Team Explanation
Everyone on here is OS marner, and for good reason. However wouldn't the leafs like to guarantee players that are in positions of needs instead of just getting draft picks that COULD turn out to be something?

I like this for both sides.

here me out on this. II know to some leafs fans this won't even come close but hear me out and offer your opinions in the comments. Jacob Trouba is the type of player the leafs have been looking for for a long time. A top 2 shutdown dman RHD who is still capable of putting up solid offensive numbers. In my opinion that covers roughly half to 65% of Marners value. With Ehlers in on the trade, he can act at as a poor mans Marner but still young with lots of potential still. Jack Roslovic can be plugged in right away as their number 3 center and can develop behind Matthews and Tavares. The picks in to sweeten the deal and I figure it must be somewhat close. IT may seem like a lot to give up for the jets however they fill one of their biggest needs for a long time in a true #2C and a player who can feed Laine the puck for the duration of their careers.

Obviously Trouba signs a long term contract if the trade is even considered (like the Mark Stone deal). For the people saying TrOuBa wOnT sTaY iN cAnAdA, his hometown of Detroit is like in the back yard of Toronto. So that shouldn't really be an issue.

What amazing depth at forward too bad you won't get past the first round with that ****ty defense, and you have no money to improve in that area for a couple of years

Me too, Leafs really do need strong defense if they want to contend

well lets be honest here, Myers isn't that big of a loss. The guy is a turnover machine.

yea, but you have lost two of your three RHD and not to mention Byfuglien is only getting older and will only be good for another season at most

That could be an interesting trade and I could see how it helps both sides.. but it's conditional on Trouba wanting to play in Canada. Is there truth to that rumour that he wants to play in the states? Because if that's true, and he walks in a years time as a ufa, then the leafs essentially traded Marner and Kadri for Ehlers and Roslovic. That'd be a bummer.

But it is an interesting idea, and one that the leafs might really need to explore if Dreger in fact wasn't just blowing more hot air today..

Too bad Marner wants McDavid money. And for the last time Trouba doesn't want to play in Canada what part of that don't you understand?

You take this way to seriously my guy like relax. This is just an idea at the end of the day. What is the percentage of this happening? Like 2%. Like idc what insider information you have at the end of the day it’s up to Jacob Trouba, not all of us talking on this site where he’s going to go or not.
