Leafs trade Marner
LA trades Brown, Turcotte, 1st (2021)*
*Top 3 protected, becomes 1st (2022)

LA can easily afford this. They have the cap space, and they have the prospects at centre to spare.

Leafs gain valuable cap space they can use towards obtaining a 1RHD somehow. They also gain another veteran with all his leadership and cup winning pedigree. And they gain the 1st. Hoping L. A. tanks again and Leafs cash in.

I figure protect the pick top 3 this year. This way it is unprotected for when Wright is eligible. So if L. A. tanks again this year, we get their 1st unprotected for next year. It’s a huge gamble, but the payoff could be massive.

I don’t see this being a step forward for the leafs I know marners deal sucks but I don’t think the leafs move him he doesn’t have full value with his deal.

I knew somebody was going to say that.

Ok. What should L. A. add in order to make it fair? Kempe maybe? He’s a good depth piece with speed to burn and can play both wing and centre, though LA has been using him on wing.

We save almost $6M in cap space. That is a huge factor to consider L94. And if you think it’s undercalued, simply add a pick/ prospect/ player you think is worth it to make up the deal.

The whole point of this trade was to free up significant amount of cap space and bring in a couple A-prospects or picks to have for the future. I know Brown is a real let down from Marner, but the difference in value should be able to be overcome by adding on another prospect or player like Walker or Clague or Kempe.

I’d only take out stipulation and then it’s up to LA with the marner added to team to improve. If doughty kopitar marner byfield can’t get past bottom 10 in league then they don’t deserve this pick.

Basically becomes a show me what u old guys can do with the injection of byfield marner youth. If they still suck too bad not leafs problem. Stips are dumb anyways

I’d also change brown for carter simply do to the Sau st Marie thing but not a deal breaker at all

So no real huge changes I actually like this deal with that stip thing taken out.

Just read the Wright thing but odds are la only gets better with this deal as younger leaf guys step in so yeah huge gamble on that but whatevs still a solid trade.

I think to move Marner and get picks/ prospects back, you need to take back a decent sized, but possibly aging contract. This fits that.
Instead of Turcotte, I would like to try Fagemo, 2021 1st (Top 3), 2021 2nd. See if we can get the extra pick this way without losng too much potential of the prospect. Too bad Kaliyev is all about offence, that guy could be a great if he finds the right attitude.

LA is in full rebuild, and they have a nice restocking of the cupboard under way.

Besides the fact they have the space, I don't see this trade making sense from their end.

18 Nov 2020 16:24:35
Marner is 23 and helps with full rebuild as there vets r aging nice to have a 25-27 year old stud to help newer younger players when they reach nhl level. Marner is perfect middle age to help connect the age gap kings will have between star players.

18 Nov 2020 19:55:25
I wouldn't call the kings a full rebuild. They have some young studs and some older vets who can still play at a high level. I see it more as a retool which could be sped up with a MM type player.

19 Nov 2020 17:45:51
LL: I was listening to Sirius XM NHL Channel's "GM Report Cards" and they were pretty bullish on the young prospect depth the Kings have assembled.

CRAIG: Marner's contract isn't viewed as a good-value deal, and while I take your point regarding his age, I don't see the kings making this deal.
