I'll bite on Nylander/Tanev but I'd make a 1st manditory as IMO Tanev isn't a good enough base.

Leafs: William Nylander and 2nd 2019

Canucks: Tanev and Top 5 protected 1st 2019 ( continues until pick is outside of top 5 )

Leafs get a potentially early pick and the deffensman they need. Vancouver gets a potential franchise altering player who could challenge for a scoring tital in the future.


This could challenge


I would not make a trade with Vancouver unless Demko,Hughes or 1st 2019 was in the deal.

Easy no from the Canucks. With the draft being in Vancouver, there is zero chance they trade their first pick.

Nylander "franchise altering player". Lol 😆.

Nylander being a franchise altering playwr is as ridiculous as your take on Trouba memarcusjoe.

@itookdon Let's not turn this into another Leafs begging for Trouba thread.

It was vb that referred to Nylander as a ranchise altering player. Joe was mocking him for it. As he should.


Tanev is garbage. I have a very hard time seeing someone who has spent that much time being injured ever returning to previous form, let alone reach full potential. You really want to trade out 1RW for an injury riddled defenseman and a 1st? Plus you want to give them a 2nd for doing them this favor?

Leafs pass.

@leafsgm. He’s saying vbb calling Nylander that is equal to Marcus calling Trouba a superstar.

Ok. You’re right. Lol. I get it now. They’re both right.

Never said I wanted Trouba memarcusjoe. There are at least 10 other dmen i would want before him that might in the slightest be available.

Actually though Trouba is far, far, far closer to a superstar (which I've never called him) than Nylander is to a "franchise altering player" lol. 😆

Unless by "franchise altering" you mean that he'll alter your franchise for the worse because you'd be overpaying for a soft as butter winger?

Memarcusjoe, go back and read a bunch of your posts on him please. You talk the guy up as much as anybody does there favorite player or team. His claim is ridiculous about Nylander, but you should not be commenting based on your undying love and support for Trouba.

Turning down offers for Trouba that make the Jets worse as I do, is not the same as calling Nylander a "franchise altering player". Lol

Go back and re-read my posts on Trouba, I've never once called him anything more than what he is. A young, top pairing defenseman.

I know things like the truth don't go over well on this site, but there you have it. Please try to be truthful and not exaggerate when you are claiming another poster said something.

"Potential franchise altering player"
That's got to be the best thing I've ever read on here.
Way too funny.

Any player who you can put up a PPG is a franchise altering player. He can’t be a face of a Franchise like A Crosby, Dahlin or Price he can be a player similar to Paniran or Kessel.

Lol Kessel was franchise altering. Leafs had to get rid of him to get better.

Joe you’ve also said that Trouba is better than Reilly. We all know that Toronto needs defense but I don’t see your center depth tearing up the score sheet. I can admit the leafs are not a perfect team, can you say that the mighty jets are not a perfect team? I didn’t think so. You probably think Scheifele/ Roslovic are the next Crosby/ Malkin. No need to be ignorant every time you post.

@Leafs17, now what are you on about? What does Nylander not being a "franchise altering player" have to do with the Jets center depth?

No, I agree the Jets are not a perfect team, but as much as it pains Leaf fans to admit it, they Jets are a very good team, deeper and better than Toronto. Even with our center depth, we still had over 100 points and were 2nd in the NHL before Stastny arrived. So, it's not like center is a weakness that is killing us.

As for Reilly, Trouba is better than him in every category except PP points. That's why I say that.

I've tried giving civil responses on here many times, but when it is something the homers here, yourself included, don't want to hear, they normally respond with name calling, yourself included, because they can't back up their homerism with facts. So, sometimes when a Leafs homer makes a stupid statement like vvbb did, I like to give a little shot back.

Or if a poster outright lies about something and tries to attribute that to me as doncherry did above, I feel I have the right to call them out on it.

Bahaha! There’s not a single person on this site that has ever said the jets are not a good team. You say the leafs are “begging” for Trouba on a daily basis so I like to point out some things you can’t see about your own team. You and your sidekick have been called homers by every fan base on this site so you don’t have a leg to stand on. Have a nice day.

Leafs17 I feel like you’re putting down Schifele here he belongs in the Mathews/ Tavares tier or atleast very close.

@Leafs17, right. They call us homers because we turn down trades that the Jets can't afford cap wise or make the Jets worse. So, that somehow makes us homers I guess?

Just imagine the furor on this site had Islandjet or I said an equal Jets player, Ehlers, was a potential "franchise altering player". This place would have melted down, but when a Leafs homer says it, we should just let it go as fact.

I give you credit though for exiting a discussion for once without name calling. You have a nice day too.

Not at all vbb’s. I’m putting down the #2/ 3 combo. Scheifele is a stud. The jet homers (not Alpaca) like to bash the leafs any chance they can. They will tell you that Matthews/ Tavares are decent. I do watch hockey, I know the jets are a good team but these guys think their sh*t doesn’t stink.
