How would you feel about this interesting trade?

Toronto trades William Nylander to Carolina for Noah Hanifin.

Two players of arguably similar value who are dealt from source of strength to fill an issue of need. Anyone need ro add?

Sid Slam

1.) 08 May 2017 18:53:05
Leafs would need to add big as Nylander is a small body and already has concussion problems which will likely shorten his career. The organization that takes Nylander is taking a big risk.

Marner for Hannifan might be more along the lines of what Carolina would need to move Hannifan. Leafs may even negotiate for a mid round pick with Hannifan.


2.) 08 May 2017 19:15:13
Lol @ similar value.
Hannifin > Nylander value wise.


3.) 08 May 2017 19:18:57
nylander and marner each got 60 points as a rookie, neither are being traded for noah. Give me a break.


4.) 08 May 2017 19:51:34
similar to the hall for larsson trade. it could happen but don't see either team give up those players at this point.


5.) 08 May 2017 20:04:14
Exactly why are people thinking that Nylander has like no value compared to Marner? Both had the same amount of points, and Willie even had more goals. Idk, i do agree that Marner has more value, but they're pretty close. The way you guys make it is that Nylander is like a nothing compared to Marner/ Matthews.


6.) 08 May 2017 20:36:49
Agree with top shelf Nylander is ridiculously underrated the gap between him and Marner isn't far. IMO it's fair. Now if he was a RHD I'd consider trading Marner for him but that's not the case.


7.) 08 May 2017 21:03:08
Honestly, atm i'd take Nylander over Marner. not to say Marner won't be he the better player. I jus really like Nylanders game. Marners size concerns me. In the playoffs he looked like a boy against men.


 

 

01 Feb 2017 17:54:24
Just my opinion but I think Babcock is wasting Nylander's talents languishing him on the Kadri line. Put him back on Matthews wing and let him do his thing! i know he is on the power play at times but at times he looks disinterested. if he isn't a Babcock guy, include him in a trade for a burgeoning young talent on the blueline.

Sid Slam

1.) 01 Feb 2017 18:50:26
You can't be serious! He is playing big minutes against top players in the league as a rookie. Maybe let him develop. He has to take his lumps and learn the NHL game. Remember you guys finished dead last.

I think you should trade JVR and Hunwick if you can. Then see what the team can do. If you make the playoffs great, if not you get a decent draft pick. Plus the assets you get from JVR, you are still building for the future. Don't trade young players like Nylander.


2.) 01 Feb 2017 19:18:19
the draft this year is not very deep, if you are trading jvr and getting a first, its going to a team that will be sending them a first in the range from 22-30th. Not worth it


3.) 01 Feb 2017 20:00:53
Hunwick isn't worth anything more than a 4th. Probably better off keeping him.


4.) 01 Feb 2017 20:47:02
I don't think Nylander will be a Leaf much longer


5.) 01 Feb 2017 21:33:15
Nylander is back Matthews now as of the line changes made today.


6.) 01 Feb 2017 22:22:15
Nylander + 1st 2017 + 1st 2018 for Shattenkirk

Right, Tankie?


7.) 01 Feb 2017 22:28:32
You have to relax on nylander. In any normal season, a 20 year old kid drafted out of a European club team, plays 15 minutes a night with players like kadri and komarov and gets on the PP, puts up 30+ points in 48 games and we're all ecstatic.

I don't see how that looks like he's being burried with unskilled players and not getting a chance. The only reason there's an ounce of negativity around his situation is that two other rookies are making the transition look easier. That's not a bad thing! He's 20, not 24. Because someone else does something a bit faster, doesn't mean he's not capable of doing it too.

If he needs to be included to make a deal happen for a young stud D on a manageable contract, then you have to be open minded and consider it. But to get rid of him because he's not treated like Matthews is just dumb.


8.) 01 Feb 2017 22:50:02
I like brown on the wing he is a better goal scorer then nylander I do believe nylander will be traded to stl they tried to trade up for him before. But not for shattering


9.) 01 Feb 2017 23:30:33
No shanks


10.) 02 Feb 2017 02:30:26
Nylander is the next Yakobust


 

 

23 Jan 2017 18:34:28
Lou Lamouriello pulls off 2 trades to fill the need for Leafs to move forward.

Martin Marincin Shea Theodore
Jeremy Bracco. Clayton Stoner
2nd round pick (2017)
From Ottawa

Then flip

Theodore. Trouba
Wllliam Nylander. Adam Lowry

Leafs get the right handed d man they covet as well as big physical center in Lowry who should mesh with Martin on the 4 th line. Lowry is a good face off guy and penalty kill.

Jets get young left handed d man who will replace Trouba but on the left side which is what they want. Nylander would add offensive skill to already impressive young core and could look good feeding Laine the puck For his big one timer off the left side.

Leafs really covet Trouba which necessitates the first deal with Ducks to get the assets needed by Jets to get the deal done.

Sid Slam

1.) 23 Jan 2017 18:59:28
What on earth is the first trade Wow


2.) 23 Jan 2017 20:11:22
What makes you think Nylander would play with Laine when Scheifele is 10x the player?


3.) 23 Jan 2017 21:02:20
Lol. Anahiem laughs and says no on the first one. And Toronto would say no on the second one.


4.) 23 Jan 2017 21:09:08
Are you crazy Yup. Your telling me that Toronto would refuse Trouba and Theo for Nylander and Lowry. If anything Winnipeg punches Lamoriello I really ace after 2 years because Toronto Cleary would win this trade.


5.) 23 Jan 2017 23:08:32
I didn't read well the traded. Yea your comments makes sense. my bad


6.) 23 Jan 2017 23:10:16
@MJH

the trade is theodore/ nylander for trouba/ lowry


so yea no from toronto there, but its a no from the ducks on the first one, making the second kinda pointless.


7.) 24 Jan 2017 02:22:33
Yep I get it now that's why I said my bad bud.


8.) 24 Jan 2017 10:52:25
I'd rather have Theodore then a worthless Lovru and a 1 dimensional Dman


 

 

20 Dec 2016 20:56:13
Hey, its approaching January, so time for another epic Toronto - Calgary blockbuster trade.

Maple Leafs get. - defenseman Dougie Hamilton and center/ winger Sam Bennett as well as Flames 1st round pick in 2017

Flames get. - center Nazem Kadri, center/ winger William Nylander, Alberta born defense prospect - Andrew Nielsen and Leafs 2nd rounder ( from Ottawa ) in 2017.

In another possible deal
Toronto trades JVR and emerging offensive prospect Jeremy Bracco to the Islanders for shut down defenseman Travis Hamonic.

Sid Slam

1.) 20 Dec 2016 21:08:23
no way from the flames giving up way to much Toronto would have to add there 1st in there and probably something else.


2.) 20 Dec 2016 22:02:48
Imo Torontos 1st is worth that whole package considering they'll Finnish last in the NHL.


3.) 20 Dec 2016 23:17:18
Sorry, Yzerman19, don't see it that way! Hamilton may be better than Kadri but nylander i'd better than Bennett and Nielsen is abit of a wild card here. Since the 2017 draft is considered weak and neither Leafs and Calgary will pick top 8, the picks will not be that much of a factor. Besides, Brian Burke loves Kadri and their is a shadow of doubt surrounding Hamilton. Facror in the salary consideatins and this deal has wings.


4.) 20 Dec 2016 23:20:04
You think Patrick Nolan is worth Dougie Hamilton, Bennett and a first round pick? I think I'm done with this website if you're being serious. Idiot.


5.) 20 Dec 2016 23:22:14
Flames counter with: Backlund + Bennett + Andersson (Defense Prospect) + 2nd for Reilly + Nylander + 1st

Obviously I'm joking and I hope you are too. Same with VB.


6.) 20 Dec 2016 23:56:34
So Bennett would turn into leafs 1C, a young top 4 offensive Dman, a 1st for that? You got to be joking? Terrible for Calgary.


7.) 21 Dec 2016 00:32:56
bennett would not be torontos 1c, he couldn't even carry mathews bag from the bus, wake up.


8.) 21 Dec 2016 00:48:44
Am I blind or is it a Leafs 2nd pick not 1st? Plus Hamilton > Kadri, Bennet > Nylander, 1st > prospect + 2nd.


9.) 21 Dec 2016 01:37:58
@Oil Kings, please tell me you don't think Bennett will be a number 1 center over Matthews, fact is at this point, he is playing more wing than center for Calgary. As for Hamilton, he will be traded this season and it will be his 3rd team in his 4 years in the league! What does that tell you? Truth is Nylander is now and will continue to be a much better player than Bennett while Hamilton will be no more than a number 4 guy on any team he plays for? Last but not least, whether you think so or not, Kadri is a player Calgary covets . The draft picks involved aren't quite as important as you think.


10.) 21 Dec 2016 05:37:04
Buddy he would be right next to Reilly if he played for the leafs. The leafs defence is straight trash. And I meant number 1C cause you wouldn't wanna play a rookie number 1 Center would you? Matthews isn't that good. He isn't McDavid so stop trying to value him like he is. It would be Bennett (for now), Matthews, Bozak down the middle.


11.) 21 Dec 2016 05:51:23
Hey Sid Slam before you say anything else in Hamilton look up: Brian Burke on Hamilton Rumours.


12.) 21 Dec 2016 12:48:49
Hamilton shouldn't be going anywhere, he's been the best dman on Calgs so far this year by a decent amount. I don't usually trust Burke but I definitely don't think Dougie is going anywhere.


13.) 21 Dec 2016 13:12:47
Mathews isn't that good? He's the best rookie in the game. Sure laine has 3-4 more points but he doesn't play a 200
Foot game and not out there playing against the best centers in the game. Mathews is better than anyone on the flames as a complete player and he's 19. Johnny hockey is great, but not a complete player.


14.) 21 Dec 2016 15:37:40
Kudo's. Most fair trade I've ever seen any leafs fan propose. Looks reasonable for once.


15.) 23 Dec 2016 22:41:26
This trade is so far outta this plane that you'd have to be on drugs to accept this.
Calgary would be getting robbed!
Typical leafs fan.
Give us your best and we will give ya nothing back.
How about Matt Stajan for your next 3 years first.
Seems about as legit as this trade.


 

 

16 Nov 2016 02:28:18
Trade JVR while his value is high!
Leafs and Islanders make a trade.

JVR and Jake Gardiner

For.

Nick Leddy and. Ryan Pulock.

The time is right! Leafs if they add a number 1 defenceman actually have a chance to win it all this season.

Coyotes are really bad and will be for some time so maybe, just maybe - Oliver Ekman- Larsson might be made available.

Marner OEL
Kapanen
1st rounder in 2018

Too much to give up? Not enough? You tell me

Sid Slam

1.) 18 Oct 2017 18:48:37
Go away. Marner has an average start to the season so you bandwagons wanna ship him off ASAP. he's a soph. give him a break. and idek if either team will do that. OEL is a cornerstone, but Toronto gives up a possible elite player, a middle six winger with 40 point potential and a first. idk if either team would budge.


2.) 18 Oct 2017 19:29:24
TopShelfSlappers


Hey, I am a huge Marner fan and my proposal has nothing to do with his early season troubles! What do Leafs need more than anything, absolutely a top cornerstone (as you called him ) defenceman like OEL Have to give up something to get something so Toronto would be dealing from a strength to address a weakness. Kapanen may or may not become an asset. Thus far, it hasn't happened. The first round pick which would be a late pick is just an added entisement.


3.) 18 Oct 2017 19:39:05
Hahahahaha! Tooooo good. I love these posts.
Not even remotely close for OEL. Wow.


4.) 18 Oct 2017 19:40:37
Oh never mind! My bad! didn't see Marner there.

Weird how it's written out tho

Marner OEL
Kapanen
1st rounder 2018.

I love how he's moved to fourth line to shake things up a bit and get him going. Wake his ass up in a sense. And you want to ship him away. Were you the same guy who said he was the next P. Kane?! Lol.


5.) 19 Oct 2017 01:35:23
I legit thought you might have proposed Kapanen + 1st for OEL. 🙈🙈🙈. I've seen just as crazy proposals on this site so ya can't blame me!


6.) 19 Oct 2017 14:18:15
Kadri was sent to 4th line and then scratched a few games 2 seasons ago. Scored 32 goals last year. Nylander s compete level wasn't great last year and Babcock dropped him to the 4th line for 8-10 games and everyone panicked. We all know how that has turned out since. Marner just got a little too comfortable with guaranteed PP time and opportunity. Babcock is just reminding him that nothing is given and that there's a 20 goal scorer on the 4th line more than willing to take his spot and compete (Brown has 2 straight GWGs since the swap) . Marner will be back up and flying in no time.


7.) 19 Oct 2017 16:50:30
Can switch Brown off now. Might as well trade Marner. Too bad his trade value is all time low.
😜😜😂. Jk jk.


8.) 19 Oct 2017 22:44:14
Can't* switchi brown off now.


9.) 21 Oct 2017 05:18:42
They turned down Toronto's 1st (matthews) for OEL lol that was a mistake


 

 

15 Mar 2017 06:16:23
If there was any doubt maple leafs weren't a playoff caliber team, they let it be known loud and clear tonight against Florida.

Easily the worst defence in the league, Lamouriello gets a failing grade at the deadline for nor atleast doing something to shore up that horrid group of minor leaguers masquerating as NHL defencemen! Gardiner and Rielly are constantly over matched in their own end and Zaitsev is a turnover machine of late Truth be known, Toronto doesn't have a no. 1 or no. 2 defenceman and the prospect of finding one without giving up a Marner or Nylander is unlikely.

Leafs have fallen into the Oiler model of reform by totally ignoring the backend. The future, once thought to be bright is years away from bearing fruit. Start the rebuild!

Sid Slam

1.) 15 Mar 2017 12:12:25
Buddy, are you a troll?

Everyone here, leaf fan or not, know ps the leafs defense is subpar.
And that game, that gut-wrenching game easily showed it.
But remember, that's still only 1 game out of 82, it still may not break the leafs season.


And also, crtiquing Lou on not making a trade and stating 'let the rebuild begin' are contradictory. THe reason Lou didn't trade for a dman is because usually when the Leafs do that, the guy who the other team gets becomes Scott Niedermayer.

So yeah, playoffs oe no playoffs, yhis has been 100% a step up from last season. Don't come out butthurt now because of one loss. We've had many like that (Nashville, Tampa, LA)


2.) 15 Mar 2017 12:48:34
Sid lay off the paint chips.


3.) 15 Mar 2017 14:10:37
If u think Lou is actually making the decisions than u are a fool.


4.) 15 Mar 2017 15:20:59
I think the Leafs are going inbthe right direction. this was a horrible, boring team the last couple years. now., they complete hard almost every night ( they are full of rookies, so occasionally they have an oops) . they are exciting, they have a good steady goalie. ya
. they could probably use a good hard nosed stay at home dman. or 2. and not Polak. Leafs fans should be happy., good things are coming for years to come. as a Habs fan, kinda jealous. lol. we are apparently in win now mode. and we can't win now. we have Sergachev comin up. other than that, we have a lot or career minor league guys.
So don't lose patience. there is no guarantees Leafs will win a cup, but they are in the path to at least compete for one.


5.) 15 Mar 2017 16:38:59
Ok, here is the situation! Leaf management has had 6 months to address or influence the make up the blueline. The sum total of changes - add Marchenko and subtract Frankie Corrado. Seriously, this is how you work to improve your team in a rebuild? Six months of trotting out the same flunkies game after game and destroying any confidence these guys may have had to begin with.

As far as I am concerned, Lamoureillo is a big part up the problem. and yes, I believe he has full control of all trades. Wasting a 2nd round pick on a guy like Boyle was a mistake and I really like Boyle as a player but he is a 2 month rental and isn't a game changer one way or another. Packaging that pick with a player like JVR. for a developing young defenceman like Haydyn Fleury or Shea Theodore would be q better solution IMO. Until the potential and ability of the blueline catches up to the upside of the forwards, Leafs rise to the top will slow to a trickle.


6.) 15 Mar 2017 22:39:53
Everything now has to be done within 6 months? You're clearly clueless or trolling.


7.) 15 Mar 2017 23:17:28
Did slam if you were gm what would you have done to shore up your defense with out trading off marner or nylander. They tried to get shatty and he refused to sign. What would you gave done differently?


8.) 16 Mar 2017 23:02:27
Well Shankar, as usual I see you don`t have anything to say. an original thought would be nice but I have learned to put up with your limitations.
As for getting things done in 6 months - what's the hold up?
Trade the assets that are not relevant anymore like JVR and atleast get a start at stockpiling some future talent on the blueline. Pretty sure Jvr and the 2nd given up for Boyle would have got you Shea Theodore.


9.) 17 Mar 2017 12:51:49
So you could have gotten a 1st from Anaheim for JVR. You will not get a stud defenseman for a 25 goal scorer that disappears for large stretched of games. The whole league is looking for top 2 defenseman. I tell you over and over you have to draft defenseman. Unfortunately the draft only happens once a year. Last year you team was dead last! You picked up a top 4 defenseman for free in Zeitzev. Quit whining about your poor defense and be happy your team is fighting for a playoff spot and not the first overall pick.


10.) 17 Mar 2017 13:27:46
You say I have limitations, then you immediately have this stroke of genius. "Trade the assets that are not relevant any more" What the heck is an irrelevant asset? If you want to try to insult me, go ahead. But at least don't do it and then say something deserving of ridicule right after. It defeats the purpose of the insult, you know.

Anyway, back on topic. You do realize that the league is not a video game, right? You can't just go around and make 15 trades in one day. Sure, one side may want to do something, but you need two to make a trade (this may be news to you judging by your apparent limitations) . Also, why make a trade if you don't feel the value is fair? That's making a trade for the sake of making a trade, which is about the most stupid thing that can be done.

And no, JVR and the 2nd from the Boyle trade would not have gotten Theodore, how in the world could you even think that's possible?


11.) 20 Mar 2017 17:33:41
Where have I said Leafs should make 15 trades in one day? Obviously, you don't read very well either. What I said was it was time to address the needs on the blueline now with what ever assets you may have that aren't in the plans going forward. If you give up a 2 nd round plck for a ufa player like Boyle as Leafs did, it seems feasable that Anaheim would consider giving up a prospect like Theodore who isn't even on the roster for a 20 goal winger for a chance to go deep in the playoffs. Plus, JVR has another reasonable year on his contract. The 2nd. Rounder would be gravy.


12.) 29 Mar 2017 19:12:45
#1 finding good young D isn't that easy, not even talking about #1 or #2 guys, but just top 4 men.

#2 they're definitely going in the right direction

#3 they have 3 really good young D playing huge roles for the Marlies that might make the jump (Dermott, Nielson, valiev)

#4 JVR isn't relevant anymore? He's 26 or 27 years old, consistently puts up 25 goals and plays PP in tight to the net when no one else can.

#5 they didn't finish the tear down till last season! It's year 1 of the build and just because their young forwards have exceeded expectations and been great, idiots like you think the rest is awful. They have gone from 30th to pushing for a playoff spot. Most fans would be ecstatic and understand that it's still a process and this doesn't mean it's over, but always people like you that think because they won a few more games than expected, this must be the finished product. Their best players are teenagers, they have lots of time!


 

 

14 Feb 2017 04:29:02
Regarding Leafs Lunch analyst Patrick O'Sullivan's comment about the lack of contribution by Connor Brown on Auston Matthew's wing for the Toronto Maple Leafs.
I believe O'Sullivan is a real dufus but he got his head out of his ass to get this one right. Brown has NHL speed but lacks hockey sense and pure skill to add much to Matthews arsenal. Sure, he works hard and plays good defence but adds litle offensively to this line.
We know Babcock is a stubborn SOB when it comes to " his guys " but Nylander or even Soshnikov needs to play on the right wing to get Matthews going.

Sid Slam

1.) 14 Feb 2017 05:49:37
agree with everything you said.


2.) 14 Feb 2017 23:20:27
I replied to a Pat O'Sullivan tweet on Twitter, asked a legit question in rebuttal to what he posted (no passive-aggressiveness or asinine talk like I post on here, a legit back and forth sort of inquiry), and not only did he not answer it but he blocked me, simply because I didn't agree with him 100%. He's a whiney dbag. His shorthand defines him, he's definitely a POS. His head is firmly packed tightly up into his own ass.

Sorry, that didn't really add to the conversation, mostly just a complaint. So I guess I'm a whiney dbag too. Haha. Carry on.


 

 

19 Dec 2016 01:58:25
Leafs need to trade JVR before teams realize how over rated he really is!
Islanders are probably the likely victim. If, somehow they can pry Travis Hamonic or Nick Leddy out of Brooklyn for him, that would be grand larceny and Lamouriello would be my hero. However, Leddy would also probably cost them a good prospect like Bracco in order to get this deal done.
So, thinking along those lines, I could see deal like

JVR Leddy
Bracco. 1st round pick (2017)
3rd rounder (2017)
2nd rounder (2018)

Sid Slam

1.) 19 Dec 2016 03:42:01
What? What exactly is the trade?


2.) 19 Dec 2016 04:36:49
Trade is kinda difficult to understand at the bottom, not sure which way the 2nd and 3rd are going but I guess it's not a bad idea, I can't see the Isles moving Leddy tho. I'd imagine he'd be one of the last guys to be moved.


3.) 19 Dec 2016 04:48:06
Uh, he plays for the leafs. How could he possibly be overrrated?


4.) 19 Dec 2016 07:57:59
Trade was JVR, Bracco, 3rd rounder in 2017 plus a 2nd round in 2018 to the Islanders for Leddy and Islanders 1st rounder in 2017.


5.) 20 Dec 2016 01:54:50
I'd do it.


6.) 20 Dec 2016 02:23:54
@Sid ok better then what I thought it read. I read it as JVR+Bracco for Leddy+1st,2nd&3rd. Still don't see the isles moving Leddy tho.


 

 

10 Dec 2016 17:44:42
Don't get why posters are such Zach Hyman haters? Those who say he has no business being on Matthews line obviously are not watching the games. Leafs best fore checker, wins the battles in the corners and behind the net and is an underrated playmaker. The guy who is a passenger on this line is Connor Brown. Has done nothing for the past 6 games or so. Good speed but too small to compete for the puck. Personally, if not Nylander, I would like to see either Soshnikov or a call up of Kapanen given a look, replacing Brown as the rw. on Matthews line.

Sid Slam

1.) 10 Dec 2016 18:11:51
Hmmm. Wow, I actualy never saw it that way (I'm not being sacrastic) . I thought Hyman was the guy doing nothing, but I actually looked, and yeah, Browns been doing nothing. Brown played better with Kadri and Komarov than he did with Matthews. Didn't Brown have his four point game with Kadri/ Komarov? Idk why Babcock decided to switch Brown to the Matthews line, Brown is more suited for the checking line.

and yeah, i admit it, i did hate hyman taking so much icetime before, but you make a good point.


2.) 10 Dec 2016 22:42:28
Brown covers up for d he is responsible but the line should be

Sosh mathews brown.


3.) 11 Dec 2016 14:58:48
Anyone know why they're not giving Rychel a chance to play? I haven't been able to watch as many games as I'd like to this year but I'd like to see him in the line up.


4.) 11 Dec 2016 17:53:20
@leafs17

i think rychels started poorly in the AHL. I'd much rather see Brandon Leipsic or Kasperi Kapanen over him. He'd be a nice bottom six winger for us though, but Babcock just loves Ben Smith.


5.) 11 Dec 2016 22:52:26
Thanks top shelf.

I believe the thinking is sound as is the value but it can never happen. its hard enough to find one GM who has the balls to pull off that deal, let alone three!

Very bad proposal! Obviously, you are a Habs fan but to get an emerging star like Mantha, you would need to give up Sergachev and a top forward like McCarron and maybe even more.

@Oil Kings, please tell me you don't think Bennett will be a number 1 center over Matthews, fact is at this point, he is playing more wing than center for Calgary. As for Hamilton, he will be traded this season and it will be his 3rd team in his 4 years in the league! What does that tell you? Truth is Nylander is now and will continue to be a much better player than Bennett while Hamilton will be no more than a number 4 guy on any team he plays for? Last but not least, whether you think so or not, Kadri is a player Calgary covets . The draft picks involved aren't quite as important as you think.

Sorry, Yzerman19, don't see it that way! Hamilton may be better than Kadri but nylander i'd better than Bennett and Nielsen is abit of a wild card here. Since the 2017 draft is considered weak and neither Leafs and Calgary will pick top 8, the picks will not be that much of a factor. Besides, Brian Burke loves Kadri and their is a shadow of doubt surrounding Hamilton. Facror in the salary consideatins and this deal has wings.

Agree that is way too many moving parts as yup suggests, however Lindholm to Jets might not be out of the question. Personally, I think Trouba is highly overated but Ducks couldbe convinced if Winnipeg took back some salary. How about. - Trouba and a good young prospect like Roslovic or Armia for Lindholm and a salary dump like Stoner.
