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.



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




04 Aug 2022 20:02:33
Tor: kerfoot
Van: 3rd

Tor: sandin
Nsh: glass

Leafs sign
Dehaan 1x1.5
Gagnier 2x750k

Kerfoot becomes a cap casualty in order to land a couple free agent dehaan slides into the top 4 leafs add depth with gagnier but the interesting trade is sandin for Cody glass he had 62pts in 66gp last year in the ahl hasn't been giving a lot of opportunity but has good size and seems like a risk but the leafs have played their hand with sandin by resigning gio and not being willing to move muzzin


1.) 05 Aug 2022 14:16:25
I’m okay with most of this but think there are better choices than Gagner and certainly not for 2 years.

Not sure why Nashville didn’t give Glass a chance so that is my only trepidation with that move but he could have some upside!

I agree with the Sandin treatment, much like Campbell, the writing is on the wall perhaps.

Instead of Gagner let’s take a flyer on Jake Virtanen.

2.) 05 Aug 2022 14:54:49
I have had Glass in a few as well. He is a tough one. Big boy that hasn't seemed to learn how to use it yet. AHL point producer that hasn't been able to translate to the NHL yet. AT 23, time is starting to run out on him being a possible NHL top 6er. Value might be on Sandin's side at the moment, so I think the trade is fair, but I am not sure Nash has any need for Sandin. Maybe Robertson?

3.) 05 Aug 2022 16:11:34
Hard pass on virtanen. Dudes a cancer. The wife has billits growing up and the year he was on the team, all if his teammates hated him. Also the way he was at parties, strong chance he sexually assaulted that girl.

4.) 05 Aug 2022 17:19:59
@Randy. I remember you mentioned that about him before and maybe he has matured because of this, maybe not. I totally understand your opinion of him based on what your wife saw/ heard etc.

All that said, he may have done some other things at parties, but doesn't mean he assaulted that particular girl. He lost his NHL job because the Canucks assumed he did it and wanted to make a statement by getting rid of him.

In Canada the jury must be unanimous. That means all 12 jurors didn't believe her and agreed on that conclusion by the next morning. Not saying this means he didn't, and some/ many will think he probably did anyway, but logically it is hard to fool all 12 jurors that they spent basically no time deliberating before agreeing he didn't assault her.

5.) 05 Aug 2022 21:33:30
@Randy so is Phil Kessel by all accounts. I still don't think we can just assume he did something after being proven innocent.

Up until the verdict I would have distanced myself as well if I was Dubas. Now though, I would say give him a shot if it's a contract that can be buried for one year.

6.) 05 Aug 2022 23:29:04
Good dialogue guys.

I, too, would give him a chance.

He’s 25 now which is the age a man’s brain starts to function properly, according to my wife.

Let’s hope he has learned his lesson.

7.) 06 Aug 2022 02:27:33
Vancouver, like the Leafs, are trying to create cap space not take on Kerfoot’s $3.5 million.

Sandin for Cody Glass is interesting but as you say, a risk.
Sandin has proven in his 51 game stint in the NHL last year that he can play in the NHL.
Despite his excellent AHL numbers Glass has still to prove he belongs in the big league.
If Sandin won’t sign it/ holds out it might be worth the risk.

DeHann and Gagner need to retire not be added to Leafs ever growing, over 30 crowd.



26 Jul 2022 19:26:51
Tor: sandin rfa
Mtl: Dvorak

It's been well documented on here that Dvorak with marner could be a good match for the leafs it would work after moving out kerfoot and holl the habs need the cap space to sign dach

Bunting Matthews nylander
Tavares Dvorak marner
Engvall kampf jankrok
Steeves gaudette aube kubel


1.) 26 Jul 2022 20:34:19
Going to need to dump a lot of cap space for that one.

I'm all for Dvorak and I think it's a fair deal. Just need to move Kerfoot, Holl and possibly a bit more first.

2.) 27 Jul 2022 11:34:16
Dvorak only make 4.5 one you move kerfoot and holl the leafs have plenty of space to fit him in.

3.) 27 Jul 2022 14:07:50
Have to add in that the Leafs are currently $1.4+M over the cap. That is $5.9M+ with Dvorak's contract. Kerfoot and Holl are $5.5M combined. You either run a short roster or move someone else.

4.) 27 Jul 2022 21:57:41
That’s literally burying simmonds or clifford.

5.) 28 Jul 2022 00:20:40
Yes, but you can't replace them if you do, hence the short roster. This means calling someone up incase of injury and risk losing them when they get sent back down. There is a risk to a short roster.

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.



08 Jul 2022 16:24:07
I've seen nylanders name out there a lot during the draft most recently to New Jersey I personally think dubas is up to a big move I would love atty Kane if they can get him at retained salary




07 Jul 2022 20:00:55
What a whirl wind of an offseason it has been teams willing to give up top 10 picks goalie market has been interesting so far big names available for trade and some big free agents out there too I'm very curious how dubas plays this I don't think he can afford to play things too safe with his job on the line

At this point Turcotte probably has close to the same value as abbruzese.

Muzzin has to waive is the first block and who replaces muzzin sandin probably is t ready and gio is too old leafs get worse here imo.

Here the argument i have about Miller why does Vancouver move him without a top 6 player coming back they are trying to win now this package is something that may work at the deadline and Vancouver is out of a playoff spot.

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.

Marners deal was 6year deal hence why aav is higher then tkachuks.
