Leafs trade Rielly, Holl, Liljegren
Edmonton trades RNH, Bear

Klefbom is hurt. Edmonton could really use another puck moving LHD, and Rielly is one of the best. He would suit their system perfectly.

(Rielly - RNH) + Liljegren = (Bear - Holl)

Hyman/ Matthews/ Marner
Mikheyev/ Tavares/ Nylander
Kerfoot/ RNH/ Vesey
Spezza/ Thornton/ Simmonds/ Barabanov

Muzzin/ Bear
Dermott/ Brodie
Sandin/ Lehtonen/ Bogosian.

Not a bad deal at all. Not much to add now leafs have 7 forwards to protect (if the resign Hyman and RNH before next offseason) and 3 D. This deal makes that work out pretty good. If RNH doesn’t fit well they just let him go to free agency and still have Bear replacing Rielly long term.

The more I think about it the more I’m intrigued by this deal

Well done.

This one is interesting but really risky for the Leafs. RNH could walk in a year and do we really know what Bear is yet? He could continue to develop or he could be one of these guys who has a pretty strong start and as other teams figure him out, he turns out to be a 5-6 guy and nothing more. You could though flip RNH at the TDL and try and get a good haul for as part of the plan.

Cap Space would be an issue, assuming Bear gets more than 1.8M coming out of his ELC.

Also, Bear is worth more than Holl and Lil, so I don't really see the fit necessarily.

The fit is Rielly is a 1RHD they desperately need now more than ever since Klefbom is out for the season.

Bear - (Holl + Liljegren) = (Rielly - RNH)

You might be right. Bear is more valuable than Holl and Liljegren. But Rielly is more valuable than pending RNH, who is a pending UFA. Top line defensemen are more valuable than middle six players. Much more valuable. And given that Rielly has an extra year on his contract, he is significantly more valuable than RNH.

I stand by this proposal. If anything, I think it favours Edmonton. Rielly is a much better defenseman than Bear, and RNH as a rental doesn’t put us over the top. We also lose our best RHD prospect here, which weakens our depth further.

HOCKEYLUVR - I see your reasoning, but still don't see that trade happening.
