Carolina Trades
6th Round Pick 2019 (Flames Pick)

Toronto Trades
4th Round Pick 2019 (Blues Pick)
7th Round Pick 2019

If Dubas does decide to Trade Kapanen this is the type of Trade Proposal you would see, from Carolina's side it makes sense as well with there depth on Right Defense, and with Bracco probably ready next Season he would step right in beside Marleau and Kadri at RWing on the 3rd line, I do see a Trade match here at the Draft.

Thoughts ?

Hahahaha dream on toronto fans.

Agree10 Disagree6

18 Mar 2019 20:41:21
Lol Kapanen gets u 40% of Hamilton. Add Lillijegreen and Brown+ and that's closer.

Agree8 Disagree8

18 Mar 2019 20:55:45
Boom boom, just like many you overated Hamilton. I would rather Pesce. Better all round game.

Agree7 Disagree5

18 Mar 2019 21:51:21
So would Drouin, Juulsen and Shaw be close to fair value for Hamilton Boom Boom?

Agree7 Disagree4

19 Mar 2019 01:16:05
I agree Pesce>Hamilton wouldn’t want to give up Kappy but I would for Pesce.

Agree2 Disagree8

20 Mar 2019 15:11:45
Well your trade that was attempted to make fun of me is more fair for mtl then your trade is for Carolina. Drouin is not that good he's a clutch player and Juulsen is good yes proably be a good top 4. Shaw is not worth that much and he's overpaid but he brings lots of energy and is playing really good this year so I like him. But Hamilton is 25 and he's a solid all around defensemen it would take a package like the from mtl to get him cut mtl already has good RHD so mtl passes lol.

Agree1 Disagree2

20 Mar 2019 15:13:07
Ya that's actually more then enough for Hamilton maybe even a small add on from Car bu that's a good trade compared to your first one.

Agree1 Disagree1

20 Mar 2019 15:13:57
Jonthan Drouin and Juulsen both have more value then Kapanen so your mtl trade has almost 3 times more value then your Toronto trade. Shaw and Kapanen are not that far value wise.

Agree1 Disagree3

20 Mar 2019 15:16:06
Problem people is Pesce is on a Cap friendly Salary signed long term and yes I would prefer Pesce over DHamilton but don't see Carolina doing that, DHamilton does give you more offence then Pesce so with how the Leafs are being built it still works.

Agree1 Disagree1

20 Mar 2019 15:17:17
It took don cherry Kappy is only worth 1 of the mtl players u mention so essentially the package cmg from mtl is not comparable from Torontos. Not a good comparasion.

Agree1 Disagree3

20 Mar 2019 15:47:05
‘Shaw and kapanen are not far value wise’

Lmao. If you think that, you’re crazy.

Agree3 Disagree1

20 Mar 2019 19:17:37
I’d take Kappanen over Juulson without hesitation and at Drouins salary him also.

Agree1 Disagree1

20 Mar 2019 19:50:58
Juulsen definitely does not have a lot of value right now, espeically with his eye injured.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Mar 2019 08:07:53
Devils Trade

Leafs Trade
Liljegren (AHL)
4th Round Pick 2019 (Blues Pick)

Thoughts ?

Believable3 Unbelievable15

18 Mar 2019 10:24:55
No from Devils, Lilijegreen went down in value since being drafted and packaged with a bottom 6 player dosnt get u a solid top 4D. Lilijegreen might become what he was supposed to but why would Devils risk Severson to find out?

Agree4 Disagree5

18 Mar 2019 17:43:25
lol i would say if anyone’s value has gone down since being drafted it’s severson.

Agree8 Disagree5

18 Mar 2019 17:52:13
Severson was a 2nd rounder and is on pace for a 40 point season. I don’t think jersey can afford to lose him on the back end.

Agree6 Disagree1

18 Mar 2019 20:16:24
Severson was a 2rd pick and is a solid defensive top 4 D that can still get 30+ point. Pretty sure his value has gone way up since being drafted @unsportsmanlike.

Agree4 Disagree4

18 Mar 2019 21:43:55
I'm not suggesting NJ would do this trade by any means (their defensive depth is paper thin and it would be ill-advised) .

I just remember a lot of people pumping his tires a few years back (even on this site) and I don't think he's come close to living up to those expectations.

Being a top-4 defender on New Jersey is like being the smartest member of the flat earth society. They have Connor Carrick playing in their top 4. You think that might have something to do with why they have allowed more goals against than all but two teams in the NHL?

Cody Ceci is a top-4 D man for Ottawa. Hey Boom Boom -- you want to trade Shaw, Juulsen and a 4th round pick for Ceci? Ottawa will even scrap the 4th rounder since he's only on pace for 30 points.

Agree7 Disagree3

19 Mar 2019 12:19:19
Just because they have a shallow D doesn’t mean their whole D sucks. Severson isn’t top 4 because he’s in Jersey, he’s a top 4 D because he’s talented enough to be a top 4 D on most teams. I agree Liljegren hasn’t lost value like people think but let’s not pretend Severson is Ceci they’re very different in their own zone m.

Agree3 Disagree3

19 Mar 2019 15:27:33
fair point jbs; Ceci was an extreme example and I agree Severson is a lot better than him.

Agree1 Disagree1

20 Mar 2019 15:12:36
Severson is top 4 on Leafs, mtl, , Edm, Washinton, Minesota, Dallas ect
Hes solid.

Agree1 Disagree1

17 Mar 2019 18:56:50
After watching every injury that Wilson causes and what he has done to the those eastern teams, a guy like Lucic is a good answer to that.

Oilers: Lucic + Puljujärvi
Sens: Pageau

Oilers rid themselves of a bad contract in order to get a top 6 winger. Plus, they get a solid 3C. If oilers need to throw in a 3rd round pick, they should do it.

Sens get Puljujärvi, a strong prospect who just needs a new scenery.

Sens in return take on 50% of Lucic’s cap hit (they need to hit the cap), and then they trade him to an eastern team for a 3rd round or B prospect.

Believable4 Unbelievable8

17 Mar 2019 19:45:55
Oilers add their 1st Lucic is the worst contract in sports history. I challenge someone to name a worse contract. There needs to be a huge incentive to take on Lucic.

Agree5 Disagree9

17 Mar 2019 22:38:12
Nah James neals contract is worse now. have about loui Eriksson contract.

Agree4 Disagree5

17 Mar 2019 23:43:54
Rick Dipietro @vbbbvvbb

Agree7 Disagree3

17 Mar 2019 23:45:39
Challenge accepted. How quickly a leaf fan can forget the David clarkson contract lol. Not to mention Jeff finger and mike komaizerek deals. Also Scott Gomez Ville leino vinny leacaviler Danny heatley bobby holos and rick dipietro all signed deals that were just as bad or worse.

Agree7 Disagree2

Alexander Daigle.

Agree4 Disagree4

18 Mar 2019 09:56:20
No I’d much rather have David Clarkson atleast he could skate. James Neal is way better and Louis Eriksson is actually still serviceable just 3 million overpaid. Di Pietro was only getting paid like 3 mil.

Agree3 Disagree8

18 Mar 2019 14:30:27
Diepitro was getting 4.5 in a time when it was the equivalent to probably around 7.5 now and it was for 15 years lol. Also lucic at least is still playing unlike clarkson.

Agree6 Disagree3

18 Mar 2019 14:57:50
Vb once you “challenge” something and you are immediately shown up and proven wrong, you can’t go and defend the players that got named.

Agree5 Disagree1

18 Mar 2019 15:38:11
Di Pietro was only getting paid 3 million because they where retaining his contract lol.

Agree2 Disagree2

18 Mar 2019 17:56:08
Kesler is getting paid I think 6.75M for 22 points combined in the last two seasons.

Agree5 Disagree1

19 Mar 2019 12:32:27
Vinnys wasn’t that bad they just had to move on. It was a bit more expensive but he was scoring 20+ goals and 50-60 points a season. Had 10 and 32 in 39 games the year it was bought out. Also having a guy like Lucic to counter Wilson works in theory but not in practice. Wilson refuses to fight to answer for his hits more often then not and if intimidation prevented anything those guys would never have to stand up. The fact they still do means they aren’t preventing anything. Big bad bruins didn’t have enough to prevent Kadri in the playoffs last year, Abdelkader does whatever he wants then hides behind a ref. Lucic ties up cap and a roster space to not be able to play the game and also wouldn’t effectively limit those shots against, he was on the ice in his prime when Matt Cooke ended Marc Savards career with a dirty hit.

Agree1 Disagree1

19 Mar 2019 12:33:30
Also I love how for worse contracts we haven’t even had to leave hockey yet, VB said sports history and Pujols and Bonilla haven’t even been brought up yet.

Agree1 Disagree1

19 Mar 2019 15:40:44
Yeah baseball would be a whole new level their is probably 30 current contracts that are worse then lucic. I just stuck to hockey cause there are quite a few here that's as bad or worse then lucic.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Mar 2019 20:14:49
everyday i come on this site i just see vb getting dumber and dumber lol, looks like your challenge completely backfired and yet again leaves you looking like a delusional homer as always.

Agree2 Disagree0

20 Mar 2019 04:19:32
I’m not sure about that, VB just really doesn’t like Lucic.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Mar 2019 11:38:27
”Neal is way better” still lucic got more points in a bottom team while neal plays for a top team.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Mar 2019 11:55:53
I think we need to see another season of Neal doing this before we can really say. Lucic has been bad for a couple years, this is Neal’s first bad season and could be an aberration.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Mar 2019 14:08:09
Edmonton must make trade. Only good players to trade is defense. So:

Edmonton trades Oscar Klefbom to St. Louis for Jayden Schwartz.

St. Louis must needs left defense. Only Dunn is good for left side defense. Edmonton needs winger for to play with McDavid. The money is very close as well. So this trade is good for both team.

Believable3 Unbelievable14

17 Mar 2019 15:08:13
. i thought edmonton was bad defensively but good offensively? why would they do this?

Agree4 Disagree7

17 Mar 2019 17:24:41
No they are not good offensively they are Mcdavid and Draisaitl that’s about it on there forwards. The problem with Edmonton is they have too much money tied up in older slower players that aren’t worth the money. They need to try to sell and do a full rebuild and no more half ass rubbish they’ve been doing for the past decade.

Agree2 Disagree1

17 Mar 2019 18:55:41
Edmonton is not very good offense or defense. But defense they have more tradeable players. Cannot affors to lose good players offense because is nobody good after top 3-4 guys. Chiarelli brings in lots of defense before fired. We can trade defense.

Agree1 Disagree3

17 Mar 2019 21:11:07
Lol. They aren’t trading Klefbom for a winger. That would Jen create too big a hole in D. Klefbom is their beast back there (when healthy) .

Agree5 Disagree1

18 Mar 2019 04:03:01
Absolutely idiotic for oilers to make that.

Agree4 Disagree1

18 Mar 2019 08:11:26
Rather keep Schwartz

Blues have jaybo, Edmondson, Dunn on left side.

Agree1 Disagree4

18 Mar 2019 15:37:47
But why is trade idiotic McJesus. Klefbom is very good player, yes. I watch him many times. But so is Swartz. We have so many other very good players on defense too. Nurse is very good. And Russell and Larsson too. We have many others that are very good too. If Schwartz is not worth Klefbom, then why not you tell us what he is worth?

Agree1 Disagree4

18 Mar 2019 20:01:08
Blues will never trade schwartz. Brings to much to our team. He may be having a down year, but his play is still a driving force for the team.

Agree2 Disagree2

20 Mar 2019 15:15:21
Zamboni Klefbom is Oilers only legit first pairing D. Nurse is a solid second pairing as is Larsson. Russel is not very good and all the D Chiarelli brought in at the end are 3rd pairing/ scratches. This trade does not help Edmonton.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Mar 2019 04:43:45
If Leafs get eliminated in the first round!

Traded for Defenceman help and needs to get tougher.

To Leafs: Manson, Rakell,
To Ducks: Nylander, Johnsson, Rosen

To Leafs Pesce
To Huricanes: Brown, Ozhiganov

Trade Zaitzev for picks

Gone and will not resigned

Maple Leafs

Hyman, Tavares, Marner
Marleau, Matthews, Kapanen
Rakell, Kadri, Bracco
Ennis, Gauthier, Moore
Extra: Petan, Marchment

Rielly, Manson
Muzzin, Pesce
Dermott, Liljegren
Extra: Sandin, Borgman


Believable2 Unbelievable12

17 Mar 2019 06:14:36
Oh my! that Carolina trade is horribly lopsided.

Agree10 Disagree1

17 Mar 2019 13:39:43
If Nylander is worth Rackell, then Johnsson and Rosen for Manson? I don’t know if that is right. Manson is very good player. Top line right defense is very expensive no? Maybe is ok. But maybe not. Maybe why not you tell us how to value this trade?

Agree3 Disagree4

17 Mar 2019 14:32:16
Why would Nylander be worth as much as Rakel. Age and potential are in Nylanders favour? I don’t think it’s a bad trade maybe leafs add a 2nd.

Agree3 Disagree7

17 Mar 2019 15:09:38
Neither the Ducks or Hurricanes would get better making those lopsided, pro Leafs trades.

Agree5 Disagree3

18 Mar 2019 08:09:08
Leafs haven't even played in the playoffs yet and you have them eliminated?
For starters Nylander, Marner and Matthews will not be traded, the 2nd waive of Johnsson, Kapanen and Dermott will also not be traded, and the other core 3 of Tavares, Rielly and Andersen will also not be traded by Dubas.
And also the guys Babcock likes which are Hyman, Marleau, TMoore and Muzzin will also not be traded by Dubas, what's left yes could be, which is
Kadri, Gauthier, CBrown, Zaitsev as your big 4, possibly a few prospects and later picks but in general the Leafs will stick to the Shanaplan and stay the course to build a contender year after year and add a piece here and there like they did Marleau, Boyle a few years ago and Muzzin this year.
Watching what they have done tells everyone this is how they will operate.

Agree1 Disagree2

18 Mar 2019 13:21:47
1) leafs are going to be in cap trouble soon so there window to win starts now.
2) Nylander plays to soft and is getting called out for not being serious enough, I don’t think leafs are happy with his performance with the new contract and is the most likely to be traded for a D
3) after this season the leafs D gets weaker as it seems like Gardiner is going to be a free agent so they need to add something to replace him
4) out of the 4 player that you feel can be traded the only one that has a good trade value is Kadri the other 3 combined you’ll be lucky to get the value of a 2nd.

Agree1 Disagree1

17 Mar 2019 01:37:15
Ilya Kovlachuk need a change of scenery it's a shame because if you watch him you can still tell he's a great player but LA just isn't a fit. Meanwhile Montreal has a terrible PP and Kovy would be the go to offensive guy there ( although on the surface people may think he's washed up I can promise you it's 100% misuse from the coach ).

Montreal: Karl Alzner And 1st 2019

LA: Ilya Kovlachuk

LA gets a 1st round pick for taking Alzner. Montreal gets a top 6 player who is still elite on the PP.

Believable1 Unbelievable10

17 Mar 2019 06:13:01
No thanks man I'd sooner alzner just rot in Laval then to give up a 1st.

Agree4 Disagree1

17 Mar 2019 13:41:34
Kovalchuk is so old and Montreal looking for young players to rebuild. Why they want Kovalchuk? I don’t think is good trade. Kovalchuk too old.

Agree5 Disagree3

17 Mar 2019 17:29:08
Take out the 1st and replace it with a 3rd or 4th it’s fair but habs will just buyout Alzner if they really don’t want him, they also have the cap to keep him for a year or two in Lavel if they want then buy him out.

Agree1 Disagree1

17 Mar 2019 01:13:24
Habs - Jets
Drouin Laine

Bergevin and Habs Western Scout spent 2 days in Winnipeg and watched Jets and Wild game

Reportedly Bergevin wanted Laine straight up for Drouin but Jets wanted a 1st as well

Laine and Drouin are having similar years, stats wise and neither likes to backcheck, which is pissing off their respective coaches

Bergevin thinks that Laine might mesh well with KK and Armia to offset his defensive weakness

Didn't happen at the deadline but look for it over the offseason if Jets don't go deep in the playoffs.

Believable1 Unbelievable12

17 Mar 2019 03:36:49
Ya I'm sure the jets are going to give up one of the best goal scorers to come in the league since ovie.

Agree4 Disagree1

17 Mar 2019 13:50:20
I read Laine is one trick pony. Scores lots of goals but nothing else. Maybe I don’t agree though. I don’t watch Jets so don’t know. But still very much better than Drouin yes. Or maybe is just on better team? Laine is not such good goal scorer as OV no. OV is best ever. OV has 163 goals after three seasons, Laine 110 maybe. Is very big difference.

Agree3 Disagree3

17 Mar 2019 14:40:00
I wouldn’t trade Laine for Jack Huges tbh. Only way jets move him is if they get an offer that clearly benifits the team, a trade request or contract demands Jets can’t meet.

Honestly if I were the Jets and I got a offer sheet with 4 1sts I wouldn’t match.

Agree1 Disagree6

18 Mar 2019 08:08:53
Jets would ask for Kk with Drouin.

Agree0 Disagree1

18 Mar 2019 14:05:00
Laine is a 20 year old that has scored over 100 goals while Drouin is a lazy floater that even playing on his hometown team the Habs can't motivate him. No way the Jets do this trade and they will match any offer sheet.

Agree1 Disagree0

18 Mar 2019 15:36:35
Hahahaha god I wish from mtl.

15 Mar 2019 21:10:36
2020 3rd rounder

2019 1st rounder

Calgary free's up salary cap space for Tkachuk signing and get a solid pick and prospect back, Mtl gets some much needed defense help

Believable4 Unbelievable15

16 Mar 2019 00:26:49
I think CGY would accept that. Poehling seems like a pretty good prospect and could definitly use the pick. MTL could use Brodie.

Agree2 Disagree1

16 Mar 2019 04:41:46
Habs could use Brodie but not at that price, he’s a solid top 4 guy but he isn’t that young and habs shouldn’t pay basically 2 first for a D that isn’t older then 25 imo. If this was Hanifin that would be a different story.

Agree1 Disagree3

16 Mar 2019 05:05:19
Ever since Brodie and Giordano paired up, they’ve been great. Calgary has a strong defense and wants to keep it that way. Not a rebuilding team, they don’t need rookie or pick. They want to win now.

Agree3 Disagree2

16 Mar 2019 13:53:44
Don't really see either team doing this. Value is not far off though.

Agree2 Disagree1

16 Mar 2019 15:11:49
I wouldn't want to see that. That's a lot for Brodie. 2 first round picks. no thanks. he's decent, but I think he jus looks a lot better with Giordano than he probably really is.

Agree1 Disagree3

17 Mar 2019 19:02:34
Is Brodie better because of Giordano? Or is Giordano better because of Brodie? Maybe they make each other better?

Agree1 Disagree0

18 Mar 2019 08:03:59
I'd give Phoeling and a second rd pick for Brodie or the first rd pick and Calgary gives mtl a second rd oick.

Agree0 Disagree1

18 Mar 2019 08:04:37
Hahahahahaha keep dreaming from montreal POV. You want a top 15 pick plus wjc MVP A prospect for a 29 year old defenceman who has 1 year of contract left. No thnx.

Agree0 Disagree1

18 Mar 2019 08:05:48
Oil give Valimki with Brodie.
