McGinn for Demers (12% Retained)




Eek. Bad for Panthers.

17 Sep 2017 21:53:51
Panthers have made some questionable moves. But I think they're just wanting to rid of salary on this one. Maybe they want to set up for a bigger move maybe during season or deadline?

18 Sep 2017 06:25:53
I think they wanted to clear cap like Yup said above and also Ian McCoshen looks ready for full time so maybe Demers became expendable with McCoshen's arrival.

18 Sep 2017 11:06:00
Wow the Coyotes really have a solid defence now:

Ekman-Larsson - Hjalmarsson
Goligoski - Demers
Chychrun - Schenn
Conouttan - Clendening

They may not make the playoffs this year because their forwards are real young but come 2019 this is a playoff team.

19 Sep 2017 17:50:11
Demers and Goligoski played great together in Dallas, Arizonas D looks really nice.

13 Sep 2017 22:25:52
Ok guys don't get upset with me I'm trying things :

Trade 1:
EDM) Gets Gallagher, McNiven, 1st, 2d, 3d
MTL) Gets RNH, 4th

Trade 2:
FLA) Gets Galchenyuk, 2d (might need to add more... please let me know)
MTL) Gets Huberdeau, Matheson, 3d

Edm get a potential Elite Goalie cus Talbot isn't young and get a winger in Gally

Florida gets a really interesting player in Chucky

Habs lineup:

Pacioretty Danault Drouin
Huberdeau RNH Lehkonen
Hudon Plekanec Hemsky
Byron Martinsen Shaw

Alzner Webber
Matheson Petry
Sclemko/Jerabek/Morrow Benn

Price Lindgren/Montoya

Thoughts?

14 Sep 2017 00:51:05
I think the first trade sounds like a lot to give up for habs as far as draft picks and also have heard oilers would prefer a defence in return for RNH. the panthers would never do the second trade, that huberdeau is a decent player.

14 Sep 2017 01:00:53
Florida laughs at you.

14 Sep 2017 01:18:04
Overpayment for nuge and an underpaymemt for Matheson & Huberdeau

14 Sep 2017 03:09:25
Lol you high/ trolling? No way Chucky gets Hubs and Matheson.

14 Sep 2017 03:34:11
That first trade is horrendous for the Habs. Nuge has had 6 years in the league and capped off an 18 goal season with 0 goals in 13 playoff games playing against third liners. He's not what Montreal needs.

14 Sep 2017 03:34:29
First one is too much from the habs for sure. Second one isn't near enough from the habs.

14 Sep 2017 12:23:01
Ok switch the 1st to Florida trade?

12 Sep 2017 17:17:48
Florida Trades
Huberdeau
Demers
3rd Round Pick 2018

Toronto Trades
Gardiner
Komarov
Fehr
Rychel (AHL)

Thoughts ?

12 Sep 2017 18:02:43
Hell no from Florida p.

12 Sep 2017 18:40:20
Terrible for Florida.

12 Sep 2017 18:26:53
You're Pinball aren't ya? New account name?

12 Sep 2017 19:04:30
thats trades worse for florida then the hurrincans they just had.

14 Sep 2017 11:00:43
Florida trades one of its best 3 or 4 players and adds a pick and doesn't get back one of the leafs best 8 or 9 players? Really bad for them. Also leafs have way too many nhl wingers, and not enough good D. They downgrade in D while gaining a winger. Value wise: horrible for panthers. Needs wise: bad for both.

18 Aug 2017 18:10:01
3 Team trade:

Stl: Gets Hellebuyc
Fla: Gets Allen
Winny: Gets Matheson

18 Aug 2017 21:28:24
Hahaha. STL say no? Lmao. Who do they get?!

18 Aug 2017 21:30:20
This one might just prove you are in fact MontrealsFinests like 6th account
Drunk posting again, At least it's a Friday afternoon this time! I'll give ya that. Lol.

18 Aug 2017 23:07:31
And now Florida has Luongo, Reimer and Allen.
Perfectly thought out.

Just seen that STL gets Helly, my bad. That's a big no from STL.

17 Aug 2017 14:00:59
JVR, Carrick
for
Pysk

Panthers are a playoff team in the making with just a couple of pieces missing. They get a scoring winger to replace jagr and a young dman

Leafs get another RH stay at home dam to help Hainsey

Kapanen-Matthews-Nylander
Marleau-Bozak-Marner
Komarov-Kadri-Brown
Martin-Moore-Hyman
Leivo
Reilly-Pysk
Zaitsev-Gardiner
Hainsey-Rosen
Marincin

17 Aug 2017 15:11:41
Remove carrick.

17 Aug 2017 17:29:02
JVR alone is too much for pysk. Pysk st this point looks like a 5-6th defenceman 4 maybe at his best. Panthers should add a pick or a prospect, even still leafs could do better for jvr.

17 Aug 2017 23:39:33
They signed Hainsey to play top pair with Reilly.

18 Aug 2017 19:51:57
Don't rely on an aging Hainsey to keep up top line minutes all season.

12 Aug 2017 12:48:05
Devils:
Alexei Marchenko D

Leafs:
3rd 2019

Golden Knights:
Ben Smith RW
Frederik Gauthier C
3rd 2019

Leafs:
Colin Miller D
4th 2018

Panthers:
James van Riemsdyk LW

Leafs:
Aleksi Heponiemi C
Henrik Borgstrom C

12 Aug 2017 15:51:10
who the @#$% are the players coming back to toronto in the JVR deal.

12 Aug 2017 17:51:15
Borgstrom was a 1st round pick from the panthers in 2016. Currently in the NCAA. A big (lanky) talented center.

12 Aug 2017 21:53:43
No from Devils, no from Vegas and no from Toronto, even tho I personally really like Heponeimi and Borgstrom has come along nicely since being drafted.

13 Aug 2017 06:53:54
I'd literally take future considerations to get rid of Ben smith and his useless contract.

13 Aug 2017 17:23:54
I'm sure google could tell you all about them.

08 Aug 2017 15:54:12
Tor: Bjugstad, Demers (retain 500k), 4th if jvr re signs

Fla: JVR, Kapenen, Fehr, Marincin, tor worst 2nd

Why: FLA needs a top winger to round out there top 6, fla already tried to trade demers and they save some cap in the deal, also kapenen gets to play in the nhl regularly since tor has nylander, marner, brown, hyman, marleau, komarov on the wing

Pitts: Bozak, Carrick, 3rd if maatta plays 50 games

Tor: Maatta, 5th if bozak re signs or pens make it to conference finals

Pitts is looking for a third line center and shoots right which is a plus, ufa after this year so no big financial commitment, tor now has great options on d and Bjugstad re place bozak and marleau replaces JVR

Tor will probably have a cap problem when Matthews is a RFA but it will be a lot easier to trade a dmen then a forward, gardiner and hanisey ufa in two years as well cap wise they can probably only keep 4 out of these 5 dmen in two years ( Reilly, demers, gardiner, Zaitsev, Maatta)

09 Aug 2017 11:30:22
First trade is way too much from the leafs. Bjug had a down year, he can be had for cheaper, and Demers ain't anything too speciall. Giving up JVR and Kappy for that is a lot. No thanks.

10 Aug 2017 00:52:02
How do people disagree lmao😂😂

a month ago, people were saying Bjug is garbage and worth merely anything.

05 Aug 2017 23:11:10
Boston: spooner

Florida: petrovic

06 Aug 2017 16:37:41
Boston's already got d-men like Petrovic (McQuaid and Miller) no need to send an offensive weapon like Spooner.

28 Jul 2017 20:11:07
Two Rangers Trades:

First Trade:

R. Nash and 2019 6th to the Florida Panthers in exchange for C. Sceviour and 2018 2nd.

- Nash did produce 23 goals last year and a high 30s in points, however, his value is continually dropping after a 40 goal season two seasons ago.
- He makes 7.8 million in salary, so dumping him for Sceviour saves about 7 million in cap space.

- Rangers have Buchnevich and Vesey who can fill Nash's spot, plus Sceviour who can take over third line LW.
- Florida picks up the better player with a bigger contract - however, they do have the cap space to do it.
- Because Nash's skill outweighs his 1 year expensive contract (imo), the swap ofpicks goes in the favour of New York.
- Nash can bring experience to a depleted Florida forward group, and can slot in nicely as second line LW, behind Jonathan Huberdeau.

Second Trade:

A. DeAngelo and M. Puempel and 2018 5th to the Boston Bruins in exchange for R. Spooner and M. Subban and Tim Schaller.

- Rangers need a centreman after dealing Stepan. Spooner, although recently signed by Boston, was not favoured by many there. His 'rocky' d-zone play, plus Boston's abundance of centres/ players who can play centre may have cost him a spot on the team.

- Bruins could use a skilled dman like DeAngelo, and although he was recently acquired by NYR (in the Stepan deal nonetheless), it is not much of a loss, due to NYR already having Skjei, McDonagh, Shattenkirk, Smith, Holden and Staal, as well as Bergeglazov as a 7th dman.

- Although Holden for Spooner would be ideal for NYR, the value is completely in NYR's favour, and I could never see this happening. DeAngelo (imo) is worth more than Spooner, and that is why Boston would add Schaller and Subban, while NY only adds Puempel and a 5th.

28 Jul 2017 20:35:48
Don't know much about a cpl guys in the second deal to know. What I do know is that rumours of attitude problems have followed deangelo already and that's something I would stay away from if I'm Boston. Some guys getvtraded and rumours come out that are unfounded but this isn't just once. He was suspended from the OHL by his own team and then the league for racial slurs at a teammate in his draft year. Traded straight up for a 2nd round pick after being picked in the first round by Tampa. Then plays less than 40 NHL games and has a physical abuse of an official suspension and traded again. I could be wrong about this, but I can't help but feel like this kid is going to be one the guys that wastes his talent because he's too dumb to get out of his own way. No other reason why a RHD with his talent at his age is being given up on so soon by 3 teams.

27 Jul 2017 15:35:21
Leafs trade rychel lupal and 3rd
Fla Demers and a 5th

Fla wanted rychel earlier in the offseason so now they get him lupal is only in this trade for money reason goes on injury in Florida. Florida would get out of owing demers in the last 3 years of his deal.

Leafs get demers I still think this guy be a solid fit.

27 Jul 2017 16:55:11
Not sure if the leafs do this trade for cap reasons, I appreciate demers makes similar money but they can't hide his salary on ltir like they can with lupul. They are already close to the cap and I also don't think demers is a top 4.

28 Jul 2017 17:16:07
Demers is not what there looking for or need. - has han ok year his last for the stars, got over paid the next season. Leafs don't need him or the cap hit that comes with him.

28 Jul 2017 20:05:22
Mclarty they are not close to cap during the season only the Offseason when they can't use the LTIR.

29 Jul 2017 03:56:36
they are much closer to the cap if they make this trade, you lose one of your two cap hits you can hide. Leafs also still need to sign connor brown, which they have no done because they have less than 3 mil in space, plus all the bonuses from the rookies last year which is about 5 mil counts towards the cap this year. So pretty close to it.

22 Jul 2017 19:39:57
Toronto Maple Leafs and Florida Panthers

Maple Leafs trade JVR and Soshnikov to the Panthers in exchange for Mark Pysyk and prospect Max Gildon

Toronto Maple Leafs and New York Rangers

Maple Leafs trade Tyler Bozak and Leo Komarov to the Panthers in exchange for Mika Zibanejad and prospect Sean Day

22 Jul 2017 20:31:36
I don't think fla gives up enough in the first one. And well the second 1 is really bad for the rangers.

22 Jul 2017 20:46:36
First one seems alright. IDk who Gildon is tho.

Bozak and Leo doesn't get Ziby.

23 Jul 2017 03:34:20
The Rangers might want Bozak but they will not trade a centre for him. I think the leafs will be happy with a 2nd for him.

23 Jul 2017 14:33:27
Not interested in Psyk at all he's a bottom pairing dman.

23 Jul 2017 14:38:58
VanCity if Hanzel can get a 1st Bozak obviously can.

24 Jul 2017 22:19:26
bozak is worth a first, with all the trash being traded for 1st round picks at the deadline what's wrong with another, bozak is deadly at the dot and plays a very solid 2 way game, when he was with jvr and kessel he was the only one playing any d. not the greatest player but probably will go down as one of the best free agent college signings of his generation.

22 Jul 2017 15:24:47
TRADE 1:
Tyler Bozak + Alexey Marchenko to the Winnipeg Jets in exchange for Ben Chiarot + 2018 2nd Round Pick + 2018 5th Round Pick

- Jets could use a solid third line centre behind Schief/ Little. Lowry is more suited to a grinder-fourth line center role with PK time. Nic Petan could be the solution for 3C, however, I think it would be easier for him to ease into the league as a W.
- Jets D-core already has Buf/ Myers/ Trouba/ Morissey/ Kulikov/ Enstrom. Chiarot is a 7th dman who is probably not going to see a lot of ice. He is better than Marchenko, however, giving him up in a deal for a 3C won't hurt very much.

- Leafs need to dump forwards ASAP, and don't need anymore coming back.
- A 2nd + a good bottom pairing dman is a decent haul for a guy who hit 55 points last year and has a year left on his deal.

TRADE 2:
Mark Pysyk + Dennis Malgin to the Toronto Maple Leafs in exchange for James van Riemsdyk + Rinat Valiev + Ben Smith + 2018 4th Round Pick.

- Florida needs wingers now. They lost Marsh/ Smith/ Jagr/ Jokinen, and only gained Tippett, Dadonov (who may take time to adjust to NHL ice) and Vrbata. JVR is a big force that could play second line and play top unit PP. He had 29 goals last year and over 60 points. His value is high.

- Toronto acquires a right shot dman for their prized UFA. It may seem like only a little coming to Toronto, however, if JVR + 1st was offered for Hamonic, then JVR straight across for Pysyk seems about fair. Malgin takes over Bozaks old role, and could flourish there, or could flame out and become terrible.
- Toronto also unloads an extra contract, which could be crucial if trades are dome during the season.

Lineup:

Zach Hyman - Auston Matthews - William Nylander
Leo Komarov - Nazem Kadri - Connor Brown
Patrick Marleau - Dennis Malgin - Mitch Marner
Josh Leivo - Dominic Moore - Matt Martin
*Kasperi Kapanen

Morgan Rielly - Mark Pysyk
Jake Gardiner - Nikita Zaitsev
Connor Carrick/ Ben Chiarot - Ron Hainsey

Frederik Andersen
Curtis McElheinney

Key offseason additions - Patrick Marleau, Dennis Malgin, Dominic Moore, Mark Pysyk, Ben Chiarot, Ron Hainsey.

Key offseason subtractions - James van Riemsdyk, Tyler Bozak, Brian Boyle, Roman Polak, Matt Hunwick, Alexey Marchenko.


I think that the team would be better, just because the defense looks stable. Even if the offence weakens, it will still be very good. Marleau remedies JVR's loss, and Malgin/ Kappy/ Leivo will be remedy Bozak.

22 Jul 2017 21:32:00
Maybe if JFJ was still Toronto's GM. If that is all that JVR will fetch on the defenseman market (I'm 100% certain he will get more than Pysyk) then I'd much rather just keep him and wait for our defenseman prospects to be ready to play.

23 Jul 2017 14:29:00
Omg is Torontos LW ever weak without JVR. LW is definitely a bigger need then deffense.

23 Jul 2017 16:22:30
I can't believe it says Toronto needs to dump forwards in a hurry and then the centre to play with the new 6.25million dollar sniper marleau is Dennis Malgin! Lol if they need to 'dump' forwards because of the depth, why bring one back to take bozaks spot? They have Nylander who Babcock says is going to be a centre sitting on the wing and lots of cheap capable wingers like kapanen, leivo and rychel on the outside looking in. You don't force players like jvr and Bozak out because you have too many forwards and then give there spot to a new guy who is not even half as productive. Easy way to have a worse team. And pysyk a top pair D is also a joke.

14 Jul 2017 19:11:03
Pitts: Bozak, JVR

Fla: Kessel, Pouliot, Marchenko, Fehr, 2nd(pitts), 2nd(tor)

Tor: Bjugstad, Demers

Why:

Pitts gets a third line centre and also right handed, JVR replaces kessel, both UFAs next year so pens not locked in long term, saw a report saying pens think they'll have 2.2 m in cap space after signing dumoulin and sheary, there cap only goes up 1.65 m so that's under 2.2m

Fla: Gets top line winger to play with Huberdeau and barkov, also they already tried to trade demers to give Pysyk and Petrovic, also get draft picks for taking on cap dumps which they have the room for so if in playoff race have picks to move at deadline if not they have more picks in the draft

Tor: needs a dmen and get a younger centre and they don't give up nylander or marner, both guys locked in for 4 years at decent cap hits, JVR would want more than what there making, and toronto frees up cap space

14 Jul 2017 20:32:09
Florida makes out like bandits on this one.

14 Jul 2017 20:32:53
I like the thought of Kessel in Florida alongside Bjugstad and Huberdeau, but there's too many moving pieces in this trade. Plus 3 team trades don't happen often.

08 Jul 2017 05:49:23
habs: lindgren 1round scheback and vedjemo
panthers: bjustad and matheson.

08 Jul 2017 14:15:56
Easy no from Florida.

08 Jul 2017 18:05:48
That's bad for Florida.

08 Jul 2017 19:29:25
That doesn't get Matheson:

08 Jul 2017 19:35:15
Man that's a lot to give up Bjustad is close to being a cap dump at this point. And although Matheson looks like he could be a solid bottom 4 dman I don't think I'd do this even if I owed Florida a favour.

09 Jul 2017 04:25:32
Hab. if you wouldn't do that from habs stand point it's a good thing bergevin is their GM and not you. never thought I'd say that.

09 Jul 2017 06:22:14
Yeah I know right cause bjustad has just looked awesome lately hasn't he? He is bordering between future 2nd liner or total bust.

09 Jul 2017 15:19:09
It's a goalie that, at best, is prices back up for 8 years. A good AHL scorer. A 3rd rounder still in Sweden and a late first. For a real good 23 year old D and a 6'6 centrman coming off a bad year. The whole team had a bad year because the owners fired everyone with a hockey brain (tallon and gallant) and had an accountant telling people what to do. Tough conditions to play good hockey in. The only reason the habs would have a chance getting the 2 this cheap would be because of the bad season, can't be your only arguemenet against them.

09 Jul 2017 15:48:43
It's not the only argument bjustad has never really had a good season yet and since his best year he has declined for the last 2 seasons. I don't think at this time it would be a good idea for any team to take on his contract if they have to give up some decent picks and prospects. Too much actual potential being give up by montreal in this trade to justify the risk or cap hit.

10 Jul 2017 02:06:02
But you're not even mentioning Matheson. He's not a dump either. Habs 2 weak spots is D and C. This makes them better at both while losing no one who has made an impact for the team. Trading sergachev shows they aren't being patient. They wanna win now and they have to. This makes them deeper at the NHL level in their two weakest positions.

10 Jul 2017 05:29:01
Yeah Matheson doesn't make the deal worthwhile IMO. He's ok but nothing I wouldn't be able to live without.

10 Jul 2017 14:01:41
He doesn't have to be someone you can't live without to improve the team. Habs didn't have a deep D last year and have lost sergachev, emelin, beaulieau, nesterov and maybe Markov while bringing in Alzner and joe morrow. Don't need to be a superstar to make that situation better.

10 Jul 2017 14:21:56
Sorry, also got schlemko.

04 Jul 2017 03:15:03
Apparently Pitsburgh has shown strong interest in Matt Duchene

Pittsburgh:Patrick Hornquist,Olli Matta and 1st 2018

Colorado: Matt Duchene

Pittsburgh- gets an Elite player. Imagine the numbers he'd put up beside Malkin or Crosby.

Colorado- Hornquist is still a very effective player could retrade him for a few picks. Matta is the young top 4 dman there looking for in any trade and they get a 1st Rd pick

Pittsburgh: Carl Haglin and 2nd 2018

Florida: Jason Demers 50% retained (2.25 mil)

Florida: Desperately needs wingers and they get a pick as compensation for retaining.

Pitburgh: gets cap and a decent puck mover.

04 Jul 2017 05:31:20
What? Carl hagelin is a cap dump! They won't take a cap dump and then retain demers contract as well.

04 Jul 2017 06:27:20
Haglin is a cap dump but Demers isn't?

04 Jul 2017 12:00:13
Duchene isn't "Elite". Good yes but not elite!

04 Jul 2017 15:37:43
I'd call anyone who makes the team Canada Olympic team elite.

04 Jul 2017 16:14:37
Yeah agree with nylander if you can crack that squad I think you're an elite player lol.

04 Jul 2017 21:30:14
Lol. Mcjesus. You know there's an "agree" button right?
You don't have to write that you agree with someone.

04 Jul 2017 22:24:50
It's a talk bored it creates conversation what's wrong with that?

03 Jul 2017 06:14:54
JVR, T.Bozak, C.Brown, K.Kapenen & 2018 1st round pick for T.Barrie & M.Duchene

Florida signs Hartnell $2.25 1yr

03 Jul 2017 08:07:38
Hartnell is already signed.

03 Jul 2017 14:37:03
And avs wanted 2 young D and a pick for duchene. So you're giving them 3 forwards PLUS taking their best Dman back? Not a chance they bite on that.

02 Jul 2017 23:58:18
Toronto: Connor Brown

Anaheim: Brandon Montour and 2nd Rd pick 2018

Toronto: The leafs need to move a forward and they need Rhd to play with Rielly.

Anaheim: Anahiem was apparently very interested in Connor brown and wanted him in any deal for a dman

Or

Toronto: Connor Brown

Florida: Petrovic and 2nd 2018

Florida: Desperately needs wingers.

03 Jul 2017 01:45:42
Lol that would be a steal for Toronto in either case.

03 Jul 2017 02:17:12
How would that be a steal Brown is a 20 goal scoring rookie.

03 Jul 2017 02:20:24
Was that supposed to read Brown Soshnikov and a 1st for Montour and a 2nd, or do you really think teams are giving away quality players for junk from the Leafs.

03 Jul 2017 04:49:08
@ Nylander I'm a habs fan but I live in Toronto rn and they are my second favourite team I kinda overrate some of their players sometimes but montour>brown. RHD>LHD>wingers.

On top of that montour can already play a top 4 defenceman role and is younger and also defenceman reach their potentials later than wingers.

A fair deal imo would be.

To Toronto: Montour

To Anaheim: brown, 2nd


@Renidrag Connor brown is far away from being junk the only reason why Anaheim didn't trade one of their defenceman to Toronto was because they want Connor brown+ in return but Toronto didn't wanna trade him.

03 Jul 2017 08:09:07
Lol Montour fetched 20 Browns alone.
Doubt Brown gets you a 2nd, let alone adding a top D prospect like Montour.

03 Jul 2017 11:42:54
Lol Ducks aren't adding in a Montour for Brown swap VB, you homer.

03 Jul 2017 14:50:25
Ducks did want brown in any package for one of their young D. In saying that, that does not mean that they are putting together a 'package' including a great D prospect for brown. It would be brown plus some sort of add to get ducks to think on montour for sure. The deal is lopsided for the leafs and you can call him a homer, but saying Connor brown is junk is stupid. The guys a 22 year old rookie with 20 goals bouncing between a 2nd and 3rd line. He was the OHL scoring champion 3 years ago and had 90 points in 110 AHL games. This isn't a kid that got lucky. He's a talented player that has scored at every level and has even more effort than talent. Stamkos had 23 goals in 79 games as a rookie, sequin had 11 in 74 games. Connor brown is not those guys, I'm not saying that, but 20 goal rookies are not garbage.

03 Jul 2017 16:53:38
Drais do you seriously believe Brown can't catch a 2nd?

04 Jul 2017 07:51:05
Well, considering Reaves gets you a 1st apparently, he might very well do, haha.

04 Jul 2017 13:00:02
It was reaves and a second for a first and sundqvist. Stop saying Reaves got a first. Considering any year other than this year that first would have been a second anyways this is nothing special.

02 Jul 2017 21:27:33
Connor Sheary + Carl Hagelin to the Florida Panthers in exchange for Nick Bjugstad + Jason Demers (50% Retained) .

Why for Florida?
- Florida has a lot of empty spots at wing. Sheary had 53 points in 61 games. His numbers were definitely inflated by Crosby, however, 53 in 61 is hard to overlook. Although he was pretty terrible during the playoffs, his regular season performance should give him pretty good value. He would slot in next to Barkov/ Huberdeau.
- Hagelin is a cap dump, but he also fills a role. The Panthers don't have that many wingers, and he can step in on a third line role, basically replacing Juusi Jokinen.

Why for Pittsburgh?
- Bjugstad did have an abysmal year, however, he has had good seasons in the past. he's still relatively young, and Pittsburgh has a hole on their third line centre. Bjugstad, who is a big body, can fill in that role.
- Demers at 2 million/ 3 years is a good deal. He can help out the defense, especially with an oft-injured Kris Letang. This may also allow the Pens to move a guy like Olli Maatta for help, as Demers can just take his spot.

Thoughts?

Don't think Florida would do this tbh.

02 Jul 2017 23:09:46
I think Florida would want more.


What bout Jagr signing to finish his career with Pens.? Take Kunitz spot.

Brutal for Pittsburgh Bjugstad is a huge cap Dump 5mil for someone who puts up 4th line production-14 points in 56 games last season Demers is a cap dump Florida is looking to dump his contract and there is currently no takers.

@ Nylander Landeskog had a 3rd pairing point production for a year does that mean he will go for the same price as any other 3rd paring guy like Paul Byron etc. or Brendan Gallagher had a bad season does that mean he will go for to another team while retaining 50% of someone's cap and acquiring a real cap dump that has barely been producing and a guy with inflated numbers because he played with Crosby he'll no. Honestly idk how the hell you come up with these comments.

Colorado was one of the If not the worst teams in NHL history you certainly can not compare those two situations because Landy was in a mess and Bjustad was in an much better situation.

03 Jul 2017 06:16:11
Well landeskog played on the top line with mackinnon while bjustad played third line.

FLA: Vincent Trocheck

PITTS: Olli Maatta.

02 Jul 2017 23:10:39
Honestly don't see anything special about Maataa.
I wouldn't if I were Florida.

03 Jul 2017 11:43:46
Trochek >> Maata
Maata isn't that good and wasn't impressive in the playoffs.

FLA-TOR:

FLA: Jason Demers [3.75 mil (750K ret) ], + 2018 2nd round pick

TOR: Connor Brown (RFA), Marty Marincin (1.25 mil), + 2018 3rd round pick

Originally I was planning on Toronto sending the higher pick, but after listening to Leafs Lunch Craig Button and Frank Seravelli said Florida is willing to retain money and add a pick or prospect to part w Demers. The Panthers are additionally v weak on the RW w trades of Marchessault and Smith. Brown is a good player, but can be replaced by Kappanen in my opinion.
Leafs get a solid top 4 d-man and at 3.75 mil for 4 seasons that's pretty fantastic.

30 Jun 2017 15:53:19
Don't think Toronto would go for this.

30 Jun 2017 16:48:39
Isn't Demers a cap dump? Doubt teams are lining up to acquire Demers.

30 Jun 2017 19:21:49
Ducks wanted Connor brown in any trade from the leafs for one of their D and that was one of the reasons nothing got done. Dave nonis drafted him in Toronto and is an assistant to Murray in Anaheim now. He's 22 and had a 20 goal rookie season playing great a 2way game and is one of Babcock favourites. If he is going to be included in a package for a D, it's going to be part of a bigger trade for a legit top pair. Not a cap dump.

Leafs hang up the phone before the Panthers finish talking. Brown > Demers.
