    That's not an insignificant offer. Don't know how Bruins fans feel.

    Wouldn't really be interested as a Bruins fan, obviously there is value there but McAvoy is a rare type of player from my viewing.

    i honestly dont see the bruins doing this for mcavoy alone . He has that much value at 19/20 years old he was playing top pair logging 23 min a game vs opposing top lines . and only going to get better

    I fully realize how valuable McAvoy is, but I would not give up that package for him in a million years. It's just too much much value going in Boston's direction. I mean three of those pieces alone are arguably better than anything the sens got for Karlsson. Different situation obviously, but still. This package of assets is off the charts good.

    McAvoy and Donato are both equal to Nylander, Liljegren Dermott and first rounder are throw in, no thank from Boston. Add to that the Bruins have Marchand, Pasta and Bergeron on great contracts, no need to pay Nylander what he will be asking.

    Boston isn’t trading their 1D. Would you trade Rielly for a 1st, DeBrusk, Vaakanainen, and Lauzon?

    Kid looks good, however I really would like to see him play without Chara before I place judgement!

    Not a Leaf or Bruin fan. McCoy is the best player at a more important position and Donato could be a very steady F for years in the NHL. Nylander refusing to sign is an issue. Dermott and Lilligren COULD be good second pairing D. Leafs first should be in high 20's. Both sides would stop and think about this.

    I think Boston would say no, value aside. They for the most part need to compete now and everything except Nylander needs more time in the oven.

    Not sure how much more value you think they have, especially at this moment

    id say the b's are getting more value but it just depends how good McAvoy really becomes, low end vs high end #1dman and we will just assume Donanto becomes a top 6 player for arguments sake.

    Leafs are still giving up nylander which is pretty much Donatos ceiling and Nylander has much more to show, Leafs are also giving up two dman with high potential, who could very well be #3 dman possibly more, and a late 1st.

    Both teams are taking risks, and i think both teams keep there young players so see how they pan out.

    Neither team goes for this trade and I understand why from both points of view.

    Long story short, if it isn't for Matthews then don't bother picking up the phone

    unfortunately unless youre ottawa #1 dmen are valued extremely high in the NHL and mcavoy is currently proven . Yes Willie is a good young player but not worth Charlie , and the other dmen with potential mean nothing imo since potential can go both ways .

    Is it funny? I wouldn't know! Are you suggesting that Chara has no roll in Macavoys play?

    Players like McAvoy don't get traded unless the player wants out or there's a significant disconnect with management.

    I don't see either here.

    Lots of value there, to be sure, but the Bruins probably have no interest in entertaining offers for McAvoy.

    To the retort that the Leafs might not want to give up that combo of quality and quantity either, that's valid too.

    The challenge for Toronto in the next 18 months is that they badly need to pry away top-end defense talent from another club, ideally cost-controlled for years to come, but teams are rarely in a position to relinquish it. This is yet another proposal where it's the right kind of player to meet TML needs, but the cost is high and the other team isn't going to be interested in giving up that piece anyway. Quality young defense is so rare.
