While I don't think the salary would work (unless a 3rd team comes in to take on some cap for a pick), but...

Taylor Hall?  Or will he cost too much in terms of assets?  I know he trains with Matthews in the off-season, so I wonder if there's a fit there.

Between the asset cost, cap hit, and the Sabres being a divisional opponent in a normal season, I'd be hesitant to make that move. Don't want to give direct competition pieces for their future.

We'd actually save on the cap!

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 but...eh.

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.

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.

FWIW:

"Potentially" may be doing some heavy lifting here.

I like Nick Foligno. He's nasty out there. And a local Sudbury boy. That being said, I'm not sure I'd give a first up for him. Even though it would be great to see him leap like his old man after scoring an overtime winner for the Leafs
