Van - TO

32 posts in this topic

To TO:

Lu, Alberts, Sauve, 2nd

To Van:

Rielly, Connolly, Franson

Toronto gets a much needed starting goalie, defensive depth, a D prospect and a high draft pick.

Vancouver gets a future offensive dman, defensive depth and a centremen. Connolly has next to no value but he only has 1 year left on his contract, offensive upside, can fill in at centre with injuries and may be a decent playmaker for Kesler. If Connolly doesn't work out let him walk at the end of the season. Capwise, it is fairly close.

Booth Kesler Connolly

An unproven prospect for a future HOFer and a high pick?? Seems fair. They want Rielly that bad, how about Gardiner. Gotta give to get.

Lots of insider info in the replies to proposals around here. Apparently it's common knowledge who is off limits and who isn't on every other team in the league.

I highly doubt Burke would give up Reilly.

However, Connolly is an interesting idea. He is one of the few players in the league that has next to no value and has offensive upside.

burke wont trade rielly hes a stud if he does he should be fired

and why would we want a over paid center in connolly at 4.75 mill a yr when hes injured more than salo was in his career

id rather have laps play second line minutes for 1 mill a season than him or schroeder or sign arnott at 2 mill all better options your post was insane if we are trading luongo wed get at best carter ashton or colbourne and a first rounder and bozak and at worsed ashton and a 2nd and komisarek otherwise why trade him

More likely scenario with Lu going to TO is Luongo for Kadri & Franson. If we have to take salary in return to make it happen, then likely it would be Luongo & Sauve for Kadri, Franson, and Komisarek.

Franson might sign in Europe because he isn't given a big enough role in Toronto, Connolly can fill in for us on the second line but I don't think he'll put up that many points for us. and Reilly is untouchable because he's actually a very very good prospect.

1.) Burke won't let Rielly go in a trade for Luongo unless there was something very enticing going to Toronto with Luongo. Besides, Rielly was the best player in this last draft. Just ask Burke.

2.) Connolly has a modified NTC, so he may not even be available to be moved by the Leafs. And he has issues, several of which have already been mentioned.

3.) Franson might be included in a Luongo deal as a throw-in, something to make up for Burke giving Gillis an asset of lesser value than that being sought. He could say here, and play for many seasons as a 5/6 d-man until one of the current top-4 moves on. This could be soon, depending on how Edler's contract negotiations proceed. Should he want to move on, at the very least he might bring back a 2nd round pick.

Lots of what might be on Giliis' shopping list is still unknown. We do know that the team needs a top-6 scoring winger, a 2/3 center who can put up points and also be good on defense. Improvements on defense are always nice, and if a guy who is better than the current top-4 is available for the right price then it would be nice to pick him up. Otherwise, the defense is mostly good except for perhaps another veteran depth guy.

For all we know, Gillis already have Jason Arnott ready to be signed. If this is the case, then any deal for Luongo might include a winger rather than a center.

And while this next part is a bit "pie in the sky", Kassian is doing well down in Chicago. If Gillis doesn't find a top-6 winger then he might just risk going with Kassian, particularly if there is a shortened season. Likely won't happen, but ya' never know.

So, if the about situations are in effect (Arnott/Kassian), Gillis might try and go with a larger amount of trade value in prospects. This could result in a return of something like: one of Ashton/Colborne, 2014 1st, rights to Franson, one of MacArthur/Kulemin/Bozak. There may be a prospect or swapped pick going with Luongo.

regards,

G.
