Buffalo Trades
THall (50% of Contract Retained)
Ullmark (50% of Contract Retained)

Toronto Trades
1st Round Pick 2021
4th Round Pick 2021

Toronto gets a Top LW to play probably next to Matthews and Marner with Hyman dropping down to the third line to only make all the lines stronger, Ullmark replacing FAndersen with Contract and his health a huge question mark sets The Leafs in Goal for the playoffs.

Before anyone is ready to shoot down this Trade Proposal, yesterday The Islanders and Devils Trade showed all the rest of the Teams what the asking price is for 2 UFA Players, including retaining 50% of Contract Retained, this Trade Proposal is in par with yesterday's trade.

Thoughts ?

Not comparable unless you think Palmieri = Hall and 2 older UFAs = 2 younger RFAs?

It's very comparable, what did NJ get that's not in par to my proposal? In fact my proposal gives Buffalo better players.
So what you are saying is every Team in The NHL like The Islanders can give up not much besides a 1st Round Pick, but not The Leafs?
That's what you are saying with your response, sorry but NHL Trades between Teams doesn't make only The Leafs have to pay a bigger price tag.

NJ got younger lower paid players, both are RFAs, didn't take on a washed up, injured goalie. And the Ilsanders didn't get Hall.

@Mox, Jobst is a 27 year old undrafted AHL guy, pretty much the same as Barabanov, I'd say.

AJ Greer was a former second rounder in 2015, but has 6 points in 37 games, and hasn't played in the NHL since 18-19. This year even, he only has 2 points in 10 AHL games. He's likely a career AHLer, maybe a 13th-14th forward at his best. I'd say Freddie, despite his woes, is probably worth slightly more than that, especially to a team like Buffalo who'd likely be willing to resign him considering their lack of goalies. Sure Fred isn't great, but to a team like Buffalo they're probably a destination for him in FA anyway, so like they did with Simmonds last year, I think they'd take a stab at him if Toronto offered him.

As well, Palmieri and Hall, honestly, I'd say are pretty even, considering Hall's pretty terrible year. I have a preference for Palms, which makes me sad that the Leafs didn't pay the price NJ wanted, but really, Hall @4M and Palms @2.7 are pretty similar players - one is better this year, one has a better track record outside of this year. The difference really here is Ullmark and Zajac - I'd say Ullmark is a more valuable piece than Zajac on the whole, so probably bump the 4th up to a 2nd or so, and it's probably even.

NJ got 2 AHLers one being 24yrs old the other being 27yrs old, both will not play any part for The NHL Team so they are RFAs for The AHL, Barabanov and FAndersen are both UFAs after this season so weather or not FAndersen is injured or not for the rest of this Sabres miserable season, does it really matter for Buffalo?
Your argument makes no sense.

My Proposal of a 4th Round Pick is a guaranteed Pick, the 4th Round Pick in 2022 NJ will only get if The NYI win The Stanley Cup this year, so I disagree that the 4th in this situation needs to be a 2nd Round Pick, plus Zajak will play a bigger part for The NYI in the playoffs than Ullmark will as a backup Goaltender for The Leafs.

The 4th is conditional with an upgrade to a 3rd if NY makes the final. It’s a fourth otherwise.
