Ghost to Montreal?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have an opinion on any other team other than the leafs, or did i somehow get morphed in to Maple Leaf without knowing it?

 

Any thoughts on a Flyers trade?

The Leafs window is now open. They've got lots of firepower up front, some good pieces on D and a goalie (when healthy). Draft picks are for years down the road. 

 

 If you're happy with mediocrity...that's what they should do. Otherwise it's go for it time over the next few seasons. IMO.  Waiting for those picks to develop doesn't make sense to me when you have Mathews/Marner/Tavares(not getting any younger)/ Rielly/Muzzin/Anderson/Nylander etc. It's tweak time...not rebuild time.

 

I don't think their window is quite as open as it seemed last year.  This sounds odd considering how good they are up front, but they really don't have much on defense and they don't have much help on the way.  

 

In the off season once they pull a D man or two in, Then it'll open back up again.  They may squeak into the playoffs.  I don't mean that their season's done, I just mean that despite all the amazing talent at forward, they're not a terribly complete team right now and they're about to have some huge question marks making that completion more in jeopardy.

This is not a knock against Tavares but he had the best season of his career as a Maple Leaf. Prior to coming to Toronto, he was a 30-goal scorer who was around the 1 Pt/GP mark. Teams are willing to part with guys like that from time to time, especially as they approach their 30's (which proves that you can always add a good forward when you need one) but they don't usually part with defencemen.  :( 

 

 It wasn't the Isles decision to part ways with Tavares...that was his decision.

Well and that's the thing. You don't really have a championship calibre core group until you have a #1 defenceman among them. You can draft #1 forwards until you're blue in the face but until you get a #1 D-man, it's not going to be a Cup winning group. That's the problem in Toronto. We got Matthews, Marner, and co. (all good) but there's nobody on the blue line that is elite in that same way. 

 

 You also need a #1 centre. And goalie. Nashville has been a dman factory forever. They've had the goalie. They never had the centre.

The Leafs are in a tough spot right now. They're a far cry from Boston/Tampa, but they're also far from being Detroit. I think they're more than just a tweak away from winning, so I hope they don't do something stupid short term (with a rental player) that is going to burn this franchise for the next decade. We don't need to trade away any more future Dougie Hamilton's or Tyler Seguins for someone who is going to be here for two months. That's how franchises max out early and flame out. They need to keep the draft picks coming and keep the system stocked for sustained excellence. My two cents.  :) 

 

I like the idea of tweaking the team.... but just don't give away any draft picks to do it. 

 

 

 You don't have to trade away draft picks for rentals. You trade for players you'll have around for a few years.

Some package that includes Nylander for Doughty. Done.

 

Cup = Yours.

 

Not sure if it's that simple, but that is a trade that could bring them a lot closer.

They've got Rielly, Barrie, Muzzin, Dermott, Sandin. That's far from what I'd call "not much" on D. Actually, if they could land one good 2 way, they'd be looking pretty good. easier said than done, but that's a lot better than having not much.

Reilly's on LTIR and of the rest, only Sandin in under contract past this year.  

 

Reilly comes back in a month so that leaves about a month of the aforementioned squad together.  That's not a huge window.

I couldn't agree more. Drafting for need over best player available is a mug's game, and will always be so.

 

Fair enough.  😐 

 

5 hours ago, JR Ewing said:

a)  team needs are something that have to be addressed immediately,

 

But how? In a salary cap league, you're pretty much stuck with whatever you draft. You can't move guys out. You can't get guys in. You can't acquire someone in a trade without giving up the same or more in return. Every star player is locked down on max money/max term contracts and the players become almost unmovable.  :( 

 

5 hours ago, JR Ewing said:

b) the team's needs can change drastically between draft day and the time that player is ready to contribute

 

That's an excellent point, and while that applies to most teams, Toronto is a franchise that (like Edmonton) ALWAYS needs help defensively. You can't possibly draft enough defencemen for it to be overkill in TOR or EDM. It's not possible lol.  :)

Love that table.  :)

f you did your job well with respect to drafting and then developing players, those needs are usually towards the bottom half of the roster, so they're players who are relatively inexpensive and won't be signed long term. On July 1, 2018, the Leafs botched this by doing the opposite, and signing the best player available (John Tavares) which then left them in a difficult place to address need (value contracts spent on players who know that there are two nets on the ice).

 

They will be paying for that mistake for years to come.

 

I'm telling ya, this franchise will never have a Norris trophy winner in my lifetime. Toronto is a franchise that doesn't defend. Every brand has a "signature" and Toronto's signature in hockey is no defence. Their "brand" is 1980's run and gun hockey.

You would think Toronto and Nashville could get together for a trade right?  But it won't happen. Nashville isn't really looking for a #1 center any more than Toronto is really looking for a #1 defenceman. When a team need doesn't get addressed year after year, and decade after decade, you begin to realize that the team isn't trying to address it. Nashville doesn't play run and gun hockey. They never will. Toronto doesn't play defensive hockey. They never will. So those two teams will never make the obvious trade and swap center for defenceman.  :)

Doughty is a few years removed from his Norris trophy and wow has he ever sucked the last two years in LA. I wouldn't touch that with a 10 foot pole if I were the Leafs. He's in a state of massive decline. No thanks. No way. That's not the same Drew Doughty from 3-4 years ago.   :)

Ceci is out with an injury.... Toronto's best defensive defenceman. I wonder if that has anything to do with the recent struggles.  ;)

Ok, but I'm not talking about one shot. The team has a good nucleus for several years. That's why I also mentioned about not trading for rentals, but for guys to play there awhile.

Sure but it's not like they were going to trade either of them to Philly for what we wanted to give up anyway.

If the GM and the rest of the staff are doing their jobs right, you don't need to spend big bucks on free agents, because the needs aren't major. This is aside from another thing: of the big signings on July 1, most teams seem to regret it within the calendar year, let alone a long time down the road. The Leafs surely don't regret signing Tavares from the standpoint of his production, but that signing also crippled them with the cap: they signed him before signing any of their existing core, and it will hurt for a long time.

 

-------------

 

With that, I'll bow out of not talking about Ghost. I don't mean to take things too far off-topic, and apologize for my own part in it.

 Of course it's not the same guy....that's why he might be available. If he was prime Doughty, IE arguably the best defenceman on the planet, why would the Kings trade him?  And if they would you could start with Mathews, which might be defeating the purpose.

 

 His stats are down?  He's playing on the 2nd worst team in the league...who have scored the 30th most goals in a 31 team league.  He's still their 3rd leading scorer. He still plays the most minutes on the team. Think his points would go up playing on a pp with Mathews/Marner/Tavares instead of the tripe he has in LA? I do. 

 

 I'm not saying he's THE guy to go after (his contract would be tough) but he's the type of guy you want, and could possibly get.

Sure but it's not like they were going to trade either of them to Philly for what we wanted to give up anyway.


They’d be wise to consider Ghost (plus a pick for Kap) now or Hagg in the off season. 
 

they’ll want Myers or Sanheim, but that’s not happening. 
 

I’ll go a step further and say that if Fletcher should move Ghost now if he gets a good offer.  Definitely in the off season if not. 

 

It’ll be increasingly hard to get much for him throughout next year and Then Seattle will draft him for nothing.

Ok, but I'm not talking about one shot. The team has a good nucleus for several years. That's why I also mentioned about not trading for rentals, but for guys to play there awhile.


You’re a flyers fan.  How well does a good nucleus with one and a half d-men tend to work out?  
 

I’m saying they have this year if Reilly comes back strong and then they have work to do in the off season to maintain that window.  If they get 2-3 Decent D-men, the.mn they’ve got a big window open. If not, then they’re still searching for the key.

      The very last thing that the Toronto Maple Leafs need right now is to acquire a defenseman who needs to be sheltered at ES, and whom you then load up with PP minutes so he can get his points. He's literally the opposite of what they should be looking for.

      If anyone suggests Dale Wiesse or Jordan Weal,  I will hunt you down and gut you like a yard sale Ruxpin

      Write this down and memorize it. It may cure the delusion:   Ghost is NOT bouncing back as a Flyer. There may be hope that a change of scenery helps him, so that's where maybe you get something decent for him. But what you see is exactly what you'll get as a Flyer. His numbers as a flyer are past tense. Projecting them forward is silliness.    Move him. There are more kids right behind, so just do it.    And for the love of God, NO SCHENN.

      If Emery didn't go down with an injury I think they would have won the Cup in 2010.

      That one is the one that still haunts me.   That, and Lindros lying on the ice after the Stevens' hit.

      The Leafs window is now open. They've got lots of firepower up front, some good pieces on D and a goalie (when healthy). Draft picks are for years down the road.     If you're happy with mediocrity...that's what they should do. Otherwise it's go for it time over the next few seasons. IMO.  Waiting for those picks to develop doesn't make sense to me when you have Mathews/Marner/Tavares(not getting any younger)/ Rielly/Muzzin/Anderson/Nylander etc. It's tweak time...not rebuild time.
