Toronto Maple Leafs:

- Kasperi Kapanen

Philadelphia Flyers:

- Samuel Morin

==

Toronto needs that physical defenceman on their blueline. Morin is 6'6 and 210lbs. Would fit that need perfectly.

The Flyers have a lack of depth on RW. With Simmonds looking like he can be on the way out from Philly and Brayden Schenn being traded, the Flyers need to improve.

Both players have had AHL success but could not turn it into NHL success.

2707

1.) 16 Jul 2018 06:32:54
Toronto needs rhd imo.


2.) 16 Jul 2018 12:45:26
Would want a righty. Also have heard a lot of people praise Morin on here but never really seen him play. However been really impressed by kapanen and think his speed and skill is about to make him break out. He’s been used as a 4th liner and on the P. K. but is about to get time with Kadri plus PP.


3.) 16 Jul 2018 14:59:20
What about McKeon from the Canes? He shoots right.


4.) 16 Jul 2018 15:20:43
I would not trade Kappanen for a LHD. The leafs would rather trade Brown or Hyman.


5.) 16 Jul 2018 17:06:50
McKewon makes more sense. Still a little hesitant to trade kapanen tho. Not saying he’s untouchable lol I’d trade him in a package for an upgrade on D. Just believe in him enough that I wouldn’t risk a straight swap for someone else really unproven. He has all the tools to be really good in today’s NHL and still only 21.


6.) 16 Jul 2018 17:07:43
And with JT replacing bozak, that means kap and Johnsson should get a good opportunity to replace JVR And komarov.


7.) 17 Jul 2018 08:03:55
I'd ask the Ducks if they're willing to do Manson/ Montour for Kapanen + pick/ prospect.


8.) 17 Jul 2018 12:34:27
I would too @benn. Just think it’s a very big + for Manson and a fairly big one for Montour.


9.) 17 Jul 2018 14:05:27
Yeah, that's probably true. I have no idea how much value both guys have.


10.) 17 Jul 2018 14:40:43
Manson hasn’t even started his 4yr/ $4.1mill contract there. Trading for a young Dman that good with 4 years term at a good cap hit Will be extremely expensive. And I believe the team still has RFA control after (might be wrong on that), but that’s another advantage.


11.) 17 Jul 2018 18:16:51
Manson is like 26 I believe so he’s not young he’s in his prime ducks have no more RFA control.


12.) 17 Jul 2018 20:55:45
Guys, if you really want to trade for Roland McKeown do it, but not a great idea. He isn't going to be more than a 3rd pairing/ 7th defenceman in the NHL. You could probably sign somebody better and without giving up a player.

McKeown has 35P in 140 AHL games.


13.) 18 Jul 2018 12:14:22
No value for philly. hextall hangs up phone.


14.) 20 Jul 2018 15:00:25
And they would say yes as long as the prospect is Timothy lilijegreen.

Ana:Montour

Tor:Lilijegreen, Kapanen,2rd 2019.


 

 

02 Jul 2018 21:23:02
Leafs need a physical defenceman. Perhaps Darnell Nurse would work?

With pieces like Kapanen+Brown coming back to the Oilers?

2707

1.) 02 Jul 2018 21:58:59
Edmonton dosent do this and I’d personally would be hesitant to trade Kappanen but I would for Nurse.


2.) 02 Jul 2018 22:19:23
Toronto gets 1=Shea Weber and Max Pacioretty and 3rd r 2019
Mtl gets 1=Mitch Marner and Kadri.


3.) 02 Jul 2018 22:22:11
He was the best D in oilers last year, why trade him for 2 more bottom 6?


4.) 02 Jul 2018 22:28:35
bruno, that’s brutal haha I hope you’re a habs fan with that offer. Hell no tho.


5.) 02 Jul 2018 22:46:05
Yeah not a chance oilers accept that.


6.) 02 Jul 2018 22:57:19
@bruno

I’d like whatever your on. Thanks.


7.) 02 Jul 2018 23:06:44
I think I’d rather give the habs Kadri for free and keep Marner then make that trade.


8.) 02 Jul 2018 23:59:45
No reason Oilers should trade Nurse, especially to the Leafs. I see a potential final coming between these teams.
Edmonton has the same aspirations as the Leafs, and Nurse will be a big part of helping Oilers accomplish this.


9.) 03 Jul 2018 01:08:56
Easy no from Oilers.


 

 

30 Jun 2018 21:36:46
Carolina Hurricanes:

- (RW) Jesse Puljujarvi

- (LW) Milan Lucic

- (G) Al Montoya

Edmonton Oilers:

- (D) Justin Faulk

- (G) Scott Darling

===

Oilers buy-out Scott Darling.

If Jeff Skinner is on the move, Milan Lucic can fill his spot. After a bad year, he can rebound.

With Cam Ward and Scott Darling gone, Hurricanes get a veteran backup with Al Montoya. They can go after Robin Lehner in free agency.

Oilers get a help on defence and help on the PP.

With Andrei Svechnikov and Jesse Puljujarvi on RW, Carolina is starting to build a scary offence.

2707

1.) 01 Jul 2018 02:55:29
Darling and Lucic are both cap dumps right? Now in any non biased oilers opinion Lucic has more negative value but let’s say they’re equal. Montoya dosent have any value and if he does it’s only a 6th or 7th I’m sure Everyone will agree. Now Jesse Puljujarvi a former 4th overall pick in 2016 who has been in light terms underwhelming for for both the oilers and there AHL affiliate.

You quote “Faulk could get much more than a prospect who has so far been a failure.

Faulk is a top 2 NHL right handed defenceman. ”

Yes oilers fan Jesse Puljujarvi has more value Evegeni Svechnikov but not by much both have proven about as much and have similar potential.

You also said “ Faulk excels in all areas of the game. The only reason he is not a big name player is because he doesn't score 50+ points. He's an excellent defenceman, just not a 50+ point producer.

Most teams have their ''star'' defenceman that play top 2. And most have that defenceman that IS a top 2 and plays well but isn't a #1 defender on a team (even though Faulk can easily be #1 on 50% of teams) “

You are contradicting yourself why would Carolina trade a top 15 deffensman “ number 1 deffensman on 50% of teams “ as you quoted for a good but not great prospect who looks to be penciled in as a 2nd/ 3rd line RW for the oilers.


2.) 01 Jul 2018 18:05:21
You know VB, I'd defend myself if your post had more than 1 agree on it. It already means people know you're wrong, which saves me a paragraph! :)


3.) 01 Jul 2018 18:34:22
People disagree with vbb because they don’t like him, Not because you’re right lol this is an awful trade. There were goalies like Hutton and mrazek and others that are twice as good as Montoya that teams can have for free today. He’s a nothing in his deal. Lucic is, and I’m not a fan when people overuse this term, but negative value. It will cost to get rid of him. Darling doesn’t have good value, probably very poor value, but better than lucic. So you want canes to accept pulijarvi for Justin Faulk and taking a portion of lucics terrible contract?! This is awful, oilers fans disagreeing with VBB tho is just par for the course.


4.) 01 Jul 2018 18:47:41
1. Montoya is a cheap backup, no point of signing Mrazek or Hutton to multi million deals.

2. Lucic had ONE bad year and suddenly, he's ''negative value''? Cool.

3. Scott Darling finished with a what, .890 save %? Carolina gets the chance to get a better goalie while also filling a hole on LW.


5.) 01 Jul 2018 19:03:43
You don’t think that lucic contract is bad? Lol okay man. Secondly, Eddie Lack/ Scott Wedgewood at $650k, Mrazek at 1.5 mill, kari Lehtonen still out there. Don’t tell me a team would give assets for Montoya when there’s free options at pennies on the dollar. Foolish.


6.) 01 Jul 2018 19:50:09
And if Montoya is a good goalie at a cheap price, why did chiarelli go get Mikko koskinen at 2.5 mill to take his job? Makes zero sense for a cap troubled team to over pay a backup if they thought there’s was good and a lot cheaper.

Also there’s ‘disagrees’ and ‘unbelievables’ on a post that Tavares has signed with Toronto lol don’t judge based on that.


7.) 01 Jul 2018 20:02:09
Yes 2707 oilers fans disagree with me cool but the reality is man all my points were valid and you can’t come up with a counter argument. All the sudden Lucic has negative value? The minute he signed that big contract he had negative value he was on the “buyers beware” list a Peter Chareli overpayed for that experienced top 6 physical presence. Everyone knew that contract would get worse and worse maybe not this soon but it happened. Meanwhile Darling had a terrible year but is more of a wildcard then Lucic and has a much better contract.

People can disagree but the fact is if you can’t even respond with a counter argument either you are unintelligent or wrong.

And Jim’s right why get an AHL goalie when you can get a 1b like Lehtonen or Mrazek for free.


8.) 01 Jul 2018 22:14:37
2707 come on bruh.


9.) 01 Jul 2018 23:34:12
@vb @jim

You don't know what you are talking about buddy.

1. Milan Lucic had a better year than Darling (Although it's hard to compare since one is a forward another one is a defender) . Darling was expected and signed to be a starting goalie, while Lucic was signed to be a physical presence. And counting that in, Lucic's contract has an extra one million on it and about 2 more years. You are seriously giving up on Lucic after one year? In 2016-17 he scored 50 points with the Oilers. It's cute how you think after one year, all of his value is gone after being a regular 50-60 point scorer in the NHL? Cute.

2. An AHL goalie? Montoya is an NHL backup. Check all of his stats, 2 seasons ago, he was one a great backup goalie with a .912 save %. He just played on two bad teams last year. Montoya is already signed and is proven he can handle the job, he is most likely cheaper than any other goalie with a 1 million cap hit.

3. Montoya is better than Eddie Lack and Scott Wedgewood is not proven in the NHL and was not capable of handling a backup job last year.

4. Puljujarvi at least plays in the NHL, while Svech has trouble playing in the AHL. Also, Puljujarvi is much more skilled that Svechnikov and an all-around better player. Nobody can argue that. Also with a higher ceiling.

5. Number 1 defenceman on 50% on teams does not mean he is in the top 15 defencemen in the NHL, that's not how numbers work. For example, a team like St. Louis, they have Pietrangelo and Parayko who both are better than Faulk. Or let's say Tampa Bay with Hedman and McDonagh. You really need to think more sometimes.


 

 

29 Jun 2018 22:02:10
Edmonton Oilers:

- (D) Slater Koekkoek

Tampa Bay Lightning:

- (LW) Tyler Benson

==

Anybody else ever notice Slater's last name is just Koek added on to a Koek?

2707

1.) 30 Jun 2018 19:12:45
Just what the oilers need another LHD.


2.) 30 Jun 2018 20:06:22
^^ agree, finally.


 

 

24 Jun 2018 20:36:50
Edmonton Oilers:

- (D) Colby Williams

Washington Capitals:

- (G) Al Montoya

==

A minor trade.
Washington Capitals need a backup and Montoya is a cheap one.

Ryan Mantha's career looks to be over due to an injury. Colby Williams looked fine over the past two AHL seasons and could fill that hole on the Barons' roster.

More on Colby Williams:
He was selected with the 6th round pick in 2015 as an over-ager. He's spent the last two seasons in the AHL with the Hershey Bears. He is a tough defender, lacks a little size.

2707

1.) 24 Jun 2018 20:47:17
Sounds good to me Montoya can frig off.

22 Jul 2018 20:35:19
Incase some of you missed it:

VB said that Kapanen is worth 13th overall and Connor Brown a late first.

lol.

Kapanen sucks.

2707

1.) 22 Jul 2018 21:21:52
Well I mean he’s better then you at hockey? If you play in the NHL I’m pretty sure you don’t suck. But you’re right Barrie you could take his spot on the leafs you’re probably a better player. Have you ever watched a hockey game before or did you just read his name online.


2.) 22 Jul 2018 21:24:41
Kapenen doesn't suck. He still has the potential to turn into something. But no gm in the league would give the 13th overall pick for him right now.


3.) 22 Jul 2018 21:47:00
Barrie, Kapanen doesn't suck. He'd be the best winger on Edmonton ;)

Aside from the jokes and stuff, Kapanen ain't worth 13th overall, even in a down draft like 2017. However, he is still a good player, and I could easily see him as a 30-40 point guy.


4.) 22 Jul 2018 23:37:11
Why did you change your name Barrie? Too many people calling you out for being a tool?


5.) 22 Jul 2018 23:51:49
Kapenen doesn't duck he has all the tools to be a great top 6 forward.
Is he worth the 13th overall not at the time maybe down the line if he really turns into a stud. He was drafted in the 1st round.


6.) 22 Jul 2018 23:55:33
Kapanen has only played 55 NHL games, is 21 and was mostly used in 4th liner and penalty killing roles. (Still got 8 goals) . This season he will get a legit shot in the top 9. Judge him then.

But anyone that has watched him play knows he has the stuff that makes guys successful in today’s NHL. He has hands, work ethic and speed to burn.

13th overall?! No. But he definitely doesn’t suck lol.


7.) 23 Jul 2018 01:40:14
Funny thing is if you count Nuge and Drais as C’s he’d be the best winger.


8.) 23 Jul 2018 07:25:40
Kappy would be first line in edm Barrie so guess that’s how bad edm is off.


9.) 23 Jul 2018 16:04:11
Nice. Can one of my replies at least get posted or.?


10.) 23 Jul 2018 16:46:53
Alright. New account same response here we goooooooo

1. I changed my username because my other account was banned. Probably for bullying Finest for his English and lack of any intelligence. Stick to your Trouba for Matthews trade proposals buddy.

2. Tyhockey, and that first round pick is yet to crack the NHL. This is the moment where you say touche.

3. Best winger? You're pretty funny. You do realize that Drake Caggiula is better than him right now? He actually cracked the NHL. While Kapanen can barely crack the fourth/ 3rd line right now. If you're talking value, then sure, Kappy beats Caggiula but Jesse P's value is about triple that of Kasperi.

4. Drake only played 67 NHL Games (this past season), is 24 and mostly used in 4th liner and penalty killing roles. (still got 13 goals) He has speed and work ethic and an amazing shot!

5. Jeeeeez Vb, if you think Kapanen is worth 13th overall, how much is TJ Brennan and Spencer Abbott worth in your opinion? 1st overall?

Come on guys, If I knew that arguing with Leaf fans would be so easy I would have come back sooner.

Note to Admins: Don't know why my messages aren't going through. Just delete the part that you don't like.


11.) 23 Jul 2018 17:18:12
Lol, your note to admins is funny. "Just delete the part you don't like". they did. your previous account was deleted.


12.) 23 Jul 2018 18:08:02
Yeah, they just deleted you instead lol.


13.) 23 Jul 2018 18:13:00
I posted the Trouba for Matthews proposal as a joke, finest is a habs fan. Not everyone speaks English and is as intelligent as yourself. I’m sure you will be banned again. Your point about Kapanen not being able to crack the 3rd/ 4th line is because of wingers like Marner, Nylander, JVR, Marleau and Hyman that the oilers don’t have. Then you go on about Drake only being used as a 4th liner and a pk role, oblivious to the fact that is exactly what Kapanen was used for. Does vbb’s over value leaf players, absolutely. Are you extremely jealous of the leafs progress and the oilers step backwards, most definitely. If you showed just a little respect for people like the other Oiler fans on this site, maybe administration wouldn’t delete your posts.


14.) 23 Jul 2018 18:52:42
Drake Caggilua better then Kappanen? Well I’m really not sure where you come up with that. And clearly you haven’t watched the leafs because if you did you’d know he broke into the 4th line 3/ 4th in the season and slowly started moving up in the lineup. He’s much better then his stats show. He has game breaking speed 2nd line potential he is very likely to develope into Chris Kriender/ Micheal Grabner type of player. Also wouldn’t say Jesse Pulj has “way” more value I actually believe Yamommoto has more value ( yes I know spelt wrong )


15.) 23 Jul 2018 22:43:40
Barrie, lol.

You know the reason that guys like Kapanen don't make the Leafs? Depth.

You know the reason guys like Drake are getting 27 points? They're getting time on PP because EDM legit has no wing depth besides Pulj. Drais/ RNH are centres.

And I agree 100% with Leafs17. Be respectful of other people, don't be a prick and make fun of others. Look at yup and MJ. Sure I don't agree with their evaluations all the time, but they're respectful and don't make posts to 'bully' people over their English or to 'bully' someone over their evaluations of a player.

And in all seriousness, why post that Kapanen sucks? Have you seen him play? His speed is gamebreaking. He legit never gets time on PP. I'd die for him to but last year was JVR/ Bozak/ Kadri/ Marner/ Rielly and Matthews/ Nylander/ Marleau/ Gardiner and one of Johnsson/ Brown/ Komarov.

Kapanen was pushed down because of depth. He'll play alongside Naz and AJ and we'll see if he still 'sucks'.


16.) 23 Jul 2018 22:50:25
And if you're basing evaluation on points, is Jesse P really worth 'triple' Kappy?

Pulj 2017/ 18 Stats: 65-12-8-20- (-1)-13:22 TOI-3PPG.

Kapanen 2017/ 18 Stats: 38-7-2-9- (-1)-11:15 TOI-1SHG.

Rounded stats to the 82 Game Mark:

Pulj: 82-15-10-25- (-1)
Kappy: 82-15-4-19- (-1)

And Kappy didn't recieve PP TOI. And Pulj did. And Kappy played 2 less minutes per game.

Sure I'd take Pulj over Kappy. But triple his value? Get over yourself, the facts are all laid out for ya.


17.) 24 Jul 2018 04:22:28
Topshelfslappers the stats for each are deceiving for example almost every one of Puljs starts we’re in the offensive zone where as Kappanen was primarily started in the D zone and almost rarely got offensive zone starts with that being said Kappanen is deadly off the rush but isn’t the greatest east to west player.


18.) 24 Jul 2018 05:08:05
Kappy just needs time to get his timing down. He has a lot of skill but hasn’t been able to get his hands and legs on the same page. He skates so fast that his hands can’t keep up to make the right plays all the time. That happens with super fast players. Clearly mcdavid can do everything extremely well at the absolute highest pace. It took Grabner a long time to figure it out. And a guy like victor Stalberg never figured it out. He would outskate his brain and hands too. If kapanen can figure out how to use his skill at top speed he will be a really good player. If he doesn’t figure it out, his skating alone will keep him in the league but probably as a bottom 6 and penalty killer.


19.) 24 Jul 2018 10:13:24
That conversation is one of the all time favourites of mine.
Thank you for that barrie ;)


20.) 24 Jul 2018 23:59:31
jesus I missed you all hahahahah

Vb overrating leafs players, barrie being a c-nt
Has anything changed?

Guys, asking barrie to show respect is asking a little bit too much, first ask him to treat you as a fellow person then go from there.

Now for a bit of hockey, kapanen would be 1st line rw on the oilers. Is he a 1st line player? no, oilers just have terrible wing depth. Puljiarvi (spelt very wrong) is definitely worth more than kap, but right now I would take current kapanen as a player over pulji.

Also why in the world would you trade kapanen for a 1st right now? I don't think anyone would trade a 1st straight up. anyways, I'd rather use him in a package to get another player.


Soooooo sorry for the long post, missed all you mofos.


21.) 25 Jul 2018 20:23:17
Right on bigZ. Mostbteams wouldn’t give a 1st for him right now but he is more valuable than a late 1st to leafs right now baecaise he’s a good cheap winger and we are ready to win. Obviously if it’s a high pick they grab it and run tho.


22.) 27 Jul 2018 21:49:51
barrie.

much like in fantasy, he has nothing to offer.


 

 

16 Jul 2018 02:57:05
Leaf fans:

Can you explain the Frederik Gauthier selection? He was drafted 21st overall and can't score in the AHL. The only thing that's actually keeping him in the AHL and not the ECHL is his PK ability.

He was never a PPG in the CHL (which in my opinion is a must for a first round selection, excluding defencemen).

2707

1.) 16 Jul 2018 07:43:17
Classic Barrie.


2.) 16 Jul 2018 12:12:15
Heres your answer:
Dave Nonis.


Is there really a point in bring this up Barrie? c'mon man, lmao.


3.) 16 Jul 2018 12:52:43
He was the last ‘safe pick’. Meaning 5 years ago they took him rather than going for a homerun and missing completely. He’s 6’5” centre that plays really smart. So he could always be a 4th line centre. That’s how leafs used to draft. The next year was the change in philosophy where they went all skill (Nylander over nick Ritchie) and then marner over hanifin, and obviously Matthews wasn’t much of a choice, but then liljegren too. Taking risks for bigger pay off now instead of the safe one.


4.) 16 Jul 2018 15:28:31
Ohh 2707 is Barrie that explains the hate post. You litterly knew I’ve played with those players as I mentioned it in the Fantasy league. But anyway Dave Nonis was Peter Charlie Mark Bergivan esq ( sorry habs fans ) made a lot of questionable draft choices ( few good ones like Rielly) . Frederik Gauthier was drafted to be a Brian Boyle type player and he could still be. He’s a career 4th liner he’s great defensively but almost invisible offensively.


5.) 16 Jul 2018 16:05:09
Same reason montreal took mccarron a few picks later. Big strong forwards who were decent skaters. Also a crappy draft after the top 15 probably led a few teams to take the safe pick which they figured would at least make the lineup eventually. In both cases they might still make a teams fourth line some day but I have zero confidence either will make there current teams roster .


 

 

29 Jun 2018 21:59:48
Anybody else find it kind of funny that VB says he played with Joe Veleno and Alexis Lafrenier? Didn't really want to say anything since he might of made more stuff up.

2707

1.) 29 Jun 2018 23:17:46
Actually I have I’m from Saint John NB and I did a free skate with Joe Veleno I guess that’s not really playing with but whatever and last summer I played in the Montreal mealtdown ( a tournament) against Alex Lafrenier and Alex Newhook.


2.) 29 Jun 2018 23:56:43
Who knows. Considering we all love hockey on this site, it is possible that some of us actually played at a high level. We did have someone who was interviewed for GM of the Montreal Canadians, lol. Can anyone remind me who that was? There has definitely been some classics I’ve seen over the years.


3.) 30 Jun 2018 03:50:25
Lol. I forgot about him. wasnt it that GoldenShowers character. one of him many personalities I beleive?


4.) 30 Jun 2018 04:38:58
The highest I’ve played was midget AAA I’m playing my last year of midget in high school hockey. You don’t need to play Semi professional hockey to play with or against good players.


5.) 30 Jun 2018 10:46:43
I believe VB this guy i worked with played with McDavid when they were 17. Its a small world


6.) 30 Jun 2018 14:45:48
Went from playing with or against to just a free skate.
I've never seen more over exaggerating from someone.


7.) 30 Jun 2018 15:52:17
Thanks Sosa. I liked him best when he was Montrealsfinest. Delusional but funny sometimes.


8.) 30 Jun 2018 17:34:10
Montrealfinest is In my fantasy league from the website and he was never goldenshowers. Also Freeskates not really the right word my buddy’s dad rented out out the ice and we went out and did a few drills and scrwed around. Never really talked to him. But whatever.


9.) 30 Jun 2018 23:43:28
Ya I agree VB. Montreal Finest and Goldenshowers are 2 different guys.
Sometimes I think GoldenShowers is now Colt 65 or 66. whatever number.


10.) 01 Jul 2018 05:22:01
It was goldenKnights and I just knick named him goldenshowers. Lol. Pretty certain he was MontrealsFinest. Came about sane time mf left and admin even confirmed sane IP address once. Or at least on multiple new names of MF.


11.) 01 Jul 2018 06:08:37
He’s on as Brock now and GoldenKnights had good grammar.


12.) 01 Jul 2018 06:09:27

Really like what the Oilers are doing so far in the draft. As of right now, they've selected Bouchard, McLeod, Rodrigue.

Bouchard fills a huge need for the Oilers as a right handed PP QB that also has good size. Don't know why some ''fans'' are complaining that this should have been Dobson. Bouchard has much more offensive talent than Dobson, and that's what the Oilers need.

McLeod looks like a steal. Projected to go late 1st (early 20s to late 20s) Oilers pick him up at 40. One of, maybe is the best skater in the draft.

Rodrigue is a good pick. Some controversy because his dad is the Oilers' goalie development coach, but I think that didn't really factor in as much as people think. He was thought of by many to be the best goalie in the draft. PC didn't think he would be there late in the third, so he moved up.

Sucks we don't have a 3rd,4th,5th though.

Guys, if you really want to trade for Roland McKeown do it, but not a great idea. He isn't going to be more than a 3rd pairing/ 7th defenceman in the NHL. You could probably sign somebody better and without giving up a player.

McKeown has 35P in 140 AHL games.

Honestly, kind of makes sense to me. The contracts are pretty close, Jordan Staal's is longer and more expensive, but he's younger and bigger than Little (aha) .

Winnipeg could use some size down the middle, especially if they want to dominate the Western Conference.

Just doesn't really make sense for Carolina. I think they're happy with Staal.

@vb @jim

You don't know what you are talking about buddy.

1. Milan Lucic had a better year than Darling (Although it's hard to compare since one is a forward another one is a defender) . Darling was expected and signed to be a starting goalie, while Lucic was signed to be a physical presence. And counting that in, Lucic's contract has an extra one million on it and about 2 more years. You are seriously giving up on Lucic after one year? In 2016-17 he scored 50 points with the Oilers. It's cute how you think after one year, all of his value is gone after being a regular 50-60 point scorer in the NHL? Cute.

2. An AHL goalie? Montoya is an NHL backup. Check all of his stats, 2 seasons ago, he was one a great backup goalie with a .912 save %. He just played on two bad teams last year. Montoya is already signed and is proven he can handle the job, he is most likely cheaper than any other goalie with a 1 million cap hit.

3. Montoya is better than Eddie Lack and Scott Wedgewood is not proven in the NHL and was not capable of handling a backup job last year.

4. Puljujarvi at least plays in the NHL, while Svech has trouble playing in the AHL. Also, Puljujarvi is much more skilled that Svechnikov and an all-around better player. Nobody can argue that. Also with a higher ceiling.

5. Number 1 defenceman on 50% on teams does not mean he is in the top 15 defencemen in the NHL, that's not how numbers work. For example, a team like St. Louis, they have Pietrangelo and Parayko who both are better than Faulk. Or let's say Tampa Bay with Hedman and McDonagh. You really need to think more sometimes.
