Tor; jarnkrok, Timmins, 1st

Car: pesce.


1.) 18 Sep 2023 15:04:40
I think you're looking at more for Pesce.

2.) 18 Sep 2023 15:36:16
Nice prop. Not bad. I think Carolina would rather move Skjei though.

3.) 20 Sep 2023 01:08:52
I think Hurricanes are looking for more top 6 offense if they trade Pesce.
Neither Jarnkrok nor Timmins give them that.
Plus the 1st round pick will be a very late selection in June 2024 and will not play for the team for another 3 - 4 years.
Can’t see Waddell being moved by this offer.



03 Jul 2023 13:48:00
Bertuzzi Mathews knies
Domi Tavares marner
Jankrok kampf Lafferty
Reaves holmberg ?

Reilly Mccabe
Brodie klingberg
Giordano Liljgren


This will be the line up in addition to who ever they get for nylander. A bit toigher lineup.


1.) 04 Jul 2023 01:34:18
Knies is a rookie left wing.
Why put him at right wing on the 1st line and set him up for possible failure?
For the past 2 years Keefe has been trying to shoehorn Kampf into the 3rd line center slot and it has been an abject disaster.
Kampf is at best a 4th line center.



28 Mar 2023 16:40:25
Playoff line up

Jarnkrok Mathews Bunting
Kerfoot Tavares Marner
Lafferty O'Reilly Nylander
Aston-reese kampf accari

Reilly Brodie
Giordano Mccabe
Gustavson schenn


What do ypu gguys think?


1.) 29 Mar 2023 00:58:22
I have always felt that playing Nylander on the 3rd line is a waste of his talents.
Plus, Matthews should be playing with an elite winger not two, 3rd line players.
I am not sold on Gustafsson so I would prefer to see McCabe at LHD with Holl or Schenn and Giordano with Liljegren which has been a very good pairing for the Leafs in the regular season.
Yes, I know, Liljegren has been less than stellar lately but Giordano has the ability to fix that.

2.) 29 Mar 2023 14:22:40
McCabe dosen't crack the starting lineup?

3.) 30 Mar 2023 12:15:48
I get the 3 line idea, but I would do it differently.
My starting lineup atm would be.

Jarnkrok Matthews Marner
Bunting Tavares Nylander
Lafferty O'Reilly Acciari
Aston-reese Kampf Kerfoot

Rielly Brodie
McCabe Holl
Gio Schenn


4.) 30 Mar 2023 17:05:18
@RLF that's the 3 lines I've wanted since the TDL as well.

I'm more on board with stacking the top 6 against Boston, as I think there's a better chance Mathews line and Bergeron line cancel eachother out.

I'd like to see 3 lines grind down Tampa. They aren't the youngest team and they've played a tonne of hockey in the past 3 years.

5.) 30 Mar 2023 18:29:59
I really like when the leafs run 7 defenceman and kinda put their forward lines in a blender. Makes it extremely hard to defend against and gives your big guy more playing time. Also keeps your defenceman fresh and can ride the hot hand/ s.

Jarnkrok Mathews Nylander
Bunting Tavares Marner
Lafferty O'Reilly Acciari
Kampf Aston-Reese

Take your pick on Lafferty or Kerfoot. I think Lafferty brings more to the table come playoffs. I also think Mathews brings the most out of Nylander the same way Marner does Tavares.

6.) 30 Mar 2023 22:36:44
Jarnkrok Matthews marner
Tavares O’reilly nylander
Bunting accari lafferty
Kerfoot kampf zar

Brodie McCabe
Gio holl
Reilly schenn

I’d try this for game 1 that top line has been driving the offence of late Tavares was better on the wing imo and the third line being an energy line as for the defence I’ve like McCabe so far and it seems like keefe is gonna stick with him and Brodie gio holl have been ok but we have seen them elevate their game and Reilly schenn round it out for me Reilly should be sheltered in the d zone and I think the leafs need schenns physical play schenn plays at home liljgren plays on the road. I would say knies may not play but if they need some offence he might draw in.

7.) 01 Apr 2023 10:22:14
Swap Marner and Nylander and I'm fully on board. The game/ s of Tavares O'Reilly and Marner together looked amazing. O'Reilly hat trick if I'm not mistaken.

8.) 02 Apr 2023 03:59:08
What's with the Bunting hate all of a sudden?

He was better than Hyman a few months ago and now we all say he's bottom 6?



28 Nov 2022 01:08:17
Fla: Radko Gudas

Toronto: pierre engvall.


1.) 28 Nov 2022 02:10:21
I don't see anyone, giving you anything, for Engvall or Kerfoot right now.

2.) 28 Nov 2022 12:41:46
I don't think Kerfoot and Engvall have no value, it just isn't as much as it was previously. I just don't see where FLA would need Engvall over Gudas atm. I'm sure they would love to move Hornqvist, but I'd rather have Engvall, especially considering cap hits.

3.) 28 Nov 2022 18:04:04
@RLF what do you see as value for them?

I can't see anything beyond a 5th.

4.) 28 Nov 2022 18:59:09
The problem is that Florida are looking to activate duclair to their active roster. So they need to bring back an ahl level return, pick or waiver exempt prospect.

5.) 29 Nov 2022 16:28:31
@LL. There value is in a trade for an existing contract. imo
For a pick, the other team also has to eat the contract and cap hit. I would look to trade them for players that are underutilized where that team has depth in that position. Why I said STL for Mikkola. Also why I throw Trenin out there a lot. They won't have much value for a pick alone.



09 Oct 2022 21:56:32
Looks like engvall will be od man out.

Tor: Engvall

Ari: 6th

Bunting Matthews Marner
Malgin Tavares Nylander
Jankrok kampf kerfoot
Kabul aston-reese.


1.) 10 Oct 2022 01:10:48
Bunting - Matthews - Marner
Robertson - Tavares - Nylander
Engvall - Holmberg - Jarnkrok
Aston-Reese - Kampf - Aube-Kuble

Keep Engvall and ship out Kerfoot as Engvall’s cap hit is only $2.25 while Kerfoot is earning $3.5
Holmberg is an NHL rookie but has been playing against professionals for the past two years in the Swedish Elite League.
He has acquitted himself well winning their playoff MVP and according to Keefe has had an excellent camp.

So, trev isn't going to do anything else it looks like.

Bertuzzi Mathews knies
Nylander Tavares marner
Lafferty domi jarnkrok
Reaves kampf holmberg

Reilly Mccabe
Brodie klingberg
Giordano Liljgren


Not sure what to do about the cap. Solid lineup though. What do you guys think?


1.) 13 Aug 2023 13:44:31
I don't think it looks too bad. The D is a concern and I would have different lines and D pairings, but if we start the year with this lineup, so be it.

Knies Matthews Marner
Bertuzzi JT Nylander
Domi Kampf Jarnkrok
Lafferty Gambrell Reaves

Rielly Brodie
McCabe Liljegren
Gio Klingberg


The problem is, The Leafs can't start with this lineup as they are still about $2M over the Cap.

2.) 13 Aug 2023 15:16:26
@RLF Agreed, they can only have a 20 man roster with the players they have now. So more than likely Timmins & possibly McMann or Gambrell would be lost to waivers.

I would keep D the same, but put Domi at 3C even though Tre said he would be a winger. Domi has played more C in his career than wing.

Bertuzzi Matthews Nylander
Knies Tavares Marner
McMann Domi Jarnkrok
Lafferty Kampf Reaves

Rielly Brodie
McCabe Lily
Gio Klingberg


3.) 13 Aug 2023 18:15:55
@Tags. I had thought about Domi at centre as well. The issue is that Domi isn't really a very good centreman. Up until recently, he struggled on the dot. He also isn't very physical, he doesn't block a lot of shots and he isn't very big. 3rd line is usually a defensively responsible line and I would worry about Domi as my 3C, but not worry as much on the wing. He may make the top 6 as a winger.
Maybe they see McMann and Knies on the wings with Kampf down the middle. Who knows.

4.) 13 Aug 2023 19:10:59
@RLF you're right, who knows. Your guess is as good as mine.
I'd like the 3rd line to be a sheltered scoring line and maybe they can switch Lafferty and McMann so they have 2 good defensive players with Domi, who can both play offensively as well.
I don't think the 3rd and 4th lines will be set-in stone throughout the game/ season. I'm sure Keefe will interchange lines depending on situation.
I understand the addition of Reaves, but he really doesn't fit with the
types of players we have.
An ideal defensive line easily should be:
Lafferty Kampf Jarnkrok
Reaves on this line makes most sense to me
McMann Lafferty Reaves.



03 Jul 2023 02:49:56
Knies Mathews marner
Bertuzzi tavares nylander

1.) 03 Jul 2023 03:41:10
I think they see Domi as 3C and Kampf as 4C, but that's just me.

Throw domi in at 3C or 2LW and you got it.

Right now

Jankrok Mathews Marner
Knies Tavares nylander
Lafferty kampf Reaves
? ? ?

Reilly brodie
Mccabe klingberg
Giordano Liljgren



1.) 02 Jul 2023 02:29:15
Yep. That's the lineup. Except that 3rd line is the worst 3rd line in hockey and actually a 4th line.

Samsonov is coming back as well, he was qualified.

That defence really scares me. I know we all liked to hate on Justin Holl for his deficiencies, but he's still better in his own end than Klingberg (that hurts to say) .

I'd really like to know what the plan is on the PK. Other than Brodie and possibly McCabe I don't want any of them trying to kill penalties against top teams.

2.) 02 Jul 2023 06:15:32
This is a line up destined to not be in the top 8 in the east. Murray and Woll as your goalies. 8 d men all who stink at actual defending. and the fwds well when you have to pencil Reaves in as your 3rd line winger you are in deep doo doo. Not to mention they have 1 true left winger currently. OH yeah almost forgot . After wasting that $$$ on Kampf Reaves and the ridiculous 4.15M on Klingberg (An older version of Rielly) they have 480K left to spend. SO far Treliving I thought I'd never say it but I'm missing Dubas a little bit here.

3.) 02 Jul 2023 06:19:18
just because Samsonov id qualified does not mean hes coming back NOT EVEN CLOSE. all it does is it guaranteed he would not be an UFA on July 1st. A team can give him an offer sheet just now the leafs can match and on their own still negotiate. If the $$$ can not be negotiated upon Samsonov sits and awaits a trade .

4.) 02 Jul 2023 08:31:48
@1967 I suggest you read up on the CBA. Sammy is not eligible for an offer sheet anymore, nor did he receive one when he was.

Samsonov is coming back, but the rest is an issue.

The way Liljgren is playing i think he would bring in a huge return. Way better than myers. Schenn as the add in?
They could get him for a 4th at the trade deadline.
