18 Feb 2018 02:55:02
Um easy no from Ottawa lol.

18 Feb 2018 04:35:13
I don’t think calgary has that much cap space lol.

17 Feb 2018 22:52:58
Flames stajan fist rd pick

Canucks sutter hutton

18 Feb 2018 04:35:53
Easy no from Calgary.

16 Feb 2018 18:03:54
To PHX: Jon Gilles and Rasmus Andersson

To CGY: Max Domi and 2018 2nd rounder (Minnesota)

Coyotes get a much needed goalie and defensive prospect and Flames recoup a pick and take a chance on a gritty scoring LW

To MTL: Sam Bennett

To CGY: Andrew Shaw and a 5th round pick

Habs get a young centreman with upside and Flames get a RW with playoff experience

Flames new 3rd line:

Domi - Jankowski- Shaw

16 Feb 2018 21:56:55
Montreal would jump on that trade in a second.

16 Feb 2018 22:08:23
Oh lord huge no from Calgary on the second trade.
As for the first trade tho I think Arizona says no especially if they are adding a 2nd.

16 Feb 2018 22:08:33
But first is interesting!

17 Feb 2018 06:29:12
On the second trade, what if Montreal change the pick to their 2nd rounder?

17 Feb 2018 08:58:43
Like McJesus said definately no from Calgary in the second one but the first is interesting. I could see ARZ being interested in Gilles and Andersson but I think Calgary would need to give up a bit more.

17 Feb 2018 09:48:16
second trade is an no from calgary. but the first one is a starting point.

17 Feb 2018 18:36:47
Shaw is 26 and will be a cap charge of 3.9 for four more years (4,2.25,2.75,1.9) 10.9 in actual dollars. I don't think its a terrible contract, but the four years attached to him is concerning for other teams forsure. If the habs could retain some of his salary it might give him some value tho.

16 Feb 2018 06:51:52
To PHX: Jon Gilles and Rasmus Andersson

To CGY: Max Domi and 2nd rounder (Minnesota)

Coyotes gain a much needed goalie prospect and a shutdown D Man. Flames recover a pick and take a chance on a scoring winger.

Followed by:

To CGY: Andrew Shaw and MTLs 5th rounder

To MTL: Sam Bennett

Habs get a young Centreman with upside. Flames get a gritty RW who can score

New Flames 3rd line

Domi - Jankowski - Shaw

17 Feb 2018 09:49:28
first one a starting point. second is a hell no from calgary.

15 Feb 2018 17:54:01
LA fires the first shot in the California trade war..

Ducks Pacoretti

Habs Nick Ritchie, Sam Steele, 2018 2nd

Sharks Nash

NYR Hertl, 2018 1st, 2018 4th.

And to keep pace in the arms race....

Dallas Hoffman

Ottawa 2018 1st, Faksa, Vala

Florida 2018 3rd 2019 4th

Calgary Vrbada

15 Feb 2018 19:32:50
Seems like a lot for Nash.

15 Feb 2018 19:55:20
Lol nash ainy getting that return.

15 Feb 2018 20:29:03
Yes it is, but I think there will be a bidding war for his services pushing up the usual price tag for a UFA rental.

15 Feb 2018 20:37:22
No shot Steele is involved in the deal for ANA. He is their future down the middle.

15 Feb 2018 22:43:54
Wouldn’t hold my breath for that kinda return if I was a Habs fan. I personally think they’d be lucky to get steel straight up for Pacioretty IF ducks even had interest in him. Not s chance ducks give both steel and Richie AND a second. not a chance. GM would be unemployed if he made that trade.

15 Feb 2018 23:11:14
Seems like big overpayments for all the guys. I don't think Flames need Vrbata.

14 Feb 2018 23:04:18
The Calgary Flames send Sam Bennett to the Arizona Coyotes in exchange for Max Domi.

The Calgary Flames send Rasmus Andersson, Dillon Dube & 2nd Round Pick to the Buffalo Sabres in exchange for Sam Reinhart.

The Calgary Flames send Curtis Lazar & Matt Stajan to the Pittsburgh Penguins in exchange for Carl Hagelin

J Gaudreau - S Monahan - M Ferland
M Tkachuk - M Backlund - M Frolik
M Domi - M Jankowski - S Reinhart
C Hagelin - R Lomberg - G Hathaway / T Brouwer

14 Feb 2018 23:18:45
I think 1 and 3 are good. but 2nd proposal is giving up a lot of people for one player.

14 Feb 2018 23:45:23
#1 isn’t terrible but I think arizona banks on domis potential over Bennett’s at this point.

#2 I think flames are paying a steep price, but if they really believe Reinhart can turn it around, I guess could be alright.

#3 makes Pittsburgh worse going into the playoffs. Not something Rutherford would do at all. He’s always a guy to tweak and add. Not take a disappointing prospect and a depth veteran for a key part of their team (even if he’s a bit over paid)

14 Feb 2018 23:49:50
#1 . Maybe. Pizza man has some kind of pull with Arizona.
Value is probably close

#2 Sorry, No 2nd round pick for Calgary. That is property of the New York Islanders, so #2 is impossible.

#3 Laughable. Calgary's turn to try to get something useful
for Lazar. Ottawa fans can probably feel the pain

15 Feb 2018 00:26:04
No from Arizona
Big no from Calgary
3rd is interesting, potentially from Pitt but idk.

15 Feb 2018 15:18:57
#1 - i think ARI would want more
#2 - meh, not bad but don't know if BUF would really want all those pieces.
#3 - nope, your stuck with Stajan.

14 Feb 2018 10:39:11

Deadline Plans: Dump Brouwer + Prospect/Pick, Matt Stajan (Retained) to Contender.

14 Feb 2018 11:11:37
First of all you don't acquire F
Hoffman to play third line. Second of all that return won't come clost to get him. Anderson I imagine Ottawa would want. But the pick has to be a first imo. Third of all Bennett is a bust while Reinhart is not even tho some players picked behind him have putstated him. Still worth a 3 times more the Benett who let's admit really sucks. Overall terrible post.

14 Feb 2018 11:22:27
No from BUF and OTT.

14 Feb 2018 16:24:37
Trade 1 is close, think a little more from Calgary is needed though to make this one a go.

2nd trade is not even in the ballpark to get Hoffman's services.

14 Feb 2018 23:00:37
Are we quick to write off a 21 year old. Bennett is not a bust yet.

15 Feb 2018 05:24:16
@DonCherry. I always think the same thing. Ppl on here call any first round pick that isn’t scoring 20goals by 20 years old a bust. Unless of course they play for their own favourite team, then they’re trying to trade 23 year olds, calling them ‘practically a 1st rounder’ because he was picked 15th 5 drafts ago haha

I wouldn’t say Bennett is for sure a bust yet, but I would think he has shown a little more than Reinhart that his ceiling may be lower offensively than originally expected, so I would want an add for sure if I’m buffalo.

Bennett to me kind of reminds me of Kadri. He was a top pick, expected to be an offensive star and had tons of skill and a bit of a mean streak at times. but was also at times nearly written off in Toronto. Rather than a change of scenery, he got a fresh voice in Babcock who convinced him to change his game but it took till he was 25. Now he’s playing the best defensively he’s ever played and ironically putting up great offensive numbers too. Bennett has lots of time to become a really good NHLer, just needs patience and the right voices.

11 Feb 2018 14:01:44
CGY - 3rd Round Pick + Curtis Lazar
NYR - Michael Grabner

CGY - Troy Brouwer + Oliver Kylington + 4th Round Pick
OTT - Bobby Ryan

J Gaudreau - S Monahan - M Ferland
M Tkachuk - M Backlund - M Frolik
S Bennett - M Jankowski - B Ryan
G Hathaway - M Stajan - M Grabner

11 Feb 2018 01:01:11
TORONTO receives: Valimaki, Bennett

CALGARY receives: Marner

11 Feb 2018 03:11:31
Start with Tkachuk. add from there
There’s no avoiding it.

11 Feb 2018 03:53:48
The only imaginable way Marner is headed to Calgary is in a deal involving Dougie Hamilton. So basically it’s not happening.

11 Feb 2018 06:31:09
Not enough for Marner and btw you don’t add to Tkachuk for Marner, they’re very equal.

11 Feb 2018 14:56:27
Yeah I would take tkachuk for marner straight up. He just does so much more than Mitch but may not have to same ceiling in pts. But I think he could help you win in other ways that marner never will. Can’t go wrong with either of them.

11 Feb 2018 15:49:50
I agree that package likely wouldn’t get Marner but the 2 other replies are worse. Seriously, Hamilton, a 6’4” excellent skating D with a great offensive game and now so much better with his D game as well for a smaller guy with 12 goals. yea that’s a good idea. Pfft. And Tkachuk does so much more and also has great potential to put up more points. Leafs would have to add there for sure.

09 Feb 2018 19:29:36
Ottawa- dion phaneuf, nick paul
Calgary- troy brouwer.

09 Feb 2018 22:08:43
Don’t think nick Paul is the type of prospect teams will be Looking for to dump phaneuf a contract and don’t think flames want anymore money on that blue line.

09 Feb 2018 19:28:41
Ottawa- bobby ryan, nick paul
Calgary- troy brouwer, matt stajan, hunter shinkaruk, 2nd.

11 Feb 2018 14:06:41
Take out stajan and Brower and add a 3rd for 3 years and it's a deal but that 2nd is not possible either as they don't have it unless you mean next year's 2nd in which case I say 2 3rds instead of 3.

09 Feb 2018 18:32:34
To cgy: donskoi
To sj: troy brouwer, hunter shinkaruk

09 Feb 2018 18:43:04
who wants troy brouwer and that bad contract.

09 Feb 2018 18:44:38
You probably have better luck trying to give some one a STD than him and that contract. 3 goals 12 assist.

09 Feb 2018 19:06:54
Not to mention Donskoi is actually a good player.

09 Feb 2018 20:05:31
Donskoi is actually good haha why would San Jose want to do that.

06 Feb 2018 23:23:24
CGY - Sam Bennett
ARI - Max Domi

CGY - Rasmus Andersson + Glenn Gawdin
BUF - Sam Reinhart

Gaudreau - Monahan - Ferland
Tkachuk - Backlund - Frolik
Domi - Jankowski - Reinhart
Hathaway - Stajan - Brouwer

07 Feb 2018 01:15:52
The second is so bad.

06 Feb 2018 19:45:12
Montreal and Calgary

Flames receive Alex galchenyuk
Habs receive janko and kylington

06 Feb 2018 20:16:13
I would keep Jankowski myself. Wouldn't trade him for Galchenyuk and his $4.9M for two more years alone. That's a terrible contract. I'm a big fan of Jankowksi and he's seems like a very good third line center for the Flames for years to come, They are definitely hoping for that anyways. Zero want for Galchenyuk and that contract.

06 Feb 2018 20:44:11
Galchenyuk is a 50 point player making less than 5 million with a short term. Not a bad contract and a no from Montreal IMO.

06 Feb 2018 21:13:42
He has had one 50+ season in 5 years.
31P in 53GP this season so far.
I wouldn't call him a 50 point guy. He has the potential, but hasn't consistsantly done it to be called one.

06 Feb 2018 21:20:52
Yup it is obvious that you hate habs
Galchenyuk will one day score 60pts
For a top 6 D and top 9 fowarD
This is a no for obvous reason by Mtl.

06 Feb 2018 22:34:36
This is a no from Calgary, it solves none of their needs. Gal is a lw/ c we have loads of both currently, and he would be a 3rd liner here in either position. On top of that he is overpaid for his production.

Janko is doing great as a rookie playing c, and kylington has loads of potential, neither would I want to give up for another left shot wing/ center.

06 Feb 2018 22:46:51
If the habs were really interested in trading galchenyuk this wouldn't be too bad of an offer I guess.

06 Feb 2018 23:00:35
That price seems higher for Galchenyuk. Maybe switch Bennett or Jankowski?

06 Feb 2018 23:27:02
Lol? What? I did not deny that your he has that potential. But I don't think Calgary would be interested in giving up Jankowski for that potential.
I don't hate or love the Habs. I'm just stating a fact. You can't call a guy a 50 point guy when he has done it once in five (maybe six) seasons. If he does it repeadetly, of course you can. But he does have that potential, of course. So call it what it is, a potential 60 point guy.
That's not hating, that's just being real.

05 Feb 2018 23:42:58
Canucks hutton vanek

Flames jusso valimaki

06 Feb 2018 00:56:02
gaudreau monahan ferland
tkachuk backlund vanek
Bennet jankowski frolik
giordano hamilton
Brodie harmonic
Hutton stone.

06 Feb 2018 01:01:11
Please stop, Calgary is never trading Valimaki for a mediocre rental.

06 Feb 2018 13:13:46
Agree Xcing do u think they would consider trading him for a very good rental like Patches? because I really think Valimaki would be a good addition in mtl prospect pool, would help heal the pain of seing Sergacheb dominate in Tampa lol.

06 Feb 2018 14:12:15
I could see them moving him for someone like Pacioretty because he is younger, better and has more term.

06 Feb 2018 18:22:23
Calgary doesn't need patches. they are stacked on the left.

05 Feb 2018 16:03:28
CGY - Rasmus Andersson + 3rd
VAN - Tomas Vanek

CGY - Sam Bennett + Michael Stone + 2nd + Adam Fox
BUF - Evander Kane + S Reinhart

Gaudreau - Monahan - Vanek
Tkachuk - Backlund - Frolik
Kane - Jankowski - Reinhart
Ferland - Stajan - Hathaway / Brouwer

Giordano - Hamilton
Brodie - Hamonic
Kulak - Bartkowski

05 Feb 2018 16:39:37
Honestly don’t know why flames make first deal. And easy no from Buffalo.

06 Feb 2018 07:59:16
Calgary isn't going to Over pay for "Meh" Rentals. Both these ideas Make the Flame Worse both in the Now and for the future! . Not Better! Yikes!
Both Van and Buffalo would jump at the chance!

04 Feb 2018 06:27:01
Cgy - Bennett, Brouwer
Stl - Kyrou, 2nd

04 Feb 2018 07:39:13
Yeah pretty sure blues fans had their fill of brouwer. He sucks bad. awful trade.

04 Feb 2018 16:00:40
STL laughs.

04 Feb 2018 00:32:47
I have some trade idea and would like hear your thoughts.

Trade #1
Montreal trade
Calgary trade
Bennett and 2018 1st

Trade #2
NYI trade
Tampa Bay trade
Foote, Johnson, 2018 1st and 2nd

Trade #3
Buffalo Trade
Vancouver trade
Virtanen and 2nd in 2018

Trade #4
Toronto trade
Jvr 2nd in 2018
2018 1st, Roy and Fluery.

04 Feb 2018 02:44:53
If islanders didn’t think they’d be able to re sign taveres I think that package wouldn’t be too far off, but it doesn’t sound like they are going to trade him I don’t see the need for Vancouver to trade away a youngish asset for Kane if they aren’t making the playoffs, they could have him for nothing in free agency. Think that’s a overpayment from Carolina for JVR, he’s a pending free agent said that’s a lot to give up for a rental if they don’t make the playoffs. I guess if they really think they can make it and make it past the first round then maybe, but they’re clearly not contenders so if anything they’d want their young guys to get playoff experience like the leafs last year. Also if they’re going to trade away that package I’d think they’d want a centerman coming back.

04 Feb 2018 03:03:46
Vancouver is so far out why would they trade for a UFA rental? They would just try to sign E. Kane in the off season without giving an assets away for nothing.

I don't see Carolina giving up their 1st for that. They are just outside and I just don't see them trading their first for a rental with new ownership, I think they keep the pick and try to get better for years to come not right now. JVR isn't the difference in them making a deep run or not they just aren't that good of a team right now.

03 Feb 2018 10:58:00
Flames trade


03 Feb 2018 13:23:12
In what world is that remotely clost from Buff perspective. Please not that a trade has to be relevant for both teams.

03 Feb 2018 14:21:47
Maybe value is close but that is a definate no from Calgary because Kane is an expiring contract and they don’t know if he’ll resign and Reinhart is a massive gamble. Backlund is a great defensive forward and can put up points, exactly what the flames need, I doubt they trade him for less and an amazing package.

04 Feb 2018 09:29:08
Backlund is an expiring contract too, my thought being Backlund is the best in the offer, but if neither player where to resign rehinhart is calgarys gaurenttee to have a good player.

01 Feb 2018 20:14:42
CGY: Bennett, Brouwer, 2019 1st round pick

PHI: Simmonds

01 Feb 2018 21:14:25
If I’m philly I’d like a better package than that.

01 Feb 2018 21:41:12
Simmonds would be a great pick up for Calgary. I actually think it may take a little more than that to get him though.

01 Feb 2018 21:51:23
C'mon dude. As a Philly fan, I think Simmonds can get more.
