Zbynek Michalek to the Leafs

First off, apologies to the regs on here for having to deal with another Leafs thread.

Now onto the topic at hand. It's pretty well known that the Leafs have been relying on AHL defensemen to log big minutes so far this season. Though we have a lot of defensemen, we don't seem to have that top-4 RHD that can log big minutes and play alongside Phaneuf. Every time I see someone mention this need, Michalek is always the first name that pops into my mind. I didn't want to make a proposal on here because I'm not really sure about his value to Phoenix's team at all. After doing a quick stat check, I see that he's fourth on the Yotes for defensemen in icetime, behind OEL, Yandle, and Derek Morris, averaging 21:08 a game. Another check shows me that he has only 2 assists so far this season.

With this being said, he is a defensive stud and I wouldn't mind seeing him on my favorite team. So, what is it? What do you guys think it would cost?

Cheap contributing forwards and high picks I'd imagine. Both things the Leafs cant afford to trade.

Not a fan of any of these teams so this is probably outrageous. But a three way.
Isles get Liles at 3 million (Leafs retain 1.2)
Yotes get Okposo
Leafs get Michalek

Isles grab a quality puck mover for insurance against losing one of Streit or Vish.
Yotes get a young scoring forward with some potential
Leafs grab their right handed shut down top 4 guy.

Don't see why the Isles do that.

Michalek has been great in Phoenix. He's seen quite a bit of time alongside OEL. IDK if Phoenix would be ready to move him.

Being a fan of both teams, I don't see a player in Toronto's system other than Kulemin who could really fit Phoenix's mold.

What about something like Kulemin and Liles, for Michalek and chipchura/moss?

No. He won't score 30 again but he's a big part of our defensive system...the same system that keeps our goalies from getting exposed as they did in the last 5 years.

I won't trade Kulie for Michalek.

I think he'll regain his offense as he has it in him. His wrister is unstoppable form the slot but he needs space which Kadri can provide him on his line. He's also our best forechecker.

We can't play everyone with Kadri.... we have other players who can score; we do not have other players that can play top-pairing minutes with Dion.

Still think Michalek would be an amazing fit beside Dion. From what I've heard, his game would balance with Phaneuf well.

I'd be willing to pay a good price for him, except I have no clue what PHX would want.

I want Giordano. Dion plays the right side and always has. Gio plays the left and is a home town boy.

A Leaf thread that won't go away!
So what is the overpayment? Kessel? Lupul and MacArthur?
And don't tell me about value when we are dealing with a player that is a good fit on the top pairing line and wants to be a Coyote because that is the true value that would need to be replace...

Any player from the Coyotes that is under contract with the 'Yotes next season should garnish a NHL player back. That's the bottom line. The economics of assets. Maloney is at a disadvantage to sign free agents, so he has to, at this time.

Zbynek Michalek has a limited NTC

any chance he names Toronto as one of the 8 teams he can be traded to

how does something around Frattin and Liles sound

Phoenix adds 3rd

Since it looks like the NHL head office has finally set a deadline for Phoenix's ownership situation to get resolved by I don't think they'll be looking to trade until it passes.

Why would the Coyotes want a d'man in return? I consider Schlemko better than Liles, and younger. And that's not to say that Gormley can step up next season... and to think you want the Coyotes to send a draft pick the other way... Their is absolutely no incentive to make that trade from a Coyote POV...

Michalek won't be moved until the draft at the earliest. He'd be hard to replace, so I'd imagine the asking price wouldn't be something palatable.

an overpayment of sorts and then eat some of the contracts. Yes it would not be feasible for the Leafs to even inquire about the availability of Michalek right now. Impeding UFAs may be available soon, though. Klesla would make more sense, even Schlemko would.

I'd like the Leafs to target Boyd Gordon instead. Shouldn't be that expensive and could really help our third line defensively.

I don't see them trading Z. He likes Phoenix and is a good partner for OEL.

And the Leafs apparently aren't into overpaying anymore (which is a good thing).

you wouldn't think he would be, but the interest should be notable. Chipchura should show some interest too (and he never gets mention, just like Schlemko).
