--- Quote from: herman on February 28, 2021, 11:17:22 AM ---I think enough question marks have opened up in Jones? game that I am wary of allocating that many assets. I am sure we could fix him, but not while he is somewhat overvalued around the league.

Well, the trade there is if he were playing more at the level of a few years ago there's no way you get him at that price.

And I don't think the asset cost is that high. Kerfoot is a real player, sure, and you downgrade prospect wise but Jones replaces and improves on Holl and the difference between a Toronto 1st and Columbus 2nd shouldn't be that many spots in the draft.

Guilt Trip:

Some idle thinking but with the talk of Columbus looking to make moves:

To CLB: Justin Holl, Alex Kerfoot, Rodion Amirov, 1st round pick

To Toronto: Seth Jones, Kiril Marchenko, 2nd

I suppose on the surface it doesn't look like a great haul for Jones but you're really only getting a year and a half of Jones before you have to pay him(and that will be a weird negotiation). Meanwhile the Leafs add some toughness to the top pairing and can afford things for a little while. It's a big give in terms of futures

I don't think Jones is enough of an upgrade on Holl defensively. Add in that we have to give them Kerfoot and exchange a 1st for a 2nd? Both Kerfoot and Holl have 2 more years after this one, Jones has 1. I'm leaning towards no.

The value isn?t terrible, but I have definite concerns about the drop of in perforons Jones this season. Could it be that, like so many others, he?s just done with Torts? Maybe, but at that cost, I?m not sure I?d want to take that risk.

To Toronto: Nick Foligno (50% retained by Columbus AND Chicago) + 4th Round Draft Pick CBJ
To Columbus: Alex Kerfoot
To Chicago: 5th Round Draft Pick TOR

To Toronto: Scott Laughton (50% retained)
To Philadelphia: 2nd Round Draft Pick + Nic Petan + Mac Hollowell

To Toronto: Jamie Oleksiak
To Dallas: 2nd Round Draft Pick DET
To Detroit: Travis Dermott

Foligno - Matthews - Marner
Galchenyuk - Tavares - Nylander
Hyman - Laughton - Mikheyev
Thornton/Engvall - Spezza - Simmonds

Rielly - Brodie
Muzzin - Holl
Oleksiak - Bogosian

Campbell - Andersen

Heroic Shrimp:

Believe the #Leafs, #Avs and #caps are among the teams potentially willing to part with a 1st round pick in a Foligno deal - and that list may not be conclusive.— Frank Seravalli (@frank_seravalli) April 11, 2021

"Potentially" may be doing some heavy lifting here.
