Ist Draft Pick + Prospect (Niemela, etc.) to Columbus for Gavrikov.

Kerfoot to Nashville for Jeannot.

Agree0 Disagree2

30 Jan 2023 17:30:15
For that package would rather go after Peeke.

30 Jan 2023 18:09:49
Peeke is not as physical as Gavrikov.

31 Jan 2023 03:11:41
I would love to see Leafs acquire Jeannot.
That said, the expiring contract of Alex Kerfoot is not likely to get it done.
Jeannot has a $800,000 cap hit for the rest of this year and is an RFA next summer so still under team control.
Contenders are offering up to 1st round picks for guys like him.
Why would Nashville want to add the $$2.7 difference in cap hit to their existing total for the rest oof this year?
I suspect it would take something like Nick Robertson and a 2024 - 1st round pick to give the Predators a reason to part with Tanner Jeannot.

And it would be well worth it in my humble opinion.
Jeannot is perfect for the Leafs.
A bigger, more physical, and more rugged Bunting!

Loved your coherent response waterbuffalo49. Thank you.
I see the same attributes to Jeannot. I would be okay moving Robertson and a draft pick for him.

01 Feb 2023 14:30:01
I'd do Robertson and a 1st for Jeannot. But would they.? Have always been high on him. Maybe try and get Lauzon aswell, physical d man with term. What that would take, I don't know. Holl and a 3rd (from ottawa) even move the needle? If tou consider Robertson and a 1st a bit of an overpay.

30 Jan 2023 13:15:06
Engvall $2.25
Robertson LTIR
Voit ELC
2023 3rd(Ott)

Domi (50% retained)$1.5M
Raddysh $.758M


Kerfoot $3.5M

Schenn $.850M

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Jan 2023 17:33:04
@RLF. dunno who Raddysh is . but is there any way we can add Lafferty to the Hawks deal as well.

Would be fine with the Schenn deal. but the fans all seem to have him on a pedestal. hopefully management does not.

30 Jan 2023 19:37:53
Loxley, shenn is probably the single most sought after rental add on any playoff bound team is looking for. He might be a a bit slower of a skater or put up points but his value is in the wear down of opponents through damaging hits. Blocks shots and plays on the PK. Essential stats for teams playing the long game.

Let's take a thought of what a 3.5m bottom 6 player like kerfoots value would actually be. You'll only really get an asset for him, from a contending team since he is a free agent after this season. To upgrade the return the leafs would have to retain 50% which being a cap team they wouldn't want to do because they would allocate that to a much better player. Next take into account how many higher skilled players are potentially available. From captians, elite wingers, even younger RFA wingers with control past this season could be available. Those factors really. dimishing the price for kerfoot. Playing him as a 3rd max with 50% retention. While a bidding war between just the Atlantic teams alone would go to a second. And if shenn were to choose of the 3 major players, it would likely be Tampa since he already has 2 cups with them tho I'll say leafs have even odds as Boston due to being drafted vs best team in the regular season.

I think the leafs could make a very serious offer for shenn, and I hope they do, but it'll take a better peice than kerfoot.

30 Jan 2023 20:57:37
@Loxley. I cannot remember if I have ever heard so much hype and value being put on a career 3rd pair D-man who was almost out of the League a couple of years ago. I am no Kerfoot fan, but he has been a mid 6 forward his whole career with 3 40+ pt seasons. When was the last time a 28 year old mid 6 forward wasn't worth a 5 year older career 3rd pair D-man.

31 Jan 2023 03:38:09
I’m sure Vancouver isn’t interested in acquiring an expiring contract for Schenn.
They are looking for a pick or a good prospect.
A 2nd round pick, an (A) prospect, or a 3rd plus a (B) prospect.
Vancouver will probably receive some such option.
Tampa is supposedly already in talks with the Canucks inquiring about Schenn.

31 Jan 2023 04:58:42
@RLF All I'm basing it on is what fans on here and cap friendly seem to think he is worth. I get your point but I don't see why Vancouver would take back UFA. think they would rather a 3rd pick. simply because he is that tough hard to play against playoff Damn. but hey if they take Kerfoot Id be ecstatic.

31 Jan 2023 05:03:22
@Hrenklin. not sure where u were going with that comment but I agreeSchenn had value for his style of play for playoffs. I think we are both on same page as I also think it will take something other than kerfoot to acquire him. at minimum a 3rd pick. I think Canucks would want a rebuilding piece for him.

31 Jan 2023 12:43:27
Kerfoot for Schenn.
I get what you guys are saying and makes sense. The other side of it is taking into account that Rutherford has said he is retooling, not rebuilding. They need top 9 forwards. Kerfoot is from BC, so a hometown boy.
Horvat is gone and not coming back. That leaves Pettersson, Miller, Kuzmenko, Pearson, Mikheyev, Beauvillier in their top 9. Garland they had healthy scratched and long rumoured they would like to move Boeser. Kerfoot would fit in nicely with the first 6 mentioned and getting him now means they can work on an extension for a player they may want to keep over a Dman that is not likely going to be on the team next year. A 3rd or even 2nd round pick does not help a retool, but Kerfoot would.
Obviously it all depends on whether or not Van has interest in Kerfoot longer term and my thoughts are that they would as his speed, PK ability and that he shouldn't cost a lot to resign (likely not even a raise), he could be a good fit and could make the trade worth it for Van.

30 Jan 2023 01:44:24
Bertuzzi for 2nd 2024 kerfoot
Chychrun for sandin Hirvonen 1st 2023 Engvall
Yotes retain 30 percent

McCabe for Voit Holl Kallgren Abruzzese
Hawks retain 30 percent

Bunting 34 88
Bertuzzi 91 16
Knies Kampf Jarnkrok
ZAR Holmberg Anderson

Rielly Brodie
Chychrun McCabe
Giordano Liljegren
Benn Timmins


Agree0 Disagree3

30 Jan 2023 14:14:23
Problem is the 3rd line again. we won't win with that 3rd line!

29 Jan 2023 18:50:12
Engvall $2.25M
Steeves AHL
Robertson LTIR

Comtois $2.037
Stolarz $.950M

Anaheim moves more toward the tank while picking up 2 prospects and an NHLer they can flip or try and re-sign as they still need some experienced players for next year.

Leafs pick up a physical LW that has had some success in the past complimenting quality players. They also get a cheap backup for Samsonov in Stolarz. Put Murray on LTIR and then assign him to the Marlies if healthy before the playoffs. Call him backup at the playoffs when roster expands and Cap doesn't count. The portion of his contract they can bury basically pays for Stolarz cap hit if he comes off LTIR.

Then 3 team trade

Erne $2.1M (Det)
2023 5th(their own back from Nash)

2023 3rd(Nash)

Kerfoot $3.5M(Tor)

Toronto picks up another physical LW for the bottom 6 and gets their 5th round pick back.

Detroit picks up a 3rd for a pending UFA bottom 6er.

Nash gets Kerfoot who adds some speed etc to the lineup without losing anyone off their roster.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Jan 2023 20:56:12
@RLF. dunno much about Erne so can't really comment.

I like the Ducks deal but don't know that sucks do it. Engvall for stolarz with Steeves as the bonus. so breaks down you Robertson for Comtois which I dunno if it's quite even. I am just so down on Robertson what with his size and constant injuries.

30 Jan 2023 02:06:40
I had it figured as Engvall for Stolarz and Robertson and Steeves for Comtois. I thought that would be enough as Doskal likes like Gibson's partner moving forward.

30 Jan 2023 17:37:29
@RLF. I guess I see Steeves as the bonus for them taking the larger cap hit on Engvall for Stolarz as both are ufa. which leaves Robertson who for me has way less value than a tough young proven nhl'er. I get Robertson might still have some potential as Leafs have not given him much of chance and how the c.v. interrupted a lot of young players careers but to me his small size and injury history really worries me. it's too bad cause he did show heart in the games he played.

31 Jan 2023 12:51:30
Loxley. I don't think Robertson has lost as much value as some/ many do. Yes, there are question marks with his ability to stay healthy, but he is still only 21. Norris, Jack Hughes etc have all had injury issues. Not uncommon for smaller skilled guys to deal with injures when they are younger. Marner has been an exception as has some others. I think there would be concern with Robertson, but the skill he possesses would still be attractive to teams. Especially those teams looking for picks/ prospects. Of course that is just my own opinion.

29 Jan 2023 18:44:56
Leafs make run for the cup!

Toronto trades Kerfoot and Sandin
Detroit for Tyler Bertuzzi

Toronto trades Engvall, Holmberg, Ty Voit and a 1st in 2023
St. Louis for O'Reilly and Barbashev

Toronto trades Holl and 5th in 2024
Seattle for Carson Soucy

Toronto trades 3rd in 2023
Vancouver for Luke Shenn

Toronto trades Murray and Simmons
Dallas for Anton Khudobin and a 6th in 2024


Bunting Matthews Nylander
Barashov Tavares Marner
Bertuzzi O'Reilly Mcmann
Hunt Kampf Austin-Reese

Rielly Shenn
Soucy Brodie
Giordano Llyigren
Benn Timmons


Agree0 Disagree2

30 Jan 2023 14:19:35
It would take much more to get O'Reilly and Barbashev!

29 Jan 2023 16:47:11
Toronto & Sanjose
Pierre Engvall, Conor Timmins, Nick Robertson, Semyon Der-Argushintse
Timo Meier, Jaycob Megna & 5th round pick.
This trade gets San Jose younger & Allows Taveras to slide down to 3rd line Center moving Nyland to second line center with Meier on wing.

Agree1 Disagree2

29 Jan 2023 18:50:06
Toronto is not trading Timmons, they likely resign him very soon.

29 Jan 2023 18:58:17
Even if Toronto wants to keep Timmins, that is not even getting Meier.

29 Jan 2023 20:53:52
If you don't want the players assume another team doesn't either.

29 Jan 2023 20:58:06
Not even close to getting Megan let alone Meier.

29 Jan 2023 05:00:44
Leafs - Kerfoot and a 3rd
Chicago - Domi
Would like to see Domi get a shot here.

Agree2 Disagree1

29 Jan 2023 18:33:22
Great trade love Domi bleed blue and white. He’d be the warrior for this team.

30 Jan 2023 23:04:34
only Beavis and Butthead- our 2 idiot leaders can keep their jobs after zero performance results year after year
The problem is the fans. if they'd stop going, you'd see a change. but that's never gonna happen How can our 2 idiot leaders not see how Tampa, Boston are constructed skill, grit, and nastiness doubt Beavis and Butthead will ever get it. best they'll do is being in 1 tough guy.

29 Jan 2023 04:40:17
Reporting a deal is done already between Canucks and Leafs. Dubas has been in Vancouver watching the past two games seated with Ray Shero of the Canucks. NOW if you believe these reports the bigger question is who are the players on the move

Big trade or small trade.

Small trade. Schenn coming to T. O. pick going back. 2nd or 3rd maybe. Or maybe a b prospect or maybe 1 of each

BIG TRADE: Schenn and Horvat to T. O
Rielly, Kerfoot, 1st (2024) to VCR.
Both Rielly and Kerfoot VCR boys they need some local boys win back some fan base.

Agree1 Disagree3

29 Jan 2023 15:49:56
If there’s a deal there I would think it’s a depth move probably schenn hopefully not myers.

29 Jan 2023 18:51:16
Rielly is not going anywhere, he has a full NMC and took a pay cut to stay in Toronto.

30 Jan 2023 00:02:01
I don't thin Rielly has his NMC kick until much further in to his Contract check Capfriendly. I think I say I think I read it kicked in 2028. As far as the pay cut not the leafs problem. If doesnt have a NMC to bad on him signer beware.

30 Jan 2023 12:44:36
1strndexit. Rielly has a full NMC until the 28-29 season which it then turns to a 10 team no trade list. He is not likely going anywhere unless he wants to.
