WPG: Trouba
PHI: Couturier


1.) 24 Apr 2019 14:15:23
No reason for Philly to do that.

2.) 24 Apr 2019 14:26:01
Philly would love to have Trouba and the Jets would do this but I believe that Patrick and a draft choice for Trouba is doable for both teams.

3.) 24 Apr 2019 15:29:47
Philly needs Couturier way more than they need Trouba.

4.) 24 Apr 2019 16:38:53
And philly also needs Patrick more than Trouba.

5.) 24 Apr 2019 18:10:53
I hope jet was joking.

6.) 24 Apr 2019 21:06:53
Jet is never joking.

EDM: Lucic
CGY: Neal


1.) 23 Apr 2019 22:09:57
heck to the yaaaa, realistically no from calgary but they do need some grit and muscle and that is what Frolik (i coukd be wrong i forget who said it) but somebody on the flames roster recently said they need that if they ever want to advance in the playoffs. I don't believe calgary looks at looch but i do think they get a big body.

2.) 23 Apr 2019 22:26:27
Think Flames take a run at bringing back Ferland? Not sure where they are at salary.? Or Simmonds?
They could use some more grit, but Lucic is like Alzner. the game has passed those guys by. Not sure what is wrong with Neil.

3.) 23 Apr 2019 23:48:29
No from flames.

4.) 24 Apr 2019 01:24:47
Im sure the flames locker room hates big looch hahah but there are options. Simmonds is a no, he declined to go to Calgary because his wife was in labor i believe but having a baby will not make him move. Better options: Micheal Ferland, Ryan Reaves, Matt Martin. I don't see why they didn't call up Anthony Peluso or Josh Healey.

5.) 24 Apr 2019 11:16:56
probably because they're too slow.



23 Apr 2019 22:00:46
What's everyone's opinion on the return for Trouba?

Top Prospect plus a 1st Round Pick?
Young RHD plus a pick?

Here are some suggestions:

WPG: Trouba, Dano
NYI: Dobson, 1st Round Pick 2019

WPG: Trouba
DET: 6th Overall 2019, 3rd Round Pick 2019

WPG: Trouba
NYR: Howden, 1st Round Pick 2019 (WPG)

WPG: Trouba
PHI: Patrick, Myers


1.) 23 Apr 2019 22:11:18
islanders trade is very interesting imo.
heck no from detroit.
bruh. all i'm going to say for rangers one that's beyond bad.
absolutely not from philly.

2.) 23 Apr 2019 22:48:59
How is the rangers one beyond bad? You realize it's wpgs pick going not the rangers?

3.) 23 Apr 2019 22:54:58
I think it will likely be a two or three piece trade for an extended Trouba. All dependant on the pick (s) / player (s) involved.

4.) 23 Apr 2019 23:16:25
my bad i did not realize that, with that in mind then no from jets. thanks for letting me know alpaca.

5.) 24 Apr 2019 02:52:39
At the draft it will be interesting to see what the teams will give for young, 50 point, 23 min a game first pairing, RHD in Trouba. Teams may overpay for him. I can see the Jets liking Patrick and a high draft pick instead of Myers.



22 Apr 2019 15:23:24
The offseason for the Jets:

Laine (bridge deal) 3 years x $7.5M
Connor 8 years x $7M
Morrissey 8 years x $6.5M
Myers 4 years x $6M
Tanev 3 years x $3M
Copp 1 year x $2M
Beaulieu 1 year x $2M
Chariot 1 year x $2M
Brossoit 1 year x $1M
Hendricks 1 year x $650K
Comrie 1 year x $650K

Let walk:

WPG: Trouba, Dano
NYI: Dobson, 1st Round Pick 2019

WPG: Perrault
MON: McCarron

WPG: Kulikov, 5th Round Pick 2019
ARZ: 7th Round Pick 2019

Sign Free Agents:
Simmonds 1 year x $5M
Brassard 1 year x $4M


1.) 22 Apr 2019 17:42:59
Laine won’t take less then 10.

2.) 22 Apr 2019 18:25:22
lol wat vbvbbbvbvbvbvbvvv?

Kucherov extended for $9.5 mln last summer. I really don't see how Laine would be able to ask for anything North of that, and that would be on a long-term deal (not a 3-year as indicated above) .

3.) 22 Apr 2019 18:40:30
unsports, tampa has one of the best tax systems in the league as they are not nearly taxed as much as other teams in the league and it is incredibly unfair. Kucherov technically makes the most money (or top 2) after taxes in the entire league i read. So he did not require to sign a massive deal of 11 mil+. Laine for example if he signed a contract for around 10mil a year he's probs going to walk away with around 5mil or so, its a huge flaw in the system and it should be worked out so its fair throughout the league.

4.) 22 Apr 2019 18:42:09
Absolutely agree with vb, Laine will be around 10mil. Also you can not compare him to Kucherov as the way those cities gets taxed is completely different and it’s so unfair such a joke. Besides living in Tampa with all the nice weather they also have the lowest tax rates or something.

5.) 22 Apr 2019 20:03:24
I think that's why it's a bridge deal though, shorter term at less money.

6.) 22 Apr 2019 20:49:42
yes he stated it was a bridge deal, but laine won't take that he will want a long term contract for sure. not sure if vb also meant it that way or not (who knows with him lol) but for sure i agree with him laine will be 10 or north of it per year and i'm sure he goes that route.

7.) 22 Apr 2019 21:05:47
While you are correct in pointing out the lower tax rate in Florida, the impact is overstated. For starters, income is taxed where earned, so only the home games matter in that regard. Also, there are several ways of circumventing that (structure of contract — maximizing the bonus and minimizing the salary, and also fancy footwork from a tax accounting standpoint that I won’t delve into here) .

Anyways, if the over/ under on a 3 year deal for Laine is $10 mln, I will take the under and gladly eat crow if I am proven wrong this summer.

8.) 22 Apr 2019 21:09:38
Montreal is probably not going to resign mccarron so you can have him for free and keep Perrault or just dump him somewhere else.

9.) 22 Apr 2019 21:43:22
oh for sure man if he indeed signs a bridge contract it will be under 10mil total then unless they go let's say 4mil/ year for the bridge. But no way Laine accepts that he for sure has proved his case for a long term contract.

10.) 22 Apr 2019 21:48:43
On a 10M contract I think the most difference there could be in taxes paid is about 1.5M depending on the cities. Seen an article from Oil nation comparing state taxes and how much would be paid on a 9.5M contract when Kucherov signed his. Also have to consider exchange rate because they get paid in US dollar.

As far as Laine’s contract goes, it’s a tough one. How can you pay a player 10+ after a 50 point season? A bridge deal makes sense for both parties unless Winnipeg thinks they can get him at a bargain long term.

11.) 22 Apr 2019 23:11:32
Isnt every team issue contracts in USD? Pretty positive its all american dollars never canadian, but i could be wrong i have no idea.

12.) 22 Apr 2019 23:21:47
I believe that Laine will sign a 8 year $9 mil per deal as when it expires he is only 29 and could get another big pay day. With the collective bargaining deal set to expire soon who knows what new signing restrictions will be put into place. Teams don't want to be holding horrible contracts like Lucic's so I foresee something drastic happening. If the Jets trade Trouba at the draft then they will need money to pay the player they will get in return so I see Hendricks, Beaulieu not being offered a contract and Tanev, Broisart and Copp being offered less money to stay. Perreault and Kulikov being packaged with another player to get some extra draft picks.

13.) 22 Apr 2019 23:57:29
Guys don't start the tax thing again. It a huge advantage for cities with no state tax. It's all on google for everyone to see. tampa has a huge advantage because of this that's why all their signings look like a bargain. Now with there playoff performance it would lead you to think it's not an advantage but it is lol.

14.) 23 Apr 2019 01:43:30
I agree. The NHL needs to find a way to level out the tax advantage. I am a Habs fan and their taxes are one of the highest.

15.) 23 Apr 2019 03:41:14
If anything he’ll get offersheeted if they low ball him.

16.) 23 Apr 2019 16:45:30
If its over 10M then it’ll cost the team 4 1st round picks so depending on the team I wouldn’t match it.

17.) 24 Apr 2019 01:31:22
I don't know what's worse, my trades or Vbb's comments.



24 Feb 2019 23:57:32
Couple trades I could see the Jets making, it's one or the other not both.

NYR: Hayes
WPG: Petan, 1st Round Pick 2019


OTT: Stone
WPG: Comrie, Appleton, 1st Round Pick 2019, Conditional 5th Round Pick 2020 (turns into a 1st Round Pick 2020 if Stone resigns)


1.) 25 Feb 2019 00:10:07
I don’t think it can go from a 5th to a 1st haha.

2.) 25 Feb 2019 00:31:39
I think the Hayes deal holds more appeal to Jets.

Question... What is the real value of a 1st Round Pick this year? Let's say it's from a contending team and will end anywhere from 24-31.


1.) 05 Feb 2019 01:18:09
It's probably the hardest place to draft in all the rounds. Your still expected to get a good player but way more often then not you don't. there are still a few guys in this draft that should be around at 25 that I'd be interested in. But rebuilding teams love to get as many 1st and 2nd round picks as they can leading up to the draft so a first anywhere still has value to those teams even in a weak draft which this one isn't.

I’m a little rattled we lost Lemieux. I wish we traded Petan instead.

Does a team like Arizona or Edmonton want to go on the path of draft and develop? Probably not, they’ve both been doing that for how many years now. It’s time for them to move some picks for proven players.

How is he not? He’s 23, posted back to back 60+ point seasons and is under a great contract for another 6 years. If the Jets trade him for a Top 5 Pick it’s a gamble and they’re not guaranteed an impact player.

Not Canadian Stanley Cup favourites. Awful goalie situation still, the bottom 6 and bottom pairing defensmen aren’t good, maybe average at best.

I like it because the Jets lose Kulikov’s salary for next year and because this will help them this year too.
