Lupul To Van(Proposin' & Supposin')...

Don't SHOOT the messenger. I merely saw this on HFboards, having been rumoured...

 

Sbisa to TO, for (drum roll)...

 

Loopy.

 

They've got 3 2nd's next draft. What if they gave us one of them?

Lupul's got 2 more yrs remaining, at a LOVELY 5.25 mill cap-hit. Clarkson-ish bargain!

 

He's always LTIR anyways, so it's like acquiring Bolland, or somethin.

The guy can spend his months here, trying to explain his chicken wing to Hanky. Wonderful existence.

 

Don't know about this one?..would probably take the 2nd to pick up the phone. Thoughts?

Isn't Lupul healthy now or at least will be healthy at the start of the season...

 

Anyways, Lupul did some pretty good things a couple years back so I wouldn't mind taking a stab at a low risk venture like that especially if it means that we can pick up a 2nd rounder and a prospect as well.

Loopy with 50% retained by the Laffs plus their 2nd  (their highest one ) for Sbisa and I still say they win that deal.

 

Imo Sbisa is underrated and gets a bad rap here.

AS am I. plays sound in his own end, believe he was a +5, not bad considering he was forced to play above his game. Maybe someday but not yet is he top. Now that being said i would trade him if it was a trade that really helps i would like to see a bottom 6 of him and subban or groot and subban. We have a glut of stay at home type guy's Sbisa out of groot pedan and biega would have the most value imho. Still i think Edler or  tanev are gone before him. I hope not in Edlers case I think he has a bounce back year with guddy here and a hopefully better pp

If this deal is about getting an albatross contract and decently high pick in order to lose a perceived dead weight, I don't agree to it.

Before reading what you wrote I thought that it might have been a buy-low on Joffrey which I would have been down for as gambling to get a potential 2nd line forward, but seeing how he's now increasingly injury-prone and his performance has been declining, I wouldn't want to do this deal as we'd essentially be trading Luca for a 2nd while potentially losing cap space to get the future asset (the pick). 

 

Maybe aim for a less injury-prone but still underachieving potential top-6 forward who's hopefully still youngish?

Agreed. The thing I 've observed about Sbisa is that he is a big guy who makes big moves; he isn't subtle or deft in any way. So he'll make broad, sweeping attempts at making a play and most of the time is successful, but when he misses the mark, we notice it more because of the style of game he plays. With Sbisa we have to accept that he is an average defenceman who can sometimes do above average things, but not frequently enough to cover up some of his big mistakes. But I think he is absolutely an NHL defenceman.

I actually like this proposal. Especially if Torontos 2nd is included. 

 

Van:

Lupul (Another Tiger)

TO 2017 2nd

 

TO:

Sbisa 

Retain 2M of Lupul Salary

 

 

 

and just why would toronto do this??

you think they will trade lupul, eat enough contract to make him cheaper to the nucks than sbisa, and give us a 2nd round pick ?

i kinda think they will not be interested

if he is made of glass.... leafs will simply store him away on the ltir and pay his contract, and keep their 2nd round pick

 

edit: and if he really is made of glass the leafs would essentially be giving vancouver a 2nd round pick plus cap room ... .. and the chance that lupal might play . and his is more talented than sbisa when healthy
