd in 2024


1.) 15 Sep 2023 06:01:13
Your Philadelphia trade is pretty good. I think you have 8 million combined coming back in salary for Nylander and we have some term left on each player

But the ARIZONA trade is pretty awful from the leafs side

Brown has good size so Toronto may want him but you can’t throw Liljegren in as part of this deal

Liljegren is under a lot of control and he will never be expensive going forward. In a pinch he could play on leafs second pairing

Arizona trade Brown

Leafs trade Jefferty and Steeves

That’s better Steeves may never be good enough to be a Center on leafs he is behind Holmberg and Kampf.

I do think Steeves could crack the lineup for Arizona now. So Steeves is a really good trade chip for Toronto and I expect leafs package him this year in a deal.

2.) 16 Sep 2023 00:18:15
Rasmus Ristolainen is a worse defenseman than Klingberg with an even worse contract.
Terrible trade!
Scott Lawton, though a good player is a 3rd line center.
For this Leafs trade an elite, 1st line, 40 goal, 87 point RW?
No thanks.

3.) 16 Sep 2023 12:11:30
My response and prediction,

Toronto makes it to Finals against Edmonton, game seven in overtime Conner Brown scores from Hyman because your 40goal boy doesn't back check, (like always) and we let both of these players go to keep this princess, good choice dumb ass!

Trade the Premidonna Nylander now and maybe Toronto wins the Cup, but we won't with this little prick!



10 Sep 2023 22:23:08
Let's make realistic trades,

Toronto trades Jarnkroc and Timmons
Arizona for Joshua Brown

Now a hopeful but probably not going to happen trade,

Toronto trades Nylander, Lafferty and Llyigren

New York Rangers for Lafarnie, Kakpo and Schneider


1.) 10 Sep 2023 23:51:08
Kakko, Lefreniere and Schneider are all admirable trade targets and would fit well on the Leafs.

I would prefer to keep Liljegren as Leafs are seriously lacking on the right side of their defense.
Schneider for Liljegren seems like a bit of a sideways move.

A Kakko, Schneider acquisition for Nylander plus one of Robertson or Niemala might be a better option.
Niemala replaces Schneider as a RHD for the Rangers. but is probably a year away from being ready for prime time.
Schneider is far more physical than Niemala something Leafs defense is seriously lacking.
Leafs might have to take back Barclay Goodrow’s contract to offset the Rangers cap constrictions.

Reilly - Schneider
Brodie - Liljegren
McCabe - Klingberg
Giordano - Timmins.

2.) 11 Sep 2023 12:15:58
What am I missing here with Josh brown sure he’s big but his numbers are of a 7/ 8 dman.

3.) 11 Sep 2023 14:28:04
I like your trade upgrading a defencemen and also trading a 20 goal scorer

To me it’s either Domi or Jarnknok needs to be traded

Leafs must utilize Robertson

I actually like Robertson on first line

Robertson Matthews Marner

As matthews and Marner can get the most juice out of Robertson

Second line I go

Knies Tavares Nylander

Third like

Domi. Holmberg Bertuzzi

My idea is to get three lines as balanced as you can then run 3 lines spiting the forth line as you need it

Reeves Kampf Lafferty

In camp Holmberg is going to show the Leafs he is better than Kampf.

4.) 11 Sep 2023 16:21:41
If we are trading Nylander, we're not taking back a bad contract to help that team out. We are close to cap hell ourselves. Nylander for a top defenceman or keep him.



06 Sep 2023 02:37:34
A simple trade Treliving could pull off

Toronto trades Jarnkroc and Llyigren
Arizona for Josh Brown and 2nd in 2024

If the Nylander to St.Louis trade doesn't go through how about this.

Toronto trades Nylander, Timmons
Chicago for Murphy and Raddyish and a 2nd and a 3rd in 2024


1.) 06 Sep 2023 11:32:49
So a 20 goal scorer and a young D with top 4 potential for a 29 year old average D? Nope. Pass .

2.) 06 Sep 2023 22:17:00
Bob 1965 sums this up
Liljegren is going to be a top 4 defencemen to start season

The defence is weak but they get some answers in camp

Like who surprises at camp
Timmins Niemela or someone else

Leafs can give there defence 30 games to see what they have

But it’s going to be fun watching leafs score goals

You don’t trade Jarnknok or Liljegren
Who is better between Robertson and Domi

And I think Holmberg gets third line over Kampf

Robertson Knies Holmberg are no longer AHL players.

3.) 07 Sep 2023 02:57:36
@Mackin. When was Knies an AHL player? Leafs are cap restraint and Holmberg and Robertson are waiver exempt. They are both likely to start in the A.

Treliving, I wish you would just trade the Premidonna Nylander to where ever, New York Rangers, New York Islanders, St. Louis, Colorado, Washington or Philadelphia.
Just get rid of the Cherry picker, no hitting, always changing to the bench when it is time to back check son of a bitch!

I know other people at this site feel the same way, so just get it done and fit our Defense with the trade!





26 Jun 2023 15:15:17
All of these reporters and editors write articles about how Toronto has no cap space and want players to come to Toronto and take a discount.

The idiots need to wake up and talk about the Four Bank robbers who use up half of the cap!

Toronto will go no where with this "Rotten Core Four".

If Treliving would grow a set of balls, (Shanahan Too!) And trade at lease two of them they could keep or build a Championship Team.

NYLANDER is not worth $9-10 million.
Toronto could trade him today to Philadelphia for Scott Laughton and Koocney, for $1 million more than what They pay the Cherry picker now!

They could also trade Matthews or Marner for Four or five players including draft picks and save money.

The mind set of these idiots is unfair to Leaf fans who pay the highest prices for tickets in the League.

So reporters and editors start writing about the truth of the problem in Toronto caused by a young inexperienced GM named DUBAS that thinks over paying Players with skill and desire to put their bodies on line and play hard to win is a good combination for success.

Three of the "Rotten Core Four" are afraid to get hit or give a hit because they might hurt themselves.

Toronto needs warriors that will battle, not splashy names that want all the money!

Please write about this for a change!


1.) 26 Jun 2023 21:37:29
Nylander is a 40 goal scorer who will put up 50/ 100 this year. He's worth that money to someone.

I agree on everything. I'm so tired of Leafs media.



08 May 2023 02:00:09
Let's see who gets the 1st 2nd and 3rd overall picks tomorrow and then trade, Matthews, Marner, Nylander and Rielly for a couple, because these four need to get out of town!


1.) 08 May 2023 03:23:05
Leave Rielly out of it. He's been the most consistent player in both series. He deserves no hate.



08 May 2023 01:57:46
So as I have said in many posts, this team would never win the cup with Nylander.

Again a scaredy cat to get hit and does not want to play defense in his end, always blowing the zone for a Cherrypickers goal.

Matthews and Marner don't give a dam about winning a cup, they got their money, like the wineing millenials that they are, and want to have the whole summer off.

If you think I am wrong then you are just not watching the game.
They are pissy because they get hit in the playoffs and can't make pretty plays.

They can all go Management and this core 4 bull crab.

Start a rebuild because after 5 years of these bums, fans deserve more for the money, with the highest ticket prices in the league.


1.) 08 May 2023 03:24:23
Throw JT in there. He's been bad for 9 games and counting.

Marner especially. If it wasn't for Leafs media, he's never even top 10 in selke voting.



14 Apr 2023 02:01:55
If Dubas and Keefe are smart, which I have a hard time believing, should sit Hellboy Hands Kerfoot and play Knies in the Tampa series.

The fourth line of,
Austin-Reese Kamp Lafferty
Is the way it should be.

First line
Jarnkrok Matthews Marner
Bunting Tavares Nylander
Knies O'Reilly Accarri

Kerfoot go eat popcorn!


1.) 14 Apr 2023 07:20:13
Kerfoot would have been sitting in his car listening to the game years ago, if Dubas was smart.

2.) 14 Apr 2023 18:30:32
Just my opinion. Kerfoot is an NHLer. He just isn't even close to a $3.5M player, not is he a top 6-9 forward. He is more a bottom 6 depending on which team he is on. I don't mind him on the team, I just can't stand how the Leafs management talk like he is another Hyman or something.

3.) 14 Apr 2023 21:19:50
@RLF that's my issue as well. He's a high end 4th line-low end 3rd line winger, who plays the PK.

Personally, I would have kept Engvall over Kerfoot, but wanted them both gone.

4.) 15 Apr 2023 02:05:59
So if/ when Dubas resigns. and he then resigns Kerfoot. cause you know he will. what number do we see that is acceptable for Kerfoot? . for the record. i am in camp get rid of him.

5.) 15 Apr 2023 02:54:32
I like that suggested lineup.

6.) 15 Apr 2023 04:07:20
@Loxley bottom 6 money. 1.5 to 2 aav tops. If it's anywhere more than that, he failed. Even 2m aav needs term.

RLF, I think that you are on the right track, but Lou doesn't like big trades.
He will wait till the last minute and then pull off a deal like three days before the season starts.

I think Lou wants Nylander but is struggling with the money,
In order for Lou to trade for Willy and maybe others for cap purposes he will have too.

That being said I believe that Lou will call Treliving and proposal this trade,

Toronto trades Nylander and Llyigren
New York Islanders for
Dobson, Walstrom, Pageau and a 2nd in 2025

I know we don't want Pageau so Toronto could flip him for picks
Just my thoughts.

Good then call Shanny and get rid of Fat Boy Keefe, please.

totally agree!

fat boy has to go!
he can't even figure out who should play with who after 82 games.

he is a ahl coach at best, it is the players winning the regular season games, not his coaching.

Holl on for 14 goals against!
What is Keefe thinking, Tampa knows he is the weakest link and put the puck in his corner everytime.
Hey Keefe maybe you should take your lame buddy out for a big Steak and a bottle of wine.

Dumb Coach, hoping they lose series so Ownership can clean house of Dubas, Keefe, Shanahan, Nylander, Holl and possibly Matthews.

The problem is they just don't know when to put the foot down on the throat of these persons.
Nylander is the problem and would have benched him with his stupid slur foot. He should use a shoulder to hit by he is a bum.
I am done with these losers.

Well I think this crap performance lyes directly on Keefe.
All his screwing around with the lines, this 11 and 7 bull and playing Hellboy Kerfoot instead of Kives.
Tampa out skates them because they were off to long and DOUGHNUT eating Coach didn't skate them hard enough and he doesn't enough know who should play with each other!

I coach is a bum and needs to pack up and leave.

Same old bull crap after the game by the players, WE HAVE TO TRY HARDER, THAT IS CRAP.
