Team Explanation
So, someone brought this up in an earlier post. And I know this is going to take some heat, but just think about it before pouncing with negative comments. I am not saying the value is equal. But it is a trade that could really work and make Toronto a very scary team. This could also help Florida with a more dynamic player on their PP.

According to almost every non Leaf fan on here, Nylander is worth a right handed defensive defenceman who would never make more than 4 million a year and the Leafs will have to add a 1st rounder.

Why you ask?

Because reality is for idiots.

Thank you, I actually enjoy going back and forth, so please I want to know your opinion. I see the value of Hubs and Nylander as being close, that being said Hubs has proved more, SO FAR. Of course Psysk is better but thats why I said there may have to be some adding, and I did think it would have to be the Toronto side, but this is close. In my opinion of course.
