Devils Trade
Ty Smith
3rd Round Pick 2022

Leafs Trade

New Jersey I believe will be the most improved Team this upcoming season and adding Rielly and Dermott and will only make them that much better.

Leafs are in that position of having Rielly for probably just this season or look to the future and get much needed Cap Space, I believe this is a move that helps in the big picture.

Thoughts ?

NJ has the cap space to resign Reilly. Hamilton and Reilly should make a strong pairing.

It would depend on how both teams value Smith and if the Devils want to spend a big chunk of their cap on extending Reilly. They might have plans to spend that cap space elsewhere.

The tough part will be Toronto probably only does it if they view Smith as a top 4 but NJ might not do it if they do too.

From what I know Devils are pretty high on keeping Smith. So I doubt they would move him especially for Reilly with no extension in place.

If they have Reilly guaranteed to be extended, then there is room to negotiate a deal here for sure.

Also like MoxNix said, it depends on how each team sees Smith on whether they consider the deal.
