Forgive me for brainstorming another Maple Leafs/Kings trade idea, but since both the clubs I have followed my entire life seem to come together and make a big deal almost every other season recently why not begin to contemplate another one, this time BOTH clubs benefit and get something that both really need.

TO LOS ANGELES:

LW/RW William Nylander
* Age 24
* Cap hit: $6,962,366
* UFA 2024

G Frederik Andersen
* Age 31
* Cap hit: $5,000,000
* Pending UFA 2021

LD Travis Dermott
* Age 24
* Cap hit: $874,125k
* Pending RFA 2021

TO TORONTO:

G Jonathan Quick
* Age 35
* Cap hit: $ 5,800,000
* UFA 2023

LD Olli Maatta
* Age 26
* Cap hit: $3,333,225
* UFA 2022

LW Alex Iafallo
* Age 27
* Cap hit: $2,425,000
* Pending UFA 2021

To Toronto:
* $11,558,225 salary cap from LA
* Jonathan Quick without a doubt gives the Maple Leafs a true winner in goal, and if healthy Quick gives the Leafs their best chance to win a Cup with the current core and style of play. He is also reunited with Jack Campbell as Toronto's goalie tandem for the next two seasons. With the Leafs in win-or-bust mode right now, nobody fits the situation better than Quick.
* Olli Maatta at a $3.33 cap hit for another full season and a young age gives the Leafs a strong stay-at-home type of defenseman with already significant success winning in the East with the Pittsburgh Penguins. A defensive corps of Brodie, Reilly, Maatta, Muzzin, Holl and Bogosian is significantly better and hopefully is enough to make some sort of serious playoff push.
* Alex Iafallo adds another decent gritty depth forward for the Leafs (better than Vesey, Galchenyuk or anyone else the Leafs are thinking about), and as a pending UFA, the Leafs could think to re-sign the Western NY forward in case one of more of Thornton/Simmonds/Boyd/Spezza do not return next season.
* Toronto saves $1,242,266 in cap space used to help re-sign Zach Hyman.

To Los Angeles:
* $12,800,491 salary cap from Toronto.
* The Kings get much needed young speed and skill in William Nylander to add to elite prospects to build around and have cap space to use here (expecting someone like Carter or maybe Brown to be selected by Seattle).
* Freddy Andersen returns to southern California to mentor and share the net with younger Cal Petersen. Could be an excellent tandem if LA chooses to extend Freddy for 2-3 years, maybe $3.5/$4 million cap hit?
* Travis Dermott adds another young gun to an already young and dynamic blue line. Allows Toronto to give Sandin or Liljegren a shot at cracking lineup next season on bottom pair. Although Dermott plays too risky of a style he could benefit playing in a structured Kings system and help him settle down a bit and add some playmaking ability on the blue line. He would also get a better and fairer arbitration hearing as a pending RFA.

Yikes to that trade proposal. Toronto gets nothing.
March 19, 2021 6:42 PM ET | Delete
Well, just an idea...usually the Kings have gotten next to nothing in recent deals with Toronto. I think this one both teams get exactly what they need. The Leafs have this season and maybe the next two seasons to win something with this core. Someone has to go in order to extend Zach Hyman who I believe for the last few years next to Austin Matthews is the most important go-to guy on this team and way more valuable than Nylander, Tavares and anyone else in the top group. Only problem is that Tavares with his $11m cap hit is completely unmovable as is Marner at $10.5m and Matthews is your main gun. I don't think this Leafs group can win without Hyman whereas both Nylander and Tavares aren't guys who will help you win. Andersen needs to go, so might as well get something in return instead of letting a starting goaltender walk for nothing in free agency this summer. Unless you and others think the Leafs can win with Andersen, well so far he is 0-4 in playoff rounds and just as the Ducks how he did for them when he was there! Lit up by Chicago in the 2015 Western Finals...Jonathan Quick to me is still one of the best goalies in the world especially when he is 100% healthy. Even when he isn't 100% healthy his is still incredible and with 2 years left on his contract at age 35 he still has enough to lift a team to the highest level. I see this Leafs team with this season and maybe the next 2 as their window to win. It will be completely unacceptable to allow Austin Matthews to walk in free agency in 3 seasons. If this team still hasn't won a playoff round by spring of 2022, they need to maximize the value in a trade for Matthews instead of letting him sign with an American club for nothing because I guarantee he won't resign with Toronto if that is the case and incredibly likely he signs with a west coast American club (Anaheim, San Jose, LA, Phoenix, Dallas, St. Louis?).Maatta also give the Leafs a very team friendly contract for another season at just $3.33m. I hear that Mattias Ekholm is available out of Nashville but would you deal Nylander or someone like Liljegren, Sandin, Robertson for him right now? I guess I would, but Maatta is younger and cheaper. Iafallo has also been rumored with the Leafs as a gritty depth forward so I threw him in there along with Dermott who seems to be getting worse instead of better and may be a better fit in LA under their structure. Plus the Leafs need to free up some more significant cap space as well.

Leafs get a week off, and already down 2-0 less than 10 minutes into the game (at home). Tavares cannot complete a pass, either color blind or plan sucks. $11m for him, a total bum and never won anything and who's game has gone to hell in a matter of two seasons! And "Freddy the Great" already has a 50.% save percentage!!! Justin Holl has reverted to a fringe NHL defenseman, there's guys in the damn ECHL who are stronger than him right now! Yea, this team is good enough !!
March 19, 2021 7:29 PM ET | Delete
Not to mention that tonight's referees and linesman also aren't ready for the game, completely missing an obvious icing call that leads to a goal on top of two vicious slashes from behind from turd Tkachuk and Lucic ... both not called at all! Unacceptable start on so many levels!

Message PostedMaybe after two more pathetic losses to the Flames at home this weekend, Dubas will finally make a deal to strengthen the team's grit/defense/goaltending or all of the above. My trade proposal above or something similar to that helps all those areas of need. Keeping a group of Tavares, Nylander, Andersen, Dermott and Holl together equals another first round loss for sure! All of those guys guilty as all hell in the first two goals of the game. None of them help you win but definitely help you lose games!
March 19, 2021 7:34 PM ET | Delete
Thank God for guys like Spezza and Simmonds! Guys who play hard and help this team win!
March 19, 2021 7:36 PM ET | Delete
Absolutely pathetic and irresponsible for these refs to allow Matthew Tkachuk to get away with everything tonight short of stabbing someone with his skate!! My god call something!!! This jackass could've and should've been in the box 3 times already and the game isn't yet finished the first 20 minutes! Ridiculous!
March 19, 2021 8:43 PM ET | Delete
This is some of the worst, most pathetic officiating job I have seen in a long long time in an NHL game. Eric Furlatt and Brad Meier should be absolutely ashamed of themselves. This is pure horse **** work tonight. Both should be fined/reprimanded by the league offices tomorrow. Unacceptable! Might as well find a couple senior citizens who are blind on scooters ref the second game of this set tomorrow.

Leafs can get way more then this for Nylander. Maatta at $3 mil a year, pass... Quick is too injury prone and not worth nearly 6mil a year, not at his age. Dermott can go... Andersen is done in Toronto after this year... Maatta blocks Sandin and Liljegren more then Dermott does, especially with his salary.

This is the type of trade Brian Burke would have made to strengthen the Maple Leafs. Bring in a declining goaltender and a couple of easy replaceable plugs. These players are about a desirable as the disposable Chevrolet Colorado being marketed by tekibyza. No one wants them. Meanwhile the Maple Leafs would be giving up the only valuable player in the deal.

Leafs have better forward in the deal. Leafs have better goalie in the deal. D man are kind of a wash. While quicks numbers look worse than alot of the play. This just aint it. I get it. Your a fan of both teams. Trust is. Leafs could get Iafallo if they wanted. And its been rumored. But this is isnt even playstation do able for LA. Nylander alone is worth more than all 3 LA pieces. And im a Kings fan.

Not to be a dink, but this might be the worst trade proposal of all time.1. If you're going to pay Quick $5.8 million for two more years, you may as well resign Freddy. He's younger and arguably better and could be resigned for $4-4.5 mil. 2, Willy's not going anywhere. He's certainly not going anywhere for Alex Iafollo, Nylander was/is not the issue on this team when things aren't going well

This deal offers the rebuilding Kings much of what they need: an escape from Quick's horrendous contract, a 25 to 60 goal winger with upside and a useful 5-6 defender. The Leafs would get strangled by Quick's contract (they would immediately need to ship him to "Robidas Island" for his due retirement), a useful but generally mediocre players in Iafallo, and a 3.3 million defender to slot behind Reilly and Muzzin on the left side - too much for 10 minute player. This proposed deal would be tremendous for the Kings while immediately closing Toronto's cup window.
