Shipachyov, Miller and a pick for one of our upcoming UFA's and a medium prospect?

This gets Vegas out of their Shipachyov problem and you get some gravy because he has another year after this.

I was thinking along those lines but for Theodore instead of Miller and for a couple of our wing prospects and maybe a draft pick.

But (for example) would Anaheim have exposed Manson and Vatanen without a pre-arranged deal with Vegas made before they determined who they would eventually protect?

Per CJ the Leafs are still negotiating a potential trade with the GK, Lou wasn't subject to the informal trade freeze declared last night by McPhee because of travel issues he ran into.

So we simply have to outbid ANA/NYI/MIN on their steering deals.

Surely those steering deals went through beforehand  (over the weekend or Monday) but havent been announced as per league decision and so can't be gazumped?

Anaheim leave Vatanan unprotected. Initially was a bit disappointed the Leafs couldn't have got him for prospects/picks and Carrick or Marincin (under the assumption that Anaheim could have exposed whichever of those two instead).

But after thinking about it I'm guessing the only reason they left him unprotected was that they have done a side deal with Vegas not to take him.

Ok, so how about the previous Lehtera and a 1st from St Louis for a minor prospect if that was on offer and either draft a prospect or put it into the bank towards an alternative dman?

What about a 3 way trade that is something like :

St Louis gets JVR
Leafs get Tanev, Lehtera and one of STL's 1sts
Vancouver gets the other St Louis 1st, Gunnarsson and a prospect from St Louis and a prospect from the Leafs.

Feasible or cloud cuckoo land?

Reading on TSN that St Louis *may* consider trading a first to get rid of two years left on Lehtera's contract. If so, perhaps worth the Leafs pursuing, even if it is later in round 1? That first is then either another young asset or something in the bank to put towards a d-man in a trade.

Would have preferred the Leafs to sign Boyle as a UFA in the summer. Maybe this is a step towards that.

Is there a deal to be had with Anaheim and taking one of their bad contracts plus lesser of one of their D prospects in exchange for two decent forward prospects and a pick? Fair enough if this is a bit cloud cuckoo land...

^ that's kind of why I wondered. We give up some prospects and picks for a defenceman and then look to shift Bozak, Komarov and JVR to other teams to restock.

Prospects/picks for Tyson Barrie? Anything we can realistically offer that they would take without giving up any of Marner, Matthews and Nylander?

Was hoping we may be able to trade for a defensive prospect from the past draft or two. Provorov particularly (although I guess that's unrealistic now). Are there any others we may he able to get in a trade?

Out of interest why have the Leafs not invoked long term injury relief on one or more of Horton, Robidas or Lupul anyway?

Thanks for standing in Herman.

I see it was a difficult second leg for Toronto in New York!
