@Ze_theLeafsFan @Mitch_S2 Radulov has awesome numbers and still only 28

@Ze_theLeafsFan @Mitch_S2 I acknowledged that just saying that if you look what Winnik got us why not do the same thing with Radulov.

@totalrebuild Tough to send Marner back to junior but you gotta wonder if he's ready for prime time. Hopefully Lafontaine's hockey summit looks at this.

I'm quite certain this Radulov stuff is a joke but that being said if you could get him here for big bucks for one year he could totally be worth it to move at the deadline.

@Burtonboy @Bruffins It's ridiculous to think you should ever pick Strome over Marner because we have small prospects.

@Cameron19 @Mitch_S2 @Marlies Man Just happens all the time, hindsight is obviously 20/20 but it does seems to happen over and over. 


Makes me think the leafs are really looking at Barzal

@Cameron19 @Marlies Man It always surprises me that a player who is so highly touted a year prior to be drafted falls a little and then ends up surprising everyone. 


I understand players need to progress and all that but what if you just have a bad year your draft year.

@Luke_R @Burtonboy @Pent_House The reason less players make it from the NCAA is because you can't get there at 16. All these borderline talents choose the CHL because you can concentrate on hockey at a younger age. 


It's an inferior league considering the ages of the players.

@FRyan @PepTalk @Mitch_S2 @DeclanK Frattin was pretty highly touted at the time.

@PepTalk @Mitch_S2 @DeclanK A late first and a prospect. Early second depending on the prospect. 


I think he makes more sense to move in  a larger package

@FRyan Craig Button's recent top NCAA players included Camaranesi, Hockeys future did one as well and they included Toninato funny how these plays are overlooked by leaf fans.

@DeclanK I really like Bernier, I like his demeanor, really talented. But he's 3 years too old for us right now. 


He won't want to sit through a brutal rebuild

@ProfessorRance @Mitch_S2 For me I'd rather move JVR for a player who can play center. 


The blues will have cap issues, target Schwartz

@ProfessorRance @Mitch_S2 A salary retained Phaneuf could be pretty intriguing, I'd go up to 1.5 mil. First chance to sign Nichushkin give him a JVR deal.

Wonder what's worth more to Dallas to 1st rounder this year or Valeri Nichushkin


Given the abundance of defenders available and their depth on the wings I imagine they would part with Nichushkin. 

He would be the primary target for me if they are interested in Phaneuf.

For the sake of their careers this core needs a fresh start. They should be able to recognize that by now.

@HHT @Jmessih If Strome is available they will take him, but I do agree they are high on Barzal. Also have shown no fear in taking injured players (Goats Rielly)

@Burtonboy Hopefully the NHL realizes this. Arizona would make more from Toronto's revenue sharing

@traNsplantEdneWfie @Mitch_S2 I think your allowed to make a trade today with anybody, only stipulation is that any player involved cannot play in the playoffs.

Just curious, if the leafs wanted to sign O'Connor they would be able to make a trade to clear a contract spot?

@Jimmie Dorey @Mitch_S2 @Habskilla He spoke about him in leafs lunch the other day. And yes I understand they would have to finish 5th to fall

@Habskilla Ending up with Marner won't be an issue.  If we fall to 6th I believe Hunter wants Barzal. I actually think they are considering him at 4, won't happen but they like him.

@North Kariya  @Mitch_S2 @Savo43 @Scotty_8 Either way I have no interest in him as a rebuilding team.

Lets not pretend he's some too way stud.

@Hifi75 @traNsplantEdneWfie @Mitch_S2 Doubt they move Couture. 


For me the only young centers that could potentially be available are as follows: 


O'Reilly 

Duchene 

Couturier


I could see Duchene moved as they love O'Reilly. To me moving Kessel for Duchene opens up alot of options at the draft as we are no longer dying to draft a centerman

@traNsplantEdneWfie @Mitch_S2 Either way a second is a waste. This team needs to rebuild, not take on aging players. 


Luckily for us Thornton controls his destination and has no interest in mentoring kids. Likely a hall of famer and arguably the best player to never win a cup

@traNsplantEdneWfie @Mitch_S2 Using assets to get a 36 year old center . Thornton is old but he will cost alot regardless.

@Anthony Petrielli @Mitch_S2 @Pent_House No idea. Height is an issue. Hasn't produced like this before but has always hovered around a PPG. 

I imagine with the NCAA if you aren't drafted after your freshman season you have to be pretty special because your now competing with another draft year.

@Anthony Petrielli @Mitch_S2 @Pent_House He's a family friend, I hope the leafs give him a good. 

Best defensive player of the year, 53 points in 38 games. Solid two-way center not afraid to go into the dirty areas. Kid is built like a brick shit house too

@sniperstar @Mitch_S2 @zoidbergman For me the big thing is the potential impact, I just see Barzal as that much more of a difference maker. Either way it shouldn't matter. 

Interesting to see though how much people put an emphasis on size, Marner almost has 3 times the points Crouse does..

@sniperstar @Mitch_S2 @zoidbergman Don't Rantanen or Werenski quite fit into that group. Same with Zacha.

@zoidbergman @Mitch_S2 I think 6th they don't have an issue taking Barzal, assuming the top five are as expected. 

Picking 6th your deciding between Provorov, Crouse and Barzal. To me it's between the Provorov and Barzal. And I want a centerman.
