Just throwing out there!

Oilers: strome
Sabres: Reinhardt

Similar struggles. Maybe new team would help their production. Yes, I know that Oilers just got strome and needs more time to adjust, but Reinhardt definitely needs a new scene.

17 Nov 2017 00:02:17
Same struggles? Lol Reinhart is 2 and a half years younger, and played 90 less NHL games and only has 4 less goals. Not even close to worth it for the sabres to give up on Reinharts potential. He’s got a chance to still be really good at 22. Strome May get better, but he’s a lot less likely to live up to his hype now that he’s going to be 25 by seasons end than Reinhart is.

17 Nov 2017 01:15:47
Last year or the year before someone on here said Sam Rienhart was a top 10 player in the league. Anyone remember who that was? That was hilarious.

17 Nov 2017 04:30:41
Reinhart over Strome easily.

17 Nov 2017 05:36:16
Buffalo laughs at this proposal tho. Even I know that.

18 Nov 2017 10:44:27
Hahahahaha.
Even I wouldn't troll this bad.

Buffalo adds.

15 Nov 2017 21:29:50
3 Way Trade

To Columbus
Nugent-Hopkins

To Buffalo
Murray

To Edmonton
Kane

16 Nov 2017 01:25:52
The Oilers aren't trading Nuge for a UFA. Try again. Lol.
There's plenty other ways to acquire a rental winger.

16 Nov 2017 02:10:20
i don't see this happening at all.

16 Nov 2017 03:19:43
Interesting, Realistic, Teams fit. one of the best post ever.

16 Nov 2017 20:28:36
Trading Nuge for a UFA is a huge possibility. Next year they have some guy getting about a 11.5mill raise. Someone's got to go eventually.

14 Nov 2017 00:07:32
Buf: Kane

Van: Tanev, Eriksson, 2018 2nd

08 Nov 2017 11:40:12
Sabres Acquire:
• Rasmus Andersson
• Matt Stajan
• Adam Fox
• 2019 First Round Pick

Flames Acquire:
• Sam Reinhart
• Evander Kane

Then

Coyotes Acquire:

J.Gaudreau - S.Monahan - S.Reinhart
M.Tkachuk - M.Backlund - M.Frolik
E.Kane - S.Bennett - J.Jagr
M.Ferland - M.Jankowski - C.Lazar

08 Nov 2017 15:12:06
Wow.
Buffalo laughs in your face at that offer.

08 Nov 2017 15:24:36
1st one not enough but I wouldn't mind getting one of those players. The second one is a bit much.

08 Nov 2017 04:50:20
Calgary trades Bennett. Buffalo trades Reinhart. 2 trade. Calgary trades brower 25% retained Witherspoon klimchuk poirer. Vegas trades neal.

08 Nov 2017 05:56:40
Solid for calgary but they add to reinhart trade and also Vegas can get a way better return. Make the trade worth them taking. i'm pretty sure they wouldn't want brouwers contract holding them back for future upgrades

08 Nov 2017 15:16:20
Hmmm Flamers you say Vegas wouldn't want Brouwers contract because it may hold them back for future upgrade but then try and trade him + to Arizona. Would his contract hold them back as well then? 🤔.

04 Nov 2017 02:04:22
To Calgary
Sam Reinhart

To Buffalo
Sam Bennett

04 Nov 2017 02:57:02
Reinhart has more value.

04 Nov 2017 20:32:22
calgary adds.

26 Oct 2017 17:06:25
-Rumor of Leafs really pursuing OEL. Marner + is the rumored suggested asking price from Chyka.

-Suggested Turris is a great fit in Vancouver and they have interest. He is from somewhere near Vancouver and would be a good mentor fit.

-Averys new book tells a story of a bunch of players high on ecstasy on a plane on the way to Derek Boogards funeral. Also stories slamming Brodour, Tortorella and Kovalchuck.

-E. Kane will be traded. His asking price and term will be way to much and buffalo won't want to commit to it.

26 Oct 2017 17:35:04
OEL on Toronto would be insane but do you think they would give up marner +++.

26 Oct 2017 18:40:06
I'm not sure what they are thinking. This Marner on the fourth line situation is interesting. I think it's a win win for both teams myself. Maybe JVR resigns team friendly for a few years and sees he can win a cup there instead of going for huge money some worse team.
It's interesting, I would however want to be able to talk to OEL and make sure he's interested in resigning with the a leafs if they are giving up Marner. OEL UFA after next seaso.

26 Oct 2017 18:44:57
Also, Sean Avery is such a douchebag. Lol.

26 Oct 2017 18:46:01
E. Kane on Ducks or Kings would be a great fit.
Ducks lose Eaves long term. I've always liked Kane's game. I would hate to see him on the Ducks, my most hated team. But man what a good fit that would be.

26 Oct 2017 19:28:39
Who's report has leafs really pursuing OEL?

26 Oct 2017 21:24:54
i don't see them giving up marner personally.

27 Oct 2017 13:12:30
Why do people think trading up a player is giving up on them? If you're trading for OEL with Marner as the centerpiece you do it. Marner is playing 4th line. Had a great season last year hitting a sophomore slump. He will be good but i don't think hell be an OEL level player.

28 Oct 2017 22:44:24
The Marner situation is not a slump at all. The points were there when he was dropped to the 4th line. Babcock was not happy with the defensive side of his game. Nobody is giving up on him either.

26 Oct 2017 05:03:42
Buffalo
Sam Reinhart
3 round 2019

Montreal
Galchunuk
Davidson.

26 Oct 2017 11:32:36
Really good . you should post some more.

26 Oct 2017 16:24:18
Reinhart > Galchenyuk
3rd > Davidson

Easy no for Buffalo.

26 Oct 2017 16:55:41
Lol. Sad troll.

26 Oct 2017 04:56:31
From Buffalo Sam Reinhart and 3round pick 2019 for Davidson and Galchenuk montreal.

26 Oct 2017 16:55:51
Sad troll.

25 Oct 2017 03:24:14
Seen that buffalo is working on a
blockbuster trade involving Sam Reinhart and or Evander Kane so how bout this

Buffalo: Sam Reinhart, Zach Bogosian, Evander Kane.

Vancouver: Chris Tanev, Brandon Sutter Ben Hutton, and a 2nd and a 3rd

Something like that as a good base maybe to start with.

25 Oct 2017 04:22:25
Lol. Huge no from buffalo. Make a deal around one of Kane or Sam. Not both.
That's a bad attempt at both of them.

07 Sep 2017 17:00:34
Lol. McGuire says Tavares would choose Buffalo over Montreal if he becomes a free agent.

07 Sep 2017 18:02:59
McGuire is on interstellar levels of idiocracy.

07 Sep 2017 18:08:42
I said I wouldn't count out buffalo a while ago. Grew up close and has family connections there too. However with sabres having eichel and habs having daneault as their top actual center lol if he wants to be 'the guy' habs would be a great fit.

07 Sep 2017 18:18:11
Wow lol.

07 Sep 2017 19:23:48
Why would Buffalo need him? Eichel and OReilly. that's going to be about as good a 1, 2 center combi in the league. top 5.

07 Sep 2017 21:58:39
He could also be meaning that Tavares would rather play in the city on Buffalo than the city of Montreal. Very possibly true.

08 Sep 2017 13:36:22
Yup, that's what I think. Playing opportunity wise, habs. Personally and family wise. maybe buffalo.

09 Sep 2017 17:50:14
Sosa so you're telling me that an O'reilly-Tavares swap wouldn't make a HUGE difference? Tavares >>>>> Orielly. Eichel and O'Rielly.

06 Sep 2017 15:38:48
Buffalo:
Jimmy Howard G

Detroit:
Chad Johnson G
3rd 2019

Edmonton:
Darren Helm C
Mike Green D

Detroit:
Ryan Nugent-Hopkins C
2nd 2019
3rd 2018

Arizona:
Frans Nielsen C
2nd 2018
2nd 2019

Detroit:
Christian Fischer RW
3rd 2020

Detroit signs Andreas Athanasiou and rebuild this year selling off at trade deadline...

06 Sep 2017 15:44:56
Lol. Not a chance by Edm. Take out the pics and I still say no. Especially if they sign Franson. Zero need for Green. Maybe they take a shot at Green at deadline for a pick. But don't expect Nuge back in a deal for those two. Wow.

And Arizona is fine at center now after acquiring Stepan.

Buffalo is going with Lehner.

These are bad.

17 Aug 2017 19:11:52
Detroit is in cap jail. Even after putting Franzen on LTIR, they still have under a mill with Athanasiou still to sign. Buffalo takes advantage and acquires speedy winger Nyquist and a overpaid Sheahan from Detroit. Nyquist immediately makes our top-6 stronger and allows Reinhart to fall into his natural position at center to create 3 strong scoring lines. Buffalo sends Detroit Girgensons whose a very solid two-way center but needs to find a way to start scoring again in a new system, a young offensive winger in Baptiste who should be in the NHL this year or next, and a offensive RHD with some upside in Nelson.
Detroit trades:
Nyquist, G
Sheahan, R

to Buffalo for:
Baptiste, N.
Nelson, C.
Girgensons, Z.

17 Aug 2017 20:45:16
This is an interesting deal, I don't know much about Baptiste or Nelson to truly understand their values. Detroit's prospect needs is quality Centers or Defenseman because that's our biggest long-term weakness considering our depth of winger prospects.

Detroit has no need for Girgensons who is a 2-way Center who underproduced, Detroit has that already.

Now Nyquist has a NTC I believe, not sure he would waive for Buffalo while he is available for the right price as well.
Sheahan is available but since his value is low, may not love him yet.

Does Buffalo have any young current D-men or high quality D-prospects besides Nelson they may consider moving? Is Jake McCabe available? What's the ask for him?

17 Aug 2017 20:48:10
Also would Buffalo be interested in Rochester, NY native Jimmy Howard to help with our cap problem.

I would take picks/ prospects in exchange. It gives Buffalo three goalies but they could move the underperforming one. Howard when healthy plays well and might be a good fit. Lehner has been shaky at times so having Howard might a good insurance.

17 Aug 2017 22:57:49
Datsyuk, thank you for your comments. I actually saw this on a different fan forum and had the same impression as you, but the responses were overwhelming favorable so I wanted to test this trade here. I also thought of Howard, especially since Gionta is from Rochester. Baptiste appears to be ready to make the jump to the NHL, Nelson's top end IMO is bottom 6 D-man and Girgensons had one good 3/ 4 season and was voted to an all star game. So Detroit is getting cap relief and a top 6 prospect, a bottom six forward, and bottom pairing defense-man prospect.

18 Aug 2017 17:49:18
Van Sutter. pit Daniel sprong and a third. van tanev Daniel sprong and a second roand pic maybe 2. Edm jesse puljujärv.

18 Aug 2017 23:19:05
@sbr2017

Thank you for this post and coming up with some ideas here. I do see why this may be favourable on other sides. I think value wise we are somewhat close here.

However, is there any other available prospects you would be willing to move with similar values. Detroit needs a top 6 potential C because behind Larkin it's a little up for grabs or a Defense prospect that could reach top 4 or higher potential. Just need wise they would be better fits. Nelson seems to be kind of what we already have in Ouellet/ Sproul unless they can step up, so seemingly redundant for us. Similar to what I said about Girgensons as we already have guys like Helm/ Glenndenning or even Sheahan who underproduced but plays strong 2-way game.

I see a deal being possible here, just looking for more need focused players while Baptiste is useful, just not a position that needs to be filled since we have options.

Any suggestions? Also would be willing to take picks if you can't meet the needs.

12 Aug 2017 23:45:35
Buffalo trade Josh Gorges, Zegmus Girgenson and 2018 2nd to
Boston Bruins for Spooner

Buffalo could use a Left Center on the 3rd line and PP
Boston could use a Left Defense-man, Girgensons could fill the 4th center spot, plus a pick, which if the Sabres miss the playoffs could be pretty good.

Spooner is essential a spare part for Boston as are Gorges and Girgensons for Buffalo.

Please let me know what Buffalo needs to add. If one should consider commenting please include constructive suggestions.

15 Aug 2017 04:34:44
I was hoping for comments, 12 unbelievable does not indicated why it is unbelievable. But 5 believable leads me to think that the unbelievable are split 50/ 50.

10 Aug 2017 02:41:29
Buffalo trades:
Girgensons,
McCabe,
Ghule,
Nylander

to Colorado for

Duchene

Please explain who needs to add or how to improve on this trade.

10 Aug 2017 05:53:42
For a sabres fan o assume due to your name why would u make this trade that's a hell of Lot.

10 Aug 2017 13:07:32
Thank you Mike13isback. I thought I may get some push back because there are not any top line players nor 1st round picks going to Colorado. IMO Girgensons is just hanging on because he had one good 3/ 4 season and was selected to an all star game (I would have liked to see Buffalo resign Grigorenko and trade Girgensons) . McCabe is the best player of the group, who would really hate to lose, but now appears to be a 2nd line D-man. Ghule appears to be the same. Nylander is a conundrum, is he a top line player or too small to play in the NHL? A year in the AHL and 4 games with the Sabres leads me to be it is the latter.

10 Aug 2017 15:39:14
can't be doubting Nylander already. 4 games and you think he's too small for the NHL? The kid has massive upside, pedigree and the way the league is now, he will be fine. He's listed at 6'1 179lbs, Marner is 6'0" 170. He's only a year removed from being drafted so he is in the exact spot Marner was a year ago. Marner just had 61 pts in his first 77 NHL games. Nylander could do get this year. If you're talented enough, and given a chance, the size means nothing anymore. I can only imagine what leaf fans would think if we traded Marner last year in a package for someone 8 years older and he did that for another team. Sabres have great pieces, just taking a little longer than hoped but they got to be patient with kids like Nylander.

10 Aug 2017 17:50:04
Unbiased Jim thanks for the comments. If Nylander is 6.1 there are a lot of 7 foot NHL players. He looked very small when I saw him play. That being said, I just wanted to see what other people thought of the trade. As I said above I thought other contributors would think I was offering too little. BTW yes the rebuild is taking WAY too long, IMO Murray could hardly have done worse job rebuilding. Five years ago, hockey sports writers voted buffalo to win the cup this year, now I think they are predicting the Sabres to miss the playoffs this year. Not a very productive rebuild. Murray mis-handled so many assets, drafted poorly, asked for too much when trading Stewart and Moulson, and gave away too much in other trades.

10 Aug 2017 23:45:01
Not terrible but seems like a bit too much from Buffalo for someone they don't exactly really need. Avs take this imo. Nylander is a top prospect for Buffalo and Guhle probably is their best defensive prospect. McCabe is no slouch either, seems like a good young top 6 D, potential top 4 guy for you. Girgensons probably doesn't have much value in this deal but would be an ok bottom 6 guy. Sabres already have a solid top 6 forward group of Eichel, Reinhart, ROR, Okposo, Kane (probably will walk next year) ( (Nylander and Middlestat coming up within the next few season) ) . Sabres should target someone like a Tyson Barrie (puck moving top 4 Dman) instead of a Duchene (1st line/ top 6 forward) .

09 Aug 2017 22:20:32
Buffalo:
M. Duchene C
E. Johnson D

Colorado:
Z. Bogosian D
A. Nylander LW
E. Kane RW
1st 2018
2nd 2019

10 Aug 2017 02:15:59
Don't see the pieces the avs want. They wanted young D with high potential. They're getting a decent Dman on a big contract that's older than they wanted, 1 year of Kane who could be more of a headache than he's worth, 1st and 2nd would have to have no conditions meaning the first could be a lottery, and obviously Nylander is a great piece.

10 Aug 2017 16:21:27
I think that's an overpayment from Buffalo. also, Like Jim says, don't see what Avs want there either. they want young D.

11 Aug 2017 14:22:53
Nylander
Guhle
McCabe
Pu
1st-2018

for
Duchene
Johnson

This doesn't help next year but the Av's are rebuilding and this helps.

25 Jul 2017 04:13:36
To ottawa : Jack eichel

To buffalo : ryan dzingle, logan brown, nick paul, a 1st in 2018, and a 3rd in 2019

Ottawa gets an inexpensive counter to Toronto's Austin Matthews and top end forward assuming he can stay healthy.

Buffalo gets a couple draft pick in case the players don't work out, plus 1 of the fastest players in the league who can slip into there top 6 now in dzingle, a top prospect with top 6 potential (again assuming he stays healthy) in Logan Brown, and a big body power forward prospect who could play a shut down role on their bottom 6 in nick Paul.

Eichel and the buffalo coach don't see eye to eye anyway so it makes sense for both sides.


Ottawa new lines (not necessarily in this order)

MacArthur turris Ryan
Hoffman brassard stone
Burrows pageau eichel
Smith white pyatt

Claisson Karlsson
Phaneuf Chabot
Oduya Ceci

Scratches

Harpur borvievski wingles.

25 Jul 2017 05:12:36
Is this a joke?

25 Jul 2017 05:24:31
Really? Then you stick a elite centerman on the third line. only way buffalo trades Eichel is if Karlson is coming back, so it's not even slightly realistic.

25 Jul 2017 06:26:56
I would like to apologize on behalf of all sens fans for this gentleman's stupidness.

25 Jul 2017 11:22:57
Chabot would be a good starting point.

25 Jul 2017 13:03:34
So many things wrong with this there is no good place to start.

25 Jul 2017 13:57:28
1) in the same division. Why would Buffalo give otttawa 'an answer to Austin Matthews'. They need one too!
2) not nearly enough coming back to trade 20 yr old #1 centre
3) eichel on the third line?!
4) inexpensive? For another season, then he's going to be asking for his due, which will make him the highest paid sen
5) Sabres fired the coach because they apparently didn't get along, new coach hasn't started. They didn't just fire bylsma and pay him millions to leave, to give away eichel.

25 Jul 2017 13:58:37
And hoff, we don't blame you. We all feel embarrassed by our own fans from time to time.

25 Jul 2017 15:25:58
Completely understand Hoff.

Right when I thought I've seen it all, this gets posted.
Could be the worst proposal in history of bad proposals.

25 Jul 2017 16:02:55
Hoff. i'm a Habs fan. so. well you read some of the posts from us Habs fans. lol. no need to apologize for fellow fans. Lol. that's all i'd do., and i'm sure some would have ti for me as well, cause i'm far from perfect myself.

25 Jul 2017 17:34:06
Hahaha 👍.

25 Jul 2017 20:54:36
Your kidding right? 2 young blue chip prospects both top 6 potential 1 already in top 6 calibre today plus a big body role player and a 1st and 3rd pick

for a relatively unproven top 6 foward, ill be it crazy potential, and injury prone since day 1 who has shown attitude issues towards coaches

Is somehow not enough to get him? Rofl

Sorry guys 1 sakic in the league is enough this is the real world not nhl video games where you ask the world for a star player lol

And mertle. eichel wouldn't be enough for karlsson's jock strap bud dream on.

25 Jul 2017 21:08:12
I'm just curious though. I like to think I follow the league pretty closely and would like to know if I'm missing something here?

But what exactly has eichel done so far to merit more than 2 blue chip prospects and a 1st round pick let alone adding a 3rd and a decent big body prospect on top of all that besides getting benched a number of times, arguing with the coach a number of times, and being injured a number of times?

Just wandering where the trade logic from some of the people on here comes from? It's crazy to think how some players are so overvalued to some people while other players who have earned more respect than what they're shown get so under valued.

Sorry to tell you folks but karlsson and Chabot are not the only talented players or prospects on the sens rosters. And that's just 1 team I'm talking about here.

25 Jul 2017 23:54:04
I agree that Eichel doesn't have the same value as Karlson at this point in time. Eichel had 57 points in 62 games last season. Draisatl barley beat him in ppg standings having played a good church of the season on McDavids wing (not a knock on draisatl cause he's awesome) my point is that Eichel had a good year despite starting late due to injury and still put up good numbers on s less than mediocre hockey team. Dzingel is 25 years old and just cracking sens lineup, nick Paul is 22 years old and doesn't look like he'll make the team this year or next. The only one that has decent value is brown and mid to late first. I think the only way to make the sabers think about it would be to start with chabot and white. That's the price you pay for s 20 year old potential franchise player.

26 Jul 2017 00:20:38
25 year old Dzingel with 42 career points is a blue chip prospect and 21 year old Eichel with 113 points has proven that much? I don't know maybe I misread that but wow something's gotten be wrong there.

26 Jul 2017 00:39:31
1. Dzingel isn't a prospect dude, he's 24. Safe to say he's reached his peak as a top 9 FWD.

2. Logan Brown is well on his way to being a bust, players drafted after him are developing and excelling in their leagues i. e: Micheal Mcloed drafted right after Brown.

3. Jack Eichel had a 0.93 P/ GPm which would have been the highest on the Sens. Yes. even higher than Karlssons.

Jack Eichel is a franchise player. you don't get them for scraps my dude.

26 Jul 2017 03:09:02
Senskills. 2 'blue chip prospects' lol a 4th rounder from 4 drafts ago who is putting up .50 pts per game in the AHL is a blue chip prospect? And you say we are overvaluing eichel?!?!
Eichel missed 21 games this year. As a 19/ 20 year old he had a better points per game than ovechkin, tarasenko, panarin, seguin, Tavares, gaudreau, Matthews etc etc while having a lot less to work with in terms of linemates than many of those guys. Dzingle is not a bonifide top 6 player on most NHL teams, nick Paul is not a blue chip prospect, I'll let you call Logan brown a blue chipper because where he was drafted only a year ago, and a first and third from a playoff team is a 15-31st and a 77th-93rd pick. Get real.

26 Jul 2017 03:12:13
Unless you're calling 24 year old dzingle the blue chip prospect, and n that case, nazem kadri is a leafs blue chip prospect too.

26 Jul 2017 13:37:10
Gourde, Howden, Erne, 1st 2018, 3rd 2019 for Karlsson. Karlsson can play 3rd pair behind Stralman and Girardi. Sound good?

26 Jul 2017 15:45:47
If you don't know why Eichel has just as much maybe more value to their team than guys like Driasitl, Ekblad, Murray, even Laine and Mathews, then there's no point in even trying to explain to you.

26 Jul 2017 17:02:52
Karlsson for Eichel.

26 Jul 2017 17:10:31
You would need chabot and white included to even get buffalo to answer the phone and your still gunna add to that for eichel.

26 Jul 2017 17:18:08
Eichel lead the NHL in shots per game by a land slide. He will do a lot better next season.

30 Jul 2017 19:49:56
I am using single as 1 of the blue chippers with brown considering his numbers were up there with Hoffman and stone and most of that was based on his speed alone. He's 24 years old and can still improve his puck control and become deadly.


Eichel has yet to play a full season as he's injured half the time and in the time he has been there he's been benched a couple of times and shown frustration between him and the coach. These things do factor in to trade value in real life whether fans like it or not.

I'm not by any means saying he's not extremely talented because he is but you have to look at the facts of his current situation.

30 Jul 2017 19:53:54
And to the guy who said we'd have to add white and Chabot you're insane bro. If one of those guy were to be added brown and a 1st or dzingle and a 1st would have to be taken out but no way would they have to add both.

23 Aug 2017 23:27:35
I agree with mike13, the conversation would have to start with Chabot and white and sens would still add.

11 Jul 2017 02:17:57
I am re-posting this. I received 9 believable 19 unbelievable. Unbelievable does not indicated who needs to add or who would not accept the trade at all. Please provide as much feedback as possible. It is a small trade but championships are built on small trades:
Buffalo trades Josh Gorges (retain 50%) and 2018 2nd to Boston for Kevan Miller.
The are only 3 years difference in age 32 v 29 respectively.
Their ice time is almost identical: EvS 18:48 v 17:47 and SH 2:40 v 2:00 with Gorges getting more of each. Neither gets much PP time 1:35 and 3:14 minutes for the year respectively
Gorges cap is $3,900,000 for 1 yr, Miller is $2,500,000 for 3 yr.
Gorges does not score as much as Miller pts 6 v 13
Boston only has 2 L-D, Buffalo only has 2 R-D.

Why do you need feedback so badly? It's not that bad of a trade as you can see by the response (believables, un)

This isn't a real trade, or are you the real Tim Murray?

Idk why this means so much to you to repost it twice just to get a response.

Maybe this is how the Sabres really make trades?! Tim Murray goes on multiple forums and hopes fans will talk him out of mistakes lol.

For my honest opinion on the trade tho, Boston likes kevan Miller enough to let the much younger Colin Miller be exposed when they could only protect one of the two. They were willing to take that age gap hit for the positives in his game but don't see them taking another 3 year age hit unless it's a much better player who happens to be older. That's just not the case with josh georges.

Unbiased Jim and TB3, thank you. I want to propose trades that are equal and the only way to do that is to get the sort of feedback that you provided. From what you two are saying the trade is close but Boston would not make it. That makes perfect sense.

I only wish Tim had asked about trades, he would never have traded McNaab and 2 2nds for players who are bottom 6 forwards, He would have Spooner from Boston and Pearson from LAK. I am so glad he is gone. He took a last place team with a future and made it a last place team with no future.

Buffalo trades Josh Gorges (retain 50%) and 2018 2nd to Boston for Kevan Miller.
The are only 3 years difference in age 32 v 29 respectively.
Their ice time is almost identical: EvS 18:48 v 17:47 and SH 2:40 v 2:00 with Gorges getting more of each. Neither gets much PP time 1:35 and 3:14 minutes for the year respectively
Gorges cap is $3,900,000 for 1 yr, Miller is $2,500,000 for 3 yr.
Gorges does not score as much as Miller pts 6 v 13
Boston only has 2 L-D, Buffalo only has 2 R-D.

why is that trade unbelievable?

11 Jul 2017 00:44:45
miller is better, georges hates boston.

Boston doesn't need more old guys on the point. They still have some vets (Chara, Krug, McQuaid) but they have a nice youth injection coming up with McCavoy, Carlo, Zboril, Lauzon etc, I don't think value if off just no from Boston/ pass on Gorges.

Confirmed💥

Buffalo acquires: Scandella, pominville 2018 4th.


Minnesota aquires: Tyler Ennis, Marcus Foligno, 2018 3rd.

IMO Minnesota got absolutely robbed. Buffalo got the 2 best players out of the deal Marcus foligno is at best a 3rd line LW and Tyler ennis is an overpayed 3rd line center with 2 years remaining.

LW my bad 🤗 but just my opinion.

30 Jun 2017 19:02:41
It was a cap trade.

30 Jun 2017 22:25:22
Buffalo wanting to pick up D. Good move to bring in Scandella for them.

30 Jun 2017 23:25:28
I have two Dissagrees but Minnesota did this for Pure cap reasons because of there RFA's like Granlund.

30 Jun 2017 23:46:32
And. once again Bergevin misses out on a Dman he was trying to get. oh boy., have a feeling its going to be a long season in Montreal, especially with what I believe is going to happen tomorrow on Free Agency.

And Minnesota fans were saying that galchenyuk for Scandella and 5th was fair lol!
