So apparently talks between Pietrangelo and St.Louis have stopped and Pietrangelo will be hitting free agency.

My source of Darren Dreger from his twitter feed. So how do you feel Colt?

If Petro leaves we all know what he will say lol. "He wanted to much. Army isn't dumb enough to pay him that much money. He's overrated. "


2.) 19 Sep 2020 13:25:58
Apparently the Blues offered 7.7 per. That seems a bit low but again that would be a hometown discount. It also sounds like they didn’t disclose the details of the Contract to Pietrangelo or his agent at all. Maybe he won’t cost as much as we all though. Perhaps he can be signed for 8.5.


3.) 19 Sep 2020 15:27:42
Yes and if we sign him at 8.5, it will be how only the Leafs would be stupid enough to do that. That said, as much as I would love to have Piet, if he signs here around 8.5, then one of the 4 have to go for prospects and picks. Can't have 5 guys eating up almost 50M of cap space.


4.) 19 Sep 2020 19:45:32
Sure you can. That's the Dubas dream lol.

Tor:
Johnsson
Any team:
2020 3rd, prospect

Just for cap space to make the next few trades

Tor:
2nd 2020, Dermott, 4th 2020
Ari:
Kuemper, Fischer

If Arizona really is planning on trading OEL then Dermott provides some stability on the blueline should they make that choice. They also get a pick in the 2nd round which they desperately need after having no 1st round pick this year or next year.

Tor:
2nd 2021, Mikheyev, Bracco
VGK:
Tuch

Heard that Vegas may be trying to clear some cap to sign a couple big names. Lehner could be one of them yes, but I also heard Darren Dreger talking about them potentially trying to land Pietrangelo. Trading Tuch who is making 4.75 million to play in their bottom 6 gives them more space to do so and they already have Glass who can likely take over his role on the third line. Mikheyev gives them a replacement for Nosek as Nosek is a UFA and will likely command more then Mikeyev.
DEAR ISLANDJET AND COLT. BRACCO IS JUST A THROW IN. HE IS NOT THE MAIN PIECE IN THIS TRADE. UNDERSTAND?! OKAY GREAT.

Tor:
Nylander, Andersen
Edm:
Bouchard, RNH, 3rd 2021

Edmonton gets another 30 goal scorer outside of Draisaitl and McDavid and fixes their goaltending at least for this year. Toronto gets the young RHD for Nylander and a pure playmaking forward for Tavares.

Tor:
Holl, Engvall
Nsh:
Jarnkrok

Nashville needs a proper 3rd pairing defenceman and Toronto needs a cheap 3C. I know Jarnkrok is primarily a winger but he can play centre, it says so on both on cap friendly and the NHL website.

Tor:
Kerfoot
Dal:
2021 2nd

Dallas needs some depth at Centre and on LW imo. They currently have 15 million dollars in cap space next season so even if they get Kerfoot they should still have money to sign Faksa, Hintz and Gurianov who are the only guys on expiring deals who really play a big roster role for them. Maybe stephen Johns as well. Plus they can offload Cogliano and/or Comeau if they have to.
I mean it doesn't have to be Dallas that takes Kerfoot it could be any team as long as he can get a 2nd round pick so the leafs can do this next trade lol.

Tor:
Liljgren, 1st 2021
Car:
Pesce

Carolina clears cap to go out and sign a goalie FA while getting a really good return for Pesce imo. Plus then they can start to focus on getting Svechnikov and Hamilton re-signed after next year.

RFA signings:
Gauthier 1 x 750k
Fischer 1 x 1 mill

UFA signings:
Spezza 700k

Hyman-Matthews-Marner
RNH-Tavares-Tuch
Robertson-Jarnkrok-Barbanov/Fischer
Brooks-Spezza-Barbanov/Fischer
*Gauthier

I think letting Fischer and Barbaonv battle for that 3rd line spot is great. It would give them something to compete over and drive Fischer to get back to potentially beating his career best 33 points and could push Barbanov to show his talent and that he can transition into a top 9 player in the NHL.

Reilly-Pesce
Muzzin-Lehtonen
Sandin-Bouchard
*Marincin, Rosen

You could easily swap Bouchard and Lehtonen I just thought Bouchard's size would compliment for Sandin's size.

Kuemper
Campbell

I know this is a lot to take in but I tried to do my best to clarify all the moves. Also for those of you wondering about cap, I did all these moves on capfriendly and the leafs would have just under 2 million in cap space which gives them a bit of wiggle room should they need it.

1.) 18 Sep 2020 13:27:56
nobody wants bracco brah.


2.) 18 Sep 2020 15:17:55
Okay but let's say he isn't in that trade, is it fair. because he is literally just a throw in, it could be like Petan or Gauthier instead.


3.) 18 Sep 2020 15:34:55
I would disagree that Bracco has no value and no one wants him. He has talent, his issues have not been due to lack of production, they are personal issues. A team looking for cheap offence help might take a flyer on him. If the price was right, they would have nothing to lose figuring a change of scenery might be what he needs. If right, he could be a big win for who acquires him.

Tor:
Dermott
La:
Roy

Tor:
Sandin, 1st (15th)
NYR:
Fox

Both LA and the NYR need LHD rather then RHD. The rangers can also use the puck they get from Toronto to draft Schneider which gives them another LHD prospect who plays more of a defensive game, which will help compensate for DeAngelo's and Trouba's more offensive style.

Tor:
Holl, Engvall
NSH:
Jarnkrok

Fills the bottom pairing RHD spot in Nashville and gives them a bit more depth in Engvall.

Tor:
Andersen
Van:
Virtanen

Gives Vancouver one more year to test Demko and see if he is 100% ready for the starting role, and allows them to spend more money on a guy like Toffoli or potentially Tanev rather then Markstrom and Virtanen.

Tor:
Kerfoot, 2021 2nd, Johnsson
Ari:
Kuemper

Sign a cheap 3C like Galchenyuk and a cheap 3rd pairing RHD such as Demelo

Hyman-Matthews-Marner
Mikheyev-Tavares-Nylander
Jarnkrok-Galchenyuk-Virtanen
Brooks-Spezza-Barbanov
*Gauthier, Petan

I honestly think with a weird season that it would be better for Robertson to play one more year in the OHL before making the jump. We can figure out which of Hyman, Mikheyev, and Jarnkrok we want to keep after next season is over.

It's just the last thing we want to do right now is rush Robertson, especially with a flat cap where we need guys on cheap deals. I think he does need to work on his skating a little bit anyway, but all other aspects of his game are good.

Reilly-Roy
Muzzin-Fox
Lehtonen-Demelo

I don’t see how adding more small defencemen helps the leafs improve at all.


2.) 13 Sep 2020 18:51:08
Matt Roy is 6’1
Dylan Demelo 6’1
Adam Fox 6’

Which of those guys are small exactly?

Just because a guy isn’t 6’10 270lbs doesn’t mean he sucks. It’s leaf fans like you that I can’t stand because if a guy isn’t big then you think they aren’t a proper option.

Then you want to target guys like Manson and Larsson who have had terrible seasons but because they are big all of a sudden their the perfect option for the leafs.

I’m sorry my team doesn’t fit your vision, but that defence core would be one of the best the leafs have ever had. The point is to make the team better, not just to target a big player who can only hit but otherwise stands there like a pylon.


3.) 13 Sep 2020 19:57:08
I remember when we had one of those for a captain.


4.) 13 Sep 2020 20:47:22
I hope Phaneuf comes back. He's a big boy and he likes to hit. Should make us contenders.


5.) 13 Sep 2020 20:50:26
Schneider is a RD as far as everything i have read about him. so would rather draft him ourselves if possible.


6.) 13 Sep 2020 20:52:38
And he ended up being bought out lol.


7.) 13 Sep 2020 21:37:18
Robertson sandin liljgren 1st 2020

For

Parayko barbashev.


8.) 13 Sep 2020 21:37:43
Schenn isn’t doing too bad in Tampa. He’s averaging over 10:00 a night in the playoffs this year. If they won, he will have honestly have played a real part in their success. Good for him. I always had a bit of a soft spot for him. Glad to see him finally have some success. I hope he becomes the next ex-Leaf to win a cup.


9.) 13 Sep 2020 22:13:27
Schneider being drafter doesn't help immediately though. I thinks that's Dubas issue.

Unless you trade Liljigren+ dermott for immediate help and hope Schneider works out. If Schneider is available at 15 because I'm not sure if he will be.


10.) 13 Sep 2020 23:16:57
If lesfs keep the pick and take schneider i hope they use a firth round pick on chad nychuk. they put the two together in final month of 2018-19 season and seemed to work. They played all year this past season together and both players stats and play really improved. why mess up a good tandem.

Just a thought.


11.) 14 Sep 2020 04:10:57
Oh poop ya my bad Schneider is a RHD not LHD lol. I guess it wouldn’t really matter to the Rangers because whoever they puck there won’t make an immediate impact so they could probably choose whoever they want.

Also ya LeafsLife that’s another Thing. I would see Florida or Edmonton possibly picking him up as they both probably need defence in the future. But it totally depends on who they want I guess.


12.) 14 Sep 2020 04:11:38
Colt I didn’t even post about St. Louis lol.


13.) 14 Sep 2020 10:08:57
Why would toronto want that garbage from st. louis.


14.) 14 Sep 2020 12:46:55
It’s not that I’m saying small is bad but we already have Reilly dermott Sandin Liljegren that are all smaller guys the play an offensive style game and that’s the same for the guys you are wanting to bring in the leafs need toughness not more offence.


 

 

13 Sep 2020 00:04:09
If Askarov and Schneider are picked before the leafs pick.

Tor:
1st (15th), 4th (VGK), 7th 2021
NJ:
1st (18th), 3rd (CAR)

Tor:
1st (18th)
Ari:
Kuemper, Fischer

Yes we lose our first but then we get Kuemper who has two years left on his deal rather then one. That buys a little more time to figure out the goalie situation. Fischer needs a fresh start. With the right teammates I think he can break his 33 point mark. Plus he will play for close to league minimum.

Nsh:
Jarnkrok
Tor:
Holl, Engvall

No secret that Nashville needs help on the bottom pairing defensive pair and simply depth overall. Holl and Engvall can easily provide that for them.

Tor:
Dermott, Hollowel
Ott:
Tierney, Gaborik (LTIR)

I think Dermott is underated and this is a return he could easily get. Ottawa doesn't really need the LTIR space so paying Gaborik doesn't make sense for them.

Tor:
Mikheyev, Andersen
Car:
Pesce

Tor:
Liljgren, Kerfoot
Ana:
Comtois

Sign Demelo or Gudas (whoever comes cheaper)

Hyman-Matthews-Marner
Comtois-Tavares-Nylander
Jarnkrok-Tierney-Fischer/Barbanov
Brooks-Spezza-Fischer/Barbanov

Reilly-Pesce
Muzzin-Lehtonen
Sandin-Demelo/Gudas

Kuemper

1.) 10 Sep 2020 21:02:40
Don't think we get Anderson for Johnsson straight up.
To much "If" we can sign him (Lehner, Gudas) and "If" they work out in the lineup for me (Robertson, Comtois, Brabanov, Lehtonen, Brooks) we could be good.


2.) 10 Sep 2020 21:17:06
I also don't think Johnson for Anderson works. Been saying it for awhile. Anderson had some good years and one bad one. Johnson had one good year one bad one. Anderson is also a younger RFA. I don't get why CBJ would want to do this.


3.) 10 Sep 2020 21:31:55
Gudas is bottom pairing you could replace him with a lot of other players like Demelo or Bogosian for example.

If Lehner isn’t available there are lots of other guys we can target, not just in free agency, but also in a trade like Kuemper or Markstrom.

I mean we have to fill that RW spot somehow and I would prefer a power forward. Maybe Fisher from Arizona could be a target or signing someone like Simmonds.


4.) 10 Sep 2020 23:25:18
You must really like Comtois.


5.) 11 Sep 2020 00:12:15
Markstrom is a UFA is he not?

Would love to get markstrom nonetheless though. I don't see him costing less than Freddy though.


6.) 11 Sep 2020 00:18:11
Anderson is actually 6 months older than johnsson. columbus must qualify anderson at 2.1 . its been rumoured if no trade is offered they may not qualify him as they don't want to get stuck paying him 2.1 if he puts up same numbers as last season. big risk.

Your going to need a better sweetener then Johnsson to get New Jersey to give you that pick. He is likely worth a 3rd or maybe a late 2nd round pick. I think Dermott would be a good place to start as he is expendable because Sandin is likely ready for a full time roster spot.

Lol do you really think Winnipeg gives you the 10th overall for two middle six guys (mostly 3rd liners though) . Guess again bud.

Honestly I’d rather have Robertson when our LW depth is hurting and Hyman only has one year left on his deal.

Honestly I don’t think Liljgren is a bust. Just because he is a prospect for Toronto and hasn’t made the NHL yet that’s why people are saying he is a bust. Defenceman usually take longer to develope then forwards though. Just look how long it took Makar.

Honestly I would rather just try and get the 3rd overall from them. We don't really need Branstrom as he is just another left shot and he is more offensive minded. Maybe the 3rd overall and someone like Duclair who can step into the top 6 for Marner and a piece like Holl or Kerfoot.
