Thoughts ?

05 Aug 2018 17:23:06
Classic Pinball.

05 Aug 2018 21:05:22
Anaheim laughs at this and never bothers dealing with us again LOL.

21 Jul 2018 09:21:46
Two Anaheim trades making both teams better (IMO)

Trade 1:
CBJ - Panarin
ANA - Silfverberg, Ritchie, Welinski, Conditional 3rd (2nd if Panarin signs extension with ANA)

Trade 2:
MTL - Pacioretty
ANA - Silfverberg, Pettersson, Conditional 3rd (2nd if extension is signed)

21 Jul 2018 15:02:20
Huge no from Columbus and Montreal.

21 Jul 2018 15:25:45
Maybe from Montreal but defiant no from Columbus.

21 Jul 2018 21:30:54
Pacioretty: 2017-2018 17G 20A 37P -16, $4.5MM UFA 2019, age 29
Silfverberg: 2017-2018 18G 27A 45P E, $3.75MM UFA 2019, age 27

Why would Anaheim even add to a straight swap?

Pacioretty has onerous contract demands ($8MM x 8 years) . He has a chip on his shoulder for signing a team friendly contract with Montreal and wants his next contract to pay back some of the value he gave away on his last one. I wouldn't touch that baby with a 10 foot pole or at best view him as a rental.

PS If you tell me to look back at his previous years, fine. I see his stats. But players are paid for future performance, not past performance, and Pacioretty's terrible season last year killed his trade value. If you're still unconvinced, you can have Seabrook.

22 Jul 2018 07:47:03
Yeah, def not a deal MTL says no to.

23 Jul 2018 04:23:35
no from columbus on first
no from anaheim on second.

04 Jul 2018 03:16:13
Anaheim trades: montour, 2nd round pick

Toronto trades: Nylander

What do you guys think? Maybe other pieces added

04 Jul 2018 04:32:52
No from toronto my dude

04 Jul 2018 04:33:14
Value is there.

04 Jul 2018 05:01:18
I agree McJesus the value is there for Nylanders skate gards. Would you trade Drais for Montour and 2nd. Let’s hear your argument on how Drais has more value then Nylander.

04 Jul 2018 05:38:20
VB drais absolutely does not have more value then Nylander. It's close but by stats, age and skill level i'd say nylander has more value. And i love edmonton and hate toronto so that's a pretty non biased opinion on my behalf

04 Jul 2018 06:15:32
I remember saying on here that I would have taken draisitl 1st overall the day he was drafted and I stick by that. But him and nylander are pretty close. The difference in the two could be determined with nylanders new contract. if he signs for say 6 mil per then he would have more value then IMO.

04 Jul 2018 06:52:21
Because draisaitl is a centerman who put up back to back 70 point seasons and is just as young and is the second best player on the oilers while Nylander is like the third or fourth according to all those leaf fans lol .

04 Jul 2018 08:48:48
Even with 8,5m cap drai has more value, he is Center without mcdavid he would have been nr1 center, Numbers till it all? 77 and 70 points as center makes he's value higher than Nylander end of story.

04 Jul 2018 12:12:49
C, Draisaitl 8.5M
C, Nylander N/A (maybe 6M)
• both 22
• Nylander shoots R
• back to back 61P seasons nylander
• 77P and 70P seasons for Draisaitl

But drais also played with the best player in the league. Nylander is faster and has better hands. If he signs for less than 6M or exactly 6M then Nylander hands down. But its close for me.

04 Jul 2018 12:26:46
I think they’re very close in value but Billy and happy are right contract says a lot also Drais had the best player in the NHL to play with and without him he was not nearly as effective. I’ll give him this tho in the 2016-2017 playoffs Drais looked like a stud.

04 Jul 2018 13:03:31
Wow let’s over hype no compete nylander this guy is a solid hockey player he is a piece though. Nylander and drais value are not close at all drais has way more value. Nylander couldn’t even stay on the first line last year cause some games he decided to take off. I think leafs need to move him and get back a different piece that can help them out.

04 Jul 2018 13:43:37
Well, leave to vb fo completely change the topic and make it about a player not even mentioned. And saying drias got to play with the best player in the world, yes, but nylander is playing with a bunch of talentless chumps? don't think so.

04 Jul 2018 14:35:32
Draisatl has more value. Nylander s next contract would have to be really good to change that. Nylander was drafted as a centre also and has played a bit of it, but obviously not as much as draisatl because he didn’t have to here with Matthews/ Kadri/ bozak and will never have to now with tavares. So Centre over wing makes a big difference. However Draisatl centring his own line has been FAR less effective than riding shotgun with mcdavid. Same age, draisatl the advantage in points. He has more value but not by a ton. So make that same trade up there and add in Anaheim throwing in another 2nd round pick or B prospect, would you do it mcjesus?!

04 Jul 2018 14:38:12
And saying Draisatl is Edmonton’s second best player and Nylander is leafs 4th best so he’s better is just stupid lol max paccioretty is Montreal’s best player and Malkin is Pittsburgh’s second best so patches has more value lol see how dumb that argument is?

04 Jul 2018 15:18:22
Same contract I'd take drais but if nylander is making close to 3 mil year less a year then I'd really have to think about it. i mean you can still get 20 goal scorers sometimes for that 3 mil. Right now drais is not 3 mil per year better then nylander or even 2.5mil.

04 Jul 2018 15:47:42
Well said Jim.

04 Jul 2018 15:47:13
Jim I wouldn’t make the trade if Anaheim added more for drat nope! We need him a lot more than we need Montour, hence why I think trade ain’t too bad above since leafs could use Montour more than Nylander. I’m also a big fan of Montour as well so the trades not bad.

04 Jul 2018 17:11:50
Agree with Habby. Contract is huge. It’s like the argument I made before about scheifele and mcdavid. Mcdavid is clearly the better player. But scheifele at 6.1 million for 8 years compared to 12.5 mill could almost equal itnout. Because trading mcdavid for scheifele straight up is actually like mcdavid for scheifele and trouba, or scheifele and Wheeler with what they would lose to afford mcdavid. So if Nylander signs for 6 mill, then it’s like nylander and Connor brown or Nylander and zach hyman.

04 Jul 2018 21:22:34
Well just looked up some facts and draisaitl is 1/2 Oilers that scored more without McDavid then playing with him. So guess that whole playing with the best player in the world doesn't really apply if he does better centering his own line.

05 Jul 2018 04:51:42
Which season? When he had his biggest year (2016/ 17) it was a lot more with mcdavid than without, look it up and then correct me if I’m wrong.

03 Jul 2018 05:08:42
To Leafs
• (D) Justin Faulk
• (D) Josh Manson
To Hurricanes
• (C) Nazem Kadri
To Ducks
• (2019) 1st-Round Pick - TOR
• (C) Connor Brown

Morgan Rielly - Justin Faulk
Jake Gardiner - Nikita Zaitsev
Ron Hainsey - Josh Manson

03 Jul 2018 05:27:22
I think the ducks value manson more then that.

03 Jul 2018 05:37:43
Yeah, Habbys right. They just gave him a long term deal. And I know they like Connor brown because they wanted him last off season in a vatanen trade, but that 1st should be pretty late (I hope) . Ducks want more.

03 Jul 2018 09:01:48
So a pick that's prolly between 25 and 30 plus Brown gets you Manson? Yeah, sure.

03 Jul 2018 16:17:32
I’d love josh Manson. Take out Faulk and add for Manson. Faulk is garbage deffensively and the leafs already have enough deffensive D.

02 Jul 2018 03:01:00
3 Trades to help Edmonton next season:

02 Jul 2018 03:50:37
way too much for skinner and faulk.

02 Jul 2018 19:35:44
Zucc for nuge is beyond pathetic. Jeez and both the free agent signings were already signed July 1st.

30 Jun 2018 19:55:03
Trying to gauge EK’s value is hard. However, here are a few deals that I could see happening (in terms of realism, at least) :

(D) Erik Karlsson + (RW) Bobby Ryan + (G) Marcus Hogberg to the Vegas Golden Knights in exchange for (LW) Tomas Tatar + (C) Nick Suzuki + (D) Colin Miller + 2019 1st Round Draft Selection.

(D) Erik Karlsson + (LW) Marian Gaborik to the Vegas Golden Knights in exchange for (C) Cody Glass + (D) Shea Theodore + 2019 1st Round Draft Selection.

(D) Erik Karlsson + (C) Zack Smith + 2019 4th Round Draft Selection to the Anaheim Ducks in exchange for (D) Josh Manson + (C) Sam Steel + 2020 2nd Round Draft Selection.

(D) Erik Karlsson + (RW) Bobby Ryan to the Colorado Avalanche in exchange for (D) Connor Timmins + (C) Colin Wilson + (LW) Vladislav Kamenev + 2019 1st Round Draft Selection (OTT) .

30 Jun 2018 20:03:48
First two aren’t bad, but the ducks one I think is pretty bad for Ottawa. I like Manson and think Steele is a great player but that’s not enough for Karlsson. And a 2020 2nd? No way from Sens.

30 Jun 2018 20:47:06
1st 2 are to much for Karlsson IMO because he’s being dealt as a rentel but i like the other 2 no way he gets Glass AND Theodore. Lindholm and Karlsson would be an unreal.

30 Jun 2018 21:25:53

why do you still comment?
to give people laughs?

30 Jun 2018 22:53:32
Yes that’s why I’m practicing my stand up act how do you think it’s going?

01 Jul 2018 05:01:21
When doing stand up you want people to laugh with you. Not at you.

01 Jul 2018 06:03:05
It’s kind of a new generation thing I’m bringing a new style that I’m going to Trade mark.

03 Jul 2018 03:15:27
Its going to be hard for ottawa to gauge what ek is worth if they throw a bunch of crap in to go with him, it sounds like that's the route they want to take. but as a sens fan, i really hope they sell him on his own.

29 Jun 2018 09:50:07
Lucic to ANA to be closer to his family.

To Anaheim
• (LW) Milan Lucic
• (2019) 1st Round Pick
• (C) Ryan Strome
To Edmonton
• (RW) Corey Perry

29 Jun 2018 15:28:19
Corey perry’s Contract is worse than Lucic’s.

29 Jun 2018 15:57:36
No it’s not at all he’s still a 1st line player putting up 50 points ( 70 with McDavid ) also he’s a great veteran presence. Lucic is an ahler with way larger term but at 2.25 mil less.

29 Jun 2018 17:14:01
Marner a franchise player now Lucic is an AHLer. Holy over exaggerating lately vbb. Wow.

29 Jun 2018 17:14:08
Wtf vb.

29 Jun 2018 20:19:47
Okay he’s not an AHLer but he’s a 4th liner that’s no better then Ryan Reeves. Definitely not worth 3 million let alone 6 million. And I don’t take back what I said about Marner he has the potential to be a franchise changing player and he’s already a game changer.

29 Jun 2018 22:28:53
Wow. 😳🙄.

29 Jun 2018 23:57:38
Marner is good but not great I’m happy he is not on my team, I wouldn’t wanna pay him that much (future) to just be an ok goal scorer! He’s far from elite he reminds me of a worse Johnny hockey.

30 Jun 2018 16:19:34
You’re happy he’s not on your team? Ya nobody wants a fast 21 year old with 61 and 69 points in their first 2 seasons. You have no idea what’s he's going to be paid and I’m sure it will be similar to what other players in the league get paid to bring what he brings. Nobody, other than vbb’s is saying Marner is a superstar but I’m sure any team would love to have him. Don’t be a dummie, we have enough of them on this site already.

29 Jun 2018 06:00:00
We all heard the rumours about Lucic. His family is in LA. He wants to be close to them. Kings, Sharks, and Ducks won’t want him. Coyotes are the best option.

Coyotes: Strome
Oilers: Lucic and 1st 2019

Oilers get good cap space. Also, Strome isn’t working out with the coyotes. Maybe with his brother and his friend, McDavid, things would be better for him. He is also a first round pick with good potential.
Arizona gets good leadership for the young talented players and they get a 1st rounder.

29 Jun 2018 06:28:51
I saw the article you got this from and as I don’t think coyotes would part with Strome for that, I do believe they would consider moving him if oilers added another piece that makes it interesting. Just idk what they’d add.

29 Jun 2018 16:43:03
Yah no way the Yotes touch that Strome still has potential imo Lucic just about cancels out all the value the 1st holds.

26 Jun 2018 16:58:08


Anaheim gets a 30 goal scorer

Montreal gets a future top 6 center

Do both teams accept?

26 Jun 2018 18:09:48
Not bad. I’m sure habs fans will want a 1st rounder, but Sam Steel is a good prospect in a position of dire need. I know they just drafted a boat load of centres but steel is closer than any of them besides maybe Kotkaniemi. If paccioretty doesn’t wanna be there, like his signing demands seem to indicate, this would be terrible.

26 Jun 2018 18:48:16
Unfortunate their 3 way trade didn't work at the trade deadline. Apparently they had something in place with NYI and BUF around RoR, Patches, and 11 OAP. would have been epic.

27 Jun 2018 03:57:12
That woulda been sweet hey Turkey? I hope they can somehow get Oreily.

27 Jun 2018 10:30:11
I like the idea.

18 Jun 2018 11:55:10
Heard that Anaheim was in on lucic

Would this be fair

Edm: lucic , jones

Ana: Perry

Perrys contract is bad too

18 Jun 2018 16:48:13
No Edmonton definitely adds a lot Perry is still a top line player while Lucic is terrible.

13 Jun 2018 16:04:48
Corey Perry RW
3rd 2019

Milan Lucic LW
2nd 2018

13 Jun 2018 16:27:43
Oilers add a lot Lucic has nagitive value. Perry is still great.

13 Jun 2018 16:55:10
Perry great 😂.

13 Jun 2018 17:03:59
No from Anaheim. Remember when the oilers were offered Perry and a 1st for Mike Comrie? But, Lowe demanded Comrie pay back his signing bonus and that killed it.

13 Jun 2018 19:52:43
Hahaha, great players usually get more than 33 points if they're a scorer. 16 rookies had more point so I guess they're all superstars.

13 Jun 2018 20:52:59
Spittin chiclets listener, Pitt? Haha love it.

14 Jun 2018 00:40:45
Yah I agree 33 Point scorers are 3rd liners but I’m not really sure how that’s Relevant considering he scored 50 points this season. On a off year. Put him with McDavid like Lucic he’s good for 35+ Goals.

12 Jun 2018 06:27:11
Off the rails

Oil: Lucic

Ducks: Perry


12 Jun 2018 13:04:34
Perry is paid 2.5 million more and is three years older but I’d still rather his contact. It’s 3 years compared to 5 but mostly it’s because he’s still a good player.

12 Jun 2018 13:30:35
Perry would be Edmonton 3rd to best player. Lucic is garbage huge no from Anaheim.

07 Jun 2018 11:11:57
Apparently the Blackhawks won't tolerate being bad this year and will make a massive offer for Tavares. Also Ducks have requested Perry's no trade list and the Pens are looking to trade Kessel.
I got a couple trades i can think of.

• John Tavares
• Nick Schmaltz
• Corey Crawford
• Alex DeBrincat

• Corey Perry
• 1st Round Pick
• Artem Anisimov

• Phil Kessel
• Brent Seabrook
• Anthony Duclair

• Sam Bennett
• John Hayden
• 2nd Round Pick

Brandon Saad - Jonathan Toews - Patrick Kane
Phil Kessel - John Tavares - Corey Perry
Tomas Jurco - Sam Bennett - Patrick Sharp
Vince Hinostroza - David Kampf - Andreas Martinsen

Imagine those lines!!!!!

07 Jun 2018 12:29:06
Trade 1 - Let's trade our future and the franchise goalie for a twenty extra days to convince JT to sign

Trade 2 - Future young star for aging overpayed winger

Trade 3 - C'mon it's 2018, not 2010. Seabrook's contract in one of the worst in the league, adding Duclair only lessens the nagative value and you want an NHL Top10 scoring forward in return? (and slot him on his off wing)

Trade 4 - This one only is close to fair.

Sharp has retired, Martinsen is a UFA and propably won't be back. Also who is Hawks starting goalie in this scenario?

07 Jun 2018 13:56:43
1) salary cap
2) giving away futures much?

07 Jun 2018 21:17:08
So what happens after John Tavares refuses to sign in Chicago then resigns in New York after they get those premium assets?

05 Jun 2018 05:40:22
ANA: Ritchie, 2nd (2018)
CAR: Teravainen

Carolina gets bigger and a good pick while Anaheim gets a better depth scorer.

05 Jun 2018 06:54:39
Doesn’t make Carolina better tho?

02 Jun 2018 19:26:09
Oil: 10th ov

Ducks: Montour.

02 Jun 2018 23:48:00
Add Anaheim’s 23rd overal pick and it’s closer IMO. Even then I don’t think it would be the right trade for Edmonton unless they see him having a big season and being a top 3 D.

03 Jun 2018 00:53:12
Not bad but can't see Ducks trading Montour, esp not to a division rival.

03 Jun 2018 02:49:12

No way your getting Montour by dropping 13 spots, anaheim would laugh at that.

And tbh, with the amount of dmen Anaheim has lost in the last little while (Theodore, Vatanen), i'd see them wanting to keep a top four of Montour, Lindholm, Fowler and Manson. BUt the proposed trade is not too bad.

03 Jun 2018 20:38:56
@TSS yeah fair enough, there top 4 is solid and don’t have much else as of now. But don’t they have a few good prospects coming up? So possibly be open to trading him in a few years and maybe then he’ll be worth a top 10 pick.

Honestly I don’t think trading Montour to move into the top 10 would be that bad for Anaheim. Aren’t the top 4 D suppose to be future top pair D? Always a chance they aren’t and also a chance they don’t make it to 10 I guess.

05 May 2018 04:54:33

Boston Trades: Rights to Tommy Wingels and a 5th 2019

Anaheim Trades: 4th 2018.

05 May 2018 06:42:43
it works out value-wise but I don't know that anaheim has the cap room since it has to re-sign montour and ritchie to much bigger contracts than they have now.

24 Apr 2018 10:58:20
Trying to rework the flames, let me know what you think is accurate:

Cgy: trades brodie
Ott: trades hoffman

Cgy:trades stone
Tor: trades johnsson + 3rd rounder

Cgy: trades lazar and a 3rd rounder
Ana: trades kase

Gaudreau monahan hoffman
Tkachuk backlund frolik
Bennett jankiwski ferland/mangiapan
Johnsson kase mangiapane/ferland

Giordano hamilton
Kulak hamonic
Valimaki andersson

24 Apr 2018 13:07:10
-I think Ottawa would want younger players back if they were to trade Hoffman.
-Toronto laughs at you, they aren't reading Andreas Johnsson for that. They have developed him for a while and really like him.
-Anaheim says no.

24 Apr 2018 13:07:22
Leafs will keep Johnson no interest in Stone.

24 Apr 2018 16:23:35
So easy no from every team not Calgary.

24 Apr 2018 20:43:29
I know he doesn’t have a big name but that is such an easy no from Anaheim. Look up his stats, he should get around 50+ points next season.

24 Apr 2018 12:04:28
I personally value Brodie a couple notches over Hoffman because of position and the fact that Brodie is consistly a solid defensemen who acumulates points while Hoffman is very good but when he dosnt have the puck dosnt bring much else to the play. If he played a grinding styke as well i'd say it was a good trade but for his production ( around 50 points a year) you don't get a defensemen who gets alnost that himself ( more like 40 points) and also play a great solid all around game.

05 Apr 2018 11:35:02
Mtl: Chuck, Gallagher

Ana: Rakell, Jacob Larson

Mtl gets a good real number one center who's only 24 and coming off a 66 points season. Anaheim gets Chuck who's coming off a meh season and needs a change of scenery. They also get Gallagher who's going to become instantly a fan favorite in Anaheim. Mtl adds a good defensive prospect in the pipeline.

05 Apr 2018 13:07:01
Lmao. Ducks laughs.

05 Apr 2018 13:10:39
Rakel is not a number one Center he is a winger and would be 3rd on the depth chart behind Kessler and Getzlaf.

05 Apr 2018 15:19:29
Not even close. Habs would add to galchenyuk ans gallahher to get rakell alone. 24 years old, back to back great years and signed for 5 more years at less than $4mill. That’s a contract that a team can’t afford to trade, and definitely not adding a good prospect with it lol.

17 Mar 2018 01:33:24
It's doubtful if Philadelphia can afford Wayne Simmonds' ($3.975MM UFA in 2019) next contract. He's a consistent high 20's-low 30's goal scorer, great on the power play, and has many intangibles. If Hextall opts to trade him before the draft, I'd propose:

Arizona: Simmonds
Philadelphia: Nick Merkeley, 2018 2nd, Conditional 2019 3rd (if Arizona re-signs Simmonds and he scores 20+ goals in 2018-19)

Arizona's power play is awful, they need veteran leadership, and goals - all of which Simmonds can bring. They also have the cap space to re-sign him.

Anaheim: Simmonds (25% retained)
Philadelphia: Sam Steel or Max Jones, 2018 1st, Conditional 2019 3rd (if Anaheim re-signs Simmonds and he scores 20+ goals in 2018-19)

Anaheim is less likely to re-sign given their cap situation is tighter. Anaheim's power play is also bad and he'd be a great addition to their third line and can easily play up the roster if necessary. Anaheim is a borderline playoff team this year, but they've had abysmal injuries and will likely be better next year.

17 Mar 2018 12:29:43
I think the Arizona one is bad. The ducks one is closer. Think of the forwards that moved this year at the deadline, like statsny as a rental (1st, prospect) Kane as a rental (cond. 1st, 4th ans prospect), Tatar with some term left (1st, 2nd ans 3rd) and Hartman (1st, 4th and prospect) . Simmonds with a year left, especially in the one you have Philly retaining off his already great cap hit is worth more. Merkeley and a 2nd isn’t close. They would just keep him for a playoff run and let him walk if that’s the return.

17 Mar 2018 13:19:15
Arizona are still in rebuild mode
And Ducks ain’t giving top prospect + 1rd pick lmao.

17 Mar 2018 13:33:25
Unbiased Jim:

I tried to design both trades as though the return was even ie Steel or Jones/ Ducks 1st = Merkeley/ Arizona 2nd given the conditional picks are near the same where both teams would finish in next year's standings. The salary retention evens it out a bit more but Anaheim needs it more than Arizona. Simmonds will likely walk for Anaheim but Arizona is where he can get paid. Given your rental return, I think I may be undervaluing Simmonds (I'm a Flyers fan btw) ; I just didn't want to be the prototypical homer on here ie Simmonds for Dahlin+.


I don't think the Coyotes are actually in rebuild mode. They got rid of Tippett last year and traded a high 1st (7 OA if my memory is correct) and Deangelo for Rantaa and Stepan. I think they want to move talent into the present to become respectable again. I think this fits.

I put in Merkeley because he seems to be a Hextall type player: great hockey IQ, centre who can play wing, not afraid to get into the dirty areas, great vision and playmaking. He's Travis Konecny 2.0.

Yeah. Your reasoning makes sense. I think that when a player like Simmonds becamomes available, a lot of teams will bid. And when a player like him that makes less than $4 mill is available, just about every team is able to make that cap number work in an offseason deal. Having 20+ teams interested is going to get the price up.

Since Bobby Ryan has apparently no value
To ANA - Bobby Ryan (OTT retains 20%)

To OTT - JT Brown, 3 rd pick

Eaves to LTIR would clear enough cap space

Rakell / Getz / Perry
Cogs / Kesler / silvy
Ritchie / Henriq/ Kase
Wags / verm-grant/ Ryan

OTT dumps Ryans contract and can extend Karlsson or trade him for full value to rebuild.

Ducks have more important things to spend 5.5-6 mill on. And if your thinking is that he had great success in Anaheim, he did, while playing with Getz and Perry. He’s not finding that game again playing 4th like with vermette and Wagner.

My thinking is that it’s a lot cheaper than renting Mcdonagh or Evander Kane. He’s skilled enough to play well against others teams 4th lines and won’t be a defensive liability. Would trade him after the season for a pick (Ari) to dump the remaining salary that could be used for Kase Montour etc.

I get what you’re saying but This has been a hard contract to dump already. If ducks take it, then no one else wants it, now they start losing the young guys that they can’t afford, or have to give a prospect and a 1st for another team to take it from them, it’s no cheaper than paying the price for a true rental like Kane or getting a Hoffman or patches at the end of the day. Think it’s a bad idea unless like the other rumours, a bad deal goes back (lucic)

Yeah I didn’t think his trade value was that bad. Originally was going to try to swing a way to get Kane but GMBM doesn’t want to give up the prospects. Figured if Ryan could have a playoffs similar to last year he would have a little more value than now. I agree with you though not worth losing good prospects if you can trade him down the road.

Can’t trade*.
