<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>palhal</b></div><div>Actually I thought Kerfoot was a logical candidate for trade. His 750,000 salary for the year after his 2,750,000 bonus was paid would have made him attractive to some teams.
But Kerfoot has M NTC list. In a cap strapped league, it's really difficult to trade a player without taking equal cap back in a trade. And even if a team with cap is willing...the M NTC might come in effect. (Muzzin is a M NTC next season which might make him untradable)
We know the Winnipeg is team with most players have listed as "no trade" team.
Now I admit Kerfoot for DeMelo makes sense, if the Leafs feel DeMelo is a big enough improvement over Holl or Liljgren to make the move. (I don't but that is subjective). But the other factor as Leaf fan, I would hate to lose Kerfoot because if there is an injury to Matthews or Tavares, the Leafs don't have any centres with "offensive flair) to take over at 2C.</div></div>

Sorry for the late response it's my weekend with the kids and had to get them too sleep. In my last response I meant to write I would rather have Demelo for only 1 more year instead of committing more future capspace to someone like Murphy.

I agree Kerfoot seemed like a logical trade piece this last offseason and that's part of my point this fromt office hasn't showin the willingness to make the uncomfortable trades needed to put this team in a better spot to compete. What did the 92-93 blue jays and the 2019 raps have in common?... thwir FO made the uncomfortable trades needed to put their teams over the top. IMO MLSE cleanse house this offseason and we get a FO and coaching staff who actually hold players accountable.

Muzzin is untradable because he can't stay healthy moreso than because of his modified NTC next year IMO.

Demelo and Holl are both similar in the fact they can both play 20mins a night against the oppositions 2nd and 3rd best lines but Demelo is signed to a reasonable deal for next year whereas Holl is not and will likley cost more. Also, Demelo uses his size to his advantage more/better than Holl and this team needs that for the playoffs. I'm not talking about goons or him dropping the gloves just utilizing his size more to our advantage during on ice play. It's more about the cost certainty going forward and the fact I don't think we should be big head hunting this deadline. This isn't our year and IMO we'd be better served building up the floor/depth of this team for next years run rather than chasing big stars and Demelo fits that bill. I'm only going to bat for him for the same reasons you do for Holl and I do for Rielly.

Keefoot doesn't really have that much offensive flare but I get your point. Personally I think this core needs a shake up though. People talk about continuity with the raps different than the leafs because that core has won whereas this core hasn't made it out of the first round in 6 tries and counting. We have a good team but even you must admit we should have seen more changes by now.

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>palhal</b></div><div>First your opening line scenario is not true. OK, so if DeMelo is brought in which would be marginal upgrade, what would the Leafs have to give up to get, and fit hdtm to the cap strapped Leafs, this year and next? So many trades don't consider cap considerations (hence the title of this website). And so many just dismiss Muzzin and Murray and really have them on career ending LTIR.</div></div>

You literally shutdown every trade proposal posted on here saying every player on other teams aren't as good as ours are. Teams with good players do trade them at times based on where they are in their competitive cycle. Perhaps I came across the wrong way ment no disrespect just gets tiering constantly hearing the sane thing when trades happen all the time and value isn't always even because one team is looking more for futures or depth.

Second I mentioned Kerfoot going the other way who costs 3.5 mill and Demelo is 3mill so I did think about the cap I always do. Next year would be the same albeit with the cap rising by 4mill but even if it was flat it would still be 500k less than Kerfoot. Also, how would Demelo me a marginal upgrade? Who else do we have besides Muzzin who plays his gritty style and isn't a hindrance to the team? And who else could we get who brings what he does for the same or less $ without gutting our farm system? I mean that whole heartedly as I can't think of anyone else. The part of this deal that I could understand ppl having issue with is the 3mill of salary cap commited to next year. For that reason I like Demelo more than Murphy because I don't feel comfortable commiting that much future capspace to a player who may or may not fit in in our system. If you want a rental I get it and nothing wrong with that if so Dumba might be available.

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>T0R</b></div><div>Holl shouldn’t be here he is a 7th D but even Mete has looked better, I rather move Brodie to 2nd Pair with Sandin where he won’t get burned out by Rielly's Mistakes. Get a real physical shutdown D-man to pair with Mo that will allow his offensive game to Flourish. These are all hypothetical so why are you complaining</div></div>

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>NHLfan10506</b></div><div>Klingberg

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>palhal</b></div><div>Not complaining....but is real physical shut down Dman even included in this list? Physical doesn't necessarily mean good, or even good value.</div></div>

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>T0R</b></div><div>Yes i only did Top 4 RHD, I will do 3rd pair in a separate AGM</div></div>

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>OldNYIfan</b></div><div>My sentiments exactly. To which the only thing I can add is that I don't think tht Toronto and Los Angeles are good trade partners right now because LA's biggest need is for the 2015 version of Jake Muzzin, and there's no one like that on the Maple Leaf roster.</div></div>

Guys what about Demelo? He can play top 4 minutes, is physical, can block shots, isn't a liability on the ice at least IMO has a reasonable deal and would help the leafs immensely again IMO. Also, pretty sure we could make a deal work AROUND Kerfoot-Demelo NOT saying it has to be a 1vs1 but I think Chevy and Dubas can figure out a deal that works for both sides. Also, Holl could be part of a package if the want a rhd back.

Just saying... thoughts?
