Throw kerfoot in the Arizona deal and I'm on board. It won't cost or should we pay a 1st for barbashev he's a ufa this year. I hope can get him but not at that cost.

I think
Arz says no.
NYI I doubt, but maybe.
Barbashev has only had one real good year, so I hope it wouldn't cost that much.

Barbashev is not worth a 1st round pick let alone adding Roni Hirvonen.
Perhaps a 2024 - 2nd plus Hirvonen would suffice.
If not Barbashev is too expensive for what he brings to the team.

Leafs need Kerfoot’s expiring cap space if they hope to resign Bunting next summer so I wouldn’t want to add him in any trade.

I am not convinced that Mayfield is in any way a significant upgrade over Holl so adding a 3rd round pick plus Abruzzese seems like an overpayment.

Lawson Crouse would be a great if not perfect addition to the Leafs top six.
I’m just not sure a 1st, Engvall and the often injured Robertson gets it done.
There is also the consideration of adding Crouse’s $4.3 million to Leafs already stretched cap.
Engvall’s $2.25 cap hit still leaves a $2 million dollar shortfall.

As much as I would I hate to trade him I think Knies would be required to get this deal done, particularly as he is a native son of Arizona and would become the face of the team.
So I have a counter proposal.

To Arizona : 2024 - 1st round pick, 2023 - 3rd round pick, Mathew Knies plus Matt Murray’s $4.7 million cap hit for 2023 - 2024, Engvall ($2.25)

To Leafs: Lawson Crouse ($4.3), Karl Vejmelka - goaltender ($2.725)

Total in: $7.025
Total out : $6.95

Crouse has 4 more years on his contract and Vejmelka has two more years after this season offering the Leafs some cap stability going forward.

biggest issue woth all the trades is you guys keep throwing names like Engvall and Holl WHO wants these players other teams also see leafs games they see what we see. Its no secret that these names you throw around all suck.

Murray also has a NMC correct? I believe he axed a deal to Buffalo, why would he agree to go to Arizona.
