This trade under the wild assumption that WAS WANTS to move Ovie

WAS: Landeskog, Meloche

COL: Ovie


1.) 31 May 2017 23:18:48
Well no that's not close to enough.

2.) 01 Jun 2017 18:50:49
For shits and giggles - but no one is giving Washington a kings ransom for Ovie.



30 Nov 2016 19:05:42
just having some fun. Would BUF do it?

BUF: Holland, Corrado, 3rd

TOR: Franson.


1.) 30 Nov 2016 19:13:01
Holland is trash so no.

2.) 30 Nov 2016 19:38:58
I don't wan franson back

and tbh i'd rather just wave both holland and corrado than trade away that 3rd.

3.) 30 Nov 2016 20:24:40
I think Buffalo would do this but I don't think Toronto would want Franson back.

4.) 30 Nov 2016 20:53:11
Yeah I don't think they want him back either (even though he's got 7 pts this season and is playing over 20 min/ game - which is better than what Marincin/ Polak/ Hunwick/ Carrick are doing) .

Really I was just thinking of inexpensive stop gaps.

5.) 30 Nov 2016 20:54:58

I definitely don't think Holland is more than a 4th liner (maybe 3rd liner), but he's definitely not devoid of talent.

6.) 30 Nov 2016 21:04:51
Trash for trash ? Okay

7.) 30 Nov 2016 21:46:02
^ essentially Oil, but really Franson is more valuable than Holland and Corrado.

8.) 30 Nov 2016 23:05:12
True but I have a feeling he will be on Robidas island with Joffrey Lupul soon.

9.) 01 Dec 2016 21:22:18
I've said it on here before. Ppl saying holland is a 3rd liner is a tough sell. The guy is cheap and has been waived already this season, will be again soon. Clearly no team feels he's an upgrade on their 13 forwards or they'd grab him for nothing. That's not a third liner. I like him, not terrible, just in a tough spot where he was outplayed by 7-8 players looking to make the jump from AHL. Also taking the team to arbitration and then not performing after asking for a 300% raise kind of puts you under a microscope.



29 Nov 2016 17:29:05
Anyone buying the rumours that TOR is in on Hamilton? Knowing Uncle Lou, It's obviously a lot chatter with no real Backing, but my question is: what's the trade look like? The Hockey Writers suggested the return could involve the Leafs 2nd, an NHL player (Holland/ Leivo) and one of the top AHL players (Leipsic, Kapanen etc. ) . I think that's soft, but given the salary and term and Hamiltons struggles (I know he's been better in the last few games), I don't think if he warrants a top end return.

Logic dictates it's likely a one-for-one trade involving Nylander but i'm interested to hear people's thoughts.


1.) 29 Nov 2016 17:44:19
As a Almaty fan I would be outraged at that return. I would be looking for someone with similar age and potential or a high end prospect. Or a top like RW.

2.) 29 Nov 2016 17:53:17
Is Willie Ny playing tonight?

3.) 29 Nov 2016 18:46:19
i believe so X. Not sure where he's playing (4th line or with Kadri/ Matthews) .

@Xcing - yeah I don't disagree with that logic. And I think that's likely what happens. There's also the possibility of a bigger trade with some of those other players involved.

4.) 29 Nov 2016 23:40:48
Calgary has been at a few Marlies games but I think Dermot and kapenen plus would be involved.

5.) 30 Nov 2016 10:12:48
I don't think Dougie is the right option for Toronto. They should sign shattenkirk in free agency instead of giving up core pieces for someone you don't really need yet if you're not a contender



27 Sep 2016 19:48:26
Seems like the popular topic. For the record I think a 1 for 1 will be tough. There aren't many teams that are flush enough with LHD that they would likely consider trading got Trouba. In all likelihood he goes for a younger top 4 Dman/ prospect with top 4 upside + a good young prospect

Anywayhere are my contributions:

WIN: Savard, Milano

CBJ: Trouba

WIN: de Haan, Dal Colle

NYI: Trouba

* I started with Hamonic but IMO they want to bring in a RHD to play with Hamonic.

WIN: Fleury, Aho

CAR: Trouba

WIN: Gardiner, Dermott, Brown

TOR: Trouba

*for the record, i don't believe TOR will be in on Trouba but my guess is this is the sort of deal Lou looks at. And if someone tells me Rielly or Matthews has to be involved pull your head out of your a$$.


1.) 27 Sep 2016 21:18:24
Carolina is deep enough on D plus Aho probably won't be traded.

2.) 27 Sep 2016 21:49:18
The 1st 2 aren't bad.

3.) 27 Sep 2016 22:55:08
I still think Jets would rather have a LHD.

4.) 27 Sep 2016 22:55:30
Instead of the Savard.

5.) 27 Sep 2016 23:47:35
I'd rather have Davidson and a 1st over De Haan and Dal Colle, especially considering they have Laine, Ehlers, Connor and I think Petan on left wing.

6.) 28 Sep 2016 00:59:23
Isn't Savard a LHD? I thought he was TBH. So sub in Ryan Murray and drop Milano?

7.) 27 Sep 2016 23:21:51
i saw Trouba and Petan for Del Zotto and Sanheim. I thought it was decent but even after unloading MDZ's 3.8 Mil, idk if they'll have enough to sign Trouba.



30 Jun 2016 19:35:25
Scratch that last post - the two tweets I read were coming from fan accounts.

One guy is saying one of Duchen, Barrie and Ladeskog are the likely players moving and it will be to be east coast.

Any thoughts of TOR acquiring Trevor Van Riemsdyk? I don't know if CAR will trade him or not? They just gave up a 2nd for him...but they have a ton of depth and TVR is a 3rd pairing guy.

Also, if the Leafs could acquire Grabner, would you trade Komarov?


1.) 15 Feb 2018 20:42:06
For clarity - my comment about Komarov was more, is he the guy to move or is JVR? Do you bench him?

2.) 15 Feb 2018 22:37:27
Idk. I like JVR a lot. But from recent game icetime, it seems like if either Komarov or JVR was going to stay, itd be more likely that its Leo.

And in the case of TVR, i'd love him. Tbh, i can't see him getting a 2nd again, but maybe a third and sosh would do it?



15 Aug 2017 17:16:24
I know it's still early but is the fantasy hockey league happening again?


1.) 16 Aug 2017 16:26:13
I'm down to do it if anyone else is.

2.) 23 Aug 2017 15:29:24
Sorry, GR81, we've had that on the site like a couple weeks ago I'd guess and are already all set and done pretty much. If anyone bails during the year, we'll let you know!



30 Nov 2016 18:31:07
TSN posed the question and I thought it was a good one: who has the better core 4, TML or EDM?

IMO it's Edmonton because they are built very well up the middle (McDavid, RNH and Draisaitl) . With that said, Toronto may ultimately be the more balanced team. Reilly is the best of the defenders and Matthews/ Marner may be the new Toews/ Kane, who have how many cups?

anywho I'm interested hear people's thoughts.

Full disclosure I'm a Leafs fan.


1.) 30 Nov 2016 19:31:44
Im a leaf fan, but man its close. i'd say Jesse P, McDavid, Drais and Klefbom are oil core while matthews marner rielly and nylander. I agree w you gr81, the oil may b over the top w mcdavid, but the leafs look like a team built like chicago

It almost looks like Chicago 2.0 vs Pittsburgh 2.0.

2.) 30 Nov 2016 20:49:54
Oil have Larsson, Klefbom and Nurse as young high potential D, which is more than what the leafs have.
But as far as forwards McDavid over Matthews. I don't know enough about Marner but Draisaitl might have the edge? Don't know what we have in Puljujarvi but so far it isn't much so I'd easily take Nylander. RNH is the most established of all the young guys as well.

3.) 30 Nov 2016 22:21:48
Its close. but I think McDavid puts them over the top.

4.) 01 Dec 2016 00:48:22
I'd build my team around mcdavid

5.) 01 Dec 2016 06:10:23
Agree with sosa.
It's really close until you bring up McDavid.
Matthews is going to be a great player for many years in TOR, don't get me wrong, but a McD he is not. McDavid is just an another-level player.



28 Aug 2016 14:45:54
Drais, what's happening with hockey?


1.) 28 Aug 2016 18:23:28
was just thinking of asking this myself. any update?

2.) 28 Aug 2016 22:15:32
Yep. I would love to join again.

3.) 28 Aug 2016 23:58:33
Check your emails.

4.) 29 Aug 2016 03:02:47
Yeah I did right after.

5.) 29 Aug 2016 09:42:23
Ya I tried the email msg didn't work but I'm interested.



08 Jul 2016 17:24:31
Leafs trade Bernier to Anaheim got a conditional pick.

Glad that cap space has been cleared.


1.) 08 Jul 2016 18:01:29
What was the pick.

2.) 08 Jul 2016 18:21:25
7th prob.

3.) 08 Jul 2016 22:23:03
He has ONE year left. What the H does it matter about the caps space for the Leafs this year? You guys going to be buyers at the deadline or something? Going to sign a few top free agents. I don't get that comment at all with the state of the Leafs currently.

4.) 09 Jul 2016 01:32:57
yup, why do you feel the need to over-exaggerate everything that is in any way related to toronto? you do know there are 1) no top free agents left, and 2) that the leafs are technically over the cap right now, right?

yes, with robidas and horton on LTIR they are under, but the bit of extra room is always nice and may help facilitate a trade similar to the winnik one this past season where they took back laich who, i'm sure you know, makes over twice as much as winnik.

5.) 09 Jul 2016 02:12:38
That's not over exaggerating at all friend.
And don't worry, it's not only Leafs stuff. You just choose to recognize those more. Not my fault buddy.

6.) 09 Jul 2016 03:09:23
I've called out a terribly Ottawa/ Avalanche trade today and a Dallas/ Avalanche trade yesterday.
First two that come to mind of many. I'm glad all you choose to notice is my comments on Leafs posts tho, Pretty funny.

7.) 09 Jul 2016 03:27:58
You may be right that it's not only leaf things; I'll be the first to admit I don't read nearly everything that's posted here. But that's neither here nor there.

And I think it is quite an exaggeration. The trade is small, the return is small (likely will never be anything in terms of contribution at the nhl level) the money saved may make a small difference (again likely not), and you seemingly angrily reply. Maybe I interpreted the tone wrong, but it seems that way.

8.) 09 Jul 2016 04:45:10
Angerly? Lol. I said it while laughing man.
It's ok tho, It's hard to really understand tone through text in general. But yea, You only choose to notice my Leaf comments when there is a lot of other comments about other posts, Not just Leafs stuff.

You had proposed this trade and Trouba was a proven legit top pairing dman. It's not far fetched, but he's not. So yeah.

Do the Leafs need Strome? The most pressing need is on the backend.

I think Vatanen is going to expensive, but if you can get him without trading a boat load, then do it.

Why would the rangers send a 1st?

Why not make a run at him in FA next year instead? Montreal made the playoffs with their current roster - they can stand to go another season without making a big move like this.

He would expensive (relative) . Projected Elite talent (that doesn't mean he's elite, just he has that sort of talent) .

But there are teams out there that need forward help, and Tampa needs defensive help. So maybe he gets traded for an up and coming dman a la Hall for Larsson.

Maybe they go to Vegas? I'm assuming it would be a $$ move, bc I can't see a team forking out big $$ for either.
