The islanders offer sheet to marner rumour is really picking up some speed.


1.) 05 Jul 2019 18:37:59
If you see you them moving out salary you know something’s up.

2.) 05 Jul 2019 19:26:54
They don't have to move out salary they can offer sheet and still have all summer to get under the cap. Move out Leddy and bring up Dobson and that solves that issue.

3.) 05 Jul 2019 21:18:33
Marner is listening but trust me he isn't signing an offer sheet from anyone.
He wants to stay here not leave.

4.) 05 Jul 2019 21:35:56
Habby, if you are trying to move a player to rid yourself of the cap hit, do you think you would be putting yourself in a competitive position to do so if you were already well over the cap?

Opposing GM’s would know they have you over a barrel at that point.

5.) 05 Jul 2019 22:43:46
Marner can sign an offer sheet to speed up the process like aho did. Aho didn't want to leave either. And he'd know theyd match.

6.) 05 Jul 2019 23:01:53
Unsportsmanlike that’s true but would you rather work to move dump a contract before knowing if you need the space or take a lesser return to make sure you get the player you’re going after? That’s how I see it anyway.

7.) 05 Jul 2019 23:56:25
It's Ottawa not the Islanders.

8.) 06 Jul 2019 01:32:53
@unsportsmanlike we are talking about nick lefddy here not Patrick Marleau islanders could move him at any time and they wouldn’t have to pay to do so.

9.) 06 Jul 2019 10:51:05
Nevertheless — do you not see how appearing to NEED to trade him would impact his return? You’re not doing yourself any favours by putting yourself over the cap first.

10.) 06 Jul 2019 17:28:22
Actually they wouldn't need to trade Leddy they could move someone else or put somebody on waivers. I don't think they would have to clear a lot of space. But in certain situations what your saying is true it's just in this situation I don't think it would make much difference if any.



30 Jun 2019 23:52:10
Hearing deslaurier is traded too


1.) 30 Jun 2019 23:56:30
To Anaheim for a 4th lol.

2.) 01 Jul 2019 00:39:48
Montreal clearing out cap for something big

Gardiner or Duchene? Both?

3.) 01 Jul 2019 03:37:51
Ya. not a good trade IMO.

4.) 01 Jul 2019 05:44:24
Maybe lee and ferland?



30 Jun 2019 01:35:02
Kessel to Arizona




22 Feb 2019 20:00:46
Jensen and a 5th to wash for bowey and 2nd


1.) 22 Feb 2019 20:59:12
Seems like Washington overpaid, just my opinion.

2.) 22 Feb 2019 22:23:29
i agree dsc.

3.) 22 Feb 2019 23:16:09
Yeah I'd sooner bowey to be honest.

4.) 22 Feb 2019 23:56:11
I personally never head of Jensen before the recent trade rumours on tsn, then I saw the deal. I don't know much about the guy but I'm thinking washington overpaid. Bowey is a solid prospect and a 2nd round pick on top of that? i don't know.

5.) 22 Feb 2019 22:57:30
I like Bowey, lots of people are saying he's a terrible defenceman so Idk. His numbers are good for a young defensemen tho.

6.) 23 Feb 2019 02:13:53
Boom boom he's not the fastest of skaters but he has all the tools to be a 3rd pair dman. Jensen isn't much more then that if any and he's in his prime. caps must like him though they signed him for 4 years.

7.) 23 Feb 2019 21:42:35
Jenson is good tho so it's not that bad for Caps. Bowie looks good but atm Jenson is the better D.



09 Feb 2019 16:35:38
Habs trade schlemko and froese to philly for weise and folin. The weise man cometh lol


1.) 09 Feb 2019 18:11:26
I love when people react "unbelievable" to a confirmed trade. change of scenery trade?

2.) 09 Feb 2019 19:14:25
Yes it is pkane but the habs needed a little depth on the right side D with juulsen out. So it might come in handy there too.

3.) 09 Feb 2019 21:16:31
I really like this for Habs. if. Weiss is same player he was. He played his heart out on Habs. maybe not the most skilled or talented, but I never remember being disappointed with his play. he's a 4th liner, who acts like a top liner, jus doesn't have the skill to be one but bring energy, unlike Agostino, who also thinks he's a top line guy. but is jus a mess.

4.) 09 Feb 2019 21:24:44
makes sense habby, is Folin much of an upgrade over Schlemko, i don't know much about him. weise seemed like a good fit in his previous time in montreal so that part makes sense.

5.) 09 Feb 2019 22:53:52
Weise is getting buried in the minors, so it looks like Habby is right in saying Montreal did this for depth for the right side defense. Folin was a victim of Flyer’s depth on defense. He’s not a bad player, but was healthy scratch this year a lot. He should see more ice time in Montreal.

I’m not too sure how this trade benefits Philly though, since they buried both Froese and Schlemko.

6.) 09 Feb 2019 23:00:50
Well he's a righty and schlemko is a lefty. Schlemko is actually better then he has shown in montreal injuries killed his chance of playing here. But he was never getting back into the habs lineup if folin gets a chance he could suprise. I don't see an issue with his skill set preventing him from being able to hold down a 3rd pair position. That being said they could both be in laval for the remainder of their contracts too. From the flyers POV I'm sure they feel the same way about the two players they are getting back. I could see froese coming up and giving them 20 high energy games and you never know a different style could work for schlmko too.

Number hockey news story of the day willie Nylander changes his jersey number again. Can someone make a trade or send an offer sheet or something?


1.) 15 Jul 2019 21:04:28
Number 1.

2.) 15 Jul 2019 21:10:48
U should call up Bergy and tell him to offer sheet Rantanen 5 years x 7.5 mill.

3.) 15 Jul 2019 21:45:18
Yeah or marner for 5 years at 10.4.

4.) 15 Jul 2019 22:07:29
You guys can stop with the Nylander proposals now he’s staying a leaf :)

5.) 15 Jul 2019 22:13:01
@vbbb wasn't a trade proposal bud and I hope he stays a leaf for his whole career.

6.) 16 Jul 2019 00:00:58
Yes I know directed at DetroitMantha.

7.) 16 Jul 2019 10:57:10
I don't know why he's changing his number before getting dealt.

8.) 16 Jul 2019 19:45:07
I heard Nylander for Kotkaniemi.

9.) 16 Jul 2019 20:58:28
I heard it was for alzner.

10.) 16 Jul 2019 21:56:36
Yes, a great signing by Bergevin in Alzner (@mantha NOT habby) Karl Alzner says “ joining the Montreal Canadiens gives him a better chance to win a Stanley cup than he had with the Capitals in Washington. ” quote from sportsnet. ca, NOT Leafs17.

11.) 16 Jul 2019 22:55:25
@leafs17 not anyone else. Alzner said he wanted to win cause he was frustrated with getting bounced in the 2nd round yearly. imagine how frustrating it would have been to get beat every year in the 1st round lol.

12.) 17 Jul 2019 06:27:35
I’ll end the childish stuff because I know you can go on for days habby. Mantha said Dubas was tied for the worst GM in the league and he just stepped in. I didn’t mean to offend you.

13.) 17 Jul 2019 10:50:41
I'm glad to hear that leafs17 like I said before I can keep this going for months not days. But in all honesty I would rather not.

14.) 17 Jul 2019 16:12:39
You are very good at arguing. Are you a defense lawyer by any chance?

15.) 17 Jul 2019 20:11:21
Nope just had a lot of practice lol.

16.) 18 Jul 2019 04:04:01
You guys got to be careful with Leafs17, his feelings are fragile.

17.) 18 Jul 2019 11:53:39
magine how frustrated Alzner must be not even making the playoffs anymore.

18.) 18 Jul 2019 14:58:30
Yeah I know but Laval will have a better team this year maybe he will make the playoffs there this season so he can look forward to that.

19.) 18 Jul 2019 16:10:06
Alzner should be playing in mtl imo, he's actually very solid defensively but just slow. If he works out this summer and improves his skating, he's a solid defensemen imo.

20.) 18 Jul 2019 16:30:56
Welcome back yupper. Not much else to say as an oilers fan eh?

21.) 19 Jul 2019 19:23:37
because everyone's a troll but a leaf fan.



09 Jul 2019 01:36:58
When you take in account contracts and salary cap is there any player in the league who is actually worth 4 1st round picks?


1.) 09 Jul 2019 05:51:35
I’d make the argument for McDavid even at that cap hit. Crosby cap hit is low enough at 8.7 that even paying that for the last half of his contract I don’t think would be terrible.

2.) 09 Jul 2019 07:37:51
Paul George lol.

3.) 09 Jul 2019 08:29:50
Always depends on which pick numbers it is, obviously. But if you assume it's a contending team and the picks are all between 20th and 31st overall, there's actually easily a double digit number of players that are worth that. Easily.

4.) 09 Jul 2019 15:21:50
Alex Lafranier I’d say next Season at the draft he’d be worth it to a a fringe playoff team with good prospect pool like the Avalanche and Maybe the home town Canadians although they should uses a few 1sts on defence.

5.) 09 Jul 2019 15:55:31
If I'm MTL I offer to wichever team has the first overall pick

MTL:Phoeling, Brooks, Suzuki, Romanov

? :1 overall (Lafrenière.

6.) 09 Jul 2019 16:58:05
I could lean toward a leffreniere type I guess. Considering the 3 years of entry level that follows. McDavid I'm not so sure on as he's on Edmonton now and there picks have been pretty high with him. Mackinnon or Jones would be good candidates but there current contracts are starting to get short. Kucherov would be close to worth it maybe.

7.) 09 Jul 2019 17:32:00
@detroitmantha only one of those players were a Montreal first pick. Caufield. Kotkaniemi poehling and sergachev are the last 4 at an average of 13th overall I'm not sure if there is anyone in the league I'd trade thiose 4 players for right now if I have to pay a 10 mil plus per contract for that player as well.

8.) 09 Jul 2019 22:40:44
I know that Habby, I just made an offer for Lafrenière.

9.) 09 Jul 2019 23:24:03
Ok then I probably wouldn’t give that up for him either.

10.) 09 Jul 2019 23:39:46
Doesn't apply to the NHL. The value of first round picks in the NHL is very different to the ones in the NBA.
I don't really follow the NBA but i'm pretty sure guys that are selected after around the 25th overall are expected to be bench players.
Lakers will be good with AD and Lebron so those picks will probably be very late.

11.) 10 Jul 2019 00:06:16
Paul Goege went to the Clippers not the Lakers.

12.) 10 Jul 2019 00:15:54
Yeah but all of the Lakers picks went to New Orleans for AD.

13.) 10 Jul 2019 19:41:53
Yeah, not to mention in the NHL there are 7 rounds and in the NBA there’s only two.
Every league is different with its draft picks so it’s really hard to translate that to a different league.
For example, in the NFL players who are drafted from rounds 1-4 are expected to start in their rookie season. (Obviously not all of them, but most)
In the NHL players need extra years to develop even if they’re like the third overall pick.
In the NBA you’re just basically filling up your bench for cheap.



07 Jul 2019 17:33:08
Unless the arbitrator rules that trouba has to play this year for a sandwich the rangers are going to have to clear some cap space.


1.) 07 Jul 2019 17:42:28
For a sandwich? What are you talking about? It says that the Rangers have 8m in salary cap space. That’s more than enough for Trouba.

2.) 07 Jul 2019 19:21:54
They have more then trouba to sign though bud might help to do a little more research.

3.) 07 Jul 2019 22:20:02
Oh yeah? Like who? Buchnevich? DeAngelo?
A 30 point forward and a 30 point defenceman are not not more important than Trouba.

Trouba will get signed to a contract that he likes, everybody else is second priority. Definitely not “a sandwich”. You really thinking New York Rangers care about signing Buch or DeAngelo over a defenceman that they traded for?

might help to gain a little common sense “bud”.

4.) 08 Jul 2019 01:08:20
Ok I wouldn't be too concerned about deangelo but buchnevich would have flirted with 30 goals this year had he not missed almost 20 games I'm not sure how they do things in Tampa but I know for a fact most teams like to keep those guys around so let's just say he signs on the low end for 3 mil they also have Brendan Lemieux who I feel they might want to keep as well so say 4 mil for the two. That leaves 4 mil for trouba you think he's going to like that deal? And this leads us back to my original post. they are going to have to make room., bud.

5.) 08 Jul 2019 01:22:54
And I never once said they were not going to sign trouba I mean obviously he is the top priority I was more just tryin to see if anyone had an opinion on who they might move to make room. The who's better marner or kucherov argument is getting pretty played out. Something new which could actually create an unbiased thread might be nice for a change. I don't think there is any rangers fans here so it might have a chance.

6.) 08 Jul 2019 08:34:31
Maybe they move Namestnikov.

7.) 08 Jul 2019 14:37:16
@ebs I could see that. possibly even kreider I wonder what they would throw in as a sweetener for someone to take mark stall.

8.) 09 Jul 2019 22:40:11
Why is Tampa part of the discussion? TyBa is an Oilers fan.

9.) 09 Jul 2019 23:26:07
Yeah your right vbbb well the oilers would probably let Buchnevich walk if they had him so I guess he had me there lol.



04 Jul 2019 15:29:24
Good time for someone to offer sheet marner maybe?


1.) 04 Jul 2019 15:50:46
Definitely! Toronto doesn't deserve him.

2.) 05 Jul 2019 06:20:29
loll, explain yourself Akashi.

3.) 05 Jul 2019 13:56:04
I’d take the 4 1sts but leafs would match anything less.



04 Jul 2019 15:28:46
Even though I'm not super excited by no means with the chiarot signing hopefully this means we are out of the gardiner sweepstakes


1.) 04 Jul 2019 19:37:00
Now I would take him at 5 mil per just the same.

2.) 04 Jul 2019 23:07:28
I haven't heard anything about Gardiner - has there been rumors about him since July 1st?

3.) 05 Jul 2019 03:52:17
I actually like Chiarot at this cap hit. He's a legit top 4 D in 70% of nhl teams. He's big, plays physical and blocks shots. Not great at taking the puck out of his zone but if he plays with Petry it will improve. I'm happy with the move.

4.) 05 Jul 2019 05:32:45
Thunder there has been a lot of rumors saying the habs are looking at trying to add Gardiner.

5.) 05 Jul 2019 13:57:38
Where’d you pull the 70% number from LOL he wouldn’t even crack the leafs top 4



6.) 05 Jul 2019 14:53:35
Ceci being a top 4 remains to be seen but Chiarot is no better.

7.) 05 Jul 2019 15:06:33
lol ceci stinks.

8.) 05 Jul 2019 17:19:18
Ceci might be a bit smelly but Chariot reeks.

9.) 05 Jul 2019 18:49:23
Chiarot would be on the second pair easily on Toronto.

10.) 05 Jul 2019 19:19:40
Chiarot is better defensively then Ceci and it's not even close Ceci does have the potential to be better offensively but I'd take Chiarot 20 points over Ceci 26 points every day of the week.

11.) 05 Jul 2019 19:20:25
You guys would have too a couple weeks ago and everyone on here knows that lol.

That just further proves benson is not worth more.

Little actually makes the deal worse from Montreal POV cause it puts them in cap hell to get a player they already have plenty of players of that caliber.

I wouldn't do it from a habs perspective.

These are actually facts yes but it's also fact that one guy was drafted 12th overall and the other was taken in the 2nd round. This doesn't automatically make one better then the other but neither does having a slightly better season in the minors. Charles Hudon was pretty good in the AHL and look at him now. One would have to assume also that Necas had a harder time adjusting to the North American game too. Language rink size etc. Right now I'm sure if you polled every scout in the league and asked them who they would rather have at least 95% would not take benson.

Actually it worked out really well in the 70s but I wouldn't recommend it now just the same.
