Toronto Trades
Niemela (SHL)
1st Round Pick 2024

Vancouver Trades

Thoughts ?


1.) 06 Dec 2022 01:07:21
I think the Canucks would have to add their 2023 1st.

2.) 06 Dec 2022 02:08:50
OMG that’s bad…I’d love to read your file Pinball to get a better understanding of what you’re dealing with. This is probably the most delusional post you’ve ever posted. Wow!

Anaheim Trades

Toronto Trades

*Anaheim retains 50% of Klingberg's Contract.

Leafs sacrifice the future trading NRobertson, but Top Teams make trades like this.
Ducks about ready to fold this season add NRobertson for the future in the big picture.

Thoughts ?


1.) 03 Dec 2022 19:48:58
That's pretty awful for Anaheim if you want them to retain and take Holl on as a dump. Toronto needs to add their 1st minimum to that to have a competitive offer.

2.) 03 Dec 2022 19:51:26
Horrible trade for the Ducks.



02 Dec 2022 12:27:00
Philadelphia Trades
Ellis (LTIR)

Toronto Trades
Muzzin (LTIR)

This is a type of Trade that helps both Teams for different reasons.
Muzzin might play this season, and because of that The Leafs can't go out and add to the cap until they know 100% he isn't playing this season.
Ellis isn't playing this season so he can be buried in LTIR for the rest of this season, if he plays again in the future that's a bonus for Toronto, if not they will keep him in LTIR.
Flyers get rid of Ellis's long term contract and can focus on rebuilding their team.

Thoughts ?


1.) 02 Dec 2022 13:00:22
no point. why wouldn't Philly just keep him for their own use?

2.) 02 Dec 2022 16:14:41
I don’t thing anyone is expecting poor Muzz to play again, sadly.

3.) 02 Dec 2022 17:54:35
The ltir capspace will help the Leafs, so it has to be a good trade.
Why else would he post anything other than something that helps the Leafs.
Now if he added a pick going to the Flyers, that might be reasonable.

4.) 05 Dec 2022 13:00:22
BOTH players are dealing with career-threatening injuries, and are on LTIR.

They're on Robidas Island and left no forwarding address.

This seems like a move for the sake of making a move. Why bother with a transaction of players who likely will never play? Sketchy PR move too.

Minnesota Trades

Toronto Trades
1st Round Pick 2023

*Minnesota retains 50% of remaining Contract(s)

Leafs add both a Top 6 Winger, as well as a Top RHanded shooting Defenceman.

Wild improve getting Kallgren for Goaltending depth plus a 1st Round Pick.

Thoughts ?


1.) 26 Nov 2022 15:32:37
not sure why the wild would make this deal. kerfoot has some value but no more then a third line player, simmonds and holl have no value at all simmonds was on waivers not to long ago and kallgren is a 3rd string goalie with potential but as back up at the nhl level. the first round pick will most likely be a mid/ late first. while the wild in your words give up a top 6 forward and a top 4 dman and on top of that the wild eat 50 % of salary. pretty sure the wild turn this down.

2.) 28 Nov 2022 11:30:06
wild loses out on this big time.



14 Nov 2022 16:30:38
Anaheim Trades

Toronto Trades
Joey Anderson (AHL)
1st Round Pick 2024

*Anaheim retains 3.5 million (50%) of Klingberg's contract.

Thoughts ?


1.) 14 Nov 2022 20:54:21
- leafs have $0 Cap Space…makes it kind of tough to add a 7M player

- at -7 in 15 games Klingberg would blend right in on the leaf blue line

- his NTC is in full effect till Jan. 1st, and then submits a 10-team list for trades.

2.) 15 Nov 2022 02:21:07
Actually maybe you should check your facts chicken foot the leafs have 5.1 million in cap space currently with Muzzin in LTIR.

3.) 15 Nov 2022 16:44:28
You are 100% (sorta) correct VBBBB. GOOD FOR YOU!

Of course, like most Pinball trades, this one ignores what another team might "want" and focuses entirely on what he perceives his team "needs". That's now how deal-making works in the real world.

- Klingberg is a well-known name and would bring back a 1st rounder from someone loading up for a run who thinks they can overcome his defensive deficiencies.

- If you want a team to retain half of a 7M salary you have to give them something for that. (MTL got a 1st for taking on Monahan's full salary, so 3.5M in retention would cost at the leafs a 2nd. Pinball included no such compensation, and even included a further cap-dump in Holl. )

- Holl is useless and the remainder of his 2M salary is nothing more than a cap dump, especially considering he's UFA at the end of the season and is of no use to a rebuilding team like ANA.

- Joey Anderson is, and will remain, a minor league goalie. His inclusion in this deal is meaningless. It's filler.

- Most importantly, Murray is getting ready to return to the lineup, and while it probably won't be long until he returns to the LTIR once again, his Cap Hit returning to the leafs reduces any cap cushion they have to work with.

my angry little friend. The only problem is that they have to allow for salaries coming back into the lineup, such as Matt Murray and others. Furthermore,

4.) 17 Nov 2022 03:03:58
Joey Anderson is a RW not a Goaltender.

5.) 17 Nov 2022 20:02:18
You are 100% correct Pinball?.

Toronto Trades
Hirvonen (SML)
1st Round Pick 2022
2nd Round Pick 2023

Vancouver Trades

Both Toronto and Vancouver basically said respectfully that WNylander and/or JTMiller wouldn't be traded from their respected teams, and I know it probably won't happen, but if both Teams would be willing I believe this would be great trade for both Teams imo, plus it would be the biggest deadline trade in NHL history.

Thoughts ?

2 Trade Proposals for The Leafs.

First Trade.

Buffalo Trades
THall (50% of Contract Retained)

Toronto Trades
1st Round Pick 2021

Second Trade.

Detroit Trades
Bernier (50% of Contract Retained)

Toronto Trades
4th Round Pick 2021

The Leafs wouldn't have to trade Kerfoot or any other player on the current roster besides an injured FAndersen and replacing him with a healthy Bernier and saving 3.5m in Cap keeps Kerfoot on the Team only making them deeper with quality depth.

The Trades for UFAs have been established and this is very similar to what The Islanders and Devils did last night.

Thoughts ?




04 Apr 2021 21:33:42
Devils Trade
Palmieri (50% of Contract Retained)

Toronto Trades
2nd Round Pick 2021

Leafs are just under the cap limit so it works Cap Wise in this trade proposal.

Thoughts ?


1.) 05 Apr 2021 20:11:28
He’s the only guy that can fight his way out of a wet paper bag. Do you want them to get bullied in the playoffs and throw their skirts on? Or would you rather the other team know there are consequences for their actions.

2.) 06 Apr 2021 23:05:24
Agree with Toronto17. one thing Leafs have lacked the past couple of years is gritty hard nosed players. so Pinball, why would you want to trade away one of the grittier in your face types, the league has to offer? He may not score the way he once did. but he's still an important player. Leafs have enough guys to put the puck in the net. need to keep the grit. And. he still can score .

3.) 07 Apr 2021 04:52:15
If this is all Palmeri can get the devils will keep him .



11 Jul 2020 15:34:12
A Proposal that I don't see happening but if it did would either Team be even interested in doing it ?

Edmonton Traded

Toronto Trades

Thoughts ?


1.) 11 Jul 2020 17:54:42
The Oilers would never do this trade.

2.) 11 Jul 2020 19:49:21
One team would take it and run and the other wouldn't give the deal any consideration at all. See if you can put aside your heavy bias for one minute Pinball and figure out which is which.

3.) 11 Jul 2020 22:55:38
replace kap with freddie and a couple firsts and the oil don't hang up immediately.

4.) 12 Jul 2020 01:38:50
Mackinnon at 6.3 million>>>McDavid with the flat cap.

McDavid isn’t a top 5 most valuable player in the NHL anymore imo but mathews certainly isn’t either.

5.) 14 Jul 2020 01:05:15
McDavid for Matthews, Marner, Rielly and a 1st.

6.) 14 Jul 2020 17:10:33
@EP40 I hope that’s a troll.

Pettersson, Boeser, Hughes and Horvat for McDavid.

7.) 17 Jul 2020 03:24:45
Matthews and Reilly is fair value, but the leafs would still have to add Kapanen To get it done.



18 Jul 2019 11:22:48
Leafs sign Marleau for 700k which they can as Carolina bought him out not Toronto.
Marleau slaps out Marner and makes him sign a 8yr Deal at 8.5m a year and everything is solved in Leaf Land.

Thoughts ?


1.) 18 Jul 2019 14:57:10
Someone would probably have to slap him pretty hard to get him to sign that deal.

2.) 18 Jul 2019 16:37:49
pretty sure I had read that the Leafs offered him 8 years x $10 mln already, so yah he's not signing that

He wants to sign a shorter team deal so he can hit paydirt again in 5 years or whatever.

3.) 19 Jul 2019 01:49:38
Get Ariana Grande to get him on the Igor then maybe he’ll sign it.

4.) 20 Jul 2019 19:46:59
I was in a taxi line in Vegas two days ago behind Marluea and his wife. Super nice guy, talked for 6/ 7 minutes. Shook our hands twice. I asked him if he’s going back to SJ, if they want him back or not and he kinda laughed and got an unsure type answer. I asked if Mitchy boy is going to sign soon, if they are watching some of the other RFAs or not and he says he thinks everyone is waiting for Mitch.
Super nice guy, I wish I had of asked if Mathews wanted a 5 year deal to be UFA sooner to go back home to AZ sooner or not. Wish I got his reaction to that. Haha. Super nice guy, he and his wife.

5.) 20 Jul 2019 19:58:58
His wife is a super nice guy? lol.

6.) 20 Jul 2019 20:04:40
I can’t believe you shook his hand, twice. Cool story bro, lol. How’s Lesnar doing?

So no Team wants Sandin and Knies because they are unsigned?
They both will sign whatever NHL Team owns there rights.
Oh by the way Meier is a RFA just like Sandin after this upcoming season.
Just admit you're a Leaf hater because the devaluing of Kerfoot, Sandin and Knies shows that, let me guess no Team wants a 1st Round Pick either?
Again Fiala and Meier are very comparable and what did Minnesota get from The Kings in that Trade?
My proposal offers much more than Minny got.

Reading what you posted you described one player in the proposal from The Leafs, that would be Muzzin and even saying that He is still a good Defenceman as long as he stays healthy.
The other 3 players don't fit over the hill, injury prone, over paid and under achieving at all.
Now if Sandin is exchanged in this proposal I actually could see Arizona being interested, but the Muzzin contract is still a problem unless he truly is done and can be put on LTIR imo.

Completely disagree with you and time will prove me right.

That's only your opinion that it's not enough compensation to clear out Muzzin's Contract.
GMs don't destroy and take complete advantage of other GMs, otherwise they would get blacklisted and no other GM would deal with them, in the end yes it's a business but in a friendly way.
