NYI: Bartkowski and Worsofsky
27 Aug 2014 12:38:48
1. NYI have no 1st in 2015
2. WTF? They're barely worth a 3nd or 3rd together.
Wow, when did Bartkowski become a top 2 defense man, guy is a borderline NHL player, and Worsofsky will be a career AHL player as he is too small to play NHL defense.
27 Aug 2014 06:35:27
BOS: 2 and 3
27 Aug 2014 06:33:04
CBJ: Bourque, Plekanec, Thrower, Nygren
MTL: rights to Johansen, Rychlel and 3
27 Aug 2014 12:39:07
Not even enough for johansen.
27 Aug 2014 06:28:24
WIN: Please, Moen and Nygren
VAN: Bourque, 5
MTL: Higgins and Hansen
Terrible, you have overvalued Habs players.again.
27 Aug 2014 02:23:11
SJ: P. Marleau, 4th rd 2015
MTL: T. Plekanec, R. Bourque, M. Nygren
Extra: Brown, Desjardins, Scott
Extra: Hannan, Nygren
It gives SJ a C that can take on any 1st line in the league and also a 60 points player. Bourque adds depth on the LW and maybe another or two great playoff performances. Nygren is said to be ready for NHL level.
MTL takes on a LW leader with still 70-75 points potentials seasons and gets the chance to put Galchenyuk at C with all the tools he needs to succed.
27 Aug 2014 00:41:18
Apparently dustin penner may sign a tryout contract with the canadiens
They don't sign a tryout contract its a training camp invite that's it
27 Aug 2014 00:38:45
To EDM: Plekanec
To Montreal: Nail Yakupov (3rd,4th if needed)
Edmonton gets their 2nd line center.
And Yakupov's position can be filled. Multiple of players in the AHL/depth can take Yakupov's 3rd line role. When Draisaitl gets ready. What will I do then you ask? Well, he is a center naturally. But we can try to teach him to play winger. OR, Plekanec to play wing.
Enough? Not Enough?
EDM: D. Perron
MTL: T. Plekanec
I would never trade away a first overall pick this early. Yakupov has the second most points in his draft year (to early to judge players) he's had an off season (sophomore slump) albeit a terrible plus minus but I wouldn't trade ovechkin away.
27 Aug 2014 08:05:12
More like 1st/2nd needed to be added by the Habs
26 Aug 2014 22:43:29
Trade: Hansen to Winnipeg for a 2015 3rd and 2016 6th
Sign: Jamie Mcbain
Extra:Ryan Stanton & Yannick Weber
26 Aug 2014 22:25:37
To EDM: Torey Krug
To Boston: 2015 4th Brad Hunt, 2016 5th
Boston doesn't have the cap to sign him. And the Oilers could use a guy like Krug on the PP and top 4/6.
Enough? Not enough?
Complete random trade.
27 Aug 2014 08:06:05
Krug would be a good fit in EDM but that would even get the Oilers one of his hockey sticks
Wheelin n Dealin
26 Aug 2014 17:44:40
Kessel, Phanuef, Bozak
Johansen, Rychel, Savard, 2nd
Lupul, Reimer, Ashton
Not enough for Kane.
The Leafs get worse as well
Leafs lose big time on the first trade. Nylander also isn't ready for the top line. If anything it'd be JVR/Johansen/Kane.
Nylander on the 1st line is a joke and if u think you can get Evander Kane for that trash then that's a problem.
27 Aug 2014 01:26:07
Leafs need to add.
Throw in 2015 first, 2016 first, and 2016 2nd.
Columbus might think about it.
Good idea if you want mcdavid. You actually made the leafs worse.
26 Aug 2014 18:04:44
If Franson improves his defensive skill and is a positive +/- and Lupul continues to put up dominant points:
TOR: Lupul, Franson, 2nd, Biggs,
TOR: Lupul, Franson, 2nd, Biggs, Percy
TOR: Lupul, Franson
Devils: Larsson, Clowe, 3rd
TOR: Lupul, Franson, 2nd, Biggs
Wrote this up pretty quick without going into specifics or cap, in general though, enough or not enough for which?
26 Aug 2014 20:54:42
"If Franson improves his defensive skill and is a positive +|- and Lupul continues to put up dominant points:"
Here's an idea. If they both do those things how about don't TRADE THEM?!?
26 Aug 2014 21:41:16
if franson improves his defensive play and lupul continues to put up dominant points why bother trading them at all? none of the guys you are trading them for are anything special assuming franson and lupul play very well next year.
Dominant. 600 games 184 goals 385 points 67 points is career high.this is not dominant.he is good and undervalued because of injury history but calling him dominant is offside.
I think The njd trade might work if toronto adds the pick instead but the rest of those players are not being moved for quantity if at all
Uh, leaf fans. This is as terrible as the one on top of this post. :/
I HATE the last two trades from Toronto's stand point.
All over payments.
No trades on this site should have an IF scenario. Trade then for what they are. I have no clue where lupuls "dominant" points have been? Kessel made him 2 years ago, he's an injury prone 2nd liner at best. 44 points in 69 games is not dominant.
That's way too much for okposo.
Njd either don't give the pick or ask for one from toronto.
If Nashville was going to move josi they would want different players than you suggested
27 Aug 2014 01:27:00
Not enough for any of those players.
26 Aug 2014 15:07:33
Winnipeg: E. Kane
Mon: Eller, Lehkonen, 1st
Wpg says blow me
Gallagher , Del la Rose and a 1st 2016. Then you might see Kane in a habs jersey.
I wouldn't trade a 1st round pick in that deal.
26 Aug 2014 05:48:43
Moen to anybody for 6
Boyes is way better
Boyes is cheaper and is a more reliable offensive option. Makes no sense for FLorida.
Not enough for Boyes.
Only Lindy Ruff could take Brad Boyes and turn him into a non factor. Under Ruff, Boyes scored 13 goals in 86 games. I am so glad Ruff is gone. I cannot wait for Nolan to leave next. No way does Florida make that trade, Boyes is cheaper and better.
I think Montreal adds a 3rd
All habs fans put unbelievable trades on here cause they have all there players overrated
26 Aug 2014 05:44:56
26 Aug 2014 05:42:00
CHI: Jurco, 1 and 2
26 Aug 2014 05:21:38
NYR: Marc Staal (if he won't re-sign)
NYI: Calvin de Haan and Anders Lee
26 Aug 2014 07:37:42
IF he doesn't want to resign with the Rangers, he prolly doesn't resign with the Isles, too.
I guess he wants to join his brothers then.
26 Aug 2014 21:42:49
i could see the isles doing that if he wouldn't resign with the rangers. of course they would do it without contact marc 1st to se if he was even interested in staying there and it would be another vanek situation likely.
26 Aug 2014 05:07:42
Flames: Agostino and a 2nd in 2016
26 Aug 2014 04:59:14
Flames: Bill Arnold
I just think its a good fit. Clear cap for Chicago and somewhat makes up for the loss of Hayes. Flames get a solid defensive dman with lots of playoff experience and leadership qualities.
26 Aug 2014 17:19:06
oduya is not good. he's a product of CHI's system and being protected. he was literally ran out of WPG. no way he's worth anything near arnold who is a pretty decent prospect.
26 Aug 2014 04:41:16
CAR: Brock McGinn, Brody Sutter
EDM: Jeff Petry
Defense for the Hurricanes
Forward depth for the Oilers
Petry isn't depth. He is a good top 4/6. Especially for Carolina.
Oh my god, that was my mistake! I can't read! Ignore my comment!
26 Aug 2014 04:25:33
DAL: Connauton 2016 2nd and 2015 5th that becomes a 4th if Boychuk re-signs with Dallas.
Improves Dallas D and gives Bruins space to sign Krug
26 Aug 2014 01:10:32
Canucks for the 2014-15 season:
To New Jersey: Markstrom
To Vancouver: 3rd Round Pick 2015
To Nashville: Edler
To Vancouver: Ekholm, 2nd Round Pick 2015
Sign Johansen to an offer sheet (What's reasonable for him?)
D. Sedin-H. Sedin-Vrbata
26 Aug 2014 07:39:49
Anything that could still be considered "reasonable" will easiyl get matched by the Jackets.
Have to overpay to make the Jackets think about not matching
^ there is no point in offer-sheeting Johansen, if you're not going to offer an amount CBJ is less than willing to match. In other words, any team willing to offersheet Johansen is willing to "overpay" (which is a bit of overused term).
He is wanting $7 million per. He won't sign an offer sheet for any less than that. And if you offer sheet that much I think Columbus would take the compensation and shoot for last in next year's draft.
25 Aug 2014 23:59:42
To EDM - Frans Nielsen, 2016 3rd
To NYI - Jeff Petry, Marc Arcobello
25 Aug 2014 23:50:04
mtl: DD, moen
Phi: vinny(cap retain), rosehill, 3rd
Habs dump moens salary, get someone cheap to replace him
Get vinny with retainded cap and a pick
Vinny is no longer an nhl player. He should be a 1st line minor player.
You would need 50% retain to get mtl attention
25 Aug 2014 20:41:18
To EDM: Paul Gaustad
To Nashville: Marc Arcobello 2015 3rd, 2016 2nd.
Paul does what he does. He's a checking center, best in the league at faceoffs and penalty killing," said Poile. "To me this is the good and bad news. Paul Gaustad is way more effective when our team has a lead, way more effective on our team as a shutdown guy. Give us the leads in the third period and the leads out of the gate and I think his role is better." Gaustad still has two years left on his current deal, which carries a $3.25 million cap hit. He contributed 10 goals and 11 assists in 75 games last season.
I think he would fit for the Oilers 3rd line center. Gordon can go 4th line.
Too much? Not enough?
I don't think Edmonton has the lead often enough for him to be effective if that's the case, but take out the 2nd and it's pretty close.
Not sure why we do this trade when we have clones of Gaustad named Gordan and Hendricks. Also I would never give a 2nd for Gaustad.
Probably too much for Gaustad, you're making him sound a lot better then he really is
Too much for gaustad IMO. He's overpaid, and sure he is great on face offs, defensively, and hitting. He can't do much offensively. You don't give that money to someone who is a bottom 6 player. But Edmonton could definitely use him. Maybe arcobello and a 3rd. A 2nd rounder for a bottom six player is too much IMO
26 Aug 2014 04:04:47
might be a bt much for gaustad
26 Aug 2014 05:53:57
drop the 2nd.
Gaustad is no more a 2nd line center than Gordon is. Oil are better off retaining Arcobello and using him at #2.
Chirp, I never said he was a 2nd liner. And yeah after I posted it. It was obvious to me that a 2nd is too much. And it is probably going to be early.
I don't make him sound great, that quote is from an article. Not mine.
Drownedfish said that you're making him sound better than he is,I agree.he said nothing about gaustad being great.
"I" didn't say anything, or made him sound better than he really is. That was from an article. Not mine.
25 Aug 2014 20:25:03
Going off a trade idea from below
Bourque and a 6th for Lecavalier 750, 000 retained and a 3rd
Only gets thought of as an idea if MTL can move Eller or DD beforehand, otherwise it makes logjam at center worse. (I get that)
25 Aug 2014 19:48:29
EDM : Myers
I could imagine Murray and Mactavish making that trade.
But Yakupov and Bieksa are kind of equal. Yakupov did bad last season, and Bieksa is getting old. And Yakupov has less salary. And he still has a good shot at making the NHL 2nd line/1st.
Bikes a will never get you Yakupov.
I like the Buffalo trade though. But Buffalo declines, they already have enough skill with their forwards. Myers still could become a top pairing d-man
The Van trade is really intriguing!
I agree with almost all of the above posts. If the Sabres did complete that trade, they would have to move either Stewart or Stafford or both. I love the idea of Yakupov possibly playing with Grigorenko.
25 Aug 2014 19:01:03
TOR: Lupul and a 4th
Kadri-Bozak-Nylander or Kadri-Bozak-Frattin
Extra: Frattin and Orr OR Brodie and Orr
Extra: Holzer or Grandberg
Reason: We need to add a bug skilled center and Berglund fits the bill. He is still young and could maybe hit full stride with the Leafs. Moving Bozak down let's Kadri play wing where I think he would flourish. Nylander MAY make the team out of camp. Having him with Bozak allows for him to take offensive risks. If he doesn't make the team out of camp I believe Frattin will be playing with Kadri. They showed signs of chemistry last time Frattin played for the Leafs. Our bottom 6 has good depth, can pitch in offensively, and are solid defensively. If Carlyle gives the other dman some time too and not rely heavily on Phaneuf than IMO we will see a better Phaneuf and a better all around defense. Bernier has the starting job for now, but Reimer seems hungry to win it back. A playoff team, but by no means a contending team. A step in the right direction IMO.
I doubt St.Louis makes this trade and if they did, Toronto likely has to eat at minimum 20% of his salary for the remaining years.
After than, the roster, as you have set it up is just wrong. Berglund is not going to be the #1 C or the #2 C IMO. Nylander is not playing in the NHL this year.
25 Aug 2014 19:37:42
STL wingers: Tarasenko, Backes, Schwartz, Steen, Oshie, Paajarvi. absolutely no need for Lupul.
And besides Paajarvi, all are better.
Robidas top 2?
David backes plays center, I think you're right the leafs could use berglund but I can't see at Louis making this deal
Well look at the leafs defenders oilersblue. Who on the leafs is a top pairing defender other than Phaneuf.
(Phaneuf is their best defender, don't start drama on that)
If the Leafs eat a bit of salary I could see it working. Gives the Blues unbelievable depth on the wings. The only other player to mive for Berglund would be Franson, but than it makes our D even worse @Drgonzo. We have all seen in recent playoffs that depth and goaltending is what wins championships.
I don't understand you're comment to me mg69.please explain
Good post.I think toronto adds a little
Because in previous trades we have agreed that Franson could fetch Berglund because St. Louis would add to their already good D. Unfortunately for us though if we trade Franson we need to flip someone else to add to our D. Lupul is our most expendable player upfront and I felt as if he is a complimentary piece to St. Louis and we address our need a center while still keep our D intact.
Ok thank you.i couldn't agree more
25 Aug 2014 18:59:10
To EDM: Henrique
TO NJ: Petry, Lander, 2016 2nd (+ maybe a defensive prospect like Gernat or Oesterle?)
EDM gets a solid 2C or maybe even 1C with his chemistry with Hall from Junior. Henrique has a good contract for the next 5 years, the Oilers would have to give up a lot to get him but I think he would be a good fit.
NJ gets some help on defense in Petry, a depth center that can play the wing in the bottom 6. Lander also is young and has the potential to find the scoring touch he displayed in the AHL. A solid pick (good chance it will be between 31-45). Plus a defensive prospect with NHL potential if needed.
Hit me up with suggestions.
Wheelin n Dealin
Not enough for Henrique
25 Aug 2014 16:48:08
WIN: Lehner and 3
Value would probably be closer if a solid prospect like Ceci or Zibanijad were added
I guess I did not realize that Kane could be had for a GK prospect and a 3rd, in that case: Dustin Tokarski, Joonas Nattinen & 2nd to WPG for Evander Kane
26 Aug 2014 00:15:23
^^yes please (._.)
25 Aug 2014 15:22:33
Evander Kane to Mtl for
P t ryn tokarski 1st Thomas and. A second
Bourque 1st 2nd andrighetto thrower for sharp
Pacioretty desharnais Sharp
Kane plekanec galchenyuk
Prust malhorta wiese
Extra: bournival sekac de la rose
Prob will never happen but it's good to dream
Those are actually realistic
The salary cap might disagree
Horrible for WPG
I still see both GM's saying no to the deals.
Less pieces more quality needs to come from MTL to Winnipeg they need immediate help, to Chicago who is in "cap trouble" they would like prospects and picks but for a aging winger it doesn't make sense from montreals standpoint!
26 Aug 2014 00:18:35
1. If Kane comes to Montreal he's playing off-wing on the first line.
2. The salary cap has a problem with this (._.)
3. Overpayment for both we're not giving up that many picks/prospects.
25 Aug 2014 09:11:05
Hansen, markstrom, gaunce and 2015 1st for kane
25 Aug 2014 09:01:52
To Columbus:Curtis Hamilton,Marnit Gernat 2016 2nd
To EDM: Rights to Johanson.
EDM's 2nd line center.
Young player that can step up to the nhl.
Might be the dumbest thing I've read all day.
25 Aug 2014 13:31:09
Super lopsided, not close to enough for Johansen
25 Aug 2014 15:52:09
Better throw in the rights to mcdavid
Columbus would never ever ever ever take that little for Johansen. Give your head a shake
Eberle would be going to Columbus for RJ
26 Aug 2014 00:20:31
Wow. just. wow.
That is the stupidest proposal I've seen for Johansen
27 Aug 2014 03:18:01
I hope this is a troll because that is horrid
25 Aug 2014 08:44:27
WPG signs Penner
Penner on the first line lmao.
Brutal for the Peg
Scheifele might not make the lineup? Lol
Wheeler is bteer than vrbata
25 Aug 2014 05:33:12
Oilers sign Andrei Loktionov for 2 years/1.2m.
Useful depth, can play on the 4th line. Still a young player. Loktionov put up 22 points in 68 games with the Hurricanes and New Jersey Devils in 2013-14 despite seeing less than 13 minutes of ice time per game.
To Tampa: Jeff Petry, 2016 3rd
To EDM: Matt Carle
Nice Offensive defenseman that can put up points.
And clears cap space for Tampa Bay.
To LA: 2015 4th round pick, 2016 6th
To EDM: Jeff Schultz
As big as he is, he usually plays in the AHL. He can be the Oiler's top 4. Also gives Brayden McNabb a chance to play. Even though he signed a one-way deal, although so was Schultz's last contract and that didn't stop Los Angeles from buying him in the minors for most of the 2013-14 campaign.
At best, Schultz will be a seventh defenseman with the Kings at the start of the season. According to:
Might work. Dunno.
Why would you want that giant pylon in you're top 4.i think he's a bottom pairing dman on a good day
Again, never had the proper chance in L.A. @Drgonzo I was watching him play in Washington, because I used to live there. Jeff Schultz is a good top 4. If you did not see him play, then don't comment. EDM needs a physical d-man with a strong shot.
I'm only commenting cause I've seen him play and he's not a top 4 dman on a good team.if edmontons goal is to continue drafting in the top 5 then good post.
I guess Washington didn't give him a proper chance too,wait they paid him to leave he's so darn good hahaha
I agree that Jeff schultz should not be in anyones top 4. But jeez @ Drgonzo, you call chirp a douche?
Have a seat oilers blue , Dr takes this one
26 Aug 2014 02:08:13
2 j.schultz. that would be confusing
No comments about the trade, you call me on calling Schultz a top four. This is a trade website. Not a depth chart website.
Lmao I gave my opinion and asked a question.if that makes me a douche fine.i think you're too sensitive. Lmao
I might be a douche^however to say I am a douche because of what I said above is laughable,someone get these poor oiler fans a tampon
Lmao now you have a reason to call me a douche yw
25 Aug 2014 05:07:58
Montreal trades Bourque for a 3rd.
Montreal trades Moen for a 6th.
Montreal trades Budaj for a 4th.
Plekanec & Ellis & Thomas & 2nd 2015 & 3rd 2016 for Kane.
Pacioretty DD Parenteau
Kane Gakchenyuk Gallagher
Sekac Eller Andrighetto
Prust Malhotra Weise
You will be lucky if Moen will get you a 7th. And Budaj won't get you a 4th. He will get you a 7th/late 6th. As good as Kane is, I would give up a 2nd in "the strong draft" And a couple of B-prospects that do have a good chance of making it into the nhl.
Boutique ain't getting you a 3rd. 5th maybe.
Not enough for Kaner
25 Aug 2014 03:29:23
Col: mcginn, talbot, mitchell, 4th
Mtl: thomas, lekhonen, hudon, 2nd
Was: 2nd, 4th
Pacioretty DD Parenteau
Bourque galchenyuk mcginn
Talbot Eller Sekac
Prust malholtra mitchell
Idk if the value for the first trade is too much or not enough, let me know :)
Id love feedback
I also believe that Gallagher won't crack the Habs roster. He should spend next season in the AHL
I would give 3 of the top 10 habs prospects for colorado scrap
You're lineup looks terrible to me,no playoffs for Montreal with that top 6
24 Aug 2014 21:39:41
Burrows, lack, jensen and 2015 2nd for evander kane
Hansen and 2016 2rd for Nino Nierderreiter
24 Aug 2014 21:09:33
Sign Vincent Praplan 3yrs 2.35m
Resign Ryan 5yrs 31.25m
Resign Methot 4yrs 21m
Trade Wiercioch, Prince and a 2nd round pick to CAR for Tlusty and a 4th round pick
25 Aug 2014 06:25:56
ryan would probably b ewanting 8 years and likely a significant bit more than 6.25 per
Ryan won't re sign with a basement team while he's in his prime.
24 Aug 2014 17:35:03
I heard on a blog
Plekanec for thornton
P.S plekanec is younger, faster, and has less of a cap
Picante, If he's Plekanec is better than thornton (as per faster, younger and has less cap) why would MTL do this? obviously Joe is better so no from sj
24 Aug 2014 19:46:13
plekanec also has a lot less skill, but anyways, won't happen.
24 Aug 2014 19:53:44
Thornton is still much better than Plekanec. Would need to add Tinordi/Belieau and a 2nd
Big joe > plekanec
Sharks would want players who are in there 20's, not early 30's
I think if SJS wanted a one for one trade, it would be for a younger C with good upside. Plekanec is a solid player but not the sort of player SJ would want if trading Thorton
First off no from SJ, and second Joe laughs and says screw off if SJ ever asked him to waive his NTC for this
Wheelin n Dealin
I think this is the biggest unbelievable trade on this website. 40 unbelievable ratings maybe you should just comment on posts from now on.
^ Says the guy who proposed Hamilton, Gernat, and a 2nd for Ryan Johanson. Currently 1 believeable (no doubt your own) and 20 unbelievables and counting. That's just as bad sir.
@HockeyGodsGift, no. This 45+ unbelievable, and says the guy that never posts a trade, but likes to comment. Post a trade, let's see how bad it is.
EDIT: My bad, you just posted it.
Lol hockeygift posts more trades than anyone.
24 Aug 2014 15:49:43
Mtl: plekanec, fucale, hudon, 2nd
My first post here btw :-)
Actually believable, good post for a first time
24 Aug 2014 18:03:44
Way to much for Kane as this point.
Gallagher , Fucale, Del la Rose and a 2nd for Kane.
24 Aug 2014 18:41:57
WPG would probably want someone younger than pleky
24 Aug 2014 23:13:10
to much for Kane
24 Aug 2014 23:18:39
Trade for lecavlier, solves problem for big center for at least 3 years won, t cost much except for salary
Great first post! I got chewed out on my first post haha.
My thoughts are that WPG is going to want more/younger players but this is likely as good as they are going to get because of Kanes attitude issues.
Also, I think that MTL is giving up a lot in this deal so combine that with how much WPG wants and its close.
(Maybe switch Fucale and Tokarski?)
Tokarski's value is high after their playoff run and Fucale is an awesome prospect with high potential. Going to have to pick one and trade the other. I'd go with Fucale because he's younger and MTL still has budaj to back up Price until Fucale is ready for the job.
Wheelin n Dealin
How do you know he has attitude issues? Are you behind the bench with the jets?
We take no responsibility for the accuracy or otherwise of published nhl rumors
