Don't think WPG would need to pay that much, tbh.
A 2nd or one of the prospects would probably already do it, since it saves TB 5m in cap space.

Murray could probably be had for a 2020 2nd rounder. Rasmussen would not be included if a prospect had to be thrown in.

Agree2 Disagree3

06 Apr 2020 19:30:13

Murray is worth more than a 2nd wtf are you smoking?

Agree3 Disagree2

06 Apr 2020 19:49:45
I wouldn't be so quick to trade Murray if I were the Pens. he's only what mid 20's. he's won. Jarry is doing really good. sure. but I'm not sold . not everyone is going to turn into a Binnington.
Murray has struggled, but I don't see this being like a Jim Carey ( not not the comedian young guys) or Andrew Raycroft type of thing. he will get it back. maybe won't be a Vezina guy, but a solid starter for years to come.

The Yotes say no.

Agree4 Disagree11

05 Apr 2020 15:56:46
The Yotes would probably give their whole roster for Mathews. Probably relocating soon doubt they stay in Arizona much longer so doubt Mathews waives also. A small winger the leafs don’t need already have Johnsson, Nylander and Marner, a 4th dman and 1st for the leafs franchise player? McDavid gets moved before Mathews.

Agree2 Disagree8

05 Apr 2020 16:32:16
Hard for Flyers and Calgary to turn down lol depends on cap but jeez!

Agree5 Disagree1

05 Apr 2020 21:51:38
Arizona could not afford Matthews. Also, he would not have to supporting players he has now.

Agree2 Disagree4

06 Apr 2020 19:52:09
Mathews won't get traded. at least not till maybe the last year of his deal., depending where Leafs are at that point, may be able to get the biggest haul ever at a trade deadline rental possibility.? He will be what? 26 or so?

Agree1 Disagree1

07 Apr 2020 17:56:41
No from Leafs but not a terrible offer, they’re not moving AM34 lol.
No from Flyers, too much for Gaudreau, Frost and Farabee are going to be a studs and Sanheim is a super underrated Dman.
3rd deal isn’t bad but I don’t think EDM would move Nurse for a winger at this point.

Take out Vilardi and Kempe.

04 Apr 2020 23:54:25
Lmfao this is terrible for Toronto.

Agree8 Disagree5

05 Apr 2020 06:46:09
I’m going to say this only once. Matthews gets Doughty straight across. But Mikheyev does not get Vilardi and Kempe. I think Matthews get Doughty due to
• Age
• Position
• Points
• Popularity

So Matthews for Doughty straight across is a more even trade than throwing in Kempe and Vilardi for a no name

Agree7 Disagree5

05 Apr 2020 15:58:21
Mathews is like 15 years younger then Doughty. How many years does Doughty have before he retires 1? Maybe 2? He isn’t worth his contract.

Agree3 Disagree7

05 Apr 2020 16:34:46

I know you’re butthurt ‘cause your little golden boy isn’t being referred to as a God and the greatest player in the league, but Doughty is 30 and has a lot more than “1 or 2” years before he retires. Stop being so salty and posting stupid rubbish.

Agree7 Disagree2

05 Apr 2020 17:22:49
Doughty has about as many years of being a top D man as Matthews has on his contract before he leaves Toronto.

Agree7 Disagree0

05 Apr 2020 19:51:56
Mathews is considered a god within Toronto soon statues of prayer will be built of him around the city in Toronto he is a top 5 most powerful person in Canada he has more followers then Christianity in the city of Toronto. He will not be moved/ leave. Exaggeration sure but the reality is God won’t be moved for Doughty.

Agree1 Disagree6

05 Apr 2020 21:33:14
Lmfao Auston has 47 goals and is 22,gimme a break that Doughty’s more, or equally valuable compared to him. Doughty isn’t or Hedman or Josi, so no dice.

Agree2 Disagree4

06 Apr 2020 04:13:51
TSS if you were offered Josi or Hedman for Matthews, you take it

Agree3 Disagree2

06 Apr 2020 06:38:19
Josi and Hedman are LH d the leafs need a right shot personally the only LHD I’d consider moving Mathews for is Dahlin.

Agree0 Disagree2

06 Apr 2020 14:28:41
Thats exactly what i'm saying, i'd take Josi or Hedman for Matthews no question. Doughty isn’t in that realm anymore. Doughty’s old, with a huge contract that pays him while he declines, all while having mediocre raw stats and mediocre advanced stats. that's why there's no point in trading Matthews for him.

This is the same as something like Tavares for Dahlin, frankly, although Matthews has proven more than Dahlin in their time in the NHL but tye premise is about the same. As a Leaf fan, I’d doubt Buffalo trades Dahlin for Tavares, who is likely going to decline while on a hefty 11M contract. From Buffalo, I’d only consider guys of similar age, and that would only be someone like Matthews on Toronto; hence, it would have to be an overpay to get Dahlin, similarly to how it should be an overpay to get Matthews. An aging Doughty as the is a nodice.

Agree1 Disagree1

06 Apr 2020 19:57:28
As much as I dislike Mathews, I have to agree he is worth more than Doughty. I've never though Doughty was all that. 🤷‍♂️.

I don't believe neither team would want to trade their best center at this time.

Not even close. MacKinnon>>>Matthews.

MacKinnon > Matthews by a long shot

05 Apr 2020 16:00:17
The gap between Mackinnon and Mathews is not huge both are franchise players obviously at this time Mackinnon is better but when Mackinnon was Mathews age he was pretty meh.

Kerfoot plus small add ie; draft picks

Believable1 Unbelievable13

02 Apr 2020 16:03:35
I would like to see the Jets make this trade. As much as I like Copp the Jets have him and Lowry playing the same type of game so they can take a chance on a soft defensively weak and mistake pron player like Kerfoot. Hopefully Kerfoot could learn how to play a more physical and intense game when playing for a coach like Maurice and with true leaders who play a complete game like Wheeler, Scheifele and Connor. I know posters on both sides may not agree with me but that's the fun of this site.

Agree2 Disagree7

02 Apr 2020 16:10:59
No from Winnipeg. Kerfoot costs too much and doesn't fill any need for the Jets.

Agree6 Disagree3

02 Apr 2020 16:43:02
I wouldn't agree with you there Islandjet. Copp and Lowry are two thirds of one of the top shut down lines in the league. Kerfoot is a not good at anything player, that is overpaid for another 3 years and has an NTC in his last year. He could be had for a lot less than a good player if you want to take a shot at him. I would think a 4th or C/ D prospect is enough for Kerfoot. If not, oh well, I guess we miss out.

Agree2 Disagree5

02 Apr 2020 17:59:36
a 4th for Kerfoot? Good jesus, lmfao.

Agree5 Disagree0

02 Apr 2020 18:05:07
Before Leaf fans freak out, I'm not saying Kerfoot is a bad player. He's "okay" at lots of things, just not "good" at any.

Agree2 Disagree2

02 Apr 2020 18:35:54
Kerfoot is a decent 3rd line center, he's good for about 40 points a year, and I think comparably to other 3C's out there he's not overpaid.

But even if Kerfoot is on the trade block he's not a fit on the Winnipeg Jets. Their bottom 6 already has good line chemistry. I don't follow their team enough to know but I thought they are more so in in the market for a top 6 Center or top 4 RHD?

Agree2 Disagree1

02 Apr 2020 19:11:17
That would be correct LilTuzziBert.

Agree1 Disagree1

03 Apr 2020 01:51:51
You can tell mebiasedjoe and islandjerk don't know much about hockey or they would know Kerfoot is actually a pretty good defensive player. I don't watch much Leafs games, but I know how to read a stats sheet, and the numbers reveal a very different story than what you guys are saying.

Kerfoot this year has >50% d-zone starts, 52.1 cf%, xgf 34.5 vs xga 31.64. those are good, not great, defensive stats.

By comparison Copp has 51.79 cf%, xgf 29.46 vs xga 34.58. and Lowry has 46.35 cf%, xgf 16.42 vs xga 23.7.

So not only did Kerfoot had the highest cf% he was also the only one that had a positive difference xgf-xga. So not only is Kerfoot a decent defensive player, he's actually a better one than either Lowry or Copp.

Agree1 Disagree1

03 Apr 2020 07:33:25
Kerfoot while not physical is not defensively weak advanced stats show he is one of the leafs/ Colorado’s defensive contributors. Arguably defensive positioning is one of his top traits.

Agree2 Disagree0

03 Apr 2020 14:11:50
So, it seems like Kerfoot is doing well with the Leafs Vbbb and is playing as would be expected. Why are so many Leaf fans, not necessarily you, trying to dump him? Why not just hang onto him? It seems to me that would be the better course of action.

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Apr 2020 22:34:11
Probably because they need a to shed abit of cap and add a physical presence.

First post after a few months away from here and it’s an absolute classic. The biased comments do not disappoint. Thank you.

02 Apr 2020 14:44:20
Since there's no hockey I thought it would be fun to discuss what the Maple Leafs could/would do with the cap space they'll have this summer. If the cap increases, the Leafs will likely have over $20 million in available cap space.

The team has 3 RFA's to resign: Denis Malgin, Frederik Gauthier and Travis Dermott

They also have team needs that will have to be addressed this summer, right handed defense is what has been and still is lacking for the team, as well as depth players with physicality and grit. Barrie likely won't re-sign and Ceci doesn't look like he's in the teams future plans.

So.. what do you think it will cost to resign their RFAs and what do you think they'll do with the remaining cap space they'll have?

My suggestion:

Gauthier signs for 1 year at $875k
Malgin signs for 1 year at $875k
Dermott signs for 3 years $11.25m ($3.75m aav)
Re-sign Clifford at $1.6 million for 1 year

I hope they'll swing for Pietrangelo in free agency and try to take a stab at getting him for 5 years $45m ($9m aav).

If they've proven anything, they know how to structure a contract with signing bonuses being 99% of the salary and a base salary of the league minimum.

If Pietrangelo somehow resigns with St. Louis, who else could you see the team going after and for how much?

Believable2 Unbelievable1

02 Apr 2020 15:26:37
Honestly I think you’re overpaying all 3 RFA’s, Gauthier and Malgin should sign for league minimum and Dermott should not be signed for over 2 mill aav on a one or two year bridge deal.

They can’t afford Pietrangelo unless they trade all of Kerfoot, Kapanen, and Johnsson or the cap somehow still goes up after this year.

Agree2 Disagree2

03 Apr 2020 01:20:47
According to capfriendly Toronto has 77 million tied up in 16 players plus Kessel. If cap goes to 84 they only have 7 million to spend. If it stays flat they only have 4.

Where are you getting this 20 mill cap space number from?

Agree1 Disagree0

03 Apr 2020 07:37:56
What about Ilya Mikeiev sorry about the spelling but the LW who plays with Nylander and Tavares since Hyman was bumped down to the 3rd he’s a RFA and should command 3 + mil. Also the leafs aren’t getting that much cap Horton and Clarckson currently don’t count towards the cap.

Agree0 Disagree1

03 Apr 2020 11:25:59
Sorry about that, $20 million coming off the cap in UFA's but Toronto's cap hit for 2020-21 is 76,908,533 so far. That leaves them with 4,591,467 available cap space. If the cap goes up to $84m they'll have 7,091,467 of available cap space.

That will be gone once the RFA's are resigned.

Agree1 Disagree1

04 Apr 2020 12:54:32
Up to date rumors have the leafs going after alex P hard . This is why there were no big moves at the deadline. There is interest on both sides. This came fro the same source the had Patrick Marleau going to pens and leafs getting Clifford as predicted so don't be shocked if alex lands a leaf.
