16 Jun 2018 23:28:16
4 rd pick not 4rd pick. He meant round 4 not 4th. I think abt intelligent people could infer that. English clearly isn’t his 1st language give him a beak. As for the trade big no from habs Nylander has fallen off the radar.

17 Jun 2018 02:35:48
Think he means 4th round pick.

17 Jun 2018 04:46:55

17 Jun 2018 06:02:24
This guy pronounces names worse than Don Cherry.

13 Jun 2018 16:06:17
3 way

Oil: Ristolainen
Buffalo: Trouba
Winnipeg: Klefbom.

13 Jun 2018 16:26:46
Klefbom for Risto lol Risto out produced Klefbom in every Catagory besides +- while being on the worst team in the nhl. Risto will not be moved. If anything it’d be Risto for Trouba. Also an added point Dahlin is left handed so is Scandella so he’d be 3rd on the depth chart where as Risto is number 1 on almost any team.

13 Jun 2018 16:54:34
Well it is risto for Trouba technically 🤔 if you can read above, because that’s how it turns out.

13 Jun 2018 16:57:48
Edmonton would be the only team to do this. Klefbom has too much of an injury history and although a good player, he’s to big of a risk. Ristolainen is the youngest and has been the most productive and healthiest of the 3. Trouba has had some injury issues as well but has produced offensively at close to the same level as Klefbom and is more physical. Factor in that risto and trouba are both right shot defencemen. Edmonton should go after Ristolainen but it’s going to cost more than Klefbom.

13 Jun 2018 17:14:40
Very heavily biased toward EDM.

13 Jun 2018 17:21:49
I really don't see the Jets wanting or needing Klefbom, especially for Trouba. If Trouba was on the block there would be over a dozen teams trying to make a deal that would bring the Jets a much better return than Klefbom.

13 Jun 2018 19:42:25
Klefbom can slide in for Enstrom islandjet, and okay who would be a better return than klef considering his performance when he’s healthy and his contract?
And thanks Pitt that’s a good explanation.

13 Jun 2018 21:50:00
Regardless Trouba is much better then Klefbom. Why wouldn’t Winnipeg just trade Him for Risto?

13 Jun 2018 21:57:28
Well why would Winnipeg trade a rhd for another rhd when they need a lefty?

13 Jun 2018 23:38:28
It’s known that RHD is harder to get in high end players than LHD. So why would the teams with the RHD take back the lesser player while giving up the premium? Makes no sense for anyone but edmonton value wise. Put yourself in the other teams situation and imagine how you would respond to it lol klefbom our and risto in with no other parts?! Come on.

14 Jun 2018 00:35:44
Edmonton needs a RHD. But would the oilers rather have Josi or David Savard? Comparing Klefbom to Trouba is like comparing Josi to Savard.

14 Jun 2018 03:38:05
That’s the worst comparison iv ever heard of bruh haha.

14 Jun 2018 03:39:55
Absolutely no from Winnipeg. Where is the incentive for the Jets to downgrade from Trouba to Klefbom?

14 Jun 2018 10:50:40
winnipeg doesn't touch this idk about buffalo oilers run away like bandits.

14 Jun 2018 14:24:25
Klefbom isn’t good. Savard isn’t good. Trouba is a excellent number two dman/ 1B to compliment a offensive D man. Josi is a Star.

13 Jun 2018 14:46:04
Ok so I'm curious just how out of touch with reality some of you are here so let's judge on reactions to this.
Ottawa currently has a new issue that pretty much guarentees a Hoffman trade so.

Ottawa : Hoffman, white, the 4th overall, ceci

Buffalo : 1st overall, 3rd rounder

Why does buffalo do this?

Because it's above maximum value for that pick and helps them in every area possible while allowing them to remain in the top 5 picks of the draft on top of that.

Why does ottawa do this?

To get a star back in the Hoffman trade who can make a difference now. Hoffman is a good as gone after recent issues involving his girlfriend so why not maximise his return value by adding a high end prospect in white, a top 4 defenceman in Ceci, and a 4th overall pick and prying the 1st overall out of buffalo?

If you all think there is something wrong with this trade or that ottawa not giving enough here you might want to feel your heads because you may be seriously sick. While dahlin is amazing the top 4 pick will be a top 6 / top 4 guy more likely than not, white will also eventually crack top 6, Ceci already top 4, and hoffman already a top 6 60 point getter. that kind of package can get you pretty much any player you want from any team.

13 Jun 2018 15:11:06
Why Buffalo doesn’t do it?

There isn’t a player in that package they need more than Dahlin.

13 Jun 2018 15:48:42
Chabot instead of Ceci and they think about it for 2 seconds.

13 Jun 2018 16:13:48
MTRL galgher 1 rnd 2 rnd
OTTW Huffman karlson both teams get what need.

13 Jun 2018 16:29:14
The whole sens franchise isn’t worth Dahlin.

13 Jun 2018 16:55:21
Mcjesus get real dude trade is an over payment as is they wouldn't have to add Chabot.

Other guy with the inappropriate name that I can't mention without having my message blocked or unseen, pretty sure Hoffman is in that deal as well as a shot at zadina or tkechuck, pretty sure buffalo needs scoring, pretty sure a 60 point proven winger/ center like Hoffman and a highly rated draftee like zadina or tkechuck provide that, they need toughness, pretty sure tkechuck alone screams toughness, they need a decent defence partner for ristolainen which ceci provides them with, and after moving kane recently depth is also a need, white gives them extra depth and future trade value as he too is expected to be a high end player down the road.

I wanted to see if my claims were true or not and these reactions to this trade specifically prove to the entire world that the people on this site are nothing more than video game gms who have no concept of reality.

13 Jun 2018 16:59:18
Habs4cup ottawa trying to move Hoffman to get them away from one another. did you not here the recent news concerning their girls?

Even if that wasn't the case that trade you mentioned isn't enough for karlsson alone let alone both lol.

13 Jun 2018 18:40:01
Rambo I feel you over value Hoffman just a little he is a good top 6 WINGER not a center. Ceci is a #3-4 Dman and is no where near what Dahlin can bring to the sabers. also if you argue that sabers need a D to play with Risto then your trade is flawed as him and Ceci both shoot Right and neither play there off side naturally while Dahlin is expected to jump right into the NHL. Also white is a great prospect but sabers don't need center depth as that's there strength. I'm not saying no based on value value wise it's close but NEED wise it's not.

13 Jun 2018 19:43:43
Lol Rambo it doesn’t matter who you give off sens buffalo will NEVER trade dahlin get a clue bud.

13 Jun 2018 22:16:13
Having a clue is not Rambo's strong suit.

14 Jun 2018 02:50:46
I couldn’t put it any better than how CTC55 laid it out.

14 Jun 2018 03:42:08
Scouts have been quoted saying Dahlin is the best defenseman they’ve seen in decades. Comparable to Lidstrom. LIDSTROM. You can’t actually think a package where the highlight is Hoffman would even be considered, can you?

Dahlin is a #1D on any team in the league. Posting trades for him is just a waste of time, it’s not going to happen.

14 Jun 2018 04:20:31
Ctc55 sure Ceci is not dahlin but he is a solid top 4 defenceman. add a top 6 winger/ center in Hoffman a top 4 pick and a high end prospect in white and the value is more than there.

Look up Hoffman's history bro he started out as a center not a winger and can play both.

14 Jun 2018 11:36:37
Rambo. Hoffman has literally never played center at the nhl level. He just flat out is not a center man. Also, Ceci is definitly not a very solid top 4 Defenceman. Sure us Sens fans can say that in hopes to increase his trade value, but he just isnt. He has proven time and again that he just isn't the elite rhd that sens management think he is.

14 Jun 2018 13:54:45
Incoming: durrrrp it’s a conspiracy you guys are undervaluing muh senatours.

14 Jun 2018 14:00:36
Rambo read before you write I never said value wasn't there, it's the fact that Buffalo's needs don't match that what you are offering rn. They are far from a Stanley cup run and this would be a trade to a team that just missed out on the playoffs and won the draft but Buffalo has to many holes to fill to give up a 1st OVA in a trade that fills maybe 1 need of 4 and only fills it for likely 2 years.

14 Jun 2018 22:44:28
And ctc55 Ceci not the only one going to sabers in this deal.

White is expected to be a top 6 center in a few years time.

Hoffman is a top 6 winger who can play center and logs big point totals of 60 plus annually for going on5 years now and isn't slowing down.

And the 4th overall is going to easily be a top 6 guy no matter who it turns out to be assuming the team with the pick don't take a major risk and pick outside the obvious top 4 players available.

Add Ceci who is top 4 defenceman and young and cheap in his own right's and how does that not equal over the value of dahlin?

I get the guy is highly hyped but honestly what's he really done to deserve that hype? In his current league he only put up 20 something points in 40 something games and his plus minus isn't that special, hec boqvist, dobson, and bouchard all have better stat totals, and while he did great at world juniors he didn't stand out as much as you would think he would and never won the gold.

To be honest I could see a small chance he follows Erick Johnson's footsteps of being over hyped and not living up to it. like I said SMALL CHANCE!

15 Jun 2018 03:53:11
Rambo you just aren’t taking anyone’s input though you just think you’re right and nothing else. So let me break it down for you

1) Ceci no matter how high you are on him he is an TFA rn and is a #4 d-man and will always be that he’s not going to blow you away with points but he can log you 20-23 minuets a night guy
2) you keep saying Hoffman is an annual 60 points guy but fact is he’s only done that once in his career and at the NHL level hasn’t played Center.
3) white is an amazing prospect but what the sabres need rn isn’t a young center as they already have there top 3 centers that are still fairly young
4) the 4th OVA is good but who knows how good the player might be
5) Dahlin was playing against men an put up those numbers he was in the SHL not a junior league like all those D you listed to go after him, when Boqvist was put into the SHL he looked out of place and weak compared to all the other players.

So Rambo if you don’t listen to what people are saying then you’ll never be agreed with stop hyping your senators up, fact is no one really knows the value of any player spot on but at the very least look at what the other team needs and work from that but as it stands rn Dahlin is worth more than anything because of the hype will he turn out who knows but as of now nothing can match his value.

15 Jun 2018 11:59:16
Ctc55 I've been following the nhl for quire some time now since I was like 8 years old dude. Hoffman played majority of his rookie and softmore years for ottawa as a center. he split between center and wing I know that for a fact as I was at a few of those early games watching him. And the 60 point thing ok I'll change my wording so you can understand his point per game average has been at a 60 points annually pace if given a full season of games, better? And he put up 56 points this past year playing on several different lines with several different line mates and not having an instant chemistry with Duchene, majority of this year was on 3rd line with pageau and he still did that so do I carry a high value on him? Yes and it's well earned and deserved.

And Ceci is what 24? He's still young and still has room to improve before his prime.

The 4th is a guarentee if used right. Svechnikov, tkechuck, and zadina are all nhl ready and will be huge stars where ever they go. Only 2 can be picked before pick 4 unless dahlin drops which is even better so either way the 4th gives great value to the trade.

Sabers are shopping cruelly dude so white coming in would easily fill that wood at number 2 or 3.

I'm not discounting everyone else I'm actually asking a number of times why certain players and picks specifically ones that belong to sens are always so undervalued compared to players and picks belonging to other teams but of the same level and constantly get no response or a laughable troll post.

15 Jun 2018 13:32:36
Its because No one and I mean NO ONE knows any value and because if you watch a guy more and more you rather fall in love with the guy or hate him I'm not trying to be mean or anything, I just pull out the facts I see I apologize if I came off as rude but I was just stating why I think it will not work and why Buffalo will not do it. And the only reason I think Ottawa would pay that price is the whole Hoffman drama going on if that wasn't happening I doubt Ottawa would do this.

18 Jun 2018 12:38:17
Ok fair enough on your last comment. I believe it would help buffalo adding those 4 as they are all pretty much nhl ready with 2 of 4 already nhl proven too, but i can see your point too as to why it wouldn't make them a contentor right away.

As for whoever made the negative comment on Ceci dude carried a pilon for 3 seasons and made that pilon look better than he is I'd say that's a good number 3 dman.

And hoff68 for a guy with that name you certainly haven't followed the player all that closely. His rookie season saw him center the 4th line and at times the 3rd line. I was at a few of those game and remember them well because I won some good money bets at a couple of them.

12 Jun 2018 20:28:58
Ryan O'Reilly to mtl
Pacioretty + Petry + 2019 1st + Charlie Lindgren to buffalo

12 Jun 2018 00:52:26
Montreal resigns Pacioretty to 5 year 6.5 to 7 mill a year deal,, then trade him and a prospect or draft pick to buffalo for O'Reilly. Cap wise that would only cost Montreal 3 mill between the 2 contracts. So that leaves 17 to 14 mill left in cap depending on if it goes up 5 or 8 million this year. Then draft Zadina to replace Pacioretty on LW. So now you got a good center and cap room to still sign Tavares or another center or even a top d man. That would make the team competitive again right away.

12 Jun 2018 13:33:06
Again sign and trades do not happen there for this deal will not happen.

13 Jun 2018 01:40:41
Zadina mostly plays RW. If MTL needed a LW/ C they would take Tkachuk.

08 Jun 2018 04:31:20
Mtl and Buf

Patches 3rd OVA and 35th OVA 38th OVA

O'Rielly and Mittelstadt.

09 Jun 2018 12:04:53
I wish loll because I would trade the 3rd for mittelstadt but I would love to try Brady Tkachuk at Center and see how that goes. He's big, skilled has a good shot and a really good passer of the puck, he has high IQ he's agile pretty fast but that's the only thing he really needs to work on his speed.

09 Jun 2018 15:13:08
Overpayment on MTL's part.

07 Jun 2018 10:25:31
Mtl weber patch

Buffalo pominville bogosian Ryan O'Reilly

Buffalo signs tavars

Patch tavars okposo
Mittelstadt eichel nylander
? Reinhart ?

Dahlin weber
Scandla Ristolainen

07 Jun 2018 13:16:01
Nylander is sadly no where near being a capable nhl player. Rienhart is also not able to take on a role as a Shut down 3c you’ve clearly never seen him play. There is no way Montreal accepts that offer and lastly you don’t throw a 19 year old on the top pairing. You put scandella on the top pair and Pair Dahlin with Risto feeding them offensively sheltered minutes.

07 Jun 2018 20:37:33
Please don't let Bergevin do something dumb. Just pick Zadina get the best player available at #3.

02 Jun 2018 04:13:50
Montreal trades:

3OVA, 2018 2nd(Toronto).

Buffalo trades: Ryan O'Reilly, Sam reinhart.

02 Jun 2018 07:07:18
Buffalo going to be greedy and want more.

02 Jun 2018 11:46:32
Sam Reinhart himself is worth a top 10 pick imo maybe not top 5 but around 7-8. he's only 21 and proved to be a good 50+ point center. Then Oreilly is worth a good chunk, only problem is his salary so that might bring down his value.

02 Jun 2018 15:41:07
50+ center? He didn't even play center he played wing.

02 Jun 2018 15:41:20
top 10 pick lol ok.

02 Jun 2018 15:41:45
He hasn’t shown the ability to be a capable Center he useally plays wing with O’Rielly.

02 Jun 2018 23:54:13
Kinda like Drouin. You’d probably want at least 2nd overal for him.

01 Jun 2018 04:52:49
Ott : chlapic, Hoffman, Ceci, gaborik
Ari : 5th overall

Ott : 5th overall, 22nd overall, Ryan, Smith
Mon : 3rd overall, pacioretty

Ott : karlsson, batherson
Buf : 1st overall

Ottawa drafts Dahlin, zadina, and boqvist

Ottawa buys out burrows

Ottawa signs free agents Tavares and Bailey

Bailey Tavares stone
Zadina Duchene pacioretty
Formenton pageau dzingle
Brown white pajarvi

Dahlin boqvist
Chabot Wideman
Borowieski lajoie
Harpur claeson


Phoenix has the cap to take on gabby and a need for scoring that Hoffman provides. They also have a need for a decent defence partner for oel and ceci is capable if filling that role. Add a solid prospect with top 6 potential like chlapic who's ready for the nhl as early as next season and it's a no brainer yes by Arizona even with the gabby contract

Patches and Ryan have been linked to each other trade wise for a while now and Montreal would be crazy not to move 2 spots down to gain an extra pick in the 1st round espessially when kachuck still available 2 picks later. At the same time ottawa does this as a means to move up plus move Ryan for a shorter term bad contract

If Dorian really is serious about full rebuild and moving karlsson then you go for the best possible return which in this case is dahlin. And since you guys like ottawa overpaying they add highly hyped prospect batherson to sweeten the deal. Karlsson alone is enough by any means but by adding batherson buffalo would be foolish to decline as karlsson has already proven to be the best defenceman in the world while dahlin and as much of an up side as he has still only put up just over 20 points in just over 40 games in the khl which while it has great high level players it doesn't have full teams at the same level as an nil team therefore dahlin cannot possibly be worth more than karlsson is right now! Adding batherson should be enough to guarentee that deal.

All this being said it's hypethetical based upon whether dorion is serious about a rebuild or not. This would be a rebuild I personally could support!

01 Jun 2018 05:24:26
Nice trade but you still only end up with two picks so can not draft three dalphin. Zadina boquist

Montreal would proably need more patch is worth a late 1st on his own
Ryan and smith is nowhere near enough to move up ryan contract is horrible.

01 Jun 2018 07:29:16
Wtf lmao oh god.

01 Jun 2018 08:29:47
Lol not like Bailey has already resigned with NYI.

01 Jun 2018 10:47:18
Much like the Senators management this proposal is an absolute tire fire.

And there is ZERO chance Tavares would sign with Ottawa. If he leaves the Island it will be to go to a contender, and he's not interested in getting paid in Melnyk IOU's.

01 Jun 2018 11:00:51
Yah I’m sure buffalo would trade debatable the most valuable player in the NHL for UFA rights that probably won’t even sign with the team and a decent prospect. There is no player in the NHL buffalo would trade the generational talent for not Crosby, not McDavid and not Mathews. Buffalo needs a dman to take that next step.

01 Jun 2018 16:58:24
Ok 1st off I did forget to put the karlsson part as a sign and trade so that's my bad. And dahlin is worth a ton but karlsson is a top 3 player in the league at this point vbbvbb so no way dahlin is worth more when he only has 20+ points in 40 + games in khl. Batherson is also highly enough hyped that he should more than make up the difference the age comparison provides.

And unsportsmanlikeconduct there is always a chance that any player can sign anywhere, it's called money talks! And buying out burrows 2 million and moving hoffman 4.25 million Karlsson 7.5 million Smith 3.25 million Ceci 2.75 million gaborik 4.85 million and changing Ryan's 7 million to patches 4.85 million thus saving 2.15 million I'd have to say they'd have more than enough to entice him to come there and still provide a competitive team with what's left and can be drafted.

And cosmic you're wrong dude sens would have the 1st from karlsson trade, the 3rd from Arizona + Montreal trades, and the 4th that belonged to them in the 1st place.
And patches not worth much more than Ryan at this point. Rumors have been putting their names together in straight up deals for a number of months now and I'm not talking about rumors from this site I'm talking credible ones. Patches is coming off
All stats are nearly equal this past season with ryan having the edge over patches. On top of that patches has 1 year leaft and will be wanting a hefty raise so contract differences essentially mean nothing. and fyi ryan is still a 5 million dollar player for what he provides so contract is bad but not as bad as you let on it is.

Oh and back to vbbvbb if buffalo was offered mcdavid straight up for dahlin they'd lick there lips force the biggest smile you've ever seen pull out the silver platter and say yes please yes please yes please until they were blue in the face don't kid yourself!

And triplets when did Bailey sign? I have yet to see a single report on that. if he did then that part is out but I don't think he did.

01 Jun 2018 17:28:24
I am curious though as to how you all would change these to make them work? Please humor me.

To me -

The Arizona trade = massive over payment to move gaborik contract while picking up a high pick

The Montreal trade = very slight overpayment to move up in draft and move Ryan contract for pretty much a 1 year rental player, possibly could take out Smith bit Montreal has inquired about him a number of times too and could use his size and defensive game which is why I added him in the 1st place.

And finally.

Buffalo trade = overpayment for sure as karlsson is a proven top 3 player in the world and dahlin still has to prove himself at the highest level.

So yes I believe all 3 are overpayments yet somehow with all of you more is still needed which is crazy when you think about it. if this was any other team with these players involves it'd be hands down let's do it but because it's ottawa you seem to think it'll cost them their entire team? Either you all really are that ignorant to the sport or this is the biggest group trolling in history. kudos if that's what it is. you definately got me.

01 Jun 2018 17:44:50
Jack Eichel is an Elite Center in the mold of a better Tyler Seguin ( for his age ) there deffense is horrendous. They need Dahlin way more then McDavid. McDavid is worth more tho. I’ll value Dahlin at the Mathews level.

01 Jun 2018 17:45:10
Sure Rambo, if all of those completely biased and unbelievable trades go through Ottawa would have lots of cap room for Tavares.

Except Melnyk would still get blown out of the water by offers from other teams because he is cheap.

And Tavares will want to go to a team with a chance to contend, which is not the Sens. Sorry.

01 Jun 2018 17:48:57
You are right i forgot about 4oa. But patches has way more value than ryan
Patches has scored 30 goals 4/ 5 years and had an off year only getting 17 ryan has 11 and 12 the last 2 years and only 1 2o goal season in the last 5 years patches is much cheaper on the cap this year
Ryan makes 7plus a year patches values is much higher.

01 Jun 2018 18:36:34
I don't have time to explain to you why all three are preposterous so I'll pick on one:

You proposed Ottawa trades the 5th overall, the 22nd overall, Ryan and Smith to Montreal for the 3rd overall and Pacioretty.

Pacioretty is worth at least the 22nd overall. A playoff bound team would give a first for him at minimum at the deadline, almost certainly more.

Smith has very little value. A career 0.3 ppg guy and a lifetime minus. He's worth a mid round pick at best, and would be the kind of guy who'd be thrown into a deal for a guy like Pacioretty as a warm body.

So basically you are suggesting Ottawa can move up from 5th overall to 3rd overall by trading Ryan, a guy who has NEGATIVE VALUE with his brutal contract. A guy they would have to include a valuable asset with, just to dump his cap. This is why this trade, like all of your proposals, is biased.

School's out kiddo.

02 Jun 2018 08:09:29
Lol Rambo I'm not your butler, use google yourself, Bailey did sign.

02 Jun 2018 11:38:15
This is hilarious. Why you even post your Sens buses homer BS is beyond me. None of this is believable. Why would Montreal take Ryan and worse picks for a better pick and Pacioretty who has more value than Ryan alone. These are just awful for a team not named Ottawa. Compete dream land.

05 Jun 2018 00:24:53
Omg people. enough with this Ryan has negative value nonsense. the guy puts up 50 to 60 points a year or 0.6 points per game annually outside of the regular season they went to conference finals. 2 million more than he's worth never has and never will constitute negative value. if it did then you better add toews getzlaff Perry kopitar couture etc to that list otherwise shut your pie holes and value the guy how he deserves to be valued, without your nonsense biass.

Jason Pominville (RW - 5.6 Million x 1 Year - 28.6% Salary Retention) to the Dallas Stars in exchange for 2018 3rd Round Draft Selection + 2019 5th Round Draft Selection.

2018 1st Round Draft Selection (SJS) + Johan Larsson (LW - 1.475 Million x 1 Year) + Eric Cornel (C - ELC) to the Los Angeles Kings in exchange for Tanner Pearson (3.75 Million x 3 Years) .

(Kings are probably looking to rebuild after a dismal end to 2017/ 18; Pearson looks to simply be a 40ish point guy, is expandable for a mid 1st and two young pieces) .

Zach Bogosian (D - 5.145 Million x 2 Years) to the Colorado Avalanche in exchange for Duncan Siemens (D - RFA) + 2019 3rd Round Draft Selection.

(Similar to Colin Wilson deal last year, Avs take on a meh player with a higher cap hit to upgrade their team) .

Sam Reinhart (RW) - 5.0 Million x 5 Years
Robin Lehner (G) - 4.0 Million x 3 Years
Nicolas Baptiste (RW) - 1.0 Million x 2 Years

Free Agency:
David Perron (LW) - 5.5 Million x 4 Years.
Matt Calvert (RW) - 2.5 Million x 2 Years
Petr Mrazek (G) - 2.0 Million x 2 Years [Assuming Philadelphia does not qualify]

Sam Reinhart (5.0 Million) - Jack Eichel (10.0 Million) - Tanner Pearson (3.75 Million)
David Perron (5.5 Million) - Ryan O’Rielly (7.5 Million) - Kyle Okposo (6.0 Million)
Evan Rodrigues (0.65 Million) - Casey Mittelstadt (ELC) - Alexander Nylander (ELC)
Matt Calvert (2.5 Million) - Zemgus Girgensons (1.5 Million) - Nicolas Baptiste (1.0 Million)

Rasmus Dahlin (ELC) - Rasmus Ristolainen (5.0 Million)
Jake McCabe (1.6 Million) - Nathan Beaulieu (2.4 Million)
Marco Scandella (4.0 Million) - Victor Antipin (1.0 Million)

Robin Lehner (4.0 Million)
Petr Mrazek (2.0 Million)

- Basically, strip this team of its waste pieces and form a new, faster team identity. Give Eichel a wingman like Pearson too.

27 May 2018 00:23:19
Some makes sense. Decent value on a lot of it, but 3 more years of robin lehner as the go to guy at $4mill? Teams in the league have goalies they would throw away better than him. They won’t be better till he’s upgraded.

27 May 2018 01:01:52
You don’t put a 18 year old dman on the top pair.

27 May 2018 03:45:05

True. problem is, he's an RFA, and they needa resign him, and qualifying would be for 4 million. Maybe not three years, but for sure they'll qualify. And I feel he could actually play decent with a better core in front of him.

21 May 2018 22:18:57
Probably way off.. and of course I want to see him on my Habs.. but what about a Buffalo and NYI blockbuster...
Tavares on a sign and trade plus a small add due to age difference.
For Jack Eichel.

I'm not a huge Eichel fan due to his personality..I think his ego may be to much to have someone who is coming in the league with even more hype than he did.. Dahlin..
Buffalo gets a strong leader in Tavares..reunited with Okposo.. NYI still gets to have a Star center..

22 May 2018 01:48:53
Islanders won’t be adding anything extra.

22 May 2018 03:08:38
No way buffalo touches this Eichel is 20 and is almost as good as Tavares. I’d trade Austin Mathews for Jack Eichel as a leafs fan. And I wouldn’t trade Mathews for Barzel and a player you could get for free in Free agency. In two seasons Eichel will out produce Tavares career highs I’m calling it right now. With that being said if I were buffalo I’d trade O’rielly and sign Tavares to be the 2 c.

23 May 2018 16:37:28
I wouldn’t trade Matthews for Eichel first off. Secondly, buffalos ownership has committed to Eichel with that massive contract and has apparently allowed him atleast some input on firing and hiring or coaches and gm lol they don’t do that and then trade him 10 months later.

19 May 2018 22:03:39
Blue Jackets trade: foligno, bjorkstrand, 1st round pick 2018

Sabres trade: O'Reilly, beaulieu, 4th round pick 2019

Panarin Dubois Atkinson
Jenner O'Reilly Anderson
Milano wennberg Vanek
Calvert Letestu Dubinsky

Would this be good for both teams? Columbus would have a pretty solid set of forwards and buffalo gets another 1st rounder and a nice prospect.

18 May 2018 16:59:00
Oiler trade drais nurse

Buffalo 1 rd pick

Oiler rnh

Car skinner

Oiler sekra russel strome 10 pick

Canucks tanev grunlund sven hutton

Oiler retain 2.5 lucic contract

Ari 3 rd pick

Oiler have a lot of cap after this to sign nash tarvars grabner bailey

Skinner mcdavid jesse p.
Sven travars bailey
Granlund nash garbner
Rattie ? aberg

Dahlin larson
Kelfbom tanev
Hutton benning / bear

18 May 2018 17:42:53
Where's Drake, Jujhar and Kassian? Lol.
Buffalo doesn't need another center. They need a #1 D man. Nuge is having great chemistry with McDavid, I hope they keep him with McDavid. And I've said this a millions times, retaining that much money on any contract or that long is so stupid, such a bad bad idea when you're close to the cap. Also, Tavares isn't singing in Edm.
Every idea here is bad.

18 May 2018 17:59:42
I don't think that Tavares is going to sign anywhere he ends up playing 2nd line.

18 May 2018 19:57:01
And lucic is not waving to spend 4 or 5 years in Arizona.

18 May 2018 22:44:43
My god. The more I look at the the more laughable it gets.
Just clueless. Absolutely clueless.

18 May 2018 13:51:41
buf: ristolanein + oreilly + 4th 2018
habs :weber +danault+last second round in 2018

weber can help dahlin to become a really good defensemen oreilly doesn’t like to play in buffalo and the second is to compense for the ages difference between risto and weber.

18 May 2018 15:48:40
Ppl that say habs fans get picked on, this is why. A great player with one of the worst contracts in hockey, a depth centre man and a 2nd for a 23 year old top pair D signed long term, a great 2nd line centre (would be habs best by a mile) and a 4th. If that is Cal Oreilly from the Rochester Americans instead of Ryan O’Reilly buffalo still laughs.

18 May 2018 15:50:28
And I love how it’s the worst of habs 2nds included, just to make sure you aren’t overpaying haha.

18 May 2018 16:40:53
This is so so so so bad.

18 May 2018 17:46:04
Hahahahahahaha. Yesssss! Let's break this down a little shall we.
Risto >>> Weber
O'Rielly >>>>> Danault
But damn
2nd >>>>>>>>> 4th
I see the Montreal logic now. That 2nd benign that much better than the fourth makes up for the other two.

17 May 2018 19:10:53
Carolina: Noah Hanifin
Buffalo: Casey Middlestadt + Sam Reinhart

Carolina: 2nd Overall Pick
Ottawa: Mike Hoffman + 4th Overall Pick

S Aho - J Staal - T Teravainen
M Hoffman - E Lindholm - S Reinhart
J Skinner - C Middlestadt - J Williams
P Di Guiseppe - D Ryan - L Stempniak

17 May 2018 19:17:09
No from buffalo on the 1st Trade not even close take out Middlestad and make it a pick or Nylander.

17 May 2018 19:22:25
Hanifin and Svechnikov
Hoffman, Middlestadt, S. Reinhart, B. Tkuchuk

17 May 2018 22:10:11
Lol wtf easy no from Ottawa.

16 May 2018 05:12:34
Calgary - Mark Jankowski + Dougie Hamilton + Troy Brouwer (cap dump) + Adam Fox
Buffalo - Sam Reinhart + Ryan O'Rielly

J.Gaudreau - S.Monahan - S.Reinhart
M.Tkachuk - R.O'Rielly - M.Ferland
S.Bennett - M.Backlund - M.Frolik
C.Lazar - N.Shore - G.Hathaway

16 May 2018 19:47:11
Wouldn TRade Hamilton alone for that
He is one of the most underated nhl dman.

16 May 2018 22:26:21
Lmao if calgary could get Reinhart and O’reilly they’d for sure trade Hamilton. They have enough dmen.

13 May 2018 20:39:29
Buffalo: Rasmus Ristolianen

Saint Louis: Colton Paryanko

Buffalo- with the addition of Rasmus Dahlin they need a a physical two way d more then a offensive dman. Paryanko looks like a a younger faster Shea Weber.

Saint Louis- gets a more offensive minded dman who can log top minutes his avg was 26:30 with Petro being defensive minded they could use a offensive d more. He would take over Petro on the top PP. he goes under the radar because he plays on the worst team in the nhl. He is just as good if not better then John Klingberg.

Both are both equally talented players that play extremely different styles

13 May 2018 22:57:42
Parayko* and this will never happen.

13 May 2018 22:58:56
However instead of saying this is dumb, this is actually pretty interesting. but yeah won’t haopen.

13 May 2018 23:58:02
Yah I agree it’s unrealistic but it’d help both franchises but while it’s a professional business both GMs would have emotional attachments with those players.

14 May 2018 02:59:46
STL isn't moving Parayko.

14 May 2018 08:10:49
STL is moving parayko.

14 May 2018 17:55:10
STL will not be moving parayko. They do not have a replacement.

11 May 2018 17:20:35
Mtl Trades Zadina

Buffalo trades mittelstad

MTL trades Gallagher, Hudon

Oilers trade RNH





11 May 2018 17:27:09
Rather have Nuge, and please tell me why you’d have Mittelstad first line center and not Nuge lol.

11 May 2018 17:27:47
Mittelstad is not ready as a rookie to take on that responsibility especially in Montreal.

11 May 2018 17:57:17
Colt did the same thing a cpl weeks ago. Was trading a ton for middlestat and then made him first line centre. Like the Drouin experiment taught them nothing.

11 May 2018 17:59:16
And Drouin atleast had 150+ NHL games experience watching and working with stamkos and Johnson etc to help him. This kid has nothing that qualifies or prepares him for that job.

11 May 2018 18:09:07
Oilers won't trade nuge for that?

11 May 2018 18:44:32
Btw I first started that Mtl 1st for Mittlestadt trade months ago
But now that Mtl has a 3rd overall, I rather draft Zadina or Zvech or Tkachuk.

11 May 2018 20:25:12
Zadina will be more valuable than Middlestadt.
Oilers say no. I hope they keep Nuge now and keep him with McDavid. I'm glad they are playing together at worlds to with Nuge on LW with McDavid. Not worth treading him away for Gallagher.
