Is there a trade with Toronto now?

Recommended Posts

Is there a center or any forward we could trade for? Don't know the makeup of the Leafs too well. Figure they will have to have cap problems soon.

What about something around Severson for Kadri? Didn’t he take some bad penalties in their series with Boston? He might be the one they look to move. I’ve always liked him and he’d be a great 2C to keep Zajac on the 3rd line and Hischier in the 1st. Zacha or McLeod could be tradeable then too.

He's on a sweetheart deal and Kyle Dubas won't trade a guy because he took three dumb penalties.

Yeah but now they have Tavares, Matthews, Nylander, and Kadri down the middle and a need for defense.

Nylander plays wing.

I always thought their plan was to put him in the middle eventually.

Wonder if TOR would be willing to trade some good young players for EK and go all in for the Cup this year?

It's been talked about on and off since it's his natural position pre-NHL and they've tried him there from time to time, but just about everyone (including Babcock) prefers him with Matthews since they're deadly together.  And Nylander probably prefers it too, considering he'd get lesser linemates/play elsewhere.

I might just bail on the NHL for a year if this took place.

They have made trades before, but unless Toronto offers something insane (Marner and Nylander) or Melnyk wants to spite his fan base even more, there’s no way Ottawa hands Toronto a Cup.

They can't afford JT, Matthews, Nylander and Marner. I'd go for Marner personally. It'll take alot. They need Defense bad.

 

Um...we need defense bad.

The Maple Leafs have 13.6 million in cap space they are fine,  If they do have cap problems they will just trade Nathan Horton contract away

It still wouldn't mean they would win anything.... Look at how many times some of the best teams bomb out in the playoffs.

Yes we do. I didn't say anything regarding our defense.

Wasn't the implication that we'd give up assets for a forward? Possibly a d-man?

Maybe Shero could work some magic? Without moving something to significant. Personally, Vat and Butcher are the only 2 defensemen I wouldn't move.
