Don't mind these moves.

Tor: Nylander, holl
Cgy: weegar, dube, 2023 1st top 3 protected.

Randy

1.) 14 Nov 2022 14:01:12
I can't imagine Cgy agreeing to this deal. Weegar just re-signed and is a top 4 D that can play either side + Dube a top 9 forward and a 1st for Nylander and a bottom pair pending UFA D? Doesn't seem like enough given from Toronto.


2.) 14 Nov 2022 14:52:44
My thoughts are, they are struggling, weegar has been sub par this year, as has dube. Nylander is by far the best player in the deal. Hence the added first. We can send them sandin instead if that moves the needle, but I don't do the deal without a first or high end prospect coming back. Would also consider rudzicka.


3.) 15 Nov 2022 00:45:16
Rudzicka is not going anywhere!

Nylander bringing back Weegar, Dube and a 1st is a pipe dream.

Tor: Murray 2023 1st
Ari: vejmelka 2023 3rd

Since everybody is super mad at the team let's try this again.

Total team sell off.

Tor: Reilly, kerfoot
Van: OEL, garland, 2023 24 and 25 first. Can protect and one of them if top ten to push it to 2026

Tor: matthews
Ari: 23,24,25 first second and third round picks.

Tor: Nylander 15% retained, bunting
Cgy: lucic 2023 1st 2024 1st, rudzicka,

Tor: marner
Ana: 2023 first.

Tor: Brodie
Contender: 1st

Tor: Tavares
Buf: skinner 23 1st, 24 2nd.

Any other leafs people want not named robertson for picks and prospects.


Leaves you with a very barebones team this year to go after Bedard.

You have a tough guy on each line to protect the kids. Lucic, simmonds, Clifford, Gabriel.

You have a small skilled guy on each line, robertson, malgin, Mcmann, abruzze

And then the rest, kampf, garland, jarnkrok, sleeves

So I guess in practice this would look like

Robertson Gabriel garland
Lucic kampf malgin
Simmonds jarnkrok abruzze
Clifford mcmann steeves

Should be good enough for last in the league because they can't score. But nobody will enjoy playing the leafs.

You forgot "Dubas for future considerations"


2.) 31 Oct 2022 21:15:50
So how do you expect to hit the cap minimum with all that money moving out. This are very unrealistic.


3.) 31 Oct 2022 21:52:49
You hit the floor by taking bad contracts for picks. Do a hard reset. Offer subban a one year deal for 16.5 million.


4.) 31 Oct 2022 22:38:26
Hitting the cap floor is easy. Just do what the Yotes do. Take on every bad contract in the league for picks.


5.) 01 Nov 2022 11:11:25
Dubas is the main issue here. He failed to address the two major issues with this team because he wanted to show he believes in his guys. He is too buddy buddy with anyone making more than $3M. He should have moved Kerfoot for one and addressed the D situation while trying to find a harder nosed player that could possible gel in the top 6. Finding an underutilized player that was cheaper like he did with Bunting and how Hyman came along.
Then there is Keefe. Why not try ZAR or NAB with Tavares and Willy? How could it have hurt since that is what Dubas added to the team.


 

 

04 Oct 2022 00:55:58
K trade kerfoot for picks or prospects or a bag of pucks or whatever.

Send simmonds and Clifford now.

Bunting matthews marner
Robertson Tavares/jarnkrok nylander
Malgin jarnkrok/kampf Engvall
Aubekubel kampf/Douglas Aston-reese

Muzzin Reilly
Sandin brodie
Gio lily/mete I guess

Murray 1a playing 45
Samsonov 1b playing 37

Randy

1.) 04 Oct 2022 13:19:16
Oh haha I forgot holl. Do holl instead of mete. Keep holl as 7 dman for when gio needs a break or injuries.

Leaf lineup

Jarnkrok matthews marner
Bunting Tavares nylander
Kerfoot kampf Aston-reese
Robertson holmberg malgin

Reasoning

Lines 1 and 3 play lines 1 and 2 from other teams.
Line 2 and 4 play lines 3 and 4 from other teams.

Line 1

can play defensive and offensive really well jarkrok will open a lot on matthews line

Line 2

Very strong offensive line

Line 3

Gets every defensive zone start you don't want to give to matthews

Line 4

Mainly plays offensive zone starts against lower skilled opponents. You let them play their game and hopefully in 2 or 3 years you have a second line instead of a fourth.

You sit engvall

Randy

1.) 21 Nov 2022 20:34:01
I have recently read that Jarnkrok is not his best on LW so it may be preferable to keep him on RW.

So leave Willy with Matthews (they seem to be clicking) and put Willie on LW where he is comfortable. I also wonder if Jarnkrok can be a top6 with the Leafs. He does have a wicked wrist shot.

Sorry but Engval won't be coming out due to his strong PK ability.


2.) 21 Nov 2022 23:15:35
If I seem him turn the luck over one more time in the neutral zone doing a little backhand pass on the pk, I make break my tv. I don't find him to be good on the penalty kill. I honestly think with a bit of practice Robertson could be a good pk guy. He has a ridiculous motor, will just keep going and going, that aggressiveness on the pk is a good trait.

Also jarnkrok marner kerfoot Aston Reese kampf

Engvall isn't needed.


 

 

25 Sep 2022 22:44:24
So I know it was one preseason game, but what about trying

Bunting matthews jarkrok
Nylander Tavares marner
Engvall kampf kerfoot
Simmonds ? Aston Reese

I wasn't a fan of gaudette, he looked slow. Malgin looked good, maybe move kampf down kerfoot to centre and margin on the wing

So why isn't Toronto trading sandin for a 1st and 4th?

Randy

1.) 20 Sep 2022 23:22:51
Very similar situation. I would make that trade if I'm Dubas, but isn't Lundquist a RHD? Probably a bit more value.


 

 

21 Jul 2022 13:56:13
So funny, I tried to trade kerfoot a first and sandin for Tkachuk last year after his bad year, and everyone said it was an over payment. Now it's Nylander in place of sandin and that's still not enough.

Randy

1.) 22 Jul 2022 11:43:29
Yes. I recall that. Kudos

Hope Calgary gets some solid assets for him

I have a friend (yes surprisingly I have some people who tolerate me?) in Calgary and so
Many fans are pissed at Jonny hockey for leaving
I’m still shocked he signed with The jackets!


2.) 23 Jul 2022 13:48:00
Such a strange place to take less for.

Value changes. Someone will pay more than Matty is worth. Remember Jason Blake?

I don't actually think Chuck is all we're calling him right now. He's a 9m winger (same as Marner) .

Idk why everyone is in such a hurry to trade niemela. He is by far our best defensive prospect, and just because he is playing over seas and we don't see him all that often, doesn't mean he should be traded. Everyone says knies and robertson are our untouchable up and comers, I argue it should be niemela.

Why would Columbus give that up? I don't see any of that package that is worth a first never mind the rest of it.

My take on sandin

Might be to slow to make it as an nhl defenseman long term. Especially considering is zoning isn't great. He could learn a few things from geo about being slow and effective.

Sandin is calm and patient with the puck. This has burned him with a few giveaways but I think if he learns when urgency is important it can be a really good trait.

Everybody calls sandin soft, he lays the body a lot, especially for a swede, this is one of the often overused stories about sandin that I don't understand.

I tried to say put him with marner and matthews when they were back together, everyone just said he isn't comfortable on the left.

Jeanot does 3 things, hit fight and score. In what way does that not cost you a lot?
