Blues offer for rielly

STL- Scandella 1st 2023 Sanford
TOR - reilly

lhd replacement on cheap, big bodied 2/ 3lw who can score and play the physical game that tor needs. 1st in good draft.


1.) 21 Sep 2021 15:11:14
Replace Sanford with Thomas since after this deal you can’t afford him anyways.

2.) 21 Sep 2021 15:34:39
Tor: Reilly 1.5 retain
Stl: Thomas bortuzzo 1st 2022.

3.) 21 Sep 2021 16:52:51
Sanford has never been more than a 3-4LW for the Blues. That said, unless he has a breakout season he shouldn't cost much more if at all than what he currently makes. Scandella is solid. The 1st is not reliant on a re-sign, cap is about even, so Yea, I would do this.
Good prop Colt.

4.) 21 Sep 2021 19:05:48
Thomas will never be apart of a rental pending ufa trade. The fact that leafs and randy ask is laughable at best. The 1st. A solid dman in return signed for a few years on great aav with sanford a 2/ 3 lw who makes 2 mil now and is not going to need much more with a first in a great draft. That is by far a great proposal.

i am glad soomeone thinks so on the leafs.

5.) 21 Sep 2021 19:08:40

Thomas by himself would cost more then reilly so you prop is a joke.

6.) 21 Sep 2021 22:25:46
Pretty good prop Hotwing. I like this one.

7.) 22 Sep 2021 12:53:14
Lol ok him and his 12 points last year is elite.

8.) 22 Sep 2021 13:24:37
Faulk brought back
Edmondson (27yr unsigned) Bokk (same year 1st rd) and a 1st

So rielly brings back
Bortuzzo (32yr 1yr) bolduc (same year 1st rd) and 1st rd pick bare minimum

Edmondson was younger than bortuzzo is so blues might need to add another prospect or pick

Anything less and just leave Colt.

9.) 22 Sep 2021 14:03:30
Let's look at the value

Scandella > borts
Sanford > bolduc

I am sorry ypu want pieces unavailable but that's the offer and looks like several others like it. Also the cap doesn't work in your trade lol.

10.) 22 Sep 2021 16:48:19
The Faulk deal seems to have some facts wrong as I remember thinking at the time how little it took to get him since he immediately signed a 6 year deal (which had to be in place pre-trade) . Edmundson was also on an expiring contract like Faulk. Edmundson then signed in free agency to Mtl at end of season. Canes got only 1 season from him.

The deal was

To Stl
Faulk (pending UFA) and a 5th
Edmundson (pending UFA), Bokk (recent 25th overall pick) and a 7th round pick.

Rielly for Scandella (signed for 3 more seasons), Sanford (pending UFA) and a 1st (may be better than 25th or similar) is worth more than what the Canes got for Faulk IMO. Faulk had to already agree to a contract ahead of time for them to even get that and the Canes swapped out a 5th for a 7th.

With no sign and trade in place, this is fair for Rielly and better than what Faulk returned.

11.) 22 Sep 2021 17:24:57
Thanks for clarifying that for us. Also to clarify the 1st would be 2023 not this years.

12.) 22 Sep 2021 19:04:59
I don't agree with you often, but this seems like a good deal for both teams. Maybe now that you are in Seattle and they gave you the big bucks, there is less allegiance to the Blues. lol
Blues get an elite top 4 for at least one season. Leafs get 3 cost controlled vet D for the next 3 seasons (Brodie, Muzzin, Scandella) . They can decide to put money into either Sanford or Mikheyev end of season and we are weaker on the LW (or both if price is right) . The 1st in 2023 is not dependent on a re-sign, so assuming the Blues don't regress, should be in the 20's. Leafs don't lose Rielly for nothing and get two players for what he costs now cap wise.

Both teams benefit in the end. I give credit where it is due.

13.) 22 Sep 2021 20:08:36
To clarify, I meant the Blues top 4 as a group will be elite.

14.) 23 Sep 2021 20:59:27
The beauty thing about the Faulk trade was the hurricanes weren’t trapped with extra years of Edmondson and got a solid at the time prospect in Bokk.

Carolina got to test Edmondson out and when they went a different direction got a pick for him.

So same applies here. I assume Toronto will want to grab a nhl level dman with only 1 year left on him. They then can test him out. If he works they resign him if not they move on and might get a pick for him. Add in a recent 1st rounder by the blues and I can’t see why not the leafs might think about it.

Scandella and his extra years isn’t what I believe the leafs want especially at his price and age.

Not leafs fault if this trade isn’t cap compliant for the blues and it isn’t mine either. You suggested this trade so I’m Just stating what it might take for blues to get leafs to trade rielly.

Another nhl forward isn't but a forward prospect would be

Quite simple really even a non hockey fan can see how this logic works.

15.) 23 Sep 2021 23:45:45
You asked for bortuzzo 1st and bolduc. That's just not happening for a rental. You prop is a joke. Faulk cost book and edmundson and came with an extension so if you expect the trade you proposed then rielly better have an extension 6 ×7.

16.) 24 Sep 2021 08:38:17
Yeah I changed my proposal colt so the jokes on you

Bortuzzo Bolduc

If rielly extended blues add 2nd as rielly is much better than Faulk.

17.) 24 Sep 2021 13:23:36
Blues are not trading bolduc for an expiring contract he is a center prospect and that is a need for blues. The offer i made is the only offer you get end of story. LOL no gm is going to give this for a rental they most likely won't be able to extend. You say that but faulk had a great season and actually plays defense. yes morgan got more points but his defensive numbers are lacking. Faulk only got bokk and he was not as highly regarded as bolduc. lol.

18.) 24 Sep 2021 13:25:26
final offer

Scandella 1st 2024 Zach Sanford.
Morgan rielly and Liljgren.

19.) 24 Sep 2021 14:34:51
You said same about Bokk until blues added Bokk. U insisted blues stent dealing Bokk to land an dman.

Look what happened 1 week after u insisted Bokk is untouchable.

20.) 24 Sep 2021 16:17:14
I never said that. Please shoe me where I said that. you can't cause I never didn't bokk wasn't a highly regarded prospect. At the time kyroy kostin perunovich were our top prospects and guess what you ain't getting kyrou kostin perunovich bolduc kessel galloway roberston for reilly and expiring contract.

In all honesty I could see the Blues offering a 1st for hampus lindolhm and calling it a day.

21.) 24 Sep 2021 16:31:38
U tell better stories than Walt Disney.

22.) 24 Sep 2021 18:10:50
ok blues say you can lose rielly for nothing. I honestly rather have a more defensive player in Lindholm. he will be cheaper.

23.) 25 Sep 2021 22:18:47
Finally it’s over.



14 Sep 2021 18:15:16
Bozak signs with blues 1 year 750k.


1.) 14 Sep 2021 19:45:52
Thanks TSN.

2.) 15 Sep 2021 00:22:29
No problem db.



19 Aug 2021 13:33:11
How about this

Tarasenko Sanford


Morgan reilly.


1.) 19 Aug 2021 14:45:42
Francis wouldn't take Tarasenko for free why would Dubas send you Mo?

2.) 19 Aug 2021 15:01:56
Never mind the extra $4.5M cap hit we can't take on.

3.) 19 Aug 2021 15:04:22
Francis didn't take him cause he wanted Dunn as his top lhd. Also taraenko wasn't willing to completely waive his no trade so Francis didn't want the headache.

4.) 19 Aug 2021 21:00:51
You and your Dunn love

He took him to be his 7th dman to be a project since he is getting in deangelo territory with his great upside but horrible attitude

As far as this deal throw take out Sanford hand over Kessel loof petterson and Robertsson and retain 2.5 per on tarasenko.

5.) 19 Aug 2021 23:14:21
@Hotwing nobody thinks Vince Dunn is a legit 1LHD. If he was then Army doesn't leave him unprotected.

6.) 20 Aug 2021 01:20:45
I'd love the Sanford and tarasenko deal if stl ate 50 percent of the contract.

7.) 20 Aug 2021 13:35:49
Best they could do is 1.5 mil of tank and 1 mil of Sanford.

8.) 22 Aug 2021 00:27:31
You realize since this year is the main part of the deal each team is taking on an upcoming ufa. Thst makes tarasenko 9.5 salary owed this year a huge deal breaker. Even with your genius response Leafs gain 2 million salary in cap but an extra guy so not as bad as it appears

The bad is the 7.6 plus 1 million for 3 million in salary trade off leafs gain. Rich company or not 5.6 million is still 5.6 million.

Then Leafs can only hope tarasenko is 1. Recovered 100% from a bad injury that really hinders players from getting back to their ability before this injury and 2 happy

Is 2 million in cap 5.6 in salary and the extra roster spot worth this unknown

Then we have to talk about year 2. Talk about a big kick in the face if neither points are met and now leafs are stuck with 5 million in less cap space and 4.4 million in gained salary owed. If he doesn’t work out in year 1 Leafs are in big trouble for year 2

I mean all could work out and Leafs could embark on a great journey with 3 40 goal scorers and marner grabbing 100 assists in the process. Then all the cap and salary is forgotten. Unfortunetly the odds aren’t in Leafs favor for what I just wrote to happen

So leaf fans what do u really think?

9.) 30 Aug 2021 17:16:30
Another good one JdB1394.



09 Jul 2021 23:09:21
Rodion amriov Timothy liljgrrn

Tarasenko 1.5 mil retained.


1.) 09 Jul 2021 23:37:48
Even with 1.5 retained that’s still too much against the Leafs cap.

2.) 10 Jul 2021 00:40:42
This is actually the kind of move I can see Dubas making.

I don't think this is where Tarasenko wants to play though not do the think the Blues retain.

3.) 10 Jul 2021 12:00:37
This deal is very reasonable. 6 million cap hit for a big dude with a shot will really open that 1st line up. Marner now has more options watch out

One of the best deals ever.

I mean if you are willing to discuss Hyman for 4.5-5 million why not grab a 40 goal guy for 1 million more

Get er done.

4.) 10 Jul 2021 18:15:50
Leafs will not bring in an expensive forward unless Marner goes, and that’s not likely.

5.) 11 Jul 2021 00:07:10

If Dubas can he pull it off he 100% will bring in a guy like Tarasenko.


Tarasenko has a modified no move. You think he has the Leafs on his list?

6.) 11 Jul 2021 22:24:03
At this point they are playoff team and he has 2 years to show he can put up 35 goals again for his next contract why wouldn't he move to an offense team first.



25 Sep 2020 05:00:34
Word on street is

Blues sign petro to 8 years 9 million
Then trades petro to toronto with 1 million retention for Morgan reilly. The final cap hit for petro would be about7.25 asv. Morgan reilly would allow leafs yo stay under cap. So

Muzzin petro

Blues runn the following

Rielly parayko
Scandella faulk
Dunn boots
Mikola reinke peronovich

Leafs defense takes a step forward and balances with muzzin petro top pairing.


1.) 25 Sep 2020 07:04:09
Man love that 3 d the leafs have
Although I am concerned about the minutes they would have to play.

2.) 25 Sep 2020 10:16:57
Why would petro agree to this? Players want to be competitive so he knows if rielly must go in order to have him be a leaf why would he want st. louis to gain and leafs not gain.

If he truely wants to be a leaf he will want the organisation to get the best package for his future with the team. Rielly for himself doesn't do this.

Rielly for prospects and picks will do this

Word on the street is Petro signs 1 X 9 with 8.2 in signing bonus then signs an extension when able 8X 8.5 with close to 50 million in signing bonuses over first 3 years. now how is that for word on the street.

3.) 25 Sep 2020 14:21:21
Yea, you would think the idea of coming here and playing on a D-core that has Rielly and Muzzin already with some promising young D is appealing to Piet. Add in Matthews, Marner, Tavares up front.
Can't see why he would want Rielly or Muzzin gone to come here.

4.) 25 Sep 2020 14:33:59
Just curious as to where you get this nonsense why would the leafs try and get older and pay more I could see this if Reilly was in his contract year but makes no sense right now.

5.) 25 Sep 2020 14:46:35
Why would the leafs do the Blues a favour by giving them our best defenceman for someone 5 years older them him who will likely start to decling in three? Like what is the point of that? WE can just wait for Petro to walk then trade Kerfoot+Johnsson. Find someone else who will help you out in a flat cap world lol.

6.) 25 Sep 2020 15:38:25
The street should stop talking.

7.) 26 Sep 2020 04:07:48
Dolt. Are you seriously trying to imply Armstrong would a) retain $1M salary for 8 years and b) willing to sing Pietrangelo to a deal with signing bonuses and NMC, all with the intention of trading him immediately after?

I’ve put up a few head scratchers before. Even some outright laughers. But this one takes the cake. Without a doubt this is the dumbest thing Armstrong could do. Let lone just how dumb it is for the Leafs. If two teams could do something stupid they would both regret, this would be it.

8.) 28 Sep 2020 12:02:09
What street is that?
More like the back alley!

Is this finally the year we don't see hundreds of parayko trade posts. nice.


1.) 10 Sep 2021 00:13:16
I don't remember ever seeing hundreds of Parayko trade posts Hotwing.

2.) 10 Sep 2021 12:48:28
@LL. Maybe he meant on the Blues forum and is just looking for some sympathy. lol.

3.) 11 Sep 2021 14:54:30
Is this finally the year we don’t see hotwing trolling this site as Leaf fans have nothing more to ask from st. louis as now they have signed players I like but not at new price or they’ve simply let the other guys we line leav

Bye bye hotwing nice knowin you.

4.) 12 Sep 2021 17:46:55
I font troll trades I give you guys sheet for your hugely 1 sided trades. Please let's keep the basis of our current relationship honest and not lie about why I come here. Also don't sit here and act like the player you all have tried to court for the last 4 years (parayko) is a stranger to this site. You all have been trying to get him since he became a blue.

5.) 13 Sep 2021 02:54:01
@Hotwing I believe your speaking about Petro. Very rarely were Parayko trades put up.

6.) 13 Sep 2021 17:43:34
Lol bull crap and you know it. It was generally parayko. You would offer nylander ect mostly bull.

7.) 14 Sep 2021 08:05:32
There were 2 trades out there
Nylander for parayko
Kapanen with a pick and or prospect for parayko

2 trades over the course of 3 years

Well whoopie doo Basil what does it all mean.

8.) 14 Sep 2021 19:47:50
No one in their right mind would trade Nylander for Parayko lol.

Most of what I saw was Rielly for Parayko straight up.



22 Jul 2021 13:49:01
Looks like you finally got one of your mythical sign and trades. lol



1.) 23 Jul 2021 00:40:36
They have been done before. This isn't the first time in history lol.



01 Feb 2021 15:53:40
So last week. Someone asked for kyrou. I told them no he is on the first line and currently u touchable for blues. He hot upset said only like 5 players are untouchable in the NHL and he is only o. First line because tarasenko is hurt lol.

5 goals 5 assists 10 points + 4 and by far the best player currently for blues. yeah let's trade him for demrot and crap lol.


1.) 01 Feb 2021 18:23:33
So I did some real recess here the other night and I first found a letter from a woman explaining her boyfriend and how to friends he hides their love because he wants everyone around him to think he’s a ladies man. Then She goes on about how he acts when they are alone. She started the whole story by panting a picture to the reader of how he looks while doing his pod cast

Well then I searched for his podcast and found it. I did some digging into his childhood. Found out this guy is a big redwings fan because his dad from Windsor was a huge wings fan.

I then listened closely for key words and phrases. Turns out this guy on the podcast types how he talks.

It finally makes sense. A lifelong wings fan during their glory runs in the mud 90s to 2010. This kid gets drafted by another team but on forums cheers for the wings. Then once he finally makes the blues he switches names and teams to write about. He is all blues baby.

His first d partner and guy to help him with ins and outs with team is Colton Parayko. There’s the new handle. The feeling bad for tarasanko after injury and fact Tarasenko sold him his condo he lived in now is why puts Russian in fronts of it.

If you dare tried to trade 2 of his closest pals Kyrou and Thomas he will hiss at you. Deep down he has a man crush on the first guy who took him under his wing.

In the summers not much is written by him as he is back in Canada training and has not as much time around computer as he does during season.

He went very silent during and after blues run and cup winning. Didn’t even brag about it much

Why? Because he can’t. Because if anyone found out a blues player goes on hockey forums and argues crap with people he’d be mocked hard

The one time he did brag it was about his hockey rubbish and skating and do on. He almost matched up perfectly to this player

Now we try to trade him and holy outrage

Ladies and gentleman I’d like to introduce Russian Colt by his real name

Vince Dunn

Welcome to the leaf forum Jack butt.

2.) 01 Feb 2021 19:28:16
Alright not really., or Reilly?

That was just fun to do

Vince grew up cheering for leafs in honour of his grandfather. His dad is a cop and his hometown is Peterborough

However, outside those facts everything lined up pretty nicely.

Once a leaf fan grew annoyed after 2005 with team management so by 2008 made switch to redwings as they won the cup. Then got drafted by blues but didn’t get to team for a couple years. Then once on team switched teams to his playing team

So there u have it folks.

3.) 02 Feb 2021 12:01:48
You had me going there for a moment Craigger.

I talk the way I type. I even look the way I type.

It’s just natural to mimic the way you talk into the way you type. Personality comes through more that way.

4.) 02 Feb 2021 16:03:36
Research don’t lie

Everything I saw pointed to Vince Dunn. Only thing that stumps me is his wiki states he cheered for the leaf as a kid due to his grandfathers influence.

However, it’s possible he switched to redwings at some point in his life as his handle in in 15-16 referenced the redwings and he was always referencing redwing trades. Then in 17-18 and beyond he made the blues so switched over. His biggest influence that first year was parayko so he developed a man crush on him as he really argued strongly about him. More passion than his site has ever seen.

He is huge into his podcast. However, only does it in st. Louis. When he is back in Ontario he changes his hobbies to get his mi d away from his st. Louis daily routines. His podcast is what keeps him indoors and out of trouble when not playing practicing having meetings and travelling.

In the summers we rarely read anything from him. 1 thing he did write that made me laugh was when he decided the 1 time to go out of character and posted he just played his first pickup game with the boys in a while. Not bad for first time out. Then he went on about his 91mph clapper. He was a fast skater but hates going backwards. Said he didn’t score but got a bunch of prime helpers. Very odd for a forum guy. Well Dunn is a great skater but skating backwards he shies away from genes why he ducks defensively. He does have a 90-93 mph shot which is on for an nhler. It probably was his first scrimmage since season ended. Heck he even said he makes slot of money for doing nothing really, well 20 hours a week to make a million bucks a year then so yeah that is true

Everything seems to point to Vince Dunn
Haven’t got a response yet. Hmmmm very odd.

Oh yeah he is on hot seat right now probably needs to get hid kind back in the game instead of on these forums

Vince Dunn Aka RussianColt.

5.) 02 Feb 2021 18:37:33
LOL. That's awesome.
Add to that, there is also a "Dun" horse. One form of Dun horse is the Przewalski horse, which was named after "Russian" Geographer and explorer Nikolaj Przewalski. A young male "Dun" would obviously be a colt. If it were a Przewalski, it would literally be a "Russian Colt".

I think you nailed it Craigger.

6.) 02 Feb 2021 20:42:43
Haha that’s it now I’m convinced

Thanks RLF you went even farther with it and now I’m not going back

Vince Dunn welcome to leafs form

2 straight days of not shutting up and now complete silence. Don’t worry Vince I won’t tell hishon who would definetly tell Binner that you’re on rumour forums.

Oh vinny boy.

7.) 02 Feb 2021 20:56:19
Throw in fact any deals involving kyrou or Thomas he totally gets his head out of joint. Considering the 3 are BFFs and played in a fortnite tournament during the c.v. league pause. They did get 2nd and did donate the 100gs 3 charities. Sick kids st. Louis, food banks and muscular dystrophy. So that I’ll give them great respect for.

So Vince well done on fortnite but now I know why your game is hurtin this year. Video games are on your mind way too much along with your blog. Smarten up and play some D. LOL.

8.) 02 Feb 2021 20:58:15
Lol craiger I love to get you going. Kyrou though yeah he is a boss. Dun. Better than you guy
. now go on a rant.

9.) 02 Feb 2021 21:18:05
Hey I don’t need to protect an image Vince

Less of this and more thinkin about what u do on the ice

I’m not a huge betting man but you’ll be dealt to montreal for mete very very soon

Dunn done as a Blue. Say your bye byes to your boys. Kyrooo, Thommer, Coltzie and Binner

#Dunn looks good in red.



14 Oct 2020 03:01:43
So my guess is about 5 10 games in the season when the new rhd Bogosian fails expectations the sheety parayko trades will stRt.


1.) 14 Oct 2020 05:30:23
Lol. Did someone say Bogosian is a 1RHD in the NHL and I missed the comment?

Usually nonsense. Bogosian may get a shot beside Reilly but most likely he plays third pair.

No one wants Parayko. You can have fun with Krug lol.

2.) 14 Oct 2020 12:13:09
With so many depth defensemen, Leafs will likely be running a rotation on the bottom three: Dermott, Lehtonen, Bogossian. Each play two out of every three games with one sitting. They can use that as internal competition and personal motivation to bounce Holl off the second line.

With virtually every single Leafs defenseman having at least one or two question marks going into this season, I think it’s a good idea to have as much depth on defense as possible. Especially with the condensed schedule. Injuries, which always happen, will be an even bigger factor, and we will need the extra bodies to fill in.

I’m excited about the Brodie signing. Even still, something seems missing from that top 4. I just can’t put my finger on it. Maybe it’s that big stay at home defensive defenseman that I (and much of Leafs Nation) seem to insist we need. A Parayko type. I was hoping Holl would turn out like that, but like Gauthier, Dubas tainted him. Now Gaithier is gone (too soft anyway), and Holl with that big body of his is just another pillow in the back end.

3.) 14 Oct 2020 18:57:30
I know what you mean hockeyluvr, about something missing. I think the problem is the fact that so many of their D shoot left - Reilly, Muzzin, Brodie, Dermott, Lehtonen, Sandin. I think if even one of these guys was a righty instead of a lefty things would feel much better.



08 Oct 2020 01:19:38
Lol bracco doesn't get qualified.

I font troll trades I give you guys sheet for your hugely 1 sided trades. Please let's keep the basis of our current relationship honest and not lie about why I come here.
