Tkachuk provides toughness (Jets need) and also points. So I don't think they would miss Laine to much. He may not get the points Laine is capable of getting but brings more of what the Jets really lack. Toughness and grit.
There other weakness is defence. But possibly fix that through Free Agency.

No thanks. Tkachuk would be nice, but I'd rather keep Laine. Ottawa would be too cheap to hold onto Laine anyways.

If The Leafs win the lottery tonight they will have to move out some forwards for Cap plus keep them a good offensive team at the same time, if they can add Lafreniere at LW I could see a trade proposal like this.

New Jersey Trades

Toronto Trades
Duszak (AHL)

There would have to be another move my guess Kerfoot and Dermott packaged for another RHanded Shooting Defenceman with a lower Salary to keep under The Cap.

Thoughts ?

Pinball come on bro. You know this isn’t even close.

How isn't this close themostleaf33?
Kapanen, Duszak - Severson
Johnsson, FGauthier - Zacha
That breakdown shows it's more than fair.

Agree4 Disagree3

10 Aug 2020 17:04:31
Dermott=Zacha, Johnsson won’t get you Zacha and Gauthier has no value.

Kapanen+ will get you Severson, but the addition has to be much better then Duszak. He is decent but he is also 23 and probably isn’t more then a bottom pairing guy in the future.

You have to add a prospect with a little more value like SDA and a pick.

Thank god the leafs didn’t win the lottery.
Tho now we will have to put up with a year of leafs fans claiming the draft lottery is rigged. AGAIN.

Why would we think it’s rigged. Like we literally watched it live.

Or 5 years of someone crying from mommy’s tit that the leafs tanked for McDavid. Some of the newer people on this site may not remember. I hope the kid requests a trade like Kassian’s uncle told me he would. #McD deserves better.

I won’t get on your case too much, Leafs17, because you at least feel shame about your team’s fanbase some of the time. Rightfully so, they’re a generally ridiculous barrel of monkeys. But cmon, the “rigged” conspiracy is still a hot topic for the soft-skulled in the GTA.

Also, I heard from RNH’s brother’s cousin’s mom’s best friend’s father-in-law that McD isn’t going to request a trade, especially not to the leafs, because he isn’t a crybaby. Won’t surprise me in the least if Matthews books it for Arizona (or a nearby American team) after his contract is up tho. Why else sign for 5yrs instead of the max? Do his due diligence and then wave goodbye to the most delusional fanbase in sports. Makes sense.

Agree2 Disagree0

11 Aug 2020 10:47:19
But, yeah, you goaded and I’ll play along:
leafs fired a coach who had a 21-16-3 record and a playoff spot at the time of his firing when there was a generational talent from the GTA to be had in the draft, and put in place an inexperienced coach who didn’t stick around the following year and hasn’t been a head coach since in the NHL after going 9-28-5 (NINE-TWENTY EIGHT-FIVE! ) and plummeting the leafs to the bottom of the league.
Tell me again how this isn’t the most blatant intentional tanking in NHL history? 😂
It’s a huge pathetic smudge on leafs and hockey history and you know it.

EDM - Athanasiou
SJS - Labanc

Labanc fell down the depth chart and could use a change up. AA didn’t get anything going in his short time in Edmonton. They were each on pace for 38 points on a down season for them. Just a change of scenery type trade.

Believable5 Unbelievable8

11 Aug 2020 10:33:02
I’d welcome it but Lebanc took a big paycut to stay with SJ after his breakout year and he won’t be getting $1mil next season, he will get a contract along the same lines as Athanasiou’s arbitration numbers ($3mil) give or take a lil bit. I don’t think the Oilers will be able to afford either unless they get enough cash moved out to first cover a goalie and a top-4 dman. Not sure they will have enough left over after that unless they can swing Neal or Russell + a pick for cheap assets.

Agree0 Disagree0

Well that sucks I pressed send early by accident on last one LMFAO so I'll redo it here. Summarizing as due to cap and cap issues these deals are possible if Edmonton or Nashville win lotto.

NSH : 1st overall, Turris


OTT : 3rd overall, Isles 2020 1st, Chlapic, Duclair, Davidson


OTT : 5th overall, Batherson, Isles 1st, Chlapic, 2021 2nd rounder lowest, 2020 3rd rounder lowest

As for if Edmonton wins lottery use same trades as Nashville but replace Turris with James Neal.

Yes I made a couple changes to previous post, would have made them in post anyway if I didn't click send early lol.

Anyway not teams see cap relief with any of these deals and still manage a top 5 pick either way plus extra assets while Ottawa lands the 1st overall without having to get stupid and move both top 5 picks for it which is a dumb idea anyway as no team should ever trade 2 top 5 picks for anyone let alone the 1st overall in the same class. Especially in a deep class where the 2nd and 3rd overall picks have very comparable ceilings to the 1st overall and are nearly as good now as well. That's just dumb. These deals are far more reasonable.

If I'm nashville, I want lafrenier instead of all that. Bigger chance for immediate scoring help off the wing. He's already cap relief, and would be exactly what they need.

Agree4 Disagree1

09 Aug 2020 13:03:23
Why would. either team trade Laf for lower picks and garbage. The 3rd and 5th together have enough value it might convince a team. The Islanders pick and a bunch of crap does not.

Agree3 Disagree2

10 Aug 2020 22:27:26
St. louisfan get real dude 3rd + 5th >>> 1st in any reality. One of the 2 plus isles first = 1st especially this year. Might take a sweetener or 2 depending on which one is used but no way in hell 1st is is worth 2 top 5 picks. Even if 1 was McDavid which it's not.

Agree0 Disagree1

08 Aug 2020 14:42:43
If Nashville or Edmonton win the lottery I could see something like one of these deals happening due to the Salary Cap not changing for a few years and Nashville being a spend to the ceiling team as is, Edmonton already spending 10+ million on 2 guys and Nuge due for a raise as well and both teams in need of cap relief of bad contracts, and Ottawa being in a position as one of very few teams that CAN take on a bad contract.

NSH : 1st overall, Turris

OTT : 3rd overall, lowest 2021 2nd, Chlapic, Davidson, lowest 2020 3rd


NSH : 1st overall, Turris

OTT : 5th overall,

Tor: Matthews, marner next 4 first round picks unprotected

Edm: McDavid, draisaitl

Tor: nylander johnsson, dermott

Chi: debrincat

I fail to see how Debrincat has more value then Nylander.

08 Aug 2020 04:06:42
Vbb. Cause he's younger, cheaper and better.

Agree7 Disagree5

08 Aug 2020 09:06:19
Buddy couldn’t even crack 50 points playing with a top 3 player In the nhl ( offensively) Nylander would be putting up a PPG easily with Kane. I’ll even admit Kane Is better then Mathews.

Agree5 Disagree5

08 Aug 2020 15:18:14
Nylander is the better player, not sure why Leafs would do this.

I hit believable just for the jersey sales spike this would create, and to see edmonton fans throwing old ones on the ice again.

Matthew's proved he's worth keeping after this series he played hard on both ends. and that wasn't enough need the team to play hard maker and Tavares both loaded hard but once there off they had no game.

Agree2 Disagree1

Montreal- Domi
Canucks- Virtanen, Juolevi, 2021 5th

Domi was playing fourth line minutes, and Virtanen has lost favour in Vancouver, so a new team could be good for both players. Domi is the better player so Canucks add extra to get him.

Believable2 Unbelievable13

07 Aug 2020 13:26:47
Is have to say Vancouver adds actually. Virtanen is crap. He's a lazy, me first player that can't be counted on. Juolevi is an out and out bust that will probably never be a regular in the NHL.

Agree4 Disagree7

07 Aug 2020 18:54:00
Domi is playìng 4th line for 2 reasons

1. He has not earned more time with his slow play since the restart

2. And this is the most import he is being sheltered due to health concerns. It is to minimize potential accidental exposure. Probably agreed to by both the team and Domi seeing as Domi isn't concerned who his line Mates are and has even publically said so.

Agree2 Disagree2

07 Aug 2020 20:19:21
“Minimize potential exposure”?! 😂
That’s a joke, right? God I hope that’s a joke. because that’s a ridiculous notion.

Agree7 Disagree3

07 Aug 2020 22:50:51
He didn’t get to spend as much time at camp as everyone else to limit his exposure to others they are just easing him back to game shape he will move up the lineup next round.

Agree2 Disagree3

09 Aug 2020 18:00:08
Players have been leaving the bubble for various reasons. Thus they risk getting exposed to the virus themselves and bringing it back into the bubble. Like it or not believe it or not the risk is greater for Domi and Kakko than most other players.

The fact that he wasn't even sure if he would return the week of training camp suggests that he is taking every potential exposure seriously. Now that the players in the bubble have all had about 2 weeks worth of "clean" living with no reported cases he should feel more comfortable with his health and be moved up the lineup.
