Bruins signs John Carlson to a 7 year 9 million contract

Im not sure if Edm adds tbh. Drai is signed to a big contract for his production but he's still a hella of a center and should be on a team where he would be the number one. Its time for Bergeron to step down a notch and play second line. That way he will last longer and Bruins will be more stable down the middle. This trade makes both team better as Edm gets one of the best young RHD in the league

23 Apr 2018 02:20:58
goood godddddd. cmon.

23 Apr 2018 03:01:31
I wouldn't do This if I were Edmonton. and I don't think Boston wants to get rid of Macavoy.
Certain teams seem to have a history at a position. Habs with goalies. Edmonton and Pittsburgh with super star centers. And the Bruins. a superstar Dman. from Shore to Orr, Bourque to Chara. I'm not sold on Macavoy being in that mold yet. but he has the chance yo be the next Boston Stud Dman.
Plus as a Habs fan. I don't wanna see Drais all that much against them. lol.

23 Apr 2018 03:33:24
No from both teams honestly. Boston needs their young dmen more than a centerman and Edmonton needs drat.

23 Apr 2018 08:09:37
You think Boston can trade away an ELC contract for an $8.5M one and then sign a $9M contract?
Boston only has $100K in space right now with only Rick Nash coming off and NYR retained a ton of that so only like $3.9M for him coming off. Holden $1.6. Couple others under $1M but will have to replace with others under $1M. Where is all this cap space for Boston to add $17.5M for two guys? Seriously you just don't think before you post. You're always so far off its hilarious.

25 Feb 2018 15:59:59
With the return Rick Nash got, I had a crazy three team trade idea:

Toronto Trades:
(LW) James van Riemsdyk (50% Retained)
(LW) Yegor Korshkov
2018 2nd Round Pick

Florida Trades:
(C) Jared McCann
(RW) Jayce Hawryluk
(LW) Jamie McGinn
2018 1st Round Pick

New York Trades:
(D) Ryan McDonagh
(C) David Desharnais
2018 3rd Round Pick


Toronto Acquires:
(D) Ryan McDonagh

Florida Acquires:
(LW) James van Riemsdyk (50% Retained)
(C) David Desharnais
2018 3rd Round Pick

New York Acquires:
(LW) Yegor Korshkov
(C) Jared McCann
(RW) Jayce Hawyrluk
(LW) Jamie McGinn
2018 1st Round Pick
2018 2nd Round Pick

Basically, its like JVR goes to Florida for all that (similar return to what Nash got tbh, McCann Lindgren and Boston 1st, but JVR > Nash imo.

Then Toronto flips all of that, plus the 2nd and Korshkov to New York for McDonagh. And I think that's a very good haul for McDonagh tbh. Three prospects and two picks in the first two rounds.

Believe me. I never in WILDEST dreams thought this would be possible. Seriously, I thought JVR would be worth like a 1st+ a little bit at the deadline. But holy smokes, does the Nash deal change everything. We can agree that JVR is a better player than Nash, and therefore his return should be a bit better. Its just that Toronto needs none of the prospects, so they all get thrown onto NY for something they need - a dman.

Still tho, I think that Toronto wins this deal. Maybe some more from them? Idk.

25 Feb 2018 16:27:06
As a leaf fan i would love this. but they make out like bandits. Florida is the team losing this deal.

25 Feb 2018 16:52:36
Lol yeah. i'm Just tryna jump on the Nash overpay train. Lol.

25 Feb 2018 14:57:16
Confirmed --

Boston Acquires:
Rick Nash (50% Salary Retention)

New York Acquires:
Ryan Lindgren (Former 2nd Round Draft Pick)
Ryan Spooner
Matt Beleskey
2018 1st Round Pick
2019 7th Round Pick

Wow. that's an absolute steal for NY. Spooner is younger than Nash and is playing just as good imo. And a 1st, and a former 2nd? Good God. Imagine this getting proposed here, it would get rubbish down immediately, lol.

25 Feb 2018 15:26:40
And. Beleskey is at 50% Retention too. he's only 1.8 million with that retention, which is feasable. If NYR retained 50% on him and got him down to 900k, then he could actually be a piece that teams might be interested in for low picks.

25 Feb 2018 15:34:45
Yeah a guy here yesterday would have asked for OEL and domi for that package.

25 Feb 2018 16:29:02
Huge overpayment by Boston
They will regret this.

25 Feb 2018 17:43:15
I agree on overpayment. Nash was better player when he didn't whine. also seems to play well in contract year.

24 Feb 2018 21:19:00
- tater
- helm
- Ouellet
- DeKeyser

- spooner for tater
- McQuaid for Ouellet
- miller for DeKeyser
- Beleskey for cap dump / to help equal the contracts
- Nash for helm

24 Feb 2018 22:36:54
Spooner for Tatar lol.

25 Feb 2018 06:03:12
No spoons for taters lol.

22 Feb 2018 21:24:13
What should the Leafs do?

Everybody has a different opinion on this, here is mine.

Stand pat at the deadline.
I know people want to win now but remember that our core has plenty of years left so don't rush it. Teams will be asking for players such as:
Marner, Nylander, Kapanen, Dermott if the Leafs go after one of the high quality names put there and in my opinion that would waste what they have been trying to do(win for many years, not just one). Teams such as Boston and Tampa are already ahead of them this year, with Pittsburgh always playoff dangerous, so let them break the farm for a chance to win this year.
Bozak and JVR WILL be gone in the off season so get something for them. Add during the off season when more players will be available for trade or Free agency.


With an abundance of dman under contract for next year or RFA's, getting rid of another for a scoring winger for an extra push in the playoffs would help

Pilon.G, 4th-2018(WAS)

Capitals get a strong 3rd line center , Leafs get a center prospect which they don't have a lot of

Off Season
Komarov.L 2 yrs - $4 mil
Nylander.W 6 yrs - $39 mil
Carrick.C 2 yrs - $4.5 mil
Miller.C 3 yrs - $9 mil

This still leaves over $6 mil to play with.




22 Feb 2018 21:33:00
And. that's the problem with trading Bozak. I'd rather hold onto him for the playoff push, and maybe even resign him. He knows the system, and will be cheaper than his 4.2 million that he's making now. Plus, he's played with this team his entire career, if we make a decent offer, hell prob resign. So honestly, i'd rather keep Bozak and attempt to resign him.

With JVR, he isn't getting a dman who is an RFA (controllable asset) who has nearly the same amount of points as him. And Vegas wouldn't want to go for JVR, they have way too many forwards already.

22 Feb 2018 22:36:20
I agree with standing pat. I’m ok with a small add at center and even defense if it doesn’t cost too much. I would like it if they traded JVR if they get decent value. Trading JVR also allows Martin back in the line up, depending on what else they do. I know lots of you don’t like Martin but he is important come playoffs. I agree with TSS 100% with keeping Bozak. He is and has been very underrated for years. He plays PP, PK and is good on the draw. I don’t think they should pursue McDonagh. He is a very solid defenseman but I think the leafs would give up too much.

23 Feb 2018 01:36:27
Bozak will hit the open market. with the salary cap going up his salary will increase as well. It happens every time.

23 Feb 2018 16:31:15
I get that they want to keep Carrick but 2.5mil for. 7th D man when you have Lilj coming up. Also I would keep Bozak and JVR for a playoff push then if you lose them you lose them then you have more money in free agency.

20 Feb 2018 14:39:12
Oilers: Maroon
Bruins: Vatrano and a 3rd in 2018

20 Feb 2018 18:04:55
Goods for oilers. Player that can slot in middle 6 and a pick. Could hold out for more but I think maroon is deeper down a list of rental wingers where this might be the best they get.

17 Feb 2018 23:46:22
Oil: Nuge + Klefbom
Yotes: OEL

Oil: Maroon
Boston: Frederic

Oil: Letestu
Jets: 3rd.

18 Feb 2018 02:15:50
Id say a bit much from Edmonton on the first one, espec considering OEL wouldn't be on an extension.

Second one is a no from Boston, Frederic was a 1st before, don't think Boston gives him up this early.

Third is fine imo.

18 Feb 2018 05:07:05
A 4th or 5th, maybe even a 6th is more in line with Letestu's value.

17 Feb 2018 09:50:28
OTT: Smith
Bos: spooner

Ott: Ceci/hoffman/Anderson
WPG: Myers 1st 2018 perreault

Ott: pageau/paul

Van: vanek

17 Feb 2018 13:00:56
Horrible for jets. Don't need goaltending
Anderson has had a bad season.

2nd trade doesn't make sense for either team.

17 Feb 2018 21:53:00
I agree with tyhockey, you're offering a bottom pairing D-man, a winger the Jets don't need and a goalie the Jets don't need for two good players and a first. No chance.

16 Feb 2018 03:43:09
Darren dreger reported at the intermission that patrick maroon could be on the move before the deadline, apparently chiarelli has been fielding calls from winnipeg and boston for the big winger.

13 Feb 2018 16:46:48
Not mine, just saw these and thought I would see what you guys think.

E. Kane

1st 2019
2nd 2018
C J. Kyrou

R. Nash

1st 2018
D J. Zboril

D. Mike Green

1st 2018
RW J. Leivo
D A. Borgman

13 Feb 2018 18:39:49
Sorry to burst your bubble. Darmstrong Stated he is not trading his top Prospects (Thomas, Kyrou, Kostin, ) Top rookies (Dunn, Thompson), Top draft picks (2018 2nd, 2019 1st) or Fabbri for a rental type deal.

Also out of all the guys that have been rumored to the blues. I would think Kane would be the least palatable player with his locker room BS, On ice BS and Personal BS. Besides the fact that he is cold as poo right now.

13 Feb 2018 18:42:45
If toronto wants Mike for that price I am down with it. Good deep draft this year Hopefully Kenny H and his team don't f this draft up plenty of good potential players. Hell I would be will to dump Nyquist, tatar, and a few others for as many picks in the top 93 picks this year.

13 Feb 2018 18:44:59
I can actually see all of them happening. not sure Green is what the Leafs need? I think they need more of a tough hard noses Dman. they have skill in Gardiner and Reilly. obviously Green wouldn't hurt em, but If Leafs could find an Intimidating Dman. (big hitter, crease clearer. ) . I think would help em out.

13 Feb 2018 19:16:55
If I were blues I’d hang up.
Leafs don’t need offense from the point, they need a real defender.
If I were Bruins I would be curious at that. I know where zboril was drafted but don’t know a lot more, so clearly depends how they view him. However that pick should be very late and the big heavy game bruins play could be a great fit for Nash. I think the east is as open as it has been in a long time for these playoffs and with the way they have been playing i think the Bruins should look to capitalize. Rask is playing the best he has in years, have one of, if not the best line the league and a lot of youth outperforming expectations. As a leaf fan, I don’t wanna see them get better. But if I were Sweeney, I’d be tempted for sure.

14 Feb 2018 00:44:45
Redwing, you saying old poo? Cause poo is fairly hot when it first comes out, clearify please.

14 Feb 2018 05:01:15
I'm sorry let's say cold as 5 week b old poo in Alberta on Christmas day.

14 Feb 2018 16:27:53
lol @ Colt, never change bud.

14 Feb 2018 16:31:51
#1 Acquiring Kane is a mistake. Too much trouble I would
never give that for a rental that's been nothing but
trouble his whole career.

#2 Overpayment for a rental, but Nash might have a bidding
war that nets this type of return in the end. You Could
be onto something with a realistic trade there.

#3 Looks like a good trade value wise, but I don't think the
leafs are in a cap position to take on Green's Salary
unless they move out another salary in another trade.

12 Feb 2018 03:30:59
Oil: Maroon

Bruins: Bjork.

12 Feb 2018 05:52:13
Bruins say no, big time.

08 Feb 2018 04:47:52
Since every year Marc Bergevin always goes for other teams 4th liners at trade deadline..

Mtl 5th round pick for Boston Matt Beleskey

08 Feb 2018 18:16:34
This year mtl ate sellers and not buyers so this comment is idiotic.

07 Feb 2018 19:24:56
I don't know if Boston needs him but the rumours are going around so let's try some out

- McDonagh

- 2018 first round pick
- spooner (good player just needs a new home )
- McQuaid ( slight salary dump slight good player )
-debris or Bork ( I'd say Bork has more value and he's a great prospect and great nhl player )

07 Feb 2018 21:07:17

07 Feb 2018 23:05:52
If you want my opinion, Boston shouldn't do it.

08 Feb 2018 08:46:21
No team will pay such a ridiculous price for McDonagh. Rangers GM is high anyways, see his asking price for Rick Nash, lol.

06 Feb 2018 05:52:54
Leivo + Sosh + Liljegren + Gardiner + 1st

Kane + Bogosian

Let me explain why. Leafs need guys who will drop the gloves, as well as play hockey.
Saturday against Bos the Leafs played with fear. Dermott gets hit(knee on knee) and no one even went up to Backes.

Trade Bozak Moore and JVR

06 Feb 2018 06:09:47
Could see buffalo accepting it yup.

06 Feb 2018 07:32:52
yes from buffalo, hell no from toronto.

06 Feb 2018 11:05:29
I agree the leafs would get man handled by the Bruins with their current line up but I don’t want those guys. Bogasian hurts himself getting out of bed in the morning and Kane can go drag down another team. I’d rather Maroon. I really wish leaf fans would stop trading Liljegren. He is a big, right handed defenseman that most teams are looking for. Let’s see how he develops before trading him. The leafs are NOT winning the cup this year so let’s not trade away the future like they’ve done so many times before.

06 Feb 2018 16:07:44
Leafs17 what would do you think leafs would offer for Maroon, or a type of player comparable to Maroon?

06 Feb 2018 17:15:02
Until Liljegren proves himself. he is only a prospect at his time. and I never understand why right or left hand matters.

06 Feb 2018 19:08:26
If lillegren is out of the deal is it any closer? Leivo, shosh, gardiner and 1st for kane and bogosian? Still sounds pricey for the leafs, kane a UFA at seasons end and i'm not sold on bogosian. whose he replacing, polak? Seems silly to trade all that just to improve the 6th defenceman and a rental.

06 Feb 2018 20:15:26
Maybe Ristolainen instead of Bogosian.

06 Feb 2018 21:36:57
Yes Balsam he is only a prospect but like I said, the leafs are NOT winning the cup this year. Why trade away these kids for two guys that will not make them contenders? I did not say until Liljegren proves himself. I said let’s see how he develops, big difference. I could see a small trade because Toronto has too many forwards and they could use some defensive depth. I’m not even going to get into why right or left matters.
I suggested Kapanen for Maroon a few weeks ago McJ and I believe it was mixed feelings on that. Maybe Soshnikov or Leivo plus a 2nd? I’m not sure.

06 Feb 2018 23:39:42
Both of those offers I think Edmonton could gladly accept imo, and Toronto or any team in this league could use a maroon type player just sucks oilers can’t keep him.

07 Feb 2018 21:29:23
I agree 100% with mcjesus, maroon is too slow. Unless he comes with mcdavid, why would you want him?

29 Jan 2018 20:41:08
Boston potentially looking to add a RW before the deadline

Bruins: 2nd.
Nucks: Vanek

Vanek is playing quite well for Vancouver this year and he’s certainly always deadline trade bait.

29 Jan 2018 21:02:10
Makes sense. I wouldn't mind seeing them do that because it’s almost certain leafs are going to match up with them in the first round. Vanek is not someone I see making them a ton better lol.

29 Jan 2018 21:47:36
Jim. it all depends on what Vanek shows up. some games, he is the most dominant guy out there. almost looking like he's toying with his competition. then others. May as well be in the AHL. I don't know If I have seen a player who can be so . Moody? Maybe that's the word.
Personally, I'd like to see him on Pens. I've been saying it awhile. but him and Crosby could be lethal.

29 Jan 2018 22:28:40
Yeah. He’s kinda like kovalev used to be. Best player on the ice and then non existent. I just don’t see him having the work ethic or grind to be successful on the Bruins. They play simple style, but you have to be willing to work your ass off. Just don’t see him doing that consistently for 20-25 regular season games and what they hope is a long playoff run.

29 Jan 2018 22:46:47
Ya . Bruins are, and always have been a hard working, grinding team. Can't see him as a fit there. and I like your Kovalev comparison.

28 Jan 2018 21:05:27
Boston/San Jose

Matt Beleskey and Paul Postma for Paul Martin.

Almost same cap hit.

Why for the bruins, it brings help for the playoff push and easier to buyout in july...

Why for the Sharks, to replace the injured players till end of the year and next year. Maybe returning to the western conference where he had success would bring him back to shape..

Let me know if its realistic value wise. thanks.

25 Jan 2018 21:46:04
Saw this on several sources, Tampa Bay got calls on Slater Koekkoek from many teams. They said Ottawa and Boston were the most interested. I still think he can turn into a solid 2way top4 D (puts up solid numbers, 25GP,8P while just playing 11 min a night) , but not on the Lightning because they already have Hedman and Sergachev as their LHD. I think the Lightning would want a young dman back preferably a RH one. When Hedman is healthy again i think he could be available. So i'm just trying to predict 2 possible deals for him:

OTT: Koekkoek
TBL: Ceci

BOS: Koekkoek
TBL: Zboril

Idk, Tampa adds a little on both probaly but as a base maybe. I know Zboril is LH but didn't find any RHD on Boston that would fit into a deal like this. Are these maybe close or could you see another team being interested in Koekkoek?

25 Jan 2018 22:15:20
Lol Koekkoek will be a depth defense
He's worth as best as a guy like Kapanen.

26 Jan 2018 05:18:43
I don't think Koekkoek is going to be a depth guy. I think he will be/ already is a 3rd pair guy that could step into top 4 if needed due to injury. Obviously his trade value is low right now since Cooper has an aversion to playing him. He was good in minors last year and shown glimpses this year. doesn't get either of those guys though they won't get his true value in a trade.

24 Jan 2018 11:13:08
Edmonton: Carlo
Boston: Yamamoto

Edmonton gets a right shooting defenceman and Boston gets a high upside 2nd line LW behind Marchand.

Does it fit needs and, if so, who adds?

24 Jan 2018 12:19:24
So a young proven defensemen for a forward prospect that is overated by edmonton fans. Ya sounds fair. lol.

24 Jan 2018 13:54:24
I say oilers add. Yamamoto looks like he could be pretty good but a big RHD that has 130 nhl games at 21 has got to get a better return. Especially when they wouldn’t include him in Duchene or landeskog talks. They won’t now flip him for that.

24 Jan 2018 17:58:40
No from Boston they need their dmen.

23 Jan 2018 19:48:11


23 Jan 2018 20:41:55
Now this has my attention, but I believe Boston’s d core is not that great and they should keep McAvoy for sure.

23 Jan 2018 21:08:34
Don't think Boston does that because they have good centre depth. And their pretty weak on the blueline.

14 Feb 2018 14:42:22
Are you kidding McAvoy for that bum. lmao.

20 Jan 2018 23:34:33
Ott: hoffman
Bos: zboril, 1st round pick, heinen

20 Jan 2018 23:42:52
too much for Hoffman.

20 Jan 2018 23:46:22
Lol wtf how is that too much?

21 Jan 2018 01:19:02
Fair deal, but why would ottawa trade hoffman. Making trades just to make trades is stupid. But the value is there in this trade

21 Jan 2018 02:57:08
Boston not taking down their future.

21 Jan 2018 16:30:09
@Mcjesus how is that NOT too much? The Hoffman ones always make me wonder with you lol I said Yamamoto (a talented winger selected 22nd last draft) straight up for Hoffman and you say it’s too much from oilers. But bruins sending a 22 year old winger with 10 goals and 31 pts in his first 40 nhl games, a 20 year old Dman picked 13th overall 2 drafts ago and a future first isn’t enough?!?! I agree with so much that you say on here, but this one always throws me for a loop.

21 Jan 2018 17:12:13
2 1sts for Hoffman? I agree to much. I’m not sure who Hinen is either.

21 Jan 2018 17:13:32
Well I personally don't value Hoffman as much as people on this site tbh. The guy only started to play good after he was 25 and he's meh. Has a good chemistry with the guys he okay with but I do not think he's worth a 20 year old blue chip D prospect and a first. One or the other with small add.

21 Jan 2018 18:15:04
Danton Heinen is a center/ wing that is on pace for a 62 pts season right now at 22 years old. If he was anyone else’s young player they would be high on him for sure.

21 Jan 2018 19:01:19
Hello Mcjesus. lol.

21 Jan 2018 20:25:13
I had no clue who heinen was but after searching him up this trade is even worst. Wow that guy is good. 22 year old kid drafted in y round and has 31 points already this year? . Not on past for 62 tho more 57 but still not bad.

22 Jan 2018 04:16:51
Well he played 41 games of an 82 game season, and has 31 points. Don’t know how that’s a 57 pt pace and not 62 lol but sure, you’re right Bucky.
