Not crazy about that defense to be honest.


2.) 29 Jul 2022 15:30:56
@Loxley1072 not sure what we can do for restructuring our defense unless a Core 4 is traded, which I don't think Dubas will do.
Personally, I don't want to trade Sandin but I don't see where he is going to play unless right side. Sandin is right to have some reservations at this point.


3.) 29 Jul 2022 23:32:16
@Tagz. I know what ya mean. i don't blame Sandin either. the ideal trade to me is to try to send Muzzin along with a 3rd round pick or something for Larson. save on cap and get a veteran D on right side so Sandin can play his natural position on left side. sign him for 2.2mil for 3 years. then move Kerfoot so we can sign Milano & Aston-Reese for combined 3mil. only issue is wether Muzzin would wave. can't see why Larson would have issue waiving. Dubas would have to tell Muzzin accept the trade or we are putting you on waivers. but i dunno that Dubas has the testicular fortitude to do that.


4.) 29 Jul 2022 23:59:29
Moving Tavares to LW with Necas centering he and Nylander would do my heart good.
Jarnkrok and Engvall are not even close to being 2nd line players on a contender.
Robertson is either a top six player or he doesn’t fit into the lineup.
He is not and never will be a 3rd/ 4th line player.


5.) 30 Jul 2022 00:22:12
@Loxley1972 I've been advocating Muzzin trades all along as well but agree that Dubas doesn't have the kahonas to do it.
@waterbuffalo49 the line up can be whatever works with this roster. I just think there would be good puck cycling with Engvall, Jarnkrok and Tavares. As the season plays out, the Necas line will probably take over 2nd line status depending on
how they gel.

To LA
Muzzin $4.5M (20% retained)

To Toronto
Vilardi $.825M
2023 3rd round

Then

To Philly
Sandin RFA
Kerfoot
2023 3rd round (from LA trade above)

To Toronto
Sanheim $4.675M
Frost $.8M

Lines
Bunting - Matthews - Marner
Engvall - Tavares- Jarnkrok
Robertson - Frost - Nylander
Vilardi - Kampf - NAK
Steeves

Rielly - Brodie
Sanheim - Liljegren
Giordano - Holl
Benn

Murray
Samsonov
Muzzin retention $1.125M

Cap approx $80,439,783 (21 man roster). Just over $2M to add 1 or 2 more Marlies (or sign UFA) for 22/23 man roster.

Thoughts on values?

Like RLF target of Crouse & McBain.

To Arizona
Kerfoot
Sandin

To Toronto
Crouse
McBain

Sign
Crouse $2.95M/2 years

Bunting - Matthews - Marner
Crouse - Tavares - Engvall
Robertson - Jarnkrok - Nylander
McBain/ - Kampf - NAK
Holmberg/
Steeves

Rielly - Brodie
Muzzin - Liljegren
Giordano - Holl
Benn

Murray
Samsonov

Cap is approx $82.470M using McBain AAV.

All three 4LW are waiver exempt so easy to bring up and down.
Pair Robertson with Nylander on line 3 with lesser competition to ease him into NHL.

Feel free to add picks/prospects to make this prop work.

Thoughts?

1.) 26 Jul 2022 18:53:44
I'm not very familiar with McBain, or his cap hit. Since we are already about 1.5M over the cap, would this trade work out? Also Engvall is not 2nd line IMO.


2.) 26 Jul 2022 20:09:22
Jack McBain was just signed by Arizona from Boston College. He's a 6'4", 210 lbs Center. Lots of teams showed interest in signing him so not sure if Arizona is willing to trade him.

Yes the cap works for a 21 man roster, 12 forwards, 7 defenseman and 2 goalies.


3.) 26 Jul 2022 21:04:32
I like it. Great prop. Fair for both teams, especially since Kerfoot's hit is more than his salary which helps Arz and they can flip him at the deadline.


4.) 26 Jul 2022 21:25:15
how about the Leafs send both, Sandin and Kerfoot for Lawson Crouse and 50 percent retained Jakob Chychrun.


5.) 26 Jul 2022 22:46:59
@Paco. The Leafs would probably love to do that, but the Yotes would be asking what/ who else are you sending and how many of them.


6.) 26 Jul 2022 23:37:25
They were looking for 4 pieces for Chychrun alone, I believe.


7.) 26 Jul 2022 23:47:37
Good prop. Looks fair to me.


8.) 26 Jul 2022 23:48:06
@pac you're really light if you want Chychrun with retention.


 

 

22 Jul 2022 15:04:04
To LA
Muzzin $4.5M (20% retained)
2023 3rd (Tor)

To Toronto
Roy $3.15M

Leafs open up a LD spot for signing Sandin who can play with Roy.

Tagz44

1.) 22 Jul 2022 18:17:42
So with the 20% retained, it costs about $4.25M for Roy I believe and we have to give a 3rd. Not sure I want to add a pick if we are retaining as it's two years of retention.


2.) 22 Jul 2022 19:14:20
@RLF I'm not sure how realistic thisnprop is but it would work out even better if we don't have to give up a pick.
Salaries are pretty much a wash with the retention, but we open up a LD spot for Sandin to slide into.
After we could just trade Holl for a 3rd or 4th to open up the cap space for Sandin.


 

 

18 Jul 2022 20:30:51
To LA
Muzzin $5.625M
2023 3rd (Tor)

To Toronto
Roy $3.15M
Phaneuf $1.0625M (1 yr remaining)

Leafs pick up a solid top 4RD and open up a spot for Sandin who can play top 4 along side Roy.

LA gets a tough shut down LD who can be reunited with Doughty on their top air. Also they open up a path for Sean Walker who was injured last season and who was an up and coming top 4RD for LA.

Thoughts?

Tagz44

1.) 19 Jul 2022 00:02:38
Just realized I can trade for dead cap space.
So
Muzzin $4.5M (20% retained)
2023 3rd (Tor)
For
Roy $3.15M.


2.) 19 Jul 2022 00:12:54
Sorry, buyouts cannot be traded.


3.) 19 Jul 2022 00:33:47
You can't trade retained salary or buyouts.


4.) 19 Jul 2022 04:12:58
You're referring to Pre Concussed Muzzin not Post Concussed Muzzin Sadly his tough D man days are done.


5.) 19 Jul 2022 05:46:48
@1stroundezit

He has never been a fighter, but he does move people from net front. If he isn't that guy anymore then someone needs to replace him. It isn't Mete or Sandin.


6.) 20 Jul 2022 18:50:37
Im sorry I ve read my post many times over and yet still never found the part where I commented that he was a fighter. Toughness comes in many forms not just fighting.

I hope Dubas trades down and uses one of his picks for Gleb Trikozov.

I understand Keefe wanting to play Simmonds and Clifford tonight, but why sit Blackwell??
Guy played his most minutes last game and had his best Leafs game by far, so his reward is to sit tonight.
If they want to play Simmonds and Clifford, sit Spezza (he could also use the rest).

Tagz44

1.) 01 Apr 2022 14:30:14
That’s my issue with keefe, he does this a lot, a player will play great, score a goal and then keefe pulls him out of the lineup.


2.) 01 Apr 2022 14:49:46
I thought they did a good job last night. They did what they have not being doing enough of lately.


3.) 02 Apr 2022 00:59:24
They did play well last night.
Simmonds played much better with some rest. I would have kept Blackwell in and given Spezza some rest too. Maybe they do it Saturday.


 

 

29 Mar 2022 18:08:46
Why does Keefe insist on aging either Simmonds or Clifford?
Don't you think that Anderson or Steeves should be given more opportunities?
I realize we should win or lose based on our 4th line but they need to be much better.
It seems like both Simmonds and Clifford's game have past them by and both seem slow out there. Our 4th line is a mess.

Tagz44

1.) 29 Mar 2022 18:21:43
Clifford looked good in there. Clifford-Spezza-Blackwell is a high energy type of line with Spezza available for the 2PP and PK. Clifford will do what Simmonds doesn't seem to want too anymore and drop the gloves. Blackwell has been great (imo) as a true 4th liner.

I have absolutely no problem running those three in the playoffs.


2.) 29 Mar 2022 23:35:28
I actually don't mind Clifford. I like Blackwell as well. I think you may see some of the others at playoff time.


3.) 30 Mar 2022 13:27:42
No complaints about Bkackwell, he has been a breath of fresh air. Love him on the 4th line.
I just believe we have better options out there other than Simmonds or Clifford (of course play either depending on opponent, ie POS Boston) .
Whether it's Steeves who is proving worthy with his play on the Marlies or Anderson, even Abruzzese and most definitely Knies if he signs. I would love to see one or two of these guys get a legitimate shot of competing for those spots.


4.) 30 Mar 2022 21:10:06
@Tagz. I think it is just that the Leafs can become intimidated and disinterested in physical games. Take those guys out and Matthews, Marner Nylander all get a bigger target on their backs. Anderson and Steeves will not do anything to deter taking runs at the Leafs top guys. Simmonds isn't fighting much, but guys still don't want to fight him, so his presence is still felt. imo.


5.) 31 Mar 2022 02:07:20
@RLF I agree but these guys haven’t been doing anything when people take runs, even hall on lybby, hall shouldn’t have gotten to finish that game either.


6.) 31 Mar 2022 11:24:08
@Randy. No, they haven't really done their job. The fact they might, I still think will makes a couple of guys think twice before they take run at a Leafs star. Remove them completely from the lineup and now the might go after someone becomes a moot point. That is all I am saying. The team in general needs to be tougher imo.


 

 

27 Mar 2022 23:02:31
Matthews getting a hat trick against Florida tonight.

Tagz44

1.) 28 Mar 2022 05:44:29
One (kind of) goal works too lol.

Lost to MTL then win against Florida on a back-to-back? This team really confuses me.


 

 

19 Mar 2022 11:29:57
I don't know how to figure out Leafs cap space available if Muzzin doesn't remain on LTIR.
Can someone enlighten me?
Thanks.

Tagz44

1.) 19 Mar 2022 18:08:04
If you wanted to calculate it yourself you would to calculate daily cap hit, for everyday sin d the season started. Whatever they were under the ceiling (everyday), add together.

Wennberg's contract is for 2 more years, not one. Seattle may want more for 2 years retention as opposed to 1 year.

@LL I think he'll just sign 4/ 5 year contracts to keep in line with the rising cap.
I would love for him to sign for 8 years.

@LL I agree he's not worth $11M, but I don't see him signing for less. I am hoping he signs for the same though.
@RLF I don't see Matthews signing for 8 years, probably 4 or 5 years.
$13.634M/ 4 years
Or
$14.634M/ 5 years.

I have to agree with RLF with regards to Marner's contract. His agent, his father and he took Dubas to the cleaners.
If you look at the other big RFA's at the time, Point, Laine & Tkachuk who all took bridge deals. Everyone was saying that Marner's AAV would be in line once they resigned. And if you look now, none of the resignings are close to Marner's 10.903M even though most signed for 8 years.
Point $9.5M/ 8 years
Tkachuk $9.5M/ 8 years
Laine $8.7M/ 4 years
Let's see what Marner decides to do next negotiations. I will only give him a pass if he signs for $11M/ 8 years.
