Looked it up, clost is an anagram of colt. clever.

14 Feb 2018 18:09:59
Oilers need a right hand damn who can play power play. Suggestions:
Oilers: RNH + Benning (maybe + 3rd Rd Pk)
Wild: Coyle + Spurgeon or Dumba
RNH would be a perfect for the wild. Their current centremen: Koivu and stall (both older and trending down, especially koivu) and coyle who is a good 3rd line centre, and EK who is young.
Spurgeon would look great with Sekera. Coyle 3rd centerman after McDavid and Drai.

Another option:
Oilers: Klefbom or RNH
Avs: Barrie
I believe that Avs have some good young right handed dman coming up. Barrie could be on his way out. They could use Klefbom on the left side. Or maybe they could use RNH on the second line after Macinnon. I prefer the Klefbom and Barrie’s swap.

14 Feb 2018 21:16:08
Sorry, Trade 1 Way OTL. None of those Wild players are an upgrade for Edmonton. Benning + 3rd for ONE of those players is probably more realistic.

Trade 2, No RNH but Klefbom for Barrie sounds realistic if the Av's put a high pick in to offset Klefbom's longer term cap friendly contract. or perhaps Edm would be content if the Av's ate 1.4M of Barrie's salary so they cost the same and edm takes the asset loss of the extra years of cap friendly service to fill the RHD need.

14 Feb 2018 22:01:00
So Spurgeon or Dumba are not an upgrade on Benning? Go and search the players playing time and stats, and then decide. Oilers need a power play dman.

14 Feb 2018 22:19:53
Pretty good. I think the RNH for Barrie one is pretty close. I think oilers might have to add a bit to klefbom just based on recent play, I think his value has taken a bit of a hit. Although 5 more years of control on klefbom at 4.1 mill vs 2 more years at 5.5 for Barrie may be enough to balance that out.

14 Feb 2018 22:24:58
You’re ridiculous FT4A. So Carrick plus a 3rd gets a top 4 dman or top 9 power forward? Or does it only work for Oiler players? How are these players not an upgrade for Edmonton? Please explain.

14 Feb 2018 22:30:40
Both defenseman are better offensively than anyone on the Oiler roster. Spurgeon or Dumba would fit nice on the Oiler blue line. Get your head out of your ass and realize they are bottom feeders in need for a change. A few very talented players, yes. After that you don’t have much of an argument.

14 Feb 2018 23:14:57
Jeez leafs why so angry
But ya if Edmonton could trade for Dumba that would be lit.

14 Feb 2018 23:20:38
I don’t think the aves would be interested in RNH, they have McKinnon and next year Jost. I’d say they have a pretty good 1-2 punch now and Hopkins is expensive 3rd liner. Value wise it’s pretty good just don’t see the need for aves. Also I’m positive I’m not the only one thinking this but LBRN needs to get a clue! You’re such a oilers homer it’s crazy.

I understand you’re a oilers fan and no one wants to see their team lose a trade but your opinions are just ridiculous! You need to stop watching hockey if you think that Benning and a 3rd will be you dumba or Spurgeon.

14 Feb 2018 23:30:34
RNH > Coyle
Benning + 3rd.

14 Feb 2018 23:31:00
Personally I think the left hand versus right hand defenseman argument is overrated one of the best defensive teams in NHL history had 5 left-handed defenseman in one right handed guy who was a spare part.

14 Feb 2018 23:33:38
Benning + pick / add for any ONE of the Wild players mentioned is a reasonable parallel trade. All those wild players are pretty average at best, but so is Benning.

Unfortunately as soon as you try to name RNH in the trade the VETO / Abort button lights up and gets hit. You will have to name a different player in the trade other than him.

As explained in a previous post that it seems mr/ ms Leafs17 for some reason still can't grasp the concept of is he is a core piece that plays hard minutes in all the difficult situations, is long term signed, is a fan favorite, is only 24 with 441 games of experience already.

Most importantly. The GM would probably lose his job trading him as he is on VERY thin ice over the Eberle asset liquidation last year. The teammates, GM, and coaching staff are all on record emphasizing how valuable RNH is to the team so throwing him in for a few average players back won't cut it.
It is doubtful he will get traded unless an elite #1 D-man is dangled of which Barrie, Spergeon, and Dumba are definitely not.

Trade 2

Oilers with the big $$ signings last year can't take on a Salary increase next season, so Barrie retention, or 2nd roster player (s) to offset the salary difference would need to be in the Klefbom for Barrie deal. This does sound like a realistic trade that might need a minor tweak.

I agree that Klefbom's poor play has diminished his value.

14 Feb 2018 23:44:28
Sorry McJ, FT4A has been trolling for too long. This is the same guy that values every oilers player above and beyond anyone in the league. Hopkins and Benning would require Karlsson just to get the conversation started.

15 Feb 2018 04:01:20
Who is FT4A? Leafs17, you got the wrong guy. How am I over valuing the oilers in this trade?
Plus, what the hell do u mean with your comments about karlson? I’m sorry man but you are making no sense here.

15 Feb 2018 04:14:32
Spurgeon and Dumba not being an upgrade on Benning is officially the dumbest argument of the week! Unbelievable. And yes leafs17, this is the same guy who said only way RNH could end up in Ottawa is if it was for Karlsson!

15 Feb 2018 05:12:23
FT4A/ let's be real now lost all credibility with that nonsense last year when Karlsson was a top 5 player in the league. Now he’s just making sure the credibility never has a chance to return.

15 Feb 2018 07:15:34
Sorry Oil fan, my comments were towards Let’s Be Real Now (FT4A) . Your proposals were ok. FT4A changed his name but still spews the same garbage. The veto comment is exactly the way FT4A would speak.

15 Feb 2018 14:11:54
Oh! Thanks for the clarification. Appreciate it!

15 Feb 2018 16:11:29
Not sure what an FT4A is. ? Is that special code for something?

Sorry if there is a disagreement from the Eastern biased peanut gallery over this, but realistically that trade won't go. Benning + pick for one of those players is a decent realistic trade. Trade listed improves Minni, but Edmonton loses big time overall.

If RNH is going to be moved, I suspect it would be a 2 or 3 asset by Edmonton for 1 asset back type deal netting a #1 Dman or 1st line player to compliment McD. Not for 2nd pair / 3rd liners. Edmonton already is loaded with those types of players.

15 Feb 2018 20:08:42
Wild and avalanche say no.

15 Feb 2018 23:28:54
So how is coyle/ Dumba/ Spurgeon not worth more then rnh they actually play for a winning team and have staal granlund koivu sucker suter praise nino (not attempting that last name) and still put up good stats. Edmonton sucks they have Mcdavid and drai but drai is way overrated imo so keep your garbage nobody wants em you will draft high again and lose because you’re a horribly managed team.

16 Feb 2018 00:14:31
FT4A is the name you used to use and aren’t man enough to admit it. You know this big guy. And yes, madeindade, chirello will just f it up anyway. Sit back and watch the show.

12 Feb 2018 21:34:23
Just a wild thought.

Waive Martin

12 Feb 2018 22:31:28
Don’t need a scoring winger in patches. That’s actually the last position leafs need help with, they actually have so much depth there that they already have guys asking for trades out.

You don’t trade a good top 4 Dmen for futures when you are entering the playoffs with a young team and you have no one for sure ready to assume that role.

Leafs are going to have to play Boston and/ or Tampa in best of 7 game series. We have loads of talent, but not many guys that are really hard to play against up front. If the return for a great penalty killing, hard nosed veteran forward who has played almost 20 minutes a night multiple times this season again teams top lines is a 3rd rounder, why the hell would you trade him?! Komarov has to stay unless a team that feels they’re a depth forward away from a cup wants to really over pay.

Waiving martin accomplishes nothing, Because his cap stays on the books anyway and no one will claim him.

13 Feb 2018 00:59:02
Why waive Martin tho.

13 Feb 2018 02:55:11
Hell no from mtl.

13 Feb 2018 18:26:30
Montreal hangs up the phone. after they are done laughing.

13 Feb 2018 21:35:37
Wow balsam, you didn’t even insult Marleau in that one. You’re growing lol.

14 Feb 2018 00:27:00
balsam only replies to leaf posts and it’s always something negative. It’s sad that the leafs have such terrible players yet do so well eh balsy?

08 Feb 2018 22:17:50
Skinner is now on the TSN top 40 trade bait list so here it goes

Col: Barrie

Car: Skinner

To me, the value is pretty fair even though Carolina doesn't need defenseman

09 Feb 2018 00:57:53
Value is fair but makes no sense for Carolina but it would make sense to a team like Toronto

2nd round pick

4th round pick.

09 Feb 2018 01:23:50
you explained why it's not believable in your post. value wise okay, but carolina doesn't need defensemen so why would they do this?

09 Feb 2018 01:30:52
yeah. i don't see a situation where they're trading for another Defence.

09 Feb 2018 01:58:55
I don't think they would want a D man back. They are looking pretty good on the back end and I would say they want pick prospect for forward depth.

09 Feb 2018 03:07:52
Not too bad value wise but Carolina doesn’t need D and they do need scoring. Doesn’t make a lot of sense.

09 Feb 2018 03:34:33
Value is there too bad Carolina has 0 reason to make this trade, as you said lol.

09 Feb 2018 05:55:39
Haha I like how somebody just only disagrees with my comments lol salty.

08 Feb 2018 16:56:58
N. Meloche + 3rd 2019 for E. Gudbranson

N. Zadorov + 1st 2018 + A. Greer for R. McDonagh

Colorado has a deadly defense in a couple years to pair with their budding offensive stars.
Vancouver gets a decent defense prospect and a decent pick for Gudbranson, probably one of the better packages they'll get offered.
Rangers get some great peices to retool. Zadorov is already a top 4 d man and Greer is showing top 9 potential. The pick is in a stacked draft. McDonagh is a borderline elite defenseman but I don't see them getting a much better package than this

08 Feb 2018 22:36:12
No from Colorado IMO.

03 Feb 2018 12:06:09
Sekera, Maroon

Tyson Barrie

03 Feb 2018 13:42:08
Definite no from Colorado.

03 Feb 2018 15:12:20
Might get you barrie's stick.

30 Jan 2018 03:25:40
Col: Landescog


30 Jan 2018 04:06:43
Is there a Carlson on Columbus that I don’t know about Colt? There used to be a Karlsson that is now in Vegas.

30 Jan 2018 10:07:43
it’s gabriel carlson.

30 Jan 2018 12:43:30
Oh thanks.

30 Jan 2018 12:45:44
Grabriel Carlson is one of the best defensive prospect in the league. I know this reply was meant yo make me look silly but you did that for youself bud.

30 Jan 2018 13:28:30
U also spelt landeskogs name wrong so perhaps leave it alone.

30 Jan 2018 15:18:41
“One of the best defensive prospects”. Lol are you serious? They’re are so many better better defense prospects.

30 Jan 2018 17:01:49
Colt you make yourself look silly in about 98% of the posts you make including your last comment lol.

30 Jan 2018 17:32:04
My reply was simply a question, no intentions what so ever.

26 Jan 2018 15:11:27
2018 1st (COL) + S. Girard + C. Morrisson for R. McDonagh

Pretty out there idea but I could see the Rangers entertaining an offer like this. Colorado would do this to get their staple on defense. In order for them to be a championship contender they need someone to play against top lines and right now I wouldn't trust anyone except maybe Johnson to be able to consistently play against top lines. They have enough young peices to afford to lose these ones

26 Jan 2018 15:42:11
Way too much, tbh.

26 Jan 2018 16:24:56
Girard has been hugeness for the Avs so he'll no from Colorado.

26 Jan 2018 18:11:39
Ok but is the idea ok? Maybe replace Girard with Zadorov?

25 Jan 2018 17:48:00
Col:MacKinnon,cap dump

Mtl:Price,Patches,Mete,Lekonen,2 rd pick 2018,Byron

25 Jan 2018 18:02:46
Bro what.

25 Jan 2018 18:04:50
After waiting 3-4 years, he has just established himself as one of the best players in the game. They aren’t moving him now lol.

25 Jan 2018 18:21:56
Hahahahaha man but like why would Montreal even do that.

25 Jan 2018 18:43:42
As much as I like price I don’t see why aves would trade their top centerman whose young and if he keeps up the scoring pace is on arguably one of the best contracts in the league. McKinnon is more valuable to the aves than price would be them, especially now that duchene is gone.

25 Jan 2018 18:57:18
Lol. why the hell would Habs trade both Price and Patches plus 4 other peices for MacKinnon? Yes he is good. but ya can't trade your most importan't peice in Price.
And who is this cap dump? Better be Barrie. and more.

25 Jan 2018 22:17:30
No from Colorado
Mac is a franchise plauer and is just 22.

25 Jan 2018 15:35:33
Phi gets Bobby Ryan, Zack Smith
Ott gets Ryan O'Reilly, Jordan Weal
Buf gets Travis Sandheim, Phi 2nd

Ryan will be inspired in Philly, provide extra scoring for playoff push. Smith provides playoff grit.. Ottawa reunites Duchene and O'Reilly who were at one time dynamic in Colorado. At the very least they will be very strong on faceoffs to help boost their sad puck control. Buf gets high end D prospect and a pick and rids themselves of long expensive contract from previous management. Ottawa future plans not affected much as they replace Ryan's contract with O'Reilly's.

25 Jan 2018 15:56:06
So Philadelphia trades Weal (6 G, 8 A in 42 GP $1.75MM until 2019), Sanheim, and a 2nd for Bobby Ryan (6 G, 13 A in 36 GP $7.25MM until 2022)?

Ryan's contract is pure cancer and he leaves a lot to be desired as a player - inconsistent, injury prone, lacking in intensity. The Senators are stuck with Ryan for a long, long time.

25 Jan 2018 17:28:06
Lolllllll Ottawa literally robs everyone.

25 Jan 2018 18:13:46
And buffalo trades oreilly for Sanheim and a 2nd?! Ok.

25 Jan 2018 21:44:12
Philly gets Zack Smith too.

25 Jan 2018 21:45:43
I'd say weal goes to buffalo instead with a 3rd and that 2nd goes to ottawa, the rest sounds good though.

Easy E I honestly think you need to do some research before commenting from now on.

Bobby Ryan -
You say injury prone - lately yes

Lacking intensity - sometimes yes sometimes no he's like kovalev

Inconsistent - not even close, outside of last season when he was plagued by health issues and injuries he has been a 60 point per year player and will be again when he gets by his soft hands.

25 Jan 2018 22:24:12
NBR, Ryan sucks. Get over it.

30 Jan 2018 10:43:55
TSS, you know Ryan does NOT suck. If he sucks then so do guys like toews Duchene turris marner voracek Schwartz etc as his stat totals are in the same ball park so you tell me. do they all suck to?

24 Jan 2018 17:00:29


24 Jan 2018 17:20:21
No way Colorado breaks up Landy-Mack-Rantanen. they're playing so damn good.

24 Jan 2018 17:48:33
this has to be habs.

24 Jan 2018 19:00:16
That was quite funny. Patches + Julsen for Landescog makes zero sense! First, the Habs needs a center and second, I wouldn't give Patch alone for Landescog much less with Julsen.

26 Jan 2018 20:36:14
I wiuldnt do that trade. mtl gives up another young d-man? Burnt before. Not worth it.

20 Jan 2018 05:09:36
This one just popped up in my head and I think makes since

Toronto- werenski

Columbus- 1st round pick 2018


Toronto- zadorov

Colorado-kapanen, 3rd round pick

: Toronto gets 2 great young defencemen and still doesn't quite fill the number 1 role that gives them a solid top 4

20 Jan 2018 05:17:03
1st for a future #1 d man (already top pairing d man), definately not. Werenski is a star in the making, it’ll take Marner or Nylander to pry him away.

20 Jan 2018 06:42:39
Are you nuts?

Have you watched hockey?

My god.

Toronto fans.

20 Jan 2018 06:45:23
To the first one, As a leafs fan, I say “let’s do it! ”
As a rational hockey fan I say “get real”

The second one might be decent value because zadorov is an NHL Dman and kapanen is probably a middle six forward on a lot of teams. I just think there’s plenty of other D I’d rather pursue if I’m Toronto and willing to part with a good young player and a pick.

20 Jan 2018 08:12:28
It sure makes sense, yes. Just for TOR tho.

20 Jan 2018 08:57:29
I could be wrong hammer but I’m going out on a wing here and going to say a flames fan posted that.

20 Jan 2018 11:52:10
That’s a type of dman the leafs would consider trading Marner/ Nylander for not Dougie Hamilton.

20 Jan 2018 16:51:00
Oof, hell no from Columbus.

20 Jan 2018 17:29:16

15 Jan 2018 19:31:13
Tyson Jost
Nail Yakupov


15 Jan 2018 19:34:16
This is funny only because yak is in it.

15 Jan 2018 19:34:43
Big yes from mtl!

15 Jan 2018 20:58:24
Come on man, Let's be real now.
Why would Colorado even consider this for one year of Pacciorety? Let's be real now, You have the funniest ganame maybe ever on here.
MontrealsFinest is still the legend.

15 Jan 2018 21:28:16
The realism of the situation is that Colorado is right on the playoff cusp and Paccoretti could be the push needed to get the Av's to the playoffs THIS YEAR. Paccoretti has this year and next so we can call it a year and a half on his contract.

So short answer. Avs would consider this because they want to get into the playoffs this year.

15 Jan 2018 21:42:54
Colorado blocks all 173939020 of Bergevins numbers.

15 Jan 2018 22:15:50
Lets be real now the next FT4A?

15 Jan 2018 22:54:49
Colorado 100% should not make this and your reasoning for making the playoffs this year is irrelevant. They aren’t going to win this year so why give up young assets especially prized ones like Jost.

16 Jan 2018 03:38:01
Morgan Rielly isn’t a fair comparison to Faulk a better one would be Erik Johnson.

16 Jan 2018 06:55:37
montreal would take this and run. colorado would block montreal's number. hell no dude. patches is not worth that!

16 Jan 2018 16:35:16
I think you’re on the wrong rumour, Nylander lol but I will quickly respond anyway, Rielly is probably pretty close comparison. We think of rielly as being better because he’s so much better than the rest we have, but just because Faulk is one of many good D on the canes, doesn’t mean his individual value takes a hit.

16 Jan 2018 17:53:29
So consensus is Montreal fans LOVE the trade and jump at it, and Non Habs fans say Habs have add to the deal to get Jost, and for Colorado to dump yakupov whom the habs have shown an interest in the past.

Sure is a Tough crowd on this site.

Ok so what do YOU all think needs to get added by Montreal to attain Jost's 8 point performance so far this year for a proven sniper who's having a little bit of an off year with 25 pts?

16 Jan 2018 19:01:04
Of course Montreal fans love the trade because they are winning it. Lol. Common sense is hard hey.

09 Jan 2018 00:47:02
The Canucks making a little roster makeover
trade 1
Canucks: Gudbranson and a 3rd
Leafs: Kapanen
Leafs are looking to add D Gudbranson is the perfect guy, Canucks need more speed
trade 2
Canucks: Hutton
Penguins: 2018 3rd round pick
The Penguins need some depth dmen Hutton doesn't fit with the Canucks
trade 3
Canucks: Vanek and 2018 5th round pick
Avalanche: 2018 2nd round pick
Solid rental pick up for a team looking to make a playoff push
trade 4
Canucks: Chris Tanev
Golden Knights: 2018 first round pick
The Golden Knights don't have any top 4 dman and the Canucks add to their plethora of draft picks.
trade 5
Canucks: Nilsson
Flames: 3rd round pick
The Flames need a backup goalie and the Canucks have Demko to fill the role

The Canucks add a plethora of draft picks/ prospects without losing too valuable of pieces and still have plenty of solid Defensmans

Gaunce - Chaput

Edler - Stecher
Pouliot - Del Zotto
Biega - Holm


09 Jan 2018 02:55:50
Do you know where Vegas 1st is, no matter where they finish? It's 3rd overall, I believe. No matter what.
Tanev isn't worth a top 5 pick.

09 Jan 2018 04:03:53
Vegas picks wherever they end up by placement in playoffs.
Wouldn't say Canucks have solid defense, they are hurting everywhere.
I am a lifelong Canuck fan and it is a bit embarrassing how bad the defense is.

09 Jan 2018 09:57:40
Trade 1
No~ Leafs Value Kapanen more than just Gudbranson and a 3rd
trade 2
Canucks: Hutton
Penguins: 2018 3rd round pick
Maybe? But Hutton doesn't have very much playoff exp to attract interest from a serious contender.
trade 3
Canucks: Vanek and 2018 5th round pick
Avalanche: 2018 2nd round pick
No~ Not for a 2nd round, remember the Avalanche are basically still rebuilding and are not going to throw away high picks for a unlikely chance at a playoff run this year.
trade 4
Canucks: Chris Tanev
Golden Knights: 2018 first round pick
No. Just No, on so many levels! Knights are doing just fine without giving up a First Rounder, esp for injury an prone Chris Tanev, Canucks would be lucky to get a second for the guy.
trade 5
Canucks: Nilsson
Flames: 3rd round pick
LOL, No~ The Flames Don't need a backup goalie (esp Nilsson) When they have David Rittich right now, as well as Jon Gillies and Tyler Parsons (2015-2016 Memorial Cup Champion, CHL Memorial Cup Most Outstanding Goaltender, OHL Champion/ OHL Lowest Team GAA (Dave Pinkney Trophy. 2016-2017 WJC Gold Medal, OHL Best SVS% (.925) ) .
Both now playing in the AHL. Especially for a 3rd for Nilsson? Canucks would be lucky to get a 5th for that dude now!

09 Jan 2018 12:40:52
Toronto says no.

09 Jan 2018 13:13:26
I believe vegas pick can be 1st to 6th even if they won the presidents trophy and the cup, which I highly doubt lol. They don’t get handed 3rd overall, they’re in the lottery but are given the SAME ODDS as the third worst team regardless where they finish, I believe that’s what the rule was. But yeah, they’re keeping that pick! Especially since o don’t think they can sell as many assets for more picks at the deadline like I assume they planned on a few months ago.

09 Jan 2018 13:53:58
Oh ya. I think they are given the 3rd overall lottery chances. Not just straight up 3rd overall. I knew it was basically top 5. No matter where they end up.
For the first three years of their existence too.

09 Jan 2018 20:53:52
Yeah. Still too good of a pick to give up for a team lacking skill. As good as they have been, they have done it on will and spite. Eventually lack of skill comes into play. With the 3 kids they got in the 1st round last year, a cpl prospects they took as bribes (theadore etc) and that’s top 5 pick, they could be a contender quicker than anyone thought.

09 Jan 2018 23:57:49
And Gillies doesn't have very good AHL numbers and your saying WJ champion he played horrible that tournament lol and you think he can play in the NHL perhaps this isn't the best team to deal too and maybe he would only get a 4th but he's still a solid backup on a good contract so.

09 Jan 2018 23:53:07
IF Vegas gets 3rd pick automatically then make that a seond round pick if vegas picks 3rd in the second round also and replying to frozen puck
trade 1
Well i'm hearing Kapanens name in rumours and top 4 D are hard to get
trade 2
Im getting the 3rd round pick as a comparable to the Beaulieu trade very similar skill sets this is also what JD Burke thought they would get in return
trade 3
The Avalanche don't need more prospects and they could make a playoff push but they need more scoring and a pp specialist
trade 4
top 4 I've never seen a top 4 dman at a pretty young age get a 2nd round pick or worse they always get at least a first and the injury prone thing that's bullcrap he's just unlucky with injuries and he's never injured the same thing so there's not really many risks
trade 5
Ritttich barely has any NHL experience and had abad save % in the playoffs last year and Parson lmao he has a horrible sv% in the ECHL are you high.

No, your Just Wrong on most everything you suggest, unless you have Canuck Rosey glasses on. Both Rittich (Better) (2W-1L in the playoffs last year) and Gillies (close but not as good) AHL Save% than Demco. Parsons as a 19/ 20 year old rookie with only 19 games in the ECHL is Hardly worth worrying about in contrast to playing and winning against the best young players in the world and in the Memorial cup. Besides Every goalie in the ECHL has pretty poor numbers. That is why its the ECHL.
Calgary doesn't need or want Nilsson esp an Over pay for a bench warmer, simple as that. The reason Calgary Dumped Eddie Lack was because all three young goalies in their system out performed him, So by~by Lack.
Reality is COL isn't going to give up a second for a rental player this year, that's Delusional.
I live in Vancouver, So I know how Injury prone Tanev is thanks, plus I don't think he has as much Value as he once did a couple years ago especially to Vegas for a First? That is La~La Crazy. Besides Tanev has a M-NTC.
But go ahead and make more lop-sided trades and get record High "Unbelievable" numbers! Cheers~!

CGY - 3rd Round Pick + Adam Ollas Mattsson
COL - Nail Yakupov

Calgary gets a decent RW with a good shot (a need) & Colorado gets a pick and a big defensive prospect who is also only 21.

Adam Ollas Mattsson
6'5 220lbs
Age: 21

J Gaudreau - S Monahan - M Ferland
M Tkachuk - M Backlund - M Frolik
S Bennett - M Jankowski - N Yakupov

04 Jan 2018 06:15:08
Lmao you want yak.

04 Jan 2018 09:08:42
Better than Brouwer. Yak has a good shot and could be useful on the pp

05 Jan 2018 03:52:33
Are you even a Flames fan. WAAAAYYY to much for another small mediocre winger we don’t need.

17 Dec 2017 21:32:51
If karlsson were to have to be traded.

Karlsson, Hoffman, brassard

Pietrangelo, taresenko, sobotka


Ryan, Paul


Landeskog Duchene taresenko
Smith Brown Stone
Sobotka pageau pyatt
Burrows Thompson dzingle

Chabot pietrangelo
Phaneuf Ceci
Any combo of
Wideman claeson borvievski harpur oduya

Stl downgrade taresenko to upgrade both pietrangelo and sobotka

Lol and put swap slightly over paid stars and ottawa sweetened the deal by adding Paul to get landeskog as he has had chemistry with Duchene in the past.

17 Dec 2017 23:29:14
To me Pietrangelo is the better and younger defence man Stl say son.

18 Dec 2017 00:03:56
Huge no from blues petro and tarasenko make together just a little more than what karlson will command in another year. Petro is signed at 6.5 for next 3 years and 5 years of tarasenko for 7.5.

No reason blues do this.

18 Dec 2017 00:10:24
I don't think STL even considers that.

18 Dec 2017 00:23:21
No from St. Louis.

18 Dec 2017 01:26:05
To the guy who said pietrangelo was better, where do you buy your drugs from?
Only 2 players in the world can be considered better than karlsson and their names are Connor mcdavid and Sidney Crosby. sorry to burst your bubble buddy.

The comment about cap hits has a solid argument but think of it this way, karlsson contract for pietrangelo contract both after karlsson resign = roughly 12.5 to 13 million vs 6.5 million. now think what jay boumeester will be leaving on the table when his contract is up, isn't his over played deal worth like 6.85 million. use the extra there to sign karlsson. then they save roughly 2.4 million on the Hoffman taresenko exchange but still get a top line winger at a cheaper rate. not quite sure what sobotka makes so I can't really compare that but brassard is still an upgrade on him.

Yup, any team that doesn't consider trading for karlsson if he were available should be in search of new management team. no way stl don't consider this. lol.

18 Dec 2017 03:27:23
There is a lot to consider when trading for a guy like Karlsson. yes. the money and term. however, he also changes he whole dynamic of your team. even as a Dman, he is one of the most talented offensive players in the game., so a team as a whole has to change somewhat to cater to the talent of a player like Karlsson. In the casè of the Blues. they have a really good thing going, and I don't think they need to change anything in the core or the style they play.

18 Dec 2017 03:32:30
NoBiasRambo you got to be one of the most bias here. Karlsson has the edge on best D in league convo but its not that clear cut. Will every team consider trading for him? Of course not. In fact more probably won't because they aren't planning to compete, don't wanna give up that much, or can't afford him than will. And if he does go the move has to make the acquiring team better. This doesn't make St Louis better difference between Tarasenko and Hoffman is bigger than Karlsson and Pietrangelo. Also Ryan has low to negative value with that contract adding Paul doesn't get you Landy.

18 Dec 2017 05:26:19
Rambo, come back to reality. Petro, is a superior dman on the defense side. Karlsson, is the superior offensive player. He is also like a -20 right now where petro is +12. As far as 13mil that's a huge no. They would have to gut their team they can't afford that. They have several people needing raises soon. Regardless of jbo''s contract coming off. Also tarasenko is amazing no way Hoffman holds a candle to him. This is an instant no go. You picked two of the four most important players on the blues and expect them for karlsson a 2nd liner and third liner lol your funny guy.

18 Dec 2017 05:30:16
Also Rambo

Petros contract 3 years 6.5 with his play is better than the difference in between karlsson and Petros offensive game. Like I said petro is better on defence side hardly gets hurt and isn't going to command 12 13 mil. Plus on top of all of that what if he decides he doesn't want to sign like shattenkirk. So do us all a favor and think about all the variables involved before coming here and making a bad prop.

18 Dec 2017 07:31:06
Very biased rambo

18 Dec 2017 13:39:54
Blues would say no. As said above, Karlsson is great, but so is Pietrangelo. Both should be in anyone’s top 6-7 D in the league if they have watched them play. And Hoffman is a good winger, but tarasenko is one of the best in the world. Gap there is huge. Plus Sosa is dead on with the team dynamic. Blues are built around tarasenko and Pietrangelo and their entire game runs through those 2 guys, seems to be working. Those guys are not replaceable parts in that machine. Karlsson changes all that.

18 Dec 2017 17:36:50
Jbs32 lady and Ryan have roughly equal value ryan may be coming off his worst regular season yet but in case you forgot landeskog is also coming off his worst season yet on an over payed contract as well. where does anyone get off saying landy worth that much more than ryan? And someone really needs to explain how outside an over payed contract and 1 bad season Ryan who is a 50 point guy on a regular basis or above 0.6points per game could possibly carry a negative value?

18 Dec 2017 17:44:50
While karlsson is have a bad season defensively you do realise he is coming off a crazy surgery that has affected his game so far right? And before this season karlsson defencive game is so much better than anyone gave him credit for right? Sure his give away count was high but that's a broken stat anyway as anything from a failed dump and chase, to a failed scrum in the corners, to a penalty kill clear attempt could be considered a giveaway on the scoreboard. his blocked shots, +/ -, takeaways, etc were all considered top 10 to top 5 in the league. saying there is that big of a gave between their defensive games just shows how ignorant you are to the game and specifically sens players in general.

18 Dec 2017 18:02:59
And as for Hoffman being a 2nd liner. go to the hospital and get them to see what's wrong with your head. the guy has a regular 0.71+ point per game average on a team with sub par offence. he's a 1st ling winger anywhere in the league guarenteed and sure there's a 0.2 ppg average difference between them but that's where the difference beween sobotka and brassard comes in and makes up for it.

The only other thing stated that makes any sense as to why this might not be good for stl is having to change style a bit to incorporate karlsson. but truth be told the positives out weigh the negatives long term. as their defense upgrades and sure they lose taresenko but they add depth to top 6 and still get a pure goal scorer with an insane set of hands that can bury it from anywhere. plus the 2 guys coming already have chemistry with karlsson on top of that so adjustment won't be tough for either of them. karlsson feeding Schwartz and schenn would be insane.

18 Dec 2017 18:13:41
I never at all said they wouldn't consider trading for Karlsson. I said they wouldn't consider this deal. They wouldn't consider giving up Petro AND Terasenko in the deal. Of course they would consider trading for Karlsson. But once Ottawa asks for Petro and Senko, they stop considering, that deal. You misunderstood what I said they wouldn't consider.

18 Dec 2017 23:09:54
Lol too funny!

18 Dec 2017 23:18:09
Rambo, its very clear people agree with me if Karlsoon is a 10 petro is a 9.5 not and guess what 3 years of 6.5 worth more than 1 year of that and then 13 mil. Also petri isn't injury prone not that karlesson is but he is. And after this last surgery he looks awful on defence. Petro is better defender. Blues get plenty off offence from swartz schenn terrasenko. Your trade offer us bad bro just except it.

19 Dec 2017 05:37:35
Its true redwing, he looks like a 29 year old playing with a bummed wheel. the other 30 teams aren't completely oblivious to that.

23 Dec 2017 00:59:00
I think that the main idea is that if the Sens trade EK65 it will take a team's (not a specific team) 1 of top 3 Forward + 1 of top 2 Dman or top goalie + 1st 2018 or 2019. All the sports stations are saying that EK65 is 1 of the top 5 players in the world so I guess a lot of teams will be making offers or at least look into it.

The Sens should rest EK65 until he gets better. He won't be injured forever . However the trade offer is bad. I wouldn't trade with STL. I would trade him to a team that wants him.

14 Dec 2017 19:04:09
Flyers: Landeskog
Colorado: Morin + lindblom

15 Dec 2017 01:01:16
yeah, landeskog has a better value for sure... IDK what you're thinking

15 Dec 2017 01:12:04
That's a solid no.

12 Dec 2017 08:16:53
Blake Comeau

Ian Cole

Avs sell high on Comeau who can be the defensive winger on a line with Malkin and Kessel and solidify their D core with Cole. Since Cole is a more valuable asset as a D, Avs add a little.

11 Dec 2017 16:50:23
Galchenyuk to Colorado
Kerfoot + 3rd (2019) to mtl

13 Dec 2017 00:20:29
Colorado laughs and blocks your digits.

07 Dec 2017 03:25:38
Tor: Kaspari Kappenen,Travis Dermotte and 1st 2017

Colorado: Eric Johnson ( 1 mil retained )

Leafs- Get exactly what they need a true 2 was number 1 RHD who can play 30 min a night and match up with any line. Morgan Rielly and him would make the perfect pair

Colorado-Huge shake up to there team and helps fill there prospect pool Kappenen can step into a top 9 role with PK and Top 6 potential. Dermotte is a good prospect not amazing but could pan out into a decent NHLer and the 1st is self explanatory.

07 Dec 2017 04:17:29
No need to put that first
Still I like it.

07 Dec 2017 05:38:16
salary cap? they still have to resign matthews, nylander and marner soon amongst other young guns. if they can swing this deal with it still falling within the cap sure. though i don't think johnson is the defenceman leafs need. could be a good veteran presence but may be able to get someone younger and a bit cheaper or go through their system. from what it looks like leafs are taking their time and doing a proper build rather than quick fixes.

07 Dec 2017 21:05:00
PKane you say he’s not the defensman they need but he is exactly what they need. I’ve heard mentions of Hamilton (not great defensively and unproven playing 25+ min consistently ) J. Faulk ( small and 1 dimensional ) T. J Bodie ( not a top pairing guy and LHD ) Noah Hanfin ( could be something like Eric Johnson but a LHD ) Eric Johnson is exactly the type of dman they need. He dose everything right And dosent make many mistakes and is very underrated IMO. A sad mans Ryan Suter. Morgan Rielly is their top offensive dman. Also Eric Johnson is worth the future cap penalty’s they can make it work tho without breaking the big 3. In the perfect world they sign Doughty in a few years and trade Marner but that’s a pipe dream this is much more reasonable and maybe it’s an overpay but all of Toronto’s pieces are expendable unlike the big 3.
