Leafs options for the trade deadline

If the leafs need anything right now its a scoring winger, and a shoot-out artist, a list of trade options would be: Brendan Bell, Staffan Kronwall, Andy Wozniewski, every draft pick except the 1st rounder, Wade Belak, Travis Green, Kris Newbury, Aleksander Suglobov, and perhaps J-S Aubin

With this list to work with the leafs can perhaps aquire:
Jason Blake(doubt it),

Marek Svatos(would love him)

Milan Hejduk(Sweet)

Bill Guerin(might as well start engraving the cup now)

Jamal Mayers(he better be cheap, he wont do much)

Dainus Zubrus(doubt caps, would give him up but if they do, for the right price, watch out)

Glen Murray(interesting)

Bryan Smolinski(meh)

Todd Bertuzzi(hey seeing how anson carter went for free, anything could happen)

Shawn Horcoff(?)

Michael Nylander(mmmm)

Martin Straka(ooo love to, but doubt it)

Petr Sykora(yay a shoot out artist)

Richard Zednik(nice)

Jozed Stumpel(i dont like em…)

Gary Roberts(k that s*** is getting old)

MARC SAVARD(i would definatley get his jersey, although he wont come cheap, but with sundin, ohohoho man)

Sergei Fedorov(sweet, yep)

So i can almost guarantee you they will get atleast one of these guys…almost. what do you think?

    Only one worth getting is Marek Svatos!

  2. 42wellwood42 says:

    Svatos and Hejduk would be great!!

  3. LeafyMcLeaf says:

    Where do Savard and Fedorov come from?

    I'm not someone who likes to sit and speculate over this sort of thing. I'd love Savard, Fedorov, Roberts, Bertuzzi, Murray, Guerin, or Svatos, but there are a lot of things, like price, that come into consideration. I'll judge the team when JFJ is done with it.

  4. dstntml says:

    I can almost guarantee you they won't get any of those players.
    I'd love to see Svatos or Hejduk, or both come to Toronto. But JFJ isn't good enough a GM to work out a deal that would invlove those two coming here.

  5. BLUE_AND_WHITE says:

    I've heard the leafs are looking for Svatos and Hejduk together, but i dont expect the leafs to aquire anyone on that list.

  6. vindictiveb says:

    It would take more than Bill Guerin to win the Leafs a cup!  LOL

  7. Hoondog2 says:

    The Leafs would be crazy to get involved in these rediculous trades that are happening right now, the asking prices aren't just high, they're just plain stupid.

    IMO the Leafs will make a couple of depth moves that won't cost them much and they will consider Welly, Peca, Tucker their deadline deals, which is fine with me.

  8. BLUE_AND_WHITE says:

    my question is, if rivet is going for a 1st, and Tkuchuk for a whole teams selection, why aren't we selling Tucker andO'neil. Screw this season, we could get a ton of drafts and young talent.

  9. mojo19 says:

    I've never heard anything about Svatos or Hejduk except from people on here. Someone please give me a link.

  10. mojo19 says:

    Absolutely. Jeff O’s popped in 20 this year, if Rivet got you a first rounder so should O’Neil.

  11. mojo19 says:

    Although Carter was only worth a fifth rounder so…who knows.

  12. curtman96 says:

    what kind of return would jeff oneil bring….maybe packaged with bell.

  13. mojo19 says:

    I really don't know, but like I was just saying, if you consider what Carolina paid for Carter, not much.

    Packaged with Bell…I don't know if they make a good package because Bell would be the type of guy you trade to a seller and O'Neil being older and a UFA would be traded to a buyer.

  14. mojo19 says:

    They were saying on hockey central Olli Jokinen actually might be available. I know its crazy. But the feeling in Florida is that Jokinen is not the type of guy they want to be their captain, and the best way to change captains is by trading him away (most guys are not like Modanno, who would continue to play well for the organization not hold too many hard feelings).

    They went on to say that a deal for Jokinen before deadline was unlikely but he could be available for a trade in the offseason, but it would probably be Hossa-Heatley type blockbuster and not Jokinen for a couple good young guys and a first rounder or something. That being said I don't think the leafs have anything to offer except for Tomas Kaberle.


  15. 92-93 says:

    remaining 'big' names out there for the deadline:

    Bertuzzi (injured)

    Tucker – ? probably not
    Smyth – ? probably not

  16. 92-93 says:

    and of those big names, there are not many that should be that attractive or realistic for the Leafs.

    I would love to Smyth on the Leafs, or Biron, or Prucha, Modin, Malone, Lang, Blake, Roberts.

    the problem is what the Leafs have to give up – especially for Blake, Lang, Roberts, Biron, etc.

    Antropov, Bell, Bell and a 2nd round pick can only bring so much.

    the only way i see anything happening is if the Leafs manage to somehow trade Kubina (injured), Gill, McCabe (no trade clause), or Tucker (JFJ doesnt want to trade him). THEN i could see guys like Berard or the above names coming to Toronto.

    otherwise, it will be a quiet deadline in Toronto. and that is better than giving up multiple picks a-la-Atlanta for some mediocre veteran players.

  17. mojo19 says:

    I could see Prospal being rejuvinated after a change of sceneray. He would look okay with Mats or even playing with two of Steen, Stajan, and O'Neil. Actually prefereably Mats because that line has cooled off lately, they should split them up for a couple games.

    Or bringing Modin back seems realistic and would make sense too.

    Oh, and stop calling Tkachuck mediocre.

  18. libralounge says:

    why would we want berard???
    he snubbed us when he returned to the nhl after his eye injury and what can he do for us that woz, harrison, kronwall etc. can't already do for us or soon be doing?

  19. libralounge says:

    i agree with mojo…we're better off hanging on to o'neil than getting a 6th round pick for him…he's kinda on the upswing anyways.

  20. libralounge says:

    amen…JFJ doesn't command the respect among other GM's to pull off something like that.

  21. Aetherial says:

    yes it would.

    Do you have a point to make beyond that?

  22. JuicemaN says:

    Tkachuch is mediorce, I used to be a huge tkachuk fan but he shows up to camp over weight, he's lazy and thinks he's a gift to the NHL. He's not what he used to be and Atlanta aid way too much for him.

    Tkachuck would've been worththat 3 years ago but not now.  But then again, Atlanta paid that for him so I guess I'm wrong.

    Mainly because we are being run by the worst GM in the league. If JFJ had any knowledge on how to manage a team, he would trade Tucker and O'neill, and the return would be amazing, there won't be another time where Tucker and O'neill are worth as much as they are now. I bet O'neill could land a 1st and 4th round pick. And Tucker could land a 1st, 3rd and good prospect. But he has already signed Tucker to a 4 year deal worth 3 million a season. So don't expect anything to happen. This is exactly why the Leafs are never going to win another cup. Poor management and ownership.

  24. the_word says:

    The difference between Carter and Rivet (both underachieving this season) is the position they play, don't expect anything for O'Neil

  25. the_word says:

    No expects the Leafs to win the cup, but most fans like to see a competitive team.  The Leafs goal is to be competitive and slowly build for the future.

  26. the_word says:

    Unfortunately the source is Eklund

  27. Carlton60 says:

    Petr Cajanek has been put on waivers – don't be surprised if JFJ picks him up for some added depth.

    57games played — 8 goals — 26 assists — 34 points…  not bad!

    Also, I don't think there’s a problem with our goaltending – Aubin went 9-0-2 in the last 11 games last year.  It's pretty hard for the guy to be in tip-top game shape this season – he's only played one period in 20 games.

    Berard?  There’s always a possibility – but the $2.5 million salary tells me “no”.

    I just fell off my chair laughing so hard. Your a typical blinded Leaf fan your giving up crap that nobody wants and expects some of value in return. I wouldnt take any of those gyus you offered.  

  29. Carlton60 says:

    What does everyone think of today's trade? Frankly, I like it! We gave up Bendan Bell and a 2nd rounder in exchange for Yanic Perreault and a 5th rounder – this just may have been the sleeper trade of the day.

    Here are my thoughts on what Perreault brings to the Leafs:
    1) #1 face-off man in the leauge – that's a huge bonus for Toronto.
    2) offensively-minded playmaker – should improve Toronto's power play.
    3) relies on skills rather than grit – won't spend much time in the penalty box.
    4) doesn't match Peca's defensive skills, but has the ability to score 20-25 goals in the regular season – dependable 2nd line centre; especially if Peca is not available down the stretch or his injury keeps him out longer than expected.
    5) has played for Toronto before – shouldn't take long to adjust.

    On the flip-side, he's not a big centre, he's not a physical player and he's not known to possess strong defensive instincts. However, he helps fill a void that Toronto needed to address without sacrificing a 1st round-draft pick and/or a young "blue-chip" NHL'er.

    Trade sucks Leafs are out of it. As usual giving up youth for old guys.
