Why would you trade a first round dp for berglund?

Why is Nikitin playing on the Top 2? And Fayne on the last 6. Seems to me that Fayne is a complete shut down defenseman, and Nikitin, well, he is just big and can make physical plays. And if we do complete those trades, we will be left with no good picks whatsoever. Also, can't see Fasth going Craig MacT states clearly that there are not going to be any goalie trades anytime soon.
Should be Petry and a 1st, not Lander.

Why do the Pens need another goalie? They already have Fleury, Greiss, and Zatkoff. Not to mention they have Jarry in juniors.

And why would philly want a center?
Needs for both teams
29 Jul 2014 08:08:12
Take Hansen out put in a 3rd.

And the Habs do this why?
Alfie only if he doesn't retire. Also he doesn't have much left in the tank so I would switch him with Parenteau.
Alfredsson has already said that if he plays another season, it will be in Detroit.

Would take more from EDM. I say that as an EDM fan. Petry is a solid middle-pairing dman but he is only on a one-year contract and Markov is more of a top-2 in spite of his age. EDM would have to toss in at least a B-prospect and probably a mid-pick for MTL to consider it.
We have 4 LD and 3 RD currently that's okay for me
I disagree because Markov isn't even worth that much but also isn't worth just as much as Petry. Maybe instead a C-level prospect and a late round pick.
So trade a first pair D for a 2nd pair D? Sounds fair. not
29 Jul 2014 05:43:41
Badaj is (by far) the worst backup goalie in the league considering his contract. going to take more than him, an expendable prospect and a 3C to get Kane.
Swap Tokarski for Budaj, and chuck in a first rounder from the Habs and you got yourself a deal.

What a horrible, horrible trade that wouldve been. Edmonton gets a third-line center who is playing 1st line due to his chemistry with his buddy, and a later pick which would have been a winger (which they have too many of). Bozak would've been the 2nd coming of Horcoff on the Oilers. Are you sure you're an Oilers fan?
Serriously! Stop chirping. Nylander will be a better NHL player than Draisaitl and Bozak would be a no. 2 center on a pathetic Oiler team. It would easily be the Leafs getting the woorst of that scenario!
First of all Edmonton had the third overall pick not the fourth(Calgary) second chirp is a leaf hater who can't see Tyler bozak helping the oilers because he only thinks he knows hockey
Bozak would not be a 3rd line center. what a joke. look at his stats. people say leaf fans over value players, but you people under value so much. its a 2 way street bud
Oilers couldn't have done anything with the 4th overall pick because it belonged to Calgary. Oilers were 3rd. Edmonton has chosen their first selection in the top 3 four of the last five years though so I can see where this though comes from. Bottom line is Edmonton flatout sucks at player/team development so they should have tried to get an established player instead of drafting a kid who COULD be great, but might not develop to his full potential on a team where most players haven't gotten any better for 5 years.
Oilers fans cry and complain much more than they win that's for sure. Year after year, it's getting old.
29 Jul 2014 04:25:33
The more I read your posts, the more i'm going to skip your posts in the future because your proposals are horrible.
IMO it is not enough for Petry, but since this idea is from an Oiler fan, I HAVE to vote believable. Weiss has 8 points in the last two years, DET needs a right D-man, EDM wants to move Petry, it seems like both teams win.
Why@chirp is this trade horrible, because it fills needs for both teams or because it works under the cap?
How is a solid middle-pair dman for a center who's been going steadily downhill for years a good trade? Oilers could get a center of similar sliding trajectory from another team for less, and they probably wouldn't be getting paid as much as Weiss either. You act like all that matters for Edmonton is to get a center no matter what quality of a center it is. How about just trade Petry for Gomez, hmm? Think before you start running your mouth.

The NHL needs to relocate the Senators to someplace with knowledgable hockey fans, someplace like New Mexico!
Joe Pavelski and two second rounders for the best checking line in the league?. get real!
Not nearly enough for Pavelski
29 Jul 2014 02:49:46
29 Jul 2014 17:53:38
Would rather keep JVR. Both have 30 goal seasons except JVR's was last year.
Ok so in your mind reimer is the proven starter and pavelec is the decent backup?
29 Jul 2014 00:10:37
Oilers d would get an improvement, which is good. They'd definitely need it too because they'd have an enormous hole at center after trading away the best player to currently fill the #2C position unless they want to rush Draisaitl. They would never win a faceoff and therefore never have possession so the defense would be worked to death. This is a terrible trade.

Oduya is way more valuable to Chicago than 4th and 5th picks. Brunner trade is fair. Not sure on the last one, but I think Calgary wants Backlund in the future.
What? They would never give up Oduya for a 4th and a 5th that is not even that early, for all I know they might make the playoffs. And why trade Ward and get Ramo in return? You have a big goalie problem. And Brunner would never play on the 1st line on MY hockey team. He is a 3rd/2nd liner. And also IF that goes through, Carolina would be left with no depth picks.
This is bad, I can see Oduya & Brunner being dumps, but I'm pretty sure many teams would offer more for a decent 2nd pair Dman and a spiddy mid line forward. As for the Calgary trade, They have Hiller now, they won't spend 10m + on goalies alone, they have no need for Ward.
That CGY trade is ridiculous. Trading Backlund won't happen because Monahan isn't ready for 1st line C, Stajan isn't good enough. He's the best player in the trade and the trade would mean 8 NHL Dmen. Also sending down Lindholm is ridiculous. He had a great year. As good as Monahan

Not enough to make the jets move kane
29 Jul 2014 06:12:48
We don't want Kane! His attitude is worse than Keslers and there is no I in TEAM!

No interest of trading our Captain for one year of Boychuk and 2 years of Kelly, especially when Ladd will probably re-sign here and produces more
28 Jul 2014 22:42:06
Take Ladd out replace with Blake Wheeler and that's good
Putting in Wheeler is better for who? Boston! If Wpg wouldn't do it for Ladd why in the he11 would they replace him with wheeler??
As a leaf fan I wouldn't part with Wheeler or Ladd. Probably the 2 best players on the team
28 Jul 2014 04:50:40
JAGR said he could believe in another season after the upcoming one.
Rangers need to win soon. i'd deffs trade for Jagr

Eight player swings are rarer than rare. At any rate, Jamie Benn is untouchable. Personally, I can't wait to see him and Seguin play together again. They're like the (younger) Sedins with the chemistry and skill they possess. Nill knows better than to split a pair like those two up
28 Jul 2014 16:15:24
Habs give a 4th and stars give a 1st instead. This deal is stupid because it trades player for player type and there is no point in this kind of a deal.
I don't get this deal, it's a switch up of similar players, Montreal gets a whole lot younger in the process but Dallas loses it's franchise player. He is the face of the Stars and their captain. Pacioretty may be a 39 goals scorer, but Benn is close in goal scoring ability and likely a more complete player, he also brings lots of leadership. My two cents
28 Jul 2014 03:50:30
Isles have centers already, they need defense and they will not want back Streit or McDonald, Coburn is the only D-Man that they would trade for.
Islanders probably want a good dman instead of Vinny. They have decent center depth, but a weak blue line
Possibly L. Schenn or Grossman, but if you really believe the Islanders would want another center (especially one with an awful contract) when they have Tavares, Grabovski, Nielsen, Bailey, Cizikas, and Lee then give your head a shake. Find a different team to dump your problem on.
28 Jul 2014 02:10:41
If you want Duchene, you'll have to give up at least one of Beaulieu, Gallagher and Galchenyuk, along with a fairly sizeable plus.
There's literally no chance this happens.
Emelin, Tinordi, 1st
Avs demand a free 5th round pick for wasting their time with that proposal.
28 Jul 2014 16:15:41
I don't think Colorado would accept because they think that he's worth more and I don't think he's on the trading block.
Avs hang up the phone!
Duchene is going to cost you more then that, say goodbye to tinordi Gallagher and a high draft pick
How come when a leaf fan posts a big name coming to Toronto, it is an impossible dream, but ok for Montreal? Other than goaltending and beating the Bruins, there is not much that separates the two teams. Just curious
28 Jul 2014 18:51:20
Alright than. My two teams I cheer for, Pens and Leafs, offer the following for Duchene.
If u want him u would take more then that
Gibbons doesn't even play for Pit anymore.
28 Jul 2014 00:58:39
Dude, I´m German and can say, that this would be too much for EDM to get Goc.
What does you being German have to do with anything? I know Goc is German too but those two facts have zero to do with his trade value
