Philly: 7th overall, Kevin hayes. Chicago:19th overall,chi 2nd, tb 2nd rd all this year, Dallas 2nd 2025. Thinking is Philly trying to trade hayes for a while and rebuild. Chicago could get michkov because i doubt any teams above will wait a few years for him, but chicago will be right in their upswing and end of hayes contract. Subject to hayes 12 teams but already screwed Chicago once so probably not a fit but an idea.

Edmonton trades McDavid to Toronto for Matthews and the late 1st this year.

McDavid gets to play for his home team that is full of playoff chokers, while Matthews gets to play for a team that is also full of playoff chokers

Haha, I know its a joke post because that would mean Mathews is in the same realm as McDavid.

That wouldn't/ shouldn't even get

McD is a much better player then Matthews so this trade proposal would definitely be a no from the Oilers.

Agree0 Disagree1

Anaheim Trades
2nd Overall Pick 2023
60th Overall Pick 2023

Toronto Trades
28th Overall Pick 2023

Anaheim with a ton of Cap Space can make this happen money wise including signing an extension (a sign and trade would have to be in place) to make it work for The Ducks, Matthews is young enough that he would fit with the rebuild.

Leafs are still in a Cap Space issue, trading Matthews helps huge and restocks the team going forward with Cap Space added, McTavish and probably Fantilli will be the next wave of young forwards coming in, I have heard none of the core 4 will be traded but if a proposal like this is in play you would have to consider it for both teams.

Thoughts ?

Far too much for Matthews. If he wants to sign in Anaheim and Toronto wants that much, just wait the year and keep the assets, or wait until Toronto's ask is at least reasonable.

No point in gutting the prospect depth you've been building up to get him a year early when he won't make you a contender anyways.

Agree1 Disagree6

Gutting the prospect pool?
Matthews isn't a 30+ Centre in decline, if anything he is about to hit his prime.
This would be an opportunity for Anaheim to add one of the best Centres in The NHL, don't expect Matthews to be on the market after next season, if it isn't Toronto it will be a team that trades for him before July 1.
Adding him now gives Anaheim 2 extra years as only the team owning his rights can sign him for 8 years, you include next season that's 9 years compared to 7 years as a UFA.
I believe if this proposal is out there both teams would be interested imo.

Agree4 Disagree1

Sorry Pinball it isn't good for Anaheim. You want two top 3 picks for one year of Matthews. Anaheim tells you to pound sand. He's good, but not that good especially when you factor in his current contract and add his next in there as well.

It's unlikely Matthews signs an 8 year deal imo. He'll sign another short to medium one and try to cash in again.

As I said he doesn't help Anaheim much next year, so if he wants to sign there that bad, they can wait and keep the 2 top 3 assets.

Agree0 Disagree2

27 May 2023 14:47:25
Seems better than usual but Anaheim would easily refuse. McTavish is really good and fantelli may be better than matthews.

Agree0 Disagree1

If a leafs did something extremely unethical like sign him to a 8 year contract and now he’s off the market teams can no longer sign him he’s a leaf and he wants to be a leaf then they turned around and traded him before his NMC kicks in then this would be fair but that’s not going to happen. He’s worth slightly more then what Erik Karlsson got at the moment. In theory yes you can wait until free agency but then you lose certainty.

I seen a few Marner for Panarin rumors floating around, if Panarin or Zibanejad are available how about one of these instead.

NYR : Panarin

OTT : DeBrincat, Thompson, and Formenton


NYR : Zibanejad

OTT : DeBrincat, and a 2nd

Ottawa can replace DeBrincat with a star around the same level or use him to bring Zibanejad home where he belongs, assuming DeBrincat don't want to sign with Ottawa.

Pass on the Panarin trade. I don't mind the second though. Always liked Zibanejad.

Agree0 Disagree1

27 May 2023 17:00:21
I don’t think Paniran holds much value with his contract.

Agree0 Disagree1

NYI - 2023 2nd

EDM - Yamamoto, 2023 5th

The Islanders should look to get younger. Yamo’s production is a bit of a mystery but he scored 20 last year and I think it’s fair to say he’s about a 40 point guy with 50 point potential.

I doubt Matthews and Anaheim could make a deal.

23 May 2023 17:04:55
Why couldn't Matthews and Anaheim make a deal (I am assuming you mean a contract extension) .
Matthews side kick buddy Justin Bieber has a huge home down the street in Beverly Hills.
I actually can see Matthews wanting out of The Toronto spotlight imo.

24 May 2023 11:30:37
Mathews loves the spotlight lol. Probably would head to LA if he leaves Toronto.

it’s actually a pretty fair trade tbh.

Leafs need to move Mathews before they lose him for nothing. Hopefully going to zona he will do a sign in trade.

Leafs trade


Arizona trade

2023 first round (6th overall)

Why would ARI trade for a contract as expensive as Matthews when they’re playing 2 more seasons in a 4500 seat barn?

They won’t be staying in ARI anyway, so there goes the “return home” angle.

Matthews is way more likely to hit the open market as a UFA regardless, and it’s not like he’s such a clutch playoff performer that contenders will be trading the farm for him.

Agree4 Disagree4

If the Arizona franchise ever has a chance they have to build a team through the draft and develop philosophy.
They shouldn't try and take a short cut by signing one $14 mil per over valued player like Matthews.
It will throw their cap structure out of whack like the Leafs did by signing Tavares.
This led to overpaying the other 3 players with no $ for the rest of the team.
Arizona has to stay the course.

Mathew Tkachuk before this year was absolutely awful ( far worse then Mathews) in the playoffs. Look at what he went for at the time.
