Mantha for Vrana, Panik, 1st, 2nd. Wowza.

TopShelfSlappers

1.) 12 Apr 2021 20:35:01
Such a huge overpayment


2.) 12 Apr 2021 21:02:45
Massive overpayment, Vrana's good man. I get the second to dump Panik, but Vrana and a 1st? Man, Mantha has to turn it around big time for Washington.


3.) 12 Apr 2021 21:29:57
Wasn't even sure i read it right at first. Deffenitley puzzled by this.


4.) 12 Apr 2021 23:21:04
As a Wings fan, I liked Mantha and would have ideally liked to keep him but this offer was too good to pass up.

Way better offer than the: Leafs 1st, Kerfoot, 2nd, Andersen for Bernier + Mantha deals I saw on here.


5.) 12 Apr 2021 23:23:05
Also I don’t mind taking salary players back in his place as we also didn’t have to retain salary.

So big win by not retaining and getting players to utilize in his place.


6.) 12 Apr 2021 23:29:09
Good trade.

It's not an overpayment for Mantha. Yes point production is similar but Washington is a much better team than Detroit and that's been true since before Mantha entered the league in the 2016-17 season.

Mantha is also a lot bigger and meaner which is important in the playoffs.


7.) 13 Apr 2021 00:19:36
Yeah Vrana is a year younger and has more points. I’m surprised Washington did this tbh.

Hall/ Lazar for Bjork/ 2nd. Mannnnnnn.

TopShelfSlappers

1.) 12 Apr 2021 11:59:46
Such a steal. People forget how good Hall is because the teams he plays on are dog sh**


2.) 12 Apr 2021 13:38:59
PLUS Buffalo retains 50% of Hall's salary.


3.) 12 Apr 2021 14:16:34
It’s not a steal it’s a market it’s very saturated. Not going to see the a lot of deals on the deadline day because the buyers are done for most part.


4.) 12 Apr 2021 23:39:40
@Nylander Wrong again, there were lots of deals on deadline day.


5.) 13 Apr 2021 00:51:32
@Nylander so much for not a lot of deals. Bennett returned two seconds basically, so Boston got Hall for a steal.


6.) 13 Apr 2021 11:06:02
There weren’t A lot of big deals aside from Mantha and if you classify Bennet as one.


 

 

12 Apr 2021 03:05:57
Bunch of late trades:
Rittich at 50% for a 3rd to the Leafs
Jeff Carter at 50% to Pittsburgh for mid rounders
Mike Reilly to Boston for a 3rd
Braydon Coburn to NYI for a 7th.

TopShelfSlappers

1.) 12 Apr 2021 06:25:59
Late in which way? They appeared to be done well before the deadline and before 10 p. m.


2.) 12 Apr 2021 12:27:09
He means close to the deadline.


3.) 12 Apr 2021 12:44:10
I feel like all these trades are more of the value ones- same w the Hall trade.
I’m surprised Mike Reilly fetched a 3rd because he’s awful for the Sens, but the rest are under payments imo.


 

 

11 Apr 2021 22:21:13
Nick Foligno for a 1st and a couple 4ths to Toronto, love the move. Was third behind Palmieri and Hall on my list but I think he's the type of guy we need+ its 75% salary retention, CBJ ate 50%, then SJS ate 50% of the already 50%, so Foligno comes in at 1.3M.

TopShelfSlappers

1.) 11 Apr 2021 22:43:25
Anybody who is happy about paying a first round pick for Nic Foligno at this rate of his career needs to learn about player values. Eric Staal has more value and he only got a third round pick at 50% retain. Yes Staal is 3 years olde veut he is also a center that is only 2 season removed from a 42 goals campaign. This trade will be seen as the next Martin Erat trade if that first round pick pans out.


2.) 11 Apr 2021 23:02:28
Just like what I said lol my cousin is a pro scout for the leafs.


3.) 11 Apr 2021 23:53:31
He seems like the type of player the leafs need. I did not want Hall.


4.) 12 Apr 2021 06:14:28
Okay JAnderson, this is the Martin Erat trade all over again even tho the first is prob 25-30 in a weak draft. Alright.

@sosa would love to hear your thoughts on staal or foligno and the trade as well :) (i don't mean this sarcastically either lol, your takes as a habs fan are pretty fair even considering u hate the leafs haha)


5.) 12 Apr 2021 06:15:24
@nylander i can't lie, u nailed ir with the three team trade prediction too on that. good s*** man.


6.) 12 Apr 2021 14:23:05
God JAndersson has no idea what he’s talking about Eric Staal is pretty washed up still a decent pickup but he’s a shell of his former self. There is not a single non elite player with more character in the NHL the Nick Foligno he does literally everything and is one of the best defensive players in the NHL. He still puts up points while doing it. Foligno was personally my number 1 target. Comparing a 25-32 pick to Filip Forsburg who was an elite prospect at the time is a joke. Just stop.


7.) 12 Apr 2021 15:24:38
TSS. well after seeing that Hall was picked up for next to nothing, maybe the 1sf for Foligno was to much. as for Staal and Foligno, well from what I've seen of Staal so far hasn't impressed me much., sure he scored the OT goal., other than that not so much
Foligno brings a different element to his game than Staal, and at this point of Staals career I will say that Foligno is the more valuable peice. This was a decent pick up for the Leafs, he's the type of player ya win with.
So at the end of the year, if Leafs are holding the cup, then the 1st was well worth it. jus like anyone who doesn't win, people will be questioning why did they give up a 1st lol.
I sure hope people are questioning it at the end of the year and not celebrating haha😝😝😝😝.


8.) 12 Apr 2021 18:00:59
There’s a few people on this site that just hate a team and trash everything they do. JAnderson is one of them. If the leafs didn’t do anything, he would’ve trashed that too.

Three Team Trade:

ARZ Trades:
Antti Raanta (10% Retained)

ARZ Recieves:
WSH 2021 2nd Round Pick
TOR 2022 2nd Round Pick
Carl Hagelin
Jonas Siegenthalar

--
WSH Trades:
2021 2nd Round Pick
Jonas Siegenthelar
Carl Hagelin

WSH Recieves:
Frederik Andersen (25% Retained)

--
TOR Trades:
Frederik Andersen (25% Retained)
2022 2nd Round Pick

TOR Recieves:
Antti Raanta (10% Retained)

I think the cap in/ cap out works here? It's pretty close, since Fred makes 5, Raanta makes 4.25, retained to 3.8, Fred makes 5, retained to 3.75, Hagelin and Sieg combined to make 3.25 approximately, so it's close.

This isn't going to happen, but my reasons for doing it for everyone:

- ARZ needs picks in this upcoming draft, they aren't making the playoffs with their tire fire team and getting two seconds for an expiring goalie with Kuemper already resigned is pretty decent. Hagelin is a cap dump, but getting Siegenthalar for that price is a pretty nice return, as he could be a 5/ 6 dman.

- WSH could use a backup goalie or 1B to Samsonov, as although Vanecek has been good, someone like Fred as a backup could do wonders in a tandem, and the real only piece they give up is the 2nd - Siegs is like a 7/ 8 dman on a fully healthy caps blueline and Hagelin is replacement level.

- TOR needs to wake up after going 1-4 and Fred with his .899% isn't good enough. Trading a liked guy in the locker room who isn't playing well is the wake up call this team needs, if the team can't rally around a better goalie in Raanta (all things considered, Raanta>>Fred, hence the addition of the second), then there are actual holes in the team, and that needs to be addressed, however, the biggest hole right now is in net, for sure.

--

Now, I'll say for sure this ain't happening, and I'm just mad at Freddie for regressing pretty hard. And say what you want about the Leafs defence, it's been a lot better lately, it's just Fred hasn't been able to make saves in timely situations, like some people said, he only makes the saves that are 'saveable' and can't steal a game or steal a save when needed. He's still a capable enough goalie, but as the bonafide 1A starter of a cup-challenging team, it isn't good enough.

TopShelfSlappers

1.) 14 Mar 2021 13:43:03
Freddie is better than Raanta. The Leafs will stay put until the offseason then make their goaltending decision. I definitely think Freddie’s poor play may lead to a reduced contract tho (years and money) .


2.) 14 Mar 2021 15:56:14
I think Fred's track record says he's a better goalie, but right now, I just don't think Fred is the better goalie anymore. His sv% right now, GAA, advanced metrics and eye test all kinda share the same results, that he isn't as good as he used to be.

I do think I may be overreacting due to his poor stretch of play, but I just don't know if I can trust Fred in another playoff run after some of the outings he's had (Dubois 2-0 goal GM5 Goal as an example) . Raanta may not warrant the 2nd, but I do think Raanta, right now, is better than Fred. Also, I think Washington is likely going to be in the market for one of Bernier or the ARZ goalies at the deadline.

You have no choice in the matter you will take it and . like it lol.

Go take a look at his defensive stats they’re ridiculous. Nothing happens when he’s on the ice. He’s also absolutely invisible offensively.


3.) 10 Apr 2021 23:42:51

Not sure who that is lol.


 

 

08 Apr 2021 00:31:59
Palmieri AND Zajac, both at 50% for a 1st, two AHL guys and a 4th.

Zajacs been playing well too surprisngly, so that’s a very low cost for both of them at 50%. Def looks like a buyers market.

TopShelfSlappers

1.) 08 Apr 2021 05:32:37
Devils got fleeced. You’re telling me Toronto could’ve got Palmieri and Zajac @ 50% for 1st, Engvall, 4th and Brooks. They would’ve had to move Kerfoot to fit them under the cap but such a missed opportunity. Imagine

Hyman - Matthews - Marner
Galchenyuk - Tavares - Nylander
Thornton - Zajac - Palmieri
Mikheyev - Spezza - Simmonds


Such a missed opportunity for the leafs.


2.) 08 Apr 2021 15:17:23
Yeah man, i wouldve loved. Palms on the Leafs, honestly was my number one choice just based on his combo of skill and versatility. Honestly even without Zajac, Palms at 50% wouldve likely just been for a 1st which is mad cheap imo.

The thing that i found really interesting is Zajac, whos scoring at a 45 points/ 82 pace right now basically got shipped for 2 depth guys and a 4th, like sheesh. If your name isn’t like Palms/ Hall/ Schwartz/ Bernier and you’re a UFA you probably get pretty low value on the market.


 

 

06 Mar 2021 21:08:26
Just a random discussion post, but isn't it kinda crazy how badly Buffalo butchered their rebuild? Like, just based on their draft selections since Risto in '13:

13: Ristolainen @8
14: Reinhart @2
15: Eichel @2
16: Nylander @8
17: Mittelstadt @8
18: Dahlin @1
19: Cozens @7
20: Quinn @8

The only real misses were Nylander @7 while Sergachev went @8, and Mittelstadt @8 while Necas/ Suzuki went @12/ 13. Even then though, both of them, especially Mittelstadt, had a real strong Draft year, as well as strong +1 years, so what became an issue? Just from looking at it, Buffalo's whole developmental team looks like a mess, and probably should undergo something like Toronto's did in 2015 when everyone - scouts, player development, fitness, etc. - was fired. Cause since the Risto draft, the only second round picks of note have been:

- Zadorov and Compher in '13
- Lemieux in '14
- Guhle (who was just waived) in '15.

With nothing else really to show for itself at the NHL level.

On top of this, the asset management has looked terrible, just looking at some of the mind-bogglingly bad decisions during the 2015-2018 stretch:

- Stafford, Myers, 1st in 2015, Lemieux, Armia for Kane and Bogosian was a steal for WPG.
- A 1st in 2015 for Legwand and Lehner, only to let Lehner walk for nothing a couple years later.
- Stealing ROR from Colorado for Zadorov, Compher and a 2nd, only to turn him into a late 1st, and two cap dumps in Berglund and Sobotka.
- Trading a 1st for Montour, only for Montour to flat out bust in Buffalo.

Everything though, from the draft picks, to Lehner, Montour, Kane, ROR, Skinner and now Hall, in addition to other trade acquisitions being terrible after arriving in the Buffalo system, it really just makes it look like the development team in Buffalo is flat-out incompetent, and the franchise isn't going to be saved no matter who they add, until they figure it out from the top down.

Having so many coaches, GM's, etc. over time doesn't do any justice, but it isn't to say Eichel hasn't been given talent around him, ROR, Kane, Skinner, Hall, Dahlin, Risto, Reinhart have all come and gone and nothing's changed - maybe you could blame Eichel, but the team and the entire front office looks like such a mess. Hopefully they figure it out soon and start drafting and developing players properly though.

Hindsight is a hell of a thing. I find it incredibly annoying when people look at a team’s past and talk about how much better they could’ve done things. You’re not necessarily doing this but it’s borderline. Sh*t happens.


2.) 07 Mar 2021 03:48:02
Nah I'm not even talking about how they could've/ should've done better. Obviously the trades are bad. But how did both Nylander and Mittelstadt go so bad? As well as all of their trade acquisitions? ROR was good in COL, middling in BUF, and became good in STL. Same with Lehner. Skinner came to Buffalo and had one good year and fell off a cliff. It's just weird, obviously some of the trades are at fault, but they could've done all the trades they did and still should theoretically be in a better place than they are now, right?


3.) 07 Mar 2021 04:02:45
They have drafted some good players over the years., obviously, some of the roster moves have been mistakes., i think they should rid them selves of the Jack Eichel era. good player. its just not working for either side.
I really think Buffalo should key in on John Gibson, some deal with Gibson and Eichel switching teams, with other parts could benefit both teams as well as players.
Also, don't resign Hall, see if ya can move him at deadline ( not sure if he has a no movement)
With Gibson, Dahlin, and solid players like Rinehart and Risto, and budding talent like Cozens, maybe things will slowly start going in the right direction.

I haven't done my homework on who can move, who can't. ect. but I do think that Buffalo should jus move on from Eichel, I'm sure he would bring in a nice haul, that might balance the team better.


4.) 07 Mar 2021 19:32:12
@Sosa

Gibson's actually a really good idea especially for Eichel. They've had such bad luck with goaltending, especially with Lehner going to NY and blossoming, I think starting from the goalie and working forward could work. Anaheim would almost definitely have to add, and the only issue for them is they basically don't have any good goaltenders in the pipeline, but acquiring a guy like Eichel would be a really good idea.

They're likely going to end up with another high pick, plus whatever they get back from Hall, Eichel as well as anyone else they choose to move. Rebuilding right for the next 2-3 years with Dahlin+++ as a foundation would be a good idea, especially if they have a goalie of the future and not guys like Hutton, etc.


5.) 07 Mar 2021 20:28:56
TSS. however, i'm all good with this team struggling, as next year they will probably be back in same division as my Habs lol

How much do you think Ducks would have to add for Eichel? I personally don't think should be that much, as Gibson is also Top End Talent, Goalies don't get enough credit for their value IMO.


6.) 08 Mar 2021 00:18:18
Haha, y'know that's fair. With Ottawa and Detroit rebuilding the right way at least, I don't know how much I really want the Sabres to also turn competent and make the Atlantic more competitive in the future.

If a Gibson/ Eichel swap happens, I honestly could see one of Anaheim's better prospects (besides Drysdale/ Zegras, imo) getting traded, probably a guy like Sam Steel gets added since he's a center, although I could see Terry or Comtois or Lundestrom instead, as well as someone like Silfverberg for cap.

Eichel+Colin Miller for Gibson+Steel+Silfverberg+ a 2nd or so?

I feel like it may be too little, but honestly, I think Gibson, Vasy and Helly are the best three goalies in the league, its just that Gibsons stuck on such a terrible team. Like you said, goalies are pretty undervalued in the league, but I think someone like Gibson, who's really a toplevel guy, will get respect from other GMs.


7.) 08 Mar 2021 04:25:26
I think what you proposed there was pretty good. my personal opinion, and maybe this is because I've had Roy or Price to cheer for, but a Goalie is the most important guy on the team. But, I haven't had a star forward to cheer for, . well pretty much ever since I started watching in 79 lol. so i'm goalie biased.


 

 

30 Nov 2020 21:56:27
2014 Redraft anyone?

Mine, personally:

1. Drais
2. Pasta
3. Point
4. Ekblad
5. Larkin
6. Nylander
7. Ehlers
8. Arvidsson
9. Reinhart
10. Fiala

I'd say 6-8 could be rearranged however, they're all really similar in points/ gp and goals/ gp, just depends on preference. Fiala only makes it cause he looks like he's coming anew in Minnesota.

TopShelfSlappers

1.) 01 Dec 2020 04:15:19
Very good list. Larkin is so underrated around the league man. I’d argue Sanheim > Fiala but all in all, solid list. The NHL Redraft on Draftsite is dog sh** lol


2.) 01 Dec 2020 04:17:15
Solid list, I’d argue that Sanheim > Fiala but all in all, good list. The redraft on Draftsite is usually dog sh** if you wanna look on Draftsite, they have McCann ahead of Fiala, Sanheim, Olofsson and DeAngelo lol


3.) 01 Dec 2020 04:18:39
Solid post, Sanheim > Fiala for me. Check out Draftsite their list is dog crap, McCann over Olofsson, DeAngelo, Sanheim lool


4.) 01 Dec 2020 05:15:14
Noooo, i thought my internet was being crappy so I kept having to recreate my comment and it added all 3 lmao


5.) 01 Dec 2020 05:24:44
I would take Larkin ahead of ekblad.


6.) 01 Dec 2020 05:29:29
I’d also say Reinhart > Arvidsson.


7.) 01 Dec 2020 06:03:42
I agree with you on that one Ebsolutley.
That turned out to be a pretty decent top 10.


8.) 03 Dec 2020 02:13:46
Now do the 2015 draft, might have to do top 30 though! Lol.


9.) 03 Dec 2020 02:22:14
Scratch that top 50 maybe. I know I’m not the first to say it lol but 2015 could easily be one of the deepest drafts ever.


10.) 03 Dec 2020 05:50:16
As a leafs fan I’d strongly look into a Nylander/ Rienhart swap.


11.) 04 Dec 2020 20:51:27
i feel like there is a huge dropoff in this list.

like stud stud stud ekblad stud and then off a cliff this list goes

and i'm a nylander fan.


12.) 05 Dec 2020 03:11:33
I’d say it’s a gradual decline then a drop off from Reinhart to Arvidsson.


13.) 05 Dec 2020 03:29:42
psta can easily have a better season than drais, point can easily have a better season than pasta

larkin is a stud defensively and eats HUGE minutes,

then off the cliff it goes.


14.) 05 Dec 2020 15:03:55
Ovie are you saying Eklblad doesn’t belong in that group? He’s a vanilla player but he is a franchise dman. He is just good at everything and plays the game right he’s rarely flashy but he rarely makes a mistake.


15.) 05 Dec 2020 15:37:24
Top 3 are franchise players, Larkin and Ekblad are really really good than Nylander, Reinhart and Ehlers are really good. I don’t even know what we’re arguing about but I think it’s a solid top 10. Lol.


16.) 12 Dec 2020 02:49:30
im not saying ekblad isn't a stud, but comparing a "vanilla" dman to all star forwards seems silly to me.

Draisaitl got snubbed hard


3.) 10 Aug 2019 06:28:30
I will hope for their sake that they somehow stupidly counted him (Draisaitl) as a winger since he played quite a bit of wing last year, too.

Also, I think Tavares is the best C on TOR.
I also wouldn't know how Scheifele and Eichel are better than Point, but maybe that's just me.


4.) 10 Aug 2019 11:33:46
Tavares is not even close to Mathews have you watched the leafs lol.


5.) 10 Aug 2019 11:34:29
Also it’s probably because they’re intelligent like me and know Drais is a product of McDavid.

Ever the train wreck of thought, vb once again batting a thousand 😂😂😂.


7.) 10 Aug 2019 14:57:54

8.) 10 Aug 2019 19:52:30
@vb
I love how the craziest part of that sentence is that you're calling yourself intelligent and not that Draisaitl is a product of McDavid.

Also, for anybody else thinking Draisaitl is a product of McDavid, how come he's like PPG for Germany? He is like the sole reason they're good.


9.) 10 Aug 2019 20:03:52

Yeah lol, Eichel is better than Point. Schief is on the same level.


10.) 10 Aug 2019 22:43:51
@the_triplets
maybe don't listen to me about Point because i had the coldest take of all time and said Dvorak will be better than Point.


11.) 10 Aug 2019 23:12:26
lol what does division 3 world hockey have to do with the NHL.


12.) 11 Aug 2019 00:49:01
@vb
The fact that as you said, it's ''division 3 world hockey'' and Draisaitl carried his entire country on his back and scored 19G 35A 54P in 53GP.
If you're saying he gets carried, who carried him on the Germany team?

AND he's has the all-time best PPG % on the German National team (! )
put that in your pipe and smoke it vb.


13.) 11 Aug 2019 07:23:46
Lol I remember you indeed saying that Dvorak thing. Aged well lol

Just saying, Eichels career high is 82 points which he got in his 4th season. Point got 92 in his third season. Yes, he's on a better team but he's also a big reason why TB is better than BUF.
So, I'd argue that offensively they are at least even.
As for defense, Point is clearly superior. Two Top 10 Selke finishes in the last couple years speak for itself I guess and that while being kinda overlooked in TB behind Stamkos, Kuch, Hedman, Vasy, etc. and TB players generally only getting recognition and therefore trophies if they are REALLY good.


14.) 11 Aug 2019 10:11:17
So the all time leader on team Mexico must be a star in the nhl to right?


15.) 11 Aug 2019 19:11:07
If he’s a point per game against the other top countries there’s a case to be made VB. Why do you have to over exaggerate everything? That’s why you don’t get taken seriously. I appreciate it’s always good for conversation you just don’t come out on top very often.


16.) 11 Aug 2019 22:19:28
I’m come out on top every time because everything I say comes true or is accurate and there is not a case of me ever being proven otherwise.

How did "Laine will score 80+ goals" turn out for you? Just to name one of a million indrecibly stupid and inaccurate things you said.

If we could, I'd be totally open to it. Honestly, trading Mo is the right move for the franchise cause frankly, he's pretty highly valued around the league despite probably not deserving such high value. Still, I just got this feeling he's going to be a leaf lifer, whether that's the right decision or not. Idk why, I just feel like mgmt considers him part of that core with the four forwards as well.

Mangiapane>>Kerfoot>Tanev

I’d be happy to keep Kerf tbh. I do like him as a player, he's probably 0.5-1M overpaid but he's definitely a good third line guy and can slide up and down the lineup. i'd obviously rather allocate his salary towards a better player (thats what all contenders would rather do), but if it came to dumping him for negative value or keeping him, i'd much rather keep him. Well still be able to resign both Chucky and Hyman and keep Kerfoot this offseason; next ones the one where you find a taker for rental Kerfoot with the Rielly contract upcoming.

Lets look at it this way:

Brady Tkachuk for Derek Ryan, Glenn Gawdin and a 1st and two 2nds? Probably not right? Ryans been on waivers, but Dzingels value compared to Ryan is probably like a 4th or so better. Not too much. Gawdin should be about equal to Logan Brown, both decent enough prospects, probably low end 3rd liners. The 1sts balance out, Calgarys doing just as poorly as Ottawa is, and two seconds for Tuchonik is probably even an overpayment. If you wouldn’t take that for Brady, why would CGY take your offer for Matthew?

If I’m Buffalo, one of Tkachuk or Lindholm would have to be going the other way tbh. Probably Tkachuk+like Zary for Eichel would be close.

Then again Buffalos a tire fire so they probably won’t even make a good Eichel trade, haha. But i agree with the others on the general premise, if Eichels being traded, its for an A+ prospect, A+ rookie or young elite player like Tkachuk.

Massive overpayment, Vrana's good man. I get the second to dump Panik, but Vrana and a 1st? Man, Mantha has to turn it around big time for Washington.
