LW/RW William Nylander
* Age 24
* Cap hit: $6,962,366
* UFA 2024

G Frederik Andersen
* Age 31
* Cap hit: $5,000,000
* Pending UFA 2021

LD Travis Dermott
* Age 24
* Cap hit: $874,125k
* Pending RFA 2021


G Jonathan Quick
* Age 35
* Cap hit: $ 5,800,000
* UFA 2023

LD Olli Maatta
* Age 26
* Cap hit: $3,333,225
* UFA 2022

LW Alex Iafallo
* Age 27
* Cap hit: $2,425,000
* Pending UFA 2021

To Toronto:
* $11,558,225 salary cap from LA
* Jonathan Quick without a doubt gives the Maple Leafs a true winner in goal, and if healthy Quick gives the Leafs their best chance to win a Cup with the current core and style of play. He is also reunited with Jack Campbell as Toronto's goalie tandem for the next two seasons. With the Leafs in win-or-bust mode right now, nobody fits the situation better than Quick.
* Olli Maatta at a $3.33 cap hit for another full season and a young age gives the Leafs a strong stay-at-home type of defenseman with already significant success winning in the East with the Pittsburgh Penguins. A defensive corps of Brodie, Reilly, Maatta, Muzzin, Holl and Bogosian is significantly better and hopefully is enough to make some sort of serious playoff push.
* Alex Iafallo adds another decent gritty depth forward for the Leafs (better than Vesey, Galchenyuk or anyone else the Leafs are thinking about), and as a pending UFA, the Leafs could think to re-sign the Western NY forward in case one of more of Thornton/Simmonds/Boyd/Spezza do not return next season.
* Toronto saves $1,242,266 in cap space used to help re-sign Zach Hyman.

To Los Angeles:
* $12,800,491 salary cap from Toronto.
* The Kings get much needed young speed and skill in William Nylander to add to elite prospects to build around and have cap space to use here (expecting someone like Carter or maybe Brown to be selected by Seattle).
* Freddy Andersen returns to southern California to mentor and share the net with younger Cal Petersen. Could be an excellent tandem if LA chooses to extend Freddy for 2-3 years, maybe $3.5/$4 million cap hit?
* Travis Dermott adds another young gun to an already young and dynamic blue line. Allows Toronto to give Sandin or Liljegren a shot at cracking lineup next season on bottom pair. Although Dermott plays too risky of a style he could benefit playing in a structured Kings system and help him settle down a bit and add some playmaking ability on the blue line. He would also get a better and fairer arbitration hearing as a pending RFA.

The Leafs have this season and maybe the next two seasons to win something with this core. Someone has to go in order to extend Zach Hyman who I believe for the last few years next to Austin Matthews is the most important go-to guy on this team and way more valuable than Nylander, Tavares and anyone else in the top group.

Outside leafs prying away Gibson somehow Quick probably is the best available guy to tandem with Campbell

Your trade and reasons for it make sense

Great solid deal for both teams.

Much rather have Anderson then Quick, Nylander then Iafollo and Dermott and his contract then Maatta. Very surprising to me that anyone believes this is a good trade for the Leafs.

I can't believe anyone would pick Nylander at 8 million over Iafollo at 2.5. You have obviously never see Iafollo play.
I would take Quick, winner of 2 Stanley cups over Anderson, who has never won a playoff round and is leaving this off season anyways.
Maatta is a much better defenseman than Dermott.
Someone has to go in order to extend Zach Hyman.

I've been waiting to see someone post about Hyman on how important he is. i know it's been a few years but Matthews wouldn't have gotten 40 goals if Hyman wasn't there. rewatch all of Matthews 40 goals during his rookie season but don't focus on Matthews scoring those goals. keep your eyes on number 11 in the background then you'll see what I'm talking about.
