Leafs Set to Shop William Nylander?


Recommended Posts

Brady Skjei straight up


Two years ago, maybe.


Now, you'd have to get really fancy just to strike a deal. The Leafs can ill afford to take back contracts, let alone salary.




You're probably looking at a deal centered around an unsigned prospect like K'Andre Miller + picks.


Or, if you're willing to eat a bunch of contracts coming back, maybe you can build a deal around more cost-controlled players like Buchneivch and DeAngelo?

Right. I was looking there.


Cap Hit: $94,177,537

Upper Limit: $81,500,000


Over limit by, $12,677,537, which they have $12,800,000 in LTIR to offset.


Hyman coming off LTIR adds 2.25M back in which will put them over the cap. Hence, they need to clear space for it, but if they deal Nylander's 7M hit they create plenty of space for Hyman plus whatever they take back in a Nylander deal. Of course, Skjei's contract value is more than the difference, but I don't see why the Rangers couldn't offer cap relief for this year on Skjei's contract to make the numbers work.


Skjei at 50% rest of year, and say Lias Andersson for William Nylander and a pick.

This presumes they want Brady Skjei. Why are we presuming this? Because they don't already have enough defenders who can't keep the puck out of their own end/net? And Lias Andersson, why? So he can watch Nick Shore play, too?
