TOR: Nazem Kadri, Connor Brown, 1st or 2nd 2020

PIT: Phil Kessel

Just cause I want maximum chaos and this would light Toronto and Toronto media on fire. Especially with a Toronto lineup of

Johnsson - Matthews - Kapanen
Hyman - Tavares - Marner
Marleau/Moor - Nylander - Kessel
Marleau/Moor - Gauthier - (Marlies or new version of Ennis)

MAXIMUM CHAOS!!!!

Why? To all of this. Why is Kessel on the third line? How would this work with Toronto's salary? Kessel's contact has a NTC and a NMC clause, why would he want to go back to Toronto were the worst years of his career were?


2.) 19 Apr 2019 19:58:32
@TyBa4

1. He'd want to go back to Toronto to win 2. He wouldn't have a choice cause I would assume Toronto is not one of the 8 teams on his no-trade list. Kadri and Brown are basically the equivalent of Kessel's salary, and Kessel is a top RW in the league which Toronto would love to have. He's on the third line because Matthews is a scorer and putting two snipers on one line wouldn't work, Nylander is more of a playmaker and would probably work well with Kessel.

Cap space from the leafs POV makes it a no go. Trades will need to be made to replace/ Make space for the following.

-Mitch Marner ( 10+ million )
-Jake Gardiner ( Dermotte takes his spot but someone needs to play on the third pairing )
- 1RD to replace/ resign ( Hanisey )
- Kappanen ( around 5 mil )
-Johanson ( around 4 mil )

According spotrac. com the leafs will have roughly 27 million in cap space so this could be manageable but it’ll be cutting it close.


4.) 19 Apr 2019 23:25:27
Vbbb use cap friendly to get your info it's much more accurate.


5.) 20 Apr 2019 07:21:39
Cap friendly doesn’t know what players will sign for habby.


6.) 20 Apr 2019 14:06:51
Capfriendly only show cap for this season and I wasn’t feeling like doing the calculations myself.


7.) 20 Apr 2019 19:54:01
Did you ever look at it? It shows the caps for 7 seasons on my devices. And leafs 17 who said they would show what players will sign for? They are a cap site not a magical wizardry site.


8.) 20 Apr 2019 21:30:33
Well maybe it’s different on the computer.


9.) 20 Apr 2019 22:33:49
I don’t know what I was thinking habby. I read something backwards. My apologies, I thought maybe you did think cap friendly was magical.


10.) 21 Apr 2019 01:35:23
It's the same on iPad too vbb not sure about on phone though.

Leafs: Auston Matthews, Andreas Johnsson (and/or) Kasperi Kapanen, 1st round pick some year?

Edmonton Oilers: Connor McDavid, Jesse Puljujarvi

I know this would never happen, but it's kind of realistic and fun. It would also be insane. Leafs may get to keep one of Johnsson or Kapanen.

What do you think?

CWGS

1.) 03 Apr 2019 22:39:50
Leafs would have to add to that.


2.) 03 Apr 2019 22:47:03
Add Reilly, then maybe. I personally still wouldnt.


3.) 04 Apr 2019 01:12:23
Its going to be Auston + Mo/ Mitch for Connor by himself. i'd rather build round our core tbh than give that up for Connor, but Edmonton won't sell him any cheaper.


4.) 04 Apr 2019 18:14:42
Thats not enough for Connor, but to just throw it out there to see what you guys think, how far off is the value in a Matthews+Nylander for McDavid?


5.) 04 Apr 2019 20:49:22
Matthews + Nylander = not a chance lol at all. Especially with the season Nylander is having lmao brutal.


6.) 05 Apr 2019 03:11:34
Nylander turns the puck over every time he touches the puck most games. He should’ve been a big boy and not listened to daddy when he decided to hold out.


7.) 05 Apr 2019 15:44:13
The thing is neither team would make this trade oilers would not trade mcdavid and leafs won't pay what it will cost.


8.) 07 Apr 2019 13:11:43
Leafs would be better with McDavid but at what cost?
Leafs are strong at Centre and RWing but much thinner at LWing, the Leafs are strong at LDefence but thin on RDefence, so in the off season those are the areas they should look at, at the same time they have Drafted and signed some good RHanded DMen but they probably aren't ready for another 2 years from this season, so to me the McDavid possible Trade won't be what they are looking into even though he would be great in the Blue and White.


9.) 08 Apr 2019 10:07:15
Lame.
McJesus is great. Is Mathews reeeeallly that far behind?!? No.
The "upgrade" from mathews to mcdavid isn't worth it in this "fun" deal.

CAR: Dougie Hamilton

TOR: Jake Gardiner, Connor Brown

Seems like CAR don't want him cause they got Pesce and Fault and TVR, they could use a LD as well. TOR need RD (of course) could work the D pairings well.

TOR: Zaitsev

NYI: 3rd or Scott Mayfield +pick

Lou would definitely take Zaitsev, he has value and GMs know that. Zaitsev just doesn't get the love in TO because Babcock doesn't use him the way he should be used. He will succeed on another team.

Thoughts?

Leafs homer much?


2.) 22 Feb 2019 13:29:46
Why would Carolina and the Islanders make these one sided trades? Gardiner is a UFA and Zaitsev is a cap black hole.


3.) 22 Feb 2019 15:02:04
Leaf homer indeed.


4.) 22 Feb 2019 18:40:54
TOR adds to get rid of Zaitsev's contract.
The difference in value between Hamilton and Gardiner is definitely bigger than Brown.

Pittsburgh: Phil Kessel, Tanner Pearson

Columbus: Artemi Panarin

Pittsburgh are going to have some issues this summer with the extensions that they've signed and players they have to resign. Bringing in a guy like Panarin who you could possibly resign with the salary that will be sent to Columbus could work really well. They could also just free up the cap space to make an additional add this summer (maybe someone like Duchene or Stone if they don't resign?)

Phil Kessel has had issues with the Pens before and I don't think he'd have Columbus on his no trade list. Tanner Pearson is a cap dump and someone who could fit in well on Columbus' bottom 6 or maybe on the second line. I understand that they are in the same division, but this situation could be way too good for those two GMs to pass up.

I'm curious to see what you guys think. Is it fair value? Too much or too little? Which side?

CWGS

1.) 31 Jan 2019 12:22:13
If Pitt is going to have issues resigning players how does resigning Panarin for the money shipped out in this trade help that? I think it’s an interesting proposal because Columbus will need a legit scoring forward after he’s gone.

TOR: Connor Brown

EDM: Zach Kassian, 4th

Leafs get some grit and a pick. Edmonton get a quality winger who has some history with McDavid. Leafs also save a little bit on the cap.

Leafs: Zaitsev, pick or prospect (if necessary)

NYI: Adam Mcquad

Solid RD for the leafs on a cheaper contract that expires at the end of the year. Gives NYR a decent Defenceman who could turn it around with them or just help them lose even more. New York also get some sort of prospect if they won’t do it 1for1.

Thoughts?

CWGS

1.) 30 Jan 2019 05:16:07
Benning for Brown.


2.) 30 Jan 2019 06:56:06
I like both of deals. I suggested a Brown/ Kassian deal a while back. I’ve also talked about McQuaid because he can be had for cheap. I don’t see NY taking Zaitsev’s contract but either way McQuaid is the perfect add for the playoffs. McQuaid/ Hainsey/ Dermott can finish out the bottom pair. Good ideas.


3.) 30 Jan 2019 18:31:12
benning for brown would be amazing.


4.) 30 Jan 2019 19:25:04
Benning is a solid Dman in the ECHL. Brown is a solid 3rd liner in the NHL.


5.) 31 Jan 2019 04:31:48
And you’re a solid loser.

I posted something similar like a week ago and thought I might change it up a bit.

Leafs: Auston Matthews, Andreas Johnsson (and/or) Kasperi Kapanen, 1st round pick some year?

Edmonton Oilers: Connor McDavid, Milan Lucic, Jesse Puljujarvi

I know this would never happen, but it's kind of (maybe?) realistic and entertaining. It would also be insane. Leafs may get to keep one of Johnsson or Kapanen. You could also argue throwing in Zaitsev or Brown on top of this.

What do you think?

CWGS

1.) 09 Apr 2019 02:03:26
I think the biggest challenge facing the Leafs (and Tampa, Winnipeg, etc. ) is the salary cap and trying to pay (keep) your stars but also surround them with a good enough supporting cast to be able to compete for a championship for as long as possible. To do so, every dollar of cap space needs to be used efficiently. As good as McDavid is, Lucic is pure dead weight at this point (and frankly, one of the reasons Edmonton missed the playoffs again despite having the best player in the world and a 50 goal scorer in Draisaitl) . Unless there was a guaranteed way to bury/ rid yourself of that contract, it’s almost like what’s the point.


2.) 09 Apr 2019 05:31:12
Leafs would have to add Sandin, or Lillegren. and maybe more. I've watched quite a few Oilers and Leafs games. there is a larger gap between McDavid and Mathews than I originally thought.
As much as it would be great to add a player like McDavid, best for Leafs to stay the course, they are miles ahead of Edmonton with what they have, Tavares as number one Center, Mathews as 2nd line Ctr. pretty damn good. would have to alter the team to much to get McDavid.

Okay Leafs Nation, we need to chill. William Nylander is a damn good hockey player who is going to be on a damn good contract in the future. Yes, he has struggled for the first month that he has played, but remember, it's only been a month and a half since he started playing in the NHL again. Nylander's contract is very good and will be considered in the same conversation as Pastas deal is today. So stop trying to trade him for a bunch of scrubs. The Leafs have some very good up and coming prospects in Liljegren and Sandin (who probably won't be traded either). Chill out for a bit. Give him some time. And just breath. The worst case scenario for the Leafs is that they lose Gardiner, which is okay. Dermott is going to be good and Rosen looks very promising as well. We have a bright future and this year isn't the only year they can win. The Leafs will be competitors for years to come. Trust me.

CWGS

1.) 25 Jan 2019 05:08:51
And all it took was a win over the worse team in the league ATM. nah just kidding lol most of what you said is true.


2.) 25 Jan 2019 07:09:23
I don’t think anyone said Nylander is not a good hockey player. We all know the leafs need defense. With the leafs depth at forward and the cap situation coming, Nylander would be the guy I’d trade for a top defenseman. Also, nobody was trading him for scrubs (Parayko, Trouba, Pietrangalo) . In case you haven’t been following along, leaf fans get accused of the exact opposite. I personally would take Kapanen over Nylander as he’ll demand much less money and works his ass off. Yes the leafs will lose Gardiner. Yes the leafs will be competitors for years to come, we trust you.


 

 

18 Oct 2017 23:44:25
I doubt this would happen buts it's an idea I had.

Leafs: JVR, Bozak, pick, and/ or prospect

Avalanche: One of Duchene, Barrie, or Johnson.

The Leafs are unfortunately going to trade Brown. But there is no way in hell Toronto would bring Talbot back. Sparks is good, fans just don't like him because he replaced McElhinney. If you want Brown picks or a Defenceman are coming back. With that being said, I think if it was Brown and Zaitsev for Talbot and a decent pick it might work (say a 2nd or a couple of thirds).

I probably should have added that I'm not sure if he would be signed or not for this deal. If he isn't signed it's probably a bit much.

I think that it would be more likely the Leafs make this deal if it's Gardiner in the deal. I know he's a UFA and he doesn't have as much value as Gardiner but you could remove Ferland very easily, considering the Leafs really don't need him for what they need on their left ring and the leafs right wing is to strong. Remove the first and I think the leafs would do it and the Canes would consider it. Although it would make next year even worse for the Leafs in terms of the cap. So,

To Leafs:
Dougie Hamilton

To Canes:
Jake Gardiner
Connor Brown
Jeremy Bracco
