One season of Ceci or 5 years of Zaitsev? Really tough choice for Toronto there...
Brown for Compher + pick/prospect?
Leafs fans don't want him, Ottawa doesn't want to give him up. Why is this a thread?
sure. but there is a thig called a salary cap and thats why the leafs traded brown in the 1st place. He was bouncing between lines 3 and 4 and they wouldnt have been able to give him the 3.6 he wanted
I always liked Brown but he's better off in Ottawa.
Willie wants out
What do you mean willie wants out?
Sure you want C. Brown back, how about C.Brown + L.Brown for Holl+ Liljegren
We have some holes in our line up that Connor Brown does not fill.
So why are we spending assets to upgrade something that doesn't need upgrading?
(love CB though)
Oh boy that would be bad for Toronto
No reunion is necessary. He'd be buried in Toronto, like he was before and put up lackluster production. If they want someone to play 3rd or 4th line minutes that can jump into the top-6 I'd target a guy like Blake Coleman or Barclay Goodrow.
Ottawa doesnt want to get rid of him. What a ridiculous notion.
Definitely not maybe. Obviously they arent trading Brown for those two plugs. They literally just gave away Galchenyuk.
Thats not what happened.
Yah an elite 3rd liner that would mesh into Leafs lineup instantly and is better than most if not all in your bottom six, plus a talented center prospect that needs a fresh start. For a 4-5 dman that is 29 in age and a D prospect that has potential like Logan Brown but hasn't cracked the lineup for the Leafs
It's pretty even IMO.
In what world is Connor Brown a viable replacement for Nylander? Lmao.
Not to mention, trading a top six winger in Nylander at a loss when the team is still first in the league is such a dumb idea.
Sure... and Ottawa eats 50% of Brown's cap to even make it work cap wise. Then Leafs have no depth on the Right side of the D, and don't actually even have guys to play... somehow having Connor Brown in the Leafs lineup, makes up for having Bogosian as our second pairing RD... and who is on the third pairing? Marincin?
Plus, if the Leafs are adding any depth, they better come with some physicality, and size... I loved Connor Brown, wish him all the best, but he absolutely isn't a need, or even a want on the Leafs, much less to completely gut our Right Side defensive depth... not to mention your original proposal completely ignores the Cap... it's just very poorly thought out all around.
If you are looking to move Logan Brown happy to send Barabanov or Vesey, or a 3rd round pick.
Didn't Brown actually play more mins 5v5 with Kadri than Matthews that year? He also played some mins with Bozak.
Connor Brown - Teammates - On Ice - Natural Stat Trick
He got 6 goals on Matthews' wing, he got 7 on Kadri and Bozak's combined in 100 more minutes.
Brown played with Komarov and Kadri the most at 5v5 in 2016-17, 12 of his 29 5v5 points that season came with those two as well.

Never said Brown was viable replacement but you read it as you read it.
There was an article saying Willie's agent had approached the Leafs after being benched against Montreal.
If Nylander wants out, and you're advocating for Brown, and Brown and Willy play the same position...
Put 2 and 2 together and...
LOL!!! Guess I did.
