20 Aug 2019 11:17:39
Calgary Flames - T.J Brodie, Ty Parsons, Dillon Dube & 1st-Round Draft Pick

New Jersey Devils - Taylor Hall

(Devils continue their strong rebuild and acquire a top 4 defencemen, a solid former memorial cup champion goalie prospect, a solid skilled center & first round draft pick)

Calgary Flames - Mikael Backlund

Anaheim Ducks - Rickard Rakell

(Ducks acquire a good second line center who could be very useful on their pk, and flames acquire a lw who could play rw due to being right handed, similar in point totals)

Calgary Flames - Michael Frolik

Columbus Blue Jackets - 2nd-Round Draft Pick

(Jackets acquire a top 6 rw who would be a nice fit on the pk and can give them more speed, flames shed cap)

The losing Frolik, Brodie would give them the cap space to resign Hall

Johnny Gaudreau - Sean Monahan - Rickard Rakell

Taylor Hall - Elias Lindholm - Matthew Tkachuk

Milan Lucic - Sam Bennett - Mark Jankowski

Andrew Mangiapane - Derek Ryan - Austin Czarnik

Mark Giordano - Rasmus Andersson

Noah Hanifin - Travis Hamonic

Oliver Kylington - Rinat Valiev

20 Aug 2019 13:36:26
Taylor Hall is going to market. That's a lot to give up, especially for a guy on an expiring deal.

20 Aug 2019 13:40:34
No from Anaheim. Rakell is one of their best players and Backlund fits perfectly with calgary.

20 Aug 2019 13:50:50
Easy no's for all teams not named Calgary.

20 Aug 2019 23:10:08
Taylor Hall will not be getting traded he just bought a home in New Jersey a couple days ago. Also terrible offer for Rakel.

19 Aug 2019 20:01:17
Anaheim Trades
2nd Round Pick 2021

Buffalo Trades


20 Aug 2019 02:40:58
Anaheim Declines. Rakell is their best player on the team.

20 Aug 2019 03:33:11
I don’t know in what world a player who scored 43 points in 68 games is the best player on the Ducks.

05 Aug 2019 10:54:50
EDM: Puljajarvi, 2nd
ANA: Kase.

05 Aug 2019 12:49:41
Buffalo got jokiharju for Nylander, nylander hasn't proven anything yet so if oilers add a 2nd, the return should be higher.

05 Aug 2019 19:17:14
Yeah my Nylander doesn’t b*tch and moan whenever something doesn’t go his way. At least he’s ready to work for it.

05 Aug 2019 20:35:02
Well swechamp, the common thought on the chi-buf trade was chi took it where the sun don't shine. Not really a trade you would use as comparable when one team clearly won the trade.

06 Aug 2019 10:07:12
@Swechamp, the difference between the nylander trade and this one is that Puljajarvi has made it very clear he wants out, he has demanded a trade, and he's unproven in the nhl, yes he still has potential but at this point his value is at a low right now as teams know he wants out and the situation. so edmonton doesn't have any leverage here really. thus why i said add the 2nd. yes kase is still young but he's proven a bit more when it comes to being an nhl player.

03 Aug 2019 21:58:57
To Anaheim:
To Leafs:
Rackell, Comtois, Kase

04 Aug 2019 12:28:27
You don’t think one of Anaheim’s many stud defenders should be included? Maybe Larsson instead of Comtois?

04 Aug 2019 12:33:07
No matter how many times a Marner Trade is posted it won’t change the fact he won’t be traded especially not for a deal that not fill any positional needs.

04 Aug 2019 18:32:07
Manson had one good year and people think he is the best player on Anaheim. Last year he was terrible. Leafs pass on him.
Lindholm is a LHD, and so is Larsson and Fowler. Plus all 3 had off years.
Larsson hasn’t really proven anything yet. He only has 5 points in 53 games.

Comtois and Kase in the other hand look like they could have huge breakout years.

Plus if Rackell can have a bounce back year, then the leafs basically replace Marner by adding 3 guys on good contracts.

05 Aug 2019 00:22:15
Lindholm would be the starting point in a Marner Trade.

Anaheim Trades

Toronto Trades

Thoughts ?

30 Jul 2019 01:40:27
Anaheim would have to add. Hyman is a top six player. Ritchie is bottom six player. A second line forward is more valuable than a third line player in the same position.

30 Jul 2019 02:45:11
Anaheim declines.

30 Jul 2019 04:19:53
Ritchie > Hyman easily.

30 Jul 2019 06:37:48
hYmaN iS a ToP 6 pLaYEr.

30 Jul 2019 14:52:57
Drake caggiula and Brandon perlini play on hawks top 6 last year. I consider them bottom 6 players, not top 6. Hyman is a bottom 6 player that plays with the top six.

30 Jul 2019 22:52:06
TyBa, . There is no way in the world Ritchie has now value than Hyman. The guys plays tons of crucial minutes. Ritchie was drafted 5 years ago and has really done nothing. Heart and soul players like Hyman have a lot more value.

31 Jul 2019 00:20:28
Interesting how someone posted a NRitchie for Puljujarvi trade and it's almost even with Agree and Disagree when Puljujarvi has been a complete bust, this is a more fair trade than that one and zero agrees.
Are we Leaf or Pinball bias on here or both?

31 Jul 2019 00:25:39
So isn't NRitchie really a Bottom 6 playing in the Top 6 to then Shootsmcgee?

31 Jul 2019 01:35:08
Hyman > Ritchie imo. Hyman plays a much more important game

31 Jul 2019 07:33:17
I'd still take Puljujarvis all-world upside over a random bottom 6er like Hyman that you find on every street's corner any day of the week and twice on sunday.

29 Jul 2019 17:47:12
Anaheim: Nick Ritchie
Edmonton: Jesse Puljajarvi

Change of scenery trade, both players get a new start with a new team,

29 Jul 2019 20:02:57
Nick Ritchie is better. Good power forward

29 Jul 2019 21:28:25
Ritchie is better now, no doubt but sometimes take a flyer on a dude. Some players don't really hit their stride for a few years in. Seguin was a disappointment in boston and became one of the top forwards in the league after being traded. Just got to wait it out a bit sometimes.

29 Jul 2019 22:24:05
True, but depends on if anaheim wants to win before Getzlaf retires. Giving up a proven player for an unproven player wouldn't make sense

20 Jul 2019 10:38:50
Habs - Karl Alzner

Ducks - Ryan Kesler & 2nd-Round Draft Pick

Alzner Cap Hit ( 4.625M @ 3YR )

Kesler Cap Hit ( 6.875M @ 3YR )

Reasoning : Canadiens gets a more servicable player who can play a nice shutdown role in Montreal. Ducks shed a decent amount of cap space for wiggle room to improve their rosters' needs.

Montreal Canadiens Lines -

Max Domi - Phillip Danault - Brendan Gallagher

Jonathan Drouin - Jesper Kotkaniemi - Joel Armia

Tomas Tatar - Ryan Kesler - Artturi Lehkonen

Paul Byron - Ryan Poehling - Jordan Weal

Victor Mete - Shea Weber

Brett Kulak - Jeff Petry

Ben Chariot - Noah Juulsen

20 Jul 2019 12:49:01
Kessler is on LTIR so Montreal would be adding not Anaheim.

20 Jul 2019 14:32:28
Yeah but from everything I've been hearing is he intends to come back so Montreal would not be adding they would just keep alzner and not make this deal at all. Considering it has the potential to put them in a much worse cap situation and they still don't get anything worth putting in the line up.

20 Jul 2019 14:54:37
Didn’t read all your post until now but you do realize Kessler will never play hockey again right?

20 Jul 2019 18:19:50
that's not a fact vb.

20 Jul 2019 18:33:46
I heard that too vbb but from what I've heard since is he plans to return asap.

20 Jul 2019 19:52:05
it's a hip surgery and it's a lengthy recovery process, he's unlikely to play at all next season but you never know. with the possibility of a locked out season after that and kesler's age it could be the last of him, but that's not factual.

16 Jul 2019 10:41:40
Toronto: Nylander,Sandin


16 Jul 2019 11:39:52
Let's flip a different Trade that's similar to yours @DetroitMantha.

Detroit Trades

Toronto Trades

Tell me is that a fair Trade?

16 Jul 2019 13:54:55
Terrible for Toronto.

16 Jul 2019 14:13:48
The trades bad Pinball but Rakel>>Hyman.

16 Jul 2019 15:02:16
Nylander still worth what a good young 2nd line forward can get. B+ Prospect and a first.

16 Jul 2019 18:35:22
Lindholm and Rakell for Kapanen.

16 Jul 2019 19:49:39
Wouldn’t trade Sandin straight up for Rakel ( he’s the highest regarded prospect in their organization)

17 Jul 2019 04:47:26
Rackell has a fantastic contract. He’s a great player. I’m not so sure the difference between Rackell and Nylander is Liljegren. I wouldn’t think so anyway.

16 Jul 2019 01:44:38

Ana:Rakell,Lindholm,conditional 1rd2020,Kase

Base of previous trade that I thought was good but maybe could use a tiny but of mods. Condition is if Marner doesn't get 90 points this year the first becomes a second

16 Jul 2019 07:54:22
Marner certainly doesn't get all this. Rakell is a v good replacement on a superb contract to begin with. Lindholm is a top pairing D. Kase is a Top 6er and that 1st could easily be a top 5 pick.
You're insane if you think 12M-Marner will get all that.

16 Jul 2019 08:58:30
Biiiig no from anaheim c'mon man

16 Jul 2019 13:55:21
Terrible for Anaheim.

16 Jul 2019 14:17:10
Take out case and make the conditions 120 points I’m pretty confident he can put up 120 points next Season.

16 Jul 2019 17:59:28
I would take out case and just make the first a second.

Anaheim still has to negotiate a contract, and lindholm has a lot of value.

17 Jul 2019 04:51:56
Marner is a valuable player, but he’s not THATT valuable. If Leafs could get a return like this for MArner, their biggest problem would be fitting all these guys in under cap.

15 Jul 2019 23:33:17
Toronto sends Marner and Liljegren and a pick to Anaheim for Manson, Rakell and Kase.

Toronto's defense would be Reilly Manson
Muzzin Barrie
Dermott Ceci

15 Jul 2019 23:50:38
I’d be really disappointed if this is what Toronto got i'd rather 4 1sts I love Rakels contract but he’s a huge down grade and Manson is a solid number 3 but he’s nothing special. I’d consider if it was Lindholm instead of Manson.

15 Jul 2019 23:51:21
Probably the best Marner proposal yet tho.

16 Jul 2019 00:24:46
Although Rakell is a downgrade he still is pretty good. Manson is the tough physical presence they need on defense and I think Kase could be a good 2nd liner one day.

16 Jul 2019 00:26:21
The 4 1sts won't help Toronto with there current lineup. By the time those players are ready to play if at all, Toronto's team will be very different. I would rather players than picks.

16 Jul 2019 00:48:28
Manson is a deffensman they need once Muzzin is gone the leafs will have no one physical on the backend what if the leafs added a 2nd and Anaheim added a 1st?

06 Jul 2019 23:17:00
Anaheim Trades

Toronto Trades
JLindgren (AHL)

The Ducks are said to be looking to unload NRitchie as it's time for a change of scenery for NRitchie, Hyman is a good replacement plus depth on the Right Side Defense is what the Ducks are searching for.

For the Leafs it's a bit of Cap Space Relief plus getting a different look adding a Power Forward is something I believe puts more balance on the Top 6.

Thoughts ?

07 Jul 2019 04:22:01
That's a decent offer, but can Toronto take that cap?

07 Jul 2019 14:44:35
@Shootsmcgee NRitchie's Cap hit is lower than Hyman's if Toronto can get Marner at 10 to 10.5m and they put Horton's 5.3m yes the Leafs are just under the Cap.

07 Jul 2019 18:04:59
Ah, should of looked, thought Ritchie was more.

07 Jul 2019 19:27:31
Shootsmcgee probably thinks Jesperi Lindgren And Timothy Lilijgren are the same player LOL.

08 Jul 2019 17:56:18
Babcock would break Dubas legs if he made this trade.

Hyman makes more than Ritchie for a reason.

04 Jul 2019 12:27:02
Honestly FOR THE RIGHT VALUE I'm kinda warming up to the idea of trading Mitch Marner for the sole reason of cap troubles.

Here are some trades that could benefit both teams

Toronto: Mitch Marner, Fredrick Andersson And Joseph Woll/Ian Scott

Anaheim: Hampus Lindholm, Rickard Rakel And John Gibson


Toronto: Mitch Marner And Cody Ceci

Islanders: Ryan Pulock, Noah Dobson and 1st 2020

Maybe add Timothy Lilijgren for Wahlstrom, Bellows or Ho Sang to help the Depth on the Right side

What do you guys think?

04 Jul 2019 14:55:52
With the Cody Ceci and Alex Kerfoot deals officially signed the leafs now have 3.77 mil in cap space and 9 mil with Horton on LTIR more moves will likely be coming.

04 Jul 2019 16:43:13
It seems like there signing everyone BUT Marner. Who’s someone they’d move? Nylander?

04 Jul 2019 17:18:43
Probably trade (or more likely waive, as I doubt anybody wants them) a scrub or two to free up an extra mill or so.

04 Jul 2019 18:01:25
Yes players like
Marincin, Moore etc.
Can be moved to the AHL list.
Plus besides Horton, Hyman and Dermott can be moved to the injured list as well which Free's up 13m.

04 Jul 2019 18:19:56
I don’t see Nylander getting moved as no one would Bay the price.

04 Jul 2019 20:20:19
You got to start the season cap compliment pinball. So is your theory sign marner after the season's started? Or why you even bring that up? They really need to sell nylander for whatever they can get. Wont be much.

04 Jul 2019 21:24:41
They can sign Marner and still be cap compliant.

04 Jul 2019 22:40:29
Shoots. They can be 10 percent over the cap until the start of the season. At that point they can move contracts to make up that 10 percent.

04 Jul 2019 22:41:50
Ltir only kicks in 1st day of the season, Horton's contract and whoever else still counts till then and still need to be under the cap at the start of the season including those contracts. do I have that wrong?

04 Jul 2019 22:45:51
And can sign marner and be cap complient cause it's the offseason unsportsmanlike . 3.77 mil left in cap space so think nylander is probably a goner if they can find a fool gm to take it.

04 Jul 2019 23:08:46
They can sign marner for how much and still be compliant?

05 Jul 2019 12:01:54
Yes Mcgee, I believe you have that wrong (don’t feel bad though because it’s complicated AF; i thought the same thing as you up until a few weeks ago) . Basically, LTIR can be used in the offseason for players like Horton.

As per Capfriendly:
To use off-season LTIR the team must provide doctors proof that the player in question will continue to be injured at the beginning of the regular season for 10 NHL games and 24 calendar days.

Given the nature of Horton’s issues (he’s never playing hockey again) he would qualify.

04 Jul 2019 12:26:38
Anaheim Trades

Toronto Trades
Timashov (AHL)
JLindgren (AHL)

Leafs save a bit of Cap Space and also get a Young Power Forward that plays LWing the weakest area upfront on the Leafs.
The Ducks are more in a rebuild and adding not just Hyman as a sound 2 way forward but also Timashov and JLindgren makes it an easy yes to a Trade Proposal like this.

Thoughts ?

04 Jul 2019 20:24:21
Does Toronto have any good trade chips? Or just spare parts and ahl players? That's only thing you ever propose. And expect a good return. Its mind numbing.

04 Jul 2019 22:36:00
Lol what? Hyman would be the top line LW in Chicago or atleast battle with Saad.

04 Jul 2019 22:42:54
What's mind numbing is your opinion on spare parts. Hyman is a definite NHLer who does a hell of a lot for the Leafs. Liljegren is not a spare part, he is a very good defensive prospect. In fact I would argue Ritchie is the spare part more than anyone in this trade other than Timashov.

05 Jul 2019 05:54:58
If liljgren is an nhl player he would be. He might be someday but his stock has definitely lowered. Hyman would be 4th line cause saad is slated 3rd line. Never said Hyman isn't an nhler, just said spare part any team could replace easily and cheaper. I get you leafs fans think you ice an allstar team but come on, only reason hyman would be anywhere top line is cause Chicago doesn't have much depth there. And he be a fill in. I hope you don't mean he is a top line player. If hyman does so much for the leafs I'd expect more fans to keep him.

05 Jul 2019 05:57:38
I want blackhawks to keep anisimov, cause I'm a moron, that work? he's super valuable to them.

05 Jul 2019 06:01:38
Never said top liner did I? Hyman plays the entire ice, goes into corners, kills penalties and plays big minutes. What has Ritchie done exactly to prove anything? Drafted 5 years ago and still isn't a top 6 player on pretty much every team. Liljegren was drafted only two years ago and still has good upside. For you to think Anaheim is losing in that offer is totally mind numbing.

05 Jul 2019 06:05:10
And I don't know why your bringing Saad and the Hawks into a conversation that involved Toronto and Anaheim.

05 Jul 2019 07:46:28
Did you even have Lilegren in the trade?

05 Jul 2019 12:41:39
Hyman isn't a good trade chip?

02 Jul 2019 15:50:31
Anaheim Trades

Toronto Trades
Lindgren (AHL)

Anaheim in more a rebuild gets more depth while Toronto gets a million more in Cap Space a Young Power Forward in NRitchie and a Vet backup Goaltender for the upcoming Season with RYMiller.

Thoughts ?

02 Jul 2019 23:17:10
I love the power forward idea but please stop thinking Sparks and Gauthier are something any team wants.

03 Jul 2019 10:01:05
Yes @Leafs17 and nobody wanted Zaitsev and nobody would take Marleau, both traded the adding of Hyman is the sweetner in this Trade plus Lindgren isn't a bad prospect, we got Tyson Barrie at half his contract and Kerfoot for basically Kadri, so no there will always be a market for NHL Players and NHL Players that where on a top 5 team.
What you think won't happen probably will, Gauthier will be traded along with Sparks at some point which means an NHL Team wants them.

03 Jul 2019 14:34:50
How about this then pinball. Don’t put them in every proposal, every day.

04 Jul 2019 01:33:37
There’s not a lot of players left on Leafs to be trading. Who else is he going to include instead?

04 Jul 2019 12:22:13
Dubas mark my words @Leafs17 will be trading FGauthier and Sparks for sure the only other roster player I see being moved is Hyman, so when it comes to the Leafs NHL Roster those are the only players I see traded, Dubas isn't trading any of his young core, the Defense is basically fixed besides maybe bringing Phaneuf back as a 6th Defenceman, heck they might even sign Marleau at the minimum as Carolina bought him out not Toronto, so the only things left are a Top 2 Cap Friendly LWinger that's younger or sign Marleau, a 6th Defenceman like Phaneuf and a good Backup Goaltender that could be a starter if Andersen gets hurt.
The Leafs to me will be even better next season once they have filled those 3 holes.

24 Jun 2019 17:52:44
Devils: Michael McLeod, Sami Vatanen, 2021 2nd (if Vatanen is on team in April 2020 but does not re-sign)

Ducks: Cam Fowler

Gives Ducks a familiar face who is also a pending UFA and talented trade chip if they continue shipping players out in the rebuild. Also a RD to play with Lindholm. Gives Devils an LD for the top-4

Hall - Hischier - Palmieri
Bratt - Hughes - UFA (Donskoi/Connolly/Pavelski/Lee)
Zacha - Zajac - Coleman
Wood - UFA/Rooney - Hayden

Fowler - Subban
Smith - Severson
Greene - Butcher


24 Jun 2019 20:05:03
Sami Vatanen>Fowler.

21 Jun 2019 19:38:28
Colorado: 16th overall

Anaheim: Ryan Getzlaf And Ryan Kessler ( LTIR )

Colorado: The Avalanche have a top 5 pick so 16th is expendable. Getzlaf is still a 1C who is coming off a bad season because his team was trash. Colorado needs a 2C badly and they have tons of cap.

Anaheim: it's time for the ducks to move on from there aging core this sparks a full on retool/Rebuild. They already bought out Perry so this could go with it.

21 Jun 2019 19:55:12
Getzlaf has a NMC but might waive it for a chance at winning. He only has 2 years left - maybe retain some of his salary and he could go a lot of places.
Maybe max salary retention to go somewhere in win now mode that needs a 2C for some good futures and picks?

21 Jun 2019 20:03:25
Yeah, that’s a firm no from Colorado.

21 Jun 2019 20:15:00
They have cap space but only two players signed longer than two years. Good thought but I don’t think either team does it.

19 Jun 2019 12:31:56
M. Marner RW
N. Kadri C
N. Zaitsev D
G. Sparks G

S. Jones D

3rd 2019

3rd 2020
4th 2019

19 Jun 2019 12:56:07
Lol as much as the leafs organization probably dosent want to trade Marner if the leafs went out and said we’re not trading Marner Unless it is for an offer so ridiculous that it’d be impossible to refuse this would be a prime example.

19 Jun 2019 13:01:57
Marner for Jones and end it at that.

19 Jun 2019 14:14:58
All 3 trades are ridiculously in favor of the Leafs. Like, it's not even remotely close.

19 Jun 2019 16:29:06
I believe Toronto should trade Marner don't let the contract talks go on to far as they did with Nylander trade his right to the highest bidder lord know there will be many and use the cap space to fix the defense.

14 Jun 2019 23:28:51
Lucic + Russell + 38th


Perry + Silvferberg ?

Ducks save money gain good pick, Oilers improve F. Probably a no go for Ducks.
Its tough to balance contracts and value, tough fit. They have 0 4 yr contracts and just a couple 5+. Maybe Henrique would be more palatable to them but the money is tigh

15 Jun 2019 03:01:18
Lucic will retire as an oilers stop with the trades his career is over.

15 Jun 2019 07:24:51
He wasnt even that bad vbb. Definitely not worth his contract but still a good player to have in the Line Up. Really gritty power forward who can still produce. Perfect Bottom 6 player, but would make more sense on a 2M contract.

15 Jun 2019 09:17:29
anaheim will not give up silvferberg for that package. you might get perry if you add to that.

14 Jun 2019 21:30:08
Habs- Mete-juulsen- 1st pick 2019- alzner

14 Jun 2019 23:14:15

10 Jun 2019 12:49:31
Lucic and 8th overall for Perry and Kessler

Is a no from Anaheim that’s how bad Lucic is.

10 Jun 2019 13:45:01
Both Perry and kesler contract is worse.

10 Jun 2019 20:28:32
Kessler is on LTIR he doesn’t even have a contract anymore basically it’s irrelevant cap wise and it’s insured he’ll never play a game of hockey again same deal as Nathen Horton. If you had any idea about hockey and how the NHL works you’d know that. Corey Perry would be the best winger on Edmonton and he’s only 2 million more then Lucic. I’m fully confident half the people on this website are better then Lucic I know I am.

10 Jun 2019 22:34:31
I don't mind that trade as an ottawa fan money hands, if ottawa acquired a 2nd rounder for smith I would be quite surprised.

11 Jun 2019 02:15:44
Vb are u better than lucic? Haha how many points did you get in nhl this year.

11 Jun 2019 11:31:43
Well I can balance on skates Lucic can if you watch closely the camera dosent usually show it but you can see McDavid dragging Lucic to the front the net. McDavid to a few shots on net and they deflected in the net.
