Simple Trade Idea:

Jake Gardiner [LD - 4.05 Million x 1 Year] + Garrett Sparks [G - 0.75 Million x 1 Year] + 2020 3rd Round Draft Selection to the Los Angeles Kings in exchange for Alec Martinez [LD - 4.00 Million x 3 Years] + 2019 6th Round Draft Pick.

- Los Angeles is evidently attempting to win now, hence signing Kovalchuk and trading for Dion [both at large price tags]. If they are really trying one last ‘go-at-it’, then Gardiner improves their team more than Martinez, as they lack a true offensive dman like him [Doughty is two-way; Dion, Muzzin and Forbort are defensive]. Sparks solidifies the backup role, as Budaj is a question mark imo, and he gives them a chance to win on back-to-backs.

- Toronto acquires a better shutdown dman while giving up the better overall dman. Still, they acquire defensive insurance for the next two years, at a relatively cheap price, rather than having to pay Gardiner north of 6.0million. And while LA is trying one last ‘go-at-it’, Toronto would rather players with term, albeit if they are worse.

LA Dcore:
Forbort - Doughty
Muzzin - Gardiner
Brickley - Phaneuf

TOR Dcore:
Rielly - Hainsey
Martinez - Zaitsev
Dermott - Ozhiganov.

22 Sep 2018 20:41:00
I think LA says yes for the reasons you stated but I don’t think Toronto pulls the trigger. Maybe if Martinez shot right.

22 Sep 2018 21:15:57
Maybe then LA could add in a second? Or LA trades the third instead of Toronto?

Cause I’m in favour of getting controllable assets as Toronto, and not overpaying for UFAs like Gardiner [basically saving some UFA years at a cost controlled price]

Lol, i hardly watch the Kings, but i assumed that Martinez is still a solid dman. Maybe not the offensive force, but maybe defensively sound? And if we get that, then Rielly/ Martinez/ Dermott is a solid LHD for three years imo.

23 Sep 2018 00:15:51
Maybe not a 2nd unless Gardiner is going to sign an extension with Kings? Maybe LA adds a conditional pick of some sort but it’s a good post.

23 Sep 2018 18:17:44
Yeah, could see something like the 3rd being removed and a conditional pick being sent Toronto’s way if Gardiner resigns. I think Sparks has to be in the trade tho, or maybe McElheinney or sumting. kings def need a backup better than Budaj.

07 Jul 2018 03:18:30
LA Kings:
• Jordan Subban
Nashville Predators:
• 2019 4th-Round Pick

Vegas Golden Knights:
• Malcom Subban
Nashville Predators:
• 2019 2nd-Round Pick

Maybe J Subban can find chemistry with his brother PK and they could bring the brothers together.

07 Jul 2018 05:14:37
You know that Jordan Subban is a leaf, not an LA King, right?

07 Jul 2018 05:28:16
Doesn't toronto own jordan subbans rights?

07 Jul 2018 05:33:09
Ummmm sorry to break the news to you bud but LA didn’t qualify Jordan Subban and he signed with the leafs.

07 Jul 2018 06:54:22
I thought he was still a king i'm sorry would TO do that

07 Jul 2018 10:22:26
J subban signed with Toronto last week.

07 Jul 2018 15:38:51
I don’t think leafs signed him to flip him into a 4th. If he goes through camp, doesn’t make the team or doesn’t show he could help the team in an emergency, I’m sure they would be happy to get a pick and move on. But they signed him as an option for the most needed position. I’m sure they want to atleast see him through a camp first. Also he was a UFA who signed for league minimum a week ago. If there was ANY mutual interest between him and Nashville they would already have him.

07 Jul 2018 22:27:34
Lol. like 20 people telling him Jordan Subban is now on the leafs. I think he gets it. Simple mistake.

08 Jul 2018 05:37:55
Yeah 2707 you do realize all those post were probably made over the course of a couple hours and they were added probably at the same time.

08 Jul 2018 07:59:12
Yeah, when I wrote it no one else’s had showed up, probably the same for everyone else.

29 Jun 2018 06:00:00
We all heard the rumours about Lucic. His family is in LA. He wants to be close to them. Kings, Sharks, and Ducks won’t want him. Coyotes are the best option.

Coyotes: Strome
Oilers: Lucic and 1st 2019

Oilers get good cap space. Also, Strome isn’t working out with the coyotes. Maybe with his brother and his friend, McDavid, things would be better for him. He is also a first round pick with good potential.
Arizona gets good leadership for the young talented players and they get a 1st rounder.

29 Jun 2018 06:28:51
I saw the article you got this from and as I don’t think coyotes would part with Strome for that, I do believe they would consider moving him if oilers added another piece that makes it interesting. Just idk what they’d add.

29 Jun 2018 16:43:03
Yah no way the Yotes touch that Strome still has potential imo Lucic just about cancels out all the value the 1st holds.

17 Jun 2018 23:34:31
LA Kings:

- 10th overall pick

Edmonton Oilers:

- Jake Muzzin

LA Kings need to start rebuilding slowly. They get a great player at 10. Their D-Core is still strong with Doughty, Martinez and Forbort.

Muzzin put up 42 points this season. Could also run a PP. That's what the Oilers need.

18 Jun 2018 02:39:13
Even tho divisional rivals this isn't that bad, Muzzins got a good cheap contract and would help LAK clear space to resign DD. Not sure if Oil would do this, even with Chiarelli at the helm.

18 Jun 2018 03:39:02
Lol wtf no from oil. Another LHD and one who is 29 lol.

15 Jun 2018 00:11:20
Unlikely Scenario, but considering EK most likely wants out of OTT. what if.

Erik Karlsson to the Los Angeles Kings in exchange for Drew Doughty.

Maybe picks and prospects added in; maybe Rieder, Ladue + 2nd goes to Ottawa while Dzingel + Harpur go to LA. or something like that? I'd assume EK has more value than Doughty tho.

This is simply because finding a suitable trading partner for EK is hard. And finding a suitable trade for EK is also hard; if Ottawa is getting 'pieces' back, and not a 'star', they're losing the trade, plain and simple.

As for this, its simply that EK wants out of Ottawa, and Ottawa needs a completely fresh look, and Doughty could help with that,

For LA, after a couple years of failure, I would have to think they need a shakeup: losing to the Sharks, expansion Knights and not making the playoffs does such. Trading away their best player for an equal talent shakes the dynamic of the team, and may help to make LA a more offensive team, compared to the defensive style they played w Doughty.

And both players have 1 year term left, so that balances too.

15 Jun 2018 06:38:04
I’m not sure If Doughty has any say in if he gets traded or not but there is 0% chance he will welcome a trade going to Ottawa. However if he doesn’t have any NMC well then sucks for him because i'm sure Kings take a good look if they can get EK.

15 Jun 2018 11:26:20
Even just doughty and a 2nd rounder for karlsson and a 4th rounder i could live with.

Mcjesus why wouldn't doughty want to come home to Canada? Pretty dumb comment.

15 Jun 2018 14:36:39
Because Ottawa is the worst Franchise in the nhl and belongs in the KHL.

15 Jun 2018 16:16:35
Why would Doughty not want to come to Ottawa? Are you that obtuse man?

The Senators are a raging dumpster fire at the moment. The owner is a cheapskate and consistently mettles in the operations to the detriment of the team. There are MULTIPLE scandals surrounding the team that are not going away anytime soon. The team is going to be hot garbgae next year and as it currently stands, will not have their own first round pick. They are the league's doormat.

Is Ottawa a nice place to live? Sure. Would any player looking for a chance to win in the near future want to play there? No. They are a joke.

15 Jun 2018 16:59:35
If MELNICK was as cheap Ryan wouldn't be making 7.25 right now and alfie and Heatley spezza wouldn't have gotten the contracts they did. that's just hear say. he's just a spoiled rich guy who acts like a fool and hired the wrong replacement for murray. Hoffman will likely be traded. Randy Lee if found guilty will be fired. drama gone.

They are far from worst team in league carolina has those rights atm.

15 Jun 2018 17:43:50
Lol um I’m not even going to answer why Doughty wouldn’t wanna play for Ottawa lol.

17 Jun 2018 15:14:05
He never said he wouodnt wanna come to Canada. He precised Ottawa. And i don't blame him I live in Ottawa and want out lol.

17 Jun 2018 22:53:07
When exactly did this happen colt66?

Because you don't have an answer mcbs.

03 Jun 2018 03:31:12
Jake Gardiner (D - 4.2 Million x 1 Year; Extension - 5.25 Million x 4 Years) + Jeremy Bracco (RW -ELC) + 2018 1st Round Draft Selection (#25) to the Edmonton Oilers in exchange for Matt Benning (D - RFA; Extension - 2.4 Million x 4 Years) + 2018 1st Round Draft Selection (#10).

- Edmonton upgrades bigtime on defence, and gets their true offensive dman, who, if played on the top PP unit, could be a perennial 50-60 point man as McDavid’s point man. He may be suspect defensively, but that's because he doesn’t have support on defence; Edmonton has Darnell Nurse that can compliment Gardiner’s ‘wild’ style well.
- Toronto downgrades in general in defence, but gets a dman of need: a more defensively sound dman. They upgrade in terms of picks, and thus, that pick can be traded for more defensive assets for the ‘now’.

2018 1st Round Draft Selection (#10 - From Edmonton) + Calvin Pickard (G - 1.0 Million x 1 Year) to the Los Angeles Kings in exchange for Jake Muzzin (D - 4.0 Million x 2 Years) .

- Los Angeles, despite being involved in Phil Kessel trade rumors, should really be looking at a solid rebuild, and should be trading some of their veterans in order to acquire higher picks. They also acquire a decently young backup goalie who could probably fetch decent value at the 2019 trade deadline.
- Toronto acquires their true top pairing shutdown dman. Muzzins older than most of Toronto’s team, but he provides excellent shutdown prowess, and a solid veteran presence. Muzzin is not necessarily a household name, but he's a solid, veteran dman who would improve Toronto vastly.

(Basically, Gardiner + Bracco + Pickard + #25 for Muzzin + Benning; imo, that's not too far off, Gardiner [w. extension] + #25 gets Muzzin, Bracco and Pickard gets Benning)

Free Agency:
Austin Czarnik - 1.5 Million x 3 Years
Michael Kempny - 2.2 Million x 2 Years
Patrick Maroon - 3.0 Million x 1 Year

William Nylander - 6.0 Million x 7 Years
Andreas Johnsson - 2.25 Million x 4 Years

Zach Hyman - Auston Matthews - William Nylander
Patrick Marleau - Nazem Kadri - Mitchell Marner
Andreas Johnsson - Austin Czarnik - Kasperi Kapanen
Patrick Maroon - Par Lindholm - Connor Brown

Jake Muzzin - Nikita Zaitsev
Morgan Rielly - Matt Benning
Ron Hainsey/ Michael Kempny - Travis Dermott

Frederik Andersen
Garrett Sparks.

03 Jun 2018 12:35:00
Edm doesn't need another LEFT handed D man. Come on people. Nurse. Klefbom. Russell. Sekera. Now Gardiner? And Matt Benning isn't good enough for your second pairing.
Oilers aren't giving you 10th overall for leftie Gardiner. Sorry.

03 Jun 2018 12:36:19
I would just rather trade it for Muzzin than Gardiner. Lol.

03 Jun 2018 13:09:34
I see where your coming from, but a lot of articles that I’ve read, at least for Toronto, aaid that although a #1 RHD is a priority, a #1 d in general is a priority, albeit RHD or LHD. because you can try and play people off-hand. Should be the same with Edmonton, a 1 offensive dman should be their number 1 priority, because a #1 RHD offensive dman limits the amount of players, and often, you’d find RHD worth more simply because of this. I’m pretty sure you can get players to play offhand and it won't be too bad tbh, but idk.

But Gardiner and 25 for 10 isn't that bad, is it?

03 Jun 2018 13:37:03
I’d rather keep the 10th overall rather then trade it for Muzzin. Also I agree with yup on this one Edmonton is pretty stacked with LHD although he’d instantly become their top pp dman. Gardiner would be on the Bottom pairing with sheltered offensive zone starts.

27 May 2018 14:55:13
LW Miles Wood
LD Mirco Mueller
2019 3rd round pick

LD Jake Muzzin

Significant cap savings for Kings getting 2 guys on very affordable deals. Devils finally get a top LD

27 May 2018 17:53:14
So a 6 dman and a 3rd liner for Drew Doughtys partener and one of the premier shutdown dmen in the league? don't think so.

27 May 2018 18:09:54
Woods for sekera :)

26 May 2018 23:52:46
Buffalo Sabres Plan:

Jason Pominville (RW - 5.6 Million x 1 Year - 28.6% Salary Retention) to the Dallas Stars in exchange for 2018 3rd Round Draft Selection + 2019 5th Round Draft Selection.

2018 1st Round Draft Selection (SJS) + Johan Larsson (LW - 1.475 Million x 1 Year) + Eric Cornel (C - ELC) to the Los Angeles Kings in exchange for Tanner Pearson (3.75 Million x 3 Years) .

(Kings are probably looking to rebuild after a dismal end to 2017/ 18; Pearson looks to simply be a 40ish point guy, is expandable for a mid 1st and two young pieces) .

Zach Bogosian (D - 5.145 Million x 2 Years) to the Colorado Avalanche in exchange for Duncan Siemens (D - RFA) + 2019 3rd Round Draft Selection.

(Similar to Colin Wilson deal last year, Avs take on a meh player with a higher cap hit to upgrade their team) .

Sam Reinhart (RW) - 5.0 Million x 5 Years
Robin Lehner (G) - 4.0 Million x 3 Years
Nicolas Baptiste (RW) - 1.0 Million x 2 Years

Free Agency:
David Perron (LW) - 5.5 Million x 4 Years.
Matt Calvert (RW) - 2.5 Million x 2 Years
Petr Mrazek (G) - 2.0 Million x 2 Years [Assuming Philadelphia does not qualify]

Sam Reinhart (5.0 Million) - Jack Eichel (10.0 Million) - Tanner Pearson (3.75 Million)
David Perron (5.5 Million) - Ryan O’Rielly (7.5 Million) - Kyle Okposo (6.0 Million)
Evan Rodrigues (0.65 Million) - Casey Mittelstadt (ELC) - Alexander Nylander (ELC)
Matt Calvert (2.5 Million) - Zemgus Girgensons (1.5 Million) - Nicolas Baptiste (1.0 Million)

Rasmus Dahlin (ELC) - Rasmus Ristolainen (5.0 Million)
Jake McCabe (1.6 Million) - Nathan Beaulieu (2.4 Million)
Marco Scandella (4.0 Million) - Victor Antipin (1.0 Million)

Robin Lehner (4.0 Million)
Petr Mrazek (2.0 Million)

- Basically, strip this team of its waste pieces and form a new, faster team identity. Give Eichel a wingman like Pearson too.

27 May 2018 00:23:19
Some makes sense. Decent value on a lot of it, but 3 more years of robin lehner as the go to guy at $4mill? Teams in the league have goalies they would throw away better than him. They won’t be better till he’s upgraded.

27 May 2018 01:01:52
You don’t put a 18 year old dman on the top pair.

27 May 2018 03:45:05

True. problem is, he's an RFA, and they needa resign him, and qualifying would be for 4 million. Maybe not three years, but for sure they'll qualify. And I feel he could actually play decent with a better core in front of him.

21 May 2018 15:55:25
Matt Martin (LW - 2.5 Million x 2 Years - 25% Salary Retention) and 2018 4th Round Selection to the Minnesota Wild in exchange for Tyler Ennis (C/ LW - 4.2 Million x 1 Year)

- Similar contracts and cap totals being swapped; one at less of a hit for an additional cost. Martin is worse than Ennis, so the pick is added, however, Ennis’ production for his cap hit is pretty worrisome. Toronto needs more cap hit for the 2019/ 20 season because of Matthews&Marner’s contracts, so they can afford the pricy tag for Ennis for the next year. If Minny wants free agents, then it makes more sense for them to take the cheaper contract, albeit for an extra year.

Jake Gardiner (D - 4.05 Million x 1 Year) to the Chicago Blackhawks in exchange for Connor Murphy (D - 3.85 Million x 4 Years) and 2018 3rd Round Selection.

- Chicago could use an offensively minded dman, Toronto could use a defensive oriented one. Although Murphy has a longer term, and is locked down for longer, Gardiner is the superior dman based on the previous seasons statistics, and that's why Chicago adds the 3rd Round Pick. Gardiner could be useful alongside a true DFD like Brent Seabrook, and Murphy could partner well with Morgan Rielly.

2018 3rd Round Selection (Chicago) + Curtis McElhinney (G - 0.8 Million x 1 Year) + 2019 4th Round Selection to the Dallas Stars in exchange for Valeri Nichushkin (LW - Rights - Contract Extension: 2.25 Million x 3 Years) .

- Dallas acquires two draft picks and a cheap backup goalie to aid Ben Bishop, in order to not overplay him during the season. Mac played better than Lehtonen, and tbh, Dallas needs to move on from him. Toronto acquires a wild card: a guy who was a 30 point man in his first stint in the NHL, and a guy who has been 0.5 PPG in the KHL. He could be great alongside Auston, or could bust out, be worse than Connor Brown, and then defect back to Russia.

2018 2nd Round Selection + Josh Leivo (RW - 0.75 Million x 1 Year) to the Philadelphia Flyers in exchange for Samuel Morin (D - RFA - Contract Extension: 1.5 Million x 2 Years) + 2018 5th Round Selection.

- Philly has a ton of young dmen (Prov, Ghost, Hagg, Sanheim, Myers), as well as some veterans such as Gudas, so Morin seems expandable, especially since his growth has somewhat stunted in Phillys farm system. Its possible he could use a fresh start, and maybe he could turn it around, especially on a team that could certainly use DFD. Philly gets a bottom six winger who never got a chance in Toronto, and a decent pick around 55th overall. Toronto gets a guy who could be a solid DFD for the future, or a guy who may be no more than a 5-6 dman.


(C) Vitaly Kravtsov - MHL:
Comparable: Evgeny Kuznetsov
Rankings: Between 15-25.

If not.

(D) Mattias Samuelson - USA
Strengths: Hitting, Defensive Responsibility.
Rankings: 21-25.

William Nylander - C/ RW - 5.75 Million x 7 Years
Tyler Bozak - C - 3.0 Million x 1 Year
Andreas Johnsson - LW - 1.75 Million x 3 Years
Auston Matthews - C - 10.0 Million x 8 Years
Mitch Marner - RW - 7.0 Million x 8 Years)

Free Agency:
John Carlson - D - 8.0 Million x 7 Years

Valeri Nichushkin (2.25 Million) - Auston Matthews (ELC) - Mitch Marner (ELC)
Patrick Marleau (6.25 Million) - Nazem Kadri (4.5 Million) - William Nylander (5.75 Million)
Andreas Johnsson (1.75 Million) - Tyler Bozak (3.0 Million) - Kasperi Kapanen (0.85 Million)
Zach Hyman (2.25 Million) - Par Lindholm (0.85 Million) - Connor Brown (2.1 Million)
*Tyler Ennis (4.2 Million), Miro Aaltonen (0.8 Million)

Travis Dermott (ELC) - John Carlson (8.0 Million)

Ron Hainsey (3.0 Million) - Nikita Zaitsev (4.25 Million)
*Samuel Morin (1.5 Million), Igor Ozhiganov (0.8 Million)

Frederik Andersen (5.0 Million)
Garrett Sparks (0.85 Million)

Total Cap: 68.725 Million
- Fourth line is the checking line against teams top lines, Hyman, Brown and Lindholm are all defensively responsible and will be the matchup line.

When Matthews and Marner and Dermotts extensions kick in.

Valeri Nichushkin (2.25 Million) - Auston Matthews (10.0 Million) - Mitch Marner 7.0 Million)
Patrick Marleau (6.25 Million) - Nazem Kadri (4.5 Million) - William Nylander (5.75 Million)
Andreas Johnsson (1.75 Million) - Miro Aaltonen (0.8 Million) - Kasperi Kapanen (0.85 Million)
Zach Hyman (2.25 Million) - Par Lindholm (0.85 Million) - Connor Brown (2.1 Million)
*Carl Grundstrom (ELC), Trevor Moore (ELC)

Travis Dermott (0.875 Million) - John Carlson (8.0 Million)
Morgan Rielly (5.0 Million) - Connor Murphy (3.8 Million)
Samuel Morin (1.5 Million) - Nikita Zaitsev (4.25 Million)
*Andreas Borgman (0.875 Million)

Frederik Andersen (5.0 Million)
Garrett Sparks (0.85 Million)

Total Cap: 76.525 Million

With the cap going up, this seems reasonable. If not, a Marleau trade could happen and could become a legitimate possibility.

21 May 2018 18:21:17
U know what u put a lot of thought and energy into this so I read the who thing, some things are questionable? But for the most part very realistic and in depth.

21 May 2018 19:06:29
There is just way to many variables for this to be believable IMO I do like a lot of those ideas tho but I think Carlson gets more and I’d rather a different package for Gardiner and I’m sure Chicago would want more term then 1 year with Gardiner. Valeri Nichuskinin is pretty redundant although I do like him not sure if Dallas Bites.

21 May 2018 19:07:32
Lol ty @Kings.

I didn't have much to do over the long weekend so I decided to make a post regarding what I'd like the leafs future to be like.

20 Apr 2018 05:47:50
The kings haven't contended in awhile with there core and now it's probably time for a Rebuild.

LA: Doughty

Toronto: Nylander and 2020 1st * or Brown , Lindgren, 2018 1st And 2020 1st *

* Conditional If leafs resign Doughty

LA: gets a great package for a rental who will leave for free in the summer anyway

Toronto: gets the advantage of giving Doughty his 8th year and basically ensures he signs there.

LA: Carter

Stl: Kyrou and 1st 2018

LA: gets two A prospect to stack there pipeline

Stl: if they miss out on Tavares they desperately need a top line Center to contend.

LA: Toffoli

Dallas: Honka and 44th overall 2018

LA: gets rid of a struggling yet effective player who'd benefit from a change of scenery.

Dallas: Brings in a pretty consistent 25 goal scorer.

20 Apr 2018 14:19:50
So blues should trade the best ohl player this year and thier first for Jeff carter. 33 year old 2nd 3rd line center who missed 55 gsmes last year. That's a huge no.

20 Apr 2018 18:34:58
He’s an PPG player in the right situation he’s easily a 1st line C. What if saint Louis adds Steen and Thomas and replaces Carter with Kopitar.

20 Apr 2018 20:13:48
Thomas killing it in the ohl playoffs right now. Kyrou was best ohl player this year. I like kopitar but he will be 37 when his contract is over at 10 mil a year. Schenn performed the 1c just fine blues need a 2c but not at cost of kyrou or thomas. They are the future and cheap elc controlled contracts. Blues are better off going for Tavares or statsny. Thomas will be reday in a year or so.

20 Apr 2018 20:47:09
Overpayment on the first two but not enough for Toffoli IMO. Also does Dallas want to trade a young D with potential for a forward?

20 Apr 2018 20:57:11
Like I said if blues miss out on Tavares. Good luck going anywhere with Schenn/ stasney as a number 1c.

21 Apr 2018 00:50:16
I'm sorry but schenn has been the best center we have had in the last 5+ years. Thomas will be able to fill in top 6 very soon. Kyrou is the dynamic rw blues need besides tarasenko. SChen had 28 goals 70 pts +10. The blues dominated the league till injuries and allen crippled the team. Carter missed 57 games with injury and has never hit the 70 point mark he is 33 and when his contract ends he will be 37 38. No thanks. I do however think it's funny you suggest to trade us a center who is worse than the one the blues have for a bad contract and older player. No thanks. Good luck with kopitar, carter playing to 38.

20 Mar 2018 22:32:50
Canucks sign tavaras

Trade baertschi and a 3 rd pick

Phi simmons

Canuck grunland or hutton and a 2 rd pick for maxs domi

Sutter to the kings for a 2 or third

Delzotto for a 3 or 4

Patterson travas simmons
Domi horvat boeser
Lipsic gaudette virtanen

Dahlin tanev
Edler stecher
Pouliot guddy / juolevi biaga

20 Mar 2018 23:08:24
Holy hell man keep dreaming.

21 Mar 2018 01:45:01
Delusional as always.

21 Mar 2018 05:49:07
You think Domi has more value than Simmonds? Regardless easy no from Philly but the rest aren’t all too bad.

21 Mar 2018 11:35:10
Yeah domi is a guy losing value by the day but still worth a chance with a change of scenery, Simmonds is a really good proven commodity. Also a team destined for playoffs next year would pay a lot more for Simmonds with a year left than Canucks probably could anyway.

20 Feb 2018 09:15:07
Caps: Pearson
Kings: Burakovsky

New environment for two players that have struggled a bit this season but still have great potential. Kings need more scoring and Burakovsky gets the chance as 1st liner on Kopitars side and Pearson works in different roles as a middle 6 winger.

20 Feb 2018 15:03:31
Don’t know too much about Kings needs, but for value wise I think it’s pretty good. Good post.

04 Feb 2018 13:00:57
To la kings: halak and 2 round pick 2018 3 round pick 2019
To ny islanders: quick.

04 Feb 2018 15:58:18
In what universe does LAK consider this?
This is very bad.

04 Feb 2018 21:14:54
A cap dump and a 2nd for a 2 time Stanley cup winner and one of the best in the league. ok. How about Dustin brown and a 2nd for taveres. sound about right?

05 Feb 2018 06:49:22
As a Kings fan this personally offends me.

05 Feb 2018 16:04:10
I think you meant 2nd overall pick.

31 Jan 2018 07:57:39
To la kings: vanek
To vancouver: shore and 3 round pick 2018.

31 Jan 2018 09:34:33
Surely they can get a better pick or a better younger player in return or even both for vanek.

According to bob McKenzie, Canucks have had zero interest in Vanek so far. Says teams are most likely waiting to see what happens with kane, josh bailey, Neal, Perron, Hornvqist, even maybe maroon. All those guys are UFA wingers that could be moved, obviously some more likely than others. But Canucks might have to wait for teams that missed out on those guys to come calling for Vanek as a back up plan. But if they weren’t willing to pay enough for a much better and younger player, what’s the chances they pay more than a third and a young player for a guy like Vanek?

31 Jan 2018 17:22:57
There’s always gms that over pay at everyday deadline plus there are 20 teams or so still in the playoff picture so there should eventually be interest from one team.

31 Jan 2018 18:43:03
Yeah. But teams will drop out of the picture in the coming weeks.

31 Jan 2018 19:32:37
Maybe I hope not cause it’s very fun to watch 20 plus teams be more than competitive and the thought that Chicago and Pittsburgh couldiss the playoffs is very intriguing.

29 Jan 2018 23:45:04
Canucks: Gudbranson, Hutton and Vanek

Kings: Valardi

Canucks: Dowd, Chaput and Weirchoch
Vegas: 6th round pick

Canucks: Tanev and gagner
Penguins: Maata and first round pick

30 Jan 2018 00:02:37
lol ok dream on bud.

30 Jan 2018 00:46:16
Why would Vegas want those three contracts?
Haven't all three those guys been on waivers at some point this or last year. You can't just dump off players to them, They aren't stupid. Dream on.

30 Jan 2018 03:43:53
Lol 0% chance.

30 Jan 2018 10:46:35
Vegas doesn’t have the high end talent of most teams, but they have more and better depth players than almost anyone. Why would they take 3 players that couldn’t play every night on a lot of teams?! They have veteran forwards and D better than those 3 that they have tried trading away all year.

29 Jan 2018 22:46:25
Just a thought.

Pittsburgh Trades:
Ian Cole
2018 4th Round Draft Pick

Toronto Trades:
2018 2nd Round Draft Pick (Higher of SJ/ TOR)
2019 6th Round Draft Pick
Roman Polak

Vancouver Trades:
Thomas Vanek


Pittsburgh Acquires:
Thomas Vanek
Roman Polak
2019 6th Round Draft Pick (TOR)

Toronto Acquires:
Ian Cole

Vancouver Acquires:
2018 2nd Round Draft Pick (TOR/ SJ)
2018 4th Round Draft Pick

- Pittsburgh acquires a top six winger in Vanek, who (as Sosa said) could be marvellous alongside Crosby. This allows Kessel, Malkin and Crosby to be spread across all three lines, and gives for more balanced scoring in Pittsburgh. They still are looking for a centre, however, they keep their first, second and third in the upcoming draft, meaning that they can continue to shop with those assets. Plus, Ian Cole has become a 7th dman in Pittsburgh now, not because he's bad, but because they know they won't be able to keep him after this year. To get a piece of value back for him is good (plus, Polak can be a press box guy too) .

- Toronto acquires a shutdown dman to compliment any of Gardiner, Zaitsev or Rielly. This gives them a top 6 of Rielly/ Hainsey/ Gardiner/ Zaitsev/ Cole/ Dermott. They give up a second, but they have two in the upcoming draft, so it doesn't hurt. Plus, both Cole and Hainsey know how to play true playoff defence, so both could help the Leafs win a round or two. Plus, Cole seems like a guy who Toronto would want to sign via free agency - giving him an early audition doesn't hurt.

- Vancouver acquires two picks for a guy who was supposed to be an expirement, that had all the makings of failure. If I'm them, I take it and run.

To la kings: vanek
To vancouver: spencer watson, paul ladue and 3 round pick 2019


To la kings: green
To detroit: forbot, shore, prokhorkin and 2 round pick 2018


25 Jan 2018 19:12:08
I forgot 2 mil retained for green.

25 Jan 2018 20:58:54
I think we really want a first or 2 seconds for green not spare parts.

25 Jan 2018 21:48:21
Vanek on past for 65 points he'll get better offers.

25 Jan 2018 21:49:22
Also people are saying he didn't play well in mtl in the playoff in 17 games he had 5a and 5a its pretty good.

25 Jan 2018 21:59:04
BrockSolid. he really didn't play well for the Habs in those playoffs. I think a moat of those points were in games that were already over from what I remember, he got them, whrn it easier 4-1 or 4-0. during lopsided games.
When the game was tight and ya needed him to he your go to guy. he was no where to he seen.

I think Vanek is / Was and exceptional talent. and would help any team. I think he is more suited as a secondary guy. Him and Crosby could be lethal. In Montreal, he was counted on to be the main man. so maybe not fair.

23 Jan 2018 05:03:54
To la kings: karlsson
To ottawa: muzzin, forbot and 1 round pick 2018.

23 Jan 2018 06:43:32
Not enough from my Kings.

23 Jan 2018 10:50:32
Why not?

23 Jan 2018 19:07:36
Because, it's not. Lol.

20 Jan 2018 20:54:07
Possible trade deadline deals:

Mark Letestu and Mike Cammalleri to the Pittsburgh Penguins in exchange for Tom Kuhnhackl, Andrey Pedan and a 2018 3rd Round Draft Pick.

Antti Raanta and Luke Schenn to the New York Islanders in exchange for Jaroslav Halak, Mitch Vande Sompel and a 2019 2nd Round Draft Pick.

Marco Scandella and Jordan Nolan to the Toronto Maple Leafs in exchange for Leo Komarov, Jeremy Bracco and a 2018 2nd Round Draft Pick.

Evander Kane and Benoit Pouliot to the Los Angeles Kings in exchange for Michael Amadio, a 2018 1st Round Round Draft Pick and a 2019 2nd Round Draft Pick.

Rick Nash (25% Retained) and Michael Grabner to the Boston Bruins in exchange for Matt Beleskey, Anders Bjork and a 2019 2nd Round Draft Pick.

Max Pacioretty (50% Salary Retention) and David Schlemko to the St. Louis Blues in exchange for Robert Thomas, Dmitrij Jaskin, Robert Bortuzzo and a 2017 2nd Round Draft Pick.

Any of these close?

20 Jan 2018 23:03:19
If pitt gave a right handed dman Instead i think that would work better.
idk if that’s worth it for Toronto maybe just go for scandella don’t see a reason to go for Nolan.

According to buffalo gm I don’t think that’ll be enough lol but I’d say that’s fine.
Can’t see why rangers would want Belesky but that’s a good trade for Boston if they are going all in.

For Montreal I could see wanting one more piece or a better piece back than bortuzzo If patches is 50%.

21 Jan 2018 00:01:51
Ty @MJ.

21 Jan 2018 00:38:33
Stl one is bad. They are not trading robert thomas, jordan kyrou, tage thompson or Klim kostin for A RENTAL! . I get that patches has value. don't get me wrong. But he holds no value to a team where their weakness is centers and right wings and absolute strength is LW players. Blues are not 1 player away from a cup. So in this instance 3 of the 4 players are Center/ right wingers and 1 is lw/ rw. SO it doesn't make sense to deal your only prospects (with thomas being the closest) that cover a position of need. Especially with Paul Statsny being a ufa at end of the season. SO once again this will and should not happen.

21 Jan 2018 02:58:46
Redwing. You're Colt aren't you!
You're more a Blue homer than a redwing fan. Your name is a funny disguise tho.

21 Jan 2018 06:33:10
Yeah. I’m 99% sure redwing is colt.

21 Jan 2018 23:42:59
I like blues and redwings. But no one ever post about redwing trades on this board. I'm from Michigan moved to stl after highschool. All my friends are blues fans. I watch both teams but let's be honest since Babcock left they are aweful. Hard to watch.

14 Jan 2018 07:16:09
Canucks: Tanev and Gudbranson
Maple Leafs: Timothy Liljegren and conditional 2 round pick. If maple leafs go to conference finals it becomes first. Also if they sign gudbranson canucks get another 3rd round pick in 2019

Canucks: Vanek
Kings: conditional 3rd round pick: if kings go to conference final it becomes a first round pick.

14 Jan 2018 13:02:29
Liligren is not being moved.

14 Jan 2018 15:49:14
Not going to happen tanev alone could get Liljegren by add guddy they would have to many d man vanek well get way better offers this year he has 31 points in 44 games and if you look at his playoff stats there pretty good.

14 Jan 2018 18:04:55
Tanev alone does not get Lilijegreen. Even with Giddy its still a no from Tor. Lilijegreen was the steal at the draft and he will be if not better as good as EK.

14 Jan 2018 18:20:04
Lilijegreen will not be close to EK there is no way I’ve watched him play on multiple occasions and he has many faults and his offensive game dosent make up for it. He didn’t even stand out at the world Juniors dmen like Dahlen, Makar, Timmons and Mete looked atleast a class above him. Also I’d take that deal Maybe Lilijgreen will be better offensively Tanev would help us out a lot.

14 Jan 2018 18:54:24
Hahahahaha. Likjigren will not be as good as or better than Erik Karlsson. W. T. F.

14 Jan 2018 19:16:14
The problem with this trade is not value. I'm sure it's not that far in value atm since Lilijegree is not porvem yet but when you draft a guy like him, with that much potential and then you get rid of him a couple months after to fix an instant need history has always shown that you will eventually lose the trade. i'm thinking of a guy like Forsberg ( 13 overall for Erat) . And it's not like either of those player will put them over the top. So I believe that Leafs should develop this young RHD since he fits with the age group core.

14 Jan 2018 19:18:23
Not for a bust and a guy who is a total bandaid, that's for sure.
