Very simply

TOR Oleksiak
DAL 4th '21

TOR Dell
NJD 4th '22

TOR Iafallo
LAK 3rd '22, Hallander, Brooks

Iafallo I like but as much as I want Foligno, feeling is he is going to cost too much. Rather have Iafallo who gives you more balance, granted not overly sexy, compared to Taylor Hall who is one dimensional. Playoff hockey is not run and gun.

Not interested in trading Robertson, Amirov or Sandin even in this year's run

Can try to recoup picks in offseason

To those trying to trade Nylander by tomorrow, it's not happening. Maybe in offseason. Can get back younger talent and picks then. Dubas going with this core for one more run

Just think Leafs need depth at all positions not big names

Dell, Oleksiak, Nash and Iafallo do this

If they can acquire even one more cheap depth foward with this group then I think they've done well.

To add to my post of Foligno trade,

CBJ gets cost certainty of Kerfoot for fwo more years after this and Engvall for one more year. Important for CBJ as UFAs aren't exactly running to go play for them

I know they would be trading g their captain but he is pe di g UFA.

Steve Simmons wrote today he keeps hearing Nick Foligno's name coming up. Perfect type of forward Leafs need. Tough, in your face, playoff battle tested. Let's go with it

TOR Foligno
CBJ Kerfoot, Engvall, Boyd

Have to put Boyd in there to make numbers work.

Net effect is Leafs take on $500,000 more. Would need to make minor move to open up some cap space.

PHI Kapanen RW
TOR Sanheim D

-both 23
-Kapanen 3.2 for two more years
-Sanheim 3.25 for one more year

I know Sanheim is not right shooting but does it matter now?

Dumba makes too much and would cost too much. Do not see NYR trading DeAngelo. Both are right shooting but do not see either of those two coming to TOR.

Kapanen has more value than Sanheim, so if PHA adds a 2nd then ok.

If I am reading this right from capfriendly, Leafs ONLY have 3.8 MIL in space. Add Horton with 5.3 MIL you have 9.1 MIL. Still not enough to sign Greedy Mitchy.

So Dubas is going to have to trade Kessel 1.2 MIL to free up space taking nothing back. Now 10.3 MIL. Even if they pay Greedy 10.0 MIL then next to no excess left.

Only player on roster now who they can send down who is on two way contract is Goat which saves another .675K. Now having approx 2.175 MIL ( .300 + .675 + 1.2). Depth guys they signed Agostino, Shore, Gravel even Holl are all on one way contracts. All in the .675-.750K range which counts on cap as one way contracts.

TOR 5th '20
COL 3rd '20 (CBJ) Kessel 1.2 MIL

COL with 27.1 MIL in cap space. They obviously need to sign Rantanen and Zadorov as big names.

This would leave Leafs with 3.375 MIL in space assuming no other moves.

Not sexy trade but cost of doing business.

I think my math is right.

What makes you believe that retained salary is a tradeable asset?

2.) 05 Jul 2019 02:36:51
They will send down some contracts to the Marlies after training camp. That will open up probably another $1.5M or so.

Btw - you can not trade the cap hit from Kessel.

3.) 05 Jul 2019 04:02:51
Dubas is going to trade Kessel’s $1.2M. That’s a great idea. I love it. I didn’t even know you could trade retained salary. I never heard of such a thing before. I honestly don’t know if you’re math is right. I tried following it, but got lost. If it’s allowable to trade retained salary, then Leafs should absolutely go ahead with this proposal if it ever becomes a viable option. It’s a fantastic idea. It really is. I love it.

4.) 05 Jul 2019 04:12:24
Can't trade retained salary.

5.) 05 Jul 2019 04:40:02
You know what would have been nice? If we could have got Zadorov for the right price too. Gravel, Harpur, Marincin, Holl would pretty much equal Zadorov salary. Or Ceci alone would do it. I mean, for the same price, who would you rather have, Zadorov? Or any of those other hacks?

6.) 05 Jul 2019 12:02:35
My math isn't right. I'm sure some of you have caught it. I double-dipped on Kessel.

The 3.375 I stated they had is wrong. Take 1.2 away for double-dipping and you are back at 2.175 as stated before.

They can and will trade Sparks .750K for 7th to someone and then they now will have 2.925 remaining cap space.

Will have full roster but could use another depth dman. Not sure Gravel plays much. More of a Marlie guy. Why was Marincin resigned?

7.) 05 Jul 2019 12:52:57
The Leafs have at least available $9.5M available and that does not include LTIR for Dermott and Hyman who will also begin the season on IR.

You know Leafs don't have their own 3rd?

Check your numbers before you post.

Unbelievably unnecessary proposal

Laine is already approaching category of feast or famine if not already there

I get Dubois hasn't lit it for Winnipeg but I would make the same trade over and over again if I'm Winnipeg

Laine is a waste of space

Why do people think Leafs need major surgery?

Wouldn't touch pouty Jack with ten foot pole

Pouty Jack has had a bee in his butt since he was drafted thinking he should have been first overall ahead of McDavid and he doesn't get mentioned in same sentence as McDavid, Mathews and MacKinnon.

To have Flames retain on both, Barabanov and certainly Kivihalme does not move the needle

2nd helps but they would want a more proven player then Barabanov back. Flames may not go full rebuild mode but reset mode in offseason so again would want an NHLer back

Bennett is an NHLer Baravanov not sure yet.

You don't need 3rd for Dunn. This point he's a 3rd pair dman

To take Kerfoot's contract, more then Laughtin, 5th not enough

Maybe NJ trade.
