Pierre Luc Dubois
1st Round Pick
I suggested Nylander for him when I thought Nylander wouldn't sign here and we'd be forced to trade him. Huberdeau next to Matthews would be nice and idk if we could pull off that theft by giving them Marleau. This doesn't really make sense why Florida would want to trade him though,especially if they're going all in on Panarin. They could have the best 1st line next year with Huberdeau-Barkov-Panarin. Is he unhappy and just wants out?
I like it, but only because we have Tavares now and that is highway robbery for us imo.
Oh there's no doubt it's an overpayment by Columbus but with them most likely losing Panarin and Bobrovski this summer, they're going to need some elite talent up front. Maybe throw in a prospect on our end like Jeremy Bracco or make the 1st round pick a 2nd round pick instead
I would then ship Kapanen+a small add for Pesce
Hyman- Tavares- Marner
That to me is a all around phenomenal team with one of the best defenses in the league
I'd have to do this if it was actually offered.
Unfortunately Columbus wouldn't go for it.
Columbus would not do this.
Lets make a trade already. Do something, so boring.
Gards, Kadri, J.D Greenway, 2019 2nd
Staal + Brodin
Essentially the deal is Gards for Staal (rentals) and Kadri (3yrs @ 4.5m) for Brodin (2yrs left @ 4,166,667) + prospect & pick for their troubles.
Kap Matthews Nylander
Johnsson JT Marner
Marleau Staal Hyman
Moore Goat Brown
Neither would the Leafs
If both teams wouldn't do it.....probably means the value is fair for both.
Regardless, it's not happening.
If we were to trade Kadri, Staal is the man i'd go for in the summer, see if we could tie him to a couple of years. Certainly be a good 3C man if he wanted to end his career in his home town on a competitive team.
You wouldn't trade with Columbus for that package? As much as I love Matthews, a trade involving the Leafs acquiring Jones, Dubois and Andersen and a first? That's a ton of value coming back to the leafs.
Staal is from Thunder Bay.
I should put this thread on ignore. Every time I look at it the proposals just make my head spin. I presume everyone here is heartily using the OCS.
I like the idea of using Brown as a base for one of the better rental forwards on the market. I think he is more valuable to us in that sense, rather than just taking a pick at the Draft. I remember hearing Anaheim had interest in the past, so perhaps we could deal Brown, a future 2nd, and a forward prospect for Silfverberg.
We are trading Matthews, and that's final!!!!
I know how you feel. I feel the same way about these proclamation posts. Any bad trade proposal post is infinitely more fun. What's next? A post explaining to all of us "that's why people hate Leafs fans." The only point of these posts is to shame to silence.
Ah, my bad!
Not a million miles away if you squint whilst looking on google maps.
So, the shine has worn off of our new toy already?
Haven't been on the boards since Sunday afternoon. Night of and day after a loss here is unbearable so I tend to stay away until it hopefully calms down. Fill me in so I don't have to check the spazzoid threads and I understand the mood going forward, do we all hate Matthews even more now? Don't care if it is yes or no, just want to know what to expect until he scores again.
IMO, Matthews plays like a sniper, instead of a dominant 2-way centre and you don't pay 11.6m/yr for a sniper. In many ways, he's play as a 2-way centre has regressed instead of improve. This could be due to injuries, but it's definitely concerning.
Toronto Maple Leafs trade deadline primer: Kyle Dubas’...
I really want to disagree because this truth bomb hurts. But your observation that Matthews hasn't become that 2 way center many of us hoped he would is noted. However I disagree that about paying snipers. Goals win hockey games.
he's 21, wtf
