If Minnesota want to resign Fiala.
Straight forward trade.

To Minnesota
2023 3rd round

To Toronto
Marcus Foligno $3.1M (signed 2 more years)

Leafs get a heart and soul guy with some grit who plays middle six. He also PK's so Leafs can let Mikheyev walk if he wants too much money.

And as I said above, Minnesota clears some cap space to help resign Fiala.

Thoughts?

This fits under the cap, how? When Rielly kicks in, Sandin and Lili are signed, you're looking at a really tight squeeze. I don't think it's possible.


2.) 26 May 2022 03:25:32
@LL no doubt it will be tough to squeeze but this proposal would be after Dubus clears out some contracts.
Obvious moves in my mind are Mrazek, Kerfoot and Muzzin (which obviously will be the hardest since he has full NTC) . But if Dubas can remove Kerfoot and Muzzin for draft picks and/ or prospects then we should be good. Obviously we will need to lose a higher draft pick getting rid of Mrazek but I'm sure it can be done.

My potential line up
Bunting-Matthews-Marner $23.487M
_______-Tavares-Nylander $17.94M
Foligno (3.1M) -Paul (UFA 3M) -Kase (1.5M) $7.6M
Engvall (1.75M) -Kampf-Blackwell (900K) $4.15M
Forwards total $53.177M

Rielly-Brodie $12.5M
Sandin (2M) -Holl $4M
Gio-Lily (1.8M) 2.6M
Boosh? (1.7M)
Defense total $20.8M

Campbell (4.5M)
Kallgren 750
Goalie total $5.25M
Total cap $79.227M, remaining $3.773M to find a top 6LW

I'm hoping Dubas targets some bigger and more gritty top 9 forwards and I think Marxus Foligno and going after UFA Nick Paul would be a good start. Anyways banking on lots of moves to happen.


3.) 26 May 2022 03:33:04
Plus we do have Robertson and potentially Holmberg, Steeves, Anderson who could make the jump up and save some more cap dollars. But I definitely want Dubas to target some bigger tougher players.


4.) 26 May 2022 04:30:42
Trading Muzzin is a real concern for me. Sandin doesn't do anything well that Muzzin does. Sandin is not moving people from net front, hitting, playing sound defence, it's basically just Bush and Muzzin doing certain things.


5.) 26 May 2022 11:19:03
I understand what you're saying but Muzzin's contract is pretty big and he seems to be on a decline even though he played well against Tampa.
We can move Boosh to play with Sandin instead if Holl.
We can slot Robertson's $800K into L2 and have $2.973M remaining. Then we either don't sign Boosh or trade Holl so we have closer to $5M left to target a bigger nasty tough RD from UFA market, maybe Manson?
Dubas still would have lots of options.


6.) 26 May 2022 19:31:28
Manson doesn't want to play in Canada. You would need to massively overpay him to come here.

Muzzin's contract might be an issue soon, but that can be said for Brodie and JT as well.

If Muzzin leaves, we just need someone new coming in.


7.) 26 May 2022 23:11:07
Agreed we need someone new coming in if Muzzin is moved.
Anyways there are quite a few UFA's to choose from, maybe deHann who plays both sides, Gudbrandson who is big and nasty just to name a couple.
I know there are lots of Nylander trade props out there, but personally I would rather target a Muzzin trade and keep Nylander.

I'm glad to see Keefe pair up Nylander and Kerfoot on the 3rd line. As I said below, Nylander and Kerfoot have shown some real good chemistry together. I hope this line remains. Plus moving Kampf down to the 4th line solves lots of issues ... he alone improves that line immensely. And hopefully Kase will be ready.

Bunting-Matthews-Marner
Mikheyev-Tavares-Kase/Blackwell
Engvall-Kerfoot-Nylander
_______-Kampf-Kase/Blackwell
Lots of options
Simmonds/Clifford/Abruzzese

Rielly-Lyubushkin
Muzzin-Brodie
Gio-Lily (fully deserved IMO)
Options
Holl & Sandin (as per recovery)

1.) 20 Apr 2022 21:47:03
Forgot to add Speeza as another option for L4.


 

 

20 Mar 2022 01:26:54
To Toronto
Garland $4.95M
Motte $1.25M

To Vancouver
Kerfoot $3.5M
Liljegren $.864M
2023 4th

Then

To Toronto
Giordano $6.75M (50% retained)

To Seattle
Dermott $1.5M
2022 2nd

Cap In $9.575 / Cap Out $5.864M

I believe Leafs will have approx $4M cap space.

Thoughts?

Rather have Carson Soucy than Giordano!
I wouldn’t trade Liljegren as RHD that the team has spent 4 years developing are too valuable.
I also believe that if you want Garland, Kerfoot is not nearly enough and that it would probably take Nylander to consummate the trade.
I would do Nylander for Garland and Motte.

Just a couple of small but needed trades IMO.

Like this trade already posted
To Toronto
Holtby $2M UFA

To Dallas
Dermott $1.5M +1yr RFA
Conditional 2023 4th if Holtby resigns

Then

To Toronto
DeHaan $4.55M UFA
2022 4th

To Chicago
Mrazek $3.8M +2yrs

I think trade works for all parties, especially if Fleury is traded.

Thoughts?

I think your trade works if Muzzin stays on LTIR until after March 21 for the math. People on here forget bout the math often.


2.) 09 Mar 2022 15:39:17
@Rocket9 there is only $1.25M difference in cap which I believe we will have the space at the deadline.


3.) 09 Mar 2022 20:26:13
@Tagz. Yes, we should have the space. Leafs could also send down Liljegren if necessary to create cap space. I'm sure you did the "math" ahead of time.


4.) 09 Mar 2022 23:58:36
I like the idea of replacing Mrazek with Holtby.


 

 

03 Mar 2022 18:09:59
Leafs need 2LW and top 4LD IMO.

To Toronto
McLeod $975K +1yr RFA
2022 4th round

To NJ
Kerfoot $3.5M +1yr UFA

Then

To Toronto
Giordano $6.75M UFA

To Seattle
Dermott $1.5M +1yr RFA
2022 2nd round pick

Cap out $5M / Cap In $7.50M

More than enough cap space with Muzzin's LTIR and still leaving approx $3M if want to upgrade 4C.

McLeod to play on L2 with Tavares and Nylander. He has speed, size, physicality and defensive awareness. Could be the perfect fit for this line.

Gio can definitely fill that top 4LD spot with either Holl/Lyubushkin. Plus opportunity to resign Gio for $3/$3.5M is both agree to.

Lines
Bunting Matthews Marner
Nylander Tavares McLeod
Mikheyev Kampf Kase
Simmonds Engvall Speeza
Options: Anderson/Steeves

Rielly Brodie
Gio Holl
Sandin Lyubushkin
Lily

Not sure if Jersey or Seattle would be on board with these acquisitions or whether the evaluations make complete sense.
I think this would help the Leafs moving forward.

Thoughts?

Leafs may not be using all of Muzzin’s LTIR money so it won’t work.

@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) .
