What if Mtl and Pittsburg made a deal?

Pitts:Sprong, Maata

Mtl: Patches, 2rd 2019

Would Pittsburg consider?


1.) 07 Aug 2018 16:34:48
I don’t think so. Pens can’t afford to trade def.

2.) 07 Aug 2018 16:37:24
Why would Habs?
I've been hearing about Sprong for what seems like forever, however. haven't seen him. And Maata isn't anything special
I'd rather get picks . after the Skinner deal, we aren't going to get the return we would all like to see. so., if they are going to rebuild. let em rebuild, Sprong and Maata aren't the peices I want to see in a rebuild.

3.) 07 Aug 2018 16:48:25
I’d say no from both. Habs would want/ need young talent and picks. Maata is just a good solid D. Would help a good team but habs won’t be able to get the most out of him for a cpl years atleast.

And penguins D is really weak after Letang. Plus Sprong has some upside that they hope will be cheap offense sooner than later.

4.) 07 Aug 2018 19:01:06
I like maata. I wouldn't mind this deal.



17 Jun 2018 18:22:09
Mtl: Domi

Arizona: Chuck

Overall like the trade for both teams both really good young players Domi needed a place like mtl and Chuck needed a place like Arizona. I would of liked to have a second rd pick but eh at keast we get more then what Yakupov got lol


1.) 17 Jun 2018 18:38:39
He got traded look up details before you make a trade.

2.) 17 Jun 2018 20:30:32
Uhhhh skittles, he's tryna state his opinion on the trade.


3.) 17 Jun 2018 20:42:32
Win for the habs. Domi will flourish in montreal. Habs rid themselves of some more baggage.

4.) 17 Jun 2018 20:55:48
@Habby while you may be happy with Domi. It’s definitely not a loss for Arizona.

5.) 17 Jun 2018 21:08:36
Nobody can really tell if it’ll be a loss or not until this upcoming season is done with. Good hockey trade!

6.) 17 Jun 2018 22:06:58
Habby, Why when I criticized galchenyuk I was biased and picking on him and you defended him but now that he is not a Hab, he’s just baggage lol talk about bias, Jesus. All over Twitter and the web is habs fans and fans from around the league saying habs got ripped off and Bergevin is brutal. But you find a way to make it a win when domi has 6 career goals more than galchenyuk had in 2016. Domi had 9 goals last year and 4 of them were empty netters lol justify this trade all you want. I don’t know how as a fan of this team you can’t be calling for Bergevin to be fired after the last 2 years of disasters.

7.) 18 Jun 2018 00:54:20
UnbiasedJim the Habs are adding an Elite empty net scorer compared to a failed center 😉.

8.) 18 Jun 2018 03:34:08
Lol apparently. I’m just saying, have whatever opinion you want of the trade, I think domi has a lot of skill and might break out as a hab, it’s possible. But habby had been adamantly calling me biased and a hab hater for saying galchenyuk was overrated by habs fans, now galchenyuk hasn’t been on their team for 20 hours and he was just ‘baggage’ that they needed to ‘rid’ themselves of lol have your opinion, but stick to it even if a jersey changes on the players.

9.) 18 Jun 2018 11:44:14
It was pacioretty not galchenyuk if you remember correctly jim. You were biased cause you criticized every player on montreal. and to be honest pacioretty can go to as far as I'm concerned I just argued that he was better then saad and I stand by that. anyway. I'd like to see the habs unload about half of the players on this current roster. but especially the floaters like galchenyuk. Talent don't mean much if your too lazy to use it. how can a trade be considered bad for this team? . They suck! All these players and a few more too should have been traded 3 years ago like I said at the time when most other hab fans were on twitter arguing saying they are close and should keep the core together.

10.) 18 Jun 2018 11:46:38
Plus jim if you wanna scroll through the web some more you will find the leafs were after domi too. And the penguins offered conor sheary and one of there top forward prospects for him. so he has value at least as much as galchenyuk. it was a good hockey trade. two guys who were not performing up to expectations with there current team. i'd honestly take domi because he does a bit more when he's not putting up points and he's faster then galchenyuk.

11.) 18 Jun 2018 13:28:13
Actually it was both patches and galchenyuk. And when I said I’d give up patches 5 extra goals a year for Simmonds because he does so many other things if things aren’t going well for him offensively, and you said that I was habs hating lol but you use those words to describe domi over chuck and it makes sense? Lol how can you not think that’s biased? You pick based on jersey. Simmonds is consistently a lot closer to keeping up offensively to patches than domi is to chuck, so what has domi shown you that he does away from the puck that allows him to close a gap that Simmonds couldnt? Lol.

12.) 18 Jun 2018 13:36:45
And it’s not just you. I added Kerby Rychel as a throw-in in a trade to get gudbransson at the deadline and Colt said he was a bust and no one wanted that garbage, a week later he was a Hab and he said he’s really impressed with him and thinks he could play third line for them. I see a trend in Montreal there.

13.) 18 Jun 2018 14:59:24
Domi and galchenyuk both have the same career ppg. I'd consider that pretty close in keeping up on offense. Also pacioretty was close to winning a frank selke a couple years ago which hardly ever happens for a winger so he probably does a little more then score which you try to imply. see how your biased? the difference with me when I say things like this is they are actually true and make sense.

14.) 18 Jun 2018 15:01:46
Plus as of now kerby rychel Is still a bust so don't use other peoples opinon to try and build your argument toward me. As you pointed out yourself my opinion is different then most other hab fans on the web lol.

15.) 18 Jun 2018 15:27:04
Yeah because most habs fans want Bergevin fired. He traded a 27 year old #1 D, a 19 year old Top D prospect and a very talented (albeit not complete) top 6 F in the last 2 seasons and never got back a Centreman (the biggest need of the team for a decade) . That’s a fail no matter how much you want to argue it.

16.) 18 Jun 2018 15:31:30
And saying getting Domi is good because Toronto apparently wanted him too doesn’t help lol because they clearly didn’t want him at that price, or they would have had him. And saying penguins offered Sheary and a top prospect came from who?! Because I also read online that Arizona turned down Auston Maththews for OEL which never happened. Unless the penguins confirm what they offered, I don’t buy it.

17.) 18 Jun 2018 16:21:48
We'll your the web guy man lol. It was actually Arizonas choice of sheary or rust plus a top forward prospect. And the point I was making about the leafs were if they wanted domi then he must be awesome right?

18.) 18 Jun 2018 16:23:17
Plus toronto has a core of 4 or 5 guys that they wouldn't move and I guess there was nothing else arizona wanted.

19.) 18 Jun 2018 16:24:46
Yeah we could have traded Seth jones for ryan johannson like that genius david Poile did or we can tank for a few more years and draft one like everyone else.

20.) 18 Jun 2018 16:43:29
Yeah, David Poile and Nashville is really who habs need to criticize about decision making because their in such a bad spot the last 2-3 years right? lol and the most votes pacioretty ever got in one season for Selke trophy was 156. Bergeron and toews both had over 1000 votes that year and Bergeron had almost 1200 this year. If that’s ‘almost winning’ the selke, then Connor Brown ‘almost won’ the rocket Richard last season with 20 goals lol you’re rediculous haha.

21.) 18 Jun 2018 17:00:06
Yeah he finished 6th in selke voting that year not bad for a left winger. he got those votes by not doing anything but score goals right? And I already said it's a trophy which almost always goes to a center an so I'm quite aware of how many votes bergeron and toews get. how many did simmonds get jim?

22.) 18 Jun 2018 17:04:30
And Nashville is not in much better a spot then the habs were a few years ago so until they actually win a cup who cares. You know like Ottawa was last year yeah they had it all figured out too hey? What I don't understand is how someone can come on here and pump the leafs tires and shoot down the habs and Sens but yet even after getting spoon fed 3 top players in 3 drafts still can't get out of the 1st round. And I'm rediculous? Your funny man.

23.) 18 Jun 2018 17:19:43
Spoon fed players? Matthews was spoon fed to us like most #1 picks. 7 guys were picked ahead of Nylander, and a lot of people wanted hanifin over marner. Nylander was picked in almost the same spot as sergachev. So habs were spoon fed sergachev then too, they just traded him away without solving a team need, blame bergy, not leafs lol.

24.) 18 Jun 2018 17:26:12
And the only way nashville 2 years ago were the same as habs are now is they had Shea Weber on them. Habs now have him, but the don’t have a Josi, an Ellis, an ekholm behind him or a forsberg or Johansen up front. Best they have is patches to be the preds James Neal from that roster.

25.) 18 Jun 2018 17:42:57
I said Nashville is in no better spot then the habs were a few years ago at least read the post before arguing with it. I'll give you nylander that was a good pick. I would have took ehlers though. And if they hadn't taken marner and picked hanifin they would still be just as we'll off. Plus every fan wouldn't be trying to trade nylander for a dman then. I'm not blaming the leafs for anything I applauded that they actually had the sense to do a rebuild after 50 years of futility. but even you would have to admit the matthews and marner picks could have been done by someone with there eyes closed even if they had picked hanifin and laine they would still be in the same boat.

26.) 18 Jun 2018 19:15:12
No, because had they taken laine and hanifin they would be looking for a number one centre like they have been since sundin. Then we would have had to trade hanifin at 19 years old for a winger and try to force him to be a centre. Lol (see what I did there? ) regardless, it’s into stuff that wasn’t the original point: the moment galchenyuk wasn’t a hab, he was ‘baggage’. You can deny that’s team bias if you want, but it’s pretty obvious it is. I’m done.

27.) 18 Jun 2018 22:17:24
They could still have nylander as a center and there defence would at least be better probably still a team that gets to the 1st round of the playoffs see what I did there lol.

28.) 18 Jun 2018 23:37:23
We don’t force wingers to play top line centre. Not a plan for success. See how the third try for Bergevin is after galchenyuk and Drouin because he’s so dumb that while announcing his trade for Domi he says “he’s played some centre too” lol there’s an old saying that the definition of insanity is attempting the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. Just sayin.

29.) 19 Jun 2018 04:24:26
He also said they see him as winger but he could play center in a jam. Don't really sound that crazy to me. Another sign of insanity is hair on your knuckles. I bet you just looked. Didn't you? Lol.

30.) 19 Jun 2018 04:29:05
Nylander has played a fair amount of center over his young career.



25 May 2018 11:38:15
Leafs: 1rd 2018, Johnson

Mtl: Petry (30%retain)

Pertry (3.7million for 3 years left on contract)

Mtl retains on Petry but gets a late first round in a good and deep draft year and a young roster player who imo is ready for a full time role in the nhl next season and mtl can give that too him. Toronto pays a steep price but they a good top 4 RHD on a big retention which makes him a good contract at 3.7 million instead of 5.5. Would leafs consider?


1.) 25 May 2018 12:19:45
montreal would add.

2.) 25 May 2018 12:51:36
Hell no. Johnsson is dominating the AHL since returning and could easily be a 40 point man alongside AM or Mitch. a first + a small add would be sufficent tbh. Not Johnsson.

But, as mentioned by others before, Petry may not be the best option for the Leafs, considering his age and term, as well as the plethora of free agent dmen available next year.

3.) 25 May 2018 14:52:37
Petry for 1 year fine, but not at that cost, and not for 3 years.



10 May 2018 23:33:46
Mtl: Petry, 2rd 2018(55 overall)

Boston: Bergeron

Boston gets a good RHD who just finished the season with 42 points and mtl get a 3 year older but good french center to try to hekp down the middle short term. Deal boston?


1.) 11 May 2018 00:07:32
I don’t know what’d be worse. Being annoying enough to post this to piss people or to actually think that this is fair.

2.) 11 May 2018 04:38:44
Classic colt.

3.) 11 May 2018 15:25:59
Bergeron was knocking on the door of hart Trophy finalist this season, centered arguably the best line in hockey, was a point a game player and scored 30 goals while missing 20 games lol that sounds like the kinda guy teams trade for second pairing D men. so clueless it’s getting unbelievable.

4.) 11 May 2018 16:09:56
Sad sad little troll.

5.) 12 May 2018 14:29:22
Worst thing I've seen in a while, pretty sure you're a troll but if you're serious, you don't really know anything about nhl.



09 May 2018 23:42:36
Mtl: Patches (sign and trade 6×6)

Ott: Ryan (7.25 million×5 years),Brown

With all the prospect depth Ott has down the middle could they be willing to give up a very good center prospect to get ride of Ryan contract and add a top line winger in his prime to help up front. This would make Hoffman available to trade and make mtl better dow the middle while making Melnik happy by getting rid of a terrible contract to get a 3 years younger and better player at a reasonable 6 million contract. Patches does this to help mtl out


1.) 10 May 2018 00:56:18
in your dreams u can add your first this year and I don't even know if we would consider it.

2.) 10 May 2018 00:57:34
hellllllll noooooooooo.

3.) 10 May 2018 00:58:20
mtl counters alzner, Hudon

Ottawa: Hoffman.

4.) 10 May 2018 10:31:12
Brown is much better then Hudon.

5.) 10 May 2018 14:18:50
MTL4LIFE ok you're delusional. Patches is going to be 30 and brown is still a rookie with tremendous potential. And you want to add the 4th overall for someone who has 37 pts this season. Good luck with that buddy, no one is ever going to consider that

6.) 10 May 2018 17:56:11
Patches had his worst statistical year, a year away from free agency and approaching 30. All those things combined could be a big coincidence but every other GM is going to use it to low ball the habs. If they don’t like the offers, they keep him and try to sign him to a big raise, or trade him at the deadline assuming he has a bounce back year. But reality is he’s at his lowest value right now, likenit or not. And that’s not biased, because I know that’s what the next couple mplaint will be. It’s reality. If JVR whonis same age had 37 pts last year instead of 36 or 37 goals, I’d be saying the same thing.

7.) 10 May 2018 20:03:27
So in other words bad contract for bad contract plus a high level prospect giving ottawa yet another aweful trade from colt66. yeah ottawa says feel your head and come back with a fair trade for both sides or just don't come back!

8.) 28 May 2018 00:38:43
No from both sides. Tough to trade with same division rivals that hate each other.

Confirmed trade:


Edm:3 rd 2019

I was very surprise when I saw the trade. Why give a third for an overpaid 3/4 liner? Maybe Edm wants to protect Mcdavid even more? Can Oilers fan explain?


1.) 13 Jul 2018 14:46:29
I haven't seen anything about this trade. Although I do really like Z. Smith and always have. I think he is at least $1M overpaid. I would love him in the bottom six tho. Another leftie tho, Edm needs a rightie winger.
Plus I think Edm only has about $4.9 in cap space and need to sign Nurse to a bridge deal. And maybe one more cheap forward contract.
Also, I would give a 3rd for Smith and hope they retain $1M or so. I've always been a fan of him.

2.) 13 Jul 2018 17:26:45
Can you explain this non confirmed trade?

3.) 14 Jul 2018 19:56:40
Still waiting for the confirmation here.

4.) 15 Jul 2018 03:13:58
I’m still waiting too and I don’t even care. I’m a fan of Smith too.



11 Jul 2018 13:46:37
What do u guys think of the news of the so call threateing emails that came from Hoffmans fiance turned out to be this girl Melinda Karlson grew up in Ottawa with. Did the Karlsons acused them(Hoffman's) too soon beforr actualy tracing down to the real sender? Because after all it did ruin Mike's career in Ottawa and broke the friendship he had within the organazation and the fans. What do u guys think of the situation?


1.) 11 Jul 2018 16:41:55
We'll if this is true then obviously they accused them to soon. But if they hadn't put the wheels in motion they may have never found out who was doing it.

2.) 11 Jul 2018 17:16:31
What are you talking about?! I think you read the headlines wrong. The girl, Melinda, who grew up in Ottawa is Melinda Currey. She married Erik Karlsson and is now Melinda Karlsson lol Unless something new has come out in the last few minutes, Hoffman’s fiancé, Monika Caryk, is still the one they’re investigating.

3.) 11 Jul 2018 18:19:46
Jim I think you read that wrong. "This girl" meaning some random girl, not someone also named Melinda.

Either way, If it's not Hoffmans finance, The biggest question mark I've had this whole time is of its not Hoffmans girl, Why can't Hoffman and Karlsson just talk theme selves in person and be like hey man this isn't us, we are so sorry this is happening to you but we are being targeted and we should go to the police on the down low and figure this out between just us.

This is such a strange story all around that it's come out this much. I don't know what to think.

4.) 11 Jul 2018 18:45:40
Oh okay. I can’t find anywhere, where an update saying it’s not still Hoffman’s girl they’re looking at. I’d be interested to read it though, where is it colt?!

5.) 11 Jul 2018 19:37:59
Wasn't it more than just social media posts but some things actually said face to face as well?

6.) 11 Jul 2018 23:59:16
@thunder, yeah apparently there was a lot of face to face arguments and it was known by all the other wives and gf’s that they hated each other. But The messages that pushed it over the edge (taunting Melinda about the death of her baby and calling her a drug addict) used exact wording that other people had heard Hoffman’s gf use in person about Melinda and that’s what allowed them to make the connection (so I read in some of the stories anyway, nothing confirmed obviously)

7.) 12 Jul 2018 11:50:05
Its in the ottawa citizens where it says that a girl that Melinda Karlson grew up with could be the one who sent that but nothing confirm.



08 Jul 2018 11:55:41
Mtl: Gallagher, Houde

Carolina: Jordan Staal, Rask

Two good small wingers for 2 centers


1.) 08 Jul 2018 15:04:57
Ok so gallahger is pretty good I'll give ya that. But houde? What has he done to even appear he might be good at the nhl level.



07 Jul 2018 10:21:15
Bergevjn pffered Galchenyuk and Nathan Beualieu for Panarin to the blackhawks 2 years ago. Bergy wants to put the bait againsts Clb. Does mtl offer they're first next year and hope for the best? he's a tentalizing player


1.) 07 Jul 2018 13:27:43
I would hope not.

2.) 07 Jul 2018 16:45:24
Adding panarin to Montreal right now is going to do what Phil Kessel did to Toronto. He will be an exciting player, often the only thing worth cheering for on a crap team, and just make them good enough to miss out on high picks. All this does is keep them a 20-25th overall team instead of a 28-31 which they should want to be for the next 2-3 seasons. When Phil left Toronto, we were finally bad enough to get marners and matthews. Don’t add anyone of significance to that roster unless he’s under 23 and cheap.

3.) 07 Jul 2018 22:28:54
Panarin would go to Russia.
Going to Montreal. with a bunch of french people watching your games. scary.

4.) 08 Jul 2018 00:08:23
jim hitting nails on the head on he regular.

5.) 08 Jul 2018 05:31:23
2707 when did French people become scary? You are really starting to seem like a bit of a dick.

6.) 08 Jul 2018 08:02:38
Thanks ovie. I try lol.



05 Jun 2018 16:42:11
Tor: Kapanen, Zaitsev, 1 rd 2018

Mtl: Weber (10%retain)

Im not trolling, I wanted to know if Toronto would take this?


1.) 05 Jun 2018 20:50:42
Toronto wouldn't, but neither would Montreal.

2.) 06 Jun 2018 03:16:24
Id say yes from Habs. big No from Toronto.
Its not that Weber is bad. I still think he's great. its that contract that is the killer .

3.) 06 Jun 2018 12:37:35
Contract a killer? why do we have so much cap space then? There are teams that are in cap trouble but the habs are not one of them. and to be honest I can't see us being in cap trouble for another 3 or 4 years. In which time carey price contract will be the killer one as he could be easily replaced by then probably even internally.

But weber will still be a top 4 dman in 3 or 4 years making 7.5mil when the going rate for a top 4 in 4 years will probably be 6.5 plus. is there any reason to think he can't be effective the same way as chara? I don't see any. people have been saying chara was too slow 10 years ago and he's still a top 4.with regards to this trade zaitsev for what he brings is over paid big time.

Ka penne is still unproven and the habs have enough bottom 9 forwards and the 1st is just not valuble enough to make any difference. Montreal laughs and asked to speak to lou when he doesn't anwser they hang up and block dubas number.

4.) 06 Jun 2018 21:03:33
I agree with the 1st two paragraphs habby but Montreal definitely considers this Weber is old and his contract will start to look worse and worse. It is redundant to pay a player like Weber that much on a losing team. Kappanen is in the mold of William Karlsson while he was on Columbus watch him have a huge season next year. Zaitsev isn’t bad for a 4th dman. A 1st round pick is icing on the cake.

5.) 07 Jun 2018 16:36:19
Dont get me wrong Habby. I like Weber, I jus don't know if he will be able to earn that money at age 35. 36 ect. I hope he does play like Chara in his late 30's.
I hope i'm wrong, but I don't know if he will be able to play at the same level, Chara is one of the best conditioned atheletes in the game.

6.) 09 Jun 2018 11:11:02
I agree with nothing you said vbbbvvbb. Luckily habs management wouldn't either.

7.) 09 Jun 2018 11:38:30
What makes chara any better conditioned then weber?

Mtl would need to gain an asset in order to take Okposo's contract. I would definitely consider acquiring him if it means getting a a couple picks and maybe a decent prospect. Mtl would get some offense from Okposo even if it's at a steep price plus they would be getting good peaces I would hope. I wouldn't trade anything to get him tho or even get him and only get late picks. Need something of quality to take him imo. Still has more value then Bobby Ryan tho lol.

I don't get this trade

Parayko> Nylander

Fabbri> Gardiner

How is this fair for St Louis. Ok you're going to say Fabbri is fragile fair enough. But once he's says healthy he's going to be a 50+ point player that's not even 23 yet. So yes he's worth more then Gardiner.

Good for both sides imo. i'm a mlt fan that's really like Patches although I think him being stranded for guy younger defensemen wouldn't be a bad thing.
