Chicago Blackhawks Rumours

(single word yields best result)

Chi: Saad

Van: Eriksson (retain 1million), 2nd round pick 2020

Maybe Chicago wants this as Eriksson is still an NHL player and canucks Retain a bit as he hasn’t more years left and then canucks get a guy who could use a change in scenery and add a 2nd to make up a difference in age and skill.

18 Oct 2018 00:14:50
Lol no. Chicago really really doesn’t want that.

17 Oct 2018 00:06:22
Straight-Up Hockey Trade:

New York Rangers Trade: Kevin Shattenkirk (6.300 Million x 3 Years: Retention 4.5% Salary)
Chicago Blackhawks Trade: Brandon Saad (6.000 Million x 3 Years)

Salary with the retention is equal. 6.3 in for CHI, 6 in for NYR + 0.3 for retention.

Both players haven't thrived in an ideal location, both have been healthy scratches and need fresh starts. Chicago could use a fast, puck-moving dman like Shattenkirk, and could be good as a mobile partner for Seabrook. New York could use additional forward depth if they decide to purge their forward core at the deadline [Kreider, Vesey, Hayes, Zucc, etc. ], and a bigger, younger guy in Saad could be helpful.

Saads youth compared to Shattys compensates for the salary retention by NY imo.

Leafs trade Nylander, Hyman
Chicago trades Boqvist, Saad

Same as Nylander for Timmins or Makar, Boqvist is an elite RHD prospect. Ranked as top 3 RHD prospect players and only 17 years of age, this kid has all the tools necessary to enter the league as a dominant defenseman for many years to come.

Hyman for Saad has to be included to balance salaries.

02 Oct 2018 15:53:47
Uh no from Chicago. Bruh.

02 Oct 2018 16:39:57
@mcjesus

Why wouldn’t Chicago make this trade?

Brevity is a virtue, but not always. A response without explanation is worse than no response at all.

I actually think Leafs would never make this trade. Saad appears to have stalemated. With a cap hit of $6M big ones, is a large financial hit for a player that may be regressing. Chicago is tight against cap and may be looking to unload Saad. Boqvist is the real target here, but I don’t think Leafs would be wanting to take on Saad and his bloated contract for a prospect player, even one as good as Boqvist.

02 Oct 2018 16:56:02
If Chicago is tight against the cap and would want to dump saads contract, where does Nylander and his $8 mill demands fit in? Also, they need cost controlled Boqvist far too much.

02 Oct 2018 17:14:14
@unbiasedjim

Nylander and his big bucks fit in because Chicago just dumped Saad and his bloated contract on us. Nylander has more upside than an older Saad. I’m assuming Chicago would be willing to pay young Nylander the salary to replenish an aging forward group that put up some lacklustre numbers last year.

Leafs would never make this trade.

02 Oct 2018 18:07:08
‘Leafs would never make this trade’

Then whyd u post it? (Not being rude, just genuinelly, lol)

02 Oct 2018 19:44:53
Also hyman makes $2.3 mill for 3 more years I believe. So you have $6mill leaving and 10.3 mill going back to a team you said is against the cap. That’s where my issue was, not debating that nylanders is a better long term investment than saad.

02 Oct 2018 21:52:35
@topshelfslappers

I posted it mainly just to irritate vb whatever his name is. You’ve seen my posts lots on the Leafs forum. You know I don’t post a lot of junk. But I do like to post at least one proposal a day, good or bad, just to get discussion going and see what others think of the suggested players.

@unbiasedjim

You’re assuming Nylander gets $8M. We can take more salary back to even it out if needed. I don’t like this proposal anyway. I would never seriously suggest taking Saad in in exchange for Nylander.

02 Oct 2018 22:56:14
If Nylander doesn’t get $8 mill, we will sign him. And if we are going to take back worse players equaling $10 mill just to get Nylander gone, what’s the point? Lol we aren’t exactly flush with cap space beyond this year either. If it’s a joke post, then fine. But seemed kinda legit to start, so just pointing out the flaws I see in it.

03 Oct 2018 02:44:02
“Elite RHD “ prospect. I guess every RHD prospect is the next Bobby Orr ehh?

03 Oct 2018 03:56:15
Stop talking like you’re a scholar or somethin hahaha jeez 😂 but Chicago doesn’t do this because boqvist will hopefully be their next “rock” on the point as their d corps now is aging and on the decline of course. And then Saad is still a very good serviceable player. Overall not good for Chicago cap wise (atm) and in the long run for the look of their roster. I’m sure they’d rather keep Boqvist and Saad than trade them for that return right now.

03 Oct 2018 05:56:29
@mcjesus

Thanks for the response. I can’t read your mind, so it’s always nice to have some input on your thinking. What may seem obvious to you may not be so clear to someone else. Sorry for talking like a scholar, I took English in university. It comes naturally to me now I guess.

To everyone that responded, thanks for the comments. I appreciate the feedback. It’s nice to know we all seem to agree that this is a bad trade for both teams. Let’s just put this one away in the back cupboard somewhere and forget about it.

@vb

I like your response here as well. A little humour goes a long way.

03 Oct 2018 17:29:52
Hahaha 👍🏻.

16 Sep 2018 15:35:48
Well, the Nylander rumours are looking like they may actually be true, as a leaf fan I'm starting to get worried, so I thought of a solution for both the leafs RD problem and who should replace Nylander at the same time

3-way trade
To Columbus:
Gardiner (5 year extension), Nylander, Tevor Moore
To Anaheim:
Savard, Carrick, 2020 2nd-leafs, Milano
To Leafs:
Panarin (two year extension), Montour

Gardiner=Milano, Savard
Nylander, Moore=Panarin

If any of you think Gardiner isn't worth anything, look at the Karlsson trade, Gardiner was 10 points behind the guy last year and had A BAD GAME that everyone is crapping on him about, you can't judge a guy because of one game, with an extension he is probably worth like Nazem Kadri, or even a bit more then that because he is someone that the bluejackets need, they shouldn't be relying on Ryan Murray to play well on the top 4, because I hate to break it to you Jackets fans, but he isn't the next Morgan Reilly, you hold him at a way higher standard then he is, he is at MOST a Boone Jenner trade comparison and is a top 6 defenceman and no higher.
Jake Gardiner-Bad game
Ryan Murray-Bad season
Who would you rather have on your top 4?

Panarin has an extension so leafs can then trade him for a younger guy like De Brincat because Panarin has been quoted saying that he would highly consider going back to Chicago short term, and 2 years there could make him open his eyes and realize that he shouldn't go to a rebuilding NYR and instead sign with a contender

16 Sep 2018 17:10:40
Leafs aren’t running away with Panarin and Montour for what their giving up lol.

16 Sep 2018 17:31:46
Look, Nylander will resign with the Leafs. Toronto will not trade Nylander for Panarin, a player that will command more than Nylander on a long term deal. I suspect that Nylander will sign for no more than between US$6.5 million and US$7 million per on an 8 yr deal. No way Nylander gets US$8 million per on a long term deal as per internet reports.

16 Sep 2018 17:57:40
I really don’t think Nylander has any leverage. Toronto has a couple wingers that can play with Matthews. If he holds out and let’s say Kapanen starts producing on that line. Nylander’s value will go down and he might just lose his spot. He doesn’t seem like the player that will try to fight his way from the fourth line back to the second.

16 Sep 2018 21:06:02
Little Leafs biased eh? Make out like bandits.

16 Sep 2018 21:24:34
Look, Nylander is a guy who should get 6.5-7 mill over 8 years, but obviously that is not what is going to happen, he wants 30% more then the leafs are willing to offer him, so i don't see that happening any time soon

Out of camp and into pre-season, Nylander will not play, maybe even into the regular season. The leafs are going to see if they need him, and if they don't he is going to be traded for a better winger, and a defenceman, this deal works out perfectly for Columbus because they get something back that can help them in the playoffs, I may have offered more then I should've for Panarin, there is no denying these offers help all the teams involved

Anaheim gets better defensive depth which they need, and a young forward they can also use, plus a second round pick to sweeten the deal. Savard can easily replace Montour on the top 4 while Carrick can replace Scene on Anaheim's top 6 defence, which they could really use, especially with how low his contract is.

Columbus gets a winger who they can sign long term, which is something they would absolutely love to get back for Panarin. Gardiner as I explained before would be an awesome defenceman to have an one that can play top 4 minutes instead of Murray. The only thing I can see happening in that trade is maybe the leafs add a pick to sweeten it, but other then that it looks good to me

The leafs get their defenceman to play with Reilly, while they also get someone to replace Nylander, and who they can trade later on to reclaim a younger but still talented player, like DeBrincat, Panarin may want to go back to Chicago anyway so that may work out perfectly.

16 Sep 2018 22:03:15
I don't recall the last time Gardiner won the Norris, comparing him with Karlsson is laughable.

17 Sep 2018 03:19:29
Gardiner is not Karlsson I know, but last year he was better then Morgan Reilly, he had the same amount of points as Reilly and a better +/ - while playing with Nikita Zaitsev, who wasn’t as solid last year and who was worse then Ron Hainsey
You can say Reilly played less games, but he was still -4 in the regular season, which isn’t that great as a defenceman playing on a 100+ point team
Gardiner isn’t worth trading Reilly, but he is very close to Reilly’s trade value if not better, as I said before he is a 52 point defenceman, your all underestimating him and he is worth so much more then you think, especially with a contract extension
Jake Gardiner is VALUABLE
If you don’t view it that way then somethings wrong.

17 Sep 2018 14:28:16
First off, Rielly played top pair with a 40 year old against top lines all year. So when he was on the ice, so was Kadris line most of the time as the shut down forwards. When Gardiner was on the ice, he was facing second line offensive players and had Matthews and Nylander on the ice with him. If you can’t see a benefit there that sways plus minus in jakes favour, I can’t help you lol

That being said Gardiner definitely has value, he’s a 28 year old puck mover coming off a 52 pt season and an extremely reasonable cap hit of $4 mill for another season. However nylanders rights with $8mill demand, Gardiner (even resigned) and Trevor Moore, who I’ve see play a lot and is a long shot to play in the NHL does not get you Montour and Panarin lol if Nylander came with a reasonable contract, it’s closer, but if he would sign reasonably, then you don’t trade him to get an older, more expensive winger with less years of control. Either way, it’s flawed.

18 Sep 2018 02:59:05
The leafs don’t do the major trading for Montour, Savard comes from Columbus and already make up half if not more of the trade value of Montour, the leafs give two elite players, a second, an underrated top 6 defenceman, and a prospect in Moore who is way closer to the NHL and could potentially get in next year, and in return get two elite players, seems fair to me.

23 Jul 2018 23:25:51
Phillipe Myers (RHD - 678K x 2 Years) + Jori Lehtera (C - 4.7 Million x 1 Year) to the Toronto Maple Leafs in exchange for Josh Leivo (LW/ RW - 650K x 1 Year) + Eamon McAdam (G - 800K x 1 Year) + 2019 5th Round Pick.

I know, it looks like Toronto fleeces Philly. But Philly wants to be a playoff contender this year, and can use the extra 4 Million in Cap Space if they decide to try and improve their roster via trade (Panarin, Skinner, Duchene possibly, maybe even a goalie) . Myers is a RHD prospect, and it does hurt to lose that, but Lehtera is legitimately useless, and is being paid 4.1 Million. If he can be dumped in the AHL he should be, and Toronto has nearly 20 million in cap space. Leivo can be a bottom six guy in Philly, and Myers could be a top 6 dman in Toronto.

Only reason I chose Philly is because they have a surplus of d (Ghost, Sanheim, Gudas, Prov, Morin) . Plus, it may seem like a lot to dump one year of a bad contract, but CHI dumped one year of Bickell with Teuvo for only a 2nd.

24 Jul 2018 05:18:35
I actually like this deal for both teams, Lehtera can be a 4th line center or AHLer for TOR and we get another RHD in our pool (something we can definitely use) and PHI gets rid of the cap while adding some potential goal scoring in Leivo (who TOR can replace from within the system) .

24 Jul 2018 15:13:11
Don’t think Philly does this but I’d take it from the Leafs POV.

25 Jul 2018 11:36:49
This is a good offer makes sense for both teams.

28 Jul 2018 17:17:18
I say no from Philly. Philly does have a bunch of D but not many RHD, they're expecting Myers to slot into top 4 then top pair eventually. You'll need to send more to philly for one if their top prospects especially when Hextall does not like to move prospects. I do like the idea of the trade tho.

17 Jul 2018 20:29:46
MON: Pacioretty
CHI: Boqvist, 2nd Round Pick 2019

17 Jul 2018 21:57:01
Hahahahahahahaha oh man. No from Chicago.

18 Jul 2018 03:22:59
no. hell no from chicago. are you drunk? take out the second and add from there from montreal if you want boqvist.

18 Jul 2018 05:39:49
Whoever thinks Chicago should take this should re-evaluate themselves lol.

18 Jul 2018 12:07:54
Add from mtl? You are kidding. pacioretty. who in last 5 yrs has more goals than kessel. , neal or van reimsdyk for a guy no one knows?

18 Jul 2018 12:54:49
@Balsam. Boqvist was just drafted 8th overall and at seasons end in April, he was ranked #9 on the ISS draft rankings. At the same time, kotkaniemi was ranked 18th. So would you trade him and a pick for a 1 year of an almost 30 year old coming off an awful year?! Because 2 months ago, no one besides really informed people knew him either.

18 Jul 2018 14:18:33
Balsam is the Montreal Rambo. Maybe when you don’t know who the players are in a trade proposal, you should keep your comments to yourself.

15 Jul 2018 00:27:55
Three-way trade, not necessary but might speed things up.
Chicago fans want Panarin back and it seems that maybe he wants to go back.

Pacioretty is not been offered an extension by the Habs and is on the trading block.

Chicago --> Panarin, 3rd round pick 2019(From Blue Jackets)

CBJ --> Pacioretty, Nicolas Beaudin (From Chicago) and 1st round pick (From Chicago)

MTL --> Liam Foudy, 2nd (2020) and 4th round pick (2019) (from Blue Jackets)

Look, If you guys might tell what you would change, I'd appreciate it! For me, I think it looks good, I'm no GM but I want respectful and constructive comments! Thanks

15 Jul 2018 03:55:55
Overall not terrible. Although, Columbus easily gets the best return, I think montreal would want something a lil bit more (say a more proven prospect than foody).

15 Jul 2018 04:53:49
Habs need more of a return on Pacioretty.

17 Jul 2018 01:06:24
if chicago doesn't bounce back and have a kick ass season like their old form i can see them being bottom 15 again, with chance at lottery pick, i don't know about potential top 10 draft pick for panarin, unless we put lottery protection on the pick.

14 Jul 2018 02:26:04
Chi: 2019 1st, Jokiharju, 2nd 2020
CBJ: Panarin

14 Jul 2018 07:35:13
1. Not enough
2. Cap?

14 Jul 2018 11:43:35
I agree not enough, but they have cap from the Hossa trade.

15 Jul 2018 07:34:29
I know, but not enough as I pointed out in the post below.

15 Jul 2018 15:10:23
Yes they do triplets, they can add panarin and have room from their cheap guys from the minor, one website says over 10 mil without those players and another has those players added and says over 6 mil so pretty sure there is room but barely.

05 Jul 2018 18:55:59
Chicago: Keith
Sikura
Saad
Rutta

Ottawa: Karlsson

05 Jul 2018 21:48:07
oh god.

06 Jul 2018 10:51:23
Bruh...

20 Jun 2018 00:13:16
Montreal trades: Pacioretty, 2nd round pick, 3rd round pick 2019

Chicago: 8th overall

18 Jun 2018 03:15:03
To CHI
Hoffman
Rights to RFA Claesson

To OTT
8th overall

Chicago gets to go for cup again. Draft won’t help with their age, , Hoffman does and they can use cheap, reliable young D.

Ottawa gets Zadina at 4 and Walhstrom at 8 and has rebuilt. Sign Wideman and EK.

Everyone’s happy! . Except Montreal who has Domi instead of Gally.

18 Jun 2018 15:04:00
That dosent get 8th overall.

19 Jun 2018 11:25:50
It definitely does get at least 8th overall vbbvbb.

15 Jun 2018 20:52:17
OTT: Hoffman, 22nd ovr
CHI: Hossa, 8th ovr

Chicago clears a small amount of cap space but actually gets some use out of it. Could even flip him.

Ottawa gets two top 10 picks and takes on cap space, but only has to pay an actual salary of 200k to Hossa.

16 Jun 2018 00:10:38
Hossa is on LTIR he has no cap hit.

16 Jun 2018 03:06:38
They can clear cap space by placing him in on ltir.

16 Jun 2018 12:02:33
hoffman > hossa at this point, it's better to have someone that can actually help. i understand that point.
8th overall > 22nd overall.
i highly highly doubt chicago would move down that far, especially out of top 10, just to save cap space that they could just clear by using LITR instead. Even if both were playing i don't see the difference between hossa and hoffman to be that great to justify moving down 14 spots outside of top 10.

17 Jun 2018 15:22:42
no from ottawa

11 Jun 2018 16:53:46
OTT: karlsson(extended)

TB: Mcdonagh Johnson 2019 1st

11 Jun 2018 17:43:30
Lmao wtf you’re a sens fan and that’s what you want for a return for karlsson?

11 Jun 2018 19:04:08
Bro you're def not a sens fan. All those trades are horrific for Ottawa

11 Jun 2018 19:23:44
Rambo is not going to be happy with your proposal Sensfan. It would be Kucherov, Hedman and a 1st in the eyes of John Rambo.

11 Jun 2018 19:28:13
Teravainen is worth way more.

11 Jun 2018 19:41:19
If the sens can extend Karlsson why would they trade him.

13 Jun 2018 22:42:51
For once I agree with vbbvbb which is so weird. only one that would be workable is the Smith trade, the rest are trash.

11 Jun 2018 05:19:49
Chicago doesn't wanna lose obviously and i think they will be agressive in the upcoming draft and free agents signings. I have some realistic ideas for hawks fans.

To CHI:
• Jason Demers
To ARI:
• Brent Seabrook
• 8th Overall Pick
• Dylan Sikura

To CHI:
• Alex Galchenyuk
To MTL:
• Artem Anisimov
• 3rd Round Pick

To CHI:
• Sam Bennett
To CGY:
• Anthony Duclair

Chicago signs James Van Riemsdyk and Calvin De Haan.


Brandon Saad - Jonathan Toews - Alex DeBrincat
Alex Galchenyuk - Nick Schmaltz - Patrick Kane
James Van Riemsdyk - Sam Bennett - Patrick Sharp
Tomas Jurco - David Kampf - Andreas Martinsen

Duncan Keith - Connor Murphy
Erik Gustafsson - Jason Demers
Jordan Oesterle - Calvin De Haan

11 Jun 2018 06:54:28
hahahahaha galchenyuk for anisimov and 3rd lollll dream on.

ansimov is 30 and had about 30 points last year galchenyuk is 24, u crazy?

11 Jun 2018 07:53:57
seabrook, sikura and 8th overall for demers? i get that seabrook's contract sucks but a top 10 draft pick to compensate for demers? if i'm giving away a top 10 draft pick i'd want something better in return.

11 Jun 2018 09:14:12
Seabrooks contract is humungous pkane88.

11 Jun 2018 19:37:44
You said this is realistic. Are you sure about that?

15 Jun 2018 18:39:05
listen all the experts are warning montreal not to trade galchenyuk, so why are you alway under evaluating him, the reason he is in so many trade rumor is everybody wants him.

10 Jun 2018 22:48:58

11 Jun 2018 02:49:18
Not a chance I’d take on seabrooks contract without top prospects and 1st round picks coming back. To trade a good top 4 Dman in Jake Gardiner who only makes 4 mill to take on an older top 4 Dman, with a ton of hard miles on him and a contract at almost $7mill taking him till he’s like 40 is suicide for a team with all that young talent.

11 Jun 2018 08:27:41
Horrible trade for the Hurricanes.

Hahahahahahahaha both Carolina and Toronto block Chicago’s number and release this god awful proposal to the public to laugh at aswell.

07 Jun 2018 11:11:57
Apparently the Blackhawks won't tolerate being bad this year and will make a massive offer for Tavares. Also Ducks have requested Perry's no trade list and the Pens are looking to trade Kessel.
I got a couple trades i can think of.

To CHI
• John Tavares
To NYI
• Nick Schmaltz
• Corey Crawford
• Alex DeBrincat

To CHI
• Corey Perry
To ANA
• 1st Round Pick
• Artem Anisimov

To CHI
• Phil Kessel
To PIT
• Brent Seabrook
• Anthony Duclair

To CHI
• Sam Bennett
To CGY
• John Hayden
• 2nd Round Pick

Brandon Saad - Jonathan Toews - Patrick Kane
Phil Kessel - John Tavares - Corey Perry
Tomas Jurco - Sam Bennett - Patrick Sharp
Vince Hinostroza - David Kampf - Andreas Martinsen

Imagine those lines!!!!!

07 Jun 2018 12:29:06
Trade 1 - Let's trade our future and the franchise goalie for a twenty extra days to convince JT to sign

Trade 2 - Future young star for aging overpayed winger

Trade 3 - C'mon it's 2018, not 2010. Seabrook's contract in one of the worst in the league, adding Duclair only lessens the nagative value and you want an NHL Top10 scoring forward in return? (and slot him on his off wing)

Trade 4 - This one only is close to fair.


Sharp has retired, Martinsen is a UFA and propably won't be back. Also who is Hawks starting goalie in this scenario?

07 Jun 2018 13:56:43
1) salary cap
2) giving away futures much?

07 Jun 2018 21:17:08
So what happens after John Tavares refuses to sign in Chicago then resigns in New York after they get those premium assets?

02 Jun 2018 22:00:37
Sources saying Blackhawks won't tolerate being bad again and will make a huge offer for Tavares. But they need to shed cap obviously before they can do that.

#1 Trade
To AZ:
• Marian Hossa (Dump)
• 8th Overall
• Matthew Highmore
To CHI:
• Future Considerations

#2 Trade
To NYI:
• Corey Crawford
• Alex Debrincat
• Artem Anisimov
• 2nd Round Pick
To CHI:
• John Tavares (verbal agreement to resign)

#3 Trade
To PIT:
• Connor Murphy
• 2019 1st Round Pick
• Anthony Duclair
To CHI:
• Phil Kessel

Projected Line-up Chicago

Brandon Saad - Jonathan Toews - Patrick Kane
Tomas Jurco - John Tavares - Phil Kessel
Andreas Martinsen - Nick Schmaltz - Patrick Sharp

02 Jun 2018 22:28:22
100% won't happen.
Chicago is declining and should just start a complete rebuild.
Keith, Seabrook are old. Toews is now a 50-55 point player, Saad sucks, and Kane is by himself.

If they even DO sign Tavares (and they wont) Does that mean Toews will be a second line center? He earns like 10.5 million per season. Not happening.

Also, there's no way Chicago trades the 8th overall for absolutely nothing. ''Future Considerations'' is nothing. Even if it means getting rid of Hossa's contract.

Phil Kessel is worth more than a top 4 defenceman, a bottom 6 forward and a pick that might be anywhere from 1-15. They won't trade Kessel for to gamble on the lottery.

They’d be giving up a lot of youth and probably get worse. Not a good idea for Chicago IMO.

You also barely cleaned out any cap considering Johnny T going to get atleast 10 mil and kessel is around 6 or so?

1. You can put Hossa on LTIR because of his skin condition so his cap hit dosent go against the cap so there goes that deal. Not very well thought out.

2.Why wouldn’t they just sign him for free that deal is silly at most his rights are worth a 2nd round pick tops

3. How does this make the pens better in anyway?

Terrible post.

FIrst trade is brutal. Can just place Hossa on LTIR.

And definite no to the NYI trade. No need to get a verbal agreement at this time; either try to sign him on July 1st or dont. No need to give up that many assets.

Third trade imo is underwhelming for Phil, but i genuinelly don't think CHI should want/ need him.

OTT: Brent Seabrook, #8,#27, 2019 2nd
CHI: Bobby Ryan, Alex Burrows, Mike Condon, #5

Bad contracts flip. OTT trades down where they can still get a good defenseman. Ryan might do well in Chicago with Kane if he can stay healthy. Two forward spots for youngsters open up in Ottawa. Ottawa could package the Chi and Pit pick to move up in the first.

Sorry. that should be #4.

Ottawa laughs at this and hangs up. Ottawa in no way sacrifices the 4th to move Ryan, especially not for that return lol. Ryan is a much bigger asset to his team than Seabrook is and Seabrook is one of the worst contracts in the league and yes is a much worst over payment than Ryan.

The objective is to make our current situation better, NOT worse.

to Florida
Saad

to Chicago
Mamin
2nd

Florida has good center depth but are lacking on the wing. Saad's contract is probably something Chicago would like to get rid of, but can be handled by a team like Florida with their core all signed long term.
