I'm not against trading those players but I do want a significant return.  Addition by subtraction isn't going to work: the Leafs have no replacements.

McC is gone for sure imho

Leafs are paying Carlyle a large salary.  He can wait..

I believe JFJ had to put proposals (re-build, major signings) to the board of directors.

At one point he requested he be allowed to blow the Leafs up.  The board refused him permission.  Enter... Jason Blake...

Let`s keep Clarkson another year and see what he can do.  Leafs will be fleeced in any deal involving him.

Leafs need secondary scoring.  If we move Lupul, we need to replace him with someone who can score.

Franson is 2nd in the league in hits and is a PP specialist and is 6'5.  Other teams are curious, he has value... although maybe not #3 overall value.

No it doesn't.  Not adding value beyond his stats does.

People are keen to improve our compete level, which would be good, and our physicality, truculence, etc.

But remember, the Leafs had shitty secondary scoring from the not-Kessel lines.

I can't see Lupul going to LA.  Don't people on this site think he's the worst defensive forward in the league?  And maybe the best defensive team is going to trade their captain for him?  This makes little sense.

that's not too bad. 

According to Cap Geek's projection that would leave $18+m on the table.  That's enough to open doors.

You know what you'd get for trading Kessel? 


1st round pick (20-30 overall)

2nd round pick

That is about it.  Anything else is a pipe-dream.

I think the idea is to have someone in management players can look up to and might actually take advice from.  The coach is an adversary as often as not.  This kinda setup has worked well for Boston with Cam Neely and  Pittsburg with Mario Lemieux (although he's an owner).

Leiweke must be a busy man.  He may want to lighten his workload regarding the Leafs.

Yzerman is the GM in TB, this is about bringing in another suit.  

Players admire a former player like Shanahan whose won Cups.

I think Bolland's consciousness is going to be struck with a full dose of reality.  With his injuries, he's not getting a long term deal from anyone.  I wouldn't be surprised to see him back on a one year deal

Yeah, I don't understand this "fire Nonis" thing.  If there's a better GM, hire the better GM.  Otherwise Nonis has been quite good.  Clarkson looks bad but Burke had plenty of bad signings, too

which we would.  Toronto is a prestige job despite our recent failure.  And we actually have some decent players and prospects now: so much the better.

Did I mention the Leafs coach is one of the highest paid year after year?

Plus if you get fired, you get to keep your money!

The Leafs might need an interim coach next year... like that guy in Chicago who was fired when Quenneville became available a few games into the season.
