I think some people misheard what I said. The Leafs were looking at the deal even after the Muzzin trade. It wasn’t one or the other. Muzzin was already on the team and Dubas was still looking to add. This deal fell apart closer to deadline day if not on deadline day.
So I like the idea of Ekblad the most.
Of the Defence mentioned I think only Doughty would make sense for the Kings to move out.Nylander would almost certianly be the guy traded for Doughty.Also they would have to move Zaitsev out and Brown out to keep him long term.Doughty makes 11 million starting next offseason.Cant have tavares(11)matthews (11.6 ) Marner (10.5?) Nylander (7) and Doughty (11) Roughly 51 million on 5 players.Heck even without Nylander trying to ice a competitive roster with 4 guys taking half your cap is poor cap management.
Hopefully Gards moves on however the injury he and Dermott had lessened their impact during the playoffs a lot.
I can see toronto getting a defence or 2 players before the start of the season only thing im not a fan of was the nylander signing we are better with out him and use that cash for the defence or a good dependable back up
I think trades signings will all happen just before July 1 and end of 2019 draft managers sure love the fans to think what happen and wait for thinks to happen makes it more exciting and fun for hockey fans
My insiders are telling me the D they were after was Dougie Hamilton . Apparently the asking price was to steep and would've involved a draft pick, either Kapanen or Johnsson and either Sandin or Liligren. The Leafs would've agreed to part with those players had Carolina also taken Zaitsev. They weren't willing to and that's where the talks fell apart.....you're welcome!!
It was Dougie Hamilton but they wanted Nylander plus so it didn't go threw. No way LA trades Doughty after just signing him long term and no way Florida trades Exblad until they see if they sign Panarin and Bobrovsky in the offseason.
I believe they were trying to get Ekblad and i believe if it was for Kadri, it will happen more likely now than before. After the suspension, whether it was for the right reasons or not, hes played his last game as a Leaf. I believe the Leafs will be quite active this summer with regards to trades, signings and possibly UFA. Marner will be signed first then we will see a lot of moves.
Andrew Piluk Hockey great video again like always . Just wanted to ask you a question this big name defenseman the leafs were trying to acquire what do you thing the price was for the leafs to give up ? Cause I doubt zaitsev (due to term ) and brown ( not enough value ) get this deal done in a package together?
Wouldn't be shocked at all if both Kapanen and Andreas were traded, if their demands are high.. May be replaced with one of the Ruskies, and either Bracco or Marchment. Love that they are creating some competition.
Connor Brown an Oiler would make sense. Him and McDavid tore up the OHL together on the same line.
Well Gardiner is definitely gone and they need a right handed D Man, the issue is several contracts they have guys signed to currently that don't offer a lot in terms of asset to another interested club. Kadri could be traded but what team wants a head case center who disqualifies himself every postseason? Marleau's not going anywhere, Zaitsev isn't going anywhere, and there's not a lot beyond that unless Nylander or Marner are a part of it. If the Leafs are looking for an Elite D Man to accompany Rielly they are going to have to be extremely creative and offer something big in return, it will be interesting to say the least. In my opinion the Leafs biggest issue is their system that they play in under their head coach which needs to change and stop leaving their Goaltender out to dry every other period.
Doughty wouldnt make much sense given his cap hit. Ekblad could definitely make sense as could Dumba. Trouba could be a really interesting one this off season but apparently he doesnt want to play in Canada.
Doughty or Subban likely. Ekblad is off the table imo. Not as well known and is more than likely franchised in Florida unless they get a major deal for him.(which I believe a lot of teams are gun shy on)
Absolute zero way LA trades Doughty unless there’s a package with Marner in it. If not, the Kings are perfectly fine with keeping their franchise D. As to why Leafs fans think they can build a team around 3-4 $10M+ players is beyond me. I’d worry about getting past the first round before I start mortgaging everything.
The Brown to Edmonton talk was for Matt Benning.
To speed up the overhaul, Kings should have used Doughty as a trade bait even before his recent long term was signed. It would be a King's Ransom. No pun intended! The Kings could have gotten 2 NHL highly skilled players plus a pick for him.
Have you and Steven Brown released the Leafs Forever followup podcast yet?
I'd heard peiterangelo thought he was going to be a leaf in a deal for Nylander, it was before st Louis picked things up
