A proposal if Samsonov is resigned.

Detroit Trades
3rd Round Pick 2025

Toronto Trades
1st Round Pick 2026

Leafs focus on getting a Top 2 younger Defenceman get's them that in a big way, yes it's a lot to give up but worth the price imo.

Red Wings in that still rebuilding mode and yes trading Seider would be something they wouldn't normally do, but getting that package replaces more than what they have currently.

Thoughts ?

Absolutely no chance unless Stevey Y is looking for a package when he's fired.

2.) 09 Apr 2024 17:23:36
I don't see that remotely moving the needle for Yzerman. It also terrifies me to have Samsonov as your lone #1. Woll could arguably win the job.

3.) 09 Apr 2024 18:46:46
Take out woll add in Cowan and another 1st.

4.) 09 Apr 2024 19:26:39
Wings laugh their asses off.

5.) 09 Apr 2024 20:46:16
@Randy I still don't see it. It's so difficult coming by a player like Seider.

Leafs life, I agree but he at least answers the phone to that proposal I think.

8.) 11 Apr 2024 13:11:28
Answers the phone to mock Treliving.

Toronto Trades
Akhtyamov (KHL)
1st Round Pick 2026 (Lottery Protected)

Washington Trades

*Caps retain 4 million of Carlson's remaining 2 years with an AAV of 2 million.

Leafs will be looking in the off season to get a solid two way defenseman imo, and Carlson checks all the boxes as well as being a veteran player.

Caps are an older team looking to get younger for the future, Carlson has been a top Defenceman for them but it's time to trade him for assets that help for the now and the future and this proposal does that imo.

Thoughts ?


1.) 06 Apr 2024 03:20:15
Carlson is 34 years old and primed for decline.
Giving up a 25 year old Liljegren, a 22 year old Robertson, Akhtyamov a good goaltending prospect plus a 1st round pick for a 34 year old defenseman seems like something Ferguson Jr, Burke or Nonis would do.

2.) 08 Apr 2024 14:51:35
Absolutely NOT. Lilygren straight up for Carlson may not even be worth it.

Islanders Trade
3rd Round Pick 2025

Leafs Trade
1st Round Pick 2026 (Lottery Protected)

Thoughts ?


1.) 03 Apr 2024 13:04:48
Islanders might. Pullock is now their #2RD. They have no cap space next year and lots of spots to fill. A solid deal imo. Pullock is a guy that I have thought would be a good target. I would imagine that the Isle would want picks and prospects mostly though as they need cap space.

2.) 03 Apr 2024 14:46:28
I don't think it's enough, but maybe not far off.

3.) 03 Apr 2024 18:06:28
I was very unimpressed with the trade which means it's probably realistic.



01 Apr 2024 16:12:25
At The Draft.

Toronto Trades
Grebyonkin (KHL)
1st Round Pick 2024

Washington Trades
3rd Round Pick 2024 (Bruins Pick)

Capitals in not a complete rebuild but retool to get younger will be on the table imo for next season, this type of trade proposal will do this, Carlson has been an outstanding Defenceman over the years for Washington but with his age and probably still having value this proposal makes sense.

Leafs will be focusing on improving Defense and Carlson gives them more offence on the Blueline, as well as veteran leadership, players like Edmundson and Lyubushkin are tough hitting Defencemen that I believe Toronto also tries to resign which will give a better balance for next season.

Thoughts ?


1.) 01 Apr 2024 18:18:05
As much as Carlson has been a great defenceman for a very long time now, he's showing his age a bit. This isn't a deal I'd do.

2.) 03 Apr 2024 02:40:19
I see this as a substantial overpayment.
Carlson is already 34 years old and recently played his 1,000th game.
His skills and ability will do nothing but deteriorate over the coming years.
Liljegren, Robertson, Grebyonkin and a 1st is a large portion of Leafs youth for a guy that has two or three left in his career.
Not something I would be happy to see Trevling do.

Arizona Trades

Toronto Trades
Villeneuve (AHL)

Thoughts ?


1.) 22 Mar 2024 09:16:27
Is Durzi who we had in the minors, couldn't crack the NHL roster and requested a trade? Seems odd to me to trade for him now.

2.) 24 Mar 2024 03:37:02
Durzi was sent to LA along with Grundstron and a 1st round pick for Jake Muzzin.
Never got the chance to play for the Leafs.

A Proposal that I don't see happening but if it did would either Team be even interested in doing it ?

Edmonton Traded

Toronto Trades

Thoughts ?


1.) 11 Jul 2020 18:43:42
I was posting stuff like this last summer, the consensus was mcdavid and lucic for marner and Matthews was a no go from Edmonton.

2.) 11 Jul 2020 21:05:50
Lol randy not surprised you posted that stuff last summer.

3.) 12 Jul 2020 19:39:52
I don't think either team would do this.

4.) 13 Jul 2020 14:53:26
Not enough for McD.



17 Aug 2018 15:16:21
Colorado Trades

Toronto Trades
1st Round Pick 2019

Solves the Top RHanded Defense for the Leafs.
Gives Colorado 2 NHL Caliber Players plus a 1st Round Pick.

Thoughts ?


1.) 17 Aug 2018 16:08:28
You would need to add a better player than Brown for Colorado to accept the large downgrade from Barrie to Carrick.
