Some moves the Leafs could try to work out…

I kinda wanna get some non-Leaf feedback, so if we could get this onto the main page, instead of the Leafs page, that would be appreciated.

The Leafs have alot of issues to work out. Mostly on defense. Lets look at the first deal. Wozniewsky, Antropov, Allison, Czerkawski, and Harrison for CuJo and Doan. I don’t see this, unless the Coyotes see some potential in Harrison and Wozzy, and are disappointed with Doan’s season and think they can fit Chow in somwhere like the Isles did.. The Yotes are a classy organization though, and if CuJo wants to go to Toronto to win a cup (like he has hinted he’d like to do.) then they’ll try to get a deal done. Doan is having a bad offensive year, but he’s a good 2 way forward. A little over rated. But right now, I’d say either Morris or Gauthier would make more sense then Shane Doan in that deal.

So the deal, I’d say should look like this.

To Toronto: Curtis Joseph, Derek Morris

To Phoenix: Jay Harrison, Jason Allison, Mariusz Czerkawski, Andy Wozniewski

The next deal rumored is a three way deal sending Belfour and Arnason to Edmonton, for this to happen things would prolly look like this.

To Chicago: Alex Khavanov, 2nd Rounder (Toronto), Racine,

To Toronto: Jason Smith, Ryan Smyth

To Edmonton: Ed Belfour, Tyler Arnason, Matt Barnaby, Aki Berg,

A little unrealistic for Smyth to be traded, possibley Horcoff, but Smyth I don’t see being moved.

The last deal I’ve got to look at is the Malone deal… Antropov and a 4th for Malone. If you can do it, do it, but I doubt the Penguins would do something like that.

And so you’ve got the Leafs looking like this.











*Or Horcoff

This team, if it stays healthy, could be a good contender for a decent playoff spot. If I were the Leafs though, I’d hope to go no higher then 6th, Carolina isn’t as hard to be as Buffalo (5th) and if Carolina keeps ahead of the Flyers, even the 7th spot may be good. Right now, I think these deals are a little far out, but I’m kinda just making adjustments to rumors I’ve heard, so don’t freak out over these.

    heck, while we are on the subject of preposterous moves, lets try this one which involves two Albertan teams:


    Leafs trade Antropov and Belfour to Edmonton for Bergeron and Markkanen.

    (leafs get a young defenceman and will have a tandem of Tellqvist and Markkanen in net while Edmonton gets Belfour – who’ll play better behind Edmonton’s D – and Antropov who can play either on the wings or at Centre and is having his best year yet as a pro).


    Leafs trade Allison and Klee to Calgary for Jordan Leopold.

    (leafs get another young D-guy while Calgary get a 2nd and potential 1st line Centreman while also getting Klee who would be a solid #5 D-guy).

    some of the reasons why these trades won’t happen:

    1) JFJ just isn’t that smart – these deals are just too good for the leafs considering the implications for this team in the coming seasons (re: a young core of defensmen).

    2) Calgary and Edmonton are both reluctant to take on larger salaries (re: Allison and Belfour)

    the leafs line-up would look pretty good. the forward lines wouldn’t be to bad considering Lindros’ increased role as a 2nd-line Centre. The D would be improved and the goaltending tandem not much worse then what they have now:





    [Belak, Pohl]




    [Coliacovo, Kronvall]

    Quick, let’s get JFJ on the phone as you guys clearly have deal worked out with Lowe and Sutter!

    Listen, i’m as big a Leaf fan as any, but does anyone ever realize this sort of thing (fantasy trades) is what gets Leaf articles posted in this area na not the main site. Even Leaf fans don’t come here much, just LeafyMcLeaf and BeLeAf????, etc.!!

    Change Antropov in the Oilers trade to Stajan, I think Stajan has more trade value, but I think Antropov is the better player.

    hey come on, you’re being negative. I enjoy reading the fantasy trade proposals.

    remember it only takes one negative person to bring down four positive people.

    I hear on the neagtive thing, and I do like hearing possible trades, but a lot of these are not thought out and frankly, I get tired of both reading the ensuing wars of words after one of these posts and I find due to these sorts of fantasy trades, everyone on this site who isn’t a Leaf fan automatically writes off anything that is said about the Leafs because of the handful of Leaf fans that post these fairytales…a few bad apples are ruining the bunch man and giving us apples a bad name!
