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.

17 Dec 2018 15:41:42
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)

13 Dec 2018 03:06:41
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.

28 Nov 2018 20:27:49
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.

02 Oct 2018 19:51:14
Buffalo Trades
Moulson (AHL)

Toronto Trades
Timashov (AHL)
4th Round Pick 2019

Thoughts ?

03 Oct 2018 03:55:56
I can’t believe someone actually hit believable. Lol.

Absolutely not. Moulson and his $5M bucks to play AHL on lowly Sabers has no place on Leafs.

I think if Leafs are going to dump The Goat, it would be for a pick. Girgensons would be a depth player for us, and we kinda already have enough of those guys. Ennis in particular looks good.

29 Sep 2018 16:47:05
Buffalo Trades

Toronto Trades

Sabres need a Vet Backup Goaltender and Leivo in Preseason looks like he is ready to play more than 20 games a Season.

Girgensons fills in the need for him and PLindholm to share the 4th Line Centre spot more a position depth move for the Leafs.

Thoughts ?

29 Sep 2018 17:53:16
Sabres will probably grab a goalie on waivers if they need one, but after investing in Hutton and being really high on Ullmark, I assume they split the work load. As for Leivo for Girgensons, neither is going to make a massive impact for the leafs, I’m sure people value Girgensons more because of first round pedigree and his “AllStar” appearance, but I would just stick with Leivo. Been here for a while, been a great teammate and showed loyalty, almost to a fault. I hope he gets his chance this year. Had a great game last night.

01 Oct 2018 03:48:30
At just 24 years of age, Girgensons has 348 games already under his belt. Is he a high producer? No. Is he a reliable fourth liner? Yes. With more experience and points in one season than Leivo has in his entire career, Girgensons really is the better player, and if Leafs could get him by dumping Leivo on Buffalo, I say go for it.

07 Sep 2018 17:56:26
Training Camp is right around the corner some rfa's still available.
Here's a deal towards the end of pre-season. If Reinhart hasn't signed with Buffalo

Van: sends Goldobin and Gaunce and one goalie likely Nilsson and a conditional pick

Buf: send Reinhart and Ullman

Buf upgrade in net, add a possible top six forward and add size to bottom six.

Van: Can afford to pay Reinhart 4 or 5 million a year.

07 Sep 2018 18:13:36
If Reinhart only wants $4 mill, he would be signed in buffalo first off. Secondly, sabres are really high on Ulmark. He wouldn’t be a throw in. They left William Carrier exposed which they didn’t have to, and added a draft pick to Vegas just for McPhee’s word that he wouldn’t select Ullmark in the expansion draft. If you think they will now, a year later, add him to the best player in the deal to get an average at best goalie, a decent prospect, and a bottom 6 forward you’re wrong. Lol.

07 Sep 2018 18:19:14
Lol can Buffalo not afford 4-5 mil a year and I’m just going to say no from Buffalo.

07 Sep 2018 18:52:11
I think ya need more than that for Reinhart.

07 Sep 2018 20:21:15
There just isn’t a deal to be made between these 2 teams.

07 Sep 2018 20:34:58
Also Nilsson had a 3.44 GAA and .901 sv% in 27 games. I understand the Canucks weren’t a good team in front of him, but he is far from a proven upgrade on anyone’s goaltending. Also I’m sure buffalo is watching the leafs closely as they would have first grab at Sparks/ Pickard on waivers who both have as much potential as Nilsson without giving up Ullmark and Reinhart.

07 Sep 2018 23:10:51
Lol easy pass from Buffalo.

15 Aug 2018 19:03:48
The Flyers should move Simmonds now because they will be facing a cap crunch when they need to sign their upcoming RFAs (Provorov, Konecny, Sanheim, Patrick) and can't give Simmonds the term and AAV he'll demand. Buffalo needs a character guy in the locker room to help change the culture and have the cap space in the short and medium term to sign him.

I've modelled it off the Schenn trade and adjusted for contracts, player value etc.

Philadelphia: Conditional SJ 1st 2019 (Kane trade), Conditional 2019 STL 1st (O'Reilly trade), Sobotka ($3.5MM UFA 2020) (borderline cap dump)

Buffalo: Simmonds ($3.975MM UFA 2018), Morin ($700k RFA 2021) NHL ready but injured until February (for the blue line long term)

Both should be firsts in the late teens or 20s.

15 Aug 2018 20:52:08
Seems like an overpayment from buffalo. He'll be an unrestricted free agent next year so his value decreases slightly due to the latter.

15 Aug 2018 23:17:28
What exactly are the conditions on the picks.

Values not bad for the beginning of the year.

15 Aug 2018 23:57:54
I would peg Simmonds as fetching a late first and a B prospect so I added Sobotka and Morin to balance things out. Buffalo has short and medium term cap space to resign Simmonds. I think Simmonds may want to commit to Buffalo if they give him AAV and term, he can play on an up and coming team with Eichel and Dahlin, and is close to Toronto. It also seems Buffalo is willing to part with futures for current talent to become relevant again and have a shot at the playoffs.

16 Aug 2018 18:14:15
2 1sts for rental? Big overpayment. + buffalos 1st will most likely be bottom 5. They lost there best 2 way forward and winger but replaced Kane with Skinner and you can’t count on a 18 year old dman to carry a team.

16 Aug 2018 18:37:02
He doesn't have buffalos 1st in this trade if you look they are both from other teams they also aren't just getting simmonds. Unless your thinking that morin is equal to sobotka.

16 Aug 2018 20:17:13
Yeah, it’s not Sabres own 1st rounder. But still it is apparently based on the Brayden Schenn trade but the blues got a 25 year old Schenn at $5 mill for 3 more years. This is one year and Simmonds, who is turning 30 in a week. He’s great at what he does, but I don’t see the 2 players as that comparable, or their current situations, so I wouldn’t assume that similar of a return. That’s just me though lol.

16 Aug 2018 21:59:13
Ohh okay my apologies but with that being said at the deadline I could see him maybe getting a 1st or a 2nd + a prospect like Liespic he had a weak season last year similar to Patches.

10 Aug 2018 02:32:09
Ottawa trades: Stone, Smith

Buffalo trades: Nylander, beaulieu, Girgensons, 1st round pick 2019, 2nd round pick 2020

10 Aug 2018 04:21:58
Literally doesn’t make Toronto any better unless Nylander is going to be demanding a higher cap than stone has currently. Imo.

10 Aug 2018 04:27:05
Doesn't involve Toronto bruh.

10 Aug 2018 05:51:11
Stone would look awfully nice beside Eichel.

10 Aug 2018 06:20:37
McJesus if your going to critique why don't you actually read the trade lol nice one bud.

10 Aug 2018 13:49:08
1 our of 3 names could have been confused with Toronto lol.

10 Aug 2018 16:13:43
Lol but jim you have to agree it really doesn't make toronto any better.

10 Aug 2018 18:34:37
He’s right lol we don’t get better what so ever. And we don’t get worse. Does that make it an even trade?!

10 Aug 2018 19:08:00
I’m confused why don’t you guys think he’d be good with Eichel? Do you not think he’s good enough because he definitely is.

10 Aug 2018 19:45:43
Hahahahahahaha oops.

10 Aug 2018 19:46:45
Like it’s true tho it doesn’t make Toronto any better bud lmao 😂.

10 Aug 2018 20:31:45
Didnt know girgenson and beaulieu play for the leafs lolol. You guys are amazing.

03 Aug 2018 14:51:27
Buffalo Sabres Lineup:

Jeff Skinner - Jack Eichel - Sam Reinhart
Connor Sheary - Casey Mittelstadt - Kyle Okposo
Alexander Nylander/ Scott Wilson - Patrick Berglund - Evan Rodrigues
Vladimir Sobotka - Zemgus Girgensons - Tage Thompson
**Danny O’Regan, CJ Smith

Rasmus Dahlin - Rasmus Ristolainen
Marco Scandella - Lawrence Pilut
Nathan Beaulieu - Jake McCabe
*Matt Hunwick

Trade Bait: Jason Pominville, Johan Larsson, Zach Bogosian, Casey Nelson, Nic Baptiste, Matt Moulson.

I think that BUF should package all of these pieces together (or a majority of them) to alleviate cap and allow these players to have places to play.

(RW) Jason Pominville + (LW) Johan Larsson + (D) Zach Bogosian + (LW) Nic Baptiste to the Vegas Golden Knights in exchange for (D) Jon Merrill + (RW/ IR) David Clarkson + (G) Oscar Dansk + 2020 2nd Round Pick + 2019 3rd Round Pick.

Pominville >> Clarkson (Even though Clarkson counts towards IR)
Bogosian > Merrill (Main idea here is to get rid of Bogosians Contract, despite Bogo being better)
Larsson/ Baptiste.

Lines aren’t bad really don’t think Dahlin will start to year on the 1st pair that’d be a huge mistake he’s 18 and not ready for top pairing minutes and I feel like Tage Thompson will be a little bit higher in the lineup.

03 Aug 2018 21:59:33
You’re right vbb, you know the disagrees are just Habby lol you could say Montreal is in the province of Quebec and he’s going to disagree with you. His time of the month.

But yeah a lot for buffalo this year depends on goaltending obviously. I like ROR and thought they would be worse without him but after seeing how much they got for him and how little they just gave up for skinner, I’m impressed. Going to be a lot more competitive than I expected, that’s for sure. If Hutton is as good this year as he’s shown in spurts last year, they should might battle for a wild card, or atleast play some meaningful games after February.

03 Aug 2018 22:35:41
Yeah I agree but I’m not very confident that Huton can effectively handle the workload as a starter but time will tell I think in a few years they’ll start to become a top team as Dahlen and their future draft picks develope.

03 Aug 2018 22:38:54
I only disagree to your post jim. I'd appreciate if you stopped the name drops lol. If you got to use my name in your posts to make them better then really what does that say about you lol. i actually agree with vbbb here which is somewhat rare lately.

04 Aug 2018 15:00:22
Hard to say where they put dahlin. Probably depends on preseason if it's first or second pair. Some players thrive on being thrown into the deep end.

05 Aug 2018 05:09:53
Habby, you click disagree on mine 5 times and agree on yours 5 times lol who’s the one that needs help? Again, I don’t relate my self worth to this, have a full life outside. Keep livin the dream kid.

05 Aug 2018 05:16:35
Jim what makes you think I do that. are you so sure your right all the time that other people can't hit the disagree button on your post. So it must be me cause heaven forbid someone else disagree with you. and I ain't no kid big boy I've seen my team win a few cups and on it was on a colour tv too.

06 Aug 2018 20:40:28
Because you’re the only response after most of mine with all the unbelievables, and as pkane pointed out on the last page, after you and I argued, there’s even unbelievables on the confirmed trade i posted lol has you written all over it.

I’ve told you this before, I don’t measure my self worth in your responses. You need to click believable on your own and unbelievable on people you don’t like to make yourself feel superior. Nothing I can do to stop you, and I wouldn’t anyway. You clearly need that in your life. Mines real good man.

06 Aug 2018 21:43:25
So like my reply above this one which had 0 disagrees the last 2 days and 10 minutes after you came back on here today mysteriously had 3 . hmmmmmmm what do you think went on there jim?

06 Aug 2018 21:44:49
The level of your paranoia is getting close to the level of your bias. We'll not really but you know what I mean.

07 Aug 2018 00:01:01
I click agree or disagree once lol I haven’t done more than one.

07 Aug 2018 05:45:46
Yeah ok jim. Cause you said it then it must be fact lol.

07 Aug 2018 12:45:40
Okay. Sabres didn't trade for Jeff skinner. I made that up lol.

07 Aug 2018 15:25:06
I didn't click disagree on that. I had posted the same trade before you why would I disagree. Stop playing the victim man.

02 Aug 2018 23:55:48
Confirmed Trade

Buffalo gets Jeff Skinner

Canes get Cliff Pu, 2nd, 3rd And 6th

Like this deal a lot for sabres. No top prospect or 1st rounder involved and add a guy who is only 25 and had 37 goals 2 years ago, 79 in last 3 seasons. Staying healthy will obviously be the key.

03 Aug 2018 04:57:07
Makes me wonder why Edmonton wouldn’t have tried really hard to make this work (maybe they did) I know cap space is an issue but at that price I’m shocked. That’s probably an equivilent of benson, 2nd, 3rd ans 6th. And that was trading within the conference. Being out west, certainly wouldn't cost more, maybe even a bit less. Don’t know their exact cap situation but for a chance to add skinner so cheap, could they not have given another asset to dump a salary, either to Carolina in this deal or elsewhere to make room?!

03 Aug 2018 04:59:30
Yup. Nice move by Buffalo. If he can stay away from concussions, this should work out great for Buffalo.

03 Aug 2018 14:36:50
Ya the oilers have about $5M in space right now and have to sign Nurse with that. No room at all I make a deal with no money going out for Skinner. Good suggestion tho lol.

03 Aug 2018 16:20:21
Yeah. I was just wondering if there was a way to send like Sekera back there (lived there a long time, might have connections there still) along with another asset in the deal. Because even another pick added into it doesn’t seem like a ton. I just think skinner would be a great fit for mcdavid, can score and is one of the best skaters in the league. I had a trade proposal a while ago of Ethan Bear and their 1st for him (before it was a 10th overal)

04 Aug 2018 00:08:04
I would have earlier asked Sekera is he would waive his no trade to go back to Carolina. And hen try to do something around Sekera/ Puljujarvi for Faulk/ Skinner. And extend Skinner after the season
But that was before we resigned some players and what not. Now it wouldn't have worked out.

04 Aug 2018 19:54:06
i will never understand why people put unbelievable for confirmed trades.
