Pitts- Gachenyuk, Jarry

Tor - Johnsson, Ceci

I think this is a pretty even swap.Gives us a decent backup.Money is about equal

I would rather take a run at Matt Martin. He’s far more proven and almost definitely will become available. Pittsburgh has three quality nhl level goalies. DeSmith, Jarry, and Martin. Pittsburgh can only protect one in the expansion draft. At 25 years of age and two Stanley Cups (as a starter), Martin is a good target. I can’t see Pittsburgh making the same mistake and exposing Martin like they did Fleury. My guess is that they run with Jarry/ DeSmith and trade Martin.

Matt murray.

3.) 27 Dec 2019 17:38:35
Maybe. but it depends on his (Murphy) ability to lead the rookies when Freddy leaves. I love Martin but only if we can throw something in to get him. The rest is pretty even.

4.) 28 Dec 2019 00:43:21
Lol. Thanks RedWing. That has to be the biggest slip I’ve made in a while.

5.) 28 Dec 2019 14:20:29
Imagine that. Matt Martin trying to save goals. Lmfao. Just the thought alone makes me want to try it.

6.) 28 Dec 2019 21:04:26
Yep, missed it too, LOL. Thanks redwing.

I really want Marner to sign, so offer 3 x 9M bridge, if refused let him sit the year. And then..

Trade Ceci for picks (whoever wants him)
Offer Jake 2yr at 5M
Joe Thornton 1 yr at 2M
Pat Marleau 1 yr at 2M

Just for the helluvit would be fun to watch Spezza, Thornton and Marleau on a line.

Please be gentle on me...LOL


1.) 25 Aug 2019 22:53:44
Lol Marleau isn't coming back for many reasons. If that was the plan he could have just finished the year and saved us a 1st. Thornton is going back to SJ 100% I do not see him coming here.

Of all leafs (including Gardiner for now) I would consider Reilly and Gardiner the "best leafs" as in they really seem to like playing here and would make great captains. More because they both been here for a long time, and both love it here. That said I do not think Gardiner fixes any problems if Marner isn't here. If Marner sits the leafs need a new top line winger not Marleau playing 9 mins a game. I will say I think seeing a Spezza Marleau Thornton Line sounds fun lol.

I have said before and would love to know why I am wrong here; sitting Marner is the worst thing Dubas can do right now. This is a cup contention year with 2 defenceman being UFA next year. If he sits a full year you still have to deal with this next year except you can ONLY sign one year contracts so he still has space. You erode his trade value as if he doesn't play an entire year he becomes more of an unknown and every GM will know they can low ball you for him. You need to trade away prospects and picks to replace him because even if we all think Bracco is ready, throwing him in at a top 6 role is a terrible idea. You now make Mathews or Tavares play with Kapanen not Marner which is a massive downgrade on the wing. What does sitting him possibly help at this point? If Dubas told him July 1st "sign or we go after Panarin" it would have made more sense but right now your just hurting your chances and his trade value.

Would like to know if anyone thinks I'm wrong there but I think if Dubas can't sign him and doesn't trade him he should be fired. Reilly for Captain!

What the f**k Tuck? Lol. You’re comment to be gentle says it all. I can’t help but applaud the highly original imagination. Without doubt this is the most creative proposal in a long time. What I like best is that there is no trade in this proposal. It’s all about signings. To be honest, I actually don’t think it’s that bad. I would rather have Marleau and Thornton on the 4th line than basically anyone we have right now. If they would take one more kick at the can, then Leafs would have to at least consider. They got to be better than Gauthier and Aberg.

Here's a thought or two:

Tor: Gardiner, Sparks, Holl
Det: Jenson, Nyquist, Howard

Tor: Zaitzev, Brown, 2nd
NYR: McQuaid, Zuccarello

The money is about even and skill level. Any thoughts?


1.) 20 Feb 2019 16:52:53
I like the first trade maybe add a 2nd to it and drop Jensen and Holl then in the second trade just pick up McQuaid for cheap.

2.) 20 Feb 2019 16:58:06
This is interesting, but I don't leafs do the first think the leafs do the first trade for a couple of reasons. First, I heard Detroit wanted to re-sign Nyquist and Howard, so even if this trade does happen they may just go back to Detroit next year. Second, The leafs will need a true top 4D back if they want to trade Gardiner. We don't have the depth right now to replace him, and Jensen is a good top 6D but I don't think he would be good in our top 4.

I don't think the Rangers will give you Zuccarello for that package. They will want at least a 1st and a prospect for him. Zaitsev for Mcquaid is definitely something that Dubas should look at though.

3.) 20 Feb 2019 19:06:44
I wouldn’t expect Leafs to re-sign any of those guys anyway. That’s why try are called rentals. I don’t know how much Detroit would want Gardiner. We are probably better off keeping him ourselves than trading him for any of those guys. got to agree with MostLeaf regarding Zuccarelo. Besides, if you’re bringing in Nyquist, how much need do we have for yet another forward?

I pressed submit too soon, I meant to add.

Min. Dumba, Greenway

Tor. Gardiner, Brown


1.) 31 Dec 2018 21:13:20
This Minnesota trade is a dream. Even if Gardiner was extended to exact same as Dumba, I still have a hard time seeing Wild make this trade 2:2 straight up like this. Entering te season, Greenway was ranked in the top 100 prospects, and he’s showing why. Fully living up to expectations, he has a lot of potential, and is looking like he will best Brown’s production this year.

Love the targets. Just fantastic to player. They really are. As is proposed, this trade has no chance. Extend Gardiner and add pick/ prospect, and it would have legs enough to at least merit Minnesota’s attention.

2.) 31 Dec 2018 22:37:14
Getting dumba is a great suggestion. brown just may not be enough. i mean we all love him right now but kapanen is probably what needs to go to even get this conversation going. i'm game with that for sure. i mean if brown gets 20 playing with a rookie matthews. nylander scores 20+ with a sophmore matthews and kapanen on pace for 30 with a better matthews i'm sure whomever you put beside matthews will net the leafs a 25+ goal scorer. Dumba and his overall defensive game is definetly worth a 30 goal scorer beside matthews for a 25 goal scorer beside matthews. just sayin.

3.) 01 Jan 2019 03:40:09
Since Dumba is out to the playoffs, this issue is not a major possibility.

4.) 01 Jan 2019 21:31:13
Considering Gardiner's Minni roots we may not have to extend him, hometown boy and all might give him the incentive to sign. If we have to add maybe throw them Bracco and/ or a second?



31 Dec 2018 16:28:41
STL. Bouwmeester, Maroon,

TOR. Zaitzev, 4th


1.) 31 Dec 2018 22:37:44
Would love this deal simply for the future implications on the cap.

2.) 01 Jan 2019 23:32:19
Why? Why would blues take 5 years of a cap dump.

Tanev is undisciplined at times, not sure that helps.

The agent is very well known to the Leafs, Dan Milstein. I think it's a deliberate rouse to try to get a "reclamation" tryout for his client.

I think I'd rather send Engvall than Mikheyev, or possibly Brooks.
