Toronto: Connor Brown, Timothy Liljegren, Matt Martin, Nikita Ziatsev and 1st 2018

Montreal: Shea Weber*, Micheal Mccaron, Jordie Benn and 2nd 2019

* 1 million retaind on contract ( 6.8 million cap hit.

Toronto: the leafs desperately need a top 2 Elite dman and Weber is that. His skating may not be as good as it once was but paired with Morgan Rielly he would excel. He is excellent in both ends of the ice and he will be able to log top minutes ( 25 min ) for a few more seasons atleast. While his contract may be considered toxic as the cap rises it'll look better. Leafs also rid them selves of Martins contract.

Montreal: the Canadian are not a contender Weber will never win a cup in Montreal. The Canadians need to retool. They bring back a young top 6 player in Brown, An A level prospect, a Replacement for Weber and a 1st to contribute to their rebuild.

** Before Weber was injured he was on pace for 50 points while playing a great two way game.

Sabatoge our team? Weber would help the leafs out tremendously a top 10 dman in the nhl with no corner stone pieces going the other way.

Eek that's bad for Toronto, want nothing to do with Webers declining play and huge contract.

Weber is sick, that contract is terrible. No way I would give up cost controlled assets like brown (3 years 2.1mill) zaitsev (6 x 4.5) and liljegren on an ELC plus a first for it. Martin and marincin have no value but neither does anything else coming back besides Weber other than the 2nd obviously. Easentially it’s those 3 players and a 1st for Weber and a second and I wouldn't touch it.

I don't see where there is anything coming back the habs way to make it worthwhile. sure liligren might still turn into to something decent down the road. but that's about it. The late 1st has some value but the habs have enough bottom 6 forwards like brown and martin. And zaitsevs contract looks worse and worse every game he plays no chance in hell habs accept this for a top pair dman.

Habby I think you underrate Brown he’s a cost controlled top 6 winger he’s still young and has potential to be Mike Hoffman esq. Zaitsev has had the highest TOI in both playoff games so far he’s a top 4 dman in at a cheap price. He’ll never wow you but he does the little things right and he has a hard shot.

Mc jesus christ u are just a hab hater and always had been this is more than fair Weber is top 10 for sure in the world Matt Martin is dump low 1st and zaitsev looks like he isn't worth that contract and we don't need him we have petry and connor brown is good not going to lie there but he have so many wingers why add more lilijgren is good Hanzal got a 1st second and 4th for a rental and much worse player so anyone that is hella biased vs habs fan because they do it for fun should shut up and watch hockey.

VBB, Brown is a good player and on a great contract, but is not a similar player to Hoffman in any way and will never be. He’s a middle six, very reliable defensive player with some offensive upside, not a sniper lol

MTL4LIFE, how is this, in any way, comparable to the Martin Hanzal trade? Lol has to be the dumbest comparison to bring up. Ones a centre, ones a Dman. One was at the trade deadline, one would be offseason. One was a rental in an expiring contract, one has a big cap hit for like 8 or 9 more years taking till he’s 41+. Get a clue rather than just calling people haters because you have no info or sense.

As much as I like Weber, I think this would be a bad move for Toronto. Any realistic leaf fan should know that Toronto is a couple solid defenseman away from being a contender. Liljegren could be one of them. I don’t know why leaf fans are so quick to trade away a RH defenseman that was expected to go 3rd overall before dropping because of an off season. I think the leafs success the past couple years is making people want to rush the rebuild. Their core is still so young, there is no need to take on a big contract like Weber’s.

That's ok to say vbbbvvbb and I can't predict whether he will be or not. But I do know he's had a decent amount of time playing in a top six role with a pretty good offensive team in toronto and he had 30 something points last year and 28 this year I think. if I came on here and said charles hudon has the potential to be a mike Hoffman I'd be crucified lol. Like I said earlier habs have enough of those players hudon. Daneult byron just to name 3 who are at least just as good and IMO better then brown. Liligren still has the potential to be a top 4 dman but he really didn't show me much this year I give him a pass though considering it was his first year in North America and I assume he will be better next year. the first is a late one and zaitsev is a 3rd pair dman getting paid2nd pair money. Liligren and the first would be all I would even want and you know as we'll as I do that don't get you a top pair dman.

Unbiased Jim I’m not saying brown is a 1 dimensional sniper I’m saying he can put up Hoffman like numbers if he reaches his full potential 25 Goals 30 Assists isn’t unreasonable.

@habby, brown doesn’t play top 6. He started the season on the 4th line and has been on the 3rd line since then (bozak a and doesn’t play on the PP. he’s a great 3rd line player that could be moved up if needed.

He has spent just as much time as the 3 habs players I've mentioned playing a top 6 role. He played over 16 mins a game last year and 15 mins a game this year. His numbers doesn't suggest he will be anything more then a bottom 6 winger and habs have no need for that. Weber is still a top pair dman sure there is always concern after a player has season ending surgery but nobody in montreal seems to be too concerned about him coming back and being just as good as he was last year. habs have lots of cap space and the cap is going up so there is absolutely no need to make this trade unless the goal is to get another lottery pick next year.

how is it because Weber isn't a rental he's a #1D and also had much more value than hanzal why would we trade someone 1000000 times better for that and take dead cap and hanzal is a #3 center.

That’s fine if you don’t want him as a player or like him. I’m just saying you claimed he has had lots of top six minutes with good players, and that’s not true. Matthews Nylander and hyman are the number 1 line and have been for 2 years. Kadri with marner and marleau is the second line and brown started with Dominic Moore and Matt Martin and now is with bozak and JVR since. That’s third line. I’m not saying they’re bad players, but bozak does not create chances like Matthews and Kadri do, and JVR is a finisher, not much else. So implying that brown got to ride shotgun with top players is not true. You don’t have to like the trade but don’t make things up to put down the guy you don’t want back lol.

All I was trying to say is the habs have a enough players like connor brown don't need another.
