Why can't we just go get the player we need that will make a difference? . this player added alone would of got us past tampa, and probably to the cup finals last season . and now there's rumours that he's available? . what are we waiting for?

1st rd pick
Heck. if needed I'd even throw in Robertson

For. drumroll please.

J. T. freaking MILLER!

He's a difference maker. go get em!

I agree with going after Miller. He might only be a rental, but he's exactly what's needed.

2.) 03 Aug 2022 20:56:27
Would love to add him! If we can make the cap work. Someone may have to retain salary.

3.) 03 Aug 2022 23:58:22
Makes our cap worse.

Rsears ya maybe but the product on ice you have to admit is better. That is what really counts imo. Now, . not later. Plus we still have youth to back us up for the future.

5.) 04 Aug 2022 04:46:33
@Rsears Ithink if JT Miller is brought in, Nylander has to go. Which I'm also fine with.

6.) 04 Aug 2022 13:19:10
I agree that Miller would be a very helpful add but you’ve traded away a key piece the Leafs have to get cap compliant.

You would be $3+m over cap following this trade and will have also lost Sandin and your 1st round pick for a 1-year rental. I believe every move should be balanced against longer term needs as well.

And, of course, Miller can’t be resigned if you expect to keep Matthews and Marner so it’s strictly short term in nature.

I’d be interested if I had a place for Muzzin and yes I believe his need ranks ahead of Nylander. And yes I know I’m alone in that wish.

7.) 04 Aug 2022 13:22:17
Agreed. The only way to really fit in Miller is if Nylander goes. Even moving Holl for a pick if Kerfoot is in the deal for Miller doesn't create enough cap room.

Here's a few trades I'd love to see...I think they would put the leafs into the stanley cup finals

1) trade Holl for a draft pick

2) trade Kerfoot/Sandin and a 1st for J.T. Miller/L.Schenn

3) trade Muzzin for draft pick/s

Engvall/Gaudette/Aube Kubel

Trade Kerfoot/Amirov and 2nd to Buffalo for Reinhart

Sign Reinhart to 5yr 7million per....he is 25yrs old and his metrics in Buffalo are fantastic

Reinhart-Matthews-Marner 1st line

Kick tires on Coleman or Saad through free agency....4 to 5 million dollar range??

Saad/Coleman-Tavares-Nylander 2nd line

Mikhayev-Spezza-Robertson 3rd line

Bring back Bozak(free agency) for 1million.. (Good at face offs..we desperately need that...former leaf...stanley cup winner???

Engvall-Bozak-Simmonds 4th Line

Spare Forwards(Brooks/J.Anderson)


Rielly-Brodie 1st pairing

Muzzin-Holl 2nd pairing

Free Agency..kick tires on Oleksiak?...maybe 2 to 3million?

Oleksiak-Sandin(this kid has to play..enough already.. full time leaf) 3rd pairing

Liljgren spare


Campbell 40 to 50 games?

Free agency...sign Halak (30 to 35 games) league minimum.. (for some reason I trust a VETERAN backing up Campbell than some younger unproven goalie)

So come October if we have this lineup....




Maybe?...just Maybe?...we get past the first round..lol...🤞


1.) 08 Jul 2021 05:54:01
Maybe pre-cap era this works but as is your way over.

Halal won't take league min.

3yr window with the big 4

We need results NOW!!

Hyman...see ya
Andersen...see ya
Dermott...Seattle please take him
Kerfoot...trade chip
Leaf prospects...trade chips

Trade for Reinhart!!...don't care how just do it

Do some free agent shopping (Coleman?..Saad?...Oleksiak?)

Goaltending is tricky?...would love Ullmark or Dreidger, but may be too expensive?

Let's go Dubas!!. Reedem yourself because what I witnessed about a month ago, being up 3-1 and blowing it...was a colossal joke

Time to get serious!!


1.) 09 Jul 2021 06:10:34
What's with everyone and Rienhart all of a sudden. What makes you think he's so great?

2.) 09 Jul 2021 13:23:43
You have to have cap space to go free agent shopping and we would have to send cap out to take on Reinhart. Kerfoot and/ or some of our prospects likely won't be enough to get Reinhart.
Dubas has painted the Leafs into a corner.
