Team Explanation
Leafs get Marcus Foligno, a enforcer who can also contribute a bit offensively and is an indimidating presence, something this team desperately needs.

Leafs also get Jared Spurgeon, a great all around defenseman who can contribute a lot offensively and play amazing defense.

Leafs get Georgiev, a replacement goalie for andersen. Georgiev and Campbell can split starts throughout the season, which ensures both are rested and don't have a huge workload.

Leafs sign Joe Thornton, he can provide a veteran presence and still contribute offensively.

Leafs resign Jason Spezza, y'all know why.

It's a good attempt at the Leafs roster. But I really don't want Spurgeon for 7.5m X 7 yr. Assuming Nylander and Spurgeon are about even in a trade, that is way too much to give up for one year of Foligno.

Spurgeon for nylander is a super interesting idea for both teams
palhal and Ekaansh liked this.

Ok, so here's my problem with this trade idea.

Kudos for thinking outside the box on this one, that said.

Other than the fact Spurgeon has a full NMC, the Wild will be looking for a new captain post Koivu.

Our two leading candidates for the C next year?

Marcus Foligno and Jared Spurgeon.

Now, can anyone tell me why I have a problem with this?
