22 Oct 2018 07:24:29
EDM - Ryan Strome + 1st Rd Pick
MTL - Paul Byron

EDM - Milan Lucic + 5th Rd Pick
PIT - Carl Hagelin

Edmonton gets faster, pittsburgh gets tougher, montreal gets depth down the middle and a pick.

Nugent-Hopkins - McDavid - Rattie
Byron - Draisaitl - Puljujärvi
Hagelin - Cagguila - Yamamoto
Khaira - Brodziak - Kassian

And as a cool experiment it would be cool to see them try out a really speedy line

Carl Hagelin - Connor McDavid - Paul Byron

22 Oct 2018 12:05:46
Ryan Strome and a 1st for Byron? Ok!

22 Oct 2018 15:10:48
Might as well make it a 4 way trade and throw in Seabrook and Loui Eriksson to Pittsburgh as well.

BIG Oilers Shakeup;

Oilers: Marchessault

VGK: Lucic, B Prospect (Larkin)


Oilers: Smith, 2020 3rd round pick

OTT: Strome


Oilers: Parayko, 2020 3rd round pick

STL: Yamamoto, Benning, 2019 1st round pick (Top 10 Protected)


Oilers: Nylander

TO: Larsson, Caggiula

17 Oct 2018 13:21:45
Lol Vegas laughs.
No reason for STL to do that.
Not sure I like Smith more than Strome right now. Lucic - Strome - Yamamoto we put together as a third line last night and looked good, had some good chances and I hope that third line sticks for a bit because Drake and Puljujarvi looked good with Drai as well.
And Leafs fans will laugh and bring up Hall and just say that deal sucks because it's for Oilers players.

17 Oct 2018 13:44:47
The 1st trade is terrible for Vegas.

17 Oct 2018 14:43:23
Vegas laughs at you.

Ottawa deal is okay, but i don't think EDM does ir.

If Parayko>>Nylander, that won’t get him either.

Id take thatdeal for Ny imo.

17 Oct 2018 16:50:06
Brutal for Vegas
Dumb for oilers
Easy no from St. Louis
Could see leafs interested.

17 Oct 2018 17:51:36
Oliers don't look good at all what are talk about.

17 Oct 2018 22:47:49
Ya .500 2-2 on a tough road trip Vs tough spinners to start the season. Looking anbsolitly terrible. They should have like 10 wins by now. 4 games into the season. Chill.
Gotta get through the next 6 games vs 100 point teams and then all will hopefully be fine. Very very tough start to the season.

17 Oct 2018 22:31:17
Why is that every shake up for a Canadian team includes parayko for a bunch of crap. seriously

I have stated this on hfboards last fee days and I will state it here.

At the moment defense is an issue for blues. They will not be trading parayko for a mediocre prospect, a small middle six forward and first in 2020 because oilers are goijng to be in bottom 10.

Just stop with parayko.

17 Oct 2018 22:33:29
That Vegas one is terrible lol marchessault has 134 pts in his last 159 games, 27 years old and signed for $5 mill for the next 6 years. lucic is 30, has 86 pts in his last 168 games and makes $6mill for 4 more years. I know points isn’t everything and Lucic does other things that marchessault just can’t, but in today’s NHL the difference between the 2 is not a B prospect lol talks last off-season were it would cost an A prospect or that 2018 1st rounder to ditch Lucics contract. How do you think you can ditch it and get back a far better/ younger player for half the price?!

18 Oct 2018 15:33:18
Yeah I'd have to agree with jim here the Vegas trade is horrendous marchessault is arguably Vegas best player.

16 Oct 2018 21:35:39
Long shot, but something to post!
Oilers: Nurse + Puljujarvi + B prospect like Jones
Leafs: Nylander + Gardiner
Leafs get immediate help on defence and a good right winger with a ton of potential and a B prospect for defence.
Oilers get help for Draisaitl and a puck moving dman which they need desperately.

Now cap space is an issue for the oilers:
Oilers: 1st round pick 2020 + Lucic + Benning
Panthers: Petrovic + Screviour

Oilers line up:
RNH - McDavid- Ratty
Rieder - Drai - Nylander
Khaira - Strome - Screviour
Caggiula - Brodziak- Kassian

Klefbom- Larsson
Gardiner- Petrovic
Russel - Bouchard

16 Oct 2018 23:06:42
I’d do it as a leaf fan.

17 Oct 2018 00:00:50
I think Nurse/ Pulj+a 2nd may be better than throwing in Jones imo. Leafs take it if its Jones, idk if EDM would. Seeing that your an Oiler fan, if you want Nylander/ Gardiner, I think that's a fair swap, Nylander >> Pulj, but Nurse >> Gardiner.

As for the Petrovic deal, I think that's not bad, I just don't know if Florida does it. That 1st is a great asset, but idk if they'd have enough cap to accommodate Lucic with Barkov/ Hub/ Ekblad deals. But if they do, I think that's pretty good.

17 Oct 2018 02:25:48
Ya Caleb Jones has actually had a super good trianing camp, pre season and start to the AHL season, I don't se then adding him just yet to this deal.
I don't mind the deal, but would just rather Nurse Jan Gardiner just because of the uncertainty of Gardiners contract rumors being high high $ after this season. I'm kinda torn here. Like the idea, but unsure really.

17 Oct 2018 02:47:09
Gardener got 50 points last year, I don’t think nurse is better. Maybe age and defensively a little bit but James the better skater and clearly more offensively gifted. Leafs lose that trade, oilers add the second and jones and even then not sure.

17 Oct 2018 05:36:15
Nurse is actually a great skater. Definitely love the idea of getting better now instead of waiting and waiting for the future. I’d hate to lose Nurse but I’d love Nylander on Draisaitl’s wing. Oil won’t have the cap for this even with the Florida trade I'm guessing. It would be an easy no if I was more confident in Puljujarvi but I’m still leaning towards no personally. Good thought and I also think there’s better D out there for Nylander.

17 Oct 2018 12:13:19
Far fetched but interesting. Lucic waiving for panthers would definitely take some convincing. But I’m at least intrigued.

17 Oct 2018 15:48:10
I think Lucic might waive for the panthers. It’s a warm place with a decent team and he won’t get much attention there. He doesn’t want to play for a Canadian team.
Plus, Lucic is a decent player but his contract is a burden, and as long as he is being played on the 2nd line, the team will suffer. It’s worth sending a 1st rd pick that shouldn’t be top 15 or so.
For me, I think the GM screwed up and the coach is stubborn. They should be gone first.

14 Oct 2018 23:41:23
Toronto: Nylander

Oilers: nurse , 2020 1st

15 Oct 2018 11:23:52
so you want nurse AND a potentially top 5 pick in 2020 for nurse?

15 Oct 2018 13:11:22
Well I think he’s an Oiler fan. So he wants Nylander for Nurse and a 1st.

15 Oct 2018 14:11:31
Yup easy no from oilers we need nurse lol and that first.

16 Oct 2018 10:26:04
I meant to see potentially top 5 and nurse for nylander. oops was tired. yeah no.

16 Oct 2018 10:27:42
Why would edmonton give up a potentially top 5 pick and nurse for Nylander?

14 Oct 2018 00:47:21
Leafs-Oilers trade

Leafs get

2nd Round pick

Oilers get


14 Oct 2018 01:48:38
I think Poolparty and a second on top of Nurse is a bit much coming from the Oilers, maybe picks and/ or a lesser prospect. Although again I don't think the Oilers can afford Nylander with how they have screwed themselves on the cap. Plus I doubt the Oilers can give up Nurse with the state of their defense this year.

14 Oct 2018 03:28:37
I like your username.

I think we would be losing too much depth of the RW in this trade. At 6’4” and over 200lbs, Puljujarvi is big, a big question mark that is.

Love the size of both these guys. If we lose Nylander though, we kinda need Brown. He brings stability at depth position that would be lacking with puljujarvi.

14 Oct 2018 03:31:20
Sorry don't care for the trade but awesome name.

12 Oct 2018 18:46:37
edm lucic and 2nd round pick
leafs nylander

12 Oct 2018 19:00:07
I am sure the Leafs would be all over this! They get Lucic AND a whole, honest to goodness 2nd round pick. WOW!

Seriously though the Lucic contract is one of the largest anvils in hockey history. I don't think his contract is leaving Edmonton any time soon.

12 Oct 2018 19:35:00
Lol! Some people.
Drop the 2nd. Leafs add a 1st and retain %50 whatever Nylander signs for.

Edm. Lucic.
Tor. Nylander (%50 retain), 2019 1st.


12 Oct 2018 19:46:50
If you want lucic gone, and want leafs to send Nylanders rights, it better start with Bouchard and start addding till dubas says stop lol

Atleast Half of Bouchards value is gone just getting lucic off the books. Then the other half can be a deposit on Nylander.

Leafs can then send Lucic to the Senators without retaining a penny (Phaneuf-esque)

12 Oct 2018 20:25:41
Lucic and a 2nd for future considerations.

12 Oct 2018 21:13:35
This is close. Not sure who would say no. Great post. 😂😂🙄😳🍻🍻.

12 Oct 2018 22:06:03
I figured if saying ‘lucic to the Senators’ doesn’t get Rambo out of hiding, nothing will lol.

13 Oct 2018 02:06:29
Ya, no brainer for leafs. Get a guy with all that leadership for the young guys at a cheaper price! Maybe a 4th though.

10 Oct 2018 23:31:42
Just thinking randomly here because I'm bored and have nothing to do but here we go.

Edm- Draisaitl and Nurse

Car- Aho and Faulk

This trade would never happen but what do you guys think about value and how would you react to something like this happening?
Hopefully this helps entertain some of you for a little bit while you're bored too, cheers!

11 Oct 2018 00:59:57
Pretty bad.
Post a Trouba trade, Gaurauntee entertainment.

11 Oct 2018 03:02:48
I agree yup Aho is much better/ Cheap then Drais as he’s a product of McDavid.

11 Oct 2018 05:44:18
Vbb, draisatal has not played much with McDavid in over a year, he c on his own line, he and aho may be close in value but rather have nurse than Faulk.

12 Oct 2018 02:54:11
Faulk being compared to Nurse is a joke Faulk is the god of Turnovers.

23 Sep 2018 17:15:57
Obviously not realistic based on some cap stuff but here we go.

WPG: Scheifele ($6.125M)
EDM: McDavid ($12.5M)

With Scheifele half the price of McDavid I think this would be intriguing for the Oilers. Scheifele is an elite #1 Center and McDavid is a generational #1 Center. I think the Oilers would do this trade and the Jets would too if they could afford him under the cap. Thoughts?

23 Sep 2018 17:32:44
Oilers retain %50 on McDavid and add Bouchard, 2019 1st, 2020 1st and Mcloed. And Jets just add Perreault to even it out.
Good post.

23 Sep 2018 18:14:34
Not even sure why people post trades with McDavid. I guess, the big question is. who is coming back from Winnipeg. Trouba.? A first. . at the end of the deal. do the Oilers even save any money, after the other peices coming back?

23 Sep 2018 18:16:02
I can’t tell if this is a troll or is dead serious.

If its a troll, not too impressive, still better than Rambo.

If its serious. Well. Uh. Well. Uh. Lol.

23 Sep 2018 18:54:14
Say what you want but Schifele was battling in the conference finals while McDavid was out golfing. 1 player can’t do it all like you oilers fans think. I’ll take Mackinnon+ Schifele over McDavid anyday.

23 Sep 2018 19:00:48
What tf was the point of this post lol.

23 Sep 2018 20:32:01
Every team would want McDavid but many would not want his contract as it limits what a team can pay for a supporting cast. Moot point as the Oilers will not be trading McD in the near future.

23 Sep 2018 22:36:29
Mcdavid at 12.5 I’m pretty sure all 30 other teams would want that lol.

23 Sep 2018 22:37:06
But yes if they don’t got the cap room then they can’t have him ^.

24 Sep 2018 00:08:07
absolutely brilliant post. this is why I go on this site. personally I'd trade mcdavid for milan lucic but they're already on the same team so sadly it wouldn't work.

24 Sep 2018 15:44:42
I wouldn’t think the jets would have to give up that much. I mean it’s a big contract they’re taking back and oilers do need a defenseman so maybe Myers and a 4th. love the post a lot of thought went into this!

24 Sep 2018 16:57:30
Drop the pick on Myers and Oilers would have to add to McDavid.

24 Sep 2018 17:43:44
Normal fans

Schifele and Liane for McDavid and Lucic

= no from Winnipeg but fair trade

Oilers fans-

Liane, Schifele, Trouba, Helleybuck, Ehlers And Connor for McDavid, Lucic, Talbot and Sekera

= huge no from oilers McDavid is untouchable as he’ll lead the oilers to multiple cups

Next season- Winnipeg makes conference finals oilers miss playoffs.

24 Sep 2018 19:18:23
I’ve made the statement before on here that Winnipeg should want about as much for scheifele in a trade as Edmonton would want for Mcdavid because he’s 80% of the player signed long term for 45% of the money. However I would never suggest oilers actually trade mcdavid lol.

24 Sep 2018 19:19:49
My thinking was if a team approached the oilers and asked what it would take to get mcdavid. Oilers name the package. That team says forget it and calls jets instead, the package shouldn’t be a whole lot less if I’m jets management.

17 Sep 2018 17:36:22
CGY - S Bennett & M Jankowski
MTL - A Lehkonen, 2019 3rd-Round Pick & 2020 1st-Round Pick

EDM - Jesse Puljujärvi & Milan Lucic
MTL - Victor Mete & Nikita Sherbak

J Drouin - M Jankowski - J Puljujärvi
T Tatar - P Danault - M Domi
M Lucic - S Bennett - C Hudon
P Byron - T Plekanec - A Shaw

17 Sep 2018 19:06:17
I think habs take their chances with their 1st and 3rd round picks than settling on Jankowski as a 1st line centre. Jankowski and Bennett are decent middle of the pack players, habs have those. They will keep the picks and try to find elite players.

18 Sep 2018 13:56:37
Montreal should definitely keep their picks cause they're going to stink, but I think jankowski is better than most would think, got 17 goals in 72 games as a rookie playing 3rd-4th line minutes.

18 Sep 2018 22:04:18
No way from Montreal on both.

12 Sep 2018 03:39:52
Jets trade Trouba, Petan and Lemieux to



Nurse and Nugent-Hopkins

Oilers get cap space and 2 young affordable NHL’ers and if Trouba doesn’t sign with EDM flip him for a nice package.

12 Sep 2018 05:16:49
Lol. Noooo.

12 Sep 2018 05:33:02
Dont think pecan and lemieux make up for nuge.

12 Sep 2018 06:49:11
No from oil.

12 Sep 2018 15:06:28
No from both teams.

12 Sep 2018 15:53:24
Lmao this is a hell Fukin yes from Winnipeg. Wow.

12 Sep 2018 15:57:09
As I've said before, Trouba won't be traded before the end of the season. Also, RNH and his contract is not worth the downgrade from Trouba to Nurse.

12 Sep 2018 16:52:13
What am i reading? Jets would take this 100%.
Oilers would never accept that offer though.

12 Sep 2018 18:16:46
apparently if you’re a Winnipeg fan you have 0 brain cells.

12 Sep 2018 18:17:18
TT, why would the Jets do this? RNH would be a luxury, not a need and the downgrade from Trouba to Nurse would hurt the Jets far more than RNH would help. The Jets are contending now and this trade makes the Jets worse.

You need to consider team needs in a trade. There is no reason for the Jets to do this.

12 Sep 2018 18:33:24
Wow. Crazy jets homers. Lol.

12 Sep 2018 20:35:56
So, the Jets fans are homers, yet no one can tell us how this makes the Jets better. RNH produces about the same as Little, is worse defensively and has a bad contract. Plus to take on him we also have to take a large downgrade from Trouba to Nurse.

So, please detail how this makes the Jets better this year.

This should be fun!

12 Sep 2018 22:43:40
memarcusjoe sometimes its a waste of time and energy asking certain posters to explain why they thing the Jets wouldn't do sill trade proposals. They think the Jets will be happy to take other teams headaches off their hands for the Jets proven good players. The Jets don't make stupid trades, toy with their chemistry or sign free agents to crazy contracts. That is why the Jets are the #2 ranked team in the NHL, with a deep prospect pool that makes them a favorite to win the cup. Let the bottom feeders post silly uneducated reply's as to why the Jets should make trades that only the Oilers or Canadiens GMs would make. Try to ignore the childish responses to you posts.

13 Sep 2018 00:41:02
Nurse would probably be your number 1 left D. Jets centre depth isn’t the greatest and RNH would improve that. Playing with Ehlers and Liane I’m sure he’d put up amazing numbers. Not as good as his point per game with McDavid but maybe 65 ish? Also Nurse has the potential to put up as good or better numbers than Trouba this season.

13 Sep 2018 02:40:50
I certainly agree Islandjet. I was just hoping to hear some of the crazy reasoning as to why the Jets would do it.

I mean RNH produces the same as Little, is worse defensively and costs more, so that can't be the reason. So, we're not getting much help there. Plus we have to take a major downgrade from Trouba to Nurse. An unneeded player like RNH with his bad contract isn't enough incentive.

It would have been fun to see their logic.

13 Sep 2018 03:05:48
‘Erik karlsson and matt duchene for nic petan and mathieu perreault.

Oh wait duchenes a luxur and so is karlson cause all jets players are good and we can't upset team chemistry because wre the best team in the league and don't need to make adjustments. ’

Cmon guys be real. I don't care if RNH is a luxury. he's not a cap dump and is bettter than Nic Petan and whatever. You take that deal. Idc.

13 Sep 2018 05:33:07
Ebs, Nurse would only be on the second pairing. He's not as good as Morrissey. Also, at this point in his development I highly doubt Nurse will ever be as good as Trouba is now.

An unneeded player like RNH just isn't worth the downgrade on defense. Contending teams don't make trades just for of it.

13 Sep 2018 14:26:43
I would change it this way.

Edmonton Trades

Jets Trade

13 Sep 2018 15:41:20
It's an absolute waste of time trying to have conversations with you homers tho. You've proven just how completely bad a homers you guys are the last bunch of months getting called out by everyone in this site. It's entertaining tho.

13 Sep 2018 15:47:09
Congrats Pinball. You've taken a bad trade for the Jets and made it worse. Now the Jets are giving away the two best players in the deal.

13 Sep 2018 17:49:46
memarcusjoe and I aren't posting these ridiculous trade proposals, just commenting how they wouldn't help the Jets but would rob them of their talented draft and develop players. Not being blind homers but realistic in the trade proposals. If RNH and Nurse are so great why are they constantly being peddled in trades? The Jets don't need these players to improve as they are one of the top teams in the NHL. Some of these may look good at the draft if they can't re-sign Trouba long term, but for now the Jets would have no I repeat NO interest in the Oilers winger, as he can't cut it as a center, RNH and Nurse who would be lucky to be on the Jets 2nd pairing. So grow up and stop with the insults and give real hockey reasons why the Jets would want to do these trades that only help the Oilers.

13 Sep 2018 19:21:11
Islandjet is right we have all these Leaf and Oiler homers telling us how great these trades are for the Jets, yet they can't tell us how it makes the Jets better.

@ yupp. Here's your chance to make your point. Please detail how downgrading on defense and taking on an overpaid center makes the Jets better?

13 Sep 2018 19:46:29
Nurse is rarely ever in trades so “peddling” is just wrong. And when RNH is in trades it’s usually other teams fans trading for him.
I’ll agree with Nuge being a little overplayed but he can’t cut it at centre? Lol he has a reputation for being a really good two way guy and people loved him at centre. It just so happens the Oil have two centres that are better than him and weak winger depth.
Your argument and reply’s to why this is bad is just “little is better than RNH and morrisey is better than Nurse” good arguments.
Nuge would 100% make your team better and would probably thrive on your second line with the talent that’s on it and he would make little expandable. Trouba is only in trade rumours because it doesn’t look like he wants to sign in Winnipeg. The jets have good RD depth so it would 100% make sense to get solid value for him and upgrade other parts of your team while getting a really solid young LD (a position that isn’t very deep on the jets) in return.

13 Sep 2018 22:45:28
You make good points, but the thing you're forgetting is that to get the improvement you say we would get in RNH, we have to give up Trouba. The cost of losing Trouba and only getting Nurse hurts the Jets far more than any supposed benefit RNH would give us. So, the Jets end up being worse after this trade. That's why it doesn't work for Winnipeg.

13 Sep 2018 23:06:39
Well I disagree that they get worse but one of my points is it would be a smart move because it’s looking like Trouba won’t resign.

14 Sep 2018 01:01:56
Finally a really good and thought out explanation of why you think this trade is fair for both teams. Although I don't agree that this trade makes the Jets better I really respect you for posting a good defense of your position. I just wish some other poster on this site took time to explain why they liked or disliked a post.

14 Sep 2018 02:27:56
Trouba resigning is a problem for next summer.

11 Sep 2018 17:35:08
Oil: Kassian

Canes: 5th round.

11 Sep 2018 19:04:44
Who would ever want Kassian? Replacement level player at best.

11 Sep 2018 20:24:53
His cap is 1.95M. bit steep for him but i'm sure someone will give you a 5th for him.

12 Sep 2018 04:00:20
I’d take him on the leafs for a 5th. As long as his extra curricular activities are under control, which I think they are. The leafs could use some grit and he can skate.

12 Sep 2018 05:15:45
I agree with Leafs17. exactly the type of player Leafs need. can be nasty and tough, but also, picks his play up a bit the bigger the stage .

12 Sep 2018 05:17:51
I really like him in the bottom six and the dressing room of the Oilers. I wouldn't trade him for a 5th.

12 Sep 2018 05:41:33
I’m not saying he has value but he’s a psycho. Lol he gets me fired up I couldn’t imagine how fired up the rest of the team gets when he gets going.

09 Sep 2018 00:54:34
Max Pacioretty LW
Karl Alzner D
2nd 2020

Tyler Seguin C
Jason Spezza C

Shea Weber D
Andrew Shaw C
2nd 2019

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins C
Milan Lucic LW
1st 2020

09 Sep 2018 05:20:56
Where to start. Seguin>>patches, he’s younger puts up more points and centerman have more value than wingers and Spezza has one more year compared to Alzner s 4 of bad contract so that makes zero sense for Dallas. 2nd trade Webber tho still very good is aging and declining and another what, years left on his deal for a young 2nd line centerman with a decent contract and Shaw who is younger and cheaper for Lucic And oilers add the first? Wow, you’re not a Habs fan are ya?

09 Sep 2018 06:23:02
Uh no from oil.

09 Sep 2018 14:07:35
Oilers should take that and run they’re dumping Lucic a below average 4th liner being paid 6 million a year. Nuge and the 1st are good but Weber is one of the best dman in the NHL still and is on a criminally underrated contract. 7.8 million is a steal for a #1 dman and the acquiring team can trade him back to Nashville for a boat load so they avoid cap recaptures in the final 3 years when his front loaded salary falls down to 1 million.

09 Sep 2018 16:46:42
So what does Lucic have to do this season for you to eat your words vbb?
Because he is certainly now a "below average 4th liner" or an "AHL player" as you've called him before. You're just spewing hate is all. I'm not at all praising the guy or anything, don't put words in my mouth now.
Simply saying that you're crazy over exaggerating as usual.

09 Sep 2018 18:20:40
Do something other then hold McDavid back at 2 million Lucic would be a good signing but 6 million is horrendous.

09 Sep 2018 18:48:36
Ok. So are you back peddling now?
You say he's an "AHL player" and a "below average 4th liner"

09 Sep 2018 20:40:27
@VBB If he were a “below average 4th line” or “AHL player” he wouldn’t be a good signing at $2 mill lol so somethings wrong with your assessment

for $3-3.5 mill to play on someone’s 3rd line and provide physicality and maybe a net from presence on a PP he would be good. At $6 mill he is either an extremely overpaid 3rd liner or you’re forced to play him as a top line player which he just isn’t.

IMO if teams are still prepared to pay Leo Komarov $3 mill on a 4 year term (I like Leo but am so glad we aren’t the ones giving him that), then there’s definitely a place for Lucic. But with his current contract, he’s next to worthless on the trade market unfortunately.

09 Sep 2018 22:19:52
Lucic to Leo komarov is a good comparison both are pretty worthless aside from a slight 3rd line scoring capability and a intemdation prseance. Lucic would not crack the leafs roster there for he’d be an AHLer and if he did make the leafs Roster on LW Andreas Johanson, Hyman And Kappanen would be ahead of him as a LW. As RW Marner, Nylander, Grundstrom and Brown would be ahead of him on the depth chart. Obviously on most teams he’s not a AHL player but nothing more then a 3rd liner.

10 Sep 2018 01:24:29
Wow finally something I can agree on, Lucic no longer is a top 6 player imo but as a third liner he can still contribute well. Or he bounces back to 45-50 point player which I’m hoping he does if he sticks top 6 this year.

10 Sep 2018 06:25:05
Well Patches is a GoldenKnight now.

05 Sep 2018 10:29:25
Semi realistic karlson trade

Edm: Bouchard,Yamamoto,Strome

Ottawa: Karlson

06 Sep 2018 04:16:24
If Yamamoto and strome show signs of improvement this year think this would be fairly good trade for ottawa.

06 Sep 2018 05:57:40
Yamamoto has played 9 nhl games I’m sure he’s improved haha.

06 Sep 2018 12:28:42
Oh, forgot players don't improve from getting more playing time in the ahl instead of riding the bench in the nhl. That makes a lot of sense now that I think of it.

06 Sep 2018 15:18:13
Cap space? They wouldn't be able to afford him after this year.

06 Sep 2018 18:08:20
No thanks due to ages and contracts.
Sekera or Russell would have to be involved as well.

07 Sep 2018 00:50:34
Shoots are you dumb or are you joking ya lost me man.

08 Sep 2018 03:58:17
Hey mang, I'm stupid not dumb, that word offends me.

30 Aug 2018 13:23:19
Oilers; Nylander

TO; Larsson

Oilers; Faulk

Hurricanes; Caggiula, prospect (Mantha or Lagesson), 2019 3rdp, conditional 2020 2rdp (if he does not re-sign then its a 2020 5rdp)

30 Aug 2018 15:46:34
The Nylander for Larson trade would sure help the Leafs pathetic defense big time, but the Oilers defense is equally poor so this trade is a no go. I can't see the Hurricanes doing the Faulk trade.

30 Aug 2018 16:26:45
That “Pathetic” defense is better then the 2 time Stanley cup winning champions Pittsburgh Penguins they proved offense/ Goltending>>>Defense when the crushed Nashville. I’d personally hold onto Nylander as if I were trading him for a dman he’d need to have atleast a iittle bit of offensive flair.

30 Aug 2018 19:04:24
Not trading Nylander for Larson lol He’s a good Dman and the type of guy we need, but I wouldn’t give up that kind of high end offensive potential for him. That already happened once, and obviously I don’t expect nylander to ever win the Hart, but oilers would undo that trade a thousand times in a row if they could.

30 Aug 2018 21:17:20
Islandjet must be 12 years old who just watched his first NHL season with daddy. I happen to be a bit older and remember Winnipeg being a pathetic team for years. You guys think your sh*t doesn’t stink.

31 Aug 2018 23:21:24
Even if those moves were to happen, Which they wouldn't. Oilers don't have the cap room.
Nylander will be making more than Larsson and Faulk is making more than Drake.
Oilers have about $5M in cap docs right now to sign RFA Nurse to a bridge deal still.
I believe there's a bunch of D in the same position as Nurse all awaiting to see similar deals signed first, Morrisey, Hanifin, Theodore and Nurse.

31 Aug 2018 23:31:06
I am pretty sure tor wouldn't trade nylander for larsson.

31 Aug 2018 23:32:14
A defenseman like Larsson would be a pretty good return for Nylander. But, the Oilers aren't deep enough on D that they can afford to make this swap.

31 Aug 2018 23:33:38
Larsson would be a good return for Nylander on the Leafs side. However, I don't think the Oilers can afford to give up Larsson.

31 Aug 2018 23:34:53
Larsson would actually be pretty good value for Nylander. However, I don't think the Oilers could afford to lose Larsson.

31 Aug 2018 23:41:24
Lol just because Chia was stupid enough to trade Hall for Larsson does not mean Dubas is going to trade Nylander for him. Larsson is pretty meh IMO.

01 Sep 2018 00:21:31
Lol is Menarcusjoe trying to make it look like 3 people are trying to make others believe 3 people are sharing the same bias opinion.

01 Sep 2018 13:11:53
I agree that Larsson is meh, I just meant that if Tor wanted to trade Nylander for a defenseman, 1 for 1. Larsson would be the about the level they would be looking at.

02 Sep 2018 11:19:50
Larsson was best D in WC when he played with OEL, oilers just don't use him right.

02 Sep 2018 16:16:52
I definitely wouldn’t say he was the “ best deffensman in the WC “.

29 Aug 2018 17:00:17
to edm: matt duchene and kirk karlsson

to ott: leon draisaitl and oscar klefbom

29 Aug 2018 17:11:54
Duchene and Draisaitl are pretty close, implying Karlsson~Klefbom. Not even close. EDM needs to add.

29 Aug 2018 17:46:24
Don’t think Edmonton would be interested in that Kirk Karlsson guy.

29 Aug 2018 17:47:04
Ah yes, Kirk Karlsson. Erik's lesser known half brother.

29 Aug 2018 18:49:42
Duchene is also not close to Drat imo he's dropped off.

29 Aug 2018 20:31:07
Draisatl definitely has the edge on Duchene. Although he has a big contract, atleast it’s cost certainty because Duchene is up in July. However the gap between them doesn’t close the gap between Klefbom and Karlsson. Oilers add quite a bit.

29 Aug 2018 21:38:59
Draisaitl >> Duchene

29 Aug 2018 23:53:32

30 Aug 2018 05:59:29
Lol not going to try again.

27 Aug 2018 21:54:58
OTT: Karlsson

- R. Nugent Hopkins
- O. Klefbom
- '19 1st
- '20 2nd


OTT: Klefbom

WPG: Trouba

Dzingel - Duchene - Boedker
Nuge - Brown - Stone
Tkachuk - Pageau - Ryan
Smith - Chlapik - White

Chabot - Trouba
Wolanin - Ceci
Boroweicki - Wideman

27 Aug 2018 22:15:13
So Sens Get Trouba, RNH, 1st and 2nd for a year of Karlsson?! Lol not going to happen.

27 Aug 2018 22:28:07
There is no chance the Jets trade Trouba for Klefbom even though the trade is fair. 3 of the Jets next 4 NHL ready d-men are left shots so the need for a lefty is not as big as it was a year or two ago. The Jets will either sign Trouba long term or move him at the 2019 draft. There are many teams that want a skilled #1 pairing r-shot d-man and will line up to get Trouba from the Jets.

27 Aug 2018 22:36:42
Yeah that is preposterous.

27 Aug 2018 23:13:12
I highly doubt the Oilers would give up that much for one year of Karlsson. Plus, the Jets wouldn't do a 1 for 1 swap of Trouba and Klefbom.

27 Aug 2018 23:50:24
Well i would assume that there would be an extension in place for Karl.

27 Aug 2018 23:53:27
And wpg only gets klefbom for Trouba. jeez.

28 Aug 2018 00:16:03
If the jets think that trouba won't sign long term (still not sure if it's he doesn't want to be in Winnipeg or his agent and him are overvaluing him) then I'd do that trade.

28 Aug 2018 01:09:38
That would be great for the Sens if they could pull this off. I can't see these trades happening.

28 Aug 2018 01:28:52
That's too much from EDM, take out huge and put in a good prospect.

28 Aug 2018 03:49:43
Lol. If Klefbom could get Trouba then I think why wouldn't Edm just do that separate trade and keep Nuge and the picks. Seems like a better deal there.

28 Aug 2018 16:23:08
@Hoff saying you assume there’s a contract in place for Karlsson after I say it’s too much for 1 year is fine if you’re just commenting on the thread. But it’s your thread lol if it's contract in place, just say it is or it isn’t, you don’t need to assume.

29 Aug 2018 00:08:17
@Unbiased Jim . I thought you would be able to assume that there would be . guess not. there's a reason teams are allowed to talk extensions with Karl before a trade.

29 Aug 2018 15:14:36
I’m aware of that. But he’s going to get traded to the best offer regardless (or should) . If he only wants to sign in Tampa, and yzerman has wind of this, he may not offer as much as he should, because technically he’s only trading for him for this year too if he would sign there for free in July. So Maybe oilers or Dallas etc offer more, or atleast an equal package and it gets him out of their division (which apparently matters to Ottawa) . There’s still multiple options with him. There’s no guarantee he ends up for the next 8 years at his #1 choice right away.

23 Aug 2018 22:56:50
Oil: Caggiula

Canes: McKeown.

27 Aug 2018 11:55:18
one of the more fair deals i've seen on here for a while.

27 Aug 2018 11:57:53
i like it, one of the more fair posts i've seen here.

21 Aug 2018 21:07:23
Oil: Caggiula

Devils: Quennville.

22 Aug 2018 00:26:28
for what purpose?

22 Aug 2018 18:09:42
Why nawt like what are ya sayin.

18 Aug 2018 18:26:59
Oil: Caggiula

Leafs: Leivo.

18 Aug 2018 20:23:16
I think the Oilers would value Drake more right now.
And I myself think Drakes ceiling/ potential is higher than Leivo also.

18 Aug 2018 21:04:24
Haha I just don’t think Drake is anything special but I kinda agree with you. He was rushed to the oilers 🙄.

18 Aug 2018 21:30:19
I personally think Caggiula’s ceiling is low. Might be best suited for a 4th line, special teams guy. But that’s if he can improve on special teams. I actually just read an article on oilers nation about how he brought all of his linemates down statistically, including McDavid. With Reider and Aberg I don’t even see a spot for Caggiula now. I’d rather the two of them and Khaira over him. He and Kassian can split time on the 4th line maybe.

19 Aug 2018 03:31:06
I hope Aberg steps up and can be a decent player this year and not a booze bag lol.

19 Aug 2018 12:00:13
I could see this happening, nice trade McJesus.
