You really must be high.

13 Nov 2017 19:46:57
Van: Sam gagner and derrick pouliot.
Chi: Ryan Murray.

13 Nov 2017 21:00:41
Columbus had gagner last year and he had 50 points and they didn’t bring him back as a free agent. That tells me there is something in his game they didn’t want. So if they had him for free, and passed, why 18 games later would they trade a D like Murray for him and a pouliot (whose value is at an all time low)

13 Nov 2017 21:09:05
Lol chicago.

13 Nov 2017 22:18:55
Cbj mistake.

13 Nov 2017 22:28:49
No from "Columbus" ryan Murray doesn't play for the hawks

13 Nov 2017 23:29:01
Imo, I don't think columbus’ gm would be too crazy about Stan bowman trading away one of his d man.

14 Nov 2017 18:59:00
Ryan Murray has been what cbj that he was and they Thought luc.

31 Oct 2017 23:35:53
toronto: Kapanen + rychel
Chicago: seabrook (25% retained) + 2nd

Close? i don't think chicago would want to retain but may have to considering seabrook's age and contract.

01 Nov 2017 05:27:32
No way that ever happens Chicago is stuck with that bad contract length and only way of getting rid is to trade to a team with a lot of cap and give up a good prospect like Debrincat.

30 Oct 2017 18:06:38
EDM: 3rd
CHI: Sharp

30 Oct 2017 21:21:49
Maybe 2d but 3d not even close.

30 Oct 2017 22:33:27
Sharp isn't worth a second right now.
Sharp isn't the answer to Edm wanting a scoring winger.
Sharp is staying in Chicago for the season.

31 Oct 2017 01:08:57
But why would Chicago trade away sharp?

26 Oct 2017 17:56:03
Matt Duchene to Chicago for debrincat and a first round pick and a second round pick

26 Oct 2017 18:37:47
Chicago declines. Age and contract controllability is the factor. They have high hopes for Debrincat moving forward. And a 1st and 2nd? For two years of a player. They are hiping he becomes their little Duchene, for a fraction of the cost for first bunch of years.
And even if they say yes to this deal, They can't even fit I. $6M cap without anything going back.

26 Oct 2017 19:39:51
Tell me a reason why Colorado would want that.

26 Oct 2017 20:47:35
why would chicago do that. 1) salary cap 2) way too much for duchene 3) dude debrincat.

26 Oct 2017 21:07:10
DeBrincat is untouchable.

27 Oct 2017 03:06:05
Debrincat is not untouchable lol he's a young, promising second round pick. They had as much hope in terravainen and used a higher pick to get him and used him to dump a bad contract. Let's not start talking about debrincat like he's Mcdavid. Not saying the deal is good or believable, just think there's a big difference between expensive and untouchable.

27 Oct 2017 04:05:46
Woulda thought panarin and hjarlmarson were untouchable also though.

24 Oct 2017 22:06:20
Random Thought:

Matt Duchene to the Montreal Canadiens in exchange for Max Pacioretty and Noah Juulsen.

Max Pacioretty to the Chicago Blackhawks in exchange for Alex DeBrincat and a 2018 1st Round Pick.

In all, Colorado gets a 1st, a young NHL player, and a prospect for Duchene, which is what they want.

Montreal gets a centre, which they need.

Chicago gets an affordable winger, which they could use.

Idk. Lol.

24 Oct 2017 23:50:28
Chicago won't do that trade. Not even a little.
Pac for this and next year or Dibs and a 1st for many many many years. Easy pass on that deal from Chicago.

25 Oct 2017 01:37:24
chicago wouldn't touch that with a 50 foot pole.

06 Oct 2017 05:02:36
chicago: seabrook (retain 50%) + 1st round
toronto: rychel or kapanen

chicago: Hossa + 2019 3rd
vegas: 2018 5th round pick.

06 Oct 2017 14:05:21
As a leaf fan I'd take Seabrook at 50% plus a 1st for rychel all day long. Not for kapanen though.

06 Oct 2017 18:30:24
A lot more realistic cost for dumping seabrook. I'd take it for rychel any day, he was just waived lol.

08 Oct 2017 01:15:03
Hawks already lost hjalmarsson in the off season, and that offer isn't even close to realistic for his value, even at this stage of his career.

04 Oct 2017 21:28:43
Chi: Seabrook (retained 25%) +2nd round pick
carolina: Bean.

04 Oct 2017 21:49:57
You already tried this one. Hawks would need to include a very good prospect and maybe more to move seabrook. Good player, terrible contract. 7 more years of a guy with lots of hard miles on him at almost 7 mill per year is not getting you a good, cheap and controllable replacement.

04 Oct 2017 21:52:32
If he had 2 years left, then maybe, because canes can afford to lose a young D to make them better today. But having 7 years will force them to lose at least one, maybe 2 good younger players down the road when they're more developed and have to pay guys. Not worth it.

04 Oct 2017 22:36:52
Not bad rookie.

04 Oct 2017 23:14:15
Why does Carolina need more dmen?

05 Oct 2017 06:36:52
Unbiased Jim, no, i altered the trade i offered before, changed the pick and retained salary.

05 Oct 2017 06:53:33
Honestly to make that happen Chicago would have to retain 50%, include debrincat and add a 1st along with a 2nd round pick.

05 Oct 2017 07:56:46
A099 u are completely insane i would that seadbrook without debrincat and 1st and 2nd just at 50% retained get some hockey knowledge.

05 Oct 2017 21:17:14
@AO99, that's a little much lol If hawks would pay that to get rid of him, there would be a line up of teams to take that.

@PKane88, it's still the point that ditching 7 years of a Dman on the wrong side of 30 with way more tough hockey than a typical NHL player (Deep playoff runs/ Olympics) is going to cost you top prospects, not get them back.

29 Sep 2017 18:25:50
Chi: Seabrook + 2nd 2018
Carolina: Bean

Chi: Hossa + 3rd 2018 + 2nd 2019
Vegas: Reinhart, Carrier + 2018 5th.

29 Sep 2017 19:43:13
Hawks are going to pay large to get rid of seabrook. They aren't going to get a 19 year old first rounder Dman. It's going to cost them at least a jake bean type player, not the other way around.

26 Sep 2017 06:23:15
chicago: Seabrook, Hossa, 3rd
Vegas: Reinhart, carrier, 5th.

26 Sep 2017 15:46:39
Those are 2 bad contracts. I know griffin Reinhart doesn't have much value, but those 2 contracts will set vegas way back. They're going to have lots of good picks and young players that hopefully pan out and need paid. Hawks won their cups with those core players but re-upping seabrook is going to be one of the worst moves they made.

26 Sep 2017 15:47:01
Hahaha. No.

25 Sep 2017 20:19:55
Vegas: Reinhart
Chicago: Hossa + 3rd

Vegas: McNabb
Ottawa: Perron + 4th

Vegas: Carrier.

26 Sep 2017 00:13:57
Reinharts worth a third, i'd say. Hossa is dead cap space. So hell no for Vegas.

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.

04 Aug 2017 10:54:26
With Spooner looking for a long term contract with salary of 4m and up, the bruins might be looking to unload him before next season....

Bos Spooner 4 Pittsburg 2nd round pick 2018


Bos Spooner 4 Mtl 2nd rond pick(chicago's)

This would allow boston to make room for the cap next year, picks for trades or to draft... and room for younger players to gain experience...

Let me know if it makes sense value wise, not to sure of spooner's value, thanks

04 Aug 2017 13:39:04
I think they're going to want more than a late 2nd rounder for him but I don't know how desperate their cap situation is. Money problems make teams take less for better players obviously.

04 Aug 2017 16:49:52
Any trade with MTL and Bos doesn't make sense.

05 Aug 2017 04:42:12
they just love to hate each other I do not see it happening unless a third team is involve.

05 Aug 2017 18:57:22
they love to hate each other, I don not see this one happening unless another team is involved.

05 Aug 2017 21:03:51
"That's hysterical" -Don Sweeney.

06 Aug 2017 19:34:29
The winning habits are saying blues would Like to unload Paul Statney salary cap, and thinks Bergie could Build a trade using Carr and other prospect for Statney , a lot more likely and spooner.

30 Jun 2017 20:56:44
Couple of Leaf moves.

Pittsburgh needs a 3C. I think Tyler Bozak may be the ideal fit there.

Tyler Bozak (50% Salary Retention) + Martin Marincin + Ben Smith to the Pittsburgh Penguins in exchange for Carl Hagelin + Derrick Pouliot + Tristan Jarry + 2017 5th Round Pick.

Hagelin had 22 points in 61 games. He was even scratched in the post season. He is more of a cap dump than anything now, and I think Toronto would be fine with taking him on. Pouliot and Jarry are two fine prospects who could end up doing well for Toronto. Pouliot is more of a reclamation project, but Jarry could end up as a solid NHL backup to Freddy.
As for Pittsburgh, they get a player who is all too familiar with Phil. Phil was at his best when he was with Bozak (weird, I know), so maybe reuniting them could get Phil back to his 30 goal days. Bozak essentially replaces Bonino at half of Bonino's FA cost, plus Pittsburgh dumps Hagelin, so the Pens save a ton of money.


I can tell that Chicago wants to be a contender again. They only have Saad on the LW though.

James van Riemsdyk to the Chicago Blackhawks in exchange for Marcus Kruger + 2018 1st Round Pick + Laurent Dauphin.

JVR is bound to get at least a first. A first, a cap dump, and a prospect seems to be enough for me. Especially considering that Kruger (the cap dump), can fill a hole on Toronto (4C) .
Chicago now has their lineup in tact for next year; Saad/ Toews/ Panik ; JVR/ Anisimov/ Kane. that's two solid lines. If JVR wants too much money by the end of the year, let him go to FA. This deal was more like a rental deal anyway.

Joe Thornton; 2 years/ 5.5 million per.
Cody Franson; 1 year/ 2.2 million.
Curtis McElheinney 1 year/ 800K

Toronto lineup:
Zach Hyman - Auston Matthews - William Nylander
Leo Komarov - Nazem Kadri - Connor Brown
Kasperi Kapanen - Joe Thornton - Mitch Marner
Carl Hagelin - Marcus Kruger - Matt Martin
*Josh Leivo/ Kerby Rychel

Nikita Zaitsev - Jake Gardiner
Connor Carrick - Morgan Rielly
Cody Franson - Derrick Pouliot
*Calle Rosen

Frederik Andersen
Curtis McElheinney.

01 Jul 2017 02:53:55
The Pittsburg one is just horrible for Toronto they keep 50% get a horrible contract (cap dump) and two bad prospects? While Pittsburg get a 60 point player for an amazing contract and a young defenceman that actually played in the NHL? Is it just me or this is ridiculous

Also Toronto won't take Markus krugers contract he's making more than 3mill and giving up JVR and receiving a low 1st?

Both trades were bad IMO but just my opinion.

01 Jul 2017 03:01:42
Honestly this is hilarious! Can't see this coming from anyone else than a huge Pittsburg fan.

01 Jul 2017 07:56:30
^clearly you have no idea what you're talking about. Pouliot was one regarded to be a great prospect, which he hasn't shown yet, but sure good to give him another shot and Tristan Jarry is quite a good goalie prospect, just overshadowed by Murray. Also, TOR basically isn't giving anything but Bozak.

01 Jul 2017 11:38:12

Lmao, if youve read from me before, I'm a leaf fan. I've always thought that Bozak/ JVRs peice tags were higher than this, but with the trades that have been coming in for players with term, it is clearly evident that the prices of two soon-to-be UFAs has dropped. What we get from Bozak is positional upgrade, a defenseman and a goalie. What we get from JVR is a first rounder, and Kruger can help on the fourth line. Yes the salary dumps are bad, but Hags comes to end at the same time as Marner/ Matthews need new deals. So there is no problem there. If worse comes to worse with Kruger, just buy him out.

Idk, of course as a leaf fan I would have wanted more. But looking at the market, I feel like both players values have gone down.

01 Jul 2017 15:35:11
@Draisaitl_94 what do you mean only giving bozak? They keep 50% of his salary and take a cap dump player that makes 4 mill for 2 more years and all they get back are 2 unproven low end prospects that played what 5-20 NHL games and is like 23.

01 Jul 2017 17:49:11
So basically an Early 2nd ( I'm guessing 30th ovr ) for JVR and on top of that 3mil in dead cap space ( the buyout period closed. ) why wouldn't you just keep him? And Bozak for Tristan Jarry? No from leafs Pouliot is a failed prospect that could do well in Europe. May as well just buyout Bozak then take on Haglin.

24 Jun 2017 11:19:40
CBJ: Saad
CHI: Anisimov, Dano

WPG: Dano, 1st
CHI: Ladd

CBJ: Panarin
CHI: Saad

(1+3 trade other little pieces involved)

Crazy. 2 Saad trades within 2 years in the end basically Anisimov for Panarin, as Dano is now in Wpg and Ladd in Ny. Wins for Clb and Wpg.

23 Jun 2017 17:23:05
As per Friedman.

Saad ++++ back to Chicago for Panarin +++++

The hockey world is losing everything.

23 Jun 2017 16:43:48
At the draft:

Mtl sends Chucky and a 1st to Chi

Chicago sends Anisimov and Hjalmarrson.

23 Jun 2017 17:13:06
No from MTL we don't want old players with bad contracts.

23 Jun 2017 20:48:59
Hjalmarsson got traded.

22 Jun 2017 20:05:57
Ott trades Claeson to
Chic for Seabrook

Allows Chicago to save money and get a solid second pair dman. Ottawa replaces hole left by Methot

22 Jun 2017 20:25:51
No from both.
Claesson doesn't get Seabrook, despite his long contract. He is still a good dman, who has won three Stanley cups. Chicago, if they want to trade Seabrook, will surely get better offers.

As for Ottawa, do they really want the contracts of Seabrook, Phaneuf AND Ryan dragging on for the next four-five years. Those are three overpaid, 30 year old players, who combined make 20 million. Dorion should be looking to dump Phaneuf and Ryan, not add another hefty contract.

22 Jun 2017 21:17:24
Seabrook is old and aging. He still has the IQ and Shot but his lags have worn out. That mixed with his terrible contract is say he has nagitive value. No team in there right mind would want him at his full salary.

21 Jun 2017 01:57:44
MTL: Anisimov

CHI: 2nd 2017, 3rd 2017

Not sure of Anisimovs value but maybe they get him at a cheap cost since chicagos cap problems.

If Montreal can handle Hjalmarsson and Anisimovs contract and able to sign galchenyuk and radulov...

MTL: Hjalmarsson, Anisimov

CHI: 2nd 2017, 2nd 2018

Montreal does Chicago a favour and gets them out of the red.

21 Jun 2017 02:24:21
Dont think that will be in compliance with the cap. Unless we can somehow get rid of Plekanec contract . Even then would be a stretch
I also feel like Habs should hokd on to a few picks. cupboard is really bare, especially with Sergachev gone now . All the prospects are C to C+ prospects at best.

21 Jun 2017 02:44:49
first of all montreal would have to lose emilin and plekanec to absorb those deals which is going to cost them, secondly I wouldn't want anisimov beacuse the main problem for Montreal last year was their faceoff % and anisimov is averaging 45% and that's the main reason they wanna trade him, third of all they are both pretty old and would much rather see Radulov stay and if anisimov comes in they won't be able to sign Radulov.

21 Jun 2017 15:18:33
2nd one is brutal Montreal adds A lot.

17 Jun 2017 23:57:06
Talks of Galchenyuk to Chicago for Hjalmarsson and a pick.

18 Jun 2017 00:35:43
I said that yesterday. Minny also offered Brodin to Montreal for Galchenyuk and a 1st. Montreal had until today to decide.

18 Jun 2017 00:40:14
No from Montreal don't want his bad contract.

18 Jun 2017 00:41:44
Only 2 years remaining and he's 30 never going to happen.
