To PHX: Jon Gilles and Rasmus Andersson

To CGY: Max Domi and 2018 2nd rounder (Minnesota)

Coyotes get a much needed goalie and defensive prospect and Flames recoup a pick and take a chance on a gritty scoring LW

To MTL: Sam Bennett

To CGY: Andrew Shaw and a 5th round pick

Habs get a young centreman with upside and Flames get a RW with playoff experience

Flames new 3rd line:

Domi - Jankowski- Shaw


1.) 16 Feb 2018 21:56:55
Montreal would jump on that trade in a second.

2.) 16 Feb 2018 22:08:23
Oh lord huge no from Calgary on the second trade.
As for the first trade tho I think Arizona says no especially if they are adding a 2nd.

3.) 16 Feb 2018 22:08:33
But first is interesting!

4.) 17 Feb 2018 06:29:12
On the second trade, what if Montreal change the pick to their 2nd rounder?

5.) 17 Feb 2018 08:58:43
Like McJesus said definately no from Calgary in the second one but the first is interesting. I could see ARZ being interested in Gilles and Andersson but I think Calgary would need to give up a bit more.

6.) 17 Feb 2018 09:48:16
second trade is an no from calgary. but the first one is a starting point.

7.) 17 Feb 2018 18:36:47
Shaw is 26 and will be a cap charge of 3.9 for four more years (4,2.25,2.75,1.9) 10.9 in actual dollars. I don't think its a terrible contract, but the four years attached to him is concerning for other teams forsure. If the habs could retain some of his salary it might give him some value tho.

To PHX: Jon Gilles and Rasmus Andersson

To CGY: Max Domi and 2nd rounder (Minnesota)

Coyotes gain a much needed goalie prospect and a shutdown D Man. Flames recover a pick and take a chance on a scoring winger.

Followed by:

To CGY: Andrew Shaw and MTLs 5th rounder

To MTL: Sam Bennett

Habs get a young Centreman with upside. Flames get a gritty RW who can score

New Flames 3rd line

Domi - Jankowski - Shaw


1.) 17 Feb 2018 09:49:28
first one a starting point. second is a hell no from calgary.

To TOR: JG Pageau

To OTT: SJ 2nd and Josh Leivo

While Pageau is having a down year, he is a young, right shot, defensive C that can score clutch goals. He comes in as a 4th this year and replaces Bozak on the 3rd line next year. Ottawa needs to clear cap space for Karlsson and Stone and are down picks because of the Duchene trade and if they move out Hoffman as well, they have room to take a chance on a young scoring winger in Leivo


1.) 04 Feb 2018 20:46:35
I think this is a good trade, except I do assume Ottawa wants to keep JG but this is a good trade. Maybe a little much coming from Toronto maybe.

2.) 04 Feb 2018 23:38:24
I donmt mind it as a leaf fan. Its an upgrade over Moore for sure. Only problem is its an OTT/ TOR deal, so itll be u likely to happen. But yeah, good post.

3.) 05 Feb 2018 15:26:52
I would love to see pageau in the blue and white, and he comes cheap for the next few years. He is def on my wish list for the deadline.

4.) 08 Feb 2018 17:17:12
I like this trade.



21 Sep 2017 01:02:54
Even though Demers ended up going to Arizona, the Gudbranson for Demers rumours got out showing that Vancouver does not value Gud as one of their top 4 going forward. He will also be a UFA at the end of the year.

TO TOR: Gudbranson

To VAN: Bracco and Rychel

Vancouver continues to stock prospects. Toronto gets a RD that can add some real muscle to their line up and PK. While all the talk is about who will win the #6 LD spot, I think the Leafs are also worried about Connor Carrick so they need to make a move.


1.) 21 Sep 2017 07:04:56
Pretty interesting but I don't think giving up Bracco is worth it maybe if it was Bracco straight up for him.

2.) 21 Sep 2017 11:45:47
If Demers can go for McGinn, then I'd say this is pretty fair.
Maybe a small, teeny add from the Canucks? Like a 5th?

Cause Rychel sucks. He takes way too many penalties. But teams like him because of his relative youth.

To PIT: Tyler Bozak

To TOR: G Filip Gustavsson and 2018 2nd


1.) 12 Jul 2017 15:22:36
I think if they trade Bozak it is going to be for help on defense.

2.) 12 Jul 2017 17:14:40
Yeah but currently they don't even have enough money to resign Brown. They are going to have to dump some cash.

3.) 12 Jul 2017 21:38:51
They got marleau and now have 14-15 forwards that should be on the NHL roster. The fact marleau can play centre and wing tells me that they will shop both jvr and Bozak (4.25 and 4.2 mill) and move whichever one gets them the best return. Marleau can be either ones replacement. They are 3.9 mill over the cap currently but that has lupuls 5.25 on it. That goes to LTIR in October and are allowed to be 7.5 (10% of cap) over till then. Brown will get signed. Brown is a good player but there are teams with a lot better RFAs out there unsigned. Don't think leafs are worried.

4.) 12 Jul 2017 22:41:07
Actually the way offseason cap works they're roughly 450k away from the ceiling but that includes 700k? Ish already applied to Brown. there's now talk that teams can put players on LTIR before the season starts and if brown signs for under 1.1 they can get him before they even do that. Leafs cap crunch isn't starting now. they're still fine for a few years.

5.) 13 Jul 2017 03:01:13
Jbs32. I was with you till you said if he signs for less than 1.1 mill. Zach Hyman just got 2.25 mill. Brown has top six potential and scored 29 goals as a rookie. He wants to play for his hometown, but he's not playing for less than fourth liners make. He will be around 3 mill on a short term deal.

6.) 13 Jul 2017 13:28:19
Unbiased Jim I wasnt saying he would/ should sign for 1.1 or under. I was saying that's what they have in offseason cap to sign him even before they use LTIR or make a trade. With low assist numbers I would be a bit worried about regression. Johnson got 10 mill over 3 years in a similar situation but with 14 more points and already playing top 6 center. Maybe Brown gets 6/ 2.

I don't believe that the Top young pairing RHD that Leaf fans have been begging for exists in the market right now but with the success of past draft it no longer matters. Picking up Liljegren and Rasanen fills some major holes in the system but they will need some time (probably 2 and 4 years respectively). The Leafs need to pick up a D man that can fill the gap


To TOR: Demers ($500,000 retained per) and 2018 PHX 2nd round

This solves problems for both teams. Florida is desperate for some scoring wingers after losing Smith and Marchessault. Leafs have to find a player to pair with Rielly so that he can further his development and I think Demers could be that guy. His contract lasts four more years so it fits the Leafs development timeline


1.) 27 Jun 2017 12:39:09
Don't think Florida is too desperate considering they could have easily protected those guys/ not given up two of them for nothing.



12 Jun 2017 20:22:29
Before the craziness of this week begins, I just want to list my ideal three weeks for the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Trade #1

To TOR: Josh Manson, Clayton Stoner ($3.25 mill cap dump), and Max Jones

To ANA: JVR (50% retained), Andreas Johnsson, Tobias Lindberg

Trade #2

To TOR: Niemi ($4.5 mill), #39th overall

To DAL: Rinat Valiev

Trade # 3 - Draft day scenario IF Liljegren falls to #11

To TOR: #11 overall (Liljegren)

To LA: #17 and Jeremy Bracco (I would only trade Bracco to a Western Conference team)

Leafs draft Liljegren at 11, Oettinger at 39 (or best available G), and Mattheos at 50

Leafs sign Boyle @ 3 years x 2.2 mill
Leafs sign Darren Raddysh at ELC

Once again, this is just my hopes so I imagine I will take a lot of slack for it, though I do not think I have said anything too outlandish


1.) 12 jun 2017 21:53:49
dont trade future all star andreas johnson, i love the guy don't trade him.

2.) 13 Jun 2017 01:10:32
I heard that Ottawa would want to draft Oettinger in the first round.

3.) 13 Jun 2017 01:41:55
Agree with BigZ maybe not star part but rather trade someone else. Hyman?

4.) 13 Jun 2017 02:47:06
I don't know about the first two prospects but I think if they were swapped with the 17th pick it would be closer on the first trade.



21 May 2017 21:46:27
I really think that Carolina needs to make a play for Duchene and they have the D men to pull the trade off before the draft.

To CAR: Matt Duchene

To COL: Jacob Slavin and Jake Bean

Caroline also has three 2nd round picks if they need an additional carrot. Duchene would solidify Carolina's centres moving Rask and Staal to their ideal lines. Hadyn Fleury can move up and take Slavins spot

For Colorado this would completely round out their D core with Slavin pairing with Barrie and Bean with Johnson. Bean and Barrie can run their PP, and Slavin and Johnson provide defensive anchors


1.) 21 May 2017 23:48:10
Take out Bean then it's Fair.

2.) 22 May 2017 05:31:22
No VB. Duchene >> Slavin straight up.



12 May 2016 22:48:50
Alright Leaf fans, not to totally quash the trading up to the top 10 rumours but the Leafs probably do not have the assets to do it. Pittsburg is continuing to win, greatly diminishing the value of their 1st round pick. Leafs are now looking at a bottom four pick and in this draft players from the 25-40 range are all very equal in talent.

Using a chart that was recommended by Elliot Friedman, which looks at the relative value of each pick in the draft I have come up with what it will take for the Leafs to trade up.

The three most likely candidates to trade are MIN, NYI, and FLA as they are all missing their second and third round picks this more (and even more in some cases)

To get the 15th overall from the Wild, it will cost: PIT 1st, SJ 2017 2nd, Leafs 3rd and NJ 3rd or PIT 1st and Leafs 2nd

To get the 19th overall from the Islanders, it will cost: PIT 1st, SJ 2017 2nd and NJ 3rd or PIT 1st, WAS 2nd and Leafs 3rd

To get the 23rd overall pick from FLA, it will cost: PIT 1st and WAS 2nd

There we have it folks, those are the traded pick value according to that chart. See which one you like best

(To get the values right I made some assumptions like the Pens losing in the Stanley Cup which mean their pick is the 29th and that SJ's 2017 2nd round pick would be around 45, meaning that they squeak in to the playoffs and lose first round)



1.) 13 May 2016 02:01:26
I like the 15th overall idea but we also have JVR, Kappnen, Bozak and Komarov as trade chips.



12 Feb 2016 16:06:52
What about this deal:

To OTT - Drouin
To TB - Chabot

At first glance, this might be a bit of an under payment for Drouin but it's probably the max I would give if I were the Sens. He's a top puck moving d man prospect that TB covets. I think they have moved past trying to get someone who can help them this year.

I have heard other deals like Paul + 1st for Drouin but I feel that is way to much for a projected 2nd liner and/ or possible bust, as Ottawa could draft someone like Keller with their 1st who is a similar player.


1.) 12 Feb 2016 18:18:02
Drouin is a second liner. He's still a projected elite/ superstar talent. Don't kid yourself that because he's throwing a tantrum he's a bust. Could effect his value but it does not effect his skill level.

2.) 12 Feb 2016 18:41:02
Drouin isn't a 2nd liner. If he was he wouldn't be sitting on his couch in Quebec.

3.) 12 Feb 2016 21:00:59
Bud do you follow the Lightning at all? He wasn't getting top 6 minutes in tampa because they have too many top 6 forwards. He was coming odd injury so they sent him down to condition/ get those minutes. Then he made the decision to go public so they couldn't bring him back up and the decision to sit on a couch in Quebec. He currently has the skill to play in the top 6 on most nhl teams that's evident to anyone whose watched him play.

On the second trade, what if Montreal change the pick to their 2nd rounder?

He's the exact type of player they would go after but that is a bit too much.

Thet are both pretty equal. Gal is bigger and more of a scorer, while Hub is better defensively and more of playmaker. Both are LWs though so really just a sideways move.

Switch the offers around (ie Landry for Bennett, etc) and it might be more realistic.
