I think that the Avalanche have a very good chance of signing Drew Doughty; they have 25 million in cap space next year and only really have to re-sign Yakupov and Nemeth. They will have to give Rantanen, Compher and Kerfoot their big contracts the next offseason, the same one as Doughty's UFA year, so I think they might just want to clear all the space they need to make it work.

to Colorado

to Florida

Sceviour is much cheaper, but Florida has its whole core signed long-term and has room for a better, more expensive option in Soderberg. Colorado can replace Soderberg with a 1-year UFA signing like Thornton or Filppula.

21 Apr 2018 19:43:49
to Florida

to Buffalo

21 Apr 2018 20:51:10
Buffalo can get bettet than that. O'Reilly is a top 2 way center in the league. (I didn't say top center) .

21 Apr 2018 21:26:12
bjugstad is 25 and coming off a 50 point season.

18 Apr 2018 20:48:14
Wild trade! Just to see reactions!
Oilers: 1st round pick 2018 + Lucic
Panthers: Petrovic

Oilers: Russel + B prospect
Islanders: Ho Sang (Islanders could use more stability on the back end)

This leaves a huge cap space for Oilers. Over 17m after signing Nurse + Caggiula + Benning + Strome

Oilers Sign:
Grabner: 3m x 3 (I like his speed and kills penalties)
Maroon 3m x 3 (He would replace Lucic’s physicality but cheaper)
Derek Ryan 1.5 x 1 or 2 (4th lone centre, allowing JJ to play 3rd line with Strome.

Carlson 7 m x 7 or
Green 5m x 2 (preferably Carlson)

Hutton as back goalie 1.5 x 2
Trade Montoya for anything or send him down to AHL.

RNH - McDavid- Grabner
Maroon - Drai - Ho Sang
JJ - Strome - Puljujarvi
Caggiula - Ryan - Kassian

Nurse - Carlson
Klefbom - Larson
Sekera - Petrovic

18 Apr 2018 23:03:01
Probably what it’d cost to dump Lucic but I’m not sure if edm is that desperate yet.

19 Apr 2018 00:43:54
No from Edmonton, wow.
Could work but I think islanders may prefer younger dman (Benning) and hard to tell when you say B prospect, got to day somebody.
Grabner signing could be good he has speed.
Maroon, no, considering we will still have lucic.
Derek Ryan could be a great signing especially at that deal.
Carlson will seek more money imo, and green is he is 100% healthy that deal wouldn’t be bad.
Hutton would be good backup!

19 Apr 2018 02:24:28
I don't think there's a team out there that would take Lucic.

19 Apr 2018 04:41:26
No from Oilers and Islanders. Would rather keep the draft pick and Lucic. And Ho-Sang can get better.

19 Apr 2018 05:58:52
What do you think Carlson would get? I can’t see more than 7.5 m over 7 years?
The idea of getting maroon is because Lucic would be gone.
Can someone tell me what you think Ho Sang would get? What has this kid proven?

19 Apr 2018 14:52:57
No way Mr Cap Dump Ruseel gets you a young playwr with as much as potential as ho sang. Yes he has attitude problems but so did Tyler Seguin.

19 Apr 2018 15:13:53
Sorry to tell you Ebs but if top 6 player in they're late 20s and early 30 gets 5.5 -7 million for 5-7 year when an actual valuable RHD #1 D that just had a 60 point season comes along he's getting 9+ million. Especially after the seaso he just had. I woulndt be surprise if he gets 9.5×7. he's only 27 too.

07 Apr 2018 15:34:17
Canadiens gets :
- FLA 2018 1rst rounder
- Owen Tippett

Florida gets :
- Max Pacioretty
- MTL 2nd Rounder.

07 Apr 2018 18:39:14
Mtl does this Panthers I don't know. Depends how high they are on a former top 10 pick I believe. 2016 right?

07 Apr 2018 18:45:40
No from Florida, Tippett has tremendous upside and is exactly what they need, a young RW sniper. Also they might be very keen on keeping their first in this draft with very strong d prospects, something that they definately should get.

07 Apr 2018 22:18:38
I think Florida says no. however, depends on how much pressure GM feels to make the playoffs next season. Tippett has great upside, and Florida has a great young talent base, however maybe need a little more of a veteran presence. I still think Florida says no,
Would be a lot to give up for 1 year of Patches.

07 Apr 2018 23:30:21
At least I’m not getting ripped into pieces, thank you everyone for your opinions!

08 Apr 2018 00:17:12
I would think that replacing Tipett by Borgstrom might make it for both teams.

08 Apr 2018 01:47:04
Not a chance Florida considers.

08 Apr 2018 09:43:14
Thats seems better ya.

23 Mar 2018 19:24:21
FLA: Barkov
WPG: Laine

23 Mar 2018 19:45:54
Barkov is good. but , no from Jets. Laine is one of the true few players in the league that are untouchable.

23 Mar 2018 20:57:57
Same as last time someone put up a laine trade. I forget who it was for but it was also a young centre. Barkov is great but they have scheifele. If they lose laine, they’re looking for 40+ goals (maybe 50+) a year for the next decade while having two good centres fighting for ice time. Makes no sense for jets.

24 Mar 2018 07:15:47
I'd rather have Barkov, Jets would never trade Laine tho.

24 Mar 2018 08:30:21
Laine is an amazing goalscorer and will probably be one of the biggest profiles for the next 15 years. he's basicly a new ovie.

Barkov is a complete player, dominant in all 3 zones. A leader and center you can build a team around. Also on a great contract. he's the new kopitar.

You can win a cup without a laine type of player but i don't think you can win one without a barkov type.

Don't think either team would make the trade though.

24 Mar 2018 20:45:42
Barkov is a complete center but Laine is more consitent offensively and has 60 goal potential. Barkov, will be a 60-70 point center for year to come with a couple ppg season. Laine will always have 80+ seasons but his plus minus won't be as good as Barkov. Overall Laine is the best player but not by far.

26 Mar 2018 00:05:18
Ovie vs Kopitar=Laine vs Barkov.

22 Mar 2018 19:28:02
CAR: Hanifin
FLA: Malgin, Vatrano

22 Mar 2018 21:39:32

22 Mar 2018 22:07:43
Not a chance. Then again the new owner of the hurricanes wants to be coach, gm, president, owner and probably captain with no experience lol so maybe he would be dumb enough.

23 Mar 2018 02:01:04
Lol what.

21 Mar 2018 20:48:23
With prospects needing a chance at the NHL level (Morin, Frost, Vorobyev, Allison etc), the Flyers need to move some veterans this offseason:

NYI: Gudas $3.35MM UFA 2020 (despite his salty reputation, he actually drives play well)
PHI: 2018 2nd (NYI) - the lowest of their two seconds in this draft

The Islanders have 3 defencemen as UFAs this offseason with only Pulock and Boychuk as being natural righties.

CGY: Simmonds ($3.975MM UFA 2019), Weal ($1.75MM UFA 2019)
PHI: Fox, 2020 1st (lottery protected), 2018 FLA 4th, Conditional 2020 4th*becomes 2020 2nd if Simmonds re-signs

Calgary's right side is awful. Weal is fast and has talent, but was blocked by a Stanley Cup roster in LA and aging veterans and waivers in Philadelphia. The picks are in later years to help Calgary get some prospects into their system after this season.

Edmonton: Raffl $2.35MM UFA 2019, retained 50% for Edmonton's cap
PHI: 2019 3rd, 2020 4th

Raffl is a swiss army knife that can capably play up and down the lineup, is defensively responsible, and is a pretty good penalty killer. It won't fix Edmonton's issues, but would help their PK and defensive coverage. He's be a valuable 4th liner and great role player.

I know I'm only 1 of 2 Flyers fans on here but I thought I'd throw this out there.

05 Apr 2018 18:23:01
As a flames fan. I would jump on that trade.

25 Feb 2018 15:59:59
With the return Rick Nash got, I had a crazy three team trade idea:

Toronto Trades:
(LW) James van Riemsdyk (50% Retained)
(LW) Yegor Korshkov
2018 2nd Round Pick

Florida Trades:
(C) Jared McCann
(RW) Jayce Hawryluk
(LW) Jamie McGinn
2018 1st Round Pick

New York Trades:
(D) Ryan McDonagh
(C) David Desharnais
2018 3rd Round Pick


Toronto Acquires:
(D) Ryan McDonagh

Florida Acquires:
(LW) James van Riemsdyk (50% Retained)
(C) David Desharnais
2018 3rd Round Pick

New York Acquires:
(LW) Yegor Korshkov
(C) Jared McCann
(RW) Jayce Hawyrluk
(LW) Jamie McGinn
2018 1st Round Pick
2018 2nd Round Pick

Basically, its like JVR goes to Florida for all that (similar return to what Nash got tbh, McCann Lindgren and Boston 1st, but JVR > Nash imo.

Then Toronto flips all of that, plus the 2nd and Korshkov to New York for McDonagh. And I think that's a very good haul for McDonagh tbh. Three prospects and two picks in the first two rounds.

Believe me. I never in WILDEST dreams thought this would be possible. Seriously, I thought JVR would be worth like a 1st+ a little bit at the deadline. But holy smokes, does the Nash deal change everything. We can agree that JVR is a better player than Nash, and therefore his return should be a bit better. Its just that Toronto needs none of the prospects, so they all get thrown onto NY for something they need - a dman.

Still tho, I think that Toronto wins this deal. Maybe some more from them? Idk.

25 Feb 2018 16:27:06
As a leaf fan i would love this. but they make out like bandits. Florida is the team losing this deal.

25 Feb 2018 16:52:36
Lol yeah. i'm Just tryna jump on the Nash overpay train. Lol.

15 Feb 2018 17:54:01
LA fires the first shot in the California trade war..

Ducks Pacoretti

Habs Nick Ritchie, Sam Steele, 2018 2nd

Sharks Nash

NYR Hertl, 2018 1st, 2018 4th.

And to keep pace in the arms race....

Dallas Hoffman

Ottawa 2018 1st, Faksa, Vala

Florida 2018 3rd 2019 4th

Calgary Vrbada

15 Feb 2018 19:32:50
Seems like a lot for Nash.

15 Feb 2018 19:55:20
Lol nash ainy getting that return.

15 Feb 2018 20:29:03
Yes it is, but I think there will be a bidding war for his services pushing up the usual price tag for a UFA rental.

15 Feb 2018 20:37:22
No shot Steele is involved in the deal for ANA. He is their future down the middle.

15 Feb 2018 22:43:54
Wouldn’t hold my breath for that kinda return if I was a Habs fan. I personally think they’d be lucky to get steel straight up for Pacioretty IF ducks even had interest in him. Not s chance ducks give both steel and Richie AND a second. not a chance. GM would be unemployed if he made that trade.

15 Feb 2018 23:11:14
Seems like big overpayments for all the guys. I don't think Flames need Vrbata.

06 Feb 2018 10:19:48
Tampa goes all out for this year and possibly next year so here’s 2 trades to help them out

Trade 1

Tampa: Callahan (cap dump) . Foote

Van: Ben Hutton

Trade 2

Ott: Erik Karlsson

Tampa: 2018 first, 2019 first, 2018 2nd, Raddysh, howden, Koekkoek

Yes Tampa gives up a lot of their future but they are in win now mode and this roster can compete for the next 5 years (if healthy) . Dumping Callahan gives them an extra 5.8 mil freed up to resign both Karlsson and kucherov in 2 years and before anyone says those 2 guys will command 10 mil plus just remember the tax rate in Florida is a lot lower which is why stamkos signed for only 8.5 and Tampa is stamkos’s team so Yzerman will find a way to resign Karlsson and kucherov at around the 8 million dollar range.

06 Feb 2018 12:12:51
foote >> hutton
cap dump = freed salary to sign players
i don't think foote is worth the cap dump.

06 Feb 2018 19:02:09
Insulting to ottawa, need atleast one decent roster player with that lightning package to even get the sens to listen. i'm thinking hedman or sergachev to get the convo started, along with the prospects and picks. you keep koekkoek.

09 Feb 2018 11:12:05
Wow so you're saying Ottawa gets pick #30 - 2018, 60th 2018, 30th - 2019, + Raddysh, Howden and Koekkoek. Too funny

TB adds Callaghan and Ott only sends Karlsson not Stone.

I think Ottawa will keep both instead. Ottawa only needs to rest Karlsson until next year as he is still injured and it shows.

If they trade Karlsson he should go West somewhere.

Either you hate Ottawa or you love Tampa Bay.

01 Feb 2018 14:16:26
To Winnipeg

Keith Yandle

To Florida

Toby Enstrom
conditional 3rd round pick, becoming a 2nd round if Winnipeg wins two playoff rounds

01 Feb 2018 15:16:45
Jets pass don't need that contract already got a pricey defensive group and need cap space for young players elc running out.

01 Feb 2018 15:54:27
With Yandle's contract, not a chance the Jets consider this.

17 Jan 2018 17:45:02
Leafs and Florida shake things up.

Leafs- marner, dermott, kapinen and 2018 1st

Florida- Ekblad

Toronto gives up a potentially elite winger who in my opinion isn't being used properly in Toronto, another potential top 6 winger, a potential top 4 d man and a mid- late first. Florida is a dumpster fire who need scoring and as good as Ekblad is, he isn't panning out to be the franchise type d man he was supposed to be but clearly for the leafs he instantly improves their back end. Florida clearly isn't winning any time soon and they get back some real good assets for the future. Toronto gives up a lot but they get the d man they need and to they'll have to give to get.

17 Jan 2018 18:08:13
That still does not get you ekblad imo.

17 Jan 2018 18:40:02
Fair value or not Toronto doesn't make that trade.

17 Jan 2018 18:54:18
The only reason that doesn't get Ekblad is because Florida probably has no interest in trading him no matter the return. If they were willing to trade him that most definitely is more than enough. A top line winger, a 2nd/ 3rd line player, a dman looking every bit a top 4 dman and a 1st. That equals more than enough.

17 Jan 2018 20:53:09
No from leafs Eklblad hasn’t proved as much as Marner.

17 Jan 2018 21:10:01
Doesn't get you a future Norris winner.

17 Jan 2018 21:49:45
Lol. Ekblad > Marner.

18 Jan 2018 03:38:53
A future Norris winner? As good as he is the defenceman with the most points almost always wins the Norris, I highly doubt he’ll ever outscore Karlson or Hedman and guys like that. What if dermott was switched with Liljegren and the first became a 2nd? Florida still doesn’t consider?

18 Jan 2018 17:50:07
In reading this over and over and can't see ehere the potential top 4 is frim Toronto.

15 Jan 2018 16:45:00
T. Greiss + 3rd 2018 for P. Mrazek
Mrazek is a bit of a gamble but is a low cost option that could fix the Islanders goalie problem. Mrazek has fallen out of favour in Detroit and they could use the pick.

M. Vande Sompel + 2nd 2018 (CGY) for N. Hjarlmarsson
Hjarlmarsson gives NYI a nice shutdown presence and could help in the playoffs. Arizona gets nice peices to help the rebuild.

K. Bellows + 1st 2018 (NYI) + R. Pulock + J. Ho-Sang for A. Ekblad
Ekblad hasn't become the star he was supposed to but still has massive potential. He could use a change of scenery and this is a pretty good offer for Florida as they get multiple good peices that could make them a contender in a couple years in addition to their already existing core.

15 Jan 2018 17:30:05
Can’t see why Detroit gives up on a 25 year old goaltender whose contract is up this year for a 31 year old one.
25 is so young for a goalie still, so they should try and get a young one back since their are definitely not ready to compete for the cup.

As for the second trade I doubt Arizona takes that.

And islanders wow huge no imo, they give up way too many pieces of their future. Ekblad is obviously still a great player and has that potential but that’s a lot to give up.

15 Jan 2018 17:47:48
not enough for ekblad or hjarlmersson.

12 Jan 2018 05:32:01
Canucks: Gudbranson and Vanek

Panthers: 1st round pick

Canucks draft Brady Tkachuk with 5th pick cause they have awful lottery luck
Then draft Joe Veleno or Ty Smith with Panthers picks

12 Jan 2018 05:44:56
The need to draft d jet woo or evan bauchard or mattias samuelson but i don't think they want vanek his was there last year and didn't do much for the but he wasnt play the the top guy vanek a guy that need to play with other skilled player if they want him as a depth guy he not it.

12 Jan 2018 06:51:34
Gub also was on Florida lol and besides this is just dumb no reason why Florida does this!

12 Jan 2018 13:49:33
Terrible for Florida.

12 Jan 2018 14:35:08
Sorry High, I can't read the second half of your post here. I think you are saying that Vanek has no value unless he is on a line with skilled players.

12 Jan 2018 15:25:01
When vanek was play with sutter and doreset on the checking line he wasnt doing to good the he started play with twins and then was started getting points and now his with gagner and boeser and getting lots of point but this won't happen forida net in the play hunt and both are ufa at the end of the year this stupid.

11 Jan 2018 09:58:00
FLA: Pysyk (2.75 mil), 2018 2nd round pick, and 2018 5th round pick.

VAN: Chris Tanev (4.45 mil)

Panthers need more defensive help and while Pysyk is 25 he's still raw and makes a lot of mistakes from the Panthers games I've watched this year. Panthers need better possession numbers and Tanev has only had one year where he was negative in possession in relation to his team.

Canucks get a younger d-man on a nice contract w term to help w the rebuild along w a 2nd.

11 Jan 2018 16:16:13
Oh this is interesting.

11 Jan 2018 20:04:49
Harmonic got a first and 2 seconds so canucks want no less than that because Tanev is a better damn than Hamonic is.

29 Dec 2017 01:15:03
So panthers are in a rebuild / slash hopeful for play offs but doubt it but you never know anyways

- Keith yandle

- bruins 2019 1st rounder
- bruins 2018 3rd rounder
- maybe McQuaid

29 Dec 2017 05:39:33
Bruins still need to draft amd are not on contendèr mode.

17 Dec 2017 03:20:12
To Florida:


To Winnipeg:


17 Dec 2017 03:46:41
Huh? Doubt Barkovs name had ever been mentioned as a player on the move in Florida.

17 Dec 2017 03:52:51
Loool florida laughs

17 Dec 2017 05:09:27
Hello My friend. As politely as I can possibly say, this proposed trade is delusional. Florida laughs and says F off. This is so terrible.

17 Dec 2017 15:25:58
Had to add that 3rd in there from panthers to even it out? Lol.

08 Dec 2017 19:43:01
Florida: Aaron Ekblad

Vancouver: demko, Hutton, gudbranson 1 rd pick

08 Dec 2017 21:06:53
Lol stop wasting our time.

08 Dec 2017 21:51:50
I clicked unbelievable, i can't understand how this trade makes the panthers any better. maybe you could enlighten me.

08 Dec 2017 22:43:04
Loungo old they don't have have good goalie prospect in there system and demko the number 1 goalie prospect in the nhl ekland a good defense man but I don't think heys worth 7.5. a year no seems to think demko has any value lol it's doesn't make them better now but in 1 or 2 year and Florida has owner ship problem so they probably don't want to pay his contact.

08 Dec 2017 22:53:03
It's better the. All you trades keyhabs. Rnh and nurse for patch. lmao aleast I'm feeling in a need of a team and not making it worse lol.

09 Dec 2017 08:31:22
Not insinuating its a bad proposal, i just don't agree with your view on ekblad. i would have no problems paying that guy 7.5 to play on my team, but now that i see your explanation i understand your view. I don't agree, but that's the great thing about this site to me. good discussions and alternative views.

23 Nov 2017 03:54:42
Canucks: Gudbranson
Florida: 3rd round pick.

23 Nov 2017 07:15:53
Gudbranson can get back a lot more than a second. The advanced analytics tell that Guddy is a legit top 4 Shut Down D-man, we've seen what that goes for around the league.

22 Nov 2017 18:03:16

FLA: Steve Mason (4.1mil)

WPG: James Reimer (3.4 mil) + 2019 3rd

Both goalies have been trash this year, but Reiner has been bad ever since he got to Florida and has 3 years left on his contract after this season, Mason has just one hence the add of the pick. Maybe both just need a change in scenery. Remember they were both at least average goalies before coming to these teams.

22 Nov 2017 20:03:29
To be fair to mason the jets were terrible in the games he's played.
