I would love to see Leafs and Chychrun on Defense and add either Barbashev or Sam Bennett to play on the second line!

Willy Nylander and Nick Ritchie to Montreal for
Josh Anderson and Ben Chiarot

Leafs get tougher to play against but Montreal gets the best player. In two years both Mathews and Willy are up for contract and they won't both be resigned.

Most of us on here wanted Josh Anderson to be in the blue and white before the Domi trade. I'm a big fan of his but, I don't like that contract, I don't think he lives up to it.

Chariot the Habs can keep.

We have absolutely 0 need for chiarot. Why has no one grasped this ultra simple concept.

3.) 13 Feb 2022 22:29:27
I do like Anderson though!

I don’t hate this deal I like Anderson wish the leafs grabbed him we get to dump Ritchie but for me to make this deal I’d want retention on Chiarot so the leafs could add a better blue liner and have him in the third pair.

Chiarot is having a bad year but he has his place come playoff time. Holl looks so lost out there he makes Martin Maricin look good. Also Chiarot is a UFA after this year. He's from the GTA area so he may resign cheap in Toronto.

I really like this deal. If you can get the Habs to also retain a bit on Chiarot, I think it could work out to be a really good deal for the Leafs. When Chiarot has been used properly, he is an effective big man. He is a 2nd pair D at best though and Montreal has been using him on the top pair. In Toronto he is going to be a possible 3rd pair guy and he should be fine there. Anderson makes $1.5M less than Willy and brings that element that Willy doesn't, but can still chip in 20 goal seasons with high end players imo. Ritchie gets moved off the books foe next season and add the $1.5M less that Anderson makes and the Leafs have $4M more in cap space next season if they let Chiarot walk.
Solid deal that both teams should consider.

@marner4life Chiarot is having a bad year this year but his stats show he hasn’t been good for atleast two years including their cup run.

8.) 14 Feb 2022 14:22:02
I know it is likely just my opinion, but I don't think Chiarot is as bad as many make him out to be. He is not a 1st pair D-man and the Habs have tried to make him into one, so of course he doesn't look very good. It would be like the Leafs using Holl as a 1st pair D. The Jets used him properly and he was an effective big guy on the 3rd pair or as a complimentary #4. Not great, but effective. Put him in a position to succeed and he probably looks much better. Stats only have value if you take into account the context in which they were created. Stop sheltering Liljegren and put him on the top pair against the toughest matchups and people will be screaming to get rid of him.

9.) 14 Feb 2022 14:58:43
So giving this deal some more thought and think it makes a lot of sense.

But only if Chariot’s left ankle is okay and he agrees to an extension at no more than his current salary.

Nylander will want more money in two years and Anderson had 4 more years I believe. Anderson, while not the scorer Nylander is, has enough positive attributes to replace Nylander. We certainly like his physicality and makes the Leafs more difficult to play against.

Chariot is not the only Hab to be playing poorly and honestly I haven’t seen enough of him to say this is a correct statement.

I do remember last year’s playoff where he was very strong if not dominant clearly the front of the net and causing forwards to enter the corners a little slower.

Instead of retention get a pick. Habs are getting the best player and would prefer giving up a puck to retention because they have cap issues.

10.) 14 Feb 2022 15:57:10
Montreal doesn't have cap issues if they use their LTIR and they will also move any pending UFA they can for picks/ prospects to open up cap space.

NYR Trade R Strome, Braden Schneider and 2022 1st round pick
Toronto Trades M.Marner and Justin Holl

2nd trade
Arizona trades Lawson Crouse and Jakob Chychrun
Toronto trades 2022 1st, NYR 2022 1ST
Travis Dermott, Ilya Mikheyev, Petr Mrazek

This helps Leafs with cap and brings in some decent players!


1.) 15 Jan 2022 11:48:52
Need to add to the Marner package. At least another high end prospect or pick. He's an elite player, they usually fetch 2 1st round picks ++.

2.) 15 Jan 2022 12:13:36
Marners $10.9mil is the reason i didn't add more. I think we won't get max value with that contract he has.

3.) 15 Jan 2022 12:52:36
Would LOVE to see the lines that you were thinking with this trade.

Was thinking Leafs could pickup Chara cheap as a number 6 dman. He's slow but still hits, fights and blocks shots. Pair him with Sandin. Sandin can make plays and Chara can cleanup the mess!


1.) 17 Feb 2022 11:50:43
Unlike the 70’s there are very few fights in the playoffs.
You don’t mention how you obtain Chara.

I could see Kampf moved this year. At $2.4 million Holmberg can play center for league minimum.

Now I like this proposal. I’m a big McBain fan too. He could be great in Toronto!

Comparing numbers in OHL means very little. Connor Brown had like 130 pts in the OHL and he can’t keep a job in the nhl.

Andersson the physical monster with 3 hits in 10 games this year. Wow. And the most hits in a full season being 63. That just screams physical .
We don’t need another offensive dman, that’s what he is nothing more. We need a PHYSICAL stay at home dman that can clear the crease, block shots and is good on pk!

You traded Robertson and still have him on the third line!
