Where does he go? With the above in mind, I pulled up some info about teams throughout the league. I didn’t search for who I thought needed a player like Nikita Zaitsev – I searched for a team that might think they need a guy like Nikita Zaitsev.

I didn't even consider Detroit as a possible trade partner, but they make a lot of sense as a possible destination.

Canucks are reportedly interested in Zaitsev... Leafs reportedly want a defenceman in return for Zaitsev... Canucks are reportedly stopping Tanev...

I'm a lot cooler on Tanev than I was a year or two ago because of his continued injury issues, but this is still something that makes sense for both sides I think.

Agreed - the injury history scares me a bit, but he's exactly the type of player the Leafs need; a shot suppressing d-man.

LOAD MANAGEMENT.  Get Tanev in, don't overwork him- we can make the playoffs with him not playing a full season- and have him 100% for the playoffs where we need him at his best.

Also nice to have an expiring contract, maybe we can re-sign him on the cheap due to injury problems, and if not we're out of Zaitsev overpayment.

Not directly Zaitsev-related anymore, but if Connor Brown can net Jesse Puljujarvi, then this should be done right away.

So some package of Zaitsev and Brown and picks?
for Matt Benning, Puljujarvi, Khaira(?)/picks

Zaitsev for Tanev, Brown for Pulji, Kapanen for Pesce, dump Marleau's contract, sign Corey Perry for cheap. LETS GO
