Montreal has enough cap problems with Weber’s and Price’s contracts.

Agree2 Disagree1

23 May 2018 18:56:48
Since Hossa just retired would his contract still be a thing or would it be terminated?

Agree2 Disagree0

23 May 2018 20:15:24
It would be thing.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 May 2018 20:49:13
I think since he retired it’s done. If he stayed on LTIR it would still be a thing (like pronger) . I could be wrong but I believe the ones that still stay on after retirement are guys who sign multi year deals after the age of 35. Hossas deal takes him to 40+ but it was one of those 12 or 13 year outrageous deals signed at like 28 years old. I believe the rule you’re talking about where the team pays even if the player retires was put in place afterwards to stop deals like Hossa, zetterberg, Franzen etc.

Again I could be wrong, that’s how I remember it though.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 May 2018 21:20:00
Okay well with that in mind easy easy no from Chicago especially if patches doesn’t sign. Chicago needs to build up through youth again.

Agree0 Disagree0

TOR: 2018 2nd, Calle Rosen, Josh Leivo
WAS: Brooks Orpik, Matt Niskanen

Doesn't seem like much coming from Toronto but we would be eating cap for them inorder for them to resign Carlson.

Brooks Orpik is obviously a cap dump with a year left at 5.5M. Niskanen has 3 years left at 5.75M and would be a good partner for Rielly in my opinion.

Believable3 Unbelievable10

22 May 2018 21:27:25
If Niskanen continues to decline in play, the Leafs will have over 10 million dollars committed to him and Zaitsev for minimum 3 years, all while having to work out the new contracts for the big 3, plus Kapanen and Johnsson coming up for renewals as well. Not very well thought out, Leafs with the hard no.

Agree6 Disagree3

22 May 2018 21:50:40
So tell how you plan on paying Matthews/ Marner/ Nylander?

Agree4 Disagree2

22 May 2018 23:37:52
No from leafs, why not just target an actually good dman who is better suited for them instead of taking cap dumps.

Agree5 Disagree2

23 May 2018 03:35:41
The Leafs window to take cap dumps is about over. They have some great pieces to build around. They should start focusing on plugging holes with complementary talent, not cast-offs.

Agree1 Disagree1

23 May 2018 03:41:42
A good d man is going to cost us an arm and a leg. Leafs can afford to take a cap dump next year.

Agree1 Disagree3

23 May 2018 12:52:53
Ya but why get to cap dumps and give a second to get them. Unless Niskanen is worth his money which is probably not true since he is ok but for 5.5 million its too much.

Agree1 Disagree2

23 May 2018 16:15:30
Leafs have assets to get a good Dman and are not in a position anymore to take other teams bad money. If we’re trading a decent pick and 2 young players, plus taking a cap dump i'd want someone better than niskanen or atleast someone as good as niskanen but on a very team friendly contract, not 5.75x3. That would be us paying all that to have niskanen as our highest paid Dman and second highest paid player overall behind marleau this season (depending on Nylander of course) . Bad plan.

Agree2 Disagree1

22 May 2018 05:01:12
Oilers trade: Puljujarvi, Lucic, 10th overall

Rangers trade: zucc, namestnikov, 2nd round pick

Rangers draft: Hughes and kotkaniemi if available

Believable2 Unbelievable17

22 May 2018 12:59:20
I honestly think Kotkaniemi is only being talk about in the top 10 because he's a center but at the end of the day at number 10 you take the best player available and although he's good he looks like hell be a big second like center who gets around 50 points which is good but imo you can do better with the 10 overall.

Agree4 Disagree6

22 May 2018 20:45:22
Kotkaniemi's numbers are pretty much the exact same as Mikko Rantanen's were in his draft year. Same league and everything. Rantanen went 10th overall and how was his production this past year?

Agree2 Disagree1

22 May 2018 23:39:05
Doesn’t matter where you get drafted or how you did previously in another league, but I read Kotkaniemi is supposedly the top center in the draft.

Agree3 Disagree1

23 May 2018 01:30:35
i'd be interested in seeing zucc playing with mcdavid, but is taking lucic contract really worth dropping from top 10 overall to second round?

Agree1 Disagree2

22 May 2018 02:12:57
Im a leaf fan but curious as to what you guys would want for your 10th overall.

TOR: 25th overall, Gardiner
EDM: 10th overall

Gardiner would easily be your best puck moving defencemen, you would then be easily able to move Klefbom and have someone capable of replacing him. He brings something you don't really have on the back end. Would you guys want more? I could see Kapanen being real dominate with McDavid, he's a goal scoring RW.

Believable7 Unbelievable14

22 May 2018 09:24:53
IF we trade the pick i want someone better than gardiner.

Agree7 Disagree2

22 May 2018 17:10:10
Take back sekera and add Kapanen 👍🏻.

Agree7 Disagree5

22 May 2018 20:19:38
Kappanen> Gardiner and 25th ovr.

Agree3 Disagree5

22 May 2018 20:26:04
I’d rather keep the pick from Toronto’s POV. This draft is average at best and the skill gap between 10 and 25 probably won’t be that much. Leafs also need as much help on D as they can get so trading away a 50 point defenseman might not be exactly ideal.

Agree2 Disagree3

23 May 2018 12:32:22
Nurse. Klefbom. Russell. Sekera. - Left shot
Larsson. Benning. Bear. - Right.
Gardiner. - Left shot.

Why the F would Edm trade that pick for another leftie?
If they are trading that pick it's in a package to bring a lot better if a D man than Gardiner back. And probably a right handed shot.
This is a terrible proposal all around.

Agree2 Disagree2

23 May 2018 16:26:22
I get the LHD vs RHD arguement and you might not want Gardiner but people have to remember that the guy played 82 regular season games and 6 playoff games before that awful game 7. That’s the taste left in everyone’s mouth because it was the last game of the year. Everyone (almost) has terrible nights and if he had played 2 nights later, no one would talk about him the same. It’s already been shown here how superior his numbers are to guys like Justin Faulk (who gets a lot of praise from the same guys that put down Gardiner) and others. He’s a good player, 28 years old and makes $4mill coming off his best season of his career. You should just trade for another RHD who is better like griffin Reinhart again I guess.

Agree2 Disagree2

22 May 2018 01:59:47
OTT: Smith
CGY: 3rd, 6th

OTT: Englund, 3rd, 4th
NYI: Ho-sang

Ho-sang could be a good fit along side Hoffman and Duchene. He is dynamic and fast enough to play with them. If not, he could go down and help Belleville

Believable2 Unbelievable12

22 May 2018 04:36:12
Zero chance Calgary trades Smith for that.

Agree2 Disagree7

22 May 2018 07:32:27
Nono. Sens trade Zack Smith.

Agree2 Disagree1

22 May 2018 01:24:28
Ott: ceci
Mtl: one of their 2nd rounds

Mtl needs a dman and ottawa needs a 2nd rounder

Ott: ryan
Edm: lucic

Ott: hoffman/ harpur

Believable4 Unbelievable11

22 May 2018 07:02:08
I know ceci could Help habs défense squad a little bit, but Montreal won’t Trade a second round pick for him. Habs have already 9 dman on the payroll and they are retooling or rebuilting their club. They will give much more ice Time to our young dman.

Agree2 Disagree2

22 May 2018 13:00:29
I'd take Ceci for a second but not 35 overall. Like are last second this draft.

Agree1 Disagree2

21 May 2018 22:18:57
Probably way off.. and of course I want to see him on my Habs.. but what about a Buffalo and NYI blockbuster...
Tavares on a sign and trade plus a small add due to age difference.
For Jack Eichel.

I'm not a huge Eichel fan due to his personality..I think his ego may be to much to have someone who is coming in the league with even more hype than he did.. Dahlin..
Buffalo gets a strong leader in Tavares..reunited with Okposo.. NYI still gets to have a Star center..

Believable4 Unbelievable8

22 May 2018 01:48:53
Islanders won’t be adding anything extra.

Agree5 Disagree4

22 May 2018 03:08:38
No way buffalo touches this Eichel is 20 and is almost as good as Tavares. I’d trade Austin Mathews for Jack Eichel as a leafs fan. And I wouldn’t trade Mathews for Barzel and a player you could get for free in Free agency. In two seasons Eichel will out produce Tavares career highs I’m calling it right now. With that being said if I were buffalo I’d trade O’rielly and sign Tavares to be the 2 c.

Agree1 Disagree10

23 May 2018 16:37:28
I wouldn’t trade Matthews for Eichel first off. Secondly, buffalos ownership has committed to Eichel with that massive contract and has apparently allowed him atleast some input on firing and hiring or coaches and gm lol they don’t do that and then trade him 10 months later.

Agree2 Disagree0

21 May 2018 20:31:01
Edmonton- Ryan Nugent-Hopkins
- Andre Sekara
- jessi Puljujarvi
- 1st round 2018 (10th overall)

Carolina- Jeff Skinner
- Justin Faulk
- 1st round 2018 (3rd overall)

Lets here from both sides. What do ya figure? I'm an Oiler fan by the way.

Believable2 Unbelievable7

22 May 2018 01:25:54
No from edmonton lol

Agree3 Disagree3

22 May 2018 01:28:37
Puljujarvi and the 10th alone can get faulk and then you think the 3rd can get nuge and sekera? Dream on. An established 2nd line center and a top4-6 dman for a 2nd overall pick in the draft. i'm pretty sure carolina has 2nd overall bud

Agree1 Disagree4

22 May 2018 01:31:30
I’m pretty sure we already knew you were an Oiler fan. 😂
No from the Canes.

Agree4 Disagree5

22 May 2018 03:06:27
No kidding your an Oiler fan. You think a lower 1st r d pick (7 spots), a prospect that hasn’t developed as hoped, almost a $ dump and 1 decent C moves you up to #3 in the draft and gets you a top 6 scoring winger and a solid top 3 D. Nope. I don’t think so.

Agree2 Disagree3

22 May 2018 09:42:08
Bandwagon fans? Carolina draft at 2 not 3.

Take out sekera . and add klefbom and Skinner

Oilers: RNH, JP klefbom and 1st pick 2018

Canes : Skinner, faulk and 1st pick 2018.

More fair.

Agree2 Disagree3

23 May 2018 16:40:05
Franchise billy, you don’t think 2nd overall can get a good second line centre making 6mill and a cap dump Dman making over $5mill? Another overvalue oilers fan. that’s what we were missing here lol.

Agree2 Disagree0

21 May 2018 19:16:07
Maybe this can work maybe need to add just an idea

To ARZ- OTT 4th overall and Gaborik
To OTT- ARZ 5th overall
To NYR- ARZ 5th overall and B. Ryan
To OTT- NYR 9th overall

And then hopefully OTT gets someone like oliver wahlstrom or merkley with the 9th pick and get ride of about 12 million in cap space, what do you guys think ?

Believable8 Unbelievable8

21 May 2018 19:44:48
I think it's believable, but would only work if Arizona is desperate for someone at 4.

Agree6 Disagree2

21 May 2018 21:12:46
Not believable that trade is stupid for Arizona.

Agree4 Disagree4

21 May 2018 18:20:19


Edmonton gets a young right winger who could play in the bottom six and plays on the edge. Philly gets a guy who will get you 10 goals at least and is slightly more proven.

They are similar players but help each team fill something: experience for Philly, a righr winger for Edmonton.

I saw this all in an article.

Believable2 Unbelievable6

21 May 2018 22:26:34
I wouldn't want to trade Caggulia. he jus seems what the league is all about these days. speed speed and more speed.
However I am not familiar with the guy from Philly, so maybe he is just as fast.

I honestly don't think Edmonton should do to many changes. I think they will be just fine. if. any changes need to be made, it will be in goal. let's see if Talbot can get back to 16/ 17 form. if he can. Oilers are contenders .
Pretty much anyone without the number 97 on his back played below expectations.
