Leafs: Marner, nylander, lily
Bsh: saros, Josi, forsberg

I doubt trotz does it, but high end skill might outweigh balance lol.

Bizzare.
Trade both your 1st and 2nd line right wings leaving the Leafs with Jarnkrok and Reaves on the right side?

It’s not that the pieces coming back aren’t good: a #1 goaltender, a #1 defenseman and a #1 left winger are more than the value of what Leafs are sending to Nashville.
But the imbalance it causes both teams make this trade impractical.

I don't really see this being trotz style but what about an absolute monster

Marner, nylander lily

Josi saros forsberg.

Nashville gets younger and retools for the future, Toronto goes into win now making them have one of the best forwards goalies and D in the nhl

Top line forward, Norris calibre D, and top 5 starter? I think you replace Mitch with Mathews in this one.


2.) 23 May 2024 16:10:14
@Randy, Forsberg is better than Willy and Mitch. I’d take him in a heartbeat over either of these two Cottonelle spokesmen. So Leafs add a 1st, Cowan and maybe more. Thing is, Nashville isn’t stupid enough to have multiple double digit millionaires on forward. Only Shanahan on Leafs thought it was a good idea and with 4 of them. ?‍♂️.


3.) 23 May 2024 19:14:51
Just. lol.

Randy2

1.) 22 May 2024 00:29:05
Silovs is a third string goalie who had a nice one week run …. Pass.


2.) 22 May 2024 11:33:15
I would not give Marner alone to Vancouver for that return let alone add Liljegren.


3.) 22 May 2024 22:02:32
The sad reality is that neither Nylander or marner is going to agree to be traded. Stuck with them .


4.) 23 May 2024 00:20:22
CKPS 100% wrong. Marner will be gone this off season. There is no way he wants to stay in the rubbish storm. Guaranteed to part ways this summer.


5.) 23 May 2024 01:05:33
I would suspect that Marner and his new bride might well have had their fill of the negativity from Toronto media and Leaf Nation and would possibly welcome a new environment of their choosing.


 

 

13 May 2024 03:23:56
Tor: Matthews, Marner, Reilly

Nyi: horvat, wahlstrom, pelech, Dobson, sorokin, 2027 1st

Resign edmundson domi and bertuzzi.

You guys said Matthews has to go back. It's a swing for the fences to balance the lineup.

Bertuzzi horvat Domi
Knies Tavares nylander
Robertson holmberg mcmann
Wahlstrom Kampf jarnkrok

Pelech Dobson
McCabe Benoit
Edmundson lily

Sorokin woll

Less potent offense but more well rounded team.

Randy2

 

 

12 May 2024 15:43:10
Tor: Marner, Reilly, lily: 24 and 25 1sts

Nyi: pelech, Dobson, sorokin.

A lot to pay but this team is immediately fixed.
Can bring back domi bertuzzi dewar and edmundson

Leaf lineup

Bertuzzi Matthews domi
Knies Tavares nylander
Robertson holmberg mcmann
Jarnkrok Kampf Reeves
Dewar

Pelech Dobson
Benoit McCabe
Edmunson Timmins

Sorokin woll

dont have a 25 1st rounder. and I highly doubt they trade dobson.


2.) 12 May 2024 17:01:13
Damn forgot we traded thst.


3.) 12 May 2024 17:06:26
I like the deal, but I just don't think you're ever getting Dobson for less than Mathews. Stud 1D just aren't traded.


4.) 12 May 2024 23:05:11
3rd pairing is awful.


5.) 13 May 2024 03:13:31
Teams tend not to trade 24 year old, #1 defensemen who are top 10 at their position in the League (Makar, Hughes, Jossi, Heiskanen, Fox, Slavin, MCAvoy, Dobson…. )
Nor do they often trade a #1 goaltender who is probably in the top 6 among goaltenders in the league.

Targeting Marner in trades I get. marner will not waive to go to a dry state, the dude likes to party. The incentive would have to be like captaincy to get Marner to waive to go to Utah. Even that might not do it.

Randy2

I think you might be taking this forum a bit to seriously if you’re posting and telling people their mock trades are not good.

Out of curiosity, based on a trade suggestion I put forward before jack Hughes was drafted would you guys trade, Matthews for Hughes hischier, and holtz. Mind you holt, could be different. Due to the trade.

Before Hughes was drafted, I suggested trading Matthews for hischier and the 19 and 20 1sts. The responses were almost entirely negative.

Just curious what people think now?

Randy2

1.) 06 May 2024 20:33:39
It worked out well for the prop because NJ sucked those two seasons and they picked 1st and then 7th overall. I have to be honest, I don't like the "would you now" on deals that were for picks that nobody knew where the team was going to pick in the future.

It's like the Kessel to Toronto deal. Of course since the picks ended up 2nd and 9th overall, I would have laughed at the Kessel deal. The thought was they would both be mid teens or worse picks when the trade was made and most weren't too concerned. People got mad when Toronto sucked and the picks ended up being high picks.

Now, If you posted that trade after Hughes was drafted, just before the 2020 draft when we knew NJ was picking 7th overall and the deal was Matthews for Hischier, Hughes and the 7th overall, I am sure some would have been thinking "maybe" at the least, if not yes. If NJ was picking 16/ 17 instead of 7th, it isn't as appealing.

A couple years ago I had posted something like Nylander to Buffalo for Tuch, Jokiharju and Peterka. I got blasted and told Peterka will never be an NHLer, Tuch is a 2nd/ 3rd liner and Jokiharju isn't good enough defensively. No way giving up Nylander for that. In this deal the players were already known, so it's different. I am sure many would take it now.

Anyhow, yours was a solid prop that turned out to be a blockbuster prop in the end. Kudos.


2.) 07 May 2024 01:18:48
@Randy pretty much as RLF put it. The big problem with trades for futures is they could turn into nothing. That scares most of us. Mcdavid turned into mcdavid, but he could have also been another Nail Yakupov.

Until players are in the NHL (and even then), we really don't know what they're worth.


3.) 07 May 2024 13:39:29
The funny thing is I did put that just before the Hughes draft. (Jersey locked in Hughes) The only one we didn't know about was holtz.


4.) 07 May 2024 15:17:55
Randy. I get what you are saying. The point is that no one knew for sure how Quinn would workout. He has had his share of injuries so far and that is a concern. Also, didn't know where the next 1st (2020) would be in the draft yet. Would it be a top 5? 6-10?, 10-20 pick? Typically, outside the top 12, it gets dicey on how well these guys will work out. Jarvis went 13 and Mercer 18 in the 2020 draft. Other than that, outside the top 12 there are not a lot of budding top 6 forwards or top 4 D. Ironically Holtz may be a miss, but someone else may have taken Quinn or Perfetti instead with that 7th pick.
Like I said, it looks like a blockbuster deal now because of how well Hughes and Hischier have played and I am sure if you threw it out now, you would get some or many yeses. Let's not forget Matthews was considered a generational player. Hughes and Hischier were not. I'm still not sure I would make the deal tbh.

So a breakdown of this team

Want gone

Marner
Samsonov
Brodie
Gio
Bush

Want to stay

Matthews nylander knies edmundson woll domi Benoit

Has to stay due to money

Tavares

Don't really care if they are on the team or not next year

The rest.
Yes Reilly and McCabe included.

Randy2

1.) 06 May 2024 04:10:39
What's your problem with McCabe? He's been great.


2.) 06 May 2024 12:26:45
No crap. McCabe was our best D in the playoffs and the leader back there while Morgan took the year off.


3.) 06 May 2024 13:09:29
Randy. McCabe? Have to echo the others here. At $2M, how do you find better than McCabe? He's a warrior type logging 21 and a half mins a night and playing the toughest minutes. The pair of McCabe/ Benoit played the toughest minutes. Benoit was the weaker of the pair.


4.) 06 May 2024 13:37:34
He just looked scared to play a game 7. I thought he was one of worst D in that game. I don't have an issue with McCabe, just don't care whether he's with the team or not. Could also just be salty towards him from his game 7 performance. He was on the fence for me for keep at all costs and don't care.

@leafslife.

I can admit when I'm wrong, Jones did not play well, little help from the team but that's been ongoing last few weeks.

Boston in 6

Randy2

1.) 18 Apr 2024 19:13:21
Not sure any of them have played well though lol. Goalies+team look like garbage.


2.) 18 Apr 2024 20:33:35
It was a team total non-effort.


 

 

14 Apr 2024 03:45:18
Also that 4th goal was awful but the other 4 samsonov gets 0 blame.

I think Minton has to go to Chicago, in this scenario and Calgary has to send something else to us. They shouldn't get assets for offloading huberdeau.

I actually agree with you goat. He looked okay on AM's wing. But looked way better in the playoffs as a centreman.

I think Keefe is shown to be a dud in Jersey. I don't think his systems work that well, I think Jersey starts hot next year and and falls off in the second half of the season.

If he doesn't agree to waive, or sign at 8 million let him rot on the 4th line and no pp time.

Also the winner was 100 % Sammy's fault. He had so much time to play that puck. He was just scared and didn't do anything to play that right. Others are at fault to for poor coverage, but that puck should have been gone as soon as Sammy saw pasta flying passed marner.
