Canucks: Sam gagner (50% retained) 1.55 million roughly, Derrick pouliot 1.1 million 2020, 2nd round pick and 2019 5th

Oilers: Jesse Puljujärvi, Brodziak (for cap reasons)


1.) 21 Nov 2018 21:21:43
Brodz has been a very nice off season addition. He's very liked on the fourth line. I don't think they would give Piljujarvi away for this package at the moment.

2.) 23 Nov 2018 05:37:29
Gagner is worse than worthless. He has negative value. You would actually have to pay another team a pick/ prospect to take Gagner now. He’s looking pretty good on Marlies playing against guys his skill set. Maybe he should just stay there a while.



17 Oct 2018 20:50:07
Chi: Saad

Van: Eriksson (retain 1million), 2nd round pick 2020

Maybe Chicago wants this as Eriksson is still an NHL player and canucks Retain a bit as he hasn’t more years left and then canucks get a guy who could use a change in scenery and add a 2nd to make up a difference in age and skill.


1.) 18 Oct 2018 00:14:50
Lol no. Chicago really really doesn’t want that.



25 Jul 2018 07:25:30
How far of the possibility is this?

Tor: Nylander (rfa right now)

CLB: Panarin (UFA next year)

All signs point towards Nylander being worth 6-7 million a year and Panarin has said he wants to play for a bigger market so maybe he’d be willing to sign with the leafs next summer at a 7x7 deal. Columbus gets a younger player that has potential to play center and get 70+ points and Toronto gets a proven ppg winger that helps with the win now mentality as if think he’s the better player but not for as long as Nylander.


1.) 25 Jul 2018 15:32:38
If panarin was signing for Nylanders money then sure lol but I don’t see that happeneing at all and it would be dumb to trade 5 controllable years of Nylander to upgrade from a 65, Maybe 70 pt winger to an 75-85 pt winger for 1 season.

2.) 25 Jul 2018 16:35:57
If it was a sign and trade Columbus would need to add a piece like Ryan Murray because Nylander is 5 years younger and will probably be better then Panairan in the future but the reality is the leafs can’t afford him he’ll sign for Benn money on the open Market.

3.) 25 Jul 2018 17:51:07
Panarin getting minimum 8.5mil for his contract imo.

4.) 25 Jul 2018 18:30:23
Mcjesus is dead on. If ehlers is 6 mill + and kucherov is 9.5, panarin has to be able to get 8-8.5. Only thing that hurts him a bit is pasta signing long term at 6.6 is a comparable a team will try to use for sure.

5.) 25 Jul 2018 23:19:54
Toronto would have to add for that trade to work.



05 Jul 2018 00:38:05
Tor: Nylander

Van: Tanev, Goldobin

How much is missing to making this go through?


1.) 05 Jul 2018 02:29:30
a lot.

2.) 05 Jul 2018 02:32:51
Add canucks first

3.) 05 Jul 2018 03:22:43
You're missing a lot, As usual.
Sooo one sided to Canuks wow.

4.) 05 Jul 2018 11:40:45
This is equiv to

Petterson for Gardiner+Bracco.

Stop. Please. Nylander gets traded for a young dman with potential (similar age), or doesn't get traded at all. Not for Defensive Lupul and a prospect whos having a hard time making the Canucks.

5.) 06 Jul 2018 11:03:41
No way nylander gets you 2 players. Toronto adds.

6.) 07 Jul 2018 10:20:45
There are fans from multiple teams saying Vancouver adds Balsam. Your comments on every leaf post are redundant.

7.) 10 Jul 2018 16:39:16
If lead fans can read... WHAT NEEDS TO BE ADDED TO MAKE THIS GO THROUGH... the post doesn't say nylander for tanev and goldy...

Man... all the people that jumped to conclusions no have no credability... aka can't read.



23 Jun 2018 19:02:07
EDM: 10th overall, Yamamoto

VAN: Tanev

Remember it’s divisional rival so value has to be ot more from Edmonton’s side and if they think Larsson is worth hall then surely Tanev is worth this. Also no roster players get moved so Edmonton can keep all their good roster players and take on a very reasonable 4.5 million in cap for tjere top pairing defenseman.


1.) 23 Jun 2018 19:52:12
Why not throw in mcdavid too.? When did tanev become a franchise dman I must have slept through that.

2.) 23 Jun 2018 21:21:26
Wtf hahaa seriously where does Tanev get all this value it blows my mind.

3.) 24 Jun 2018 07:57:43
Tanevs a good top 4 Dman with a good cap hit. If the leafs traded our 25th overall and maybe a small add off the marlies for him, I’d be happy. You want oilers to pay a promising prospect and a 10th overall?! Hahaha.

4.) 24 Jun 2018 17:31:50
Jim tbh I wouldn't really consider him a good top 4 at this point he's one of the softest dmen in the league but is still always Injured. The only thing good about his contract is there are only 2 years left lol. leafs were better off with there pick then trading him for tanev. People still think his value is high but it's only cause he is a righty if he played left side nobody would bring his name up good bottom pair IMO when he actually plays.

5.) 24 Jun 2018 19:31:07
Yeah, well a decent RHD is still worth a late first when you see asking prices. I would be okay if they paid that price is all I mean. Like when Hamonic got a mid first rounder, and 2 seconds, I would assume a late first and a mid prospect is still what Tanev could get to a desperate team.

Just a question.
If Sebastian aho from the islanders and Sebastian aho from the canes were to play on the same team, what would their jersey name look like as they both have the same first and last name? Would they have to use the initial from their middle name?


1.) 02 Nov 2018 12:19:43
You'll have to direct this question to the NHL.

2.) 02 Nov 2018 14:30:22
If this post turns into a fight, I will have seen it all haha.

3.) 02 Nov 2018 20:41:51
The older one would be Aho Sr. And the younger one is Aho Jr.

4.) 03 Nov 2018 04:58:40
Bettman would John Scott him and get one traded to Montreal.



17 Oct 2018 02:53:19
I know it’s really early on in the season but honestly should the oilers just fire the gm right now hire and new one (someone within the organization or an agm like Fenton or Futa if they would be willing to come) and start a whole new rebuild?
I find it ridiculous that guys like Draisaitl, and RNH are being paid 14.5 million and can’t produce points without Mcdavid, even guys like puljarvi might aswell find a trade partner with another team and get something before his value keeps decreasing cause Edmonton is not a good fit for him. Possibly guys like Klefbom and Talbot are out on the trade list because I’d say they are underporming for what the organization were originally expecting and if possible guys like Lucic and russell are dumped.


1.) 17 Oct 2018 05:48:47
You must have posted this before the 3rd period of the Jets game. I don’t think there is much Edmonton can do. I don’t think they will get full value for a player like RNH. I do believe they need help at the RW position. If they move Draisaitl up with McDavid, then you need a 2nd line centre.

Just spitballing here. Would you trade RNH and Klefbom for Nylander? Or a package surrounding those players? I really don’t know what Edmonton can do. I don’t think starting over with a rebuild is the answer. I don’t think the fans will want to hear they are going to rebuild again. I don’t want to hear that. They have been rebuilding for half my life.

2.) 17 Oct 2018 07:15:49
RNH and Klefbom for Nylander? Where is FairTrade4all when you need him? The future selke winner RNH and a #1 stud defenseman for an overrated winger.
In all honesty I think the leafs add a 1st and both teams consider it. RNH can still put up pretty good #’s and is better defensively than Nylander. Klefbom is still solid defensively is he not? Then there’s Nylander playing alongside McDavid or Draisaitl and that would be nice to see.
I’d do RNH and Klefbom for Nylander and 1st ( leafs let Gardiner walk) . I don’t know that Edmonton has defenseman in the system that are good enough to fill the void of Klefbom though.

3.) 17 Oct 2018 12:22:14
I think Edmonton would have to make Nurse/ Larsson their first defensive pairing. I’m just trying to think of something that changes the look in Edmonton. AO99 is right. The only threat is McDavid. Edmonton needs some kind of secondary scoring. I don’t know if Nylander is the answer to that problem but he becomes their best right winger. Maybe Toronto has to add a prospect like Johnnson and pick. Is that enough to shake things up in Edmonton.

4.) 17 Oct 2018 14:41:18
Jesus Christ. 4 games into the season they are .500.
Drai and Nuge have 5 points in 4 games. They started off on a long road trip in Europe and play about 8 straight games vs 100 point teams from last season after flying back from Europe. That's a tough start.
If anyone is up to be criticized it's Chiarelli for not doing much and overpaying. I've given him long enough of a chance and am now really disliking him. Second year in a row we start out with Sekera injured and you think fringe guys like Garrison, Gravol, Jerebek can fill in? And last year Gryba, Auuvitu, That's just so bad. Garrison and Benning are terrible together

Now I'll be super critical of coach Todd if he doesn't start the lines he had in the third period last night for the home opener vs Boston on Thursday. They looked good, give it some games and let's get going. Still early in the season and hopefully we can find a few wins vs these teams coming up. Boston, Nashville, Pittsburgh, Washington, Nashville. That's a rough start.

5.) 17 Oct 2018 15:22:55
That’s just it. It’s 4 games in and the cracks are starting to show. McDavid will be spent by Christmas if they keep playing him so much. I just hope for the NHL and it’s fans that McDavid doesn’t miss the playoffs again. Yup you watch this team. Do believe they are a playoff team? Does everything need to go right for them to make it? Can Talbot be good or does he have to be amazing every night for them to have a chance to win? Is Benning better than Bear? That 3rd pairing is scary every time they are on the ice. (Not in a good way)

6.) 17 Oct 2018 19:19:49
Leafs17 I think you’re right about the fans not wanting to sit through another rebuild but honestly it’s what they need. Mcdavid is 21 going to be 22 years old this season, if they tear everything apart they should be done rebuilding (if properly) in 3-4 seasons when Mcdavid is 25, he’s still young enough to where he’s not wasting his prime years. It’s not the ideal situation but when you’re paying RNH and Draisaitl top dollars to be CENTERS but they don’t play center or when they do, they perform badly, I think it’s time to call it time and start from the ground up. Also if with these players they’re a bottom 5-8 team really what’s the incentive to keep this core together?

7.) 17 Oct 2018 22:36:03
Klefbom and RNH makes zero sense for leafs lol

The point of trading Nylander would be strengthening RHD and saving money. So bring back $11 million dollars in a LHD and a Centreman who would be 3rd/ 4th line on the team.

But regardless, it’s early.

8.) 17 Oct 2018 22:41:58
McDavid played 22 minutes in a game that went to OT so he’s not playing a crazy amount. Talbot has to be good and you can argue he hasn’t been for a while now. Chairelli needs to trade for an above average NHL D. One to bump Benning down to third pairing and I think the D would look fairly good IMO.
Klefbom - Larsson
Nurse -?
Russel - Benning.

9.) 18 Oct 2018 00:01:13
A099 I didn’t say anything about the fans or a rebuild. I simply said that Nylander alone was not enough for RNH and Klefbom.
Jim I totally agree that the leafs need RD, they don’t need a center (even though he plays wing also) and need to save money. However, RNH comes in cheaper than Nylander and is better defensively. Klefbom becomes 2nd pairing LD allowing Gardiner to walk. It does not change the RD situation but Nylander/ Gardiner is much more expensive than Hopkins/ Klefbom. I’d still rather a one for one with Nylander and a RD.

10.) 18 Oct 2018 01:30:11
Ya I'm only a Benning fan when playing third pairing with Sekera or Russell myself.
That spot there with nurse is Russells when Sekera is healthy and Bouchards next year. Need a better bandaid than Garrison, Gravol or Jerebek (like Chiarelli thought would be fine when signed them to cheap deal and PTO) . This is what I'm critical of Chiarelli for. Same Efin thing last season when knew Sekera would be out until December and had $7.8M in cap space! Thought a combo of Gryba, Auuvitu and Benning would handle third pairng full NHL time. That's a joke.



11 Oct 2018 22:24:55
While on the Nylander topic, leafs cap is currently about 12.2 million, why doesn’t Toronto offer Nylander a 1 year 11.75 million dollar deal which would be almost 4 million more than what he’s asking for but in return he gets more this one year and can go out and prove he’s worth what he’s asking and next year he’s still an rfa and can get close to marners and Matthews contract so he doesn’t feel cheated or low balled.


1.) 11 Oct 2018 22:40:13
I was wondering when this would start. It's like for 6 months last year when the talk was the leafs signing tavares for a 1 year 15 mil deal. Players who have a choice or at least feel like they have a choice to sign for longer do not sign one year deals. What's happens if nylander did sign that and gets a serious concussion and plays like crap the rest of the year? What does he get next year? 5 million x 3 years?

2.) 11 Oct 2018 23:23:07
Because as an RFA next year we will have to extend him a qualifying offer. The qualifying offer has to be I believe 10% over his last seasons salary. That means next year his qualifying offer would be almost $13 million lol believe me, if there’s a way to scam the system and work out a trick with the cap, Dubas and Pridham would have already figured it out too.

It’s like when Calgary offer sheeted Ryan O’Reilly from Colorado. It was 2 yrs/ 10mill, but they didn’t just do it 2 years at $5 mill each. They made it $3.5mill the first year and $6.5mill the second year. This made it so that if Colorado matched the offer, which they did, the qualifying offer they would need after that deal was up would be $7.150 mill ($6.5+10%) instead of $5.5mill ($5mill+10%) . And that’s basically why it was known ROR was going to be traded after that contract.

3.) 12 Oct 2018 00:52:35
So there ya go I told you why the player wouldn't do it and jim told you why the team wouldn't do it. Next suggestion please.

4.) 12 Oct 2018 02:38:01
Ok makes total sense didn’t know that the qualifying offer was a mandatory one though they could just re negotiate from scratch.

5.) 12 Oct 2018 03:32:02
Like Strome in Edm this summer. As an RFA who made $3M last season they had to qualify him at at least that same $3M. He got $3.1M in an extension.
To qualify an RFA it has to be for a minimum of at least what he made the year prior. That's true.

6.) 12 Oct 2018 14:38:24
Yeah, you can work or whatever contract you want afterwards, you just have to have enough money set aside to atleast cover his qualifying offer in case he takes it. So we wouldn’t be able to touch $13 mill of our cap while trying to sign marner and Matthews lol and if you don’t have the money sitting there to qualify I’m, he gets to declare himself a UFA at 23, which would be one of the worst examples of asset management in league history.

7.) 13 Oct 2018 20:08:35
Qualifying offer isn't mandatory but if you don't offer one and don't agree to a deal he becomes a UFA and you don't get compensation. Could also affect his base when he's arbitration eligible.

8.) 14 Oct 2018 04:35:02
If you don’t qualify him, he walks for free lol so yeah, you would have to qualify him.



05 Jul 2018 11:06:02
Alright leafs fans, what do you realistically expect to get back if they were going to trade Nylander

I’d say guys like doughty, Subban, Josi, OEL, Hamilton, mcavoy, Sergachev, burns, Fowler, Karlsson, Hedman, letang, klingerb, suter, byfuglein, Werenski, Provorov, Pietrangelo McDonagh, Giordano Ellis, Carlson and Barrie are all way out of his value, now maybe a guy like Demers, Tanev, Larsson, Klefbom, Dumba, Leddy, Myers, Ekholm, shattenkirk and Weber are all at his alum or just a very small kinda like a 3rd round pick away from it working out.

But I’m interest in seeing what the leafs fans have to say and try to keep in unbiased cause no he’s not worth Erik Karlsson.


1.) 05 Jul 2018 11:45:21
Ooie let's see, Letang, McD and Barrie don't belong in that first group at all. Nylander could get any of them tbh.


And stop with your Tanev nonsense, apart from Demers, he's by far the worst of that group and we aren't trading an elite potential winger for an oft injured #3 dman.

Imo, what i’d see for Nylander is a player like:
- josh manson
- dougie hamilton (prior to the trade; with an add from TO)
- shea theodore (unlikely, but w a small add from TO)
- slavvin/ pesce from Carolina

Not Tanev. Not Tanev. Not Demers🤣🤣🤣.

2.) 05 Jul 2018 12:14:45
I’m not sure who he could get straight up, probably a name top shelf mentioned. I’d like to see a 1st and maybe a prospect added to get the best return possible, if they were trading him.

3.) 05 Jul 2018 15:47:14
When you put Tyson Barrie in the same group as drew doughty I know it’s a joke already. I’d say both teams should be happy with a swap of Nylander or barrie though. Nylander may be a better player at his peak than barrie, but there’s still a bigger question mark around him than barrie. barrie is what he is. A good puck mover.

4.) 05 Jul 2018 16:23:48
@Topshelf don’t think the canes trade Slavin. I wouldn’t trade him for Nylander if I were canes. Maybe Marner but the leafs wouldn’t.

@UnbiasedJim don’t think the leafs are looking for a puck mover more of a Physical Defensive presence who can take a shot off the 1st PP ( not nessiarly quarterback) and can be a presance on the PK.

@A099 you’re obviously super petty the leafs put together a good team and Nylanders a big piece this post destroyed your credibility to just about anyone. Nylander=Demers?
Barrie>Nylander I’m done talking to you.

@everyone else Nylander is 20 and already a first line winger. When he’s in his prime imo he’ll have similar value to Kessel. But because he’s so young and already debatably Elite he has tremendous value.

One for one value I’d say Paryanko but Saint Louis isn’t in position to trade him for Nylander.

Maybe something around Orlov.

I think McAvoi, Sergachev, Fowler, Letang, Byfugliegn, McDonagh, Gio, Ellis, Carlson and Barrie. Don’t really have anymore value then Nylander.

5.) 06 Jul 2018 11:08:47
@jim I put Barrie on the first group cause he just came off a 57 point season and to what it’s worth he is a rhd that is going to turn 27 in a couple weeks and is about to enter his prime, that will not come cheap plus he had a a very reasonable cap hit so that adds a bit of value

Also I added demers because he is a guy that can do very well in a top 4 playing good defense and can score over 20 points, he’s got a over 51% CF% and he starts about 55% of his shifts in the defensive zone and that’s what the leafs need, a better defensive player, their offends is as good as anyone but their defense isn’t and for the people that don’t want Tanev cause he can barely stay healthy, this guy has played over 60 games in the all of the past 4 seasons while having an 81 games played aswell,

Lastly I said straight up for Nylander, not close and small adds just his value straight up for someone else and for whatever reason being a right shot dman adds value.

6.) 06 Jul 2018 16:08:29
Very hard to find an exact straight up value.

Also, I’m not putting down Barrie. I’m a fan. But having him in a group with those others is hilarious, especially when your reasoning is “57 pts, only 27 and 5.5 mill” Jake Gardiner just had 52 pts, almost exactly 1 year older and only makes 4 mill. I like Jake too. But if someone tried putting him in a ‘group’ of Dmen with doughty, Josi, Karlsson, hedman, burns etc they would be absolutely roasted and rightfully so lol give that head a shake.



23 Jun 2018 08:16:28
Who had a better steal? Detroit getting Zadina with the 6th or veleno with the 30th or canucks with Hughes at 7th or the islanders with Wahlstrom or Dobson at 11th and 12th?


1.) 23 Jun 2018 11:52:44
Wahlstrom at 11th or Zandina at 6th. Veleno is incredibly overrated I’ve played with him ( not at the Q level ) and I believe he’s extremely overrated and did not deserve exceptional status.

2.) 23 Jun 2018 12:03:39
Zadina at 6th.
Though NYI cleaned up nice too.
I don’t understand how Hughes is considered a “steal” considering that’s right in the area he was predicted to go.

3.) 23 Jun 2018 15:01:56
Of the players you mentioned only veleno dropped enough from where they were expected to be considered a steal. I think you will see a couple steals in the 2nd round. Noel marchenko Wilde and mcissac come to mind.

4.) 23 Jun 2018 17:28:48
I agree with McIssac.

5.) 23 Jun 2018 19:09:28
My surprising picks were Arizona and NYR in the top ten. Even Van woth Boquist. Pushing the guy I wanted Bouchard to 10 and Walstrom and Dobson to NYI at 11/ 12. Those two being pushed outside the top ten surprised me the most and what a good two picks ups for the Islanders. Wow.

6.) 23 Jun 2018 19:50:27
There were a few suprise picks but I wouldn't call them steals.

Virtanen is averaging more goals, assists, plus minus, TOI, better Corsi %, shots and takeaways than Nylander this season so I think Toronto adds in a first round pick to make up the difference.

Value is there but blues have no reason to trade Parayko when their forward core included ROR, Tarasenko, Schwartz, steen, Bozak, Schenn and have guys like kyrou and Thompson ready to make the jump to the NHL. Like i said value is there but the motivation or need isn’t there.

SAN Jose doesn’t have a 2019 first it’ll have to be a 2020 first and Columbus i don’t think would want to wait for a 2020 pick as they have a squad that could compete now so it’ll require a roster player or prospects that’s ready to make the jump.
