Thoughts?

15 Apr 2019 19:48:03
Leafs already said no to that deal, they have more interest in Khaira.

15 Apr 2019 20:55:20
I keep hearing that the leafs are interested in khaira and I don't know why. who would the leafs take out of their line up to add that plug?

15 Apr 2019 21:10:57
Hahahaha these are good.

09 Apr 2019 19:15:17
Ottawa Senators -

• (RW) Dustin Brown (5.875M x 3YR)
• (C) Gabriel Vilardi
• (2019) 1st-Round Pick

(LA dumps 2 contracts and gets breathing room and are able to pursue free agents signings while adding some scoring touch and ottawa gets a good prospect and a high first)

Ottawa Senators -
• (RW) Bobby Ryan (7.25M x 3YR)
Chicago Blackhawks -
• (RHD) Brent Seabrook (6.875M x 5YR)
• (2019) 1st-Round Pick

(Ottawa take on a contract for 2 more years than Bobby Ryan for a 1st round pick and a prospect, chicago dumps term and bobby ryan could start to look like his hold self alongside Toews)


Brady Tkachuk - Colin White - Drake Batherson
Alex Formenton - Jean Pageau - Max Veronneau
Rudolf Balcers - Chris Tierney - Dustin Brown
Zack Smith - Oscar Lindberg - Vitaly Abramov

Thomas Chabot - Dylan Demelo
Dion Phaneuf - Cody Ceci
Mark Borowiecki - Brent Seabrook

09 Apr 2019 20:44:30
😂 Did Melnyk win the powerball or something?

09 Apr 2019 21:24:49
So. your a sens fan?

09 Apr 2019 22:05:02
Seabrook is not so bad too give a 1st with taking a more expensive cap dump. Maybe if Ottawa took a good chunk of Ryan's contract.

10 Apr 2019 01:44:30
Top 3 pick to dump Seabrook for Bobby Ryan.

10 Apr 2019 07:11:44
This was obviously before the lottery *headshake

11 Apr 2019 15:27:31
Ottawa would not have to eat any contract on Ryan lol his contract is nearly done why eat contract and take term on another that's just dumb.

As for those deals no to both by Ottawa unless Bowen Byram is still available at the time of the pick. The rest of this year's draft is not worth handicapping the team with term and contract to the point that the young guys they want to sign can't be afforded or fit under the cap.

12 Apr 2019 04:57:46
Byram plays WHL. Is no good league. So many players play oh so good in WHL but cannot play nhl. Brooks and Steel is example, yes.

Ottawa does not want old overpaid players like Seabrook, Pfaneuf, Brown. No team wants players like that. Ottawa wants young and cheap. Is good way to make rebuild.

13 Apr 2019 01:39:08
Regardless of before/ after the lottery — Melnyk is the cheapest owner in the league and while it would be beneficial to the Sens for them to eat bad contracts in exchange for picks/ prospects during their rebuild, he’s too much of a penny pincher to do it.

Owning sports teams is really a pursuit for the super wealthy (people who do not do it to try and make money but for a hobby/ bragging rights) and corporations who can gain from an advertisement/ marketing angle. Melnyk is neither.

alec martinez - korbinian holzer

john gibson


before you judge please look at their full stats and what role they play and salary. thank you

31 Mar 2019 17:34:09
Why would red wings take on his contract aren’t they already in a bit of cap trouble?

31 Mar 2019 23:56:35
Pretty sure Martinez would be in the top 4 before welinski.

31 Mar 2019 23:57:18
Is Larsson so very good player he is worth Nylander? I don’t think so.

02 Apr 2019 07:19:33
wtf with the detroit trade? 1)salary cap. 2) i'm pretty sure carrick is worth the 7th as is, wouldn't you want to add a player from detroit for kesler+1st. at least to even out the salaries? if detroit can figure it out cap wise they'd say hell yes deal because easy first round pick, but sheesh that's brutal.

29 Mar 2019 17:46:48
#1
Toronto Maple Leafs acquire (D) Drew Doughty from the LA Kings in exchange for (RW) William Nylander, (D) Nikita Zaitsev, (2019) 2nd-Round Pick & (2020) 1st-Round Pick.

Kings get a top line winger to play with Kopitar, a depth defencemen to fill a hole in their defensive core and two decent draft picks. Leafs get their top 2 defencemen while also shedding a little cap space for breathing room.

#2
Toronto Maple Leafs acquire (D) Jakob Chychrun from the Arizona Coyotes in exchange for (C) Nazem Kadri & (D) Timothy Liljegren. 

Leafs get a young defencemen to help out their defence core while Arizona adds a good 2nd line center to their lackluster center depth and adds a good young prospect who could turn into a top 4 dman in a couple years. Leafs are more of a contending team so that's why they'd rather have the firepower now then later while Arizona is a fringe playoff team.

#3
Toronto Maple Leafs acquire (RW) Jesse Puljujärvi from the Edmonton Oilers in exchange for (D) Jake Muzzin.

Low price but helps the Leafs shed more needed cap space and gives edmonton a much needed top 4 dman. Change of scenery for Puljujärvi aswell.


Toronto Maple Leafs Projected Lines:

Zack Hyman - John Tavares - Mitch Marner
Andreas Johnsson - Auston Matthews - Kasperi Kapanen
Patrick Marleau - Frederik Gauthier - Jesse Puljujärvi
Trevor Moore - Nic Petan - Connor Brown

Morgan Rielly - Drew Doughty
Jakob Chychrun - Travis Dermott
Rasmus Sandin - Igor Ozhiganov

Frederik Andersen
Garrett Sparks

30 Mar 2019 12:32:25
With Doughty this would mean the Leafs could have, with Marner, four $10 million plus players on their team next year. Can't see this happening, plus the Kings would be able to get a better return for Doughty than this.

31 Mar 2019 00:00:30
Why must Edmonton make trade for Muzzin? Puljujarvi is not very good, no. Muzzin is much good player and Toronto paid very much for him. Is Puljujarvi worth a 1st + 2x2nd? I don’t think so. I don’t think Puljujarvi is worth much just now anymore. Is not Toronto want to win now too? Is good trade for future, but not for today, no. Muzzin is UFA after next year and maybe won’t resign with Edmonton, so we maybe lose Puljujarvi for nothing?

I don’t think is good trade, no. Not for both teams is good trade.

02 Apr 2019 18:01:54
How is a guy a top line winger that barely is averaging 0.5 ppg? It's not like he's counted on in the defensive zone. And a horrible contract. Probably top 7 worst nhl contracts.

28 Mar 2019 11:33:59
Edmonton Oilers acquire Travis Konecny from the Philadelphia Flyers in exchange for Ryan Nugent-Hopkins.

Edmonton Oilers acquire Bobby Ryan from the Ottawa Senators in exchange for Milan Lucic, Matt Benning & a 2019 2nd-Round Pick.

Edmonton Oilers acquire Drew Doughty from the LA Kings in exchange for Jesse Puljujärvi, Kailer Yamamoto, 2019 1st-Round Pick & Oscar Klefbom.

Edmonton Oilers acquire Alex Galchenyuk from the Arizona Coyotes in exchange for Kris Russell & Ty Rattie.

Edmonton Oilers acquire a 2019 7th-Round Pick from the Florida Panthers in exchange for Sam Gagner.


FA Signings:
• Micheal Ferland 2.25M x 2YR
• Carl Hagelin 2.75M x 2YR
• Alex Chiasson 2.75M x 2YR



Projected Lines:

Travis Konecny - Connor McDavid - Micheal Ferland
Carl Hagelin - Leon Draisaitl - Bobby Ryan
Alex Galchenyuk - Jujhar Khaira - Alex Chiasson
Colby Cave - Cooper Marody - Zack Kassian

Darnell Nurse - Drew Doughty
Andrej Sekera - Adam Larsson
Ethan Bear - Evan Bouchard / Kevin Gravel

Mikko Koskinen

28 Mar 2019 15:18:26
Every trade is dumb, especially the nuge trade that's horrendous. No way arizona takes that for galchenyuk like what are you thinking rn and i'd honestly hold onto gagner rather than getting a 7th round pick, ya we save some cap but like bru.

28 Mar 2019 16:21:06
Possibly the worse thing about this is how hagelin will get more the ferland as a Ufa. Ferland is going to get a 5x5 from some team.

29 Mar 2019 17:42:59
I'd say the Galchenyuk trade is the worst thing lol.

16 Feb 2019 02:26:16
Los Angles Kings Trade:
Ilya Kovalchuk (LW - [25% Retention] 4.70 Million x 3 Years)

Colorado Avalanche Trade:
Matt Nieto (LW - 1.95 Million x 2 Years)
Nicolas Meloche (D - 0.85 Million x 2 Years)
Conditional 2019 3rd Round Draft Pick [Condition: Pick is only transferred if Colorado qualifies for the 2019 Playoffs]

- Los Angeles gets value for Kovalchuk now, before he diminishes on the fading team. Nieto is a viable piece who could be traded in the future of the rebuild, and Meloche is a nice piece (former second rounder) .
- Colorado doesn’t give up too much to acquire a solid piece that really helps their depth. Beyond Rantanen/ MacK/ Landy, there isn’t much support, and they only take on appx. an extra 3 million in cap, which they can afford.

16 Feb 2019 14:44:50
I’d love to see Kovy in a New Jersey but I think he’d excel more in the East.

16 Feb 2019 21:22:30
Avalanche are out of playoffs. They are pursuing youth movement. I doubt they want old man Kovalchuk. If he couldn’t help LA playing with Kopitar and Carter, I fail to see him doing anything in Colorado playing with guys a lot less talented.

Canadian Cup Favourite after those

15 Feb 2019 14:58:29
Not Canadian Stanley Cup favourites. Awful goalie situation still, the bottom 6 and bottom pairing defensmen aren’t good, maybe average at best.

15 Feb 2019 15:40:25
No from oil.
No from oil.
No from oil.
No from oil.
No from oil.
Yes from oil.
Not even close to be a cup contender.

15 Feb 2019 16:21:31
A lot here. going to be hard to be brief, but I’ll do my best.

First two trades, I think we need RNH more than we need Nylander. And Nurse is better than Hamilton in my opinion. I like the physical play of Nurse, while Hamilton is a pussy.

The third trade, Hoffman is good, Reimer we don’t need or want.

The fourth trade, do we really want to be trading a recent 1st round pick for a pending free agent that we can’t afford to re-sign? Is Zuccarello going to drag us into the playoffs all on his own?

The fifth trade, LA can't afford to make, and I don’t think they are foolish enough to accept that anyway.

The sixth trade, sure, why not?

15 Feb 2019 19:59:25
McDavid wouldn’t even be able to entice a team to take Lucic.

06 Feb 2019 01:45:19
Rumor:
Kings Trade: Martinez
Islanders Trade: 1st or 2nd, plus Blade Jenkins

06 Feb 2019 04:34:41
I wouldn't give a first for Martinez.

01 Feb 2019 17:06:46
To Montreal: Ilya Kovalchuk


To LA Kings: Karl Alzner

A bad contract for a bad contract.

01 Feb 2019 18:42:46
This would be the only way I'd trade for kovalchuck.

06 Feb 2019 01:54:30
I think I would be
from LAK: Kovalchuck (25% Retained)
From MTL: 2nd round 2019.

29 Jan 2019 19:02:58
Kings - J.Carter

Jets - N. Petan and 1st rounder in 2019

Carter will help the Jets & Petan gets a fresh start

Thoughts????

29 Jan 2019 19:22:16
Why is it always Petan. he is in every proposal now.

29 Jan 2019 20:29:54
Its always Petan because he's young, talented and can't crack lineup. They should sit Roslovic down for a few games (light a fire under his Azz) and put Petan in more to showcase him.

29 Jan 2019 21:47:38
Nope. The Jets don't need Carter and don't want his contract. Carter wouldn't leave LA anyways.

29 Jan 2019 23:52:38
The Jets don’t want Carter and his contract.

31 Jan 2019 17:56:49
Petan is Winnipeg's best trade chip, yes, but as the pieces get lost as cap hell encompasses the organization it's those guys in the minors that will step up to fill those holes as it happened in pittsburgh. Winnipeg can expend some of these players but it's necessary to keep some good players in the system.

06 Feb 2019 01:56:23
that would work if the kings retained 50% of his salary. overall great trade for the kings because they get another 1st.

29 Jan 2019 00:30:38

26 Jan 2019 16:18:59
I can't tell if all this makes Oilers better, it does right now, but sacrificing too much of the future.

Most of these trades are a no though.
Florida says no, the passed on draisaitl to take ekblad and I think there's no regret.

I like nuge for Hamilton, but Oilers might add a little.

Don't gamble nurse for nylander.

Too much for zucc. Just try to sign him
Same as stone. If they hit free agency playing with McDavid is a big draw.

Not sure how you convince the other 5 teams to help by taking a bad contract away.

26 Jan 2019 16:31:40
I can’t tell if this was all a joke or not because these are effed up.

26 Jan 2019 17:23:41
First one, idk if either team makes it. Florida has enough good centers and Edmonton imo needs Drais more than Ek.

Second, honestky, i don't think its terrible, but then you’ve got to bring in some scoring help if RNH is gone.

Nurse for Nylander isn't bad either imo, i can't see Toronto doing it because of the whole ‘promise’ thing, but valuewise isn't bad.

The Zucc trade is brutal for Edmonton.

Idk ifnthe Stone trade is decent, cause i feel like its too many good young pieces to give up.

Arizona doesn't touch the Fischer deal.

Dont think the Isles give up a 1st to take essentially identical contracts.

Brown > Lucic, no from LA (contract and player)

Vegas doesn't need more grit, their fourth line is Carrier/ NBellemRe/ Reaves.

And Calgary doesn't need defensive depth, espeically at that price. Calgarys defence is solid.

26 Jan 2019 19:30:40
Sekera's salary and term if half of ladds, so the 1st does make sense. And flames need the depth going into the playoffs, a lot of news saying they need a backup goalie and defensive depth. Smith and Prout won't cut it.

26 Jan 2019 23:48:38
Hanifin/ Brodie/ Gio/ Hamonic/ Andersson/ Stone/ Kly

They can bring in anyone for dirt cheap, hell, Chris Wideman from Florida or so if they really wanted. They don't need or want a 4 million Russell.

Mikko Koskinen
Cam Talbot


Lucic & Brown are similar in salary and term.
Sekera takes half of Ladd's term.
I think it's a very good idea.


If you wanna just say no without reading. Go look at Lucic's money and term and compare it to Brown's then see who is better offensively. And look at Sekera & Ladd and do the same thing before you say unbelievable.

26 Jan 2019 22:49:30
Brown is better offensively and defensively what's your point?

27 Jan 2019 10:21:49
In no world does Nylander get you Klefbom straight up. Why would the Oilers trade their best D anyways.

wtf are you on buddy.

25 Jan 2019 16:25:48
Edmonton Florida trade would be amazing.

25 Jan 2019 17:33:49
Why trade drai for Hamilton and ferland when ferland Will Walk next season? Then its drai + 1st round pick for Hamilton hahaha.

25 Jan 2019 21:35:07
This is so weird, cause some are beyond brutal for Edmonton and others aren't very good for the others.

25 Jan 2019 21:37:05
Lol These are pretty bad.

25 Jan 2019 22:29:30
Take Ferland out and add another defender.
Draisaitl for Hamilton and bean maybe.
Or draisaitl and a first for Hamilton and de haan.

25 Jan 2019 23:00:52
Why would Florida want Loungo, Riemer and Talbot.

17 Jan 2019 21:45:29
Los Angeles Kings:

•) Jake Muzzin

•) 3rd Round Pick 2019

Toronto Maple Leafs:

•) 1st Round Pick 2019

•) Rasmus Sandin.

17 Jan 2019 22:20:12
Seems fair as the Leafs get a good player that they desperately need for their playoff push for a prospect, albeit a good one and a draft pick that the Kings that need to rebuild.

17 Jan 2019 22:27:17
I would not trade Sandin.
I like Muzzin game but not worth giving someone that can be better.

17 Jan 2019 23:15:39
Id imagine LA not offering the 3rd round pick with muz.

18 Jan 2019 02:57:46
I’d offer Liligren and 2nd.

18 Jan 2019 04:42:20
I got to agree with tyhockey on this one. Reports on Sandin’s play at higher level this season seem to indicate that he will be a damn good player. At this point, I got to think 10 years of Sandin is worth more than a couple years with Muzzin.

17 Jan 2019 21:09:51
Kings Trade
Doughty
6th Round Pick 2019

Leafs Trade
Kapanen
Zaitsev
Liljegren (AHL)
1st Round Pick 2019
4th Round Pick 2019 (Blues Pick)

If the Leafs where to pull this off I understand that Gardiner and Hainsey will be walking as UFA's as Doughty's contract would be to much for next year's Cap, with that said Rosen will take over Gardiner's spot Hainsey will be more difficult but not impossible, plus Zaitsev's 4.5 mill is off the books as well, Bracco might be called up with Kapanen Traded as he has really improved.

Thoughts?

17 Jan 2019 21:17:49
The Kings would expect a much better package then this one.

17 Jan 2019 22:09:58
My thoughts are you need to stop posting the same garbage proposals with minimal differences and understand none of these are remotely close to being realistic. You’re getting a top 3 dman in the league in Doughty and Kapanen is the main piece going back. That’s horrendous.

17 Jan 2019 22:28:25
Much as I love have Doughty that won't get you him and his cap would kill us.

17 Jan 2019 23:17:07
This beyond brutal, you need to stop posting these same trades over and over again my god none of them are good or even close to being good. Doughty is a top dman in the world like come on this is bad.

18 Jan 2019 01:32:25
Beyond brutal. And the leafs have no cap i guess haha

18 Jan 2019 05:14:54
Doughty rumors are really heating up again. Leafs can’t afford him without moving significantly more salary than suggested here. Which means basically Nylander would have to be included.

This offer looks very similar to one put out in an article, written by a professional hockey analyst, in a real hockey e-zine. This wasn’t a rumour posted on a forum. It was legit. To quote the author: “It won’t be 2x1st, plus all those others, because Brian Burke doesn’t work in the NHL anymore and Doughty isn’t 21”.

As much as I love Doughty, I don’t think Leafs should pursue him anymore. We can’t afford him without losing at least one member of the core right away. And likely wouldn't be able to re-sign Rielly if he was on the team. And that 8 year contract of his is a bit much. Doughty, like Keith, could easily go into a steep decline the last half of that contract. It would cripple us as is. If he tanks, his contract would put a bullet right through the heart of the team.

16 Jan 2019 03:08:07
Flames trade: Smith, Magipane, 2019 1st round pick

Kings trade: Quick.

Ya I’m sure that’ll do it. Nawt.

Deadline Deal:

Los Angeles Trades: Jake Muzzin [LD - 2.0 Million (50% Salary Retention - Original Salary: 4.0 Million) x 2 Years] + Kyle Clifford [LW - 0.7 Million (50% Salary Retention - Original Salary: 1.4 Million) x 2 Years]

Toronto Trades: Carl Grundstrom [LW - 0.80 Million x 3 Years] + Garrett Sparks [G - 0.70 Million x 1 Year] + 2019 1st Round Draft Selection + 2020 2nd Round Draft Selection.

Imo, this is a lesser version of the McDonagh trade. Basically, the way I see it, Sparks = Clifford, Sparks goes instead of Woll/ Scott because the Kings could use a young, NHL ready goalie rather than a prospect, then the rest of the pieces are for Muzzin. Grundstrom is easily an NHL Forward next year, and with LA's depleted team, could slot into a chance he'd never get in Toronto. The 1st and 2nd are two picks that would be nice to have in the upcoming drafts for a team without much prospect depth. To be honest, I'd willingly part with another B-C tier prospect on top of the package, [Bracco, Borgman, Rosen, etc] or even a guy like Connor Brown, just not Liljegren or Sandin - for a guy like Muzzin who is a #3 guy with only a year left, it just isn't worth it on top of a 1st and Grundstrom.

Toronto Lineup:
Johnsson/ Matthews/ Nylander
Kapanen/ Tavares/ Marner
Marleau/ Kadri/ Hyman
Clifford/ Lindholm/ Brown [Ennis]

Rielly/ Muzzin
Gardiner/ Zaitsev
Dermott/ Hainsey [Ozhiganov]

[I know I said Muzzin is a #3, and he is. He's not a #2, he's just the most capable out of the remainder on Toronto's blueline to play #2].

I’d imagine LA wants better prospect.

09 Jan 2019 04:05:59
I don't have any real issue with the value here but why would LA want sparks? The two backups they already have have been better. Plus they still have quick as of now.

@Habby

True, maybe Woll or Scott instead of Sparks. I just saw that organizationally, the Kings don’t have much goaltending depth, so i wanted to add one in, in case they might trade a guy like Quick away, then its just Campbell whos young

& @McJ

Idk who I’d put in, cause for just Muzzin, doesn't Liljegren + 1st + 2nd seem like a high price? Cause Grundstrom, by my accounts, is the leafs third best prospect and imo the Leafs best forward prospect, unless people like Trevor Moore more, cause Grundstrom is almosy a lock to become an NHL Forward, and be that middle six grinder forward.

09 Jan 2019 15:37:48
They do have some goalie depth in the organization just not any highly touted goalies after quick. But sparks doesn't improve this. I think if they trade muzzin they would at least want to improve in another area.

09 Jan 2019 15:53:56
If they don’t want Borgman, then Bracco right Rosen is it. Like you said, and a-prospect like Sandin or Liljegren is too much for an old bottom pairing LHD. Muzzin would be good to help fill the gap left by Gardiner’s departure. He lends support until Sandin is ready. I don’t for one second believe Rosen will be as good as Muzzin in that spot.

10 Jan 2019 14:25:36
I honestly don’t see how this is comparable to the McDonagh trade even if lesser. Tampa gave up a first and a second (maybe 2 firsts), Namestnikov, Howden and Hajek and got no retention. They got better players, but the retention adds and the prospects here don’t compare to what Tampa gave up (and McDonagh was hurt when traded as well) . Muzzin is a legit 2nd pair D and I’ve heard him called LAs best Dman so far this year.

21 Dec 2018 02:28:34
WPG: 1st Round Pick 2019, Petan, Kulikov
LA: Muzzin

Jets get a strong 2nd pairing LHD to play with Buff. Kings get a 1st and a younger play who had junior success with Liepsic. Also Kulikov is in it to balance the salaries.

21 Dec 2018 13:52:12
I would have to think LA would want something better than that. Probably something like Roslovic or Vesalainen. Or, if they wanted defense, something around Niku.

22 Dec 2018 11:31:16
Just don’t think the kings concern while trading a good NHL Dman is getting a guy who had chemistry in junior with their latest waiver pick up 5-6 years ago. Like Marcus said, one of the top prospects would have to go. Kings had discussed muzzin tontoronto in Nylander deals apparently and then suggestions of kapanen+ came out. Just don’t think Petan+ does it.

22 Dec 2018 20:05:29
I would really love to get Muzzin though, if a first and something not too heartbreaking would do it, I would be pretty tempted. We would need to do some cap manipulation though.

Morrissey-Trouba
Muzzin-Byfuglien

That would be a pretty stout top 4.

11 Dec 2018 13:15:50
Kings Trade
Doughty

Leafs Trade
Kadri
Zaitsev
Bracco (AHL)
1st Round Pick 2019

Leafs get there man on Defence getting Doughty.

Thoughts?

11 Dec 2018 13:47:50
Even if LA considered this (anything is possible at this point), the leafs can’t afford Doughty’s huge contract unless LA retained some money.

11 Dec 2018 14:28:52
If you want doughty expect marner to go the other way. I am sure zaitsev could go as well to help with cap. The notion you can ask for a defender of that caliber who has term for scraps is laughable.

11 Dec 2018 15:11:34
Marner>Taresanko And Paryanko as a package.

11 Dec 2018 15:20:08
Are we talking about the blues no. so VBBBVVBB do your self a favor stick on topic.


Also Marner is not more valuable than tank and parayko.

11 Dec 2018 15:51:40
somebody hit the reset button on vbb he’s glitching out again.

11 Dec 2018 16:03:10
I am glad one of the older posters sees this and is calling it out. Lol.

11 Dec 2018 17:22:35
Leafs can’t afford another guy making $11mln a year; the only way it would work is if LA retained a significant portion of the contract (which they wouldn’t because it’s for another 8 years or whatever) . And even if they did the price would be ridiculously exorbitant (and rightfully so) .

Think Nylander, 1st, Liljegren, Sandin, etc.

11 Dec 2018 19:09:41
Marner.

13 Dec 2018 16:21:11
Vbbvbb, if Marner is worth taresenko plus paryanko, then Duchene is worth McDavid plus Bouchard lol.
