21 Apr 2019 22:23:34
Edmonton: Jesse Puljujarvi And Adam Larsson

Buffalo: Rasmus Ristolainen

Edmonton- With Rasmus Ristolainen on the market Edmonton should be jumping on him. A top pairing Elite PP presence. Risto while isn't known to be a stud defensively he has proven to be able to play over 30 min a night. With a lesser role he'd be much more effective on Edmonton he'd be the 1D but wouldn't play as much.

Buffalo- Dahlin is the most hyped defensive prospect ever and Risto right now is overshadowing him on the depth chart there is no need having two top pairing offensive deffensman when they have no defensive dman especially now since Montour brings another offensive presence. Larsson fills the role on the top pairing with Dahlin perfectly. Jesse Puljujarvi bring a potential top 6 presence to the Sabres a change of scenery could benefit him drastically.

22 Apr 2019 00:40:31
I don't follow the Sabres but why is Risto overshadowing Dahlin on the depth chart? Doesn't Dahlin play on the left side while Risto plays on the right?

22 Apr 2019 01:01:35
Risto is basically younger Faulk (lol) and we know how you feel about him so I’m going to say no thanks from oilers. And in general no from oil, Risto was the masters winner this year oilers do not need that.

21 Apr 2019 23:54:49
Not bad tbh.

22 Apr 2019 15:49:35
1. Risto is not a younger Faulk Risto is one of the most physical deffensman in the nhl Risto is also better defensively but unlike Faulk he is the go to guy on the Sabres and has one of the highest TOIs in the NHL if you decrease his ice time I’m sure his defensive stats would look much better

2. Risto over shadows him because Risto is on the top PP where as Dahlin is on the second ( they use 1 dman on the PP)

5 mil for ferland is way too much, i'd say 3.75m for 3yr. Definitely not 5 x 5. Calgary will resign Hathaway, McEhlinney gets more aswell.

21 Apr 2019 10:57:53
Yamamoto and russell for parayko and a pick? Lool how does st louis add? Wtf no from edmonton, arizona, buffalo, ottawa, st louis.

21 Apr 2019 14:52:54
I have to say trade number 3 is so bad I thought this was a troll trade.

21 Apr 2019 15:32:20
Paryanko And Risto trades are gross.

21 Apr 2019 19:11:44
Change Arizona pick to 2nd on #2 than maybe #1 and 2# is only possible.

WAAAAY too much for marc staal at this point. you could prob get him for frolik and czarnik and a 4th.

16 Apr 2019 13:53:05
For Staal? Ill take that and run.

16 Apr 2019 14:13:51
Why do either Dallas or Anaheim do this? I think everyone takes Manson over Brodie, and Dallas loves Cogliano.

Also I like Reinhart but Flames need to keep Backlund.

18 Apr 2019 11:01:49
Marc Staal is a cap dump.

07 Apr 2019 16:30:10
Absolutely no idea why Arizona would agree to that.
No from oilers.
Hahaha wow easy no from St. Louis. Bruh. Even if top 10.
No from oilers Risto is ass.
Ferland would never sign that he’s going to be seeking more.

07 Apr 2019 19:01:03
Ristolainen can move the puck though. If that was enough for him I’d definitely do it.

07 Apr 2019 20:45:56
It's not anywhere near enough for him.

07 Apr 2019 23:12:36
All those players must really want to must really want to play in Edmonton for those low ball offers.

07 Apr 2019 23:14:10
Risto just won the nhl masters and that’s definitely not something oilers need. He can move the puck and he’s got a big shot sure but he’s horrendous in his own end. Sekera and bear are both capable puck movers so saying he can move the puck is pretty irrelevant I think.

08 Apr 2019 01:03:28
Eh, its basically Pulj for Risto tbh. Sekera doesn't have that much value, I mean, 5.5 Million for the next 2 years isn't really a good contract and after all his injuries, its unlikely someone bites on him, even for cheap. I'd say Bear nearly insulates his value, and then you got Pulj+ a little for Risto. After Dahlin, although Risto's +/ - wasn't great, its really not everything you can base the dman on [look at Ron Hainsey. lol]. I'd take him anyday on Toronto for a package of like Kapanen+Zaitsev+Borgman, but j my opinion.

08 Apr 2019 05:19:36
Getting rid of Zaitsevs contract is the key part in that, does buffalo think Kap and borg (not sure who he is tbh) are good enough to lose one of their “top” dmen and take back a bad contract.

13 Apr 2019 01:40:35
We don’t need both Ristolainen and Parayko. Larsson is better than Ristolainen. We keep him.

25 Mar 2019 19:51:51
Winnipeg: Patrick Laine( RFA ) And Jacob Trouba ( RFA )

Buffalo: Rasmus Ristolainen,Sam Rienhart,Jake McCabe, Buff 1st 2019, Buf 1st 2020 And 2nd 2021

Winnipeg: gets rid of a player who is asking for to much for Winnipeg to afford him and they replace them with a more dynamic and more importantly cost controled dman. Risto challenges Buff for the 1PP spot and has been proven he can log more minutes then anyone in the nhl. Sam Rienhart May not be the goal scorer Laine is but he is still a very good top 6 forward who can play the Center or wing. Jake McCabe can potentially help out Winnipeg on the weaker left side. The 3 picks make sure Winnipeg builds a solid foundation under there already powerhouse team.

Buffalo: Gets the next up and coming goal scorer in the NHL with a change of scenery and more playing time I expect him to be a 60 goal guy. Jacob Trouba is exactly what the Sabres deffense needs. A solid defensive dman who can log top pairing minutes and support the generational defensive talent in Dahlin.

25 Mar 2019 20:06:06
Big no from Buffalo

25 Mar 2019 23:05:57
Well your opinion to me personally with all do respect I personally take with a grain of salt considering your horribly lopsided proposition towards the flames posted recently involving Laine.

26 Mar 2019 00:33:52
Laine will not be traded however I do think that if Trouba hasn't signed a long term contract by the trade deadline he will be moved. At that time there will be at least a dozen teams that will offer the Jets a good package to get Trouba. At that time Chevy will see what the Jets need to improve the Jets and make the right move.

26 Mar 2019 00:48:15
I have to say no from Buffalo as well VB. I think Ristolainen Is better or at least equal to Trouba.
However, also on the Jets end of it. I wouldn't want to trade Laine. adding Reinhart and the picks are good. but. jus seem like both team have a lot to lose.
Good post though. its interesting.

26 Mar 2019 02:30:04
Why would Winnipeg make this trade though. They are in win now mode and I see a clear decline here, they don’t need the picks they need to go for the cup now as they are contenders.

26 Mar 2019 05:56:44
Winnipeg would do it because they’d save a ton of cap space. I’d say with contracts and this season the players are having drop at least two of the picks.

26 Mar 2019 14:53:26
McJesus is right Winnipeg wouldn't want first round picks, if they clear cap it'd likely be for more cost controlled players to help their Stanley Cup push.

26 Mar 2019 19:52:33
Well also a big point of it from a Winnipeg POV is that they save a ton of cap space. While Laine clearly has a ton Of value it’s being compensated In this trade. Why I personally believe it’d be beneficial for the Jets to trade Laine?

A- Jets save a ton of cap space.
B-Laine has struggled and yet the Jets are still one of the best in the game.
C-Laine gets almost no even strength playing time on the Jets
D-He Is high profile player that obviously wants to be the go to guy and clearly he is not on the Jets with Wheeler taking his spot on the 1st line.
E-The value they get in trading Laine would be huge.

I think this makes both teams better now and in the future.

27 Mar 2019 15:06:56
A- they save cap space during their win now time. They have badish contracts they can move.
B- ya he's struggled and he's been a great playmaker of late.
C- ya he gets no minutes essentially just sits in the press box. Laine is on the second line his minutes are fine. He's 20 getting experience on the second line
D- where has it ever been said he wants to be the go to guy.
E- they get huge value keeping him.

27 Mar 2019 18:00:00
A - You don’t create cap space by trading away top end players. The Jets would be better keeping Laine and moving bottom 6 guys if they want space.

B - Laine has struggled, so there is no reason to trade him for an inferior return. Better off keeping him and letting him return to normal.

C - Shows you don’t watch the Jets.

D - Nothing like that has ever been mentioned.

E - The value of keeping Laine is greater than anything in this offer.

F - The Jets are also giving up Trouba in this deal and not being adequately compensated for his addition.

27 Mar 2019 20:49:19
A “great playmaker” I watch the jets and he is nothing close to a Elite playmaker like Getzlaf/ Backstrom/ Bergeron etc let alone “ great “ like Crosby or Gretzky playmaking wise.

Trouba And Liane will sign for most likely a combined 20 million. Jets don’t have 10 million to dump.

Risto is better then Trouba and the rest is for Laine.

Obviously Laine is the most valuable peice in the offer like what? Do you not know how trades work?

He averages a little over 15 min a night where as Mathews averages about 20.

27 Mar 2019 21:11:45
Oh my gosh Matthews averages 5 more a night. Your point being? He's not Matthews.
I said as of late. Meaning he hasn't always been a great playmaker and will likely not continue with this. He's a shooter.
Where are you getting 20 million. You've just made up a number. Is this basing Laine at 11 trouba at 9? Neither of which will happen.

27 Mar 2019 22:31:46
Well Vbb, we all knew you were terrible at player evaluations, but it also appears you are terrible at contract values as well. Kyle Dumbass might give out contacts like that (see Nylander), but not Chevy.

Risto is a huge step down from Trouba and the rest of the offer doesn't make up for that loss and also giving up Laine. So, it was just a bad offer that resulted in the Jets downgrading two players drastically to save cap space.

28 Mar 2019 11:22:38
Honestly before seing yha 3 first rd pick I togujt it was clost. Take 2 first of and it's a deal think.

28 Mar 2019 11:25:02
Honestly, I think that’s too much for Laine. Maybe I’m crazy but I think Risto, McCabe and Reinhart = Laine and Trouba. Maybe Buff adds a second, but definitely not two firsts.

I get it, Laine is a beast, potential 60 goal guy and all that, but is it really worth it to give up so much just for him? I don’t think so.

28 Mar 2019 11:25:55
Value isn't off but it doenst do much for winnipeg. I think winnipeg would ask for both nylander and mittelstad for laine.

28 Mar 2019 11:32:19
If anything Jets trade Blake Wheeler not Laine. You don't trade a 21 year old superstar to give more space to a 32 year old superstar on the decline.

11 Mar 2019 20:45:15
San Jose Sharks:

•) Joonas Donskoi

Buffalo Sabres:

•) 3rd Round Pick 2020

•) Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen.

11 Mar 2019 23:50:37
Huge no from sharks.

12 Mar 2019 00:05:22
not enough for luukkonen.

12 Mar 2019 02:54:35
Luukkonen is years away from NHL, if ever. Why not Sharks just draft their own prospect instead of trading good players for one. Sharks in “win-now” say no.

12 Mar 2019 14:27:41
exactly zamboni! big no from sharks.

13 Mar 2019 00:44:34
I actually don’t understand how my comment has 5 disagrees lol makes no sense for San Jose as they are cup contenders rn.

13 Mar 2019 04:44:58
I didn't disagree or agree on your post mcjesus but maybe because the trade won't happen until this summer anyway could have something to do with it. Also donskoi has not really been impressing sharks management lately.

13 Mar 2019 14:03:21
Fair enough habby.

24 Feb 2019 23:01:43
Toronto Acquires:
Jason Pominville [5.60 Million x 1 Year]

Buffalo Acquires:
Gabriel Gagne [700K x 1 Year]
2019 3rd Round Pick
Conditional 2020 5th Round Pick **Becomes a 2020 4th if Toronto advances past Round1.

Buffalo is currently 6 points back of Carolina/ Pittsburgh, and has struggled as of late. Pominville hasn't been as good as he was in the beginning of the season, so Buffalo could be looking at moving him. If Hagelin [with retention] brings back a 3rd and a 5th, Pominville with none should bring back a 3rd and a 5th as well. For Toronto, they acquire a bottom six vet who could prove handy in the playoffs against tougher teams like Boston.

25 Feb 2019 00:12:05
I think Toronto could put that money to better use.

18 Feb 2019 09:19:20
Toronto Trades

Pittsburgh Trades
1st Round Pick 2019
4th Round Pick 2019 (Sabres Pick)

Thoughts ?

20 Feb 2019 01:10:20
Gardiner seems to be getting more valuable with every post.

10 Feb 2019 20:46:12
There have been a lot of similar trades to this one but here we go...

TO CAR: Kapanen
To TOR: Pesce

To BUF: Zaitsev
To TOR: 3rd rounder

To STL: 4th Rounder (STL's that the TOR owns)
To TOR: Maroon

Seen a lot of Pesce + Ferland deals to the Leafs for Kapanen + Zaitsev but I do not think the Leafs have the additional pieces that Carolina would want to pull it off. Kapanen has been rumoured to CAR for a long time and could be the final push for a playoff spot.

Buffalo in need of right side defensive upgrades and have the cap space. I am sure the Leafs would hate to trade in the division but if Pesce is going to come in they have to dump that contract

Maroon is not playing well this year but perhaps a team change will spark a resurgence. May not be as good as Ferland but comes at a much cheaper price

10 Feb 2019 21:34:42
So before wasn’t the rumor Pesce for Nylander? So no from Carolina.
Huge no from Buffalo, they won’t take that contract in order to “upgrade” (I have no clue how their d corps is) their right side defense I’m sure they can get other options.
If Toronto can get Maroon for a 4th they should take it.

10 Feb 2019 22:36:21
CAR would ask for more for Pesce IMO, maybe Kapanen and another prospect or a pick. BUF won't take on Zaitsev's contract without more incentive to the deal, especially as they inch closer and closer to contending for a playoff spot. The 3rd trade I can see working out though.

11 Feb 2019 01:59:54
HAs been reported buf interested in zaitsev but leafs would have to eat some money.

11 Feb 2019 03:48:11
Only Charelli would have traded Nylander for Pesce.

08 Feb 2019 15:41:45
To Buffalo Tyson Barrie with extension contract
To colorado: 1st round pick

Buffalo still in race and they could trade another defensman to improve goalie or offence.

For Colorado Sakic still in rebuild process and with 3 1 round pick this year and probably 2 in top 10 choice, they will select a center and winger who can play next year.

Buffalo could push with that trade because they will have 2 other first round pick.

08 Feb 2019 16:27:45
Barrie is worth a lot more than a 1st. Especially with extension in place.

06 Jan 2019 16:52:44
Jimmy Howard 5.3m

2019 1st round pick (San Jose)

06 Jan 2019 18:07:34
Hahaha oh no no.

06 Jan 2019 20:52:45
Buffalo's tandem has been great this year, no need to change.

04 Feb 2019 22:05:43
I think Jimmy is going to resign with the Wings!

06 Jan 2019 16:26:56
Darren Helm 3.85m for 3 more yrs
2019 5th round pick (Buffalo)

Michael Frolik 4.3m for 2 more yrs

I'm thinking with Frolik's agent voicing displeasure about his lack of play time, and Calgary needing to cut some salary to make room for Tkachuk's contract this could work.

Detroit saves cap space for the short term by losing an extra year of Helm's contract.

25 Dec 2018 21:43:19
Buffalo Sabres:

•) Zemgus Girgensons

•) Marco Scandella

•) 4th Round Pick 2019

Toronto Maple Leafs:

•) Zach Hyman

•) 5th Round Pick 2019

Toronto gets a very strong and good 4th line Center and and one of the best penalty killers, and in def, good 2/ 3 line def


26 Dec 2018 02:56:39
Leafs are not moving Hyman, not right now anyways.

26 Dec 2018 15:35:27
I’d definitely do this from a leafs POV. Has scandella been that bad?

25 Dec 2018 21:38:54
Buffalo Sabres:

•) Zemgus Girgensons

•) Marco Scandella

Toronto Maple Leafs:


24 Dec 2018 18:42:09
So the chances of this happening are very low I just thought it would be fun to see what the Sabres would have to give up for the hometown kid Patty Kane. Sorta makes sense cause CHI NEEEEEEDS to rebuild and sabres are on the rise

BUFF: Reinhart, Pilut, Luukkonen, 2019 2nd

Reinhart is a hell of a player, steady incline every single year he has played, really think he could be a PPG player in a couple years. Pilut was the leading scorer for D in the SHL and is only 22, definetly NHL ready and the hawks need help on the blueline now. Luukkonen is a solid G prospect, i honestly think adding a 1st might be a bit much, i think the value is there and it makes sense for both teams. If yall dissagree what do you think Kaners price would be?

24 Dec 2018 21:55:20
I don’t know much about Pilot but from what you said it sounds pretty good. I just don’t know that Kane gets traded. Although I think it would be smart for Chicago to totally clean house and rebuild - they have the assets to do it quickly if done right - I just don’t think they will.

25 Dec 2018 03:02:29
Patrick Kane would be one of the few players I would keep if I was chicago.

25 Dec 2018 05:24:29
I hate to agree with Habby, but well. yeah i agree with habby, i'd trade just about everyone but kaner at this point.

25 Dec 2018 13:25:32
The way kids come into the league ready to be stars at 18, 19 and 20 now, these bottom teams can turn it around so quickly. Kane at his age will still be a superstar when the hawks are better in a couple years. if they make a couple good decisions.

27 Dec 2018 06:24:20
Chicago should have kept joel. Q and kane rest is up for trade.

04 Feb 2019 22:11:03
WHAT ARE YOU SMOKING! Hawks will never trade Kane or Toews any rebuild will be around these two life Hawks. Even if Kane was traded it will be for equal talent and no team is in that postion! Keith or Seabrook will be traded and the Hawks will free up cap space to Panarin for a couple years at 8.5M and push the Hawks back into cup contention!

18 Dec 2018 12:04:36
Leafs: Kasperi Kappanen, Nikita Zaitsev, Timothy Liligren, 1st 2019 and 2nd 2019

Blues: Colton Paryanko and Patrick Maroon

Leafs: Colton Paryanko fill a huge hole on RD and replaces Gardiner on the 2nd PP next year. He is exactly what the leafs need and he's the perfect fit. Maroon provides depth for a playoff run. I personally think the leafs overpay here but considering both players are such a great fit I'm fine with that.

Saint Louis: the blues get a roster player in Kappanen who is young and has lots of potential. He has game breaking speed and he should help put pucks in the net. Zaitsev is a serviceable dman who should help take the load off Petro with the loss of Paryanko. While he's in there for cap reasons I believe he'd bring value to the Blue and a team like Buffalo would give an asset for him. Timothy Liligren has potential to be a top 4 dman and is on the right track. The blues get what they get with the two picks.

In my opinion I believe no matter what blues fans will come out sour from the results of any Taresanko/Petrangelo/Paryanko Trade.

18 Dec 2018 14:57:52
I can't see the Blues doing it, since you're making them take on Zaitsev as a 5 year cap dump. You would need to add something as an incentive to take Zaitsev. Probably something like Nylander, Liljegren,
1st and drop Maroon if you want to dump off Zaitsev. Redwing1 should give us a good idea when he sees this.

18 Dec 2018 17:46:22
Or the can just flip Zaitsev for a pick.

18 Dec 2018 17:58:54
"Just flip him for a pic". Why don't you do that with him, you make it sound so easy.

18 Dec 2018 18:23:40
Exactly, if it is so easy to flip Zaitsev for something, then the Leafs should do that and then add what they get to the offer instead of having the Blues gamble on being able to move Zaitsev.

Zaitsev was given a bad contract due to poor player evalution by the Leafs. It is not the Blue's responsibility to bail the Leafs out on that unless they receive extra compensation to do so.

18 Dec 2018 20:25:25
Quite a few teams will try to unload poor contracts like Zaitsev's at Seattle at the expansion draft. Zaitsev would have to be taken out of this trade and replaced by a player who's on a better contract and can contribute to the Blues now.

18 Dec 2018 20:30:36
I don’t understand what’s wrong with Zaitsev he’s more then serviceable and has a rocket of a shot.

18 Dec 2018 20:27:21
It’s not that easy to flip him for a pick that makes sense. Problem is he is a decent playerand we are weaker on D. So as much as the cap space would be nice, just to give him away leaves a hole. I don’t even think the cap hit is too bad. Maybe 500-750k high. It’s just the 5 years. He looked really good in his first year and then struggled last year after a broken foot, illness and life adjustments. Has Bounced back again this season and has been good. He’s a $3.75-$4 mill Dman I think. But the 5 years left is tough.

18 Dec 2018 22:13:56
I feel like Buffalo would easily take him and give a late pick he’d help them out.

18 Dec 2018 22:49:45
Zaitsev is worth maybe 2.5 million a year. He is being paid about 4.5 million a year for the next 5 years. that's a lot of cap, I don't think it will be as easy to drop that cap off as you guys seem to think.

18 Dec 2018 23:21:10
Any you proposed this same trade Redwing so you clearly believe it’s fair.

19 Dec 2018 01:00:24
Buffalo wouldn't just take him for you with the players and contracts they'll have to give out. They can't just take your problem for you. They'll have to watch there money here for the next few year. And you say you don't trade within the conference let alone the same division 🙈.

19 Dec 2018 00:35:11
I don't have an issue with it. Rather have sandin as well but rest of my fan base scoffed at it.

19 Dec 2018 11:00:55
I like this trade but he’ll probably only get 2/ 3rds of this deal as the team trying to trade a star never gets a good deal. Zaitsev isn’t a star he won’t make or break a game he can be traded anywhere.

19 Dec 2018 18:22:21
He defiantly can't be traded anywhere. His cap hip and bad play dictates that.

17 Dec 2018 08:02:14
Buffalo Sabres:

•) Zemgus Girgensons

Boston Bruins:

•) Joakim Nordstrom

•) 4th Round Pick 2019

•) Pavel Shen.

17 Dec 2018 15:38:03
No Idea who this Shen kid is, but if I look at this trade based on the other parts involved, I think it's fair but kind of useless for both teams so I don't think it happens.

And what I forgot to add is that its the same division so again this trade is unlikely.
I'll use the Leivo trade as a comparison.
Two teams from two different divisions.
The leafs only made the trade to clear space, but they made sure Leivo didn't go to an eastern team in case he started tearing it up, which he is doing with the Canucks (probably because he is playing with Petterson and Boeser but whatever)

Buffalo: Okposo,Ristolianen,Sam Rienhart, Alex Nylander And 1st 2019

Saint Louis: Taresanko And Paryanko

Buffalo: Gets a goal Scoring RW to help Eichel with the Offensive load. Paryanko replaces Risto Dynamic offensive presence with a more rounded two way presence which would compliment Dahlin. Okposo is a cap dump and while the other 3 pieces are a tough loss Saint Louis debatably gives the two best pieces.

Saint Louis: gets a new presence on the blue line in Risto who is a big upgrade on the PP and 2 good young players who have potential to be very good. Rienhart is already established and could be even better with a change of scenery. Okposo is a solid depth player who can play any role.

13 Dec 2018 04:15:40
Yeah 4 years of 6 million cap dump on a 30 year old. That's a huge no.

You have value in this trade. The 1st eould have to be st. Louis 1st and if okoposo is included you would be adding your first as well.

Crazy cap dump.

13 Dec 2018 05:28:31
Please just say St. Louis. god. And oh my this would never happen haha.

Chicago: anisimov
Washington: 3rd round pick

Chicago: Seabrook (25% Retained)
ottawa: Wolanin or Gagne

Chicago: Crawford + 2020 2nd
Buffalo: Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen.

28 Nov 2018 20:54:26
Washington absolutely cannot afford the Anisimov trade without losing salary.

Ottawa re-building seems like a strange destination to send an aging and deteriorating Seabrook.

Buffalo already has 32 year old Hutton. They may be looking to replace him, but not with Crawford, who would make for very expensive backup, or 1b tandem.

28 Nov 2018 22:22:33
what would you suggest for alternate destinations for anisimov and seabrook then? and i think the buffalo deal is fair, maybe send back hutton for another piece as well?

28 Nov 2018 23:19:57
Think anisimov would be a good fit in Washington, but ya, they only projected have a few hundred thousand dollars at the deadline. Always thought Edmonton would be a good spot Seabrook. But that would probably mean probably 50% retention. he's worth more than 3.5mil now but not when he's 38-39-40, he's already lost a step so its going to be ugly in a few years, never mind 5-6 years.

29 Nov 2018 00:50:39
Hutton and Ullmark are a huge reason for Buffalo success right now. Not a chance they trade one right now.

29 Nov 2018 02:35:47
Seabrook is untradable unless it’s for Lucic.

29 Nov 2018 03:57:24
Anisimov to New Jersey Devils for 3rd round pick; salary Dump and devils have cap room.

29 Nov 2018 04:45:33
Forget the untradable Seabrook for now and consider Duncan Keith while there is a chance to move him.

14 Oct 2018 23:14:17
Time to stir things up. Something original and outside the box.

Leafs sign Nylander 8x$7.5
Leafs sign Gardiner 5x$6.5

Leafs trade Marner, picks/ prospects
Buffalo trades Dahlin

Leafs trade Rielly
St. Louis trades Parayko

Marleau/ Matthews/ Kapanen
Hyman/ Tavares/ Nylander
Lindholm/ Kadri/ Brown
Johnsson/ Gauthier/ (Leivo)

Dahlin/ Parayko
Gardiner/ Zaitsev
Dermott/ Hainsey
(Sandin/ Liljegren)

15 Oct 2018 00:02:55
Unless the picks and prospects going to buffalo are Liljegren Sandin and marner to don’t think buffalo considers this. they need defence more than another small skilled forward.

15 Oct 2018 00:39:58
So easy no from Buffalo.
As for St. Louis trade, interesting because of the weaker left side they have on D and Rielly + Petro could be a nice pairing but I’m going to say no from St. Louis due to command of what Parayko brings.

15 Oct 2018 01:24:38
Id rather keep Rielly, and Buffalo would never do that, they need d more than offense.

15 Oct 2018 01:53:13
Dont like any of it. Especially Gardiner for 5 more years.

15 Oct 2018 04:59:04
I figured one of the prospects would have to be Sandin. Yes. Just was hoping to keep him so when we trade Gardiner in a few years, Sandin would be 3LHD. No way I would be giving them Liljegren too. A 1st maybe and that would be max.

Marner would look good in Buffalo playing with the young guns they got over there. A core of Eichel, Reinhardt, Marner, Middlestadt, Nylander, and Skinner is very attractive.

15 Oct 2018 05:13:24
Yes but having Eichel, Reinhart, Middlestadt, Nylander, Skinner and Dahlin is even more attractive.
Such an easy no from Buffalo, a no, while laughing at Dubas on the phone. But Dubas would never even ask such a trade anyways he's smarter than that.

15 Oct 2018 07:25:38

Drinking again tonight are we? You’re troll game is strong here. Marner for a prospect, no matter how good is a high risk/ high reward trade that Leafs would never make. And that’s why Dubas would never make the call to begin with.

Marner as setup man for Tavares or Matthews could be hitting 80-90 points this year. A long shot to compete for Art Ross Trophy, it still wouldn’t be inconceivable in a few years, as Marner will be a perennial top 10 producer in the league.

Not sure why Buffalo wouldn’t want a player on the team that could set up Eichel or Reinhart for 40+ goals a year like he is doing for Tavares right now in Toronto. Marner would be the best player on the team. Reinhart and Eichel are underperformers and need an elite winger to reach the next level.

15 Oct 2018 11:24:56
Think for Buffalo to consider getting rid of Dahlin you'd have to start with J. T. or Matthews and go from there. franchise player for franchise player?

15 Oct 2018 13:17:50
The only one drinking is the one who suggests Buffalo might trade Dahlin who they JUST drafted 1st overall and is a perfect fit for the team who was weak on D.

15 Oct 2018 14:13:20
Marner most definitely would not be the best player on buffalo also.

15 Oct 2018 19:53:08
@mcjesus, I’m on board with saying buffalo doesn’t make that trade lol they’re keeping Dahlin. But Marner/ Eichel could be a good debate. Eichel has had a cpl injuries, but when healthy has been great (.84 pts per game) . Marner has been healthier, played a season less, and had Stints on the 4th line (.85 pts per game) . Just read a stat today actually from the day he was promoted from the 4th line last season, including the 7 game series vs the bruins and the start of this year, in 53 games he has 28 goals and 42 assists for 70 pts. That’s a torrid pace. Obviously Eichel is that 1C that is going to garner more interest and gets a value advantage, but I don’t think putting them in a conversation together is that crazy.

16 Oct 2018 05:47:38
Are you all insane? Marner would easily be the best player on Buffalo. The Leafs would laugh at this and would never trade Marner or Matthews as they are untouchable as are Reilly and Tavares. As good as Eichel is he in my mind is still a gamble for me at 10 million a season over 8 years as he often gets injured and has not played a full season. As for Dahlin, I am not sold on this player as a franchise player. He may turn into a capable defender, only time will tell.

16 Oct 2018 14:04:47
@NylanderMagic. I’m soldnon Dahlin and he will be far more than a capable defender lol.
