Leafs trade Nylander, 1st
Dallas trades Shore, Janmark, Tufte, Spezza

Marleau/ Matthews/ Kapanen
Hyman/ Tavares/ Marner
Shore/ Kadri/ Janmark
Johnsson/ Spezza/ Brown
*Leivo, Lindholm, Ennis

Shore and Janmark combined give us Nylander’s goal/ point totals. Tufte is a highly rated prospect expected to play NHL next year, and I really like his size. Spezza is cap dump to make the salary work.

Nylander = Shore + Janmark
1st = Tufte
Spezza = Cap Dump

The Kadri line has looked pretty bad so far this year. This gives 3rd line a makeover. Maybe new partners will light a fire under Kadri’s ass and get him going. These guys are all good players, and cheap. Cap issues shouldn’t be a problem next year anymore with Nylander gone.

Rather try an upgrade the d than downgrade Nylander to a collection of third liners. Plus we throw in a first? Nah, imo.

So Nylander and a 1st for Spezza and 3 AHL players sounds great where do I sign? The 1st has more value then that whole Package. Tufte= bust very underwhelming statistically look up his stat line. I guarantee Shore does not come close to making the leafs line up. Kadri and Bozak combined = McDavids statistically is that must mean the oilers make that trade right?

Depth is what wins cups. And this trade brings in extra depth. Tufte’s stats have gotten better since he was drafted, not worse. My understanding is he could be playing NHL already, but went back to school one more year to complete his education. Nylander’s value is dropping by the day as it is becoming more and more obvious he was beneficiary of playing with Matthews, not the other way around. It’s also a cost saving manoeuvre. At this point, I have a hard time seeing us getting a player of equal value in a one-for-one trade anymore and believe if Leafs trade Nylander it will be for a package of some sort. Or, as TopShelfSlappers suggests, for a defenseman. But i’ve already posted enough Nylander for defensemen trades, and just wanted to throw something else out for a change. Keep it fresh. These guys aren’t bad players at all. You guys are undervaluing them. Or overvaluing Nylander, who most definitely will never contend for a scoring title. Ha!
