Trade Announcement!!!!!!!!!!!!!
#21
Frederik Andersen was originally a 7th round pick Happy

He didn't sign with Carolina, re-entered the draft 2 years later and was taken in round #3 by the Ducks...but he was originally selected in the 7th round.

Some stats:

27.1% of players drafted in the 7th round (or later) in the 1995 to 2005 drafts played in the NHL. Only 11.6% played in over 100 NHL games.

Enroth cost us whatever little we've paid him to this point.

What? 3 or 400,000?

Same with McElhinney. Got him for nothing.

And then we snag a 7th round pick as well.

Sure, long shot, but it's a shot, and it shows the fans that they are pretty serious about winning this year.

Babcock is going to push them for a playoff spot.

I couldn't be happier with how our group operates. Both the players and management have exceeded my expectations for this year.

Leafs and Ducks sure do love making trades with each other.  Only a matter of time before JVR gets dealt there. Grin

Absolutely not.

I would trade Hyman for Ritchie straight up. Ritchie's ceiling is much higher than Hyman's IMO.

this may very well be true but you would be hard pressed to find a guy like Hyman who has an engine or heart as big..!! he is your total definition of hard hat/work boots type of player and I do not see Ritchie being that type of guy..and we need Hyman more than Ritchie..

No way would I deal Nylander yet.

Not even for solid defensive help.

Not yet...He's way too young.

I want a three headed beast... Not two.

We can get help on D with other players.

I'm not sure I would trade Ritchie for Hyman. I'd have to watch a bunch of Ducks games.

Would anyone trade RW Kasperi Kapanen in a package for a top 4 D-Man? Not sure I would without a fair look at the NHL first with the Leafs!

http://www.tsn.ca/tradecentre-primer-exa...s-1.648332

TORONTO MAPLE LEAFS

Status Report: Seventh in the Eastern Conference in points percentage (.564).
TradeCentre Trending: Sticking to the Shanaplan
Top Priority: Top-four defenceman
Trade Bait: LW James van Riemsdyk, RW Kasperi Kapanen, RD Frank Corrado, Bevy of draft picks.
Scoop: With one more year left on his contract, JVR will generate a lot of buzz leading up to the trade deadline, but the Leafs are in no rush to deal him. In fact, a trade in-season is unlikely — and it remains entirely possible van Riemsdyk remains in Toronto for the longer term, depending on his production and price. Toronto has an upper-echelon defenceman in Morgan Rielly. Rookie Nikita Zaitsev has been impressive. But the Leafs need to flesh out their backend with more top-four blueliners. Kasperi Kapanen, who has 32 points in 31 AHL games, could be a starting point in a return package — the one young player left out of the NHL fun in the Leafs’ organization so far this season.
GO LEAFS GO!!

No.

Sorry but if THE THRILL turns into JUST a top "4" D-man I'll b f'ing livid.

He almost single handedly won Pittsburgh a cup. I want a top 2 dman.

Maybe they're confused with him and Nik Anthropov?

I would hate to lose Hyman because I love what he brings too. But I think you have to choose the player who makes the biggest positive impact overall. Ritchie is a tough boy to knock off the puck and has 25+ goal upside.

Anyway, kind of a silly discussion since Anaheim would never make that trade.

McElhinney is a solid backup who knows his role. I follow Columbus some and while I expected way more from Enroth, McElhinney is the steady guy we need. His numbers from last year when everything went wrong badly skew his career numbers.
