Pitt is apparently looking for a third or fourth line depth centerman and Letestu was brought up as an option.

Oil: Letestu
Pitt: 4th

Oilers clear out UFA and Pitt gets what they are seeking for? Not to mention he played in Pitt already.

That's been a rumor for a month or so now. They are interested in him for sure. If they don't go after a big name because of cost, This is their fit.
I like him, think he's worth a 3rd myself. Such a utility guy can play any situation. Would be a good fit. Maybe he signs a one year deal back in Edm in the off season too. He's from 2 hrs away from Edm I'm pretty sure. Loved it there. Great guy.

2.) 17 Jan 2018 20:02:22
I would think that Pitts looking for a more impact player for a deep playoff run for their 3rd C.

3.) 17 Jan 2018 20:53:40
Letestu is a good depth player and didn’t he actually put up decent offense and was used on the PP a bit? (Maybe just while other guys were hurt?! ) but I would think he’s worth a third and mid prospect or Maybe even a late second on its own if someone really needs him. Again I can point out what the caps paid for a guy like winnik from the leafs to do pretty much the same job.

4.) 17 Jan 2018 20:55:26
Just looked, it was last season I was thinking of where he had 16 goals. Pretty good for a guy like that.

5.) 17 Jan 2018 21:08:34
I have wanted to pawn of Pleky to pits for their playoff push, lol. Retain 50% on him so they can afford it and he is a good shut down center. Unfortunately i think your proposal is better - damn! lol.

6.) 17 Jan 2018 21:31:36
I’ve always thought bozak would be a good fit there behind sid and malkin, already has great chemistry with kessel if they tried splitting the big 3 on different lines again and bozak is good on draws, skilled enough to put up points and play PP if needed, but can check and PK really well. Problem is pens wouldn’t pay leafs enough to justify leafs losing him for the playoffs either.

7.) 17 Jan 2018 21:49:10
Letestu has been 1st Power play with McDavid. Drai. Lucic and Klefbom/ Sekera for all of last year and most the first half this year. Kills penalties. Takes lots of important draws. Great 5 on 5 4th line player. A utility knife for sure. Would be a good fit, and familiarity having already played for Pitts for two years.
16G 19A 35P last season. Not bad for $1.8M for what he brings. He is very very liked in the dressing room as well.

8.) 18 Jan 2018 01:50:33
Would like to keep Letestu but I think edmonton should trade their UFA’s! Maroon, Letestu and camallari. And I put the 4th because he has produced too much but honestly I could see him getting a late 2nd he’d be a good playoff pick up.

9.) 18 Jan 2018 03:31:47
Huh, guess i didn't know Letestu as much as i thought. My bad.



15 Jan 2018 17:37:20
This has been posted many times in the past, and I also just said this in a comment, but with how both their seasons are going and both teams needs (remember the depth) wondering how people view this now.

Oil: Nuge
Canes: Faulk

Nuge playing how he should, Faulk having down year, fits both teams needs. Not too big of an issue for cap for canes and helps oilers out by 2mil.
Is the value closer now or does everyone think Faulk is still “too” valuable for Nuge?

McJesus Christ97

1.) 15 Jan 2018 18:30:32
Good trade. we've just seen it so many times on this site.

2.) 15 Jan 2018 18:34:51
Like I said ya, but you think the value is closer now is what I’m asking? I obviously do think it is as that’s why I put it up again but ya just seeing how value is this year.
And I do personally think this could work.

3.) 15 Jan 2018 18:36:34
The Hurricanes will have to offer up something else significant like an unconditional first to go along with Faulk and his paltry 14 points this year to attain RNH from Edmonton.

A deal that involves these 2 would need more pieces as Edm would have to move a Dman back in the deal.

If I was Edmonton I would never trade Faulk straight up for Hopkins. 2 way players like Hopkins are more rare than a Dman that can score once in a while and definitely more than a Dman that only has 14 points.

4.) 15 Jan 2018 18:37:44
I'm not sure about this for Canes. I my Dubois trade proposal is closer tbh.

5.) 15 Jan 2018 18:46:31
I think it's pretty fair McJesus. Be always thought Nuge gets under appreciated. Due to Dmen being ad valuable as Bitcoin, maybe a small add on by Oil. like a 4th. or B prospect. I still think in the proper setting, RNH can be a 65 to 70 pt Really good 2 way centerman. maybe 70 is a stretch. but I wouldn't be surprised.

6.) 15 Jan 2018 19:34:00
No Buck. Your PLD to Montreal deal was not closer.

7.) 15 Jan 2018 19:39:18
Nuge isn’t even on PP1 haha if he was I’d imagine he’d have more points rn as well.
But like I said I don’t know if edmonton would add anything tbh from comparing both their years.
But I do think this betters Edmonton as we finally get our PP QB who shoots right! And is a good puck moving dman in general. Also nice contract.

8.) 15 Jan 2018 20:26:39
Pretty bad.

9.) 15 Jan 2018 22:19:03
Actually Hopkins just started playing on PP1 a few games ago.

Not that being on the Oilers PP helps on points totals much right now tho. lol.

10.) 16 Jan 2018 03:51:32
Hahaha ya actually tho our PP is garbage.



12 Jan 2018 17:22:35
Read this idea:

Oil: Maroon + Benning + Slepyshev

Isles: Ho Sang + Nelson

Reason behind the trade is that Nelson is RFA after this season and is struggling this year and Snow might be done waiting on Ho Sang to grow up and get rid of him already. Isles have injuries on the backend and Benning could be of service (or Davidson even) and Slepyshev and Maroon could plug in as serviceable wingers on islanders. I personally like Slepyshev and no clue why oilers don’t play him more.
Reason for Oilers is they get a big centerman back and then Ho Sang can be the skill put with Mcdavid (they played together when they were younger and are good friends) and surely that would make Ho Sang grow up a bit getting the chance to play with connor. But this is what I read. Thoughts?

McJesus Christ97

1.) 12 Jan 2018 17:48:46
Also reasoning for all Oilers players up there is they are all on cheap contracts as well.

2.) 12 Jan 2018 18:13:46
I'd rather have both the Isles wingers than the Oilers wingers tbh. And imo Benning doesn't make the diffference. and my reasoning is simply cause nelson is more proven, he's had 50 pts before and his contract is better than maroon, and between slep and ho sang, i think ho sang has more potential.

3.) 12 Jan 2018 18:54:10
My bad. Nelsons highs are 24/ 45. Still rather have him than maroon, espec since he can play dual position (w/ c)

4.) 12 Jan 2018 21:18:33
I'm staying far far away from Ho-Sang. Read what his coach just said about him
Bridgeport sound tigers head coach called him a baby and immature. After he was a healthy scratch earlier his week.
That's a huge red flag. I'd rather have E Kane in my team cause at least you can somewhat maybe tolerate the BS cause he puts up goals and points.
"He's a baby, he's immature, he's got a lot of growing up to do" Right from his head coaches mouth in the AHL.

5.) 12 Jan 2018 21:19:46
What? Maroon has less cap than Nelson right now haha and both are RFA after this season. And totally Ho Sang has that potential but his AHL coach just recently called him a baby and that’s defs not a good sign for that organization.
But ya I read this so not my idea but I think Ho Sang will be moved he’s hasn’t nothing but issues there unfortunately.

6.) 12 Jan 2018 21:28:16
Isn't maroon ufa? that's the reason why, if Nelson is RFA, more control over him.

I do agree with you though. Ho Sang could very well be moved.

I could see Slep + Benning for Ho Sang as a base tbh. I just like Nelson more than Maroon tbh.

7.) 12 Jan 2018 21:46:10
Ya ooops my bad.

8.) 12 Jan 2018 21:46:44
And yup throw him with mcdavid and I bet he’s not immature anymore he’ll know that’s his last chance.

9.) 13 Jan 2018 00:23:43
I bet he's maybe even more immature. He has done nothing to earn being on the best player in the leagues line. That's my opinion. Can't just hand him this opportunity when he's acted the way he has, He would just feel so entitled I would hate it.
They should target someone else. But bats just me, I can't stand the way Ho-Sang is. A healthy scratch in the AHL with the skill set he has? No wonder the coach said what he did. I've never heard of that.
I would stay so far away from him.



10 Jan 2018 07:02:00
This was mentioned earlier and it was very interesting to me. But I’ll make my own little twist on it.
With OEL most likely leaving coyotes in free agency might as well get something for him now than losing him for nothing.

Oil: Klefbom + Nuge
Yotes: OEL + Duclair

Klefbom would be a great return if they were to lose OEL and he’s also on a great contract. While Nuge is playing very well right now but does carry a big cap, Coyotes have plenty of cap space for it.
Edmonton get their PP guy as well as a top dman in general, and then also add more speed and skill on LW with Duclair.
This is also not with the insurance that OEL will sign long term extension in Edmonton.
However I do believe he would sign if offered (mcdavid, new arena, potential) .
I think this trade could benefit both teams but that’s just my opinion.

McJesus Christ97

1.) 10 Jan 2018 13:38:21
I don’t see why Arizona adds to OEL, not that Duclair has a ton of value on his own at this point but I feel like oilers would be very satisfied getting a far superior defensman at the cost of a good but expensive 2nd-3rd line centre. Maybe I’m missing something but I was shocked when you said yesterday the coyotes would take those 2 in a heartbeat for OEL, so maybe it’s just me lol.

2.) 10 Jan 2018 14:57:03
I like the base but think the oilers might have to add in a pick around the 3rd or so. Good post though!

3.) 10 Jan 2018 17:51:21
I see where you’re coming from but like I said Coyotes May lose OEL for nothing and that’ll be atrocious for them losing a star defenseman and getting nothing in return. And I added Duclair because for one he requested a trade, and two, he’s being absolutely horrible where as Nuge has been playing like he should have been his whole career. He’s playing more like he did earlier in his career where he was playing very well. And not to mention both klef and Nuge are young and fit Coyotes age group well just like OEL and Duclair did. Keeps the core young and promising.

4.) 10 Jan 2018 19:12:30
Okay. I know what you mean, I must be way off or a lot of oilers fans disagree with me lol. Like I said, don’t think it’s bad. I like both those oilers players and don’t think it’s a real lowball or anything, just didn’t see it as so cut and dry easy for coyotes to say yes.

5.) 10 Jan 2018 20:29:57
Good trade for both teams but i feel like oilers add a pick either a 2nd/3rd. I like it tho!



06 Jan 2018 00:01:51
With all the Duclair talk what about:

Oil: Strome

Yotes: Duclair

Would Coyotes do this? Unite the Strome brothers (not that it matters) . Both are RFA after the season but Strome makes double what Duclair does this year but that shouldn’t matter considering it’s just for this year and Coyotes have most cap space.

McJesus Christ97

1.) 06 Jan 2018 03:54:46
Lol Strome is so awful no team wants of him.

2.) 06 Jan 2018 05:32:51
Kinda agree with keyhabs he’s slow and does nothing. He has playmaking ability of an top 6 forward but his feet don’t match it. He’s very ineffective on the rush.

3.) 06 Jan 2018 05:48:53
Bet your team wants him lmao.

4.) 06 Jan 2018 06:47:38
Nylander yup hit that on the money he has flashes where he looks good and then boom looks lost sometimes.

5.) 06 Jan 2018 07:43:32
Strome 41GP. 7G 10A. 17P. +2. $2.5M. Age 24.
Galchenyuk 41GP. 9G. 13A. 22p. -16. $4.9M. Age 23.

Ya. No one wants Strome.
What a comment.

6.) 06 Jan 2018 14:37:55
Yup strome is good in the offensive end when the plays slowed down but that’s the only situation he can play in. Chuck isn’t special either I’m not sure why you used him as a comparison? Teams obviously aren’t lining up to give up assets for him. But I’ll take chuck over Strome anyday. Chuck is skilled and not Dumb ( like nail Yakapov ) so he could be a 60+ point player with a change of scenery.

7.) 06 Jan 2018 16:01:05
We'll galchenyuk has at least had one good season before.

8.) 06 Jan 2018 19:06:22
Galchenyuks best season is 6 points better than Stromes best season. Lol.

9.) 06 Jan 2018 19:31:31
Lol. Chucks 6 point career better season than Stromes is def worth double the money. What a bargain. No one wants Strome 😂😂. Man you guys are funny.

10.) 06 Jan 2018 20:18:52
Strome is 24 and at his age I’d compare him a lot to N. Beaulieu
BecaUse they’Re both awful.

11.) 06 Jan 2018 20:55:10
You would compare a D for a F

If Strome is terrible. Than what does that make Chucky? Numbers are super similar. But Chuck is double the money.

12.) 07 Jan 2018 01:21:29
What happened with Chucky is hard to explain or understand be he'll defenitelu have a better career.

I was reading an article and this is what they discussed:

If the oilers were offered Matthews and Nylander for Mcdavid should they take it?

Me, absolutely not. Lol. Cap reasons also being a big reason of course. But I still wouldn’t do it regardless.

But I wanted to just see what other people think about it.

McJesus Christ97

1.) 16 Oct 2017 11:23:53
As a leaf fan, i love it.

But, oilers should, and would never do that.

2.) 18 Oct 2017 18:27:52
I might be in my own here and I try not to be a homer. I honestly feel that the gap between Matthews and mcdavid isn't as big as some make it out to be. In saying that, there's definitely a gap. Matthews, or anyone else past or present can keep up with mcdavids skating, hands down.

But I think Matthews does other things better than mcdavid. And the combo of nylander and Matthews I believe can bring a lot more success than mcdavid alone (as incredible as he is) . Mcdavid at 12.5 and the other will probably be 17-18 mill makes a difference but if you traded 2 for 1 you would still have to get another player on the roster and for the same cap hit, you're adding a 4.5 mill man. What are you getting to play top line for 4.5 mill today?

I wouldn't criticize anyone for saying the opposite of me on this one, don't think there's really a wrong answer. Let's just all be happy that after the last decade, Leafs and Oilers fans get to have these discussions! Exciting time for a few Canadian teams which is good for all.

Tavares is a superstar now, and you don’t trade those players. Barzal emerged as a very fun player to watch this year but tbh he had to play two extra years in junior! He wasn’t projected to be this good but unreal player for islanders now his skating is phenomenal but you still don’t trade Tavares. You keep him and you have him, Barzal, bellows, and all those other guys who will come up.
