Lupul apologized and took his leafs cheaters comment down and said he would not be looking for a second physical from outside the organization.
A rumor came out that he apologized so fast because the Leafs have some crazy dirt on him that they would release.

New rumor and now has been confirmed is that the league itself will investigate into this themselves. Could be major major conaoqiences to the Leafs if he is deemed healthy to play.

22 Sep 2017 12:51:48
What could the leafs expose on him?

I think the whole situation is overblown.

I think he apologized quickly because he realized his comments were solely anger related. physicals don't just test a players 'healthiness' as related to injuries, they also test the players healthiness in terms of game shape.

Looking at Lupul, he looks like he enjoyed himself over the year and did not care about training/ routines. He lost his fitness basically. He may be free of his injury, but he also may have not been phyiscally fit/ adequate to play.

22 Sep 2017 15:56:12
That's not from me.
That's pretty much copy and pasted from Jon Shannon and Elliote Friedmans separate comments.
I myself think Lupul is healthy enough to play, and so do some of the other analyst who work in the NHL.

Even though Demers ended up going to Arizona, the Gudbranson for Demers rumours got out showing that Vancouver does not value Gud as one of their top 4 going forward. He will also be a UFA at the end of the year.

TO TOR: Gudbranson

To VAN: Bracco and Rychel

Vancouver continues to stock prospects. Toronto gets a RD that can add some real muscle to their line up and PK. While all the talk is about who will win the #6 LD spot, I think the Leafs are also worried about Connor Carrick so they need to make a move.

21 Sep 2017 07:04:56
Pretty interesting but I don't think giving up Bracco is worth it maybe if it was Bracco straight up for him.

21 Sep 2017 11:45:47
If Demers can go for McGinn, then I'd say this is pretty fair.
Maybe a small, teeny add from the Canucks? Like a 5th?

Cause Rychel sucks. He takes way too many penalties. But teams like him because of his relative youth.

20 Sep 2017 23:01:15
OTT: kyle turris/2nd 2018/ cody ceci/hogberg/ max macormick

Toronto: komarov / mitch marner

21 Sep 2017 01:10:55
Man. come on.

21 Sep 2017 01:12:42
This can't be a serious post.

21 Sep 2017 01:39:40
and what in that package is worth mitch marner? trade 2 wingers for a center we don't need? ceci the answer for torontos d? trying to figure this out from torontos end. and i cant, because its horrible.

21 Sep 2017 03:07:19
No from both sides. jesus. you just gave away our whole cupboard.

21 Sep 2017 07:06:51
I see Turris, Ceci. If i was giving you Marner & Komarov. i'd ask for Hoffman & Brown

20 Sep 2017 02:45:35
Nathan Horton to AVS for future considerations

AVS rebuilding

Gives Leafs cap to sign young stars in offseason.

20 Sep 2017 04:32:47
Lol and Avs do this why?

20 Sep 2017 05:33:35
Lmao wtf did I actually just read.

20 Sep 2017 14:11:49
No incentive for avs to do this #1. And secondly most NHL contracts are insured for around 80% if the player has a career ending injury. Nathan Hortons was less than 20% insured because of his injury history, and he is owed 14.1 mill actual cash over the next 3 years. which means the team is paying him 11.5 mill out of there own pocket to have him not play. Not many owners are okay with doing this, the leafs are. Don't think the avs are, Unless you're giving them a top prospect to go with it. Dave bollands Contract was insured at 80% and it still cost the panthers Lawson Crouse to ditch it.

20 Sep 2017 14:50:44
Need to throw in like Kappy buddy. No ones taking Horton for free.

20 Sep 2017 15:56:08

20 Sep 2017 16:06:32
Leafs don't need to get rid of the contract, they are the wealthiest organization and the option to use this for LTIR is a nice loophole.

20 Sep 2017 23:46:04
This does nothing for Leafs. He doesn't count against cap and they can easily afford him.

18 Sep 2017 03:31:20
Tor: Doughty, Carter

La: Marner, Gardiner, Bozak, Fehr, Lupul, 1st lottery protected, 2nd in 2019 becomes a 1st if toronto wins cup by then

With Nylander and Matthews already having chemistry, marner is also a winger, and this opens room for kapenen to play in the top 9

LA frees up long term cap and gets younger

18 Sep 2017 04:55:58
Take those 2 cap dumps out and its still not even close.

18 Sep 2017 07:03:33
No from LA

18 Sep 2017 21:35:00
Toronto's finest.

19 Sep 2017 14:10:44
How do they get younger? Gardner is the same age as doughty, obviously marner is young, but then the other 3 players, bozak, fehr and lupul are all over 30 and within a year (older or younger) of carter. Picks would make them young but they aren't great picks where you will get a doughty replacement. They're trading the best player in doughty, the second or 3rd best in carter (depending on your marner bias) and for a 1st and 2nd from what should be a playoff team (or will definitely be a playoff team adding doughty and carter for cap dumps and 3rd liners) while eating salary?

20 Sep 2017 23:48:16
Hell no form T. O.

18 Sep 2017 00:30:18
- Ryan Nugent-Hopkins
- 2nd
- Mathew Dumba
- Tyler Bozak

TOR - 2nd
MIN - Ryan Nugent-Hopkins
EDM - Mathew Dumba, Tyler Bozak

18 Sep 2017 22:41:59
Nuge > Dumba, Minnesota needs to give up more IMO.

16 Sep 2017 14:42:32
James van Riemsdyk to the Columbus Blue Jackets in exchange for Jack Johnson and a 2019 2nd Round Draft Pick.

- Two UFA's traded for each other, for positional needs.
- Columbus could use another left winger, especially if Sonny Milano doesn't pan out on the left side. Foligno, van Riemsdyk and Panarin on the left would be ridiculous.
- Columbus also has internal depth to take over for the loss of Johnson, as Harrington, Nutivarra and Gabriel Carlsson are all young enough to play the bottom pair and have sheltered minutes. The top four in CBJ would stay the same, with Seth Jones, Zach Werenski, David Savard and Ryan Murray.
- Toronto definetly could use another defenseman to round out their top four, and Johnson could be a stabilizing partner for the still growing Morgan Rielly. It would also be better if Ron Hainsey played in a third pairing role than in a first pairing role, that way he could play big minutes on the PK.
- Toronto also can easily replace JVR, as currently, with him in the lineup, they have 5 NHL ready left wingers (JVR, Marleau, Hyman, Komarov, Martin) . One would shift to the right side if this move wasn't done. With this move, there is an opening on the right wing for Kasperi Kapanen, who played well in a fourth line stint last year.

Toronto Lineup:
Zach Hyman - Auston Matthews - William Nylander
Patrick Marleau - Tyler Bozak - Mitch Marner
Leo Komarov - Nazem Kadri - Connor Brown
Matt Martin - Dominic Moore - Kasperi Kapanen
*Josh Leivo

Jack Johnson - Morgan Rielly
Jake Gardiner - Nikita Zaitsev
Connor Carrick - Ron Hainsey
*Travis Dermott, Roman Polak

Columbus Lineup:
Artemi Panarin - Alex Wennberg - Josh Anderson (if he signs)
Nick Foligno - Brandon Dubinsky - Cam Atkinson
James van Riemsdyk - Boone Jenner - Oliver Bjorkstrand
Sonny Milano - Lukas Sedlak - Matt Calvert
*Jordan Schroeder

Seth Jones - Zach Werenski
Gabriel Carlsson - David Savard
Markus Nuttivarra - Ryan Murray
*Scott Harrington

- Only reason I added the second is because I believe Jack Johnson is worth a first, and JVR is worth a first and second. So yeah.

16 Sep 2017 18:18:27
I like it, I don't think Johnson is the answer to the Leafs and JVR isn't a centremen but it does make both teams better without them really giving up much. So solid and a realistic trade.

16 Sep 2017 22:27:00
You put too much time into this. Lol.

17 Sep 2017 04:25:49

I have nothing better to do on a Saturday mornin. Lol.

12 Sep 2017 17:17:48
Florida Trades
3rd Round Pick 2018

Toronto Trades
Rychel (AHL)

Thoughts ?

12 Sep 2017 18:02:43
Hell no from Florida p.

12 Sep 2017 18:40:20
Terrible for Florida.

12 Sep 2017 18:26:53
You're Pinball aren't ya? New account name?

12 Sep 2017 19:04:30
thats trades worse for florida then the hurrincans they just had.

14 Sep 2017 11:00:43
Florida trades one of its best 3 or 4 players and adds a pick and doesn't get back one of the leafs best 8 or 9 players? Really bad for them. Also leafs have way too many nhl wingers, and not enough good D. They downgrade in D while gaining a winger. Value wise: horrible for panthers. Needs wise: bad for both.

10 Sep 2017 16:38:32
Trade 1: MTL - COL :Galchenyuk + 2d + Mete for Mackinnon + any forward prospect

Trade 2: MTL - TOR : Kasperi Kapanen for Ryan Poehling + 2d

Pacioretty Mackinnon Drouin
Kapanen Danault Gallagher
Byron Hudon Lehkonen
Martinsen Plekanec McCarron

Alzner Weber
Jerabek/Morrow Petry
Benn Schlemko

Price / Lindgren

10 Sep 2017 17:34:01
so Montreal trades there top center prospect and 2 defense? Kapanen is probably a top 6 winger with a decent ceiling. I feel like the leafs would do this but I don't think the habs should. Their center corps is horrible.

10 Sep 2017 17:34:44
Kapanen is way more of a sure thing than Poehling. No thanks.

&also, no way for Mack. Serg+ was the only thing Colorado would have even listened to, and he's gone. So no way, nothin on Mtl (except Price) gets Mackinnon.

10 Sep 2017 17:48:01
Yeah how about pyatt+Hammond+3rd for price funny guy.

10 Sep 2017 17:59:12
Not a chance we get MacKinnon.

10 Sep 2017 18:31:25
This is laughable.

11 Sep 2017 00:49:56
Wow you're on glue today man. Hollllyyyyy.

12 Sep 2017 00:36:00
Did i read that correctly? You actually think that would pry MacKinnon from Colorado?

10 Sep 2017 03:04:25
- James Van Riemsdyk
- Kasperi Kapanen
- Brett Pesce
- Elias Lindholm


- James Van Riemsdyk
- Ryan Murray

10 Sep 2017 08:23:32
The jackets need a center not a wing.

10 Sep 2017 08:37:47
Very easy no from CAR.

10 Sep 2017 15:53:18
NO from both teams they need centres not more wings :p.

10 Sep 2017 17:35:53
Pesce>JVR, Lindholm>Kapanen. No way from Carolina.

Id rather have a young dman than a pending ufa in JVR honestly. SO no from jackets.

10 Sep 2017 18:31:48
Canes get hosed big time.

11 Sep 2017 01:51:50
I can't see Pesce going anywhere.

06 Sep 2017 05:11:18
Colorado is trying to collect young assets. Trading 2 picks for 3 players (one of which they placed on waivers last year) doesn't really make sense.

JVR should only be traded for a good upgrade on D in my opinion. If they can't get a Good young D for him I think they will keep him for the playoff run and depending on his demands, possibly re-sign him.

Earlier I would have said habs add, but the longer this duchene thing plays out, that might be the best they get. I'd say the 3rd going back to the habs might not happen though.

06 Sep 2017 11:34:30
The RW behind Galchenyuk shows your resignation about him😂.

28 Aug 2017 20:47:39
3 Team Trade

Canucks get Benson.T, Bear.E, Leivo.J
Oilers get JVR, Cassels.C
Leafs get Tanev.C, Rattie.T

Canucks get young prospects to help the rebuild next year
Oilers get more scoring for the year before the new deals kick in
Leafs get shutdown dman to play key minutes



Yes I know the Leafs brought in Hainsey to play with Reilly but realistically can he still play top pairing minutes all season, he was sheltered a bit with the Pens

28 Aug 2017 23:34:45
Wow really bad for Vancouver here, also Oilers just signed Rattie, doubt he gets traded this quick.

29 Aug 2017 02:41:19
The Oilers aren't trading Bear and Benson for one year of JVR. Not a chance.
Especially giving those two to divisional rival Vancouver.
Just leave Edm out of this deal and Toronto should try and get Tanev. I've always thought he would be a good fit in Toronto.

29 Aug 2017 05:18:26
Yeah solid no from oil wow.

29 Aug 2017 17:43:27
Really bad for Van. Benson is not even in WHL camp as he is hurt yet again.

29 Aug 2017 18:11:37
I know Benny personally and I see him at the bars in Edmonton and my god the guy is chapped about his injuries it's like never ending.

29 Aug 2017 21:42:42
He's really has some bad luck. First noticed him as a bantam. Absolutely tore it up when he was younger.

30 Aug 2017 20:34:20
Well he set the record for most points in bantam in Alberta so I'd have to agree. Very promising if he can heal up.

17 Aug 2017 14:00:59
JVR, Carrick

Panthers are a playoff team in the making with just a couple of pieces missing. They get a scoring winger to replace jagr and a young dman

Leafs get another RH stay at home dam to help Hainsey


17 Aug 2017 15:11:41
Remove carrick.

17 Aug 2017 17:29:02
JVR alone is too much for pysk. Pysk st this point looks like a 5-6th defenceman 4 maybe at his best. Panthers should add a pick or a prospect, even still leafs could do better for jvr.

17 Aug 2017 23:39:33
They signed Hainsey to play top pair with Reilly.

18 Aug 2017 19:51:57
Don't rely on an aging Hainsey to keep up top line minutes all season.

16 Aug 2017 18:45:14
Bored @ work, just a thought

Leafs - Blues trade

Leafs trade - JVR maybe ad a 3rd or a mid level prospect
Blues trade - Jordan Schmaltz plus a 2nd round pick

16 Aug 2017 19:40:51
Think Toronto would want a little more, maybe not?

17 Aug 2017 02:22:36
Wow excellent insight McJesus lol.

17 Aug 2017 04:19:31
Fair enough.

15 Aug 2017 14:50:43

D. Strome C
3rd 2018
3rd 2019

15 Aug 2017 16:09:20
I don't like it from the leafs at all. I know strike still us a ton of potential, but why do we need another center that worst case, doesn't live up to potential, best case creates a log jam with like age players needing big raises. Having matthews, nylander, marner is enough. Use the assets to solve top 4 D gap, not add to our deepest position which is high potential, high skill young forwards.

15 Aug 2017 17:18:46
Do the Leafs need Strome? The most pressing need is on the backend.

15 Aug 2017 20:25:15
Lol you leafers are funny, ya sure TO doesn't need Strome, but why on earth would Arizona do that? Terrible for them, can't see JVR resigning there either.

16 Aug 2017 17:11:16
@Hotguybabes. No one said it was good for coyotes. Just said it doesn't solve the leafs problems. Rather spend assets on what they need, not what they already have in spades. I only commented from leafs perspective because this site is usually about what each fan base wants or thinks. From the coyotes I wouldn't like it either.

14 Aug 2017 20:18:02
Toronto-JVR (25% retained),carrick,2018 1st, josh leivo.

Washington- John Carlson, 2018 4th.

14 Aug 2017 21:08:38
No from Capitals.

14 Aug 2017 22:30:03
NO FROM CAPITALS! heck no from toronto.

14 Aug 2017 22:59:01
Hell I from the Caps.

14 Aug 2017 23:18:58
No from the Leafs, Jeaz

a top line winger albeit with 1 year left, a #4 dman 23yr old with potential a 1st and leivo who could still become a good player. I think that's too much for Carlson.

16 Aug 2017 18:52:01
Well if Carrick is a 4, Carlson must be a franchise defencemen .

12 Aug 2017 12:48:05

12 Aug 2017 15:51:10
who the @#$% are the players coming back to toronto in the JVR deal.

12 Aug 2017 17:51:15
Borgstrom was a 1st round pick from the panthers in 2016. Currently in the NCAA. A big (lanky) talented center.

12 Aug 2017 21:53:43
No from Devils, no from Vegas and no from Toronto, even tho I personally really like Heponeimi and Borgstrom has come along nicely since being drafted.

13 Aug 2017 06:53:54
I'd literally take future considerations to get rid of Ben smith and his useless contract.

13 Aug 2017 17:23:54
I'm sure google could tell you all about them.

11 Aug 2017 22:52:53
Jets have reportedly shown interest in trading for JVR. Toronto would like Trouba in return it would take more than just JVR.
What kind of deal could maybe be done?
Trouba on Toronto would fit nice.
JVR-Laine-Ehlers-Wheeler. Would Any other team have better top 6 wingers than that?! Schiffle and Little center.

12 Aug 2017 02:08:48
Uhh Trouba wants to leave Winnipeg to go play in the states, why would he leave for another Canadian city? And also 1 year of JVR with no extension isn't on the same level as a young stud in Trouba.

12 Aug 2017 03:28:51
1 year of Jvr will not get u trouba kids a stud and getting better, Jets would probbly make a trade around myers.

12 Aug 2017 05:39:03
Hence why this post that I read this in said that JVR alone wouldn't get it done.
But both teams are intersted in those players.

12 Aug 2017 06:13:51
There's no possible deal around 1 year of JVR for Trouba as a base, Jets want a similar LHD for him, not a top 6 LW with 1 year left before UFA status.

12 Aug 2017 16:15:19
Trouba is also an rfa after this year who will want a ton of cash, can the jets afford it? They have some other young forwards who are going to want a ton of cash.

13 Aug 2017 03:36:55
Ok and.? JVR likely asks for ~7Mil if he gets to free agency. Trouba won't cost as much as JVR on his next deal (I'd guess a multi year deal around 5-6Mil)

13 Aug 2017 17:11:47
TOR: Gardner, JVR
WPG: Trouba.

13 Aug 2017 17:15:56
It would probably take JVR, Kapanen and one of their LD prospects for Trouba and maybe a low pick. However, the site you read this on yup hasn't been right about anything in years. I think they just get bored in the summer and make stuff up.

08 Aug 2017 15:54:12
Tor: Bjugstad, Demers (retain 500k), 4th if jvr re signs

Fla: JVR, Kapenen, Fehr, Marincin, tor worst 2nd

Why: FLA needs a top winger to round out there top 6, fla already tried to trade demers and they save some cap in the deal, also kapenen gets to play in the nhl regularly since tor has nylander, marner, brown, hyman, marleau, komarov on the wing

Pitts: Bozak, Carrick, 3rd if maatta plays 50 games

Tor: Maatta, 5th if bozak re signs or pens make it to conference finals

Pitts is looking for a third line center and shoots right which is a plus, ufa after this year so no big financial commitment, tor now has great options on d and Bjugstad re place bozak and marleau replaces JVR

Tor will probably have a cap problem when Matthews is a RFA but it will be a lot easier to trade a dmen then a forward, gardiner and hanisey ufa in two years as well cap wise they can probably only keep 4 out of these 5 dmen in two years ( Reilly, demers, gardiner, Zaitsev, Maatta)

09 Aug 2017 11:30:22
First trade is way too much from the leafs. Bjug had a down year, he can be had for cheaper, and Demers ain't anything too speciall. Giving up JVR and Kappy for that is a lot. No thanks.

10 Aug 2017 00:52:02
How do people disagree lmao😂😂

a month ago, people were saying Bjug is garbage and worth merely anything.

05 Aug 2017 09:58:31
1st trade:

Leafs- Tyler Bozak + Kasperi Kapanen
Flames- Sam Bennett + Rasmus Andersson

2nd trade:

Leafs- Jeremy Bracco + Frederik Gauthier
Ducks - Brandon Montour

Sign Jarome Iginla

JVR - Matthews - Nylander
Hyman - Bennett - Marner
Marleau - Kadri - Iginla
Komarov - Moore - Brown

Gardiner - Rielly
Montour - Zaitsev
Andersson - Carrick / Hainsey & Marincin

05 Aug 2017 16:29:56
Both awful for team not called Toronto. Montour has shown he will be a top 4 Dman and could be a high end offensive threat for years to come with his skating. Gauthier has shown in 3 years that he's close to being trusted as the 4th line center for the leafs, but they still felt the need in another 1 year helper in Dominic Moore. Bracco could be a really good player, or another undersized guy that represents your AHL team very well for 10 years. Not the return you need for moving montour.

06 Aug 2017 21:35:30
Wow! The Flames trade is enticing. But, too much cap hit. So the Flames remove Bennett and Rasmus and replace them with Brouwer and Poirier.

07 Aug 2017 04:46:47
Well then Toronto just laughs in your face Borje.

07 Aug 2017 18:08:55
The Montour trade might be the worst trade I've seen in a while. Matthews for Ritchie and Steel? Lol.

08 Aug 2017 15:41:52
Which is what I was doing Yup. I don't think his trade proposal was serious.
