    I think he’s exactly the kind of player the leafs are in need of, a big winger who has a little offensive upside. CBJ has many players of this ilk.

    He can fight the odd time too so no need to carry a full time heavy weight like Babcock usually likes to have.

    Any CBJ fans wanna weigh in on what you guys might want?

    The Avalanche have a Josh Anderson, you should totally trade for him, he's great.

    Can he play defense? If not, pointless trade.

    Leafs need defence too but the forward group is butter soft and in the playoffs the past two years it really showed

    Connor Brown kinda serves this purpose for Toronto already.

    I feel like Anderson's value to Columbus is more than it would be worth for Toronto.

    Leafs need some added jam in the top 9, though.

    CBJ could definitely use some PK help. Brown has term and could serve that role. They probably have similar value.

    If Anderson was really on the market, I think A LOT of teams would be in on it. I know my Bruins would be.

    Price would be high. Probably higher than he is worth.

    You would think Columbus would be looking for more "skill" upfront, especially with the Panarin situation. From Toronto's POV... Nylander obviously too much, but Johnsson or Kapanen not nearly enough. Panarin and Bobo situations make this more of a "go for it" than "Kapanen + futures for Anderson" kind of year for them.

    I once had a Columbus poster argue with me that Anderson is a better player than both Nino Niederreiter and Mikael Granlund and they wouldn't trade him for either straight up. If that's any indicator to the OP on how some Columbus fan(s) view him.

    Someone told me that Anderson is worth more than the 10th overall pick the Oilers had in this draft...

    A CBJ poster told me that asking for Anderson was pointless unless Draisaitl was on the table (Anderson being part of a bigger package) soooo I don’t think Toronto fans will like the ask.

    Two years ago Connor Brown outscored Tom Wilson. Would I trade Wilson for him today? NO, NO I would not. I also see no reason Columbus would intentionally get much, much softer.

    ^^I’d obviously trade Wilson for either Draisaitl or Granlund. I’d have to think long and hard about Niedereiter and 10th overall. See I can be reasonable, within limits.

    Wilson has negative value dude.

    In what world is he close to being worth Bouchard?

    You’re cute buddy. I think I like you. Tom Wilson just this last Playoff had more points than anyone in either of the two possible teams represented in your avatar have had in, oh, let’s just call it 10+ years.

    Negative value? Your comment has negative value as does your opinion. Tom Wilson? Well his name is etched on the trophy so I guess you can cry about it. You cheering for a team that’s gonna make the POs this season? If so, THEN I’ll care about you.

    Toronto should do it. Anderson would be their second best dman. I’m sure though they’d rather find a dman to play that position though.

    Uh Anderson had 3PTS in 6 PO Games last season so he might actually be the 5th best F on the Maple Leafs ahead of Matthews and Kadri. Here a DERP, there a DERP.
