20 Sep 2017 02:40:02
Duchene for J. Bean, H. Fleury, 2nd

Carolina gets a #1 center They already have hanifin and Slavin on the left side

AVS get 2 defensive pieces that will be ready this year or the next


20 Sep 2017 11:46:09
Probably has to be a first but yeah I'd do it from an Avs perspective. Who knows if Sakic will take it tho.

20 Sep 2017 15:15:00
Probably the best sakic is going to get on this now. I think he has really dropped the ball here. It's not good for the team, management, fans or Duchene to drag it out. Unless Duchene puts up the best season of his career (Don't see that happening with how discouraged that team seems) and they cash in on him at the deadline, this is a loss for sakic.

20 Sep 2017 20:18:57
I think it is a good deal for both teams here. Peters has a good relationship with Duchesne too.

20 Sep 2017 23:38:14
Avs would want at least a 1st.

16 Sep 2017 18:22:45

LAK: Lee Stempniak

CAR: Jordan Nolan, conditional 2019 3rd and 2018 4th round pick

*Condition if Stempniak puts up 40 points and Kings make playoffs pick is 2nd.

I just noticed Carolina's depth chart and they have Stempniak penciled on the 4th line because of their insane wing depth so they could spare Stempniak and use the picks for a player that won't do much for them.
Kings get a solid wing player who can score decently which we desperately need.

16 Sep 2017 23:24:22
Seems fair to me, and makes sense for both teams imo. Stempniak could be a middle 6 F in LA, Nolan provides some good grit and toughness for a young Canes team. good post.

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 ?

13 Sep 2017 18:59:14
Three way trade:

CAR to WPG: Hannifin
WPG to BOS: Trouba
BOS to CAR: Pasternak


13 Sep 2017 19:52:49
I like this trade alot

13 Sep 2017 21:21:22
Pastrnak > Trouba > Hanifin

Canes easily win this trade IMO.

13 Sep 2017 21:21:50
Pasternak > Hannifin > Trouba
So I think Boston loses this but picks can fix that. Even though this trade helps everybody it seems unlikely Hanifin gets traded as well.

13 Sep 2017 22:09:29
I like the effort but this is not enough for Boston.

13 Sep 2017 22:14:44
Good base. Maybe just a deal between Bos and Car, because B's already have McAvoy and Carlo as their 2 top4 RHD. Hanifin + 2nd rd pick for Pastrnak or something like this idk.

13 Sep 2017 22:32:14
Good thought, good needs but in my opinion pasternak and hanifin are close, but both more than Trouba.

14 Sep 2017 03:35:36
Seems like an excellent start. Boston needs a bit more though.

14 Sep 2017 06:16:15
I believe the thinking is sound as is the value but it can never happen. its hard enough to find one GM who has the balls to pull off that deal, let alone three!

14 Sep 2017 11:04:30
Add a few small adds for a couple of the teams such as picks/ prospects and it's a good trade IMO however a trade of this calibre between 3 teams is unlikely.

14 Sep 2017 11:05:20
Possibly make small adds to Winnipeg and Carolina, with boston being on the receiving end of the adds.? Good post!

14 Sep 2017 18:48:37
Trouba is not worth less than Hanifin and is entering his prime at the same time the team is stepping up. Jets won't let him go unless they are forced to for contract reasons, and if they do the ideal trade is for someone a little further along in development than Hanifin.
That said they Chevy has made deals with Carolina in the past.

15 Sep 2017 15:56:44
When I said hanifin over trouba I didn't mean he's already a better player. I meant value around the league could be higher due to the fact he's younger, cheaper, was drafted higher and some believe has a higher ceiling when it's all over and also hasn't had any bad press or negativity around his character. And I'm not saying trouba was wrong or a bad guy, we don't know the real story. Just saying players can get a reputation, whether fair or not, that can follow them and affect their trade value.

12 Sep 2017 12:14:36

MTL might need to add more because idk if Carolina wants to give up Hannifin

12 Sep 2017 14:06:47
I think habs add. If hurricanes make it known around the league that hanifin is available, they would get better, so habs would need to add to keep the deal between them.

12 Sep 2017 14:51:25
Ya not a chance Carolina does this straight up.

12 Sep 2017 15:26:14
Id be be kinda torn on this. on one hand, Habs get a good young potential stud Dman. that they desperately need. on the other, Galchenyuk has always givin me the what can he be feeling. I feel there is so much more to his game, and he could and should be a 80 pt player. however that hasn't been the case.
I do agree Habs would have to add. jus depends how valuable the addition is.

12 Sep 2017 18:32:18
value wise, hell no from Carolina.

However, Montreal is already s*** at center, so why would they wanna add another dman to a plethora of them?

10 Sep 2017 03:04:25
- James Van Riemsdyk
- Kasperi Kapanen
- Brett Pesce
- Elias Lindholm


- James Van Riemsdyk
- Ryan Murray

10 Sep 2017 08:23:32
The jackets need a center not a wing.

10 Sep 2017 08:37:47
Very easy no from CAR.

10 Sep 2017 15:53:18
NO from both teams they need centres not more wings :p.

10 Sep 2017 17:35:53
Pesce>JVR, Lindholm>Kapanen. No way from Carolina.

Id rather have a young dman than a pending ufa in JVR honestly. SO no from jackets.

10 Sep 2017 18:31:48
Canes get hosed big time.

11 Sep 2017 01:51:50
I can't see Pesce going anywhere.

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.

22 Aug 2017 20:44:59
Oilers- nugent-Hopkins+ Nurse
Carolina- Faulk+ maybe a 3rd

The oilers are going to have to resign nurse this year and I heard he wants 3 million plus, which with oilers cap crunch would be tough. Plus the oilers have a ton of left handed d prospects to take his place. For Carolina they get a 2nd line center and a prospect with tons of potential to add to their already stacked blue line.

22 Aug 2017 22:51:16
Oilers say no. They will be able to resign him, no worries.
I would have maybe been intersted in a trade like this for Faulk before they resigned Russell for so long.
They will be running with what they got for 2/ 3 years now until they teade Russell or Sekera waives his no trade. But then Bear will likely be ready by that time to step in.
They will be able to trade Nuge without having to add in Nurse.

23 Aug 2017 00:03:43
Although faulk could be the top RHD edmonton is missing, I can't imagine the oil fans taking like to any trade involving nurse. also, with slavin, pesce, hanifin in the line up and 2 other solid D prospects in fleury and bean, is nurse even a player the hurricanes would covet?

23 Aug 2017 00:09:33
Nurse is just a prospect?
No from Oilers. Only good thing of this is saving cap and getting a RHD.
Don't get me wrong I'm a huge fan of Faulk but that's way too much coming from Oilers come on now.

23 Aug 2017 16:34:49
A number 1 def for a third line center and a bottom pairing def? Plus have the Canes take on cap? No from the Canes.

24 Aug 2017 07:41:11
How is Faulk a #1? Doughty, karlson, Keith. these are #1s.
Plus, RNH is better than any centreman canes have now. He is a solid #2 centreman. Not a 3rd.
Also, I'm sure nurse isn't a bottom pairing.

24 Aug 2017 14:28:38
Lightening, ya just have to excuse Borje there. He's just a broken record Oiler hater.

24 Aug 2017 16:30:31
Oiler hater or not, pay attention to what their over priced guys have been getting. Nuge didn't Produce at all in the playoffs, despite multiple pp opportunities and playing against other teams third lines. At $6million, you can't expect a top return. Eberle got you a guy who is as much of a suspect as a prospect. Nurse, is a physical specimen but his decision making and hockey iq seem to be quite limited as even maclellen has acknowledged. Plus, the Canes have many superior young def. Faulk is a first pairing def on most teams and a pp quarterback. Oilers would do well making this trade.

24 Aug 2017 16:34:40
Lightening, if you check the depth chart, you will see the Canes have two centres who produced better than Nuge and have more in their prospect pool.

24 Aug 2017 17:02:15
RNH had more goals than any centreman on the canes.

24 Aug 2017 17:30:45
Nuge had less points than 3 Canes centres and two of them are younger. All are bigger.

24 Aug 2017 18:32:27
Told ya.
No, Oilers would not do well making this trade.

Just worry about your Flames buddy.

24 Aug 2017 19:04:47
Don't usually, but I partially agree with borje here. RNH is a great 3rd line centre, but could play top 6 in the right situation. Nurse has had so many up and down moments already (which is expected of a young Dman) that he's a real question mark, and Faulk is immediately the best Dman on a number of NHL teams, and slots in at second best on the teams with karlsson, burns, kieth, doughty, weber etc. And he's just one of the guys on Nashville and Anaheim.

24 Aug 2017 19:40:58
Nuge is absolutely not a third line centre.

24 Aug 2017 21:38:30
127th highest scoring forward in the league! Nuge is a third line center and a very soft and expensive one at that.

24 Aug 2017 22:14:52
I agree with ebsolutely, RNH could be a number one center on a lot of teams out there. the oil are only looking to trade him because of cap issues, I think 6 million is actually fair for what he brings to the table.

25 Aug 2017 15:09:15
Duchene must be a third liner too? And I think RNH is slightly overpaid.

25 Aug 2017 16:16:38
Nuge should be $5-5.5M per not $6M. Signing Hall, Nuge, Ebs to the exact same thing was the old dumb management which I'm so glad is gone.
Nuge is not a third line center. He's a solid second line center, Some would even use him as a number one on their teams.

02 Aug 2017 15:32:49
Holey moley.

Canes have Pesce + Slavvin signed for the next six years at a combined 10 million. Plus Faulk is onky at 4.75

Man, Carolina will have a lot of cap space to work with. They'll be deadly. If Tavares hits FA, I'd expect them to be major players, considering their cap situation.

02 Aug 2017 17:10:31
For what they have done so far I think it's fair but nothing more. No need to get excited.

02 Aug 2017 17:14:57
They should be players but I think it's a stretch he goes to that market unless they are paying far more. Could be wrong but I see him wanting to be the main guy in a big market. Montreal, Detroit or maybe Buffalo (not typical big market but has an owner that loves to spend and make a splash)

02 Aug 2017 18:32:21
Jim. why would Buffalo be in the conversation for Tavares. with Eichel and Orielly, that's going to be one of the best 1 2 center combos in the game. I do see a team like Detroit being a place for Tavares though.

02 Aug 2017 18:59:49
Detroit would be a great place for Tavares and something as a Wings fan I would love to see happen.

However based on our current trend down and limited cap space. I could see it being tough to fit let alone get Tavares. Now I wouldn't be surprised if Detroit called if he hits Free agency to gauge his interest and inquiried about the possibility. Detroit has done that with numerous big free agents ( Suter, Stamkos), however still lost out on both.

Also even getting Tavares may not be enough to pull us out of the first round. Which if we had him, we would make playoffs but not likely deep.

Tavares will likely sign elsewhere and not in Detroit unless we drop like 8-10 million in cap space. Plus Detroit is going to need raises for Larkin, Mantha and AA (right now) soon. Which will be tough to fit unless we can dump Ericsson, Helm and Abdelklader's deals or other big ones.
I'm sure Frans Nielson may call and see if Tavares can join his old buddy probably still won't be enough.

02 Aug 2017 22:55:15
Sabres owner was all in his on stamkos too and already had both of those players. But Tavares is from the Oakville area which is 40 minutes to Buffalo. If Toronto is his hometown team, buffalo is next. His uncle was a captain of the Buffalo lacrosse team and played his whole 23 year career there from the day the franchise started, kinda the Shane doan of NLL. I see the Sabres as having a chance at him, it's close to his home and his family has ties to the city already. On ice, I see him going to Detroit or Montreal more, but I wouldn't be shocked if Buffalo was on his radar too.

03 Aug 2017 01:31:08
They have all these players due to a substantial raise next year. They only have around $7 mil off the books next year IF they don't resign any of their UFA's. Look at these RFA's next year and what they will make.
They are going to be in trouble in the next couple of years.

02 Aug 2017 23:59:41
Sosa i think you forgot about Crosby and Malkin.

03 Aug 2017 13:23:58
Hckyfntc their UFAs are Lee Stempniak, Josh Jooris, Derek Ryan, and Cam Ward. You think any of them will break the bank to come back if they decide to bring them back? RFA included they free up about 9 mill to have 26 mill in cap space after next season for those you mentioned and bringing in some other players. I don't see how they're in cap trouble. Maybe to an internal budget but not cap, and we all know budgets can change quickly.

03 Aug 2017 16:49:29
Vancity. didn't forget about them. or McDavid and Draisaitl. i said "one" of the best. not the best.

03 Aug 2017 22:11:33
I never said their UFA's would break the bank. The 5 RFA's mentioned will get at least a combined $15 mil between them which leaves them with 17 roster spots (1 goalie, 6 dmen, 10 forwards) not including when all those raises they just gave kick in ( $7 mil+ just for Slavin and Pearse) Take the $15 mil for RFA's and $7 mil in raises already done that leaves them with $4 mil cap space to fill their holes.

03 Aug 2017 23:54:12
My number is from Cap Friendly. It includes the extentions kicking in next year. They likely have some young ELCs that can come in and if they hand out 15 mill to one top 4 D a top 6 F and 3 bottom 6/ bottom pair players all RFA there's a problem.

25 Jul 2017 03:52:18
No one seems to be posting so I will.

Tor- marner

Car- faulk

This is the base of the trade. Gets Toronto their #1 rhd to pair with reilly. Reilly showed that with a true #1 #2 guy by his side he can Excell. (Reilly parayko international combo) . Carolina gets a young winger to add to their younger team.

25 Jul 2017 15:16:15
Nah i'd rather just hold onto Marner.

26 Jul 2017 17:03:14
Nah Carolina can keep Faulk at that price. Maybe Marner for Slavin. But not Faulk he is to old and small and is not Elite defensively would like defensman younger then Marner in anytrade. Marner=Zach Werneski. The Big 3 can Leave as UFAs. Besides the leafs biggest priority should be depth on the LW not deffense.

26 Jul 2017 17:05:33
I'm not convinced Marner alone would get this done. But, I'm sure it could lead to more discussion.

26 Jul 2017 17:09:51
Toronto adds tho. Faulk is the better player on a good contract and stays healthy. CAN'T say the same for Marner.

27 Jul 2017 14:40:10
Marner missed 5 games in the last 4 seasons and never had a major injury in his life. Like are you okay in the head GoldenShowers? Faulk only played a full season once in his NHL career and had a major injury in 2015-16.

27 Jul 2017 17:05:00
Marner does not have injury concerns he had mono. Come on, know what you are talking about before you say stuff. Also he's on an entry level deal so his contract is far superior to faulks.

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.

14 Jul 2017 07:33:01
Carolina Hurricanes:

- Tyler Bozak

Toronto Maple Leafs:

- Roland McKeown


Toronto clears cap space.
Get's a good d-prospect.
Carolina can put Lindholm on the wing.

14 Jul 2017 09:36:24
Leafs add. a 2nd or a forward prospect. Bozak has only one year left.

14 Jul 2017 11:54:08
Ill pass on that from the leafs. Personally don't think McKeown will be become anything more than a depth defenceman. Would prefer to acquire a draft pick instead.

14 Jul 2017 20:25:14
I'm with Charles. Would have to be a better D prospect. I trust hunter to pick the right guys more than take another teams leftovers. Don't see mckeown as any more promising that. 3-4 leafs already have on Marlies. Is he a big upgrade over Nielsen, Dermott and valiev? Also he's not a guy that can step right in, leafs have those 3 at about the same level and just selected 3 more D that are a cpl years away. Make it a pick or a more ready defender.

14 Jul 2017 23:45:30
I'd do it for the leafs. Great skating right hand d man, entry level deal. Just cause he's low on the stacked Carolina defence ladder doesn't mean he has no value. Good trade.

15 Jul 2017 16:40:37
Just don't see mckeown being 1) better or 2) more NHL ready than the 3 Marlies D that were great last year in the AHL and deserve a look from the big team first. Getting marleau, hainsey and Moore shows leafs brass wanna try to win while guys are still on entry level deals because it gets harder after that. Losing a really solid 2 way centre with decent offense, good Faceoffs numbers and plays all situations for a guy to battle with 3 or 4 others for a 6th or 7th d spot seems like a step the wrong way.

13 Jul 2017 14:29:32
WPG: Ehlers
CAR: Hannifin

13 Jul 2017 20:28:08
Need more to get hannifin. Unless someone blows them away with an offer, hurricanes will build a D core to rival ducks and preds, starting with Faulk, slavin and hannifin. Preds don't want to break up there top 4 to get duchene, don't see canes doing it for ehlers alone.

12 Jul 2017 01:51:16
Edm- draisatl
NYI- taveres

Taveres wants to win and Edmonton is a contender. He'll probably get s bit more money than drai but maybe he takes a discount to play on a good team. Islanders could lose taveres for nothing to free agency, this way they get a very capable younger top tier center to replace taveres. Also both players go to different conferences so they won't play each other often. Then;

Carolina- McKeown

Edmonton gains cap space while also gaining a good RHD pick moving def man. Strome slots in as 3rd line centre. Carolina gets a very good centerman that can push the offence who also plays good defensively. They can also afford his contract while giving up defence prospect who is further down in their defence latter.

How'd I do?

12 Jul 2017 02:59:21
Uhhhh pretty horrible actually. First trade obvious no from Edmonton from age difference (I do love Tavares but no way that works) . Carolina trade is pathetic for Edmonton :/ come on you literally say why it's brutal for oil to make it.

12 Jul 2017 03:48:50
RHN for McKeown is almost as laughable as The Taveres deal .

13 Jul 2017 02:03:52
RNH>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>X100 over who? lol

tavares value (not skill) >>>> over draisaitl

Edmonton loses sooooo much value.

14 Jul 2017 04:35:59
Tavares with contract>>Drais. Drais>>>Tavares without contract.

14 Jul 2017 04:59:18
Even if the draisatl trade couldn't happen why would you want to pay 6 million for RNH to play 3rd line centre when they have a much cheaper fully capable Strome to fill that role? Isn't that what Edmonton wants/ needs is a RH puck
Moving defence? Just cause McKeown isn't at the top of carolinas loaded defence pool doesn't mean he has no value and I guess it's just my opinion and probably a similar opinion of most non Edmonton fans that RNH isn't going to fetch you as much as you Edmonton fans think given his salary and production. If NH was traded for a d man who do you honestly think you're going to get for him?

14 Jul 2017 06:18:21
Obvious no from the Islanders. 26 year old Tavares has led that team and averages close to a point a game even though he has little support unlike Drai. He would light it up to a whole new level in Edmonton. I'm sure the Oil would love to dump Nuge but they may find offense a little tougher to come by this year.

14 Jul 2017 13:57:09
Remember when Taylor hall was traded for Larson and all oilers fans were pissed cause they got ripped off and now Larson is arguably their best defenceman and oikers fans on this website are suddenly high on Larson and think he's the greatestt. Point is RNH doesn't have as much value as hall, I guarantee you oilers fans that if he goes get traded the return won't be as good as you think. RNH is expendable do they're dealing out of strength to get something they need. a pick moving RH d man, which McKeoen is. Just because McKeown isn't st the top of a defence pool that is loaded doesn't mean he isn't good or will be good. Carolina could add a 2nd to sweeten the deal. Point is it's 2 teams dealing outta strengths to solve needs. Not to mention that trading NH they'll gain cap room after signing drais.

12 Jul 2017 01:49:38
Islanders -taverese

Traverse wants to win, Edmonton Is a contender also gets him out of the east so they're not playing against him often and he could be extended for not much more than draisatl wants. Gives Edmonton a proven 1-2 punch. New York gets a younger top centerman to build around who can contribute now and for the future.

Edmonton then trades RNH to Carolina for MCKeown. Edmonton gains cap space to sign taverese, gives strome the opportunity to play 3rd line centre and gives Edmonton s RH puck moving defencemen that in a couple years could be top 4. Carolina gets a very good centerman that's young and that they can afford.

12 Jul 2017 08:56:46
who is t (r) averese is he any good?

06 Jul 2017 14:46:38
CAR: J. van Riemsdyk
TOR: B. Pesce.

06 Jul 2017 15:37:33
No from Carolina unless JVR was pre extended.

06 jul 2017 17:13:48
omg benn is back.

07 Jul 2017 08:30:10
If they had an agreement on a new deal in place I think it might be fair. what would JVR want for his next contract? 5-6 years at 6 mil?

07 Jul 2017 08:30:36
not sure canes would take him if that's the contract he demands.

07 Jul 2017 10:42:01
I'm pretty sure his initial ask will be higher. Would expect him to ask 7*7 for the beginning.

07 Jul 2017 12:25:31
Yep I'm sure he would.

07 Jul 2017 14:51:45
The Canes are very high on Pesce so no from them.

07 Jul 2017 15:27:55
Gotta give to get. i'd rather Keep Faulk over Pesce and McKeown won't get it done I'd say.

08 Jul 2017 15:16:17
Not bad, but omg actually agree with VB here. Would need an extension, Pesce has more value then 1 year of JVR.

05 Jul 2017 21:00:13
Edmonton: Jesse Puljujärvi and 2nd Rd 2018

Carolina: Justin Faulk

Edmonton: Gets a cheap offensive deffensman that can quterback a power play. Who is on a great contract

Carolina: they get an Elite prospect with lots of potential and they have a surplus of defenceman.

06 Jul 2017 02:20:30
Faulk can get wayy more.

06 Jul 2017 02:45:48
Unproven prospect for a great dman and possibly late round pick. Car says no.

06 Jul 2017 04:43:40
Traderbro- McDavid was once an unproven prospect.

06 Jul 2017 05:07:23
Love Faulk but it's either Carolina adding or oil ain't doing it. That age gap is a little much and you just said elite prospect. why would they even trade him then with oil RW depth not super great!

06 Jul 2017 10:19:48
The RW depth would be the only thing holding me back on that trade like you said but Faulk is exactly what the Oilers need and he's only 25. Good trade for both teams. Best proposal yet VB.

06 Jul 2017 14:02:17
I know RW depth isn't great but at the point in the teams development, is say oilers got to take this deal. To get a D like Faulk on his prime while losing nothing of the roster that impressed so much last season is huge. Also with centres like mcdavid and draisatl, it will be much easier to find decent wingers than a stud D like that. Mediocre wingers can be good beside great centres. (Kunitz/ Crosby for all those years) (Burrows scoring 35 with Sedin) Centres, D and goaltending will win before any winger.

06 Jul 2017 16:49:40
Hey I'd take it, like I said I love Faulk, but Oilers wouldn't. Chiarelli would get his head chopped off if that trade happened by our fans I'll tell ya that right now.

06 Jul 2017 17:46:26
Then your fans are dumb.

06 Jul 2017 18:15:22
Carolina isn't adding lmfao.

06 Jul 2017 18:19:41
IM sorry Mcdavid an unproven prospect. that's laughable at best. let's compare first year stats

Mcdavid- 45games g16 a32 pts48 -1 (had 120pts in 47 games ohl) elite prospect

PLaine-73 games g36 a28 64 pts Elite prospect

Jesse P- 28games g1 a7 pts10 +5 (had 28 pts in smliiga in 50gms)
Also played 39 games in ahl g12 a16 pts 28 not even ppg player in ahl. How does this make him elite.

So stats don't lie. I think he will be top 6 no doubt but elite def not.

06 Jul 2017 22:42:53
Ok McDavid was never unproven and Oilers would only dream of this deal happening.

07 Jul 2017 05:17:54
Hard to say who is ever going to be elite. word get tossed around way to much anyway. however let's let this kid play first before we judge him. the way "elite" is used on here, dunno if anyone thought Jamie Benn was going to be the player he was going to be. and no, I'm not comparing the 2. jus let the kids play., and who they become, they become.

07 Jul 2017 05:23:30
Not today's right. The fans that complain about that deal are uneducated fans. You have a prospect who had a less than stellar draft year, fell to you at 4th and hasn't been overly impressive since. It's very early and he's very young, but when the piece you're getting back puts you that much closer to a real contender, how can a real fan that knows what they're talking about hate that deal and rip a GM? The guy coming back making you so much better isn't a 35 year old with a year left, he's a top pair 25 year old Dman with 3 years left on his contract at less than 5 mill. Can't worry about what dumb fans think. GMs job is to improve his team and this does that tenfold.

07 Jul 2017 05:25:24
. and Nylander, Mcdavid was proven since he was 10 years old and Gretzky would go watch him in tournaments. I get the point that all guys have to earn their stripes, but anyone but him would have made the point better lol.

07 Jul 2017 14:42:17
Before resigning Russell to $4M per for 4 years (I don't like the term at all, 2 years was hoping for) this is a maybe and still a no because of Edm RW depth.
But it's def no after resigning Russell. Nurse get a raise next year. If theu got Faulk they could have all 6 their D making over $3.5M-$4M depending what Nurse gets. It's an easy no because they don't need to pay their third paring so much.

Klefbon Larsson each just over $4M
Sekera $5.5 Faulk just over $4M
Nurse raise to probably $3.5/ 4M Russell $4
It's an easy no from Edm They need Puljujarvi to produce soon. Maybe if they were to get Sekera to waive no trade. Which i hope he we can some day in a year or two.

07 Jul 2017 14:52:06
Typical Mcjesus. Edmonton would take that and run.

05 Jul 2017 20:32:21
The Edmonton Oilers trade (C) Ryan Nugent-Hopkins + (RW) Anton Slepyshev + 1st Round Pick to the Carolina Hurricanes in exchange for (D) Noah Hanifin + (C) Elias Lindholm

Maroon - McDavid - Draisaitl
Lucic - Lindholm - Strome
? - Cagguila - Puljujarvi

Klefbom - Larsson
Hanifin - Nurse
Sekera - Russell.

05 Jul 2017 20:46:39
Not close for Hanfin. Nuge is overrated. Pulj and Slepy for Faulk is better. Unless if Edmonton is really high on Slepy they could switch him to a pick.

05 Jul 2017 22:16:37
More from Oilers.

Lindholm >>>>>> Slep + 1st.

05 Jul 2017 23:34:33
Das not what I meant, smh. I wrote RNH = Lindholm BUT Hanifin>>>>Slep+1st.

05 Jul 2017 23:47:53
Really topshelf I'd say Lindholm=Slep and 1st and Faulk>>>>>Nuge

Slep and a 1st>Nuge.

06 Jul 2017 05:08:10
How the f does lindholm = Nuge are you high.

06 Jul 2017 05:08:40
Sorry but no Nuge > lindholm for sure.

06 Jul 2017 06:02:52
McJesus I'd rather have Lindholm on the Leafs then Nuge because of contract reasons and offensive upside.

06 Jul 2017 12:04:01
Why is lindholm so overrated? The highest set of points he's had is 45pts. I think it's fair. Slepyshev could he 30pts I think and a 1st just adds on to that.

07 Jul 2017 14:53:27
Lindholm is younger and cheaper than Nuge plus he just outscored him. Carolina says no.

08 Jul 2017 15:17:35
Laughable for Carolina.

29 Jun 2017 20:32:33
Tor: Marner/Nylander ( pefferably Marner ),Kadri and 1st

Carolina: Slavin

Toronto: Steep price but Slavin is already a top 10 dman in the NHL and once his offensive game grows he will be a top 3 dman in the NHL

Carolina: Gets a very good 2c and a potentially elite forward imo he will be Kucherov esc.


Tor: Marner

Carolina: Hanfin,Lindholm and 2nd

29 Jun 2017 20:41:33
Sorry Bozak not Kadri.

29 Jun 2017 20:54:40
You were showing signs of improvement Nylander, but this? THIS?!

This basically means that Slavvin is like 15 times better than Hanifin, which is clearly not true.

Toronto easily doesn't do the first trade, Kadri is at a peak in galue right now, both their rookies played extremely well, and a first has good value atm.

Carolina doesn't touch the second one, imo, Marner and Hanifin are about equal in value, but with defenseman being at such a high price tag, Hanifin is probably worth more. And you add Lindholm and a 2nd? Man, you are crazy.

Come on man, your other posts were decent. This is just nonsensical.

29 Jun 2017 21:01:27
Are you out of your mind? Kadri and a 1st would be enough for slavin, adding marner or nylander come on.

29 Jun 2017 21:44:10
Huge overpayment for Slavin. And No, he's good and maybe will be a top 10 dman in the league but not yet.

29 Jun 2017 22:02:34
I think this was the joke of the day.

29 Jun 2017 22:08:43
Slavin>>Hanfin Clearly. Hanfin is the best defensive denfenman in the NHL I've watched him a lot and he never makes mistakes. You can't seriously say that Hanfin=Slavin. Marner>Hanfin there is no Debate about it Marner was drafted higher and Exceeded expectations while Hanfin never did anything special. Hanfin will never be Elite but IMO he will be a Good number 2 dman. Kinda Reminds me of Slava Voynov who IMO is underrated.

29 Jun 2017 22:12:42
Mclarty have you ever watched Slavin play? That's ridiculous Slavin>>>>Kadri and 1st. I meant Bozak tho. Kadri and a 1st=Hanfin.

29 Jun 2017 22:26:30
Ok that's not what's being talked about But my boss who is friends with those who know Told me talks are happining its JVR Bozak 1st for Hanifin and Lindholm. This will happen by july 5th.

29 Jun 2017 23:31:00
In my opinion. Carolina would ask for marner cause he's younger and better than kadri. Kadri and 1st wouldn't get it done.

30 Jun 2017 00:49:00
I'm not going to take too much of what you say if you're throwing comments around "hanafin is the best defensive defenseman in the league. "

30 Jun 2017 02:13:08
Tommy . if that's true., that would be a huge steal. I think Leafs would have to add to get those 2 young guys.

30 Jun 2017 03:47:57
Lol wtf is going on here since when did Slavin become a top 10 dman lol.

30 Jun 2017 04:02:54
If he's really a top 10 d-man in the league (which he isn't), why tf would Carolina trade him? Toronto says no.

30 Jun 2017 04:30:57
Mclarity- I mean Slavin not Hanfin. Hanfin isn't very good at the moment.

30 Jun 2017 04:39:17
I hope you're right Tommy. I don't know a lot about Hanifin but I've heard he's good. Could you tell me what he brings to the table?

30 Jun 2017 06:56:19
Nylander wtf is going on with you? You say Hanifin is the best defensive defense man in the NHL, never makes mistakes. Then in your last comment you say he is not very good at the moment.

30 Jun 2017 14:44:28
Not Today- I was talking about Slavin and I used Hanfins name by an mistake.

30 Jun 2017 16:35:37
Just Garbage.

30 Jun 2017 19:23:53
Wow. just wow. Absolute no from the leafs. Overate players much?

30 Jun 2017 22:25:58
Hahahaha. Yikes. This thread is hilarious.

29 Jun 2017 00:57:49
WPG: Petan, Little
CLB: Murray


WPG: Petan, Stanley, Harkins
VGK: Theodore


WPG: Petan, Armia, Tanev
CAR: Slavin


WPG: Petan, Dano, Kostalek
MIN: Rielly

29 Jun 2017 05:16:58
You don't like Petan don't you.

29 Jun 2017 05:45:37
Carolina one is bad.

29 Jun 2017 14:06:54
Try for Derrick Pouliot of the Penguins.

29 Jun 2017 14:51:22
The only one that's even somewhat close is the Columbus one, and only because they need a centre with Karlsson being gone.
