Idea from Ray Ferraro on TSN.

EDM: Nuge
MTL: Patches

idk. straight up? i would think that EDM adds a third or smth. Let me know what you guys think.

Nuge is 24 > patches 29
Nuge has 15g 14a -1 > patches 8g 13a
Nuge 6mil patches 2yr
Nuge center > patches lw

All in all I think Nuge holds more value than patches does not by much but he has term decent salary and is a center will be 28 at end of contract.

last 5 years Max is top 4 in scoring in the NHL. Mtl needs to ask for more.

He’s playing so bad! His value is down. You can’t base it off just previous success.

Not on a declining plAyer if the got back a legit 2way center that gets 60 pts he would auto be their #1.

Stop looking at last four years. Max isn't getting any younger so why does that even matter anyways lol. Look at right now and the future. Is he going to maintain his form?

Yah I totally agree with crazy attack ohh and let me guess Crosby ( 30 ) is less valuable then Josh Bailey. Josh has more points this year so he’s clearly way more valuable. Crosby’s last 12 years of success mean nothing right? @Crazyattack7.

Nylander, idk why you keep bringing up Josh Bailey. he's been a 50 point guy for the last couple of years, and he's finally cemented himself as a good player in this league.

Don't compare crosby to pacioretty. Crosby is a generational talent that will be on Hall of Fame one day. Patches will never be. Pacioretty was never an elite player. Don't get me wrong he was good, but not an elite player that's a game changer like crosby. You have to take in consideration what kind of player he is.

I don't want Patches for Nuge. But I do want a better top six winger than Maroon for next season, and Patches could be a fit. We need the top six wingers to be 20+ ol goal guys. Right now it's looking like our top 3 centres are the goal scorers.
We need 3 of the 4 top 6 wingers to be 20+ goal scorers even one to be a 40 maybe with McDavid.
But if we do get a patches or Hoffman or E Kane type of guy for top line LW in hope 3 of him, Puljujarvi, Lucic and (Moto maybe? ) . 3 of the 4 top 6 wingers need to be over 20 goals is my hope for next year. Especially if Nuge is traded and its McDavid and Driasitl as the centres.

Wait until off season to see what's up. A deal like this even made more sense end of November time. Not now.
I don't want Patches for Nuge anyways.

Is it weird that I actually agree with all those who say this deal is horrible for edm lol.

Patches is top 5 in the nhl in shots taken this season but he dosent get the scoring chances because he’s on such a bad team. He’s in his prime and needs a trade. He can still be a 40 goal scorer.

Either Montreal adds or no way from Edm. This years performance is what counts. Habs fans are funny again.

Patches is nowhere near top 5 in nhl. You want to use teams they play for as an argument why they are worth more or less I could argue that Crosby is worth less than eichel as he is over achieving based on his all star like teams every year. does it make that statement true? Not even close just like your patches comment.

He said top 5 in the league in shots on goal ramtard, at the moment it goes ovechkin (181), tarasenko (179), seguin (174), e. kane (168), burns (164) and pacioretty (159). you can compare crosby to eichel all you want, you'll still never have a clue.
