<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>superbrett</b></div><div>This. It will take at least Kapanen, Liljigren a 1st and another piece or two especially if the Leafs are looking to dump a contract like Zaitsev's. Look at the Mcdonaugh trade between Tampa and NYR last year as a template. Pietrangelo is more valuable then McDonagh. Although and the Leafs wouldn't be able to take on a JT Miller type while also looking to dump Zaitsev's contract. If they were to mirror the NYR/Tampa trade from last year:
Liljigren (I think he is a better prospect then Howden who was either #2 or 3 in Tampa's top 10 last year, although I may have my Leaf glasses on)
Kapanen (On par with Namestikov coming from a life long London Knights Fan)
Adam Brooks (I couldn't find Libor Hajek on any top prospect list and I don't really know much about him. Brooks is the 12th top prospect for Toronto according to leafsnation)
2020 1st round pick (2019 is gone)
2020 2nd round pick (become 1st in 2021 if Toronto wins SC)

Pietrangelo (Better than McDonagh)
If Robby Fabbri was better or Jaden Schwarz was worse

As it stands they DO need to add that Cap Dump and they can't afford another forward contract back that doesn't expire at the end of this year. It'd be a tough one to get done. Maybe they don't need to add the conditional 1st/prospect and take back someone like Pat Maroon(another London Knight Alum!) So it would be:
Liljigren, Kapanen, Zaitsev 2020 1st round Pick 2019 3rd round pick


Pietrangelo, Maroon

Is that fair or do the Leafs need to add more? I know Maroon has a limited NTC. I tried to follow that trade template from last year. I don't know if Zaitsev is at the place where he has negative value yet but for this trade to work he needs to be traded. Maybe each team could take $1 mil back so the he is only $3.5 mil for the next 5ish years?</div></div>

I think that the above trade equates to Pietrangelo + cap dump for Zaitsev, THREE 1st round picks, a 2nd (potentially ANOTHER 1st), and a 4th?
Only 1 of the firsts should be required (Kapanen, Liljegren or the pick) IMO.
