Detroit Trades
Larkin (50% of Contract Retained)
6th Round Pick 2021

Toronto Trades
Sandin (AHL)
1st Round Pick 2021
2nd Round Pick 2021

This would be a huge Trade if this went down, Leafs going for it all this year adding these 3 players you add experience, more goals from all 4 lines when healthy and more depth on Defense.

The hardest part for Detroit making a trade like this would be trading Larkin, but with a rebuild that they are going through this is a step back but more steps ahead in the big picture.

Thoughts ?

Why would Detroit retain 50% of Larkin? They can get just as good of a package @ 0% retention

If Ryan continues playing how he has then he’ll fetch a 1st most likely @ the deadline to a contender
Biega, 6th = Vesey
Sandin, 2nd, Kerfoot and Engvall for Larkin @ 50% ? I don’t see Detroit taking that at all, that’s brutal for Detroit, also Toronto doesn’t need another C

Ryan will not catch a 1st i'd bet my life on it and the leafs don’t need him or want him I can promise that. Take him out and the retention and I’d do it as a leafs fan.

If Ryan keeps playing the way he has then I have no doubt in my mind he’d get a first at the deadline from a contending team

Detroit shouldn't and wouldn't trade Larkin. If they do, which again, they shouldn't, it shouldn't be for more futures.

That's an okay package from Toronto, but an okay package isn't getting Larkin for sure, espec. at 50% retention.

I’ll call you out when he only gets a 3rd.

02 Mar 2021 17:51:03
@nylander “if he keeps playing the way he has” remember I said that though, so if he finishes with about 30-40pts then I think he’ll fetch a 1st. You can call me out when I’m wrong, it’s just what I think cause he’d add secondary scoring, leadership and he’s on a cheap 1 year deal

02 Mar 2021 18:51:00
My guess is Ryan gets a2nd, or stays with Detroit.

This also reminds me of leaf trades. You won't get larkin at 50% off, since Detroit won't pay for him to play 2 years for someone else. I think larkin starts with nylander, but larkin is more valuable to Detroit as their top centre.

Don't trade sandin and picks for old players. Only trade them for players you can keep a long time. With larkin, you have 3 years to be the best. With sandin and picks, you can keep your window open longer.

A second is reasonable. Idc if he’s on pace for 30 goals he’s still not getting a 1st. Same situation as Thomas Vanek.

02 Mar 2021 22:29:52
Ryan is definitely getting a 3rd at minimum, maybe a 2nd if lots of teams in.

If bidding gets competitive, I could see a conditional late 1st as a condition ( Team reaches cup final)

This would still be a 1st that mimics a high 2nd.

Honestly we probably get the 3rd with a chance of a 2nd but just saying if bidding is high, things could get crazy.

Not saying they will but you never know.

02 Mar 2021 22:30:52
Also Larkin could garner that package alone with no retention.

So not even touching that deal.

03 Mar 2021 13:28:48
The deal itself is terrible for the Wings. As for Ryan, I have a really hard time believing him getting more than a 2nd, and would most likely be a late 2nd because the only teams adding a guy like him are playoff bound.
