The reconstruction of the 3rd line

Tor: Johnsson
Cgf: Bennett

Tor: Kerfoot
Nsh: Watson

Tor: kapanen
Cbj: Anderson

Watson Bennett Anderson

This line would be a line that I would hate to play against you'd be getting hit every time you touch the puck for each trade you could add picks or prospects to even it out but we get the style of player we need while getting some cap savings

I’d do it but I’d say add Bracco, holl and Engvall and pry David Savard from them.

20 May 2020 15:03:06
Anderson is not worth Kapanen at all, Columbus would have to add a very good prospect like Texier or Milano or Fix-Wolanski.

20 May 2020 15:06:17
I think all are overpayments and the other team should be adding at least one decent prospect.

20 May 2020 15:52:39
Other than this year Anderson and kapanens numbers have been pretty much identical the difference is kapanen was healthy all year and Anderson had injuries don’t undervalue a player based on one year kapanen isn’t that great of a player himself if he hasn’t done much in terms of improving in the past two years as for the other trades Bennett doesn’t put up the points that Johnson does but he also makes less and would be a more effective role player and Kerfoot same deal Toronto doesn’t need every line to be goal scorers we need toughness and role players that’s what these three bring the leafs need to save cap somewhere and this is how you do it without trading one of Matthews marner or Nylander.

I’m just saying these trade are basically middle six forwards for bottom 6 forwards, there is basically no incentive for the leafs other then the grit these players bring and the cap savings they will get.

However, the thing is they can get more from these trades, that’s what I’m saying. You may even be able to pry Nutivaara from Columbus as well.

Another thing is I just don’t see all three of these guys being traded and not a single defenceman coming back the other way.

@Leafs1994 I agree Anderson will probably rebound from his bad season. I also think he can actually be had cheaper though so maybe Kapanen and a decent pick or prospect as you stated works out.

The first two aren't all that far off if you add in some kind of prospect or pick either. Good prop all in all.

20 May 2020 17:39:20
I don't think Chart makes that deal. Bennett has been a solid third line centre for them. Unless they have a replacement come back, I don't think they will take this. Johnsson is a leftie. Calgary is looking for a right shot forward. So maybe Kapanen. But probably not Johnsson.

20 May 2020 17:52:43
I don't want to knock down Watson, he is a good player, but his history of substance abusers makes me think Leafs would be very hesitant to make this deal. If he was three or more years removed from rehab, it would be a lot safer bet. Right now though, especially with the season suspended and all that free time, I would take a wait and see approach.

20 May 2020 19:08:11
At leafs gm I think the flames need winger depth they have a lot of center depth as it is if they want a righty maybe a guy like Engvall or Korshkov with Johnsson in a bigger deal might work out better as for Watson I see where your coming from but I think in a top organization like Toronto I think he would get a lot better help with that kind or thing.

20 May 2020 23:08:32
I might do this, but what toronto really needs is a d-man that can actually play D.

21 May 2020 02:28:17
You're right. Flames are looking for a right shot winger. Bennett is a good player. He would be a good replacement for Kerfoot. If we could get him for Kapanen or Johnsson I think it's a good idea. It doesn't save a ton of cap, but every dollar counts at this point.

Watson is a good player too. He seems to have done well enough this year. There's a good chance he might have it under control. If Nashville played him, chances are he's doing well. NHL has a good substance abusers program. I'm sure he's well taken care of.

21 May 2020 02:45:04
D-man that can actually play D Toronto actually has some of lol just not on the right side. Reilly makes his mistakes but is passable. Dermott is improving immensely every year and Muzzin is obviously a shut down guy.

Keep kappy and run

Kapanen- Bennett- Anderson.
