Not sure Avs and Flames would make those deals. Avs don’t need Dermott for one thing.

Avs have a LHD that consists of Girard, Graves, Cole, Bryam, and even Zadorov. Johnsson as a middle six winger doesn’t hold enough appeal to trade a 1st for.

Flames deal is a similar situation. As a 28 year old sophomore, Holl doesn’t hold a lot of trade appeal. Especially to a Flames team that is stacked in defensemen better than Holl. Kerfoot would have to displace Bennett on their 3rd line somehow, so the need to trade for a centre is not obvious either.

The Florida one is the most viable imo. Even then I have doubts.

1.) 19 Sep 2020 14:44:38
Leafs won’t need to trade Nylander if they get Pietrangelo. It just moves the need from defence to forward. They can steadily get a guy like Roy or Jokjhhairu to play with Muzzin for Dermott or something.

2.) 19 Sep 2020 15:25:02
Mostleaf $50 million on a 81 cap to 5 players.
Yeah ok
And then you follow that up by saying just get a steady dman. with no suggestions
So like go on eBay and search that way
Honestly stop replying to my posts unless you have something intelligent to say.

3.) 19 Sep 2020 16:30:36
I literally suggested Roy and Jokijhairu. Demelo is another option. Also Lehtonen could possibly play with Muzzin and then you sign someone for the bottom pairing.

4.) 19 Sep 2020 19:00:54
The Roy trade I like. Have always thought he's a good target.

Yeah I agree ekblad is a franchise defenceman. I can just see it being Nylander for ekblad straight up. The one thing they may want back is a guy like dermott just to help on defence.

5.) 20 Sep 2020 02:11:31

I see the point you are trying to make, and I agree with both the premise of what you are saying, and that the value of Dermott is roughly equal to Roy or Jokiharju. But I wouldn’t say they could “easily” get either Roy or Jokiharju for Dermott. Those guys are both good players and at a premium position for one thing. For another, it’s hard to say if they would need Dermott.

Jokiharju figures to be a big part of Buffalos future and has a higher projected ceiling. They are looking to move on from Ristolainen and possibly Montour too. Jokiharju is still on ELC for another year and will not be expensive to re-sign. I have a feeling Buffalo foresees a Dahlin/ Jokiharju top pairing in the very near future. Now Dermott could be a good fit for the 2/ 3LHD along with McCabe, but only if Samuelson or Johnson doesn’t make the team next year.

Roy is a more realistic target imo. Doughty is preventing one of Roy or Walker from reaching top 4. So one of them could easily be traded. But they also have Clague and Bjornfot for LHD, so I’m not sure if Dermott is a guy they would need. Bjornfot and Clague will take up their bottom four, so unless Dermott is brought in to play 1LHD, they might not see a fit for him. I like Dermott, and think he is a top 4 player, and could even turn into a 1LHD one day. He’s still young enough he could easily be a number one some day. But he isn’t that right now. And if he was, he would be worth a lot more than either Walker or Roy.

There’s a lot of decent free agents this year, ranging all the way from elite (Pietrangelo) to good/ very good (Brodie), to bottom pairing grinder (Schenn) . We could be better off just trading Dermott for assets and just sign someone outright.

I like the idea of the first trade, but Flames don't have the cap space, nor do I think they would do that deal. If you want Andersson and Bennett, I think it is more like Anderson and Nylander for Andersson, Bennett and 2020 2nd.

Second trade I don't like it at all. I think people are overvaluing Demko at the moment. If the re-sign Markstrom, Demko is likely gone in the expansion draft. He should be had for a lot less if wait and see what happens with Markstrom.

2.) 19 Sep 2020 16:58:28
Two more one sided Leaf trades that neither the Flames or Canucks would do.

3.) 20 Sep 2020 02:23:23
If Canucks re-sign Markstrom I could see them having some interest in that trade. Sandin is LHD and would eventually give them a helluva good 1-2 punch with Hughes and Sandin as their top LHD. Their RHD needs work still though. Juolevi is developing slower than they like, while Edler ain’t getting any younger, while Myers and Tanev both have injury history and aren’t going to get any better than they already are.

One can also flip mikheyev and smith.

3.) 19 Sep 2020 06:28:02
I'm guessing in this situation it means markstrom was resigned. If he is then they probably don't mind that return. Bracco is a throw away but could still be ok. Woll could fit in as a tandem in a few years and Dermott being the main piece works out. Hard to say what the return on goalies is though. So up in the air.

Looks like a bit of an overpay to me for ekblad. I would take the first out. Nylander is still a 30 goal scorer. Has to be worth close in value.

Man that canes trade has me at a loss. I'm not sure whether it's an overpay or not. Canes get the goalie they want and 2 good prospects. Leafs get pesce. A year ago I say canes want that for pesce alone. After his surgery though? Who knows. Who even knows what he looks like going forward.

Which 1st in NJ sending?

4.) 19 Sep 2020 10:54:37
No way Florida moves Ekblad for anything less
If they do then they are really knuckleheads
He is a franchise d man

The canes trade. I am assuming all is well with Pesce after the medical

The nj 1st is the 18th overall.

5.) 19 Sep 2020 11:26:36
Also leafslife. I don’t think that may be even enough for Ekblad add. Bracco Or brooks if needed.

6.) 19 Sep 2020 15:26:56
Also The canes trade Leafs get a 1st leafslife.

7.) 19 Sep 2020 22:09:55
Ekblad is a weird one. Normally I agree that ekblad is worth far more but after the Kapanen+ for ekblad rumours I'm not sure. Of course that was dumb ass Tallon though.

1.) 16 Sep 2020 03:45:47
I like it. All we need is someone "tough" on the right side beside Reilly in order to become contenders. Perfect sense.

2.) 16 Sep 2020 09:58:28
If you follow hockey even remotely youll know trouba hates canada and playing anywhere in it. Those 6th round picks are worth more thsn any leaf anyways so both ny and calgary decline.

Ny then offers geogiev, deangelo and 2nd round pick 2020 and lias andersson to cangary for johnny hockey.

Trade kerfoot johnsson for picks
Pietrangelo would be a huge add
But 5 guys taking 60 percent of the cap
Top 2 lines Hyman mikheyev (signs for about 2 million per) Matthews Tavares marner nylander make 45 million
Bottom 6 forwards would make 6 million tops (Robertson barabanov korshkov Engvall Brooks Hallander)
Bottom pair d would be 2 million tops (Sandin Lilejgren)
Freddy jack 6.7
Rielly Muzzin Holl 12.6
About 72 million
Leaves 9 for pietrangelo
Lol make it happen Dubas

Dubas would do it. That’s the scary part.

I would pass on simmonds and Spezza
Sign Gudas for third pair d With lehtonen
A 4th line of Korshkov Engvall bastian would work just fine
Robertson and Sandin could spend another year marinating
Move barabanov up to the third line
Anyways good post a lot different than the other posts
Very original.
