Leafs- nylander
Nash- fabbro and '19 1st

Saying that fabbro will join the preds after ncaa season is over, if he's good enough to join the preds he's definatley good enough to join the leafs. So leafs get a young controllable two way right handed dman they want. They save cap space for next year and nylander goes to western conference. Preds gain more scoring and I believe they can afford his contract as well. Win win for both teams


1.) 21 Jan 2019 00:59:22
Honestly man I doubt Nashville wants Nylander contract they all have such good contracts on that team then and he’s obvs not living up to what he should be playing. I think Nashville declines imo.

2.) 21 Jan 2019 03:07:40
Fabbro is a very highly rated prospect player. Very impressive, his numbers have gotten better every year since being drafted, even as the compete level has increased. Between Fabbro and Liljegren, at least one of those guys should work out as Rielly’s partner, and hopefully the other replaces Zaitsev.

3.) 21 Jan 2019 11:55:07
If I'm Preds I keep Fabbro.

4.) 21 Jan 2019 14:10:59
Why Nashville give up fabbro and a 1st for 7 million guy on pace for like 12 points and -30? Seems like horrible deal for Nashville. Or is there a superstar on Nashville that can make him better than he is?

5.) 21 Jan 2019 14:12:11
Maybe fabbro alone but that's a stretch.

6.) 21 Jan 2019 16:59:10
Why would any team want over paid Nylander. In the game against the Coyotes he was on the bench laughing and joking. All this while his team is losing and he is playing horribly. That's not the type of player any good team would want.

7.) 21 Jan 2019 20:35:11
I saw that video highlight of Nylander this morning again too. I didn’t have a good impression of him either. I actually boo’d the tv. It’s impossible to blame Nylander for all the Leafs misfortunes. But it seems entirely too coincidental that they start losing shortly after he rejoined them. He’s unbalanced the entire team as they try to fit him back in the roster. It’s not working out the way they had hoped. Nylander was a distraction all year, and now he is even worse than a distraction. He’s physically contributing to this skid in Leafs performance. I’m starting to wonder if maybe Dubas is regretting not trading Nylander now? At minimal, I hope Dubas has learned a valuable lesson about making public statements and promises that are dependent on other people in order to fulfill. Now Dubas still has to contend with Matthews and Marner, and is under a very public spoken obligation not to trade Nylander. It’s commitments like that, made to the public, that Dubas absolutely has to keep. He can’t break those promises. The backlash would be brutal.

Tor- nylander
Col- Timmins 19 1st

Leafs get a very good defence prospect, who should make the team next year, sure they could trade nylander for someone to help now but in my opinion I'd rather trade for a younger possibly higher ceiling d man than a Brett Pesce or something similar, even if it doesn't help them now. Toronto also adds cap space to help with the possibility that marner wants more than originally expected.
Colorado gets secondary scoring in nylander to take pressure off the big line as well as gives nylander a change in scenery to maybe help him find his game back.


1.) 12 Jan 2019 01:24:09
Leafs don't need a d prospect at least not for willie . they need a d to try and win the cup in the next three years.

2.) 12 Jan 2019 02:35:43
Timmins has yet to play a game this year as he recovers from a very serious concussion. While Timmins used to be ranked just as highly as Makar, and even higher depending on the analyst, Makar is the better choice by far now.

3.) 12 Jan 2019 05:40:07
My first thought was Makar, I changed it to Timmins based on style of play, but I personally think Makar has a higher ceiling than Timmins. I just don’t think they should trade nylander for a d man like Pesce. Nothing personal towards Pesce cause I do think he’s good but if you could get someone like Makar that sure hasn’t played a nhl game but more than likely will be a much better player than Pesce wouldn’t you rather get the better player. If leafs were to trade nylander for pesce I think they’d be settling on lesser value just to add someone they think is a slight upgrade now rather than get a guy that’ll be a huge upgrade next year and the year after. rant over.

4.) 12 Jan 2019 21:25:29
The thought of trading Nylander for a prospect player, no matter how highly rated, automatically carries risk, as the prospect is so unproven. In Makar’s case, he’s playing NCAA, which is significantly less competitive than AHL or KHL. When looking how well the class surrounding him in the last couple draft years has done, you have to believe that Makar is going to be every bit as good as analysts predict.

Certainly his numbers continue to improve every year, even as the compete level as increased at the same time. He is the model of “today’s” NHL defenseman. I expect good things from this young man. The increase in quality of players coming into the NHL the last few years is incredibly impressive. Nylander for Makar is a trade that works for both teams. Before Timmins got his bell ring, I would have agreed with you on Timmins as good choice as well.

Leafs- nylander, zaitsev and '19
2nd round pick
St. Louis- petreingelo and Carl Gunnarson

Leafs get a top rh dman they need. Petro has 2 years left on his deal and would be a great fit for the leafs as a good two way d man who is in his prime, brings leadership and is affordable for this year and next. They also take on gunnersons contract to evennout the salary but will be off the books after the season. St. Louis gets young top winger who can put the puck in the net and a dman to fill the void as their 2nd pair dman, if St. Louis is going to start a retool I think this could be a good return of young assets for petro as well as they get to keep Parayko who is young enough to fit their rebuild. I realize that Dubas told nylander he wouldn't be traded but with I don't see how with nylander a contract they can afford marner and Matthews, this gets them some extra cap space for next year

Who adds or is it close?


1.) 10 Dec 2018 01:29:25
Toronto would still need to add to compensate the Blues for taking Zaitsev's contract. Nylander + would be closer and the Leafs hang on to Zaitsev instead of adding extra to get rid of him.

2.) 10 Dec 2018 02:01:45
i'd do it, seems about even. maybe change the 2nd to a 1st.

3.) 10 Dec 2018 03:02:48
Nylander liljgren zaitsev 1st


4.) 10 Dec 2018 09:41:26
Toronto adds and no.

5.) 10 Dec 2018 15:08:14
No chance leafs add Liljgren unless Kyrou or Thomas come back.



28 Nov 2018 03:47:07
Leafs trade- nylander and borgman or Rosen
Jackets- Panarin, Murray and conditional 1st

Leafs get a ufa left winger, young defensive d man who in my opinion plays a Brent seabrook style that will compliment Rielly we'll. Also a conditional 1st if Panarin doesn't resign with leafs. Panarin wants to play in a big market with modelling opportunity for his wife which TO can provide and if he doesn't want to stay leafs get the pick

Columbus gets a very good young winger to replace Panarin as it doesn't look like he'll want to resign with them and a depth defenceman.


1.) 28 Nov 2018 12:32:56
Why you call panarin a ufa? he's signed as of now, nylander is a rfa and you left that part out. Would much rather have panarin for 10 than nylander for 8 next year but Toronto can't afford either. Toronto going to have to take a lesser defenseman cause no ones giving close to equal in when everyone knows the situation. Nylander has a 60point season playing with Mathews, no one is paying close to what he's asking little alone give up great assets to get him. Might get a justin Faulk straight across.

2.) 28 Nov 2018 18:04:25
He’s going to be a ufa, it gives the leafs even more scoring depth for the playoff push and they can let him walk after the season because they won’t be able to afford him and take the pick. Jackets get a similar player whose younger and controable, at least they know they have his rights for the next 4 years so they don’t lose Panarin for nothing and Murray is currently their 4th dman who I think given the chance can take on a larger role than the one he is currently in.



26 Nov 2018 05:06:09
Zona - Strome and perkins
Chi- shmaltz


Is it just me or did zona get absolutely fleeced!


1.) 26 Nov 2018 05:32:27
It’s supposed to be perlini not perkins. my bad. auto correct.

2.) 26 Nov 2018 06:09:16
Ya guess coyotes want more immeadiate help at center but wow the fact perlini also included really good for coyotes if potential is reached.

3.) 26 Nov 2018 10:42:35
So bad for coyotes.

4.) 26 Nov 2018 10:43:24
Imo strome will be the best player of the trade.

5.) 26 Nov 2018 10:44:02
I really don't know how to feel about this as a chicago fan. I really like schmaltz game, and he got 52 points last year. i thought he'd be a future core piece once the likes of toews, seabrook, keith, etc got traded or retired. but I really like that they got perlini and strome. with all 3 players still being young (21-23) and former 1st round picks this could go either way. it was a steep price for arizona but who knows, schmaltz could explode into the scene and become an elite player for arizona and perlini and/ or strome could become busts. you never know when it comes to these young players. as a chicago fan i'm hoping for the best for these players to excel in chicago.

6.) 26 Nov 2018 14:26:05
They’re all still young, but based on stromes potential alone I’d say Strome alone was worth more than shmaltz and a pick but to throw in perlini is crazy! Both those guys if given a chance to play with other skilled players could put up much better numbers. Shmaltz and perlini at this point already put up similar numbers albeit they play different positions but still. I don’t know how chayka thought this would be a good trade.

7.) 26 Nov 2018 15:14:06
I really can’t see Strome becoming more then a 3rd liner same with Perlini as of now Yotes get the best player. It’s a strong opinion but as of now I’ll take Schalmltz I’m on the Coyotes side here.

8.) 26 Nov 2018 15:35:51
Erie Otters put up a good tweet too saying “Strome had some good seasons playing with Debrincat on his wing, just sayin’“ lol I don’t really subscribe to reconnecting guys from junior and expecting it to work because the competition and Defense they face is so different, but at this price, it can’t hurt to try.

9.) 26 Nov 2018 16:01:19
This is the best move stan bowman has made in a long long time. Might be actually good enough to save his job. strome with actual playing time with say Kane or debrincat should flourish. But I mean even perlini could be the best player in this deal in a couple years. schmaltz had a real good season last year hasn't looked as good this year but could still turn it around in Arizona being more of a go to guy. Its just the edge goes to the hawks cause they get two guys back who can potentially just as good or better then schmaltz has been this year. Sort of like the pacioretty deal for montreal if tatar scores 17 or more goals for the habs it's a win no matter what patches does caused 17 goals replaces what he did last year plus we got suzuki and a 2nd as an added bonus/ back up plan.

10.) 26 Nov 2018 16:05:57
Oops i meant to say good for Chicago not coyotes but we’ll see who comes out on top soon enough.

11.) 26 Nov 2018 17:06:43
I had to read this trade a couple times on different sites, I wasnt sure if it was an error or not . I think Chicago made out like bandits on this.
Feel bad for the guy leaving Chicago. seems like when you go to Arizona, it's just to play and get paid . , but don't plan on playing past early April.

12.) 26 Nov 2018 20:21:46
Looks like a the start of more trades to come from Chicago. Removed Smaltz to eliminate the only big contract signing for next year. More bodies added that can be moved down to Rockford if necessary while juggling lineup. Next 2 or 3 defenseman being moved for draft pick's or forward's. Then with extra bodies on forward, make a move for top 4 defensive defenseman.

13.) 26 Nov 2018 20:27:37
Looks like the start of more trades to come for chicago.

14.) 27 Nov 2018 02:29:30
Still too early to tell. Schmaltz looking like the best player so far.


Don’t feel bad for Schmaltz. It’s not like Chicago is doing anything either. Both teams going to be bottom feeders for a while still is my guess.

15.) 27 Nov 2018 04:30:36
Yes, time will tell but smaltz is the best player at the moment but if strome can figure out his game, might be good for Chicago, at this point strome is looking like a bust.

16.) 27 Nov 2018 05:56:15
Ya but LeafsGM., at least Hawks have some pride., and history. Coyotes are a joke. Only thing that was good about em is they were the Jets. . now that isn't even good. The new version is better.

17.) 27 Nov 2018 06:50:32
I thought the old version of Jets with Hawerchuck, Selanne, Tkachuk, Housley, Zhamnov, Steen was pretty good too. Lol.

From what I've heard Dougie Hamilton would rather go to museums and site see rather than join teamates at clubs and such. Based on his past being labelled a party animal and being traded for it I don't blame him for wanting to change his ways. But even still now he's considered "not a team player" which I don't understand. Anyways in saying all that if it is indeed true I'm curious to know if Edmonton should consider trailing RNH for Hamilton straight up... what are your thoughts Oiler fans


1.) 06 Jan 2019 18:48:55
I thought that he was always into that kind of stuff and it didn’t go over well in Calgary. I never heard of him being a party animal.

2.) 06 Jan 2019 19:52:38
I think we was a party guy in boston.

3.) 06 Jan 2019 21:00:32
Nuge always puts up decent numbers if it weren’t for injuries but this season is a bit of a breakout season for him I think. He’s too valuable to the Oilers to make that trade. Especially since Hamilton is having a bad season. If it was possible to get Hamilton for less than I’d be all for it. Chiarelli is more interested in overpaying for number 6-7 D though.

4.) 06 Jan 2019 23:45:42
But at what point do the oilers management decide that this “core” isn’t working? Something needs to be done and trading mcdavid or draisatl wouldn’t be smart. nuge would bring back a good return specifically to a team like hurricanes that lack scoring and have a surplus of defence. Oilers were looking for a puck moving right hand shot dman, Hamilton makes less than nuge and fills a more important slot than 3rd line center.

If I was the oilers I’d try to trade nuge and a 2nd or 3rd for Hamilton and gautier. Gautier could be a good scoring winger beside mcdavid. Next year Yamamoto should be around and that gives them 2 scoring wingers. I don’t know. I’m not even a oilers fan but it pisses me off that after all this time and high draft picks they are still trash, i don’t know how management puts up with icing damn near the same rubbish each year and expecting different results year after year. They say when something’s working you don’t fix it but this teams been broke for the last decade and nothing seems to be done. waste of mcdavid.

5.) 06 Jan 2019 23:59:45
You sure you’re not thinking of Seguin being the party guy in Boston? Never heard that about Hamilton.

6.) 07 Jan 2019 00:49:51
I don’t think they should trade Hopkins either. Not that their defense is any good but they are 25th in the league in goals for. I don’t know how they fix this mess but bringing in guys like Rieder, Rattie, etc. and thinking they’re going to be top 6 players is a joke. I guess they hope Bouchard becomes a stud and Lucic retires. I would send Lucic to the press box and let someone else try to earn a job.

7.) 07 Jan 2019 01:56:10
It’s not from a lack of making moves Mertle. Nuge has been with the team the longest and he’s like 24. Nuge isn’t a 3rd line center though. The Oilers have no depth scoring so they need him. Chia just needs to get an actual decent D instead of wasting assets on #7 D. Bouchard, Jones and Bear coming up should help the Oil D. Think Faulk would come at a cheaper price? Use skinner as a model?

8.) 07 Jan 2019 04:35:49
Hamilton for Nuge is a fair trade I could even see Carolina throwing in a sweetener.

Hamilton And Julian Gauthier for Nuge?

Gauthier was a 1st round pick in 2016 a Scoring winger which is one of Edmonton’s biggest needs.

Edmonton should not be trading 1sts tho.

9.) 07 Jan 2019 21:42:07
I just think that at this point they need to make a big splash, not another minor league swap, not trading for bottom pairing players. Even something drastic like trading Hopkins and this years first, unprotected for pietrengelo/ Parayko and kyrou or something similar to kyrou. They haven’t done anything the last 7 years with nuge so why not try something new. Trading away this years forst tells fan that they’re at least trying to be better. If St. Louis is looking to rebuild then a top 10 pick and a top 6 youngish center is a good start. Paryko/ petro instantly improves their defence and they also get a scoring winger. Again they need to do something that fills needs and tells the fans that losing isn’t acceptable anymore.



09 Jun 2018 01:12:12
Depth move for leafs to bring in some additional depth and playoff moral. May help the young guys try a little harder.

Leafs- 4th round pick conditional 7th and maybe a cap dump
Vegas- chick with her tits on the glass.

Vegas gets pick for the future to help them build on conditional 7th if she gets implants. Leafs get chick who's willing to do what it takes to get the crowd and guys going, may give young guys like nylander more reason to go to the corners and battle... what do ya think....is it enough or too much from the leafs?


1.) 09 Jun 2018 12:14:45
I'd spend a lot of time in the corners maybe a little too much. Plus she wouldn't need implants those puppies looked just fine the way they are.



12 Jan 2018 20:02:33
Hypothetical scenario.. you're building team Canada olympic team for the upcoming Olympics (nhl players are coming)... you can take 13 forwards 7 defence and 3 goalies... who you taking. If you're American who you taking?


1.) 12 Jan 2018 20:20:16
I can't participate, it will make me sad - lol.
Team Canada would be outrageous.

2.) 12 Jan 2018 21:52:07
Is anyone even really interested in the Olympic hockey.? Have to admit, I'm not. Maybe I'll tune in, but not the big event it's been in the past, where my whole life kinda stops and scheduled by the games lol
. Like Turkey said. To sad. lol.

3.) 12 Jan 2018 23:36:40
Im not usually a bitter person but just thinking about the team that Canada could put on the ice. I just made a mess in my pants. hah. Anyways yeah it’s too bad but has there ever been a time where Canada has so many top players in their prime that could be playing. you could say the same thing about the ‘mericans. February will be a sad month for what could have been.

4.) 13 Jan 2018 00:28:08
I've loved k get stop al hockey since I was a kid playing Nintendo and PlayStation. Always picked Canada. Hate that NHLer aren't going. I do love watching almost all winter Olympic sports. Some over my favorite two weeks. I think games with be super early morning hrs like Sochi, so with that and no NHLers the tv ratings for Canada and U. S games will be terrible.
I won't go out of my way to watch or stay up late or get up early for it like Sochi that's for sure.
I think the American team would be the most improved. Fuk sales I'm so sad no NHLers are going.

5.) 13 Jan 2018 02:04:10



6.) 13 Jan 2018 05:38:16
Come on Nylander. At least give credit to who wrote that lineup.

This was Chris johnstons Canadian from Sportsnet lineup
You can google it the read article.

McKinnon McDavid Stamkos
Marchand Crosby Bergeron
Benn toews Schiffle
Hall Tavares Stone
Ex: Seguin Giroux

Keith doughty
Rielly petrangelo
Giordano Hamilton
Ex: Vlasic Subban


No Weber. Getzlaf. Perry. Carter.
Keeping dominant World Cup line of Marchand Crosby Bergeron together.

I would probably have Vlasic Subban and burns in instead of Rielly gio and Hamilton myself.
There's a look and something close to what it could be.

What changes would you make?

9.) 13 Jan 2018 13:17:05
What lol I litterly made that up in my head lol. @yup.

10.) 13 Jan 2018 13:54:36

Rielly Pietrangelo
Giordano Subban
Vlasic Parayko


11.) 13 Jan 2018 16:37:19
Someway I would have Brent Burns in. even If he isn't having a Norris kinda year., but No way he doesn't make my team.

12.) 14 Jan 2018 04:15:10
I'm actually more interested in it now. Let's face facts canada could have put 3 teams in it before and each one could have won it. So even if they had lost you probably weren't actually beating the best canada had to offer. right now I just feel like it's more of an even playing field. i'm actually a little excited for it now I think there's going to be more emotion and physical play then before.



06 Dec 2017 15:51:44
Arizona isn't going to be competitive any time soon and leafs need a upgrade on the back end.

Ari- OEL
Tor- nylander, dermott, kapinen and 2018 1st

Toronto lands a very good 2 way d man who at this point in his career I'm sure would like to play some actual meaningful games. Arizona gets 2 young controllable top 6 forwards one of which can play wing or center, good defense prospect who may be nhl ready next year and a mid to late 1st. Leafs may have to throw in a cap dump plus a puck depending on what Arizona's cap situation is.


1.) 06 Dec 2017 21:02:47
OEL is worth a ton, this might be what it takes to get him, however if this is what it would take, leafs pass.



01 Dec 2017 22:51:19
Based on doughty's recent comments I don't think he'll resign in LA. I do think Toronto would be a good fit for him and I think have the assets for him. Yes they could wait until he becomes a free agent but my guess is 30 other teams are going to be interested. LA does a signs doughty 7 years 10.5/year and trades with Toronto

LA- Doughty

Tor- nylander, dermott, kapenen and this years 1st

With nylander being a part of the package Leafs won't have to worry about giving his big raise and not being able too afford doughy. It's obvious leafs would get a right handed young(ish) top d man, and kings get top 6 winger possibly 2 depending how you value kappinen, s potential top 4-6 d man and a mid- later 1st. Good offer from leafs and for kings it's better than losing him for nothing. Like I said it'd be a sign and trade


1.) 02 Dec 2017 03:07:05
If he's just going to sign there as a UFA after next season, as you say. Then why trade that much for him. If he wants to sign in Toronto he will, and no need to worry about 29 other teams or having to trade for him to show him you want him. He'll damn well know you want him lol.
But, you will have to let one of Marner or Nylander go in the next comin years of Doughty comes to Toronto. Especially for more than PKs $9M which is what he says he's worth and what he wants.
If LAK knows he's not resigning with them they take this deal and run.

2.) 02 Dec 2017 04:41:25
Just for fun, It’s possible to have them all, just need a solid stream of cheap young players coming in like Chicago and Pittsburgh. That’s where Leivo, kapanen, Sosh, dermott etc come in. Theoretically:

Matthews $11, marner $6, nylander $6,
Marleau $6.25, kadri $4.5, hyman $2.25
Brown $2.1,

Rielly $5, Doughty $10.5
Gardiner $4, Zaitsev $4.5

Andersen $5

That’s $67.1 million worth of guys locked up for 1-5 more years after doughty would be available. The cap seems to be going up $2-3mill a year, it’s at 75mill today. Say it’s near $80 mill in 2 years. Gives them 13 mill left with 7 good forwards, a good top 4 D and a great goalie. With a few entry level contracts and a few cheap veterans for bottom pair D (Polak type) and 4th line (dom Moore type) and a cheap veteran back up, it can be done. The bargains this management got on guys like kadri, Rielly, zaitsev and Andersen over the past 2 years allow them flexibility. Also marleaus deal overlaps this by only a single year. Then 6mill more is free for raises or other shopping.

I’m not saying this will happen, it’s a long time till then and things can change. Leaf fans have been lead on by UFAs before lol but people saying it’s impossible isn’t true. For the first time in decades they have a management team that I believe can pull stuff like this off.

Anyway, criticize away lol.

3.) 02 Dec 2017 12:57:21
And @Unbiased, Marleaus up in a year, so 6 million free.

4.) 02 Dec 2017 21:30:08
Isn't this Marleuas first of three years? He has two more years after this one, no?

5.) 02 Dec 2017 23:56:29
I’m a huge doughty fan, I’d like to see him on the leafs I just don’t think he’d choose the be there if he hit the open market. That’s why I suggested the sign and trade. Leafs give up a bunch yes but they also get exactly what they want in doughty. But yeah I guess if he was to sign a contract knowing that he’d be traded to a team he didn’t want to go to he wouldn’t sign. I just wanted to get if the offered package would be acceptable for doughty.

Given Shattenkirks struggles throughout most of the season and how much he’s paid, leafs definatley shouldn’t give Sandin/ Liljegren and a 1st. That’s definatley an overpayment for what shattenkirks brings. He’s a offensive minded d man and that’s really not what he leads need in a d man anyways. There are better options out the for the leafs. Sounds like Dante Fabbro will join the preds after his ncaa season is over and if he can make the preds team straight outta school he’d definatley be a upgrade for the leafs. I’d propose nylander for fabbro and ‘19 1st. That’s give the leafs a young and good right handed d man and another pick and Nashville gets more scoring. Leafs also gain that cap space for next year as well as get nylander outta the eastern conference.

I think it’s close. I’d say Hamilton for nuge are pretty even but I think teriveinen is more established and puts up decent numbers considering the lack of offensive punch Carolina has. JP hasn’t proven yet he will be what he was projected to be so it’s a risk for Carolina. Think iledmonton would have to add a bit.

if Minnesota wants to get rid of parise and get something of actual value they’d have to throw in add something like greenwood or Kunin. Even if they offered parise and Kunin for Jost Colorado still says no way! If it was that easy oilers would have long since traded Lucic.

I don’t think leafs should give up their forst and Sandin to any team for absolutely nothing. GM would probably get fired for something like that. Something Chairelli would do.

My first thought was Makar, I changed it to Timmins based on style of play, but I personally think Makar has a higher ceiling than Timmins. I just don’t think they should trade nylander for a d man like Pesce. Nothing personal towards Pesce cause I do think he’s good but if you could get someone like Makar that sure hasn’t played a nhl game but more than likely will be a much better player than Pesce wouldn’t you rather get the better player. If leafs were to trade nylander for pesce I think they’d be settling on lesser value just to add someone they think is a slight upgrade now rather than get a guy that’ll be a huge upgrade next year and the year after. rant over.
