Nattinen is a winger

Fleury > Bernier
This trade makes no sense for the leafs, trade an up and coming Defensemen and our 1# goalie.

Why would Philly want Richards back? His best days are behind him.
24 Apr 2014 18:34:22
Who's going to play D in Philly if the lose Kimmo and trade L. Schenn and Cobourn?
Philly needs change of D. Richards experience is over. They dealt him away when they should have kept him.
Philly needs defensemen, they don't need to trade defenseman for two players past their prime.

Niskanen is a UFA. The Pens don't have the rights to him.
Nisky is a UFA. lol
Bolland is also a UFA

Those are both bad trades for the Oilers.
Haha if you are an Oiler fan you do not watch enough games. Letang is an offensive dman when he is healthy. Your team needs defensive help.
As good as Letang is, the Oilers don't need a guy like him. Letang is more of an offensive defenseman, like Karlsson. Edmonton needs a guy like Shea Weber.
Letang is an offensive defenceman. The Oilers need Defensive defencemen.

Add JVR and Rielly
That MIGHT get u richards but not kopitar no where close
The principal reason for acquiring Kopitar (less so Richards) would be to centre Kessel.
Amanda Kessel might get you Kopitar and Richards, cause there's no way you're talking about Phil Kessel, he isn't worth anything.
24 Apr 2014 16:36:50
Was doesn't have enough depth on D to move Alzner but Green might be available
24 Apr 2014 16:30:07
We already traded Oliver Roy in the Brossoit trade. Maybe learn about thr assets we have before calling yourself an oilers fan.
What are you talking about. ? you should learn your facts hahah that's Olivier Roy not Marc-Olivier Roy! so you should do some research before you call yourself an oilers fan buddy!
Not an oilers fan but love the first comment. Lmao very ironic
So Edmonton passes up a chance to get Connor McDavid? lol no.
Hes a forward not a goalie bro
24 Apr 2014 16:07:28
I went to see ritchie, horvat and kassian all on a line together. That line would way exactly 646 pounds and terrorize there conference for a long time to come.
Van traded Hodgson for a big strong power forward lol That guy's a schmuck.
24 Apr 2014 15:52:23
I would do it if we can trade up and get Ekblad or if he falls to 3rd.
Im guessing Lander will be the 4th line centre? Also use Gagner on the rw he cant't play centre to use hia life. Guaranteed if he's used right which is on the wing he will be a better player.
I would do it then offer Niskanen a nice contract.
Richards has regressed to the point that he is not worth much.
24 Apr 2014 13:05:26
Seems like the SBR are taking a big chance on Sbisa but there is big pay off if he can perform up to expectations.
Foligno is young, tough and can play. They won't trade him for that crap!
Sabres say NOPE!
Souray should retire. i'm surprised he's still around.
BUF trades Mike Weber; Jerome Gauthier-Leduc; & Anthony Florentino; to ANA for Luca Sbisa; Bryan Allen; Sheldon Souray; & 2nd. OK, take Foligno out of the trade.
24 Apr 2014 12:21:38
Fans don't have any say lol especially when Pitts are in first round of playoffs. If fans did have a say, Leafs would have won a cup at least 10 times by now.
Just how are fans looking to get rid of him?? Worst post ever!
A lot of LEAFS FANS are looking to get rid of Clarkson, but, who are we. we can't.
Anderson is a upgrade over Fleury? Really?
Anyone is an up grade to Fleury. Really!
Ottawa doesn't want them they're expecting Lehner to become the starter in the very near future.
I don't even know where to begin with this trade.
This is a joke trade if I've ever seen one.
24 Apr 2014 06:54:33
If Steen was not good enough to play for the Leafs, well this trade won't help much. Sames goes for a lot of ex-toronto players that are in playoffs now. TML need to revamp whole team from captain down!
Steen was good for the leafs just mgt just didn't properly assess him
^Steen and Vermette are not the same type of player
^ I like Steen he's a great player, but until this year (when he scored 62 pts btw), he hasn't been a game breaker by any means. As a leafs fan I would take it any day, but to suggest the Leafs let go of the golden goose is wrong.
Vermette is awful btw and I would like steen instead.
Vermette isn't awful only a Toronto fan would think that. Vermette is crazy good and defensively responsible. He is something the Leafs don't have and would dream about having. One of the most underrated players in the league.
24 Apr 2014 04:26:07
Trades aren't too bad but I am sure Burkie learned from past mistakes and won't take on those two guys again. Phaneuf and Reimer haven't lived up to anything special. No thanks from Calgary. Besides nobody wants a 50 million dollar price-tag for average dman.
Noooo way say flames.
I don't think either of those trades bring back equal value to the other team. Phaneuf has little to no value with that contract, Reimer is worth a third so that trade proposes that Phaneuf has equal value to Giordano which he does not, not close. Van wants a top prospect good center and a first or Kessler alone. That is Gardiner, Kadri, and the first. That may be a bit more than they are looking for, but not enough to counteract the difference between Edler and Gunnerson. Therefore I think Vancouver gets ripped off in this trade as well. This one is at least on the right track though.
BUF trades Jamie McBain, to TML for Dion Phaneuf and 3rd.
24 Apr 2014 04:19:33
Reimer is a backup in a full season. Not consitenly reliable. Rights to a player are not worth more than a late pick
Reimer is an avg backup at best.
But they are RFA rights, so the Jets have full control over Franson, whereas if it were UFA rights, they would only have that full week or so before free agency opens. RFA rights can be worth a hell of a lot more than UFA rights, depending on the situation.
24 Apr 2014 03:10:33
Calgary deal definetly won't happen spezza has a 7m cap hit I think and vanek gets more so in short it doesn't work with the cap
We get a better d man and a better pick from Calgary. this is funny, i'm a leafs fan and I can say this is a joke.
No thanks to the Edmonton deal.
Both Alberta teams get bent over by the Leafs and there gms would be fired on spot.
24 Apr 2014 02:59:41
Both trades definetly don't happen both the other teams give up young star players while you give up quantity
I guess statsny is sitting in the press box
LA KINGS are laughing so hard
I can't stop laughing
Leafs add a conditional first round pick if Benn scores more an 25 goals during 2014/15. Leafs add Reilly and another first in the LA trade and retain some $$$, and would probably have to get rid of Lupus and Percy and replace them with JvR LA doesn't like injury prone and poor players.
24 Apr 2014 02:47:23
Big bounce back year lol Very doubtful. What you see is what you get. Nonis thought Dion deserved it for some strange reason?
Where is the value for the Islanders, they give up as you say a #1, Future All Star center, for a backup goalie, bottom pairing D-Man and a 3rd line center who does not fit a need for them.
Reimer has the potential to be a good starting goalie, as he showed all throughout 2012-2013. Kadri is already more than a 3rd line center, 50 pts as a 23 year old is very valuable in this league, believe it or not. And Gardiner is a bottom pairing d-man, but is also 23 and has the potential to get a hell of a lot better in the future. By your standards, Strome is a 3rd line winger then. Just because a player plays for the Leafs doesn't mean they suck and won't get better.
24 Apr 2014 01:55:24
As a sens fan I'd rather have lazar and although the sens have plenty of centers it's easier to shift them to wing. Te world juniors really showed that with lazar where he could play both wings and centre as well as play the pp and the pk.
24 Apr 2014 01:35:50
Take out Finn and one of the first and add in Reilly and tb might accept. They need good d men now
As a Tampa fan. all of this makes me laugh. No. just no. Stamkos is one of the top players in the game. Kessel is good won't argue but he he doesn't fit Tampa as well as he does Toronto. Most of Tampa s players are stamkos age they'll hit primes together. Tampa doesn't have as big a need on d as people think. Brewer was great this year hedman broke out. Sustr and Gudas won't be rookies next year they just need experience. Carle was good till playoffs. They may look to sign a d man but they don't need to trade stamkos to get one.
Maybe more like Stamkos for Kessel, JVR, Rielly, three 1sts and Gardiner
Or keep your assets and pick him up as a UFA
Yzerman: "Dave, hand the phone over to Shanny. so I can tell him to fire you. "

Avs will be worse off.
24 Apr 2014 01:08:32
Not enough for Yakupov, montreal has to add.
Because of how good the top three picks this year will be, and Subban's issues (needs vets to calm him down, contract issues, etc. ) I feel Edmonton gives up too much. Not by much, but too much to make it happen.
23 Apr 2014 22:58:00
Ottawa May as well through in rights for Hemsky too there and you can take our entire line
23 Apr 2014 22:04:03
Ottawa takes out Greening, Adds Cowen and LA adds a second in 2015 too.
23 Apr 2014 20:27:28
We do fine without chara, rather draft a similar player and develop him for cheap.
Scott is more useless than Orr
Justin Johnson dummied Scott and he is half his size chara would destroy Scott. Scott lost to or and McLaren he is not that tough for his size
Why so chara can beat the stuffing out of him too. john scott is a horrible fighter his size and reach is the only reason he's still alive
Just pick up McLaren for free. Nobody wants him and he can skate better than orr chara and scott.
