Hjalmarsson + Domi

Gardiner + Leivo


1.) 15 Feb 2018 16:33:36
I don't see the leafs doing that trade though I'm pretty sure Babcock would love a guy like Hjalmarsson on his team.

2.) 15 Feb 2018 18:10:39
Man if Toronto is offered that without a doubt they take it imo.

3.) 15 Feb 2018 23:08:13
Agree with McJ.



06 Feb 2018 05:52:54
Leivo + Sosh + Liljegren + Gardiner + 1st

Kane + Bogosian

Let me explain why. Leafs need guys who will drop the gloves, as well as play hockey.
Saturday against Bos the Leafs played with fear. Dermott gets hit(knee on knee) and no one even went up to Backes.

Trade Bozak Moore and JVR


1.) 06 Feb 2018 06:09:47
Could see buffalo accepting it yup.

2.) 06 Feb 2018 07:32:52
yes from buffalo, hell no from toronto.

3.) 06 Feb 2018 11:05:29
I agree the leafs would get man handled by the Bruins with their current line up but I don’t want those guys. Bogasian hurts himself getting out of bed in the morning and Kane can go drag down another team. I’d rather Maroon. I really wish leaf fans would stop trading Liljegren. He is a big, right handed defenseman that most teams are looking for. Let’s see how he develops before trading him. The leafs are NOT winning the cup this year so let’s not trade away the future like they’ve done so many times before.

4.) 06 Feb 2018 16:07:44
Leafs17 what would do you think leafs would offer for Maroon, or a type of player comparable to Maroon?

5.) 06 Feb 2018 17:15:02
Until Liljegren proves himself. he is only a prospect at his time. and I never understand why right or left hand matters.

6.) 06 Feb 2018 19:08:26
If lillegren is out of the deal is it any closer? Leivo, shosh, gardiner and 1st for kane and bogosian? Still sounds pricey for the leafs, kane a UFA at seasons end and i'm not sold on bogosian. whose he replacing, polak? Seems silly to trade all that just to improve the 6th defenceman and a rental.

7.) 06 Feb 2018 20:15:26
Maybe Ristolainen instead of Bogosian.

8.) 06 Feb 2018 21:36:57
Yes Balsam he is only a prospect but like I said, the leafs are NOT winning the cup this year. Why trade away these kids for two guys that will not make them contenders? I did not say until Liljegren proves himself. I said let’s see how he develops, big difference. I could see a small trade because Toronto has too many forwards and they could use some defensive depth. I’m not even going to get into why right or left matters.
I suggested Kapanen for Maroon a few weeks ago McJ and I believe it was mixed feelings on that. Maybe Soshnikov or Leivo plus a 2nd? I’m not sure.

9.) 06 Feb 2018 23:39:42
Both of those offers I think Edmonton could gladly accept imo, and Toronto or any team in this league could use a maroon type player just sucks oilers can’t keep him.

10.) 07 Feb 2018 21:29:23
I agree 100% with mcjesus, maroon is too slow. Unless he comes with mcdavid, why would you want him?



03 Oct 2017 04:19:20
One source says Lupul passed physical but
John Shannon(SN) reports, failed
If Lupul does somehow pass independent physical, does he play in NHL or AHL?


1.) 03 Oct 2017 05:36:26
I read he passed the NHL physicals and is healthy to play. If the league forces to Leafs to use him, he counts to their cap and that could be huge negatively for the Leafs.

2.) 03 Oct 2017 08:35:58
I hope he has to play that’s like cheating.

3.) 03 Oct 2017 17:25:15
Bill Daley just told Sportsnet that both Lupul and Hossa failed their physicals that the league themselves were doing and both are eligible for LTIR now.

4.) 03 Oct 2017 18:16:58
Bill Daly confirms both Hossa and Lupul failed their physicals!

5.) 03 Oct 2017 20:18:26
They both failed.

6.) 03 Oct 2017 20:20:13
And he wouldn't play for the leafs. He would just count against their cap. They didn't want him around the young guys on the leafs, wouldn't want him around the young guys on the marlies but his contract stops him from being loaned anywhere else, such as ECHL. So he would count on the cap but still be a castoff.



13 Jun 2017 06:04:26
After expansion draft trade

Nsh PK(20% retained)

Keep in mind, JVR to teams like Ana and Min for dman defeats the purpose, get something instead of losing for nothing in exp draft. In other words if JVR is going the other way, he still has to be protected.


1.) 13 Jun 2017 06:47:20
I think this is one of the most stupid and retarded trades ever. Ok is worth waaaaaaaay more than JVR.

2.) 13 Jun 2017 07:06:13
Add like 3 first rounds to JVR.

3.) 13 Jun 2017 07:16:18
Even more add 3 first and b prospect and maybe and 20% of Salary I can't say enough how this is a horrible trade and leafs will never never ever ever get subban for JVR just dream on bud and btw I am a habs fan but I live in Toronto and Toronto is my second fav team and this would never happen.

4.) 13 Jun 2017 07:19:20
BTW sorry Jpaps ik I'm might of sounded really rude dude but just got to say that I can see you are a huge Toronto fan but with very little hockey knowledge or u just overvalue your players wayyy too much just like ft4all.

5.) 13 Jun 2017 10:48:43
I'm official done with this website. Kane for Jordie Benn.

6.) 13 Jun 2017 17:21:09
Top RD retained as well for JVR? C'mon, you sound like a blue and orange fan with tunnel vision.

7.) 14 Jun 2017 02:38:37
Just awful. Can't be serious.

8.) 14 Jun 2017 21:24:45
LOL ya right. nice try Leafs fan.

Now way Jose.



26 Jun 2016 11:11:15
Harrington for Rychel str8 up.
Great trade for the Leafs.
Next: trade Bozak Michalek and Kadri for solid young dman.
Try to sign Stammer and Vessy.

JVR Stamkos Marner
Vessey Matthews Hyman
Leivo Nylander Kapanen
Greening Laich Komarov

Very possible.


1.) 26 Jun 2016 11:35:02
Keep Kadri, Play Nylander as a winger
Kadri is on a great contract and brings value, and honestly I don't like Kadri but I respect his style of play and what he brings to the table as a 2/ 3 center

The Leafs will role 4 lines and their depth will be better with kadri
Also Sosh will 100% be in the starting line up

Jvr Stamkos Marner
Vesset Matthews Nylander
Komarov Kadri Soshnikov (most annoying line in hockey)
Greening Laich Lievo
Kapanen will be in the ahl for another year i believe kid is still only 19.

2.) 26 Jun 2016 15:55:43
I agree with bigz one of the best contracts in the game.

3.) 26 Jun 2016 16:23:39
Yeah Kapanen was the youngest player on the youngest team in the league. He turns 20 in a month. Matthews will be sheltered on the third line ths year, I think he will be playing with Komarov and Hyman to give him some gritty guys.

4.) 26 Jun 2016 17:25:14
Lol this is very not possible.

5.) 27 Jun 2016 04:25:45
VB you continue to amaze me everyday. Kadri is not anywhere near one of the best contracts. JVR sure, Kadri tho? Honestly laughable.

Leafs really need to add some toughness/sandpaper at least two players. Gudas and Simmons on the leafs would definitely fit that bill...trading Gardiner for a 1st anywhere can really make it happen. Gardiner does more damage then good


1.) 21 Feb 2019 17:18:58
If Gardiner does more damage than good when would a team give a first for him? Gardiner is the Leafs 3rd best Dman, I can’t see them moving him while trying to compete this year.

2.) 21 Feb 2019 20:55:03
Gardiner is gone.

3.) 21 Feb 2019 23:41:15
Gardiner isn't worth a 1st.

4.) 22 Feb 2019 02:46:16
Gardiner is not worth a 1st. Would a contending team pay that, possibly? They better let him walk next year. He makes some great stretch passes and gets the puck to the net but the leafs need steady defenseman. He’s not as bad as some people make him out to be but he can be hard to watch some nights.

5.) 22 Feb 2019 06:02:14
Pk subban was hard to watch a lot of nights in montreal too. Funny thing hapoened when he left he magically turned into the best dman of all time lol.

6.) 22 Feb 2019 14:14:04
I haven’t seen much of Subban but I’m sure he’s still questionable defensively. It’s just the people on this site that will magically think Gardiner is the best of all time once traded.

7.) 22 Feb 2019 14:56:52
That's what I mean leafs17 he will instantly move up in rank as soon as he leaves. one thing I will say about gardiner is I believe if he was paired with the right type of partner he would look a lot better defensively. solid player IMO.

8.) 22 Feb 2019 20:34:51
Yes Gardiner would look good with a stay at home defenseman. Could you imagine if Gardiner went to Winnipeg? I know a couple people around here that would think he is a god.



18 Feb 2018 20:17:46
The Leafs won't go deep into the playoffs with the current defense. With that being said, if the don't get a stud dman by the trade deadline,they should dump JVR/Bozak for assets.


1.) 18 Feb 2018 20:37:30
Pittsburgh won a cup with a horrible looking defence . never say never.

2.) 18 Feb 2018 20:47:36
Which teams will give up their own stud dman for a bunch of ufa’s? Sorry to break it to you leafs fans but if you’re ever getting a stud dman you got to give up a first round pick or Dermott or Liljegren. No team is going to do your team a favour.

3.) 19 Feb 2018 05:11:11
He didn’t say the leafs will get a top defenseman for UFA’s. He said that they’re not going to win a cup with their current defense so dump the UFA’s for assets. Your judgement of leaf fans is always appreciated though.

4.) 19 Feb 2018 18:25:52
Well said Leafs17.

5.) 19 Feb 2018 20:42:22
Some people read what they want to read and then judge the entire fan base. It’s pretty comical how some morons group everyone together when every teams fan base has some delusional ones.



16 Feb 2018 19:20:47
My Leafs trade deadline prediction

Out Bozak/JVR and picks
In Carolina dman/Maroon


1.) 16 Feb 2018 19:50:33
Why does Carolina or Edm want a UFA Bozak or JVR?

2.) 16 Feb 2018 20:49:29
I don’t think he means JVR and Bozak are going to those teams but I could be wrong. Jpaps I wish you were right but I think the leafs care more about their speed game than physicality. I’d love to see a little more grit and a Carolina defenseman sounds like what they need as well. I really don’t think anyone is going out at the deadline. The summer will be a different story.

3.) 16 Feb 2018 21:00:06
Not saying they trade with each other.



17 Jun 2017 05:38:33
For over a year I'm hearing top forward(too many to list) + top prospect + 1st rdp for Drouin. I said not even close. I was right TB ends up getting a very promising young dman.

DRAMA usually lowers your true value


1.) 17 Jun 2017 06:39:48
Who was proposing top forward + top prospect + 1st for Drouin?

2.) 17 Jun 2017 07:54:24
Neven seen anyone propose that on here, not even me lol. Return of a top 5 prospect in the league + maybe a 2nd rounder is good, given the fact TB couldn't and didn't want to give him the contract he got from MTL.

3.) 17 Jun 2017 15:32:26
I might be the only one but I believe Tampa won the trade. I believe that Sergachev is a top 4 defenseman. I also believe he is the missing element on the Tampa D. They needed a puck mover to take advantage of their highly talente forwards. If you look at Drouin he gets most of his points on the PP. Yes Montreal needs scoring but Montreal's system does not really allow for creativity.
I guess we will find out but this was a great trade for people to talk about.

4.) 18 Jun 2017 00:29:07
Never heard all that going for Drouin. i think Drais said it best. they did get a really good return. and everyone is saying that Habs have won this trade. however, . wouldn't say that jus yet. this is one that will have to be revisited in like 7 years. like I said before, really happy to have Drouin, however am torn. Sergachev is going to be a Stud Dman that all teams would want. And Tampa already has arguably the best all around Dman in the game .

5.) 18 Jun 2017 00:30:50
Guys this is the same guy that proposed JVR for Subban (20% retained) he's just a troll. Best off ignored.



12 Jun 2017 08:38:52
If you're a GM, what would you give for Drouin?
Keep in mind, RFA and will be looking for a hefty raise. Also the circus he create the other year. I believe negotiations will be a circus all over again.


1.) 12 Jun 2017 09:14:12
Offer him a "Bridge Contract. " Being an RFA, if he balks at the numbers, let him sit in limbo. If someone decides to offer him the money he thinks he deserves, Tampa could get a lot back in compensation.

If he signs at an average salary between $4 million and $5 million a season, Tampa would receive two first round picks, a second round pick and a third round pick. If his average salary exceeds $5 million a season, Tampa gets four first round picks.

If he accepts the "Bridge Contract, " you've got two or three years to access both his talent and his attitude.

Being a playmaker, he is an ideal linemate for a shooter like Steven Stamkos. But you don't want to wed yourself with a "problem child. "

Tampa needs to proceed with caution.

2.) 12 Jun 2017 11:59:22
Tampa should keep him. SY has some control about Drouin bc he is a RFA, he can do the same thing like he did with Kucherov last year. I just hope no team makes an offer sheet for him. Would like to see him and Stammer on the same line for a whole season.

3.) 12 Jun 2017 16:16:56
Lol I like how you ask a short question and spent 2/ 3 of your post on giving the answer already and leading everyone in a negative direction, which you wish to hear as an answer.
You won't get Drouin for cheap, he is over his issues and an elite talent.

4.) 12 Jun 2017 16:39:05

Overvaluing Drouin a bit. he's good not elite tho.

5.) 12 Jun 2017 21:43:48
As a leafs fan I'd offer Kadri/ Gardiner, Kappenen/ Dermotte and 17th ovr but the leafs don't have the Assists to acquire him nor do they need him.

6.) 13 Jun 2017 10:36:53
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.

Toronto can also use players that are tough, drop the gloves and can actually play hockey. Until then.

Martin Komarov Kapanen.
