Team: 2016-17 Toronto Maple Leafs
Team Explanation
The leafs are in a good spot in terms of their rebuild. They have a lot of assets that they can use to fill out positions of need and get younger at the same time. Explanation for each trade:

Michalek, Polak, Greening & Hunwick, Laich and Smith:
All these players have more value to other teams, especially contenders that need depth incase of injuries so we flip them all for low round picks.

JVR trade:
Hamonic would solidify our top 4 and JVR would play with Taveres. JVR has more value then hamonic and with strome being in and out of favour in NY, it could be a good get. If it works out, great, especially if he plays with Marner. I get that Hamonic is "old" for the core but it gives us time to draft a Foote or even Liljegren this year and develop them to eventually pair with Rielly.

Bozak:
Boone Jenner is younger and comparable to a JVR replacement. Not as skilled but a decent option with a big body and good scoring skills. He would compliment the storm and Marner line well and is on a short contract so if it doesn't work out we are not tied down.

Komarov:
This one is the hardest because komarov is a really good 3rd liner but with the emergence of all the youth he becomes expendable. In return we get Ek Eriksson who would eventually replace Kadri in the future between Nylander and kapenen.

Manson: He is a right hand shot and most likely to be exposed due to the expansion draft. He can be had for the package I made but if another pick or prospect is needed we have the depth to do that with Bracco Timashov Rychel still in the system.

Not happening on the Jenner trade. CBJ would expect a better return than that.

There are a lot of unrealistic trades. Keep dreaming.

Garth Snow wouldn't even do a Hamonic for Hall deal, Do you honestly believe he would take JVR in a Hamonic deal no way.

I had a feeling, wanted to get some jackets opinions on it, but with the depth our prospect pool has I think we could make it work, also for larkinisking that was in the offseason when they were coming off of a playoff appearance and thought Ladd was what would push them over the top. Now it seems a lot like they are stuck with Ladd's contract and do not have that top line winger. Hamonic is great but with Pulock ready to jump into the NHL as well as the teams expansion draft exposure problems, somethings got to give. Also, JVR has 38 points in 44 games, is on a cheaper contract and plays nearly 4 minutes less than Hall each game who has 31 points in 38 games. If you put JVR on the top line and give him 19 + minutes a game, I'm sure he could be just as significant as Hall. Also Hall and Taveres are the same player to some extent where as JVR would be a net front presence.

Good ideas. Garth Snow was in a position of strength in the Off season but now:not so! I do think however, he might want to package one of his
bad contracts ie. Andrew Ladd or someone else in a deal that would feature a defenseman. Obviously if said player has a NMC or NTC he would have
to agree on the trade. Also, Bob Murray may have the same idea and even though Josh Manson may cost less than proposed, Kevin Bieksa might be included
;again per his agreement.
I don't have a strong opinion on Boone Jenner but, he maybe one less contract that would need to be protected in the Expansion Draft.

Wild aren't trading one of their 19yo high prospects for a 30yo, 4C (is what he'd be in MN) in Komarov.

You don't trade one third of your team and still expect to make the playoffs, especially when many of the trade returns are prospects. Strome a second liner centre with Leafs? He really can't hold onto a Job with the Isles?
