28 Mar 2019 15:16:25
Since when would that minny package get 3 first round picks. no way. This is pretyy brutal man, i get the thought process behind it but these do not work out unfortunately. Then the nuge trade is just dumb for oil that's terrible.

28 Mar 2019 23:30:30
First trade is tilted to the Oilers so hard.

29 Mar 2019 17:41:01
Awful for everyone not named Edmonton.

31 Mar 2019 00:02:47
Is very good trade for Edmonton, yes. We must make this trade now. Is good. Call now please before is too late.

22 Mar 2019 21:24:43
FLA - Michael Matheson + 1st-Round Pick + Maxwell Gildon + James Reimer
CLB - Sergei Brobovsky

22 Mar 2019 22:09:09
why tho.

23 Mar 2019 21:28:21
You're aware he's a UFA in 3 months?

24 Mar 2019 21:32:30
This is brutal.

28 Feb 2019 09:13:05
Oilers trade: sekera, Puljujarvi, Benson, 2nd round pick 2019

Wild trade: Zucker, Spurgeon

Oilers trade: Nuge, Yamamoto, Reider, 3rd round pick 2020

Blue jackets trade: Jenner, Anderson, Milano

Zucker Mcdavid Rattie
Lucic Draisaitl Anderson
Milano Jenner Gagner
Khaira broziak Kassian

Nurse Spurgeon
Kelfbom Larsson
Russell Benning


Are these almost fair at least?

28 Feb 2019 11:08:24
As long as Koskinen is #1 goalie they're should be no future mortgaging deals for Edmonton. This team needs a rebuild at everypostion except center.

28 Feb 2019 17:20:03
The wild trade is one of the worst I've seen on here. i know they have been getting ripped off on trades lately but not to the point where they would even consider this.

01 Mar 2019 15:09:11
I think we are better off keeping RNH right now. Nothing wrong with Jenner, but Milano sucks and is probably never going to make the nhl full time, and Anderson isn’t worth taking a downgrade at center and losing all those other guys, including a very recent 1st rd pick.

01 Mar 2019 15:12:33
i mean if minny wants to keep trading for younger players (besides sekera) that works but honestly no from oilers we don't got the cap for those two player. Pool we just got to hope recovers from hisn surgery quickly and can train all summer and benson could be a player one day, looks great in the A as a rookie.

28 Feb 2019 09:12:00
Off season

Mtl: 3rd pick

Clb: Panarin

Mtl gets early conversation going to try and convince him to sign to a 9.9 million deal for 7 years

28 Feb 2019 15:00:03
well that will be a waste of a 3rd lol.

28 Feb 2019 15:00:50
and 9.9 lol man he's going to make like 5mil if he took that in montreal due to their taxes.

28 Feb 2019 19:01:20
He might sign in Florida for 9.9 mil it would have to be 12 mil in Montreal.

28 Feb 2019 20:34:14
I don’t think Paniran is worth more the Mark Stone. Extremely close but not more.

01 Mar 2019 15:16:39
Panarin wouldn’t have any interest in playing in Montreal.

There’s a lot of free agents available this year. It’s a buyer’s market. Prices might be pushed down just due to the overwhelming amount of high quality players available. It would be nice to see salaries come back to reality after being pushed up so much the last couple years.

23 Feb 2019 00:44:52
I am hearing Mike Hoffman is about to be to traded to the Columbus Blue Jackets along with Derrick Brassard, Aleksi Heponiemi, James Reimer and a 2019 1st round pick for Sergei Bobrovsky and Alexander Wennberg.

Very shocking Artemi Panarin is not part of the deal. I am hearing Florida is in on the Bobrovsky and Wennberg package instead now.

23 Feb 2019 02:10:04
Do you have a source on this one?

23 Feb 2019 18:47:22
Would be crazy.

23 Feb 2019 18:49:54
Oh please be true lol massive downgrade on goaltending for Columbus with wenberg Hoffman cancelling each other out and Brassard sucks lol this will be a win for Ottawa in my view lol.

Reimer won't steal games like Bobrovsky can for Columbus making the pick and conditional pick from Duchene deal that much better while Bobrovsky helps Florida steal a few and move up the rankings.

Please make this happen lol.

23 Feb 2019 19:58:05
'Hoffman cancelling out Wennberg' 'Brassard sucks'

When they were on Ottawa, they were worth Brayden Point and Mikhail Sergachev tho?

23 Feb 2019 21:52:28
That would be a gross overpayment.

22 Feb 2019 00:53:29
Ott- Tolvanen, Wennberg, clb 1st 2019
Nash - duchene
Clb- fiala, ott 3rd 2019.

22 Feb 2019 01:23:33
Make the 1st coming from Nashville instead of Columbus makes more sense to me. Otherwise Nsh gains Duchene and all they give up is Tolvanen?

22 Feb 2019 01:26:52
What the how does Ottawa get Wennberg, Tolvanen and a 1st just for Duch? Lol def no from Columbus and Nashville.

22 Feb 2019 18:36:12
Zamboni in this trade Nashvile is giving up Fiala and Tolvanen to acquire Duchene wich is not bad. Its slot to give up for a rental yes but that rental is over a ppg this season and Tolvanen, for all we know could never pan out in the nhl. Or become a beast. Fiala is going to be a 50 point player imo. Good top 6 player a better Marcus Johanson imo.

22 Feb 2019 18:45:32
Sens give up Duchene and a 3rd
Nash gives up Tolvanen, Fiala
Clb gives up Wennberg and a 1st

Sens get Tolvanen, Wennberg and a 1st
Wennberg is descent and in need of a change of scenery and will help Ottawa hit cap floor next year

Nash gets Duchene

Clb gets Fiala and 3rd.

22 Feb 2019 00:50:47
Another Duchene 3 way

Nash- Duchene
Ott- Eeli Tolvanen, Wennberg, clb 1st 2019
Clb- Fiala,

22 Feb 2019 05:34:29
i like this deal, though i'd think ottawa would give up duchene and dzingle at min, probably dzingle to columbus, add in nashville's 1st to ottawa?

21 Feb 2019 20:25:54
Ottawa Senators:

•) Matt Duchene

Columbus Blue Jackets:

•) Josh Anderson

•) Veini Vehvilainen

•) 1st Round Pick 2019

•) 4th Round Pick 2019 (2nd if Duchene Resigns)

20 Feb 2019 22:21:52
NYR: Kevin Hayes


CLB: 2019 2nd, Gabriel Carlsson, & Oliver Bjorkstrand

21 Feb 2019 18:27:56
Carlsson is looking like a bust. He can’t even make Columbus, who don't even have very good defense past that top line. Rangers might want a 1st instead so they draft their own guy. But otherwise it looks like a pretty straightforward offer that could benefit both teams.

20 Feb 2019 22:07:29
Ott trades:
-Matt Duchene

Clb trades:
-2019 1st rnd pick
-Alexander Wennberg
-2019 3rd rnd pick.

20 Feb 2019 10:37:38
Ottawa Senators:

•) Matt Duchene

Columbus Blue Jackets:

•) 1st Round Pick

•) Josh Anderson

•) Veini Vehvilainen

•) 3rd Round Pick (1st if Duchene Resigns)

20 Feb 2019 16:39:58
I'd do it, another goalie prospect for the future (I'd love to see a Vehvilainen and Gustavsson combo), Josh Anderson gives them a roster player to play now and the 2 picks (potentially both first if duchene resigns) give them good picks for rebuild.

20 Feb 2019 17:14:17
Doesnt make any sense for Columbus UNLESS Panarin was already traded.

20 Feb 2019 18:17:25
Even if Panarin is traded, Columbus isn’t going to bring in another UFA. Same situation applies in Columbus as in both Ottawa and Colorado that Duchene wanted out from to begin: too much instability. Duchene doesn’t want to be on a team that is reorganizing.

20 Feb 2019 18:54:12
Good point zamboni.

20 Feb 2019 19:26:48
If they made this trade they wouldn’t trade Panarin. I think it’s a little too much though personally.

20 Feb 2019 19:41:21
Teams are probably looking into sign and trade options to not make it a rental, if it was then would be a fair trade imo.

20 Feb 2019 19:42:46
But not an extra 1st, maybe a lower draft pick with no conditions.

22 Feb 2019 15:05:08
If Duchene resigns shootsmcgee? Absolutely another first

With Gustafson already in the system there's no guarantee vehvilainen will make it big

And Columbus 1st is a mid to late pick

Jos Anderson is good but he don't make up that kind of difference on resigned Duchene

Trade is good as it with condition and all.

18 Feb 2019 02:05:30
Trade proposal that might still be in talks with Columbus Blue Jackets and Florida Panthers

Columbus gets Forward Mike Hoffman, Forward Derrick Brassard, Goalie James Reimer, and 2019 2nd round draft pick (acquired by Pittsburgh)

Florida gets Goalie Sergei Bobrovsky

Columbus would get a top goal scorer in Mike Hoffman to help them in the playoffs as well as Derrick Brassard in the 3rd of 4th line. 2nd rounder added to take James Reimer.

18 Feb 2019 03:43:50
I like it, florida gets some time with bob to possibly sign extension or at least negotiate and he gets a trial till end of season to see if he likes it type thing.
columbus gets some pieces to help them compete in playoffs. i'd imagine this would be around the right package for bob.
Only concern i'd have is does columbus have cap space for this deal?

18 Feb 2019 04:15:55
That’s a lot coming from Florida, so iffy on that one. Don’t think they are that desperate to get just Bob but oh yes from Columbus.

18 Feb 2019 07:02:42
Don’t see how this even close and I don’t understand the Bobrovsky and Panarin trades to Florida. Why would they trade a 60 point player with term left for a UFA goalie when there 10 points out of a playoff spot?

18 Feb 2019 16:30:06
Between Panarin and Bobrovsky I think Bob’s is the one Columbus really wants to keep.

17 Feb 2019 18:48:31
Ott -duchene, Anderson
Columbus - Bobrovski, jenner

17 Feb 2019 21:03:23
I can’t think of any reason why either team makes this trade.

18 Feb 2019 03:28:10
Rumour has it ottawa wants a roster player, a good prospect and a pick for duchene, and i'm assuming you could at least get a 2nd or 3rd for anderson alone. i doubt ottawa would want to swap ufas and likely lose the ufa they trade for. value wise is fair but makes no sense for ottawa if they are rebuilding.

16 Feb 2019 21:25:23
Three-Way Trade Idea:

Columbus Blue Jackets Trade: Artemi Panarin [6.00 Million x 1 Year] + 2020 2nd Round Draft Pick.
Ottawa Senators Trade: Mark Stone [7.350 Million x 1 Year] + Ryan Dzingel [2.10 Million x 1 Year]
Nashville Predators Trade: Dante Fabbro [Unsigned] + Craig Smith [4.25 Million x 2 Years] + 2019 1st Round Draft Pick

Columbus Blue Jackets Acquire: Mark Stone
Ottawa Senators Acquire: Dante Fabbro Craig Smith + 2019 1st Round Draft Pick + 2020 2nd Round Draft Pick
Nashville Predators Acquire: Artemi Panarin + Ryan Dzingel

- Ottawa picks up a ton of valuable young pieces, and essentially swaps Dzingel for Smith since Smith has the extra year and could be in play next year.
- Nashville picks up a star caliber player for their top six and a middle six to help them against the Flames, Jets and Sharks: giving them an elite forward core and a chance at the cup this year.
- Columbus essentially swaps Stone for Panarin, and gives up the 2nd to do so since imo, Stone is better than Panarin. However, it is entirely possible that Stone resigns while Panarin does not.

16 Feb 2019 23:05:48
Stone is not better than Panarin in any universe.

17 Feb 2019 00:06:19
Columbus won’t take a chance swapping free agents. If they think they can sign Stone they will wait to do so in the summer. In the meantime, they collect what they can for Panarin. Way too risky to chance ending up with only a 2nd for Panarin.

17 Feb 2019 02:15:08
I'll take stone over bread man every time easily
There is more to the game then points.

17 Feb 2019 13:26:24
Panarin and a 2nd for stone? Laughabl, how many times stone set records for his team? People said panarin was a product of playing with kane and his first year in Columbus set team record for assists and points. And he's not a liability defensively, just doesn't hit, nothing else wrong with his game. Stone is a good player but not the same level.

18 Feb 2019 06:06:37
This is a joke right?

21 Feb 2019 04:04:52
Shootsmcgee your joking right in what universe is stone ever a defencive liability? LMFAO he's literally one of the top 4 to 5 defensive forwards in today's game, something panarin simply is not! Plus his numbers continue to improve every year on a weak team and currently are right there with panarin this year. You can claim it's cause he played with Duchene that his numbers went up but you'd be wrong again as they were on separate lines all season.

14 Feb 2019 09:12:29
Columbus: Bobrovsky
Calgary: Smith, Välimäki, conditional 1st round pick 2020 (if Bobrovsky re signs) , second round pick 2020

14 Feb 2019 15:04:49
Im going to go off my gut feeling and say there is 0% he resigns in Calgary, but besides that, i'm sure Columbus gets a better offer.

14 Feb 2019 15:40:03
Personally I would rather keep vali and go for a capeable backup for rittich.

15 Feb 2019 01:26:31
Columbus is going to keep Goalie Bob and try to ride him like he was Secretariat.

15 Feb 2019 01:25:09
Lollllll calgary laughs.

15 Feb 2019 23:35:05
Anaheim receives: Rittich 2019 1st and 2020 1st

Calgary receives: John Gibson

* if Gibson comes of IR before trade deadline.

14 Feb 2019 03:35:11
Florida is apparently the front runners for Bob and Paniran. If they were to bring in Paniran it is speculated they'd trade Hoffman. Most likely they visit this In the off-season but they could want the opportunity to pursuade them with an extra year.

Florida: Hoffman, Brassard, Hepponemi ,Remier And 2nd 2019

Columbus: Paniran And Brobovsky

Columbus- get a near near equal replacement with an extra year and potential to resign in Hoffman. Reimer could be a 1B in Columbus. Brassard fills a 3C role and helps with the playoff push and Hepponemi brings in a dynamic prospect in their system whom has top 6 potential.

Florida: gets two elite players who happen to be very close to each other. They both want to test FA but maybe a change of scenery would change their mind.

14 Feb 2019 05:31:12
Would definitely include a first.

14 Feb 2019 05:50:43
Maybe swap out hepponeimi for borgstrom?

14 Feb 2019 13:34:22
Heponiemi is better then Borgstrom so you think Florida is giving too much in this trade Habby?

14 Feb 2019 15:06:08
Borgstrom is already showing he can play in the nhl. He's a sure thing bud. Heppo is like 150lbs soaking wet and is still a wildcard.

14 Feb 2019 15:07:29
Heponiemi has never played a game in the NHL how exactly is he already better than Borgstrom? Serious question just wondering, i think Borgstrom is nasty from his college highlights but who i don't know.

14 Feb 2019 00:21:02
Mtl: Lekonen, Benn, 3rd2019

Blue Jackets: Murray, Dubinski(10%)

Mtl takes about to 5 million in cap with Dubinski until 2021 but gets they're LHD for cheaper because they're doing so. Jackets clear about 8 million total in cap and still gets peaces that can help now and a pick. Lekonen is a good young top 9 winger that should fit well in the mix and Benn can replace Murray on the bottom pair because I heard that's where he was playing sometimes because of the depth they have in the blue line.

14 Feb 2019 03:08:05
Jackets aren’t getting a good enough return here. Dubinsky and Murray are arguably the better players and the 3rd doesn’t add anything.

11 Feb 2019 12:16:39

To clb
1st round pick 2019

That's the prize for panarin

Nsh improve a lot their offense and clb add assets

11 Feb 2019 14:53:48
If anyone gives up that much for a rental then they are doomed for failure.

11 Feb 2019 15:12:30
I think giving Fiala is a non starter. Fabbro and 1st is fair imo maybe Tolvanen over Fabbro if they’re lucky. Most likely I think it’d be two decent prospects and a 1st.

11 Feb 2019 15:45:36
If anything i think Preds would be more comfortable giving up a dman prospect as they already have the best top 4 in the league, but to give up for a rental would be tough. But agree with vb i don't think preds will want to give up a roster player.

11 Feb 2019 16:56:28
Fiala and Fabbro were both 1st round picks. So, three first round picks, one of which is already playing NHL and scoring over 20 goals a year, for a rental? In comparison, Kessel, O’Rielly, Schenn, all went for a couple 1sts, and all had term left on their contracts. Massive overpayment for panarin.

11 Feb 2019 17:20:46
Guys, at this time that is the prize. a Young nhl player, an A prospect and a 1st round pick

I hesitate between tolvanen and fabbro for the prospect.
If you think you can do better

go ahead ;)

11 Feb 2019 17:26:33
if NSH can have Panarin for Fabbro (or tolvanen) and a 1st pick only and keep Fiala, good for NSH. But What i said, at this time, it is the prize for a star like panarin even it is for rental.

11 Feb 2019 18:40:13
That might be the asking price. They can ask for all they want. What they ask and what they get are two different creatures all together.

I have yet to see a rental go for that much.

11 Feb 2019 19:27:02
Zamboni, a rentals often go for that much as long as the team thinks they can resign them, Ryan Hartman got a 1st last year, players like panarin are top, if you want him, you have to pay just like another team that is pretty sure they can resign him, don't pay less because your team thinks of him as a rental.

11 Feb 2019 21:40:45
Shoots i'm pretty sure zamboni is just stating that just because a team wants ______ as a return for a player does not mean they will get exactly what they ask for. Yes Panarin i'm positive (if traded) will net a bigger return than Hartman, but zamboni was saying they may not get the perfect return for him considering the high possibility Panarin doesn't reisgn with whatever team trades for him given the many reports of his perferred spots and he already went public and said he will test free agency. So i can for sure see the price to get him not super high as there are teams who might not think their package for Panarin will be worth it for a couple months of his services.

12 Feb 2019 02:30:19
Columbus can ask for McDavid and Presidancy of India for Paniran it dosent mean they’ll get it. I’d take a younger cheaper more term controlled Fiala over Paniran straight up.

Nash- Eli Tolvanen And conditional 1st* ( if the Preds don’t make the conference finals become a 2nd 2019 )

Columbus- Paniran

It’s only a half of a season for Paniran. Eric Staal is the most comparable return.

10 Feb 2019 20:05:25
Edmonton: 3rd round pick

Columbus: Bemström

Edmonton need RW and bemström is a future star.. would prob make the team next season

10 Feb 2019 21:35:05
If he's a 'future star', I doubt CBJ trades him for a 3rd. And looking at DB, 28 Points in 33 Games as a 19 year old center is a no-no from CBJ.

10 Feb 2019 21:35:37
If he’s a future star Columbus won’t trade him for a 3rd round pick.

11 Feb 2019 02:29:19
I never heard of the guy. His stats in SweHL are really good. Top of the league. Only a couple old guys like Derek Roy have more points. Who knows if Columbus would be willing to trade him. He’s doing good for a 4th round pick. They might just want to hold on to him for now.

11 Feb 2019 04:58:18
@zamboni he's 4th on his own team in points. there are more then a couple people ahead of him. Still pretty good stats for a 19 year old though.

11 Feb 2019 06:08:00
His team is high scoring. I went through team by team. Even though he’s fourth on his own team, his 28 points is good enough to be tops on almost every other team in the league.

11 Feb 2019 12:02:10
I live in sweden and cheer for Djurgården (bemströms team)

He is beast, most goals in shl and just getting better every game. he's shot in pp is lethal.

11 Feb 2019 14:30:51
Tied for 11th overall.

11 Feb 2019 17:11:14
11th overall is very impressive considering quite a few of those guys ahead of him are ex-NHL players that are quite old and not good enough for the big leagues anymore, but still want to play competitive hockey. After you take out guys like Derek Roy, and only look at guys his own age, Bemström shoots up to about top 5.

No matter how you look at it, Bemström looks good. For a late round pick, he could be a real dark horse and squeak into the NHL and play a good game. Now that I’ve been turned on to him, I’ll keep an eye out for him. Always enjoy seeing how projects like this turn out.

11 Feb 2019 18:01:48
If Bemstrom is a future star why would Columbus give him up for a 3rdpick?

11 Feb 2019 18:08:24
Swechamp do you have any insight on how Joel Persson looks this year?

11 Feb 2019 23:34:34
I can't see him being nhl ready, sure he is good but not good enough to help oilers.
