3 Players to consider if the Leafs trade down from 15th overall

(or alternatively to the title, 5 Players that it would be great to see at the 44th overall pick) Given what we’ve seen in the past from Kyle Dubas, where he turned a pick that would be Travis Konecny into Travis Dermott and Jeremy Bracco, and much more appealingly where he opted to trade down…

Another Cash vs. Cap Advantage for the Leafs

The Leafs have a number of financial advantages. Unfortunately cap space isn’t one of them. While that means the Leafs will be limited in the extent of moves they can make, that doesn’t mean they don’t have different avenues they can explore, and one of them might be using salary they can bury on the…

Potential Buyouts the Leafs should consider signing

IT’S BUYOUT DAY! The fun thing about the Kyle Dubas era is that we don’t seem to be discussing what Leafs players need to be bought out anymore. Part of that might be because all the deals are structured to be buyout proof, but we won’t concern ourselves with that for another couple of years…

The Leafs roster by how they were acquired

For my own amusement I decided to take a look at how the Leafs have been constructed. How many players have they acquired through free agency, how many via trade, and how many through the draft. And most importantly, what round were they drafted in. The result is the graph below… These are the 22…

The Leafs depth will be tested if they spend big on Pietrangelo

At a time when the Leafs are potentially looking to spend $50M on 5 players, assuming Alex Pietrangelo is brought in, there probably needs to be some discussion about what the supporting cast looks like and honestly I don’t think the Leafs are in too bad of shape. The reality of the core isn’t really…

TSN speculates on who the Leafs would protect in the expansion draft

It’s a year away and there’s no shortage of events happening in the next couple of weeks, but TSN took a look at who Canadian teams would likely protect if their rosters remained unchanged until next summer. Now what we do know is the Leafs roster is probably going to change. It’s probably going to…

The NHL Goaltending Market and the Leafs

Hi there! Has it felt like we have talked about trading Freddie Andersen enough in the past week? Our apologies. We’ve been caught up in the possibility of Alex Pietrangelo finding his way to Toronto and that’s enough to distract anyone. Of course there have been a few things worth noting over the past week…

How the Leafs can afford Alex Pietrangelo

For months I’ve been telling myself not to get my hopes up on Pietrangelo, but the tides seem to be turning and I’m allowing myself to believe it may be possible for the Leafs to sign him. Yesterday, Pierre LeBrun had an article at The Athletic summarizing the importance of family in Pietrangelo’s decision, and…

How should the Leafs address their team toughness?

It’s no secret that the Leafs have been built to celebrate skill, and beat their opposition with speed and accuracy, and pretty goals. Though that hasn’t really worked a whole lot for the Leafs in moving beyond the first round of the playoffs. Seeing teams like the Islanders move on to the Conference Finals on…

Would the Leafs be wise to shop the Arizona sell off?

It stands to reason that when we first started hearing about teams wanting to keep their spending in check that the Arizona Coyotes would be one of those teams. The Arizona Coyotes are looking to slash about $10 million in payroll, don't have a pick in the first three rounds this year, no first round…
