Too much for chicago. They can keep dach and keep those picks. Hes almost a bust at this point for his projection. Like poolparty he's a middle 6 guy. Could regain some if new place though.

Gonna take much better pics to bring in laf. 19th, 35th, and a probably Lucas reichel. A former 1st rd pick that's had a couple of good showings at the nhl level the last 2 seasons.

Jarred Tinordi - Nikita Zaitsev / Timothy Liljegren

They’re obviously gonna make some free agent signings but holy f**k this Blackhawks team is so bad lmao, also Johansen fell off so hard. But apparently Chicago wants some first round picks and is willing to take on bad contracts that’s why I made these trades.

02 Jun 2023 17:23:11
If Toronto is giving up on liljgren id be happy with the second trade but think still needs a small tinkering. First one i think would be an overpayment by Nashville unless last option to get out of hiss contract. fun to see chicago have 2 1st round picks from bad goalie signings.

02 Jun 2023 18:36:44
Lol both trades are awful. The leafs will just buyout Murray and call it a day. Johanson also doesn’t have Negative value.

Agree0 Disagree1

02 Jun 2023 19:08:03
Johansen definitely has negative value IMO but Nashville is due for a retool and they’ve already started, keep the 15th pick and a decent veteran. In two seasons he’ll be gone and the 15th pick will be ready, they’d be way farther ahead to do that.

I don’t think the leafs could make this work cap wise. Also acquiring Mathews makes no sense for San Jose.

SJ is deep in a rebuild, and in the process of stripping it down and trading off what they can.

Consider what other teams realistically need in a trade, and not just your leafs, if you're trying to pitch a realistic trade.

If you're only interested in posting absolute nonsense that serves only your team's needs, then just write it on some Cottonelle, wipe and then flush. Then it will have served some kind of purpose.

Agree2 Disagree1

01 Jun 2023 14:43:36
How old are Hertl and EKarlsson compared to Matthews and Liljegren?

In a rebuild don't you trade your older players for younger players and or prospects and draft picks?

The first part of this is a MTL-WAS trade. (I wouldn't do it, but I can follow what you're saying. )

There appears to be a second trade. but it's hard to follow as written. Looks like you're proposing a 3-way trade, but it doesn't seem to make any sense. Maybe you can reply and clarify who is trading what to whom? (The ARI 6th doesn't seem to jibe with the packages MTL & VCR are giving up? )

Arizona Trades
Cooley (Big-10)

Toronto Trades

Would Arizona and Toronto have a true blockbuster like my proposal ?

It's the fun time to be an armchair GM and with all these players involved being possibly moved including Cooley staying in College, and not convinced he ever signs with Arizona would this work for both teams in there situations?

Thoughts ?

Believable3 Unbelievable9

30 May 2023 19:42:58
This does not make Arizona a playoff team so they decline.

Agree1 Disagree2

31 May 2023 10:19:36
- the whole league knows Matthews and Nylander aren’t winners, and both have one year left in their current deal.

- why would ARI trade 4 young building blocks and sacrifice their rebuild for salaries they can’t afford to pay?

Think it through Pinball…the rest of the league doesn’t exist to restock your leafs. You have to propose trades that make sense for both sides. This isn’t close to realistic bud.

🚫Homer Deals.

Agree2 Disagree0

31 May 2023 18:21:22
Matthews to ARI makes sense in terms of it making the franchise more money as a whole. Does it make them a playoff team. I truly don't know. They went 28-40-14 last season relying heavily on Keller. Could Arizona wait another year and take a run at him, absolutely. But for a team trying to create an argument as to why there should be hockey in the desert and increase revenue, adding a top player in the league would definitely help the case. especially one from the state. Like it's been stated on other things a deal would have to be in place or Toronto wouldn't get an ideal return for him. As for the trade itself don't see Arizona parting with any of those pieces except maybe Cooley and that would only be if they think he's not gonna sign with them at all. I think they have some of those big dead contracts coming off the books this season so they'd have the cap to make some moves. Don't think the Leafs package Matthews and Nylander in one deal, probably be two seperate deals.

Whoever trades for Matthews need to have a deal somewhat in place or they’ll treat him like a year long rental, in saying that I don’t think Philly is a fit.

C - Elias Lindholm ( 4.85 @ 1 UFA )
48th Overall Selection in 2023 - CGY

3rd Overall Selection in 2023 - CGY

I don’t think Columbus does it but this is the huge rumour going around flames/jackets twitter. Columbus apparently wants Lindholm and is willing to trade the 3rd overall pick. Carolina wants Lindholm but I just can’t see them giving up anything of interest to the flames. This would hurt the flames a lot, leaving a huge hole but who says yes?

Believable11 Unbelievable13

28 May 2023 15:47:53
Imo, Calgary says yes, but CBJ say no.

They'd be crazy to give up 3OA for 1 year of a 29 YO center.

It's gonna be hard for any team to try and trade into the top 5 this year. I dont see Columbus doing this.

I doubt Columbus would move the 3rd overall for Mathews let alone Lindholm. They aren’t ready to contend.

29 May 2023 13:15:27
Drafting high is the only reward for a painful season.

Teams that go through a season like that are unlikely to trade high picks, especially a team like CLB, who is clearly rebuilding.

Agree2 Disagree1

30 May 2023 03:57:23
CLB committed ton’s of money to Gaudreau and Laine. They had much higher expectations for last year. Lindholm and Gaudreau have a solid history and chemistry together. I think they want to start competing now and would very seriously consider this trade.

Agree0 Disagree2

30 May 2023 04:10:53
Why would they take Lindholm over Mathews+. I’m sure the leafs would be willing to ad a ton to Mathews for that pick. Lindholm a pending UFA even resigned to a long term contract doesn’t even come close to that pick. A comparible player in Horvat returned a late 1st, 2nd round pick equivalent prospect and a cap dump ( not negative value but needed to be sent back to make cap work )

Lindholm for Celumans, Foudy and LAK 1st would be fair in a vacuum but Calgary will resign there top C considering the money they invested in there current core.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 May 2023 14:11:46
Philly: 7th overall, Kevin hayes. Chicago:19th overall,chi 2nd, tb 2nd rd all this year, Dallas 2nd 2025. Thinking is Philly trying to trade hayes for a while and rebuild. Chicago could get michkov because i doubt any teams above will wait a few years for him, but chicago will be right in their upswing and end of hayes contract. Subject to hayes 12 teams but already screwed Chicago once so probably not a fit but an idea.

Edmonton trades McDavid to Toronto for Matthews and the late 1st this year.

McDavid gets to play for his home team that is full of playoff chokers, while Matthews gets to play for a team that is also full of playoff chokers

Anaheim Trades
2nd Overall Pick 2023
60th Overall Pick 2023

Toronto Trades
28th Overall Pick 2023

Anaheim with a ton of Cap Space can make this happen money wise including signing an extension (a sign and trade would have to be in place) to make it work for The Ducks, Matthews is young enough that he would fit with the rebuild.

Leafs are still in a Cap Space issue, trading Matthews helps huge and restocks the team going forward with Cap Space added, McTavish and probably Fantilli will be the next wave of young forwards coming in, I have heard none of the core 4 will be traded but if a proposal like this is in play you would have to consider it for both teams.

Thoughts ?

Believable14 Unbelievable9

26 May 2023 17:36:03
Far too much for Matthews. If he wants to sign in Anaheim and Toronto wants that much, just wait the year and keep the assets, or wait until Toronto's ask is at least reasonable.

No point in gutting the prospect depth you've been building up to get him a year early when he won't make you a contender anyways.

Agree3 Disagree15

26 May 2023 20:52:57
Gutting the prospect pool?
Matthews isn't a 30+ Centre in decline, if anything he is about to hit his prime.
This would be an opportunity for Anaheim to add one of the best Centres in The NHL, don't expect Matthews to be on the market after next season, if it isn't Toronto it will be a team that trades for him before July 1.
Adding him now gives Anaheim 2 extra years as only the team owning his rights can sign him for 8 years, you include next season that's 9 years compared to 7 years as a UFA.
I believe if this proposal is out there both teams would be interested imo.

Agree11 Disagree2

26 May 2023 21:58:37
Sorry Pinball it isn't good for Anaheim. You want two top 3 picks for one year of Matthews. Anaheim tells you to pound sand. He's good, but not that good especially when you factor in his current contract and add his next in there as well.

It's unlikely Matthews signs an 8 year deal imo. He'll sign another short to medium one and try to cash in again.

As I said he doesn't help Anaheim much next year, so if he wants to sign there that bad, they can wait and keep the 2 top 3 assets.

Agree1 Disagree11

27 May 2023 14:47:25
Seems better than usual but Anaheim would easily refuse. McTavish is really good and fantelli may be better than matthews.

Agree1 Disagree10

27 May 2023 16:59:39
If a leafs did something extremely unethical like sign him to a 8 year contract and now he’s off the market teams can no longer sign him he’s a leaf and he wants to be a leaf then they turned around and traded him before his NMC kicks in then this would be fair but that’s not going to happen. He’s worth slightly more then what Erik Karlsson got at the moment. In theory yes you can wait until free agency but then you lose certainty.

Agree0 Disagree3

28 May 2023 22:25:02
That's why I stated a sign and trade, Calgary did that last off season with Tkachuk and Florida.

Agree1 Disagree1

29 May 2023 13:23:45
Memarcus nailed it.

If you're trying to get a great regular season team, Matthews is your guy.

If you're trying to build a winner, get someone with heart.

Last but not least, the other 31 teams do not exist to save the leafs from their own bad asset management. Dubas inherited a sweet hand and played it very poorly. Cue the next rebuild.

30 May 2023 04:13:45
Why would a playoff team rebuild? Teams make money by being competitive and the leafs are. They make more money by getting bounced in round 1 every year then they would not making playoffs. Just a dumb take the leafs wont rebuild just like they won’t move Mathews, Nylander, Marner, Rielly or Tavares.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 May 2023 17:54:59
I seen a few Marner for Panarin rumors floating around, if Panarin or Zibanejad are available how about one of these instead.

NYR : Panarin

OTT : DeBrincat, Thompson, and Formenton


NYR : Zibanejad

OTT : DeBrincat, and a 2nd

Ottawa can replace DeBrincat with a star around the same level or use him to bring Zibanejad home where he belongs, assuming DeBrincat don't want to sign with Ottawa.
