Toronto: Nylander

Montreal: Petry
I think it could be a good starting offer coming from mtl. What you think about that?

Mr PoK

1.) 13 Oct 2018 22:15:14
Lol. Dream on. That's a laughable offer that would be beaten by so many teams.

2.) 13 Oct 2018 22:57:09
Leafs can't afford to take on those two contracts. They would need younger cheaper pieces in return for nylander.

3.) 14 Oct 2018 04:16:09
Younger, cheaper and better.

4.) 14 Oct 2018 04:41:26
No jim just younger and cheaper. Two way forward that scores 20 goals a year and good 2nd pair right hand shot dman. You don't think that would be enough? If it was younger and cheaper.

5.) 14 Oct 2018 14:07:59
Byron would not make the leafs and Perty is far away from being a defensive workhorse who can log 30 minutes a night. If both players were 18 on a ELC leafs still decline.

6.) 14 Oct 2018 14:46:40
If they were as good as they are at the moment, and both 20 years old and on ELC, then sure. But That would be assuming they have potential to be a lot better than they are right now.

And just to put it in perspective, In the last 2 seasons Byron has 42g and 78pts (8PP, 3SH) He’s 29 years old making $3.4 mill. Connor Brown has 34g and 64pts (8PP, 2 SH) splitting 3rd/ 4th line duties. he’s 24 making $2.1 mill. I’m not saying Byron isn’t good, I’m not saying he isn’t worth $3.1 mill in todays league. I’m saying he’s older and makes more money than Brown, with a little more production. And if I posted Connor Brown as half of the return for a 21 year old Winger with Nylanders track record and his potential, I’d get roasted and, rightfully so lol

Think of what people say about Brown on here when Leaf fans post trades involving Him whenever a trade involving Byron comes up because the 5 year age gap and $1.3 mill wage gap makes up the 7pt difference between the players every day of he week. Brown is a 3rd/ 4th liner, and so is Byron. That’s not what we would be trading Nylander for

Picture this: Zaitsev and Brown for Sebastian Aho. Lol
That’s a top 4 RHD, and a player very similar to Byron, both are 4-5 years younger than the habs in This deal and both are cheaper than the habs in this deal. Can you picture the rants that would be spewed?! Lol I can.

7.) 14 Oct 2018 15:10:57
@VbB, Byron would easily make the leafs roster, but he would be bumping Leivo/ Johnsson out. You don’t trade Nylander to upgrade Lievos spot lol.

8.) 14 Oct 2018 15:38:34
Yeah ok. Lol.

9.) 14 Oct 2018 17:05:25
Keep drinking that blue kool aid guys lol. What a joke!

10.) 14 Oct 2018 17:35:23
Lmao. There's vbbs clueless biased homer self that always shines through. Byron would %100 make the Leafs lineup. Wow.

11.) 14 Oct 2018 17:35:43
Talk about another over exaggeration. Your back peddle will be funny tho.

12.) 14 Oct 2018 17:37:15
Come on Habby. You’re seriously going to start being a dick again over Paul Byron not being a 3rd liner? Lol what is the difference between him and Brown? He’s older, makes more money and has very similar stats. Brown was a 20 goal scorer at 22 in his rookie year. It took Byron till he was 27 in his 6th NHL season to do that. That’s not hab hating. That’s legitimate fact.

13.) 14 Oct 2018 17:44:07
Do you know who Joey Crabb is? He was the LW with Bozak and Kessel in Toronto one year because we sucked. That doesn’t mean he’s a first line player lol just because Byron gets opportunity’s in Montreal that players like brown don’t on a good team, does not make one a top 6 forward and the other a 4th line player in the grand scheme of things lol situationally, Byron’s a top 6 player. On 80% of the teams in the league, he’s exactly what brown is, 3rd/ 4th line wing with good penalty killing capabilities.

14.) 14 Oct 2018 18:00:45
Vbb’s is always drinking the koolaid but what was wrong with Jim’s comparison habby?

15.) 14 Oct 2018 18:38:00
So brown has never played on the leafs first line? And your comparable was the laughable part. Byron and petry are better then zaitsev and brown plus aho is better then nylander. obviously vbbb is drinking more kool aid then you today but your still having a few sips.

16.) 14 Oct 2018 18:40:42
Byron was 2nd on his team in goals last year what place did brown come in on his team? Put byron on the leafs he scores 30 and to think petry is not better then zaitsev come on man. That's just being biased leafs would give him away right now.

17.) 14 Oct 2018 19:00:32
Plus jim just cause someone doesn't agree with you I'm pretty sure that doesn't make them a dick lol. At least try and show some respect on here .

18.) 14 Oct 2018 19:27:06
just because 20-22 goals is 2nd on habs and 20 goals made brown the leafs 5th best rookie his first year, doesn’t mean they aren’t in the same class lol tell me, with stats to back it up, where this big gap between the 2 is. Because over the past 2 seasons, they have pretty similar numbers. Byron took 6 years to figure out his game, brown did it immediately.

19.) 14 Oct 2018 19:55:16
It's not hard to figure it out put byron on a line with matthews and watch his numbers go up up up. Just like everyone else. Take brown off the top line and watch his numbers go down down down. And if it's just a numbers thing how do you explain zaitsev being anywhere close to petry lol.

20.) 14 Oct 2018 20:30:58
When was brown with Matthews?! Lol and when was he getting top 6 minutes? He split 3rd and 4th line shifts for 20 goals. Just keep pretending to know what you’re taking about. Byron is Brown, except a slower learner/ developer. That’s what anyone with common sense can see.

21.) 14 Oct 2018 20:42:35
Also Petry has 70 pts -27 in hose 2 seasons, zaitsev has 49 pts -14 in the same years (first 2 in the NHL) while playing 20 less games. None of your arguments hold water. Petrys got better offence, worse Defense, but to say they’re not even close is something only you would say again. 4 years age gap and makes less money. Think about it.

22.) 14 Oct 2018 20:49:49
Yeah ok man let's just pretend for a minute that brown didn't spend time on the leafs top line that year. Paul byron was never the go to guy in montreal either so again what's your point? Or do you have a point? Or are you just trying to keep a fight going again? Let's talk about joey crabb again that was so insightful and important to the current argument. Get a life! Oh and change your user name.

23.) 14 Oct 2018 21:11:27
Here's one for ya brown scored 7 goals his rookie year playing on a line with kadri and komarov but then wait for it he scored 6 of his goals playing with matthews and hyman. And my arguments don't hold water lol. You don't even know who the players on your own team play with lol. And way to use the ole plus minus stat to your benefit ( the only time you use it) 3rd worst team in the league against a team that set franchise records in points who is going to have the better +_ hmmmmmm jim I think even you could figure that one out if you try real hard. think about it.

24.) 14 Oct 2018 21:26:35
Lol get a life? You’re getting all riled up like the hill you want to die on is proving to the world that Paul Byron isn’t a 3rd line player haha is that really the biggest issue facing you today? My name shouldn’t bother you as much as it does. Maybe you should take a trade-Rumor hiatus and come back when you’re more centered.

25.) 14 Oct 2018 21:28:24
The thing with brown is I’m not trying to say he’s a 1st liner or can have that production. I’m completely comfortable admitting he is what he is. Decent 3rd liner or real good 4th line winger who plays smart and can penalty kill. There’s nothing wrong with being that on a good team.

26.) 14 Oct 2018 21:31:09
If management, Byron, his agent or anyone else believes he was more than a 3rd liner, why would he just sign for 4 years at 3rd line money?!?! Lol he’s a year away from UFA, you think he’s a top 6 forward so he locks himself in for $3.4 mill when decent top 6 forwards like JVR and James Neal are getting $6-7mill?!? Such a fool man.

27.) 14 Oct 2018 22:23:11
Did I say he was a top 6 or did I just say he was better then brown. ahh I see. jim just lost another one maybe someone on here does know what he's talking about. Brown never played with matthews like how could you not know that? Lol. I think you need a break man it seems when you can't copy and paste something from google you actually know less then most everyone else on here.

28.) 15 Oct 2018 00:56:15
I have never copy and pasted something lol how is he better than brown? Explain. It took him 6 years to accomplish what it took Brown 80 games to do. He’s 29 instead of 24 and makes $1.3 mill more. Only in your eyes is that more valuable. Makes zero sense how he can be worth more. Find an example where a player is 5 years younger, accomplished the same and makes less and a team would say “I want the other guy! ” Haha.

29.) 15 Oct 2018 00:59:51
He signed for 3rd line money because everyone involved knows that’s what he is. Same as Brown. You don’t lock in at bottom six money if you think you’re anything more. I know you actually know that, just being a dick like I said off the start.

30.) 15 Oct 2018 05:06:18
Brown played with matthews in his rookie year and it's been down hill ever since he's been took off that line. Never scored 20 goals last year did he? Byron did. Doesn't look like he's going to get much playing time with matthews this year so you know what that probably means right? I will say this if they both score 20 this year without either playing top 6 minutes then I would consider them about the same. Still think byron brings a little more to the table. More dangerous on the pk and hits about 3 times as much being a couple things.

31.) 15 Oct 2018 05:36:34
And byron is faster.

32.) 15 Oct 2018 05:45:00
Why is he more dangerous on the PK? Quantify that for me. They both have 2 SHG’s over those 2 seasons. “attention all goalies, fear the short handed sniper Paul Byron, he has 2 goals in 2 seasons! Ignore Connor Brown though, he only has 2 goals in 2 seasons” haha so dumb.

33.) 15 Oct 2018 05:50:55
Brown has a better giveaway/ takeaway ratio lol who cares. It’s production/ money/ age. That’s what the league runs on. How many points? how much is it costing me? and how long can you do it for? If 7 more assists a year is worth $1.3 mill and being 5 years older, power to ya. Anyone else can see that they’re comparable players.

34.) 15 Oct 2018 14:05:00
But somehow 7 or 8 more points is worth an extra 4 mil when it comes to gallahger/ nylander. Pick a set of rules and stick to em lol.

35.) 15 Oct 2018 16:12:16
No. Both Nylander and brown are far younger than Gallagher and Byron. Meaning there’s a lot more growth opportunity for them. At 29 years old, Byron is what line is. At 24, brown probably is too. At 26 or 27 whatever Gallagher is, he could get a bit better maybe. But Nylander at 22, you’re going to pay him a portion of his salary for what people believe he will be. Much like Drouin. Drouin was not a $5.5 mill player when they signed him to that deal. But he was so young and talented they hoped he would be a $7 mill player soon enough and they would benifit. Again, not a difficult thing to understand for anyone but you.

And see, we have always disagreed, but you were always pretty smart. Which is why I call you a dick now because you’re just saying stupid things and pretending you don’t understand stuff that you’re clearly smart enough to comprehend. So your not stupid, your just a dick lol

Someone said they like when we argue so you turn into a WwE superstar and purposely get confrontational over nothing lol you listening to a walk up song while you type? Haha.

36.) 15 Oct 2018 19:42:17
I don't care for the wwe I watch hockey. Maybe if you were not so interested in that you might come back to reality and realize the habs wouldn't trade gallahger straight up for nylander.

37.) 15 Oct 2018 19:58:40
Lol 😂.

38.) 15 Oct 2018 20:15:55
yeah you’re right. They would never do that. That would make them better. They only make trades like Sergachev for Drouin or subban for Weber. You know, the type that turn a playoff team into a lottery contender lol Habby and Bergy just sharing notes.

39.) 15 Oct 2018 22:37:47
Yes hopefully that's the plan and we suck for 10 years and win a lottery then we can have a team that makes it to the 1st round of the playoffs too .

40.) 16 Oct 2018 01:19:21
Don’t be bitter about us winning a lottery. You said last year we made the wrong decision taking Matthews. laine was better lol remember that?!

41.) 16 Oct 2018 01:21:13
Or you just going to pretend you didn’t say that too? Haha.

42.) 16 Oct 2018 05:29:51
Actually I didn't but I did say you couldn't go wrong either way.



16 Jun 2018 06:48:31
MTL 1 rd pick Max domi.

Carolina 1rd pick

Mr PoK

1.) 16 Jun 2018 11:58:29
why? montreal just traded galchenyuk for domi. unless they can't negotiate a contract i don't see them flipping him that quickly.



14 Jun 2018 07:07:59
I think MTL looking for a second first round pick. They have anough tool acquire another one.

MTL: Pacioretty + 2 rd pick
islanders: anders lee and a 1 rd pick

I don't know if it enough.

Mr PoK

1.) 14 Jun 2018 14:24:53
Lee and Pacioretty are probably close in value but Lee will be the cheaper player. Easy no from NYI.

2.) 14 Jun 2018 17:19:38
If you change lee for someone of less value or a low pick this might be interesting for both teams. I could see Montreal making a proposal like this during the draft if there is a player they like available still.



13 Jun 2018 06:42:38
Bergevin already says he want a team hard to play agaisnt. So If Carolina chose Svechnikov with their 1 pick

MTL Pacioretty + shaw or 2 late second rd
Cal Matthew Tkachuk

Then Draft Brady and leave him in NCAA until he want.

Then trade Galchenyuk 1 on 1 vs Hanifin

Mr PoK

1.) 13 Jun 2018 07:00:21
no way from calgary!

2.) 13 Jun 2018 09:54:15
Big no from calgary and carolina by far

3.) 13 Jun 2018 15:55:47
Very easy no from Calgary, but I can’t believe you say ‘shaw’ or ‘2 seconds’ like they’re equal value in the trade lol habs traded 2 seconds for shaw and since then he had his lowest goal and point totals of his career and makes twice as much as he did when he was playing for the hawks and owed 16 mill on the next 4 years lol how do you think he’s still worth what you traded for him?!

4.) 13 Jun 2018 15:57:00
I guess I shouldn’t be surprised tho when you think you can get hanifin straight up for galchenyuk.

5.) 13 Jun 2018 16:35:49
Don’t see the big deal around Hanfin I think Chuck would have similar value with Montreal adding.



19 May 2018 04:21:49
Is that realistik to think that Montreal trade Carey Price to Carolina hurricane. The Cane need a 1keeper and they had many interested player who can retool the habs. I think about necas hanafin and Svechnikov. If mtl could get at least two of those it could be intesting to start négociation.
MTL Carey Price with a winger like biron.
Hurricane darling, 2 of those 3 necas, Svechnikov, hanafin and their first Round 2019.
I think both club could benefit of.

Mr PoK

1.) 19 May 2018 09:22:36
With his contract being what it is, no way Price lands you anything close to Hanifin, Svechnikov and a 1st lol.

2.) 19 May 2018 11:36:46
I know that price had 10.5 million contract but noah hanafin need to sign a new contract this summer. I think it would be hard to the hurricane to sign a long term deal under 7 million. So like darling got a 4.5 million contract and hanafin around 7 million it could interesting for both club.

3.) 19 May 2018 12:52:37
Hanafin, Darling And 2019 1st for Price.

4.) 19 May 2018 17:22:40

5.) 20 May 2018 00:38:37
Necas hanafin vs price is that fair.

Who do you think marc Bergevin will try to trade with weber and shlemko Côme back in the lineup soon?

Can we know where jeff petry want to be traded? He had to dress a list of 8 team I think.

Mr PoK

1.) 05 Nov 2018 22:32:10
He has to supply them with a list of 15 teams he will NOT accept a trade to. So when he signed, it was half the league, now they would be able to trade him to 16 teams since Vegas came in and will probably have 17 by the time the contract is up with Seattle.

2.) 06 Nov 2018 10:04:45
Schlmko or benn.

I know ceci could Help habs défense squad a little bit, but Montreal won’t Trade a second round pick for him. Habs have already 9 dman on the payroll and they are retooling or rebuilting their club. They will give much more ice Time to our young dman.
