Re: The Leafs Need to…

The leafs need to do the following:

-add a solid offensive LW, to complement Sundin and Tucker

-add a second-line center to replace to Peca, and to give them more depth down the middle.

What I suggest:

1) They should definitely go after Nagy, and he would fit perfectly on the first line with Sundin.

Trade: Nagy to T.O., for Stajan and 3rd round draft pick (or they could trade back the 4th round pick they got, for Tellqvist)

2) As for second-line center possibilities, I like either Smolinski or Sanderson. Because Sanderson has one year left on his contract, at 1.5M, I favour him because he would not simply be a “rent-a-player”. When healthy, he can still produce, albeit he is 35. As well, he can play both center and the wing, which adds some flexibility for the team, while Smolinski plays only Center.

Trade: Sanderson to T.O, for Bell & Antropov.

These would both be cost-effective moves: At 3M, the leafs would be getting Nagy for under 1.5M, which would be absorbed by Stajan’s $800,000 contract. Sanderson, is only making 1.5M (which means his cost would be $750,000) and Bell plus Antropov are 1.4M, which gives them even more flexibility. Doing this, the leafs would not need to change anything on D or in Goal, and up front they would look like this:

    i dont know, i like stajan i dunnno if i want the leafs to part with him, but i guess if its for the best for the team then they should.

    anyways this post isnt about this post. my account is messed and i cant make new posts….

    Do not go to his autograph session if you want any gear signed. he would not sign my jersey! i say he would not sign my jersey!

    Did he say why?…l know "no" is a players favorite anwswer, but l'm surprised, l thought Peca turned the corner here in T.O

    You forgot Steen in your line up. Sanderson for Bell and Antropov is the worst trade I've heard in a long time. I wouldn't give up just Bell for him.

    well, peca didnt say anything, the cops wouldnt allow him to or something, they said too many things 2 sign. i didnt want his pic i just wanted my jersey signed. peca looked at me for like 1 sec lol. all n all im glad i have his autograph. but if i knew he wouldnt sign my jersey i wouldnt have waited an hour in the bitter cold b4 he even got there for it! im a bit disapointed about that. but thats the way she goes! :/

    What makes you think Tucker is good enough for the top line? Hes a 3rd liner.

    Just to let you know, Tucker is a left winger, not a right winger… and Nagy was already dealt, lol.
