<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Caniac2000</b></div><div>Pesce is a 1st pairing right hand D man. Nylander is a good 2nd line winger. He's a top 15 - 20 D man in the NHL from an analyical perspective. Probably higher. So yes. Nylander would be the starting price. Then when you add in Pesce's MUCH lower cap hit and term. Again, don't wanna give up Nylander? I understand, you don't get Pesce.</div></div>
If it was Nylander it would be straight up, nothing more from the Leafs... the thing about the Leafs is that they have 2 1st lines and no real 2nd line. If Marner wasn't a Leaf, Nylander would be the #1RW and would have even higher numbers and vice versa. Saying Nylander is a 2nd line RW is like saying Pesce is a 3/4Dman, it's just not true.
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Caniac2000</b></div><div>Ovi, Tarasenko, Kuch, Kane, Guentzel, Benn, Marner, Teravainen, Laine, Stone, Panarin, Wilson, Landeskog, Marchessault, Tkachuk, Draisaitl, Hall, just off the top of my head. If you gave me some more time I could come up with more. I know some play both sides, so I named a couple more than 15</div></div>
I think you take Benn, Wilson and Marchessault off this list. You're not going to like this but Teravainen too, Nylander is a better scorer than he is and they're putting up similar point numbers. Maybe even guentzel, his career high is 76 points and Nylander is on track for something quite close to that this year.
Nylander for Pesce is fair, but I think Kapanen, the pick and Liljegren are pretty damn close in value. Kapanen has 25-30 goal ability and given the opportunity I don't see why he can't be as good as Nylander. Great speed and is a good PK'er. Liljegren is a top-4 D prospect, could possibly be playing that role as soon as next season. Picks are magic beans. Just my thought
