The rumour is that to acquire Ekholm it will take a 1st, and "elite" prospect and a third piece. Do we even have an "elite" prospect? When I think elite prospect it is that one level below the Matthews/Marner types. A 5-12 pick in the past two drafts that looks like a lock to be a top 6 player.

2021 1st, Sandin or Robertson? and a third piece. Is that enough? Is Sandin or Robertson "elite"? They aren't in my mind. Plus, if that third piece isn't Kerfoot, then we need Nashville to retain and that is going to cost us big as Ekholm has a year left still.

According to the rumoured ask, We might be looking at 2021 1st, Kerfoot, Dermott and Roberston if we want Ekholm and that still might not do it.

Ekholm would be nice and truly add significantly to the leafs' current D. The leafs' first (2021) is going to be a late one, so I would give that up along with Liljegren, Kerfoot, and 2022 3rd rd
Go Leafs!

@gcolpitts. Sure, but that doesn't really equal the reported ask.

24 Mar 2021 18:32:11
Yes, it doesn't, and considering Ekholm has another year left after this makes him really attractive. Still, in my opinion, Robertson should not be included unless something else was in the deal from Nashville or another team? Perhaps make 2022 a 2nd rd pic instead of a third?

@pitts you won't get Ekholm for that and they won't be sending a pick back. A top 4 D on that contract during a c.v. is like finding the holy grail for a lot of teams.

I don't really want Ekholm as I'm not sure where he slots in and have never heard of him playing the right side consistently.

@LL. That is the point. Many were throwing out trade scenarios that were less than the now reported ask and insisting it would be enough. My point then when I said I didn't think it would be was based on what you are saying and also that Ekholm has another year left on his deal. There is no reason for Nash to trade him unless they get an overpay.
I still don't think we get Ekholm and Haula for Kerfoot, Dermott, Liljegren and a 1st like many insist. If the rumoured ask is true, it will take something like that and maybe better to just get Ekholm, never-mind having them give us Haula as well. I think it would be something like Kerfoot, Dermott, Robertson, 2021 1st, 2021 2nd and a B value prospect if you want both Ekholm and Haula.

Amirov Sandin 1st is the starting ask

If u want them to retain due to it being a 2 year retain leafs throw in Robertson

Leafs throw in kerfoot in place of Nashville retaining if they agree thus no Robertson

Every team wanting him will be offering significant pieces so Toronto needs to as well.

He's not the next Bobby Orr. take it easy.

It's not about what he is, it is about what they think they can get. They could wait until the off-season after the draft and probably get a good haul at his cap hit for another season. They have no need to trade him, a team will have to overpay if they want him.
