21 Apr 2019 23:27:25
Devils will not take Neal as they are quickly becoming contenders.

If a team were to take Neal they’d need to be a bottom 5 team.

Also why would New York consider trading Zib he’s young and is there best player he won’t be moved certainly not for that.

22 Apr 2019 00:30:17
How did William Nylander get on Calgary's first line lol.

22 Apr 2019 00:58:00
No from flames yikes
No from leafs
No from flames
No from coyotes
Last one idk lol

And you mean kap in the lineup not Nylander.

22 Apr 2019 02:19:50
I changed nylander to kapanen but forgot to switch them in the lineup. Easy mixup

22 Apr 2019 15:43:30
Nylander for Tj Bodie 😂😂😂.

22 Apr 2019 16:43:03
Wouldt touch nylander with a 10 meter pole. at that salary? No thanks, leafs are stuck with that anchor till he shows he can play well again.

23 Apr 2019 03:46:45
Leafs happily stick with Nylander unless they’re willing to cough up 1RD like Paryanko.

13 Apr 2019 01:39:53
Carolina Trades
6th Round Pick 2019 (Flames Pick)

Toronto Trades
4th Round Pick 2019 (Blues Pick)

This is the type of Trade both Teams will be looking at on Draft Day, Salary when Kapanen is resigned will be about even for both Teams, in my view it's pretty fair as Kapanen will step into the Top Line and DHamilton is a Top Defenceman that had an off year this season, Sparks is still going to be a solid backup and Carolina needs some youth back there.

Thoughts ?

13 Apr 2019 04:58:16
You know what like honestly interesting post. 👍🏻.

13 Apr 2019 05:12:04
I don’t think it’s enough from Toronto. We were just shown that they have no faith in Sparks by getting another Goalie, that means he has next to no value, and I don’t think Kap gets Dougie straight up.

13 Apr 2019 14:00:52
Kapanen has 1 solid season in the nhl but Dougie has 3 fantastic ones and a couple solid ones so I don't with only 2 years difference so I don't see how this is fair game.

11 Apr 2019 17:09:36
8th overall

3rd round pick

Edmonton gets their puck moving d-man, and Sekera only has a 15 team no trade now and is familiar with the Canes so may be open to going there again,and give Edm the cap space

Carolina gets a good pick to use to try to get a #1 center or to use in trade for a top center

11 Apr 2019 19:49:26
Oilers need a forward not a dman imo. we have some young dmen slowly coming up with not a whole lot of forwards.

11 Apr 2019 21:56:55
Huge no from oilers. Add Lucic and maybe oilers consider they’re basically giving the 8th overall for nothing ( a very good pp guy but ECHL level dman 5 on 5. )

12 Apr 2019 05:47:23
ECHL hahahah.

12 Apr 2019 06:08:00
I’m starting to like Faulk. This is funny.

11 Apr 2019 11:48:39
Another oilers trade

Oilers: 2019 first (8th overall) , Jesse p & Matt benning

Carolina: 2019 first (21st overall) and Hamilton

Carlina get a player they know have chemistry with aho from wjc , move up in draft + get RD to replace Hamilton

Oilers finally get their puck moving d-man to play with nurse

11 Apr 2019 15:36:08
man this is so dumb, if oilers trade the 8th pick they are including one of russell, lucic or sekera because we need cap space, were not includng two young cost controlled players WITH a top 10 pick come on buddy.

11 Apr 2019 16:10:46
We can trade Russel or lucic with carolinas pick?

We need cap to sign a player (s) , still need good players and Hamilton is a player oilers need.

11 Apr 2019 16:46:20
No team will take a 20 somethin first round pick and Lucic . his contract is too monstrous. That won’t be enough. And if oilers were to get Hamilton there is no guarantee the oilers can send off Lucic or Russell without retaining any salary so if that’s the case then we are over the cap and screwed and then also lost 3 young players from the pipeline including two top 10 picks . Obviously Hamilton would be nice on Edmonton but realistically our forwards need improvement, our defense has some good young players in the system already just let them develop.

11 Apr 2019 22:00:10
That can probably land Hamilton but not a 1st on top of that. You’re crazy if you think Benning Carries And value of significance.

12 Apr 2019 04:35:43
Oiler’s can afford this? We must move salary then too, yes? Hamilton is very good player. Carolina paid very much for him. Maybe is not enough to make this trade. No. I don’t think is good trade for Carolina. For Edmonton is very good trade, yes.

09 Apr 2019 23:57:10
I’d rather the leafs Buy out Tavares, Marner and Mathews then trade a 7th round pick for Faulk. Faulk is terrible he is the worst player in the game defensively. Dermotte is replacing Gardiner as the 2nd pairing LHD would be idiotic to trade him for anything short of an upgrade. Not a chance leafs make that trade with Edmonton. I get the point of dumping Zaitsev but not at the expense of Lilijgren and btw he is a RHD. Benning holds no value.

Nylander for Chychrun isn’t terrible.

10 Apr 2019 01:28:24
chych > willy
kadri > faulk

seriously the price to downgrade zaits to benning is lilj? for reals? contract aside that doesn't help the leafs at all.

hainsy is a free agent. dermott worth more than a 2nd to me.

10 Apr 2019 03:27:22
No from leafs idk why they’d make that lol
No from leafs
Huge no from oil come on bruh like what
Don’t know why leafs would trade Dermott.

10 Apr 2019 04:00:24
Why would leafs trade dermott and Hainsey for a 2nd? Hainsey is ufa after this year and dermott is worth more than a mid 2nd. Also wouldn’t want to give up Liljegren at this point to dump Zaitsev, not for Benning anyways. Personally I like the 1st trade but also think leafs could get s better return if they were to trade kadri.

10 Apr 2019 04:57:20
Liljegren is a RD and I’d rather not give up on him yet. Hainsey is a UFA and I say Toronto definitely keeps Dermott, especially if Gardiner walks. I’d be ok with a left side of Reilly, Muzzin and Dermott. I understand wanting to get rid of Zaitsev’s contract but there has to be a better way. The right side defense obviously needs an upgrade. Nylander for the best RD they can get would be the way I’d like to see it. Sorry but I also think Kadri stays until he’s up for a new contract. Toronto is definitely going to have cap problems and may have to lose someone, however I don’t think they will need to shake the roster up that much.

10 Apr 2019 16:47:39
confirmed that faulk banged vbs mom, no other reason for him to hate on him so badly lol.

10 Apr 2019 19:07:27
Notdelusional2 ahahaha

10 Apr 2019 20:55:50
Faulk for Kadri is a joke no other way of saying it. Kadri=RNH. RNH for Faulk? No Edmonton doesn’t touch that.

10 Apr 2019 21:41:36
Before Nuges 70 point season I’m pretty sure the rumours were a small add to RNH for Faulk. In my eyes his value definitely went up a little after this season but he was undervalued before. I agree no from Toronto though.

11 Apr 2019 15:20:25
Lol too bad Dubas already said nylander will not be traded as long as he runs thing lol.

11 Apr 2019 15:40:32
Oilers need RNH more than they need Faulk so yeah we obviously wouldn't touch that! Kadri is expendable (even tho i do not think leafs should trade him)

11 Apr 2019 22:04:01
Well Kadri is in the Same position as Nuge 3rd C on the depth chart only difference is Nuge moved up on the wing.

12 Apr 2019 04:48:06
We can afford Zaitsev? I don’t think so. Lucic + Zaitsev is $10M in bad contracts. Why we do that? Is not a good trade. We have Bouchard. Why then do we need Liljegren?

12 Apr 2019 16:40:50
Nylander is untradeable, he's pretty much a cap dump. .5 ppg at his price, no team is going to touch that. Especially not getting a good young dman.

03 Apr 2019 04:33:57
Hurricanes trade: Ferland, Fox

Canucks trade: 1st round pick 2019!

03 Apr 2019 05:23:34
No from Vancouver. Ferland will want too much for an extension and I don’t know enough about Fox to trade him for a lottery pick. Not to mention Fox is an RFA in the off-season, no guarantee he signs with us. Definitely not worth a first.

03 Apr 2019 17:43:51
If I was a GM of a lottery pick team, I'd never trade a 1st. maybe once the draw has been done. then ya know your value.
Even a team you forecast struggling a couple seasons. in a rebuild. wouldn't trade a 1st. look at Sens. going to miss really good chance at 2 highly talented players.

04 Apr 2019 15:31:19
So basically two UFAs for a 1st?

08 Apr 2019 10:09:20
Vancouver picks in top 5.
Ferland is UFA
And Fox another UFA is refusing to sign in Carolina after remaining unsigned by Calgary. Fox won't leave Harvard until he can sign with the NYR.

02 Apr 2019 04:15:56
Carolina receives: 2nd round pick 2019, 5th round pick 2019

Canucks receive: Fox

02 Apr 2019 07:26:47
Fox is looking like he'll be a really good defencemen. i'd say carolina declines

02 Apr 2019 17:18:31
But the problem is if he wants to sighn with Carolina. If fox doesn’t want to sighn the I’d take it.

08 Apr 2019 10:14:48
Fox hasn't signed with Carolina....
Didnt sign with Calgary....
Why would you waste picks on him..
If he won't play for western canadian calgary what makes you think he signs with Van?
He is holding out to sign with hometown NYR.
Born NY. Went to Harvard.

01 Apr 2019 22:26:23
Carolina is looking to trade fox as he confirmed he will not sign there. Obviously he carry's extremely little value because he is essentially a UFA and controls where he'll sign fully.

Toronto- Adam Fox

Carolina- 2nd round pick 2019

Fox would get the opportunity to be a top 4 dman on Toronto and could opt to sign there instead of playing his final year at Harvard

02 Apr 2019 01:36:01
He's a real good prospect and he was the only chance for Carolina to make that trade close to even. If a team knew he would sign with them he's worth much more then a 2nd. But not knowing whether or not he will sign makes it difficult to get anything of value for him now.

02 Apr 2019 02:40:59
I’d be so chapped if this happened wow but definite possibility!

02 Apr 2019 02:43:34
What about a later pick and bracco leafs are deep in wingers so could afford to move him. Carolina want some flashy players to add.

02 Apr 2019 17:50:11
Heard a couple days ago it's almost certain he's going to nyr, nyi or Boston weather through trade or sign after next season.

27 Mar 2019 14:05:51

27 Mar 2019 15:04:41
Um no from leafs unless they are extemely hurting for cap space.
Easy no from winnipeg unless for the same reason above.
No from oilers (cap + huge hole on defense) .
No from florida bcuz none of the above trades work out and florida should hang onto Tippet and that 1st, they aren't contenders yet.

27 Mar 2019 15:51:41
All these are absolutely terrible.

27 Mar 2019 18:02:27
I like Trocheck, but not at the cost of Laine.

27 Mar 2019 23:02:13
Jets will not be trading Laine.

26 Mar 2019 15:00:57
Washington: Andrei Burakovsky

Carolina: Trevor van Riemsdyk, Lucas Wallmark.

23 Mar 2019 17:50:13
With the Cap crunch to hit the Leafs I see there are 6 players in my view that will have to go, I don't see them resigning Gardiner, Hainsey or Ennis and see them trading Kapanen, CBrown and Zaitsev.
Zaitsev will have to be a Cap dump on a Team with lots of Cap Space with probably a Prospect added for a mid to later Draft Pick.
I do have one Trade Proposal that I could see happening and this is it.

Carolina Trades
6th Round Pick 2019 (Flames Pick)

Toronto Trades
4th Round Pick 2019 (Blues Pick)

Hurricanes get some much needed RWing depth with Kapanen being the key and see him as a great fit with Aho, CBrown on there 3rd or 4th line depending if JWilliams resigns and with there great Prospect Pool on Defense they can afford to move Pesce.

For Toronto this is a Trade they will have to make for Cap reasons and adding at least a Top 4 Defenceman with a good Cap hit will be worth it.

Thoughts ?

25 Mar 2019 16:48:10
Pinball it's either your overvaluing Kapanen or Brown because this is not even clost. Add Lilijegreen, Bracco, 2rd and its closer.

25 Mar 2019 17:03:50
Its a good base but i agree with BoomBoom, Carolina will likely want young forwards back so Bracco, Johnsson, etc. are potential pieces that would need to be added.

28 Mar 2019 11:21:59
Know your facts #thrasher69
Kapanen 22 years old
CBrown 25 years old
What do you consider young?
If anything the Leafs are robbed here it's like trading Kadri for DHamilton and BMcGinn if it where the Caine's needing Cap Space and the Leafs getting a 4th Round Pick for a 6th Round Pick.
Leafs will have to do this for Cap reasons not for fair Trade value.

18 Mar 2019 15:39:49
Carolina Trades
6th Round Pick 2019 (Flames Pick)

Toronto Trades
4th Round Pick 2019 (Blues Pick)
7th Round Pick 2019

If Dubas does decide to Trade Kapanen this is the type of Trade Proposal you would see, from Carolina's side it makes sense as well with there depth on Right Defense, and with Bracco probably ready next Season he would step right in beside Marleau and Kadri at RWing on the 3rd line, I do see a Trade match here at the Draft.

Thoughts ?

18 Mar 2019 20:37:57
Hahahaha dream on toronto fans.

18 Mar 2019 20:41:21
Lol Kapanen gets u 40% of Hamilton. Add Lillijegreen and Brown+ and that's closer.

18 Mar 2019 20:55:45
Boom boom, just like many you overated Hamilton. I would rather Pesce. Better all round game.

18 Mar 2019 21:51:21
So would Drouin, Juulsen and Shaw be close to fair value for Hamilton Boom Boom?

19 Mar 2019 01:16:05
I agree Pesce>Hamilton wouldn’t want to give up Kappy but I would for Pesce.

20 Mar 2019 15:11:45
Well your trade that was attempted to make fun of me is more fair for mtl then your trade is for Carolina. Drouin is not that good he's a clutch player and Juulsen is good yes proably be a good top 4. Shaw is not worth that much and he's overpaid but he brings lots of energy and is playing really good this year so I like him. But Hamilton is 25 and he's a solid all around defensemen it would take a package like the from mtl to get him cut mtl already has good RHD so mtl passes lol.

20 Mar 2019 15:13:07
Ya that's actually more then enough for Hamilton maybe even a small add on from Car bu that's a good trade compared to your first one.

20 Mar 2019 15:13:57
Jonthan Drouin and Juulsen both have more value then Kapanen so your mtl trade has almost 3 times more value then your Toronto trade. Shaw and Kapanen are not that far value wise.

20 Mar 2019 15:16:06
Problem people is Pesce is on a Cap friendly Salary signed long term and yes I would prefer Pesce over DHamilton but don't see Carolina doing that, DHamilton does give you more offence then Pesce so with how the Leafs are being built it still works.

20 Mar 2019 15:17:17
It took don cherry Kappy is only worth 1 of the mtl players u mention so essentially the package cmg from mtl is not comparable from Torontos. Not a good comparasion.

20 Mar 2019 15:47:05
‘Shaw and kapanen are not far value wise’

Lmao. If you think that, you’re crazy.

20 Mar 2019 19:17:37
I’d take Kappanen over Juulson without hesitation and at Drouins salary him also.

20 Mar 2019 19:50:58
Juulsen definitely does not have a lot of value right now, espeically with his eye injured.

21 Mar 2019 16:16:01
I read Hamilton for Kapanen is good trade. I don’t know. Hamilton is good, but Kapanen is too, yes. Much younger and will be on team much longer. Is betterLeafs keep Kapanen.

14 Mar 2019 23:40:41

15 Mar 2019 04:30:21
Have ya heard of a salary cap bud.

15 Mar 2019 04:42:02
I can see how that 4 year 4.75 mil deal for silferberg would be tempting seeing as though he signed a 5 year 5.25 mil per year a few weeks ago lol.

15 Mar 2019 15:05:46
hahaha habby good point.

15 Mar 2019 16:18:31
Also CAR takes that and runs at the draft because Ferland is a UFA.

16 Mar 2019 05:08:46
I would love to see Edmonton make all these lopsided deals that heavily favor Oiler’s. Except the Bouwmeester signing. That’s a strange duck that one.

28 Feb 2019 14:57:24
2 Draft Day Trade Proposals.

Carolina Trades
6th Round Pick 2019 (Flames Pick)

Toronto Trades
4th Round Pick 2019 (Blues Pick)

Canes will be looking to get better at Centre and Kadri is at worst a #2 Centre with Carolina, with all the depth at Defense with HFleury, Bean, Fox and McKeown moving DHamilton makes sense.

Like the Canes on the opposite side the Leafs need that RHanded Shooting Defenceman that will fit in nicely with Toronto, the Leafs are still strong down the middle with WNylander as a full time Centre and Bracco probably ready for a full time NHL spot on RWing.

Edmonton Trades

Toronto Trades

Edmonton will be looking for Wingers and CBrown and McDavid in the OHL lit it up when they played together, maybe that magic returns in Edmonton and if it does its a steal for the Oilers.

Leafs will be looking to strengthen the Right Side of the Defense and Benning like DHamilton will fit in with the Leafs, my guess is both Gardiner and Hainsey walk and Rosen comes in as a cheaper solution on the Left Side, but these 2 Trade Proposals helps the Defense.

Thoughts ?

28 Feb 2019 15:32:34
If Toronto wants a 25 year old RHD for Kadri they better add a first rd pick and B+ prospect.

28 Feb 2019 18:00:19
highly disagree boomboom.

01 Mar 2019 02:54:30
Yea that package isn’t anywhere close to getting DHamilton. 3rd line C and a slightly higher pick for a top pair right shot D? No chance.

01 Mar 2019 14:24:36
A 3rd line center that put up over 30 goals and 55+ points in consecutive years playing 3rd line minutes with some pp time. yeah I don’t think kadri would be a third line center on the Hurricanes. Unless hurricanes aquire 2 more centres that put up better numbers than kadri he’d be no less than a 2nd line center possibly 1st in carolina and if carolina wants/ needs offence than its definatley worth considering. I don’t think it makes sense for the leafs however, I’m sure they’d rather a more defensive d man than offensive minded hamilton.

01 Mar 2019 15:03:43
Hamilton’s contract is too short. Maybe if there was more time left. Hamilton also has no guts and is overrated. The value is there, but Leafs pass.

01 Mar 2019 15:03:53
The only reason he is 3rd line is because Toronto has two superstars ahead of him, why can't you morons realize just because the line you play on doesn't mean you're a ____liner. Kadri is a very capable #2 center.

01 Mar 2019 20:23:54
There was a couple people last year calling Marner a 4th liner last year because he was demoted for a week or two. Not looking much like a 4th liner now. Kadri is #2 center on many teams in the nhl.

03 Mar 2019 15:26:54
Hamilton, just like Faulk is way overated on this site. Gardiner who many deem as garbage was better stats than both the last 2-3 years.

05 Mar 2019 21:09:16
Atm Hamilton is very underrated just because he's not having the greatest season does not mean he's not a top 2 Defencemem on 60% of nhl teams.

06 Mar 2019 12:49:55
Boom boom, he is not a top 2 dman. I know my opinion is unpopular but he is far from solid defensively and offensively is as streaky as it gets. Same as Faulk, overated.

07 Mar 2019 11:19:25
On Toronto he's the best Dman atm. Reilly is really good but Hamilton is just having a down year, when Reillly will be 25 he might have a bad year too and it won't mean he's not top 2 anymore.

07 Mar 2019 16:00:30
no he is not better than Reilly. On Toronto Hamilton is top 2 solely because of having no good RHD. Sorry my opinion is different than yours and I am not basing my opinion solely on this year. I have watched him since coming into the league and I am not impressed at all. Just my opinion though as I have said all along. Maybe he gets traded to the Habs and you could find out for yourself.

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

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

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

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

24 Feb 2019 20:39:24
As long as Kadri isn't out long term and with WNylander looking like Centre is better suited for him I have a Trade Proposal.

Carolina Trades

Toronto Trades

Reasoning for Carolina is they get a Top 2 Centre on a good Contract in Kadri and they truly need a solid Centre, Gardiner replaces the Offense of DHamilton and even though he is on an expiring Contract they have deep Prospects to replace Gardiner next Season plus like the Leafs on the opposite side they have to many RHanded Shooting Defencemen.

For the Leafs this is more a Hockey Trade for them they are exchanging one expiring contract for another in Gardiner for Ferland but it makes the Defense better this Season and next as DHamilton is signed where as Gardiner like JVR and Bozak walks after this Season and with TMoore and Bracco maybe ready next Season if Ferland walks they have enough Prospects in the system that they are deep enough to make this Trade.

This trade really works out to Khadri for Hamilton and a top right shot d-man is better to have than a 2nd line, at best, center. The Leafs would have to add.

24 Feb 2019 21:13:47
That’s the trade and reasoning I posted yesterday, you just switched Hamilton for Pesce. Come up with your own ideas.

24 Feb 2019 23:44:14
Never seen your post #Leafs17 so don't know what you're talking about its my own Trade idea and don't think the Leafs need to add in this deal as it's very fair #islandjet.

25 Feb 2019 01:10:15
Fantastic idea. Carolina is in desperate need of defensemen, especially one that is going to walk end of season. I can’t believe this trade hasn’t happened yet.

23 Feb 2019 04:48:30
Kadri out with a concussion? Gardiner not at practice for a maintenance day? I say fake news, lol. I'm going to go with a different idea

Kadri/Gardiner for Ferland/Pesce.

Toronto has been linked to both of these players. Ferland brings in the physical presence and Pesce is a good RD on a reasonable contract. It's a small sample but it looks like Nylander is capable of playing center at the NHL level, if necessary.
Carolina could use center depth. Staal is not all that anymore and he's injured. Gardiner would be an offensive boost from the point.
It has been said that it has to be a money in, money out deal for the leafs. Ferland has a smaller cap hit than Gardiner and they're both UFA's. Kadri/Pesce would be the main pieces for both teams, both on similar contracts for years to come.

23 Feb 2019 05:28:07
Tavares/ Marner/ Hyman
Matthews/ Kapanen/ Johnsson
Nylander/ Ferland/ Marleau
Gauthier/ Brown/ Lindholm
Pesce/ Reilly
Zaitsev/ Muzzin
Hainsey/ Dermott.

23 Feb 2019 16:30:14
The only way I’d make that trade from a leafs POV is if they took Zaitsev. I believe Gardiner holds more value then Ferland And Kadri has more value then pesce also that leaves a huge hole at the 3rd line C position.

23 Feb 2019 16:46:01
How are we in a position where we are arguing both that Gardiner is a detriment to a team AND that he has more value than the top 2 way forward currently on the market?

23 Feb 2019 19:19:42
Gardiner is Toronto’s 2nd/ 3rd best dman as a dman he is out producing Ferland. 51 points as a deffensman is Elite.

23 Feb 2019 21:51:55
Ferland is not a C.

23 Feb 2019 21:49:54
Vbb’s he got 52 points once and is on pace for 40. Not too bad at all but Gardiner is not elite.

23 Feb 2019 22:13:52
If Nylander plays 3C vbb’s, the leafs still look pretty good.

23 Feb 2019 22:30:29
I'd rather keep Kadri if I was a Leafs fan.

23 Feb 2019 23:19:44
If you’re talking to me triplets, I put the Center first. Marner and Kapanen are not center either but Tavares and Matthews are.

24 Feb 2019 20:38:31
Just saw the third line lol, sorry. Curious: Why would you put the C first? Never seen that.

25 Feb 2019 05:06:23
I don’t know. It’s the centers line, so I put him first. When you’re talking about a line you would say Matthews line.

22 Feb 2019 05:35:08
CAR: Dougie Hamilton

TOR: Jake Gardiner, Connor Brown

Seems like CAR don't want him cause they got Pesce and Fault and TVR, they could use a LD as well. TOR need RD (of course) could work the D pairings well.

TOR: Zaitsev

NYI: 3rd or Scott Mayfield +pick

Lou would definitely take Zaitsev, he has value and GMs know that. Zaitsev just doesn't get the love in TO because Babcock doesn't use him the way he should be used. He will succeed on another team.


22 Feb 2019 11:53:28
Leafs homer much?

22 Feb 2019 13:29:46
Why would Carolina and the Islanders make these one sided trades? Gardiner is a UFA and Zaitsev is a cap black hole.

22 Feb 2019 15:02:04
Leaf homer indeed.

22 Feb 2019 18:40:54
TOR adds to get rid of Zaitsev's contract.
The difference in value between Hamilton and Gardiner is definitely bigger than Brown.

20 Feb 2019 20:11:44
Carolina - Faulk and Ferland

Winnipeg - Petan. Kulikov and a 3rd and 5th rounder in 2020

Jets need a quarterback for the PP. Kulikov and Faulk have similar contracts

20 Feb 2019 20:54:28
The Jets don't need either player. They're better off using Petan for Stone or Duchene, if they want to move him.

20 Feb 2019 21:12:32
I can't see this trade improving the Jets that much.

20 Feb 2019 21:13:35
It doesn't matter if jets need them or not, if you can get those two players for that pile of crap, the jets will pounce on it.

20 Feb 2019 21:36:11
Agree. It doesn't make the Jets better. No chance in hell the Jets consider it.

20 Feb 2019 23:11:03
I agree that if Jets made this trade they could easily flip those two players . for more than what their original package was Imo. Faulk isn’t needed but Ferland could.

20 Feb 2019 16:13:22
to Carolina

to Anaheim
2019 3rd
2019 5th

adding kesler works because carolina has room, but that devalues silfverberg enough from his already low value as a pending UFA down to a handful of picks. Anaheim gets a huge weight off their back and Carolina gets a rental for their now very likely playoff matchup.

20 Feb 2019 17:06:34
1) i don't think they are trading silfverberg, pretty sure they are trying to sign an extension
2) is it really worth giving up one of your top players to get rid of a bad contract?

20 Feb 2019 17:13:24
Pretty positive ducks would like to extend Silfverberg so no go. However if they could move kesler then why not, itll free up lots of cap but could be tough moving him.

20 Feb 2019 18:14:40
Keer is too old and costs too much. Silfverberg isn’t worth taking on that boat anchor contract.
