It's believed Ott/Col/Nash were in discussions on 3 way trade involving Matt Duchene going to Sens. Talks have ended. No deal.— Darren Dreger (@DarrenDreger) November 4, 2017
Word on three-way: Duchene to OTT, Turris to NASH and not exactly sure on COL. Ekholm’s name came up, but no certainty he was in final deal— Elliotte Friedman (@FriedgeHNIC) November 4, 2017
But wait! The insiders couldn’t help but continue to change their tunes about what didn’t happen.
Last note: Turris (NASH), Duchene (OTT), haul of picks and maybe prospect or two (COL). No Ekholm.— Elliotte Friedman (@FriedgeHNIC) November 4, 2017
I can’t remember the last time a three-way trade of ANY kind happened, let alone one where three significant players (or not?) got exchanged between three times. I’m just thankful that this deal didn’t happen, as it certainly seems like Ottawa would have wound up making out like bandits in that deal.
Thankfully, it fell through and we can continue to laugh at them for continuing to be mediocre (he said, nervously).
ON TO THE LINKS!
We put together a list of the best plays from the Leafs’ season so far, which if you haven’t already seen is worth reliving. Spoilers: if after watching Matthews’ videos you are still aroused after four hours see your doctor.
After that list was put out, Matthews went and absolutely dangled noted shit-head goalie Jonathan Quick out of his diapers in one of his two penalty shots from Thursday night.
James Mirtle from The Jock points out that two of the Leafs’ hand-wrungiest signings this off-season have been pretty awesome. Marleau has 5 goals and 4 assists plus a cool 54.31 CF% at even strength, and Ron Hainsey has 9 assists and an even better 55.69 CF% (possession numbers from Corsica).
From MLHS | ICYMI, Garrett Sparks set a Marlies franchise record for all-time shutouts by a goalie in their win over Laval this week.
The Leafs Nation writers all share how panicked they are about the Leafs’ recent run of losses if you like roundtables.
AROUND THE NHL
In sad news, news came out that Kerry Fraser was diagnosed with cancer. Yeah yeah high stick etc, but fuck cancer.
The Oilers beat the Devils 6-3 thanks to McDavid, who is pulling away from Zach Hyman to Fulemin’s fury. But you know what’s even better than three assists? Not scoring any points but racking up those Truculent/60 stats.

Have a great Saturday y’all!
Who do you think would have won the Duchene-Turris-Ekholm trade?
