    Also real popular in the room. I remember hearing Marner say that Brown's (said Brownie like every hockey player nicknames teammates with the ie or y at the end) was the hang out spot for the young Leafs.

    He got traded because he just couldn't find a groove with any of the lines. He bounced around and nothing stuck. Nice guy but a middling player at best

    Brown cow. He's a good guy. Purely as a defensive forward I wouldn't mind him back. I know his scoring touch is crap, even though he scored a nice goal against Leafs last game.

    If he comes for practically free I don't mind, but I feel the Sens will hang onto him. People don't mention a lot but he seems like a big part of that team (imo)

    I remember when Babcock wanted to spark the Matthews line, Babcock would replace Nylander with Brown and create the Hyman-Matthews-Brown line. How about trying Marner out for once? Fun times.

    He was traded because he was too expensive at 2M and now he's more expensive. Doesn't make sense

    We just traded away 2 of our 3 million dollar 3rd liners and will probably be trying to dump Kerfoot in the off-season. We can't afford him.

    Leafs fan propose. Leafs fan(s) tell Ottawa he has no chance of coming back. Leafs thread. I like Brown. He's worth more here simply because he brings some veteran leadership. I wouldn't trade him for peanuts which is what is being offered. /thread

    Love Brown, hard worker and brings a lot of good qualities but his salary is tough to fit in and bottom six RW's aren't really a strong need. Need a more legit top 6 LW option.

    Very happy with him in Ottawa. He was the sweetener for us to get rid of the worst D man in hockey in exchange for Zaitsev who has been a rare bright light beyond Chabot on the back end this year. What a trade that was.

    Peanuts are not being offered. Nothing is being offered. There is no fit on the Leafs for him. He's not the type of player Toronto needs.

    He had too many guys ahead of him in the lineup which is why he was traded in the first place. I love the guy and his work ethic but there's no spot for him here.

    Sure but he's not getting 18/20 mins a night in Toronto like he's in Ottawa or most teams for that matter.

    As a sens fan, I've never understood why you gave us Brown in that trade. He's been great for us. I know our standards aren't the highest but you could have got more for him i think.

    He's more of a "one time" 20 goal scorer and that was back in 2016-17. Alex Galchenyuk scored 30 in 2015-16 and we got him for nothing.

    I think the "poisoned pill" in that trade was taking Zaitsev, though he's not that bad if you don't have any cap issues.

    I’m aware. I’m referring to how some posts claimed Conner Brown was so valuable back then, but now that season was cause he’s was riding shotgun to Matthews
