Leafs And Scott Laughton

Created by: TheLeafsSeason
Initial Creation Date: Jan. 26, 2021
Published: Jan. 26, 2021
Team: 2020-21 Toronto Maple Leafs
Description
NHL Rumours Daily: "Back to rumors today because there’s been some things “philtering” through some back channels if you catch my drift..."

"I tried to be funny... it was Philly... not Phil Kessel... some of you overthink everything!"

Considering Laughton is from Oakville, ON with a manageable cap hit, the trade would make perfect sense, and the type of player the Leafs need

@TheLeafsSeason-Justifying a trade by where a player was born further proves that your transition to a Habs fan is almost complete!

Also, Nhlrumoursdaily is essentially a tabloid-type "rumors" site. I'm surprised that they don't employ Eklund.

He never missed on a rumour he announced publicly, and all of them were right. He was the first to report about NBCSN shutting down months ahead of the official announcement date, but you should know this already.

Holy overpay. Kings will give you red hot Jeff Carter 50% retained and Moore back if you want to trade Lilly... Want Iafallo and AA too?🤣

Let's make a deal for Lilly instead, who do you want from the Kings? We can do better than Laughton😝😂

I mean, just looking at last week, he said that there was a 1st going to Winnipeg along with PLD...

Don't ask me, ask Dubas and his interest in upgrading the forward depth according to Saturday's headlines

Oh I was confused since you posted this and claimed Laughton was the type of player the Leafs need.

I'm going off of what was rumoured for the Leafs, which is having an upgrade in our forward depth, and I'm seeing who is the best fit. In my opinion, Laughton fit's that description

If you also want to know how well recognized they are, Barstool talked about this twitter page during one of their podcasts and how he is breaking numerous trades, NHL updates, and overall takes that other insiders "would never know"

I believe the saying goes: "Even a blind squirrel finds a nut once in a while!"

I feel like the Tahoe rumor was something that Friedman was talking about last summer, but who knows.

I'd rather just have Vesey in the lineup for way less cap hit. His production is similar or slightly better than Laughton anyways. There's no reason to trade away Lilly right now, especially with the team winning.

The usual brutal Toronto trade posted by Habs fan. Not really a good cap trade, plus to give up the dependable Engvall and a soon to be RHD Liljegren with years of control for one year of Laughton....so bad for the Leafs. Now maybe when Laughton is a UFA next summer, yea he might be a Leaf.
