Leafs trade rumour of the day features Ryan Getzlaf

When Ducks GM Bob Murray announced a month ago that everyone on his team, excluding veterans Saku Koivu and Teemu Selanne, could be traded, it opened the floodgates for rumours involving his team’s Big Three: forwards Ryan Getzlaf, Bobby Ryan and Corey Perry.

It also lit a blazing fire a under the Ducks, who have recorded a 9-1-1 mark since the comments were made. With his club now 10 points out of a playoff spot, Murray may yet change his mind but speculation remains that the Ducks will be sellers as the NHL trade deadline nears.

There are a number of teams being bandied about but with the Leafs expressing a need for a big, strong, playmaking centre, Getzlaf would seem a natural fit. For trade speculation.

In one scenario, the Leafs would send centre Tyler Bozak and forward Nazem Kadri to the Ducks with defenceman Luke Schenn. To sweeten the deal, GM Brian Burke might also throw in promising young centre Joe Colborne of the Marlies or a first-round pick.

Another rumour has the Leafs shipping Nikolai Kulemin, a first-round pick, Schenn and promising junior tough guy Brad Ross, 19, to California.

    Unrelated, sorry:

    How did they not catch that clock slowing down right before the game winner during the Columbus LA game last night? Seriously, watch the video:
    It clearly slows down almost to the point of freezing. No one in the building caught that? That blows my mind. How can they not review a goal that close (0.5 seconds "remaining") and catch this mistake. I don't know if it's fair to call foul play, but this just seemed blatantly obvious that the goal should not have counted.

    So what if there isn't a president set regarding clock malfunctions, the freeze clearly added more than half a seconds to the period, allowing the kings to take it. I guess Columbus doesn't care (that much closer to Nail) but the rest of the teams in the Western race must.

    Just messed up.

  2. JoelLeafs says:

    Pfff, I'd take either of those trades in a second. No chance either is made, however. I just can't really see them trading one of those guys, least of all Getzlaf.

  3. dumbassdoorman says:

    I hear you Getzlaf is going no where, I still think maybe we wind up with JVR somehow….lol…just seems to be a feeling i suddenly have

  4. hockey_lover says:

    When you get that feeling about JVR, is your hand in your pants? Cause if it is .. stop it.  lol

    My heart stopped for a second when I saw Gordie Howe's picture on TSN's main page. I thought he'd died.

  6. reinjosh says:

    I can see how some people could miss it. It wasn't like it was blatantly obvious. But you would think in an arena with 10 000 plus people, someone would have caught it. 

  7. reinjosh says:

    Nope just mild dementia. 

  8. dumbassdoorman says:

    Awww man that was awesome shot seriously, I spit my beer out when I read that, but UMMMM, nope I am a lot of things but not that…lol…just saying

  9. MystifoLeafs says:

    For some odd reason everytime I hear Gordie Howe's name I have this urge to raise my elbow in the air and say "Gordie." Guess I have watched Slapshot too many times.

  10. palindrom says:

    you know im actually cheering for the leafs this season for three reasons:

    1. Montreal sucks!
    2. Toronto have their best teams in years
    3. They dont have a high paid goalie anymore!

  11. Boston_Bruins says:

    Holy shit, Gagner. I know Sittler had 10 but I don't think anyone had 9. Sam Gagner, tied for second most points in a game of all time? Wow.

  12. reinjosh says:

    That was my exact reaction. Where the hell did that come from?

    In one game, he put up more points than Scott Gomez has all season…
  13. Steven_Leafs says:

    omg that is my favorite stat of the night. And this coming from one of the biggest Gretzky fans. lol, Gomez.

  14. glotz_99 says:

    Ya I've never seen anything like that. If the Leafs lost that way the  conspiracy articles would be everywhere.

  15. hockey_lover says:

    haha .. I figured if there was a person around here who wouldnt get offended at that, it would be you 😀

    Not that it would have stopped me anyway, mind you. I say what I say and generally dont worry about it. But its nice when an attempted joke goes over as an attempted joke 😀

  16. dumbassdoorman says:

    Are you feeling ok? lol

  17. dumbassdoorman says:

    Wow a picture of how far a carreer has fallen if there ever was one. And, now we will have to listen to how Gagner is legit centre, blah, blah, blah….lol…he just scored more then a quarter of his season point total in one game though. As impressive as it was, he is still a fringe second line centre….until he shows me a ton more this year consistantly.

  18. LeafsNation4Ever says:

    Against Chicago too.

    What the *****, Gagner went beast mode on em!

  19. palindrom says:

    World of Warcraft have nothing to do with it.

  20. JoelLeafs says:

    Ha ha, there are about 50 players in the league that I would have expected this from before Gags. Oh well, good on him. Maybe he'll get a raise next year because of it… 😛

  21. JoelLeafs says:

    Wow is a palindrome. Palindrome isn't. Who wrote this language?

  22. dumbassdoorman says:

    Anybody who is having trouble finding a site to stream games, events etc. message me……found one offshore

    "In one game, he put up more points than Scott Gomez has all season…"

    Just letting you know, I stole that and posted it to a friends FB status.  But, I did leave the quotes.

  24. reinjosh says:

    Haha I may have probably should have put quotes myself…haha

    I saw it on twitter and just put it on here. I figure its stats and can be considered common knowledge so, stealing is a loose term 😛
  25. reinjosh says:

    Yeah man, one I know is still up but I'd like to know others. Stupid American Feds screwing us over 😛

  26. reinjosh says:

    He's about the norm for a second line center. Beforehand he was putting up about 0.5 PPG a game which is the norm for most teams in the league. Only like 4 teams in the league have a guy who puts up like a PPG a game on the second line. So on the lowend but still a second line center. 

    He's like most second line centers in this league. They are inconsistent.

    ADTHE works for me for the most part.

  28. dumbassdoorman says:

    i used to use forstrowsports.tv, it was seized…..lol…opened back up at firstrowsports.eu lol…over seas i guess?

  29. reinjosh says:

    awesome. thanks man. 

  30. glotz_99 says:


    they usually have 3-4 links to every leafs game, with the home and away feed.

  31. glotz_99 says:

    oh shit, they shut down firstrowsports.tv too

    atdhenet.tv is still going though

  33. Boston_Bruins says:

    Lol I remember ATDHE changed their address like 5 times before. There will always be something up, it's just annoying to dig it up.

    One strategy that also works is to go to the HFboards game-day thread of your team. There's usually always a few links posted there.
