Elliott Friedman has confirmed he’s heard that the Maple Leafs have an offer on the table to Nashville for Filip Forsberg. Interested to know what that would look like.

A futures package including Nick Robertson would make some sense for Nashville, but you would have to assume Leafs need salary going out and Nylander my be included.

Would Nashville take it as a win to get Nylander who is 2 years younger and signed long term at $6.9M instead of having to negotiate with Forsberg who currently makes $6m for 1 more season? Gives them some cost certainty

Forsberg for Nylander

Or Forsberg for Kerfoot, Robertson, a 2nd round b.

I can assure you Nylander absolutely will not move. Again the leafs are in 1st they won’t trade one of there best players on a cheap contract. A futures based package makes sense.

23 Feb 2021 15:46:23
The problem with Nylander not being involved is the cap. They may be able to sneak through this year based on cap space picked up with injuries and stuff but then this offseason would be a disaster because Forsberg a deal isn’t expiring. It’s another season at $6M.

Andersen not signed, Hyman not signed, Dermott not signed, Bogosian not signed, Simmonds, Thornton, Spezza not signed if they were coming back and already over or right at the cap.

I would prefer they find a way to add a top 6 without subtracting obviously, but it’s not that simple.

23 Feb 2021 15:49:15
Kerfoot at $3.5M makes some sense to go because he’s one of the only guys in that price range in the bottom half of the line up. Everyone else is pretty much $1.5 or under. I just think that hurts balance too. It’ll be interesting to see but I’m happy that Dubas is shopping for difference makers. We need to push chips all in soon.

23 Feb 2021 16:50:13
I’d say the trade would be 1st kerfoot Liljegren you look at what the leafs paid for Muzzin who had the same term leafs could make it work but I think they would have to do some work on the cap.

23 Feb 2021 18:08:13
Hockeyfan: that’s probably fair. A mix of current and future. And the difference in cap between Forsberg and Kerfoot is only $2.5M. They should be able to find a way. But I think Preds would want the prospect to be better than Liljegren. I assume Sandin or Robertson.

23 Feb 2021 18:11:33
I don’t think it hurts the balance at all including Kerfoot. Thornton should be 3C. Hyman has earned a spot in the top 6 and makes the young studs better. I agree with Hockeyfan on the trade value. Maybe even another piece from the leafs.
Matthews/ Marner/ Hyman
Tavares/ Nylander/ Forsberg
Many options to fill out the bottom 6. Thornton and Simmonds should have bottom 6 roles with PP time.

Nashville F Forsberg

Toronto W Nylander

T Lilgeren.

Where’s this from weasle?

23 Feb 2021 19:30:13
Toronto17 that makes sense. Would be a tough lineup to match up front and for once the back end looks good on most nights too. I’m interested to see how it plays out.

And weasle, where is that from?

23 Feb 2021 19:35:57
Elliott Friedman reported a Blockbuster trade in the works around 1pm, trying to find the post but I think it's been taken down.

23 Feb 2021 19:38:09
Idk where you’re getting this information from but I can’t find it anywhere Nylander definitely won’t be moved.

23 Feb 2021 20:51:55
If the URL does not show up, go to Nhltraderumours. me

3rd story down.

23 Feb 2021 20:53:20
If that is the offer, then I hope it doesn't go down. Not enough of an upgrade from Nylander to Forsberg to trade both Dermott and liljgren.

24 Feb 2021 05:27:06
Lol people will look at anything and use it as a source the lack of intelligence some people have hurts my head.

23 Feb 2021 21:43:10
E Friedman reported the offer was on Nashville's table.

24 Feb 2021 11:34:19
He didn’t report THAT offer was on the table. That report you’re using on that website is ShockJoxk Dean Blundells friend, Shug. He’s hired to create clock bait for Deans website. He is the guy last year reported it was all but done that Leafs traded Nylander last year for Parayko and an announcement was imminent. Also he wrote that Piietrangelo was in agreement here. He got it right that Leafs were hiring Babcock 7 years ago and then since then he’s like 0-40 on his reports from “inside sources” within the organization

That’s an entertainment website, but I wouldn’t bet 10c on their info.

24 Feb 2021 15:03:28
Eliott Friedman didn’t report a thing get your facts straight.

24 Feb 2021 18:57:00
Friedman said there was an offer from the leafs to Nashville for Forsberg. Didn’t get into what the offer was or even hint that he knew what the offer was. Just that he heard there had been one.
