<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>CoachCoach</b></div><div>You don’t see TML fans trading Knies for superstars on here. Part of the reason you don’t see it is because he is your top prospect. Toronto fans are too busy trading Holl, Kerfoot, Muzzin, Robertson, and every 1st and 2nd to worry about trading other prospects.
As far as this trade, in no way is ANA trading McTavish AND Zegras. You do realize it is both of them, not one or the other. If it were one and another prospect, or multiple picks, other players, etc. more people would understand your side.
As far as flipping is concerned, you don’t seem to understand the point. Zegras has established himself as a top young player. He could fall off after year one, but you can’t just assume after last season that happens, or he stays lateral and doesn’t improve. McTavish will be a Duck this season, and will be a 1-2 C for years, offering 2 way play and could very well be the future captain.
Please enlighten us all since you started to say you could flip Marner for more at the deadline unless it was “grossly messed up.” Give one scenario or one realistic trade at the deadline with Marner going to a contender for better return than MM/TZ/2nd rounder.</div></div>
You're right but Robertson could still be Toronto's best prospect, people just have fatigue over hearing about him (which is understandable). Don't worry, the Knies fatigue will come in 1-2 years and you'll see people looking to trade him for superstars on here as soon as the Leafs get a newer, shinier prospect.
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>CoachCoach</b></div><div>So they overrating their prospects, yet you and other TML don’t do the same with Robertson, Hiro, Topi, Arbz, etc.?
Again, you are looking at it from ONE perspective. You see 34 goals, 97 points, 25 years old. People outside Toronto see a very skilled, elite winger. They see robin to Mattman.
You look at McTavish and Zegras and see two players that don’t give Marner’s value currently. Others see two potential number 1 centers, or potentially one of the best 1-2 center punches in the NHL for the next 10 years.
You even said flip him if need be…. Why the hell would you take two top prospects (one already proven in the nhl) and trade for a super star, to turn around and try and get more prospects lol. It makes no sense. What are you flipping marner for that will get you more than MM and TZ? Also, retaining salary? Which teams are already ineligible due to not being able to take 5-10 million? A lot of questions that you don’t have answers for.</div></div>
Just wanna pop in and say that I think the Toronto media hypes up its prospects too quickly. A guy like Robertson is following a completely normal development curve, while battling through two really brutal injuries and putting up elite 2-way numbers in the AHL. Only a handful of guys are doing better than him (such as Jack Quinn).
LMAO kissing their sister, so unhinged :tearsofjoy
Like, Leafs can win a round without having to add another star player... MAYBE. Bringing Tampa to 7 shows that they should be able to beat a less potent team. We'll see what happens, I guess.
With the Leafs, it's a different problem every year why they lose, imo. Bad defense, bad forward depth, bad coaching, stars don't show up, no depth scoring. Worse goaltending every year, too. But it's not always the same reason why they lose.
The Leafs' flaws will be exposed this season. If they need more punch up front, maybe a trade like this is revisited if the Canucks get off to a bad start, but I think the Canucks will surprise some people this year. Pettersson should have a bounce back year, and another year of development for Hughes + the added depth is really nice for them in a weaker Pacific division.
