Canucks demko

Edm jesse puljujärvi Ethan bear

22 Nov 2017 10:36:45
Big no from oil. Demko is a wildcard and they have no problem in the goalie department.

22 Nov 2017 08:31:39
A couple of Oilers trades:


Max Pacioretty + Brendan Gallagher to the Edmonton Oilers in exchange for Ryan Nugent-Hopkins + Ryan Strome + 2018 1st Round Draft Pick (lottery protected for 2018; non-lottery protected for 2019) + 2019 2nd Round Pick.

Patches and Gallagher immediately become two of the best wingers on Edmonton. Drais can move back to centre, and the Oil can finally have spread-out offence.

As for Montreal, they get a 1st, which is a nice asset (in terms of future, and in terms of trade bait if need be), and RNH, who could be a nice first line centre, but if Montreal starts to fall back, then he can be a valuable trading asset come the deadline.


Kris Russell + Kailer Yamamoto to the Philadelphia Flyers in exchange for Travis Sanheim + Scott Laughton.

Philadelphia then sends Kris Russell (25% Retention) to the Chicago Blackhawks in exchange for Cody Franson and a 2018 2nd Round Pick.


This one probably won't sit well with Oil fans, and makes sense why. Yamamoto is promising, and has shown that he can possible be a good NHLer. However, I check nhl. com, and I saw that Edmonton's leading scorer for blueliners is Oscar Klefbom, with six point - and a minus ten rating, Yes, Sekera is out, but really, is he going to be that offensive blueliner? In my opinion, I don't see it that way. Sanheim is a quality blueliner, who, in the future, can be a nice offensive dman. Klefbom is more two-way, Adam Larsson is defensive, Darnell Nurse is defensive, Sekera is middling, and aging, and idk about Benning, but from his stats, he doesn't look like an offensive blueliner. Kris Russell is defensive, but with Nurse and Larsson being younger and most likely better, Russell can be expandable. Plus, with another blueline coming in, someone needs to be dropped.



Patrick Maroon - Connor McDavid - Brendan Gallagher
Max Pacioretty - Leon Draisaitl - Drake Caggiula
Milan Lucic - Mark Letestu - Michael Cammalleri
Jujhar Khaira - Scott Laughton - Zach Kassian

Oscar Klefbom - Adam Larsson
Travis Sanheim - Darnell Nurse
Matt Benning - Eric Gryba/ **Andrej Sekera

Cam Talbot
Laurent Brossoit

Yeah, its not ideal. But when you have only 50 goals through 20 games, somethings got to change. that's 30 goals behind Toronto, on 2 fewer games. I still believe that Edmonton has a better nucleus than Toronto, but the scoring needs to be there. And as much as many wouldn't want it, change needs to happen, cause Mike Cammalleri ain't going to magically score 20 goals.

And all four teams mentioned (Philly, Chicago, Montreal and Edmonton) need some sort of change. And this could help.

22 Nov 2017 08:50:38
You put a lot of thought into it and i like it but i don't think oilers will give up yamamoto for that when he's proved more than sanheim in such a short period. I would dangle yamamoto to carolina to pry one of their of defencemen as they are looking for forwards. Also maybe coyotes could be an ideal trading partner if oilers want wingers i'm sure they could pry Dulair or Reider out for a good price. Good post man

22 Nov 2017 08:21:38
Tor: Weber
Mtl: marner + 5th 2018

Col: Pacioretty + juulsen
Mtl: Barrie + 1st 2018 + 4th 2018

Edm: Price + Galchenyuk
Mtl: RNH + Nurse

Vegas: MCcarron + Davidson + 2nd 2018 + 5th 2018
Mtl: Perron

Drouin RNH marner
Lehky danault gally
Hudon pleky perron
Scherbak shaw byron

Barrie alzner
Nurse petry
Mete Benn/morrow/schlemko

Pretty reasonable trades, toronto gets top Dman and solves signing 3 young kids next season, colorado gets scoring winger and d prospect, edmonton gets needed goalie and winger, vegas get future help/ picks for rental. Thoughts?

22 Nov 2017 11:49:04
big no from tor.

22 Nov 2017 12:25:17
Np from mtl Marner is exactly what we don't need. Another fragile winger.

22 Nov 2017 14:44:56
1st trade- bad contract, Aging Dman for ELC player. Those three factors make it a no go.

2nd trad- close but at this point i highly doubt that Col who is retooling again will take an agin forward for Barrie and give up a lottery pick first.

3rd-Edm has a goalie and thier defense is the problem right now. Giving up a gritty dman for a struggling goalie and a struggling winger is not what edm needs.

4th-Vegas lacks scoring wingers and has a plethora of average dmen. If your trying to get perron think a 1st rnd pick.

22 Nov 2017 08:29:18
If Canadiens are rebuilding;

Oilers: Weber, Gallagher, Shaw

Canadiens: Draisaitl, Benning, Strome

22 Nov 2017 12:26:06
No thank from mtl, Take strome put and add Hopkins and it's closer.

22 Nov 2017 08:28:58
Oilers / CBJ

Oilers: Savard, Anderson

CBJ: RNH, Caggiula, Benning/(Russell)

22 Nov 2017 03:02:48
Canucks: Gudbranson and a 3rd round pick
Oilers: Nugent Hopkins

Both not fitting with their teams and OIlers need D and Canucks need a C.

22 Nov 2017 03:31:03
Lol bottom line D for a 50 pts per season center.

22 Nov 2017 04:12:00
How does RNH not fit with his team?

22 Nov 2017 05:16:52
Lol. Nuge not fitting with team? Whaaaaat?
Pay attention and don't be clueless.

22 Nov 2017 10:08:01
rnh is second in points and 3 in plus minus how is he not fitting in.

22 Nov 2017 00:07:52
MTL: Carey Price and Phillip Danault

EDM: RNH and Cam Talbot.

22 Nov 2017 03:32:02
You really must be high.

21 Nov 2017 22:32:35
To Calgary: Cam Ward
To Edmonton: Eddie Lack
To Carolina: 4th Round pick (Edmonton) and Troy Brouwer (25% Retained)

Calgary gets a better backup. Edmonton gets a better backup. Carolina gets some forward help and a late pick for their backup that they can bring up Nedeljkovic, anyways they probably would've let Ward go in the offseason.

22 Nov 2017 05:20:02
What's Edm going to do with Lack?
Lack sure as heck won't be bumping either of Talbot or Brossiot down. Lol.
No. To Edm Brossiot is fine in the backup role. He's only gotten the start twice. I think he did great in those games and needs more starts. No chance they make a move for Lack. Come on man.

22 Nov 2017 14:33:00
Broissoitt has played 5 games posting a 3.62 GAA and .865 SV%. I think Lack could beat him out for a backup role.

21 Nov 2017 19:06:53
Oilers: RNH

Habs: Patches

1 for 1.

21 Nov 2017 19:29:46
RNH is younger than patches, but that doesn't make up the difference here. I think patches could get a better return that this.

21 Nov 2017 19:55:12
Contracts and age, it's not too bad a deal straight up. Maybe slight small add in from Edm (not Nurse, Not Puljujarvi)
Patches $4.5 this and next year then a big raise Edm for resign him.
Nuge $6M this and three more years and 5 years younger.
If Nuge keeps this year up its not as bad a trade as Habs fans will come on screaming.

21 Nov 2017 21:50:45
If they were the same age and $$. Without a doubt patches has more value straight up.

21 Nov 2017 22:05:43
Who would be the small add? I'd like to see RNH and Benning. but then Habs would have to add on with Patches. would Chicago's 2nd do it?

21 Nov 2017 22:27:22
Nuge + Benning for Patches + 2nd is pretty close IMO.
Would just not be good to trade Benning right now while Sekera is still out. But that trade isn't bad.
It's interesting anyways.

22 Nov 2017 01:23:58
What about Patch, Sherbac and 1st ( early) for Nuge and Pulj.

22 Nov 2017 02:33:57
Add Bear and it's fair imo.

22 Nov 2017 04:15:32
Ya. I think your right Yup.

22 Nov 2017 05:22:25
Damnit! I forgot to include Bear. He is not a small add on. Jeez. Leave it to GoldenShowers to come in with the delusion on a decent thread. Not surprised.

21 Nov 2017 05:11:12
EDM: RNH, Puljarvai, Nurse
CAR: Faulk, Hannifin

22 Nov 2017 08:25:56
Who's going to play forward for Edmonton?

21 Nov 2017 02:49:36

Edm:Draisalt, Klefbom

21 Nov 2017 04:28:52
Draisaitl + RNH
Keller + Strome.

21 Nov 2017 04:45:59
Honestly wouldn’t even want that.

21 Nov 2017 05:12:34
Drai is not getting traded.

20 Nov 2017 23:44:19
Hearing that McDavid needs a winger and Toronto could be the place to find one.

EDM : William Nylander and Jake Gardiner

TOR: Darnell Nurse and Ryan Strome

Then Vegas and Toronto

VGN: Tyler Bozak and Calle Rosen

TOR: Colin Miller

21 Nov 2017 02:36:00
And you need conscience.

21 Nov 2017 02:37:54
Chiarelli has put Oilers in a hole
Toronto ain't helping Oilers out.

21 Nov 2017 03:15:27
Chiarelli isn't he problem at all. The players are underperforming. Don't try and deflect how terrible your GM has been.

21 Nov 2017 04:40:16
Seriously yup what are you talking about. Chiarelli is far worse than Bergevin
Chiarelli worsts moves:
-Hall for a super defensive dman
-Reinhart for Barzal + 2d

-Price 10.5 mil 8yrs
-Radulov and Markov'

Chiarelli did long terms mistakes that Bergevin didn't do

With a better GM. Oilers wouldn't be in that lack of wings if the kept Hall and Eberle. Could have become One of the most dangerous first line Hall McDavid Eberlee.

21 Nov 2017 05:14:25
KH: how is subban for weber and sergachev for drouin not mistakes?

21 Nov 2017 11:13:50
Keyhabs you're missing a few. subban, sergachev, andrighetto, beaulieu etc.

21 Nov 2017 11:33:45
Well Weber is an eating minutes Defense and Sergachev is playing with Kuch and Stamkos its not like Sergachev will have more points than Drouin at the end of the season.

21 Nov 2017 12:39:11
Why isn’t that possible? He has more points than drouin right now hahaha. He’s a defensemen not a forward, he’s not consistently playing with stammer and kuch, come on. Stop making excuses, mtl made a bad trade.

21 Nov 2017 14:37:20
I'm a habs fan. PC>MB.

21 Nov 2017 19:08:56
If you knew what you were talking about, they played Hall with McDavid first 30 some games and they had zero chemistry. Hall liked to run his own line and it just didn't work. Hall and Drai actually had really good chemistry.
So that line would never have happened. And it would not have been a great line because Eberlazy and Hall didn't play great defense and they both have zero grit for the corners, down low cycle and to protect McDavid when other teams go after him cause they know Hall and Eberle aren't going to do rubbish about it. That's why you see Maroon with him And the winger situation, They thought Puljujarvi would have been ready. But he had a terrible camp. Looks good now tho. Hopefully keeps it up and only gets better. PC hasn't put the team in a hole, the players are underperforming. In fact, PC actually traded a player playing terrible for a better player! That's a great move.
I'm not even going to point out all the terrible moves your GM has made that you purposely missed.
And your over exaggeration of others.

22 Nov 2017 08:24:59
Maybe the players were over performing last year. How the hell do you know?

22 Nov 2017 08:26:52
Bergevin has definitely made his mistakes and they’re paying for it now. On the other hand, the oilers have made some terrible moves since PC got there too. I was a big fan of him in Boston and thought he would be great there.

But that Lucic contract is atrocious, he never drafted draisatl, and Leon wanted 5years 5mill last off-season and PC bet against him, costing them 8x8.5 instead (much like Bergevins bridge deal with subban bit him in the a$$ when he won a Norris and got $72 mill) . He gets zero credit for mcdavid because someone who has never watched hockey would have picked him first and signed him to whatever contract he wanted. His trade for Reinhart gave the isles Beauvillier AND Barzal with his picks while Reinhart was exposed to Vegas and has cleared waivers twice since.

Hall for Larsson will be debated for a long time, I give him a pass on that because he got a really good player in a position they desperately needed, but trading eberle when his value was at his lowest and they didn’t need the cap space till Mcdavids deal kicks in next year is a mistake. Especially now when there’s rumours they’re going to give up assets for a skilled winger.

Fighting between those two GMs performance in the last cpl years is like fighting over who’s the taller midget.

22 Nov 2017 08:28:36
Agree with Turkey.
Hey there's a trade. Habs trade Bergevin and a pick.
We get Chiarelli, hope he speaks French cause that's the only prerequisite.

20 Nov 2017 19:59:04
Bob McKenzie is saying he's hearing possible talks happening between Toronto and Phoenix. OEL ha seemed to maybe expressed he won't be signing there after next season when he's an UFA. Nylander for OEL is what's mentioned by him.
Never know, It could happen. But I believe it's a true rumor that those two teams have had talks. I'm not sure if it's a rumor or suggestion Of those two names being talked.
I trust Mckenzie, Friedman, Dreger, Duthie the most in the hockey world. They are the most connected "inside". But a rumor and a suggestion are two completely different things.

Another suggestion was that Toronto and Vancouver are talking.
Possibly a Kappanen and 1st for Tanev or would a better prospect need to be.

I don't think these suggestions or tumors are far off.

20 Nov 2017 20:40:41
Wouldn't trade Nylander if I was Tor.

20 Nov 2017 20:47:08
Ya it's a tough one. I wouldn't either.
Even tho OEL is having a down year. It's on a rubbish team.
Only thing I would be worried about is what's his asking price when he's a UFA after next season?! I would want to have an idea of that, especially if I was to potentially give up Nylander for him.

Just remember, This post isn't my words. It's from
Bob McKenzies mouth about this "rumor"

20 Nov 2017 22:34:45
Bob Mckenzies article went on to say that he hasn't heard of any talks. And that he doesn't think the coyotes are interested in trading oel or that Toronto is interested in trading either if the big 3.
And he also said that they wouldn't move oel for a winger which is how they view nylander.

20 Nov 2017 23:22:24
No. He said that there are talks. Just not %100 what they are about.
Like i said. That's the rumor. And then the suggestion is it would take Nylander for OEL.
They need to trade OEL, He's not resigning there when he is a UFA after next season.
Rumors and suggestions are two different things, as I have repeadetly said.

20 Nov 2017 18:23:43
Oilers trade
Talbot, RNH and Nurse

Canadians trade
Price and Pacioretty.

20 Nov 2017 19:54:33
There is 29 other teams in the league. Let's try and use some of them for a change.

20 Nov 2017 20:41:18
Totally agree yup.

21 Nov 2017 00:02:47
Ya. let's trade Price to Florida or somewhere. jus new Price rumours would be fun I guess. since this seems to be the Montreal Canadiens/ Carey Price trade rumour page now. however, hearing other players rumoured would be fun?

Let's talk bout Tavares? Where is he going to end up? And please . let's not say Montreal.

21 Nov 2017 19:10:17
Bring someone else up Sosa, He's obviously going to Montreal. 🙊🙊. Sorry.

21 Nov 2017 19:20:55
Pretty lopsided trade for Montreal.

21 Nov 2017 22:08:07
Anyone I say is somehow going to get linked to Montreal. Lol.

20 Nov 2017 08:58:51
McDavid needs wingers!! I got a solution!!

Edm : K Yamamoto + J Puljujarvi + R Nugent-Hopkins
Cgy : Johnny Gaudreau + S Bennett + R Andersson

J Gaudreau - C McDavid - L Draisaitl
P Maroon - S Bennett - D Cagguila

K Yamamoto - S Monahan - M Ferland
M Tkachuk - R Nugent-Hopkins - J Puljujarvi

20 Nov 2017 09:56:00
Flames get hosed.

20 Nov 2017 11:41:05
Usually, the team trading the best player loses the deal. Gaudreau is far and away the best player, and due to their rivalry, I'd say no from Flames.

20 Nov 2017 14:18:51
Lol. Troll.

20 Nov 2017 18:12:19
I don’t know if it’s a troll job, but if it’s not, it’s a bad offer for Johnny hockey.

20 Nov 2017 19:55:23
Ya because the Oilers and Flamers are never making a trade like that. Pointless.

22 Nov 2017 08:23:28
Taylor Hall would look good on the wing.

22 Nov 2017 10:51:42
The nerve to even slot Yamamoto on the first line 😂.

20 Nov 2017 08:57:25

• Oliver Ekman-Larsson

20 Nov 2017 11:43:05
First ones not too bad imo.

Second one tho, Oil win. Skinner>>RNH, Vatanen>>Russell, Lindholm.

20 Nov 2017 12:38:21
Thank you

20 Nov 2017 14:21:31
Lol. The Oilers aren't reading away Puljujarvi, Moto, Nurse, 1st and 2nd. Wtf goes through people's heads when writing these proposal ideas. Not realistic what so ever. Like no team in the league will trade ALL those pieces of their teams future in two trades.

20 Nov 2017 16:23:27
If and when the Ducks do trade Vatanen, they aren't going to give him to someone in the same division and let him hurt them.

20 Nov 2017 16:55:47
Ya because Vatanen is someone to be scared about coming back to hurt you 🙄🙄

He's not that type of elite player you avoid trading in your own division. If the trade is good, and happens to be in your division, you still do it. He's good. But not an elite game changer to be worried about.

20 Nov 2017 18:17:45
Regardless if vatanen is a game changer or not, why would ducks trade him and only get back RNH who also is no game changer. Trade a puck moving RHD on a steal of a contract for a guy to be your 3rd Best center making 6mill?! Not a chance.

19 Nov 2017 17:04:01

Edm:RNH( not retain),Jones

19 Nov 2017 19:32:01
Haven't ever seen this trade before.
Solid proposal. Oilers add, Maybe Draisitl. And take out Galagher.

19 Nov 2017 23:50:34
It's not that far off yup.

20 Nov 2017 05:53:27
So bad.

19 Nov 2017 14:06:23
Tor : Z Hyman + Connor Brown
Edm : J Puljujarvi + D Nurse + 1 st pick

19 Nov 2017 14:29:00
Leafs add.

19 Nov 2017 16:30:13
Add? Lol, adding isn't close to enough here. For a package of Puljujarvi, Nurse and a 1st you start with Marner/ Nylander and add from there.

Oilers counter:
Caggiula + Strome for Marner, Zaitsev and 1st. Deal?

19 Nov 2017 19:35:00
Hahahaha. Ok Mathew, now I know you're just a dumb troll. Good work. Surprised it's a Leafs fan tho and not a Habs fan.

19 Nov 2017 13:45:42
Islanders acquire:
• Kailer Yamamoto

19 Nov 2017 19:20:14
Certainly relieves the oil of their cap situation, smh.

20 Nov 2017 08:59:18
Nuge. Puljujarvi. Yamamoto. Nurse. Strome. For Tavares. Lindholm and Skinner? Ugh. What is wrong with this site. People know it's anonymous so they're just entertaining themselves with compete garbage delusion.
Today is bad! were these all posted when you were all blackout drunk.
