Car
Kerfoot $3.5M

Tor
Keane RFA
Kochetkov $.842M

Carolina will need some reasonably priced forwards for their top 9 next season as they are likely lose Trochek to free agency and have some key RFA's to sign.

Leafs pick up a solid RD prospect that is not likely to get a chance in Carolina and also a solid goalie prospect who may be a cheap backup and potential starter one day. They create cap space by moving Kerfoot.

Then

Ana
Nylander $6.96M
Kallgren $.750M

Tor
Stolarz $.950M
Comtois $2.037M
Jones $1.295M

Anaheim adds Nylander to the skill they already have in Zegras, Terry Milano etc and could use Kallgren to backup Gibson.

Leafs pickup a solid G, as well as some size and youth in Comtois and Jones while clearing about another $3.3M in cap space.

Honestly I don’t see a need to trade kerfoot unless you think you can upgrade but I think kerfoot is a pretty good piece can play up and down the roster can play wing and center and was pretty big on our pk the guys also puts up points.


2.) 27 May 2022 19:07:52
L1994. I am just not one that is all that high on Kerfoot. He is a solid player, but i think the Leafs have enough Kerfoot types in the top 9. I think we need more size. Someone has to go. Based on return and cap space likely to open up, it Nylander and Kerfoot that should go. Nylander has had enough chances to prove himself and Kerfoot is on the final year at $3.5M. Just my opinion.

Det
Nylander $6.96M

Tor
Nedeljkovic $3M
Rasmussen $1.46M
Smith $.750M

Wings pick up a high end offence in Nylander who is in the age group of the rest of their top 6 players.

Leafs take a chance on Ned who is on an expiring contract. They get a big C/W in Rasmussen and a 4th liner in Smith while saving on the cap.

Then

LA
Kerfoot $3.5M
Robertson ELC

Tor
Wagner $1.13M
Kaliyev RFA
Fagemo ELC

LA gets a versatile top 9 player on expiring contract and a A- prospect who could be NHL ready.

Leafs get a 4th liner with grit that LA has in the minors. A young top 9 winger in Kaliyev and a B prospect in Fagemo.

Rasmussen and Kaliyev sign 2X$2M deals each.

Cap out $10.5M
Cap in $10.4M

If Yzerman wants Nylander I would try and squeeze a bit more out. I really wanted to see a trade for Ned when he was on the Canes and make him backup, I still think he's got it in him.

I like that LA trade. Get it done.


2.) 27 May 2022 01:11:40
Doesn’t seem like much of a return for a 34 goal, 80 point player.
A backup goalie, a 3rd line center and a 4th line winger.
I’m sure the Leafs can do far better.


3.) 27 May 2022 13:18:16
@WB/ LL. Maybe Leafs can get more from the Wings. The Leafs issue is going to be able to find a goalie for around $4M per season or under. Even if they move Mrazek, Kerfoot and Holl, that is about maximum they can probably spend on a goalie. It also comes down to what does it cost to move Mrazek and what does it cost to get a quality goalie at around $4M or less? If Leafs could also land Stolarz for instance after these deals, they should be good. I do wonder if Anaheim is going to look at moving Fowler this summer as well.

Felt like doing a 3 team trade.

NJ
Gibson $6.4M (Ana)

Ana
Nylander $6.96M (Tor)
Blackwood $2.8M (NJ)
Abruzzese ELC (Tor)

Tor
McLeod $.950M (NJ)
Okhotyuk ELC (NJ)
Jones $1.295M (Ana)
Helleson ELC (Ana)

NJ is rumoured to want to improve their goaltending, so they land Gibson for McLeod, Blackwood and Okhotyuk.

Ana picks up a young goalie who has shown to be very good in the past, Nylander and Abruzzese for Gibson, Jones and Helleson.

Leafs clear almost $4.8M in cap space while picking up more speed and grit in McLeod and Jones as well as two very good D prospects in Okhotyuk(LD) and Helleson(RD).

Leafs then trade

Nash
Kerfoot $3.5M
Holl $2M

Tor
Trenin RFA
Myers $2.55M

Thrown this out before where Nash gets the speed and versatility of Kerfoot and a D in Holl who costs less then Myers that they have in the minors.
Leafs get more cap space(should be about an extra $1M after signing Trenin) and size/grit. Leafs may use Myers.

RLF

1.) 25 May 2022 16:55:04
@RLF. Not that this would go through from Dallas's side . and i know Gibson is the hot name going around as goalie to replace Soup if he wants to much. but what if the leafs were to try to re-acquire their 2nd round pick from this year and offer Oettinger a contract. anything between 6mil and 8mil (rough estimates of the numbers that it would cost them a 1st,2nd and 3rd) do you think he takes it or better yer can Dallas match it. he's big. young and was great in the playoffs for the stars.


2.) 26 May 2022 02:48:26
@Lox I'm thinking Dallas matches. If they dont, then it's because you're handing over a tonne of picks. You would have to offer him 8 mil on a 4 year deal or else it turns into 2 firsts or more I believe.


3.) 26 May 2022 12:35:44
@Loxley. I believe Dallas has been high on Oettinger for a while. I think they would match unless the offer is really over the top. I would also be cautious to offer big money to a young goalie that looks great before he has played a couple of seasons. They usually fall back to earth some as opponents get better scouting on them. I think Dubas needs to try and find the next Campbell if he can't get Campbell to sign a reasonable deal. Whether that is Stolarz, C. Ingram etc, that may be the route Dubas has to go especially if he refuses to pull the trigger on a big move to open cap space.


4.) 27 May 2022 14:14:09
@LL i am sure you are right that they match it. but according to cap friendly leafs could offer 7 years @ 7.5mil and it would only cost them a 1st, a 2nd and a 3rd round pick. they'd have to get their second back from Seattle. maybe offer up Kerfoot or something.


5.) 27 May 2022 14:15:52
@RLF i am sure they are. but they have some other guys to sign like Robertson. they might not be allocating 7.5mil for a goalie. i just figured if we going to pay that for an older Gibson why not try the kid. yes it would be a big risk on Dubas' part but he has to be running out of time to get this team over the top. so what does he care.

Since this trade got some interest from some on here.

NJ
Nylander $6.96
Sandin RFA

Tor
McLeod $.950
Foote $.863M
Okhotyuk(this is the sleeper in the trade)
2022 2nd
2023 1st

Moves to fill out the rest of the team

FLA
Liljegren RFA
Steeves $.834

Tor
Weegar $3.25M

Florida has major cap issues. They need cheap, serviceable players that can play on the NHL roster. Leafs need a top 4 RD.

Ana
Robertson $.797M

Tor
Stolarz $.950M
Jones $1.295M

Ana looks like they may be in rebuild mode and have tons of good prospects and cap space. Robertson adds another quality young prospect to their mix. Leafs get a solid tandem type goalie who could be more like Campbell has been. Jones adds some 4th line size.

Chi
Mrazek $3.8M

Tor
Connolly $3.5M

I have said this one before because it just makes a ton of sense for both teams imo. Leafs then buyout Connolly.

Cap out $10.76 (Nylander,Mrazek)
Cap in $7.612 (McLeod,Weegar,Stolarz,Jones, Connolly buyout.)

Leafs have about $11M to fill roster.

Sandin 2X$2M
Engvall 2X$1.9M
Holtby 1X$3M
Spezza 1X$.750M
Blackwell 1X$.9M

About $1.5M left.

Bunting Matthews Marner
Kerfoot Tavares McLeod
Foote Kampf Engvall
Spezza Blackwell Jones
Simmonds

Rielly Weegar
Muzzin Brodie
Sandin Gio
Holl

Stolarz
Holtby

RLF

1.) 24 May 2022 16:11:51
@RLF. didn't you trade Sandin?


2.) 24 May 2022 17:31:36
@Loxley. Good catch. Yep, my bad. Holl should be with Gio. I am hoping Rubins can make the jump so he would be #7.


3.) 24 May 2022 18:12:41
@RLF I am probably one of the few Nylander fans on this site, but I would do this trade. Leafs pick up some good young players and prospects. Hopefully Nolan can generate some toughness and energy to that 3rd line.
I like all your trades except the Weegar trade. I think Liljegren is well on his way to being a top 4RD and is much younger and should be less costly than Weegar.
What are the buyout numbers for Connolly?
I honestly feel that Kampf should be our 4C so I would like to target a 3C with the extra saved cap space (maybe a Ryan Strome if we have enough cap space and forego resigning Blackwell) .


4.) 24 May 2022 18:33:13
@RLF i didn't cross reference all cap hits. but what are your thougths on Leafs trying to complete/ make a trade with Preds to bring up Myers who they loaned to the Marlies. maybe sending them back Holl and having them retain on Myers salary. I follow a leaf fan on youtube and he is big into stats and analytics in his videos and talked about Myers and from his numbers Myers seems to be the type of guy that performs good when paired with a top guy as opposed to how he plays not so good if he is on a bottom pair.

I only ask cause i like he size and all the potential he seemed to have/ has. ideally Preds buy him out and we can sign him cheaper.


5.) 24 May 2022 18:37:31
@RLF. question about your Mrazek deal. why do you say it makes sense. cause i know i saw something on Mrazek where 1st year would be $1mil cap hit for first year. $833000 for 2nd year and up to 144 3rd year. is Connolly's better than that?


6.) 24 May 2022 19:23:30
First one I like.

Weegar trade I think you're light. They probably ask for a fair amount more as he has performed very well for that price tag.

I like the Stolarz trade, but it comes with risks. Really depends how you see Soup and what kind of deal he gets.

Mrazek for Connoly is still the most creative way to move on from Mrazek.


7.) 24 May 2022 19:50:03
ANY LINE UP THAT HAS HOLL IN IT IS A HUGE NO.


8.) 24 May 2022 20:01:26
The Leafs will not have to do that trade with Mrazek to Chicago.
If they can not package him in a trade they will just put him on waivers and if he clears then buy out the 1.1 million owed on his AHL salary difference

Also love the New Jersey trade.

Leafs should then look to sign UFAS, Marchment and Hagg from Flordia as they are not going to resign them with thier upcoming cap issues.

Toronto also needs to secure the rights to Phillip Myers from the Biega trade.


9.) 24 May 2022 21:05:41
@Tagz. The buyout on Connolly is $1.167 for two years. With Mrazek gone, it opens up $2.7 almost in cap space. Weegar means we don't have to re-sign Lyubushkin and Weegar is already an established top 4. I like Liljegren's progress as well.

@Loxley. I have posted Myers for Holl trade actually multiple times, even in the reg season. I would do it in a second. I actually prefer Kerfoot and Holl for Trenin and Myers if Leafs could pull it off. Mrazek makes sense because Chi has no goalie and Connolly is in the minors costing them $2.375M against the cap anyway. They basically get Mrazek for $1.425 extra on the cap. Mrazek would be on the Leafs cap for 4 years with the final two years being $1.4M, right when Marner is due. Connolly's buyout ends when Matthews becomes due again.

@LL. You may be right on it light for Weegar, but they will desperately be looking to move cap this summer and Liljegren has looked better and better as the season went on. Steeves had a great first year in the A. Trying to take advantage of the Panthers, but it may be light. Stolarz is a risk and why I overpaid for one year of Holtby.

@PG. You can't buyout what is left after you send a guy down to the A. You have to buyout his NHL contract. That is 4 years that Mrazek will be on the books with the last two the biggest cap hit. I also like the Myers for Holl trade.


10.) 24 May 2022 21:10:48
@LL. Forgot to mention on Weegar. Weegar is also on his last year of his contract and then going to expect a good raise. FLA won't be able to afford it in a year either.


11.) 24 May 2022 23:20:02
@RLF good call. I forgot Weegar wasn't locked up long term. Probably fair value then for a rental. Good prop.


12.) 25 May 2022 03:02:05
@RLF I realized that Mrazek issue after posted my comment. should have gone to cap friendly. for some reason i thought it was only 3 years and like ya said Hawks will probly need a goalie. also remember talking about Myers. i think we both liked that idea at the time. still do apparently. lol.


13.) 25 May 2022 03:35:12
Agree with Tagz44.
Kampf should be Leafs 4th line center.

Don’t see NJ giving Leafs three young players with upside plus 1st and 2nd round picks for Nylander and Sandin.

I would prefer Nylander, Kerfoot, Holl and Leafs 1st round pick (28th I believe) for NJ’s 1st round pick, #2 overall in 2022 and McLeod.
Leafs dump $10.4 (- McLeods cap hit) in salary if NJ has the cap space.
Not even sure that’s enough to swing the deal.


 

 

21 May 2022 18:51:46
I have had Nylander to NJ I am not sure how many times, so what is one more really.

NJ
Nylander $6.96
Sandin RFA

Tor
McLeod $.950
Foote
Okhotyuk(this is the sleeper in the trade)
2022 2nd
2023 1st

RLF

1.) 21 May 2022 20:52:09
My only concern would be it provides little to no immediate benefit.

I like McLeod as you know and I believe he can be a 20+ goal and assist guy, he has amazing speed and not afraid to be physical.

Foote could be a very solid addition, his AHL performance has been decent while Okhotyuk appears to have NHL talent, size and physicality.

If Foote and Okhotyuk can make the jump next year it could work otherwise it’s more of a future investment.


2.) 21 May 2022 21:11:07
I'm good with this. You can use the cap savings to either resign a few guys, or grab a 2RW.


3.) 21 May 2022 22:24:44
Rsears. I see it as immediate and future. The cap space allows to add now. Foote probably makes the jump. I have been talking about Okhotyuk for about 2 years. I see him as a left shooting Lyubushkin with better play making ability and he fights. He is becoming what I thought he could be. The Nylander cap space and not having to resign Sandin means they can re-sign Lyubushkin and others and still have Okhotyuk developing.
Help now with McLeod/ Foote and signings. Help in the future with Okhotyuk, a 2nd and a 1st.


4.) 21 May 2022 23:35:40
If Foote can make the big squad then I’m more comfortable.

If McLeod gets to 20-20 and Foote goes 10-20 we make up for losing Nylander.

And I can’t believe I’m saying this but I thought Sandin was decent last year but the cap space should allow the Leafs to acquire a top 4 D-man.

I’m going to look for him now. Lol.


5.) 22 May 2022 00:17:58
A good trade for both teams.
My concern is who do the Leafs find to replace Nylander on the right side of Tavares?


6.) 22 May 2022 01:32:50
Solid trade.


7.) 22 May 2022 13:53:20
Rsears. I would be hoping to resign Lyubushkin and Gio if Gio would come back on a friendly deal. I liked our D at the end last year.

WB49. I would still hope to work another move revolving around Kerfoot for Trenin. Would like another big man in the top 9. Resign Engvall and Trenin (under $2M each per) . Tavares and Kampf would have McLeod, Trenin, Engvall, Foote, Robertson to make up possible winger combos. Still have to figure out in goal, but I would like to go after Stolarz and sign a guy like Holtby on the cheap with him. Should still have tons of cap space left if looking at a big add.

Subban and Woll? Unless we are assembling the Canadian Olympic team to play in front of them, I am not sure the Leafs even make the playoffs.

This one is intriguing. I mean Leafs get rid of Mrazek and Holl for Myers who is barely a 5 right now and paid big money. I wouldn't if i were the Leafs.

Thats a tough one cause Clarke could turn out to be a stud and I think Sandin tops out as a 3, but probably a really good 4.

L1994. I am just not one that is all that high on Kerfoot. He is a solid player, but i think the Leafs have enough Kerfoot types in the top 9. I think we need more size. Someone has to go. Based on return and cap space likely to open up, it Nylander and Kerfoot that should go. Nylander has had enough chances to prove himself and Kerfoot is on the final year at $3.5M. Just my opinion.
