    Vancouver offering defensive help is an oxymoron.

    Anaheim is the only team that has the pieces we would want. Ottawa has Chabot; but he's not the d-man we really covet.

    As a Sens fan I really don't know what we could be offering since Chabot ain't for sale.

    Joe Murphy? Hey man. The guy is struggling with a serious disease. Take it easy on him.

    Anaheim has what Toronto wants, but I don't think they'd give it up since then they'd need those pieces. Not to mention, money wise, the only d man that makes sense is Fowler and that's not who Toronto would target

    If the Leafs are looking for Defensive help I don't think the Islanders make a good matchup(given we are already thin enough on the back end and giving up Pulock or even Dobson will only make that situation worse)

    Nylander would be nice to have but not the exact player we need

    I'd love Nylander, but we can't afford to give up Fowler/Lindholm/Manson/Montour, which is exactly what Toronto wants/needs.

    Only surprise is that it took Eklund this long to throw out something like this. You can tell he draws stuff out of a hat when he says the Islanders and Sens are offering defensive help.

    no no no, you got it all wrong. The Isles have these two young studs. Pelech and Mayfield. They are absolute workhorses out there. Personally I feel a 1 for 1 swap is a fair trade but since I'm feeling kind of saucy I think Pelech/Mayfield for Nylander is a steal for Toronto. They would downright hose the Isles if that kind of trade was made!

    With the way Lou operates? He's probably calling the Islanders on behalf of the Leafs to negotiate a trade with himself. This is the same guy that was trying to negotiate with Tavares for the Islanders while still employed by Toronto.

    I am not sure any of these team can actually afford to give up D. The Ducks might be the most capable but after Mason and Montour on the RS there is really nothing. We'd have to be getting a number 4 guy back IMO. Otherwise we'd be playing Schenn or Sustr top 4 minutes which is a bad idea. Unless "defensive help" Includes defensive forwards I can't see a deal that makes sense for the Ducks.

    lol Eklund

    The player I most want for Nylander is Josh Manson, and we know that he's practically untouchable

    If you're talking William Nylander the firm price is Lindholm or Manson. I don't think the Ducks need for a scoring forward is urgent enough to move either of those guys.

    Three of the four teams in this "rumour" either don't have what we need or can't afford to part ways with the them. Excellent sleuthing from Eklund as always.

    I would love to hear Dorion's impassioned speech selling Cody Ceci to Toronto.
