    Swapping Bracco to Rasanen is fine by me. I would prefer a 2018 2nd but get that it's a tough sell for the Leafs to not pick until the 3rd round. So in sum: 2018 1st, Rasanen, and 2019 conditional 2nd- becomes a 2019 3rd if Tanev doesn't play in 70 games due to injury.

    As for Kapanen, he is valued way more to Leafs fans that he is to us. As of right now we have our RW depth of Boeser, Petersson and Virtanen. Along with that, we have lots of bottom 6 players already. Kapanen reminds me of a hybrid between Hansen and Raymond- just not something that I would consider a core piece in a Tanev deal for.

    And the shady used car salesman neglects to mention that the Mercedes sees the mechanic more often than it sees a gas station.

    Perhaps I didn't explain myself clearly in my last post, and I apologize for that.

    What I think the right value is, isn't relevant. I'm not making the deal. What you feel the value is, isn't relevant either... for the same reason. We are just two fans of the sport, chatting on a board. It's my guess at where value **might** be.

    Vancouver management would make the deal, if they felt it was what best for them.

    As far as a veteran UFA signing... you are right.. you can't replace the player.. .but you can replace the veteran leadership, and learning. We signed Hainsey for much the same reason... there are plenty of similar guys out there, that could help. Polak has been a good guy for us, consummate pro... UFA... not saying he's the right guy... but there are plenty of veterans that can bring along the other guys. As far as watchable, competitive team... I think a sophisticated fan base such as Vancouver, would surely understand and enjoy the process, if management just came out and said, this is what we are doing. Toronto fans have been fine with it.

    Rasnaen is looking solid but Holl is a better D man IMO, don't forget Aaltonen, Grundstrom, Rosen etc. If you want Rasanen as the guy added to the picks I am 100% cool with that.

    I don't want Tanev. At all. He's a decent player but his injuries are too much now.

    Would you want Lupul from a couple years ago?

    Personally I like the aspect of Rasanen. Could be our Gudbrandson replacement in a few years with that size and also being a RHD. With the rumblings that Tryamkin is still open to coming back once he fulfills his KHL contract, eventually our top 4:
    Tryamkin-Dobson/Bouchard
    Juolevi-Rasanen

    But it is still better than any of the other vehicles that you currently own....and that piece of gum and lint are still of no value to the dealer. Tell me what person selling a car would say....okay take it away for free. He would quickly tell you to get back to your shopping cart and keep wheeling down the road. If youbdont believe me go try it. Pick any lemon and offer them something they don't need.

    You're looking at acquiring the perfect partner for Reilly. It's going to sting to pick up a player like that in a trade. FYI multiple leafs fans over the past few months have agreed to this deal so it's not too outlandish.

    Because it would make his value go way higher?

    I don't think it's fair to compare Tanev to Lupul.

    Didn't Lupul have a chronic injury? Something that kept getting reinjured all the time? Tanev has been missed a lot of time this year to mumps and a broken jaw. That's hardly going to repeat itself. Only so many times you can block a puck with your face before you start turning away. He'll learn his lesson quick enough.
    Also, Lupul is the worst case scenario. Yes, it is possible that Tanev keeps missing more than 20 games every season, but likely? I think not.

    Also I'd like to remind you that in hindsight, the ask from Leafs fans for Lupul was also very high. There were no biters, but the price was set high. The same goes for Tanev. If he does manage to stay healthy, he is a premium defender at the most prized position. And he has synergy with Rielly to boot. That has value.
    In the end, we're just going to wait this out until Tanev pulls off a decent uninjured season. There's actually a chance we might move Edler out at the deadline instead (promise him a contract if he moves for a chance at the cup).

    Nope, almost none of Lupul's injuries were consistent. He had the same situation, back injury, blood infection from the surgery to fix the back injury, broken arm off a blocked shot (from a teammate), hit that tore something in his shoulder, groin injury, etc.

    Some guys are just brittle.

    ...it's only been 3 years. Not like a decade or something crazy like that, I can't imagine what that would be like.

    He's a right D.
    He's a defensive D.
    Hainsey needs a break from playing every single penalty kill.

    Yes Lupul was having some serious injury issues combined with his contract let Toronto acquire him as a cap dump, pulled through them having a couple good seasons with the Leafs earning a new multi year contract, then had the injury bug flair up again making the new contract look horrible.

    We don't actually know what the issue is with Tanev at the moment, there's been a lot of 'lower body' injuries keeping him out of a lot of games the past two seasons. Could be a chronic issue that's going to keep him getting injured, or it could be something that can recover from and resume regular play. Either way this typically isn't information that organizations release to the fans, so we can only speculate, but actual team doctors or any team looking to trade for such a player will have a much better idea.

    The thing I always like to point out though is that calling this a career-long thing for Tanev is ridiculous, people just obfuscate the issue by looking at his early NHL GP and overlooking the fact that he spent his first 3 pro seasons bouncing between the NHL/AHL with time spent in transition or the press box. I pulled these numbers for another thread, but looking at Tanev's injury list through his first six seasons you get:

    2010-11
    Missed 3 games (upper body injury).
    2011-12
    0 injruies
    2012-13
    Missed the last 10 regular season and first 4 playoff games (leg injury).
    2013-14
    Missed 7 games (broken thumb)
    Missed the last 11 regular season games (broken finger).
    2014-15
    Missed 2 games (undisclosed).
    Missed 10 games (upper body injury).
    2015-16
    Missed 1 game (upper body injury).
    Missed 1 game (undisclosed).
    Missed 2 games (lower body injury).
    Missed 3 games (upper body injury).
    Missed 6 games (undisclosed).

    Which is a total of 56 games lost to injuries over his first six years, averaging roughly 9 regular season games lost a season. Potentially lower as there are 9 "undisclosed" games which may not necessarily be from injury. That's nothing to unusual, this is hardly a Sami Salo case here.

    Austin Mathews has played two seasons(164 games) and he has missed 20 already, based on what leaf fans are saying about Tanev being injury prone, I’d say Austin is well on his way to pass Tanev for missed games

    Lol you're reaching....AM has more full seasons than Chris Tanev despite starting starting his career 2 years ago :laugh:

    Seriously, send VAN a conditional 2019 1st, and every block of 10 games he missed, let it drop a round. if he missed a full year, VAN sends over the 1st :sarcasm:
