leafs 3rd islanders Abruzzese

Calgary Tanev

Leafs have as much chance at winning cup as anyone does. Tavares may have slipped a bit but Matthews Marner Nylander and Reilly are having there best seasons ever.

Is Bertuzzi ready to put the first 57 games behind him and play balls out the rest of the way. We have another 13 days to watch these 3 lines. On second line all Bertuzzi needs to do is hang around the net while Nylander and Domi set up plays.

The third line should be fine with McMann and Robertson next to Tavares.

Minten and Cowen should make leafs next year. Minton is more of a defensive center is Cowan who will pit up the bigger numbers of the two

It's inportant to remember that Matthews Marner Nylander are not in there prime yet. A second tier of forwards is Growing


This group earning almost mimimum will allow Leafs to plug in UFAs. Just Brad has to make the right choices. Bertuzzi will be a one and done with Leafs but he is fighting for his next contract he must turn on t(e jets which would really put Leafs over the top

Mackin sorry, but you're delusional.
A 3rd & C prospect does not get you Tanev in any world you live in.

2.) 27 Feb 2024 12:17:02
Calgary is hoping for at least a 1st for Tanev. This isn't even close.

3.) 27 Feb 2024 13:35:17
Leafs would have to add niemela and one of kamph or Jarnkok.

4.) 28 Feb 2024 03:43:03
Calgary has likely already received offers far superior to this one and said no!



20 Feb 2024 04:32:10
Arizona Lawson Crouse

Toronto Jarnknok 3 rd Islanders

Someone here mentioned Crouse in a trade the coyotes are paying him $4.5 million so there is some risk for the Leafs. A big player who can score goals 6-4 220 lbs . I think I would take a chance on him surround him with more talent he could take over for Tavares if leafs let him walk in a year.

David 1 Mackin

1.) 20 Feb 2024 09:05:34
Hehe. Try adding Minten or a 1st to that deal for them to even pick up the phone.

2.) 20 Feb 2024 09:42:33
Your joking, right?
Coyotes are insulted.
Crouse has already scored 20 goals so far this year and would be a 1st line LW for the Leafs alongside Matthews and Marner.
Jarnkrok and a 3rd won’t even get the Coyotes to pick up the phone.
Try Leafs 2024 - 1st round pick plus either Minten or Cowan to start the conversation.

3.) 20 Feb 2024 11:24:23
Minten, Jarnkrok, Niemela gets it done. Let Bertuzzi walk next year and the money works out fine.

4.) 20 Feb 2024 14:24:32
We have a crouse already in mcmann.

5.) 20 Feb 2024 15:33:57
McMann is no where near Lawson Crouse. Not yet anyway.

6.) 20 Feb 2024 18:20:13
So let’s trade away one of our top two prospects in minten and throw in niemela for a player in crouse that we will have in a year in mcmann…yup sounds great bob1965?.

7.) 20 Feb 2024 19:57:30
So what’s wrong with 2 of them MPH? I would take one on each line if I could. Give the kid someone to learn from.

8.) 20 Feb 2024 22:11:13
Thanks Clarky. Common sense is cool. Crouse improves the team immediately and for the rest of his contract. Less money than Bertuzzi…. Really kind of a no brainer.

9.) 21 Feb 2024 13:27:07
Add me to the list that would love to have Crouse and McMann. A left side of Crouse, McMann and Knies sounds very appealing with Marner, Nylander and? (atm) on the right side.

10.) 21 Feb 2024 21:52:49
Lol ok boys
The top prospect giveaway continues.

11.) 22 Feb 2024 14:27:12
MPH. I wasn't giving a thumbs up to the props shown. I was just saying I would love to have both McMann and Crouse if possible. I'm sure you would like to have them both. No?

12.) 22 Feb 2024 14:38:33
Nope I wouldn’t
Did Crouse suit up last night? ?

I noticed. Mcmann and Knies and Robertson ?

13.) 22 Feb 2024 17:55:16
Lol. I noticed him. I didn't notice McBain much and he has been my choice to chase for a few years. I'm not going off 1 game. You don't have to sell me of all people on McMann.



19 Feb 2024 11:44:07
LEAFS trade Jarnknok 3 rd islanders 2 nd 2026

Calgary Tanev

I'm basically looking at what the Leafs paid for McCabe and Jafferty both had term Tanev doesn't have

The forwards I'm not messing around with lines anymore if I'm Keefe. I'm rolling three lines and see if we get consistent scoring . The forth line I'm making as strong as I can as well but the forth line to me is tradebait

Knies Matthews Marner
Bertuzzi Tavares Nylander
McMann Domi Nylander
Gregor kampf Jarnknok

You guys don't understand there is a second waive of talent coming and when you mix it with the core now it's going to be very strong team


Robinson and Knies have arrived but I think the next four are near GREBENKIN has really picked up his scoring the last 15 games he arrives North America next season then we see how he does with marlies.

David 1 Mackin

1.) 19 Feb 2024 13:18:06
Thats a great strategy to get a 2nd rounder. Add Bertuzzi this could make even more enticing you never know maybe anther late pick.

2.) 19 Feb 2024 13:22:47
weathermackin. Do you realize you left Robertson out of your lineup?
Never thought I'd see the day. lol.

3.) 19 Feb 2024 13:41:17
You also have nylander playing on 2 lines.

4.) 19 Feb 2024 14:04:34
Johnny67. True, he also has Jarnkrok who he traded.

5.) 19 Feb 2024 18:00:15
Robertson 3 Rd line although things look dead through one period of St. Louis game.

6.) 20 Feb 2024 09:58:04
Ha ha ha!

You have Nylander on two lines and Jarnkrok whom you traded as Leafs 4th line RW.



17 Feb 2024 05:13:28
Leafs trade 3rd from islanders McMann Jarnknok

Calgary trade Tanev .

Ckps 1976

It's tough situation for the Leafs because Treliving had a Terrance off season . The only decent moves he made was Domi and Gregor

So the question becomes what do you want to do blow assets hoping you win a few rounds and the cup or do you spend smaller assets and take your shot again in free agency 2024 and maybe Minton and Cowan can crack the lineup next season .

The Leafs could catch a beak and play Boston in first round. They have been struggling and I think Florida wins division and Leafs edge out Tampa for third in division.

When your in playoffs and you get goaltending plus you have Matthews Marner Nylander Tavares and Reilly playing well anything can happen

I'm just not willing to spend the first round pick Minten Cowan and Niemela . Also I'm not trading Holmberg Robertson or Knies. As that group get older and you add them to core this team might be unstoppable .

So treliving must be cautions at deadline and whatever else happens he can't mess up in free agency again . Resign Max Domi and let's hope Bertuzzi can be what he was for Boston in last years playoffs .

So I'm finding best D and third line forward I can on limited assets and see what happens

David 1 Mackin

1.) 17 Feb 2024 12:33:13
Domi was a decent move? Yikes. Benoit and Martin Jones were “decent” moves. Free agency is meant to land good players that impact your team. Domi has done nothing that Holmberg couldn’t do for less than half the money.

2.) 17 Feb 2024 14:00:09
stop hating on bertuzzi, hes the most snake bitten player in the league this year. hes had so many incredible chances that its mind boggling how it hasn't gone it the net. hes one of the best guys out there game in and gam eout without the puck. just hasn't gotten any rewards for it. domi has been better since hes started playing center, but we done have a good 3c we can use to move him into the top 6. i actually think hed do very well on a line like:

tavares, domi, marner.

but wed need a good center coming in to take the 3C position and that we dont have. maybe wennberg (sea), eller or carter (pitts), dowd (wash), sundquist (stl)



16 Feb 2024 08:45:00
Leafs just don't have much trade capital

Leafs trade Bertuzzi Jarnknok Kampf

Calgary Tanev

No matter where the leafs put Bertuzzi he is a liability . I dont see any positives in him maybe he could do better in Calgary. The Flames could resign him at a bargain discount price 2 million . Jarnknok and Kampf could be traded offseason in Calgary as they rebuild .

The Leafs can't trade players below as they represent low contracts that he Leafs need


This large group of prospects are what the Leafs are waiting on right now they have no secondary scoring

David 1 Mackin

1.) 16 Feb 2024 11:05:16
Calgary is rebuilding.
They do not want a non scoring, 29 year old UFA (Bertuzzi), - 32 year old, 3rd line right wing (Jarnkrok) and a 29 year old 4th line center (Kampf) .
They want picks, prospects and/ or young players coming back in any trade.
Particularly when there are numerous teams interested in Tanev and willing to make a more attractive offer.

2.) 16 Feb 2024 13:05:48
Even if Calgary wanted to do this, which I doubt, they don't have $6.5M in cap space to take this on.

3.) 16 Feb 2024 14:50:22
Flames have zero interest in this deal. Between Brodie, Klingberg, Bertuzzi and domi…. Leafs have almost 18 million dropping off the cap next year. Plenty of money to sign Tanev and Hanifan (if he will sign in Canada), and more. got to sacrifice some future and go now.

1st, Niemela, Steeves, Minten, 3rd, Jarnkrok, Reaves, kamph, for Hanifan and Tanev with 35% retention on both.

Rielly, Tanev
Hanifan, Lilygren
McCabe, Brodie.

Leafs trade Bertuzzi

New York islanders 2 nd

Randy 2

I'm glad to see Cowen is on ur no trade list and I hope Minten and Robertson are there as well along with McMann.

Nice move the leafs drop Tavares down to third line between McMann and Robertson

Nylander can almost carry second line by himself but Domi is great set up guy

David 1 Mackin

1.) 23 Feb 2024 14:13:08
Wrong side for trades. So give Robo a kiss and a hug good bye because he about to be traded. Bert is going to play in playoffs so stop trading him.



22 Feb 2024 09:42:56
Leafs trade Jarnknok Kampf 3 Rd islanders

Calgary Tanev


You want to trade Marner 18 points last 10 games. He finds Matthews all o er the ice Matthews may end up with 80 goals.

Leaf's need tanev and it's not expensive.

1st round pics

Next year all these guys are better. Why trade any of them

David 1 Mackin

1.) 22 Feb 2024 10:12:00
Because there’s no proof that any of those guys will be better next year and you said yourself Matthews might score 80 so how do you not go all in now worry about the future down the road.

2.) 22 Feb 2024 13:27:30
Trade Robertson and Niemela. No room in the organization for another small, soft top 9 winger. We have many of those. Get some D.



22 Feb 2024 09:18:35
Leafs trade Jarnknok 3 Rd islanders

Calgary Tanev

Robertson was robbed of a goal if it's offside it's by an inch.

The line of is working really well.

Mcmann Tavaras Robertson

The only problem child in top 9 is Bertuzzi. But Nylander and Domi can carry that second line until Bertuzzi finally gets going.

With this top 9 setup the Leafs don't need a top 6 forward although if injuries come to top 9 the Leafs do t have much backup maybe Steeves

But I'm not trading the core Matthews Marner Nylander Tavaras Reilly can carry leaf's long way. Now we have McMann and Robertson chipping in almost every game.

Do Jarnknok and Kampf fit anymore next season that cap space can bring more than their value. So if they are not traded now they are gone in off-season. Do not trade anything below

1st round picks

1.) 22 Feb 2024 10:13:24
Unless you’re bringing back shutdown guys I don’t see how they can move off these players.

2.) 22 Feb 2024 13:39:17
I have news for you Mackin. Leafs are never going anywhere close to the Cup with the Core four on this team. Nobody is leading anyone anywhere with all your money tied up in offence. It’s like Leaf fans have short term memory loss. They show us the proof every year in the playoffs and you still want to run with the core 4? We have winning records when Rielly, Matthews, Marner, JT and/ or Nylander out of the lineup and it’s not even close. They need more blue collared all heart guys that aren’t asking for 3M more than they are worth.
Mackin, come playoffs Robertson will go into his little shell when it gets physical while Bertuzzi will be in the middle of it. Trying to put a team together to battle Florida not compete at battle of the blades dance party.

3.) 23 Feb 2024 01:30:47
Clarky. You do the news and Mackin does the weather. Lol.

4.) 23 Feb 2024 14:16:04
I can do weather too. A blizzard of Bertuzzi trades. Unrealistic gusts of line combinations. Heavy downpours of cries to keep Robertson.

5.) 23 Feb 2024 17:18:27
Ckarky. LOL. As you say, preaching to the choir.



28 Dec 2023 09:17:29

Here is a trade u might like

Arizona trade clear cap chase dollars

Leafs get 7 putay even they only have one pututoy

With enough blue pills we can win the cup.

I'm not saving Dollars and running my team cheap I'm going for the cup.

Now you may think it's better to get the money but we only have so much time to win the cup.

Who out there out there are chasing dollars
Who prefers the putay

What's with all the sexual references?

You may want to stop taking the blue pills and take a red pill.

2.) 28 Dec 2023 18:04:22
Can a moderator step in here and ban weathermackin. i agree all this vulgarity with sexual references. just getting weirder and weirder!

3.) 29 Dec 2023 00:21:49
And if I say Nylander had a rubbish game I get censored lol.



23 Dec 2023 04:33:10
Leafs trade Samsonov

Marlies Jones


The trade above is nonsense. The question is when WOLL is back what do you do .

Would Edmonton claim Samsonov as I'm sure Edmonton would claim JONES ?

If leafs waive SAMSONOV they can rebuild him if he is not claimed . But how much capstace do the LEAFS save by demoting him?

Samsonov can be great or stink. But I think Jones and Samsonov are equal. Maybe JONES is a bit better ? If Samsonov is waived he gives Leafs lots of cap space. Over 145 NHL games SAMSONOV has a 90.4 % teams may want him for backup

So it must end up WOLL & JONES . Teams would have to have plenty of cap space for Samsonov so I doubt he ever gets claimed .

Jones you would lose in a heartbeat !

David 1 Mackin

1.) 23 Dec 2023 05:45:15
Oh weathermackin. leafs can send Jones down anytime and not worry about losing him cause he was called up on an emergency basis . did you not see that in the forecast?

2.) 23 Dec 2023 15:12:13
Looks like Loxley is in the calm at the eye of the storm while the weathermackin got hit with an Alberta clipper that blurred his vision.

Like leafs trade it didn’t cost much. I, more interested what the team is next year they have 2 thinks going for them next season cap space. And young players. l think Leafs are much netter next season.

Summer target I spend on Hanfin . I think the price is 7.5 to 8.5 . This is why trading all the young players was crazy as they let us really upgrade team starting next year.

Next year

Robertson 3 years x $1.5
Knies $925k
Cowen $935k
Minton $935k
McMann 3 years x $2.0
Holmberg $800 k
Niemela $860 k
Woll $770k
Jones 2 years x $1.5
Kampf traded
Jarnkrok traded
Reaves $1.35
Domi probably walk
Bertuzzi probably walk but he is playing really well
Liljegren 3 years $2.5
Reilly $7.5
Hanifin 7 years 8.5
Brodie walks
Giordano retires
McCabe $2.0
Benoit 3 years $2.0
Lagesson 2 years $1.5
Timmins $1.1
Matthews $13.25
Nylander $11.5
Marner $10.9
Tavares $11.0

Total cost roughly $81.43

Total projected cap 88 million so leafs could add a few midrange forwards or circle back to Domi and Bertuzzi next year Leafs are much better.

Nonsense if McCabe and Lafferty cost a first a second and two nothing pieces
How does TAanev cost a first. Remember McCade had 2.5 years remaining plus Mc Chicago took back 2 million each year on McCabe contract

McCabe and Tanev are equal talents Leafs offer islanders 3 rd and Abruzzese that’s it.

If Leaf's trade 2 players they have 37 million worth of cap space before the cap goes higher so it's really 41 million

Jarnknok traded
Kampf traded
Brodie walks
Bertuzzi walks
Domi walks
Klingberg walks
Muzzin walks
Murray walks
Samsonov walks.

You can't be serious threading Marner the guy is top 5 in points last 5 years and is making oust for a 100 point season

How many guys pull in 100 points each year I think he hit 99 twice.

Keep it real please and doesn't Robertson one timer remind you of Matthews.
