    Blackwell brings extra sandpaper too! Love his playstyle.

      do we get Copp to play with Engvall and Spezza on the 4th line? Kase may be concussed. The ask is 2 seconds but I think Dubas can get her done with 2 3rds and a 5th in 2024 if Appleton just went for a 7th lol

    The way I see this trade breaking down is leafs added the third for cap retention. Wish they have of added an additional pick to third team for another 50% retention. To leave them room to go after Jakob Middleton type for third pairing. Pushing holl to depth. So uou could run with Reilly-lyibushkin, gio - Brodie, sandin - Middleton. And when/if muzzin comes back for playoffs uou can add him in on third pairing subbing sandin in when needed. Never have too many nhl caliber defenceman.
    Next year uou can decide if uou want to trade muzzin and sign Middleton as he is rfa. Maybe gio takes a soezza deal for a year . Or maybe you trade liljegren. Point is now they would have more options.

      @Mark Smith Yeah that might work. You might be right about that gag order. Sometimes i wonder if DUmBASs even knows how to skate. Watching Cliiford play and Simmonds before that looks to me they wont be too much of a liability on the ice. They dont even have to instigate fights...their presence just need to deter any stupidity against any of our top 4 forwards. I think if our 4 forwards know they have protection...they will free wheel even more. I just noticed that against tough teams, possession of our top 4 guys drop drastically. They want to pass off as soon as they get the puck so they dont get hit.

      Mark Smith 2 หลายเดือนก่อน

      @Vincent Lee Spezza will get moved to the wing beside Blackwell who slots in as a defensive centreman.Blackwell is a huge upgrade over both clifford and simmonds.Simmonds and clifford both lose their effectiveness because Dubas probably has a gag order on fighting.

    • Vincent Lee
      Vincent Lee 2 หลายเดือนก่อน

      @Rawlee WThats been my read on DUmBASs. But his addition of Lyubushkin and Giordano...theyre on right track and a big yes on Middleton. I wonder if Blackwell can play in between Simmonds and Clifford... spezza moments is becoming less and less. Simmonds Clifford and Middleton in lineup should make our softer players feel safer and play better in playoffs.

    • Rawlee W
      Rawlee W 2 หลายเดือนก่อน +2

      You see, Middleton does this thing called playing physically. Kyle Dubas does not understand the value of this. Which is why the Leafs are currently set to enter playoffs with the least amount of physicality of any team for the 3rd straight year.

    • Tony Mccutcheon
      Tony Mccutcheon 2 หลายเดือนก่อน +1

      Just think a muzzin Middleton third pairing for the playoffs. Or perhaps uou go Middleton and lyibushkin. We could actually have a true shut down tough pairing to play against

    Dubas doing amazing here. Gio and Blackwell for 2, 2nd rounders, we got our 3rd back with Dermott, actually better because it's Winnipeg's. We aren't done

  • Felix Feldam
    Felix Feldam 2 หลายเดือนก่อน +2

    There is a possibly that the leafs could go after Tyler Motte for the 4th line as per rumours. Simmonds was a healthy scratch for some time and maybe he is traded but I’m hoping they keep him

    • Martin Klatt
      Martin Klatt 2 หลายเดือนก่อน +1

      Hmmm. I think Simmonds has a NTC, and his value is low. He had his 1000 game ceremony, and is home. Perhaps he retires if he goes to the Marlies. Given the curse of injuries come playoff time perhaps he is kept as insurance and is bought out in the off season?

      michael ching 2 หลายเดือนก่อน +1

      @Allen Tam Jacob chychrun would require you to literally empty everything. Robertson ,1st, knies, 2 3rds . All this because you'd also need salary retention.

    • Vincent Lee
      Vincent Lee 2 หลายเดือนก่อน +1

      @kevin b Prefers he stays out of lineup so we have room for another tough D and also use his cap space to improve somewhere else. Muzzin's cap hit of $5,625,000 is just too high and makes him in my opinion most over rated over paid dman in league. Muzzin is also probably slowest Dman in league and his play has been depreciating in last couple of years.

    • Vincent Lee
      Vincent Lee 2 หลายเดือนก่อน +1

      @Allen Tam i have a better term for Dubas which ive been using....DUmBASs. Surprised hes making moves in right direction with this and Lyubushkin. Too bad it took him this long to realize we need shanny hockey instead of his shinny hockey.

    • Vincent Lee
      Vincent Lee 2 หลายเดือนก่อน

      @Allen Tam But he is captain material with a lot of experience...maybe he can help young leafs sandin and lilgren learn.

      Hi cap hit for what he's showing this season isn't worth it. Honestly though if he does go and get picked up I'd say they're planning to go big for a goalie anyways.

      Leafs their AHL team borrow is his services I believe until the smoke clears with the trade deadline.. I don't think Dubus wants to trade him as he is a top future prospect of the leafs.

    • Your Local Legend
      Your Local Legend 2 หลายเดือนก่อน +4

      I'd say he got a pretty fair chance. He got some time playing on the 2nd line as well as power play minutes. I don't think he's NHL ready

  • Jeff Major
    Jeff Major 2 หลายเดือนก่อน

    This is exactly what the leafs needed to do. Now, I don’t think they’re done because it’s a big question mark on whether or not Mrazek and Clifford clear waivers. Though I don’t see anyone picking up Mrazek, if someone does, that would free up an additional 2.5 mil (approx.) close to the closing bell of the deadline. Could be room for another decent acquisition.

    • jrgtml67
      jrgtml67 2 หลายเดือนก่อน +1

      So the $ conversation even if Mrazek clears we save 1.1mill and around 1 with Clifford being waived. that's about 2.1mill. Now say we are blessed with Mrazek gets claimed, that's 1mill plus full Mrazek contract 3.85. Alas I have a bad feeling Mrazek squeaks through and we lose Sateri like Jared McCann. Either way though we aren't done, we have 8 D no way Sandin sits/Lily for I think Holl goes.

  • jrgtml67
    jrgtml67 2 หลายเดือนก่อน

    K so Mzarek clears.. we save 1.2mill Clifford clears 1mill saved. Mrazek doesn't clear that's 3.8 saved. We signed Harri Sateri at 750k has to clear first. I feel Sateri gets claimed though. Anyway worst case we have 2.1mill left. @ 2pm Monday, wild scramble at the end

    • Ryan J
      Ryan J 2 หลายเดือนก่อน

      Don’t forget we can still trade holl. That will clear up 2 mill in cap space and we still have a 1st rounder worst comes to worst.

  • ZZCossack ZZ
    ZZCossack ZZ 2 หลายเดือนก่อน +3

    Cupboard is getting pretty bare if Gio doesn't help them win a round. Dubas absolutely had to do something though but I guess we'll see how this works out.

    • Ryan J
      Ryan J 2 หลายเดือนก่อน +1

      What they really need is a long term RHD that can solidify the second pairing I think what Dubas is hoping for though is to sign gio to an extension at a discount.

    Girardano with Brodie or Sandin.
    If Muzzin is healthy
    Girardano Holl or Lijirgren
    Reily with Lybushkyn
    Holl with Brodie or Dzucka not sure if that spelling is correct.
    Need a 3rd line winger ?
    Nylander for Forsberg

    • Joe R
      Joe R 2 หลายเดือนก่อน

      it's going to be Reilly, Lybushkin / Gio, Brodie / with the last line likely Sandin Holl. This is a massive upgrade to what it has been and Sandin and Holl can concentrate on being a better version of what they already are and are good at. It's all players who have played together for years except for Reilly Lybushkin and they seem to fit together very well. They have been pushing Holl to add some offensive capability to his game and he's suffered defensively because of it. This will give him a chance to roll that back a bit and concentrate on shutting down the ice in a game he's used to with a partner he knows.

      @Michael It was a sloppy game last night by most of the team. All the teams have figured out, if you hit Willy on the boards once, he is done for the night. Willy hasen't shown up for the past 20+ games. He is lazy and easily gives the puck away...this is NOT a good thing in the playoffs.

    • Rawlee W
      Rawlee W 2 หลายเดือนก่อน +1

      @Clay M 5'9 190lbs. Not the physical presence the Leafs need. Similar acquisitions like? What other team is tasking 21+ minutes of playoff hockey to a 38 year old. What other team paid 2 2nd round picks a 3rd for that.

    • Clay M
      Clay M 2 หลายเดือนก่อน

      @Rawlee W Despite his size, Blackwell actually lays the body quite a bit. So by no means is he another “weak small forward.” He puts up good points and is a great depth acquisition. Gio has been playing well above over 21 plus minutes a night, and has still looked good on a terrible Seattle team. Put him on the 2nd line with Brodie and that’s a great shutdown defensive pairing. If you look at what other teams had to give up for similar acquisitions, the Leafs gave up virtually nothing. This is a great trade for the Leafs.
