Possible Matt Martin trading partner?

Sounds like the Rangers, and other teams, are going hard after Ryan Reaves. Hopefully Dubas can offer up Martin to whoever loses that "sweepstakes".

Komarov has been linked to the Rangers, he's a character for sure.

We were talking the other day about getting a little more jam in the lineup...anyone have interest in Patrick Maroon?

According to tsn.ca, he's got about 6 suitors or something, which makes it much less interesting given the price will likely be driven up beyond what he's worth on my cap.

He's coming off a $2m cap hit, he'll probably get, what, $4?

Matt Cane's prediction model has him getting $5mil+.

I think he'd be worth a look if paid sensibly while acknowledging that there's a a snowball's chance in Downtown Toronto that he gets paid sensibly.

Not a massive surprise here, but Mirtle's reporting that the Leafs will turn their attention to Derek Ryan if Tavares passes.

If that's based on anything even semi-recent it's probably not a great sign.

Is he any better than Bozak?

They're probably pretty close. Ryan's a more well-rounded player while Bozak has a higher offensive ceiling (although they were fairly close in scoring last season). Ryan will also come cheaper than Bozak. Matt Cane's model has him at $2.4mil, but there's multiple teams after him so I could see him getting $3mil. As long as it doesn't come with big term it's a fine contract for a more prototypical 3C.

I guess we'll see, but at 170lbs, and only 153 NHL games at 31 years old, I'm wondering if last year was an outlier.

I'll be really disappointed if this is what we're counting on behind Matthews and Kadri.

I just want to say I like Derek Ryan, but I see him more as a 4C. Nylander moves to center if the Leafs miss out on Tavares.

 Calgary might take a look at Martin.

So now that you've got Tavares in the fold do you maybe get real aggressive about going out and getting a defenseman?

I'm not sure who's available but I think you could still keep the big 3, excuse me, big 4 and put together some pretty attractive packages by skimming maybe a little bit of depth/offense off the top.

Say...a 1st, Brown, Grundstrom and Zaitsev? Or even be open to the moving of Liljegren?
