Detroit:Krowall, 2rd pick 2017

Dallas: Honka

Bold kinda interesting option:

Detroit Trades: Zetterberg, Nyquist, Kronwall, +?

Dallas Trades: 3rd overall, 1st 2018, One of Niemi/Lehtonen

Why Detroit does it: Detroit clears cap and gets quality pieces to help the rebuild.

Why Dallas does it: Dallas gets a boost up front with two Swedish forwards who together add depth to Dallas's offense. Kronwall gives Klingberg a mentor and a veteran to focus on Defense while Klingberg focuses on offense. Dallas also dumps a goalie to make the cap less. Maybe they add another cap dump to lessen salary.This is to help for a cup run during Benn & Seguin era.

Please comment thoughts on value. Not saying this will happen(but possible due to Jim Nill connection) but strictly value wise.

Nail Yakupov + Jori Lethtera to the Florida Panthers in exchange for Colton Sceviour + 4th Round Pick.

Florida takes a chance on a guy who could possibly get 40pts (Lethera) . Large salary+down year makes his value plummet however.

Then Sceviour for Yak. Sceviour is more of asure thing, you know you're getting 20 points, 30 at the max. Yak is a wild card. He could get 50 points playing with Barkov+Huberdeau, or he could be a frequent healthy scratch and could only end up with ten points.

I think Florida is willing to gamble here though.

ALso, this deal makes Nick Bjugstad expandable, as the Panthers centre core becomes Barkov/ Trocheck/ Lehtera,
Bjugstad could be moved for a good dman or winger,

I like yak for Sceivour but I wouldn't want to take on Letheras Salary.

29 May 2017 02:05:16
I don't think Yak is a wildcard. He is what he is. A bust.

Agree0 Disagree1

I don't think Borje is a correct. He is what he is. A clueless Oilers hater.

To FL: Brown

To TOR: Alex Petrovic

Panthers will likely leave him unprotected and need some scoring help if Jagr leaves. Brown could earn a first line role and Petrovic would be a great 2nd pairing on the Leafs.
Feel free to add if you feel it isn't even.

Idk about first line role but I think that's a good trade for leafs and Florida.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 May 2017 05:45:05
Don't see brown being a top line player. 20 goal rookie year is encouraging but I think he's a middle six guy with penalty killing abilities and great work ethic. Decent trade needs wise but I think leafs keep all those young kids unless it's in a package for a big upgrade on D. Don't feel petrovic is that guy.

Agree0 Disagree0

Tor:Bracco, 3 Rd pick

Detroit: Zeterberg,5 Rd pick

Zenny could be a really good mentor for the younger leafs Yes he's old and pretty much washed up offensively but has a 3/4 liner who is a leader in the locker room I think he could fetch a B+ prospect and a late pick in a week year

Believable1 Unbelievable5

28 May 2017 21:07:49
i would do this but i say unbelievable. if toronto trades i think they'll look for top 2 or top 4 defenceman if anything. why would they want zetterberg's contract if he'd only be bottom 6 forward. if this happened detroit would need to retain.

Agree1 Disagree2

28 May 2017 21:08:48
NO! no trade. leafs say no. why trade any youth for a player that will retire in 2 to 3 years. We do not need Zeterberg! He is past his prime. No reason to help detroit out on a rebuild either. let them drown!

Agree2 Disagree2

28 May 2017 21:43:29
All these fools say Zetterberg is a bottom 6 forward and ''past his prime'' when he scored 68 points last season on one of the worst teams in the NHL.

With Tatar, Larkin, Nyquist failing to score Zetterberg was Detroit's only offence.

Bottom 6 forward.
Slap yourself.

Agree1 Disagree1

28 May 2017 22:48:00
If he knew he'd be a 3/ 4 liner on Toronto I think he'd rather retire. He's still an impact player and he's going to finish his career out in Detroit.

Agree2 Disagree1

28 May 2017 22:51:22
But hey I guess he's washed up offensively and 68 points isn't a lot tho according to you. :/.

Agree1 Disagree0

29 May 2017 00:47:12
Agree with TB3 here Zenny is far from a bottom 6 forward he put up more points then anyone on the leafs on a worse team.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 May 2017 03:09:31
Detroit isn't going to trade Zetterberg for numerous other reasons but if they did he would still have quite a bit of value.

Like a few people mentioned, he isn't washed up yet. He carried a team who had numerous players go on a bad offensive season. Zetterberg brings leadership, experience and is very strong on the puck. He can create chances and provide playmaking offence. If Toronto isn't willing to pay for him because they feel he is only a 3rd/ 4th liner.

Zetterberg would just prefer to be traded to a cup contender instead.

Agree1 Disagree0

29 May 2017 03:45:01
He had 68 points?! Haha holy didn't expect that. He'd be more appreciated on a Chicago or LA IMO.

Philly: Shayne Ghotisbehere and 1st 2018

New Jersey: Corey Schneider

Philly: Allows Prov to step up as the undisputed number 1dman and there is an abudancy of Dman in there System to replace his role. They finally get there true number 1 goalie and IMO if you put him on a team that wasn't Terrible he'd be a top 5 goalie in the NHL.

New Jersey: Schneider won't win a cup with NJ and They need to go into a rebuild. Ghost Instantly becomes there top dman and they get a nice pic to start there rebuild.

Also this is just a discussion I'm not sure how far I am off also not sure if these teams are good trading partners sense they are division rivals.

Believable3 Unbelievable6

28 May 2017 19:54:06
No way they trade for a 2018 pick.

Agree2 Disagree1

28 May 2017 20:26:01
That's really interesting for both teams I like it.

Agree2 Disagree0

28 May 2017 21:48:11
How is this interesting?

NJ has no starter. Lol are they going to roll with Keith Kinkaid as their starter?

Shayne Gostisbehere is not a top 2 defenceman. I don't know where you got that from. Doughty, Suter, Weber, Subban, Faulk, Burns THESE are top 2 defencemen. Gostisbehere is a good top 4. If you put him anywhere else he's going to suck.

Why does Philly need Schneider? They can just resign the younger and cheaper Mason. He had a crap season because the Flyers' defence didn't know what they were doing half of the time.

Provorov isn't ready to being a #1 defenceman. You must be nuts.

Gost does not instantly become their best d-man. Severson is just as good, maybe even better than Gostisbehere. He doesn't give the puck away every second pass he makes.

Agree1 Disagree2

28 May 2017 22:21:32
Why not @itookdonscherry I think the opposite they are rebuilding.

Agree1 Disagree0

29 May 2017 00:58:01
New Jersey is a rebuilding team and imo without Schneider they'd be the team with the best lottery odds wh itch is a good thing. Also they could always sign a plug like Steve Mason or one of the Dallas goalies once bought out. Idk about you but if I had the choice between Severson and Ghost I'd take Ghost 100/ 10 times. Also I never said once he is a top 2 dman. Also Prov is capable in playing that role on Philly as of now imo. Obviously he's not as good as them but where did I say he was? Andy Green is a top 2 dman for NJ that dosent mean he is on the same level as them. Also if you believe steave Mason is on the same level as Schneider you're an idiot.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 May 2017 04:07:11
No from Philly. Hextall won't trade draft picks for veterans as that's not his philosophy. Philly has an abundance of goaltending prospects and Schneider is actually too good of a stopgap. There's no dogfight in Philly over who's going to be the #1; that's Provorov no question.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 May 2017 18:13:37
Vancouver: 2nd overall pick
Flyers: Tanev and 33 overall pick

Or Vancouver: 2nd overall pick Simmons
Flyers: Tanev 5th overall pick and 33 overall pick.

Believable2 Unbelievable6

28 May 2017 19:19:35
No from Philly on both.

Agree4 Disagree1

28 May 2017 19:28:06
Not even close. Philli turns down both.

Agree4 Disagree1

28 May 2017 19:29:11
Makes absolutely no sense for philly at all.

Agree4 Disagree1

28 May 2017 19:30:35
2nd > 5th (obviously)
Simmonds >> Tanev

and the 33rd pick doesn't make up the difference.

Agree3 Disagree1

28 May 2017 20:15:38
i've said it before and i'll say it again. TANEV IS NOT WORTH A TOP 5 PICK, EVEN IF IT'S A WEAK DRAFT YEAR. tanev is worth a late first at best or a second round and a prospect. the 2nd rounder does not make up the difference.

Agree3 Disagree2

29 May 2017 00:08:37
Holy. Easy no from philly.

If holtby was to get traded where would he go to and what for just wanna see opinions
Holtby for tkachuk, 1st, 2018 1st

Believable1 Unbelievable12

28 May 2017 05:16:17
What is all this about trading Holtby? i'd move Ovechkin way before i'd move him. he's what? 26, already a top 5 goalie in the league. I honestly don't see him going anywhere, he's in the same conversation with Price, Lundqvist A healthy Quick .

Agree5 Disagree0

28 May 2017 18:15:44

holtby for tkachuk and 2 firsts.

Agree4 Disagree0

29 May 2017 02:32:57
For real, goalies don't carry anywhere near this kinda value. Think more along the lines of parson, fox and a 2nd.

28 May 2017 03:10:00
Dallas: 3rd overall and Cody Eakin

New York: Ryan McDonagh

New York: Almost no notable prospects in there system and there cup window is most likely closed a retool would be the best thing to do. Dallas: gets exactly what they need a number one dman.

Believable2 Unbelievable13

28 May 2017 18:11:07
In my opinion, NYR decline.

Ryan McDonagh is a great defenceman While also putting up 30-40 points per season. Only 27 years old and with a great contract (4.7m) for the next two years I believe.

Cody Eakin can't score to save his life.
3rd overall isn't a 100% guarantee to even play in the NHL.

Agree1 Disagree2

28 May 2017 18:12:55
And Nylander, we all know it's you VB.

Agree1 Disagree1

28 May 2017 02:16:23
-Oshie resigning in Washington all but done.

-An insider suggesting Joe Thornton wants to play in Toronto.

-Bobbys Ryan's NMC only protects him from being sent to the minors. Some people think it's a no trade list.

-Barberio ex Colorado Avalanche has said that Duchene does and would welcome a a trade to play for another team other than Colorado.

Believable6 Unbelievable1

28 May 2017 05:14:05
Joe Thortan to Toronto makes no sense A, We got Nylander, Bozak, Kadri and Mathews B, Why would he want to go to a team that won't win the cup next year. I like him and I wouldn't mind signing him if we traded Bozak but really it's not a fit. Montreal would want him the most i'd think.

Agree3 Disagree8

28 May 2017 06:15:07
- Super Secret CIA-FBI-NSA insider revealed that Wayne ''The Money'' Gretzky will be un-retiring and play for the Quebec Nordiques as a defenceman.

Agree2 Disagree6

28 May 2017 18:12:24
Yes I'm sure Montreal is jumping up and down for a 38 year old center who will score the same amount of points as Galchenyuk.

Agree0 Disagree1

29 May 2017 00:09:40
Oshie 3-5 years at $5M.
Wow. That's a big discount in my opinion. He could get 6x6 I think.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 May 2017 01:00:39
TB3 I disagree that Pleky is the better player. IMO Thortan would be a huge upgrade on Plek and Danult.
