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.



04 May 2018 21:37:26
Mtl: Gallagher, Julsen, 33 overall

Dallas: Heiskanen

Mtl gets they're LHD to play with Weber while Dallas gets a versatile 50+point / 30 goal winger who's only 25 year old and a 33 overall pick in this draft. Plus they also get Noah Julsen whos ready to play top 4 his year with a guy like Lindell. Would Dallas consider?


1.) 05 May 2018 01:03:18
Not enough from Montreal.

2.) 05 May 2018 01:42:04
Lmao wtf man.

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?



23 May 2018 12:50:00
Possible bust ( little early to tell) of the last 6 draft

2012: Yakupov, Koekoek
2013: Drouin
2014: Reinhart(for second overall)
2015: Senyshin,Crouse
2016: Puljujarvi
2017: Too early


1.) 23 May 2018 18:04:21
Don’t agree that drouin is a bust. ’in my opinion he’s just not being used properly. He would probably have more success playing 2nd line minutes with some power play. He clearly isn’t a top line centerman like the Habs thought he could be, he’s still loaded with skill. could still be a top line player just needs a decent centerman to help him out. With your logic colt you could argue that Galchenyuk is also a bust. I think it’s too early to label Puljujarvi a bust. The others I agree are busts.

2.) 23 May 2018 20:57:22
Griffin Rienhart? Sam Rienhart is a bust over Ryan Murray?

3.) 23 May 2018 21:37:55
Don’t agree Drouin is either. Also don’t know how you can have Sam Reinhart but not griffin Reinhart, same draft as yakupov (taken 4th and hasn’t cracked lineup on 3 different teams) . Other guys there may not have lived up to expectations but are atleast NHL players, and some pretty decent contributors.

Also find it funny that it’s too early to tell 2017 but puli for 2016 is able to tell lol guys in those two drafts could be a single day apart in age. Give them all a bit of time.

4.) 24 May 2018 02:36:54
VB, Ryan Murray isn’t a bust. He’s similar to seabrook (when he was younger) . I don’t think they’d add you to team North America in the World Cup if you weren’t a good hockey player. I wish he’d play for the leafs. He’s just the kind of player leafs need, I’ll take him all day.

5.) 24 May 2018 10:56:07
He’s not a Liane/ Eichel/ Barkov player like a 2nd overall pick should be.

6.) 24 May 2018 12:55:32
Vb Laine/ Eichel/ Barkov are 1OA picks most years. Nobody in 2012 is a player of that calibre. I can't believe i have to say it but not all draft classes are equal.

7.) 24 May 2018 13:29:20
Sense 2010 Murray, Rienhart, Landeskog-Barkov, Seguin, Eichel, Liane

Patrrick is to young to tell but as you can see 4 out of the 7 players are Franchise players. So majority of 2nd overall picks are stars so that allows me to make a statement that all 2nd overall picks should be expected to be elite talent. Sense Ryan Murray is in his prime and didn’t reach his expectations as a number 1 or even 2 dman he is a bust. Discussion over.

8.) 24 May 2018 16:07:23
Sam Bennett (bust), Dylan Strome (bust), Jesse Puljujärvi (bust), Yakupov (Bust), Griffin Reinhart (Bust), Olli Juolevi (bust)

9.) 24 May 2018 17:31:54
Not every top 5 pick is going to be a franchise player. Franchise type players aren’t available on each draft, one can argue that in some cases top picks aren’t elite. You draft the best available players, teams don’t get a say of the talent that’s being drafted. Good example is Ekblad draft year, by your logic VB Ekblad shouldn’t have been drafted 1st, who would you have taken before him? There simply isn’t always elite players on each draft, 2012 and 2017 are good examples, doesn’t mean they’re not good players.

10.) 24 May 2018 20:46:02
Eklblad is Elite imo he’s not a Karlsson Elite but he’s a Alex Pietrangelo Elite. Yakapov is a bust as a number 1 but a better comparison for your statement would be Ryan nuget Hopkins. He’s a good player in the nhl but he never lived up to expectations and is the worst 1 ovr pick of the decade besides Yakapov who is a bust. You can make an argument he is a bust because he is not the Franchise player he was expected to be.

11.) 24 May 2018 20:53:45
Vbb I disagree. Not all draft classes are the same. Just because you're drafted at 2nd overall does not mean you should be a superstar at all. That's just crazy to assume that you should be as good as your draft position. Discussion over.

12.) 24 May 2018 21:20:52
How can you compare Murray to 2OA players in different drafts? Pastrnak just put up 80 points and he was drafted 25th, does that make Nylander and Larkin busts for being drafted earlier and having less points? As mentioned above the talent of every draft is different and you can't compare drafts like that, discussion over.

13.) 24 May 2018 22:19:42
How is Sam reinhart a bust? In 3 years he’s averaged 20 goals and 45 points and this year, he had 50 points on the worst nhl team of the season, he may be better suited as a winger rather than center for now but he’s definitely a top 6 forward in the NHL and most teams would be better off with his services if he was ever traded.

14.) 24 May 2018 22:34:48
When a gm takes a player 2nd overall he expects him to be a star.

15.) 24 May 2018 23:16:49
If your drafted 2nd overall theoretically the only reason is because only one other person your age is better than you. If your a 2nd round caliber prospect but no one is better than you, you’ll get taken first. Doesn’t mean you have to be a super star!

16.) 24 May 2018 23:20:44
Thanks yup, that’s what I meant to say.

17.) 25 May 2018 03:14:15
All draft classes have elite talent or 1st line talent litterly every single draft in the past 20 years.

18.) 25 May 2018 05:33:34
You’re right, but it’s not that easy VB, you can look at every draft for the past 20 years and pick out names of guys that were drafted mid first even 2nd round that have far better careers than guys picked in the top 5. Good example is 2007 Turris is picked 3rd and Subban in the 2nd round. that doesn’t mean Turris is a bust, it just means Montreal found a gem or scouted well. Doesn’t always mean they’re busts. Also people keep saying Puljujarvi is a bust, Might as well consider Tyson jost, McLeod, fabbro busts as well even tho they’re yet to play a nhl game.

19.) 25 May 2018 10:37:01
No, When you draft a young kid at a certain position. You HOPE he becomes a good player or a potential star. You still have to develop the prospect properly in some cases.
Just because you are drafted at a certain spot does not in any way mean you should be that good. They are 18 years old. Lots can happen for the food or bad in the next short few years after drafted.
If you value a player from their draft position, you're an idiot. End of story. Lol.

20.) 25 May 2018 13:06:06
It depends on your definition of a superstar but looking from 1980 to 2013 the second overall pick is like less than 50% hit rate by your definition. Some guys started well and aged poorly (which could still happen with the players you mentioned above) most were solid nhl players but under 50% were "franchise" players.

21.) 25 May 2018 16:13:32
There’s no definitive criteria for what each pick has to be. If you’re picking in the top 10, you have to hope that player makes a big impact for your team down the road. If it’s in the top 3, you hope they have a massive impact and sooner rather than later. But when you’re trying to predict the next 15 years of an 18 year olds physical and mental development there’s always going to be busts like yakupov, always going to be good players that don’t quite live up to the hype like Ryan Murray and always going to be late draft steals like Jamie Benn.

22.) 25 May 2018 20:21:19
Well said unbiased Jim.



11 May 2018 21:31:53
Honestly I have no clue if any team would be willing to trade they're first rd in this draft for Patches. Maybe after pick 23 but then its an underpayment because most players picked after that are a big gamble


1.) 11 May 2018 22:14:02
As a leafs fan I’d give Andreas Johnson and the 23rd overall pick for patches. Imo that’s a decent offer depending on if you value Johnson as much as I do.

If Leafs offer that I think mtl tries to squeze a little mor ebut ends up taking it. Good offer for once VB.

Mtl: 6rd pivk 2018

Van: Boucher

Mtl gets depth center that has potential and used to play with Alex Galchenyuk. he's still 24 year old and needs to play in the nhl imo. he's good

I don't get why Toronto would trade a good young cost controlled top6/ 9 forward whos only getting better for a good top 6 winger whos cap is going to get higher ( salary bump for next contract) and stats are going to get worst. Nevermind adding the second rd pick.

Sam Reinhart himself is worth a top 10 pick imo maybe not top 5 but around 7-8. he's only 21 and proved to be a good 50+ point center. Then Oreilly is worth a good chunk, only problem is his salary so that might bring down his value.

Ya at 6 guys like Brady Takchuck ( proably gets pick 7-8) Hugues (4-6) or Oliver Whalstorm (4-6) will be available wich all have to potential to be just as good or even better then Patches then age factor kicks in. Hugues is also a really great D and if u can get him at 6 u dradt him.
