Calgary has been pursuing Duchene everyday.

R.Andersson + O.Kylington + M.Stajan for M.Duchene

Sign Iginla 2m x 1yr


21 Sep 2017 00:44:53
I just read that Ottawa has been persuing Duch every day lately.
And that it might be down to Ottawa or Columbus.
Wait and see!

21 Sep 2017 01:49:25
Don't think Carolina is out yet and may have the best pieces to give.

21 Sep 2017 03:04:33
Ya Ottawa definitely have better to offer for Duchene.

21 Sep 2017 15:40:19
I think sens have the pieces but seem pretty reluctant to part with them. I feel like canes would be a good fit because avs want young D, canes have the most young skilled D in the league and need a center. Seems like a fit.

15 Sep 2017 22:45:51
O.Maatta + 2nd for M.Duchene

Down the middle would look like:


Would be a very good upgrade but leaves a hole on D. My guess is that they should trade for an underachieving Sam Bennett. I feel he would be a monster in the Eastern Conference and could develop better on a team like Pittsburgh. But the price would be fairly high considering Calgary is high on him and his potential is high.

What would you guys think about a Sam Bennett or Duchene trade to Pittsburgh and what would the cost be?

16 Sep 2017 01:14:07
#1 don't see anyone wanting Duchene as 3rd centre. Costs too much to acquire and too big of a salary to be 3rd line

#2 it would take more than maatta and a 2nd rounder to get him

#3 if Bennett was asking for 4-5 mill a season based on what he's proven, flames would look to move him. He just signed 1.9 for the next 2 years and still has lots of potential. They would be fools to move him. At 1.9 they will always be able to move him, but if he breaks out this year, think of what a return would be with another year at 1.9 and still RFA status after that. Not the time to move him.

16 Sep 2017 02:06:13
I could see Duch playing wing in Pitts.
Pitts is intersted in Spooner or Sheahan for third line center. Been talkin. To Detroit and Boston the last few days about them two for third line center.

16 Sep 2017 03:36:00
Not enough for Duchene. got to add another good piece and make that 2nd into a 1st at least. Pens 2nd rounder will be very late (56-62 range)

16 Sep 2017 04:01:55
Matta sucks and is very slow, that 2nd is badically a 3rd. it sould take matta 1st plus.

15 Sep 2017 09:19:36
Colorado Avalanche:
- C Matt Duchene
Calgary Flames:
- C Sam Bennett
- D Rasmus Andersson
- D Brett Kulak

Colorado Avalanche:
- LW Gabriel Landeskog
Carolina Hurricanes:
- D Jaccob Slavin
- RW Elias Lindholm

I think it's very fair and reasonable and Colorado kicks off their rebuild by getting young replacements and much needed young dmen

15 Sep 2017 14:48:53
Way way too much for Landy. He played terrible last year, and i wouldn't trade Slavvin at all. i'd say he's the most untouchable dman on the canes.

15 Sep 2017 18:10:28
1st is bad for COL, 2nd would never happen from CAR pov.

15 Sep 2017 18:43:41
Switch the offers around (ie Landry for Bennett, etc) and it might be more realistic.

15 Sep 2017 18:47:51
Just can't wait for the day that Duchene gets traded so i don't have to read any more trade proposals for him.

15 Sep 2017 22:28:50
Wow Canes get hosed big time lol.

15 Sep 2017 22:41:21
Anybody who trades for Duchene will regret it. If i was Calgary i WOULD NOT give that for him. He is a good player but Sakic is severely overating him.

15 Sep 2017 22:41:06
I like it, and one year doesn't defy a player's performance overall. They still have a ton of trade value but maybe if you switched the offers around. Calgary trading for Landy and Carolina trading for Duchene.

15 Sep 2017 22:47:39
Maybe J.Faulk for M.Duchene & R.Andersson + M.Jankowski + M.Stajan for G.Landeskog ?

14 Sep 2017 11:02:13
Calgary Pittsburgh
Stajan (20% Retained) for 3rd 2018 + Bjorkqvist

Calgary NYR
B. Kulak + M. Klimchuk + 4th 2018 for R. Nash

14 Sep 2017 16:38:41
Too much cap going to Calgary and Pittsburgh is good up the middle

14 Sep 2017 17:53:16
No Pittsburgh isn't good up the middle (bottom six) . Crosby, Malkin, Rowney, McKegg is their current depth chart. They should definetly make a move before the season starts to get a 3C.

14 Sep 2017 18:45:18
I just read that Holland and Rutherford have spoken this week and that Pens are intersted in Wings Sheahan. Pouliot back to the wings is talked about. Maybe some pieces added to either side. But the Wings are $3M over the cap and need to shed still.

15 Sep 2017 18:10:06
Pittsburgh is great top 2 centres and near the bottom of the league bottom 6. Which is why they say it's a priority to get a 3rd center. Have to see how cap would work but I still feel there's a fit there for Tyler bozak. 1 year left at 4.2 mill, great on the draw, decent offence, can play a checking role and penalty kill too, and has a history of playing well with kessel if they wanted to keep the big three on 3 different lines again for added scoring depth.

10 Sep 2017 03:08:47
- Mattias Ekholm
- Calle Jarnkrok
- 3rd

- Matt Duchene

Makes Nashville good up the middle.

- Johansen -
- Duchene -
- Bonino -

Even if they wanted to invest in a cheap young center, they could always pry Sam Bennett outta Calgary for a comparable RW or a small package

10 Sep 2017 15:52:32
No way from Nashville. Have u seen Ekholm's contract! Freakin steal and a half. Plus they can't give him up since Ellis won't be back for 4-6 months.

10 Sep 2017 16:17:54
Lol no. With Ellis out now for a bit they aren't trading Ekholm. Colorado asked a month ago about ekholm and Nashville said no.

10 Sep 2017 18:00:15
Ekholm is under rated. I wouldn't do this from a Nashville side of things.

11 Sep 2017 01:51:14
I agree with all the Eckholm love. Very good, under rated player.

09 Sep 2017 17:54:16
- Alex Galchenyuk
- Rasmus Andersson
- Mark Jankowski
- Troy Brouwer (25% Retained)

- Sam Bennett
- Elias Lindholm

- Adam Fox
- Anthony Duclair

Gaudreau - Monahan - Lindholm
Tkachuk - Backlund - Frolik
Pollock - Galchenyuk - Versteeg
Ferland - Lazar - Duclair

09 Sep 2017 19:55:51
Lol. No from the other teams. Sure your name isn't Flamers11?

09 Sep 2017 20:53:29
Always same Calgary guys with their trade bullshits

Yeah let's say J. Gaudreau for Juulsen + Schlemko + Plekanec and 20bucks.

09 Sep 2017 22:13:25
If u haven't seen Adam Fox's game then u wouldn't understand the Duclair trade. He was signed 1 x 1yr which means I don't think they think very highly of him and the other trade for Galchenyuk is a little lopsided I can see that now

10 Sep 2017 01:31:41
Wow terrible for every team except Calgary.

10 Sep 2017 08:23:47
Leafs fan I'm a Calgary fan and Montreal says no and I wouldn't do the bottom 2.

10 Sep 2017 08:38:47
The Fox deal is actually terrible for CGY but otherwise I agree with HGB.

10 Sep 2017 15:54:56
The Arizona and Carolina trades weren't outrageous, but that Montreal trade was god awful.

11 Sep 2017 01:54:43
No from Montreal on trade 1
No from both on trade 2 but I think Lindholm is the better player at this time and may stay that way but Calgary needs the grit Bennett brings. Big no from Calgary on 3.

09 Sep 2017 17:52:58
Sam Bennett for Elias Lindholm. Fills the needs for both teams.

Then Rasmus Andersson for Anthony Duclair.





10 Sep 2017 01:27:39
Lol certainly does NOT help Carolina. Lindholm > Bennett.

10 Sep 2017 08:24:24
IMO Bennett has more upside and Calgary should hang onto him for one more year.

09 Sep 2017 17:51:44
- Rasmus Andersson
- Anthony Duclair

Very fair deal. Duclair signed at 1 x1yr, could bring his game back alongside Gaudreau and monahan. He would also bring grit like ferland but has more potential and skill. And would solidify the RW depth a little more.


Find a way to trade Stajan & Brouwer.

11 Sep 2017 01:56:49
Calgary can't afford to give up s young puck moving right shot def who is close to cracking the roster.

08 Sep 2017 08:09:06
CGY - Sam Bennett
CAR - Elias Lindholm

08 Sep 2017 16:03:53
Hurricanes probably wouldn't do it. They Should be sending a D prospect for a young forward rather than F for F. Just spinning tires.

09 Sep 2017 03:10:14
At this point Lindholm has more value than Bennett, maybe add a 2nd and a 3rd from Calgary.

09 Sep 2017 03:49:22
Ya that's what i was thinking like Brett Pesce cause of Bennett's potential and age. But I was also looking at Calgary's needs. They need a RW and could surplus defence.

10 Sep 2017 01:29:36
No way Francis does this. Lindholm is twice the player Bennett is at this point. I'd argue Bennetts value is close to an all time low right now, I think he's defs better then what he put up last year, numbers wise, but makes no sense for Carolina. Would be taking a step back, or at best, a lateral move.

06 Sep 2017 23:37:18
COL: Duschene
CGY: Bennett, Valimaki, Anderson or Kylington

07 Sep 2017 14:08:16
Personally I'd rather wait to and give Bennett one more season to prove himself. And if we were giving up that much I'd rather it be for a RW. I don't thinks it's a bad offer though.

07 Sep 2017 15:35:10
Do the Flames really need anothe center though? I mean they already have a solid 1st line center in Monahan and a solid 2nd center in Backlund.

07 Sep 2017 20:39:31
Way too much from the Flames.

08 Sep 2017 05:45:20
That's not enough for duchene.

09 Sep 2017 16:31:21
Duchess is a cancer in the dressing room. No thanks.

05 Sep 2017 23:15:25
-Flames and Bennet and Red Wings and Athanasiou are both far apart with their teams for contract nagotiations. Both reportedly shopping KHL contracts to pressure clubs.

-Cody Franson apperently deciding between Oilers and Blackhawks.

-Jagr could be preparing to stay in the Czech and play for Klando and the Olympics.

-Pasternak and his agent keep using Drias $8.5M as a comparable and demanding more than Boston is offering (believed to be $6M per for 6 years) . This nagotiation is maybe getting ugly.

-Horvat and Canuks could be announcing a signing in the next few days.

06 Sep 2017 02:40:42
Franson would be nice addition oil, upgrade over Gryba for sure.

06 Sep 2017 03:00:36
I think Pasternak at 7.5 would be fair. Draisatl being able to either ride shotgun with mcdavid or center his own line gives him a bit of a premium. But 6 million just wouldn't cut it if I were pasta either. And Franson was a guy i hated to see leave the leafs but we got a first, a prospect and a 5th or something for him so they had to. I would be glad to bring him back on the cheap because our RD is weak. But oilers would be a good fit too.

06 Sep 2017 15:46:51
-Duchane also didn't attend first captains practice yesterday. Landeskog was a little disappointed. But it's looking like Duchane will be traded within the month here.

-Horvats deals looking to be around 5/ 6 years between around $5.5M per.

07 Sep 2017 02:40:03
Duchene was at a wedding, lots of players weren't there.

25 Aug 2017 18:08:27
Boston Bruins- David Pastrnak
Calgary Flames- Rasmus Andersson, Troy Brouwer, Mark Jankowski

Finally get their much needed RW but the price maybe higher than that.

John Gaudreau-Sean Monahan-David Pastrnak
Matthew Tkachuk-Mikael Backlund-Michael Frolik
Spencer Foo-Sam Bennett-Kris Versteeg
Michael Ferland-Matt Stajan-Curtis Lazar

25 Aug 2017 18:25:57
Lol a good prospect in Anderson, a cap dump in Brouwer and a meh prospect in Jankowski? Hell no from Boston, might get Pasta's skates.

25 Aug 2017 23:59:58
No from Boston unless they felt Anderson was going to be a top pair def and that is doubtful.

26 Aug 2017 14:19:47
Lol I love the Flames but no. I'm guessing anything to get Pasternak involves Brodie, Johnny, or Tkachuk.

09 Sep 2017 17:00:22
That is a fair deal. Jankowski has size and skill and will be a good second line center.

21 Aug 2017 22:35:34
nhl trade rumours trade between battle of alberta

edmonton receives Bennett kylington

calgary flames get Nugent hopkins

22 Aug 2017 03:32:47
Maybe if Kylington was a right hand shot and Bennett was more proven. I'll be honest I'm not a huge Bennett fan at all, but I know he's capable of being a good player.
I mean yes from Oilers considering the cap and getting younger players back. But can't see these two teams making a trade of this caliber.

22 Aug 2017 05:22:00
Big risk for Edm buts its fair.

22 Aug 2017 16:24:54
Lol. No from Calgary for obvious reasons. They aren't trading for a $6 million third line center.

23 Aug 2017 04:21:15
Absolutely terrible for CGY. RNH is a 3rd line C that can play a decent 200ft game. CGY already has Backlund who's better in that role and cheaper. Bennett has way more upside as does Kylington. CGY doesn't need another C and RNH is nowhere near worth those 2 pieces.

24 Aug 2017 07:44:10
If RNH is a 3rd line centreman, then what do you consider Bennett? He would be Calgary's #2 hands down. Who do you guys have other than monahan?

29 Aug 2017 00:06:34
@ lightning
They have Backlund as I already stated. Ideally Backs becomes the 3rd line C and Bennett breaks through this year to become the top 6 guy everyone thought he'd be. But for now, Backlund is better than RNH and Bennett has more promise.

05 Aug 2017 09:58:31
1st trade:

Leafs- Tyler Bozak + Kasperi Kapanen
Flames- Sam Bennett + Rasmus Andersson

2nd trade:

Leafs- Jeremy Bracco + Frederik Gauthier
Ducks - Brandon Montour

Sign Jarome Iginla

JVR - Matthews - Nylander
Hyman - Bennett - Marner
Marleau - Kadri - Iginla
Komarov - Moore - Brown

Gardiner - Rielly
Montour - Zaitsev
Andersson - Carrick / Hainsey & Marincin

05 Aug 2017 16:29:56
Both awful for team not called Toronto. Montour has shown he will be a top 4 Dman and could be a high end offensive threat for years to come with his skating. Gauthier has shown in 3 years that he's close to being trusted as the 4th line center for the leafs, but they still felt the need in another 1 year helper in Dominic Moore. Bracco could be a really good player, or another undersized guy that represents your AHL team very well for 10 years. Not the return you need for moving montour.

06 Aug 2017 21:35:30
Wow! The Flames trade is enticing. But, too much cap hit. So the Flames remove Bennett and Rasmus and replace them with Brouwer and Poirier.

07 Aug 2017 04:46:47
Well then Toronto just laughs in your face Borje.

07 Aug 2017 18:08:55
The Montour trade might be the worst trade I've seen in a while. Matthews for Ritchie and Steel? Lol.

08 Aug 2017 15:41:52
Which is what I was doing Yup. I don't think his trade proposal was serious.

05 Aug 2017 09:57:29
Leafs- Tyler Bozak + Kasperi Kapanen
Flames- Sam Bennett + Rasmus Andersson

JVR - Matthews - Nylander
Marleau - Bennett - Marner
Hyman - Kadri - Brown
Komarov - Moore - Martin

29 Jul 2017 15:33:19
mtl- gallagher-mcniven-plekanec33%retain- 1st pick in 2018


29 Jul 2017 16:38:25
Why on earth would mtl do this.

29 Jul 2017 18:52:08
Calgary declines. Although he is not a sure thing, Bennett at 20 oozes potential and is very gritty. The Flames stuck with Bennett.

29 Jul 2017 19:07:16
No thanks. if its a matter of losing Plekanec contract, itll be off the books next season. I think Gallagher ( if healthy) brings more to the table than Bennett does . And also., why would the Flames want Plekanec or McNevin, They don't need Plek and Flames have some pretty good goalie prospects coming up.

02 Aug 2017 03:55:50
I'm not taking it personal, I just saying that I on this sit to meet hockey people, and talk, joke and have fun and laugh that is it, like around the dinner table at christmas, and at this point that is all.

02 Aug 2017 09:08:42
Greg, your probably replying to my post from down below.
I get it. I respect your passion for the game and team. On the post below, we deffinetly don't see things the same, and that's all good. but you sound like a Habs fan, so ya can't be all that bad. Lol.

05 Aug 2017 10:53:15
Wouldn't do this if I'm Calgary.

11 Aug 2017 02:03:41
Beleiveable. I think Calgary is on the fence about Bennetts ceiling;it would be smart to atleast explore interest. I like Gallager for Bennett tho. Porier is not on as promising as years before. Bennett would be good for Mtl might even become their # 1center so there has to be more value coming to Cgy with Gallager.

Gallagher, Hudon, 2nd Rd

Bennett, 5th round pick.

25 Jul 2017 08:27:17
COL: valimaki, poirer, 1st round pick

CAL: duchene

Gaudreau monahan duchene
Tkachuk backlund frolik
Versteeg bennet brouwer
Lazar stajan ferland

Giordano Hamilton
Brodie hamonic
Kulak stone


Good trade?

Calgary could make a run for the cup possibly

25 Jul 2017 13:49:58
Valimaki and a 1st would be needed. But that third piece can't be a a 22 year old winger with 8 NHL games. They wanted a first, a top D prospect (valimaki) and a young NHLer. 8 games over 4 years since being drafted isn't that.

26 Jul 2017 17:12:48
If that's not enough, it explains why duchene hasn't been dealt. He is not worth the desired asking price.

31 Jul 2017 21:12:31
Lol, what first round pick?

18 Jul 2017 15:43:42
COL: Duchene
CGY: Bennett, Valimaki

18 Jul 2017 18:57:08
Colorado would need to take more salary. Brower? Please. Personally I'd like to see Val replaced by Kylington. I've seen them both and like them both but I think Val could be very good and soon.

18 Jul 2017 19:56:03
Two busts and then you want to throw in a cap dump with negative value (Brouwer)? Colorado laughs. Start with Tkuchuk and ++.
Ha ha lol :)
-How's my Borje impression?

18 Jul 2017 20:42:33
Not too bad Yup!

18 Jul 2017 21:57:27
Pretty spot on yup wow.

19 Jul 2017 02:37:12
Just trying my best at sounding like a broken record.
It's funny how the original post is half decent and would get Colorados attention, But he wants to downgrade a player and add a cap dump, Making Colorado laugh and hang up. Lol. Entertaining i suppose.

19 Jul 2017 03:04:38
I don't think u would get tkachuk straight up for duchene.

19 Jul 2017 05:23:22
Don't worry, I was just trolling.

19 Jul 2017 14:14:15
Nuge for
Someone useful plus

How's my Yup/ Mcjesus impression?

19 Jul 2017 15:03:46
I've never posted a Nuge proposal. So you're way off just like all your evaluations. Lol.

18 Jul 2017 01:34:47
To flames: Matt Duchene (50% retained)

To Avalanche: valamaki+kylington+2019 1st

Duchene only has 2 years left on his contract and colarado is in the middle of a rebuild so they can afford to retain. Calgary pays a hefty price but is a legitimate cup contender next season

18 Jul 2017 04:13:10
To much for duch.

18 Jul 2017 20:18:35
So the flames will have given up their 2017 1st, 2018 1st, and 2019 1st all in one off season? Not a chance any sane team does that.

18 Jul 2017 23:47:30
CGY didn't trade the 2017 1st. They used it to draft Jusso Valimaki at 16 OA.

19 Jul 2017 05:25:00
Didn't the Rangers trade their 1st round pick away like three straight years in a row? Pretty sure it was them. One of the years was when they traded for Marty STL.

19 Jul 2017 13:10:30
SC4CGY - if you actually look at the trade proposal you will see Valimaki is included in the trade. Now, I'm no self proclaimed genius, but it doesn't take one to realize trading Valimaki is the exact same as trading their first round pick this year.

They traded their 2018 first for Hamonic, so trading Valimaki (2017 1st) and their 2019 1st is trading three years worth of 1st round picks is it not?

I'll wait to be corrected.

14 Jul 2017 14:39:30
Duschene Trades

COL: Duschene
NYI: Barzal, Pulock, 1st Round Pick 2018 (CGY)

COL: Duschene
CLB: Murray, PLD

COL: Duschene
CAR: Pesce, Fluery, Gauthier

COL: Duschene
NSH: Fabbro, Fiala, 1st Round Pick 2018

14 Jul 2017 15:17:52
All of those are an overpayment for Duchene. He's a good player, but not worth that - at least I wouldn't pay that. Sakic has set the bar too high.

14 Jul 2017 17:05:04
Why can't anyone spell Duchene lol however I think those are all quality offers for him.

14 Jul 2017 17:05:22
But I can't see the other teams giving up that much for him.

14 Jul 2017 17:09:19
The Caroline trade is the biggest joke.
