Oilers: Lucic + Benning

Boston: Backes

Read in article.

Lucic thrived in Boston as we all know and there’s been reports of Boston wanting more toughness and grit (I thought they were fine but guess not) . Lucic I think would easily waive to go to Boston and it could honestly be good for him.

Backes was one of Hitch’s fav players while he was in St. Louis (not to mention the captain) and was very trusted by hitch, he could replace looch on the ideinty line. Lol

Both these players signed contracts and are not living up to the price tag, being moved I think lessen the pressure off both of them.

Issue here is Lucic has 2 years extra on his contract.

Anyways this is what I read and there is believed to be some steam since Boston was at the oilers last home game.

11 Dec 2018 17:51:11
Boston GM Sweeney was in Edm for the Sunday night game. The article suggests two pkayers stick out that they could maybe discuss with each other. Lucic who played in Boston and Backes who could use a change possibly. Benning was mentioned because he was drafted by Boston and played Uni or collage there or close to there.
Just someone speculating.

11 Dec 2018 20:11:19
Bruins will not trade for Lucic, contract is 2 more years than Backes' and why would they trade for Benning to be their 8th D?

11 Dec 2018 22:08:15
Ask the guy who wrote the article suggesting such madness. Wasn't any of us. He's just speculating rumors.

11 Dec 2018 23:14:47
Benning isn’t much value if they value Backes contract a lot more than Lucic’s. Also I’m pretty sure they didn’t sign Benning after he was done college. But if there WANTING to get Lucic then maybe it could happen.

12 Dec 2018 02:07:46
Bigger trade maybe? Oilers want krug and Boston need help from forward

Edmonton : Lucic, nugent-Hopkins, benning

Boston : backes and krug?

12 Dec 2018 10:37:23
Another article was stating potentially Boston was watching spooner as well? Most likely not but he is for sure on the block I’d imagine.

12 Dec 2018 20:43:36
If Lucic has any chance of living up to that contract it will be in Boston where they still play the style of play he is best suited for. Hitch has the right idea I think playing him on a thumper line. but that's a hefty price tag for a guy playing 3rd/ 4th line minutes.

11 Dec 2018 03:24:57
Totally spit-balling here

STL is struggling mightily, crazy with the off-season they had and they still suck

BOS needs a top 6 winger and I've heard Tarasenko's name in a couple rumors.

BOS gets: Tarasenko (20% retained)- makes it 6 mill a year
2019 3rd rounder

STL gets:
Krug- incredibly gifted OFD
Ryan Donato- Similar game to Tarasenko, high end prospect, looks really solid in past few games
2019 1st rounder

STL get pieces back that can still help them win now, with the right linemates, maybe Oreilly and Schwartz, Donato can really develop into a stud, Krug is one of the more underrated OFD in the league, guarantee for 60 points and a great PP QB. Cap is added so Bruins have a little more wiggle room for young player.

Perfect buy low value on senko although Bruins are still giving up a lot

11 Dec 2018 03:43:47
i would do this from a st louis point of view. the main thing i think from boston, do they have the defensive depth to be able to give up a piece like krug?

11 Dec 2018 03:46:06
Blues laugh at you then just out of spite offer jaybo and steen for macavoy.

11 Dec 2018 04:00:58
@pkane yea they do, when healthy they have 7 really solid D, with their injuries a lot of guys from the AHL came up and played really well, the only thing is replacing a PP QB like Krug, I think McAvoy can eventually but not yet, just a fun trade idea tho.

11 Dec 2018 04:03:45
@redwing what do you think the Blues could get for senko? i get that he's a stud but idk how much more teams would be willing to give them.

11 Dec 2018 05:08:13
I mean the deal isn't horrible but I found the part about krug being guarenteed to score 60 points funny considering he never has.

11 Dec 2018 05:58:16
Teresenko will not be retained at all for this to work.

11 Dec 2018 05:58:30
And I wouldn’t even take that package.

11 Dec 2018 06:23:10
Did it ever occur not to trade your 40 goal scoring player. It's a joke.

11 Dec 2018 12:29:24
Krug And Saint Louis are not a fit IMO.

11 Dec 2018 20:14:42
Senko has scored 40 goals once and that was 3 years ago, you're overvaluing him @redwing.

12 Dec 2018 12:41:10
37, 40 39 33

You don't trade players like that for scraps.

12 Dec 2018 13:16:33
When you score 33 goals 70 pts on a bad year that means your a freaking great player. Not over rated.

29 Nov 2018 21:11:41
Chicago: Keith +2nd
toronto: Gardiner, Kapenen, 3rd

Chicago: Anisimov
NJD: 3rd, 5th

Chicago: Crawford+ 3rd
Philly: Hart +2nd

Chicago: Seabrook (50% Retained)
Boston: Vladar + 2nd.

29 Nov 2018 23:23:25
Why is Philly giving the better pick with Hart?!

30 Nov 2018 00:04:04
Toronto shouldn't take Keith contract, and Kapanen is at an all time high in value.

New Jersey may do that, but they have decently good centre depth (Hischier/ Zajac/ McLeod/ Zacha/ / Boyle) and ZAjac is a huge contract altogether, probably don't want Anisimov as well.

Philly is bankinh on Hart, i don't think they take a gamble on an older goalie for him.

And idk about the last one. Seabrook at 50 is decent imo.

30 Nov 2018 00:48:29
Interesting you bringing up Keith what with the discussion about Pietrangelo below. Less than 2 years ago Keith came 4th in Norris trophy voting. Now nobody believes he is anywhere near top 50 even and that once sweet contract of his is a boat anchor. It just shows how fast a player can fall down the rankings and deteriorate in performance. Another great example is Karlsson. Once considered the best defenseman in the world not long ago, Karlsson should not be taken seriously as a top 10 defender in the NHL anymore.

I guess age eventually captures up with everyone.

21 Nov 2018 09:58:14
Boston has injury trouble on defensemen and could use a veteran to help stabilize and provide some depth when regulars return.

Canucks- Del Sotto
Bruins 4th round pick.

21 Nov 2018 16:33:58
I think Canucks would want more and I don’t know how del zotto would fit in in Boston. They have a certain identity and although the league is tamer than it used to be, they still expect their players to play a certain way. Not sure of the fit.

19 Nov 2018 21:39:19
Boston:3rd 2018


Boston takes a flyer on a bottom pairing defensemen at best but at that price it's not a big risk

20 Nov 2018 02:12:58
Bruins have a ton of depth on D, no need.

22 Nov 2018 15:40:51
Despite what everyone thinks of Ceci myself included he's still worth more than a 3rd rounder.

15 Nov 2018 20:50:59
Leafs gives:
- tim linigrin ( I spelled that wrong )

Bruins gives:
- Krug
- Carlo
-2nd (first if bruins make playoffs)

15 Nov 2018 23:17:54
You left out Nylander? 😜😜.

15 Nov 2018 23:35:48
Bruins wouldn’t give us Carlo for liljegren. 2 top 4 Dmen and a pick for one good prospect just isn’t in the realm of possibility.

15 Nov 2018 23:43:29
I think you forgot to add Nylander+.

16 Nov 2018 00:27:56
I didn’t even think that’s what he meant lol makes more sense that way. I was looking at it like he thought the world of liljegren.

16 Nov 2018 01:29:11
Someone must be missing from Toronto?
If it is Nylander, I'd say Bruins still don't do this.
Boston has always been a team with a strong history of good D. from Shore. to Orr. Bourque, Chara. and to decimate their D core by taking arguably their top 2 D meh away. just won't happen.
Boston and Leafs also have built ( rekindled) a rivalry over the past few seasons. don't think either team has an interest in helping each other.

16 Nov 2018 01:48:48
I think you’ve been tasting the 🌈 too often.

16 Nov 2018 16:46:32
Nylander AND Timothy Liligren>>> Krug And Carlo.

16 Nov 2018 20:49:24
The gap between Nylander and Krug is much, Much higher then Liligren and Carlo.

17 Nov 2018 06:34:41
I was going tompost a comment until I noticed Sosa already said what I was going to say. I got to this party too late obviously.

I will say this though, since no one else has yet: trading with a division rival who can come back and haunt you in the first round is a bad idea. I don’t mind trades with bottom feeding teams that aren’t going to make playoffs or contend for a few years, but a team like Boston, who just knocked us out of playoffs last season, is a big no in my books. Would hate to have Nylander come back against us post-season.

Just my two cents.

15 Nov 2018 08:34:05
Bruins have been playing pretty well, I think with a healthy D core and an add of a top 6 forward, they could really end up being cup contenders

Bos: Stone
Ott: Heinen + conditional 3rd (changes to first if stone resigns or Bos wins cup)

Ott get a really good TWF, played really well in limited ice time on the third line with more defensive players last year.

Stone would be a perfect Bruins player, big body winger

Not really sure about the return for this, I look at a guy like Evander Kane as a similar player and he only got a 1st last year because he resigned (wouldve been a 2nd if he didnt) i'd say Heinen is worth more than a 1st, a proven young player I'll take any day over a late 1st

Bruins lines


15 Nov 2018 10:49:33
Stone would be a way pricier rental. You need to give a first for sure. Player. + depending on said player.

19 Nov 2018 05:42:20
LMFAO was this a serious post or just for a laugh?

02 Nov 2018 01:31:13
Tor nylander gardier

Boston debrusk carlo 2rd pick

Tor 1 rd pick


Debrusk mathews kapanen
Marlue tavars marner
Hyman kadri brown

Reilly carlo
Edler nikta z
Dermont hainsey

02 Nov 2018 02:57:05
Not getting Carlo

02 Nov 2018 03:50:59
Boston can’t afford to make this trade anyway, so no point even discussing the merits of the players involved. We would have to take back another $6M more in salary over and above DeBrusk and Carlo somehow. Finances alone prevents this trade from happening.

02 Nov 2018 21:17:20
Debrusk is a fan favourite in Boston I don’t think they’d want to trade him.

03 Nov 2018 03:49:09
Where is Edler coming from?

01 Nov 2018 05:05:17
Tor sparks. Linjgren 2 3 rd picks

Stl Pietrangelo

Tor nylander

Boston DeBrusk

01 Nov 2018 10:41:39
Even if he's older then the two other wingers, Pietrangelo is a number 1 RHD on a good contract. Even if Derbrusk and Nylander where on the same team I'm pretty sure St Louis wouldn't trade Pietro for those two combine.

01 Nov 2018 12:25:31
STL laughs.

01 Nov 2018 13:22:34
Leafs laugh. Liljegren is going to be on our 1RHD for the next decade. He will be a lot cheaper than Pietrangelo, who we absoluteky cannot afford to re-sign after next year.

10 years Liljegren >>> 2 years Pietrangelo.

Trading Liljegren for two years of Pietrangelo is poor asset management. Simple as that.

01 Nov 2018 13:38:06
No from STL.

01 Nov 2018 13:58:19
That's pretty high hopes for the guy. Didn't realize he was projected like that.
Guess we just wait and see now if he's your #1 RHD for the next ten years.
And I'm a fan of Timothy's, thought he was a good pick
Up for the Leafs.

01 Nov 2018 15:42:42
Wow didn't realize that Liljgren is a stud. Good luck with that, Also STL laughs you in the face.

01 Nov 2018 15:56:48
Brutal for St. Louis. First of all they aren’t getting the value. Secondly they just signed bozak, traded futures and decent current roster players for O’Reilly. They made those moves to compete now. Even for a better package, trading their best dman and arguable best player (with Tarasenko) makes zero sense.

01 Nov 2018 15:57:00
Side note: if dubas could make that trade with St. Louis, he would be an instant legend and I would say leafs are then cup favourites. Adding a RH Norris caliber Dman without losing a piece from your roster besides a back up goalie would do that. It will also never happen lol.

01 Nov 2018 16:12:44
@yupp and @redwing

NHL. com has him ranked 39th overall and among top 5 RHD

Sportingnews has him ranked 41st overall and 7th RHD prospect overall.

Lastwordonhockey has him ranked 26th overall and 5th RHD overall

I think that qualifies him as one of the highest ranked prospects in the world.

Trading 10+ years of our future 1RHD away for a 2 year rental of Pietrangelo, who we definitely cannot afford to re-sign is extremely poor asset management.

01 Nov 2018 16:46:16
The following players were ranked extremely high by writters and analyst and never amounted to be a top 30 player in thier position Also Schmaltz, Dunn, Parayko have outperformed him in AHL. I doubt he ever becomes better than parayko let alone top 5 defenseman in the league.

Tyler Meyers
Nail Yakapov
Darnell Nurse
dion Phaneuf
Magnus Paravvii (i know i spelt it wrong)

There are tons more, i just don't care to do the research. But all these players i mentioned were suppose to be the next great player and sadly only ekblad has hit top pair status but has never hit his ceiling.

01 Nov 2018 16:53:58
HELL NO from T. O.

01 Nov 2018 17:03:25
Lol maple leaf fans are like Liljegren is the next bobby or trade him for mcdavid and put mcdavid on rhd lmao.

01 Nov 2018 17:19:31

I don’t believe I ever said he was going to be better than Parayko or top 5 in the league. You are putting words into my mouth. What I said was he is going to be our 1RHD and will be on the team a lot longer, and cost a lot less, than Pietrangelo. He is one of the youngest players in AHL, and is performing extremely well. There is absolutely no way Leafs would make this deal. Absolutely twrrible asset management.

01 Nov 2018 18:34:39
Terrible assets management? Are you kidding me😂

You’re literally giving up a guy who isn’t even playing on your team for a legit #1 defenseman.

01 Nov 2018 19:08:40
Crazy. What's wrong with Ekblad, Meyers, Nurse, Dion?
They seem to have turned out alright and some still haven't reached their potential.
I think the over hype on Timothy is crazy here. Again, I'm a fan of the guy and have him projected as hopefully becoming a solid top 4 guy for you, in a year or two still, but no means a #1 elite stud like you're making it out. He was 17th overall. Lots of guys drafted better than 17 haven't even turned out to be an elite D man.
I guess we will wait and see if Timothy turns out to be that stud you think. Would be great for the team tho.

01 Nov 2018 23:35:25
I'm just saying everyone thought they were the next top 5 Dman. They were over hyped. this seems to be more of the same.

But this never happens because the blues say hells to the no.

02 Nov 2018 01:49:25
Lol classic Colt.

02 Nov 2018 12:13:20
@yupp, what’s wrong with Ekblad? His names not Colton parayko!

02 Nov 2018 13:33:17
I’ve watched lots of liljegren with the Marlies. I think he has a chance to be a good top 4 Dman. I think elite is a stretch for sure and there’s still a decent chance he never makes a big impact at all. He’s such a curious prospect. Went from possible top 5 pick, to falling off the radar, to a mid first and then played top 4 min all season as the youngest player in the AHL, but then was very sheltered and hardly played in the Calder cup finals. Any close game he barley touched the ice in the 3rd period. Still was only 19 and that’s expected in a Dman, but I don’t have a solid read on this guy at all.

02 Nov 2018 15:16:27
Ekblad minus injuries just hasn't been that elite top norris dman that everyone hyped him to be. There is nothing wrong with him at all. I am just trying to compare the hype that TL gets Compared to What Ek got. It is my belief that TL is being over Hyped.

You say classic colt. So making a comparative statment that some can't comprehend then I have to re-explain it is classic?

02 Nov 2018 15:18:53
Actually Klim Kostin was the youngest AHL player last year. TL is 5 days older lol. Not by much but yes they are both very young. Did he not have a contract with the Seliga or something.

28 Oct 2018 15:49:11
Toronto Trades: Josh Leivo (RW - 650K x 1 Year) + 2020 3rd Round Draft Selection
Edmonton Trades: Zach Kassian (RW - 2.0 Million x 2 Years [Salary Retention: 50%]) + 2019 5th Round Draft Selection.

Simple. Edmonton seemingly doesn't want Kassian, and Toronto could use some grit in our bottom six. Yes, we just had Martin, but the only reason we traded him is because he was being paid 2.5 million. If he was at 1.0, we would've kept him 100%. Kassian and 1.0 could be solid as a guy to play against teams like Boston, Philadelphia, etc. On the flip, Edmonton doesn't want Kassian, as they've allowed him to look for a trade, they acquire a replacement in Leivo, and move their pick up two rounds.

Leafs Lineup (Healthy + if Nylander signs) :

Kapanen - Matthews - Nylander
Hyman - Tavares - Marner
Marleau - Kadri - Brown
Johnsson - Lindholm - Kassian.

28 Oct 2018 17:30:44
Would enjoy this trade.

28 Oct 2018 17:39:21
I just read about Kassian. What’s going on? I thought Kassian, Maroon, Gryba, all these guys absolutely loved Edmonton?

28 Oct 2018 17:41:34
It's not that Edm doesn't want him, It's that he's a 4th liner making $1.9M and others making a lot less are more than capable of doing that job now. Chiasson a PTO for $650K, Jujhar, Drake, all making less have passed him I think.
There's just a mutual agreement to let him and his agent pursue a trade for a fresh start. Lots of teams could use what he brings. Him and Maroon were heart and soul guys in the Edm locker room, but it might be time for a fresh start. I used to hate the guy, and since he cleaned up his off ice BS he's become a great character team guy. I think he could be a good fit in TO maybe, protect some of that offensive talent there, would be a fun guy to have in that locker room.

28 Oct 2018 17:42:56
Oh. Didn't see the retention. Lol. That goes against why I believe they are willing to trade him. I don't think they would consider retaining %50. He still has this and next year on his $1.9M deal.
I would trade him for Leivo and a 3rd, sure. But not retain.

28 Oct 2018 17:43:38
Oh, yes I think that is a fair deal. I’d love a little grit in the line up.

28 Oct 2018 18:02:00
Kassian is exactly what the Leafs need. as a Habs fan. I would absolutely hate this. so would all the other teams in the division. He is actually capable of playing decent hockey when he wants to and can be a straight up menace. other times, sometimes a liability. however, when it comes to the grind em out, tougher playoff style hockey, this is a guy who can make a difference.
Really wish we never traded him for Ben Scrivens. that sucked.

28 Oct 2018 19:32:19
And Kassian is like a 13th forward now making $1.9M for this and next season. He just doesn't play anymore like he did two years ago when he could change a game.
Chaisson $650K PTO, Jujhar, Drake and even now Cooper Marody who played well in his few games he was called up for can do the same and Kassian now for less.
Cooper Marody has impressed. He was a collage stand out drafted by Philly, Oilers used the 3rd round draft pick they got for Maroon to acquire his rights, then signed him to an ELC. He's already 21 too. Had a solid pre season and a good start in Bakersfield. Players like that are making an overpaid Kassian now expendable. But he can still ring value to a team who wants the grit and a fresh start would be good for him. Love the guy.

28 Oct 2018 20:15:49
Sosa we traded him cause we didn't need another party animal in the room. Lol. He was in a alcohol / drug / party vehicular accident before he even played a game here.

28 Oct 2018 20:41:33
I know Habby. I just wish we woulda gave him a chance after he cleaned up. I have always like Kassian and those type of players. like when we had Prust. whom we traded for Kassian. guess Deslauriers is that guy now. I like him, would prefer Kassian.

28 Oct 2018 21:22:36
Leivo sucks. But Kassian sucks more, and costs twice as much.

According to capfriendly, Edmonton has $0 in cap space left. I don’t think they will be retaining any salary.

28 Oct 2018 23:51:52
He looked great on the ice in the playoffs a cpl years ago but once a guy has off ice issues, it’s really hard to gain the trust back I think. If there were anyway to guarantee he would keep his nose clean, I’d be interested. Unfortunately there just isn’t. Fourth line character guys, with size, are available all the time. I would look for one without drug and alcohol problems and without assault arrests off the ice. Just wouldn’t want to risk anything with the young core in the room for a 4th liner. Taking those risks for a top 6 forward like Evander Kane is hard enough. But not for a depth guy.

29 Oct 2018 00:51:44
Jim, you do know Kassian has kept clean for a few years now, right? It was very well watched over by the Oilers the first year he was there and they wouldn't have given him a 3 year extension if he didn't smarten up. It was actually very well looked after and a known thing. He has cleaned up off the ice, for a few years now. Lol.

29 Oct 2018 09:17:37
Those are actually my favourite type of players Sosa but the need for those types are almost non existent now (too bad) . I'd rather deslauriers at 1mil less though.

29 Oct 2018 09:18:39
Yeah, that’s fine. I said if there was a way to GUARANTEE it, and there isn’t. I have people in my life who have battled drug and alcohol addictions. It’s a battle everyday and it doesn’t go away. So it’s always there. Some people can’t go a day without going back.

Some people have it creep back after 3,4,5 years. It’s never cured, it’s controlled. I don’t think it’s worth the risk for a 4th liner who can’t crack the oilers forward group. Risk/ reward is not in the leafs favour on it. I don’t personally dislike the guy for having issues, but as a business decision, I don’t think it makes sense. If he’s a model citizen now and a good enough player, keep him lol.

29 Oct 2018 09:22:46
You do know why they give out 5 year and 10 year sobriety pins and people are proud of achieving those milestones right? It’s not because their disease is cured after a team issued 30 day rehab program and a cpl seasons not getting in trouble. Ppl battle their whole lives to stay clean, and guess what, he’s a person. I have to remind you of that because you think it’s funny when players get hurt, so you must not realize they’re actually people when the jersey comes off, but they are. Not just pawns in your game.

29 Oct 2018 16:47:13
I agree with your assessment of clean and sober Jim, and how addicts are never cured, and for most it is a daily struggle. however, I also believe giving on giving those people a chance. Like you, I have known many to battle the disease, lost a few along the way. and your right, it is a business. I still believe that Kassian is a player your team could use. I don't think any team would make a trade for him without doing their homework. it may be risk like you say for a 4th liner, but I think it could be a great reward for your team. The intangibles this guy could bring to that club, ya just can't measure through stats.

29 Oct 2018 18:46:09
I don’t exactly know the Kassian story but is he worse than anyone else in the league or did he just get caught?

29 Oct 2018 19:05:43
Not sure Ebs. But I know there was vehicle accident involved in Montreal. who knows the real story beyond that. I'm sure lots of guys party alot. 20 somethings with millions., and hot girls all over ya. be pretty hard not to lol.
Some can handle it. some cant. dunno if it was mainly booze. or booger sugar. or whatever. But I beleive he did/ does have a substance abuse issue . more than jus a recreational line or weekend runaway with the boyz.

30 Oct 2018 11:41:42
@sosa, I agree his stats aren’t what he brings which is why I never mentioned any point numbers or any of that. I like his physical play, i even said I was impressed with his playoff a cpl seasons ago. But for me, it makes no sense to trade a bottom 6 winger for an older bottom 6 winger that makes 3 times as much (1.5x as much with retention) and has that history and we are adding a 3rd round pick?

I hope the Guy never has another issue, from a personal stand point I wish him the best, but from a business standpoint I find it a risk when considering what you’re paying. We have so many young impressionable players with a ton of potential and I would do everything possible to keep them on a straight and narrow path.

Risking anything to add a fourth liner I find an unnecessary gamble. Evander Kane is 5 times the player and was added to an extremely veteran group in San Jose. That’s worth the risk. This just isn’t.

30 Oct 2018 11:45:00
Yeah habs brass put him in the substance abuse program after that. Not 100% sure exactly what for. heard coke was one thing. Also heard he was not driving his truck when the accident happened cause he was too zonked.

30 Oct 2018 11:46:40
But yeah I'm sure there are people just as bad that we don't even know about.

30 Oct 2018 12:38:13
@habby, yeah a woman was driving the truck when it crashed. She was charged for it.

30 Oct 2018 16:22:32
Yeah I remember now she is the biggest puck bunny in Quebec.

I get it Jim, the bottom 6 younger g for a bottom 6 older. Adding the 3rd isn't needed . Just the difference in gmaes styles is what I'd look at. Leivo isn't needed, however Kassian is. Well maybe. sometimes players get traded and flourish. or. look absolutely lost. So who knows. but someone on the lines of a Kassian type is what Leafs could use.

30 Oct 2018 23:09:48
I’m with ya Sosa. If there was a way to add that TYPE of player, without the off ice history for a reasonable price, I’d be all for it. Just for me, character guys with size to play 6-8 min a night should come with zero BS connected to them because half the league will be shopping those guys by Christmas. Leafs have added the Winniks and Boyle’s and stuff to play bottom 6 and add size and experience over the last few years and their character has never been a question.

Now that WPG signed Wheeler and will have to sign Laine and Connor to big contracts next year they'll need to shed some cap space. Probably either Little, Perrault or both most likely after this season. The players still have value so here's some proposals:

WPG: Little
MON: Juulsen


WPG: Perrault
BOS: 2nd Round Pick 2019

Thoughts? Or comment some suggestions

05 Sep 2018 04:39:24
No on the first one, yes on the 2nd.

05 Sep 2018 05:57:29
Little would be Montreal’s best centre, but by default. Not nearly good enough to change anything there and therefore they should stick to a plan and keep the younger, cheap asset with good potential.

Don’t know if Boston needs Perrault. They have their veteran forwards under contract (Bergeron, Marchand, Pastrnak, krejci, backes) and had a good crop of youth (deBrusk, Henien, Donato etc) take steps last year that should fill up most of the top 9. But the price is good. Someone would add him for a 2nd rounder.

05 Sep 2018 15:21:15
The Jets would jump on these deals if Roslovic has chemistry centering Laine and Ehlers and one of Petan, Dano, Lemieux or Appleton are ready to replace Perreault in the bottom 6. The Jets save $ and the Habs get a #1 center, for them, as he would be a #3 with the Jets. I could see Perreault being traded to Columbus or Vegas as they both would want him more than Boston.

05 Sep 2018 16:49:35
Yes, both of these would be good deals for the Jets. But, Montreal needs to stick with going young. Little won't lift them to a playoff spot, so they need to stay the course.

07 Sep 2018 01:46:14
I think I'd rather go with daneult as a number 1 center then trade assets for bryan little.

01 Aug 2018 17:25:58
Canucks trade: tanev, gadjovich, 4th round pick 2019

Bruins trade: Carlo, McQuaid, 2nd round pick 2019

What do you fellas think about this one? And what pieces could be added to make it fair? Canucks get another young D

01 Aug 2018 17:47:18
I don't think the bruins would be willing to part with Carlo for that. Canucks don't have the pieces to get him.

01 Aug 2018 17:48:26
Lmaooo. Boston tells you not to call ever again.

01 Aug 2018 23:32:19
No team wants tanev! Stop adding him to rumors.

02 Aug 2018 14:40:00
Leafs would take Tanev.

02 Aug 2018 15:22:54
Yes they would vbbb but they wouldn't give up anything in return right?

02 Aug 2018 16:30:26
So an oilers fan calls a Canucks player garbage, a leaf fan says they would take him, and you still find a way to make that into a ‘leafs biased’ comment lol.

02 Aug 2018 23:59:59
I can just imagine the trade proposals now lol.

03 Aug 2018 00:25:50
I’d give up a 1st and a prospect but he’s one of the most frequently injured players + he dosent exactly light it up offensively so I wouldn’t give more then that.

03 Aug 2018 13:07:40
That’s not enough vbb! Get real, stop this leaf bias! You know it would take 3 leaf 1sts because they’re not actually worth as much as you think they are. Also liljegren isn’t a prospect, only you and I think that. To be called a prospect, there has to be a chance they will make the NHL. Prospects are guys like zach Fucale.

07 Jul 2018 14:57:23
Josh Leivo and a 2020 2nd Round Draft Selection to the Boston Bruins in exchange for Adam McQuaid and a 2019 5th Round Draft Selection.

I feel that McQuaid is what Toronto is missing; a tough RHD. I feel like a 2nd may be a lot, but I think it may be worth it, especially since Boston has a surplus of defence like McQuaid such as Miller, Chara and now Moore. After Moore’s signing, McQuaid becomes like a 7/ 8 dman on Boston, just because of their depth. Boston saves 2million in cap too, and gets a decent bottom six forward.

Toronto D-Core:

Rielly - Zaitsev
Gardiner - Hainsey
Dermott - McQuaid

Boston D-Core:
Chara - McAvoy
Krug - Carlo
Moore - Miller.

07 Jul 2018 17:15:44
I would love McQuaid on the leafs. He is exactly what I think the leafs need as well. Talent wise, maybe not. However they do need a couple physical d IMO, which is why I suggested Bieksa a few days ago.

22 Jun 2018 23:42:16
To Montreal: 10th pick, Klefbom, Lucic
To Edmonton: 3rd pick

To Edmonton: Torey Krug
To Boston: 3rd pick

23 Jun 2018 09:27:46
Krug 3 overall jqhahahahahahahahhaha.

23 Jun 2018 17:25:48
I don’t find it that funny. Obviously it’s a terrible trade but it’s kinda weird you’d laugh that hard about a fantasy trade offer.

19 Jun 2018 21:06:47
cgy:brodie stone mangiapane
tor: nylander, hyman

cgy: ferland bennet

cgy:gillies fox 4th
nyr: bostons 1st.

19 Jun 2018 22:47:23
If you combined all the peices in all 3 trades from Calgary and offered it for Nylander the leafs would still not consider.

19 Jun 2018 22:58:13
Lol no from Toronto. Brodie and some throw aways for Nylander AND Hyman? Get real lol.

20 Jun 2018 04:09:11
@Franchise billy isn’t that term considered unacceptable now days? Regardless you’re a biased flames fan who obviously has no input to create an argument against my statement so I’ll teach you what hockey is you have a lot to learn.

First of all Nylander is an Elite 20 year old RW who is exactly what the flames need. He’s very likely 70-80 point player consitently in his prime

What I said was clearly an exaggeration but I’ll break down this deal



Bodie, Fox, Stone, Mangiapane, Ferland, Bennet, Gilles and a 4th.


Player Toronto would want- Bodie, Fox and Bennet

The rest while may be valuable to the flames organization contribute absolutely nothing for the leafs.

Fox is probably going to test UFA like Kevin Hayes, Jimmy Hayes and other college players that chose that route.

Bennet is a player I personally love I think he’ll develop into a Derrick Brassard type but his value is at an all time low

Bodie is coming off a terrible season and his value is also at an all time low IMO I believe he’ll fall off the radar much like Jack Johnson. Still a decent piece tho.

While the value may be there and possibly even be in Toronto’s favour but leafs do not take it.

20 Jun 2018 05:11:42
Pretty well put by vbb actually. You don’t trade a guy like Nylander for spare parts. You trade him for an equal value player, hopefully in the same age bracket (20-24) in a more needed position. A hurricanes-leafs deal could be done. Something around Nylander for hanifin maybe because canes need scoring and have lots of young D and leafs need D with an abundance of wingers. But to trade a guy with his skill and potential for that? And have Hyman in there too? He’s a really good penalty killer who never takes a shift off, put up 40 pts (playing with Matthews obviously helps that) and is signed for 2.25 mill for 4 years. That’s a valuable piece too.

20 Jun 2018 06:35:49
Ya but Nylander > Brodie, Fox & Bennett? c'mon there's a lot of quality there. Young D Prospect, Top 4 Dman, a young former 4th overall pick. don't tell me Toronto doesn't take that.

20 Jun 2018 11:28:53
Yeahhhhhhhh Torornot doesnt.

We spent a lot of time building up this foundation. We aren't trading Nylander for ‘pieces’ were trading him for ‘one solid piece’: (dman; hamilton, hanifin, etc), whild adding a bit.

20 Jun 2018 15:38:49
Agreed with top shelf would you trade Guadreau for Gardiner, Kadri and Dermotte? That’s also a way better package then the 3 you offered.

20 Jun 2018 15:57:04
@franchisebilly, yeah, I’m telling you leafs wouldn’t take that for nylander. But the trade also has hyman going. Hyman is a better player than Bennet currently, still young and signed cheap. Bennett has a higher ceiling if he ever reaches it, I’m not denying that. But today, you’re a better team with hyman on the ice than Bennett. Call them even for simplification. That leaves Brodie and fox for nylander?! No thanks. Willy goes for a big upgrade on D, which Brodie just isn’t. He’s a good Dman. We have 3 good Dmen (Gardiner, Rielly, zaitsev) and a young guy who might be really good in Dermott.

20 Jun 2018 23:46:13
I see your points. A more fair trade would be Hamilton for Nylander but comparing Gardiner to Brodie and Gaudreau to Nylander is kinda off. i'm just saying those are 3 really good pieces, i'm sure that package wouldn't be that bad of a return

17 Jun 2018 15:31:13
Bruins give:
- Anton khudobin
- nick Holden

Flyers give:
- petr mrazek
- Andrew Mcdonald

Bruins swap good goalie for good goalie but the bruins get the younger one and the flyers have five goalies
And the bruins aren't going to sign Holden back i know he'll be a free agent I just couldn't find a fair trade partner for McDonald but Mcdonald did good this year to add a good depth on defence

05 Jun 2018 19:15:19
Bruins - canes

To Boston : hanifan

To Carolina : Krug , bjork

05 Jun 2018 19:13:08
Bruins canes

To Boston : Hanifan

To Carolina : Krug, Bjork.

10 May 2018 23:33:46
Mtl: Petry, 2rd 2018(55 overall)

Boston: Bergeron

Boston gets a good RHD who just finished the season with 42 points and mtl get a 3 year older but good french center to try to hekp down the middle short term. Deal boston?

11 May 2018 00:07:32
I don’t know what’d be worse. Being annoying enough to post this to piss people or to actually think that this is fair.

11 May 2018 04:38:44
Classic colt.

11 May 2018 15:25:59
Bergeron was knocking on the door of hart Trophy finalist this season, centered arguably the best line in hockey, was a point a game player and scored 30 goals while missing 20 games lol that sounds like the kinda guy teams trade for second pairing D men. so clueless it’s getting unbelievable.

11 May 2018 16:09:56
Sad sad little troll.

12 May 2018 14:29:22
Worst thing I've seen in a while, pretty sure you're a troll but if you're serious, you don't really know anything about nhl.

09 May 2018 20:01:39
Edmonton: Torey Krug + Ryan Donato
Boston: Oscar Klefbom + 10th Overall Pick

09 May 2018 21:10:24
Big no from oilers.

Klefbom has more value then krug? And donato isn't worth a 10th overall?

09 May 2018 21:18:37
More likely trade is

Edmonton, 2nd round pick 2018

Boston: krug and czarnik.

09 May 2018 22:26:06
Klefbom and 2and round pick*.

09 May 2018 22:40:18
Easy no from Oilers oh my god.

09 May 2018 22:46:40
You guys do know Krug put up 59 points in 76 games right?

10 May 2018 01:25:30
Yah Krug is definitely more valuable then Klefbom but not a 10th overall pick more.

10 May 2018 15:48:51
Krug is so undervalued it's crazy. Would he get Klefbom straight up? of course not. But the guy is signed to a good contract and can rack up points with the best of them. Donato is untouchable, kid looks good. Swechamp your counter-proposal is worse than the original.

10 May 2018 23:15:47
Ya but Klef is 24 and more solid defensively. i'd say they're close in value with a small edge to Krug atm because of that great season and the two seasons before. Still tho the difference between both these guy don't make up the difference between Donato and a 10th overall Donato is good but not to that point. Should be a gpod third second line center tho.
