Toronto Trades

Winnipeg Trades

Bottom 9 depth trade Jets need a RWinger and Leafs need a Centre to spell Lindholm.

Thoughts ?

Dano is a right winger.

This trade doesn't help or hurt either team. Leivo is bigger which the Jets like but Dano is younger. I don't believe that Leivo could make the Jets as they have younger more skilled home grown players that will be given a chance at the 4th line. I hope both players get traded to teams that will give them a fair chance to play as they both have NHL talent but are with teams that are deep at their positions.

No reason for either team to make this trade. The Jets don't need Leivo and the Leafs don't need Dano.

Dano is listed as a centre, But you know better than me where he actually plays. Regardless, leafs signed Par lindholm amd Josh Jooris as options for 4th line centre on July 1st, plus just re-signed Freddy Gauthier for 2 years who I still think the management has a soft spot for and wants him to succeed but this is probably his last crack at the leafs roster before he’s just the marlies career captain.

I agree with you Unbiased Jim about Gauthier and the Leafs. This is another player that needs a trade to another team to get a fair chance to play at the NHL level, much like Petan and Dano with the Jets.

Gauthier dosent need to be traded the leafs have a open 4c spot and if he’s good enough he’ll take it. He’s just flat out not good enough for a full time position.

Jets RWing Depth.

Dano is more a Centre than a RWinger.
Jets are deep at Centre even with Stastny in Vegas.
It's a move for both players to possibly play more.
I know Leivo will play more in the Peg than with the Leafs and he deserves to play regularly.

Unless I'm mistaken he has never played centre in Winnipeg I'm not sure if he has at the NHL level at all.

Yeah, I don’t know if Gauthier needs to be traded, he’s got a spot in front of him here, just hasn’t grabbed it. The one time he really looked like he was stringing together some good games and gaining trust, he got hurt and it took him months to get another shot.

He’s a big centre (6’5 or 6’6) which there’s always a spot for, but you need to still be able to move in the league now. He’s worked on it a lot and is a far better skater than before, but still never going to be fast. Don’t know if other teams would have any more use for him than we do unfortunately.

I Watched him all through the marlies playoffs and was first row behind the bench for game 7 of the finals when they won. You hear him on the bench, winning or losing he was always talking guys up. And when they won he kinda led the celebration. guys a riot. That’s why I said AHL captain if he can’t make the NHL. Seems like a great team guy and the other players love him.

Did you actually say that little is a winger. The player who until the last couple years was the first line center for them that little.

Unbiased Jim From what you wrote Gauthier is the kind of player fans root for and hope that they can make the big team. Unfortunately time eventually runs out if a player can't crack the line-up by time they are 23 or 24.

Little has played RWing for a few years now yes.

@IJ, for sure. I hope he makes the team every year but it’s hard for him. It’s like he’s born 10 years too late lol I go to a lot of marlies games tho and if he’s a top guy there, I don’t think it’s a bad thing. He could possibly make a bigger impact for the organization Being a role model and helping our prospect pool down there then as a 4th liner.
