Tor: kerfoot sandin hirvonen 1st 2023
Chi: Kane 50%
Ana: 25% Kane
Tor: kallgren

So what I like about the Kane trade is the optics of what the leafs would look like. I would get nylander and trade him for a long term solution in a rhd would then free up space to sign Matthews next summer

Before deadline
Bunting Matthews Kane
Nylander Tavares marner

Post deadline
Knies Matthews Kane
Bunting Tavares Marner




24 Aug 2022 10:22:40
An all in move

Tor: kerfoot sandin hirvonen 1st
Chi: Kane @ 50% retained

Kane has talked about his desire to play with Matthews last year when they were not able to go to the olympics note the leafs would still have to move out money going the other way is kerfoot for cap reasons still a useful player they get sandin who shows a lot of good potential just no room in Toronto hirvonen who has performed well at the international level especially recently and they get our 1st this year. is it too much or do I need to add?


1.) 24 Aug 2022 13:43:01
I think that package would get it done. Just need to shed around 2.3M, if my math is right. Maybe throw in Engvall or make a separate move with him and Holl for a better RHD. Wishful thinking, but I still think we need help on defense. If we deal Sandin and one of our older LHD goes down, we're in serious trouble.

2.) 24 Aug 2022 16:23:26
Offer seems reasonable, although Hawks may get better ones, but it depends on where Kane wants to play as well.
First, you need Kerfoot to waive or hope Chicago isn't on his no trade list. Then the cap issues. Leafs are already $1.5M over. Add the $1.75M Leafs must cover in this deal and they need to shed $3.25M approximately. You could send Simmonds and Clifford down, but still only half way there. Could move Holl, but then he needs to be replaced as he is the 6th D now, which probably leave a shortage still.

3.) 24 Aug 2022 21:24:34
I agree cap is the issue here and may need a third team for most deals.



15 Aug 2022 17:30:00
Tor: kerfoot sandin Robertson
Arz: chychrun doan

I think this would be a trade I'd consider for chychrun if he can play the right side the leafs blueline becomes one of the best blueline in the nhl. Every team knows he wants out which hurts the return for Arizona that's why I would never include nylander in this deal the yotes are still not looking to win but have built a good prospect pool bedard will be a player they want to tank for to help draw players going forward in the mean time they get a useful cheap player in kerfoot who they can flip and two young good players. I added doan to the trade I know he was picked by Arizona specifically because of his dad which may make him a non option but I like what he brings good size can play gritty and has some offensive ability


1.) 15 Aug 2022 19:59:13
Chychrun has only spent a handful of games on the right side and he shoots left. He may be able to play the right side, but that's a big gamble since he never really has before.

2.) 15 Aug 2022 20:04:06
I would say we add a 1st and they take out Doan, might get it done. I agree with not trading Nylander.

3.) 15 Aug 2022 21:36:57
I wouldn’t give all that for chychrun yes he has term but like I said before by him requesting a trade means he don’t get top value in a trade.

4.) 16 Aug 2022 01:37:33
I am not a fan of trading for Chychrun but if Arizona was willing to accept this paltry offering Leafs would be foolish not to agree.

5.) 16 Aug 2022 02:36:20
I think that is their ask, I wouldn't do it either. I don't think he is the answer for us. A solid defensive RHD is what we really need.

6.) 16 Aug 2022 10:03:35
Just for comparison the Sabres got Tuch (top 9 fwd) kerbs (top prospect) and a conditional 1st and 2nd my offer isn’t that far off in my eyes.

7.) 17 Aug 2022 02:20:50
I agree with L67. Take out Doan, add a pick/ prospect and it may get it done. Kerfoot should appeal toothed because his cap hit is much higher than his salary. They can flip him another TDL to make a bigger return.



10 Aug 2022 12:21:39
Tor: kerfoot sandin
Ana: comtois helleson

This trade helps both teams leafs get comtois who is one of those players that's not afraid to mix it up and battle and helleson is a promising rhd prospect leafs save about 1.5 mil in cap space Anaheim gets a serviceable middle six utility player and a young lhd who can add to their blueline


1.) 10 Aug 2022 18:24:49

2.) 10 Aug 2022 19:45:35
Leafsguy yes Anaheim gets the two better players currently but helleson is a rhd prospect with size something leafs lack comtois too had a good first season then the ducks got worse is it really a loss I’d rather have two young players that cost less over kerfoot who we already know what he is at his best and sandin who will be a 7/ 6 if he signs.

3.) 12 Aug 2022 01:43:39
Leafs are initially giving more than they receive but if Comtois has a bounce back season and Helleson continues to progress the Leafs could well win this trade over the long run.



08 Aug 2022 00:59:29
Tor: holl

Tor: kerfoot sandin abbruzese
Nyi: mayfield beavullie

So going through every team in the nhl looking at what team is the best trade partners for the leafs and I can't help but to keep circling back to the islanders kerfoot seems like a good fit in they're system sandin is a young up and comer and they get a b level prospect why the islanders may make this trade is because they are trying to make room for kadri. Now the return is a top 6 winger with term and a big stay at home rhd this solves the leafs roster questions for the most part leafs have to move holl out first and then have to figure out the remaining cap overage but that can be solved by sending a few guys down

Looking at what's left in free agency there's still a chance for the leafs to add some bodies need moved but I think the only hole that probably needs filled is a rhd..

I've mentioned dehaan before I think he's a lefty that plays right and to me is probably a better option than holl and being it's getting close to camp might be able to get him at In and around 1 mill for 1 year I think we have all realized that Reilly doesn't need an all star to play with just someone that will allow him to
Play his style of game.

Next I have some pto options

Victor rask 4C
Sam gagnier 4C
Evgeny svcheikov
Jonathan dahlen

Could be cheap depth options for the leafs


1.) 22 Aug 2022 21:51:29
I'd be ok with any of those options if they come in near league min.

2.) 23 Aug 2022 14:08:20
I still like Svechnikov. He was at the top of my list last season. I am still kind of intrigued by Steele though.

3.) 25 Aug 2022 00:57:53
I agree that Svechnikov offers the most interest to me. I also had proposed this as well as Steel.

Svechnikov has really not been given the opportunity. I’d put him on LW with Tavares and Nylander. He’s big, powerful, has a great shot, good passer and can skate.

The downside has been getting caught out of position in the D zone. Let’s simplify it for him, guarding the point man puck on his side and the slot when puck on opposite side! How difficult is that!

Steel has my interest as well but I’d start with Evgeny! NOW!



18 Aug 2022 17:39:14
Seeing kadri signing in Calgary makes me wanna spark a debate. did kadri screw over the leafs? He stopped a trade to the flames which was bringing back Brodie instead the leafs ended up getting barrie kerfoot.


1.) 18 Aug 2022 20:50:30
I wasn't a fan of trading Kadri for a UFA regardless unless something significant was coming back.

Brodie signed here 6 months later for 5 years, didn't screw Dubas. Dubas can't negotiate trades or contracts.

2.) 19 Aug 2022 00:13:45
In all fairness to Dubas, Brodie at $5M is great value imo. Kadri didn't want to leave T. O. Now that he is a Cup winner, did signing with Calgary have a little "screw you to it"? Maybe.



12 Aug 2022 10:05:51
Apparently hockeybuzz has reported that the leafs and yotes are talking nylander plus for chychrun.. To me idk if I believe it for one and two just seems like another kadri for barrie type deal unless there are other deals to follow idk seems weird and random to me


1.) 13 Aug 2022 08:10:44
Joke of a site and joke of a writer. That's all it is.

I skimmed the article because a buddy of mine sent it to me. Nylander+prospects+picks for another LHD? Dubas isn't the sharpest guy going, but I can't imagine he makes that deal.

2.) 13 Aug 2022 15:09:32
I think he does play the right side but I agree as much as I think nylander could give more to the leafs moving him for a defencemen would leave to big of a hole on offence.



17 Jul 2022 21:24:33
I got to say I'm not a fan of the engvall deal yes only one year but too much $$ leafs might have to trade kerfoot now to make the money work


1.) 17 Jul 2022 22:56:27
It’s a fair price
Can demote simmonds. Clifford 1.6 gone
Trade Holl for dipietro
Use that to sign Sandin
Dipietro to ahl.

2.) 18 Jul 2022 00:43:45
Based on what he did, you aren't getting cheaper.

I know it seems like a lot, but it's fair value.

3.) 18 Jul 2022 15:48:10
I had him at 2X$1.9M, so 1X$2.25 seems about right. He gets to walk to UFA status, so depending on the season he is having, I wouldn't be surprised if he gets moved by the deadline.

4.) 18 Jul 2022 17:42:14
Yea I agree I just though for his first kinda breakout season I thought he might come in under 2 mil.

5.) 18 Jul 2022 23:45:21
I agree it’s probably in the ballpark. I too hoped for $2m or less.

I like his PK abilities, important w/ o Mikheyev and I see him scoring 20g and 25a this year and being more consistent.

6.) 19 Jul 2022 04:04:59
@Rsears I was hoping for 1.5, but if he went to arbitration he gets 2.5-3m. I'm ok with the deal.



13 Jul 2022 18:11:27
Interesting day so far from the leafs I didn't care for the kubel signing gaudette is ok leafs have 2 mil in space sign sandin and engvall to sign.. Trade coming? I would love to see the leafs go get Jan rutta the lightning just spent all their money maybe 1.5 for a year or two just can't see the leafs being happy with putting kerfoot back on the 2nd line


1.) 13 Jul 2022 20:06:14
I don't mind any of the signings, but someone has to be moved soon.

2.) 13 Jul 2022 22:30:43
I’m okay with the signings, especially Samsonov who is young enough to improve and becom3 a true number 1. Obviously Washington wanted Kuemper.

All he could do without having moved off some money (Muzzin, Kerfoot, Holl or Nylander) .

He has yet to sign Engvall and Sandin which will take around $4m so he’s over by $2.

Leafs, like all teams, can go 10% over cap until season starts so lots of time to make trades however teams won’t do you any favours when they know you’re against the wall.

Still hoping for someone like Dylan Strome, Sonny Milano, maybe Markus Nutivaara or Robert Hagg.

Or a nice return on a trade of one or two of the above.

3.) 13 Jul 2022 23:30:04
I'm really wondering what the plan is. I don't see a way that this team is an improvement.

Mathews and Marner will continue to dominate, Tavares, Muzzin and Brodie will slowly decline and Rielly is in his prime.

He's going to need to pull off a miracle if this is a contending team.

4.) 13 Jul 2022 23:30:44
Does anyone know how the ltir works do you have to be cap compliant at the start of the season or what cause I see Tampa is still like 7 mil over the cap I would love for Toronto to go trade for that little contract to be able to add more say holl for littles ltir.

5.) 14 Jul 2022 01:41:02
You can exceed the cap by 10% in the off-season, but no one can be LTIR until day one of the season.

So much for Jan Rutta. Another bargain player Dubas had no interest in.

6.) 14 Jul 2022 09:35:53

7.) 14 Jul 2022 11:45:13
@LL. It is looking like the plan is the same one as always. Swap out the cheapies for other cheapies and pray.
I really hope Dubas is just waiting in the weeds for teams that have missed out on a UFA they were targeting or a team that still wants to add to what they have already done and then he makes a big trade.

NJ signed Palat, but may be interested in Willy and or Holl. Detroit is a darkhorse for Willy.

8.) 14 Jul 2022 13:10:33
I agree I think dubas is gonna try and squeeze a few veteran players that don’t get offers think of guys like gagnier or stasny I just don’t like the mix of the bottom six tbh would of rather let some marlies in like Steeves and Anderson and use the cap space to fill the top 6 role.

9.) 14 Jul 2022 14:30:48
L1994. Same old same old.

Yes Anaheim isn’t looking to be great this year but they’re not gonna take on bad contracts terry zegras and drysdale are all up next year muzzin probably doesn’t move the needle for them.

I think it has more to do with him being on a bad team than anything which would make him available and Seattle has the cap space to eat money.

Makes sense what you’re saying but still doesn’t make any of those players better than nylander and they wouldn’t make the leafs better just my opinion and to be fair the leafs can’t use the cap saving now that most of the quality players are gone.

I just got to ask what was so much better from last year compared to this year mikhyev had an ok year still has hands of stone I’m pretty positive that if he wasn’t as fast as he is he wouldn’t be in the league Campbell and mrazek had one of the leagues worst combined save % Spezza being gone hurts the room but he wasn’t that productive so again I fail to see where the downgrade is I think the leafs have a fourth line they can use yea we lost lybushkin but we also get gio for a full year kase was good for a part of the year but was mainly hurt yes the leafs are gambling in net but I don’t feel any worse than I did with Campbell in net.
