Like the target
I think leafs need to take another salary back
Cizikas?
And send a goalie prospect like Woll?

That would be sweet but the chances of Lou trading away his #1 goaltender and arguably #2 defenseman for a soft Right Wing, a 3rd line LW/ C and Sandin are slim and none!

There is absolutely no way that Canucks trade their goalie of the next decade.
What you are offering from the Leafs would barely be enough to get you Miller.
Don’t forget there are 31 other teams out there looking at upgrading their lineup.
Rangers can offer a much superior package of youth and prospects and are said to have a serious interest in having Miller rejoin the team after the fateful trade with Tampa that sent both Miller and McDonough to the Lightning.

Time for a new song for Leaf goals, enough Hall and Oates.

New one: Blue Oyster Cult - Don’t Fear the Reaper.

All set and ready for opening faceoff!

I'd take slide it in by whitesnake first.

That would be a good one Randy.

Regarding the trade below for Miller and Demko. I know Vancouver isn’t planning on trading Demko but no one is untouchable.
Toronto can’t win if the current goaltending continues so why no upgrade to go for it this year. The Blue Jays won in 92&93 when they went after significant players. Raptors won by trading a star, DeRosan to get Leonard. Why it strengthen the most important position on a team and don’t worry too much about the future. If you can’t get Demko go all in on the best goaltender you can get.
You may have to add a top prospect to the above trade.

I don't think Demko is the move. You might be able to target a top goalie but not on a team that sees themselves as contenders going forward.

After watching the Leafs get manhandled by the Rangers, I think Dubas needs to go all in on getting two solid defence men. They are in a win now zone and if they have to unload the farm go for it. They cannot win with this defence and I don't think one will make them significantly better. They need to have Muzzin and Sandin as their third pair along with Reilly and Brodie as number 1 pair. That means trading for two Bonifield top 4.
I would suggest Chychrun and Oleksiak.
I'm not knowledgeable enough to put together a fair trade for these two so if someone wants to pick up this thread and put a solid trade together, please help.

Muzzin wasn't even playing in the game. Not sure why the Muzzin hate is coming out now lol.


2.) 20 Jan 2022 18:20:43
Muzzin has been bad all season. He didn’t get better by not playing against the Rangers.


3.) 20 Jan 2022 20:31:23
He hasn't been horrible. He also hasn't been Muzzin level though. I think the bigger thing we learned is what's up with Holl. Muzzin isn't in top form and Holl collapses.

Lawson Crouse is another Ritchie. I’d rather keep Engvall, he can at least kill penalties.

DGC07

1.) 01 Jan 2022 00:32:51
First off crouse plays 2 minutes a game on the PK
When he is on PK for a faceoff he starts 97.9% of the time in DZone meaning he is on top unit for his team. So sayinv he doesn’t kill penelties is big lack of research on your part.

Crouse hits close to 3 opponents a game and when he is out on a faceoff for a game he starts 60+% of those in the DZone meaning he is trusted by his coach.

Last game he got 2g 2a playing with Larson as his center. The coach put Kessel with them for regular shifts but put moser with them after a PP instead of Kessel and whenever a DZone faceoff was being taken by them. It worked out great for all 4 guys but not so much for team in and 8-7 SO loss. Crouse +2 in game not bad defensively.

Throughout his career crouse has never been the play driver. He does not do so well when coaches put him in that spot. However when put with offensive skilled players although not that quick he takes smart routes to keep up with faster skilled players and creates space while having great JVR like hands thus putting up points and complimenting the skill guys.

Yes he can't drive his own line . Many coaches have tried and failed. Crouse needs better skill around him, he plays to his line mates not line mates play off him. If his line mates are skilled he seems to fit in. If his linemates suck he plays at their level.

I think getting crouse would be a smart move. Put him with Tavares so he will excell. When in the DZone for faceoffs put kerfoot with the 2. When I. The Ozone for a faceoff put nylander with them. Have him PK with kerfoot and it might just work out.

Bottom line Crouse isn’t another Ritchie. Ritchie is offence first one demensional. Meaning if he doesn’t get any offence going he can’t do much more. while crouse is defence first one dimensional meaning if he can’t get his defensive game going he best be off the ice. Ritchie is much more dominant offensively when at his best than crouse so his defensive liabilities gets covered up. Crouse May never have the upside offensively than Ritchie but at least when crouse isn’t putting up numbers he plays steady defence. Crouse worst is still nhl level while Ritchie might not make your local beer league team at his worst. Oh and crouse plays hard even if he isn’t getting top minutes while Ritchie seems to just slug it up just filling space if he doesn’t get top 6 minutes. Leafs should try to take crouse if Arizona will hand him over.

Unless Nino has developed into the next McDavid over the off season, I’m pretty sure we didn’t screw up. He maybe helpful but not getting him is definitely not a screw up.

I really like the first two + Sign Kadri, trade with Chicago through Columbus. Those are totally believable.

He may be gun shy but I’m sure he wouldn’t try to trade Dermott to two different teams.

I like this trade. Fooling around on the edges is not going to help. Leafs need to get tougher to play against. This improves the second line both on offence and defence. It also Leafs room for a defenceman.

Domi would barely make the Leafs 4th line and st a cost of over 5 million. No thanks.
