I would think Nashville would want more than that. A UFA and a decent winger doesn't get you a top flight defenseman, especially if Nashville has to throw in a pick.

The leafs can’t afford his contract. Nylander is a little above decent Joe, unless you consider the “Winnipeg untouchables”, Ehlers and Connor decent.

Nylander= “ decent winger” lol what?

Sorry guys. I didn't mean "decent" as an insult. I just meant that there is no way Nylander is the main piece if you're going after Subban. Just like Ehlers wouldn't be.

Then what would be? Someoje like Laine? No way.

In terms of value, ignoring team needs, I would say it would need to be a very good center or defenseman, plus picks or prospects depending on who the main piece is. Wingers just don't carry the value in general to land a top defenseman, simply because it is far easier to find a good winger than it is a top defenseman. Especially a right handed one.

Subban isn’t the D I’d want to bring in anyway. Makes a ton of money, and I think drama follows him, whether it be his fault or not. Big personality and that rubs people the wrong way sometimes.

If we could get him cheap assets wise, and he didn’t make $9 mill, then it might be worth the risk but that just won’t happen. However to give up good assets, pay him that kind of money and risk dressing room issues, no thanks.

I can understand that. I don't really see why the Leafs would want to target Subban. He would kill your salary cap moving forward.

Nah, i relatively think a guy like subban wouldn't pull a laine/ matthews/ barzal type guy. I just can't see it. It would havr to be a Nylander/ Ehlers esque player.

I think subban is in that ehlers/ Nylander class as well value wise, then add on the RHD premium over a winger and he probably gets a slightly better return. But definitely not laine/ matthews type players lol that’s just not going to happen. Both those guys could score 50 goals and are 20/ 21 years old. No way a really good 29 year old Dman making $9mill gets you that lol.
