Toronto: Lilijegreen,Bracco

EDM: Puljujarvi

2 players who hasn't develop has hoped for soo far, but both still has loads of potential. Lilijegreen is younger and a defensemen so his development isn't as worry some as Pul so that's why Toronto only adds a meh prospect. Puljujarvi still has potential to be a 70+ point player but the clock is ticking

Liljgren has about the same value as Puljujarvi at the moment. I would rather keep the right handed defenceman who still has top 4 potential then trade him for a RW that we don’t need and who we will likely play on the fourth line behind Kappy, Nylander, and Marner.

Also Bracco is not just a “meh” prospect. The only reason he wasn’t called up last year is because of the amount of RW depth the leafs had. He is basically a top 6 forward in the NHL already, he just can’t prove it because he won’t get the opportunity.

Bracco a top 6 player in the NHL already? Even if he would of had 100+ point last year in the AHL you cannot guarantee that will translate to the NHL. Atm you can't even say he's a lock at bottom 6 in the NHL bcuz he has not played 1 NHL game.

By the way everyone this is MontrealFinests new account it has been confirmed in the fantasy league so there’s that.

As for trade I wouldn’t do Bracco straight up he’s been getting better every year and was one of the best players in the AHL last year only thing holding him back from making the NHL is being in one of the deepest organizations in the league not to mention he contributes no defence making him impossible to put in a bottom 6 role he has elite hockey sense/ passing vision but a weak shot. I believe he will be a top 6 NHL player someday but as long as the leafs have Marner and Nylander on the RW he will not make the leafs.

Side note (s) - Bracco would be a great fit on the 2nd line RW position in Calgary.

I’d also consider Lilijgren for Puljujarvi but the only thing is the leafs couldn’t give him anytime off the 4th line unless if he was moved to LW or Kappanen is traded. Also that’d be trading from a organizational need for a position the leafs has a surplus of.

Jeremy Bracco is a talented scorer and a good prospect. But currently, that is all he is. There have been plenty of players who were PPG in the AHL but could not transition that to the NHL.
I'm sure that list is in the hundreds.

Also VB, the fact that you said ''he contributes no defence'' is the probably the main reason he isn't in the NHL. AHL is a league where forwards don't really need to back-check.
That's the main reason a player and one of the best AHL defencemen TJ Brennan couldn't crack the NHL. Excellent scorer, horrible defender.

Also, which ones is Finest's new account? None of them have his grammar.

Vbisclules And Bracco isn’t a scorer he’s something like Mitch Marner play wise with the puck. He’s about as good defensively as Nylander better then Semin tho. Also you can’t compare a deffensman who can’t defend to a forward who can’t defend.

@vb
Why not lol? Both failed to get to the NHL because of their defence skills. Lack of them.

And there are hundreds of other examples. You Leaf fans are disappointing. You make it hard to be a Canadian hockey fan.

He’s 21 years old lol and has dominated the AHL level he just hasn’t had the opportunity to play there yet I guarantee he’d make the Flames middle 6.

Liljegren for Puljujarvi is more than fair but i feel like Leafs need Liljegren more than Pully

No thanks from Edm, if And when Paul is traded it should be for a decent roster player to plug in now, or a F prospect of equal projection possibly. Not a D prospect. I like Timothy but the Oilers are ok at D prospects with Broberg, Bouchard, Jones, Bear, Samorukov, Legasson, and Persson. Few more I forgot too. With young Klefbom, Larson and Nurse already playing. As much as I like Timothy I don’t want to trade for him for Pup at this time. I hope Pul plays in Europe. Screw him. Lol.
