So I've been thinking about this a lot and still don't know if I like it. But

Tor: 2023 first, 2024 4th (becomes a first if leafs win the cup), robertson, kerfoot, Engvall, holl, SDA

Chi: kane, domi, Mitchell all 50% retained.

Leaf lineup (playoff)

Nylander matthews marner
domi Tavares kane
Bunting holmberg jarnkrok
Knies kampf Aston reese

Reilly brodie
Gio lily
Sandin Timmons

If muzzin comes back, added bonus but unexpected.

Alternate lineup choice

Bunting Matthews nylander
Jarnkrok Domi kane
Knies Tavares marner
Holmberg kampf Aston reese.

We don't give up that much unless we win the cup, we move our free agents to Chicago to flip again for more picks and prospects.

The only way I see a Chicago trade really working out.

After seeing Kane play tonight and granted it was one game but until his giveaway on the PP I had no idea he was playing. For a guy on the trade block knowing T. O are interested ya thik he might have stepped up his game tonight to show the leafs hay I still got something to offer here. Instead he showed the leafs hey Im not interested. OR he showed exaclty what he is now and that's not much. I dont think hes going to be the piece that puts this team on the path to planning the parade route.

2.) 16 Feb 2023 05:14:19
Muzzin coming back would kill this team.

Contract, He just plain sucks now. Sorry truth is truth. Man looks like he aged 10 years in 1 he had limited speed to begin with well now he has none.

3.) 16 Feb 2023 15:13:05
I liked Lafferty's play way more than Kane's.

4.) 17 Feb 2023 13:13:44
I think the Leafs should be looking at Dickinson, as I have mentioned him before. He is big, physical, can PK and has some skill. Left shot homeboy as well that will drop the mitts if necessary. He was always on the right side of the puck in that game. Could be a good 3C option. Especially if they can get the Hawks to retain as he is signed for next season as well. Even $500K retention and I think it would be worth it as long as the ask is not too big.

1.) 09 Feb 2023 21:17:56
Prolly need a mid pick but I like the kappy for kerfoot idea.

2.) 11 Feb 2023 05:37:39
Please no to Kapanen and Alex Nylander.

Engvall is a far better player than Puljajarvi.



03 Feb 2023 18:23:47
Tor: 2nd to chi, 4th to ari
Chi: domi 50% retained Arizona additional 50 percent

1.) 04 Feb 2023 02:02:27
We don't have a 2nd round pick.

2.) 04 Feb 2023 04:00:49
Until the defence is vastly improved upon this team will continue to falter.

3.) 04 Feb 2023 18:43:16
I don’t think nyquist will cost that much. could probably do like a 4th conditional depending on how many games he plays in the playoffs.

4.) 05 Feb 2023 02:35:43
Nyquist won’t cost much because he is not worth much!



29 Dec 2022 16:45:57
So this only really works if Seattle starts to fall off.

Tor: 2023 1st, kerfoot, holl

Sea: Eberle 50%, soucey

1.) 30 Nov 2022 22:58:48
Don't mind these moves.

2.) 01 Dec 2022 03:26:51
Kapanen has little value in my opinion.
Kapanen has been benched for numerous games this season.
In 14 games played, he has 1 goal - 4 assists - 5 points and is a -3.
He is no longer putting up points and is a far weaker defensive player than Kerfoot.

On the other hand I think Puljajarvi is a very interesting player and would offer Oilers Kerfoot for Puljajarvi.
I would like to see a Leaf 3rd line of
Engvall - Holmberg - Puljajarvi.

3.) 01 Dec 2022 14:46:07
So water Buffalo I essentially did what you said but also rid ourselves of Engvall in the process, bringing back kapanen. Also I think kapanen may have been misused in Pits. It's a buy low tactic.

4.) 01 Dec 2022 20:14:29
While a Kapanen for Kerfoot deal seems reasonable, Kapanen has been healthy scratched so much he has little to no value. Kapanen is also on the books for another year, while Kerfoot falls off.

If the Leafs had to pay up by dropping down 15 spots in the first round to move Mrazek, who was playing, then I'd say Pitt needs to up the anti A LOT more.

5.) 03 Dec 2022 04:13:32
Hi Randy.
I still think Kapanen has little value to offer the Leafs no matter who you trade for him.
I would prefer to keep Engvall than bring Kapanen on board.

Why are matthews and marner still playing together in ot?


1.) 04 Dec 2022 21:53:04
I hear your frustration.

Yes there was a giveaway but Murray whiffed big time.

2.) 04 Dec 2022 23:08:12
They tried it with Matthews nylander and jt and marner no one else keefe trust they just need to figure it out.



21 Nov 2022 19:23:58
Leaf lineup

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


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


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




20 Sep 2022 20:15:57
So why isn't Toronto trading sandin for a 1st and 4th?


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.


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.

I've always been a big fan of leivo. Felt he was never given the chance to succeed. Great release. The thing is AHL goalies are a lot easier to beat. But still would be a solid add.

So to me a give away is not just a pass give away but he will take poor shots that miss the net and ring around to the winger breaking out, he is often out manned for a puck resulting in a give away even if it isn't really his. Also marner felt like he had 3 a game for the first like 6 games so that could be where half of those come from.

Engvall still gives the puck away to much to play on that line I think.

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.
