My colorado/ columbus trade rumor.

Colorado- Matt Duchene
Columbus- Ryan Murray, Josh Anderson, 1st.

21 Sep 2017 22:42:21
Columbus turned a deal for those two for Duchene down within the last two days. (not sure if a pick was involved or not)

Sakic is messed. He needs to just deal Duchene and move on.

17 Sep 2017 22:25:41
- Ryan Nugent-Hopkins
- Ryan Murray

17 Sep 2017 23:06:57
Edm doesn't need left D. Stop with these type of trades.
Unless there was a third team involved that Edm could flip Murray to, then sure.

18 Sep 2017 01:04:37
Edm absolutely needs def. Not saying this is their ideal trade but they have a very weak def. if Talbot falters or gets hurt, it will be a very long year for the Oil yet again. He was lights out last year but ridden extraordinarily hard.

18 Sep 2017 17:17:51
No. Edm does not need LEFT D. Sure they could maybe use a right handed D. But not a lefty that Murray is. Read my comment, understand it, then respond. You're such a broken record oiler hater Borje is so old.
Their D and Talbot are just fine. Get over it.

19 Sep 2017 01:01:54
I read it. For the life of me I can't understand your arrogance. If a team has 4 quality left shot def, they take them. And move oneto the rt side. Is that hard for you to understand? Best def of all time had Robinson, lapointe, Salvarsan, langway, engblom. All left.

19 Sep 2017 06:57:50
When was that? You think the game is the same now? Wow you're an idiot. Sorry.

19 Sep 2017 17:34:05
Is the year the Ducks got Nidermeyer despite their top 5 def already being left handed recent enough? How did that work out?

19 Sep 2017 17:38:09
How about the 2010Pens having 5 of their top 6 left handed? Not recent enough? You get the best players possible in def no matter which way they shoot unles you are the gm of course.

19 Sep 2017 22:02:12
I would have agreed with you before they resigned Russell to 4 years, Which I really disliked by the way.
But you're just a hater and wouldn't understand all the other reasons, i. e: they really like Benning. So there's no point in having a conversation with you.
I stand with my last comment.

19 Sep 2017 23:10:46
Isn't Bennington a right shot? He shouldn't be in the discussion based on your rigid philosophy. He's better than all but possibly two of your def. you have a chance to improve your team, you do it. Hater or not.

17 Sep 2017 09:24:18
I guess everyone on here must be top NHL GMs. Well i'm not but here's a quick proposal.

New Jersey trades

John Quenville and a 2nd Rd pick

Columbus trades

Josh Anderson

Line up



17 Sep 2017 11:05:09
They don't need to trade a good prospect and pick for anderson. They already have a good top six.

Hall - Henrique - Palmieri
Johansson - Hischier - Zacha

And Zajac can slot in there too when he's back.

17 Sep 2017 21:55:06
Also, Columbus says no.

18 Sep 2017 01:41:08
New jerseys second round pick alone could be an overpayment for anderson.

18 Sep 2017 01:43:43
No disrespect to Anderson, he had a great season. but that 2nd round pick could be decent enough in a few years.

16 Sep 2017 14:42:32
James van Riemsdyk to the Columbus Blue Jackets in exchange for Jack Johnson and a 2019 2nd Round Draft Pick.

- Two UFA's traded for each other, for positional needs.
- Columbus could use another left winger, especially if Sonny Milano doesn't pan out on the left side. Foligno, van Riemsdyk and Panarin on the left would be ridiculous.
- Columbus also has internal depth to take over for the loss of Johnson, as Harrington, Nutivarra and Gabriel Carlsson are all young enough to play the bottom pair and have sheltered minutes. The top four in CBJ would stay the same, with Seth Jones, Zach Werenski, David Savard and Ryan Murray.
- Toronto definetly could use another defenseman to round out their top four, and Johnson could be a stabilizing partner for the still growing Morgan Rielly. It would also be better if Ron Hainsey played in a third pairing role than in a first pairing role, that way he could play big minutes on the PK.
- Toronto also can easily replace JVR, as currently, with him in the lineup, they have 5 NHL ready left wingers (JVR, Marleau, Hyman, Komarov, Martin) . One would shift to the right side if this move wasn't done. With this move, there is an opening on the right wing for Kasperi Kapanen, who played well in a fourth line stint last year.

Toronto Lineup:
Zach Hyman - Auston Matthews - William Nylander
Patrick Marleau - Tyler Bozak - Mitch Marner
Leo Komarov - Nazem Kadri - Connor Brown
Matt Martin - Dominic Moore - Kasperi Kapanen
*Josh Leivo

Jack Johnson - Morgan Rielly
Jake Gardiner - Nikita Zaitsev
Connor Carrick - Ron Hainsey
*Travis Dermott, Roman Polak

Columbus Lineup:
Artemi Panarin - Alex Wennberg - Josh Anderson (if he signs)
Nick Foligno - Brandon Dubinsky - Cam Atkinson
James van Riemsdyk - Boone Jenner - Oliver Bjorkstrand
Sonny Milano - Lukas Sedlak - Matt Calvert
*Jordan Schroeder

Seth Jones - Zach Werenski
Gabriel Carlsson - David Savard
Markus Nuttivarra - Ryan Murray
*Scott Harrington

- Only reason I added the second is because I believe Jack Johnson is worth a first, and JVR is worth a first and second. So yeah.

16 Sep 2017 18:18:27
I like it, I don't think Johnson is the answer to the Leafs and JVR isn't a centremen but it does make both teams better without them really giving up much. So solid and a realistic trade.

16 Sep 2017 22:27:00
You put too much time into this. Lol.

17 Sep 2017 04:25:49

I have nothing better to do on a Saturday mornin. Lol.

10 Sep 2017 03:04:25
- James Van Riemsdyk
- Kasperi Kapanen
- Brett Pesce
- Elias Lindholm


- James Van Riemsdyk
- Ryan Murray

10 Sep 2017 08:23:32
The jackets need a center not a wing.

10 Sep 2017 08:37:47
Very easy no from CAR.

10 Sep 2017 15:53:18
NO from both teams they need centres not more wings :p.

10 Sep 2017 17:35:53
Pesce>JVR, Lindholm>Kapanen. No way from Carolina.

Id rather have a young dman than a pending ufa in JVR honestly. SO no from jackets.

10 Sep 2017 18:31:48
Canes get hosed big time.

11 Sep 2017 01:51:50
I can't see Pesce going anywhere.

06 Sep 2017 23:37:18
COL: Duschene
CGY: Bennett, Valimaki, Anderson or Kylington

07 Sep 2017 14:08:16
Personally I'd rather wait to and give Bennett one more season to prove himself. And if we were giving up that much I'd rather it be for a RW. I don't thinks it's a bad offer though.

07 Sep 2017 15:35:10
Do the Flames really need anothe center though? I mean they already have a solid 1st line center in Monahan and a solid 2nd center in Backlund.

07 Sep 2017 20:39:31
Way too much from the Flames.

08 Sep 2017 05:45:20
That's not enough for duchene.

09 Sep 2017 16:31:21
Duchess is a cancer in the dressing room. No thanks.

09 Aug 2017 17:10:28
COL: Milano, savard, 1st

CBJ: duchene


WIN: Dubois

CBJ: trouba


Panarin duchene Anderson
Foligno wennberg Atkinson
Jenner Dubinsky bjorkstrand
Calvert sedlak shroeder

Werenski Jones
Johnson Trouba
Nutivaara Murray


Thoughts on this? I think they could go for the cup for sure

09 Aug 2017 18:28:37
In no way does aprospect land you trouba who had a really bad D+1.

10 Aug 2017 22:50:57
Trouba is gone instantly if pld is offered.

27 Jul 2017 21:10:09
WPG: Conner & Trouba

Col: Duchesne

28 Jul 2017 00:16:21
In no way would Winnipeg ever accept that.

03 Aug 2017 15:10:15
Ugh. Connor and Trouba for Duchesne u must be delirious. It would be giving steak dinners for a gourmet burger. Duchesne is a flake and should just stay where he is.

25 Jul 2017 08:27:17
COL: valimaki, poirer, 1st round pick

CAL: duchene

Gaudreau monahan duchene
Tkachuk backlund frolik
Versteeg bennet brouwer
Lazar stajan ferland

Giordano Hamilton
Brodie hamonic
Kulak stone


Good trade?

Calgary could make a run for the cup possibly

25 Jul 2017 13:49:58
Valimaki and a 1st would be needed. But that third piece can't be a a 22 year old winger with 8 NHL games. They wanted a first, a top D prospect (valimaki) and a young NHLer. 8 games over 4 years since being drafted isn't that.

26 Jul 2017 17:12:48
If that's not enough, it explains why duchene hasn't been dealt. He is not worth the desired asking price.

31 Jul 2017 21:12:31
Lol, what first round pick?

19 Jul 2017 19:29:15
WPG: Perrault, Hutchison, Enstrom
CLB: Murray, Calvert

Jets get a younger left handed defenceman and a bottom 6 forward that can help with their Penalty Kill. Blue Jackets get a backup goalie, a forward that can play top 6-9 centre or wing, and an older more experienced puck moving defenceman to replace Murray.

19 Jul 2017 20:38:42
I haven't seen one trade from you that the jets don't make off like bandits. This one isn't as bad as most because there's no star players that you're stealing from the other team. But if that's the return, jackets keep the 2 younger and cheaper players. They're getting older and more expensive in both positions and getting a back up goalie as an incentive? Come on.

19 Jul 2017 22:11:31
Lol! The new delusional MontrealsFinest.
You are now forever known as WinnipegsFinest.

20 Jul 2017 19:47:19
Yup stop talking. You have been known as Edmonton'sFinest for at least a year now.

21 Jul 2017 00:34:11
Lmao this comment thread.

21 Jul 2017 01:12:16
goldenknights lololololol.

18 Jul 2017 20:59:23
Bos:Spooner, 3rd
Columbus: Murray

18 Jul 2017 20:43:05
Bos: Spooner and 2nd Rd pick
Columbus: Murray

18 Jul 2017 15:43:42
COL: Duchene
CGY: Bennett, Valimaki

18 Jul 2017 18:57:08
Colorado would need to take more salary. Brower? Please. Personally I'd like to see Val replaced by Kylington. I've seen them both and like them both but I think Val could be very good and soon.

18 Jul 2017 19:56:03
Two busts and then you want to throw in a cap dump with negative value (Brouwer)? Colorado laughs. Start with Tkuchuk and ++.
Ha ha lol :)
-How's my Borje impression?

18 Jul 2017 20:42:33
Not too bad Yup!

18 Jul 2017 21:57:27
Pretty spot on yup wow.

19 Jul 2017 02:37:12
Just trying my best at sounding like a broken record.
It's funny how the original post is half decent and would get Colorados attention, But he wants to downgrade a player and add a cap dump, Making Colorado laugh and hang up. Lol. Entertaining i suppose.

19 Jul 2017 03:04:38
I don't think u would get tkachuk straight up for duchene.

19 Jul 2017 05:23:22
Don't worry, I was just trolling.

19 Jul 2017 14:14:15
Nuge for
Someone useful plus

How's my Yup/ Mcjesus impression?

19 Jul 2017 15:03:46
I've never posted a Nuge proposal. So you're way off just like all your evaluations. Lol.

17 Jul 2017 16:42:07
WPG: 1st Round Pick 2018, Armia, Petan
COL: Landeskog

17 Jul 2017 20:39:23
Not a terrible package but avs would want at least one of the prospects to be a D with high end potential.

17 Jul 2017 20:59:46
Armia and petal have like no value.

17 Jul 2017 23:06:47
If Sakic is going to trade with Winnipeg, I can see him wanting to trade Landeskog straight up for Trouba. which, would be an overpayment . but ot jus seems like he's going to want an overpayment for either Landeskog or Duchene.

18 Jul 2017 02:10:36
%98 of your trades are brutal for the other team.

17 Jul 2017 01:57:13
mtl : danault and 2nd

columbus : wennberg

17 Jul 2017 04:24:45
Brutal for CLB.

17 Jul 2017 15:20:43
No mater what Columbus are not trading their cheap Wennberg that has proven to be a 1st offensive centerman.

17 Jul 2017 21:36:37
Wennberg is CBJs 1/ 2C. This would make them exponentially weaker at C than they already are. Horrible trade for them, it's completely one-sided for MTL.

14 Jul 2017 14:39:30
Duschene Trades

COL: Duschene
NYI: Barzal, Pulock, 1st Round Pick 2018 (CGY)

COL: Duschene
CLB: Murray, PLD

COL: Duschene
CAR: Pesce, Fluery, Gauthier

COL: Duschene
NSH: Fabbro, Fiala, 1st Round Pick 2018

14 Jul 2017 15:17:52
All of those are an overpayment for Duchene. He's a good player, but not worth that - at least I wouldn't pay that. Sakic has set the bar too high.

14 Jul 2017 17:05:04
Why can't anyone spell Duchene lol however I think those are all quality offers for him.

14 Jul 2017 17:05:22
But I can't see the other teams giving up that much for him.

14 Jul 2017 17:09:19
The Caroline trade is the biggest joke.

07 Jul 2017 17:06:20
LA: Martinez, Clague, Kemble and 1st 2018

Col: Duchene

07 Jul 2017 21:00:43
**Kempe** not Kemble.

07 Jul 2017 23:41:10
It's not a tumMA . lol Arnold swazinager kindergarden cop.

07 Jul 2017 07:57:48
COL: G. Carlsson, S. Milano, Dubois
CBJ: M. Duchene

I'd do it if I'm Jarmo K.

07 Jul 2017 12:38:12
Good thing you're not. Duchene isn't that good that's aweful for Columbus.

07 Jul 2017 13:41:56
so you know all three going to be good nhlers? in what? 2-3 years? how about trying to win now and not in the future?

07 Jul 2017 15:55:54
Lol. CLB says no. Easily. This is bad.

07 Jul 2017 17:20:36
Take one prospect out and it should be close.

08 Jul 2017 00:12:08
I just don't see Duchene as someone to give up 3 blue chippers for. He has struggled recently 5 on 5. that's also not the type of package Sakic has made it clear he's looking for.

08 Jul 2017 15:19:39
No way Dubois is a star. I wouldn't trade him.

08 Jul 2017 15:20:22
Take out Milano he dosent carry much value anyway. Don't think it's to bad.

08 Jul 2017 19:21:24
I can't see jackets trading PLD along with both Carlson and Milano.

13 Jul 2017 18:19:44
Milano isn't worth anything. He's not going to make NHL. However, I don't see Columbus wanting to trade Dubois.

06 Jul 2017 18:49:34
Tml: JVR
CBJ: Murray

Columbus already had a solid top 4 D in werekski, jones, Johnson and savard
and JVR can be a good top 6 winger who could play with wennberg and panarin

Leafs replace JVR role with marleau and get a top 4 defencemen

06 Jul 2017 19:07:46
I think JVR is more valuable than Murray and also Toronto would be better if trading it for a RHD than an LHD.

06 Jul 2017 19:33:40
Columbus has no need for top-6 LWs. We already have Panarin, Foligno, Jenner, and Calvert with Dubois looking to push for a roster spot. What we need is a top 6 centre, and with Murray being our most prized trading chip, I can't see us parting with him for someone who isn't a centre.

06 Jul 2017 20:03:35
Aren't he leafs looking for a RHD? I mean I honestly don't think Murray would take a spot from Reilly or Gardiner right now, so trading JVR for a 3rd pairing dman for them seems rather odd.

06 Jul 2017 21:04:45
Guys its 1 year of JVR. he's a great player but he's not getting a great long term player.

06 Jul 2017 21:08:47
Only way leafs take a LHD is if they are far better than rielly, Which Murray is not. Rielly, gardiner, hainsey on the left. Zaitsev then a big drop off on the Right. Save jvr for the player they need.

06 Jul 2017 21:18:16

Dont really think Calvert is a top 6 winger. he's a bottom 6 guy.

Also, even if value is there, Leafs don't need a LHD.

But still imo, I think Murray > JVR based on xontract status and position.

07 Jul 2017 00:08:34
Not a good fit for either team as mentioned above.
CLB are intersted in a center like Duchene and Tor should go after a top 4 RHD to play with Reilly.

07 Jul 2017 14:57:19
Savard would be better.

07 Jul 2017 14:59:07
Yup-Rielly is on the 1st pair so they'd need a top 2 D not top 4. They already have Zaitsev.

05 Jul 2017 14:29:46
WPG: Trouba
CLB: Jones

05 Jul 2017 16:00:51
No from Clb.

05 Jul 2017 16:12:35
Easy no from CLB.

05 Jul 2017 16:44:59
Both good young D. Have seen a lot more of trouba play and am a fan of how he plays but haven't heard anything but good things about jones too. jones is locked up for 5 more seasons at 5.4 instead of trouba 1 year at 2.8 before he gets a huge raise and possibly sits out again if he doesn't get what he wants. That alone would make me not move jones.

05 Jul 2017 17:07:11
Jones is one of the few d i'd personally wouldn't mind the leafs moving marner for now Trouba on the other hand is a good 4th dman but nothing more. You need offense to play long in the NHL and he has none. Jones will be Elite.

05 Jul 2017 22:14:36
@Nylander Trouba would have had the highest PPG amongst defenceman amongst the leafs D this season but he apparently doesn't have any offence? Do you just throw darts at a dartboard blindfolded to evaluate a players value?

06 Jul 2017 01:10:29
charles are you actually trying to defend the idea of trouba being better than jones or just arguing the side point for no reason?

06 Jul 2017 01:40:12
Assists. does not generate shots or is a presence on the pp.

06 Jul 2017 12:01:43
Trouba had 33 points in 60 games.

06 Jul 2017 12:53:56
Almost every D has an assist total that outweighs their goals. Don't see how that doesn't create offense. Also last week we were asked to believe that Jacob slavin is they greatest defensive Dman on the league, and a top 10 overall. his numbers are virtually identical in PPG and goals vs assists ratio. Secondly, there's a lot of players that played long long careers with little offense. There's a need for all types.

06 Jul 2017 15:43:07
Would much rather have a 2way dman that has a stronger offensive game the deffense who piles up shots and is a strong preasence on the PP.

08 Jul 2017 15:18:39
Dude Trouba really took strides after his holdout or whatever. He was easily Winnipegs 2nd best, if not the 1st best dman for most of the season. I know I know it's Winnipeg, not saying much lol.
