Well if they moved Willy to either of the Wild or Flyers cap would be coming back. I think LA is the only team that maybe can give up non cap assets back. For the Petro thing to even be considered more money needs to go out the door (Kerfoot+Aj)

I don't see Petro coming to the Leafs anyways, I think family decision will be to stay in STL for the 8 years in the 7.7-8 million per range

Why? 30+ goal scoring winger who lead the league in close proximity scoring and is exceptional at puck possession and zone entries. Yeah, best avoid him at all costs!

The question is: who, or what, the hell does Philly have that Leafs could possibly want in return?

They don't HAVE to move Nylander. They already moved Kapanen. They could dump Kerfoot and Johnsson as well. Yawn.

Oh i dunno maybe our young dmen? Provorov Sanheim and Myers but knowing Dubas hes probably more interested in Ghost since he likes his dmen to be incapable of defending.

Either way Flyers wont trade for Nylander because of the cap and even if they had the room I wouldn't part with any of the first three Dmen. Leafs are now in the position Philly was in 10 years ago, trying to get by on patch work D.

So the Flyers, who have no cap space, will be trading for Nylander with no big hit going to Toronto so that Toronto can free up space for Pietrangelo...makes sense.

Kerfoot maybe but Johnsson would be a mistake. Would move the Leafs closer to a one line team

Leafs need depth, grit and defense. If i remember correctly there were only like 2-3 goals scored in the CBJ series that didnt come from forwards named JT Matthews and Nylander.

And if I recall correctly, their defense has been awful for years and years. So that needs to be addressed. Ideally they move Marner or Tavares to keep some depth. But both are moveable, despite Tanner's claims that there isn't one single bad contract on the books. Haha.

Moving one of the two would solve the issue but It is hard to see any of them moving with a flat cap for 3 years. Plus JT has NMC

I'm aware that JT has a NMC. And that Marner is untradeable. That's my point. Ideally you dump one of them, add a true 1D, and maintain some forward depth. But they can't. So they have to compromise on depth to add a 1D.

Doughty gets TOR a cup no question.

Put him on a team like TOR he bounces back. Doughty tried to do too much the past couple of years due to his line mates and him feeling he needed to do more than he should have. Get him better line mates and he’s not spending all his energy trying to play both sides to make up for the crappy other guy.

Get the guy a linemate so it gets all the pressure off of him.
