ANA gets Connor Brown
TOR gets Rights to Nick Ritchie
Does anaheim want Nylander
Might be worth the gamble of Ritchie improving, but otherwise leafs don't do this.
I'd rather wait it out.
Brown is a 20 goals scorer....what's Ritchie again?
Easy yes for the Leafs (depending on Ritchies contract demands of course).
No we need LW more than RW
Yeah I would do it
Johnsson? Btw Brown can play LW as well
Risk reward scenario.
Brown is better now Ritchie might be better in the future. Personally I'd do as a leafs fan.
I'd do this.
Anaheim is not trading Ritchie or Manson
Manson I understand, but why is Ritchie untradable?
Not trying to troll, but genuinely asking. Especially with the Contract situation as well.
Most duck fans had a wait and see approach for another year with Ritchie. He is absolutely tradeable now. Wouldn't miss his untimely and stupid penalties.
With our roster on opening night it was noticeable the extra speed, hustle, and effort. No physical threats but getzlaf and manson. Maybe a new identity where we aren't the top penalty minute leaders. No bieksa beauchemin perry kesler ritchie and young hungry kids that back check, it didnt look like the ducks much at all.
Yeah I noticed that too. They looked like a different team than years past. Personally, I think this is the approach the Ducks should've taken a couple years back.
I think you guys were too hell-bent on replicating the 2007 cup run. Time's have changed now and Ducks may have finally caught up
He's not untradeable. Dirk is just obsessed with grit.
I'd do the deal but I wouldn't be jumping for joy either.
Does anyone know what type of contract Ritchie is looking for ?
Maybe between 2.75 - 3.0 AAV
I'd trade Brown for Ritchie's potential if they cost the same, but if Ritchie happens to pull down $3M+ he's probably priced out of what Toronto can afford for a support player of that caliber
If he's looking for that much it would be no wonder he's not signed. A short term deal around 1.5M seems like plenty coming off an ELC with his production. A bit more than Virtanen at 1.25M x 2 years
tough call. I don't think Ritchie does much better than Browns rookie production (20g/36pts) but he has the size the leafs need.
Not Downtown Connor Brown!
A more physical player who had one point less than Brown last year, I suppose.
A 22 year old 30 point 200 hit power forward with alot of room for growth still
