Leafs trade Kerfoot, Hållander, 2nd
Columbus trades Foligno (50%), Savard (50%)

Not sure where Savard fits on this team. But they can make him fit I’m sure. Especially if they keep running an 11-7 system come playoffs.

The retention on the Islanders deal cost a 1st, so this is a low ball offer imo. I wouldn’t be upset if the cost was a 1st though.

A younger signed 2 more years for under 4 million player is worth more than an over 30 upcoming ufa in this cap freeze works

Hallinder and a 2nd has to cover the retention.

I think Savard has been traded to TB.

Looks like Tampa got savard

Foligno would be a nice pick up.

Kerfoot is addition by subtraction.

Besides, his cap would need to be included to balance salaries.

Leafs trade Andersen, Abramov, 3rd
Vegas trades Lehner

For the same price, Lehner has got to be better than Andersen. He’s signed 5 years. Which means Campbell is exposed.

If you don’t think value is fair, then use your imagination. I have a hard time valuing goalies.

I’ve seen three Vegas games this year. And all three they wore shiny gold helmets. They looked ridiculous and annoying. C3PO kept coming to mind. Are they wearing these every game? It is the ugliest helmet I’ve ever seen and distracts me from the game.

Leafs trade Nylander, pick/ prospect
Sharks trade Kane

You will have to use your imagination on which picks/ prospects need to be added. Valuation tends to be touchy. I’m pretty sure I would be willing to pay a lot more in this deal than most.

The happiest day in my life as a Leafs fan so far was the day Blake and Toskala got traded for Giguere. Giguere sucked. But I didn’t care. I was so happy to see Blake and Toskala gone that the return was of no consequence.

But that day might actually be surpassed the day Nylander gets traded. I can’t think of a single Leafs player in all the years since Jason Blake that irritates me on a seemingly nightly basis as much as Nylander does.

Call it my negative bias perception. I’m only seeing what I want to see. Too bad I’m seeing a lot of what I don’t want to see coming from Nylander.

He’s not going to change. He’s a one dimensional player that can’t be trusted in important situations late in close games. He is a floater that doesn’t engage in the play or provide support. He doesn’t.

Trading Nylander would make little impact on this team’s ability to win a cup. At best, he is a scapegoat should the Leafs lose in the playoffs again. At worst, he is the reason why they lose again, thus deserving of being the scapegoat.

I don't think Nylander is the reason this team hasn't been performing well lately. I'm pointing straight at MM, AM and JT right now. 33 million needs to produce at an accelerated pace. AM has been incredibly dry lately. If he is still injured then he needs to sit until he's healthy because he doesn't look right.

MM has had a good season but without someone to score he doesn't have the same impact.

JT man. What happened?

Nylander is definitely a part of the problem right now. I don't think anyone can argue that. He is only a part of it though and I don't actually think Kane is the answer right now. I watched a Sharks game not long ago and man is that team lost. They look like they're on a morning skate for entire games. Kane could just be demotivated or he could be letting his off-ice issues creep into his game.

I would stay clear of him personally.

2.) 26 Mar 2021 10:49:13
Jt is contrantly being double teamed because nylander only needs half an eye on him. It's not often I see Tavares with any space.

3.) 26 Mar 2021 11:17:19
I agree with hrenklin Nylander just doesn’t show that he’s a threat enough you see flashes of it but that’s it but with Kane’s situation I don’t think the leafs would touch him I mean San Jose was thinking about voiding his contract I definitely think that if we still have Robertson come the off season the leafs should deal Nylander.

4.) 26 Mar 2021 12:37:42
I wouldn't trade a pick for Kane. Toxic.

Kerfoot on the 4th line just drives home my point. He’s not a capable centre. He’s already been replaced by Engvall.

I expect Kerfoot to be traded. He’s the stereotypical player Dubas will move. A middle six player making more than league minimum.

All Dubas sees right now is a guy making $3.5M that can be replaced by a guy make $1.2M.

Leafs trade Kerfoot
Dallas trades Oleksiak, 3rd

Oleksiak brings something to the table no other Leafs defenseman can.

This trade provides cap space that opens the door for other trades after (Dermott for example) .


1.) 21 Mar 2021 20:58:17
No offense but Pierre Engvall reminds me of a human giraffe on skates. Don't know what it is other than on TV he looks rather disproportionate. Also, Alex Kerfoot is a way better player than Pierre Engvall.

Leafs trade Andersen
Buffalo trades Hutton

Hutton just had the worst game I’ve ever seen a goalie ever have. And it’s only second intermission.

I still trust him more than Andersen though.

And he is far more entertaining.

And he is cheaper.



1.) 19 Mar 2021 08:47:51
Leafs should of signed Hutton in 2016 instead of giving up assets for Andersen. Probably wouldn’t of made playoffs in 16-17 or 17-18 but would be better now if this happened because Hutton is garbage and garbage is what Leafs needed then not false hope line Andersen gave them and still gives them

2018 Makar nieskanen
2019 Hughes boqvist Bouchard

Leafs would of got lehner long term signed by 2018-19 and gone in 2 great playoff runs by now.

Oh the would of could of should ofs for these leafs

#2016 offseason do over.

That’s messed up.

Does the team trading the player have to be the team
that retains 50%?

Oleksiak has been traded twice already for a return less than what you are offering here. I’m going to assume that given the precedents, you can get him cheaper.

Can’t give up both Kerfoot and Engvall while receiving only Patrick. Would destroy our centre depth. As far as I know, Laughton hasn’t played any meaningful centre role in a few years. He’s a winger now, like Kerfoot. He can’t be trusted to carry his own line at this point.

I’ve seen quite a few Philadelphia games this year. Usually against Pittsburgh or New Jersey. I have serious reservations about Patrick’s ability to play centre. While I have no doubt that he is better than Kerfoot, I don’t think he’d better than Engvall.

Philadelphia plays him 4C if that tells you anything.

Montour isn’t exactly a big fish. A third for a guy that failed out of Buffalo doesn’t really excite. It seems like Buffalo got a pretty good deal actually.

Dubas needs to go big or go home.

Does he have the balls?

My thoughts is he should. Desperate GM’s do desperate things. Whether he makes the big move or not, if this team fails in the playoffs again, I doubt Dubas comes back.

At least by making a big move he can say he tried.

Doing nothing, again, and failing flat on their faces, again, would be the worst possible thing to have happen. Again.
