Lots of interest in MacArthur, but Toronto is in no rush to move in. Leafs need players.
Leafs fans, do you want to keep MacArthur and re-sign him or would you be willing to trade him and what kind of return would you expect coming back?

It's obvious the Leafs need roster players and Burke is looking into acquiring another forward based on his conference call on the Versteeg trade last night. MacArthur's cheap and it's looking like he'll be having a career year in all scoring categories this year. Which teams could be interested in acquiring him?

I'd say the Penguins would be a good fit if the Leafs feel that they could trade him.

KingBuzzo 02-15-2011 09:05 PM

No, I don't want to see him go. He's a great player and is on a line that's consistent due to chemistry. He'll get resigned at 3. something. I'm not too worried.

Scoogs 02-15-2011 09:06 PM

We always seem to have that one player in a situation like this. This time with Mac, it's on a bigger scale.

It would be interesting to see what kind of return you could get for him. But I'm hopeful that it's not a fluke and he can contribute 20 goals, 50-60 points with regularity. Also, a hard worker. My first choice is to see him re-signed.

bobbyflex 02-15-2011 09:06 PM

MacArthur is not going anywhere. Not only is he leading the team in points, he's emerged as a leader in the locker room and has fit in really well in the top 6. Versteeg didn't which is why he was traded. MacArthur stays

Chandrashekhar Limit 02-15-2011 09:06 PM

Re-sign unless some team grossly overpays. He has great chemistry with Grabo and Kuly, and wants to stay.

Megan Fox 02-15-2011 09:06 PM

He shouldn't be traded unless some team wants to flip us a good center who can produce with Kessel.

Nazem Gretzky 02-15-2011 09:07 PM

I like him a lot but I wouldn't be opposed to moving him if the right deal was there.

MoreMogilny 02-15-2011 09:07 PM

I don't want to trade MacArthur at all.

He has been great for us, and is the ideal type of player we need here.

Im Old Gregggg 02-15-2011 09:07 PM

mac fits in REALLLLL well here, most fans wanna resign him as long as its a 3-3.5 caphit

it would take massive overpayment to trade him imo, worth more to us than any other team

Dark Knight 02-15-2011 09:07 PM

MacArthur is a player who has played extremely well, but I'm very scared of one year wonders. Although, his chemistry with Kulemin and Grabo have enabled the Leafs to have a very consistent second line.

I won't look to move him unless the offer is too good. I doubt a team will give a mid 1st for him, and I won't trade him for a 2nd.

Toronto won't trade him, IMO.

Kessel>Seguin + 02-15-2011 09:07 PM

He has been good this year, but I dont see him being more than a average of 50 point guy.

If the Leafs can get a 1st or similar prospect take it. if not hold onto him

seanlinden 02-15-2011 09:08 PM

Its games like tonight agaisnt Boston that really show why Toronto shouldn't even consider trading MacArthur. The quantity and quality of no-look and behind the back passes that his line made today was off the charts....

Toronto has their 2nd line, they need to put together a first.

jablueblue 02-15-2011 09:10 PM

Garbo, Kule, and MacArthur should be going nowhere. That line can dominate at times and brings it game in and out. All three feed off each other and replacing MacArthur wouldn't be worth the trouble.

McArthur is better than Versteeg and pretty much the same age. Burke needs to KEEP McArthur and let him play with Kuli and Grabo.

Jaysfanatic* 02-15-2011 09:11 PM

Blow Toronto away with an offer to move him. He'll be tough to pry outta Burke's hands.

How did Kuli and Grabo play when Kessel was on their line?

He makes that line tick. Kinda like the Briere, Leino and Hartnell lie in Philly - none of them are as good when playing with other linemates.

Don't mess with it, if it isn't broke.

Oroku Saki* 02-15-2011 09:15 PM

Leafs should be looking to keep him. He's a nice piece to have, especially if he can contribute like he has been with regularity.

Moller, Toronto's choice from Teubert, Hickey or Muzzin and a conditional draft pick (if LA re-signs MacArthur).

really? Grabo and Kulemin played fine without him. They've got chemistry, but you can't use 4 games of a line trying to find chemistry to one that's already been established.

Man Bear Pig 02-15-2011 09:16 PM

You'd have to overpay to get him meaning we'd rather just hang on to the guy. Mac has had amazing chemistry with Kulemin and Grabovski and I think most would agree we'd love to keep all 3 around in the future as our second line when we eventually make a playoff push. Give these guys another season together and they'll only get better. First time in a while where we've had a legit line in Toronto where every player is contributing.

Live in the Now 02-15-2011 09:20 PM

MacArthur is the kind of player Lombardi seems to covet. Could see us offering a nice prospect and almost NHL ready prospect + pick non-Schenn package for him.

HappyGilmourr 02-15-2011 09:22 PM

Macarthur relies on Grabovski and Kulemin. They don't relay on him. That being said, it is a good fit. If he wants to sign for under 3 million he can stay. If he gets greedy then I'd trade him. But he's a good fit right now and is a legit top 6 forward. I would only trade him for a roster player.

The questions with MacArthur are some I've been asking since he started producing. Is it due to the team he's on + a career year in a contract year, or at 25 is he finally getting it? He's had success at other levels so it's not out of the question.

It comes down to dollar figures. I'd give him Versteeg money on a short term to see what he can do. The luxury Toronto has, in a sense, is that he's an RFA (I believe) so they don't have to move him at the deadline. Maybe a team steps up and gives him an offer-sheet in the summer. In such a case, it would again come down to dollar figures.

I think it would take a big overpayment unless Burke knows he's not re-signing him. He's just a strong fit right now and fits the age bracket.

even if there is an offer sheet, I'd consider matching. It depends on the team.
