Leafs are reported to have offered a 5th for Glendening. The Red Wings countered with an ask of a 2nd.

Ok Blue Jays Talk / Re: Jays Roster Discussion
« Last post by sickbeast on Today at 04:45:17 PM »
So Donaldson is not signing here and he expects to be a free agent in August.  Hopefully the Jays can get something for him at the trade deadline.  If not they will at least get a compensatory draft pick.  I think with Guererro Junior coming up it kind of makes sense to let Donaldson walk.  Too bad.  He's an outstanding player.

Main Leafs Hockey Talk / Re: Soshnikov traded to the Blues
« Last post by bustaheims on Today at 04:30:03 PM »

 Wow! I had expected a little more than a 4th.
Me too!  Why do our Leafs always get screwed when trading with the Blues?  Why???

What did you expect for an oft injured soon to be 25 year old winger with 14 points in 70 career NHL games? The Leafs were never getting more than a 4th for him. That's exactly what his value on the trade market was.

Yeah, remember Jake Gardiner is a success story of a forward transitioning to D and yet he is an absolute bomb scare in his own end.

Gordeev has a long way to go to even be half as good as Gardiner, but the raw skills he possesses are exciting when you consider his size.

Hey ZBBM, I think your column point allocation is off on this one above...Brown won MotM, right?

He did, but it was in a loss so it's in the second column.  Nonetheless and I mean this seriously thanks for checking, it lets me know some folks are paying attention to the tally!

Ha!  Well, obviously I'm not doing to very good job of checking up, because all these years I thought that column for for those that got votes for MotM, but not enough to win!

Not the first time I've been wrong...

Gordeev moves much better than Rasanen.

Gordeev is exciting because he is a huge dman that is quick, if he can round out his defensive game, he will be a top prospect.

He's still learning about gap control and other defensive fundamentals for now though.
pretty exciting to think of having one huge great skating defensemen in a few years.  Even better if one of the others develops into anything.

Just looking at an article in the Athletic about what prospects teams can offer up in possible trades.  Of course when it came to the Leafs the names that came up could be expected like Johnsen and Lindgren  but what interests me is that "a lot of scouts are buzzing about Fedor Gordeev"
Nice to hear, one would expect it to be Rasanen

Can Leivo play in Komarov's spot? I would love to see that as a 4th line.

Kappy and Moore are good defensively but Leivo can hit the net when they are playing gin the offensive zone.
Seriously hope they move him by the deadline. Leivo would make it a more potenty 4th line and really wouldn't be giving much up defensively. He's an anchor on every line now. Unfortunate but grab something for him and move on. I'd do the same with JVR..We're not resigning him so get some assets for him.
Seriously doubt they would trade Komarov without even attempting a different 4th line first. I mean if Leivo had played for a healthy scratch Komarov for a few games to see how it went then I could see a potential trade, but Komarov always plays, doubt they'd suddenly move him like that.
