      These are board specific rules, meant to try to make the Trades and Free Agent Signings forum better for everyone. YOU MUST READ AND ABIDE BY THESE FORUM RULES.

      1. If an event happens, wait a few minutes before posting, in all likelihood, someone has already posted it. We don't want numerous threads on the same event, so please search before posting.

      2. Please provide a clearly identifiable topic title for your thread so that user's can search for and find the appropriate thread easily. The title should include any and all teams involved, as well as player names or other personnel involved as appropriate. This is to help avoid duplicate threads and to make searching easier. For any and all comments, please use the Topic Description box instead of the title.

      Affixed to the front of your title should be a label that identifies the type of transaction that is taking place. For all trades use [TRADE]. For all signings use [SIGNING]. For all waiver-wire transactions use [WAIVERS]. For all rumours use [RUMOUR].
      For articles or news that don't fit into the above categories, affix an appropriately label of your choice such as [NEWS], [ARTICLE] or [MISC].

      3. All trades, signings, rumours and other news MUST include a linkable source. Simply posting the name of the source is not enough. Effort should also be made to copy and paste the full article, or at the very least the relevant portion of text from the source to the first post of the thread.

      4. Clearly misrepresenting the contents of your thread or posting false Trades/Signings/Acquisitions to send the forum into a frenzy will be taken very seriously and will result in an automatic suspension.

      5. Please put all proposals into the proposals forum and NOT this forum. Proposals found in this forum will be moved or deleted without warning.

      6. Please report any threads or messages that violate these or other board rules to the administrators or moderators() Do not respond by posting spammy messages such as 'IBTL', and 'LOCK AND BAN', or by attacking other users. The report button is located to the bottom left of every post.

      Thank you for your co-operation and please PM one of the Moderators or Administrators if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions regarding this forum.

113 posts in this topic

in the early days of the shortened 2012-13 season it appears he may be poised to struggle through his most difficult season in a Leaf uniform yet.

Kessel had 82 points/82 games last year & 64/82 the year before.

So far has 2 assists/0 goals in 5 games this year.

Interesting speculation, but I would be very surprised if the Leafs move Kessel, to be honest.

Damien Cox talks a lot without thinking about the consequences, but it is an interesting point - esp. the part about Nonis having no need to protect the deal.

If Luongo is moved to a different team, maybe the Canucks could move some future parts for him, if that's the way Nonis is going to go.

A package something like:

1st round pick

Mason Raymond

Prospect

Asset acquired in a separate Luongo deal (another pick?)

Burrows - Kesler - Kessel

Higgins - Schroeder - Booth

Malhotra - Lapierre - Hansen

That would be a deadly bottom-9 going into the playoffs and great depth, esp. if Schroeder continues to get more comfortable at the NHL level. Probably also important for Nonis to try to move Kessel to the West conference.

Same, especially after committing to Lupul long term

The guy had 82 points last season. He's off to a slow start and they already believe he shouldn't belong in Toronto? LOL LEAFS!

Speculation's just fine, although I'm not too sure Nonis agrees. Granted, the potential raise he might be interested in might be prohibitive to the Leafs wanting to keep him, but unless they get significant return I don't see how they can move him without it being seen as a total loss (even though he's putting up points).

Luongo + some prospects/picks for Kessel would seem to make a lot of sense for both teams.

No way in hell TO moves Kessel. They lost too much for him. Seguin and Hamilton and a 2nd is what they lost for who they considered the franchise player. TO didn't give up that much so they could trade him in 3 years.

Kessel is UFA at end of next season.

I've always thought he would leave as UFA. If I was Kessel there is no way I re-sign in TO.

Man, TO gave up their future for this guy, why would they let him go?
