Eberle (1.5 mill retained)
1st rd pick (N/A OVR)
3rd Rd pick (STL)
1st round (15th OVR)


1.) 08 May 2017 04:56:18
Value wise it seems good to me, not sure if it would be in the Oils best interest to pay Eberle 3 Mil over the next 2 seasons tho. Also wouldn't Oiler want someone more established then Pulock or is he close enough in your opinion? Are all these picks 2017?

2.) 08 May 2017 04:57:47
how is the 1st round non applicable overall? don't you mean to be decided not non applicable.

3.) 08 May 2017 05:46:25
@Kaner88 "N/ A" has three meanings, non applicable, not avaliable and not announced, look it up. Also nice comment on that but not the post.

4.) 08 May 2017 06:11:34
@hotguybabes I honestly do think Pulock could come up and be an NHL top 4, he has average skating ability, a shot that clocks at weber speeds, and has pretty good numbers in the AHL. As far as know, he also knows how to QB the power play and plays the first unit in Bridgeport. He doesn't get good exposure because resigning like Seidenberg.

5.) 08 May 2017 15:21:52
Sorry, Top 6 forwards don't go for a Dman that can't make the NHL yet.

16th + 33rd pick is a high end prospect D price. Not a top 6'er
Possibility of Eberle for Pulock + Dal Colle may exist as a 2 for 1, but Eberle + for someone that hasn't made the NHL won't fly no matter how bad the masses wish to paste goat horns on Eberle.

Reports the Pittsburgh is interested in acquiring Gabriel Landeskog, A rumoured deal that was brought up:
LD Olli Maatta
2nd Round Pick (2017)
LW Gabriel Landeskog
As far As I can say, it fits teams needs and Crosby with a landeskog would be dangerous.


1.) 11 Jan 2017 02:58:23
Couldn't see Colorado taking that. Their asking price is way higher.

2.) 11 Jan 2017 02:58:42
And could they even afford Landy?

3.) 11 Jan 2017 03:03:57
Would the cap work? I think a decent left winger replacement would have to be added.

4.) 11 Jan 2017 03:53:18
Make it a 1st that pick with be super late

5.) 11 Jan 2017 04:42:31
No from Avalanche. They would want more for their captain



06 Jan 2017 08:32:09
Reports that's Boston is eargerly Pursuing a deal involving Landeskog, of course Avalanche asking for A young upcoming d-man+, Brandon Carlo came up and they thoughtfully declined. Here's a reported deal being flung around:
BOS: LD Jakub Zboril
(2017) First round pick
COL: LW Gabriel Landeskog


1.) 06 Jan 2017 12:18:21
As Boston I would take that. I don't see Zboril as a savior on defense, and he's replaced by McAvoy who honestly looks to be better.

2.) 06 Jan 2017 14:07:35
I bet you would take that. Unfortunatly Colorado would laugh in Sweeney face if he propose this. Zboril is a bust and a late first ain't going to cut it. No deal

3.) 06 Jan 2017 14:11:23
I think you just gave the reason why Colorado wouldn't accept this trade too haha. They are going to try and get the best prospects not just good ones if they are trading their star players

4.) 06 Jan 2017 14:39:24
Boston would do it, Colorado would not.

That's selling pretty low on Landeskog.

5.) 06 Jan 2017 15:14:19
The second half of this report is that Boston countered with zboril and the avs declined. Avs can get much more for Landy, going to have to add more to that package, easy no by colorado.

6.) 06 Jan 2017 17:38:33
Latest possible package from Boston I've heard of his Zboril, Morrow, Debrusk, and their 2017 1st. If the Aves are looking for young players in return they could do a lot worse than this



13 Dec 2016 07:23:35
speculation from Oilers insider Bob Stauffer that the Oilers could in fact be interested in Jarome Iginla.
conditional 7th
-As we all know Iggy is 40 years old and Colorado looks like they may be a bottomfeeder team which may mean they may be sellers near deadline time, Iggy may waive his no-trade clause to play for a playoff team.
-this may be a solid move for Edmonton, Iggy is still a solid 30 point guy, A vet, and an Edmonton boy. If the Oilers are in fact a clear cut playoff team by Deadline a move like this could be similar to the Derek Roy trade, also upgrading the right wing depth, and Veteran Leadership by adding a 20 season vet, plus it's plausible Puljujarvi may need some seasoning in the AHL, scratching him 2 games every week doesn't seem like a great idea.


1.) 13 Dec 2016 08:10:18
Holy iggy still produces points. That's a low offer and also I think they retain salary

2.) 13 Dec 2016 08:11:35
I'd love iggy in edmonton as iv said in the past that they should try to get him for one more year, however he wants to go to a cup contender (if he waives) and that is not Edmonton unfortunately. So won't happen.

3.) 13 Dec 2016 12:28:14
Yeah they need to acquire somebody on RW so they can send down Pulijuravi, they should also look at Vrbata, Ryan and Gionta.

4.) 13 Dec 2016 16:26:28
Once again, Edmonton needs D-men not forwards. Especially now with Nurse gone long term. If the offer goes down, I can't see Gryba going the other way as he will be needed as soon as he's back from injury.

Deal could go down for a forward + pick though. There is a base here to do a deal, but likely it won't be a Dman involved.



17 Nov 2016 08:44:08
Rumours that the Canucks are keeping tabs on forward Evander Kane, and have some interest in acquiring him, A rumoured deal that came up was along the lines of:
D Ben Hutton
LW Evander Kane
Nucks fans have mix feelings about this, some don't even want to give Kane a chance, thoughts?


1.) 17 Nov 2016 10:53:17
No thanks.

2.) 17 Nov 2016 12:49:59
Easy no from Vancouver IMO.

3.) 17 Nov 2016 19:25:44
I know Ben Hutton is underrated and is a good young player, but I wouldn't mind it for Vancouver because they have Olli Juolevi. However the cap wouldn't work. So Vancouver would have to send salary over (likely Sbisa) and by doing so it would make more holes through out the line up.

To make a long story shorter, I don't think it will work out.

It's interesting that these last 10 draft years + set a bit of a trend/pattern. That picking in or near the top 15, when in doubt pick the Best Swedish defensemen available, its crazy, I have not found a single one that hasn't already made the top 4 of the NHL team to Norris potential, in the past 10 years. Makes you think about the future huh, this year, hmm
, Maybe Liljegren, Brannstrom. Next year, maybe Dahlin and Boqvist.


1.) 25 May 2017 17:53:32
It's not like there's a large sample size. There have only been like 6 Swedish defencen taken in the top 15 since 2007.

It's so few guys that it's basically meaningless. Should everyone start drafting random Germans in the top of the 1st round now because Draisaitl is good?

2.) 25 May 2017 21:23:58
^ I'd like that!



21 May 2017 23:53:26
The 2017 had been labeled one of the weakest draft of this decade, but regardless may provide some talent, so aside from Patrick/Hischier (the sure things). What draft steals do you think this draft may be able to provide, from any round, I'd like to see some opinions, here's mine:

1A. RD Cale Makar
I think he will be an elite offense defenseman in this league, he's guaranteed a year of college and has more years to grow a defensive game, if he falls anywhere near 10, he's a steal.

1B. C Elias Pettersson
I definitely think he has the talent to be the most talented player in the draft, he's just so agile and shifty, so strong in the puck and has an extra gear/slick stick, he draws penalties almost on a gamely bases and scores the prettiest goals you may ever see.

2. LD Jusso Valimaki
Same as Makar, but I just see so much Roman Josi in him, smooth skating, offensively, I've seen him around 17 in most drafts, which I see him being a steal if so.

3. RW Klim Kostin
I haven't seen much of his game in depth, but listening to scouting reports and what is available to me, if he's an elite talent and picked near 15-28 I see him as a steal.

4. LW/RW Kristian Vesalainen
I would bet that he becomes this years Miikko Rantanen

5. F Kailer Yamamoto
Gaudreau esque, although I see a bit more finesse and his shot being more of a weapon opposed to Gaudreau and his shifty/illusiveness.

6. C/RW Kole Lind
Smart Player, right handed, good size, C/RW, he's always in the right spots, a safe pick for me.

7. RD Connor Timmins
He's smart, smooth skating d-man, likes to use his shot and doesn't mind throwing his weight, honestly see him being a right handed Shea Theodore.

8. LD Pierre-Oliver Joseph
Personal favorite on defense, I love watching him, if he goes late first he's a steal

9. LD Erik Brannstrom
Oliver Kylington esque, he doesn't have the size, but has the skill

10. G Jake Oettinger
poor man's Carey Price, size, poise has exceptional numbers for a sophmore in college says something

11. C/RW Joni Ikonen
-I see him as a very similar player to Eeli Tolvanen, but being a pick hog and size may be pulling him back a bit


1.) 22 May 2017 00:53:39
couldn't Nick Suzuki be a steal too?

Idk, I've heard a ton of good things about him.

2.) 22 May 2017 01:38:36
Oh yea, he's a work horse, he's smart, has a decent shot and 96 points is already hard enough to come by on a team like Owen Sound.

3.) 22 May 2017 02:51:53
If Brannstrom falls to late 20s or the second round he would be a massive steal. Personally I think he will be really good.

4.) 22 May 2017 04:22:27
Yamamoto is a small player who has a lot of grit and surprising physically to his game. If I were to compare him to anybody that would be Drake Caggiula.

5.) 22 May 2017 11:21:14
Agree with Kostin, Yamamoto, Joseph and Vesalainen (depending where they get taken of course) others I would add would be Keith Petruzelli, big goalie, reminds me of Bishop without the puck playing ability, should go late 1st-mid 2nd. Lias Andersson and Nicolas Hague are two more that I like (projected mid 1sts) .



17 May 2017 11:29:05
2018 Draft already looks interesting and there will definitely be a plethora of unique talent to choose from, but the interesting thing is when you delve into the draft eligibles, the most notable thing to catch by watching these prospects are how many skilled defensemen are in this draft class, like I truly think this is the year of the defenseman topped off by none other than Dahlin. Anyways here's my early rankings for defensemen in that year. (I feel like each D-Man that makes this list has potential of being/staying a first rounder).

1.) LD Rasmus Dahlin - easy, generational d-man, 2 way who plays hard defensively but harder offensively

2.) RD Bode Wilde - always been considered a top 10 next year for a long time, possibly the best defensive two way

3.) LD Jared McIssac - competing with Wilde for best two way, did wonders for Halifax this season, biggest player on this list at 6'2" 209, pretty much a top 10

4.) RD Adam Boqvist - small defenseman at 5'11", but seriously watch this kid, can shoot it from anywhere with pin point accuracy, a true offensive talent, a lot like Makar

5.) RD Ryan Merkley - smallish d-man, may actually be the best offensively talent aside from Dahlin, showcased a great season in the OHL

6.) RD Evan Bouchard - plays for London, big two way, London use him in most situations

7.) RD Jett woo - reminds me a lot of Matt Dumba Mid (17ish) to Late first rounders

8.) RD Caleb Addison - He can still grow but at 5'9" size may be disconcerning, still a solid d-man

9.) RD Xavier Bouchard - another big 6'2" 2 way, the defensive depth continues

10.) LD Ty Smith - average size defenseman, picked 1st Overall in the WHL, had a decent season for Spokane, may pick it up.


1.) 17 May 2017 18:09:59
You forgot Andrei Svechnikov man. Projected top 2 with Dahlin. Jack Wise also looks like the next best American prospect.

2.) 17 May 2017 18:38:58
Sorry @FlyingV. I can't read lol. Didn't see you said just defencemen haha.

3.) 17 May 2017 19:01:30
Anyways about the post I agree 2018 is looking deep and strong and should have a solid first few rounds. I'd rank Boqvist higher but it's all close and early now. I'm a fan of Woo although I've had brief viewings of him.



29 Apr 2017 01:50:50
My top 31 defencemen (thoughts?)
11.)Ekman Larsson


1.) 29 Apr 2017 15:51:40
Oh wow. that's a lot of thought. I have a hard time putting a top 10. Lol. don't really have any issues with the guys on he list. jus a quick glance, I see Weber at 5, not sure he's that high anymore. and althoufb8 he will be probably top 3 soon, I don't think Ekblad is in top 10 just yet.
And after watching him these playoffs, Adam Larsson should be on this list somewhere.

2.) 29 Apr 2017 16:07:35
Personally I think hamilton and Risto would be higher.

3.) 29 Apr 2017 17:26:03
But where is Parayko?

4.) 29 Apr 2017 17:49:36
Shattenkirk is too high, guy is a defencive liability and invisible without the puck.

5.) 29 Apr 2017 18:03:41
Where's Marincin?

6.) 29 Apr 2017 22:46:22
Defensive* I can't spell sometimes.

7.) 30 Apr 2017 01:47:08
Who cares about Parayko? Where is POLAK!?

i'm flattered that i'm 30th.

8.) 30 Apr 2017 03:35:21
Shattenkirk with a pretty bad game 😬.



01 Mar 2017 01:58:05
Confirmed trade:
EDM-Brandon Davidson
MTL-David Desharnais
thoughts: I think like many Oilers fans It's an underwhelming return. Desharnais is a squirt at 5'7" with a 57% faceoff and nothing more than a 3-4 Center. But to be fair I think Chia was grinding to move him for any kind of value 3rd line Center before the expansion, just wasn't any takers for a 1 for 1 besides Montreal.


1.) 01 Mar 2017 20:03:25
He has a 47% faceoff percentage this year.
So the faceoff dot didn't improve with this trade as needed.

Hopefully he gets a boost from the trade and plays like a UFA looking for a contract.

Avs would want at least a 1st.

I'd assume that pick is top 10 again and early second, the only major change is Varlamov is back, but will he play good? 🤔 Anyways without the "bad contract" is around the price that Sakic wants.

Seems true, they put so much faith into Brandon Montour who already has a similar game to Vatanen with a slight grittiness as well.

It's probably closer than you think, not knowing much about Caleb Jones, but I also think Edmonton may have added a 2nd if they had one alongside Jones without any Eberle salary retention. Also don't forget that 500k off of Eberle holds a bit of value as well, with the 3rd and Jones combined.
